Keloid-Earlobes-NYC-(212)-644-9494-New-York,-New York, NY (212)-644-9494 Keloid of the Earlobes Keloids of the earlobe pose a complex management problem. They are relatively common sequelae of trauma or irritation to the skin of the earlobe, and usually appear in predisposed individuals as benign, smooth, globular outgrowths on one or both sides of the earlobe. Depending on their size, depth, and duration, a number of treatment approaches have been developed and applied over the years with varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, no single therapeutic modality has proven to be 100% efficacious. A retrospective ***ysis of 24 patients with clinically and histologically documented earlobe keloids was undertaken. In addition, a review of the literature on earlobe keloids was conducted. Surgical excision of keloids with one dose of intraoperative intralesional steroid resulted in no recurrence in 80% of patients at a mean follow-up of 31 months. The addition of radiation to this combination resulted in a recurrence-free rate of 100%. Postoperative pressure therapy, used alone, though claimed to be effective, did not show much benefit. However, patient compliance with this therapeutic modality was poor.
Steamboat Rock -- Vistas and Wildflowers galore! - Electric City, United States A TripAdvisor™ TripWow video of a travel blog to Steamboat Rock State Park, United States by TravelPod blogger Drfumblefinger. See this TripWow and more at Steamboat Rock -- Vistas and Wildflowers galore! "Like the black monolith sitting on the Serengeti plain in the film 2001:A Space Odyssey, the large basalt mass of Steamboat Rock is a distinct landmark in Central Washington state. Steamboat Rock State Park is a dozen miles southwest of the Columbia River's massive Grand Coulee Dam. The Park is on a peninsula adjoining Banks Lake and is accessed by route 155. Steamboat Rock itself is a high wind-blown mesa above the lake, but the surrounding park is a popular recreational venue with campgrounds, a nice swimming beach, hiking trails, and boat launch providing access to the recreational fisheries of Banks Lake. I have discussed the Channeled Scablands of Central Washington in a prior post on this blog. Briefly, this area was formed by the erosive effect of the Missoula Floods which occurred at the end of the last great Ice Age. As a sequelae of the severe but intermittent flooding, deep canyons -- called coulees -- were formed. The largest of these is Grand Coulee, a now defunct channel of the Columbia River which is home to Steamboat Rock (historically an island in old course of the Columbia River). The deserts of central Washington are ideal places for hiking during the spring (end of March thru May). The weather is usually dry, warm and pleasant ...
Dr Rached Daoud healed me of being paralysed Fares Njeim on Heya TV tells how Dr Daoud healed his back miraculous and saved him of paralysis and cured the eyes of his son. I was suffering of back pain with progressive severe calcifications of my vertebral bones that were causing compression on my spinal cord. The neurosurgeons decided to do a surgery for my back because otherwise of not doing urgently a surgical operation I would get soon completely paralyzed. They advised me is better to accept their surgical treatment that has prognostic of leaving me with sequelae of post-operation complications of semi-paralysis than to remain without accepting surgery and soon end completely paralyzed on a wheel chair. I went to many physicians all over the world, in United States of America and Russia etc, and the only answer for the solution of my case is to accept the surgical operation with all its complications. I heard about Dr Daoud and he was my last resort; I visited Dr Daoud in his clinic presenting him my case in which my spinal cord had became grosser in its size than its vertebral cannel that was narrowed due to the calcification. Dr Daoud studied my case and he started to explain to me about his techniques and about his abilities to heal my case. I replied to him, "I do not need any theoretical explanations of what you are going to do for me, start and treat my case and in face of what the result is we can talk". Dr Daoud worked on my back with his hands a session of fif*** minutes and I was cured. I became able ...
Traumatic Injury and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Hyperbaric Chamber : Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy TBI : Immediately after a brain injury, brain cells can be inactivated temporarily by local, injury related sequelae such as ischemia and edema which are thought to compromise local perfusion.5 This observation forms part of the rationale for the use of HBOT, which increases blood flow to the damaged areas of the brain, as documented by serial Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography(SPECT) scans and other techniques. In some experimental models of acute cerebral ischemia and acute carbon monoxide poisoning, HBOT prevents cell death.70 The mechanism is unclear. Even if redistribution of cerebral blood flow is a factor, the effects of oxygen on the cellular and inflammatory response to injury may be more important.70 Recently, for example, in a rat model of focal cerebral ischemia, HBOT reduced brain leukocyte myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, which is produced by white blood cells (polymorphonuclear neutrophils) and is a marker of the degree of inflammation. Rats randomized to HBOT had reduced infarct size and improved neurological outcomes compared with untreated rats, and the degree of neurologic damage was highly correlated with the level of MPO activity.75 In a separate model of cardiac arrest and resuscitation, the same investigators found that dogs treated with HBOT had better neurological outcomes and, histologically, fewer dying neurons than dogs treated ...

Pressão no Trabalho "Quem Agüenta"? Pressure at Work "Who Hold on"? This is a difficult question to answer, since every human being responds differently to this question. Many will say that the pressure is part of the day-to-day organizations and the world moves to more and more professional terms used to stress and physical and emotional exhaustion. But how is that good? Here's an example, another day goes out of the car and stopped behind a vehicle beacon when it appeared the green light, the car in front did not leave, fractions of seconds and I was honking and stressed. That's right a split second and my mood changed. That is what is happening out there today, people are increasingly stressed and pressured at work, taking the pressure it personally. If you are a leader you need to achieve goals every day, can you imagine will reflect the pressure that their superiors are clear that in exercising its employees. Let's not delude ourselves, thinking that the world that we are globalized, we can work without goals to meet, or even no responsibility for the results of the organization. But it is clear that the leader can and should make the day-to-day your team is full of pleasure, to stimulate the challenges of new targets of course, motivating them to perform their tasks as efficiently every time. It's how we started this article, every human being responds differently to pressure, too much is extremely harmful to health, even to obtain long-term results, since we are talking about human beings and that ...

10.143GYN Laparoscopic Diagnosis of Postpartum Ovarian Vein Thrombosis: An Unpredictable Event TITLE: Laparoscopic Diagnosis of Postpartum Ovarian Vein Thrombosis: An Unpredictable Event Introduction: Ovarian vein thrombosis is a rare but potentially serious postpartum complication that occurs in 0.05% to 0.18% of pregnancies and is diagnosed on the right side in 80% to 90% of the cases. Case Report: A 32-year-old woman presented to our emergency department at 15 days postpartum with severe abdominal pain, fever, and abdominal distension. Abdominal examination revealed right lower quadrant pain with rebound tenderness. The plain abdominal radiography evidenced a diffuse fecal stasis; abdominal ultrasound showed the presence of free fluid in the Douglas' pouch and between small bowel loops. Diagnosis of acute appendicitis was made. The patient immediately underwent explorative laparoscopy; at surgery, a hard tumorous anomaly consistent with right ovarian vein thrombosis was found. Laparoscopic ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis. Anticoagulation therapy and antibiotics were instituted. CT-scan confirmed the presence of thrombosis up to the vena cava. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 4. At 1-month follow-up, she remained stable and symptom free. Conclusion: Even though postpartum ovarian vein thrombosis is rare, recognition and treatment is needed to institute adequate therapy and avoid potential serious sequelae. The diagnosis can be established by ultrasound, CT scan, and MRI examinations. Although, as in the case described, the limitation of US ...

Sandra Graham - My Taxi Story Sandra Graham My name is Sandra Graham, I had Polio at age nine and I have been dealing with Post-Polio Sequelae for the past 30 years. I no longer use taxicabs in Las Vegas. I opted not to use them anymore after having bad experiences trying to get my wheelchair into the cabs. On two occasions my chair was not strapped in, it just sat in a trough in the back of the cab. I didn't feel safe and it was bad for my back. I was very uncomfortable. I was also stranded by a cab driver for one hour and forty-five minutes, and I ended up with a slight heat stroke that day. http
Tooth Grinding "bruxism" home remedies and cures "teeth grinding" bit.ly website Signs, symptoms and sequelae ---------------------------- Bruxism can result in abnormal wear patterns of the occlusal surface, abfractions and fractures in the teeth. This type of damage is categorised as a sign of occlusal trauma. Over time, dental damage will usually occur. Bruxism is the leading cause of occlusal trauma and a significant cause of tooth loss and gum recession. In a typical case, the canines and incisors of the opposing arches are moved against each other laterally, ie with a side-to-side action by the lateral pterygoid muscles that lie medial to the temporomandibular joints bilaterally. This movement abrades tooth structure, and can lead to the wearing down of the incisal edges of the teeth. People with bruxism may also grind their posterior teeth, which will wear down the cusps of the occlusal surface. Bruxing can be loud enough to wake a sleeping partner. Some individuals will clench the jaw without significant lateral movements. Eventually, bruxing shortens and blunts the teeth being ground, and may lead to myofacial muscle pain and headaches. In severe, chronic cases, it can lead to arthritis of the temporomandibular joints. Most bruxers are not aware of their bruxism and only 5-10% go on to develop symptoms such as jaw pain and headache. Teeth hollowed by previous decay (caries), or dental drilling, may collapse, as the cyclic pressure exerted by bruxism is extremely taxing on the tooth structure.

What is an Interventional Cardiologist? Interventional cardiology is a branch of the medical specialty of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter based treatment of structural heart diseases. Andreas Gruentzig is considered the father of interventional cardiology. A large number of procedures can be performed on the heart by catheterization. This most commonly involves the insertion of a sheath into the femoral artery (but, in practice, any large peripheral artery or vein) and cannulating the heart under X-ray visualization (most commonly fluoroscopy, a real-time x-ray. The radial artery may also be used for cannulation; this approach offers several advantages, including the accessibility of the artery in most patients, the easy control of bleeding even in anticoagulated patients, the enhancement of comfort because patients are capable of sitting up and walking immediately following the procedure, and the near absence of clinically significant sequelae in patients with a normal Allen test.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning / Educational Video Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. Public domain video from CDC. Carbon monoxide (sometimes referred to as CO) is a colorless, odorless gas produced by burning material containing carbon. Carbon monoxide poisoning can cause brain damage and death. You can't see it, smell it, or taste it; but carbon monoxide can kill you. Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America. This odorless, tasteless, and colorless gas is known as the "Silent Killer." The Centers for Disease Control estimates that carbon monoxide poisoning claims nearly 500 lives, and causes more than 15000 visits to hospital emergency departments annually. Carbon monoxide is produced by common household appliances. When not properly ventilated, carbon monoxide emitted by these appliances can build up. Early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning such as headaches, nausea, and fatigue, are often mistaken for the flu because the deadly gas goes undetected in a home. Prolonged exposure can lead to brain damage and even death. Carbon monoxide is formed when organic compounds burn. The most common sources are motor vehicle exhaust, smoke from fires, engine fumes, and nonelectric heaters. Carbon monoxide poisoning is often associated with malfunctioning or obstructed exhaust systems and with suicide attempts. Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs after the inhalation of carbon monoxide gas. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a product of combustion of organic matter under conditions of restricted oxygen supply ...

Living with Sleep Apnea - part 1 Courtesy of - Patients talk about diagnosis and living with Sleep Apnea. Sleep apnea is best described as a sleep disorder characterised by having one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep. Each pause in breathing, called an apnea, can last from a few seconds to minutes, and may occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour. Sleep apnea is diagnosed with an overnight sleep test called a polysomnogram, or a "sleep study". There are three distinct forms of sleep apnea central, obstructive, and complex (ie, a combination of central and obstructive) constituting 0.4%, 84% and 15% of cases respectively. Breathing is interrupted by the lack of respiratory effort in central sleep apnea; in obstructive sleep apnea, breathing is interrupted by a physical block to airflow despite respiratory effort. In complex (or "mixed") sleep apnea, there is a transition from central to obstructive features during the events themselves. Regardless of type, the individual with sleep apnea is rarely aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening. Sleep apnea is recognized as a problem by others witnessing the individual during episodes or is suspected because of its effects on the body (sequelae). Symptoms may be present for years (or even decades) without identification, during which time the sufferer may become conditioned to the daytime sleepiness and fatigue associated with significant levels of sleep disturbance.
The Treatment of Cerebral Ischemia Stroke with Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Therapy (OHP) The treatment of a patient for three and one-half months, following occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery with the associated neurological sequelae, with hyperbaric oxygen combined with methyldopa and hydrochlorthazide is presented. Treatment scheduled was two and one-half atmospheres absolute. The treatment was interrupted after 15 treatments to rule out spontaneous remission for a period of 30 days, and no further improvement occurred until treatments were reinstituted. The dramatic return to a near normal state during treatment appears to indicate that he did benefit from therapy.

Brain Damage Data from Marijuana Use / Anti-Marijuana Educational Video PSA Data Show Anatomical Brain Abnormalities from Marijuana Use. Credits at end of video. Regional Brain Abnormalities Associated With Long-term Heavy Cannabis Use. Murat Yücel, PhD, MAPS; Nadia Solowij, PhD; Colleen Respondek, BSc; Sarah Whittle, PhD; Alex Fornito, PhD; Christos Pantelis, MD, MRCPsych, FRANZCP; Dan I. Lubman, MB ChB, PhD, FRANZCP; General Psychiatry. 2008;65(6):694-701. In the human brain, the hippocampus is associated with the regulation of emotion and memory, while the amygdala controls fear and aggression. Recently a study was conducted by Dr. Murat Yücel and associates from the ORYGEN Research Centre and the Neuropsychiatry Centre at the University of Melbourne in order to determine whether long-term heavy cannabis use is associated with gross anatomical abnormalities in two cannabinoid receptor--rich regions of the brain, the hippocampus and the amygdala. In the study, Yucel's team did high-resolution MRIs on 15 men who smoked more than five joints a day for more than 10 years with no history of poly-drug abuse. They compared those with scans of 16 men who did not use marijuana. In addition, all the men took verbal memory tests and were examined for symptoms of psychiatric disorders. Results indicated that the hippocampus of marijuana users was 12 percent smaller, and that the amygdala of marijuana users was 7.1 percent smaller than among nonusers. Cannabis use also was associated with sub-threshold symptoms of psychotic disorders. Lead researcher Murat ...

Chronic Medical Cannabis Use by US Legal Patients, Part 3 Before giving results of the "Missoula Study" of four legal medical marijuana patients, Dr. Ethan Russo first examines the medicine itself - "marijuana cigarettes" from Sativa genetics; grown at the Univ. of Mississippi; freeze-dried and rolled at in NC; full of broad leaf, stems and seeds. Then the govenment/pharmaceutical alternative - dronabinol (synthetic THC marketed as Marinol(tm). Largely ineffective, patients also complain about getting uncomfortably high, as conversion by the liver boosts the psychoactive levels of THC. Finally, Dr. Russo gives the conclusions of the IND patient study: 1. Cannabis smoking, even of a crude, low-grade product, provides effective symptomatic relief of pain, muscle spasms and intraocular pressure... 2...Cannabis patients are able to reduce or eliminate other prescription medicines and their accompanying side-effects. 3. Clinical Cannabis provides an improved quality of life... 4. Side effect profile of NIDA Cannabis in chronic usage suggests some mild pulminary risk. 5. No malignant deteriation has been observed. 6...no neuropsychological or neurological deteriation has been observed. 7. No endocrine, hematological, immunological sequelae have been observed. Recommendations: 1. Improvements in US clinical Cannabis...sterilized, potent, organically-grown unfertilized female flower tops... 2..."Compassionate IND" should be reopened and extended... 3...laws amended to provide clinical Cannabis to suitable candidates. * Editer's note ...

Wiki BioBomb info. Very interesting The M33 was an air-released munition: released at high altitude, it would eject its bomblets while still aloft. Each bomblet would then explode using its own detonator. The US Army Chemical Corps selected Brucella suis as its first mass-produced biological agent in 1949. Tests paved the way for the first mass-produced biological weapon in the US arsenal in 1952. The M33 cluster bomb was a 500-pound (lb) biological munition that initially carried the biological agent Brucella suis. Brucella spp. are small, Gram-negative, non-motile, non-spore-forming rods, which function as facultative intracellular parasites that cause chronic disease, which usually persists for life. In the first stage of the disease, septicaemia occurs and leads to the classic triad of undulant fevers, sweating and migratory arthralgia and myalgia. In blood tests, is characteristic the leukopenia and anaemia, some elevation of AST and ALT and positivity of classic Bengal Rose and Huddleson reactions. This complex is, at least in Portugal, known as the Malta fever. During episodes of Malta fever, melitococcemia can usually be demonstrated by means of blood culture in tryptose medium or Albini medium. If untreated, the disease can give origin to focalizations or become chronic. The focalizations of brucellosis occur usually in bones and joints and spondylodiscitis of lumbar spine accompanied by sacroiliitis is very characteristic of this disease. Orchitis is also frequent in men. The ...
