Jennifer Mannino and Elizabeth Cotter

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: January 09, 2016

Non-operative Treatment for Extensive Skin Necrosis of a Neonatal Dorsal Foot caused by Extravasation

Hiromu Masuoka, Susumu Saito, Yoko Nakamura and Shigehiko Suzuki

Article Type: Short Communication | First Published: January 09, 2016

We herein describe two cases of non-surgical treatment for skin necrosis of the dorsum of the neonatal foot caused by extravasation. In both the cases, closure of the defects was achieved after 3 months of conservative treatment without any complications. Although the defects occupied almost all of the dorsal skin of the foot, no significant contracture disabling the toe or ankle occurred during the maximum follow-up period of 9 years. Non-surgical treatments could be an alternative treatment fo...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 26, 2016

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic, severe connective tissue disorder characterized by a microangiopathy and excess deposition of connective tissue matrix in the skin and internal organs.

It is a more frequent rare disease in women between 15 and 45 years old. The cause of SLE is still unknown; however, there is a loss of the regulatory mechanisms which maintain ...

Severe Bradycardia after Topical Use of Papaverine during a Pons Cavernoma Surgery

Demian Manzano Lopez Gonzalez, Gerardo Conesa Bertran and Jesus Lafuente Baraza

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 05, 2015

Papaverine is a potent smooth muscle relaxant and has vasodilator properties. Topical use of papaverine is widely accepted in neurosurgery to prevent cerebral vasospasm. Growing evidence supports that papaverine may have a neural toxicity effect. We present a case of a 15 years-old patient that was operated on hemorrhagic cavernoma in the floor of the fourth ventricle. A transvermian approach was performed and neurophysiological monitoring was set up. During surgery, the motor evoked potentials ...
