Is Fixing Pediatric Nail Bed Injuries With Medical Adhesives as Effective as Suturing?: A Review of the Literature.

Nail bed injuries are common in children, with nail bed damage accounting for 15% to 24% of fingertip injuries. Our objective was to see whether medical adhesives, the cyanoacrylates including Histoacryl and Dermabond, could be used to fix nail bed lacerations as opposed to doing a primary repair with sutures, thus potentially being a quicker method for repair in the emergency department for these injuries.

To focus on two novel aspects of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) genetics of special interest: the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process, an initial step in tumor progression that finally leads to metastasis formation, by explaining how genes as well as epigenetic factors control this process, and the new diagnostic options based on the analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and cell-free DNA (cfDNA) that could revolutionize diagnosis in the coming years.

Maxillofacial trauma: managing potentially dangerous and disfiguring complex injuries digest.

Patients with maxillofacial trauma require a careful evaluation due to the anatomical proximity of the maxillofacial region to the head and neck. Facial injuries can range from soft-tissue lacerations and nondisplaced nasal fractures to severe, complex fractures, eye injuries, and possible brain injury. Though the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) guidelines provide a framework for the management of trauma patients, they do not provide a detailed reference for many subtle or complex facial injuries. This ...

Improving quality outcomes in head and neck free flap surgery with the use of a physician inpatient coordinator.

Head and neck free flap patients require complex postoperative care. The quality of care for these patients often depends on their management from the time they leave the operating room. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of a postoperative inpatient coordinator (IC) for head and free flap patients on quality outcomes: length of stay (LOS), 30-day unplanned return to the emergency department (30dRED), 30-day unplanned readmissions (30dUR), and complication rates.

Age-Related Disparities in Trauma Center Access for Severe Head Injuries Following the Release of the Updated Field Triage Guidelines.

In 2006, the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma and the Center for Disease Control released field triage guidelines with special consideration for older adults. Additional considerations for direct transport to a Level I or II trauma center (TC) were added in 2011, reflecting perceived undertriage to TCs for older adults. We examined whether age-based disparities in TC care for severe head injury decreased following introduction of the 2011 revisions.

Laryngeal Injury in a Male Lacrosse Player: A Case for Prevention.

Lacrosse has become increasingly popular among US children and teens. Because a lacrosse ball can serve as a projectile, neck injuries, although uncommon, can cause a severe and long-lasting injury. We report the case of a 16-year-old adolescent who experienced direct neck trauma while playing lacrosse. The clinical presentation, treatment strategies, and intubation considerations are reviewed. Finally, a call to action to prevent future, similar injuries is discussed.

Health Literacy.

Health literacy has been shown to affect outcomes in a number of medical conditions. Despite the complexity of care that is often required among otolaryngology patients, the literature on health literacy in this field is sparse. Otolaryngologists need to be aware of issues related to health literacy due to the changing health care environment. The increased complexity of medical care, the greater involvement of patients in shared decision making, and the higher administrative burden on patients have increas...

AHNS series: Do you know your guidelines? Management of head and neck cancer in the era of human papillomavirus: Educating our patients on human papillomavirus.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) has changed the face of head and neck cancer over the past 2 decades. No longer is this solely a disease of older patients with a history of heavy tobacco and alcohol use. Patients with HPV-related head and neck cancers tend to be younger, healthier, and have an improved prognosis, compared with those with HPV-negative tumors. As more patients are diagnosed with HPV-related head and neck cancer, physicians have important topics to consider. These include prevalence, transmission, ...

Medical Students and Staff Physicians: The Question of Social Media.

Social media's prevalence among the professional world is rapidly increasing. Its use among medical personnel-specifically, medical students, resident physicians, and staff physicians-could compromise personal-professional boundaries.
