The management of deep partial-thickness and full-thickness skin defects remains a significant challenge. Particularly with massive defects, the current standard treatment, split-thickness skin grafti...
Management of third-degree facial burns remains one of the most difficult challenges in burn care. Patients with deep facial burns usually require gradual escharectomy, tangential excision of the woun...
Excess remnant skin is retained for use in additional grafting in case of split-thickness skin graft (STSG) failure. We hypothesise that regrafting with remnant skin offers greater efficacy and advant...
Minced skin grafting (MG) is a procedure that involves mincing of the harvested skin and grafting it back onto the wounds. We aimed to investigate whether MG reduces the healing time and improves the ...
This is a double-blind randomized controlled clinical trial, that compares the percentage of epithelialization of skin defects using the conventional meshed split thickness skin grafts vs ...
The purpose of this single center, prospective case series is to evaluate the effective management of split-thickness skin graft donor site wounds using Opticell Ag (Chitosan-based dressin...
The use of topical beta-blockers, such as 0.1% timolol, in promoting wound healing is currently emerging in the academic literature. The investigators will enroll 72 patients who have thei...
Objectives and rationale: Optimal burn management involves removing all the dead or burned tissue as early as feasible and cover with an autograft called split thickness skin graft (STSG) ...
This is a randomized, within-patient controlled study to compare the clinical performance of the ReCell Device with that of Split-thickness Meshed Skin Grafts for the treatment of second d...
The measurement of subcutaneous fat located directly beneath the skin by grasping a fold of skin and subcutaneous fat between the thumb and forefinger and pulling it away from the underlying muscle tissue. The thickness of the double layer of skin and subcutaneous tissue is then read with a caliper. The five most frequently measured sites are the upper arm, below the scapula, above the hip bone, the abdomen, and the thigh. Its application is the determination of relative fatness, of changes in physical conditioning programs, and of the percentage of body fat in desirable body weight.

A prenatal ultrasonic measurement of the thickness or translucent area below the SKIN in the back of the fetal NECK, or nape of the neck, during the first 11-14 weeks of gestation (PREGNANCY TRIMESTER, FIRST). Abnormal thickness or nuchal translucent measurements resulting from fluid collection, is associated with increased risks of CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES. (Nicolaides et al., 1992)
A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
The science and application of a double-beam transmission interference microscope in which the illuminating light beam is split into two paths. One beam passes through the specimen while the other beam reflects off a reference mirror before joining and interfering with the other. The observed optical path difference between the two beams can be measured and used to discriminate minute differences in thickness and refraction of non-stained transparent specimens, such as living cells in culture.
Fish of the genera ONCORHYNCHUS and Salmo in the family SALMONIDAE. They are anadromous game fish, frequenting the coastal waters of both the North Atlantic and Pacific. They are known for their gameness as a sport fish and for the quality of their flesh as a table fish. (Webster, 3d ed).
