Evidence-based management of common chronic lower extremity ulcers.
Dermatol Ther. 2013 May-Jun;26(3):187-96
Authors: Richmond NA, Maderal AD, Vivas AC
Abstract Chronic lower extremity ulcers are a significant burden on patients and health care systems worldwide. Although relatively common, these wounds can be difficult to treat and present a challenge to physicians. Treatment has often been based on anecdotal accounts; however, there is a growing emphasis on using evidence-based conclusions to guide clinical decisions. In this review article, the standard of care and adjuvant therapies of venous leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers are presented from an evidence-based perspective.

Updating on understanding and managing chronic wound.
Dermatol Ther. 2013 May-Jun;26(3):236-56
Authors: Park NJ, Allen L, Driver VR
Abstract The art of healing wounds is quite complex. It requires the patient's local condition in conjunction with their systemic condition to provide the most ideal wound environment. As wound care is expanding with advances in technology, we are facing a variety of different wound care products based on an assortment of bioengineered skin substances, growth factors, oxygen therapies, low frequency ultrasound and even low energy light. While these emerging evidence-based treatments prove to be promising in improving clinical outcomes and quality of life, it challenges providers to provide cost-effective treatment plans. The goal of this paper is to introduce a discussion regarding practical clinical application of various forms of advanced wound technologies in order to optimize the art of wound healing.

Occupational cyanide poisoning.
BMJ Case Rep. 2011;2011
Authors: Amizet L, Pruvot G, Remy S, Kfoury M
Abstract Cyanide poisoning has existed for centuries. In most cases, cyanide is combined with other toxic substances; for example with carbon monoxide in fire smoke. Cases of pure cyanide poisoning are rare, and usually due to accidental exposure. Their treatment is based on oxygenation and the infusion of hydroxocobalamin. The seriousness of this type of poisoning calls for a rapid and specific response, which demonstrates the usefulness of non-hospital based medical treatment. The authors report here the case of a man who was the victim of occupational poisoning with sodium cyanide and who was treated at the workplace by fire-fighters and the Service Mobile d'Urgence et Reanimation emergency ambulance service.
