Folliculitis Overview Folliculitis is the infection and inflammation of one or more hair follicles. The condition may occur anywhere on the skin with the exception of the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. The obvious reasons include absence of hair follicles in these regions. Clinically, a suppurative lesion of a hair follicle can be observed. A group of adjacent furuncles with subcutaneous involvement and multiple discharging sinuses is seen in a carbuncle.
This will cause pinching between the shoulder blade and the arm bone when you try to move your shoulders. Shoulder impingements can arise as a result of the repetitive use of the shoulders or when you fall. Like the name suggests, a rotator cuff tear arises when a tendon or a rotator cuff muscle actually tears. These tears can either be a minor one or very sever, depending on the affected tissue and the thickness and depth of the tear. Just like shoulder impingements, tears are caused by the wearing down of the muscles of rotator cuffs overtime, or by acute traumas.
Hard tissue injuries are injuries that involve the bone such as fractures. Hard tissue injuries are more severe. Surgery is sometimes needed depending on the severity of the injury. A torn anterior cruciate ligament is an example of a soft tissue injury that might require
In order to have cut through the windpipe, it would have been difficult enough. The larynx consists of several pieces of thick cartilage, and would have added to the difficulty of the assailant to have cut through. According to the autopsy, the victim 's head was pulled back before the fatal wound was delivered. The muscles of the neck would have been taut and flexed, making the muscles harder and adding further difficulty to the wound. Because of the assailant 's ability to have cut both the windpipe, larynx, and muscles in one clean action and to have also cut the vertebra, it strongly suggests that the assailant is one of beastly strength and enough knowledge of how to deliver an agonizing death to the victim.
It involves the superficial and deep fascial planes of the genitalia. When the organisms multiply, the infection spreads along the fascial planes, often sparing the deep muscular structures. This has implications at the time of initial debridement and later
It allows the cells to pass through. Then, it also where the process of exchanged between blood and lymphatic vessels occur. Due this process, it allows the lymphatic system to monitor the invading microbes. The lymphatic vessels also carry a clear fluid that it bathes in the body’s tissues that is known as lymph. Another organ is lymph node that is has specialized compartments where the immune system there and can encounter antigens.
Varicose vein is a disease that happens mainly on the legs when the valves in the veins are ruined and so the blood flows backward and the veins become twisted. As the veins become twisted, the veins may be swollen and aching and become painful. Artery sends the blood out to the body and the veins sends the blood back to the heart. The veins in the bottom leg part needs to send
The dura mater is usually incised longitudinally over the tumor. The dural edges are retracted laterally with several 4/0 silk sutures. Lateral lesions may require section of the dentate ligaments to provide exposure. Sutures from dentate ligament to opposite dura keeps the surgical space open and offers good control of anterior dura as result of gentle rotation of the spinal cord. Great care must be taken to avoid traction & compression on spinal cord itself.
A wound is a disorder in the normal anatomical structure and function of living tissue which may be caused by physical, chemical, microbiological or immunological injury. Globally wounds also represent a significant burden on the patients and health care professionals or givers. Wound infection is also significant in that they are the most common nosocomial infection (Orrett, 2002) . Infection of the wound is the successful invasion, and proliferation by one or more organisms anywhere within the body’s sterile tissues and sometimes accompanied with pus formation (Calvin, 1998).Wound infection may result to prolong hospital stay, delay wound healing, increases cost of health care and morbidity in surgical patients (Orrett, 2002).. Wound infection with multiple organisms may even result to multiple organ failure or death of the patient when it becomes chronic.
Traumatic Finger Amputation A traumatic finger amputation is when you lose part or all of a finger from an accident or injury. The severity of this type of injury can vary widely. It can mean just the tip of your finger gets ripped off (avulsion), or it can mean you completely lose a finger (amputation). Traumatic finger amputation is a medical emergency. It requires immediate care to prevent further damage and to save the finger.
