The authors have analysed the results of the treatment of 68 patients with pyo-osseous complications of the gunshot wounds of the shoulder which had been repeatedly operated at previous stages. The failures were connected with suppurations of the wounds, faults of the surgical technique and the postoperative management of the patient. All the patients were operated repeatedly at two stages: radical necrosequestrotomy, epidermatoplasty and tendoplasty were performed at stage I and bone autografting with immobilization with an plaster bandage were performed at stage II. The results of the treatment were good in 31 patients, satisfactory in 18 patients and not satisfactory in 6 patients. After tendoplasty the results were good in 12 patients and satisfactory in in 6 patients.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
