Prominent publications by JOHN LOUIS Ratz

KOL-Index: 7540 . BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa is a disabling disease. Although medical management can at times control the disease, the treatment of choice is surgical excision. Surgical defects have been managed by second-intention healing, simple surgical closure, or complex surgical repairs. OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to determine the benefit of carbon dioxide laser excision with healing by ...

Basosquamous Carcinoma


[ PUBLICATION ]
KOL-Index: 6460 . BACKGROUND: Basosquamous carcinoma (BSC) is a rare cutaneous tumor that has been poorly described in the dermatologic literature. It has been depicted as an aggressive tumor with a high incidence of distant metastasis. OBJECTIVE: To examine the average extent of local tissue invasion and presence of distant metastases in cases of BSC compared with those of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and ...

KOL-Index: 5190 . BACKGROUND: Pearly penile papules are angiofibromas found on the corona and sulcus of the glans penis. While these represent a benign condition, psychological and cosmetic concerns often prompt patients to seek therapeutic removal of these lesions. Multiple therapeutic modalities have been reported; however, use of CO2 laser has proven to be the most effective to date. OBJECTIVE: To ...

KOL-Index: 4941 . Diazolidinyl urea (Germall II) is a preservative recently used in cosmetics. It is effective against most contaminating microorganisms, especially Pseudomonas. We report the first case of an acute allergic contact dermatitis from diazolidinyl urea that was contained in a hair gel.

KOL-Index: 4493 . A double-blind, double-paired comparison study was performed to evaluate the effects of increasing concentrations of polidocanol in the sclerotherapy of essential telangiectasias of the legs. Polidocanol 0.25%, 0.50%, 0.75%, and 1.0% were compared with regard to clinical effectiveness, safety, and patient acceptance. All dosages were well tolerated by the patients. There were no allergic ...

KOL-Index: 4434 . Analysis of 1,620 basal cell carcinomas treated at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation from 1981 to 1983 confirms that the majority of basal cell carcinomas occur on the face and that the relative risk for recurrent tumor is high in certain locations, especially the nose. Alternately, tumors found on the neck/scalp, trunk, and arms have a low relative risk of recurrence when compared to all ...

KOL-Index: 4154 . The chronic stage of acne keloidalis nuchae is characterized by symptomatic keloidal papules and plaques on the occipital scalp and posterior neck. We describe our results with the use of the carbon dioxide laser in eight patients with treatment-refractory acne keloidalis nuchae.

KOL-Index: 4106 . Cutaneous benign neurofibromas are the most common skin manifestation of Von Recklinghausen neurofibromatosis (NF). An autosomal dominant disorder, NF has extraordinary clinical variability and multisystem involvement; many patients develop hundreds of cutaneous neurofibromas in a lifetime. This problem can easily and rapidly be treated using the CO2 laser with results equal to or better ...

KOL-Index: 4105 . A double-blind, double-paired comparison, placebo-controlled study was undertaken to determine the optimal agent for sclerotherapy of spider telangiectasias of the lower extremities. Sodium tetradecyl sulfate 0.5%, polidocanol 0.25%, heparsal, and normal saline control were evaluated in terms of clinical effectiveness and patient acceptance. Although all of the agents, except for the ...

KOL-Index: 4014 . Many of the standard forms of therapy for large or multiple superficial basal cell carcinomas are limited by significant postoperative pain, excessive scarring, and prolonged wound healing time. Combining traditional curettage with carbon dioxide laser vaporization creates a procedure that allows excellent visualization, due to the bloodless surgical field produced by the laser, minimal ...

KOL-Index: 3856 . The technique for using the carbon dioxide laser in the vaporization mode to treat multiple lesions of syringoma of the face without adverse scarring, textural changes, or recurrence is described.

KOL-Index: 3781 . Digital myxoid cysts represent a relatively uncommon cutaneous disorder which have often proven refractory to conservative management. We report a series of ten patients with this condition who were effectively treated with carbon dioxide (CO2) laser vaporization. There has been no recurrence of cysts during a follow-up period ranging from 14 to 44 months.

KOL-Index: 3720 . Microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) is a relatively uncommon adnexal neoplasm that can display aggressive local invasion. MAC occurs most commonly on the central part of the face and can be clinically asymptomatic with a benign appearance. We describe the first reported case of MAC in an African American man who was treated by Mohs micrographic surgery.

KOL-Index: 3374 . Ten patients with dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, all of whom had been treated previously by conventional excisional surgery without success, were treated with Mohs micrographic surgery. A team approach utilizing margin control by Mohs-trained physicians and reconstruction by surgical specialists was employed. Average follow-up exceeds 3 1/2 years, with no recurrences. Microscopically ...
