KOL-Index: 21
KOL-Index: 20 There is no doubt that specific nutritional components are important for various phases of the wound healing process. When tissues are being repaired, more amino acids, carbohydrates, lipids, minerals, water, and oxygen are consumed than during the usual breakdown and buildup of normal, mature tissue.1 Deficiencies of carbohydrate, protein, certain vitamins, or trace elements may result in ...
KOL-Index: 18 Features of basal cell carcinoma are reviewed within the broad categories of growth characteristics, histogenesis, ultrastructural features, biochemical properties, site of origin, metastatic potential, and immunobiology. Biologic features that pertain to host-tumor interactions are emphasized. Perhaps a better understanding of these host-tumor relationships will offer more effective methods ...

KOL-Index: 18 Mohs micrographic surgery is a reliable outpatient surgical method of removing skin cancer. The method includes tissue excision in thin layers, colour-coding of excised specimens, accurate orientation of excised tissue through construction of tissue maps, and microscopic examination of horizontal frozen sections. Selected basal and squamous cell carcinomas are treated most commonly by this ...

KOL-Index: 17 Of 365 consecutive squamous cell carcinomas treated by Mohs surgery, 27 (7.4%) later metastasized. Tumors of the temple, the dorsa of the hands, and the lips were more likely to metastasize than tumors located elsewhere. None of the metastatic lesions developed in antecedent inflammatory or degenerative conditions. No single factor was useful in predicting metastasis, but metastatic lesions, ...

KOL-Index: 16 Physicians performing dermatologic surgery should include a thorough drug history in their preoperative assessments of patients. Such information may allow for the discontinuation, if desired, of drugs that negatively influence the wound-healing process. In some instances, the surgeon may find it useful, during the perioperative period, to substitute a drug known to impede wound healing with ...

KOL-Index: 15 The role of estrogens in the development of skin cancer is controversial. Sex steroids have a profound effect on the epidermis and epidermal appendages. Estradiol in pharmacologic doses has been reported to stimulate basal cell carcinoma in an animal model. Sex hormones act by means of a specific protein receptor. In this study we used a specific, highly sensitive monoclonal antibody to ...

KOL-Index: 15 1774 basal cell carcinoma lesions treated by Mohs surgery between 1979 and 1986 were evaluated for previous trauma histories. These traumas include burns, sharp trauma, chicken pox scars, blunt trauma, and vaccinations. 129 (7.3%) had a previous history of trauma. Analysis revealed that patients with trauma-related tumors were slightly younger and more likely to be male. Their lesions were ...

KOL-Index: 13 The distinction between the keratoacanthoma (KA) and the squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) can sometimes be difficult on the basis of histologic and clinical criteria. The possible diagnostic significance of DNA ploidy initiated the present study evaluating the DNA ploidy in paraffin-embedded tissue sections of 7 KA and 15 SCC, and fresh frozen tissue touch preparations of 15 of the same cases ...

KOL-Index: 12 The average age of patients with basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is over 60 years, and fewer than 5% of patients with this tumor are under 30 years of age. A comparison of younger (15 to 30 years) and older (56 to 70 years) patients with BCC was conducted to identify specific tumor or host features associated with BCC occurring early in life. According to data collected over an 11-year period, 54 ...
