Surgical wounds resulting from the excision of cutaneous malignancies or benign neoplasms can be repaired in a number of ways. One alternative, which has been used extensively in our practice, is the purse-string suture. This method offers many advantages respect to the traditional closure. In this cases report we describe four illustrative cases.
The prevalence of HIV-related neuropathy may rise nationwide as Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) usage and HIV-survival rates increase, resulting in higher referral rates to pain practitioners for analgesic strategies. However, if patients' symptoms are refractory to conservative measures, an advanced interventional approach may be indicated.
Iyengar Yoga Therapy Intervention for Ischial Pressure Ulcers in a Patient with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A Case Study
A patient diagnosed with ALS reported the development of ischial pressure ulcers after consistent immobility for 1 year (32 months after her ALS diagnosis). A new method of postural alignment was developed to alleviate the pain associated with the pressure ulcer.
The Alcatraz prison, with its picturesque surroundings and fascinating life stories of its inmates, has been the subject of a number of films and publications.

The Management of Cephalic Arch Stenosis in Arteriovenous Fistulas for Hemodialysis: A Systematic Review
No singular, definitive management strategy exists for cephalic arch stenosis CAS. Current studies are limited by being primarily single-center retrospective trials featuring heterogenous patient populations, interventions, and endpoints. Priorities for future studies should include larger randomized trials.
So-called heterotaxy affects lateralization of the thoracic and abdominal organs. Congenital malformations may be present in one of several organ systems. Cardiac involvement includes both structural and conduction abnormalities. Data regarding arrhythmias in heterotaxy come from case reports and small case series.
Metastasis to the pancreas from osteosarcoma is highly unusual, but can be seen with the increasing survival of patients with osteosarcoma. We present an extremely rare case of a predominantly cystic lesion of the pancreas, which was diagnosed as metastasis from osteosarcoma. The pathophysiology of the cystic component of the metastasis of osteosarcoma is unknown.
