Microscopic scaffolding offers a 'simple' solution to treating skin injuries
A revolutionary dissolvable scaffold for growing new areas of skin could provide a safer, more effective way of treating burns, diabetic ulcers and similar injurie
s. This ultra-fine, 3-dimensional scaffold, which is made from specially developed polymers, looks similar to tissue paper but has fibres 100 times finer. Before it is placed over a wound, the patient's skin cells (obtained via...
Whiplash injuries ?are they caused by startle reflexes?
New research published in The Journal of Physiology suggests that a cause of whiplash injurie
s could be startle reflexes elicited by unexpected loud sounds. Whiplash injurie
s most commonly result from seemingly minor low-speed rear-end collisions. The reason for the injury is not known but it is generally thought that the sudden acceleration of the body relative to the head damages the jo...
The effects of smoking on fractures and ligament injuries
Cigarette smoking, which causes over 8.6 million illnesses annually in the U.S., has been shown to have harmful effects on a variety of orthopedic conditions. Studies have shown that the numerous toxins contained in cigarette smoke can undermine fracture and ligament repair following injury. In addition, smokers have higher rates of hip fracture, fracture healing problems and bone infections and...
Elderly spinal cord injuries increase five-fold in 30 years, Jefferson neurosurgeons find
The number of spinal cord injurie
s among senior citizens (age 70 and above) has increased five times in the past 30 years, as compared with younger spinal cord injury patients, researchers at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Jefferson's Regional Spinal Cord Injury Center of the Delaware Valley recently reported. As the population within the United States ages, it is estimated that...
Red flag for repetitive stress injuries identified for first time in humans
For the first time in humans, scientists have found early indicators of inflammation ?potential warning signs ?in work-related injurie

Effective Diagnosis Of Spinal Cord Injuries
Patients with spinal cord injurie
s could benefit from early magnetic resonance imaging, according to the findings of a new study. According to neuroscientists in Canada MRI technology could determine //if performing surgery would benefit patients. They say they found that trauma-induced spinal cord compression on MRIs predict a poorer neurological recovery. Surgery can relieve spinal cor...
Mountain Biking Results In Serious Injuries
When viewed from the point of view of sport, mountain biking has always been considered safe in the past. But today it has become an Olympic sport, and major injurie
s have become quite commonplace. //As many as three mountain biking injury cases have been reported by the SAGE Publications, which have resulted in cervical spine injurie
s, causing tetraplegia which is also known as quadriple...

Airbags lessens oppressive eye injuries
Deployment of an airbag after an automobile accident causes more minor eye injurie
s, but reduces major eye problems. It's now well validated that airbags will reduce the number of severe and fatal injurie
s. //However, the effect of airbags on the eye has not been well explored until now. Researchers in Virginia, USA, analysed data from over 20,020 automobile accidents from 1994 to 199...
Backpacks cause more than just back injuries
Heavy backpacks have often been associated with related injurie
s to the back, in children. However, researchers in a new study have found that heavy backpacks cause more injurie
s to the heads and faces of children than they do to the back. The study was published in the January issue of Pediatrics. The study covered all children age 6 to 18 whose backpack-related// injurie
