Cutaneous Embolization of Doxorubicin Drug-Eluting Beads

from ArchDerm - 01 Oct 14

Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) with drug-eluting microspheres (DEMs) is emerging as the therapy of choice by many interventional oncologists and radiologists for unresectable liver tumors. Improvements in drug delivery systems have been made by modification of the embolic agents and the introduction of microcatheters, allowing for precise drug delivery to tumors. Currently, DEMs are being used as the drug delivery system for TACE. We report herein a case of cutaneous embolization of doxo

Famous Lines in History Langer Lines

from ArchDerm - 01 Oct 14

When most surgeons visualize lines on the skin surface to guide such incisions, it is Langer lines (also known as skin cleavage or tension lines) that most readily come to mind. Karl Langer (1819-1887), the man behind the famous lines, was born in Vienna, Austria, where he spent most of his life and later became professor of anatomy at Joseph’s Academy. In 1861
