portada - Burns - Vol. 40 (2014)Skin grafting is the current standard care in the treatment of full thickness burns. It was first described around 1500 BC but the vast majority of advancements have been achieved over the past 200 years.
An extensive literature review was conducted on Pubmed, Medline and Google Scholar researching the evolution of skin grafting techniques. The authors concentrated on the major landmarks of skin grafting and also provide an overview of ongoing research efforts in this field.

portada - Burns - Vol. 40 (2014)The Medical Research Council Burns and Industrial Injuries Unit at the Birmingham Accident Hospital pioneered civilian burn care and research in the United Kingdom during the post-war years. A photographic archive has been discovered that documents this period from 1945 to 1975. The aim of this project was to sort, digitize and archive the images in a secure format for future reference.

portada - JPRAS - Vol. 70; No. 7 (2017)To determine the frequency of recognised morphologic facial phenotypes among the UK and US election candidates and to assess whether there is a relationship between facial morphology and success in general elections.
Facial morphology analysis of prime ministerial and presidential candidates in the UK and US elections was performed. Direct facial measurements were made from frontal images and facial morphological indices calculated for all candidates. Anthropometric facial phenotype was determined and comparisons made between the elected leaders and unelected runner-up candidates. Paired candidates who had different facial types were analysed as a subgroup, with the probabilities of electoral success calculated.

portada - Clinics in Plastic Surgery - Vol. 44; No. 2 (2017)The Department of Orthopedics and Replantation Research Laboratory of the Sixth People’s Hospital of Shanghai was at the forefront of technical innovation and development of limb and digital replantation and early microsurgery in the mid-1960s, half a century ago. This was a period when the entirety of China was isolated from the rest of the world, with revolutionary movements spreading over the entire country. Almost unbelievably, the early development of microsurgery took place during this period, unknown to the rest of the world. As a member of the earliest research team in the replantation laboratory and a member of the surgical team in the department, the author recollects some little-known facts dating back half a century that led to now-familiar techniques in microsurgery.
