Heat and moisture transfer from skin to environment through fabrics: A mathematical model

AbstractA mathematical model is set up to simulate the heat and moisture transfer from skin to environment through fabrics by including the radiation heat transfer between surfaces and the surface diffusion along fibers. The result shows that the contributions of radiation and conduction through air are approximately 20% each of the total heat flux. The surface diffusion does not play a significant role in the total moisture transport if the surface diffusion is restricted to the chemisorption of water molecules onto fiber surfaces. It is concluded that the microclimate plays the most significant role in the heat and moisture transfer from skin to environment.

Original articleShort-term effects of erythropoietin on neurodevelopment in infants with cerebral palsy: A pilot study

AbstractObjective: Cerebral palsy (CP) is a disabling condition characterized by the motor impairment, which is difficult to be ameliorated. In the brain of infants with CP, there are persistent pathomechanisms including accentuated neuroinflammation. Since erythropoietin was demonstrated to have neuroprotective effect via anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic properties, we hypothesized that the administration of recombinant human EPO (rhEPO) could help children with CP, especially young infants. Materials and method: We investigated the therapeutic efficacy of rhEPO for infants with CP, who had been undergoing active rehabilitation in hospitalized setting to eliminate treatment bias. Twenty infants with CP were randomly divided into EPO or control group equally. We compared the changes in the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM) and the Bayley Scales of Infant Development-II (BSID-II) scores during one month of hospitalization between two groups. Results: The improvements after 1 month on the GMFM A and GMFM total scores differed significantly between the groups (p = 0.003, p = 0.04, respectively). However, the changes after 6 months were not different between the two groups. The scores of BSID-II did not show any differences at 1-month and 6-months post-treatment. Conclusion: These results indicated that rhEPO could have therapeutic efficacy for infants with CP during the active rehabilitation and anti-inflammation was suggested to be one of its therapeutic mechanisms.

Case PresentationNeuroma of Medial Dorsal Cutaneous Nerve of Superficial Peroneal Nerve After Ankle Arthroscopy

Superficial peroneal neuropathy is a known complication of foot and ankle arthroscopy. A 27-year-old man developed pain and paresthesia on the medial side of the dorsum of his left foot after ankle arthroscopy. An electrodiagnostic study revealed conduction abnormality in the medial branch of superficial peroneal nerve, in which neuroma-in-continuity was subsequently detected by ultrasonography. After neuroma excision and nerve graft, the subject's neuropathic pain was substantially improved.
