The Role of Pedobarography and Therapeutic Padding in the Management of Hyperkeratosis due to Mechanical Stress

ABSTRACT Hyperkeratotic lesions result from continuous mechanical action on the skin forming a callus or a corn. The accumulation of horny layers will increase pressure, creating a vicious cycle. We present a new approach based on relieving pressure or friction, strictly based on the results of pedography (pedobarography).

Uncommon Differential Diagnosis of Acute Right-sided Abdominal Pain – Case Report

ABSTRACT The appendix is a worm-like, blind-ending tube, with its base on the caecum and its tip in multiple locations.
