1822. RFID tags help alert surgeons to problems. (Abstract)

RFID tags help alert surgeons to problems. Estimates say 1,500 objects are left inside patients after surgery each year in the United States; two-thirds are sponges. A handheld wand scanning device successfully detects sponges in seconds. The author recommends conducting an initial count prior to surgical incision, a second count at the beginning of wound closure, and a third count before the skin is closed.

1823. Apocrine carcinoma, adenopathies, and raised TAG-72 serum tumor marker. (Abstract)

Apocrine carcinoma, adenopathies, and raised TAG-72 serum tumor marker. The detection of tumor-associated glycoprotein-72 in the serum of patients with carcinomas, basically of the colon, has proved to be of great use in the follow-up of these gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas.We report the case of a male patient presenting adenopathies in the right axilla. The histologic study of an adjacent skin tumor enabled the diagnosis of a cutaneous apocrine carcinoma. Among the studies made, the increase (...) in the serum antibody CA72.4 can be highlighted. The tumor marker was negative after the extirpation of the skin tumor and the axillary adenopathies.To our best knowledge, this is the first case in which a tumor serum marker is associated with a cutaneous apocrine carcinoma, a fact that should be confirmed with further patients. Its use in the monitoring of this infrequent skin neoplasia is also noteworthy.

1824. Generation and characterization of cDNA clones from Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis for an expressed sequence tag library: identification of homologues of house dust mite allergens. (Abstract)

Generation and characterization of cDNA clones from Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis for an expressed sequence tag library: identification of homologues of house dust mite allergens. Molecular studies on scabies, a disease of considerable human and veterinary significance, have been limited because of the difficulty of obtaining the causative organism Sarcoptes scabiei, the "itch mite." We have used skin from the bedding of crusted scabies patients as a source of mites for the construction

1827. Anal skin tags in inflammatory bowel disease: New observations and a clinical review. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Anal skin tags in inflammatory bowel disease: New observations and a clinical review. The association between intestinal Crohn's disease (CD) and specific perianal abnormalities called anal skin tags (AST) has been recognized but not well defined. Skin tags have been classified into 2 types: 1) raised, broad, or narrow, single or multiple, soft or firm, and painless, often referred to as "elephant ears"; or 2) edematous, hard, often cyanotic, tender or not, and typically arising from a healed (...) anal fissure, ulcer, or hemorrhoid. The aims of this study were to i) better characterize those skin tags identified by the term "elephant ears" and differentiate them from other types of AST; ii) compare their prevalence in patients with CD and ulcerative colitis (UC); iii) observe the relationship of the skin tags to the location of the primary bowel disease; and iv) to discuss the value of these typical AST in making an early diagnosis of CD.Photographs of all AST were taken when present

1828. A Modified Ferguson Hemorrhoidectomy for Circumferential Prolapsed Hemorrhoids with Skin Tags. (Abstract)

A Modified Ferguson Hemorrhoidectomy for Circumferential Prolapsed Hemorrhoids with Skin Tags. We describe a modification of the Ferguson hemorrhoidectomy for circumferential prolapsed hemorrhoids. This details the operative procedure and compares the results of other radical methods in patients with circumferential hemorrhoidal disease.A total of 738 patients (mean age, 43 (range, 19-83) years) were treated with our modified Ferguson method under sedative analgesia between 1989 and 2004: 576 (...) mild gas incontinence, five developed anal stenosis, and three had an anal fissure. Only three patients had recurrent skin tags, which did not affect their quality of life.Our modified Ferguson method represents a good choice for radical treatment of circumferential prolapsed hemorrhoids because it is easy to perform, has few complications, and provides satisfying results.

1829. Skin tag as a cutaneous marker for impaired carbohydrate metabolism: a case-control study. (Abstract)

Skin tag as a cutaneous marker for impaired carbohydrate metabolism: a case-control study. Skin tags are common benign skin tumors usually occurring on the neck and major flexors of older people. A possible association with impaired carbohydrate metabolism has been suggested in previous studies, but the results are not conclusive.To investigate and compare the prevalence of diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) in patients with skin tag and a control group.A case-control study (...) was conducted in individuals over 15 years old, comparing cases (n = 104) with at least three skin tags and age-, sex-, and body mass index (BMI)-matched controls (n = 94) without skin tag. Cases and controls were recruited from patients consecutively seen at an academic outpatient dermatology clinic. All patients underwent a standard 2-h oral glucose tolerance test with 75 g glucose.Patients with skin tag had higher frequency of diabetes than the control group (23.07% vs. 8.51%, chi(2)-test, P = 0.005

1830. Preauricular skin tags and ear pits are associated with permanent hearing impairment in newborns. (Abstract)

Preauricular skin tags and ear pits are associated with permanent hearing impairment in newborns. Our goals were to (1) study the prevalence of hearing impairment in a large cohort of infants with preauricular skin tags or ear pits and compare it with that among all other newborns participating in our universal newborn hearing screening program during the same period and (2) evaluate the effectiveness of transient evoked otoacoustic emissions as a hearing-screening tool (...) in this population.During the study period of 7.5 years, 68484 infants were screened for hearing impairment, of whom 637 (0.93%) had preauricular skin tags and/or ear pits. The population was divided into 3 groups: (1) a low-risk group for hearing impairment; (2) a high-risk group for hearing impairment; and (3) a very high-risk group for hearing impairment. The screening results and audiological follow-up for these infants were examined retrospectively.A significantly higher prevalence of permanent hearing impairment

1831. Surgical pearl: tissue forceps as a simple and effective instrument for treating skin tags. (Abstract)

Surgical pearl: tissue forceps as a simple and effective instrument for treating skin tags. Skin tags are one of the most common, benign, disfiguring tumors on the flexural aspects of the body of advanced aged and obese people, with higher incidences in females. Various treatment modalities have been advocated for the tags. Even a simple, noninvasive and fast cryotechnique requires approximately 1-3 min for a single skin tag. To hasten the treatment of the tags, tissue forceps have been used (...) as an effective, fast, simple instrument. By utilizing the tissue forceps, 37 skin tags at different parts of body have been treated successfully without cosmetic defects or recurrences at the sites.

1832. Mucosal flap excision for treatment of remnant prolapsed hemorrhoids or skin tags after stapled hemorrhoidopexy. (Abstract)

Mucosal flap excision for treatment of remnant prolapsed hemorrhoids or skin tags after stapled hemorrhoidopexy. Stapled hemorrhoidopexy may leave residual skin tags or external components following its use in large prolapsed piles. Excision of redundant mucosa above the dentate line and reconstitution to the staple line reduces these prolapsed elements. We describe a novel technique that removes residual skin tags and piles while remaining true to the spirit of stapled hemorrhoidopexy.

Skin tags and the atherogenic lipid profile This report details four patients who had skin tags, mainly on their torso, neck, and axillae, and who also displayed an abnormal lipid profile. All showed an increased serum triglyceride (fasting > 1.70 mmol/litre) and a decreased high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (< 1.1 mmol/litre in women and 1.0 mmol/litre for men) concentration. The displayed lipid profile is also known as the atherogenic profile and is associated with insulin resistance (...) , type 2 diabetes mellitus, and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Two of the patients had impaired glucose tolerance and one had type 2 diabetes mellitus. Three of the individuals had coronary artery disease. Skin tags might be a useful clinical sign that could alert clinicians to screen such individuals for abnormal lipids, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease.
