Blom1,2 1Department of Otolaryngology, HagaZiekenhuis, 2Department of Otolaryngology, Leiden University Medical Center, 3Department of Anesthesiology, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Cooper University Hospital CO2-lasertonsillotomy under local anesthesia is an interesting alternative treatment method for tonsillectomy under general anesthesia for tonsil-related complaints in adults. This report presents a step-by-step protocol detailing the execution of CO2-lasertonsillotomy under local anesthesia.
Designing Silk-silk Protein Alloy Materials for Biomedical Applications Xiao Hu1,2,3, Solomon Duki1, Joseph Forys1, Jeffrey Hettinger1,2, Justin Buchicchio1, Tabbetha Dobbins1,2, Catherine Yang2,4 1Department of Physics and Astronomy, Rowan University, 2Department of Biomedical and Translational Sciences, Rowan University, 3Department of Biomedical Sciences, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, 4Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Rowan University Blending is an efficient approach to generate biomaterials with a broad range of properties and combined features. By predicting the molecular interactions between different natural silk proteins, new silk-silk protein alloy platforms with tunable mechanical resiliency, electrical response, optical transparency, chemical processability, biodegradability, or thermal stability can be designed.
