    This article presents information on pyogenic granuloma which is a benign vascular papule, thought probably to be in response to an injury. There is a short history of the development of a red or purple nodule that readily bleeds. They may occur at any site but are most common on the fingers....

    Time-resolved predetonation absorption spectra of silver azide were measured using the "spectrum per pulse" technique. An analogy is observed between the behavior of the absorption spectra at the initial stages of explosive decomposition and radiolysis. From the character of the spectra it is...

    A working party of stoma nurses was set up from the Wessex Stoma Care Nurses Forum, to explore the management of stomal granulomas at the mucocutaneous junction. It was found that there was a diversity of management regimes practised when treating granulomas, with no clear guidelines. The aim of...
