New surgical goggles spot cancer tissue where human eye won’t, study claims

  New surgical goggles spot cancer tissue where human eye won’t, study claims The goggles have an integrated camera that can pick up infrared signals beneath the surface of the tissue. The tiny device was inspired by the morpho butterfly's eyes, according to the study published in the journal Optica.Researchers explained that before the surgery the women were injected with a green dye containing a protein that attaches specifically to cancer cells.The dyed cells emit an infrared signal that cannot be seen by the human eye, but is detected by the camera in the goggles worn by the surgeons.

Necrosis is a form of cell injury which results in the premature death of cells in living tissue by autolysis. Necrosis is caused by factors external to the cell or tissue , such as infection, toxins, or trauma which result in the unregulated digestion of cell components.

A Russian rock musician , whose plane was forced to make an emergency landing when the smell of his rotting flesh disease made passengers vomit, has died . Medics discovered that Suchilin was suffering from severe tissue necrosis , or gangrene, and subsequently brought to hospital.

After an unbearable stench led to a passenger being removed from a flight in Portugal in May, it was reported the man died from a tissue disease June 25.

Andrey Suchilin, a 58-year-old rock musician from Russia, was initially told he had "a simple beach infection," and was provided with antibiotics. While he continued traveling, a Transavia flight was forced to make an emergency landing due to an extreme stench from Suchilin who was on board.

Heart Disease . Digestive Health. One common type of necrosis is caused by damage from frostbite . During frostbite, the tissues are severely damaged by cold, and if the condition is not treated quickly, the frostbitten areas turn black and die .

A Russian rock guitarist whose illness caused an emergency plane landing last month has died , after multiple surgeries at a hospital in Portugal. He was diagnosed with tissue necrosis after a vacation in Spain.

"We can confirm that on May 29th a stopover of flight HV5666 (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria - Amsterdam) has taken place on Faro (Portugal). This was a precautionary measure in relation to a passenger for medical reasons," confirmed a Transavia spokesperson.

Passengers, many of whom experienced vomiting and fainting, reported it to be an "unbearable" smell. "It was like he hadn't washed himself for several weeks," said one passenger named Piet van Haut.

In reality, the smell was not caused by poor hygiene but was the result of necrosis. The tissue disease can lead to the premature death of cells in living tissue due to low levels of oxygen. This is different from the natural death of tissue over time, which is known as necrobiosis.

  The Real Reason Why Your Gums Are Receding Worried about your smile? If you have receding gums, it’s often attributed to simply brushing too hard, or it could be a sign of gum disease.&nbsp;You can’t always see it, but stress has a huge impact on your oral health.

Some of the causes of necrosis include infections, improper treatment of a wound, frostbite, deep vein thrombosis, and potentially even cancer.

Treatment typically starts with identifying (and if needed, stopping it) the cause of the necrosis. After this, the dead tissue is removed in a manner most suited to the individual patient.

In severe cases, a person may have to undergo amputation of the limbs or organs affected by tissue death. Antibiotics, immunosuppressive therapy, maggot therapy are some of the non-surgical methods considered in certain cases.

In a Facebook post published May 30, Suchilin described struggles with insurance company Ingosstrakh over the expiration of his health insurance.

He and his wife were in a country without "money, consulate support and medical care," he wrote. This led to a delay in seeking treatment, which only took place after close friends raised money to help pay for the bills.

The musician saw his condition worsen at the hospital after he was admitted into the intensive care unit. Multiple surgeries were performed to stop the infection but the necrosis spread to critical parts of the body such as the kidneys, heart, and lungs. Eventually, he was in a medical coma before passing away from organ failure. 

Transavia issued a statement expressing sympathy for the family and wishing them strength. Regarding exposure, the Dutch airline emphasized "there has been no risk of infection," to passengers and staff members who were on board the flight.

Parkinson's Disease Could Be Predicted with Eye Scan .
<p>The team behind the research, published in the journal Neurology, believe thinning of the retina could be an early sign of brain cells dying away.</p>Every year, around 50,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with the neurodegenerative condition. Currently, Parkinson’s disease is generally not picked up until symptoms—like tremors, stiffness of the limbs and trunk, slow movement and a loss of balance and coordination—become obvious, according to the Department of Health.
