Dr. C. Helen Malone Publishes Article in JAAD

The UTMB DIG congratulates UTMB PGY4 dermatology resident, Dr. Helen Malone for her original publication, “Recreation of the alar crease with the inverted horizontal mattress suture technique.” Her online article is available at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0190962215017429 . Her co-author was Dr. R. Wagner (UTMB Dermatology Program Director). During her three month Mohs rotation that was completed in June 2015, Dr. Malone submitted two additional surgical articles that have already been accepted for publication in the JAAD, and abstracts for two posters at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology. In addition, she wrote two interesting case reports that related to unusual aspects of skin cancer she saw while on the Mohs service, one of which has already been submitted for publication. Two MS4 UTMB medical students were mentored by Dr. Malone during the Mohs rotation, one of whom is the first author of a case report, and the other is the first author of an academic review about skin flaps (both manuscripts are currently in preparation). One of these medical students is also assisting Dr. Malone with her dermatology residency program required scholarly projected that relates to improving dermatology resident education in Mohs wound repair with skin flaps.
