Perioperative outcomes of cytoreductive nephrectomy in the UK in 2012.
To define the perioperative morbidity and 30-day mortality of cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN) using the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) nephrectomy dataset for 2012, the first year of public reporting of ...
Digital mucous cyst excision using a proximally based skin flap.
Mucous cysts of the fingers are benign ganglionic lesions arising generally from the distal interphalangeal joint that are more frequent between the fifth and seventh decades. They are usually asymptomatic; however, in ...
Multicentre analysis of incidental findings on low-resolution CT attenuation correction images: an extended study
OBJECTIVE: To review new incidental findings detected on low-resolution CT attenuation correction (CTAC) images acquired during single-photon emission CT-CT myocardial perfusion imaging as an extension to our initial study. ...
Codeine: An Under-Recognized and Easily Treated Cause of Acute Abdominal Pain.
We present 2 cases of acute abdominal pain secondary to oral codeine that resolved after the administration of intravenous naloxone.
Day-case closure of ileostomy: feasible, safe and efficient.
AIM: Over 5000 loop ileostomy closures were performed in the UK in 2013 with a median inpatient stay of 5 days. Previously we have successfully implemented a 23-h protocol for loop ileostomy closure which was modified for ...
Distraction osteogenesis versus orthognathic surgery for the treatment of maxillary hypoplasia in cleft lip and palate patients: a systematic review.
OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of distraction osteogenesis to orthognathic surgery for the treatment of maxillary hypoplasia in individuals with cleft lip and palate. METHOD: A systematic review of prospective ...
Skeletal muscle hypertrophy adaptations predominate in the early stages of resistance exercise training, matching deuterium oxide-derived measures of muscle protein synthesis and mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 signaling.
Resistance exercise training (RET) is widely used to increase muscle mass in athletes and also aged/cachectic populations. However, the time course and metabolic and molecular control of hypertrophy remain poorly defined. ...
Failure of meniscal repair association with late anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
INTRODUCTION: Meniscus injury is associated with ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury. It would be ideal to repair all meniscus tears but failure rate is high. AIM: Our objective was to assess the success of meniscus ...
Osteotomising the fibular free flap: an anatomical perspective.
Multiple osteotomies with the help of 3-dimensional planning have improved the accuracy of reconstructions, and the reliability and versatility of the fibular free flap is well recognised. To investigate the periosteal ...
