A cornerstone of the management of Acquired Haemophilia A (AHA) involves inhibitor eradication. First line immunosuppressive agents are usually steroids, either alone or in combination with cyclophosphamide. We present the use of Rituximab, cyclophosphamide, vincristine and prednisolone (RCVP) combination as immunosuppressant in AHA in a small cohort of patients in order to control their symptoms and eradicate inhibitors. This was a retrospective analysis of all AHA patients treated at the Northern Ireland Haemophilia centre over a six year period...

BACKGROUND: The Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) monitors the administration of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in Northern Ireland (NI). As part of their inspection methodology RQIA wished to include feedback from ECT patients. The aim of this report is to summarise the opinions of ECT patients over a 1-year period and to compare their feedback about treatment with the standards of best practice, as defined by the Electroconvulsive Therapy Accreditation Service (ECTAS)...

BACKGROUND: In patients with locally advanced or low rectal cancers, long-course chemoradiotherapy (LCCRT) is recommended prior to surgical management.(1) The need for restaging afterwards has been questioned as it may be difficult to interpret imaging due to local tissue effects of chemoradiotherapy. The purpose of this study was to determine if restaging affected the management of patients receiving long-course chemoradiotherapy for rectal cancer. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients with rectal cancer discussed at the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust Lower Gastrointestinal Multi-Disciplinary Team Meeting (LGIMDT) in 2013 who had received long-course chemoradiotherapy was performed...

The aim was to assess the efficacy of Syntometrine (®) (500 micrograms ergometrine with 5 units oxytocin) as an appropriate alternative first-line uterotonic for use in elective caesarean section (CS) during a national shortage of UK-licensed IV oxytocin from April-June 2014. An observational study was performed involving 2 groups of 22 women undergoing elective CS in a UK DGH during this period. Primary endpoints included mean estimated blood loss (EBL), haemoglobin drop post-operatively and transfusion requirement...

Pruritus is a common complaint associated with many conditions. It negatively impacts sleep, quality of life, and mortality. Itch is transmitted along both histaminergic and non-histaminergic pathways with a complex interplay between keratinocytes, immune cells and cutaneous neurons. Individuals who present with pruritus should undergo a thorough assessment, especially those over 65 years old, to exclude underlying malignancy. Treatment no longer consists of antihistamines alone. Physicians now have an array of therapies in their armamentarium, to help alleviate this distressing symptom...

ABSTRACT: Whilst survival rates for childhood cancers are excellent, it is known that these patients have an increased risk of death from disease recurrence and other causes. We investigate patterns, trends and survival of cancers in children and young adults in N. Ireland. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 21 years (1993-2013) of cancer incidence data including non-malignant brain tumours from the N. Ireland Cancer Registry for persons aged 0-24 years was analysed using Joinpoint regresssion for trend and the Kaplan Meier method for survival analysis up to end 2013 with excess mortality calculated at one and five years after first cancer diagnosis using standardised mortality ratios...

BACKGROUND: The educational value of post-take ward rounds (PTWRs) is an under-researched area of postgraduate medical education. OBJECTIVE: We investigated perceptions of this activity amongst higher specialty trainees. METHODS: The project was conducted in a large district general hospital in London, UK. Quantitative and qualitative data were collected to establish opinions of the PTWR amongst higher specialty trainees in medicine. Eighteen senior trainees were eligible to participate...
