INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary metastasectomy and indeed redo-pulmonary metastasectomy are now commonly performed thoracic surgical procedures. The air-sealant, haemostatic, and necrotic properties of the KLS Martin Limax Nd:YAG laser at 1.318 μm make it an ideal tool for limited lung resection such as metastasectomy. We present our initial experience of thoracoscopic laser metastasectomy. METHODS: We reviewed data from the first seven patients in our unit to undergo thoracoscopic laser metastasectomy, in particular, patient age, gender, primary malignancy, primary treatment, complications, length of stay (LOS), and final histopathology...

BACKGROUND: Green exercise, defined as exercising in nature, demonstrates mental and physical health benefits. There is limited literature on green exercise as part of the treatment for chronic pain. Our objective was to investigate chronic pain patients' perceptions of green exercise and the possible barriers that may arise in employing it as part of their treatment regimes. METHODS: After institutional ethics committee approval, a convenience sample of 113 adult patients, who attended a chronic pain clinic, were included...

AIMS: This study assessed voter participation and attitudes towards voting among people attending mental health services in Dublin, Ireland. METHODS: Psychiatry outpatients and inpatients were studied over2 months following Ireland's 2016 general election (n = 117). Characteristics of participants who did and did not vote were compared and reasons for voting choices explored...

INTRODUCTION: The medical elective is a common component of undergraduate medical education in the UK and Ireland. These are often undertaken in varied hospitals and countries across the world, most of which are not related to their parent institutions, in order to explore specialties and regions of interest. However experiences are varied, with goals not always established beforehand, or indeed reached, when present. METHODS: Using a novel 20-item, self-administered questionnaire distributed via social media to 436 medical students and doctors in the UK and Republic of Ireland, we sought to delineate common elective experiences and establish what procedures and clinical scenarios medical students commonly undertake and manage during their medical electives, in order to ascertain their confidence level with each of these tasks at the time of their medical electives...

BACKGROUND: Patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) were traditionally denied access to MR imaging due to safety concerns. AIMS: The aim of this study was to review a single-center experience of MR imaging at 1.5T of patients with CIEDs and survey national availability of this service. METHODS: Three hundred thirty-four patients with CIEDs were included in the review. Two hundred nine patients did not progress to MRI due to non MR-conditional CIEDs, retained pacing leads, recent implant insertion, and other patient factors...

BACKGROUND: Governing bodies are largely responsible for the monitoring and management of risks associated with a safe playing environment, yet adherence to regulations is currently unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate and evaluate the current status of medical personnel, facilities, and equipment in Rugby Union clubs at regional level in England. METHODS: A nationwide cross-sectional survey of 242 registered clubs was undertaken, where clubs were surveyed online on their current medical personnel, facilities, and equipment provision, according to regulation 9 of the Rugby Football Union (RFU)...

BACKGROUND: Litigation claims related to surgery have increased significantly in recent years. Despite the medico-legal importance of clinical records, there have been few published studies describing the quality of medical records in orthopaedic surgery. This study aimed to evaluate the quality of clinical note taking in an elective orthopaedic setting over a 10-year period by comparing medical records from 2003 and 2013. METHODS: We used the previously validated Surgical Tool for Auditing Records (STAR) on a sample of 20 medical records from each year...

INTRODUCTION: A combined academic and clinical training programme for junior doctors in Ireland, the academic track for internship, has recently been launched. The academic track offers newly graduated doctors protected time within the working week to undertake a research project in addition to funding, an academic supervisor, and additional training in research skills. This study seeks to investigate the views of undergraduate medical students. METHODS: The study population was undergraduate medical students at Trinity College Dublin in their penultimate year of study...

INTRODUCTION: Disorders of the musculoskeletal system are the main cause of disability and lost working days worldwide, and osteoarthritis affects almost half a million people in Ireland. Appropriate access and resourcing of general practice and orthopaedics is a necessary measure for the provision of a safe and efficient health service. One area that remains particularly challenging in Ireland is that of outpatient waiting lists, and the purpose of this study was to assess the attitudes and experiences of general practitioners in the Irish midlands with regard to orthopaedic services and to evaluate these in the context of national strategies and international best practice...

Hongyang Lu, Zhiming Jiang, Chenghui Li
Adjuvant chemotherapeutics and prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) are both recommended in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for treating individuals suffering from surgically resected pT1-2N0M0 small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Whether adjuvant chemotherapy combined with PCI is superior to adjuvant chemotherapy alone in these patients is largely unknown. PCI may therefore be with uncertain effects in surgically resected pT1-2N0M0 SCLC.

BACKGROUND: Studies comparing characteristics and in-hospital outcomes for heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) for hospitalisations undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) remain limited. AIM: This sought to investigate characteristics and in-hospital outcomes for HFpEF and HFpEF hospitalisations undergoing STEMI-PCI. METHODS: The National inpatient sample database from years 2012 to 2014 was queried and appropriate International Classification of Disease, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification codes were utilised to identify study cohorts...

BACKGROUND: Centralisation of rectal cancer surgery has altered the delivery of colorectal cancer care in Ireland. This has resulted in an increased demand for elective surgical beds in designated centres. AIM: This study aimed to assess if day of surgery admission (DOSA), in conjunction with implementation of a coordinated enhanced recovery pathway can reduce length of stay following elective rectal cancer resection. METHODS: This is a retrospective review from a single institution...

BACKGROUND: The Infant Aphakia Treatment Study (IATS) compared the treatment of unilateral cataract in infants aged 1-6 months with primary intraocular lens (IOL) implantation vs aphakia with contact lens (CL) correction. AIMS: This study aims to assess the current trends in the treatment of unilateral congenital cataract in infants less than 6 months at surgery in the UK and Ireland. METHODS: An anonymous survey was emailed to the 200 members of the BIPOSA mailing list with 14 questions to assess treatment choice (primary intraocular lens (IOL) vs aphakia with contact lens (CL)), reasons for this choice, and assessment of local CL services...
