This study was a randomised clinical trial on 60 candidates undergoing lumbar disc herniation surgery. Anxiety rate and vital signs were measured before and after the intervention. There was a statistically significant difference between the two groups in terms of the preoperative anxiety, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, pulse and respiratory rate (P = 0.0001). Neurosurgery perioperative nurses can make use of multimedia in preoperative nursing visit based on the needs of patients.

A preoperative requirement is the correct and clear marking of a specific surgical site. We aimed to compare the ability of marker pens to withstand surgical preparation. Five volunteers with different Fitzpatrick skin types were marked with ten pens. Marked skin sites were prepared with chlorhexidine followed by chlorhexidine, betadine followed by chlorhexidine, and betadine followed by betadine. Each site was photographed in theatre. Two volunteers ranked the top three most visible marker pens from each photograph...

Due to their clinical advantages, synthetic mono-filament sutures are dominantly used for postoperative wound closures. We present two patients who suffered rare skin reactions to either poliglecaprone 25 or glyconate sutures, following breast cancer lumpectomy. This report aims to make perioperative practitioners and clinicians aware of reactions to sutures and possible management options.

A 43-year old previously fit and well gentleman presented to the emergency department (ED) with a two day history of worsening epigastric pain. He had had coryzal symptoms the preceding week but had no other past medical history. He was haemodynamically stable at presentation and an ultrasound scan (US) performed in the ED could not definitively rule out intra-abdominal fluid. In view of his tender abdomen on examination and a haemoglobin level of 9.2g/dL, a computerised tomography (CT) scan was performed and revealed extensive high-density fluid within the peritoneal cavity, raising the possibility of a concealed bleed but no obvious source was identified by the scan...

Orthopaedic theatre can be noisy. Fifty percent of orthopaedic theatre staff have features of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). In this study, decibel (dB) levels were recorded in 17 total knee replacements (TKRs) and 11 total hip replacements (THRs). Noise levels reached 105.6dB(A) using a hammer and 97.9dB(A) with an oscillating saw. Exposure to levels above 90dB (which occurred in every case) even for short time periods is proven to cause irreversible loss of hearing. Tools used in orthopaedic theatre produce impulse noises that can cause NIHL...

Neck of femur (NOF) fractures in elderly patients are the most frequent condition which an orthopaedic surgeon confronts nowadays. The incidence of these fractures is increasing as the population continues to age. These patients absorb the majority of the resources in the hospitals, as their healthcare demands are increased. This study included all patients who were admitted to our hospital between January and October 2015 following a neck of femur fracture. A total of 336 patients were included (72.3% female)...

This article describes how restrictions to working hours have encouraged the expansion of the surgical care practitioner role. It also discusses how this role has evolved and the identity that has been formed in the context of interprofessional surgical education.

#15
Anthony Andreas Theodorides
Elastomeric pumps are mechanical devices composed of an elastomeric balloon reservoir into which the drug to be infused is stored, a protective casing (used by some manufacturers), a flow controller and a wound catheter. In orthopaedics they are used to provide continuous local infiltration analgesia. In this way patients rely less on other routes of analgesia and thus avoid their systemic side effects. Studies have shown good response to analgesia with these pumps for the first 24 hours but their benefit is not as clear at 48 and 72 hours...

Over many centuries, wounds of the heart were thought to be fatal. With the introduction of first anaesthesia and then antiseptic surgery in the second half of the 19th century, there was an explosion in surgery; the abdominal cavity, the chest, the skull were explored and operated upon and yet the heart was considered to be a 'no go' region of the body. One of the greatest and most innovative surgeons of that time, Theodor Billroth of Vienna, who must be considered one of the fathers of modern surgery, with pioneering work on many parts of the body, wrote: 'The surgeon who attempts to suture a wound of the heart should lose the respect of his colleagues'...

Our aim was to implement a 23-hour pathway for uncomplicated trauma to overcome delays and improve efficiency. A retrospective review of a single surgeon series of 105 consecutive patients operated on between July 2010 and July 2011 was performed. With recently revised trauma tariffs, we believe an efficient day surgery trauma list improves theatre utilisation, reduces inpatient bed demands, prioritises major and sub-specialist trauma and delivers patient satisfaction.

The availability of medical information on the World Wide Web has grown as information technology has become more accessible. Patients seeking online information may be able to selfselect conditions having been adequately informed. This study evaluates the effect of eHealth information on those presenting to hospital with a suspected appendicitis and its effect on their management and clinical outcome. Patients who had performed online reading were more likely to go to theatre but were less likely to have a confirmed histological diagnosis of appendicitis...

One of the innate features of human behaviour is to enhance personal image in order to look different from the rest of the crowd and to satisfy a need for individualism. People use different dress codes, body makeup and artificial gadgets to improve their personal and physical appearance. The main motive behind all these efforts is personal satisfaction, to appear attractive to others and to overcome phobias and complexes.

The aim of this study was to identify risk factors associated with perioperative corneal abrasion at a single hospital in Mineola, New York (United States). A chart review was conducted of patients with perioperative corneal abrasion following non-ocular surgery and age-matched controls between June 2011 and November 2013. An age-stratified logistic regression model evaluated the association between corneal abrasion and potentially predisposing variables. The adjusted odds of a corneal abrasion occurring were 4...
