D M McGoldrick, H P Redmond
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a potential source of morbidity and mortality in surgical in-patients. A number of guidelines exist that advise on prophylactic measures. We aimed to assess VTE prophylaxis prescribing practices and compliance with a kardex-based risk assessment tool in a general surgery population. METHODS: Data on general surgery in-patients were collected on two separate wards on two separate days. Drug kardexes were assessed for VTE prophylaxis measures and use of the risk assessment tool...

A Fishlock, C Scarsbrook, R Marsh
Introduction In 2011 the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published guidelines suggesting that clinicians offer total hip replacement (THR) to patients with displaced intracapsular hip fractures who could walk independently outside with no aids or one stick, who are not cognitively impaired and are ASA (American Society of Anesthesiologists) grade ≤2. They also stated that best practice is operating within 36 hours of presentation. This audit aimed to determine whether Scarborough Hospital was following these guidelines and compared the results with the national average...

This study aims to build on the small body of evidence in previously published study exploring professional attitudes toward deliberate self-harm (DSH) patients from a predominantly burns and plastic surgery perspective. The authors distributed a short paper-based questionnaire within the burns and plastics department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, where the authors gathered a mixture of qualitative and quantitative data surrounding this issue. Professionals generally agree that DSH patients require input from multiple services and that surgery is not always the best option...

At Leicester General Hospital, England, patients are assessed by a team of junior doctors for elective colorectal and hepatobiliary procedures. After a number of same day cancellations, a large discrepancy was identified between the findings at the preoperative assessment clinic and the anaesthetic assessment on the day of surgery. After a multidisciplinary meeting was held, three interventions were decided on with an aim to bring the preoperative assessment in line with the anaesthetic assessment. Firstly, a set of guidelines was written and introduced for the junior doctors to use as a reference when assessing patients...

AIMS AND METHODS: The IAPT scheme was introduced in 2007 to implement the recommendations from NICE guidelines regarding psychological therapy for depression. This retrospective audit carried out across two General Practice Surgeries evaluates the care being given in relation to the standards of NICE guidelines. RESULTS: Initial audit found variable concordance, however after discussion of this at a local audit meeting and the displaying of posters and leaflets detailing the IAPT scheme this was improved on re-audit...

We present the outcome of 270 cemented titanium alloy femoral stems. These patients were followed up annually both clinically and radiologically, and were included up until their last follow-up. 120 patients completed a 10-year follow-up. The 10-year survival of the Ultima Straight Stem cemented femoral component (defined by revision of the femoral stem) was 90.1% (95% CI=84.0-94.0%), with aseptic loosening being the major reason for failure. The preoperative Harris Hip Score improved from 35.3 to 79.3 at 10 years...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is rising within the UK, and poses a significant workload on primary and secondary care services. Greater general practitioner (GP) involvement in the diagnosis and management of BCC has been suggested to reduce this burden. In 2010, the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) produced guidelines on the management of low-risk BCCs by GP surgeons. AIM: To assess what proportion of BCCs are suitable for excision by GP surgeons, and to determine the potential demand for GP-led BCC surgery...

BACKGROUND: Mental training is rehearsal of mental imagery without physically performing the task. The aim of the study was to perform systematic review and meta-analysis on all the available data to evaluate the role of mental training in the acquisition of surgical technical skills. METHODS: The following search databases were used: EMBASE, MEDLINE, Web of Science, Clinicaltrials.gov.uk, SIGN guidelines, NICE guidelines, and Cochrane review register. Meta-analysis was performed using Revman 5...

INTRODUCTION: Liposuction for lymphoedematous limbs is an effective treatment for chronic lymphoedema, with excellent long-term results in well-selected patients. In 2008 NICE produced guidelines 'Liposuction for Chronic lymphoedema', acknowledging this treatment modality. However, there remain very few centers that provide this service in the United Kingdom. We aim to share our experience of our referral system at Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, Scotland. METHODS: A 10 year prospective database from 2005 to 2014 was analysed...

Background Looked after children and young people (LAC) have higher incidence of mental health problems than non-looked after children. Many mental health difficulties are missed in this group, in particular the effects of trauma and loss and the resulting depression. LAC often move between placements, which further disrupts their care and therapeutic interventions. NICE recommends that in most mental health disorders, children and adolescents should receive specific psychological therapies as first-line treatment, before medication...

IMPORTANCE: Sedative premedication is widely administered before surgery, but little clinical evidence supports its use. OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of sedative premedication on perioperative patient experience. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A randomized clinical trial, the PremedX study, enrolled 1062 adult patients who were younger than 70 years and had been scheduled for various elective surgeries under general anesthesia at 5 French teaching hospitals (in Marseille, Montpellier, Nimes, and Nice) between January 2013 and June 2014...

Diabetes risk increases exponentially with increasing BMI particularly if fat accumulates centrally and/or in the skeletal muscle, liver and other organs such as the pancreas. Those with diabetes and co-existing obesity, particularly if it is severe, are also at risk of other obesity-related conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, obstructive sleep apnoea, joint pain, many cancers and depression. In people with impaired glucose tolerance, modest weight loss can reduce the development of overt diabetes by 50% or more over four years...

Salzbergian\solz-bərgē-ən\ adjective of, relating to, or following the teachings of Arnold Salzberg. Noun one who embodies all that Arnold Salzberg taught about humanity. Noun one who has obtained his or her HB degree. Webster's dictionary would probably define "Salzbergian" as one who trained under Arnold Salzberg and exhibits the same great character traits, mentoring ability, and surgical skills. These might be the words that are used, but many times words cannot do justice to describing something so special...

BACKGROUND: A major determinant of treatment offered to patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is their intrathoracic (mediastinal) nodal status. If the disease has not spread to the ipsilateral mediastinal nodes, subcarinal (N2) nodes, or both, and the patient is otherwise considered fit for surgery, resection is often the treatment of choice. Planning the optimal treatment is therefore critically dependent on accurate staging of the disease. PET-CT (positron emission tomography-computed tomography) is a non-invasive staging method of the mediastinum, which is increasingly available and used by lung cancer multidisciplinary teams...

PURPOSE: To investigate why natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) has not yet become widely accepted and to prove whether the main reason is still the lack of appropriate platforms due to the deficiency of applicable interfaces. METHODS: To assess expectations of a suitable interface design, we performed a survey on human-machine interfaces for NOTES mechatronic support systems among surgeons, gastroenterologists, and medical engineers. Of 120 distributed questionnaires, each consisting of 14 distinct questions, 100 (83%) were eligible for analysis...

BACKGROUND: Breast, cervical and colorectal cancers are the three most frequent cancers in women, while lung, prostate and colorectal cancers are the most frequent in men. Much attention has been given to the economic evaluation of pharmaceuticals for treatment of cancer by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK and similar authorities internationally, while economic analysis developed for other types of anti-cancer interventions, including radiotherapy and surgery, are less common...
