INTRODUCTION Controversy still surrounds the use of drains after total knee replacement (TKR). We compared closed suction drains, reinfusion drains and no drains by studying haemoglobin (Hb) levels, blood transfusion requirements and functional knee outcome scores in a single surgeon series. METHODS A total of 102 consecutive primary TKRs were performed(More)
AIM Part 2 of this prospective clinical study aimed to compare the 1-year outcome of root canal retreatments, when individual roots and teeth were assessed by periapical radiographs and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). METHODOLOGY Subjects participating in this study had been referred for management of an endodontic problem associated with one or(More)
INTRODUCTION In 2010 the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) released guidelines on venous thromboembolism. Strategy focused on risk assessment, antiembolic stockings, sequential compression devices, subcutaneous high dose enoxaparin (40 mg), early mobilisation and hydration. The 40 mg enoxaparin dose over the previous 20 mg regimen(More)

Posterior dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint is a relatively rare injury and can be difficult to diagnose acutely. We report 3 cases of posterior dislocation of the sternoclavicular joint who presented to the Accident & Emergency Department within a 3 month period. All 3 patients had sustained a significant injury to the shoulder region and(More)
AIM To provide an estimate of the proportion of successful outcomes of primary and secondary root canal treatments (retreatments) determined by periapical radiographs and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), a pooled analysis of the data collected from three previous prospective clinical outcome studies was undertaken. METHODOLOGY The analysis pooled the(More)
AIM To clinically assess the diagnostic yield from single parallel periapical, two parallax radiographs and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) by comparing the prevalence of periapical lesions associated with individual roots, and the total number of root canals in root-treated teeth in patients referred for root canal retreatment. METHODOLOGY Single(More)
