The authors report the outcomes of patients with keloid scars treated with a protocol of extralesional excision and immediate single-fraction adjuvant radiotherapy. The design of the study was a retrospective analysis with up to 5-year outcome data. The setting was a single treatment team, University Teaching Hospital in London, United Kingdom.

The management of iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms (IPAs) demands close co-operation between radiologist, vascular surgeon and plastic surgeon. Ideally, each patient should be reviewed employing a team approach. Many IPAs require only observation; those with a volume greater than 6 cm3 will require treatment as spontaneous thrombosis is uncommon. Radiological(More)
Syndactyly is one of the most common congenital hand deformities but there still remains a high incidence of contractures and web creep after attempts at surgical correction using many assorted techniques. Little attention has been paid to the potential junctional scar in the aetiology of web creep. To remedy this, a technique is described which involves a(More)
A new approach to the treatment of congenital "giant" naevi is described, using a curette in the first few weeks of life. This attempts to minimise the disadvantages of established methods of treatment. The technique is relatively atraumatic as there appears to be a natural cleavage plane within the dermis removing the pigmentation. Ten patients have been(More)
The association of pilomatrixoma and myotonic dystrophy has been described in the past in 13 publications in the English literature. The association seems to involve the development of pilomatrixomata before signs of myotonic dystrophy. Myotonic dystrophy is the commonest adult dystrophy and is an autosomaldominant disease with a variable phenotypic(More)
Over a period of six months, seven cases were documented of trauma to the nose as a result of flow driver continuous positive airway pressure in babies of very low birthweight (VLBW). There was a complication rate of 20% in the babies who required it. Deformities consisted of columella nasi necrosis which can occur within three days, flaring of nostrils(More)
Congenital gingival granular cell tumours are rare lesions which have only occasionally been reported in the UK. Clinical features are of a benign lesion which occurs almost exclusively in newborn, Caucasian females and the anterior maxilla is the commonest site. Treatment consists of local excision and is curative. The terminology concerning this condition(More)
Congenital midline cervical clefts (CMCC) are rare. There have been approximately 50 reports in the international literature with the majority found in Caucasian females. They consist of a skin tag, mucosal surface and a caudal sinus in the ventral midline of the neck. The embryological cause is disputed, as is the best course of treatment. A case of a(More)
The incidence of dental abnormalities in the cleft lip and palate population has been reported to be much higher than in the normal population. The role of genes in the production of a cleft lip and palate, and dental anomalies is thought to be complex, with autosomal dominant, recessive, and x-linked genes all playing a role. Noncleft parents can carry(More)
