The ‘reamer-irrigator-aspirator’ (RIA) is an innovation developed to reduce fat embolism (FE) and thermal necrosis (TN) that can occur during reaming/nailing of long-bone fractures. Since its inception its indications have expanded to include the treatment of long-bone osteomyelitis and as a harvester of bone graft/mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). This study(More)
Derquantel (DQL), a semi-synthetic member of a novel anthelmintic class, the spiroindoles, in combination with abamectin (ABA) [as the combination product STARTECT(®)] is a new entry for the treatment and control of parasites in sheep. The 19 studies reported herein were conducted in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom to demonstrate(More)
Aspiration of iliac crest bone marrow (ICBM) remains the most frequent technique used in harvesting multipotential stromal cells (MSCs) for bone regeneration. Although this tissue type is easily accessed by a surgeon, it has a low frequency of MSCs, which is significant given the high cell numbers required for bone regeneration strategies. Lipoaspirates(More)
Clopidogrel is a potent oral antiplatelet agent that is commonly prescribed to patients with cardiovascular disease. Patients presenting with proximal femoral fractures often have cardiovascular comorbidity, with many taking clopidogrel on admission. Scientific literature reports increased surgical bleeding in patients receiving clopidogrel, though not(More)
The reamer-irrigator-aspirator is increasingly being used to harvest autologous bone graft from the femur. The purpose of this study was to investigate the extent of neo-vascularisation and new bone formation that occurs within the medulla following the procedure, and determine if new bone formation would potentially allow a repeat bone harvest in those(More)
Synovial sarcoma of the larynx is extremely rare having been reported only six times previously in the literature. We add another case report, which to our knowledge is the first recorded case in a child. We discuss the alternative approach of combination chemotherapy and radiotherapy which in this case led to a remission lasting about 3 years. The(More)
Cryptosporidium parvum is a zoonotic Apicomplexa-protozoan pathogen that causes gastroenteritis and diarrhea in mammals worldwide. Globally, C. parvum is ubiquitous on dairy operations and is the pathogen most commonly diagnosed in association with calf diarrhea. Here, we describe the antibody response in 20 pregnant cows to a recombinant C. parvum oocyst(More)
It really is a great privilege to be here on this occasion. It has a particular resonance with me because both my parents spent most of their careers working for Lyons. I remember my father back in the fifties being immensely proud of what was happening in LEO. If someone could have told him then that one day I’d be in the Guildhall addressing a fifty year(More)
Accumulating evidence implicates cerebral fat embolism (CFE) as a causative agent in post-operative confusion (POC). CFE occurs following orthopaedic procedures including, intra-medullary (IM) nailing and total joint arthroplasty (TJA). The incidence of CFE is high (59-100% TJA) and the resulting POC is associated with higher overall complication rates.(More)
The objective of this study was to analyze the mnemonic reconstruction of a complex spatial configuration in a group of 10 men and women, 70-88 years, with a diagnosis of organic brain syndrome and 10 controls matched for age, sex and educational background. A Piagetian model of a geometrical configuration with contingent and non-contingent properties was(More)
