Twenty patients with gynaecomastia undergoing operations on 33 breasts were entered into a prospective randomised controlled clinical study. The breasts were randomised to receive nothing or adrenaline infiltration prior to mastectomy. Blood loss during surgery and drainage afterwards were compared between the two groups. Statistical analysis using the(More)
INTRODUCTION AND AIMS There are several studies in the literature suggesting that smoking increases the complication rate in various plastic surgery operations. We did a study on 402 patients to see the effect of smoking on breast reduction. The objective was to raise the controversial issue of whether breast reduction could be refused to smokers who fail(More)

Plasma catecholamine concentrations have been measured in nine patients undergoing rhinoplasty following infiltration to the facial area of 21 ml of 0.5% lignocaine with adrenaline 1:200,000 and in seven patients undergoing brachial plexus blockade with 40 ml of 0.5% lignocaine, 0.25% bupivacaine and adrenaline 1:200,000. In the rhinoplasty group there was(More)
The value of thermography as a reliable, noninvasive, and rapid method of investigating patients with peripheral vascular disease is discussed. Thermography has great value in managing deep venous thrombosis, in estimating the optimal site of amputation, in evaluating vasoactive drugs, and correctly timing the division of pedicled skin flaps. Its use in(More)
Abdominoplasty surgery leads to a lower abdom-inal and periumbilical scar, but subsequent abdominal surgery is not usually contraindicated. Failed pneumoperitoneum is a recognised complication of laparoscopic surgery. We present a case in which a failed pneumoperitoneum appeared to be directly attributable to the scarring following abdominoplasty. The(More)
Calciphylaxis (uraemic gangrene syndrome) is a rare complication of chronic renal failure and secondary hyperparathyroidism. Patients present with painful purple skin lesions which undergo necrosis and ulceration. The histology is specific. There is medial calcification with intimal hyperplasia and thrombosis of the lumen of small sized arteries in the(More)
A 28-year-old fitter and turner was scalped at work. The scalp was avulsed from the nuchal area to the eyebrows in one piece. It was successfully replanted by microvascular surgery. Leeches were used to decongest the flap when venous drainage appeared inadequate during the first week. Only a small part of the flap eventually failed to survive and normal(More)
After-exercise thermography of the legs was carried out on 50 patients before undergoing major abdominal surgery (group 1) and on 59 patients before elective hip surgery (group 2). The incidence of postoperative deep vein thrombosis (DVT)--diagnosed by the 125I-fibrinogen uptake test in group 1 and phlebography in group 2--was significantly higher in(More)
