Ganglion of the wrist is one of the the most common lesions of the hand. The cause of pain in an occult dorsal wrist ganglion has been linked to compression of the posterior interosseous nerve at the wrist. A case is presented in this paper and the pathoanatomy discussed. Ultrasound-guided aspiration after hyaluronidase instillation provided a useful(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of a specialist foot care program designed to prevent a second amputation and to assess peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and peripheral neuropathy in diabetic unilateral lower-limb amputees. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Investigations were carried out in 143 diabetic lower-limb unilateral amputees referred to a subregional(More)
Four novel zinc (II)-substituted phthalocyanines, varying in charge and hydrophobicity, were evaluated in vivo as new photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy. Two rat tumours with differing vascularity were used: a mammary carcinoma (LMC1) and a fibrosarcoma (LSBD1), with vascular components six times higher in the latter (10.8%+/-1.5) than in the former(More)
The ability of 5-aminolaevulinic acid and some of its esterified derivatives to induce porphyrin accumulation has been examined in CaNT murine mammary carcinoma cells growing in culture and as tumours in vivo. Topical or intravenous administration of 5-aminolaevulinic acid-esters to mice bearing subcutaneous tumours produced lower porphyrin levels in the(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a developing approach to the treatment of solid tumours which requires the combined action of light and a photosensitizing drug in the presence of adequate levels of molecular oxygen. We have developed a novel series of photosensitizers based on zinc phthalocyanine which are water-soluble and contain neutral (TDEPC), positive(More)
