A prospective controlled trial was carried out to assess the healing efficacy of calcium alginate and paraffin gauze on split skin graft donor sites. Thirty patients were randomised to the calcium alginate group and 21 to the paraffin gauze group. The donor sites were assessed at 10 days post harvesting to determine if they were completely healed (100%) or(More)
In this prospective study, eight consecutive patients underwent excision of oral cavity cancer and reconstruction with a microvascular free flap. Six patients had one pre- and two postoperative assessments of speech and swallowing at four to six weeks and four to six months respectively. One patient could not attend for the preoperative assessment and(More)
With the introduction of low-profile mini-plating systems, a trend has developed towards open reduction and rigid internal fixation (ORIF) of fractures of the cranio-facial skeleton. The current policy for management of zygomatic fractures in our unit is to attempt primary reduction by traditional methods, and proceed to ORIF in the event of unsatisfactory(More)
A number of early postoperative mobilisation regimes have been developed in an attempt to increase tendon excursion and gliding and thereby reduce formation of adhesions following repair of flexor tendons. Early active flexion mobilisation regimes are becoming more popular, and have replaced early passive flexion regimes in many centres. The aim of the(More)
Brachytherapy delivered within the early postoperative period has been associated with delayed wound healing and wound breakdown. The objective of this study was to determine whether reconstruction with a microvascular free flap reduced the incidence of wound breakdown in the presence of early postoperative brachytherapy following wide excision of soft(More)
Brachytherapy delivered within the early post-operative period has been associated with delayed healing and wound breakdown. The objective of this study was to determine whether reconstruction with a microvascular free flap reduced the incidence of wound breakdown after early post-operative brachytherapy and wide excision of soft tissue sarcomas. Four(More)
