INTRODUCTION AND AIMS To determine the uptake and usage of websites and social media (SM) by UK consultant (attending) plastic surgeons. METHODS Professional profiles of full BAPRAS members were searched on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, RealSelf, YouTube, ResearchGate in May 2013. Additional surgeons were identified from the follower lists of @BAPRASvoice(More)
Patients awaiting surgery for Dupuytren's contractures listed the problems from their Dupuytren's disease that had led them to request surgery and their relative priorities of the results of surgery. The listed problems were compared with the nine items comprising the Unité Rhumatologique des Affections de la Main (URAM) Dupuytren's disease-specific outcome(More)
We report outcomes and learning points from flexor sheath infection (FSI) cases presenting over one year to a United Kingdom (UK) hand unit. Between August 2009 and August 2010, 16 FSIs were confirmed from operation note findings. Patient age ranged from 12 to 82 years. All patients were posted a quickDASH questionnaire. In all cases, surgery was performed(More)
BACKGROUND Peer-assisted learning has advantages for students and tutors. AIMS We aimed to establish a novel 'near-peer' teaching scheme delivered by junior doctors for final-year medical students in Southeast Scotland. We report feedback from students regarding the perceived utility of this scheme, the results of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) of(More)
BACKGROUND Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography has been shown to be very accurate for identifying the perforator size, location, and intramuscular course, and the associated venous system, without exposing the patient to ionizing radiation. This study reports the authors' experience using this imaging modality in a large patient series. (More)
Non-union occurs in 5-10% of all fractures and is caused by a variety of mechanical and biological factors. Stable fixation is essential and many authors recommend the addition of bone graft. Our aim was to evaluate the results of internal fixation using Judet decortication and compression plating for long bone fractures and assess the impact of bone(More)
BACKGROUND Dupuytren's disease is a benign fibroproliferative disorder that causes the fingers to be drawn into the palm via formation of new tissue under the glabrous skin of the hand. This disorder causes functional limitations, but it can be treated through a variety of surgical techniques. As a chronic condition, it tends to recur. OBJECTIVES To(More)
Variables associated with recurrent Dupuytren's disease, or a 'diathesis', have been investigated, but those associated with functional outcome and complications are less well studied. Outcomes 1 or 5 years after an aponeurotomy, fasciectomy or dermofasciectomy were assessed by patient interview and examination at five UK centres. A total of 432 procedures(More)
BACKGROUND Medical students value teaching by junior doctors and find it comparable to consultant-led teaching. Although several junior doctor-led teaching programmes have been developed, there is insufficient information in the literature to guide junior doctors planning on developing such programmes. AIM This article gives junior doctors 12 practical(More)
