The use of surface neuromuscular electrical stimulation (SNMES) in medicine is well established. However, discomfort has been identified as limiting the use of SNMES in these applications. This pilot study investigated the influence of various electrode sizes and their positioning on perceived pain and discomfort during neuromuscular electrical stimulation(More)
INTRODUCTION With increasing numbers of patients diagnosed with ESRD, arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation has become a major factor in improving both dialysis related outcomes and quality of life of those patients. Compared to other types of access it has been established that a functional AVF access is the least likely to be associated with thrombosis,(More)
INTRODUCTION Radiation arteritis following neck irradiation as a treatment for head and neck malignancy has been well documented. The long-term sequelae of radiation exposure of the carotid arteries may take years to manifest clinically, and extra-cranial carotid artery (ECCA) stenosis is a well-recognised vascular complication. These carotid lesions should(More)
INTRODUCTION A brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula (BB-AVF) can provide access for haemodialysis in patients who are not eligible for a more superficial fistula. However, it is unclear whether one- or two-stage BB-AVF is the best option for patients. AIM To systematically assess the difference between both procedures in terms of access maturation,(More)
BACKGROUND Patients undergoing vascular surgery procedures constitute a 'high-risk' group. Fatal and disabling perioperative complications are common. Complications arise via multiple aetiological pathways. This mechanistic redundancy limits techniques to reduce complications that target individual mechanisms, for example, anti-platelet agents.
