CT scanning is accepted as a regular component of the investigation of patients with simple craniosynostosis. In a series of 109 cases with simple craniosynostoses treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, a correct diagnosis on the basis of clinical findings was made in 100% of cases by an experienced clinician. CT scans with 3D reconstructions(More)
BACKGROUND Reduction mammaplasty substantially alleviates physical and psychological symptoms of mammary hyperplasia, but the effect on psychosexual function has not been analyzed so far. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of this common procedure on both operative and psychosexual satisfaction. METHODS All women who underwent reduction(More)
An 8-year retrospective review of patients admitted to Stoke Mandeville Hospital (Aylesbury, UK) because of burns sustained by hot bath and shower water was undertaken. Fifty-seven patients of all ages were identified and stratified into paediatric (< 16 years) and adult groups. Nine patients died. The main characteristics of the burns, causes and outcomes(More)
The effects on cell and matrix morphology of a single interrupted suture are described in rabbit (vascular) and mouse (avascular) digital flexor tendons. This model of tendon injury is reproducible and suitable for quantitative histological analysis. Tendons analysed at day 1, 3, 5, 7 and 14 after wounding demonstrated a well-demarcated "acellular zone"(More)
Tendon defect reconstruction is amongst the most technically challenging areas in hand surgery. Tendon substance deficiency reconstruction techniques include lengthening, grafting, two-stage reconstruction and tendon transfers, however each is associated with unique challenges over and above direct repair. We describe a novel 'turnover lengthening'(More)
Wrist arthroscopy allows complete visualization under magnification and is essentially a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. The first wrist arthroscopy was described by Chen in 1979. Since then, the indications and applications for wrist arthroscopy continue to expand as new techniques and instrumentation evolve.
Background Spontaneous flexor tendon rupture is considered to be invariably associated with previous hand/wrist injury or systemic disease such as rheumatoid arthritis. Case Description A 54-year-old man presented with a 4-month history of mild ulnar wrist pain and spontaneous left little finger flexion loss in the absence of distant/recent trauma and(More)
BACKGROUND Hand injuries are common, contributing up to 30% of accident and emergency (A&E) attendances. The aim of this study was to prospectively analyse the pathological demographics of hand injuries in a level 1 trauma centre with a Hand Trauma Unit and direct A&E links, and compare clinical and intra-operative findings. The null hypothesis was that(More)
