INTRODUCTION: Bronchial artery embolisation (BAE) is an established treatment method for massive haemoptysis. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of BAE on in-hospital outcomes and long-term survival in patients with massive haemoptysis. METHODS: Retrospective review of all cases of acute massive haemoptysis treated by BAE between April 2000 and April 2012 with at least a 5 year follow up of each patient. Targeted BAE was performed in cases with lateralising symptoms, bronchoscopic s...

Background: The process-orientated multidisciplinary approach (POMA) is a means of delivering consultant-led healthcare from the first outpatient clinic visit through to discharge, bringing together clinical and operational management that can result in effective resource utilisation and improved patient care. Methods: Prospectively collected data from patients undergoing primary isolated coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) were collected before and after the application of POMA (246 and 260 pat...

An 11-year-old girl presented with a swollen medial aspect of the left forefoot following a blunt injury. Initial imaging revealed a well-defined calcific structure with a radiolucent line across it, medial to the head of the first metatarsal. The swelling and pain completely subsided over the course of the following week. Follow-up imaging revealed a near complete resolution of the calcific density. This unusual presentation of acute post-traumatic deposition of calcium hydroxyapatite could be ...

There is an urgent need for structured surgical training and assessment due to the reduction in the training duration with the European Working Time Directive (EWTD). We propose a model for objective skill assessment, the PAR-Diagonal Operating Matrix (PAR-DOM) which breaks down the task of vascular anastomosis into clearly defined skills. The PAR-DOM is made up of a 3=5 table and progress is made along vectors defined on the x-axis as PAR and on the y-axis as four levels. PAR defines three skil...

: We discuss an extremely unusual presentation of a 19-month-old child with cor triatriatum and an intact interatrial septum, who presented for the first time at the age of 16 months with wheezing and repeated lower respiratory tract infections. At surgery, a thick fibromuscular membrane with a 2-3 mm eccentrically placed orifice was identified, and following surgical resection of the membrane the child made an uneventful recovery. This case demonstrates the need for investigating children with ...

We prospectively assessed the patient awareness of risk factors of coronary artery disease (CAD) in this study by performing a voluntary questionnaire survey of 235 patients undergoing first time coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) between May and December 2003. We assessed patient awareness of smoking, hypertension (HT), hypercholesterolaemia (HC), obesity, family history (FM) and diabetes (DM) and role of medication in secondary prevention. One hundred and eighty-seven ex- or current smoker...
