A frail 93-year-old lady presented with delirium, on a background of heart failure, cerebrovascular disease, constipation and osteoporosis. A computed tomography (CT) pulmonary angiography, undertaken due to persistent hypoxia, identified no pathology aside from an unusual appearance of the left hypochondrium, necessitating further elucidation with CT abdomen. This unexpectedly reported the presence of a gastric band, leading us to consider possible misidentification. Perusing her General Practi...

A scoping literature review was conducted to explore what evidence is available for the management of this patient group. METHODS MEDLINE (PubMed) CINAHL, EMBASE and the Cochrane databases of published literature and the HMIC and S...

Introduction null process evaluations (PE) are increasingly used in parallel with randomised controlled trials (RCT) to inform the implementation of complex health interventions. This paper explores the learning accrued from conducting a PE within the Falls in Care Homes Study (FinCH), a large UK RCT. null Methods null in the FinCH study, six purposively sampled care homes provided data for the PE, which followed a realist approach. In this study researchers kept written diaries of their experie...

Biliary disease is common in the older population, and gallbladder dysfunction and increased bile lithogenicity predispose to calculi formation. This case demonstrates an unusual presentation of gallbladder empyema. A 90-year-old male with metastatic prostate cancer presented with hypoactive delirium. With no localising features, normal liver function tests but persistently raised inflammatory markers, he was initially managed as a urinary tract infection. Chest wall discomfort and swelling over...
