Relationship Between Activity Level and Knee Function Is Influenced by Negative Affect in Patients Undergoing Cell Therapy for Articular Cartilage Defects in the Knee. (2023)
Journal Article

BACKGROUND: Increased activity level is generally reported to be positively related to improved knee function after knee surgery. However, little research has been conducted into this relationship on an individual patient basis, or the influence of d...

Percutaneous or surgical management of post-infarction ventricular septal defects: The United Kingdom National Registry. (2022)
Journal Article

Background and Aims Postinfarction ventricular septal defect (PIVSD) is a mechanical complication of myocardial infarction (MI) with a poor prognosis. Surgical repair is the mainstay of treatment, although percutaneous closure is increasingly underta...

Sex differences in clinical profile and outcome after percutaneous coronary intervention for chronic total occlusion. (2022)
Journal Article

BACKGROUND: There are limited data around sex differences in the risk profile, treatments and outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesions in contemporary interventional practice. We investigated the i... Read More about Sex differences in clinical profile and outcome after percutaneous coronary intervention for chronic total occlusion..

"I could have a proper ankle" - a qualitative study of patients' perceptions of total ankle replacement and ankle fusion surgery. (2022)
Journal Article

BACKGROUND: End-stage ankle osteoarthritis typically causes severe pain and impaired function. Surgical treatment involves total ankle replacement (TAR) or ankle fusion. Definitive evidence about which procedure is optimal is lacking. No previous stu...

Comparison of Transfemoral versus Transsubclavian/Transaxillary access for transcatheter aortic valve replacement: A systematic review and meta-analysis (2022)
Journal Article

Femoral access is the gold standard for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Safe alternative access, that represents about 15 % of TAVR cases, remains important for patients without adequate transfemoral access. We aimed to perform a syste...

Intrathecal morphine in combination with bupivacaine as pre-emptive analgesia in posterior lumbar fusion surgery: a retrospective cohort study (2022)
Journal Article

Abstract Background The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of intrathecal morphine (ITM) in combination with bupivacaine as pre-emptive analgesia in patients undergoing posterior lumbar fusion surgery. This is in comparison with tradi... Read More about Intrathecal morphine in combination with bupivacaine as pre-emptive analgesia in posterior lumbar fusion surgery: a retrospective cohort study.

Prevalence, characteristics and mortality of cancer patients undergoing pericardiocentesis in the United States between 2004 and 2017. (2022)
Journal Article

BACKGROUND: Pericardiocentesis is undertaken in patients with cancer for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. However, there are limited data on the frequency, characteristics and mortality of patients with different cancers undergoing pericardiocent...

The Road to Total Knee Replacement - Utilisation of Knee Surgeries up to 10 Years Before Total Knee Replacement in England and Sweden. (2022)
Journal Article

OBJECTIVES: To compare the prevalence and timing of knee surgery (including meniscal, ligamentous, synovial and osteotomy) in the ten years prior to primary total knee replacement (TKR) between England and Sweden. METHODS: This was a population-based... Read More about The Road to Total Knee Replacement - Utilisation of Knee Surgeries up to 10 Years Before Total Knee Replacement in England and Sweden..

Cardiovascular outcomes and trends of Transcatheter vs. Surgical aortic valve replacement among octogenarians with heart failure: A Propensity Matched national cohort analysis. (2022)
Journal Article

Background: Heart failure (HF) is a complex clinical syndrome with symptoms and signs that result from any structural or functional impairment of ventricular filling or ejection of blood. Limited data is available regarding the in-hospital outcomes o...

TCT-146 Left Main Stem Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: Does Onsite Surgical Cover Make a Difference? (2022)
Journal Article

Background Nonsurgical centres (NSCs) contribute to the significant capacity of overall PCI in the UK. Whilst previous studies have demonstrated similar PCI outcomes in surgical centres (SCs) vs NSCs, it is unknown whether this applies to more comple...

Content and delivery of pre-operative interventions for patients undergoing total knee replacement: a rapid review. (2022)
Journal Article

BACKGROUND: Total knee replacement (TKR) is a common operation typically performed for end-stage knee osteoarthritis. Patients awaiting TKR often have poor health-related quality of life. Approximately 20% of patients experience persistent pain post-... Read More about Content and delivery of pre-operative interventions for patients undergoing total knee replacement: a rapid review..
