Chapter
Patients with diabetic foot may present as an emergency with sepsis (with or without ischaemia); they may also present with tissue loss.
Article
Infected popliteal aneurysm is a rare high-risk condition that can present as an emergency with acute rupture and sepsis. Management of acute ischemia in the presence of local and systemic sepsis is challenging. Open surgery is not always possible and carries a high risk of morbidity and death. An endovascular approach has been advocated in infecte...
Article
Spinal cord ischemia (SCI) is a rare disease that leads to variable degrees of neurological deficit including permanent paraplegia. It has been reported after open and endovascular interventions of the thoracic and abdominal aorta, but it is extremely rare after interventions involving peripheral vessels. We present a case of permanent paraplegia a...

The aim of this study was to determine the clinical outcome of lower limb arterial angioplasty in a busy district general hospital practice. All angioplasties performed from January 1999 to December 2004 were identified and data collected included cardiovascular risk factors, indications for and complications of angioplasty, limb salvage and patien...
Article
Nerve injury is one of the most common complications of varicose vein surgery and is a frequent cause for litigation but its incidence following lower limb arterial surgery has not been well documented. This study was undertaken to determine the incidence of nerve injury following lower limb arterial surgery. This was addressed in relation to long...
Article
Paraplegia secondary to spinal cord ischaemia is a rare but devastating complication of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. We report a case of paraplegia following elective endovascular repair of an infrarenal aortic aneurysm. A cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drain was immediately inserted and resulted in full neurological recovery. This case highlights...
Article
Appendicectomy is one of the most common surgical emergency procedures. Intraperitoneal culture during appendicectomy is routine practice in some hospitals, while some surgeons advocate abandoning this routine. The aim of our study is to determine the value of intraoperative abdominal cavity culture and its impact on the patient management. Retrosp...
Article
Background: Previous trials attempting to define the benefit of Intraoperative Autotransfusion (IAT) are conflicting. Methods: We performed a single-centre single-surgeon analysis of 100 patients who underwent AAA surgery, comparing 50 patients who received homologous blood alone, with 50 patients who received IAT in the form of the Cell Saver. Res...
Article
A 63-year-old male underwent emergency repair of a ruptured juxtarenal aortic aneurysm via a transabdominal approach using an aorto-bi-iliac Dacron graft. This became infected. A right axillobifemoral bypass was placed and the infected graft was removed with oversewing of the aorta. The patient was re-admitted 8 months later with an infected axillo...
Article
Patients with diabetes mellitus are subject to wound infection with unusual pathogens. A patient who had colonic surgery developed Aeromonas hydrophila wound infection, which mainly results from contamination by water or soil.

Article
Most cases of splenic artery aneurysm are asymptomatic, being found incidentally at the time of investigations (e.g. ultrasound, computed tomography, angiography) or laparotomy for other conditions. Rupture of a splenic artery aneurysm with erosion into the stomach is a rare cause of massive upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage. This case report is,...
