Introduction
BSc (Hons), MB, BS (Lond), GAICD, DRCOG, GradDipAesthMed (UK), PGCert BA, MRCS (Eng), AFACP, FCPCA, FFMACCS, FACCS, FASCBS. I completed my bachelor’s and medical degrees from King’s College London and University College London, respectively, and have worked across a variety of surgical specialties but focussed on plastic/ burns surgery, and on head/ neck reconstruction. I pursued a higher fellowship in general cosmetic surgery in Australia and a 'super-specialty' fellowship in cosmetic penile surgery, where I spent two years as fellow to Prof. Colin Moore. I have PG qualifications in surgery and medicine from America, Australia, and Britain. Now, I am exclusively in private clinical practice, and am a director of a various companies. I am a KOL/ recognized educator in cosmetic practice

Bilateral extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass-grafting of the cerebral circulation is uncommon. We report a case of anterior cerebral artery EC-IC bypass using the thoracodorsal axis artery-graft. The bifurcation of the thoracodorsal axis allows bypass of both anterior hemispheres, while matching appropriate small-vessel dimensions.

The high prevalence of urinary tract infections (UTIs) places a significant burden on healthcare systems. Clinicians may over-manage the issue, and there is great variability in practice, with economic- and resource- implications. Up to 40% of patients with a suspected UTI do not have an infection. Using PubMed (Medline) to shortlist relevant paper...

Chlorobenzalmalononitrile or 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS) is a commonly used riot control agent. Although generally deemed to be safe for this application, it is known that CS can cause a number of adverse effects in those exposed to it. Understanding its properties and its side effects is important in ensuring optimal medical management...

Discussion involved the possibility of mammogra...

Anatomy demonstrators (ADs) play an important role not only in health schools, by virtue of primarily teaching medical students, but also in paramedical disciplines such as dentistry, biomedical science and physiotherapy. Ads are typically junior clinicians who take 6 or 12 months out of their postgraduate training/work to teach. They impart a clin...

Though widely reported, Hair-thread Tourniquet Syndrome (HTTS) is poorly recognized. It refers to external, mechanical, circumferential constriction of an appendage, typically with an end-artery such as a digit, resulting in a "compartment syndrome-like" situation. HTTS is illustrated using the case of an infant. Children presenting with irritabili...
Article
Fillers can be used to correct contour-defects. Due to the irregularities of defects, estimating the volume of filler required can be difficult. This frequently results in surgeons taking a step-wise approach to filler-injection, usually occurring over different appointments. Using a patient with pectus excavatum as an example, we provide a simple...

Objectives: In oncology, irradiation of the neck especially after surgery may result in considerable morbidity and dysfunction. The irradiation causes fibrosis of the skin and underlying tissues which is vulnerable to trauma, and healing and repair is significantly impaired. The tissues tend to have an unhealthy appearance and patina, and develop a...

Fig. 2 Full-thickness burns to his left upper limb at day 9 Patients with large burns requiring surgical debridement present a significant challenge when they are not surgical candidates. This is most often due to the risks associated with surgery outweighing the benefits in patients with co-morbidities. The risk of infection adds to this dilemma....

The potential dangers of chlorhexidine must be conveyed to the medical community. Health care professionals have little knowledge about the side effects and complications that may arise from this increasingly used compound. The suggestions in this case study may help to reduce the risk of adverse effects.

The 'ideal wound dressing' obviously depends on the requirements of the wound in question. Nevertheless, dressing characteristics that commonly facilitate an optimum healing environment are: The ability to adapt to wound position, size, depth and shape Being of high comfort; Being soft, with a moist wound interface Providing an effective barrier ag...

Serum chromogranin A is the most useful general and prognostic tumour marker available for neuroendocrine tumour (NET) patients. The role of other tumour markers is less clear. In order to determine the diagnostic and prognostic value of serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and human chorionic gonadotrophin-beta (hCGbeta) in NETs, a database containing bi...
