A Method for Improving Postoperative Analgesia in Patients Undergoing Saphenofemoral Ligation with 'Strip' of the Long Saphenous Vein

Conor J Magee, David Jones
2006 Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England  
The removal of distally fixed, uncemented, femoral components is one of the major challenges in revision orthopaedic surgery. Saw blades often have insufficient length to reach the distal part of the component and long chisels are inevitably wider proximally and can cause metaphyseal damage. We report the use of Illizarov wires passed serially using a power driver between the implant and host bone to divide the distal bone implant interface ( Fig. 1) . Their flexibility minimises damage to the

Antegrade stripping of the above-knee segment of the long saphenous vein (LSV) is a standard part of varicose vein surgery for saphenofemoral incompetence. Our unit uses a pin stripper to achieve satisfactory disruption of the above knee portion of the LSV. We describe a technique to improve pain control following a LSV strip. The LSV is stripped in the standard manner using a pinstripper that is tied to the proximal LSV using a 0 Vicryl™ (Ethicon, Edinburgh EH11 4HE, UK) tie. It is essential that the trailing length of tie be of sufficient distance to allow retrograde insertion of a size 7 umbilical catheter. Following removal of the pin stripper and LSV through a distal incision, the Vicryl tie is used to attach a size 7 umbilical catheter. Traction on the Vicryl tie from above allows the catheter to be drawn into the leg where the LSV has been stripped. Following this, 15 ml of 0.25% Chirocaine (Celltech, Cambridge CB4 4WE, UK) can be instilled as the catheter is removed, thus ensuring the bed of the LSV is adequately anaesthetised. We find this technique to be both simple and effective. A bleeding arteriovenous fistula can be a nightmare in peripheral haemodialysis units and such patients need to be transferred quickly to a surgical unit for intervention. We describe a simple

Lipid Peroxidation and Protein Turnover after Trauma and Cold Treatment in Skeletal Muscle of Exercise-trained Rats

Joan Matthews, Brian Fisher, David J. Magee, Ken Knight
2001 Journal of Physical Therapy Science  
Objective: To examine the effects of muscle trauma and cold application on indicators of oxygen free radical (OFR) and protein levels in exercise trained rat skeletal muscle. Design: Randomized intervention study following an exercise training program. Skeletal muscle tissue analysis 72 hours after trauma and cold treatments. Setting: University animal research laboratory. Subjects: 70 female Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 200-250 grams, housed in wire cages, provided with rat food and water ad

After the training program, 28 rats were randomly assigned to one of four groups to study indices of OFR levels after trauma and cold treatments. Further, 28 rats were randomly assigned to one of four groups to study muscle protein content after trauma and cold treatment. A sedentary group (N=7) was included in each analysis as a control group. Groups that received trauma were subjected to a single impact blunt trauma to the medial aspect of the gastrocnemius muscle of the left leg. Following the trauma procedure, groups that received cold treatment had 6 cold applications for 10 minutes, twice per day over a 72 hour period with a 3 × 2 inch gel cold pack, stored at -4°C. Main outcome measures: Medial gastrocnemius muscles were analyzed at 72 hours post-trauma for citrate synthase, indicators of OFR (malonaldehyde and lipofuscin) and protein content. Results: After the endurance training program, significant increases (p<0.05) in citrate synthase activity and protein levels were elicited, but the indices of lipid peroxidation (OFR indicators) were unaltered when compared to sedentary and exercise groups. Following trauma, the net loss of pre-existing protein was statistically significant (p<0.05) and lipid peroxidation activity increased slightly, but not significantly. Further, modulations in lipid peroxidation and protein content were induced in muscle by cold treatment followed by trauma (p<0.05) as the application of cold prevented or delayed indicators of OFR activity and protein loss in the medial gastrocnemius muscle. Conclusions: Cold treatment applied to traumatized muscle significantly decreased lipofuscin content (indices of OFR) and offset the catabolic response in protein content during the inflammatory phase. The early application of cold immediately after trauma is recommended within the protocol guidelines.

The assembly of the major desmosome glycoproteins of Madin-Darby canine kidney cells

Elizabeth J. Penn, Christine Hobson, David A. Rees, Anthony I. Magee
1989 FEBS Letters  
Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells are unable to form desmosomes when cultured in low-calcium medium ([Caz+]<O.l meq./l), but can be induced to do so by raising the calcium to physiological concentrations (l-2 meq./l). We have previously demonstrated that this block correlated with increased desmosomal protein turnover. Here we have immunoprecipitated the major desmosome glycoproteins [DGI (150 kDa) and DGII/III (120/100 kDa)] from non-ionic detergent-soluble and -insoluble fractions

Pulse-chase studies showed that both DGI and DGII/III became unextractable in non-ionic detergent before their arrival at the cell surface, whether cells were grown in standard or low-calcium medium. The non-ionic detergent insolubility of these membrane components is therefore a separate step which precedes the formation of morphologically recognisable desmosomes.

Purpose: Shoulder pain and dysfunction may occur after surgery for head and neck cancer (HNC) as a result of damage to or resection of the spinal accessory nerve. Previous research found that 12 weeks of upper extremity progressive resistance exercise training (PRET) improved shoulder outcomes in survivors of HNC; the purpose of this study was to determine whether benefits persisted over the longer term. Methods: Survivors of HNC were assigned at random to PRET (n ¼ 27) or a standard

At 12month follow-up, participants were mailed a questionnaire that assessed quality of life (QOL), shoulder outcomes, and exercise behaviour. Results: Of the 52 participants enrolled in the study, 44 were eligible at 12-month follow-up, and 37 (71%) completed the questionnaires. Overall, self-reported outcomes were largely sustained over the follow-up period. After 12 months, regardless of original group allocation, participants who continued resistance exercise training during the follow-up period reported better neck dissection-related functioning (p ¼ 0.021) and better QOL (p ¼ 0.011) than those who did not. Conclusions: Benefits of PRET were sustained at 12-month follow-up. Ongoing participation in resistance exercise training may prove valuable as a supportive care intervention for survivors of HNC.
