Journal Article
Totty, J., Bua, N., Smith, G., Harwood, A., Carradice, D., Wallace, T., & Chetter, I. (2017). Dialkylcarbamoyl chloride (DACC)-coated dressings in the management and prevention of wound infection: A systematic review. Journal of Wound Care, 26(3), 107-114. doi:10.12968/jowc.2017.26.3.107

Objective: Dialkylcarbomoyl chloride (DACC)-coated dressings (Leukomed Sorbact and Cutimed Sorbact) irreversibly bind bacteria at the wound surface that are then removed when the dressing is changed. They are a recent addition to the wound care profe... Read More

A comparison of the effectiveness of treating those with and without the complications of superficial venous insufficiency (2014)
Journal Article
Carradice, D., Gohil, R., Chetter, I., & Wallace, T. (2014). A comparison of the effectiveness of treating those with and without the complications of superficial venous insufficiency. Annals of Surgery, 260(2), (396-401). doi:10.1097/sla.0000000000000541. ISSN 0003-4932

Objective: To test the hypothesis that patients with soft tissue changes related to superficial venous insufficiency (SVI) have greater benefits from treatment than those with only symptomatic varicose veins. Background: A commonly held view is that... Read More

Randomized clinical trial of endovenous laser ablation versus conventional surgery for small saphenous varicose veins (2013)
Journal Article
Samuel, N., Carradice, D., Wallace, T., Mekako, A., Hatfield, J., & Chetter, I. (2013). Randomized clinical trial of endovenous laser ablation versus conventional surgery for small saphenous varicose veins. Annals of Surgery, 257(3), (419-426). doi:10.1097/SLA.0b013e318275f4e4. ISSN 0003-4932

Introduction: No randomized clinical trial comparing treatment options for small saphenous vein (SSV) incompetence exists, and there is no clear evidence that this axis behaves the same as the great saphenous vein after treatment. This means that the... Read More
