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

Evolution of an endovenous laser ablation practice for varicose veins (2012)
Journal Article
Samuel, N., Wallace, T., Carradice, D., Smith, G., Mazari, F., & Chetter, I. (2013). Evolution of an endovenous laser ablation practice for varicose veins. Phlebology, 28(5), (248-256). doi:10.1258/phleb.2011.011103. ISSN 0268-3555

Objective We aimed to assess the evolution of an endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) practice in the management of varicose veins in a university teaching hospital vascular surgical unit, over five years. Methods This was a retrospective review of a pro... Read More

Targeted duplex ultrasound in a one-stop dialysis vascular access assessment clinic (2011)
Journal Article
Smith, G. E., Samuel, N., Khan, J., Johnson, B. F., & Chetter, I. C. (2011). Targeted duplex ultrasound in a one-stop dialysis vascular access assessment clinic. Annals of vascular surgery, 25(8), (1099-1103). doi:10.1016/j.avsg.2011.02.043. ISSN 0890-5096

BackgroundMany duplex detectable factors have been shown to correlate with upper limb arteriovenous fistula (AVF) outcomes, and many practitioners now request preoperative duplex vessel mapping routinely before AVF surgery. We report outcomes from a... Read More

Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors effect on endothelial dysfunction: a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials (2011)
Journal Article
Khan, J. A., Samuel, N., Shahin, Y., & Chetter, I. (2011). Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors effect on endothelial dysfunction: a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. Atherosclerosis, 216(1), (7-16). doi:10.1016/j.atherosclerosis.2011.02.044. ISSN 0021-9150

ObjectiveSeveral studies have assessed the effect of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) on endothelial dysfunction as measured by brachial flow-mediated vasodilatation (FMD). We conducted a meta-analysis to investigate this effect in co... Read More

Recognition of inflammatory aneurysms in abdominal aortic aneurysm screening and surveillance (2010)
Journal Article
Akomolafe, A. B., Samuel, N., Wolstenholme, S., Chetter, I. C., & Smith, G. E. (2010). Recognition of inflammatory aneurysms in abdominal aortic aneurysm screening and surveillance. Ultrasound, 18(4), 186-190. doi:10.1258/ult.2010.010035

Inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysms (IAAAs) account for 3-10% of all abdominal aortic aneurysms and are characterized by a thickened aneurysmal wall, with extensive fibrosis and adhesions. Ultrasound remains the investigation of choice for diagno... Read More
