Journal Article
Carradice, D., Wallace, T., Gohil, R., & Chetter, I. (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. https://doi.org/10.1097/sla.0000000000000541

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 about A comparison of the effectiveness of treating those with and without the complications of superficial venous insufficiency.

Electrical stimulation vs. standard care for chronic ulcer healing: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials (2014)
Journal Article
Barnes, R., Shahin, Y., Gohil, R., & Chetter, I. (2014). Electrical stimulation vs. standard care for chronic ulcer healing: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. European Journal of Clinical Investigation, 44(4), 429-440. https://doi.org/10.1111/eci.12244

Background We conducted a systematic review to investigate the effect of electrical stimulation on ulcer healing compared to usual treatment and/or sham stimulation. This systematic review also aimed to investigate the effect of different types of...

Computerized dynamic posturography for postural control assessment in patients with intermittent claudication. (2013)
Journal Article
Vanicek, N., King, S. A., Gohil, R., Chetter, I. C., & Coughlin, P. A. (2013). Computerized dynamic posturography for postural control assessment in patients with intermittent claudication. Journal of Visualized Experiments, https://doi.org/10.3791/51077

Computerized dynamic posturography with the EquiTest is an objective technique for measuring postural strategies under challenging static and dynamic conditions. As part of a diagnostic assessment, the early detection of postural deficits is importan...

Supervised exercise program improves aerobic fitness in patients awaiting abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (2013)
Journal Article
Barakat, H. M., Shahin, Y., Barnes, R., Gohil, R., Souroullas, P., Khan, J., …Chetter, I. C. (2014). Supervised exercise program improves aerobic fitness in patients awaiting abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Annals of vascular surgery, 28(1), 74-79. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.avsg.2013.09.001

Background Aerobic fitness is an important predictor of postoperative outcome in major surgery. In this study, we assess the effects of a period of preoperative exercise on aerobic fitness as measured by cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in pa...
