Journal Article
Avery, G., Waudby, P., Monson, J. R. T., Maslekar, S., & Duthie, G. S. (2009). Quality assurance in flexible sigmoidoscopy: Medical and nonmedical endoscopists. Surgical Endoscopy, 24(1), 89-93. doi:10.1007/s00464-009-0553-9

Purpose: The clinical assessment of position in colon and hence completion during flexible sigmoidoscopy (FS) is believed to be inaccurate. The technique of applying endomucosal clips with follow-up X-ray has previously been used for establishing com... Read More

Journal Article
Maslekar, S., Hughes, M., Gardiner, A., Monson, J. R. T., & Duthie, G. S. (2010). Patient satisfaction with lower gastrointestinal endoscopy: doctors, nurse and nonmedical endoscopists. Colorectal disease, 12(10), 1033-1038. doi:10.1111/j.1463-1318.2009.01989.x

Aim Assessment of patient satisfaction with lower gastrointestinal endoscopy (LGE) comprising colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy is gaining increasing importance. We have now trained non healthcare professionals such as nonmedical endoscopists (N... Read More

Quality assurance in colonoscopy: role of endomucosal clips (2009)
Journal Article
Maslekar, S., Avery, G., & Duthie, G. S. (2010). Quality assurance in colonoscopy: role of endomucosal clips. Colorectal Disease, 12(7), (651-656). doi:10.1111/j.1463-1318.2009.01874.x. ISSN 1462-8910

Objective Quality assurance in colonoscopy is important, and subjective assessment of completion based on endoscopic signs can be inaccurate leading to missed lesions. We aimed to determine the technique of endomucosal clips with follow-up X-rays in... Read More

Journal Article
Maslekar, S., Gardiner, A., Hughes, M., Culbert, B., & Duthie, G. S. (2009). Randomized clinical trial of Entonox ® versus midazolam-fentanyl sedation for colonoscopy. British journal of surgery : BJS, 96(4), (361-368). doi:10.1002/bjs.6467. ISSN 0007-1323

Background: Intravenous sedation for colonoscopy is associated with cardiorespiratory complications and delayed recovery. The aim of this randomized clinical trial was to compare the efficacy of Entonox ® (50 per cent nitrous oxide and 50 per cent o... Read More

Anterior anal sphincter repair for fecal incontinence: Good longterm results are possible (2006)
Journal Article
Maslekar, S., Gardiner, A. B., & Duthie, G. S. (2007). Anterior anal sphincter repair for fecal incontinence: Good longterm results are possible. Journal of The American College of Surgeons, 204(1), (40-46). doi:10.1016/j.jamcollsurg.2006.10.008. ISSN 1072-7515

Background: Anterior anal sphincter repair (ASR) is standard treatment for fecal incontinence resulting from an obstetrically damaged anal sphincter. Longterm results of repair have generally been shown to be poor. This review of single-unit series a... Read More
