Cardiovascular and musculoskeletal response to supervised exercise in patients with intermittent claudication (PREDICT) (2018)
Journal Article
Harwood, A. E., Totty, J. P., Pymer, S., Huang, C., Hitchman, L., Carradice, D., …Chetter, I. C. (in press). Cardiovascular and musculoskeletal response to supervised exercise in patients with intermittent claudication (PREDICT). Journal of vascular surgery, doi:10.1016/j.jvs.2018.10.065

Objective Intermittent claudication occurs in 20 % of the population over 70 and treatment includes a supervised exercise programme (SEP). Whilst there is evidence demonstrating walking improvements following a SEP there is conflicting data on the ph... Read More

Dialkylcarbamoyl chloride (DACC)-coated dressings in the management and prevention of wound infection: A systematic review (2017)
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

The effect of aortic morphology on peri-operative mortality of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (2015)
Journal Article
Baker, S., Brown, J., Chetter, I., Gordon, A., Hatfield, J., Hughes, C., …Zheng, T. (2015). The effect of aortic morphology on peri-operative mortality of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. European Heart Journal, 36(21), 1328-1334. doi:10.1093/eurheartj/ehu521

Aims To investigate whether aneurysm shape and extent, which indicate whether a patient with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (rAAA) is eligible for endovascular repair (EVAR), influence the outcome of both EVAR and open surgical repair. Methods an... 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

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

Saphenopopliteal ligation and stripping of small saphenous vein: does extended stripping provide better results? (2012)
Journal Article
Carradice, D., Mazari, F. A. K., Samuel, N., Chetter, I., Smith, G. E., & Wallace, T. (2012). Saphenopopliteal ligation and stripping of small saphenous vein: does extended stripping provide better results?. Phlebology, 27(8), 390-397. doi:10.1258/phleb.2011.011063

Objective Saphenopopliteal ligation (SPL) for venous insufficiency is a challenging procedure, with mixed results being reported. The role of stripping of the small saphenous vein (SSV) is contentious. This prospective observational study aimed to as... Read More

Junction jump sign: a useful adjunct to the precise positioning of the catheter tip during endovenous thermal ablation (2011)
Journal Article
Smith, G. E., Samuel, N., Shahin, Y., Chetter, I. C., Smith, G., & Wallace, T. (2011). Junction jump sign: a useful adjunct to the precise positioning of the catheter tip during endovenous thermal ablation. Ultrasound, 19(2), 97-98. doi:10.1258/ult.2011.011006

Duplex ultrasound imaging plays a key role in the increasingly popular, minimally invasive endothermal treatment of varicose veins. Accurate placement of the echodense tip of endovenous catheter distal to the site of junctional incompetence is by far... Read More
