Many different patterns of incision have been described, for surgical access in Dupuytren's fasciectomy. The incision should minimise the risk of flap necrosis, provide access to the neurovascular bundles and diseased tissue and avoid secondary scar contracture.
Beta (ß) blockers are indicated for use in coronary artery disease (CAD).

We report an unusual case of a traumatic neuroma growing through an old burn scar. A 39-year-old gentleman sustained a 15% flame burn to his left upper limb and chest 34 years ago. He presented to us with a tender lump on his left ante-cubital fossa.
Although vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) is a well-established technique in other surgical specialties, its use has not been established in the foot and ankle. The aims of this study were to determine if vacuum-assisted closure therapy (VAC) helps assist closure in diabetic foot ulcers and wounds secondary to peripheral vascular disease
