Journal Article
Crew, A., Karamatic Crew, V., Bagelow, L., Walser, P., Thornton, N., & Hart, J. (2020). Novel method for the measurement of erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase activity in the Yt blood group system using amperometry in conjunction with screen-printed carbon electrodes. Vox Sanguinis, 115(S1), 271-271. https://doi.org/10.1111/vox.13031

Background: The five antigens of the Yt blood group system are located on the membrane GPI‐linked erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase (AChE‐E), which is implicated in a range of clinical issues, including sleep apnoea and neurotoxin poisoning. Conformat...

The use of tissue adhesive as an adjunct to wound closure in knee arthroplasty does not reduce wound ooze (2020)
Journal Article
Khalefa, M. A., Smith, L. K., & Ahmad, R. (2020). The use of tissue adhesive as an adjunct to wound closure in knee arthroplasty does not reduce wound ooze. Knee Surgery & Related Research, 32(1), https://doi.org/10.1186/s43019-020-00073-0

Introduction Persistent wound ooze has been associated with prolonged length of hospital stay and increased risk of infection. Recently, the use of tissue adhesive after hip and knee arthroplasty has been described. We believe that knee arthroplasty...
