Recent advances in treatment of haemodialysis.
Abstract Haemodialysis remains the most widely used treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease. Despite the progress that has occurred in the treatment of end-stage renal disease over the last six decades, there has been a failure to translate this into the desired clinical benefits, with morbidity and mortality rates among patients on haemodialysis remaining unacceptably high. Recently, however, there have been expectations that the significant advances that took place over the last few years may result in improved outcomes. New medications for the treatment of anaemia and secondary hyperparathyroidism, ...

Five thousand years of minimal access surgery: 1850 to 1990: Technological developments.
Abstract SummaryThis is the second of a three-part series that charts the history of minimal access surgery from antiquity to current times. Although rapid developments in laparoscopic and robotic surgery have transformed surgical care over the last 30 years, our predecessors made significant advances in their time which set the principles for modern practice. Part I of this series described how ancient medical practitioners developed simple instruments, from metal or wood, for viewing body cavities. Improvements in the use of metal, glass and lighting allowed for inspection of deeper parts of the body. This secon...

Five thousand years of minimal access surgery: 1990-present: organisational issues and the rise of the robots.
Abstract The last 30 years have seen a revolution in the provision of minimal access surgery for many conditions, and technological advances are increasing exponentially. Many instruments are superseded by improved versions before the NHS and publicly funded health services can offer widespread coverage. Although we tend to think of minimal access surgery as a modern concept, Parts I and II of this series have shown that there is a 5000-year history to this specialty and our predecessors laid down many principles which still apply today. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, minimal access surgery was driven f...

Five thousand years of minimal access surgery: 3000BC to 1850: early instruments for viewing body cavities.
Abstract SummarySurgeons and their patients recognise that one of the major advances in surgical technique over the last 20 years has been the growth of minimal access surgery by means of laparoscopic and robotic approaches. Partnerships with industry have facilitated the development of advanced technical instruments, light sources, recording devices and optics which are almost out of date by the time they are introduced to surgical practice. However, lest we think that technological innovation is entirely a modern concept, we should remember that our predecessors were masters of their craft and able to apply new ...

Impact of COVID-19 on accident and emergency attendances and emergency and planned hospital admissions in Scotland: an interrupted time-series analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: COVID-19 has had a profoundly disruptive impact on hospital-based care across National Health Service Scotland. This has likely led to an adverse effect on non-COVID-19-related illnesses, increasing the possibility of potentially avoidable morbidity and mortality.
