Jim Clarke (Vascular Surgeon)

Jim Clarke is a Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust and a Honorary Senior Lecturer at University of East Anglia

Vascular surgery services focus on the diagnosis and surgical treatment of problems and illnesses affecting blood vessels, arteries and veins. The subject is a huge one and is becoming increasingly technical, as therapies are becoming more minimally invasive. The vascular surgeon treats patients with life-threatening aneurysms and with disease entities that are stroke risks, as well as patients with peripheral vascular disease. lympoedema and varicose veins. As GPs we will have a great deal of interest in what vascular surgeons manage.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable lecture, delivered with great enthusiasm. Jim takes us through an overview of his specialty, dealing with claudication, stroke and abdominal aortic aneurysm in a fascinating talk that will inform and update you on the history and current management techniques used in hospital medicine.

The AAA screening program is currently being roled out and this lecture discusses the background to its benefits.

Jim recorded 4 sections to his talk. The first 3 are here, the final section on varicose veins is available separately.

Simon DonellThe Management of Anterior Knee Pain
Simon Donell (Consultant Orthopedic Surgeon)

Simon Donell is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and the lead for research in the Department of Orthopaedics at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. He holds an honorary Professorship with the Medical School at the University of East Anglia. His clinical practice is focussed on the knee, both knee replacements, including unicompartmental and patello-femoral, as well as arthroscopy and ligament work. Patellar instability and patellar syndromes are a special interest.

Professor Donell's lecture on anterior knee pain is a fascinating insight into a clinical subject that some would call an unsolved medical mystery.

You might need to watch this lecture more than once, as it is of interest on more than one level. Not only as an insight into a very interesting clinical problem, but also in seeing an orthopaedic surgeon travel " way out of his comfort zone".

Kevin SargenRectal Bleeding
Kevin Sargen (Colorectal Surgeon)

Kevin Sargen is a Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgeon for benign and malignant disease and is Associate Medical Director for General Surgery. This lecture of his discusses the problem of rectal bleeding, as caused by non-cancerous anorectal pathology.

As GPs we are constantly dealing with patients who have rectal bleeding, and this lecture is of great help in delineating the important facts we need to know. As Kevin points out, it is the history we take that is most important as it points us in the direction of what to do next, as the term "rectal bleed" is actually poorly defined. This lecture is a wealth of succinct facts and useful information, and a regular addition to any GPs portfolio.
