15.  Does it Matter Whom You See?–A Fracture Clinic Audit 
INTRODUCTION
A consultant-led service for trauma in the UK has become the accepted norm. Practice in fracture clinics may vary widely between consultants and has an impact on the number of patients seen and, therefore, the time devoted to each patient.
PATIENTS AND METHODS
A total of 945 patients attending our unit's fracture clinics were analysed over a 6-week period, representing one complete cycle of our trauma system.
RESULTS
The overall discharge rate was 38% but this differed significantly between consultants. Patients re-presenting for the same complaint were evenly distributed between those discharging aggressively and those re-reviewing regularly.
CONCLUSIONS
Re-reviewing patients has a significant impact on the number of patients seen in future clinics and, therefore, the time that can be devoted to each patient, individual consultant workload and teaching of junior staff. Since the re-presentation rate between those discharging aggressively and those re-reviewing more frequently was the same, discharge protocols are recommended for common trauma conditions to standardise the process. Specialist clinics are recommended for more complex trauma cases.

24.  Multiple Antenatally Diagnosed Foregut Duplication Cysts Excised and the Value of Thoracoscopy in Diagnosing Small Concurrent Cysts 
A case report of a female neonate referred with antenatally diagnosed cystic lesions within the right hemithorax and under the left hemidiaphragm is presented to highlight the ease with which these lesions can be resected in an asymptomatic post-natal infant with minimally invasive surgery. The diagnostic and cosmetic benefits of minimally invasive surgery are also demonstrated. While excising the documented thoracic cyst, another small cyst was identified adherent to the right main bronchus. An elective laparoscopic excision of the abdominal cyst was also successful. A brief review of the complications and treatment of foregut duplication cysts is detailed.

25.  Laparoscopic Management of a Torted Appendix 
Torted appendices are a rare occurrence but should be considered when encountering a haemorrhagic congested appendix on laparoscopy. As adhesions are rarely present, laparoscopic excision is usually a feasible option.
