    in which conditions it's best to go for non closure of the abdomen after laparotomy? What the wound is specifically called and how it eventually heals?
    Secondary intention? The wound is left open and the edges will eventualy come together over a period of a couple of weeks by the granulation process.

    I have seen a woun left like this after dehiscence. It was such a mess that there was nowhere to put sutures in. It healed quite nicely over a month or so.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

    I can't believe that I'm the first to surface on this fine January morn... Ahem, afternoon!

    ~Renal et Crazy - tried texting both of you last night, but neither message would send. Are you on the same network, or have you given up mobile connectivity for New Year? Anyway - hope it's a good un!

    We brought WiiFit in order to try to motivate some kind of health kick - back fired though. BMI of 22 (thought it would be much more than that - looks like 2 months of killer non-ward based firms and blinking tower blocks has worked wonders!) and my WiiFit age is 29 (Whoop!)! Looks like I can pig out and age this year! I'm guessing come March I'll have a BMI of 30, have aged 10 years and be in deep depression!

    Anyway! Hope all is well with all!

    Happy New Year guys! Just think, this time next year a scary number of us will be doctors. :eek:

    I had a great party last night, but getting up at 9 to catch the train back to the bf's parents for lunch was NOT fun.

    I have 80 references for my 2600 word SSM, is that too many?

    Originally I was meant to have a patient history at the start.... I don't as yet and don't think it'd really add anything to it... so can I just leave it out?

    And do I have to print it with double line spacing or anything?

    Thanks..x

    p.s. I hate referencing

    No - so long as they are not references for the sake of references...

    When I did SSM3a, mine was marked by Prof Kumar, who limited us to 20 references - I think I had near on 40, but justified them in my viva so still got an A. I've never used so few references in my life, but it does make you think more abnout what you're writing and the relative weighting of the information you are referencing.

    It's all right Elles - psychiatry is all made up anyway.

    Anyone know if the second album's any good? Am wondering if I should get it... (I bought the first album and there were a few songs I liked but also quite a few songs I didn't like... )

    The second album is basically their live show (and their DVD) in audio format, with an extra song or two added for good measure. They are pretty good, but mostly quite short 'snippets'.

    The paracetamoxifrusebendromycin lanyards are awesome though.
