This thesis consisted of three investigations: a study comparing the efficacy of compression bandaging and single use negative pressure wound therapy to compression bandaging alone in the treatment of venous leg ulcers, an investigation of the sub-bandage pressures beneath compression therapy and single use negative pressure wound therapy and an exploration of the differences in skin morphology and protein expression between healthy skin and that affected by chronic venous insufficiency.

Most individuals with treated blood pressures above target receive only one or two antihypertensive drug classesCampbell, D.; Mcgrady, M.; Prior, D.; Coller, J.; Boffa, U.; Shiel, L.; Liew, D.; Wolfe, R.; Stewart, S.; Reid, Christopher; Krum, H. (2013)Background: A significant proportion of individuals taking antihypertensive therapies fail to achieve blood pressures <140/90mmHg. In order to develop strategies for improved treatment of blood pressure, we examined the ...
Quarter-dose quadruple combination therapy for initial treatment of hypertension: placebo-controlled, crossover, randomised trial and systematic reviewChow, C.; Thakkar, J.; Bennett, A.; Hillis, G.; Burke, M.; Usherwood, T.; Vo, K.; Rogers, K.; Atkins, E.; Webster, R.; Chou, M.; Dehbi, H.; Salam, A.; Patel, A.; Neal, B.; Peiris, D.; Krum, H.; Chalmers, J.; Nelson, M.; Reid, Christopher; Woodward, M.; Hilmer, S.; Thom, S.; Rodgers, A. (2017)Â© 2017 Elsevier Ltd Background Globally, most patients with hypertension are treated with monotherapy, and control rates are poor because monotherapy only reduces blood pressure by around 9/5 mm Hg on average.

Efficacy and Safety of Quarter-Dose Blood Pressure-Lowering Agents: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled TrialsBennett, A.; Chow, C.; Chou, M.; Dehbi, H.; Webster, R.; Salam, A.; Patel, A.; Neal, B.; Peiris, D.; Thakkar, J.; Chalmers, J.; Nelson, M.; Reid, Christopher; Hillis, G.; Woodward, M.; Hilmer, S.; Usherwood, T.; Thom, S.; Rodgers, A. (2017)There is a critical need for blood pressure-lowering strategies that have greater efficacy and minimal side effects. Low-dose combinations hold promise in this regard, but there are few data on very-low-dose therapy. We, ...
