Hip surgery for NI’s oldest lady - 106 year old Mrs Madge Martin with Mr Bruce Watson, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon  who said “It was a privilege to fix the hip fracture for this wonderful lady and get her back on her feet in preparation for her 107th birthday on 17th April.  Picture courtesy of Southern Trust.

We are delighted to have reached just over half of our target recruitment numbers for the WAX study at the Belfast Trust site.   This research is happening in several centres in the UK to find out whether patients who have had surgery for an ankle fracture should walk on their operated leg following surgery or wait 6 weeks before putting weight through their foot. 

If you or someone your know has had a recent injury and want some information,  check out the Fracture NI website for the Belfast Trust Fracture Department based at the Royal Victoria Hospital. The website is full of useful information and resources to help patients with broken bones. http://fractureni.com

Thursday 11th March is World Kidney Day. An annual campaign to help raise awareness of kidneys and show the suffering caused when they don’t work properly.  Last year we published in the Clinical Kidney Journal on the incidence of acute kidney injury following hip and knee replacement.

Our research would not be possible without the important donations we receive throughout the year. So please help us further our work by sending a donation today.
