Research

  • Professor Williams’ research focuses on his clinical interests as a practising vascular surgeon. His clinical research can be divided into three main areas:
  • The impact of dedicated service provision on the rates of limb loss in patients with diabetes, patients with lower limb wounds and kidney failure. This subject area already has generated two papers and is ongoing.
  • Determining peri-operative cardiac ischaemia in patients with vascular disease using Troponin T. This study which is attempting to quantify cardiac risk in vascular patients, is in the final stages of data collection and will require statistical analysis.
  • Impact of teaching on venous thrombo-prophylaxis on junior doctor clinical performance. As This aspect of service provision and the role of post-graduate medical education for junior doctors are important healthcare issues. One presentation at international level has resulted from this work.
