Observational and microbiological data were collected from the patients and environment of a male general surgical ward over a period of 27 months from January 1998. Isolates of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from patients and environment were typed by antibiogram, bacteriophage and pulsed field gel electrophoresis of chromosomal DNA. In(More)
Urine cytology, plasma (P), and urinary (U) interleukin-2 (IL-2)* and IL-2 receptor (IL-2R) levels were evaluated as immunological monitoring techniques in 65 renal allograft recipients. Normal individuals showed normal urine cytology, IL-2(U) = 0, IL-2(P) = 0.4 +/- 0.1 ng/ml (mean +/- SEM) and IL-2R(P) = 318 +/- 26 U/ml. Stable transplants also showed(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of transurethral electrovaporization of the prostate (TUVP), using a grooved roller electrode, for the surgical treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). PATIENTS AND METHODS TUVP was carried out using a grooved roller electrode, pure-cutting diathermy and a standard irrigating resectoscope(More)
The attempted intravenous injection of metallic mercury resulted in multiple mercury pulmonary emboli. Few of the abnormalities of respiratory or renal function reported previously were demonstrated. In particular the isotope ventilation/perfusion scan was unhelpful in confirming the diagnosis. Extravasation of mercury at the injection site produced a(More)
We describe a young man who presented with a short history of painless haematuria. Subsequent investigations and biopsy of lesions found in his bladder at cystoscopy confirmed the diagnosis of primary lymphoma of the bladder. Computed tomography studies confirmed the disease was localised to his bladder. Unfortunately, the tumour was not eradicated by(More)
