PURPOSE To evaluate outcomes of percutaneous ablation of small renal tumors in the elderly population. PATIENTS AND METHODS Using our tumor ablation database, we searched for percutaneous ablation procedures for clinical T1a renal masses in octogenarians and nonagenarians between June 2001 and May 2012. Altogether, 105 tumors from 99 procedures among 95(More)
Loosening of the prosthesis, an important cause of clinical failure following total joint replacement, may be due to faulty implantation of the prosthesis, to trauma, or to infection in the tissues adjacent to the implant. Cases of loosening exist, however, in which the technique of implantation appears to have been satisfactory, in which there is no(More)
Certain coronary anomalies are associated with high risk features. We sought to determine the diagnostic accuracy of coronary computed tomographic angiography (CTA) in determining high-risk features, particularly intramural segments. Anomalous coronary arteries can be associated with adverse clinical events. Anomalous coronaries that course between the(More)
A double-blind, parallel group study was undertaken in general practice to compare the efficacy of and tolerability to controlled-release (CR) dihydrocodeine tablets and combination dextropropoxyphene/paracetamol tablets in patients with severe osteoarthritis of the hip(s). Eighty-six patients were randomly allocated to receive either CR dihydrocodeine (60(More)
This paper describes the development, operative technique and results of an unconstrained total elbow arthroplasty. Forty-seven elbow replacements were carried out in 44 patients between 1974 and 1982. There was a high rate of loosening in the early condylar replacements. The results in patients with post-traumatic arthritis were poor. The later design(More)
A double-blind, crossover study was undertaken in general practice to compare the efficacy and tolerability of a new controlled-release indomethacin with sustained-release diclofenac sodium in patients with osteoarthritis. Eighty-four patients were randomly allocated to receive controlled-release indomethacin tablets (75 mg) or sustained-release diclofenac(More)
A double-blind, placebo-controlled study in patients undergoing lumbar laminectomy was carried out to assess the morphine-sparing effect of a controlled-release indomethacin formulation ('Flexin Continus' tablets, 75 mg). Thirty patients were randomly allocated to receive 1 tablet of active or placebo study medication pre-operatively and their pain scores(More)
