Although positive oral contrast media are normally used, there is increasing interest in using negative agents such as water and less commonly fat density products. The aim of this study was to compare a positive oral contrast medium, water, and a(More)

The implant may be drilled and pegged, if required, after adequate vascularisation of the implant has occurred. In this study we evaluated the(More)
21 , as observed during SERIES. Trapping efficiency is thought to be determined by the characteristics of sinking particles, trap design and upper-ocean hydrodynamics 19. The location of the 'In' traps relative to the patch was monitored using a logging fluorometer 10 m subsurface on the surface-tethered array. Traps remained near the patch centre; on day(More)
A previously fit 66-year-old man presented with a 2 weeks' history of malaise, fever and vomiting which led to a septicaemic illness. Yersinia enterocolitica biotype 2 serotype O9 was isolated from the patient's blood and from raw goats' milk remaining in a bottle after the patient had consumed some of the contents. He also produced antibodies to this(More)

We present a case where reluctance to expose the fetus to radiation could have resulted in a(More)
