Patients in whom diversion is not permanent, who desire stoma closure, and who have an acceptable surgical risk should undergo re-establishment of intestinal continuity. Asymptomatic, high-risk surgical candidates need only undergo periodic, regular(More)
Velocity and density measured in a well are crucial for synthetic seismic generation which is, in turn, a key to interpreting real seismic amplitude in terms of lithology, porosity and fluid content. Investigations made in the water wells usually consist of spontaneous potential, resistivity long and short normal, point resistivity and gamma ray logs. The(More)
Carcinoma of the anus is a rare malignancy that usually is diagnosed at an advanced stage, in spite of being easily visible and accessible. Its treatment has evolved from being mainly surgical to one consisting of chemotherapy (with fluorouracil and mitomycin) and radiation (megavoltage linear accelerator therapy delivering between 40 to 50 Gy).
