The purpose of this study was to define the measurement properties and clinical validity of the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) questionnaire module to assess health-related quality of life (HRQL) in gastric cancer. The EORTC gastric cancer module, QLQ-STO 22, was administered with the QLQ-C30, core questionnaire, to 219(More)
Quality of life (QOL) assessment requires clinically relevant questionnaires that yield accurate data. This study defined measurement properties and the clinical validity of the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) questionnaire module to assess QOL in oesophageal cancer. The oesophageal module the QLQ-OES24 and core(More)
Quality of life (QL) is an important outcome in clinical trials in oncology. There is currently no valid international QL measure for gastric cancer. This paper describes the development of a QL module for gastric cancer to supplement the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of life (QLQ-C30) questionnaire. Phases I to(More)
Among the most widely used instruments to assess quality of life (QOL) in patients with cancer are the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer core questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30) and the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy, cancer instrument (FACT-G). This study compared these approaches in patients who had undergone(More)
Twenty-three preserved cadaver upper limbs were dissected to show the level of the nerve supply to flexor carpi radialis and the extent of exposure of a new approach to the flexor surface of the distal radius. We describe a new approach to the flexor surface of the distal radius in which both the radial artery and the median nerve are protected by muscles(More)
Accurate assessment of health-related quality of life in patients with upper gastrointestinal cancers is essential to help determine treatment strategies. Questionnaires may be used to screen for physical and psychosocial morbidity, to evaluate new therapies and there is accumulating evidence to suggest that quality of life scores have prognostic value.(More)
for an arbitrary original polygon P . Further, no other relations Pn_p = 0 (p7*pi or p2 • or £jfc) are satisfied by P ' if P remains general ( P ' has no higher than the &th degree of regularity). This is also seen from (16'), where 0(co) ^ 0 , Rn-P^0 (since P is general) ; therefore P ' n _ ^ 0 . In fact, no relations of any kind besides (18) are satisfied(More)
Riemann in his Habilitations Schrift of 1854 suggested the notion of ^-dimensional space (where n is a natural number) as an extension of the notion of three-dimensional euclidean space. Hubert extended the notion still further by defining a space of a countably infinite number of dimensions. Fréchetf in 1908 defined two other spaces of countably many(More)
