AIM Concerns exist regarding laparoscopic rectal cancer surgery due to increased rates of open conversion, complications and circumferential resection margin positivity. This study reports medium-term results from consecutive unselected cases in a single surgeon series. METHOD The results of laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer(More)
AIM Stapled transanal rectal resection (STARR) is an increasingly accepted treatment for obstructed defaecation syndrome (ODS) associated with internal rectal prolapse (IRP) and rectocoele. The aim of this study is to evaluate the medium to long-term outcomes of STARR for ODS. METHOD The intermediate-term results of STARR used over a 9-year period were(More)
AIM The safety and short-term outcome of laparoscopic surgery for recurrent ileocolic Crohn's disease was compared with the outcome following primary resection. METHOD Between June 2002 and June 2010, 59 consecutive unselected patients (30 of whom had recurrent disease) underwent laparoscopic ileocolic resection. Four primary resections and one revision(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was performed to assess the accuracy of colonoscopic endoanal ultrasound scanning (EUS) in the selection of patients with rectal neoplasia suitable for local excision by transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM). Our policy is to offer TEM to patients with premalignant (T0) lesions or with T1 tumours that have early disease. PATIENTS(More)
INTRODUCTION Suspected testicular torsion (TT) is a surgical emergency, usually requiring urgent scrotal exploration. Provision of urology on-call cover varies widely between hospitals and often falls under the remit of the general surgical team. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the management of suspected TT differed between urology(More)
OBJECTIVES To meet the introduction of the two-week wait (TWW) rule for patients with suspected colorectal cancer, a fast-track barium enema (FTBE) service was set up. This study was conducted to evaluate the success of this approach in preparation for meeting the forthcoming targets on waiting times to treatment from referral and diagnosis. METHODS All(More)
We analyze the implications for monetary policy when deficient aggregate demand can cause a permanent loss in potential output, a phenomenon termed as output hysteresis. We incorporate Schumpeterian endogenous growth into a business cycle model with nominal rigidities. In the model, incomplete stabilization of a temporary shortfall in demand reduces the(More)
Introduction The aim of this study was to establish the prevalence of pelvic floor symptoms in women referred to a colorectal two-week wait (2WW) clinic with suspected colorectal cancer. Methods A questionnaire assessing faecal incontinence (FI) (Wexner score) and obstructed defecation syndrome (ODS) (Renzi score) was offered to 98 consecutive female(More)
