OBJECTIVE Colonic transit studies are used to diagnose slow transit constipation (STC) and to evaluate segmental colonic transit before segmental or subtotal colectomy. The aim of the study was to compare a single X-ray radio-opaque marker method with a scintigraphic technique to assess total and segmental colonic transit in patients with STC. METHOD(More)
OBJECTIVE Subtotal colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis for slow transit constipation has several side-effects. The motor abnormality in some patients may be segmental which could motivate a limited resection of the colon. Therefore a diagnostic tool to identify a segmental colonic motor dysfunction is needed. The aim of this study was to evaluate a(More)
BACKGROUND The standard surgical treatment for slow-transit constipation (STC) is subtotal colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis. A segmental resection may serve the same purpose, but with a reduced risk of side-effects such as diarrhoea or incontinence. The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional results following segmental resection in a(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This report contains the mature five-year data from the Swedish ARTSCAN trial including information on the influence of p16 positivity (p16+) for oropharyngeal cancers. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with previously untreated squamous cell carcinoma without distant metastases of the oral cavity, oropharynx, larynx (except T1-2, N0(More)
Centralized control and coordination of the connections in a wireless network is not possible in practice. To keep the delay from measurement instants to actuating the decisions, distributed control is required. This paper focuses on the uplink (from mobiles to base stations) and discusses distributing the decision of when and when not to transmit data(More)
Cellular mobile systems designed to handle multimedia services are currently being developed. The primary goal for any mobile system is to provide a satisfactory quality of service, both to operators and customers. Providing good quality of service while maintaining system stability requires accurate knowledge of the system load. In particular, it is(More)
In wireless network uplink communications, there is a tradeoff between transmission coordination to avoid overload situations, and distributed transmission decisions to adapt to fast channel variations. Here, uplink transmission timing (UTT) is proposed as a scheme to allow some load control support, while transmitting mainly when the channel is favorable.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate anorectal physiology in relation to clinically defined subgroups of patients with idiopathic constipation and to analyse relationships between anorectal physiology and rectal evacuation. SUBJECTS AND METHODS One hundred consecutive patients with idiopathic constipation were clinically categorized as slow(More)
