There is a high incidence of risk factors for incisional herniation in hospitalized veterans. Almost half the defects appear more than 12 months after celiotomy. "Buttonholing" of the rectus sheath by a sawing motion of the continuous nonabsorbable suture may be responsible for this later herniation. Suturing with synthetic, slowly absorbed monofilament may(More)
Cushing's group, operating on metastatic brain tumors in the 1920s, was the first to point out that lung cancer (usually adenocarcinoma in an upper lobe) was the most common primary tumor. Excision of a solitary metastasis could result in long-term survival. Magilligan and coworkers (J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 1976;72:690) introduced the modern era of large(More)
The operative technique presented here, placement of polypropylene mesh in the properitoneal (deep) position through an inguinal approach, has yielded very satisfactory results with few recurrences and with postoperative morbidity rates comparable to those of standard techniques that do not involve prosthetic material. The main advantage of this method over(More)
Two hundred forty-four veterans, with a mean age of 62.4 years, mainly asymptomatic (pulmonary), were admitted generally for other disease or pension evaluation and underwent lobectomy (131), segmentectomy (107), or wedge resection (6) for T1 N0 M0 lung cancer between 1966 and 1988. Conservative resection was preferred during the past decade. The average(More)
The use of a fusion component testing facility to study and establish during the ITER era the remaining scientific and technical knowledge needed by fusion Demo is considered and described in this paper. This use aims to test components in an integrated fusion nuclear environment to discover and understand the underpinning physical properties, and to(More)
