PURPOSE Timely administration of adjuvant chemotherapy following colorectal resection is associated with improved outcome. We aim to assess the factors which are associated with delay to adjuvant chemotherapy in patients who underwent colorectal resection as part of an enhanced recovery protocol. METHOD A univariate and multivariate analysis of patient(More)
Excited states in the N ¼ 102 isotones 166 Gd and 164 Sm have been observed following isomeric decay for the first time at RIBF, RIKEN. The half-lives of the isomeric states have been measured to be 950(60) and 600(140) ns for 166 Gd and 164 Sm, respectively. Based on the decay patterns and potential energy surface calculations, including β 6 deformation, a(More)
116 Ru and 118 Ru have been studied via β-delayed γ-ray spectroscopy of nuclei produced in fragmentation reactions at the Radioactive Ion-Beam Factory (RIBF) facility. Level schemes with positive-parity states up to spin J = 6 have been constructed. The results have been discussed in terms of the interacting boson model, the algebraic collective model, and(More)
The CRIS setup at CERN-ISOLDE is a laser spectroscopy experiment dedicated to the high-resolution study of the spin, hyperfine structure and isotope shift of radioactive nuclei with low production rates (a few per second). It combines the Doppler-free resolution of the in-flight collinear geometry with the high detection efficiency of resonant ionisation. A(More)
Gastric cancer is a common malignancy with high recurrence rates following surgical resection. A common site of disease recurrence is the peritoneum. We report the case of a 73-year-old female who had previously undergone a total gastrectomy for gastric cancer who presented acutely with features classical of acute appendicitis and underwent open(More)
A new decay-spectroscopy station (DSS) has been developed to be coupled to the collinear resonance ionization spectroscopy (CRIS) beam line at CERN-ISOLDE. The system uses a rotatable wheel with ten 20 µg/cm 2 carbon foils as beam implantation sites for the efficient measurement of charged decay products. Silicon detectors are placed on either side of the(More)
