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)
This paper reports NMR measurements of the magnetic dipole moments of two high-K isomers, the 37/2 − , 51.4 m, 2740 keV state in 177 Hf and the 8 − , 5.5 h, 1142 keV state in 180 Hf by the method of on-line nuclear orientation. Also included are results on the angular distributions of γ transitions in the decay of the 177 Hf isotope. These yield high(More)
The Collinear Resonance Ionization Spectroscopy (CRIS) experiment at ISOLDE, CERN, uses laser radiation to stepwise excite and ionize an atomic beam for the purpose of ultra-sensitive detection of rare isotopes, and hyperfine-structure measurements. The technique also offers the ability to purify an ion beam that is heavily contaminated with radioactive(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)
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)
