The renal risks associated with long-term lithium treatment are a growing concern. We have therefore studied renal function by means of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and maximum urinary concentrating capacity (Umax) in 142 of 215 patients with more than 15 years of lithium treatment in nine psychiatric clinics. Data on psychiatric and somatic diseases,(More)
n = 64) eligible for curative gastric cancer surgery were randomized to have either a total ( n = 31) or subtotal ( n = 13) gastrectomy or a jejunal S-shaped pouch ( n = 20) implanted as a gastric substitute. The quality-of-life evaluation was based on a battery of questionnaires covering both general and specific aspects of life. The patients were rated by(More)
