Genistein (GT) is an isoflavone from Leguminosae and has received much attention as a phytoestrogen. Genistin is a glycoside form of GT (genistein-7-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside, GT-glu) is mainly found in soy-derived foods. In this study, we examined the pharmacokinetic properties and bioavailability of GT in rats and compared with those of GT-glu. In order to(More)
A review of the mammograms of 871 patients with breast cancer from a symptomatic clinic performed at the General Hospital, Birmingham between 1980 and 1988 revealed an overall false negative rate of 8.6%. There has been a steady fall in the number of cancers missed per year from the commencement of review, and this reduction has been more consistent with(More)
A retrospective analysis of the effect of oral and intravenous hyoscine N butylbromide (Buscopan) on the dimensions of the large bowel during double contrast barium enema (DCBE) examination was made and compared with corresponding measurements without Buscopan. It was found that 20 mg oral Buscopan did not alter colonic dimensions but 20 mg Buscopan(More)
It is not known why the Angelchik prosthesis prevents gastro-oesophageal reflux. A review of 53 barium meal examinations in 39 patients with the prosthesis showed that in 43 examinations the prosthesis was below the diaphragm. In 38 of these a small knuckle of stomach had herniated through the prosthetic ring alongside the oesophagus, forming a small(More)
The complications and results of rectal anastomoses carried out with the end-to-end anastomosis (EEA) stapling instrument on 50 patients by 5 consultant surgeons are recorded. There was a clinical leakage rate of 6% and a radiological leakage rate of 20% assessed by water-soluble contrast enema. The technique has advantages compared with hand-suture by(More)
The radial head-capitellum (RHC) view was performed in 125 patients following acute elbow trauma in which an elbow fat-pad effusion was visible on the standard antero-posterior and lateral projections. Seventy-four fractures were identified of which 63 (85%) involved the radial head. In only one case (1%) did the RHC view reveal a radial head fracture not(More)
Peroperative frozen sections and cytological material have been obtained in 39 consecutive gastro-oesophageal resections between October 1978 and February 1980. Material from the proximal edge of the resected specimen was unreliable because of 3 false positive cytology results and 1 false positive frozen section report. Frozen section (no errors) was shown(More)
Thirty-seven patients who had had either a colonoscopy or a selective mesenteric angiogram while being investigated for severe or persistent gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin were reviewed. Failure to make a prompt diagnosis was partly responsible for the 16% hospital mortality in the series. Colonoscopy was diagnostic on 6 out of 38 examinations(More)
