When compared with a matched population group, 4466 ulcer patients who had had gastric surgery between 1940 and 1960 showed no difference in the risk of death from gastric cancer in the first 20 years of follow-up but a 4.5-fold increase thereafter. In duodenal ulcer patients there was an initial decrease in risk followed by a 3.7-fold increase after 20 or(More)
This paper argues that distributed object technology can profitably be put to use in the field of computer integrated construction, and describes its use within the COMMIT 3 project. The COMMIT project aims to provide a computer integrated construction (CIC) environment that provides facilities such as versioning, notification, object rights and the(More)
The efficacy of Nd-YAG laser photocoagulation in the endoscopic control of haemorrhage from peptic ulcers was shown in a controlled trial. 527 patients admitted consecutively with acute upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage underwent urgent endoscopy. Peptic ulcers were seen in 260. All 138 ulcer patients with stigmata of recent haemorrhage (SRH) accessible to(More)
The efficacy of argon laser photocoagulation in the endoscopic control of haemorrhage from peptic ulcers was tested in a controlled trial at two centres in London. Of 330 patients consecutively admitted with acute upper gastrointestinal tract haemorrhage, 76 were seen at endoscopy to have a peptic ulcer accessible to laser therapy and stigmata of recent(More)
The relation between the severity and extent of precancerous lesions in a precancerous condition of the stomach was assessed, to find a means of reducing the endoscopic workload required for the detection of such lesions. 87 subjects who had had gastric surgery for peptic ulcer more than 20 years ago underwent gastric endoscopy and biopsy. Severity of(More)
