The effects of seven days' treatment with omeprazole 5 and 10 mg daily on 24 hours gastric secretion and plasma gastrin concentrations were studied in a randomised double-blinded placebo-controlled study of six male patients with healed duodenal ulcer. Omeprazole 5 mg daily reduced mean daytime and nocturnal intragastric acidity by 31.4 and 40.1%,(More)
In a double-blind randomized study, the profile of 24-h intragastric acidity and nocturnal gastric secretion was measured in a group of patients with healed gastric ulcer on placebo and 400 mg cimetidine b.d. and 800 mg nocte. Neither cimetidine regimen significantly decreased daytime intragastric acidity, but the 800 mg nocte dose caused a significant(More)
OBJECTIVES The Asian population of our hospital catchment area represents 6.2% of the total, which is 3.2% higher than the national average, compared to the Caucasian population which comprises 70.2% and is 21.9% lower than the national average.

MATERIALS 110 infrainguinal graft studies (60 vein, 50 PTFE) in 74 patients were performed prospectively to detect graft-related stenoses. CHIEF OUTCOME MEASURES The diagnostic accuracy(More)
The quality and interpretation of operative cholangiography were assessed in 128 patients undergoing cholecystectomy. The quality of each cholangiogram was assessed by calculating a cholangiogram score according to the anatomical structure visualized. Out of a maximum possible score of 5, 26% of cholangiograms achieved a score of less than or equal to 3 and(More)
