A prospective, randomised controlled trial of surgery, surgery with adjuvant radiotherapy and surgery with adjuvant chemotherapy (5-fluorouracil, adriamycin and mitomycin C) in operable gastric cancer is described. Four hundred and thirty-six patients were randomly allocated to one of three treatment groups. With 12 months' minimum follow-up, 334 patients(More)
The expression of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in gastric malignancies has been assessed using a monoclonal antibody in an immunoperoxidase technique. Of 119 primary tumours examined, 92% reacted with the antibody. Metastases were available for 81 of the patients and 83% were CEA positive. A noteworthy observation was the detection of malignant cells in(More)
Whiplash or indirect injuries to the neck as a consequence of motor vehicle collisions are a common occurrence in which the frequency of ocular complications is largely unknown. Ophthalmic and oculomotor function was investigated in a longitudinal study of 39 cases who had their initial ophthalmological assessment within one week of the whiplash injury. Ten(More)
This is the first case report of a ruptured aortic aneurysm presenting with acute right buttock pain. The patient was an 80 year old man. A literature search revealed one report of ruptured internal iliac artery aneurysm presenting with acute hip pain and another of an unruptured aortic aneurysm presenting with chronic hip pain. Thus the present case is(More)
The ability of endoscopy to detect remnant recurrence of gastric cancer has been evaluated in patients, either as a follow-up procedure (17 patients) or after symptomatic referral (7 patients). Overall 15 out of 24 (62.5%) patients developed some form of recurrence. Fourteen out of 15 (94%) had local disease either alone or in combination with distant(More)
The disintegration of charged alkaline mercury button cells in simulated gastric fluid over a 24 h period has been studied. The integrity of the cells and the amount of mercury that can leak out of them were assessed. The cells raised the pH of the incubating solutions. Disruption was seen in five out of 18 cells tested in 0.1 mol/L hydrochloric acid and(More)
