Six cases of delayed rupture of the spleen in two stages are described. One case of occult rupture is also presented. A picture of acute anaemia was observed in the five two-stage cases, whereas the occult rupture was diagnosed as organised splenic haematoma following computerised scintiscanning, arteriography and tomography. Splenectomy was performed in(More)
A series of 34 applications of the Sengstaken-Blakemore tube to control bleeding from esophageal varices in 23 patients is described. The tube has been an effective method of emergency control of bleeding. Considerable attention has therefore been given to this methods because the operative mortality is substantially reduced if the procedure is performed(More)
The Authors have reviewed the diagnostic and therapeutical uses of central venous catheterization and its most common of introduction. Fifty-four consecutive cases of central venous catheterization via the subclavian route have been examined. The Authors have finally discussed the technique of introduction, the rate and nature of complications, the mean(More)
Clinical, radiological and endoscopic results at follow-up about 1-5 yr after surgery in a series of 62 patients subjected to Billroth I resection are compared with those in the literature. Recurrence of ulcers was observed in 8% (as opposed to 5% with the Billroth II). In addition, there was a marked reduction in the incidence of post-resection diseases,(More)
Clinical and humoral signs of postoperative stress ore partly related to temporary hyperaldosteronism. The action of an aldosterone-antagonist was therefore studied on 24 abdominal surgical patients. The aldosterone-inhibitor has shown a consistent pharmacological and clinical effect. The drug seems then to be useful and safe-with close clinical and humoral(More)
The authors have employed the collagen haemostatic felt in the control of capillary bleeding, parenchymatous haemorrhages and oozing wound haemorrhage in several surgicals cases. Collagen haemostatic felt, apart from its excellent haemostatic properties, is pliable, conforms readily to irregular contours, is soft, has excellent absorptive capacity and has(More)
An examination is made of a series of emergency operations carried out in the period 1974-78 to arrest haemorrhage due to the rupture of oesophageal varices. An account is given of the personal criteria employed in the choice of candidates and the type of surgical management. Stress is laid on the need for greater aggressivity. In addition, support is(More)
