The aim is to evaluate the topography and the severity of gastritis among FDR of GC patients. DESIGN A total of 989 subjects who were FDR of GC patients, ages 40-65 years underwent gastroscopies.

A landfill is built up in cells with each cell filled in layers. Layers are covered with soil, typically 200 to 300mm thick as a temporary measure to maintain sanitary conditions. A thicker cover, typical 500mm, would be placed over a completed cell. Previous researchers have measured O 2 concentrations at shallow depth beneath soil covers as well as high(More)

In lower limb surgery, the sural flap is based on this principle and this flap is becoming increasingly popular. The distally based superficial sural artery flap, first described as a(More)
