Chronic pain after laparoscopic and open mesh repair of groin hernia
The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of chronic pain or discomfort after laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair and open mesh repair of groin hernia, and to assess the impactExpand
Laparoscopic total extraperitoneal hernia repair: mesh fixation is unnecessary.
TLDR
A series of 89 total extraperitoneal laparoscopic repairs in 80 consecutive patients using no means of mechanical or adhesive mesh fixation, irrespective of the size of the hernial defect are reported. Expand
Randomized clinical trial of perioperative systemic warming in major elective abdominal surgery
TLDR
This study aimed to examine the effects of additional perioperative systemic warming on postoperative morbidity in patients with knownHypothermia in the operating theatre. Expand
Hidradenitis suppurativa: evidence for an endocrine abnormality
TLDR
A functional disorder of the hypothalamopituitary axis was found in patients with hidradenitis when compared with 9 controls, which may reflect a disturbance of feedback signals from peripheral hormones, rather than a primary dysfunction of the control of specific anterior pituitary cells. Expand
Anxiety, self-concept, and personal and social adjustments in children with sickle cell anemia.
TLDR
An unexpected finding of the study was the observation that the anxiety scores were significantly lower in the study group than those in the comparison group. Expand
VESICULAR SYSTEMCARRIER FOR DRUG DELIVERY
Laparoscopic or Lichtenstein repair for recurrent inguinal hernia: one unit's experience.
TLDR
In this unit, laparoscopic repair was associated with fewer complications and a significantly shorter duration of post-operative analgesia than Lichtenstein repair for recurrent inguinal hernia. Expand
Altered responses of prolactin, luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone secretion to thyrotrophin releasing hormone/gonadotrophin releasing hormone stimulation in cyclical mastalgia
TLDR
An alteration in lactotroph and gonadotroph function in patients with cyclical mastalgia is demonstrated, although it is unknown at present whether this represents an appropriate cellular response to altered central or peripheral signals. Expand
PREDICTION OF RESPONSE TO ENDOCRINE THERAPY IN PRONOUNCED CYCLICAL MASTALGIA USING DYNAMIC TESTS OF PROLACTIN RELEASE
TLDR
It is indicated that dynamic tests of prolactin release in cyclical mastalgia may be useful in predicting the subsequent satisfactory response to endocrine therapy if a high peak prolactIn release is induced. Expand
Risk of bleeding and adverse outcomes predicted by thromboelastography platelet mapping in patients taking clopidogrel within 7 days of non‐cardiac surgery
TLDR
Thromboelastography platelet mapping (TEG‐PM) can be used to measure the percentage adenosine 5′‐diphosphate platelet receptor inhibition (ADP‐PRI) by clopidogrel in patients with non‐cardiac surgery failure. Expand
