BACKGROUND It has been suggested that a history of subfertility is associated with increased obstetric and perinatal risks. It is unclear if the cause is inherent characteristics in the women or the fertility treatment. OBJECTIVES To compare the obstetric and perinatal risks of singleton pregnancies in women with a history of subfertility in comparison(More)
BACKGROUND There are limited data on surgical outcomes in gynaecological oncology. We report on predictors of complications in a multicentre prospective study. METHODS Data on surgical procedures and resulting complications were contemporaneously recorded on consented patients in 10 participating UK gynaecological cancer centres. Patients were sent(More)
Limited data are available on the electrocardiogram and ambulatory electrocardiogram recording (Holter) in children infected with the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). The purpose of this study was to estimate the prevalence and cumulative incidence of rhythm and conduction abnormalities in HIV-1-infected children. Electrocardiograms and Holter(More)
Immunoreactive inhibin-like material (ILM) was measured by radioimmunoassay (RIA) in serum and gastric juice samples of 23 fasting normal men, 27 men with chronic superficial gastritis (CSG), and 21 men with carcinoma of stomach (5 for gastric analysis). Serum ILM levels in carcinoma of stomach patients (367 +/- 55.5 ng ml-1) were significantly higher than(More)
Immunoreactive inhibin-like material (ILM) was measured by radioimmunoassay in serum and gastric juice samples of 23 fasting normal men and 23 men with duodenal ulcers (DU). Concentrations of ILM in gastric juice and serum of patients with DU were significantly higher than those in normal men (P less than 0.01). A strong positive correlation (r = 0.894) was(More)

BACKGROUND Most studies use hospital data to calculate postoperative complication rates (PCRs). We report on improving PCR estimates through use of patient-reporting. METHODS A prospective cohort study of major surgery performed at 10 UK gynaecological cancer centres was undertaken. Hospitals entered the data contemporaneously into an online database.(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the impact of risk-adjustment on surgical complication rates (CRs) for benchmarking gynaecological oncology centres. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Ten UK accredited gynaecological oncology centres. POPULATION Women undergoing major surgery on a gynaecological oncology operating list. METHODS Patient co-morbidity,(More)
