BACKGROUND While endovascular (ENDO) therapy has increasingly become the initial intervention of choice to treat lower extremity peripheral arterial disease, reported outcomes for ENDO in patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) and diabetes have been reported to be inferior compared to open bypass surgery (OPEN). Objective data assessing the hemodynamic(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to quantify the impact of an integrated diabetic foot surgical service on outcomes and changes in surgical volume and focus. METHODS We abstracted registry data from 48 consecutive months at a single institution, evaluating all patients with diabetic foot complications requiring surgery or vascular intervention, and compared(More)
OBJECTIVE Adenocarcinoma around the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) is increasing in incidence, and is frequently associated with areas of macroscopic or microscopic intestinal metaplasia (IM). The aim of this study was to define the incidence and type of metaplastic changes in the cardia and at the EGJ in symptomatic patients in whom there was no endoscopic(More)
OBJECTIVE A study of two cases of a rare variant of benign schwannoma showing areas mimicking neuroblastoma/peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumour (PNET). METHODS Sections of formalin fixed, paraffin embedded specimens were studied by tinctorial stains and immunohistochemistry, and the tissue retrieved from formalin was examined by electronmicroscopy(More)
A case of gastric polyposis caused by multiple carcinoids with concurrent gastric carcinoma is reported in a 70 year old woman with severe atrophic gastritis and intestinal metaplasia. On microscopic examination, the carcinoids and gastric carcinoma arose separately thus representing "double primaries". Long-standing hypergastrinaemia probably plays a(More)
Trans-catheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) is an endovascular treatment for critical aortic stenosis. An early “learning curve” is important drawback of TAVI that can dramatically alter patient safety and hospital costs. There is paucity of data regarding the quantification of learning experience associated with the technique. The aim of this study was(More)
