We have studied the use of intra-vas deferens local anaesthesia in 70 patients undergoing vasectomy as day-case patients. Patients were allocated randomly to either a control or treatment group. In the treatment group, 0.5% bupivacaine 1 ml or 0.9% saline 1 ml was injected into the lumen of the right or left vas deferens in a randomized blinded design. The(More)
Recent experimental work implicates oxygen free radicals as mediators of ischemia/reperfusion injury. A simple cardioplegic solution was designed to scavenge superoxide anion and hydroxyl free radical with superoxide dismutase (10 micrograms/ml), mannitol (325 mOsm/L), and KCl 25 mEq/L (FRS). Hemodynamic and subcellular functions were studied in seven in(More)
Growing evidence supports the concept that oxygen free radicals are an important cause of myocardial ischemic and reperfusion injury. This study was designed to determine if toxic oxygen metabolites may exacerbate ischemic injury upon reoxygenation. Left ventricular function was studied in a group of seven dogs receiving intermittent, 4 degrees C,(More)
A case of penetrating metal fragment injury to the cubital fossa with subsequent development of a false aneurysm of the brachial artery with a fistulae to the vena comitans and median basilic vein is described. Surgical management involved aneurysmectomy, interposition cephalic vein graft and lateral repair of the vena comitans. Early angiography should be(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the correlation between lymph nodes harvest (LNH) and lymph nodes involvement (LNI). METHODS A retrospective analysis was done from January 2002 - August 2008 (6.5 years). The data was obtained from medical records, pathology and radiology. The patients with primary colorectal carcinoma (CRC) including synchronous or metachronous(More)
AIM The authors present a possibility of Malon Operation in adult patients with chronic constipation. They determine the quality of life at a pre-operative time and 3 months post-operatively after ACE operation. MATERIAL AND METHOD ACE is an "antegrade continent enema "operation carried out via a short laparotomy or laparoscopy creating appendicostomy. It(More)
