No new major theories of the evolution of senescence have arisen since Williams (1957) and one reason for this may be that until recently, the few experimental tests performed contributed comparatively little substantiating information toward these theories.
Endoscopic treatment of postoperative hemorrhage from a stapled colorectal anastomosis.
Endoscopic electrocoagulation may be safely and effectively used in the early postoperative period to cease unremitting anastomotic hemorrhage in patients with postoperative hemorrhage after stapled colorectal anastsomosis.
Factors that predict incomplete colonoscopy
Women, especially those with a history of abdominal hysterectomy, had a significantly lower cecal intubation rate usually because of an impassable sigmoid colon, and prior inability to complete colonoscopy to the cecum does not necessarily forecast future failure.
Abdominal wall recurrence after laparoscopic colectomy for colon cancer.
The fourth known case of abdominal wall cancer recurrence after laparoscopic colectomy involving a patient with a TNM stage III (T3, N2, M0) colon cancer is presented, with ominous implications for the future of Laparoscopic surgical procedures involving colorectal malignancy.
It is time to retire Goodsall’s Rule: the Midline Rule is a more accurate predictor of the true and natural course of anal fistulas
Over the last century, published reports support the midline as the primary (internal) origin of all anal fistulas, thus challenging the predictive accuracy of Goodsall’s Rule and prompting this expansive review.
Life-threatening hemorrhage and exsanguination from Crohn's disease
Crohn's disease may be responsible for life-threatening gastrointestinal hemorrhage and even exsanguination in young men, and many of the characteristics of these patients resemble the general Crohn’s disease population.
Challenging the predictive accuracy of goodsall's rule for anal fistulas
To examine the predictive accuracy of Goodsall's rule, the records of 216 patients who underwent surgery for complete submuscular anal fistulas from 1982 to 1989 were retrospectively reviewed and it was found that the rule is inaccurate in describing the course of complete sub Muscular anal Fistulas with an anterior external opening.
