A consecutive series of 28 patients with acutely obstructing carcinomas of the left colon and rectum were encountered during the last three years. Two patients treated by loop colostomy only were excluded from the study. Fifteen patients received a one-stage operation of immediate resection and primary anastomosis without proximal colostomy. The remaining(More)
The management of acute myoglobinuric renal failure, the major complication of rhabdomyolysis, continues to be a treatment dilemma for the clinician as limited therapeutic options are available. Previously, we have demonstrated that continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration (CAVH) is an effective technique for removing myoglobin in an animal model. In the(More)
The optimal result of colorectal surgery is best achieved by adequate preoperative colon preparation, which should be simple, safe, rapid, and thoroughly clean with little or no discomfort at all for patients. Conventional mechanical preparation, though effective, is time-consuming and unpleasant for patients, therefore new methods have been frequently(More)
The planar -CH=CHC(=O)- fragment (r.m.s. deviation = 0.074 Å) in the title compound, C(18)H(18)O(5), connects the planar hy-droxy-dimeth-oxy-phenyl (r.m.s. deviation = 0.039 Å) and meth-oxy-lphenyl (r.m.s. deviation = 0.021 Å) parts. The central fragment forms a dihedral angle of 13.7 (1)° with the hy-droxy-dimeth-oxy-phenyl part and 32.0 (1)° with the(More)
