  • rectal
  • We present a review of 12 patients with T2 rectal cancers who have undergone the TEM procedure, 6 of whom had additional radiotherapy and 6 who did not either because they were not fit to undergo this or because they elected for subsequent radical surgery. (bmj.com)
  • Method The records of all patient who had undergone a TEM procedure for rectal carcinoma at Royal Preston Hospital were reviewed and all those with T2 pathological staging identified. (bmj.com)
  • Kumasi
  • Prior to July 2007, patients with aspirated foreign bodies in the three northern regions (Northern, Upper East, and Upper West) of Ghana were referred to tertiary hospitals in the south, notably the Korle-Bu and Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospitals in Accra and Kumasi, respectively, for treatment due to nonavailability of the requisite expertise and equipment to manage these patients.

  • cataract surgery
  • The clinical and microbiologic records were reviewed of all patients with clinically diagnosed endophthalmitis within 6 weeks following cataract surgery at a single university-affiliated hospital between January 2000 and September 2005. (arvojournals.org)
  • Patients with delayed-onset endophthalmitis (infection diagnosed greater than 6 weeks after surgery) and endophthalmitis referred to the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute following cataract surgery performed elsewhere were also excluded. (arvojournals.org)
  • You will have a telephone assessment, by our nursing staff, a week following cataract surgery (for both first and second eye operations). (hey.nhs.uk)
  • If you have undergone cataract surgery in the second eye and you do not have any pre-existing eye conditions that require monitoring or treatment, you will not receive further appointments in the eye clinic (unless problems are reported during your telephone consultation). (hey.nhs.uk)
  • It is normal for the eye to appear red, feel gritty and itchy for a while after cataract surgery. (hey.nhs.uk)

  • A study published in the Journal of Neurology: Spine has found that "patients who undergo adult spinal deformity surgery at a teaching hospital may have significantly decreased odds of developing a postoperative complication", in comparison with patients treated at nonteaching hospitals in the USA.

  • Postoperative
  • To determine the incidence of postoperative complications, including 30-day mortality rate, and need for intensive care unit (ICU) admission in older patients after non-cardiac surgery. (mja.com.au)
  • Older patients having surgery had high rates of comorbidities and postoperative complications, placing considerable demands on critical care services. (mja.com.au)
  • patient
  • Patient factors were often stronger predictors of mortality than the type of surgery. (mja.com.au)

  • However, there were also some significant differences in the types of surgeries performed and the characteristics of patients treated. (bio-medicine.org)
