    A retrospective audit of the surgical insertion and clinical outcome of silastic venous catheters on our Haematology Unit was performed for the period 1985 to 1988. Twenty-three (58%) of the 40 lines had complications, and analysis showed that many were due to problems related to the surgical...

    Background: Pancreatic resection for severe acute necrotizing pancreatitis has been associated with prohibitive mortality rates and has been hence replaced by piecemeal debridement, either by the open or the laparoscopic technique. We report the results of deliberate subtotal pancreatectomy with...
