Abstract: The results of surgery for peptic ulcer may be assessed in many ways. For instance, an assessment may focus on such factors as mortality and morbidity immediately after operation. Early postoperative mortality is, however, low-whatever the operation-and most workers have therefore concentrated on the medium and long-term results of surgery and have dealt with the presence or absence of symptoms attributable to recurrent ulceration or the operative procedure itself, together with the severity of these symptoms.… Show more

“…However, as far as the present authors are aware, none of the aforementioned studies demonstrate how to improve the moderate reliability observed in EEG interpretations. In fact there are only a few studies that show how to improve reliability in the clinical laboratory overall 11–13 . It is generally agreed that jointly examining the sources of interrater variability and establishing a consensus guideline to address the uncertainties can enhance the reliability.…”

“…Clinical disagreement over patients' histories is also observed in other studies where clinicians agreed about the history in only 75% of cases [7,8]. It is not less of a problem in the physical examination.…”

“…The diagnostic yield of D-dimer and ventilationperfusion lung scan is reduced in elderly patients [7], while that of lower limb venous compression US increases in parallel with the increasing proportion of patients with PE-associated deep vein thrombosis with older age [8]. On the other hand, the performance of single-detector helical CT is not influenced by increasing age [9], and similar results may be expected for multidetector helical CT.…”

“…'Regurgitation' and 'acid brash' refer to regurgitation of bitter, sour or acid fluid into the mouth so that an effort has to be made either to spit the fluid out or to swallow it again. Symptoms were graded using the York classification (Hall et al, 1976 help to reduce observer error in grading (De Dombal and Horrocks, 1975). There was no significant difference between the two groups regarding postoperative symptoms (Table ZV) apart from the incidence of de nouo acid brash (PGV group 6 of 28, PGV and gastropexy group 0 of 17) and the amelioration in PGV and gastropexy cases of heartburn and acid brash in grade 3 refluxers (Table V ) .…”

“…It included the 2 academic members of the small working group for stress ulcer [63], the chairmen of the 2 Units, 2 consultants and 2 senior registrars. To reduce observer variation [43] all members of the group had been trained in systematic follow-up [91] and endoscopy during a 3-year prospective trial [92]. The clinical surgeon of the small working group tbr stress ulcer, M.F., and in his absence the chairman of the prospective study on endoscopy [92], H.R., had to admit the patients to trial in all "clear" cases.…”
