Anterior anal sphincter repair for fecal incontinence: Good longterm results are possible (2006)
Journal Article
Maslekar, S., Gardiner, A. B., & Duthie, G. S. (2007). Anterior anal sphincter repair for fecal incontinence: Good longterm results are possible. Journal of The American College of Surgeons, 204(1), (40-46). doi:10.1016/j.jamcollsurg.2006.10.008. ISSN 1072-7515

Background: Anterior anal sphincter repair (ASR) is standard treatment for fecal incontinence resulting from an obstetrically damaged anal sphincter. Longterm results of repair have generally been shown to be poor. This review of single-unit series a...

A new method of assessing anal sphincter integrity using inverted vectormanometry (2006)
Journal Article
Kaur, G., Gardiner, A., & Duthie, G. S. (2006). A new method of assessing anal sphincter integrity using inverted vectormanometry. Diseases of the colon & rectum, 49(8), 1160-1166. doi:10.1007/s10350-006-0556-8

PURPOSE: Vectorgraphy as an integrated mapping of radial pressure profiles of the anal canal has been used to attempt identification of pressure-related defects with doubtful reliability since vectorgraphs bear no resemblance to endoanal ultrasound s...

Faecal incontinence is a debilitating condition affecting people of all ages, and significantly impairs quality of life. Proper clinical assessment followed by conservative medical therapy leads to improvement in more than 50% of cases, including pat...

Randomised controlled trial of sedation for colonoscopy: Entonox versus intravenous sedation (2006)
Journal Article
Maslekar, S. K., Hughes, M., Skinn, E., Gardiner, A., Culbert, B., & Duthie, G. S. (2006). Randomised controlled trial of sedation for colonoscopy: Entonox versus intravenous sedation. Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, 63(5), AB97. doi:10.1016/j.gie.2006.03.087

Introduction: Intravenous sedation for colonoscopy is associated with cardio-respiratory complications, delayed recovery and prolonged drowsiness. We aimed to determine whether inhaled Entonox

Non-medical colonoscopy (2006)
Journal Article

Sacral nerve neuromodulation as primary treatment for faecal incontinence with disrupted anal sphincters: medium and long-term results (2006)
Journal Article
Gardiner, A., Maslekar, S., & Duthie, G. (2006). Sacral nerve neuromodulation as primary treatment for faecal incontinence with disrupted anal sphincters: medium and long-term results. Gastroenterology, 130(4), (A728 - A728). ISSN 0016-5085

Introduction The standard treatment for faecal incontinence secondary to obstetric sphincterdamage is anal sphincter repair. However, the results of this procedure deteriorate withtime. Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) has become an established therapy...

Introduction: There is an increasing demand for colonoscopy, especially with introduction of screening programmes. Though it is performed by doctors and nurses, there is an acute shortage of trained colonoscopists. Non-medical personnel were therefor...

Can artificial neural networks predict which patients need a colonoscopy? (2006)
Journal Article
Gardiner, A., Maslekar, S., & Duthie, G. (2006). Can artificial neural networks predict which patients need a colonoscopy?. Gut : journal of the British Society of Gastroenterology, 55, (A23 - A23). ISSN 0017-5749

Introduction: Artificial neural networks (ANN) are computer programs used to identify complex relations within data sets undetectable with conventional linear statistical analysis. One such complex problem is the prediction of need for lower gastroin... Read More about Can artificial neural networks predict which patients need a colonoscopy?.
