BACKGROUND: Hospital nurses are frequently the first care givers to receive a patient's request for euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide (PAS). In France, there is no consensus over which medical practices should be considered euthanasia, and this lack of consensus blurred the debate about euthanasia and PAS legalisation. This study aimed to investigate French hospital nurses' opinions towards both legalisations, including personal conceptions of euthanasia and working conditions and organisation...

Esophagorespiratory fistulas, especially in the upper third of the esophagus, are a complication of malignant esophageal tumors, whose management is difficult and prognosis is poor. Treatment is palliative and involves restoration of the ability to ingest food and prevention of aspiration by insertion of esophageal or tracheobronchial stents. In selected patients the insertion of a single stent may be insufficient for pallation therefore the placement of parallel stents may be indicated in patients with symptoms caused by malignant esophagorespiratory fistula...

Residents participate in the care of patients in the inpatient care setting and make joint home visits with physicians and other team members. A series of 4 lectures on end-of-life care is given on Tuesday mornings: management of pain, other symptoms, interdisciplinary roles of chaplains, social workers, nurses, and grief/bereavement are discussed...

Mycosis fungoides is the most common form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. In our department, between January 1995 to January 2001, we treated eleven patients with mycosis fungoides by total body skin electron irradiation to evaluate its influence. According to our knowledge, our department is the only center in Turkey capable of applying total skin electron beam therapy. Total skin electron beam therapy was applied by using the "translational technique". Daily doses (4 Gray) were given in a total of seven fractions according to the conventional fractionation scheme...

When pallative cholecystoenterostomy is contemplated but the cystic duct is found to be occluded, anastomosis of the hepatic duct to the gallbladder in combination with cholecystoenterostomy is a satisfactory alternative to decompression of the heptic duct by jejunal anastomosis and may be easier to perform. Hepatocholecystostomy is also useful as a simple operative method for restoring continuity when jaundice recurs after cholecystoenterostomy done for cystic duct obstruction.

Communication is one of the most important aspects of cancer nursing. Evidence suggests nurses experience communication difficulties and frequently block patients from divulging their worries or concerns. This paper focuses on a study which aimed to determine: (a) the extent to which nurses facilitate or block patients and awareness of their verbal behaviours; (b) whether there is a relationship between nurses' verbal behaviours and levels of anxiety, social support, work support and attitude to death; and (c) nurses' difficulties in caring for cancer patients...

During the 25 years 1960-84, 657 patients were operated on for carcinomas of the thoracic oesophagus (n = 347) or gastric cardia (n = 310). Resection was carried out in 514 (78%) and oesophagogastrostomy in 481 (73%). Overall operative mortality (defined as death within 30 days) was 19% (n = 122). Pulmonary complications developed in 167 patients (25%), cardiovascular complications in 100 (15%), and anastomotic leakage and mediastinitis in 36 (6%). After radical resection of a localised tumour (n = 144), or non-localised tumour (n = 224), pallative resection (n = 146), or exploration (n = 143), the operative mortality and five year cumulative survival were 10% and 26%, 15% and 8%, 27% and 0, and 24% and 0, respectively (p less than 0...

Bases on the experiences with the application of cryotherapy to 393 patients with 440 cryosurgical operations, special and general experiences concerning the cryotherapy in gynaecology are presented. Accordingly, the cryotherapy is suitable to increase the number of the conventional methods of medical attendance to the vulva, the vagina, and to the cervix uteri. The main possibilities of application are those to the sanitation indications of the portio, to the removal of acute condylomes, and to the pallative as well as to the curative therapy of the vulva carcinomes...
