Phosphorus, nitrogen and dissolved organic carbon fluxes from sediments in freshwater rivermouths entering Green Bay (Lake Michigan; USA)

James H Larson, Mary Anne Evans, Faith A Fitzpatrick, Paul C Frost, William F James, Paul C Reneau, Marguerite A Xenopoulos,

Transitional areas between ecosystem types are often active biogeochemically due to resource limitation changes. Lotic-to-lentic transitions in freshwaters appear active biogeochemically, but few studies have directly measured nutrient processing rates to assess whether processing within the rivermouth is important for load estimates or the local communities. We measured oxic fluxes ... Read more >>

Predictors of Readmission Following Proctectomy for Rectal Cancer.

Emer P O'Connell, Vincent Healy, Fidelma Fitzpatrick, Caitriona A Higgins, John P Burke, Deborah A McNamara,

BACKGROUND:Unplanned readmission after surgery negatively impacts surgical recovery. Few studies have sought to define predictors of readmission in a rectal cancer cohort alone. Readmission following rectal cancer surgery may be reduced by the identification and modification of factors associated with readmission.
