Abstract How students experience educational environments and the interconnections between their readiness, task experiences and their long-term desire to reengage with course content are critical questions for educators. Research postgraduate students (n = 310) at a research-intensive university in Hong Kong, engaging in a 24-h introductory teaching course, participated in this study. Learner readiness for the course was assessed as prior Domain interest, self-efficacy, and knowledge. Subsequen...

This case study aims to understand how research postgraduate (RPg) students at a Hong Kong university perceive academic integrity before and after participating in the Trail of Integrity and Ethics on the general issues of academic misconduct (TIE-General learning trail), which makes use of Augmented Reality (AR) technology and mobile application to help students acquire abstract concepts (Wong, et al., 2018). A total of 33 RPg students, who had completed the mandatory courses on research ethics...

Background One-stage surgery with primary anastomosis is not widely accepted for acute leftsided colonic obstruction. Patients and Methods Forty-four patients representing our total admission for acute left-sided colonic obstruction over a 3-year period were evaluated with regard to their suitability for onestage surgery and primary anastomosis. Results Thirty-five patients (80%) were found to be suitable for this approach and the failures were mainly due to either the advanced nature of the mal...

Data from 110 Chinese patients presenting with papillary thyroid cancer to a single institution up to December 1985 have been analyzed to evaluate the possible risk factors affecting survival. There were 83 women and 27 men with an age range of 15 to 78 years (mean 45 years, median 42 years). The longest follow-up period is 39 years and the median 10 years. Cervical lymph node recurrence more than 6 months after surgery developed in 12 patients, of whom 1 died with a concomitant distant metastas...

Abstract Obturator hernia is a rare but important cause of small bowel obstruction that is associated with difficult diagnosis and high mortality. In the past 7 years, 16 patients with small bowel obstruction due to obturator hernia diagnosed at operation were seen at the Department of Surgery, the University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital. They represented 1% (16 of 1,554) of all hernia repair performed and 1.6% (16 of 1,000) of mechanical intestinal obstruction encountered during the same p...

Phytobezoars are an uncommon but important cause of mechanical small bowel obstruction. Seventeen Chinese patients with small bowel obstruction due to phytobezoars underwent 19 operations at the Department of Surgery, The University of Hong Kong at Queen Mary Hospital, accounting for 2% of mechanical small bowel obstruction treated in the past decade. There were ten men and seven women with an average age of 58 years. All except five patients had previous gastric outlet surgery. The diagnosis de...

When conservative treatment fails in the management of patients with malignant bowel obstruction secondary to advanced, recurrent colorectal cancer, the attitude toward surgery is often less than enthusiastic because of the limited life expectancy. We report a retrospective review of 30 patients with unresectable intra-abdominal disease who underwent laparotomy for the relief of bowel obstruction. Normal bowel function was restored in 19 patients (63 percent). The failures included five patients...

Clinical and endoscopic data were collected prospectively in 1050 patients with bleeding peptic ulcer admitted between September 1985 and July 1989 to the care of one surgical team. Seventy-nine patients underwent therapeutic endoscopy soon after admission and in 129 patients either immediate or early elective surgery was performed. Eight hundred and forty-two patients, in whom therapeutic endoscopy was not performed at any stage, underwent initial conservative management and data from this latt...

The ileo-anal pouch procedure is now a well-established method for dealing with ulcerative colitis and familial polyposis in many centres in the West. Experience in the Chinese population is not well documented, mainly due to the rarity of inflammatory bowel disease. This report documents the experience of a university teaching hospital in Hong Kong. Despite being a small series, the low complication rates and good functional results show that the pelvic pouch procedure has now evolved to a stag...
