A further aim was to describe GORD patients' experiences of illness and surgical treatment and if possible to find striking characteristics relating to laparoscopic or open surgery. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of Total Parenteral Nutrition on the Exocrine and Endocrine Pancreas. An Experimental Study
