Working with GrahamSkan:
The routine is producing what appears to be the wrong answer for the following instance
In Word Edit>GoTo>Bookmark>Abstrac
t in order to select the text being counted
In Immediate window ?ActiveDocument.Bookmarks(
).Range gives [See the resulting text in snippet below]
In Immediate window ?selection.Words.Count gives 328
In Immediate window?ActiveDocument.Book
Count gives 328
In Word the menu command Tools>Word Count gives 265
In Immediate window ?ubound(split(ActiveDocume
," ")) gives 270 (Origin is 0)
The correct answer is 270 manually counting and also counted in Excel to be 270.
What accounts for all the discrepancies?
328 from the routine;
265 from the builtin function;
270 by counting the words 3 other ways (manual, excel, VBA function Split)
I know - it's the ¿¿Twilight Zone?? Friday 13th, who knows.
Strategies for vascular control and limiting warm ischemia time vary between institutions for laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy (LLDN). We refined our technique and retrospectively determined whether it safely provides an allograft of comparable quality to published series. Bla Bla Bla.
Patients and Methods:
Fifty consecutive LLDN between February 2003 and November 2006 were reviewed. Key technical aspects include placing the perfused kidney and transected ureter entirely within an endocatch bag, with the string externalized through an extended lateral port site incision. Vessels are then controlled with clips, or a Satinsky clamp for right sided veins. The extraction incision is completed and the bag immediately withdrawn and placed on ice. Warm ischemia time (WIT) ends with perfusion with cold UW solution.
The series includes 42 left and 8 right kidneys. 13/50 (26%) demonstrated anatomical complexity (more than one artery, vein and/or ureter). Average operative time was 178 minutes. Average WIT was 129 seconds. Conversion to open surgery occurred in 2 patients, one to define challenging anatomy, and another for hemorrhage from the renal artery stump. Average blood loss was 120 ml. Average length of stay was 3.6 days.
Average recipient creatinine was 1.26 mg/dl at discharge. Delayed graft function occurred in three recipients. ATN/slow normalization of creatinine occurred in four. Ureteral injury occurred in one patient. Graft survival at 1 year was 96%.
The refined technique of LLDN mimics important principles of open donor nephrectomy. Controllable variables which may impact graft function are optimized. WIT is amongst the lowest reported for pure laparoscopy, without increasing complication rates, blood loss, or operative time.
