RESEARCH

MS Thesis and Hunterian Professorship

During his clinical appointment at Westminster hospital Mr Menzies has completed a series of experimental studies in collaboration with Genentech (USA) which investigated adhesion formation in an animal model and the use and safety of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) upon adhesion prevention after different surgical stimuli and in the presence of colonic anastomoses.

These studies have been coupled with a clinical analysis of the incidence of adhesions in over 28,000 surgical admissions, an examination of the incidence and site of adhesion production after abdominal surgery and an examination of the type of post-operative adhesion that produce intestinal obstruction.

This thesis was accepted for a Master of Surgery degree in October 1991.

Mr Menzies was awarded a Hunterian Professorship from the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Wales for this work in 1990-91.
