Last year UW researchers co-authored two of the top 10 best papers that influenced surgical practice, according to a listing in the July 2000 issue of the Archives of Surgery.
The papers were:
"Alcohol Interventions in a Trauma Center as a Means of Reducing the Risk of Injury Recurrence" published in the Annals of Surgery, with Larry Gentilello, associate professor of surgery, as the lead author.
"Neostigmine for the Treatment of Acute Colonic Pseudobstruction," published in The New England Journal of Medicine, with Michael Kimmey, professor of medicine, as a co-author with R.J. Ponec and M.D. Saunders.
