Among bone marrow cells, hematopoietic and mesenchymal components can contribute to repair damaged organs. Such cells are usually used in acute diseases but few options are available for the treatment of chronic disorders. In this study, we have used a laser-induced model of open angle glaucoma (OAG) to evaluate the potential of bone marrow cell populations(More)
The present status and future needs of four coral reef sites (Taba, Nuweiba , Dahab and Sharm El-Sheikh) along the Gulf of Aqaba, Egypt were evaluated. A total of 60 quadrats, distributed at different depths or different patches were surveyed at each site during the year 2007. Three mooring buoys were reported only in Ras Umm Seid but nothing was found in(More)
To determine the factors controlling IUD expulsion (Lippes loop 30 mm), Cairo's Ain-Shams Birth Control Clinic investigated 25 women with regard to the following: 1) detailed obstetric history; 2) hystergram; 3) Lipiodol hysterosalpinography (postmenstrual cases); 4) measurement of uterine cavity; 5) dilation (Hegar's No. 8) to determine internal os(More)
The proximal migration of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt into the ventricles is very rate. Only 5 cases have been previously reported [4, 8, 10, 11]. We believe that this unusual phenomenon has not been well-studied in the literature. We report a case of a 16-month-old baby girl who suffered a shunt malfunction due to complete migration of the VP shunt into(More)
CSF hydrocele as a complication of migration or extrusion of the peritoneal end of the V-P shunt has rarely been reported. Here the case of a 6 month old infant, born at 28 weeks gestational age, is reported. The baby was noted to have scrotal swelling, exacerbated by crying, two months after insertion of ventriculoperitoneal shunt. The hydrocele resolved(More)
Unerstanding patterns of career choices inmedicine is importnat for educators and policy-makers to plan the supply of specialists. This study analysed the career choices made by medical students and house officers in 2 private and 2 public medical schools in Karachi, Pakistan. An anonymous, self-administered and gynaecology were the 4 highest ranked(More)
The use of cooperative communication technology in energy harvesting sensor networks is one of the most viable solutions to overcome the power limitations of the battery-powerd sensor networks. However, combining cooperative communication and energy harvesting in a network requires an efficient and a practical relay usage scheduling scheme to maximize the(More)
One of the most common causes of shunt malfunction is infection; a major contributing factor to this infection in neonates is scalp necrosis over the valve site. One of the methods recommended to avoid this requires the burying of the valve in the skull bone. We present a case of a long-term complication from this procedure: the shunt slowly disconnected,(More)

It is devastating to write the obituary for a man I truly loved and respected. I am indebted to him for all that I have learnt from him. Dr. John A. Jane, Sr., was born on September 21, 1931, and graduated from the University of(More)
