The extensor digitorum communis (ED) is generally regarded as a fairly undiversified muscle that gives extensor tendons to all fingers. Some fine wire electromyographic (EMG) investigations have been carried out to study individuation of the muscle parts to the different fingers. However, individuated surface EMG of the ED has not been investigated. This(More)
The study was conducted to investigate the effects of different light intensities (25, 50, 67, and 100% of full sun [open]) on arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) colonization and growth of two intercrops (a rainy season crop, Phaseolus mungo Roxb. var. PU-35 and a winter crop, Triticum aestivum L. var. WH-147) and seedlings of two multipurpose tree species(More)
Idiopathic facial nerve palsy, also known as Bell palsy is rare in the neonatal age group. Other more common causes such as birth trauma; infections, especially otitis media; and congenital malformations need to be excluded. We present here a 4-week-old neonate with Bell palsy who responded rapidly to oral corticosteroids. Such an early presentation of(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Mangroves of Western Gujarat (India) are subject to die-back. Salinity intolerance is one possible cause, especially in young plants. We therefore quantified the extent to which young plants of one widely occurring mangrove species (Ceriops tagal) tolerate high salt in terms of establishment, growth, water status, proline content and(More)
BACKGROUND Regional anesthesia using paravertebral block has been suggested as an ideal adjunct to general anesthesia for modified radical mastectomy. Paravertebral block is an effective management of peri-operative pain for Modified radical mastectomy, however, there are no established guidelines regarding what is the most suitable strategy when varying(More)
Biferrocene bearing planar metal dithiocarbamates, namely, [M(FcCH2dtc)2] (dtc = furan-2-ylmethyldithiocarbamate, M = Cu(II) 1, Ni(II) 4; dtc = benzo[d][1,3]dioxol-5-ylmethyl dithiocarbamate, M = Cu(II) 2, Ni(II) 5; dtc = pyridin-2-ylmethyldithiocarbamate, M = Cu(II) 3, Ni(II) 6; Fc = ferrocenyl; Fe(η(5)-C5H5)(η(5)-C5H4-)), have been synthesized and(More)
Crystal structures of novel pyridyl functionalised [Tl(L)]∞ (L = (N-benzyl-N-methylpyridyl) dithiocarbamate(L1) 1, bis(N-methylpyridyl) dithiocarbamate(L2) 2, (N-methyl(1,4-benzodioxane-6-yl)-N-methylpyridyl)dithiocarbamate(L3) 3, (N-ferrocenyl-N-methylpyridyl) dithiocarbamate(L4) 4) complexes revealed rare intermolecular C-H···Tl anagostic and C-S···Tl(More)
Beneficial effects of bio-inoculants on growth and yield of plants grown in sunlight have been reported world over but information on their effect under shade is meagre. Therefore, to assess the effect of shade on bio-inoculants, viz. rhizobial (RB) and phosphate-solubilizing bacteria (PSB), and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), which are associated with(More)
Background:Magnesium has anti-nociceptive effects and potentiates opioid analgesia following its systemic and neuraxial administration. In our study, the effect of intravenous magnesium sulphate in pre-eclamptic patients on spinal anaesthesia produced by bupivacaine was investigated. Materials and Methods:Sixty pregnant (30 normal and 30 pre-eclamptic)(More)
Endotracheal tube block due to various mechanical causes such as mucous, blood clot, denture, and ampoules have been reported. A patient of achalasia cardia with chronic passive aspiration pneumonitis developed mucoid mass in the respiratory passage which dislodged during the surgical procedure. The episode occurred almost an hour after induction of(More)
