Sequence-related amplified polymorphism markers were used to assess the genetic structure in three natural populations of Morus alba from trans-Himalaya. Multilocation sampling was conducted across 14 collection sites. The overall genetic diversity estimates were high: percentage polymorphic loci 89.66%, Nei’s gene diversity 0.2286, and Shannon’s(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical tests, such as loss of verbal contact, eyelash reflex, corneal reflex, and jaw relaxation, are used to assess the depth of anesthesia. "Trapezius squeeze test" (TST) is one such clinical test. It is a simple test to perform in which 1-2 inches of trapezius muscle is held and squeezed in full thickness and response is evaluated in the(More)
BACKGROUND Clonidine is added to intrathecal local anesthetics to improve intraoperative analgesia and to increase the duration of sensory and motor block. Aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the effects of addition of two different doses of clonidine (15 and 30 mcg) to 11 mg hyperbaric bupivacaine in patients undergoing inguinal herniorrhaphy(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Infraclavicular (IC) approach of subclavian vein (SCV) catheterisation is widely used as compared to supraclavicular (SC) approach. The aim of the study was to compare the ease of catheterisation of SCV using SC versus IC approach and also record the incidence of complications related to either approach, if any. METHODS In the study,(More)
BACKGROUND Skull base surgery needs advanced equipment and is performed at few public sector hospitals in India. For financial and infrastructure reasons, the facilities available are insufficient for the large number of poor patients who need this surgery. METHODS Neurologically deteriorating poor patients who failed to receive skull base surgery at(More)
BACKGROUND The studies on ophthalmic diseases and disorders in a population of rhesus macaques, in particular with free-ranging macaques, are limited mainly by the difficulty in capturing animals and obtaining samples. METHODS From October 2011 to 2013, prevalence of various ophthalmic affections was recorded and analyzed on the basis of sex, age-group,(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical study. PURPOSE To observe the usefulness of anterior cervical osteophytes as intrinsic markers for spinal level localization (SLL) during sub-axial cervical spinal surgery via the anterior approach. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Various landmarks, such as the mandibular angle, hyoid bone, thyroid cartilage, first cricoid ring,(More)
Optical memory in a deformed-helix ferroelectric liquid crystal is proposed by deforming the helix under the application of a square-voltage pulse of known magnitude and frequency. This effect is based on the electromechanical effect of helix deformation due to the electric field. When the interaction between the electric field and the dipole is(More)
