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 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 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)
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)
