PURPOSE Although ropivacaine has been used to provide spinal anesthesia in the surgical population, its intrathecal administration for labour analgesia has only recently been described. We evaluated the effects of low dose intrathecal ropivacaine with or without sufentanil for labour analgesia. METHODS Thirty-six term parturients in active labour were(More)
We report the chemopreventive activity of Acacia nilotica (Linn.) gum, flower and leaf aqueous extracts, on 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA) induced skin papillomagenesis in male Swiss albino mice. Animals were divided into following groups: Group I (Controls) given DMBA and croton oil, with no extract ; Group II (treatment) animals treated with Acacia(More)
The world faces both near-term and potentially long-term shortfalls in funding for HIV/AIDS care and treatment. We review the current funding environment, then discuss a range of opportunities to optimize spending on HIV/AIDS. These include (but are not limited to) more use of specific technologies, such as fixed-dose combination drugs or new diagnostics,(More)
UNLABELLED The relationship between epidural analgesia and cesarean delivery remains controversial. Several studies have documented an association, although others have not. This inconsistency may result from an association between severe labor pain and dystocia. We hypothesized that dystocia causes severe labor pain, such that more epidural medication is(More)
BACKGROUND Middle and low-income countries have scaled up HIV treatment in the past 5 years. To maintain this effort, information regarding the amounts and types of drugs is needed. Shortages or overstock of active pharmaceutical ingredients make the scale-up efforts more difficult and costly. To inform global planning and implementation, we estimate the(More)
The objective of this study was to compare four different doses of oxytocin to determine its minimal effective dose during elective cesarean section. A prospective, double-blind, randomized study was undertaken in 40 healthy term parturients presenting for elective cesarean section under regional anesthesia. Subjects were assigned to one of four groups.(More)
In the present investigation, the chemopreventive potential of aqueous extracts of the root and fruit of Tribulus terrestris (an Ayurvedic medicinal plant) on 7, 12 - dimethylbenz (a) anthracene (DMBA) induced papillomagenesis in male Swiss albino mice was studied. A significant reduction in tumor incidence, tumor burden and cumulative number of papillomas(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine factors associated with abnormal coagulation in the setting of intrauterine fetal death (IUFD). METHODS We reviewed the charts of 238 patients diagnosed with IUFD over ten years. Data included demographics, co-existing obstetric disease and coagulation studies. A coagulation score was assigned based on(More)
OBJECTIVE 1) To determine relation of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) thickness with sagittal abdominal diameter (SAD) and other anthropometric measurements in metabolic syndrome (MetS). 2) To determine relation of epicardial adipose tissue with biochemical variables of metabolic syndrome. METHODS Cases were recruited from the patients attending OPD in(More)
