Mature ovarian dermoid cysts are common lesions, accounting for up to 10-25% of all ovarian neoplasms. Uncomplicated dermoid cysts are often asymptomatic and are relatively easy to diagnose on imaging and to treat. Symptoms develop once complications set in and these may cause diagnostic dilemmas. Torsion (16%) is the most common complication, while(More)
To ascertain the risk of thromboembolism and anticoagulant-related hemorrhage following mitral valve replacement with bioprostheses, an 8 year retrospective study between two groups of patients was analyzed. Group I included 206 patients undergoing mitral valve replacement with porcine xenograft valves. They were placed on a regimen of long-term oral(More)
Between March, 1971, and September, 1975, glutaraldehyde-stabilized pericardial xenografts were used for single valve replacement in.212 patients (142 aortic, 67 mitral, and three tricuspid). The 195 operative survivors were observed for a total of 5,926 months over a period 6 to 61 months (mean 30). actuarial analysis of late results indicates an expected(More)
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) developed using Leishmania donovani promastigote soluble antigen gave positive responses in practically all the clinically and parasitologically diagnosed patients with kala-azar in a preliminary study. Healthy control subjects from non-endemic and endemic areas gave negative results. No cross-reaction was(More)
To determine the intellectual, psycho-educational and functional status of low birth weight (LBW) survivors (birth weight < or = 2000 gms) beyond 5 years of age and to compare their status with normal birth weight counterparts. This was cross-sectional study. On hospital based cohort on longitudinal follow-up at the High Risk and Well Baby Clinics of a(More)
Data from 366 patients with mitral valve replacement (250 single and 116 multiple) who received pericardial xenografts between 1971 and 1981 were analyzed. Cumulative duration of follow-up was 1,151 patient-years, with a maximum duration of 10.7 years. Actuarial survival at 11 years is 71.6 +/- 14.2%. Pericardial valve failure occurred in 7 patients (0.6(More)
This study was conducted to elucidate the changes in key antioxidant enzymes e.g. Superoxide dismutase (SOD), Catalase and Glutathione peroxidase (GPx) along with lipid peroxidation (LPO) in preterm newborns having hyaline membrane disease (HMD) and thus to find out role of free radicals mediated injury in this disease. Twenty one preterm appropriate for(More)
Sexual HIV-1 transmission by vaginal route is the most predominant mode of viral transmission, resulting in millions of new infections every year. In the absence of an effective vaccine, there is an urgent need to develop other alternative methods of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Many novel drugs that are currently approved for clinical use also show(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the activities of key antioxidant enzymes [superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), catalase] and the level of malonyl dialdehyde (MDA) in neonates with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) and controls. DESIGN Prospective cross sectional study. SETTING Tertiary care level II neonatal unit of teaching hospital. (More)
