BACKGROUND To investigate foot pressure distribution parameter-power ratio (PR) difference between pre-obese and non-obese adults subjects during standing and show the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and PR value. METHODS We examined 22 healthy adult subjects aged from 20 to 45 years were classified into two groups according to their BMI values,(More)
Complete duplication of the pituitary gland is an extremely rare condition which is associated with a wide range of anomalies. An incomplete duplication affecting only the anterior pituitary gland or the pituitary stalk has not been described so far. We report 2 such cases of partial duplication of the hypophysis and briefly review the literature.
BACKGROUND There is little published literature on the profile of patients with Cushing's syndrome (CS) from India. The aim of this study was to compile data of CS patients treated at this hospital. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients referred to the endocrine services of this hospital for diagnosis/treatment of CS from January 1985 to July 2012 were the(More)
Osteoporosis (OP) is being increasingly recognized in inflammatory rheumatic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Ethnicity influences bone mineral density (BMD) and fracture risk. Due to paucity of data on this aspect of RA from Asian countries including India, we prospectively studied 84 premenopausal women with RA of at least 2 years duration and 247(More)
BACKGROUND Insulinomas are rare tumors that are usually benign, single and curable by simple surgical excision. They can present problems in diagnosis and localization. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective analysis of patients with insulinoma managed during a 13-year period (1992-2005) at a tertiary-level institution. RESULTS 31 patients (mean age 38.4 [SD 13.3](More)
Diabetes Mellitus is a disorder of metabolism. Foot problems are common in diabetes and altered plantar pressures distribution may lead to ulceration in people with Diabetes Mellitus. Therefore the aim of this study was to investigate standing plantar pressure distribution variations in north Asian Indian diabetes mellitus subjects and its association with(More)
BACKGROUND Women and men are anatomically and physiologically different in a number of ways. They differ in both shape and size. These differences could potentially mean foot pressure distribution variation in men and women. The purpose of this study was to analyze standing foot pressure image to obtain the foot pressure distribution parameter - power ratio(More)
The aim of this article is to investigate the association of limited joint mobility and foot sole hardness in north Asian Indian type 2 diabetic patients. Limited joint mobility and hardness of the foot sole were measured for 39 subjects attending the AIIMS Endocrinology & Metabolism Clinic. The total subject divided into three groups: 13 control subjects(More)
BACKGROUND Foot problems are common in older people and altered biomechanical parameters under the foot sole has been proposed as a key risk factor for foot lesions. Therefore the aim of this study was to investigate the age-related differences in the hardness of foot sole skin. METHODS Twenty-six healthy volunteers without foot problems, aged from 26 to(More)
