Vestibular fistula and perineal ectopic anus are the most common anorectal malformations in female children. Anterior saggital anorectoplasty (ASARP) was used to treat 416 patients with these anomalies, as well as cases of perineal canal and third-degree perineal tear, during a 20 year period. Preliminary colostomy was performed in only four patients, who(More)
The effects of inoculation with vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizal (VAM) fungus Glomusfasciculatum on the root colonization, growth, essential oil yield and nutrient acquisition of three cultivars of menthol mint (Mentha arvensis); Kalka, Shivalik and Gomti, were studied under field conditions. The VAM inoculation significantly increased the root(More)
Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy anastomosis is the treatment of choice for common hepatic duct injury type E2. It has been performed laparoscopically with the advancement of laparoscopic skill. Recently, a telemanipulative robotic surgical system was introduced, providing laparoscopic instruments with wrist-arm technology and 3-dimensional visualization of(More)
Proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine balance and associated changes in pulmonary bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of unleaded gasoline exhaust (GE) exposed mice were investigated. Animals were exposed to GE (1 L/min of GE mixed with 14 L/min of compressed air) using a flow-past, nose-only, dynamic inhalation exposure chamber for different(More)
PURPOSE To assess the efficacy of preoperative intravitreal bevacizumab with guarded filtration surgery and mitomycin C in neovascular glaucoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective, noncomparative interventional case series, neovascular glaucoma patients who had not responded to or could not receive panretinal photocoagulation were recruited.(More)
BACKGROUND This study was undertaken to compare the postoperative pain after cholecystectomy done by single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) versus conventional four-port laparoscopy [conventional laparoscopic surgery (CLS)]. SILS is a feasible and a promising method for cholecystectomy. It is possible to do this procedure without the use of special(More)
BACKGROUND To report the safety and efficacy of Ex-PRESS(TM) miniature glaucoma implant under a scleral flap in patients with previous ocular surgeries. DESIGN Retrospective, non-comparative case series from a tertiary care hospital. PARTICIPANTS Patients with previous cataract or failed glaucoma surgeries who had undergone implantation of the(More)
Transmyocardial laser revascularization (TLR) was initially touted as a promising therapeutic alternative for tackling the growing problem of cardiac allograft vasculopathy in late heart transplant survivors. We first described 4- and 8-week observations of application of this surgical technique, in which we professed enthusiasm for TLR in providing(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic opioid use has been associated with the development of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) such as central sleep apnea (CSA). Patients receiving chronic opioids may suffer from unrecognized sleep apnea that contributes to opioid-overdose death. Currently, information regarding the perioperative management of patients with chronic(More)
