A forced degradation study was successfully applied for the development of a stability-indicating assay method for determination of rosuvastatin Ca in the presence of its degradation products. The method was developed and optimized by analyzing the forcefully degraded samples. Degradation of the drug was done at various pH values. Moreover, the drug was(More)
OBJECTIVE Glossopharyngeal neuralgia (GPN) is a rare condition that often presents with the seemingly benign symptom of deep throat pain. Medical management of this condition has not been very effective, and surgical therapy has ranged from nerve sectioning to microvascular decompression (MVD). We present our experience with more than 200 patients who(More)
BACKGROUND Mucormycosis (Zygomycosis) is a life-threatening infection. We attempted to analyse clinical features and risk factors of Mucormycosis cases in a tertiary care referral institution in India, in patients without underlying malignancy. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed data of patients diagnosed as having Mucormycosis over a 10 year period of(More)
BACKGROUND Early treatment of elevated blood pressure (BP) in patients presenting with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) may decrease hematoma enlargement and lead to better neurologic outcome. STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine whether early BP control in patients with spontaneous ICH is both feasible and tolerated when initiated in the Emergency(More)
We report a case of Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) occurring after colonoscopy. A 60-year-old post menopausal female with syncope following an acute abdominal syndrome underwent diagnostic colonoscopy. Anginal chest pain with marked ST segment elevation occurred the day following the procedure. Coronary angiogram was entirely normal, but left(More)
We describe a unique method of accessing the ventromedial skull base and lower craniocervical junction. Our method employs a trajectory between that of the more anterior transoral or retropharyngeal approaches and the various posterior or posterolateral skull base approaches. This "extended" lateral approach allows surgeons to resect very large tumors of(More)
A 27-year-old man was admitted with a penetrating injury at the mid-manubrium. Computed tomographic (CT) angiography showed a filling defect in the aortic arch. This was evaluated as a sign of injury and the patient underwent an emergency operation. No active bleeding or clot was found in the mediastinum during the operation. The laceration point was(More)
