To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of vaginal misoprostol for cervical priming prior to diagnostic hysteroscopy and to assess impact on pain scores and patient satisfaction. One hundred women undergoing hysteroscopy were randomly allocated into two groups. The study group (n = 50) received 400 µg of misoprostol vaginally (self administered) 4–6 h(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and complications of uterine artery embolization (UAE) versus laparoscopic occlusion of uterine vessels (LOUV) in the management of symptomatic fibroids. METHODS A pilot randomized clinical trial in which 20 patients with symptomatic fibroids were randomly allocated into two groups. Ten women underwent UAE, and 10 women(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To compare the analgesic efficacy of lignocaine gel-soaked Silastic bands compared with rectal diclofenac suppositories in patients undergoing interval laparoscopic sterilization under conscious sedation. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled, single-blinded, clinical trial. SETTING Day-case center in a tertiary care hospital in(More)
Methotrexate (Mtx) is accepted modality for conservative treatment of ectopic pregnancy. However, there is no consensus regarding its use in live ectopic pregnancy and high serum beta-human chorionic gonadotrophin (β-hCG) titres. We report a successful management of live ectopic pregnancy in a 27-year-old nulliparous woman, with very high β-hCG titres(More)
Ontology-based disease classification offers a way to rigorously assign disease types and to reuse diagnostic knowledge. However, ontology itself is not sufficient for fully representing the complex knowledge needed in classification schemes which are continuously evolving. This article describes the application of SWRL/OWL-DL to the representation of(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the efficacy of oral naproxen with intrauterine instillation of 1% lignocaine for pain relief in women undergoing hysterosalpingography (HSG) as an infertility investigation. METHODS One hundred women undergoing HSG were randomly allocated into 2 groups. Group A (n = 50) underwent intrauterine instillation of 5 mL of 1% lignocaine 2(More)
We have designed a Biobank Portal that lets researchers request Biobank samples and genotypic data, query associated electronic health records, and design and download datasets containing de-identified attributes about consented Biobank subjects. This do-it-yourself functionality puts a wide variety and volume of data at the fingertips of investigators,(More)
Fistulas between the uterus and bowel are rarely reported. We report successful laparoscopic management of a colouterine fistula caused by a foreign body in the uterus. Fistulas between the gastrointestinal tract and the female genital tract are usually found between the vagina and rectum as a result of complications of childbirth or iatrogenic trauma.(More)
Glycan-bound nanoprobes have been demonstrated as suitable sensing probes for bacteria containing glycan binding sites. In this study, we demonstrated a facile approach for generating glycan-bound gold nanoclusters (AuNCs). The generated AuNCs were used as sensing probes for corresponding target bacteria. Mannose-capped AuNCs (AuNCs@Mann) were generated and(More)
