Two hundred and forty eight cases of proved typhoid ileal perforation were admitted and treated in three phases in the department of surgery during 1966-1998. Of these, 71% patients belonged to second and third decades of life. Male female ratio was 4:1. Abdominal pain (100%) fever (95%) and constipation (87%) were the main presenting symptoms. Abdominal(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to assess the accuracy of high-resolution sonography in measuring penile carcinoma. METHODS Sonography was performed using a 7.5-MHz linear-array transducer in 59 patients with penile carcinoma. The sonographic measurement of tumor extent was compared with clinical and pathologic measurements. The tumor extent measured by(More)
BACKGROUND Duodenal ulcer perforation is a common emergency in south India, with about 100-120 cases being treated at Jawaharalal Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research each year. The routine to date has been to leave two tube drains: one in the Morrison's pouch and one in the pelvis after omental patch closure. This study was conducted(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the possibility of reducing the margin of clearance at surgery for carcinoma of the penis without causing an increase in the incidence of local tumour recurrence, so that the functional and cosmetic compromise associated with penectomy might be minimized. PATIENTS AND METHODS Sixty-four patients underwent partial or total penectomy(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Small bowel anastomoses performed in the emergent setting have a high risk of leakage. Attention to technical detail is imperative but does not guarantee success in these situations. We sought out factors that could play a role in the process of anastomotic dehiscence under these conditions. METHODS 70 patients underwent 74 emergency small(More)
BACKGROUND Perforated duodenal ulcer is one of the common surgical emergencies. Releak after duodenal ulcer perforation closure is an important cause of mortality. This study was planned to analyse risk factors if any, which could predict releak following duodenal ulcer perforation closure and to ascertain the contribution of releak towards ultimate(More)
Patients with secondary peritonitis often require relaparotomy; however, there is no consensus about the criteria for selecting patients who would benefit from early relaparotomy. Our goal was to evaluate whether elevated intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) during the early postoperative period could predict the need for relaparotomy. A total of 102 consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous disease that commonly affects the nasal and nasopharyngeal mucosa. It rarely presents as disseminated disease. CASE REPORT We describe a rare case of a patient who had undergone treatment for recurrent nasal rhinosporidiosis and who presented with multiple subcutaneous swellings and pulmonary(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Ileal perforation is a serious complication of typhoid fever. The exact reasons for the development of perforation in only a few of those infected with Salmonella Typhi is unknown, and it is likely that immunological factors are involved. Therefore we undertook this study to compare the antibody profile in patients with uncomplicated(More)
