One hundred and twenty methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains were checked for minimum inhibitory concenteration (MIC) of vancomycin. The results showed that 98 strains (81.7 %) had MIC < 4microg/mL, 18 strains (15 %) had MIC 8 microg/mL, and 4 (03.3%) had MIC 16 microg/mL which being borderline between sensitive (< 4microg/mL) and(More)
We report a rare case of a patient with a primary hydatid cyst in the head of the pancreas who presented with obstructive jaundice caused by extrinsic compression of the intrapancreatic portion of the bile duct. The patient was treated successfully by ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage of the cyst using hypertonic (20%) saline as the scolicidal agent(More)
BACKGROUND Haemosuccus pancreaticus is a rare complication of pancreatitis. It is a diagnostic problem for even the most astute clinician and a challenge for the expert endoscopist. We report a 25-year-old male patient who had all the features usually seen in haemosuccus pancreaticus patients: recurrent obscure upper gastrointestinal bleeding, pancreatitis,(More)
The association between congenital vascular malformations and altered bone growth, the so-called vascular bone syndrome, is well documented. Various eponymous syndromes each with their individual traits, such as Klippel-Trenaunay, Parkes-Weber and Servelle-Martorell syndrome have been described, along with variations. We report on a previously undescribed(More)
A set of 8 microsatellites was developed for a freshwater fish chush snowtrout, Schizopyge niger. Chush snowtrout is an endemic fish to Kashmir valley, India. Constructing a partial genomic library, we obtained 36 clones containing putative microsatellite motifs and 12 microsatellite with enough flanking sequence for primer designing. The number of alleles(More)
The distribution, abundance, ecology, and diversity of macro-zoobenthos in Lidder stream, a major tributary of the river Jhelum of Kashmir Himalaya was investigated for one year. The study was carried at three zones (upstream, midstream and downstream) of varied topography and physical characteristics. The habitat of each zone was determined with respect to(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Lumbosacral defects are complex reconstructive problems requiring tension-free vascularised soft tissue reconstruction in patients who often have comorbidities. In an area prone to recurrent tissue breakdown, both free and islanded flaps risk complete failure. Cadaveric studies have demonstrated the consistency of lumbar perforators, yet(More)
A 45 year old man presented with recurrent hypokalaemic paralysis. Laboratory investigations revealed renal tubular acidosis as the cause of the hypokalaemia, and dynamic tubular studies suggested a gradient defect as the underlying cause. The patient had associated dextrocardia. To our knowledge, this is the first report of this condition.
This paper reports on the treatment of chemical burns in a burns unit in Saudi Arabia in the 10-yr period 1993 to 2003. In 1993, in line with new approaches, the protocol for treating deep chemical burns in the first 48 h was modified to employ sequential excision followed by a second-look approach after 24 h, at which stage autografts/homografts were(More)
