The Proseal Laryngeal Mask Airway (PLMA) is routinely inserted by the digital and introducer tool techniques but a newer Gum Elastic Bougie (GEB) guided insertion technique has been described. The aims and objectives were to compare the ease of PLMA insertion and fibreoptic view of PLMA after placement using GEB and conventional techniques. Ninety-six ASA I(More)

We present the clinical manifestation, management and outcome in two cases of squamous cell cancer arising in the thyroid gland which is a rare entity. Both cases had advanced disease invading adjacent structures. At the followup of three to six months, one patient developed recurrence and died.

Upper outer quadrentectomy with axillary dissection was done in three patients while modified radical mastectomy was done in one. Primary tumor could be found in three patients, one had squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) & two had infiltrating(More)
