To determine the neonatal body measurement that best predicts insertional umbilical catheter lengths, we studied two commonly used parameters--shoulder-to-umbilicus length and total body length--and two new parameters--suprasternal notch-pubic symphysis length and birth weight (BW)--on 43 umbilical artery (UA) and ten umbilical vein (UV) catheterizations.(More)
BACKGROUND Invasion and metastasis are the most strenuous problems in the management of breast cancer. These events require diverse proteolytic enzymes, among which MMP-2 and MMP-9 play a significant role in degradation of type IV collagen, the major component of the basement membrane. Therefore, the major objective of the study is to evaluate the clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE To create a simple and accurate method of predicting the correct insertional length of endotracheal intubation during resuscitation of neonates. STUDY DESIGN Phase I of the study enrolled infants that required either orotracheal or nasotracheal intubations. The endotracheal tube position was confirmed by auscultation and radiographic images.(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the clinical behavior of rare sinonasal malignancies. METHODS Clinical data from the cases of rare sinonasal malignancies at Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute during 2001-2007 were extracted. Data for histologic type of tumor, tumor stage and survival were analyzed. RESULTS Eighty-nine cases of the non-squamous cell(More)
In a study involving 25 preterm infants, obstetric clinical age (standard gestational age) was determined by history, physical examination, and ultrasonographic evaluation. Postnatally, these infants were then evaluated using the Dubowitz Scoring System (DSS) for gestational age assessment. The DSS, as administered by us, significantly overestimated(More)
Gender-specific newborn rats were randomized into two treatment groups: experimental (received steroid) and control (administered normal saline). Steroid treatment was initiated on 2nd day of life. Hydrocortisone sodium succinate at 10 mg/kg was administered intraperitoneally every 12 hours for four doses. On 3rd day of life, after the last dosage, all rats(More)
To evaluate the relationship of serum cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and brain total bilirubin levels in asphyxia, an experiment was designed with 5 to 6-week-old Sprague-Dawley rats. The rats were randomized into control and experimental groups. All rats received intravenously 30 mg/kg of bilirubin. Four hours later the experimental group was asphyxiated.(More)
