BACKGROUND Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a simple and rapid diagnostic technique. Because of early availability of results, simplicity, minimal trauma and complications, the aspiration cytology is now considered a valuable diagnostic aid and is part and parcel of a pathologist's repertoire. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate the(More)
INTRODUCTION Cysticercosis is the larval manifestation of the cestode T. solium. It commonly presents as subcutaneous and intramuscular nodules which is often clinically misinterpreted as benign mesenchymal lesions and lymph nodes. Cysticerci in subcutaneous nodules can be diagnosed rapidly and with considerable accuracy by FNAC. This study highlights the(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy and efficacy of Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in various salivary gland swellings. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study was performed at Kathmandu Medical College Teaching Hospital (KMCTH) from January 2004- December 2006.During this period a total of 978 FNAC's(More)
OBJECTIVES The cytological findings of 50 ST Ts were evaluated aiming to determine the role of FNA in diagnosis of STTs METHODS Fifty patients with soft tissue tumours underwent FNA in the preoperative investigation during a one year period. The smears were stained with Papanicolaou and May-Graunvald Giemsa stains. RESULTS Forty-four cases were reported(More)
Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPM) is a rare neoplasm of the peritoneum, causally related to asbestos exposure. Nonspecific symptoms with a late diagnosis results in poor survival (<1 year). Treatment with cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy has improved survival in some patients (median 3-5 years). Hence, new therapies(More)
Background: Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma (MPM) is a rare asbestos related peritoneal neoplasm. Survival is normally poor however, cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy has increased survival in some patients. Hence, new therapies are needed. MUC1 is a glycosylation dependant protein associated with tumour invasiveness,(More)
OBJECTIVES The main objective of this study was to assess antral brush cytology as an alternate approach for the diagnosis of H. pylori infection as compared to histopathology. METHODS 75 cases with diagnosis of antral gastritis underwent endoscopic antral biopsy as well as antral brushing cytology was included irrespective of age and sex. Cytological(More)

This is a retrospective study of all the cases of ovarian cysts operated in a tertiary hospital (Kathmandu Medical College, KMC) from January 2006 to December 2008. In this 3 years duration, 102 cases (2.0%) were of ovarian cyst(More)
Thermal ablation of liver tumors near large blood vessels is affected by the cooling effect of blood flow, leading to incomplete ablation. Hence, we conducted a comparative investigation of heat sink effect in monopolar (MP) and bipolar (BP) radiofrequency ablation (RFA), and microwave (MW) ablation devices.With a perfused calf liver, the ablative(More)
