A cross-sectional study on 1206 children (788 boys, 618 girls) aged 1-12 years, belonging to low socioeconomic status, of Barasat and Madhyamgram, West Bengal, India, was undertaken to investigate age and sex variations in height and weight. It also evaluated the levels of underweight and stunting among them. Anthropometric measurements included weight and(More)
Exploitation of crystal symmetry is very important in formulation and efficient simulation of population balance models for crystal morphology. This work presents the first population balance model for morphology distribution considering the diversity of symmetry. In this model, we analyze the symmetry of a population of crystals using group theory and(More)
A new technique for the measurement of 3D crystal morphology and identification of its polymorph using tomo-graphic images is proposed. Confocal microscopy is used for the first time to obtain tomographic images of crystals that are coated with a suitable fluorescent dye. A convex polyhedron is fitted through a stack of tomographic images of a crystal to(More)
Usefulness of sensor network applications in human life is increasing day by day and the concept of wireless connection promises new application areas. Sensor network can be very beneficial in saving human life from terrorist attacks causing explosion in certain areas leading to casualties. But realization of the sensor network application in explosive(More)
BACKGROUND Maintenance of adequate depth of anaesthesia in spine surgery is vital to prevent awareness, to reduce stress response and possible autonomic instability frequently associated with spine surgery. Dexmedetomidine, a α2-adrenoceptor agonist with analgesic and sedative adjuvant property has been found to reduce dose requirement of multiple(More)
We present here a case of 17-year-old boy from Kolkata presenting with obesity, bilateral gynecomastia, mental retardation, and hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism. The patient weighed 70 kg and was of 153 cm height. Facial asymmetry (unilateral facial palsy), gynecomastia, decreased pubic and axillary hair, small penis, decreased right testicular volume,(More)
Motor neuron disease (MND) typically affects upper and lower motor neurons without any sensory involvement. Regional anaesthesia is preferred in motor neuron disease patients to avoid aspiration and possibility of prolonged postoperative ventilation following general anaesthesia. As microlaryngeal surgery in a motor neuron disease patient needed airway(More)
Head and neck cancers constitute a multifactorial global disease burden and are associated with human papilloma virus (HPV) as a possible risk factor. The aim of the study is to understand the relationship between HPV and the development of head and neck lesions in Indian patients. To this end, frequency of HPV was assessed in relation to different(More)
