Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea occurs due to communication between the intracranial subarachnoid space and the sinonasal mucosa. It could be due to trauma, raised intracranial pressure (ICP), tumors, erosive diseases, and congenital skull defects. Some leaks could be spontaneous without any specific etiology. The potential leak sites include the(More)
The Escherichia coli biotin ligase enzyme BirA has been extensively used in recent years to generate site-specifically biotinylated proteins via a biotin acceptor peptide tag. In the present study, BirA was displayed for the first time on the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae using the Aga1p-Aga2p platform and assayed using a peptide-tagged protein as the(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the feasibility of laparoscopy in the treatment of pediatric urolithiasis, we report our experience with the transperitoneal laparoscopic removal of stones. METHOD Renal pelvic stones of size ≥1 cm on ultrasound were included for laparoscopic pyelolithotomy while smaller stones were managed with shock-wave lithotripsy monotherapy.(More)
Although endoscopic techniques have many advantages including improved visualizations and magnification., these are also associated with limitations. Objective of this study is to discuss practical aspects that can reduce complications after endoscopic procedures, and their management. Review is based on personal experience of more than 2000 neuroendoscopic(More)
INTRODUCTION Superficial abdominal reflex (SAR) is an important part of the neurologic assessment. It is normally present and may be present or absent in various physiological as well as pathological conditions. The presence of an abdominal incision creates a dilemma in the mind of the clinician for it affecting this reflex. As there is no literature on(More)
Introduction Posterior midline laminectomy is associated with risks of postoperative instability, spinal deformity, extensive bilateral subperiosteal muscle stripping, partial or total facetectomy especially in foraminal tumor extension, increased cerebrospinal fluid leakage, and wound infection. Minimally invasive approaches with the help of a microscope(More)
INTRODUCTION Neurosurgery is a branch having a tough learning curve. Residents generally get very less hands-on exposure for advanced procedures like neuroendoscopy. With the limited number of cadavers available and ethical issues associated with animal models, practice models, and simulators are becoming the able alternative. Most of these simulators are(More)
Infratemporal fossa masses are rare. The largest series is probably of Fisch describing his approaches in 51 patients.1 There are numerous approaches for these masses with their own pros and cons. For instance, Fisch type C2 approach provides good exposure but is associated with permanent hearing loss. Preauricular transzygomatic, maxillary swing,3 and(More)
