BACKGROUND There are numerous methods for calculation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), which is a crucial measurement to identify patients with renal disease. AIMS The aim of this study is to compare four different methods of GFR calculation. SETTINGS AND DESIGN Clinical setup, prospective study. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data was collected from(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The adverse effect of acute hepatitis A in chronic liver disease is well known. The outcome of acute hepatitis E in chronic liver disease has not been extensively studied. The present study aimed to examine the clinical profile and outcome of patients with chronic liver disease and hepatitis E virus (HEV) superinfection, and the(More)
In this article, we describe an unusual presentation of osteoid osteoma of the lumbar vertebra in a woman in her early 30s. Single-photon emission computed tomography/low-resolution computed tomography (SPECT/CT) fusion imaging was used to detect the osteoma, precisely localize the pathology site, and guide surgical excision of the lesion. In recent years,(More)
Paraneoplastic polyarthritis is a rare manifestation described in association with various solid tumours. We describe the clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, differential diagnosis, and management of a 28-year-old woman who presented with fever, weight loss, and symmetrical polyarthritis, subsequently diagnosed to have a metastatic neuroendocrine(More)
Primary hyperparathyroidism is a rare cause of acute pancreatitis. Five consecutive patients with acute or recurrent acute pancreatitis and primary hyperparathyroidism were included. All patients had elevated serum calcium on admission and high levels of circulating parathyroid hormone. Both ultrasonography and Sestamibi scan was used to localize(More)
This paper demonstrates the mitigation of power quality issues in a grid connected wind energy conversion system using UPFC. The procedure to compensate the power quality issues like voltage sag and harmonics are presented. A Frame work for 25 bus test system is developed in the ETAP & load flow analysis &harmonic analysis is performed. It is observed that(More)
Iodine-131 metaiodobenzyl guanidine ((131)I-MIBG) is routinely used for imaging and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NET). As the commercially available radiopharmaceutical was very expensive, we developed an in-house method of labeling MIBG with (131)I in 1993. A total of 247 batches of (131)I-MIBG were prepared and used in our hospital between April(More)
BACKGROUND Oncogenic osteomalacia is an acquired form of hypophosphatemic osteomalacia where the tumour resection may lead to cure of the disease. Tumours originating from the musculoskeletal region form an important subgroup of oncogenic osteomalacia. METHODS This was a retrospective study conducted at a tertiary care centre in south India where we(More)
INTRODUCTION 18 Fluorine-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emis-sion tomography/computed tomography (18F- FDG-PET/CT) is of importance in assessing high-risk thymoma and thymic carcinomas. Detection of advanced thymoma versus thymic carcinoma by routine cross sectional anatomical imaging such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) often(More)
