Ciliates of the Silent Valley National Park, India: Urostyloid Hypotrichs of the Region with a Note on the Habitat
Urostyloid ciliates from diverse ecozones within the core zone of the Silent Valley National Park are described, including six species of the urostyloids, including Anteholosticha angida n.sp. Expand
Modified and conventional ultrafiltration during pediatric cardiac surgery: clinical outcomes compared.
Clinical outcomes after heart surgery between three groups of infants with congenital heart disease were similar across groups, and relative risks of the ultrafiltration strategies may influence choice. Expand
Morphology, morphogenesis, and molecular phylogeny of Sterkiella tetracirrata n. sp. (Ciliophora, Oxytrichidae), from the Silent Valley National Park, India.
The morphology and morphogenesis during cell division of Sterkiella tetracirrata n. sp., isolated from a soil sample collected from the Silent Valley National Park, Kerala, India, were investigatedExpand
(Shi, Warren and Song 2002) nov. comb. (Ciliophora: Hypotrichida): morphology and ontogenesis of an Indian population; redefinition of the genus
On the basis of its morphological and morphogenetic features P. curdsi qualifies to be an oxytrichid sensu stricto, however, the presence of 20 FVT cirri in this species is a non-conforming feature as all other members of this group have been reported to possess 18 or 18. Expand
Postoperative Analgesia After Spinal Blockade in Infants and Children Undergoing Cardiac Surgery
Patients in the SAB+REMI group had significantly lower pain scores and received less IV fentanyl than those in the REMI group, and there were no intergroup differences in adverse effects, including hypotension, bradycardia, highest PaCO2, lowest pH, episodes of oxygen desaturation, pruritus, and vomiting.

Surgical algorithm and results for repair of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aortopulmonary collaterals
The data demonstrate that more than 90% of patients with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries achieved complete repair and the overall mortality was significantly lower in the subgroup of patients who underwent single‐stage complete repair. Expand
Paraurosomoida indiensis gen. nov., sp. nov., an oxytrichid (Ciliophora, Hypotricha) from Kyongnosla Alpine Sanctuary, including note on non-oxytrichid Dorsomarginalia.
Molecular analyses consistently place P. indiensis with soft bodied oxytrichids, and morphology, morphogenesis, and molecular phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA sequence are consistent. Expand
Stylonychia ammermanni* sp. n., a New Oxytrichid (Ciliophora: Hypotrichida) Ciliate from the River Yamuna, Delhi, India
A comparison of various morphometric characters (size, shape and cirral pattern) with the other two described species of the S. mytilus-lemnae complex reveals that S. ammermanni sp. Expand
Morphology and cell division of the oxytrichids Architricha indica nov. gen., nov. sp., and Histriculus histrio (Müller, 1773), Corliss, 1960 (Ciliophora, Hypotrichida).
The oxytrichid ciliate Architricha indica nov. gen., nov. sp., isolated from the river Yamuna, Delhi, shows a new combination of characters. It possesses a flexible body, 18Expand
Notohymena saprai sp. nov, a new oxytrichid ciliate (Protozoa, Ciliophora) from the Valley of Flowers, a Himalayan bioreserve region; description and morphogenesis of the new species
A new oxytrichid ciliate Notohymena saprai sp. nov was isolated from the Valley of Flowers, an isolated bioreserve in the upper Himalayas. The ciliate was found in the soil samples collected from theExpand
