OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of 2 different α-1 blockers and 1 phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor as medical expulsive therapy for distal ureteric calculi. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 2011 and December 2012, 285 patients presenting with distal ureteric stones of size 5-10 mm were on consent randomly assigned to 1 of 3 outpatient treatment arms:(More)
PURPOSE We present a randomized study of tubeless or nephrostomy-free percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), a modification of the standard technique, compared with standard PCNL to evaluate the role of tubeless PCNL in minimizing postoperative discomfort and reducing duration of hospital stay. PATIENTS AND METHODS Two hundred and two patients undergoing(More)
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has become an alternative tool for a variety of spinal conditions as this approach minimises much morbidity related to conventional thoracotomy. The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of VATS and its long-term results in patients with dorsal spinal tuberculosis. This retrospective long-term(More)
In the evidence-based medicine era, objective treatment guidelines have been laid down for pulmonary tuberculosis, but the same is not true for osteoarticular tuberculosis. This has led to demands for standardising the treatment protocol and to a lack of consensus between doctors regarding the composition and duration of treatment. Twenty-five patients with(More)
The World Health Organisation has declared tuberculosis (TB) a global emergency and spinal tuberculosis is one of the most common forms. There is still controversy regarding optimum duration of treatment in osteoarticular tuberculosis due to the lack of well-defined criteria for the end point of treatment. Emergence of multi drug resistant tuberculosis,(More)
PURPOSE Placement of multiple nephrostomy tubes is the standard practice after completion of multitract percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for complex/staghorn calculi. We conducted a study to see whether use of a single nephrostomy tube in comparison with multiple tubes reduces postoperative discomfort without compromising safety of the procedure. (More)
BACKGROUND Loss of dorsiflexion is a common problem in cases where an external fixator or Ilizarov assembly is applied. It results in functional impairment of the foot by affecting the swing phase of gait cycle. We devised a simple dynamic dorsiflexion assist splint for prevention, correction of equinus/cavus deformity and maintenance of normal dorsiflexion(More)
Muscle abscess presenting as nerve palsy is rare and has not been previously reported in the common peroneal nerve (CPN). The objective of this case report is to describe the diagnosis and treatment of an uncommon presentation of peroneal abscess in the leg of an otherwise healthy man. We present a case of CPN palsy in a 50-year-old immunocompetent man with(More)
Syphilis outbreaks in the United States have been reported since 2000 with highest rates in the South and many cases among HIV-infected individuals. We evaluated incident syphilis cases and concurrent gonorrhea and chlamydia screening at a southern HIV clinic. A retrospective cohort study included HIV-infected patients with at least one reactive plasma(More)
Intertrochanteric fracture is a common injury of increasing geriatric population. Dynamic hip screw (DHS) is one of the commonly used implants used for the internal fixation of intertrochanteric fractures. Use of standard plate by a minimally invasive technique is both possible and advantageous to patient outcome in these fractures by allowing a smaller(More)
