Twenty-two patients with unreduced hip dislocation or fracture dislocation were prospectively evaluated. Intraosseous aspiration, marrow fluid analysis and core biopsy histological analysis was performed from the supero-lateral (test group) and central part (control group) of the femoral head. After appropriate surgical treatment and postoperative(More)
Hepatic artery infusion (HAI) has been used to take advantage of the steep dose-response relationship characteristic of chemotherapeutic agents. Systemic toxicity, however, remains the dose limiting factor for HAI of low hepatic extraction drugs. This investigation compared the pharmacokinetics of doxorubicin administered using a system that combines HAI(More)
Hepatic artery infusion (HAI) chemotherapy has been used to treat patients with unresectable liver tumours. We report a preclinical study of the pharmacokinetics of HAI combined with hepatic venous drug extraction (HVDE) for regional administration of doxorubicin. HVDE was aided by a double balloon catheter inserted via femoral vein cutdown into the(More)
We investigated the in vitro efficacy of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) and alpha-tocopherol succinate (alpha-TS) alone and in combination on the induction of cell death in freshly isolated leukemic cells obtained from chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. In vitro cytotoxicity and induction of lipid peroxidation by ATRA (10 microM) and alpha-TS (25 or(More)
Results from the multicentre randomized trial of CHART (continuous, hyperfractionated, accelerated radiotherapy) in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) showed a significant increase in survival (P=0.004) compared with conventional radiotherapy and a therapeutic benefit relative to late radiation-induced morbidity. However, 60% of patients died because of(More)
A swine model was developed to study quantitatively the pharmacokinetics of hepatic extraction and clearance of doxorubicin (DOX). Systemic and hepatic artery infusions of DOX (0.5-9 mg kg-1) were administered to 34 pigs. Pharmacokinetic analysis was simplified by use of a double-balloon catheter in the inferior vena cava to collect hepatic venous effluent.(More)
PURPOSE To study the outcome of in-the-bag implanted square-edge polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) intraocular lenses (IOL) with and without primary posterior capsulotomy in pediatric traumatic cataract. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was undertaken in a tertiary care center. Thirty eyes of 30 children ranging in age from 4 to 16 years with traumatic(More)
The purpose is to study the ability of an event-based analysis of retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) attenuation measured by Stratus(®) optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to detect progression across the spectrum of glaucoma. Adult glaucoma suspects, ocular hypertensives and glaucoma patients who had undergone baseline RNFL thickness measurement on(More)
BACKGROUND We studied the demographic profile and outcome of traumatic cataract after penetrating and blunt ocular trauma in children in northern India. METHODS We reviewed the medical records of children with penetrating and blunt ocular trauma associated with traumatic cataract who underwent cataract surgery with posterior chamber intraocular lens(More)
Both iron deficiency anaemia and dyslipidaemia are widely prevalent public health problems, especially in the Indian population. Some link has been suggested between the two potentially morbid conditions but a sufficient Indian study could not be found in this regard. This study was planned to find the changes in serum lipid profile in adult Indian patients(More)
