BACKGROUND Serological tests may fail to identify hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection as a cause of liver cirrhosis in a proportion of patients. The frequency of such occult infection in regions with intermediate HBV endemicity is not known. Such cases may be diagnosed by incremental testing for IgG anti-HBc, serum HBV DNA, and HBV DNA in liver tissue. (More)
A case of right superior vena cava draining to both atria, predominantly to the left atrium, with anomalous right pulmonary venous connection to the lower right superior vena cava is reported. The haemodynamic significance of these anomalies is discussed, and the technique of surgical repair is described. The literature on this rare but interesting clinical(More)
A case of successful surgical repair of tetralogy of Fallot with complete atrioventricular canal in 4 year old female child is reported. Double patch technique and combined right atrial and right ventricular (RV) approach were used to repair this defect. The ventricular patch was tailored wide and redundant anteriorly in the form of a sail to prevent(More)
Anomalous pulmonary venous connection of the entire left lung into the left innominate vein is very rare. 5 patients with this anomaly were managed in the authors' institution over the last 12 years. Clinically they were diagnosed as cases of pretricuspid left-to-right shunt at atrial level. Cardiac catheterisation and angiography demonstrated the anomalous(More)
Current conventional chemotherapy for the treatment of hematological malignancies, although quite effective, has associated toxicities to normal tissue and organs, which is still a major dose limiting factor. In addition, high dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation is limited by tumor cell contamination in the stem cell harvest.(More)
Takayasu's arteritis with coronary artery involvement is rare, and there is little published information on the subject. Coronary angiographic and histopathologic studies have revealed coronary artery lesions in 9% to 11% of cases. Coronary artery involvement consists mostly of stenosis or occlusion of the coronary ostia. We report the case of a 19-year-old(More)
Nineteen patients of Thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysm were operated during a nine year period. All were larger than 10 cm. in size. Four were operated in emergency. Seven underwent patch aortoplasty while eleven required tube inlay aortoplasty with visceral vessel reimplantation. One patient continued to be paraplegic postoperatively. Two (10.52%) had(More)
