We studied the fluctuations in phenytoin (PHT) levels during ovulatory and menstrual phases of the cycle, in eight patients with catamenial epilepsy and in eight age-matched controls. Pharmacokinetic studies of PHT were done in five patients with catamenial epilepsy. The difference in PHT levels during menstrual and ovulatory phase in catamenial group was(More)

BACKGROUND Cervical smears exhibiting unequivocal features of 'low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion' (LSIL) are occasionally also admixed with some cells suspicious for, but not diagnostic of, 'high grade squamous intraepithelial lesion' (HSIL). Only a few studies, mostly reported as abstracts, have evaluated this concurrence. In this study, we(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Mixing adjuvants with hyperbaric bupivacaine in a single syringe before injecting the drugs intrathecally is an age old practice. In doing so, the density of the hyperbaric solution and also of the adjuvant drugs may be altered, thus affecting the spread of drugs. Administering local anaesthetic and the adjuvants separately may minimise(More)

OBJECTIVES We evaluated the effect of metabolic syndrome (a risk factor for the development of coronary artery disease) on survival in patients with established coronary artery disease. METHODS Survival was determined for 2886 patients with coronary artery disease diagnosed by cardiac catheterization performed between 1990 and 2005 at a Department of(More)
OBJECTIVE Dilated cardiomyopathy is an important cause of cardiac failure in both children and adults, but is more progressive in children. In adult dilated cardiomyopathy, left ventricular remodelling is associated with changes in the plasma levels of matrix metalloproteinases and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases. Plasma matrix metalloproteinases and(More)
