Hearing aid fitment is a routine, usually safe procedure carried out by hearing aid technicians or even audiologists. Hearing aids are often considered the benign, non-surgical alternative to rehabilitate a patient who cannot be helped surgically. It is rare to have to resort surgery to manage a complication resulting from hearing aid fitting. We report(More)
In this, study, an attempt has been made to find out if the age of the child is a factor in influencing the surgical outcome of tympanoplasty. The study group comprises 52 children, divided into two subgroups; 8-11 years and 12-15 years. The success is defined as an intact tympanic membrane after 6 months of surgery.

fer with a diagnosis of gastrointestinal bleeding from a duodenal diverticulum. An apparent bleeding diverticulum was visualized on repeat endoscopy at the junction of the second and third part of the duodenum (l" Figure 1). Computed tomography scan revealed a large (15 ” 10 cm) heterogeneous centrally hemor− rhagic mass in the right anterior parare− nal(More)
Background:Germline mutations within DNA-repair genes are implicated in susceptibility to multiple forms of cancer. For prostate cancer (PrCa), rare mutations in BRCA2 and BRCA1 give rise to moderately elevated risk, whereas two of ∼100 common, low-penetrance PrCa susceptibility variants identified so far by genome-wide association studies implicate RAD51B(More)
Filtering data in real-time requires dedicated hardware to meet demanding time requirements. If the statistics of the signal are not known, then digital filtering algorithms can be implemented to estimate the signals statistics iteratively. Modern field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) include the resources needed to design efficient filtering structures.(More)
Chronic otitis media is a major contributor to acquired hearing loss in developing countries. Developing countries such as India, with huge populations and poor health infrastructures, have always felt the shortage of trained specialists who can provide quality care to meet the enormous demand for treatment of this disease. This pilot study assessed the(More)
Objective: To determine the impact of Lean Sigma (LS) on waiting time of patients at different stations of outpatient department (OPD), pre-surgical area and operation room (OR). Methods: In this prospective quality study Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control (DMAIC) model of lean sigma was used for improvement. Lead time of patients during measure(More)
PURPOSE To examine whether carbogen and nicotinamide increases 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) delivery to colorectal cancer metastases. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Six patients were scanned using positron emission tomography. Two scans were done to coincide with the start of separate chemotherapy cycles. At the second positron emission tomography session, 60 mg/kg(More)
