OBJECTIVE To study the different types of radiological presentations of ABPA in a tertiary clinic in Northern India and analyze them with respect to serological profile and clinical characteristics. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of clinical, serological and radiological characteristics of ABPA patients registered at a unit of tertiary(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the success of buccal mucosal graft (BMG) urethroplasty by the dorsal onlay technique in long anterior urethral stricture (> 2 cm long) through the midline perineal incision. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 1998 to December 2003, 43 patients with long anterior urethral strictures were managed by dorsal onlay BMG urethroplasty. After(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Despite the high prevalence of asthma in children, there has been limited research into patient perception of medication use, particularly in the developing world. This study therefore aimed to carry out an in-depth exploration of the views of carers and children with asthma on asthma medication use. METHODS Grounded theory(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the contemporary socio-clinical profile and perinatal outcome of illicit substance use in pregnancy in a large UK city and compare with published literature. Cases were identified retrospectively from the 'cause for concern' referrals over 5 years (2003-2007). Data was collected on mother-infant pair from medical notes(More)
Drug-induced pulmonary parenchymal disease (DIPPD) can be caused by a variety of agents, including antibiotics, chemotherapeutic drugs, antiarrhythmic agents and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). DIPPD includes acute bronchospasm, organizing pneumonia, alveolar hypoventilation and hypersensitivity reactions. History, physical examination and(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic surgeries have attained the status of a gold standard for most of the abdominal pathology; we therefore performed this study to assess feasibility and safety of major laparoscopic surgeries like laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) and laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH)/total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) under regional(More)
