Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has been one of the revolutionary discoveries in the world of science leading to cure of many of the hematological malignancies and for several nonmalignant conditions. It involves harvesting of stem cells from either the bone marrow most traditionally, peripheral blood or umbilical cord and then transplanting(More)
INTRODUCTION Diabetes mellitus is an established risk factor for congestive cardiac failure in which the diastolic function is impaired earlier than the systolic function and majority of these patients maybe asymptomatic without signs of overt heart failure. METHODS A cross sectional hospital based study was done which included 100 asymptomatic patients(More)
INTRODUCTION Inadequate dialysis accounts for the high mortality in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD). In Nepal, due to various factors including financial and logistic limitations, hemodialysis is mostly performed twice-a-week. This study was undertaken to look at adequacy of dialysis in patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis in Nepal(More)
BACKGROUND In persons with diabetes, chronic hyperglycemia (assessed by glycosylated hemoglobin level) is related to the development of microvascular disease; however, the relation of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) to macrovascular disease is less clear. OBJECTIVE To study the association of cardiovascular events (CVE) with glycosylated haemoglobin in(More)
BACKGROUND Left ventricular hypertrophy is a forerunner of coronary heart disease, congestive cardiac failure, stroke and may also lead to sudden death. Estimation of left ventricular mass by echocardiography offers prognostic information better than the evaluation of traditional cardiovascular risk factors. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to(More)
Myxedema coma, a rare entity in 21st century in developed nations, is a decompensated phase of hypothyroidism with high mortality rates. We describe a young woman with myxedema, who developed respiratory failure, congestive heart failure and significant pericardial effusion, some of the uncommon manifestations. Decreased cardiac contractility can result in(More)
The <i>National e-Governance Plan</i> (NeGP) of India aims at making all government services accessible to the citizens through common service delivery outlets. It also seeks to ensure efficiency, transparency, and reliability of such services at affordable costs. A huge nationwide ICT infrastructure comprising of more than one lakh Common Service Centres(More)
INTRODUCTION The time of presentation of acute coronary syndrome from the onset of chest pain determines the treatment modality and prognosis. Delayed presentation is associated with a poor outcome. In the present study, we tried to find out the causes of late presentation of ACS in a tertiary care center in the eastern part of Nepal. METHODS It was a(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the influence of preload reduction by haemodialysis on Doppler echocardiographic indices of cardiac diastolic function. METHODOLOGY Parameters of left ventricular diastolic function were measured in patients with end-stage renal disease before and after a single session of haemodialysis. Patients with valvular heart disease, coronary(More)
