BACKGROUND Whereas open anterior inguinal herniorrhaphy is a time-tested, safe, and well-understood operation with a high success rate, laparoscopic techniques of inguinal hernia repair are fairly recent. Consequently, short- and long-term outcomes are still being evaluated. Few studies have compared laparoscopic extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair with(More)
An accessory limb associated with spina bifida was already reported by the authors. We had then described it as a result of a very early splitting of the limb bud arising from the paraxial mesoderm. We have subsequently seen three other such cases, which are described in this report as well as a review of five other cases in the literature. It is proposed(More)
The open technique for the placement of the first trocar in laparoscopic surgery has become the preferred method due to the reduced number of complications associated with it. In 2002 we reported our technique, which has been widely accepted at many centers, including all the units of our hospital. We now report on a series of 6,000 cases in which this(More)
Background: Total extraperitoneal (TEP) laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair is preferred to the transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair since it preserves peritoneal integrity. However, in general it is considered to be more difficult than the latter because of the peculiarity of anatomy and limitation of working space. Therefore it has been assigned(More)
A case of congenital urethroanal fistula with a normal anterior urethra in a male child is reported. The fistula was demonstrated between the prostatic urethra and anorectum. This anomaly is usually associated with an atretic anterior urethra and has been variously described as a variant of a urethral duplication by some authors, and of an anorectal(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Patients with a dilated common bile duct (CBD) and multiple, primary, or recurrent stones are candidates for choledochoduodenostomy. This article reviews our technique and results of laparoscopic choledochoduodenostomy (LCDD) in patients with CBD stones. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Prospectively maintained data of patients with a dilated CBD(More)
Laparoscopic CBD exploration (LCBDE) is an accepted treatment modality for single stage management of CBD stones in fit patients. A transcholedochal approach is preferred in patients with a dilated CBD and large impacted stones in whom ductal clearance remains problematic. There are very few studies comparing intraoperative cholangiography (IOC) with(More)
Malaria has been among the most common infectious diseases in India. The causative microorganism belongs to the Plasmodium family. The four common species that are encountered are Plasmodium falciparum, P. vivax, P. malariae and P. ovale. Plasmodium falciparum infection carries more risk of complications such as cerebral malaria, acute renal failure, liver(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of retroperitoneal laparoscopic pyelolithotomy (RPPL) and its comparison with extra corporeal shock wave lithotripsy in the management of renal calculi. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was carried out in the Department of surgery, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, India. The study included 86(More)
INTRODUCTION There is evidence that the components of the coagulation/fibrinolytic system play a role in cancer biology and angiogenesis. Studies reveal that at the time of diagnosis, majority of the cancer patients have laboratory evidence of systemic coagulation activation. Our purpose was to investigate the significance of D-Dimer (product of fibrin(More)
