Ayurveda, the Indian system of traditional medicine, uses a concoction of several spices, herbs and minerals for the treatment of diseases. In a clinical prospective study we have evaluated the efficacy of Ayurveda treatment (a concoction in cow's milk of powdered Mucuna pruriens and Hyoscyamus reticulatus seeds and Withania somnifera and Sida cordifolia(More)
Computerized tomography (CT) is widely used in the diagnostic work-up of epilepsy. However, there are only scant reports of transient postictal CT abnormalities. Three patients who presented with elementary partial seizures and manifested transient CT findings are presented. The need for an adequate ictus-free period for CT evaluation of seizure disorders(More)
Psychiatric disorder was studied in 62 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (study group) and 70 patients with grand mal epilepsy (control group), both diagnosed electroencephalographically. The two groups were similar as regards age, sex, socio-economic status, duration and frequency of fits, family history and premorbid personality. A significantly(More)
In the group mutual exclusion problem, each critical section has a type or a group associated with it. Processes requesting critical sections belonging to the same group (that is, of the same type) may execute their critical sections concurrently. However, processes requesting critical sections belonging to different groups (that is, of different types)(More)
In the group mutual exclusion problem, each critical section has a type or a group associated with it. Processes requesting critical sections of the same type may execute their critical sections concurrently. However, processes requesting critical sections of different types must execute their critical sections in a mutually exclusive manner. Most(More)
Six cases of bacterial intracavernous carotid artery aneurysms of extravascular origin secondary to cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis are reported along with a review of 12 similar cases collected from the literature. Of the authors' six cases, there were three children and three adults. Meningitis was found in five patients. All patients received prolonged(More)
Thirty-two cases of juvenile and adult onset, non-familial, spinal, segmental muscular atrophy seen in two widely separated geographical regions of India were studied over the last 15 years. The characteristic features were: the non-familial, non-endemic nature, the strictly segmental distribution from the clinical and EMG point of view, which involved(More)
Twenty patients with Tropical Pancreatic Diabetes (TPD) were evaluated by Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials (BAEP) in order to detect any possible subclinical involvement of auditory pathways. The latencies of BAEP Wave III (p < 0.009) and V (p < 0.47) as well as the Interpeak Latencies I-III (p < 0.002), and I-V (p < 0.019) were significantly prolonged(More)
Brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs) have been used to detect early and even asymptomatic brain ischemia. There is a need to detect subclinical brain and/or spinal cord ischemia in patients with aortoarteritis so that ischemic deficits can be prevented by early intervention. We studied multimodality (Visual evoked potentials--VEPs, Somatosensory(More)
Visual impairment is an important complication of diabetes. There are conflicting reports on Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) changes in diabetes. P100 latency of VEP was evaluated in twenty patients with Tropical Pancreatic Diabetes (TPD) and compared with that of age and sex matched controls. There was no statistically significant difference in the P100(More)
