OBJECTIVE To evaluate the short-term effect of frequency of complementary feeding on total ad libitum consumption in breast fed infants. METHODS Twenty infants between 6 to 10 months of age were studied in a tertiary hospital in New Delhi for 48 hours. A traditional gruel made of rice and pulses (mean (SD) caloric density 54.22 (7.08) kcal/100 g) was(More)
Intramedullary spinal epidermoid cysts are rare, with only few cases having been reported in the literature. We are reporting a case of a 10-year-old female child who presented with symptoms of meningitis with progressive paraparesis. Magnetic resonance imaging of the spine revealed an intramedullary epidermoid cyst from C6 to D5. Near-total excision of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Multiple techniques and modalities of fixation are used in Anterior Cervical Discectomy and interbody Fusion (ACDF), each with some merit and demerit against others. Such pool of techniques reflects lack of a consensus method conducive to uniformly good results. AIM A prospective study was done to analyse safety and efficacy of tricortical(More)
Inordinate administration of Vitamin D beyond required doses and duration occurs as a sporadic event among frequent empirical therapies of pharmacological Vitamin D. Such instances lead to Vitamin D intoxication. Systemic hypertension is an unsuspected after-effect of Vitamin D toxicity in a child unlike other toxicity effects such as hypercalcemia,(More)
We describe a muscle sparing approach in which the triceps is elevated without injuring the muscle or disturbing its insertion. The entire extensor mechanism is preserved in continuity, thus preventing any extensor weakness. This can be used preferentially in cases of non-union intraarticular distal humerus fractures planned for Total Elbow Arthroplasty.
Lesser trochanter fractures are rare in adult bones. Few cases have been reported in the literature. When fracture of lesser trochanter is met in patients with closed growth plates, it is likely to be precursor of a silent neoplastic process. A case of lesser trochanter fracture in middle aged female with traumatic aetiology is presented here, which came(More)
PURPOSE Scarf is a long loose piece of cloth worn around the neck and shoulder. Despite cultural association of this apparel, it is part of numerous injury episodes of varying enormity. Entanglement of loose scarf in spoke wheels of bike, tricycle, belt driven machines like sugarcane juice machine, thresher, grinding machines, etc is observed both in social(More)
The purpose of this randomized study was to compare clinical and surgical outcomes of total knee replacements (TKRs) in the early postoperative period using midvastus approach versus medial parapatellar approach in Asian population in a double blind manner. Forty-two knees each were operated using midvastus approach and the medial parapatellar approach.(More)
Pyogenic spinal epidural abscess Is an uncommon Infectious occurrence. Clinical prospects of pyogenic spinal epidural abscess are graver if not promptly diagnosed and treated appropriately. A case of spinal epidural abscess has been presented with sinus tract formation at L4-L5 level, of pyogenic aetiology that progressed to paraplegia over the course of(More)
