This study aims to assess quality of life (QoL), functional outcome, and social impact following ileal pouch anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis (UC) and familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) since Indian data is limited. Data was collected prospectively from patients who underwent IPAA for UC or FAP from 2004 to 2013. QoL and functional outcome(More)
Background Level of proximal lymphovascular ligation remains controversial in carcinoma rectum. High-tie inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) claims better lymph node clearance; low-tie IMA minimizes autonomic nerve injury (ANI) and ensures vascularity to anastomosis. Objective of this study is to compare postsurgical complications and oncological clearance in(More)
Gold described a nomogram for prediction of recurrence-free survival (RFS) after surgery for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). This retrospective study was intended to evaluate the utility of this nomogram for predicting a 2-year RFS in our patients. Twenty-eight consecutive eligible patients from January 2009 to January 2013 who underwent R0(More)
When chronic pancreatitis (CP) presents with obstructive jaundice, though there is a risk for malignancy, possibility of benign biliary stricture should also be considered on treatment planning. Imaging and tumour markers have limitations in distinguishing benign and malignant lesions in CP. Here, MRI has effectively picked up a mass lesion as the cause for(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic pancreatitis (CP) found in the tropical countries is known to have a higher risk for carcinoma of the pancreas. This study aimed to explore the clinical profile of pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PanIN), one of the precursors of carcinoma of the pancreas, in tropical CP and to identify the possible clinical predictors of the same.(More)
INTRODUCTION Pancreatic head ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and inflammatory head masses (IHM) related to chronic pancreatitis are often difficult to differentiate. PDAC produces significant inflammatory response with resultant lymphopenia and thrombocytosis. The prognostic role of platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) as a tumor marker has been defined. We aimed(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic Pancreatitis (CP) is a heterogenous disease with alcoholic chronic pancreatitis (ACP) dominating in the West, and idiopathic or tropical chronic pancreatitis (TCP) in the tropics. The aim of this study is to assess the feasibility of using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to analyze the ultra-structural changes in alcoholic and(More)
