Frontonasal encephaloceles involve herniation of meninges and brain tissue through defects in the floor of the anterior cranial fossa affecting the frontal, ethmoid and nasal bones. Subependymal nodular heterotopias are malformations of cortical development resulting from abnormal neuronal migration. This report describes the coexistence and association of(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have reported the differential physiological and psychological effects of yogic uninostril breathing (UNB) and alternate nostril breathing (ANB) techniques. This study aims to determine differential effects of these techniques on reaction time (RT), heart rate (HR), and blood pressure (BP). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty(More)
The authors describe imaging patterns of intracranial metastases in 2 children with grade 4 neuroblastoma. Central nervous system metastases from neuroblastoma are extremely rare and may involve the cerebral parenchyma, leptomeninges, or dura. Cerebral parenchymal metastases can be cystic with mural nodules or solid with hemorrhagic elements. The first(More)
CASE REPORT A 3-day-old baby was referred to our institution with seizures since birth and a presumptive diagnosis of cerebral tumor detected by prenatal ultrasound. Computed tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging performed immediately after birth revealed the presence of an enhancing mass in the left cerebral hemisphere. DISCUSSION The(More)
INTRODUCTION This study planned to compare immediate cardiovascular effects of different yoga asanas in healthy young volunteers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Heart rate (HR), systolic pressure (SP), and diastolic pressure (DP), blood pressure (BP), were recorded using the non invasive blood pressure (NIBP) apparatus in 22 healthy young subjects, before and(More)
Solitary fibrous tumours are rare spindle cell tumours that generally arise from the pleura but on rare occasions arise in other locations such as the head and neck region, stomach and retroperitoneum. Very few reports exist on the imaging findings of these tumours in extra pleural sites such as the mesentery. We report the computed tomography (CT) imaging(More)
This report describes the case of a 50-year-old woman with carcinomatous meningitis from squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix. Ultrasound showed an irregular hypoechoic mass in the cervix. Contrast enhanced computed tomography imaging revealed intense linear enhancement along the falx cerebri suggestive of pachymeningeal metastasis with involvement(More)
PURPOSE Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) is a widely used medical imaging modality for diagnosis and monitoring of cerebral stroke. The identification of exact location of stroke lesion helps in perceiving its characteristics, an essential part of diagnosis and treatment planning. This task is challenging due to the typical shape of the stroke lesion. This(More)

Our study is to compare the effect of 10 meter walk test on unilateral Transtibial amputees those who are using conventional and modular patellar tendon bearing (PTB) prosthesis with stump exercises. The effect of 10 meter walk test as an outcome measure to assess the time duration to walk the 10 meter distance by the unilateral transtibial amputees on the(More)
Aims and Objectives: To compare the effect of anxiety and depression on unilateral trans tibial amputees those who are using conventional and modular patellar tendon bearing (PTB) prosthesis with stump exercises. Material and Methods: A sample of 40 persons with below knee amputation who were trained to wear pros-thesis were studied with an experimental(More)
