Adventitious rooting is an essential but sometimes rate-limiting step in the clonal multiplication of elite tree germplasm, because the ability to form roots declines rapidly with age in mature adult plant tissues. In spite of the importance of adventitious rooting, the mechanism behind this developmental process remains poorly understood. We have described(More)
The usefulness of selective transplenic decompression of oesophageal varices by distal splenorenal shunt and splenocaval shunt was evaluated in the control of gastrointestinal haemorrhage in patients with portal hypertension of varied aetiology. (Decompression was successful in 69 out of 78 cases.) It was shown that it is superior to total portosystemic(More)
We studied 32 consecutive cases of small-bowel perforations treated in a single surgical unit during the last three years. Clinical features are typical and diagnosis is not difficult. Suprapubic peritoneal paracentesis in head-high position is the most accurate diagnostic investigation. Ultimate results are not related to cause, but are directly(More)
Massive intestinal haemorrhage rarely occurs in amoebic colitis. We report a case of caecal amoebic ulcer in a 61 year old diabetic male who presented with massive lower intestinal haemorrhage requiring blood transfusion and emergency surgical intervention. Histologically, trophozoites of Entamoeba histolytica were seen invading the wall of the submucosal(More)
