We are reporting 12 cases of traumatic bilateral extradural haematomas. The incidence was 4.8% of all cases of extradural haematomas. The most common site was the frontal region. CT scan examination was necessary for early diagnosis. Ten patients were operated upon while one patient was treated conservatively. Two patients died. The relevant literature is(More)
Patients with right or left hemisphere-damage and normal control groups were asked to judge facial emotions from photographs presented in two orientations--upright, inverted. Responses were elicited with a matching and a verbal labelling task. Normal controls were significantly superior in the judgment of facial emotions than left hemisphere-damaged(More)
Patients with unilateral brain damage and normal controls were asked to give (1) inter-emotion judgment within the photographs of six facial emotions in terms of mutual similarities, and (2) intra-emotion judgment within the hemifacial composite photographs of an emotion in terms of intensity of expression. Right brain-damaged patients could differentiate(More)
Vertebral haemangiomas are slowly growing benign tumours and are usually asymptomatic. They rarely cause symptoms and signs related to cord compression. Larger lesions create significant problems during surgery because of haemorrhage and vascular supply crucial to spinal cord function. In such severely symptomatic vertebral haemangiomas, radiation therapy(More)
One-thousand-and-sixty-five pregnant mothers among a rural population of 30,000 in Uttar Pradesh were followed for 1 year. A still birth rate of 26.1 and perinatal mortality rate of 121.1 per thousand births were registered. Early neonatal mortality rate was found to be 97.4 per thousand live births. Twenty per cent of the women were identified with high(More)
Patients with focal brain-damage, right or left hemisphere-damage (RHD/LHD) and anterior or posterior region-damage (ARD/PRD), and normal controls (NC) were asked to match the photographs of (left-right) hemifacial expressions of emotions, positive (happy-surprise), negative-aroused (fear-anger), negative-nonaroused (sad-disgust). Findings indicated that(More)
The effect of the argemone alkaloid, sanguinarine, was studied on the active transport of D-glucose and some of the L-amino acids in everted sacs of the small intestine of rats. Sanguinarine (1.0 mumole) was found to inhibit (61%) the transport of D-glucose, while an alkaloid concentration of 0.1 mumole was ineffective. Both 0.1 and 1.0 mumole of(More)
Treatment of head and neck cancers (HNCs) involves radiotherapy. Patients undergoing radiotherapy for HNCs are prone to dental complications. Radiotherapy to the head and neck region causes xerostomia and salivary gland dysfunction which dramatically increases the risk of dental caries and its sequelae. Radiation therapy (RT) also affects the dental hard(More)
