PURPOSE To determine the dosimetric and toxicity differences between prone and supine position intensity-modulate radiotherapy in endometrial cancer patients treated with adjuvant radiotherapy. METHODS Forty-seven consecutive endometrial cancer patients treated with adjuvant RT were analyzed. Of these, 21 were treated in prone position and 26 in the(More)
Leukemia cutis, a form of extramedullary leukemia involving the skin, is a poor prognostic marker and indicator of imminent hematologic relapse and chemotherapeutic resistance in leukemia patients. Although total skin electron beam radiotherapy is commonly recommended for patients with leukemia cutis, its role and effectiveness remains unclear. Here we(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess local control and chronic toxicity with IMRT for adjuvant treatment of endometrial carcinoma. METHODS Forty-seven patients with endometrial cancer were treated with adjuvant IMRT and HDR brachytherapy (HDRB). The external beam dose was between 45 and 50.4 Gy, and all patients received 10 Gy in 2 fractions of HDRB to the vaginal cuff.(More)
A study of 58 consecutive Indian infants operated for congenital hypertrophic pyloric stenosis revealed an accentuated male predominance in the incidence of the disease and far less preoperative hemetemesis as compared to that in their Western counterparts. 'Pyloric tumor' was palpable in 89% of cases. Only 34.5% of these infants were first born.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether transcutaneous bilirubin (TcB) from covered skin (TcB-C) during and after discontinuing phototherapy (PHT) is reliable in treating neonatal jaundice. STUDY DESIGN In this prospective observational study, before starting PHT, part of the forehead was covered. TcB-C and TcB from exposed skin (TcB-E) to PHT were measured before(More)
Iminodiacetic acid functionality has been introduced on styrene-divinyl benzene co-polymeric beads and characterized by FT-IR in order to develop weak acid based cation exchange resin. This resin was evaluated for the removal of different heavy metal ions namely Cd(II), Cr(VI), Ni(II) and Pb(II) from their aqueous solutions. The results showed greater(More)
A study of 42 consecutive children with acute intussusception was undertaken. The emphasis was on the time taken for surgical referral in relation to the presenting symptom. Operative findings and outcome revealed late referral (greater than 72 h) in cases presenting with diarrhoea and bleeding per rectum. A higher incidence of gangrenous gut and(More)
