Portal cavernoma cholangiopathy (PCC) is defined as abnormalities in the extrahepatic biliary system including the cystic duct and gallbladder with or without abnormalities in the 1st and 2nd generation biliary ducts in a patient with portal cavernoma. Presence of a portal cavernoma, typical cholangiographic changes on endoscopic or magnetic resonance(More)
OBJECTIVES CD4+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) seem to have a key role in persistence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Notch and transforming growth factor (TGF-β) signaling independently help in the differentiation and regulation of CD4+T cells, including T-helper (T(H)) 1, T(H)2, and Tregs. Whether, the two pathways have modulatory role on different(More)
Tissue diagnosis is essential for the management of patients with malignant biliary obstruction. We prospectively studied brush cytology in 30 patients with malignant biliary obstruction. Wire guided brush cytology was obtained from the stricturous segment during endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography. The study comprised of 30 patients (16 males,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Coenzyme Q(10) is a well studied antioxidant in medical literature, but studies regarding its efficacy in periodontal diseases are few. Hence, the aim of this study was to test the efficacy of coenzyme Q(10) in the form of gel (Perio-Q) in patients with chronic gingivitis and periodontitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 12(More)
A retrospective study was carried out on 30 cases of histologically proven invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast with a prior fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology. On evaluating the May-Grünwald-Giemsa (MGG) FNA smears, cytoplasmic vacuolation was observed in 70% cases. Positivity with periodic acid Schiff-positive, diastase-resistant (DPAS) staining was(More)
ISSUES Differences in type, structure, quality of health care systems and availability of resources influence reporting systems. In most countries, individual systems have a long history of usage that might preclude adoption of a uniform terminology worldwide. CONSENSUS POSITION It is desirable but unrealistic at this time to aim for a unified terminology(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the contributions of electron microscopy (EM) and immunocytochemistry (ICC) as adjuncts in the cytodiagnosis of malignant small round cell tumors (MSRCT). STUDY DESIGN This prospective study included 57 cases with a preliminary aspiration diagnosis of MSRCT. The contributions of EM and ICC in arriving at a specific diagnosis were(More)
PURPOSE Interstitial brachytherapy (IBT) is a preferred treatment option over partial penectomy in selected patients with T1-T2-stage penile carcinoma because of its organ preservation ability. Literature is mostly based on the use of low-dose-rate IBT, and experience with high-dose-rate (HDR) IBT is extremely limited. We studied the role of HDR-IBT alone(More)
Fine-needle aspirationbiopsy (FNAB) is now widely accepted as a diagnostic modality for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The most common diagnostic problem in HCC is distinguishing it from a metastatic carcinoma. The literature from India on HCC is scanty. Hence, we studied the cytomorphological features of HCC and metastatic carcinoma. The(More)
BACKGROUND Recurrent hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been a serious problem after liver transplantation (LT). We report our experience of 24-week therapy with sofosbuvir (SOF) and ribavirin (RBV) in post-LT recurrent HCV in living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) setting in South Asia. METHODS Data from all patients treated for post-transplantation HCV(More)
