Women in different trimesters of pregnancy (Group B; n = 106) were administered 200 mg zinc sulphate (elemental Zn 45 mg) orally/day from the day of reporting till delivery. Untreated group of 62 served as control. Levels of zinc in maternal serum, umbilical cord blood serum, and urine were estimated. Pregnancy outcome was assessed in terms of incidence of(More)
Maternal thyroid function was investigated in 32 pre-eclamptic women and 10 normal pregnant women in their third trimester. Serum total tri-iodothyronine (TT3) and total thyroxine (TT4) were decreased significantly (P < 0.001) and TSH was increased significantly (P < .001) in pre-eclampsia as compared to normal pregnancy. There was no influence of parity(More)
A cross sectional study was done to determine serum lipid and lipoprotein cholesterol in pre-eclamptic women in their third trimester, taking normal pregnant women in third trimester as controls. The values were compared in patients of different parity. It was observed that serum triglycerides (TG), cholesterol (Chol), LDL-c, VLDL-c, phospholipids (PL) and(More)

In the present study, pregnant women in different trimesters of pregnancy were randomly allocated to untreated control group (Gp A; n = 58), and zinc treated group (Gp B; n = 104). Both groups were administered ferrous sulphate 60 mg, and folic acid 5 mg, twice daily throughout the period of study. Gp B subjects were also administered 45 mg elemental zinc,(More)
Whipple’s operation can be carried out either under general anaesthesia or continuous epidural anaesthesia with sedation. We report three cases that were managed successfully and we found that the combination of lumbar epidural analgesia with sedation is safer and beneficial as compared to those who undergo Whipple’s operation under general anaesthesia.
