BACKGROUND: Manual meat cutters in India are at high risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) for a variety of reasons including holding awkward postures, repetitive forceful exertions, and inadequate rest. This is the first study of its kind to investigate the nature and magnitude of WMSDs among manual meat cutters in India. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to measure the ergonomic risk factors for WMSDs among adult male manual meat cutters working in Jabalpur, India...

BACKGROUND: Patients with perforated peptic ulcer (PPU) often present with acute, severe illness that carries a high risk for morbidity and mortality. Mortality ranges from 3-40% and several prognostic scoring systems have been suggested. The aim of this study was to review the available scoring systems for PPU patients, and to assert if there is evidence to prefer one to the other. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We searched PubMed for the mesh terms "perforated peptic ulcer", "scoring systems", "risk factors", "outcome prediction", "mortality", "morbidity" and the combinations of these terms...

The increasing awareness of the worse than expected outcome after typhoid ileal perforation (TIP) prompted us to prospectively prognosticate patients with the help of the Jabalpur prognostic score (JPS), a simplified scoring system for peptic perforation peritonitis (PPP). Eighty-two consecutive patients with TIP were studied from May 2005 to August 2008 in the Department of Surgery, NSCB Government Medical College, Jabalpur (MP), India. Six parameters used in the JPS were recorded: age, heart rate, mean blood pressure, serum creatinine, any co-morbid illness and perforation-operation interval...

Perforation peritonitis is treated with surgery and antibiotics. This study was conducted to identify bacterial and fungal microorganisms responsible for peritonitis in patients with hollow viscus perforation and to examine the influence of these microorganisms on the outcome. A prospective study was conducted from May 2005 to September 2006 involving 84 consecutive patients with spontaneous gastrointestinal perforation peritonitis, who were referred for surgery. Peritoneal fluid was analyzed by microbial culture and biochemical tests for bacteria and fungi...

AIM OF STUDY: Quality of life (QOL) as outcome during treatment of acid peptic disease has been studied, but, peptic perforation, which is the commonest complication of acid peptic disease, has not been studied in the light of QOL outcome. The present-study addresses the important issue of QOL after peptic perforations. METHODS: This prospective study was carried on 51 adult consecutive survivors of peptic perforation managed in Gastrointestinal Surgery Unit, Department of Surgery, Government NSCB Medical College and Hospital, Jabalpur (MP) India...

BACKGROUND: Several complex prognostic scoring systems are available for abdominal sepsis. We constructed and assessed a simplified scoring system for peptic perforation, which can be easily used in developing countries. METHODS: One hundred and forty consecutive patients with perforated pre-pyloric or duodenal ulcer undergoing Graham's patch omentopexy closure were studied prospectively. Each factor was given a score based on its severity in accordance with the APACHE-II scoring system to construct the simplified prognostic (Jabalpur) scoring system, and multiple regression analysis was used to identify risk factors...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a complex disorder, in which the anatomical defect is only one part of the spectrum of disease. Hypoplasia of lung complicated by pulmonary hypertension and right to left shunting results in serious hypoxemia. Many factors, based on degree of alterations in respiratory physiology and involving analysis of blood gases and acid base systems, have been used in an attempt to prognosticate the outcome. Majority of these investigations are not available in a modest set up like ours...

Six hundred and nineteen infants and young children from the slums of Jabalpur City were screened by twenty trained paramedical workers using the Woodside Screening Technique. A second screen was given by the author within three days of the first screen on 350 (56.5%) children. The tester/author agreement was 97%. The results of the Woodside Screening Technique were validated against the standard Gesell's Schedules. The specificity and sensitivity rates of 88 and 83%, respectively were better than the original Denver Developmental Screening Test (77% each)...
