Sameer Raghuwanshi, Rajesh Gupta, Mahendra Mohan Vyas, Rakesh Sharma
INTRODUCTION: Pancreatitis is one of most complex and clinically challenging of all abdominal disorders. USG and abdominal CT are the most commonly used diagnostic imaging modalities for the evaluation of pancreas. Computed Tomography (CT) is highly accurate and sensitive than USG in both diagnosing as well as demonstrating the extent. Early assessment of the cause and severity of acute pancreatitis is of utmost importance for prompt treatment and close monitoring of patient with severe disease...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: There is scarcity of clinical data regarding hydatid lung disease from Indian subcontinent. In this retrospective study we analyzed the cumulative data over five year's period from two tertiary care hospitals of Kolkata to determine the presentation, treatment and outcome of hydatid disease of lung. METHOD: We analyzed 106 patients on the basis of clinical findings, radiological findings [chest X-ray--PA and lateral view, CT scan of thorax and upper abdomen, ultrasonography (USG) of thorax and upper abdomen] and serological test IgG ELISA (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay) against echinococcus granulosus antigen along with the mode of diagnosis, indications and types of surgery, and outcome of treatment with chemotherapy (albendazole), surgery and combined surgery with chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: A current assessment of liver abscesses should allow for better understanding of the pathogenesis of the disease and improve the effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment. Amoebic liver abscess occurs more commonly than the pyogenic liver abscess on a worldwide basis. The purpose of the study is to investigate the clinical presentation and management option for liver abscess. METHODS: A prospective observational study was conducted from January 2007 to December 2010, in Kathmandu Medical College Teaching Hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Radiographic findings of dengue fever have not yet been clearly elucidated in relation to clinical and serological findings, despite the fact that two-fifths of the world population lives in areas where the virus is endemic. The current study is a retrospective analysis of ultrasonographic (USG) features of patients presenting with probable dengue fever during the outbreak of DF of 2006 in North India. METHODS: Case records of a 169 patients with probable dengue fever were included...

BACKGROUND: For many surgical procedures skin marking is required well before surgery and induction of anesthesia. In some cases, the patient may need to be standing or sitting while the skin area is marked. Marking of perforators and varicosities in chronic venous diseases, marking of stoma sites for urinary or fecal diversions are some examples. The side of surgery should ideally be marked preoperatively to avoid wrong side surgery. Marks made with conventional marking pens fade or disappear with preoperative skin preparation, whereas marks made with henna paste, which is orange to dark brown in color, last for up to 3 weeks in spite of regular showers and skin cleansing, even with ethanol...

BACKGROUND: Pleural effusion is the common findings in patients presenting with cardiopulmonary symptoms but specific studies are lacking in Nepal. OBJECTIVE: The main objective of this study is to fi nd out the various causes of pleural effusion, their mode of clinical presentation and laboratory analysis of blood and pleural fluid to aid diagnosis of patients with pleural effusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective data from July 2009 to July 2007 from all the cases diagnosed with pleural effusion were taken...

BACKGROUND: Pancreaticopleural fistula is defined as a communication between the pancreatic duct and the pleural cavity. Initially, it is treated conservatively and endoscopically. Surgery is performed within a small group of patients in whom other therapeutic approaches failed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, nine patients with pancreaticopleural fistulas were treated. In 8 of nine patients, conservative treatment was used experimentally. Patients were considered as having a pancreaticopleural fistula before operation if a fistulous tract was seen on radiologic examination or if a large exudative pleural effusion was present with an amylase level > 5...

In order to find out prognostic factors and treatment results in small cell lung cancer (SCLC), 40 patients diagnosed in one year period were prospectively analysed. Following history and physical examination, patients were grouped according to ECOG performance scale and underwent Chest X-ray and thoracic computerized tomography (CT). Complete blood count, biochemical analyses, tumor markers were taken. Abdominal USG or CT, bone scintigraphy, cranial CT or MRI and bone marrow biopsy were made for detection of metastases...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the usefulness of ultrasonography (USG) in the detection of adult filariae in rodents. Wuchereria bancrofti are frequently detected using USG in humans, whereas adult Brugia malayi have not been so far. METHODS: A Meriones unguiculatus with Litomosoides sigmodontis infection was examined to visualize adult filariae of a similar length as W. bancrofti. Similarly, three Mastomys coucha, infected with B. malayi, were examined using USG to verify whether the adult worms, which are far smaller than W...

Hemangioma is the most common primary tumor of the liver. The widespread use of ultrasonography (USG) and computed tomography (CT) has made the diagnosis more common. Although the vast majority of hemangiomas are diagnosed incidentally and are asymptomatic, treatment is still controversial. Surgery is the treatment of choice, especially in giant, symptomatic hemangiomas and uncertainty of diagnosis. Twenty-two patients (median age: 46 years) underwent resection (n = 12) or enucleation (n = 10) for liver hemangioma from 1989 to 2002...

Twenty six (7.3%) of a total of 356 patients with acute renal failure were found to have acute pancreatitis as the primary disease. Seventeen (65.4%) of them were males. Their mean age was 35.6 years. Clinically epigastric pain and tenderness were seen in all (100%); nausea vomiting (73%), low grade fever (50%), left sided pleural effusion (38.4%), haemopericardium (26.9%), shock (26.9%), pseudocyst (19.3%) and adult respiratory distress syndrome (7.6%) were the other major presenting features. Serum amnylase (100%), lipase (53...

Pleural needle biopsy (PNB) maintained its value in spite of introduction of videothoracoscopy. Diagnostic possibilities of PNB using Abrams needle were evaluated during 1989-1998 in 114 patients aged 17-82 years. In histological examinations of the biopsy specimens were diagnosed: neoplasms--in 47 (41%) patients, tuberculosis--in 10 (9%) and chronic nonspecific pleuritis--in remaining 57 patients. Data from further course of the disease confirmed diagnosis of neoplasms and tuberculosis. Complication of PNB was encountered only in 1 patient (pneumothorax)...
