BACKGROUND: Patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS) and atrial fibrillation (AF) are at risk for thromboembolism and restoration of sinus rhythm (SR) may be the preferred strategy. Percutaneous balloon mitral valvotomy (PBMV) improves hemodynamics, but may not be enough to restore SR. METHODS: Prospective randomized study aimed at evaluating efficacy of early direct current cardioversion (DCCV) following successful PBMV in patients with long-standing AF. Group 1 (n=20) had patients of rheumatic MS with AF who underwent successful PBMV...

There is limited literature on the use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in patients with recent myocardial infarction and in those with reduced cardiac output. In this report, we describe the safe use of ECT in a 70-year-male suffering from severe depressive episode with psychotic symptoms. He had a history of poor response to adequate pharmacotherapy and had suffered from myocardial infraction (MI), about 3 weeks prior to admission to the psychiatric unit. In view of severe depression associated with marked anxiety, agitation, psychotic symptoms, and poor food intake he was started on ECT after 5 weeks of MI when his cardiac output was only 30%...

Amongst the varied, diverse causes of intraabdominal masses in infancy and early childhood, gastric teratomas (GTs) account for a very small proportion. A worldwide literature search reveals only around one hundred cases of GT and also supports the fact that its preoperative diagnosis remains elusive. Here we report the case of a two-month-old male who presented to the pediatric surgery outpatient department of Kasturba Medical College and Hospital, Karnataka, India, with progressive distension of abdomen since birth...

The species Elaeocarpus sphaericus (Rudraksha) is a religious, medicinally important threatened tree of India. An efficient micropropagation protocol has been developed from nodal explants of this plant species collected from north-east India for large scale production of planting material at favourable sites within the country. Best shoot initiation occurred in MS medium supplemented with 2.2μM BA+2.2μM Kn in combination. Addition of Casein Hydrolysate (CH) (100mg/L) increased the shoot number. Microshoots excised and subcultured in 2...

M. tuberculosis N-acetyl-glucosamine-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GlmUMtb) is a bi-functional enzyme engaged in the synthesis of two metabolic intermediates N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate (GlcNAc-1-P) and UDP-GlcNAc, catalyzed by the C- and N-terminal domains respectively. UDP-GlcNAc is a key metabolite essential for the synthesis of peptidoglycan, disaccharide linker, arabinogalactan and mycothiols. While glmUMtb was predicted to be an essential gene, till date the role of GlmUMtb in modulating the in vitro growth of Mtb or its role in survival of pathogen ex vivo / in vivo have not been deciphered...

BACKGROUND: Gall bladder cancer (GBC) is the most common and aggressive malignancy of the biliary tract with extremely poor prognosis. Radical resection remains the only potential curative treatment for operable lesions. Although laparoscopic approach is now considered as standard of care for many gastrointestinal malignancies, surgical community is still reluctant to use this approach for GBC probably because of fear of tumor dissemination, inadequate lymphadenectomy and overall nihilistic approach...

With numerous examples of heavier congeners as well as neighbors, only four paddlewheel compounds, including one coordination architecture, of manganese with the [Mn(μ-O2CR)4L2] core were reported in the literature. We report here a robust pillared-layer framework with an α-polonium topology comprising such a core as a subunit, {[Mn2(O2CC6H4Si(CH3)2C6H4CO2)2(4,4'-bpy)]}n (1), where 4,4'-bpy = 4,4'-bipyridine, with an MnMn distance of 3.005(2) Å, which does not vary with temperature. For the first time, the variable temperature magnetic data (2-300 K) and crystal structures at two different temperatures (100 K and 296 K) are combined for the same example to support the fact that there is no metal-metal bond in such compounds like 1...

Chromoblastomycosis is caused by dematiaceous fungi. It develops after inoculation of the organism into the skin. The lesion begins as a pink, scaly papule or warty growth. We report a case of chromoblastomycosis occurring in a multibacillary leprosy patient, who had already been released from treatment (RFT). The diagnosis was confirmed by the presence of sclerotic bodies (Medlar bodies/copper penny bodies). Systemic antifungal treatment has been found effective. The case is being reported in view of the association of two diseases and the dramatic clinical response to systemic treatment with Itraconazole...

Automatic prostate segmentation in MR images is a challenging task due to inter-patient prostate shape and texture variability, and the lack of a clear prostate boundary. We propose a supervised learning framework that combines the atlas based AAM and SVM model to achieve a relatively high segmentation result of the prostate boundary. The performance of the segmentation is evaluated with cross validation on 40 MR image datasets, yielding an average segmentation accuracy near 90%.

We report a rare case of a young man with hereditary multiple exostoses (HME) who presented with severe pain in the hips, requiring bilateral total hip arthroplasty (THA), along with excision of the exostoses. The reported incidence of exostoses around the hip has been reported from 30% in some series to 90% in other studies of HME. These patients may remain asymptomatic, but if not, their symptoms are usually related to the presence of the exostoses itself and the possibility of hip osteoarthrosis is frequently overlooked...
