Abstract: Solitary well differentiated papillary mesothelioma is an unusual variant of epithelial mesothelioma. Most of them exhibit either benign or indolent behavior. Making the differential diagnosis between this rare tumor and serous papillary carcinoma can be problematic. We report here a case of a 24 year-old unmarried female with a well differentiated papillary mesothelioma of peritoneal origin.

Title : Bronchial Artery Embolization – An Unusual Cause of Paraplegia and Review of Literature
Country : India
Authors : Lekhra OP, Dosi R
: 10.9790/0853-0651114      logo

Abstract: Bronchial artery embolization (BAE) is a well-established minimally invasive procedure in the management of moderate to massive and recurrent hemoptysis. The bronchial circulation aneurysms and dilatations are commonly responsible for the hemoptysis and have an easy approach through the descending aorta via the femoral or subclavian route by angiography. There are very few common complications associated with the procedure are recurrence of hemoptysis, chest pain, cough, dysphagia .Paraplegia secondary to embolization of the anterior spinal artery is a very rare but serious complication. Proper identification of the culprit bronchial vessel and pre-embolization study of its anastomosis are useful measures to minimize the chances of this dreaded complication.

Abstract: Background: Orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning requires the patient's history, extra and intra oral examination, analysis of diagnostic records comprising of orthodontic photographs, radiographs and study casts. Tooth-size is the sum of the mesio distal widths of the maxillary and mandibular teeth. For ideal occlusion, teeth in both arches should be proportional in size. Tooth size analysis was presented by Bolton in 1958. The ratio for anterior segment was derived to be 77.2±0.22% and 91.3±0.26% for the whole arch. Material And Methods: Cross sectional data was gathered from the study casts of patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. 115 out of 160 study casts were filtered based upon the inclusion and exclusion criteria. ANB angle and Witt's appraisal were traced on corresponding lateral cephalograms. The mesio distal widths of all maxillary and mandibular teeth from right first molar to left first molar were calibrated with the use of a manual caliper. The readings were then used to compute the anterior and total Bolton ratios. Results: Significantly higher mean anterior tooth ratios were found for Class II (p<0.01) patients. All other ratios were within close range of Bolton's norms. Conclusions: Skeletal Class II patients showed a tendency towards higher mesiodistal widths of teeth in the mandibular anterior region.

Abstract: The most frequent operations used for the regeneration of periodontal tissues are the flap operation, bone graft, guided tissue regeneration, and a combination of bone graft and guided tissue regeneration. In assessing the regenerated periodontal tissue, it is difficult to judge whether true regeneration has taken place without histological evaluation. The present study evaluated the clinical reliability and accuracy of bone probing measurements by transgingival probing and radiographic bone level by RVG in assessment of bone level by comparing those results with surgically confirmed bone levels. The study concluded that SBL provides actual bone level assessment but it requires surgical re-entry which might hamper wound healing and may also be inconvenient for the patients. Hence bone level measurement by transgingival probing which highly co-relates with bone levels measured surgically, is most reliable method for assessing bone levels before and after any surgical procedures.

Keywords - bone level, intrabony defect, radio visuo graph, stent, trans gingival probing.

Abstract: Dermatoglyphics is the collective name for all those integumentary features within the limits to be defined and it applies to the division of anatomy which includes their study. Diagnosis of many diseases which are genetically or non genetically determined like Diabetes mellitus, Schizophrenia, Hypertension, etc can now be aided by dermatoglyphic analysis. Oral submucous fibrosis is a chronic precancerous oral disease, specially seen in guthka chewers, but not all the gutkha chewers develops the disease or non gutkha chewers may also develop the disease. Genetic predisposition explains such individual variability. Such genetic predisposition can be explored with the help of dermatoglyphic studies.100 gutkha chewers with Oral Submucous fibrosis and 100 Gutkha chewers without Oral submucous fibrosis were selected for the study and their qualitative dermatoglypphic analysis with specific reference to finger tip patterns was carried out and was statistically analyzed. Some highly significant patterns were observed in patients with Oral submucous fibrosis.

Abstract: Complete traumatic protrusion of the globe is a rare event, and there are only a few reported cases in the literature. Complete globe protrusion post trauma may be associated with optic nerve avulsion where visual recovery is obviously not expected. We report a case of 9 year old boy who was a victim of bicycle accident with unilateral globe protrusion. Vision in the protrudedeye was reduced to perception of light with gross restriction of ocular movements. After repositioning the globe andtarsorrhaphy patient showed satisfactory visual and cosmetic improvement. Thus good visual recovery and ocular motility may be achieved by prompt and appropriate management in traumatic protruded globe.

Abstract: Gum are pinkish brown coloured soft tissue holding the teeth in bony sockets by adhering them firmly through periodontal ligaments to periosteum . Gums are called basically gingiva and their inflammatory diseases are called gingivitis in general .Gum disease is an infection of the gum tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth. It is the major cause of tooth loss in later half of life as in adult as well as in elderly. In early stages it is called gingivitis and when gingivitis is not treated properly , it may advance to periodontitis because of nonspecific signs and symptoms to be noted by patients. Main reasons for ignorance about gum diseases in my opinion are following-

Abstract: Objective: Sino Nasal Outcome Test – 22 (SNOT-22) Questionnaire study was done to analyse the effectiveness of septoplasty surgery by noting the improvement of nasal symptoms & general quality of life(QOL) by means of SNOT-22 questionnaire given to patients before the surgery and 8 weeks after the surgery. Analysis of effectiveness of septoplasty is usually done by noting pre and post operative symptoms. Study Design; This is a prospective study and our data analysis consisted originally of 76 patients of which 70 patients answered the SNOT-22 questions both preoperatively and postoperatively. The age group of the patients was between 18 to 55 years. Results; 60 patients( 86% of the patients) who had mild to moderate symptoms(with SNOT-22 scoring < 40 points), and also young patients( <30 years) showed much improvement with the symptoms with relief from nasal obstruction after surgery. In the post operative SNOT- 22, the need to blow nose, sneezing, running nose, nasal obstruction, loss of smell or taste, post nasal discharge, facial pain/pressure, difficulty in falling asleep, waking up at night lack of good night's sleep, wake up tired, reduced productivity and embarrassed improved significantly. Conclusion: Evaluation of symptoms & findings in the patient is essential in deciding whether surgery or other treatment can be done in individual patient having nasal blockage symptoms. The results are encouraging us to use the systematic questionnaire (SNOT -22) to estimate the severity of symptoms in daily clinical practice.

Abstract: The effect of two different laparoscopic methods on ovarian reserve as determined by antimullerian hormone(AMH), antral follicle count (AFC) and ovarian volume, in patients with ovarian endometrioma. Randomized prospective study done in tertiary education and research hospital (Shatby Alexandria university hospital) on one hundred patients presenting with ovarian endometrioma , AMH,AFC and ovarian volumes determined before and after laparoscopic surgery( postoperative first month, three months and sixth months); for two groups (Group1)cystectomy(stripping) and(Group2) bipolar coagulation performed randomly using closed envelope . The main concern was assessment of ovarian reserve damage as determined by AMH, AFC and ovarian volume, and comparing the AMH values with AMH nomogram. The results shows that, the decreases in AMH, AFC and ovarian volume were found for both coagulation and cystectomy, but the decrease was statistically significantly more frequent in cystectomized ovaries than in coagulated ovaries. Although this decrease AMH level still in normal percentile (25th-50th)as plotted to AMH nomogram (Nelson. AMH age nomogram).

Abstract: Cerebral ischemic stroke is a life threatening neurological disorder leads to mortality and long term disability in survival patients. Atherosclerosis is a common cause of ischemic strokes which inturn predisposes thromboembolism and than triggers thrombotic strokes or transient ischemic attacks. The atherogenic nature of homocysteine plays a vital role in the development of cardiac or cerebral ischemic strokes. The purpose of this case - control study was to corelate homocysteine in cerebral ischemic stroke patients.

Abstract: We are reporting an uncommon but preventable complication of an ectopic placement of gall stone after spillage following laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a 60yrs old patient who presented with an infraumblical discharging sinus over an old surgical scar. Ultrasonography showed thick walled parietal wall sinus tract at the scar site with minimal fluid collection with presence of a curvilinear hyper intense shadowing in fluid collection. On operation it was found that a large stone was present in the depth of sinus tract. This stone was lodged in a pocket in the preperitoneal space much below the umbilicus and not in any way near the lower extreme of falciform ligament.

Abstract: The present study looks at the prevalence of soil transmitted helminths among school children from a rural and a semi urban setting at the Nsukka region of Enugu State of Nigeria. Stool samples were collected randomly and examined by basic parasitological techniques for the presence of intestinal helminths. 255 samples were collected and examined. Of these, 116(45.5%) were infected with the results being statistically significant (P < 0.001). Ascaris lumbricoides was encountered in 46% of the infected specimens, hookworms in 23%, Trichuris trichuira in 9% and Strongyloides stercoralis in 11%. Samples from the group 2 pupils who were from the rural setting had the highest prevalence in worm infestation and the results were statistically significant (P < 0.05). With respect to age, of the 4 age groups involved in the study, the 8-10 years were found to be the most infected in both groups with 100% infection for the group 2 samples while the 14-16 were the least infected and the results are significant statistically.
