Mubashshir Ali, Ashish Chugh, Deepak M. Ranade
Open Journal of Modern Neurosurgery (OJMN) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojmn.2019.91003
Abstract: A 7-year-old male patient reported in our neurosurgery OPD with chief complaints of swelling in occipital region. The swelling was gradually increasing in size as per history given by patient’s attendant. Antenatal and birth history was uneventful. Developmental milestones were normal. Ear examination showed left sided pre auricular tag. Hearing was normal. Eye examination showed right eye limbal dermoid. Limbs examination showed syndactyly of 5th finger. Cardiovascular, respiratory and oral examination was normal. His height and weight were within normal limit. Chest X-ray was normal. Skeletal survey did not show any vertebral deformities. The karyotype was normal. The MRI brain showed a defect of size 1.3 cm in the occipital region through which cerebellum was seen herniating. The mass was surrounded by hypodense collection with multiple thickened septae within suggestive of CSF collection with thickened meninges. Patient underwent surgery and cystic portion was removed, with preservation of the occipital and cerebellar parenchyma and closure of defect was done. Patient responded well that there were no post operative complications and child was discharged on the 10th postoperative day. Hence, based on clinical and radiographic findings, a diagnosis of Goldenhar syndrome was made.

Abstract: Knowledge of the varying drainage patterns of superficial veins of head & neck, in particular, jugular veins are not only important for anatomists but also for the surgeons operating at this level and to clinicians in general. The variations are important for interventional radiologists too who perform transjugular procedures, such as port implantations and the transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt or selective venous samplings. Results of recent studies report that the superficial veins, especially the external jugular vein (EJV), is been increasingly utilized for cannulation to conduct diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. We report a very unusual presentation of external jugular vein on left side of an embalmed male cadáver. Embryological evaluations of the anomaly was done and compared with available literature which showed that the observed variation is rare. El conocimiento de los diferentes patrones de drenaje de las venas superficiales de la cabeza y cuello, en particular, las venas yugulares no sólo son importantes para anatomistas, sino también para los cirujanos que operan a este nivel y para los médicos en general. Las variaciones son importantes también para los radiólogos intervencionistas, quienes realizan procedimientos transyugulares, así como implantaciones portales y portosistémicas transyugulares intrahepáticas o derivación venosa selectiva. Resultados de estudios recientes informan que la venas superficiales, especialmente la vena yugular externa, es cada vez más utilizada para la canulación en diagnósticos y procedimientos terapéuticos. Se reporta una muy inusual variación anatómica de la vena yugular externa del lado izquierdo, presente en un cadáver embalsamado de sexo masculino. Fueron realizadas evaluaciones embriológicas de la anomalía y se compararon con la literatura mostrando que se trata de una variación rara.

International Journal of Morphology , 2008,
Abstract: Many of the anatomical variations that are inadequately described or quantified are actually more clinically and surgically significant than being just anatomical curiosities. We report about such a variation where an aberrant slip existed in the scalene group, in a 56 year old embalmed female cadáver. This kind of variation may affect the size of the scalene triangle, and thus, may potentially result in varied signs and symptoms in patients vulnerable to thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). Proximity of the scalene muscles to the brachial plexus, subclavian artery and vein, coexisting with aberrant slips or bundles may also predispose to compression syndromes. Muchas de las variaciones anatómicas no están suficientemente descritas o cuantificadas y son actualmente clínica y quirúrgicamente significativas más que curiosidades anatómicas. Reportamos una variación anatómica en el grupo de los músculos escalenos, presente en un cadáver de una mujer de 56 a os. Este tipo de variación puede afectar el tama o del triángulo escalénico y por lo tanto, puede potencialmente resultar en variados signos y síntomas en pacientes vulnerables al síndrome de salida torácica. La proximidad de los músculos escalenos con el plexo braquial, arteria y vena suclavias, coexistiendo con fascículos aberrantes pueden predisponer a síndromes de compresión.
Expression of survivin and p53 proteins and their correlation with hormone receptor status in Indian breast cancer patients
Ranade K,Nerurkar A,Phulpagar M,Shirsat N
Indian Journal of Medical Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: Background : In invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), many antiapoptotic and proapoptotic genes regulate disease outcome. Hormone receptor-mediated mechanisms have also been shown to prevent apoptosis. Therefore, relations between hormone receptor status and other molecular markers need further examination. Aims : In the present study, we analyzed the expression of apoptosis-regulating genes, viz., Survivin and mutant p53, in benign breast disease (fibroadenoma) and IDC patients. Results were then correlated with hormone receptor status of the patients. Material and Methods : Paraffin-embedded tissue samples from 63 untreated female patients with IDC and 32 female patients with fibroadenoma were used. Expression of Survivin and mutant p53 was evaluated using immunohistochemical staining method. Statistical Analysis : Fisher exact test and nonparametric correlation test (Spearman rank correlation test) were performed. Results : In fibroadenoma, 53% of patients expressed Survivin and 13% of patients expressed p53 protein. Statistically significant increase in Survivin and p53 protein expression was observed in carcinoma cases. Survivin expression correlated negatively with progesterone receptor (PR) status, but its expression was independent of estrogen receptor (ER) status. p53 expression showed negative correlation with both ER and PR status. Conclusions : Increased expression of Survivin and p53 in IDC patients and correlation with hormone receptors suggest that Survivin and p53 along with hormone receptors status are likely to contribute significantly to apoptosis resistance and may serve as therapeutic target that could increase the effectiveness of conventional breast cancer therapy.
Extra genital heterologous malignant mixed mullerian tumor of primary peritoneal origin

Indian Journal of Pathology and Microbiology , 2009,
Abstract: The case of an extragenital heterologous malignant mixed müllerian tumor (MMMT) of primary peritoneal origin occurring in a 76-year-old female is presented. A large tumor was seen between the uterus and rectosigmoid occupying the entire pelvis. The uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries were uninvolved. The tumor was composed of carcinomatous areas showing endometrioid and serous papillary differentiation and sarcomatous areas showing cartilaginous differentiation. The extragenital primary MMMTs of the female peritoneum are thought to originate from the secondary müllerian system. This case is presented for its rarity. To the best our knowledge, this is the first case of extragenital MMMT of primary peritoneal origin in Indian literature.
Atlas assimilation: a case report
Ranade AV,Rai R,Prabhu LV,Kumaran M
Neuroanatomy , 2007,
Abstract: Congenital and acquired bony abnormalities of the cranio-vertebral junction may result in compression and distortion of the neural structures, vertebro-basilar vascular system, and cerebrospinal fluid channels. Ninety-eight human skulls of both sexes were examined for occipitalization of atlas. Two crania showed various degrees of assimilation of the atlas to the basicranium. One of the skulls showed complete fusion of the atlas with the occipital bone. Whereas, in the other skull atlas was partially fused to the occipital bone. Even though assimilation of the atlas is the most common anomaly found in cranio-cervical junction, head and neck surgeons should be aware that such an anomaly may exist without any typical symptomatic presentation, and thus, serious consequences of upper cervical spinal manipulative therapy may arise when a complete and adequate clinical assessment is missed.
Multiple Injections of in Vitro Expanded Autologous Bone Marrow Stem Cells For Cervical Level Spinal Cord Injury - A Case Report
Srivastava A,Bapat M,Ranade S,Srinivasan V
Journal of Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine , 2010,
Abstract: BACKGROUND: Patients with complete spinal cord injury at cervical level, mostly lead a life with quadriplegia. We report a case of 22 year old male, who became quadriplegic after C4-C5 injury and has improved after five injections of in-vitro expanded autologous bone marrow mononuclear cells (ABMMNC).MATERIALS & METHODS:The patient developed complete quadriplegia following fall from height. MRI suggested C5 burst fracture with retropulsion of C5 vertebrae and cord contusion at C4-C5 and underwent decompression and fixation four days post injury. After surgical fixation, bone marrow was harvested twice and a portion of the MNCs were expanded in-vitro and injected and another portion was cryopreserved which were later expanded and injected through lumbar puncture. The first injection was given 13 days after surgery. The first specimen of BM had CD34 of 0.18% and was injected twice; once immediately after harvesting (CD34:1.57%) and later after cryopreservation for 11 months (CD34: 3.33%). The second specimen had a CD34 of 0.52% and was injected thrice; twice after harvesting with CD34 of 1.28% and 6.23% respectively and later after cryopreservation for four months (CD34: 14.03%). The expansion was done in a GMP compliant clean room using autologous serum and the specimens were subjected to aerobic culture and Endotoxin tests before each administration.RESULTS: Investigations done (i)Post injury, (ii) Post decompression and (iii) one year (iv) One and half year after the injury have shown objective improvements with Light touch score (20-22-40-48), Pin prick score (20-20-32-40), Anal sensations (Nil-Nil-Present), Motor Score (11-11-22-26), Sensory level (C6-C6-C6-C6), Motor level (C5-C5-C6-C6), Neurological level (C5-C6-C6-C6), Spinal cord independence measure (9-12-45-50) and Barthel index (0-0-30-40). Repeat MRI show gliosis at C5. The ASIA score has improved from A to B with no adverse reactions.CONCLUSION: Multiple intrathecal injections of in-vitro expanded ABMMNCs in cervical-spinal cord injury was found to be safe and gradual objective improvements have been observed over a year and a half without any adverse outcome
Error tolerance of two-basis quantum key-distribution protocols using qudits and two-way classical communication
Georgios M. Nikolopoulos,Kedar S. Ranade,Gernot Alber
Physics , 2006, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.73.032325
Abstract: We investigate the error tolerance of quantum cryptographic protocols using $d$-level systems. In particular, we focus on prepare-and-measure schemes that use two mutually unbiased bases and a key-distillation procedure with two-way classical communication. For arbitrary quantum channels, we obtain a sufficient condition for secret-key distillation which, in the case of isotropic quantum channels, yields an analytic expression for the maximally tolerable error rate of the cryptographic protocols under consideration. The difference between the tolerable error rate and its theoretical upper bound tends slowly to zero for sufficiently large dimensions of the information carriers.
