Surgical Science (SS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2015.65033
Abstract:

Background: Stapled hemorrhoidectomy, popularly known as Longo technique is in use for the treatment of hemorrhoids since its first description to surgical fraternity in the world congress of endoscopic surgeons in 1998. Objectives: To evaluate the feasibility, patient acceptance, recurrence and results of stapled haemorrhoidectomy in our early experience. Methods: Between Jan 2012 and Dec 2013, 42 patients with symptomatic GRADE III and IV hemorrhoids were operated by stapled hemorrhoidectomy by a single surgeon at our surgery department. The evaluation of this technique was done by assessing the feasibility of the surgery; and recording operative time, postoperative pain, complications, hospital stay, return to work and recurrence. Results: All the procedures were completed successfully. The mean (range) operative time was 30 (20 - 45) min. The blood loss was minimal. Mean (range) length of hospitalization for the entire group was 1 (1 - 3) days. Only 3 patients required more than 1 injection of diclofenac (75 mg) while as rest of the patients were quite happy switching over to oral diclofenac (50 mg) just after a single parenteral dose. All the patients returned to their routine work in less than a week’s time. The mean (range) follow-up was 6 (4 - 12) months. There were no major intraoperative or postoperative complications except for retention of urine in 8 patients. The patients are still on regular follow-up and have not had recurrence as yet. Conclusion: Stapled hemorrhoidectomy technique is a safe alternative to the traditional Milligan-Morgan technique. It can be performed as an office procedure, is well tolerated by patients and is cost effective than conventional surgical therapy.

Understanding Retinal Changes after Stroke  [PDF]

Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2017.74037
Abstract:
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and disability in the United States. According to World Heart Federation, every year, 15 million people suffer from stroke worldwide out of which nearly 6 million people die and another 5 million people are disabled. Out of many organs affected after stroke, one of them is eye. Majority of the stroke victims suffer vision loss due to stroke-induced retinal damage. However, stroke-induced retinal damage and microvascular changes have not been given paramount importance in understanding stroke pathophysiology and predicting its occurrence. Retinal imaging can be a very powerful tool to understand and predict stroke. This review will highlight the importance of retinal changes in predicting occurrence of stroke, major retinal changes, the relationship between retinal diseases and stroke and moreover, molecular mechanisms delineating the stroke induced-retinal changes and therapeutics associated with it.

Views: 48 Published Date June 2012 Volume 2012:5 Pages 505 - 509 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/IJGM.S31625 Received: 09 March 2012 Accepted: 10 April 2012 Published: 08 June 2012 Jaideep Dogra Poly Clinic, Central Government Health Scheme, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India Purpose: Two mega trials have raised the question as to whether the hypothesis that infection plays a role in atherosclerosis is still relevant. This controlled preliminary trial investigated an extended dose of azithromycin in the treatment of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection causing coronary artery disease (CAD). Patients and methods: Forty patients with documentary evidence of CAD were screened for immunoglobulin G titers against C. pneumoniae and grouped into either the study group (patients with positive titer, n = 32) or control group (patients with negative titer, n = 8). Cases who met inclusion criteria could not have had coronary artery bypass graft surgery or percutaneous coronary intervention in the preceding 6 months. Informed consent was obtained from every patient. Baseline blood samples were analyzed for red blood cell indices, serum creatinine, and liver function tests, and repeated every 2 months. A primary event was defined as the first occurrence of death by any cause, recurrent myocardial infarction, coronary revascularization procedure, or hospitalization for angina. Patients in the study group received 500 mg of oral azithromycin once daily for 5 days, which was then repeated after a gap of 10 days (total of 24 courses in the 1-year trial period). The control group did not have azithromycin added to their standard CAD treatment. Results: In the study group, 30 patients completed the trial. Two patients had to undergo percutaneous coronary intervention in the initial first quarter of the 1-year trial period. In the control group, one patient died during the trial, one had to undergo coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and one had percutaneous coronary intervention. Conclusion: The patients tolerated the therapy well and there was a positive correlation between azithromycin and secondary prevention of CAD.

One stage repair in Hypospadias by prepucial island flap technique
Dogra B
Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery , 2003,
Abstract: Surgical repair of hypospadias has taxed the skills of surgeons the world over. One stage repair is preferable as it decreases operative trauma, allows use of virgin unscarred skin, decreases number of hospitalisations and hence is economical. During last 4 years the author has managed 60 cases of hypospadias and their complications in a tertiary care service hospital. The author has randomly used onlay prepucial flap technique and tubularisation of prepucial flap in roughly equal number of cases of hypospadias to assess the advantages and limitations of these techniques in service clientele and their dependents.
Technology and patent impact on developing countries

Abstract: Since the beginning of the 20th century, the world has witnessed technological advances on a massive scale. The miraculous transition in technology has revamped the industrialized world by replacing the obsolescent implements of production and changing the inputs combination. The new technology always begets disparate consequences of the distributional dimensions in the world economy. Innovations have led to new generation products along with new processes of production to replace the old. When outsiders in developing countries employ technology developed by a corporate unit, it entails heavy payment of royalties as specified by the trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights (TRIPs) agreement under the World Trade Organization (WTO). The invention of new and sophisticated technology takes place with the help of in-house research by large corporate houses from the advanced nations. The patenting system under the WTO magnifies the perennial egemony of the developed countries in the developing economies of the world.
