Corona mortis – a case report with surgical implications
Sakthivelavan S,Sendiladibban SD,Aristotle S,Sivanandan AV
International Journal of Anatomical Variations , 2010,
Abstract: Corona mortis is a Latin terminology which means “crown of death”. It indicates the presence of both the normal and variant obturator artery with extensive anastomoses. One such finding was observed in a female cadaver where the obturator artery was arising from the anterior division of the internal iliac artery and also the abnormal obturator artery from the inferior epigastric artery. These two vessels anastomosed at the upper border of the obturator foramen. This is referred to as the origin of the obturator artery by 2 roots in some studies and the abnormal obturator artery is in fact considered as a normal variant due to its common occurrence. Some studies have included such anastomosis between the veins also as corona mortis. The variant vessels are at risk of injury not only in groin surgery but also in orthopedic surgery and pelvic fractures, and are to be dealt with care during surgical procedures.

Inheritance of morphological characters in sorghum
R Nagaraja Reddy,S Murali Mohan,R Madhusudhana,AV Umakanth
Journal of SAT Agricultural Research , 2008,
Abstract: Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) is an important food andfodder crop in India and the world. It has a number ofadvantages which have made it the traditional staplecereal crop in subsistence or low-resource agriculture inthe hot semi-arid regions. Morphological variants withdistinct phenotypic expression can be used to establishlinkages and for indirect selection if found associatedwith useful traits. However, for constructing linkagemaps, a sufficiently large number of distinct morphologicaltraits is required. Several morphological variants fordifferent plant parts, such as leaf, stem, spike, grainpeduncle, etc have been reported in sorghum (IBPGRand ICRISAT 1993). Among the many traits, brown andpithy leaf midrib, presence of awn, type of glumes in thepanicles and plant color, ie, anthocyanin pigmentation ofleaf sheath have been found to be useful as markers sincethey are associated with one or the other economicallyimportant traits such as increased fodder quality (brownmidrib) (Porter et al. 1978) and resistance to bird damage(presence of awns) (Kullaiswamy and Goud 1983). Closedglume type panicles have advantage over open typepanicles in offering resistance to grain mold infection(Murty 2000) and tan-colored plants are most preferredin seed industry as they exhibit immunity to variousfungal diseases (Melake-Berhan et al. 1996). A recentreport on the effects of plant color on agronomiccharacters of sorghum showed lower grain yields from agroup of tan hybrids compared to pigmented hybrids(Williams-Alanis et al. 1995). Further, such traits are moreimportant from the point of identification of cultivar,which is much needed in the present era of plant varietyprotection (Roy et al. 2004). In view of the importance ofthese characters in sorghum, an attempt has been made tostudy the inheritance of these characters using a set ofcultivars.

Nutritive value of red vine husks and pips for sheep
AV Ferreira
South African Journal of Animal Science , 2004,
Abstract: The potential of red vine husks and pips as a component of animal feed was investigated. Twenty-five Dohne Merino ram lambs (mean live weight + s.d. = 41.4 + 2.3 kg) were used. A completely randomised design was used and the animals were assigned to five diets including 0, 12.5, 25.0, 37.5 and 50% vine husks and pips together with pelleted lucerne hay, respectively. The voluntary intake of feed and water were not negatively influenced by the percentage vine husks and pips included in the diet. The digestibility of the crude protein, neutral detergent fibre and acid detergent fibre decreased significantly, while the dry matter digestibility showed a strong tendency towards a lower digestibility as the percentage vine husks and pips increased in the diet. According to the plasma metabolites, no toxic effects were evident in this study. South African Journal of Animal Science Supp 2 2004: 23-35
Efecto del desmane y de la modalidad de cosecha sobre las características y producción de racimos de plátano tipo Francés FHIA-21
Calvo, AV.
Tropicultura , 2010,
Abstract: Two experiments of dehandig intensity (DI) removing 0, 1 or 2 true hands were done in the first generation of FHIA-21 plantain in the Caribbean of Costa Rica during year 2006. One experiment was harvest using the modality (HM) of pre-established age (A) of the bunch and the other considering the pre-established age of the bunch in combination with fruit thickness (AT). Bunch characteristics were measured at harvest. Bunch weight and its fruit number decreased as DI increased in both HM (A: P< 0.0081; AT: P< 0.0067). The number of effective leaves and days from dehanding to harvest did not vary (P> 0.3174) with DI nor with HM. Central fruit thickness of the inner row differed among DI in the majority of A-HM hands (P< 0.0557) and only in the three first hands of seven bunch hands from AT-HM (P< 0.0153). When harvest was performed through A-HM, the central fruit length of the inner row was larger with the DI but the difference was large enough to be significant (P< 0.0505) in the third and five hands in bunches of six hands. For ATHM no differences (P> 0.1398) were observed. Hand conformation variables did not differ among DI for all hands from AT-HM (P> 0.0835) and for the majority of those hands in A-HM (P> 0.1440). In this experimental conditions HM determine bunch response to DI.
Reviewing disease burden among rural Indian women
Ramanakumar AV
Online Journal of Health & Allied Sciences , 2004,
Abstract: The disease burden of rural Indian women is reviewed by utilizing the data from the 'Survey of Causes of Death (rural)' annual reports of Registrar General of India supplemented with National family health survey (NFHS-II). The review indicates that bronchitis and asthma are the leading causes while prematurity and heart attacks are second and third respectively. Most of the maternal deaths are concentrated in the age group 20-24 and bleeding is the main cause of maternal death. Tuberculosis of the lungs, malaria and burns are also important causes of death in the early reproductive ages. Rate of suicide, burn, and anaemia diminishes with age. Though nationwide health plans have succeeded in reducing the fatality of women's diseases to a entrain extent, there is however, a great need for improved and effective area-specific health programs to achieve the desired goals.
Re-engineering in OPCAB—A Vettath’s perspective  [PDF]

OPCAB (off pump coronary artery bypass) has become a preferred technique of coronary revascularization in India, and more so in the East. This technique was restarted by Buffalo and Bennetti who had published their results in 1985. Since then, there has been a great enthusiasm among coronary surgeons to develop and standardize this technique of CABG (coronary artery bypass grafting). In the late nineties, nearly all the coronary centers in India started performing this technique. But, by the early 2000, only a few surgeons continued this practice. Only those who could perform this OPCAB technique in nearly 100% of their patients continued this and the rest of them returned back to the conventional on pump CABG. To attain this result, we had to re-engineer our technique of anesthesia, surgical technique, stabilization, and positioning of the heart to enable us to perform OPCAB in all patients who needed CABG. We have analyzed our last 3000 patients operated by the same surgeon (Dr MPV), in the same center with the same team. As OPCAB was the only procedure performed for coronary revascularization, we have compared our first 1000 patients, with the second 2000 patients that underwent the procedure. Our technique and our results are presented.

Abstract: Compared with bare-metal stents, drug-eluting stents (DES) have greatly reduced the risk of in-stent restenosis (ISR) by inhibiting neointimal growth. Nevertheless, DES are still prone to device failure, which may lead to cardiac events. Recently, stent fracture (SF) has emerged as a potential mechanism of DES failure that is associated with ISR. Stent fracture is strongly related to stent type, and prior reports suggest that deployment of sirolimus eluting stents (SES) may be associated with a higher risk of SF compared to other DES. Everolimus eluting stents (EESs) represent a new generation of DES with promising results. The occurrence of SF with EES has not been well established. The present paper describes two cases of EES fracture associated with ISR. 1. Introduction The occurrence of stent fractures (SF) is recognized as a potential complication of stent deployment. Its incidence varies markedly in published reports, ranging from less than 1% to more than 16% [1–3]. Little is known about the precise incidence of SF in the “real world”. However, SF is likely to be underrecognized due to difficulty in diagnosis and the lack of standardized definitions. Stent fracture has currently become an important concern after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation due to its potential association with in-stent restenosis (ISR) and stent thrombosis [4]. Sirolimus-eluting stents (SES), as compared with paclitaxel (PES) or zotarolimus-eluting stents (ZES), are considered the DES with the highest risk of SF [5, 6]. The everolimus eluting stent (EES; Multilink Vision platform, Abbott Vascular, Temecula, CA), is a new DES with promising long-term results [7–9]. As compared with other DES, EES provides the thinnest available strut profile (0.08?mm) [10]. The incidence of SF with EES has never been assessed. The present paper describes two cases of EES fracture associated with ISR. 2. Case Reports 2.1. Case-1 This patient was a 72-year-old lady with a chief complaint of prolonged chest pain. Her medical history included hypertension, hyperlipidemia, family history of coronary artery disease, and cutaneous lupus erythematosus. In May 2009, she experienced exertional chest pain and underwent coronary angiography which revealed a calcific 90% mid- and 80% distal RCA stenosis. The distal lesion was treated with rotational atherectomy using 1.25?mm burr following which a 2.25 × 23?mm Xience V stent (Abbott Vascular Devices, Santa Clara, CA) was deployed at 16 atmospheres (ATM). A 2.75 × 28?mm Xience V stent was then deployed at 16?ATM in the mid-segment, and postdilated
