Abstract: Introduction: Calcified forms with pseudo-tumor symptomatology of chronic subdural hematomas are rare. They are the result of slow bleeding over several years. The main etiology is related to the complications of the ventriculo-peritoneal shunt (VP). The purpose of this study was to recall the peculiarities and physiopathology of its pseudotumoral hematomas through 2 observations. Observation: Case 1: 8-year-old patient with a history of ventriculoperitoneal shunt at 3 months of age for congenital hydrocephalus, was admitted for functional impotence of the left-side of the body of insidious onset spreading over 9 months in a chronic headache, blurred vision and generalized seizure. CT scan showed a heterogeneous subdural hematoma of the right frontoparietal with calcifications. The patient underwent an excision by morcellation of a yellowish, friable partly calcific mass. The postoperative history was marked by a total recovery of the neurological deficit. There was no recurrence at 6 months postoperatively. Case 2: 11-year-old adolescent, treated with VP shunt at 6 months of age for post-meningitic hydrocephalus, was admitted for helmet headache, dizziness, lightheadedness and apathy progressing for 3 years. CT scan showed hypodensity of right peri-hemisphere with calcified linings, exerting a mass effect on the medial structures. The patient was given a block excision of a calcific mass with blood content. The evolution was marked by the complete resolution of seizures and hemiparesis. There was no recurrence at 6 months postoperatively. Conclusion: Calcified subdural hematomas are rare and consecutive to
The brain of the common vampire bat, Desmodus rotundus murinus (Wagner, 1840): a cytoarchitectural atlas
Bhatnagar, KP.;
Brazilian Journal of Biology , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1519-69842008000300017
Abstract: the vampire bat, desmodus rotundus, is exceptionally agile and stealthy in nature. feeding at night on cattle blood, it is a known scourge carrying rabies. it is endowed with a very high neocortical volume among bats, acute olfactory capabilities and an accessory olfactory system. these characteristics have resulted into an impressive number of neuroanatomical investigations except a long due atlas on its brain. this study presents a cytoarchitectural atlas of the brain of the common vampire, desmodus rotundus murinus, in the frontal plane, serially between the olfactory bulb and the medulla oblongata. twenty six selected sections are presented, each separated by about 300 to 560 microns. the atlas figures show lugol fast blue-cresyl echt violet stained hemisections with their matching half in a labeled line drawing. about 595 discrete brain structures (some repeating) have been identified. this study is likely to provide the accurate localization of nuclear groups, whole structures, fiber tracts, and interconnections to facilitate future neuroanatomical and neurophysiological investigations on the vampire brain.
“Informing of the child’s understanding, influencing his heart, and directing its practice”: Jonathan Edwards on education
KP Minkema
Acta Theologica , 2011,
Abstract: This article examines the role of education in Jonathan Edwards’ life and legacy, both the education he received in early eighteenth-century New England and his activities as a teacher, among the other vocations he followed. In particular, the methods and principles he employed as a teacher, both of English and Indian children and young people, are distinctive. Next, the essay turns to some selected figures within the Edwardsean tradition to show pedagogical changes and continuities.

The Dynamics of Ethnicity in a Multicultural Society
KP Kurgatt
Journal of Language, Technology & Entrepreneurship in Africa , 2009,
Abstract: Ethnicity is sometimes one of the misunderstood cultural aspects of national heritage in Africa. The mere mention of the term ‘ethnicity' or ‘ethnic origin' is apt to elicit negative reactions, basically because only one facet is assumed, namely ‘ethnocentricity', or to use a less anodyne term, ‘tribalism'. Yet there are many other positive facets to ethnicity. For example, ethnicity can be claimed, rightly so, as one aspect of national identity, which enriches Africa's national heritage(s).This paper attempts to highlight these dynamics through analyzing how one community, namely, the Nandi, manifests its ethnicity its social construction of reality, the differences in intra-ethnic identities that separate them from their immediate ‘cousins' as well as other neighbors, namely, the Maasai and Luo and the Kenyan nation as a whole. It is hoped that the answers to the above will help us to positively harness ethnic diversity to create a multicultural society at ease with itself Journal of Language, Technology & Entrepreneurship in Africa Vol. 1 (2) 2009: pp. 90-98
Epidemiology and Antimicrobial Resistance of Enteric Pathogens in Dhahira Region, Oman
KP Prakash
Iranian Journal of Public Health , 2008,
Abstract: Background: We reviewed the monthly laboratory surveillance reports and hospital laboratory database in Dhahira region, Oman."nMethods: All patients for whom a stool sample examination request was made from 1st January 2002 to 31st December 2006 (5 years) were included in the study. Antimicrobial resistance pattern was studied for 2 years period. The cultures were done using standard laboratory procedures and antibiotic sensitivity by Kirby Bauer disc diffusion method."nResults: Of the 85,210 stool samples examined, 18% showed positive result for one or more parasitic infection. The most common were E. hystolytica (7.1%), Giardia (7.9%) and E. coli (1.9%). A total of 7,830 cultures were done, among them 11.4% showed positive result for bacterial pathogen. The most common were Salmonella (5.8%) and Shigella species (4.4%). The antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of 265 bacterial pathogens were analyzed. Of the Shigella strains, 71.8% were resistant to trimethoprim/sulphamethoxazole (SXT) and 39.4% to ampicillin and 32.4% to tetracycline. Salmonella and E. coli strains were frequently resistant to ampicillin (12.5% and 47.7%, respectively)"nConclusion: This study provides important information on the prevalence and antimicrobial resistance pattern of enteric pathogens in Dhahira region population. SXT, ampicillin, and tetracycline are the drugs commonly associated with resistance.

Early weight bearing compared with non-weight bearing functional mobilization after operative treatment of an ankle fracture
KP Paudel
Journal of College of Medical Sciences-Nepal , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/jcmsn.v7i1.5972
Abstract: Ankle fractures are the most common types of fractures treated in orthopaedics. When to begin ankle movement and weight bearing and the type of immobilizing devices to use post-operatively have had more intense clinical study than most other aspects of ankle fracture treatment. Aim of this study is to compare the results of two functional methods of post-operative treatment in internally fixed ankle fractures, i.e. one after early weight bearing using walking plaster and the other after non-weight bearing functional mobilization in the first six weeks following stable internal fixation. This is a prospective, non-randomized study. Between March 2004 and February 2006, thirty- five patients with displaced ankle fractures treated by internal fixation were assigned in a way that every alternate patient fell in different groups. Group A patients, 17, were managed with a below-knee walking plaster and group B patients, 18 with non-weight bearing mobilization with crutches. Five patients were lost in follow up and 30 were followed regularly as in the protocol. There was a temporary benefit in subjective evaluation (63 v 48 points, student t test. P=0.262), return to work (53.8 v 72.9 days, student t test, p=0.079) for those with a below-knee walking plaster at six week. There were minimal differences between the groups in the loss of dorsal range of movement (14.7 v 13.1 degree) or in the overall clinical results at the first follow up. But the differences disappeared in any evaluation after three months. Both treatments were considered to be satisfactory and the treatment choice depends on the ability to mobilize or weight bearing, the type of work and personal preference.

Recommendations for enhancing the quality of traditional Chinese medicine clinical research reporting
LAO Lixing
Zhong Xi Yi Jie He Xue Bao , 2004,
Abstract: Evidence-based medicine (EBM) has drawn the attention of the medical community around the world and is rapidly becoming the standard in medical research. EBM requires both rigorous clinical trial research design, including adequate randomization and appropriate control, and accurate and thorough reporting of the findings of trials. Despite China's active research program, the majority of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) clinical research in the Chinese literature fails to meet world standards of clinical research reporting, largely due to insufficient and inadequate reporting. Because of rising world demand for information on TCM research, enhancing the quality of research reporting in Chinese journals is imperative. Quality of reporting is important in all aspects of a manuscript, including the introduction/background, materials and methods, results, and discussion/conclusion sections. TCM journal editors, who serve as gatekeepers of quality, must encourage higher quality clinical research reporting by setting and upholding publication standards
