Delayed Presentation of Traumatic Diaphragmatic Hernia: a Diagnosis of Suspicion with Increased Morbidity and Mortality
Farooq Ahmad Ganie,Hafeezulla Lone,Ghulam Nabi Lone,Mohd Lateef Wani
Trauma Monthly , 2013, DOI: 10.5812/traumamon.7125
Abstract: Background: Diaphragmatic rupture due to blunt or penetrating injury may be a missed diagnosis in an acute setting and can present with a delayed complication with significantly increased morbidity and mortality.Objectives: The objective of this study is to better understand why diaphragmatic tears with delayed presentation and diagnosis are so often missed and why traumatic diaphragmatic tears are difficult to diagnose in emergency settings and how they present with grievous complications.Patients and Methods: Eleven patients with diaphragmatic hernias with delayed presentation and delayed diagnosis were operated within the last five years. All patients presented with different complications like gut gangrene or respiratory distress.Results: Out of eleven patients who were operated on for diaphragmatic hernia, three patients (27%) died. Three patients required colonic resection, one patient needed gastrectomy and one patient underwent esophagogastrectomy.Conclusions: A small diaphragmatic tear due to blunt trauma to the abdomen is difficult to diagnosis in acute settings due to ragged margins and possibly no herniated contents and usually present with a delayed complication. Therefore a careful examination of the entire traumatized area is the best approach in treating delayed presentation of traumatic diaphragmatic hernia prior to development of grievous complications.

Ahmad, Farooq;
Sociedade & Natureza , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1982-45132008000100012
Abstract: the proposed study strives to provide an overall picture for establishing a relationship of indigenous rainwater harvesting technology and its impact in poverty alleviation. the topographic form and the soil characteristics of cholistan is the best catchment area for rainwater harvesting. different profiles point out that the area is very poorly drained, capable of generating maximum runoff after absorbing minimum water. water intake characteristics of fine textured soils show that infiltration rate is low to very low. findings show that there is direct relationship between water availability and poverty reduction. study also sheds light on both strengths and limitations of the indigenous technology on reducing rural poverty and recommends using this technology along with modern water harvesting techniques.

The Professional Medical Journal , 1997,
Abstract: Typhoid enteric perforation is a common surgical problem in our country and various methods of itstreatment are unsatisfactory. OBJECTIVES: 1. To compare the results of simple closure and wedge reaction.2. To evaluate and compare the post-operative complications. DESIGN: Prospective study SETTING:Bahawal Victoria hospital, Bahawalpur. PERIOD: June 1994 to March 1996. PATIENTS: 49 Laparotomyproven patients of single typhoid PERFORATIN. Methods: Sequentially one patient was treated b simpleclosure and other by wedge resection. Repair failure, intestinal fistula, burst abdomen, superficial woundinfection and intra-peritoneal abscess formation were compared following these two procedures. RESULTS:Complications after simple closure were wound infection 33%, leakage from repair 21% wound dehiscence37% and residual abscess 25% as compared to wedge resection where these complications were 8%, 4%,an4% and 8% respectively. Conclusions: Wedge resection is superior to simple closure and is recommendedas the procedure of choice in solitary typhoid perforation.

The Professional Medical Journal , 2007,
Abstract: Objective: To find out the association of epidural analgesia duringlabour with long termbackache. Design: A randomized controlled trial. Setting: Combined Military Hospital Rawalpindi.Period: March 2002 to Feb 2003. Material and Methods: 100 randomized to epidural group and 100 randomized tonon-epidural group. In the follow up study 92 women were from the epidural group and 89 from the non-epidural group.Results: There were no significant differences between groups in demographic details or other key characteristics.There were no significant differences in the onset or duration of low back pain. There were no differences in selfreported measures of disability in activities of daily living and no significant differences in measurements of spinalmobility. Conclusions: The incidence of new long term backache was not significantly increased in women whoreceived epidural analgesia in labour. Motor block resulting from epidural local anaesthetic administration was not asignificant factor in the development of backache.

GIS, GPS AND REMOTE SENSING APPLICATION TO INVESTIGATE AGRICULTURAL POTENTIAL IN CHOLISTAN
Farooq Ahmad
Revista Sociedade & Natureza , 2007,
Abstract: Agriculture plays the most important part in the economy of our country from macro perspective,while an equally important part in our social setup from a micro perspective. The ecologicalsystem of Cholistan desert is highly delicate and has gone under tremendous changes broughtupon by physical and mainly by human interventions. The rapid development and integrationof spatial technologies such as Geographic Information System, Global Positioning System,and Remote Sensing, have created many new tools for professionals, but have also widenedthe “digital divide”, leaving many with little understanding of the technology and potentialapplications. Remote sensing can provide valuable, timely and even predicted informationabout environment as an important basis for sustainable development. Geographic InformationSystem can provide effective tools for decision makers. The uses of GIS, GPS, and RS technologies,either individually or in combination, span a broad range of applications and degreesof complexity. It facilitates cooperative approaches and with the integration of GIS, there willbe a whole new framework for organizations and society to work together and make decisions.However, an integrated GIS based database management system handles this highly significanttask to make our country more prosper among Nations.

Sakeena Qadir, Ishfak Hussain Wani, Shaista Rafiq, Showkat Ahmad Ganie, Akbar Masood, Rabia Hamid
Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology (ABB) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/abb.2013.411133
Abstract:

Indigofera heterantha commonly called indigo bush is a member of leguminoseae family found in the Himalayan region of Kashmir. A lectin has been isolated from the seeds of Indigofera heterantha by the purification procedure involving anion exchange chromatography on DEAE-cellulose followed by gel filtration chromatography on Sephadex G 100. Molecular characterization of the lectin was done by gel filtration and SDS-PAGE. Activity of the lectin was checked by hemagglutination assay and the sugar specificity by sugar inhibition tests. The antimicrobial activity of the purified lectin was carried out by Agar disc diffusion using appropriate standards. On the ion exchange column, the bound protein when eluted with 0-0.5 M NaCl gradient emerged as three peaks—peak I, peak II and peak III out of which only peak II showed the hemagglutinating activity. The lectin further resolved into two peaks G1 and G2 on gel filtration, with the lectin activity residing in G1, corresponding to a molecular weight of 70 KDa. The purified lectin named as Indigofera heterantha Lectin (IHL) produced a single band on SDS PAGE (18 KDa), revealing the tetrameric nature of the lectin. It agglutinated human erythrocytes (A, B, AB, and O). Hemagglutination was inhibited by D-galactose, Dmannose and D-arabinose. The lectin is reasonably thermostable showing full activity within a temperature range of 30°C to 90°C. pH stability of the lectin falls in the range of 2-9. IHL demonstrated a remarkable antibacterial activity against the pathogenic bacteria Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Bacillus subtilis. IHL also inhibited the growth
