Salvaging a Psycho-Flexed Hand
Srivastava A,Gupta A,Kumar R,Gangadhar BN
Indian Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation , 2008,
Abstract: A 35 years old lady presented with clenched fist with the background of a psychiatric symptoms.Examination revealed psychotic features with predominant negative symptoms and secondary contractureof left hand. Presumptive diagnosis of psycho-flexed hand was made and referred to department of Psychiatricand Neurological Rehabilitation. Manipulation under anesthesia, corrective casting, splinting, localelectrotherapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy are established methods of managing contracturesin rehabilitation medicine. When contractures of hands are identified in patients with psychiatric illness,same principles can be utilized and can be managed effectively by combined and co-coordinated efforts of amultidisciplinary team.
Electroconvulsive Therapy In Neuropsychiatry : Relevance Of Seizure Parameters
Gangadhar BN,Girish K,Janakiramaiah N,Saravanan ESM
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2000,
Abstract: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is used to induce therapeutic seizures in various clinical conditions. It is specifically useful in depression, catatonia, patients with high suicidal risk, and those intolerant to drugs. Its beneficial effects surpass its side effects. Memory impairment is benign and transient. Its mechanism of action is unknown, though numerous neurotransmitters and neuroreceptors have been implicated. The standards of ECT practice are well established but still evolving in some particularly in unilateral ECT. Assessment of threshold by formula method may deliver higher stimulus dose compared with titration method. Cerebral seizure during ECT procedure is necessary. Motor (cuff method) and EEG seizure monitoring are mandatory. Recent studies have shown some EEG parameters (amplitude, fractal dimension, symmetry, and post ictal suppression) to be associated with therapeutic outcome. Besides seizure monitoring, measuring other physiological parameters such as heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) may be useful indicators of therapeutic response. Use of ECT in neurological conditions as well as its application in psychiatric illnesses associated with neurological disorders has also been reviewed briefly.
A rare cause of coffee-ground vomiting: Retrograde jejunogastric intussusception
K Gangadhar
South African Journal of Radiology , 2012,
Abstract: Retrograde jejunogastric intussusception is a well-recognised, rare, but potentially fatal long-term complication of gastrojejunostomy or Billroth II reconstruction. Only about 200 cases have been reported in the literature to date. Diagnosis of this condition is difficult in most cases. To avoid mortality, earlydiagnosis and prompt surgical intervention is mandatory. Since gastrojejunostomies with vagotomy are on a declining trend, it is extremely rare to come across such a complication. We report on such a patient who presented with haematemesis.
Strategies for Cultural Adaptation towards Solutions in Childhood Care Facility Design
BN Ifeanyi
African Research Review , 2009,
Abstract: Cultural Inheritance is an indispensable enduring facet of self- identity for both children and adults alike. It is the tradition, custom and way of life that guides and limits life practices. It is a common saying by cultural researchers that cultural understanding is normally established between ages five through to nine. Accommodation of cultural heritage in childhood care facility requires sensitive spatial organization and engagement of the physical environment to support culturally based activities and rituals. This paper outlined the importance of creating cultural reflective childhood care environments. It described the experiences of a design firm in creating schematic design for the model employer supported child care facility including cultural research process needed to create such and the application of cultural principles in a bid to finding solution against challenges encountered in childhood care facility design.
Achieving polio eradication in Nigeria: Prospects and challenges
BN Tagbo
Nigerian Journal of Paediatrics , 2013,
Abstract: The Global polio eradication initiative was launched in 1988 by the international community. Since then, tremendous progress has been made (99%). However, the last 1% of the journey has experienced several setbacks and rate of progress has slowed down in the last few years. Nigeria is one of the remaining 3 endemic countries in the world that has never interrupted the transmission of the poliovirus compared to more than 125 countries in 1988. What are the prospects and challenges to polio eradication in Nigeria? This paper discusses these and other relevant issues regarding polio eradication in Nigeria.
Epidemiology of blinding eye diseases in Cross River State, Nigeria as seen in University Of Calabar Teaching Hospital
BN Ekpenyong
Journal of the Nigerian Optometric Association , 2006,
Abstract: This study was to determine themagnitude anddistributionof blindingeye diseases in Cross River State. A total of 3903 case files of patients who visited the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH) from January 2001-September 2003 were reviewed. Secondly 580 patients who visited the hospital within 3 months of the study period October 2003- December 2003 were examined and questionnaires administered on them. The overall prevalence of blindness during the study period was 9.2%. Cataract caused blindness in nearly half of the cases. Other important causes of blindness include refractive error, glaucoma, retinal/macular diseases and corneal diseases. The overall prevalence of these identified blinding eye diseases was 56.3%. Refractive error (62.8%)was the most prevalent followed by cataract (15.4%), glaucoma (11%), retinal/macular diseases (7%) and corneal disease (3.7%). Results of analysis have shown that the prevalence of blinding eye diseases depends on age, sex and occupation. Increasing age and being male characterized the prevalence of cataract, glaucoma and retinal/macular diseases. More females were seen to have refractive error while more males and children had corneal diseases.The prevalence of blinding eye diseases was also seen more among people that do out door jobs.
Lignite zone as an indicator to lost circulation belt: a case study of some locations of Anambra State, Southeastern Nigeria
BN Nfor
Journal of Applied Sciences and Environmental Management , 2006,
Abstract: Eighteen (18) water boreholes were studied for lost circulation. When locations of the boreholes associated with lost circulation were plotted on the map of Anambra State a lost circulation belt was observed around the River Niger – Onitsha – Oba – Nnewi axis. Lost circulation intervals range between 20-50m and 75-90m depth and were found to be associated with lignite and peaty clay members of the Ogwashi-Asaba Formation and/or the Ameki/Bende Formation. This suggests that natural rather than anthropogenic factors are responsible for the widespread occurrence of lost circulation in the State, although the latter could aggravate the former. Lignite and peaty clay of the Ogwashi-Asaba and Ameki/Bende Formation cause lost circulation because they are woody to earthy in nature and are easily eroded when they occur above the water table. These conditions favour the development of vugs, leading to increase in permeability and porosity, making the formation prone to lost circulation. Pre-drilling geophysical, geological and hydrogeological investigations are recommended, since these would go a long way to identify the presence or absence of lignite and thus help to avert possible lost circulation intervals.

Biosorption of Malathion from Aqueous Solutions Using Herbal Leaves Powder  [PDF]
Tharakeswar Yadamari, Kalyan Yakkala, Gangadhar Battala, Ramakrishna Naidu Gurijala
American Journal of Analytical Chemistry (AJAC) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ajac.2011.228122
Abstract: Commonly available herbal leaves powder namely Achyranthes aspera (uthareni) and Phyllanthus niruri (Nela usiri) are used as biosorbents for the removal of malathion in the present investigation. The efficiency of the biosorbents is tested for the determination of malathion using batch experiments under controlled conditions as a function of pH, contact time, initial malation concentration and the optimization amount of biosorbents. The quantification of malathion in aqueous samples, before and after equilibration with biosorbents is carried out by existing spectrophotometric method based on the oxidation of malathion with excess N-bromosuccinimide (NBS) and Rhodamine B at (?max = 550 nm) is used for the unconsumed NBS. The biosorption capacities are found to be pH dependent. The maximum adsorption is noticed at pH = 6 with a contact time of 120 minutes. Biosorption equilibrium isotherms are plotted for malathion uptake capacity (Qe) against residual malathion concentration (Ce) in solution. The Qe versus Ce sorption isotherms relationship is expressed mathematically by Langmuir and Freundlich models. The removal of malathion using biosorbents Achyranthes aspera (Uthareni) and Phyllanthus niruri (Nela usiri) from spiked river water samples are found to be 94% and 96% respectively. The developed eco-friendly potential biosorbents indicate that the present method can be successfully applied for the quantitative determination and removal of malathion from real water samples.
