JK Science : Journal of Medical Education & Research , 2004,
Abstract: This study was designed to evaluate the possible complications following the use of intraoperativemitomycin-C in patients undergoing surgery for primary pterygium. Hundred eyes of 88 patients withprimary pterygium were operated upon using ''bare sclera technique''. Intraoperatively all the patientswere applied freshly prepared mitomycin-C 0.02% (0.2 mg/ml) on the bare sclera for a period of 5 minutes,after which the eyes were thoroughly rinsed with a sterile balanced salt solution. Postoperatively, none ofthe patients recieved mitomycin-C eye drops. After a mean postoperative followup of 14 months, 4 eyes(4%) of 4 patients developed thinning of the sclera with visualization of the underlying uveal tissue. Oneeye (1%) developed extreme thinning of the sclera with ectasia of the underlying uveal tissue, requiringa scleral patch. Recurrence was seen in 2 eyes (2%) only. The study shows that although intraoperativemitomycin-C (0.02%) reduces the recurrence of pterygium, it leads to serious, cosmetically unacceptableand even sight-threatening complications.
D1 versus Modified D2 Gastrectomy for Ca Stomach—A Prospective and Comparative Study  [PDF]
Alfar Nafae, Raiees Ahmad, Amber Aliya, Yawar Nisar, Pervaze Salam, Imtiyaz Ahmad
Surgical Science (SS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2016.71002
Abstract: Background: Carcinoma stomach remains a major malignancy and accounts for 10.4% of cancer related deaths globally. Despite improvement in chemo-radiotherapy, surgery remains the primary curative modality with special emphasis on lymphadenectomy. However the extent of lymphadenectomy performed by surgeons all over the world differs. Generally speaking, in Japan and Korea, the standard curative protocol would entail a “D2” lymphadenectomy whereas in the western world it would be considered unnecessary and the standard protocol would entail a standard “D1” lymphadenectomy. Thus prompting a newer surgical therapy of modified D2 in dissection in which pancreas and spleen are preserved. Lymph nodes surrounding stomach are divided into 20 stations and these are classified into three groups depending upon the location of the primary tumour. Aims & Objectives: The aims and objectives are to compare: 1) operative time of modified D2 gastrectomy with that of D1 gastrectomy; 2) operative morbidity and mortality of modified D2 gastrectomy with that of D1 gastrectomy; 3) the disease recurrence between modified D2 & D1 gastrectomy. Materials & Method: The study entitled D1 versus modified D2 gastrectomy for Ca stomach—a prospective, comparative study was conducted in the Postgraduate Department of General Surgery, Government Medical College, Srinagar as a prospective, comparative study over a period of three years 2012-2014. Patients with resectable gastric cancer were taken as subjects for the study and were divided in 2 groups that were closely matched to avoid any bias. Assessment of both the groups was done in identical fashion as per standard protocol. One group underwent gastrectomy with D1 lymph node dissection whereas the other group underwent gastrectomy with a modified D2 lymph node dissection (spleen and pancreas preservation). The type of lymphadenectomy was decided on randomization (simple random sampling). Results: After comparing the two procedures, it was noted that: 1) modified D2 lymphadenectomy took on an average 2 hours more than D1 gastrectomy; 2) operative mortality was same in both the procedures. Operative morbidity was seen more in modified D2 group than D1 group however this difference was statistically insignificant; 3) number of recurrence was quite significant in D1 group but no recurrence was seen in modified D2 group. Conclusion: On the basis of the study, we recommend that modified D2 gastrectomy is a better procedure than D1

Surgical Science (SS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2016.710063
Abstract: Objectives: To identify independent risk factors for abdominal wound dehiscence and develop a risk model to recognize high risk patients. Methods: The samples studied were patients who underwent midline laparotomy in the department of surgery, SMHS Hospital Srinagar from March 2009 to April 2015. For each case of abdominal wound dehiscence, three controls were selected from a group of patients who had undergone open abdominal surgery as close as possible in time. Preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative variables and in-hospital mortality were studied for all patients. Cases were compared with controls using the chi-square test or the Mann-Whitney U-test for categorical or continuous data, respectively. Subsequently, multivariate stepwise logistic regression with backwards elimination test used to identify main independent risk factors of abdominal wound dehiscence. The resulting regression coefficients for the major risk factors were used as weights for these variables to calculate a risk score for abdominal wound dehiscence. Results: 140 cases of abdominal wound dehiscence were reported and compared with 420 selected controls. All variables that were significant in univariate analyses were entered in a multivariate stepwise logistic regression to determine which variables were significant independent risk factors. Major independent risk factors were male gender, chronic pulmonary disease, corticosteroid use, smoking, obesity, anemia, jaundice, ascites, and sepsis, type of surgery, postoperative coughing, and wound infection. Based on these findings, a risk model was developed. Conclusions: The model can give an estimate of the risk of abdominal wound dehiscence for individual patients. High-risk patients may be planned preventive wound closing with reinforcements as mesh.

Abstract: In this paper, security attacks in ARP are classified and logically organized/represented in a more lucid manner.ARP provides no authentication mechanism to the incoming request packets this is the reason that any client can forge an ARP message contains malicious information to poison the ARP cache of target host. There are many possible attacks on ARP which can make the communication unsecure such as man-in-the-middle (MITM), Denial of service (DOS) and cloning attack.

JK Science : Journal of Medical Education & Research , 2003,
Abstract: To compare the ocular hypotensive efficacy and side effects of either latanoprost or dorzolamide inpatients with open angle glaucoma, forty-four patients with open angle glaucoma were included in arandomized, double masked study for a period of 3 months. All previous glaucoma medications werestopped and the patients were randomized to receive either latanoprost 0.005% at bed time ordorzolamide 2% three times daily. After 3 months, the mean reduction in rap was 6.8 (SD 3.1) mmHg in the latanoprost group as compared to 4.7 (SD 2.4) mm Hg in the dorzolamide group. Thedifference of 2.1 nun Hg was highly significant. Both the drugs were well tolerated systemically andlocally. Latanoprost was superior to dorzolamide in reducing the mean lOP and thus has the potential forbecoming the first line treatment in glaucoma.

Abstract: In traditional systems of medicine, different parts (leaves, stem, flower, root, seeds and even whole plant) of Ocimum sanctum Linn. (known as Tulsi in Hindi), a small herb seen throughout India, have been recommended for the treatment of bronchitis, bronchial asthma, malaria, diarrhea, dysentery, skin diseases, arthritis, painful eye diseases, chronic fever, insect bite etc. The hydro-distilled volatile oil of the O. sanctum leaves was analyzed using GC and GC-MS. The fragmentation patterns of mass spectra were compared with those of the spectrometer data base using NBS 54 AL and Wiley L a€“ built libraries and also with those reported in the literature. Many constituents were identified by comparing their retention indices with those of authentic standards available in authora€ s laboratory.

Effect of Rotation, Magnetic Field and Initial Stresses on Propagation of Plane Waves in Transversely Isotropic Dissipative Half Space  [PDF]
Sushant Shekhar, Imtiyaz A. Parvez
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/am.2013.48A015

The problem regarding the reflection of plane waves in a transversely isotropic dissipative medium is considered, in which we are studying about the reflection of incidence waves in initially stressed dissipative half space. After solving the governing equations, we find the two complex quasi-P (qP) and quasi-SV (qSV) waves. The occurrence of reflected waves is studied to calculate the reflection coefficient and the energy partition of incidence wave at the plane boundary of the dissipative medium. Numerical example is considered for the reflection coefficient and the partition of incident energy, in which we study about the effect of rotation, initial stresses and magnetic field.
