In this paper, Rayleigh surface wave is studied at a stress free thermally insulated surface of a two-temperature thermoelastic solid half-space in absence of energy dissipation. The governing equations of two-temperature generalized thermoelastic medium without energy dissipation are solved for surface wave solutions. The appropriate particular solutions are applied to the required boundary conditions to obtain the frequency equation of the Rayleigh wave. Some special cases are also derived. The non-dimensional speed is computed numerically and shown graphically to show the dependence on the frequency and two-temperature parameter.
Gap non-union of the tibia is frequently
associated with deformity, infection and shortening. Ilizarov’s method of bone
transport was used in the management of twenty-five cases of gap non-union of
the tibia. The mean bone gap was 6.53 cm (range 4 to 12 cm).
Union was achieved in all cases within a mean
period of 11.12 months. The mean time taken for union, per centimeter of bone
gap was found to be 1.7 months/cm. Pin tract infection was the commonest complication,
seen in 9 cases (36%). The other complications encountered were neuropraxia (n = 3) deviation of the
transported bone segment (n = 7), buckling of skin at the advancing side of bone (n = 4), traumatic corticotomy (n = 3), incomplete corticotomy (n = 1), equinus deformity (n = 4), knee stiffness (n
(KD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder with unknown etiology, most commonly
manifesting as painless unilateral cervical lymphadenopathy or subcutaneous
masses in the head or neck region. The disease is characterized by a triad of
painless subcutaneous masses in the head or neck region, blood and tissue
eosinophilia, and markedly elevated serum immunoglobulin E levels. Kimura’s
disease is an unusual vascular tumor that typically occurs at 20 to 30 years of
age. There has been no documented case of malignant transformation; however,
recurrence rates after excision may be as high as 25%. Surgery and medical
therapy are useful for treatment. We present a 14 years old male developed a
unilateral cervical mass associated with KD. It was a recurrence of disease. As
a complete excisional resection of the mass already done 1 year back at some
other centre, we decided to give medical treatment for Kimura’s disease.
