Mental health services in rural India: challenges and prospects  [PDF]
Anant Kumar
Health (Health) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/health.2011.312126
Abstract: Mental health services in India are neglected area which needs immediate attention from the government, policymakers, and civil society organizations. Despite, National Mental Health Programme since 1982 and National Rural Health Mission, there has been a very little effort so far to provide mental health services in rural areas. With increase in population, changing life-style, unemployment, lack of social support and increasing insecurity, it is predicted that there would be a substantial increase in the number of people suffering from mental illness in rural areas. Considering the mental health needs of the rural community and the treatment gap, the paper is an attempt to remind and advocate for rural mental health services and suggest a model to reduce the treatment gap.
Almost periodic motion in complete space
Anant Kumar
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1986, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171286000789
Abstract: It is interesting that in a complete space an almost periodic motion is periodic if the null set is closed and if is not closed then every point of its trajectory is a limit point.
MHD Flow, and Heat Transfer with Effects of Buoyancy, Viscous and Joules Dissipation over a Nonlinear Vertical Stretching Porous Sheet with Partial Slip  [PDF]
M. Subhas Abel, Kulkarni Anant Kumar, R. Ravikumara
Engineering (ENG) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/eng.2011.33033
Abstract: In this paper, the problem of steady laminar two-dimensional boundary layer MHD flow and heat transfer of an incompressible viscous fluid with the presence of buoyancy force and viscous dissipation over an vertical nonlinear stretching sheet with partial slip is investigated numerically. Numerical solutions of the resulting nonlinear boundary value problem in the case when the sheet stretches with a velocity varying nonlinearly with the distance is carried out. The effects of for various values of suction parameter, magnetic parameter, Prandtl number, Eckert number, buoyancy parameter, nonlinear stretching parameter and slip parameter on flow and heat transfer characteristics is investigated.
Role of Cartilage as a Graft Material for Tympanic Membrane and in Middle Ear Reconstruction  [PDF]
Anant Chouhan, Bhuvnesh Kumar Singh, Praveen Chandra Verma
International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery (IJOHNS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijohns.2015.42012
Abstract: Objective: The work was planned to evaluate the results of cartilage graft in the surgical treatment of chronic suppurative otitis media. Study Design: A prospective study. Materials and Methods: The present study was a prospective study of tympanoplasties and tympanomastoid surgeries performed on 100 patients. The main outcome measures were both anatomical and functional in form of graft incorporation and postoperative hearing function. Results: Cartilage was used as tympanic membrane and/or ossicle graft in the cases. There were no immediate postoperative or long term complications of surgery except for 10 cases in which there was a failure of graft uptake. There was a 7.6-decibel (dB) improvement in mean air conduction threshold post-operatively. A mean closure of average air bone gap of 8.4 decibels (dB) was noted which was statistically significant. Conclusion: The cartilage graft is a very effective option for the repair of the conducting mechanism of the ear with good take-up rates, less chances of rejection or extrusion and very few significant complications. The thickness of cartilage creates stiffness that is more resistant than the fascia to the anatomic deformities caused by negative middle ear pressure thus improving the long term integrity of the graft.
Stable P and distal dynamical systems
S. S. Prasad,Anant Kumar
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1984, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171284000181
Abstract: In this paper we study the behavior of dynamical systems in uniform space which are Poisson stable and distal. The main results are that the trajectories of such motions are closed and every almost periodic motion is stable P and distal. In complete uniform space, this motion is periodic, Lagrange stable and recurrent.
Cleft Lip Surgical Intervention in Resource Constraint Settings: A Case Report  [PDF]
Anant Kumar, Loree K. Kalliainen
Health (Health) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/health.2016.85050
Abstract: Cleft lip and palate is a very common condition which is globally undertreated. This case report shows how cleft lip surgery can transform patient’s lives, self-perception, and their self-esteem through a visionary and adaptive leadership of a few social workers and medical doctors in resource constrained settings. The case report also shows that when treated, the benefits to the patient and their family are lifelong and disproportionately large compared to the degree of effort and cost of doing the reconstruction; and puts forth the case for educating physicians to maximize their societal benefit through work in resource-constrained settings.
Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy
Gupta Nitin,Raina Pamposh,Kumar Anant
Journal of Minimal Access Surgery , 2005,
Abstract: Of the various options for patients with end stage renal disease, kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for a suitable patient. The kidney for transplantation is retrieved from either a cadaver or a live donor. Living donor nephrectomy has been developed as a method to address the shortfall in cadaveric kidneys available for transplantation. Laparoscopic living donor nephrectomy (LLDN), by reducing postoperative pain, shortening convalescence, and improving the cosmetic outcome of the donor nephrectomy, has shown the potential to increase the number of living kidney donations further by removing some of the disincentives inherent to donation itself. The technique of LLDN has undergone evolution at different transplant centers and many modifications have been done to improve donor safety and recipient outcome. Virtually all donors eligible for an open surgical procedure may also undergo the laparoscopic operation. Various earlier contraindications to LDN, such as right donor kidney, multiple vessels, anomalous vasculature and obesity have been overcome with increasing experience. Laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy can be done transperitoneally or retroperitoneally on either side. The approach is most commonly transperitoneal, which allows adequate working space and easy dissection. A review of literature and our experience with regards to standard approach and the modifications is presented including a cost saving model for the developing countries. An assessment has been made, of the impact of LDN on the outcome of donor and the recipient.
Vesicovaginal fistula: An unusual complication of laparoscopic assisted nephroureterectomy
Pillai Rajiv,Patel Ameet,Kumar Anant
Journal of Minimal Access Surgery , 2006,
Abstract: We report a case of vesicovaginal fistula in 71-year-old lady who had previously undergone a lapascopic assisted nephroureterectomy for transitional cell carcinoma in her right ureter and kidney. The surgery was uncomplicated with no post-operative problems and was discharged on day on seven. She later presented five weeks following the initial operation with signs and symptoms suggestive of a vesicovaginal fistula, which was confirmed on cystogram and flexible cystosopy. She proceeded to have an abdominal (O′Connor′s) repair of the fistula together with cystodiathermy for a few superficial bladder recurrences. The area of the fistula (within the bladder) was noted to be tumour free. She had an uneventful post-operative recovery and was discharged from hospital on day 11. At six month follow-up, there was another superficial recurrence in the bladder that was resected, with no sign of fistula.
Chronic Dietary Administration of 2-Deoxy-D-Glucose Does Not Compromise Neurobehavioral Functions at Tumor Preventive Doses in Mice  [PDF]
Saurabh Singh, Mayank Kumar, Kailash Manda, Seenu Haridas, Anant Narayan Bhatt, Daman Saluja, Bilikere S. Dwarakanath

Abstract: Beneficial effects of dietary energy restriction (DER), including extension of life-span, reduction in cancer risk, anti-cancer effects and decrease in age related neurodegenerative diseases have been well established. Given that DER is difficult to implement in humans due to practical constraints, development of energy restriction mimetics (ERMs) is considered as a suitable alternative. Our recent studies have established the anti-tumor effects of the dietary administration of the glycolytic inhibitor 2-deoxy-D-glucose, a potential ERM, an alternative to DER; without any adverse effects on general physiology. Since functioning of the brain is critically dependent on glucose, we investigated the effects of chronic dietary 2-DG administration on the behavioural outcome in mice. Our findings based on a battery of neuro-behavioural tests clearly suggest that the chronic dietary administration of 2-DG that appreciably impairs the process of tumorigenesis has no adverse effect on the cognitive, affective and sensory-motor functions. Together with the maintenance of normal physiology reported by us earlier, these observations strengthen the potential of dietary 2-DG as a safe cancer preventive strategy.
