Acute ST segment elevation MI with Normal Coronaries
M Barakoti,SC Jha,SM Acharya,CM Paudel
Nepalese Heart Journal , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/njh.v8i1.8335
Abstract: A 45 year-old man with no history of cardiac disease presented to the emergency department with typical angina chest pain of >24 hours duration. He was not thormbolyzed due to late presentation. Having elevated troponin and CK-MB levels and an electrocardiogram demonstrating anterolateral ST segment elevation and persistent of angina pain prompted coronary angiography which could be done only after 3 weeks of symptom onset due to financial constraint; which revealed coronary vessels free of significant disease. An echocardiogram showed dilatation of all cardiac chambers with hypokinesia of anterior wall and mid-septum and akinesia of apex. There was moderate mitral regurgitation and moderate tricuspid regurgitation and moderate systolic dysfunction. A number of conditions can lead to ST segment elevation MI with normal epicardial coronary anatomy. We report a case possibly due to autothrombolysis. Treatment to such cases would be symptomatic drug therapy with reassurance and risk factor reduction. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/njh.v8i1.8335 Nepalese Heart Journal Vol.8(1) 2011 pp.33-36

Hypertension in the elderly: Are we all on the same wavelength?
Sadip Pant,Pritam Neupane,Khatri Chhetri Ramesh,Murari Barakoti
World Journal of Cardiology , 2011, DOI: 10.4330/wjc.v3.i8.263
Abstract: Hypertension is of frequent occurrence in the elderly population. Isolated systolic hypertension (ISH) accounts for the majority of cases of hypertension in the elderly. ISH is associated with a 2-4-fold increase in the risk of myocardial infarction, left ventricular hypertrophy, renal dysfunction, stroke, and cardiovascular mortality. There have been many studies to determine the optimal treatment for hypertension in the elderly. Why, when and how to treat hypertension in the elderly was the scope of the majority of these trials. Despite countless efforts many aspects remain obscure. While a number of novel drugs are being developed, the issue of whether all antihypertensive drugs bestow parallel benefits or whether some agents offer a therapeutic advantage beyond blood pressure control remains of crucial importance. Furthermore, the response of the elderly to different antihypertensive agents also differs from that of younger patients and may explain some of the disparities in outcomes of trials conducted in elderly patients with hypertension.

Nepal Journal of Science and Technology , 2012, DOI: 10.3126/njst.v13i2.7715
Abstract: An experiment under the scaling up project of ARS Pakhribas was conducted to identify quality and compare the cultivated and wild Chiraito ( Swertia chirayita ) samples collected from eastern, central and western regions hill districts during 2004. This work aimed to identify best sites/ districts for quality production of this important medicinal herb through cultivation and conservation for initiating export of value added quality product in a sustainable way. Processed product is cheaper to send the overseas market as the volume and weight are decreased. Quality analysis is necessary to ensure quality standard of international market in the context of WTO. Assessment of the collected samples was done by quantifying the extract content and analyzing bitter principle in the Herbs Production and Processing Company lab, Kathmandu. The result revealed that extract content and bitter principle percent varied depending upon different agro-eco growing conditions and extraction method. Hot extraction gave more extract of the plant than cold percolation method. Wild samples, in general, contained higher bitter principle than cultivated, whereas extract content was higher in cultivated Chiraito. The international market could be better ensured with such study result. Nepal Journal of Science and Technology Vol. 13, No. 2 (2012) 57-62 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/njst.v13i2.7715

U K Sharma,B K Shrestha,S Rijal,B Bijukachhe,R Barakoti,B Banskota,I Pradhan,A K Banskota
Kathmandu University Medical Journal , 2011, DOI: 10.3126/kumj.v9i3.6300
Abstract: Background The traumatic or degenerative internal derangement of the knee requires certain investigations for the establishment of diagnosis, in addition to clinical history and a thorough physical examination. The use of arthrography and arthroscopy improves the accuracy of the diagnosis. MRI scanning of the knee joint has often been regarded as the noninvasive alternative to diagnostic arthroscopy. Objective The purpose of the study was to correlate clinical and low field MRI findings with arthroscopy in internal derangement of the knee. Methods Forty one patients with suspected internal derangement of the knee were subjected to MR examination followed by arthroscopy. Clinical criteria used were history, mode of injury, Mc Murray’s, Apley’s grinding, Thessaly’s test for meniscal injury. Drawer test was considered to be essential for clinical diagnosis of cruciate ligament injury. MRI of the knee was performed in low field open magnet (0.35T, Magnetom C, Seimens). Arthroscopy was done within two months of MR examination and was considered gold standard for the internal derangement of the knee. Results The sensitivity, specificity, diagnostic accuracy of clinical examination were 96.1%, 33.3% and 73.1% respectively for medial meniscal tear; 38.4%, 96.4% and 78.1% respectively for lateral meniscal tear. The sensitivity, specificity, diagnostic accuracy of MRI were 92.3%,100% and 95.1% for medial meniscal tear; 84.6%96.4% and 92.6% respectively for lateral meniscal tear. Conclusion Clinical examination showed higher sensitivity for medial meniscal tear compared to MRI, however with low specificity and diagnostic accuracy. Low field MRI showed high sensitivity, specificity, diagnostic accuracy for meniscal and cruciate ligament injury, in addition to associated derangement like articular cartilage damage, synovial thickening.

Study of Duct Characteristics Deduced from Low Latitude Ground Observations of Day-Time Whistler at Jammu  [PDF]
M. Altaf, M. M. Ahmad
International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IJAA) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijaa.2013.33032

Propagation characteristics of low latitude whistler duct characteristics have been investigated based on day-time measurements at Jammu. The morphogical characteristics of low latitude whistlers are discussed and compared with characteristics of middle and high latitude whistlers. The Max. electron density (Nm) at the height of the ionosphere obtained from whistler dispersion comes out to be higher than that of the background which is in accordance with the characteristics of whistler duct. The equivalent width is found to be close to the satellite observations and the characteristics of whistler duct in low latitude ionosphere are similar to those in middle and high latitude ionosphere. The width of ducts estimated from the diffuseness of the whistler track observed during magnetic storm is found to lie in the range of 50 - 200 Km.

Postischemic Lower Extremity Wounds Treated with and without Negative Pressure Dressing  [PDF]
Surgical Science (SS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ss.2012.37075
Abstract: Background: Vacuum-assisted dressing is a noninvasive closure system of the wound, which makes localized and controlled negative pressure. Its mechanical tension reduces edema, stimulates granulation tissue formation and angiogenesis, and prepares the wound bed for closure. In this study, a patient has been presented, who suffered from serious lower extremity wounds due to arterial emboli, one of her wounds has been treated with vacuum-assisted dressing and the other with conventional dressing to evaluate the efficacy of vacuum-assisted dressing in acute ischemic wounds. Methods: A 65-year-old female patient was admitted to the emergency clinic, due to complaint of severe pain in her right lower extremity which suggested an acute arterial occlusion. She immediately underwent an embolectomy operation; however, a few days later, severe ischemia on the leg and foot became appearant. All of the necrosis was sharply debrided under sterile conditions in the operating room, and then lower leg wound was covered with vacuum-assisted dressing, also calcaneal wound was dressed with silver sulphadiazine. Results: Eighteen days after the first dressing with negative pressure, distal leg wound became ready for closure, whereas, enough granulation tissue over the calcaneal area developed merely thirty-four days later. Calcaneal wound closed spontaneously within fifty-three days. Conclusions: When dealing with this experience, using the negative pressure dressing in patient with severe lower limb wounds following arterial emboli, accelerates wound healing by means of developing the granulation tissue, and rapidly prepares the wound for closure, so it may reduce the risk of amputation.
