Abstract: [english] Epiploic appendagitis is a rare cause of acute abdomen. Depending on the site of occurrence, it can mimic any cause of acute abdomen or disease of the colon and caecal appendix; making its preoperative diagnosis very difficult. We present here a case of a 7-year-old boy misdiagnosed preoperatively as acute appendicitis and later on, upon surgical exploration, found to have caecal appendagitis. The affected epiploic appendage was removed and the patient had an uneventful recovery. We also review the relevant literature and discuss the measures to overcome this diagnostic dilemma. General surgeons should be aware of this self-limiting disease and consider it as a differential diagnosis of acute abdomen. [german] Appendicitis epiploica oder epiploische Appendagitis ist eine seltene Ursache des akuten Abdomens. Je nach Ort des Auftretens kann sie jede Ursache für akuten Unterleibsschmerz oder Erkrankungen des Dickdarms und Appendix vermiformis imitieren, was ihre pr operative Diagnose sehr schwierig macht. Wir pr sentieren hier den Fall eines alten Jungen, bei dem pr operativ akute Blinddarmentzündung diagnostiziert wurde. Beim chirurgischen Eingriff stellte sich dann eine Appendicitis epiploica des Blinddarms als Befund heraus. Der betroffene Appendix epiploica wurde entfernt und der Patient erholte sich ohne besondere Vorkommnisse. Wir geben auch eine übersicht über die relevante Literatur und diskutieren die Ma nahmen, um dieses diagnostische Dilemma zu überwinden. Allgemeine Chirurgen sollten sich dieser selbstlimitierenden Krankheit bewusst sein und sie als eine Differentialdiagnose bei akutem Abdomen in Betracht ziehen.

Showkat Majeed Kakroo,Arshad Rashid,Ajaz Ahmad Wani,Zahida Akhtar,Manzoor Ahamad Chalkoo,Asim Rafiq Laharwal
International Journal of Surgical Oncology , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/674965
Abstract: Background. aim of this study was to compare the role of diagnostic laparoscopy and contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) of abdomen in the staging of stomach carcinoma. Methods. This was a prospective study conducted in a tertiary care hospital over a period of two years and included 50 patients of endoscopy and biopsy proven stomach carcinoma that were found to be operable on CECT. Diagnostic laparoscopy was performed in all patients before proceeding to a formal laparotomy. Results. Metastasis was detected at diagnostic laparoscopy in 14 (28%) patients. CECT correctly identified the T stage in 22 (61%) patients. Overall accuracy of CECT for T staging was 74% with a a sensitivity of 65% and a specificity of 79%. Laparoscopy correctly identified the T stage in 26 (72%) patients. Overall accuracy of laparoscopy for T staging was 81% with a sensitivity of 76% and specificity of 86%. the most common N stage on CECT was N0 (50%). CECT correctly identified the N stage in 26 (72%) patients. Overall accuracy of CECT for N staging was 86% with a sensitivity of 50% and a specificity of 90%. the most common N stage on laparoscopy was N0 and N2 (42% each). Laparoscopy correctly identified the N stage in 27 (75%) patients. Overall accuracy of Laparoscopy for N staging was 88% with a sensitivity of 53% and specificity of 91%. Conclusion. Laparoscopy is a valuable technique in staging of stomach carcinoma and has an important role in the detection of intra-abdominal metastasis missed by CECT. 1. Introduction Gastric cancer remains one of the most common causes of death from cancer worldwide, especially in our part of the world. In Kashmir, the incidence rates for gastric cancer have been estimated at 36.7/100000 per year in men and 9.9/100000 per annum in women, respectively [1]. As the multidisciplinary management of gastrointestinal cancer has evolved over the last decade, an accurate extent of disease workup has become essential for treatment planning. Even after a thorough radiological workup, many patients with stomach carcinoma are diagnosed as unresectable or metastatic on exploratory laparotomy. For the subgroup of patients who do not require palliation, exploration confers little benefit and may, on the contrary, be associated with significant morbidity and mortality [2]. Since the introduction of contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) scan some 30 years back, the staging workup of gastric carcinoma has underwent a boom [3–5]. CECT is used preoperatively primarily to determine the stage and extragastric spread of the carcinoma but has the

Abstract: Objectives: To determine the feasibility and patient’s outcome of laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal mesh hernioplasty for inguinal hernias. Patients and Methods: This study was carried out from March 2011 to April 2014. A total of 130 patients underwent laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal mesh hernioplasty (TAPP) for uncomplicated inguinal hernia. Of this, 10 patients presenting with bilateral inguinal hernias were operated in the single sitting. A 15 cm × 12 cm polypropylene mesh was used in all cases. Operative morbidity, postoperative pain, seroma formation, evidence of superficial infection, chronic groin pain and hernia recurrence were noted. The majority of the patients were discharged within 24 hours and follow-up was done at 1 week, 1 month, and 6 months. Results: 130 patients presenting with uncomplicated inguinal hernias were operated over a period of three years in the department of surgery, Govt. Medical College Srinagar. The mean age of the patients was 39.18 years (range: 18 - 70 years). The median duration of operation was 48.5 minutes (range: 18 - 120 minutes). None of the procedure was converted to open inguinal hernia repair. Postoperative pain was observed in 9.23% of the cases and was easily controlled by oral analgesics. Six patients (4.62%) developed seroma, out of which one required aspiration while others settled conservatively. Two patients (1.54%) developed wound infection and one patient (0.77%) had recurrence. None of the patients developed scrotal hematoma or neuralgia. Return to normal activity after TAPP repair was found to be after a median of 16.1 days. Conclusion: Transabdominal preperitoneal repair for inguinal hernia using proline mesh may be a safe and effective procedure with low morbidity, early return to normal activity and with a very low recurrence after six months follow-up.

Indus Water Treaty Vis-à-vis International Transboundary Water Management Principles
Raja Nazakat,Rafiq Ahamad
Golden Research Thoughts , 2012, DOI: 10.9780/22315063
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to examine the relevance of Indus basin treaty with internationally recognized transboundary water resources management principles. The Indus basin treaty known as the Indus Water Treaty (IWT) was signed between India and Pakistan in 1960. The IWT incorporates various international transboundary water resources management principles, e.g. the principle of equitable and reasonable utilization, an obligation not to cause significant harm, principles of cooperation, data exchange, notification, consultation and the peaceful settlement of disputes. The analysis of Indus water treaty with internationally recognized principles reveals that these internationally recognized principles have provided the common ground and guidelines for IWT arbitration. Meanwhile its principles have provided guidelines for various water management principles. As for as implementation of IWT is concerned, India and Pakistan have happily accepted it and able to curb water dispute.

Network Security Using Job Oriented Architecture (SUJOA)
Tariq Ahamad,Abdullah Aljumah
International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2013,
Abstract: ABSTRACT In the modern world operating system, various security systems (Collection of various security components) are already installed or can be directly installed in it. They are responsible for checking the complete node for suspicious behaviour. There are some intrusions having the ability to hide themselves from being checked called armouring intrusions. In this research article we present alternative organisation of security systems. To distinguish operating system applications and security systems, the node is completely virtualized with current virtualized systems. The node is then checked by security systems from outside and the right security components are provided through job oriented architecture. Since they run on a virtual machine the infected nodes can be halted, duplicated and moved to other nodes for further analysis and legal aspects. The coordinated architecture analysed in this research article and the results of a preliminary implementation with positive results are discussed.

Maksud Ahamad,Saman Shahid
International Journal on Computer Science and Engineering , 2012,
Abstract: In this work, a new method is presented as a mingle of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Multi-Fractal Dimension analysis (MFD) for feature extraction. Proposed method makes use of best decisiontaken from both the methods and make use of fewer and effective features than traditional algorithms without compromise in recognition accuracy. In order to ease the pre-processing we controlled the variance in each mode. It is done to train the system to understand and recognize facial variance present in image. Experiments with different datasets show that proposed method is more suitable for larger dataset, with higher efficiency.
