Tumor markers and kinetics in prostate cancer: a mini-review
Farooq Ahmad Ganie,Mohd Lateef Wani,Shadab Nabi Wani,Mohd Saleem Wani
Journal of Solid Tumors , 2012, DOI: 10.5430/jst.v2n4p57
Abstract: The discovery and utilization of tumor markers have affected early detection, diagnosis, and staging and follow up of Prostate cancer and have improved curative rates. The goal of identifying different tumor markers in prostate cancer is to get the early diagnosis. One can also see the effect of treatment modality used and prognosticate the disease. In this review we intend to give a detailed account of different markers in prostate cancer. Besides Prostate Specific Antigen, Human kallikrein 2, Kallikrein-related peptidase 14, Prostate acid phosphatase, Cancer Antigen 15-3, Prostate-specific membrane antigen etc. are discussed in detail.

Reyaz Ahmad Lone,Mohd Lateef Wani,Shadab Nabi Wani,Abdul Gani Ahangar
Chest Disease Reports , 2012, DOI: 10.4081/cdr.2012.e9
Abstract: Pleuropulmonary blastoma is a rare childhood neoplasm accounting for less than one percent of all primary malignant lung tumours of children less than six years of age. Meta - stasis to central nervous system, orbit and iris, bone, contralateral lung and rarely adrenalglands, liver, kidney and pancreas has been described. We present a case of pleuropulmonary blastoma in a 3-year-old child who had a recurrence in less than three months, after surgical resection.
Vascular Injuries Caused by Tear Gas Shells: Surgical Challenge and Outcome
Mohd Lateef Wani,Ab Gani Ahanga,Gh Nabi Lone,Shyam Singh
Iranian Journal of Medical Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Background: Tear gas shells are used to disperse the mob during any type of street protests. Vascular injuries due to tear gas shells have not been reported. The present study was un-dertaken to analyse the pattern, presentation, management and outcome of vascular injury due to tear gas shells. Methods: Eighteen patients with vascular injury caused by tear gas shells from 1st Jan. 2008 to 31st Dec 2009 were studied. Patients with vascular injuries caused by causes other than tear gas shells were excluded from the study. Results: All patients were treated with reverse saphenous vein graft as segmental loss was less than 2.5 cm. Wound infection was the most common complication, followed by graft occlusion. Amputation rate was 16.66%. Associated nerve injury occurred in 44.44% of the patients. Conclusion: Tear gas shell injuries should not be taken lightly. They can cause injuries as serious as vascular injuries. Vascular injuries cased by tear gas shells require prompt revascularisation to improve limb salvage. De-spite proper revascularisation, patients have significant morbidity and need proper rehabilitation in the follow ups.
Delayed Presentation of Traumatic Diaphragmatic Hernia: a Diagnosis of Suspicion with Increased Morbidity and Mortality
Farooq Ahmad Ganie,Hafeezulla Lone,Ghulam Nabi Lone,Mohd Lateef Wani
Trauma Monthly , 2013, DOI: 10.5812/traumamon.7125
Abstract: Background: Diaphragmatic rupture due to blunt or penetrating injury may be a missed diagnosis in an acute setting and can present with a delayed complication with significantly increased morbidity and mortality.Objectives: The objective of this study is to better understand why diaphragmatic tears with delayed presentation and diagnosis are so often missed and why traumatic diaphragmatic tears are difficult to diagnose in emergency settings and how they present with grievous complications.Patients and Methods: Eleven patients with diaphragmatic hernias with delayed presentation and delayed diagnosis were operated within the last five years. All patients presented with different complications like gut gangrene or respiratory distress.Results: Out of eleven patients who were operated on for diaphragmatic hernia, three patients (27%) died. Three patients required colonic resection, one patient needed gastrectomy and one patient underwent esophagogastrectomy.Conclusions: A small diaphragmatic tear due to blunt trauma to the abdomen is difficult to diagnosis in acute settings due to ragged margins and possibly no herniated contents and usually present with a delayed complication. Therefore a careful examination of the entire traumatized area is the best approach in treating delayed presentation of traumatic diaphragmatic hernia prior to development of grievous complications.

International Journal of Surgical Oncology , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/981654
Abstract: Aim. The aim of this study was to see the clinical, pathological, and demographic profile of young patients with stomach carcinoma besides association with p53. Patients and Methods. Prospective study of young patients with stomach carcinoma from January 2005 to December 2009. A total of 50 patients with age less than 40 years were studied. Results. Male female ratio was 1?:?1.08 in young patients and 2.5?:?1 in older patients. A positive family history of stomach cancer in the first degree relatives was present in 10% of young patients. Resection was possible only in 50% young patients. 26% young patients underwent only palliative gastrojejunostomy. The most common operation was lower partial gastrectomy in 68%. Amongst the intraoperative findings peritoneal metastasis was seen in 17.4% in young patients. 50% young patients presented in stage IV as per AJCC classification ( value .004; sig.). None of the patients presented as stage 1 disease in young group. Conclusion. Early detection of stomach carcinoma is very important in all patients but in young patients it is of paramount importance. 1. Introduction Gastric cancer is the second leading cause of death due to malignancy worldwide and occurs most frequently in the age group of 50–70 years [1–3]. However, over the past half century several studies have reported on the clinical and pathological features of gastric carcinoma in young adults in the range of 2%–8% in different series [4]. The incidence of gastric cancer is the highest in Japan, China, south America and eastern Europe and the lowest in the United States [2]. Gastric cancer is the third most common cancer in Kashmir only superseded by esophageal and lung cancer [5]. Considerable evidence suggests the role of genetic factors in the pathogenesis of gastric carcinoma. Clustering of this disease within families has been reported in Bonaparte’s family. Napoleon, his father, his grand father, and several of his siblings died of cancer stomach [2]. Inherited or familial gastric cancer and hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) are common in patients younger than 40 years of age. Patients with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (Lynch syndrome II) are at increased risk of stomach cancer. First degree relatives of patients with gastric cancer have a two- to threefold increased risk of developing this disease [6]. There is an increased risk of gastric cancer in people with blood group A [2]. Diets rich in salted, smoked, or poorly preserved foods are associated with increased risk of cancer stomach, whereas diets rich in fruits and

Foreign Body in Tracheobronchial Tree
Shafkat A. Lone, Mohd. Lateef
JK Science : Journal of Medical Education & Research , 2004,
Abstract: A two year experience with the treatment of 50 patients (86% children) who were admitted forforeign body aspiration in the department of otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery isreviewed. The object of this study was to show the clinical manifestations, the radiological findings,the nature and distribution in the tracheobronchial tree and complications due to long standing foreignbodies in the bronchial tree. Males (35) were more commonly involved as compared to females (15)in the ratio of 2.3:1. Right main bronchus was involved in 24 patients (48%), left main bronchus in 15patients (30%) and trachea in 11 patients (22%). The most common foreign bodies found werebeans (24%), peas (18%), and corns (10%). The most frequent clinical manifestation was choking(60%) and the most frequent radiological finding was atelectasis (44%). The most serious complicationwas pneumothorax in 2 patients who needed intercostal chest tube. In conclusion, inspite of anobvious foreign body in the tracheobronchial tree many cases are not diagnosed because suddenchoking at the time of aspiration in children may not be noticed.

Olanrewaju Abdul Lateef,Mohd Faris Khamidi,Arazi Idrus
Australasian Journal of Construction Economics and Building , 2010,
Abstract: University buildings require maintenance in order to create a conducive environment that supports and stimulates learning, teaching, innovation, and research. The prime objective of maintenance is to ensure, as far as practicable, the continued peak performance of the building throughout its design life. This paper seeks to report the maintenance management system of a university institution in Malaysia. Primary data was gathered through the analysis of a case study. The objectives of the case study are to identify, describe and assess the maintenance management system used by the university. The major conclusion drawn from the case study was that although university building maintenance practices are corrective and cyclical there is a lack of a comprehensive maintenance management framework that guides the decision-making processes. The case study also revealed irregularities in the university’s maintenance management system.
