Absence of musculocutaneous nerve in the left axilla
Virupaxi RD,Shirol VS,Desai SP,Ravishankar MV
International Journal of Anatomical Variations , 2009,
Abstract: Variations of the arrangement and distribution of the lateral cord and its branches in the infraclavicular part of the brachial plexus are common in one or both axillae. These variations are important to the surgeons, neurologists, anesthetists and anatomists during surgery and dissection in the region of axilla. The present case report describes the absence of musculocutaneous nerve in the infraclavicular part of left brachial plexus, observed during routine dissection of a 40-year-old male Indian cadaver. On the right side usual origin and course of musculocutaneous nerve was seen. The clinical importances of these variations are discussed.
Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis caused by Aspergillus versicolor in a patient on mechanical ventilation
MV Pravin Charles,Noyal Mariya Joseph1,Joshy M Easow1,M Ravishankar2
Australasian Medical Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Aspergillus spp. often colonise the respiratory tract of critically ill patients in intensive care units and subsequently cause invasive disease. The risk of developing invasive disease is more in immunocompromised patients. Here we report a case of fatal invasive pulmonary aspergillosis caused by Aspergillus versicolor in a post-operative patient on mechanical ventilation, who did not respond to intravenous itraconazole. We then discuss the challenges involved in the accurate diagnosis of this condition and appropriate management.
Some of the problems in first year students’ academic writing in some SADC Universities
MV Mpepo
Inkanyiso: Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: There are many problems that confront English as a Second Language (ESL) learners in academic writing in some Southern African Development Community (SADC) universities. Some observers and commentators have noted that most graduates from Historically Black Universities (HBUs) exhibit poor performance in English when compared to neighbouring countries like Lesotho and Swaziland. One of these problems is the low proficiency which manifests itself in numerous syntactic errors and inappropriate lexical selection in their use of the target language. The forms or varieties are simply mistakes or errors which can be eradicated by teaching. The learners need to learn and understand the structure and nature of the English language. The deviations and innovations arise owing to a number of processes which are sketched out in the paper. This article also argues that the problem stems from the fact that the burden has been placed on departments of English which seem not to want to abandon the literary tradition. It presents some of the problems that African learners of English in HBUs seem to exhibit in academic writing when they enter university education. It discusses what is done and what needs to be done for first-year students when they enter university in HBUs. In HBUs English language programmes are not mandatory or do not exist, as is the case with most SADC universities and some Historically White Universities (HWUs). The conclusion suggests that it becomes necessary to mount similar English language programmes at first year level in institutions which do not have these programmes. It is hoped that this would improve learners’ language proficiency and hopefully competence as well as the way students acquire their education.

The ′HIS′ Classification (1988) - Contributions, Limitations And Revisions
Ravishankar K
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2002,
Abstract: The ′Headache′ Classification of the International Headache Society (HIS) (1988) has been a major landmark document. It has helped to develop a common language for understanding headaches and to unify research in this field. It is useful in most situations but because it is complex and cumbersome, it is underutilised in practice. This article analyses the contributions, the limitations and outlines the proposed changes in the revised classification to be launched in 2003. It is hoped that more neurologists would start using this in their routine practice.
Pitfalls In The Diagnosis Of Primary Headaches
Ravishankar K
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2002,
Abstract: Inspite of the fact that headache is one of the most common medical complaints, most headaches in practice continue to be underdiagnosed and undertreated. Probably because most of the recent advances in headache are written in rare speciality journals. Even today many treating physicians feel that nothing much can be done for headache patients! And, since more than 90% of headaches seen in practice are primary headaches, it is to be realised that matters have come a long way in the last decade and these is now enough evidence to prove that primary headaches are a genuine potentially treatable biological problem. It is therefore important that clinicians do not err in making the right diagnosis and choosing the correct drug options. This article discusses some of the traps which may result in the sub-optimal management of primary headaches and suggests measures to avoid these ′Pitfalls′.
Cluster Headache And Other Short-Lasting Headaches
Ravishankar K
Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology , 2002,
Abstract: Rare though it may be, cluster headache needs to be correctly diagnosed and specifically treated because it is the most painful of all primary headaches. An important reason why cluster headache and other recently described short-lasting headache syndromes that are now grouped together as trigeminal-autonomic cephalgias (TACs) continue to be suboptimally managed is because they often go unrecognised or are wrongly diagnosed as migraine. This article discusses the salient clinical features of cluster headache, the recent hypotheses regarding its pathophysiology, and the treatment options available to control it.

Performance Analysis of Unbalance Radial Feeder with Time Varying Composite Load  [PDF]
Jagdish Prasad Sharma, H. Ravishankar Kamath
Journal of Power and Energy Engineering (JPEE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jpee.2015.35005
Abstract: The focus of this paper is to present performance indices for unbalance radial feeder having different characteristic and composition of time varying static ZIP load models. These provide a framework for benchmarking of distribution automation projects. 15 minutes characteristics time interval for load flow and load modeling are considered to meet smart grid implementation criterion. A forward-backward sweep method is employed for load flow solution. Developed performance indices were illustrated on modified IEEE 37 node test feeder. Performance indices are useful for analysis, operational, planning and integration of stochastic renewable sources.
