Accumulated moderate physical activity (PA) for 30 min in a day is the only recommended treatment of prehypertension.We investigated autonomic modulation as a possible mechanism for the decrease in blood pressure (BP) during the rest periods in each 10 min session of PA.We conducted a single-blind randomized multi-arm control trial on 40 prehypertensive (pre-HT) young male adults.Participants were randomly divided by using random number table into four groups. Control (no intervention); Group 1 (walking at 50% of predicted VOSignificant diastolic BP (DBP) reduction (Reduction in BP was observed during the rest period after each 10 min session of PAcumm irrespective of the intensity of PA. Autonomic modulation does not seem to be the possible mechanism for the reduction in BP during the sessions.

Background: Cataracts are a major cause of childhood blindness globally. Although surgically treatable, it is unclear whether children would benefit from such interventions beyond the first few years of life, which are believed to constitute 'critical' periods for visual development.Aims To study visual acuity outcomes after late treatment of early-onset cataracts and also to determine whether there are longitudinal changes in postoperative acuity.Methods: We identified 53 children with dense cataracts with an onset within the first half-year after birth through a survey of over 20 000 rural children in India. All had accompanying nystagmus and were older than 8 years of age at the time of treatment. They underwent bilateral cataract surgery and intraocular lens implantation. We then assessed their best-corrected visual acuity 6 weeks and 6 months after surgery.Results: 48 children from the pool of 53 showed improvement in their visual acuity after surgery. Our longitudinal assessments demonstrated further improvements in visual acuity for the majority of these children proceeding from the 6-week to 6-month assessment. Interestingly, older children in our subject pool did not differ significantly from the younger ones in the extent of improvement they exhibit.Conclusions: and relevance Our results demonstrate that not only can significant vision be acquired until late in childhood, but that neural processes underlying even basic aspects of vision like resolution acuity remain malleable until at least adolescence. These data argue for the provision of cataract treatment to all children, irrespective of their age.

The objective of this study was to investigate the incidence of sensory impairment of the lingual nerves following lower third molar removal and to compare the outcome with various operative variables. A total of 1200 mandibular third molars were removed under local anaesthesia. Predictor variables were categorized as lingual flap retraction, tooth sectioning, and buccal guttering. The outcome variable was the presence or absence of lingual nerve impairment. Different operative techniques were performed to identify independent predictors. Of the 1200 patients, 67 (5.6%) experienced transient sensory impairment at the 1-week follow-up. In all cases this resolved completely during the study period, except for four (0.3%) patients who suffered permanent impairment of lingual nerve function. Factors that predicted lingual nerve injury were lingual flap retraction, tooth sectioning, and buccal guttering. The incidence of lingual nerve injury was greater when combinations of these operative variables were used. © 2014 International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Introduction. Major depressive disorder (MDD) and bipolar affective disorder (BAD) are among the leading causes of disability. These are often associated with widespread impairments in all domains of functioning including relational, occupational, and social. The main aim of the study was to examine and compare nature and extent of psychosocial impairment of patients with MDD and BAD during depressive phase. Methodology. 96 patients (48 in MDD group and 48 in BAD group) were included in the study. Patients were recruited in depressive phase (moderate to severe depression). Patients having age outside 18-45 years, psychotic symptoms, mental retardation, and current comorbid medical or axis-1 psychiatric disorder were excluded. Psychosocial functioning was assessed using Range of Impaired Functioning Tool (LIFE-RIFT). Results. Domains of work, interpersonal relationship, life satisfaction, and recreation were all affected in both groups, but the groups showed significant difference in global psychosocial functioning score only (P=0.031) with BAD group showing more severe impairment. Conclusion. Bipolar depression causes higher global psychosocial impairment than unipolar depression. © 2014 Shubham Mehta et al.

Increasing female literacy and employment have resulted in a clear rise in the age at which women conceive. As fertility starts to decline with advancing age more and more number of women are facing the problem of infertility and are seeking medical attention to over come this problem. This resulted in more number of women seeking medical help to over come the problem of Infertility. This age related decline in ovarian reserve is not uniform in all women of reproductive age. A number of ovarian reserve tests were developed to overcome this problem. But to date there is no ideal marker for predicting ovarian reserve and pregnancy outcome in assisted reproductive technology program (ART). Recent studies indicate that anti mullein hormone is a promising marker for predicting ovarian reserve and pregnancy out come. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of age on Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) in ART program outcomes. Ninety-three subjects in the age group of 25 to 42 years were recruited to the study. All these subjects underwent controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) and later intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Subjects were divided into four groups. AMH levels in positive and negative pregnancy subjects in the above and below 35years age groups were compared. AMH levels were correlated with other ovarian reserve parameters and clinical pregnancy out come in both the age groups. Statistically significant differences were found in AMH levels between positive and negative pregnancy subjects in the age group of 35 and above, but not in the age group below 35 years. There were positive correlations between AMH and other ovarian reserve markers and clinical pregnancy outcome in this age group. AMH and the number of retrieved oocytes (r=0.784, P<0.01), Antral Follicle count (AFC) (r=0.749, P<0.01) and Mature Oocytes (MII) (r=0.407, P<0.01) followed by Grade-I Embryos (r=0.433, P<0.01). The current study revealed that AMH levels are better correlated with ovarian reserve and clinical pregnancy out come in subjects aged 35 years and above.

The aim of the present article was to discuss an unusual case report of the odontogenic cutaneous sinus with emphasis on diagnosis and treatment. The causative factor in this case was diagnosed intraoperatively due to infected follicular space in absence of any sign and symptoms. Timely diagnosis of the case could have prevented significant morbidity due to mistreatment medically and surgically with eventual recurrence. Copyright © 2014 by Mutaz B. Habal, MD.

ABSTRACT: Oral focal mucinosis is considered as oral counterpart of cutaneous focal mucinosis. The preoperative diagnosis of mucinosis is almost impossible because of its rarity and clinical similarity to other lesions of various etiologies. The histological diagnosis of oral mucinosis is important to better understand the etiopathogenesis, treatment modalities, and any recurrence of the lesion besides differentiating from the other soft tissue lesions.The purpose of this paper is to report the first case of bimaxillary involvement with dome-shaped elevated, rounded, asymptomatic, normally colored swelling in left posterior palatal mucosa and left mandibular posterior region in a 25-year old woman who was diagnosed as oral focal mucinosis histopathologically. © 2016 by Mutaz B.

Artificial drainage devices (ADD) create an alternative pathway for aqueous drainage from the anterior chamber of an eye through a tube to the subconjunctival bleb connected to an equatorial plate under the conjunctiva. The ADDs, both valved and non-valved, are available for end stage or refractory glaucoma. Currently, some of these devices, particularly the Express shunt, are recommended for the primary treatment of glaucoma. In this article, we highlight various ADDs, their indications and contraindications, surgical techniques and associated complications. © NEPjOPH.

Introduction: Ever increasing institutional deliveries in India has shifted the responsibility of timely initiation and continuation of breastfeeding from peripheral health workers and families to the nursing care providers of health facilities where the births take place. While institutional deliveries have increased to 72.6%, only 44.6% of the newborns enjoy early breastfeeding in India. Aim: To study the barriers to early initiation of breastfeeding in institutional delivery. Materials and Methods: A total 34 nursing care providers were selected randomly and five Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) were carried. Out this Qualitative Study was conducted through FGDs among the nursing care providers of a tertiary care institute in the Indian State of Haryana, India. Statistical Analysis: The analyses continued throughout the group discussions as the newly emerged themes were tested in the subsequent discussion. FGDs transcripts were analysed to enhance the robustness of the emerged domain. Results: Major barriers to initiation of breast feeding identified included: lack of awareness regarding proper technique of breastfeeding and benefits of colostrum; breast abnormality like inverted/retracted nipples; obstetric/neonatal complications requiring specialised care; and cultural practices like giving pre-lacteals and gender discrimination. It was further reported that the manpower has not been rationalised with ever increasing number of institutional deliveries. The respondents though willing to promote early initiation and continuation of breastfeeding felt excessive workload as one of the major barriers due to multitasking nature of their job. Conclusion: The new challenges to the early initiation and continuation of breastfeeding are emerging due to change in the place of delivery which needs to be addressed at the policy level. © 2016, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

Nasal polyps are benign prolapsed mucosal lesions which commonly arise from the paranasal sinuses and lateral walls of the nose especially the contact areas of osteomeatal complex. Though nasal polyps arising from the nasal septum have been reported, those arising from its anterior part are extremely rare and present a diagnostic dilemma. Aetiology is multifactorial and is mainly a result of the inflammatory response of the lining mucosa.The case of a 28-year-old male, with a history of progressively increasing nasal complaints since 4 months and with a nasal mass arising from the anterior nasal septum on examination, is reported. Diagnosis of an inflammatory nasal polyp was made on histopathological examination after surgical excision of the mass.The diagnosis of an inflammatory nasal polyp was not only unusual in terms of its location but also in its appearance on anterior rhinoscopy and tomographic scanning images. The definitive diagnosis in such cases can only be achieved through surgical resection and detailed histopathological examination.
