Congenital isolated alar defects are exceptionally rare with 6 cases reported out of all cranio-facial clefts. This entity provokes the ingenuity of the surgeon to manifest a symmetry in form, shape and contour with aesthetically acceptable scarring of the most dominant structure defining the mid face. We present a rotation advancement flap, from the armamentarium of the surgeon, proficient in addressing all the concerns of the patient and treating surgeon for congenital alar cleft. © 2012 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

Pulmonary function parameters are the most important and widely used exploratory tool in respiratory disorders. Most of the studies on these parameters describe lung capacities and flow rates in terms of absolute values. There are various equations to derive the predicted values of these parameters. Most of these equations are framed for Caucasian, American or Africans, but are frequently used in Indian subjects. There are very few equations for Indian subjects, which are also region specific. Hence, the present study was undertaken to compare the various regression equations for calculating predicted parameters in North Indian subjects. We used eight regression equations which are frequently used for calculating predicted values. The data of 75 Indian healthy subjects was used in these equations for comparison. The regression equations provided predicted value of pulmonary function parameters which varied markedly (0.24-123%) based on type of regression formula used. The closet seems to be Chatterjee and Vijayan equation. The anthropometric variable used in these equations can have a lot of bearing on the predicted values. However, based on literature and our experience of using eight regression equations, we found that none of these is perfectly suited for North Indian subjects. © 2014 JK Science. All rights reserved.

For centuries, autopsy has been instrumental in establishing the cause of death both in clinical and Forensic cases. Clinical autopsy has significant role in clinical quality control, clinical auditing and medical education. Medical student's knowledge and attitude toward Forensic autopsies influence the quality of autopsy reports being prepared by them in their professional carriers. A survey was conducted on 100 medical students and 40 interns to assess their knowledge and attitude toward Forensic autopsy. Most of the medical students (76% Part I and 90% part II) and interns (60%) found that demonstrations of the autopsies during their 2nd Prof Practical classes was a learning experience and wished, they could see more autopsies. However in the present study, majority of the medical students (88% Final Yr. Part I and 84% Final Yr. Part II) and interns (87%) felt themselves incapable of performing autopsies independently on becoming physicians. Medical teachers should encourage the medical students to become more interested in observing Forensic autopsies. It is suggested that problem based learning during practical training of autopsy must be incorporated as a part of the medical curriculum. Source
