Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the world, and suicide amongst the military is not uncommon. In this paper, suicide by a military man using his service rifle is presented. The paper emphasizes the importance of regular check up for these people who are working under stressful circumstances for their mental health besides the routine physical check up. © 2015, World Informations Syndicate.

This study was conducted at the mortuary of the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences during the period of September 2007 to August 2009 on 126 victims of road traffic accidents, who had sustained head injuries. It was observed that majority of the cases were in the age group of 21 - 30 years (28.57%) with the male: female ratio of 2:1. Pedestrians (38.89%) were the commonest victims and trucks were the frequent offending vehicles. Fissured fracture was observed in 54.72% followed by comminuted fracture in 33.96%. Temporal bone was the most frequent bone (33.96%) to be fractured. 43.42% of the victims had intracranial haemorrhage, of which 47.19% had subdural with subarachnoid haemorrhage. 77.5% had laceration of the brain and 31.25% had contre coup lesions. 38.10% died on the spot while another 38.10% died within 6 hours. The study highlights the need for implementation of stricter traffic rules and provision of emergency trauma services at the site of accidents. Source

Sonologists uses various parameters for determining gestational age. Although not very popular, orbital dimensions are one such parameter which helps in determining age of fetus. Therefore, the aim of the paper was to construct a nomogram of the size of the fetal orbit as well as the interorbital and binocular distance followed by :evaluation of correlation between gestational age and biometrics of fetal orbit. Studied in 128 orbits from 64 fetuses belonging to Manipuri population, different dimensions of orbit were measured using vernier calipers. Measured dimensions include orbital height, orbital width, interorbital distance and binocular distance and subsequent determination of orbital index. The data was elaborated statistically by t-test. Correlation and regression analysis was performed. It was observed that with age, all the dimensions increases, however, difference in growth rate between dimensions were noted. Furthermore, it was observed that there was difference in the orbital values of previous studies as compared to the present study, which could be due to ethnicity of the study group. This easily assessable anatomical part can be used by Sonologists in lieu of biparietal diameter and also, in medicolegal cases of determination of unknown gestational age of fetus. © 2012 Anatomical Society of India.

Background: Lecture still remains the most common mode of instruction in higher education. Students learn from lectures by listening, observing, summarizing, and note taking. Lectures can be supplemented with audiovisual aids for better illustrations, clarity, and learning. Aims and Objective: To assess student’s perceptions of the impact of different teaching aids and to analyze the preferences for teaching aids of medical versus dental students. Materials and Methods: Medical and dental undergraduates were asked to fill in 10-item questionnaire about their perceptions on three lecture delivery methods used in our college. The results were analyzed separately for medical and dental students to see any difference in their perceptions. Result: Majority of the medical students (66.05%) preferred PowerPoint (PPT) presentation, whereas 22.21% preferred the use of blackboard (BB) and 11.1% preferred overhead projector transparency (OHPT) for teaching (P < 0.001). Of the dental students, 61.2% preferred PPT presentation, 26.5% preferred BB, and 12.2% preferred OHPT during lectures (P < 0.001). Conclusion: Majority of both the medical and the dental students clearly preferred the use of PPT presentation in lectures over the other two methods. Visual aids such as PPT will motivate the students to learn their subjects, thus making the learning process an enjoyable experience. © 2015 Florence L. Source

A case is reported here of a stillborn fetus of about 21 weeks of gestation that was collected from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Imphal, Manipur, India. The weight of the fetus was around 350 g. Crown rump (CR) length was not taken because of spine deformity and, therefore, the foot length, which measured 3.3 cm, was used to determine the age of the fetus. External examination of the fetus revealed an enormous defect in the anterior abdomen wall (omphalocele). The umbilical cord was attached on the right side of omphalocele. Incision of the membranous sac revealed liver, coils of intestine, and a muscular sac herniating through the defect in the abdominal wall. Further exploration of the abdomen showed continuity of the large intestine and ureters to the muscular sac. The sac is the cloaca. Exstrophy of the cloaca is a rare developmental anomaly involving the urinary bladder and the distal part of the digestive tract. This case report discusses the embryological background of the development of exstrophy of the cloaca and is reported because of the association of complete absence of external genitalia. © 2016 Journal of Medical Society.
