  • Lipid profile in patients with coronary heart disease

    • Authors: Milind P. Ullewar, Suchita V. Ingale, Vikas C. Ingale, Jayshree J. Upadhye
      Pages: 259 - 264
      Abstract: Background: The lipid profile and their ratio are important in management and follow up of patients with coronary heart disease. We studied the lipid profile and their ratios with proven coronary artery disease.Methods: It was retrospective study to determine the lipid profile and their ratios in patients with proven coronary artery disease at Shakuntala Pathology Lab., Nagpur. 200 patients were studied.  Results: Out of 200 patients studied, 126 (63%) were males while 74 (37%) were females. out of 126 males,12 (9.52%) had raised cholesterol values of >200 mg/dL. 20 (15.87%) had raised triglyceride values of >200 mg/dL. 30 (23.80%) had lower HDL values of <35 mg/dL. 5 (3.96%) had raised LDL values of >150 mg/dL. 90 (71.42%) had raised values of >3.5 for cholesterol to HDL ratio. Out of 74 female patients, 20 (27.02%) patients had raised cholesterol values. 12 (16.21%) patients had raised triglycerides values. 13 (17.56%) patients had lower HDL values. 6 (8.10%) patients had raised LDL values. 50 (67.56%) patients had raised values for cholesterol to HDL ratio.Conclusions: Our study shows more prevalence of coronary heart disease in males than females. Hypercholesteremia and hypertriglyceridemia was more prevalent in females. HDL values were lowered in more number of males than females. LDL values were raised in more number of females than males. Total cholesterol to HDL ratio was raised in more number of males than females.

  • Dexamethasone as an adjuvant to bupivacaine in brachial plexus block in
           upper limb surgery

    • Authors: Smita R. Engineer, Rahul Patel, Abhinav Bishnoi, Chetna M. Umrigar
      Pages: 265 - 270
      Abstract: Background: Supraclavicular brachial plexus block is widely used for surgery below shoulder joint. Adding adjuvant to local anesthetic drugs enhance the duration of block as well as postoperative analgesia. Dexamethasone very potent glucocorticoid when added to local significantly prolongs the duration of analgesia.Methods: This randomized, single blind, controlled study include 100 patients of either sex, aged 18–60 years, ASA status I–III, undergoing upper limb surgery were randomly allocated to receive either 0.375% 30 cc bupivacaine with 2 ml normal saline (group C, n=50) or 0.375% bupivacaine with 2 ml (8 mg) dexamethasone (group D, n=50). The observed parameters include onset and duration of motor and sensory block, duration of effective analgesia any side effects and hemodynamic (pulse rate, NIBP, SpO2).  Results: Mean onset time of sensory and motor block in group C was significantly longer as compared to group D. (p<0.0001) The duration of sensory and motor blockade was significantly prolonged in group D compared to group C. (p<0.0001) The duration of effective analgesia was also significantly prolonged in group D (931.2±69.88 mins) compared to group C (454.8±34.47 mins) (p<0.0001).Conclusions: Addition of dexamethasone to 0.375% bupivacaine in brachial plexus block speeds the onset and prolongs the duration of sensory and motor blockade. It also prolongs the duration of effective analgesia.

  • Acupuncture treatment for diaphragm muscle damage after peptic ulcer

    • Authors: Jihe Zhu, Blagica Arsovska, Kristina Kozovska
      Pages: 271 - 273
      Abstract: The diaphragm is a muscle located in the base of the thorax, serving two main functions – inspiration and separating the abdominal and thoracic cavity. During some chest and abdomen surgeries the muscle can be accidentally damaged and cause pain and other severe symptoms. The treated patient is a 46 year old male with constant pain variable in intensity, difficulty in breathing and nausea for 14 years. The pain occurred after peptic ulcer surgery, located in the upper abdomen below the ribs in the epigastric region. The patient was given wrong diagnosis for chronic pancreatitis and was taking Tramadol, Ketonal and Zaracet for 14 years. The treatments started on 5th of May 2017 in our clinic for Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Treatments were done indoor, on a room temperature, with duration of 35-40 minutes. Treatments were done once weekly with normal (dry) acupuncture with fine sterile disposable needles. The patient immediately felt better after only one treatment. After three treatments the patient was totally pain-free and all the accompanying symptoms were gone. Acupuncture points that were used in the treatment are: Du8, Du6, Du7, Du20, Li6, Ki16, Rm4, Rm11, St36, Sp6 and Lv3. With correct diagnosis and proper treatment we succeeded to help our patient to relieve him from the long-lasting pain for a very short time.

  • A rare case of male Turner syndrome for penetrating keratoplasty

    • Authors: Shobha Ravishankar
      Pages: 274 - 276
      Abstract: Turner syndrome (TS) is a complex genetic disorder. These abnormalities especially those relating to the airway and cardiovascular system, pose a challenge to the anaesthesiologist. The main anatomo-physiological changes pertaining to the anaesthesiologist include a short neck, maxillary and mandibular hypoplasia which might be responsible for difficult airway. The shorter length of trachea as well as higher location of its bifurcation predispose to bronchial intubation and accidental endotracheal extubation when tracheal cannula is under traction. The presence of cardiopathies, endocrine and gastro intestinal disorders, liver and kidney changes as well as osteoarticular involvement besides ophthalmologic and hearing impairments are very frequent and should be detected during pre-anaesthetic evaluation. The incidence of TS is variously reported as 1:3000 to 1:10000 live (female) births. Very few cases of male turner have been reported in literature.

Here we report a case study of 54 years male, working in sewage treatment plant having being diagnosed of Irritant contact dermatitis on palmer surfaces of both hands.
