The combination of ultrasound neck and sestamibi scan has proved to be highly sensitive and specific in localizing the adenomatous gland.21 Various studies from different centers report successful outcome of directed parathyroid exploration with accurate localization of the adenoma pre operatively using this combination.4,9,12,13,22 Although intra operative PTH assay or gamma probe is often used for accurate localization of the adenomatous gland,3,4,12 a recent study has shown that patients with primary hyperparathyroidism having an unequivocally positive preoperative sestamibi scan can safely undergo a focused unilateral neck exploration without either intraoperative PTH monitoring or the use of a gamma probe.23
In the study group where Granisetron is used, no one complained of nausea and vomiting during 0-2hrs post operatively, 8% complained of nausea and 4% complained of vomiting during 2-6 hrs.
In this study among 6-7 years age group, eyes in subgroup I (With pre op Vn PL +ve-0.08 LogMar) had mean pre op VA of 0.01 LogMar improved to 0.16 LogMar post operatively. Eyes in subgroup II (with pre op Vn 0.1-0.16 LogMar) had mean pre op VA of 0.12 LogMar improved to 0.52 LogMar post operatively.
Post- operatively 45 knees had extension lag of <10 degrees and 2 knees with extension lag of 15 degree, with a significant p value of 0.003.

THURSDAY, March 15, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Almost all emergency general surgery (EGS) patients treated operatively and nonoperatively have increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and should receive prophylactic treatment, according to a review published online March 14 in JAMA Surgery.
The longer the interval before surgery, the better the survival is,16,17 delayed repair lends time for fibrosis and myocardial scar tissue formation around the VSD and thus allows for a better and long lasting repair with less chances of residual VSD's post operatively, due to this reason many centres use mechanical circulatory support in the form of IABP, Impella, Tandem Heart and ECMO pre-operatively to hemodynamically stabilize the patients and delay the surgery till the second week.
The pre operative mean CA-125 level was 60.5+-46.4 IU/ml while post operatively after 6 weeks it was 27.5+-17.5 IU/ml and this difference between pre operative and post operative CA-125 levels was statistically significant(p-value=<0.001).
We aimed to report the incidence and types of distal ulnar head and neck fractures associated with distal radius fractures and compare outcomes in operatively versus non-operatively treated patients.
In this study, the efficacy of the two techniques of end-to-end jejuno- jejunal anastomosis were assessed on basis of changes in intra-luminal diameter, leakage or peritonitis, post- operatively, and time for suturing during the surgeries, respectively.
It was observed that the patients undergoing two visit endodontic treatment experienced more pain as compared to the ones receiving single visit treatment and it was significant at 12 and 24 hours post operatively. It is concluded that single visit endodontic treatment evokes less pain as compared to 2 visit treatment.
