Diagnostic and therapeutic value of early synovectomy of the knee joint -(An analysis of 60 cases)
DN Hormusjee, MN Shahane
July-September 1979, 25(3):166-170
A study of sixty well selected cases of synovitis of the knee joint, treated by timely adequate synovectomy, followed up over a period of four years is presented. We have stressed the importance of therapeutic and diagnostic value of synovectomy. The results are found encouraging and the procedure useful in preventing damage to the articular structures of the knee joint. The best results are obtained in non-specific, traumatic and very early cases of rheuma­toid arthritis while infective arthritis benefits to fair extent.

In vitro susceptibility of urinary pathogens to trimethoprim, nitrofurantoin and trimethoprim-nitrofurantoin combination
Pramila Patil, Vidya Sharma, BN Joshi
July-September 1979, 25(3):162-165
A combination of trimethoprim and nitrofurantoin was tried against 100 bacterial strains isolated from cases of urinary tract in­fection. The combinations in varying ratios have shown a good syn­ergistic effect against the common urinary pathogens. However, the results will have to be corroborated by conducting trials in a large number of patients.

A comparative study of serum histaminase and serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase in acute myocardial infarction
SK Gupta, TN Mehrotra, VS Singh, GP Elhence, HS Mittal, A Mitra
July-September 1979, 25(3):140-146
Serum histaminase and SGOT were estimated in 35 cases of acute myocardial infarction and 34 cases of ischaemic heart disease (Other than acute myocardial infarction) and 30, age and sex match­ed, healthy subjects which served as controls, to evaluate the com­parison of time relation activity, diagnostic and prognostic value of histaminase and SGOT. The enzymes were estimated within 6 hours, then repeated -within 24 hours, 2nd day, 3rd day, 5th day, 10th day and 15th day, ascertained from the time o f pain in the chest. Raised histaminase levels were found in 97.14%; cases, while SGOT levels were found elevated in only 91.4% cases of acute myo­cardial infarction of which 30 were electrocardiographically proved and 5 had equivocal electrocardiographic evidence of acute infarc­tion like LBBB, complete heart block, ventricular tachycardia and old myocardial infarction. Furthermore elevation of histaminase was 6.2 times whereas of SGOT only 5.2 times above the mean normal value. Serum histaminase was found elevated in all the 6 cases who presented within 6 hours of infarction, while SGOT did not rise in any of these cases. Both histaminase and SGOT reached the peak levels on the 2nd day and persisted for whole of the first week. Higher levels of these enzymes were found associated with worse prognosis. Above observations show that the serum histaminase rises earlier than SGOT and can prove the diagnosis of myocardial infarction even when SGOT and ECG fail to reveal the diagnosis. It is a more sensitive index and has higher peak rise of levels than SGOT. How­ever its pattern of rise, fall and prognostic values are similar to that of SGOT.

Herpes generalisata associated with diabetes mellitus and pulmonary tuberculosis (A case report)
RB Panwar, DK Kochar, BS Gupta, LK Bhatnagar, HC Saxena
July-September 1979, 25(3):171-173
An unusual case of Herpes Generalisata with diabetes mellitus and pulmonary tuberculosis is reported. This condition has beer, regularly reported in various immunologically suppressed states like Hodgkin's disease, other lymphomas and leukaemias, but its occur­rence with diabetes mellitus has been described for the first time in our case.

Synovial chondromatosis
Shaila A Nimbkar, Sudha Y Sane, Bhavana Patel, RH Pathak, AV Bavdekar
July-September 1979, 25(3):189-191
Two cases of synovial ehondromatosis are presented of which one falls in a rare group o f extra-articular ehondromatosis develop­ing in a bursa. Awareness of this rare lesion is important to prevent radical treatment owing to overdiagnosis. The histologic changes may mimic chondrosarcoma causing diagnostic problem.

Chest injuries in civilian practice (A study of 166 cases)
NV Mandke, C Padmanabhan, AM Shah, SV Nadkarni
July-September 1979, 25(3):134-139
Chest injuries constitute a large number of patients admitted in our Intensive Trauma Care Unit. The maximum incidence is in the age group of 20-40 years. Contusions, fracture ribs, pneumo­haemothorax constitute major thoracic injuries. Visceral injuries were always kept in mind while treating these patients with critical condition. Most of the patients could be treated with only active conservativemanagement with proper use of respirators in selected patients. Surgical intervention was required in the patients mostly with visceral injuries. The mortality rate in pure chest injuries is very low. The as­sociated head injuries and abdominal injuries increased the overall mortality rate.

An experimental investigation to correlate changes in plasma fibrinolytic activity with isoprenaline induced myocardial damage
KK Saxena, B Gupta, VK Kulshrestha, DN Prasad
July-September 1979, 25(3):147-153
Administration of different doses of isoprenaline in albino rats produced varying grades of myocardial necrosis with concomitant changes in euglobulin clot lysis time which is a measure of plasma fibrinolytic activity (PFA). A positive and strong correlation was observed between changes in PFA and severity of myocardial necrosis. Experiments in young rats and propranolol pre-treated animals rule out the possibility of isoprenaline being responsible in bringing about changes in PFA. The measurement of PFA appears to be of prognostic significance in myocardial infarction as discussed.

Thrombocyte function in relation to the long term application of medroxyprogesterone acetate as a female contraceptive agent
L Mettler, D Shirwani, FJ Brunnberg
July-September 1979, 25(3):154-157
In two hundred and twenty eight parous women between thirty and forty years o f age, Medroxyprogesterone acetate 150 mg depot injection every three months proved to be a one hundred per cent contraceptive agent. Minimal side effects were noted with some spotting and amenorrhoea. No significant increase in blood coagula­tion and tendency to thrombosis was noted as tested by the platelet aggregation test during medication.
