ORIGINAL ARTICLE
Prostaglandin E2 gel In ripening of cervix in induction of labour.
HS Warke, RM Saraogi, SM Sanjwalla
October-December 1999, 45(4):105-9
PMID:0010734347
A study was done in 75 patients who underwent induction of labour with Prostaglandin E2 gel. All these patients had an unripe cervix. The commonest indications were post-datism, intrauterine growth retardation and pregnancy-induced hypertension. All patients were primigravidas with singleton pregnancy and beyond 35 weeks of pregnancy. The mean Bishop score at the time of instillation was less than three. The improvement of another 2-3 points within six hours and by 7-8 points within 12 hours was found after instillation of the gel. 92% of the patients went into spontaneous labour and 8% required reinstillation. The incidence of failed induction was 1.33%. The mean duration of latent phase was 10.34 hours. Induction delivery time was 16.43 hours. 68.1% patients required augmentation of labour and 31.9% did not require augmentation of labour with oxytocin drip. The incidence of vaginal delivery was 81.33% and that of caesarean section was 17.33%. The commonest indication of caesarean section was foetal distress.

Mohr syndrome: a rare case and distinction from orofacial digital syndrome 1.
HS Hosalkar, H Shah, P Gujar, A Kulkarni, MG Yagnik
October-December 1999, 45(4):123-4
PMID:0010734352
In view of the different modes of inheritance and the different prognoses of the two oro-facio-digital syndromes, type 1 and type 2, it is important to establish a correct diagnosis in these patients. A case of type II oro-facio-digital syndrome is being reported and the distinguishing clinicoradiological features with type I are compared.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE
Anthropometry, lipid profile and dietary pattern of patients with chronic ischaemic heart disease.
BU Vajifdar, VS Goyal, YY Lokhandwala, SR Mhamunkar, SP Mahadik, AK Gawad, SA Halankar, HL Kulkarni
October-December 1999, 45(4):110-3
PMID:0010734348
The anthropometry, lipid profile and dietary characteristics of 114 patients with chronic ischaemic heart disease (IHD) were evaluated. There were 91 (80%) men and the mean age was 56 +/- 9 years. The body mass index was near normal (24.4 +/- 3.4), but the waist: hip ratio was high (0.94 +/- 0.06) suggesting central obesity. This was well in accordance of the step II recommendations of the NCEP guidelines as regards their caloric intake and its break-up in terms of carbohydrate, protein and fat (including saturated, mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fatty acids) content. Their daily cholesterol intake (31 +/- 32 mg/day, range 4-180) was very low. The total cholesterol (212 +/- 37 mg%) was marginally elevated, HDL cholesterol (33 +/- 7.5 mg%) was low, LDL cholesterol (148 +/- 39 mg%) was high and the total: HDL ratio (6.8 +/- 2.0) was significantly abnormal. The serum triglyceride level (154 +/- 68 mg%) was on the higher side of normal. These observations give further credence to the recently evolving view that there are different and hitherto unrecognised risk factors of IHD in Indians, who seem to have the highest incidence of IHD amongst all ethnic groups of the world despite consuming a diet low in fat and cholesterol content.
