Deflation of the 'obstinate' Foley's urinary catheter balloon : a new technique.
RR Ramakantan, VV Someshwar
January-March 1989, 35(1):1-2
We have successfully deflated "obstinate" Foley's urinary catheter balloons in 15 cases in the last six months with the help of a simple bedside procedure using an angiographic guide-wire.

Ossifying lipoma of the thigh (a case report).
HG Pandit, PB Bhosale, SS Khubchandani
January-March 1989, 35(1):54-6
The term ossifying lipoma is used to describe a rare case of lipoma when its mature adipose tissue shows foci of chondrification and ossification. We are presenting here, a case report of a large sized ossifying lipoma in the anteromedial compartment of the left thigh of a 55 year old farmer.

Role of pulsed electromagnetic fields in recalcitrant non-unions.
DF Delima, DD Tanna
January-March 1989, 35(1):43-8
Twenty-nine patients of recalcitrant nonunion of long bones were treated by pulsed electromagnetic fields in an attempt to bring about osteogenesis. The pulse used was rectangular, equal mark space wave in the astable, continuous mode operating at a frequency of 40 Hertz. The success rate was 82.5%. The result was not dependent on the age, sex, time of nonunion or the presence of infection. However, the results were uniformly poor when infection and fracture instability were coexistent in the same patient.

Nosocomial infections due to Acinetobacter calcoaceticus.
FF Zaer, LL Deodhar
January-March 1989, 35(1):14-6
Fifty four isolates of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus were studied in a period of 6 months. Maximum isolates were from burns cases and environmental sampling from burns ward also grew the same organism, indicating their role as nosocomial pathogen. Acinetobacter may initially be mistaken for Neisseria species. As the organisms show multidrug resistance to commonly used antibiotics their correct identification is important.

A random plasma glucose method for screening for gestational diabetes.
JR Maheshwari, MV Mataliya
January-March 1989, 35(1):36-9
Low renal threshold for glucose during pregnancy renders glycosuria less specific for the diagnosis of gestational diabetes. Screening for gestational diabetes was done by utilising random plasma glucose (RPG). RPG was done at the first antenatal visit. In 12,623 patients who registered for antenatal care at the N.W.M. Hospital, 1371 patients had a RPG more than 100 mg%. An oral glucose tolerance test was advised in these patients. The pick-up rate of gestational diabetes correlated with RPG level. Thirty-six cases of gestational diabetes were picked up. The pick up rate is significantly higher as compared to that which would have been detected utilising conventional screening criteria.

Fatal outcome of group-G streptococcal meningitis (a case report).
PK Mohan, JJ Shanmugam, AA Nair, JJ Tharakan
January-March 1989, 35(1):49-50
An adult woman developed meningitis caused by Group-G streptococci. The organism was successfully isolated both from blood and cerebrospinal fluid of the patient. The woman succumbed to infection despite an appropriate antibiotic therapy.

Chronic bronchitis. IV--Antibody titres to bacterial antigens during acute exacerbations.
SG Dalvi, AV Pathare, GG Bhave, NM Wagle
January-March 1989, 35(1):30-5
In 49 patients of chronic bronchitis with acute exacerbation, serum antibody titres were estimated against the respective pathogen isolated and cultured from sputum of individual patients. Antibody titres to Klebsiella and Staphylococcus coagulase positive organisms were found in 28 and 25 patients respectively. Paired serum samples from 21 patients showed rising antibody titres in 17 of them, whereas the antibody titres fell in the remaining 4 patients. Notably, only 2 patients demonstrated a four fold rise or fall in the antibody titres. The significance of these findings is discussed.

Mycoplasma infection in genital tract with special reference to immunofluorescence.
RR Bhatt, AA Gogate, LL Deodhar
January-March 1989, 35(1):40-2
The aim of the study was to find out the incidence of mycoplasma in female genital tract infections. Out of 225 patients mycoplasma was isolated in 52.88%. The isolated strains were confirmed by fluorescent antibody technique (FAT).

Immunoprofile of pulmonary tuberculosis-comparison with normal healthy controls.
GG Bhave, AV Pathare, CC Dagha, LL Chabria, SG Dalvi
January-March 1989, 35(1):24-9
The immunoprofile of 60 adult patients of pulmonary tuberculosis was studied and compared with 22 normal controls. The immunological parameters studied were serum protein electrophoresis, serum immunoglobulins (IgG, IgA and IgM), delayed hypersensitivity by Mantoux test, and T-cell % estimation. The mean total serum proteins and serum albumin were significantly lower, whereas mean beta and gamma globulins were elevated. Mean serum IgG and serum IgA showed a significant rise, whereas the T-cell % was significantly reduced when compared to controls. The significance of these findings is discussed.

Prevalence of antibodies to aspergilli in bronchial asthmatics.
AA Kumar, RC Sahu, KK Subbannayyar, Jyothirlata, PV Rau, PG Shivananda
January-March 1989, 35(1):20-3
Sputum and bleed samples were analysed from 330 cases of bronchial asthmatics and 50 normal persons without features of bronchial asthma. The prevalence of aspergilli and antibodies to different Aspergillus species were detected using cultural methods and serological technique like agar gel double diffusion (DD), counter-immuno-electrophoresis (CIEP) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Out of total 6.06% yielded Aspergillus species in sputum specimens repeatedly. Precipitins against Aspergillus species were detected in 7.88% of cases by DD and CIEP. ELISA test showed 20% of cases to be having antibodies to A. fumigatus. Allergic broncho-pulmonary aspergillosis can be detected in the early course of the disease in bronchial asthmatics using highly sensitive technique like ELISA.

Centbutindole vs trifluoperazine : a double-blind controlled clinical study in acute schizophrenia.
DR Doongaji, RS Satoskar, AS Sheth, JS Apte, AB Desai, BR Shah
January-March 1989, 35(1):3-8
Twenty-nine acute schizophrenic patients were treated under double-blind conditions for six weeks with either centbutindole in a dose range of 3 mg/day to 4.5 mg/day or trifluoperazine in the dose range of 15 mg/day to 22.5 mg/day. Both drugs produced a significant improvement in initial psychopathology. No significant differences were demonstrated between the two treatment conditions.

Post-hysterectomy broad ligament haematoma : a complication of vaginal packing? (A case report).
SV Parulekar
January-March 1989, 35(1):51-3
With meticulous surgical technique, bleeding following vaginal hysterectomy and colporrhaphy is an unusual complication. With exteriorization of the stumps, any such haemorrhage is revealed in the form of vaginal bleeding. Two unusual cases of perivesical and broad ligament hematoma are presented and the possible role of vaginal packing in the development of such bleeding is discussed.

Comparative study of oral and intramuscular atropine sulphate as a premedicant in paediatric age group.
LS Chaudhari, SS Naik, SK Kamath, MM Bhatt
January-March 1989, 35(1):9-13
The use of atropine sulphate in the paediatric age group as a premedicant orally in a dosage of 0.02 mg/kg body weight 70 minutes prior to surgery was found to be as effective as atropine sulphate given intramuscularly 35 minutes prior to surgery in a dosage of 0.01 mg/kg body weight. This avoids the unpleasant memory of needle prick; The duration of effect as studied in the normal healthy children not subjected to surgery was found to be 2 1/2-3 hours.

Serum immunoglobulins in viral hepatitis.
BB Sanjanwala, DU Antani, SA Kamat
January-March 1989, 35(1):17-9
The serum levels of IgA, IgG and IgM were determined by single radial immuno-diffusion technique in 104 male patients of acute viral hepatitis. HBsAg was detected by counterimmuno-electrophoresis (CIEP) and 51% were HBsAg + ve. IgA, IgG and IgM levels were found to be higher than normal levels. Mean IgA and IgG levels were same in HBsAg + ve and HBsAg--ve patients. Mean IgM levels were however, higher in HBsAg--ve patients.
