METHODS In a prospective clinical trial study of 80 patients, with displaced mid-shaft fractures of the clavicle were referred to Ortho OPD in a tertiary care hospital. These patients were deliberately placed into two treatment groups: non-surgical (with figure-eight bandage) and surgical (with DCR plate fixation). All patients of the surgical group underwent ORIF. Clinical examination, fracture radiography and shoulder scores were recorded for all patients at the end of 12 weeks. Shoulder function is measured by the constant shoulder

Twenty four cadavers used for dissection for the first year medical students of Amrita School of Medicine, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences were studied serially in the years 2011-14. The flexor compartment was dissected using standard procedure based on Cunninghams Dissection Manual Volume I . The presence, absence and morphological variations of palmaris longus, its nerve supply and its relation to flexor retinaculum and neighbouring structures were noted. Of the forty eight limbs studied, thirty nine showed the classical textbook description (Figure 1) and in four specimens there was complete agenesis. The other morphological types there numbers and percentage are presented in Table 1.

Statistical significance was assigned as P value less than 0.05. Results A total of 15 patients, following up in the pain clinic in the South Egypt Cancer Institute, underwent combined SHGP block and GI block. Demographic data, clinical data, and the mean duration of the procedure are presented in Table 1. The SHGP block through a posteromedian transdiscal approach and GI block through a trans-sacrococcygeal approach took a mean duration time (± SD) of 31.3 ± 6.7 minutes with a minimum and maximum duration of 20 and 45 minutes, respectively. A successful needle placement for SHGP
The trend of relationship between FMA total score with TUG score Discussion There were 38 subjects who fulfill the inclusion criteria, consisted of 25 (65,8%) male and 13 (34,2%) female, it was accordance with Chih-Ying Wu and friend on March, 2007 – August, 2008 from 1161 patients at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital Taiwan, it obtained the incidence of stroke in men (63,4%) were higher than women (36,6%) (Moon et al, 2013). The results of relationship between Upper Extremity (UE) motor score with a score of TUG reflecting no relationship between it. It was because the TUG had a mainly used to evaluated mobility function ability. The study by Michelle in 2006 on 512 patients determined that UE motor score had a highest level with Action Research Arm Test score (Woodbury, 2006). Lower extremity (LE) motor score has a relationship with TUG score.
One woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes in India. Following below the most recent statistics available for survival by the current staging system. Stage Relative 5-Year survival Rate 0 93% IA 93% IB 80% IIA 63% IIB 58% IIIA 35% IIIB 32% IVA 16% IVB 15% Why are some cancers diagnosed late? As we all know that late diagnosis ant late initiation of treatment lead to more chance of morbidity and mortality. In UK, around 25% of cancers are diagnosed through emergency admission to hospital and most of them have lower chances of survival compared to other patients.
This may be due to mechanical trauma (blunt or penetrating), thermal injuries,chemical agents or radiation.1 Ocular trauma is an important cause of visual impairment and a leading cause of preventablemonocular blindness.2 Worldwide there are approximately 1.6 million people blind from eyeinjuries, an additional 2.3 million people with bilateral low vision from this cause, and almost19 million with unilateral blindness or low vision.3The global pattern of eye injuries and theirconsequences suggest that 55 million eye injuries restricting activities more than one day,occur each year and 750,000 cases will require hospitalization each year.3,4Data from the National Centre for Health Statistics' Health Interview Survey, conducted in1977, estimated that nearly 2.4 million eye injuries occur in the United States yearly.5 Thisreport also estimated that nearly one million Americans have permanent significant visualimpairment due to injury, with more than 75% of these individuals being monocularly blind.Eye injury is a leading cause of monocular blindness in the United States, and is second onlyto cataract as the most common cause of visual impairment.2,5In developing countries, eye injuries are not only more common but also more severe in theireffect and this may be attributed to socioeconomic background, inadequate safety measures,lack of
