Title : Comparison of Iadpsg And Dipsi Criteria for Diagnosis of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
Country : India
Authors : Dr.N.Geetha MD (OG) || Dr.K.Gowri Sangeetha MD (OG)

Abstract: Aim: DIPSI (Diabetes in Pregnancy Study Group India ) guidelines recommends the non-fasting 75gms glucose tolerance test as a single step screening and diagnostic test for GDM. International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Group (IADPSG) guidelines states that when a pregnant women walks into the antenatal clinic in fasting state, fasting blood sugar has to be taken. Then 75gms oral glucose to be given and 1hr &2hr venous plasma glucose has to be taken. Fasting plasma glucose > 92mgs/dl, 1hr plasma glucose > 180mgs/dl or 2hr plasma glucose > 153mgs/dl diagnoses GDM. Our objective was to study the implications of implementing the IADPSG guidelines and DIPSI guidelines for screening and diagnosis of GDM in Indian population................

Title : A Study of Correlation between Severity of Diastolic Dysfunction and Coronary Angiographic Severity in STEMI Patients
Country : India
Authors : Dr. B. Adilakshmi M.D., D.M || Dr. P. Sudarshan M. D., D.M

Abstract: The interest in diastolic dysfunction, which is present in various heart diseases, has been growing for many years. Over the past 2 decades, the concept of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction has emerged (1).Ischemic heart disease is one of the main causes of diastolic heart failure. The presence of diastolic dysfunction predicts a poor prognosis in patients with coronary artery disease (2). Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction has become a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge, since its morbidity and mortality are similar to those of heart failure with deteriorated left ventricular ejection fraction (3). Echocardiography is the method of choice for diastolic function testing in clinical practice.

Title : Role of Platelet Count in Predicting Outcome in Burn Patient –A Prospective Study
Country : India
Authors : Dr.T.G.Vasanthraja || Asst. Prof. Dr.R.Narayana Moorthy

Abstract: Skin an anatomical barrier from pathogens and damage between the internal and external environment in bodily defense; Langerhans cells in the skin are part of the adaptive immune system. Loss of skin in burn patients lets them open to a wide variety of infectious organisms. This also depends on the extent of the body surface area, degree of the burn, immune capacity of the patient, etc.. In this study we attempt to find the correlation between the platelet count and its usefulness in predicting outcome in burn patients. Septicemia is one of the leading causes of death in burn patients. Through this study we aim for commencement of timely vigorous treatment against it. Septicemia is the most important cause of mortality in burn.

Title : Primary Ovarian Pregnancy: A Rare Entity.
Country : India
Authors : Dr. Bangal V.B || Dr. Gitay Madhumita || Dr. S. Shashant

Abstract: Ectopic pregnancy is one of the most common gynaecological emergencies. The myriad of locations have a hierarchy of prevalence as well as associated mortality and morbidity. Ovarian pregnancy is a rare entity which accounts for upto 3 % of all ectopic pregnancies that is difficult to diagnose clinically.₁ It is the most common type of non-tubal ectopic pregnancy.₂ Ovarian pregnancy is a diagnosis of exclusion. ART procedures have resulted in a rise of pregnancy outside the uterine cavity, yet ovarian pregnancy is still rare. We present a case of ruptured ovarian ectopic pregnancy which required an emergency laparotomy.

Title : Successful in vitro Fertilization Using Autologous Gametes after
Eight Failed Trials
Country : India
Authors : Ahmed M. Isa

Abstract: Background: Many infertile couples worldwide resort to donated gametes to overcome their infertility problems, however many others cannot for cultural or religious reasons. They have no other options but probably to keep trying In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment using their own gametes. We wanted to see if we would be able at some point to help such cases fulfil their dreams. Case Report: Four infertility cases with a history of many unsuccessful IVF trials; eight, seven, six, and four, suggestively because of very poor fertilization and/or poor embryo development due to sever male factor that ranged from azoospermia to severe oligo-terato-asthenozoospermia. Yet, in their subsequent trials we managed to help them conceive with live births at the end............

Title : Role of trauma from occlusion in periodontal disease- A controversy
Country : India
Authors : Dr. Rizwan M. Sanadi || Dr. Laksha R. Chelani || Dr. Susmita R. Bhakkand ||
Dr. Jimit K. Sheth

Abstract: For more than a century, dental care professionals have debated whether or not trauma from occlusion is associated with periodontal disease. Both occlusal trauma and periodontitis result in injury to the attachment apparatus because the periodontium is unable to cope with the pathological insult which it experiences. Occlusal traumatism is nowadays generally accepted as a distinct pathologic entity unassociated with periodontitis, related tissue changes are regarded as microscopic, non-inflammatory and limited to
attachment apparatus.........

Title : Fusion of lower central and lateral incisor in conjugation of a talon's cusp: A case report.
Country : India
Authors : Dr. Mylavarapu Krishna Sagar || Dr.Alok Avinash || Dr.Lavinder Kaur Gill ||
Dr.Brij Kumar

Abstract: Talon's cusp is a properly delineated additional cusp which is said to arise due to evagination on the tooth surface even before the calcification has taken place. Hence it is also known as dens evaginatus. Fusion is a condition wherein the crowns of two separate teeth are seen to have joined togetherduring the time of crown development. The present article describes a case where in both the presence of talon's cusp as well as fusion is seen.
