Abstract : Obesity has reached epidemic proportion in India with morbid obesity affecting 5% of country’s population. As the rate of Obesity climbs, obesity related diseases and conditions follow with similar rates. Adipose tissue is an active endocrine organ that releases several cytokines such as IL-1, IL-6 TNF-α and adipokines such as leptin, adiponectin, hepcidin, resistin. This study is to analyze if there is any association of Obesity with Hepcidin in men. This case-control study was conducted at a tertiary care centre in Tamil Nadu between Dec 2013 and Nov 2014, including 80 subjects of South Indian population, of male sex. The biochemical parameters which were measured included the levels of hepcidin, ferritin, iron and TIBC. The results obtained were statistically analyzed using SPSS software version 15.0. Mean and Standard deviation were found for all parameters. Independent sample t-test and ANOVA were performed to check for the statistical significance for differences in mean between the groups. The mean hepcidin values for the control group was 756 ± 411 and the study group was 1122 ± 930 and when compared it was found to be statistically significant with a p-value of 0.032. Hepcidin is predominantly produced by hepatocytes and also in adipose tissue, recognized as the key regulator of systemic iron homeostasis. The measurement of hepcidin in biological fluids is therefore a promising tool in the diagnosis and management of medical conditions in which iron metabolism is affected..

Abstract : Totally implantable access ports (TIAPs) are generally used in oncology patients. A total of 89 consecutive oncology patients, between 2016 to 2019 were enrolled to receive TIAP inserts via an internal jugular vein (IJV) or subclavian vein (SV). Data of early/late complications were prospectively collected. The exclusion criteria were having an active infection and coagulopathy (platelets count < 50 000/µl, INR > 2 or prothrombin time > 18s) at the time of CVAP insertion. For all the patients 8 French ports were used as CVAP and patients were randomly divided into 2 groups of CVAP venous puncture site: Subclavian or Internal jugular vein. Thirty-two patients (36%) were male and 57 (64%) were female. The median age of participants was 55. Chemotherapy ports were implanted through Subclavian and jugular vein in 47(52.8%) and 42 (47.2%) patients respectively. No differences were found in early and late complication rates. In conclusion, we observed that both implantation approaches were feasible and safe. If the circumstances do not permit a puncture of the jugular vein, or if the jugular vein should be preserved for central venous lines, a fluoroscopy-guided or also sonographically guided puncture of the subclavian vein can be a safe alternative..

Abstract : Ankle fracture is one of the most common injury encountered by orthopedic surgeon. It can be resulted by simple twisting injury of ankle and also in high energy trauma from motor-vehicles accident. Concomitant tibio-talar dislocation following ankle fracture have been reported as many as 21% to 36% of ankle fractures and warrant early intervention and usually is associated with deltoid ligaments injury. However, until now the management of ankle fracture dislocation associated with deltoid ligament injury is still in debate. We report a case of 23 years old gentleman who involved in a motor-vehicle accident and sustained right lateral malleolus fracture with ankle dislocation. He underwent a close manual reduction (CMR) but failed as the post CMR X-ray shown that the ankle remains subluxated. Subsequently proceeded with plating of right fibula and deltoid ligaments repair using anchor sutures. Patient outcomes were reassessed with American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle score (AOFAS) at three months and six months’ post-operative and the result were 81% and 95% respectively..

Abstract : Fructose accounts for 25% of sugar intake. The prevalence of obesity in the U.S. has also increased. High fructose diet leads to hepatic steatosis. Intestinal microbiota influences obesity. The aim of this review article is to elucidate the pathogenesis of obesity in fructose induced non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The study included 42 articles published in the last 20 years searched in Pubmed, EMBASE, Cochrane library, Pubmed Central, Uptodate and Medline. Review articles were 14, original research articles involving human beings and animals were 16 and 12 respectively. This article did not require ethics approval. Fructose poses high risk for hepatic steatosis. Endotoxemia increased intestinal permeability. Altered lipid and amino acid metabolism lead to liver injury aggravated by dietary low copper. Fructose induced dysbiosis leading to fatty liver. Probiotics and preobiotics have an impact on the gut microbiota; thus improving liver function and decreasing obesity..

Abstract : A surgeon is most likely to encounter major salivary gland diseases because of inflammation, stones, tumours or trauma in his practice with variability in clinical presentation. In this study includes the incidence, clinical presentation, surgical management, post-operative complications, correlation of USG and FNAC of salivary gland swellings with histopathology was done. To evaluate incidence according to age and gender distribution, accuracy of USG and FNAC in diagnosis and current surgical management of salivary gland swellings. This prospective observational case series of 25 patients studied over a period of 2 years presented with salivary gland swellings in our institution who are willing for Investigation and treatment. The case history, diagnosis with pre-operative USG, FNAC with post-operative histopathological correlation and surgical management and complications were assessed. Patients were aged between 4-65 years with presentational mean age of 37.2 years with male to female ratio of 3:2. Parotid gland is most common salivary gland involved of 21 cases. Most are of neoplastic origin with pleomorphic adenoma as commonest. 3 cases were misdiagnosed on USG in comparison with FNAC & histopathology with diagnostic accuracy of USG as 92%, while 100% diagnostic accuracy of FNAC observed in comparing with histopathology reports. Superficial parotidectomy was the most common surgery performed of 19 cases. Comparing to USG, FNAC is best helpful in diagnosis but histopathology is the gold standard. Salivary gland excision was the best surgical approach towards pathology of salivary gland swellings..
