Abstract : Renal cell carcinoma comprehends a heterogeneous group of tumors which account for 2% of all cancers diagnosed. About 80-85% of all renal cell cancers affect males compared with females in the ratio 3:2. The overall incidence increases with life style. In rare instances, RCC affects children and young adults. The present study investigated the serum Vitamin D, calcium, Phosphorous and Magnesium levels in renal cell carcinoma patients. This is a Descriptive Study which includes five groups; Sample size of this study was 60. The study was conducted during the period from January 2017 to August 2018 in the Department of Biochemistry, Meenakshi Medical College Hospital and Research Institute, Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu. In the present study it was observed that the Vitamin D, calcium, Phosphorous and magnesium levels in serum were significantly decreased (p<0.001) in renal cell carcinoma patients as the disease progresses. Vitamin D deficiency is profound in RCC, with deficiency status increasing as the disease progresses from stage I to stage IV. In the present study we conclude that Vitamin D is a prognostic marker for Renal Cell Carcinoma..

Abstract : A Supracondylar fracture of humerus is a common paediatric fracture accounting for 50% to 70% of all elbow fractures. The present study is to compare the functional outcome of lateral based configuration versus criss cross pattern of pinning. Prospective study design were constructed with 45 children with Gartland type III supracondylar fractures of humerus, at the Department of Orthopaedics, Meenakshi medical college and research institute, kanchipuram, During the period August 2017 to August 2020.Inclusion criteria were in type III supracondylar fractures of humerus, in age group of 2-12 years, Type I and Type II supracondylar fractures and those treated by open reduction were excluded from study. The children were treated on an emergency basis with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning, under the guidance of C-arm image intensifier. Follow – up was done regularly at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and then once in 6 months. In our series, a total of 45 cases were treated; 28 patients (62%) underwent crossed pinning with medial and lateral pins and 17 patients (38%) underwent lateral pinning. The choice of method of pin fixation was made according to operating surgeon’s personal preference. Pin tract infection with pin loosening occurred in 3 patients in our series (6.6%). The follow-up period for cases ranged from 5 months to 36 months with an average follow-up duration of 19.53 months. In 5 month of follow-up our series was adequate enough to assess fracture union, malalignment, range of motion and recovery from nerve injuries. In our series, the functional outcome following criss cross pinning was excellent in 82% and good in 18% of cases. And cases treated with lateral pinning showed 71% excellent and 29% good results with no poor results. In our study there is no significant difference between the stability provided by criss cross pin fixation and two lateral pin fixation method. But the criss cross pin fixation group show two (7%) cases of iatrogenic ulnar nerve injuries. In the present study we conclude that the lateral pin fixation method for the treatment of Type III supracondylar fracture is safe and reliable..

Abstract : Ventral hernias are one of the most common challenging problems which the general surgeons confront. The rate of incidence of ventral incisional hernia in the long term after laparotomy has been reported to be 20-25%. Primary suture repair remains one of the oldest techniques. The use of sutures to fix these meshes is associated with complications like infections, seroma, fistulas and chronic pain. Self-gripping mesh has shown promising results in several different kinds of abdominal wall hernias. The aim of our study was to compare outcomes of self-gripping mesh with sutured polypropylene mesh and highlight its promising results. Our study was a comparative interventional study, carried out at SRM medical college hospital between April 2021 to October 2021, in which 80 patients undergoing open ventral hernia repair were selected as per satisfaction of inclusion criteria and divided into two groups: Conventional sutured mesh as Control group and Self- gripping suture-less mesh as Study group. This study was conducted after obtaining the institute human ethics committee approval. The intra- operative time, post-operative pain, post- operative infection and duration of hospital stay were recorded for all these patients and analysed. Based on the study, it was found out that the use of self-gripping mesh was found have less intra -operative time, less post- operative pain and infection and those patients had short hospital stay compared to sutured mesh. Thus self- gripping mesh is worthier as there is no sutures. It is time saving, surgeon friendly and improves patient’s quality of life..

Abstract : Haglund deformity is a common cause of posterior heel pain and consists of a constellation of soft tissue and osseous abnormalities. The treatment starts with conservative approach and ends with surgical treatment in case conservative treatment fails and the symptoms are bothersome. Different surgical procedures and approaches have been used for this deformity. In this study we evaluated the clinical and functional outcome of osteotomy of the calcaneal tuberosity with debridement of the retrocalcaneal bursa and the Achilles tendon using a lateral approach at our institute. This prospective study consists of 30heels (10 men, 15 women) with mean age of 40 years who were operated at Meenakshi Medical College from March 2016 tonov 2017, with posterior heel pain, who did not respond to conservative treatment and underwent surgical decompression of the retrocalcaneal bursae and excision of bony spurs. The functional outcome was evaluated by comparing the pre and postoperative American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) scores and Visual analog scale (VAS) score at 6th month and one year follow up. All patients were followed up for at least 12 months. AOFAS scores showed significant improvement at 6th months & one year follow up.3 out of 30 operated feet had superficial surgical site infection in the postoperative period that responded to antibiotic therapy and regular dressings. Open surgical decompressionis a safe and effective technique. We conclude lateral approach to debridement and calcaneal tuberosity resection is an effective method with good clinical and functional outcome in patients with refractory Haglund deformity..

Abstract : Vita app is a digital health app that offers to review, understand and analyze the health parameters that ultimately results in enhanced overall health via proper guidance. The app already has over 10k users whose feedback is helping its developers to constantly improve app features. The app is currently offering predictive markers for some common diseases in accordance with the Framingham study (2008). The next important step in the growth of the app is to include more diseases and their respective predictive markers and help track disease outcomes by patients and health professionals. This comprehensive review is aimed at bringing together all the available predictive markers of common diseases based on risk factor prediction, clinical parameters and investigations under one platform. Also, newly emerging molecular predictive markers have been mentioned with the foresight of including them to the app in the near future..
