A Cross-sectional Study of Cardiovascular Involvement in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus in an Urban Indian Tertiary Care Centre with Emphasis on 2-D Echocardiography.
Conclusions: Screening echocardiography may be recommended, especially at presentation, during SLE flare, or in the presence of cardiac symptoms. Moderate to severe pulmonary hypertension can develop any time in the course of the disease. It may be responsive to immunosuppression. Further detailed studies including multiple echocardiographic parameters and right heart catheterisation need to be undertaken to study the responsiveness of pulmonary hypertension to immunosuppresssive therapy.

Communication Adaptations for a Diverse International Patient Population.
Authors: Ghosh A, Joshi S, Ghosh AK Abstract We live in an age of hyper connectivity, people from around the world are looking outside their own national borders to receive medical care. As more people are learning about the quality that the elite Indian hospitals provide at a competitive, and often more affordable, price compared to other institutions around the world, they are becoming increasingly interested in receiving their medical care in Indian hospitals. It is for this exact reason that it is very important to learn the importance of communicating effectively with people from a diverse background. Over the...

Thyrotoxic Channelopathies.
Authors: Singhai P, Krishnan S, Patil VU Abstract Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP), a disorder most commonly seen in Asian men, is characterized by abrupt onset of hypokalemia and paralysis. The condition primarily affects the lower extremities and is secondary to thyrotoxicosis. Early recognition of TPP is vital to initiating appropriate treatment and to avoiding the risk of rebound hyperkalemia that may occur if high-dose potassium replacement is given. Here we present a case of 31 year old male with thyrotoxic periodic paralysis with diagnostic and therapeutic approach. PMID: 29322723 [PubMed - in process...

Cardiac Biomarkers and Myocardial Dysfunction in Septicemia.
Conclusion: We conclude that myocardial dysfunction using echocardiography is seen in around half of the patients with sepsis. Cardiac biomarkers can be routinely used in patients of septicemia to suggest the severity of sepsis,to detect myocardial injury and dysfunction and prognostication. CPK MB may be very useful to suspect myocardial dysfunction in such patients. PMID: 29327516 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Journal of the Association of Physicians of India)

Conclusions: One hundred and forty three women with Epilepsy (WWE) were recruited into the study. Psychiatric co-morbidity prevalence was 28.6 % (41/143) in WWE, 13.7 % in women with Diabetes and 8.3 % in women with no Epilepsy or Diabetes (normal controls). Overall, Depression was the commonest psychiatric co-morbidity. Psychiatric co-morbidity was significantly more in WWE as compared to normal controls. Seizure duration over 2 years, complex partial seizures and Polypharmacy were significantly linked to Psychiatric co-morbidities.

Drug Abuse as an Emanating Risk for Stroke in Young Adults.
Authors: Sulena, Sharma AK Abstract Drug abuse is a substantial risk factor for stroke among patients under 45 years of age and ranks second among the most commonly identified potential risk factors. Drug abusers aged 15 to 44 years are 6.5 times more likely to have a stroke than non drug users. Stroke occurring in persons under 45 years of age accounts for only 4% of all strokes but causes an enormous toll in personal suffering, lost productivity, and health care costs.
