IL-17, A Possible Salivary Biomarker for Preterm Birth in Females with Periodontitis
AbstractBackgroundPrevious studies have suggested that chronic periodontal infection may be associate with preterm births and low birth weight. The present study was conducted to evaluate the levels of interleukin-17 (IL-17) in saliva samples of pregnant females as a possible marker in determining whether or not an association exists between chronic periodontitis and preterm labor.AimThe aim of the study is to assess the relation between the periodontal health status and preterm low birth weight of the new born on the basis of salivary IL-17 levels.Materials and MethodsThis case –control study included a random sampl...

Krukenberg Tumour in Adolescents: Rare but Possible
AbstractKrukenberg tumour is a rare ovarian metastatic carcinoma arising from a primary malignancy elsewhere, classically the gastrointestinal tract and breast. They are bilateral solid ovarian tumour which most commonly occurs between 40 –60 years, and its occurrence in the second decade of life is extremely rare. In this short commentary, we present an unusual case of Krukenberg tumour in a 16-year old in which diagnosis was made intraoperatively and managed systematically, thus emphasising the need to suspect Krukenberg in all age groups.

Analysis of Morbidity, Mortality and Survival Pattern Following Surgery for Borderline Ovarian and Malignant Ovarian Tumour in Tertiary Care Centre
ConclusionsWith meticulous perioperative care, surgery for ovarian cancer in the primary and interval setting can be done with minimal morbidity and no postoperative mortality, especially in patients with co-morbidities. Grade is an important prognostic factor affecting the survival of patients with epithelial ovarian cancers undergoing surgery. Lymph node dissection helps achieve local control but may not improve the survival. (Source: The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology of India)

The highest percentage of pCNVs were found in the group with abnormal fetal ultrasound (5.40%) as compared to other groups, such as women with high maternal age (0.81%), biochemical screen positive (0.54%), previous abnormal offspring (0.81%) or heterozygous parents group (1.62%). Therefore, all women with abnormal fetal ultrasound must undergo CMA test for genotype –phenotype correlation.

AbstractPelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a very common condition which can greatly impact a woman ’s quality of life. Treatment options are individualized and typically involve a combination of physiotherapy, pessary insertion and surgical treatments. It is well known that nulliparous prolapse in India constitutes 1.5–2% of genital prolapse, while the incidence is even higher (5–8%) for yo ung women who have delivered one or two children, thus making it one of the highest rates in the world. This has necessitated the development of numerous conservative surgical treatment options for POP, which allows women...

Autologous Fascial Slings for Surgical Management of Stress Urinary Incontinence: A Come Back
AbstractStress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common type of urinary incontinence adversely affecting the quality of life of women. For mild SUI, life style changes, pelvic floor exercises and medical treatment with duloxetine may help. Most patients of moderate to severe SUI usually require surgical treatment. Various surgical treatment options include Kelly ’s plication, Burch colposuspension, bulking agents and sling surgeries. Although, suburethral fascial slings including the autologous rectus fascia slings were in vogue before 1990, they were overtaken by minimally invasive, faster and easier artificial midure...

Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome: Nitroglycerine a Friend or a Foe?
AbstractPosterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) refers to a clinico-radiological entity with characteristic features on neuroimaging and rapid onset of nonspecific symptoms including headache, seizure, altered consciousness and visual disturbance. It is a neurotoxic state in response to the acute changes in blood pressure leading to vasogenic oedema. It is often but not always associated with hypertension. However, control blood pressure is one of the mainstays of management in such cases. Nitroglycerine (NTG) is a potent vasodilator and is one of the drugs for treatment of hypertensive emergencies. It is found...

Ovarian Cancer Stem Cells: Newer Horizons
AbstractsThe ovarian cancer is one of the frequent cancers among women being diagnosed after cervical and breast cancer. The CA ovary is dreaded because even after successful treatment of the primary malignancy, the disease comes back and becomes resistant to conventional management. The prognosis in ovarian cancer management is mostly unsatisfactory, maybe because of the presence of ovarian cancer stem cells (OCSC). The hypothesis is that OCSC causes the recurrence of the ovarian malignancy. The OCSC can be identified by the presence of different markers and marker combinations. The assumptions are that CD44+, CD24+, &thi...

ConclusionThe currently available techniques of embryo biopsy have their advantages and shortcomings. Today, preimplantation genetic testing to diagnose a euploid embryo is widely used in clinical practice in couples undergoing IVF ET treatment. By eliminating the transfer of aneuploid embryos, the pregnancy rate improves per embryo transfer and it shortens the time of conception from the start of IVF treatment. We have also discussed the current scenario of the place of PGT-A for routine use in IVF treatment procedure in view of the possible risk of losing euploid embryos due to the shortcoming of the embryo biopsy proced...
