Abstract: During embryological development, the midgut undergoes a process of growth and lengthening, which begins at week 5 of gestation and ends shortly after birth and also includes herniation in the umbilical cord, rotation, reduction and fixation. Rotation occurs counterclockwise around the superior mesenteric artery and ends at week 12, at which time the intestine re-enters the abdominal cavity and is attached to the parietal peritoneum, with different anchor points.

Abstract: A 35-year-old man presented to the outpatient department with a 1-month history of diarrhea, abdominal pain and weight loss. He had no documented medical history. Physical examination was unremarkable. Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen showed multiple lesions of liver, which was difficult to distinguish from tumor. Considering the ill-defined liver lesions in this patient, 18F-FDG PET-CT was assessed and revealed extensive multi-organ metastases

Abstract: Intussusception is an adverse event associated with rotavirus vaccines (RVV). RVV was introduced phase-wise in India since April 2016.

Abstract: The chronic infection HBV is a worldwide public health trouble with high morbidity and mortality. The vertical transmission (pregnancy) has consequences for mother and baby. During pregnancy, cell-mediated immunity is suppressed, possibly because of an increase in adrenal corticosteroids, estrogens, and progesterone, thereby allowing the woman to tolerate the semiallogenic fetus.

Abstract: Current allopathic treatments for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are of limited efficacy. Complementary therapies, such as acupuncture, moxibustion, massage and cupping, including hijama, are frequently promoted in the lay press as effective alternatives. In addition, a number of clinical trials have been published, especially with regards to acupuncture, which indicate that they do have therapeutic benefits.
Retrospective Study Pages 120-125
Abstract: Endoscopic variceal band ligation (EVBL) plays an important role in management of esophageal varices for both primary prophylaxis and acute hemorrhage. However, life-threatening bleeding secondary to post-banding ulceration, whilst uncommon, can occur. This study aimed to identify rates of EVBL-induced ulcer bleeding in elective and non-elective settings, and to assess potential risk factors which contribute to this serious complication.

Abstract: We describe our experience with a 69-year-old gentleman who presented with phlegmonous acute cholecystitis affecting a left-sided gallbladder. The cholecystectomy was successfully completed by a total laparoscopic approach. Through this Case report we highlight the possibility of occurrence of such an entity (true left-sided gallbladder), the risks entailed, and to stress the need to abandon surgical hubris in favour of wisdom in the interest of patient safety should the situation appear unclear and overtly challenging to the surgeon.

It most commonly arises in the placenta, but other primary sites have been described. Metastatic disease occurs in ~30% of cases given the aggressive nature of the choriocarcinoma.

Abstract: For optimum profile of probiotics, we considered positive results from specific strains in the published literature and commercially-available probiotic bacteria from credible global suppliers. As a result, we chose a blend of five strains of Bifidobacteria and ten strains of Lactobacilli. For an optimum carrier, we chose a proprietary blend of organic green vegetable and fruit juices.
