Normal mouth opening in an adult Indian population. - Journal of maxillofacial and oral surgery
Mouth opening among different population has been shown to vary considerably and its range is specific for a given population. The present study is an attempt to calculate the normal mouth opening in adult Indian population.A total of 894 adults, 463 males and 431 females, in the age range of 21 to 70Â years were studied. The subjects were asked to open their mouth maximally till no further opening was possible. The distance from the incisal edge of the upper incisor teeth to the incisal edge of the lower incisor teeth was measured using a calibrated fiber ruler. To determine correlation of mouth opening with age a Pearson correlation analysis was performed and statistical significance was tested by the application of t test.The mean maximal mouth opening for males was 51.3Â mm (SD 8.3) (Range 39-70Â mm). The mean maximal mouth opening for females was 44.3Â mm (SD 6.7) (Range 36-56Â mm). There was significant difference between the mouth opening of male and female in all the age groups with P value <0.05. A linear relationship was observed between the mouth opening and age in both males and females and the mouth opening decreased as the age increased.The mean maximal mouth opening for Indian males is 51.3Â±8.3Â mm and for females is 44.3Â±6.7Â mm. The mouth opening seems to decrease with age. The mouth opening of females is significantly less than the males in all the age groups.
An unusual cause of macular infarction: protein-losing enteropathy. - International ophthalmology
Protein-losing enteropathy is a multisystem disorder characterized by abnormally high loss of plasma proteins in the gastrointestinal tract. In addition to loss of plasma proteins there is also loss of anticoagulant globulins leading to a prothrombotic state in the body. Single case observation. The patient developed unilateral macular infarction with non-embolic cerebral infarct due to loss of Antithrombin 3 and Protein S proteins in the gastrointestinal tract. The patient had poor recovery of vision due to severe ischemic retinal injury. The gastroenterology team should be on an alert to rule out prothrombotic states in such patients to prevent such complications.
Anthropometry of the eyelid and palpebral fissure in an Indian population. - Aesthetic surgery journal / the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic surgery
The shapes of the eyebrow and upper eyelid are distinctive facial landmarks. In cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, maintenance of the anatomical relations of these landmarks ensures a pleasing postoperative appearance.The authors establish normal values for eyelid anthropometry in an Indian population.This prospective study included 216 patients between the ages of 16 and 60 years, divided into three groups by age (Groups A to C: 16 to 30 years, 31 to 45 years, 46 to 60 years, respectively) and sex. All patients were photographed from a frontal view, with measurements taken from these photographs. Parameters included the distance between the medial canthus and the lateral canthus (ie, the width of the palpebral fissure), the distance between the open upper eyelid margin and the lower eyelid margin, (ie, the vertical dimension of the palpebral fissure), the intercanthal distance, the interpupillary distance, and the height of the open upper lid. All measured values were analyzed by independent t-test.There was a significant increase in palpebral fissure from Group B to Group C. A significant increase was also observed in intercanthal distance as age progressed beyond 45 years. There was a significant decrease in the interpupillary distance as age increased-from Group A to Group B and from Group B to Group C-and a similar increase in eyelid height in that age progression.The anatomy of the Indian population is distinct in that the palpebral fissure in men is less than that in women. It appears that changes in the eye become more pronounced after 45 years, including an increase in palpebral fissure, intercanthal distance, and height of the upper lid, along with a decrease in interpupillary distance.
Primary neuroendocrine carcinoma presenting as mesenteric cyst. - Indian journal of gastroenterology : official journal of the Indian Society of Gastroenterology
Primary neuroendocrine carcinoma occurring in the mesentery is extremely rare. Surgical resection is the best treatment modality, with a chance of cure. We present a 65-year-old man with large mesenteric cyst and absence of bowel involvement. Histology showed a well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor.
