Introduction: Anemia is common problem in people of high socioeconomic status of all age group. Th is is usually seen with reduced work capacity, early fatigability, mental irritation, dyspnea etc. Despite of good and easy availability of food, young girls of high socioeconomic status still remain anemic mainly due to lack of self care in terms of nutritional diet, somewhat hate for green leafy vegetables, charm of junk foods devoid of nutritional substances including iron, inadequate physical exercise. Present study was conducted to assess the pulmonary functions in young anemic female medical students belonging to high socioeconomic status. Methods: Based on Hemoglobin level subjects were divided in to 2 groups. Group 1 comprised of obese students (Hb>12 gm/dl) and group 2 comprised of anemic students (Hb

Introduction: Supraorbital foramen is an important site for various surgical and anesthetic procedures. Accurate localization of the foramen holds the key to success, although racial variations exist in various population groups. Th e study included the morphometry of supraorbital foramen and its location with respect to nearby anatomical landmarks. Methods: A total of 100 dry skulls (60 male and 40 female) were collected and observed for the study. Various parameters in the sagittal and transverse planes were noted from supraorbital foramen on both sides, together with its vertical and horizontal dimensions. In addition, the location of supraorbital foramen with respect to midline and frontozygomatic suture were noted. Results: Th e study of 100 adult skulls revealed that the SON (71% on right and 70% on left) was found more frequently than the SOF (29% on right and 30% on left).Th e distance between centre of SOF/SON and midline was found to be statistically signifi cant on right and left sides. Conclusions: Th is study makes possible the identifi cation of exact position of supraorbital foramen and also discuss its racial variation. Keywords: Morphometry, Supraorbital foramen, Supraorbital nerve block

6 Osteoscopic Assessment of Sexual Dimorphism in Hip Bone, Alok Kumar Chaudhary1, Sanjeev Kumar Jain2 1Assistant Professor, Department of Anatomy, SGRRIM&HS, Dehradun, UK, India, 2Professor, Department of Anatomy, Teerthanker Mahaveer Medical College & Research Centre, Moradabad, U.P., India
Introduction: Th e pelvis is most sexually dimorphic and is the fi rst bone assessed in sex determination because it is the skeletal element most aff ected by reproduction and parturition.1 Th e assessment of the pelvis is made through metric measurements as well as through the visual analysis of non-metric traits; both important aspects of the analysis. Th e best methods for determining sex from adult skeletal remains involve measurement and inspection of the hip bone that presents a number of gender-related anatomical diff erences.2 Most osteologists visually (stereoscopic) evaluate these diff erences and integrate this subjective assessment ofhip bonemorphology into their sex determinations. Th e aim of thepresent study is to visually evaluate sexual diff erences in hip bone and comparing its effi cacy with metric assessment. Methods: Th is study is done on 46 hip bones of adult individuals of known sex from museum of department of anatomy of SGRRIM&HS Dehradun and TMMC&RC Moradabad, India. All these hip bones were visually examined and under mentioned fi ve characters of the hip bone were used, (A) aspects of the preauricular surface, (B) aspects of the greater sciatic notch, (C) the form of the composite arch, (D) the morphology of the inferior pelvis, and (E) ischiopubic proportions. Results: In this study traits of the group (A) were most sexually dimorphic while traits of the group (E) were least sexually dimorphic. Conclusion: Diagnostic accuracy is excellent when the complete hip bone is available. Hip bone features used for sex determination by visual assessment seem to be fairly stable. Keywords: Hip bone, Metric and nonmetric traits
7 Cytomorphometrical Analysis of Exfoliated Buccal Mucosal Cells: Effect of Smoking, Sumit Babuta1, Rohin Garg2, Khushboo Mogra3, Neha Dagal4 1Assistant Professor, Department of Anatomy, SMS Medical College, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, 2Assistant Professor, Department of Anatomy, Teerthanker Mahaveer Medical College & Research Centre Moradabad, U.P., India, 3PG Resident, Department of Anatomy, SMS Medical College, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, 4Senior Demonstrator, Department of Anatomy, SMS Medical College, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India
Introduction: Exfoliative cytology is a non-aggressive, non-invasive procedure with higher patient compliance and is therefore, an attractive technique for the early diagnosis of oral lesions. Th e purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare cytological changes using morphometric analysis of the exfoliated buccal mucosal cells in smokers, with results obtained for non-smokers. Methods: Smears were collected from the clinically normal buccal mucosa of 120 individuals. Age range of subjects taken was 40-60 years. Smears were then stained with Papanicolaou stain. Results: Mean NA for smokers was signifi cantly elevated compared with the mean NA for non-smokers. Mean CA in smokers was decreased as compared to non-smokers but the diff erence was not signifi cant. Also, N/C ratio was signifi cantly elevated in smokers group. With increasing heavy exposure in duration of years, Cytomorphometric changes show signifi cant altered values for all three measured parameters (NA, CA and N/C ratio). Conclusion: Increase in NA and decreased CA as well as altered N/C ratio would appear to be due to smoking tobacco. Cytomorphometric analysis can be used regularly to detect these cell alterations. Th is method can also aid in motivating individuals to withdraw from adverse eff ects of tobacco smoking. Currently, use of exfoliative cytology has increased as an adjunct to screening of precancerous lesions and malignancies of the oral cavity. Keywords: Cytomorphology, Exfoliative cytology, Oral mucosa, Tobacco smoking
8 Review of Various Indicators for Assessment of Zinc Requirement and Effectiveness, Manisha Naithani1 Jyoti Bharadwaj2 Anshuman Darbari3 1Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India, 2Lecturer-Home Science (F&N) Swami Purnanand Degree College of Technical Education, Tehri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, India. 3Assistant Professor, Department of CTVS, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rishikesh-249201, Uttarakhand, India
Zinc (Zn) has been shown to be an essential micronutrient for all organisms including plants, animals and human beings. Deprivation of zinc arrests growth and development and produces multiple system dysfunctions in all these organisms. Because of the involvement of this micronutrient in so many core areas of metabolism, it is common that the features of zinc defi ciency in humans are nonspecifi c with a wide range including growth retardation, alopecia, diarrhea, delayed sexual maturation and impotence, eye and skin lesions and even impaired appetite. Clinical features and laboratory criteria are not always consistent. Th is inconsistency poses a major diffi culty in the search to reliable yet sensitive clinical or functional indicator of zinc status for validation. Further, it has become clear now that the homeostatic mechanisms fall short of perfection and clinically important features of zinc defi ciency can occur with only modest degrees of zinc defi ciency. In this review article we try to look critically at the available tests and various indicators for assessment of zincs level for potential requirement and eff ectiveness and try to conclude about the effi cacy of each. Keywords: Enzymes, Micronutrient, Zinc
9 Cytotherapy for Osteonecrosis of Hip, Najmul Huda1, Asif Iqbal2, Ajay Pant3, M Julfi qar2, Nitin Kumar Agarwal2, Pankaj Gupta4 1Associate Professor, 2Assistant Professor, 3Professor and Head, 4Senior Resident, Department of Orthopaedics, Teerthanker Mahaveer Medical College and Research Centre, Moradabad U.P., India
Osteonecrosis of hip is a pathological condition that leads to collapse of the femoral head, & the need for total hip replacement (THR). Research has shown that at the cellular level there is decrease in osteoblastic activity & the local mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) population that leads to osteonecrosis of femoral head (ONFH). Cellular therapy could thus be used to improve the local cellular environment. Th is can be achieved by implanting bone marrow, containing osteogenic precursors into the necrotic lesion of the femoral head. Keywords: Cytotherapy, Hip, Osteonecrosis, Stem cells Hernigou

Th e incidence of ovarian tumor complicating caesarean section was about 1 in 200 caesarean births while ovarian tumors complicated termination of pregnancy in 1 of 594 procedures. Any type of Ovarian mass can be encountered during pregnancy, but the most common are cystic. Because pregnant women are usually young, malignant tumors are relatively uncommon. A patient third gravida with previous 2 caesarean sections presented in an emergency with complaints of persistent pain in abdomen for last 7 days with gestational age of 35 weeks and 3 days. Emergency Caesarean section was done to deliver an alive male baby of 2.25 Kg with good Apgar score. Intraoperative fi nding was suggestive of a huge multiloculated left ovarian mass of approximately. 403015 cm weighing 20 Kg with straw coloured mucinous fl uid. Up to 3 liters of fl uid aspirated before delivering the cyst out of the abdomen. Left salpingoopherectomy was done and specimen sent for histopathological examination that showed Mucinous cystadenoma of the ovary. Post operative period remain uneventful.

13 The Study of Different Presentations of Breast Lumps in Radiographic Imaging, Shalini Saraswat1, Amit Kumar2 1Assistant Professor, Department of Radiodiagnosis, Teerthanker Mahaveer Medical College & Research Centre, Moradabad - 24400, U.P.,India, 2Assistant Professor, Department of ENT, Teerthanker Mahaveer Medical College & Research Centre, Moradabad - 24400, U.P.,India
Introduction: Breast USG is an established and accurate tool for the primary evaluation of breast lumps and pathology. It also compliments X- ray mammography in further evaluation and characterization of breast masses and thus avoids surgeries in benign breast diseases and pathology. Method: For USG examination of the breast lumps, a linear-array transducer of 5-7 MHz frequency is required with a good resolution machine. Results: We present a pictorial essay on the role of USG in evaluation and characterization of various breast lumps and pathology. Conclusion: Breast sonography considerably improves the visualization and evaluation of lumps in mammographically radiodense breasts and helpful in the characterization of it, either as solid or cystic lesion. It also improves the specifi city of X-ray mammography when used as an adjunct to it. It is also helpful in guiding FNAC/biopsy from the breast masses.
