Short Term Training


Elective training of three to four weeks was provided to two doctors, one from U.P. and another from Orissa and two months training in Obstetric Ultrasonography was given to another doctor from Mizoram.  Elaborate one-month endoscopy training was given to a doctor from M.P.  Also a doctor from Delhi joined as observer for one month in the department.


Continuing Medical Education


Faculty members of the department participated in and delivered 90 lectures in continuing medical education programmes, symposia and national and international conferences held during the year.



Research Completed


A.     AEvaluation of transcervical endometrial cryoablation in the treatment of dysfunctional

uterine bleeding. Study included 27 women of 25-50 years age group with menorrhogic cycles unresponsive to medical treatment, who had completed their family and had benign edometrial histology.  Pre procedure evaluation was done to exclude other causes for menorrhagia.   Endometrial cryoablation was done in postmenstrual phase, on OPD basis under paracervical block with N2O gas as refringerent.  Of  the 27 women who underwent the procedure 11 women (40.74%) attained amenorrhoea, 6 (22.22%) had oligomenorrhoea and 8 patients did not respond to treatment.  Only complication noted in the study was mild suprapubic pain for 24 hours and a vaginal discharge for 2 weeks.


A.                 A comparative study of the Effects of Various Modes of Hormone Replacement Therapy on Postmenopausal Health : The study included 55 postmenopausal women (28 natural and 27 surgical).  They were divided into five groups based the type of HRT they received.  Group I was given oral estrogen (1 mg/day) and medroxyprogesterone acetate (2.5 mg/day) continuously.  Group II was given transdermal estradiol patch (50 ug biweekly + oral medroxyprogesterone acetate 2.5 mg daily, group III received tibolone 2.5 mg/day continuous and group IV received vaginal cream (estriol) biweekly + medroxyprogesterone acetate 2.5 continuous and group V was control group and did not receive any hormone.  All the patients were called for follow-up at three months and six months.  Mean age at menopause in this study was 45.6 + 4.7 years and most of the patients were within 5-7 years since menopause.  The serum estradiol increased in all the treatment groups, significantly in oral group when compared to control group, which decreased.  Effects of HRT on menopausal symptoms: there was 50-60% improvement in postmenopausal symptoms when compared to control group.  There was a trend of increase in serum cholesterol in all the groups except tibolone group.  This increase could be because of continuous low dose of progesterone intake.  There was increase in HDL in all the three treatment groups, in comparison to control group.  There was increase in LDL-C in all the groups, but the increase was significant only in control group.  There was increase in VLDL-C in all the groups except oral group statistical significance.  There was a rising trend in serum triglycerides levels except in tibolone group.


B.                 Laparoscopic management of ectopic pregnancy : evaluation of clinical parameters and decline of serum  bhcG levels.


Fifteen patients of ectopic pregnancy underwent laparoscopic surgery from July 1998 through September 2000.  Average age of patients was 20.2 years.  Maximum cases presented with amenorrhoea and pain abdomen, mean jerum  -

b-hcG 4278.75 MIU/ml.  All cases underwent successful surgery laparoscopically and were uneventfully discharged on post-operative day 2.  All patients had negative serum b-hcG levels by day 21.  There were no cases of persistent ectopic pregnancy.


C.                 “Evaluation of cystic ovarian masses by ultrasound, color doppler, CT scan and aspiration cytology : Correlation with histology”.

A total number of 30 patients having ovarian tumour > 5cm were evaluated by clinical examination, ultrasound, color doppler, CT scan and aspiration cytology.   The correlation of each above modality with the histopathology after the surgery of ovarian tumour was evaluated.  The study concluded that  (1) Clinical evaluation was best parameter in differentiating between benign and malignant ovarian tumour, giving a sensitivity of 100% specificity of 96% and diagnostic accuracy of 96.6%.  (2) CT scan was not cost effective.  (3) Doppler study had very low sensitivity and specificity of 40% and 80% respectively and  (4) Aspiration cytology with specific findings had good diagnostic co-relation.

Collaborative Research Completed


A.                 Prenatal diagnosis of fetal RhD group from amniotic fluid and chorionic villus tissue by polymerase chain reaction :  The knowledge of fetal RhD status is very useful in the management of pregnancies with Rh isoimmunisation.  If the father is heterozygous Rh positive, there is a 50% chance that the fetus is Rh negative.  If the fetus is diagnosed Rh negative, it will eliminate the need to monitor and treat the individual pregnancy intensively with serial ultrasound, amniocentesis or cordocentesis, maternal high dose IVIG and intrauterine fetal blood transfusion.  However, if the fetus is Rh positive intensive therapy and vigilance is indicated for a favourable outcome in these very high risk pregnancies.  In Rh-negative non-immunised pregnancies, knowledge of blood group avoids use of Anti D after invasive procedures or prophylactic Anti D (28-30 weeks), threatened abortion, antepartum haemmorhage, and external cephalic version.


The aim of the study was to determine the technique of determination of RhD group from amniotic fluid and chorionic villus tissue and to compare the accuracy of RhD grouping by polymerase chain reaction with serological fetal/neonatal cord blood Rh group.


Fetal RhD group was attempted by using Polymerase Chain Reaction from 33 amniotic fluid samples and 27 chorionic villus samples obtained by amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling respectively.  It was correlated with fetal/neonatal cord blood type (serology) obtained by cardicentesis/cordocentesis or after delivery.


In Conclusion


1.                  Fetal RhD group could be determined by Polymerase Chain Reaction in 25/33 amniotic fluid samples.

2.                  RhD group was determined by Polymerase Chain Reaction in 27/27 Chorionic villus samples.

3.                  Fetal RhD was 96% accurate (24/25-amniotic fluid NDA) when correlated with fetal cord blood serology.

4.                  Fetal RhD group was 96.3% accurate (26/27 Chorionic Villus DNA) when correlated with fetal cord blood serology.


Although larger studies are needed to confirm the sensitivity and specificity of this method, the ability to determine the RhD status of the fetus in pregnancy represents a major advance in the management of pregnancy in Rh negative women.
