|Abstract||Sixteen patients with coronary arteriovenous fistula (CAVF) were studied by two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE). Of these 12 had Doppler studies. In all, the diagnosis of CAVF was confirmed by aortic root or selective coronary angiography. In 8 patients, the 2DE findings suggested CAVF. Five patients had dilated main coronary arteries and in 4 patients abnormal fistulous channels were identified. Two had diastolic flutter of the tricuspid valve and one had spontaneous contrast in the right atrium. In 11 out of 12 patients, Doppler analysis picked up a continuous flow (to the right atrium in 5, right ventricle in 4 and to both ventricles in 2 patients) prior to the cardiac catheterisation. We conclude that noninvasive diagnosis of CAVF can be made with the combined use of two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography in most of the patients.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
