|Abstract||Objectives: To compare the immediate and long term results of percutaneous mitral valvotomy using metallic commissurotome and Inoue balloon in juvenile mitral stenosis. Background: Inoue balloon technique for mitral commissurotomy (IBMC) is well established and carried out worldwide in the treatment of juvenile mitral stenosis. Percutaneous mitral metallic commissurotomy (PMMC) is reported to be a cheaper and effective alternative to balloon mitral commissurotomy. Methods: Thirty-three patients aged less than 20 years, who underwent PMMC, were compared with 33 age and sex matched control patients who underwent IBMC. Success of valvotomy, procedure related complications, and follow-up events of the two techniques were compared. Results: Basal echocardiographic and hemodynamic data were similar in both groups. Procedural success was similar in both groups, 31/33. Complications like cardiac tamponade and mitral regurgitation (requiring or not requiring mitral valve replacement) were similar in both groups. On follow-up of more than 3 years, both groups had comparable hemodynamic parameters and restenosis rates. Conclusions: Both IBMC and PMMC are successful in providing relief from severe juvenile mitral stenosis in terms of gain in valve area and reduction in transmitral gradient. Both techniques have similar procedural success and complication rates. The long term follow-up results are comparable at follow-up of more than 3 years. (c) 2006 Wiley-Liss, Inc.|

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.
