|Abstract||An attempt was made to correlate the NYHA Functional class with the hemodynamic status of 196 patients at an average of 21.2 months following the intracardiac repair of tetralogy of Fallot. 171 patients were in Functional class I (87.2%), 9 in class III (4.5%), 5 in class II (2.5%) and 11 in class IV (5.6%). Right and left heart catheterisation and cardiac angiography revealed the hemodynamic status of these patients to be excellent in 92 (46.4%), good in 37 (18.8%), satisfactory in 6 (3.0%) and unsatisfactory in 61 (31.6%). Whereas all patients in Functional class II, III and IV had unsatisfactory hemodynamic findings, patients in Functional Class I were hemodynamically heterogeneous and included excellent (53.8%), good (21.6%), satisfactory (3.5%) and unsatisfactory (21%) groups. The surgical technique did not seem to determine the functional status. While early reoperation is advisable for patients with functional disability, caution is necessary in considering reoperation for patients in Functional class I who have hemodynamic findings which are classified as unsatisfactory.|

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.
