|Abstract||Formation of a large aortic root abscess is an infrequent complication of aortic valve endocarditis in adults. Extrinsic compression of the coronary arteries by this abscess is still rarer. Here, we report a case of a 22-year-old male with aortic root abscess, who presented 2 months after the completion of treatment of endocarditis with exertional angina. Coronary angiogram revealed compression of proximal left anterior descending and left circumflex arteries by the abscess. The patient was successfully treated with pericardial patch exclusion of the abscess cavity and coronary artery bypass graft. The presentation of aortic root abscess with myocardial ischemia as a late complication of treated endocarditis has not been reported earlier.|

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.
