The interests of India and the United States (US) converge on multiple aspects in the Indo-Pacific. These interests range from economics to geopolitics to regional stability. India’s Look East Policy, rechristened as Act East Policy, in addition to economic, cultural and commercial goals, includes strategic interests to expand India’s influence in...

In this paper, we argue that China is seeking to establish a balance of power favourable to its interests in South Asia and the adjoining waters to curtail India’s rise. Military balancing, economic engagement, and the new multi-regional connectivity project – the “Belt and Road Initiative” – are the key components of China’s policy against India....
Article
Injury to spinal cord was produced in rats by the clip compression technique by placing the aneurysm clip extradurally for 30 seconds. The traumatised spinal segment and the adjoining upper segment were used for biochemical estimations. Motor function of the injured rats was evaluated using the inclined plane. Phospholipid phosphorus values were si...
Article
Contusion injury to cord was produced in macaca radiata monkeys. A 50 g lead weight was dropped from a height of 4 cm through a hollow glass tube onto a teflon impounder contoured to fit the dorsal surface of the exposed dura. A laminectomy extending from D3 to D9 was done in all animals and D7 was selected as the site of injury. Sham operated monk...
Article
Contusion injury is produced experimentally in anaesthetised monkeys by weight drop method. A group of animals having laminectomy alone served as sham controls. Drugs were administered 30 min after injury initially. Naloxone and nifedipine were administered as single dose administration immediately after injury. Dipyridamole and DMSO were administe...
Article
Focal cerebral ischemia was produced in monkeys by transorbital occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery. Following this, in one group of animals the total microvasculature, including both perfused and nonperfused vessels of the opposite caudate nucleus and insula, was examined by alkaline phosphatase staining of the endothelium. In another gr...
Article
A rare case is described of marked segmental stenosis of the axis secondary to developmental hypertrophy of the posterior neural arch causing cervical myelopathy. The patient made a remarkable recovery following decompressive laminectomy.
Article
Contusion injury was produced in monkeys by weight drop method. Verapamil was administered to monkeys daily for 7 days after the surgical procedure; Blood samples were collected on each day for estimation of verapamil concentrations upto day 8. CSF and spinal tissue segments were collected on day 8 and verapamil concentrations were estimated in the...
Article
Thirty consecutive Indian patients with focal or generalised seizures and single, small (less than 10 mm), enhancing lesions on CT scans (SSECTL) were studied. Five patients (Group A) were treated with anticonvulsants alone and did not have a biopsy. In ten patients (Group B) a CT guided stereotaxic biopsy of the lesion was carried out and in the r...
Article
Hydrocephalus is a common complication of tuberculous meningitis. Case studies of 114 patients with tuberculous meningitis and hydrocephalus, who underwent shunt surgery between July, 1975, and June, 1986, were reviewed to evaluate the long-term outcome and to outline a management protocol for these patients based on the results. Seven factors were...
Article
Total microvasculature of insula and caudate nucleus of 36 monkeys following right middle cerebral artery occlusion was subjected to a sequential morphometric analysis with Leitz ASBA image analysis system. Total microvasculature comprising perfused functional and nonperfused reserve parts was visualized by staining alkaline phosphatase activity in...
Article
A significant reduction in perfused microvasculature in right caudate nucleus and right insular cortex was demonstrated in 22 monkeys at 0.5, 4, 12, 24, and 48 hours and 2 weeks following transorbital occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery (RMCA). The microvasculature was visualized by an india ink perfusion method and subjected to morphomet...
Article
One hundred and thirty-three cases of brain abscess over a period of 20 years (1967-1986) were reviewed and 25 (18.7%) of these were associated with congenital heart disease (CHD). Headache was the predominant clinical feature and anaerobic streptococci were the commonest pathogen isolated. Craniotomy and excision of the abscess and burrhole aspira...
Article
Microvasculature of the right caudate nucleus and insular cortex of monkeys with their right middle cerebral artery occluded was morphometrically measured with an image analysis system at 1/2, 4, 12, 24, and 48 hr and 2 weeks. A biphasic change in the microvasculature was observed. In the first phase up to 12 hr an increase in the number and length...
Article
Empiric therapy, especially antituberculous therapy, is frequently given to Indian patients with brain masses. This report documents our experience in avoiding such therapy using CT-guided stereotaxy. Out of 101 procedures done on 99 patients with brain masses, 80 were done to obtain a histological diagnosis and 21 for therapeutic purposes. There w...
Article
Specific activity of acetylcholinesterase has been shown to be decreased following experimental spinal cord trauma (200 gcm) in primates. The decrease in activity was evident at 8, 24, 48 hr and 1 week after injury to the traumatized segments of spinal cord.
Article
Thirty three cases of posterior fossa abscesses seen over a period of 20 years are reviewed. 84.8% of these were secondary to otogenic disease. Two abscesses were due to tuberculosis and one due to actinomycotic infection. The overall mortality was 12.1%. Total excision of the abscess with appropriate antibiotic therapy was associated with an opera...
Article
Levels of noradrenaline (NA) and histamine (H) in the spinal cord of monkeys at 8, 24 and 48 hr following 200 g/cm contusion injury, 50 g of compression injury at 8 hr and decompression for 16 and 40 hr following 8 hr of compression were studied in the traumatised and in an adjacent non-traumatised segment. The NA level doubled in the traumatised a...
Article
Non-traumatic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea is an uncommon condition. 15 patients with non-traumatic CSF rhinorrhea having "normal pressure leaks" are presented. Metrizamide CT cisternography failed to reveal the site of the fistula in 3 patients. 11 of the 15 patients underwent surgery for closure of the fistulous communication. In 8 of the...
Article
Experimental focal cerebral ischemia was produced in monkeys (Macaca radiata) by occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery (MCA). The release of the lysosomal glycosidases, beta-D-hexosaminidase, alpha-L-fucosidase and alpha-D-mannosidase into the soluble fraction in the right basal ganglia of the experimental animals was measured at different...
Chapter
An ischaemic infarct was produced in primates by applying a clip to the right middle cerebral artery. Enzyme histochemical data are presented, documenting the development of a focal ischaemic brain lesion. The relatively slow demarcation of the ischaemic brain infarct appears to be correlated with the efficiency of the collateral blood supply. The...
Article
1. Focal ischaemia was produced experimentally in Macaca radiata monkeys by occlusion of middle cerebral artery (MCA). There was a lowering of the dopamine (DA) content of basal ganglia after 4 and 12 h of occlusion. 2. DA content was restored to normal in basal ganglia after restoration of blood flow. With the progress of time the DA content was i...
Article
1. Occlusion of the middle cerebral artery produced ischaemia and consequent changes in basal ganglia in the primate model of stroke within 0.5 h. 2. Dopamine content was decreased in the right basal ganglia from 0.5 h up to 12 h after occlusion. 3. Homovanillic acid content of the right basal ganglia increased initially at 0.5 h but, was decreased...
Article
Changes in norepinephrine and histamine levels in the spinal cord of monkeys at 1/2, 2, and 4 hours after 200 g cm of contusion injury, 50 g of compression injury, and 2 hours of decompression following 4 hours of compression were studied in the traumatized and an adjacent nontraumatized segment. Norepinephrine levels were elevated in the traumatiz...
Article
Physical and biochemical changes in the spinal cord of monkeys at 1/2, 2, and 4 hours following 200 g cm contusion injury and 50 g of compression injury and 2 hours of decompression following 4 hours of compression were studied. The pathophysiologic changes were milder in compression compared to contusion injury. Following contusion injury, at 1/2...
