According to Virsho triad, the blood stasis plays an important role in venous thrombosis, and it seems that their height affects the risk of venous thrombosis. For this reason, considering the pressure difference between the upper and the lower extremities, to assess the relationship between height and the risk of DVT in a case - control study, we have devoted this study. In a study conducted in two groups of 70 patients, with upper extremity DVT (30 patients) and chronic DVT (40 patients) and 50 control groups were examined. The two groups of case and control were matched in terms of age and gender, and questionnaires were completed for each of the groups based on the contents of the records and documents. This information includes age, gender, height, weight, location of DVT (proximal or distal of food and the proximal or distal of hand), respectively. After removal of confounding factors, in the study of the height difference between the study groups, the difference between the control group (9.87 ± 165.12) compared to DVT group (8.03 ± 169.48) was s tatistically significant (P = 0.009). In the study of height differences in varied groups, the height differences among patients with upper extremity DVT, (7.78 ± 165.23) compared to lower extremity DVT (6.68 ± 172.67) was statistically significant (P <0.001). The height difference between the control groups was statistically significant compared to DVT groups. The height differences between the patients with upper extremity DVT compared to lower extremity DVT was significant
Health and human rights are closely interrelated and has included in the WHO and UN constitution. India being a member of UN and WHO has incorporated the health and human rights in its constitution. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) being a long-term disease with far-reaching implications like social, financial and human rights related effects on patient, family, society and country. There is no previous data or studies on human rights in patients of CKD in India. Fifty patients of CKD stage 5, undergoing maintenance hemodialysis and 50 who underwent renal transplantation were studied. A questionnaire was given to each of the patient and the answers were recorded as per protocol and data analyzed by SPSS 15 for windows. All patients who underwent renal transplantation were aged <40 years and majority (96 %) of those on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) were >40 years. Fifty-six percent of patients were aware of the term human rights and there was no difference in awareness based on mode of therapy. Majority (87%) were not knowing about human rights violations and whom to approach whenever there is any violation. Only 26% of patients were employed; local committees supported most of those who underwent transplantation whereas majority of those on MHD were spending with family support and savings. Majority of those who underwent transplantation were satisfied with family and society support and were looking for opportunities for work. There is need to increase the awareness regarding human rights and its violations. There is also need to launch a national program to support the patients of CKD for the treatment and rehabilitation to increase the productivity
