"Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research is at present a well-known Indian originated scientific journal which started with a humble beginning. I have been associated with this journal since many years. I appreciate the Editor, Dr. Hemant Jain, for his constant effort in bringing up this journal to the present status right from the scratch. The journal is multidisciplinary. It encourages in publishing the scientific articles from postgraduates and also the beginners who start their career. At the same time the journal also caters for the high quality articles from specialty and super-specialty researchers. Hence it provides a platform for the scientist and researchers to publish. The other aspect of it is, the readers get the information regarding the most recent developments in science which can be used for teaching, research, treating patients and to some extent take preventive measures against certain diseases. The journal is contributing immensely to the society at national and international level."

" Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR) is a multi-specialty medical and dental journal publishing high quality research articles in almost all branches of medicine. The quality of printing of figures and tables is excellent and comparable to any International journal. An added advantage is nominal publication charges and monthly issue of the journal and more chances of an article being accepted for publication. Moreover being a multi-specialty journal an article concerning a particular specialty has a wider reach of readers of other related specialties also. As an author and reviewer for several years I find this Journal most suitable and highly recommend this Journal."

Dr. Mamta Gupta,
"It gives me great pleasure to be associated with JCDR, since last 2-3 years. Since then I have authored, co-authored and reviewed about 25 articles in JCDR. I thank JCDR for giving me an opportunity to improve my own skills as an author and a reviewer.
It 's a multispecialty journal, publishing high quality articles. It gives a platform to the authors to publish their research work which can be available for everyone across the globe to read. The best thing about JCDR is that the full articles of all medical specialties are available as pdf/html for reading free of cost or without institutional subscription, which is not there for other journals. For those who have problem in writing manuscript or do statistical work, JCDR comes for their rescue.
The journal has a monthly publication and the articles are published quite fast. In time compared to other journals. The on-line first publication is also a great advantage and facility to review one's own articles before going to print. The response to any query and permission if required, is quite fast; this is quite commendable. I have a very good experience about seeking quick permission for quoting a photograph (Fig.) from a JCDR article for my chapter authored in an E book. I never thought it would be so easy. No hassles.
Reviewing articles is no less a pain staking process and requires in depth perception, knowledge about the topic for review. It requires time and concentration, yet I enjoy doing it. The JCDR website especially for the reviewers is quite user friendly. My suggestions for improving the journal is, more strict review process, so that only high quality articles are published. I find a a good number of articles in Obst. Gynae, hence, a new journal for this specialty titled JCDR-OG can be started. May be a bimonthly or quarterly publication to begin with. Only selected articles should find a place in it.
An yearly reward for the best article authored can also incentivize the authors. Though the process of finding the best article will be not be very easy. I do not know how reviewing process can be improved. If an article is being reviewed by two reviewers, then opinion of one can be communicated to the other or the final opinion of the editor can be communicated to the reviewer if requested for. This will help one’s reviewing skills.
My best wishes to Dr. Hemant Jain and all the editorial staff of JCDR for their untiring efforts to bring out this journal. I strongly recommend medical fraternity to publish their valuable research work in this esteemed journal, JCDR".

"I wish to thank Dr. Hemant Jain, Editor-in-Chief Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR), for asking me to write up few words.
Writing is the representation of language in a textual medium i e; into the words and sentences on paper. Quality medical manuscript writing in particular, demands not only a high-quality research, but also requires accurate and concise communication of findings and conclusions, with adherence to particular journal guidelines. In medical field whether working in teaching, private, or in corporate institution, everyone wants to excel in his / her own field and get recognised by making manuscripts publication.


Authors are the souls of any journal, and deserve much respect. To publish a journal manuscripts are needed from authors. Authors have a great responsibility for producing facts of their work in terms of number and results truthfully and an individual honesty is expected from authors in this regards. Both ways its true "No authors-No manuscripts-No journals" and "No journals–No manuscripts–No authors". Reviewing a manuscript is also a very responsible and important task of any peer-reviewed journal and to be taken seriously. It needs knowledge on the subject, sincerity, honesty and determination. Although the process of reviewing a manuscript is a time consuming task butit is expected to give one's best remarks within the time frame of the journal.
Salient features of the JCDR: It is a biomedical, multidisciplinary (including all medical and dental specialities), e-journal, with wide scope and extensive author support. At the same time, a free text of manuscript is available in HTML and PDF format. There is fast growing authorship and readership with JCDR as this can be judged by the number of articles published in it i e; in Feb 2007 of its first issue, it contained 5 articles only, and now in its recent volume published in April 2011, it contained 67 manuscripts. This e-journal is fulfilling the commitments and objectives sincerely, (as stated by Editor-in-chief in his preface to first edition) i e; to encourage physicians through the internet, especially from the developing countries who witness a spectrum of disease and acquire a wealth of knowledge to publish their experiences to benefit the medical community in patients care. I also feel that many of us have work of substance, newer ideas, adequate clinical materials but poor in medical writing and hesitation to submit the work and need help. JCDR provides authors help in this regards.
Timely publication of journal: Publication of manuscripts and bringing out the issue in time is one of the positive aspects of JCDR and is possible with strong support team in terms of peer reviewers, proof reading, language check, computer operators, etc. This is one of the great reasons for authors to submit their work with JCDR. Another best part of JCDR is "Online first Publications" facilities available for the authors. This facility not only provides the prompt publications of the manuscripts but at the same time also early availability of the manuscripts for the readers.
Indexation and online availability: Indexation transforms the journal in some sense from its local ownership to the worldwide professional community and to the public.JCDR is indexed with Embase & EMbiology, Google Scholar, Index Copernicus, Chemical Abstracts Service, Journal seek Database, Indian Science Abstracts, to name few of them. Manuscriptspublished in JCDR are available on major search engines ie; google, yahoo, msn.
In the era of fast growing newer technologies, and in computer and internet friendly environment the manuscripts preparation, submission, review, revision, etc and all can be done and checked with a click from all corer of the world, at any time. Of course there is always a scope for improvement in every field and none is perfect. To progress, one needs to identify the areas of one's weakness and to strengthen them.
It is well said that "happy beginning is half done" and it fits perfectly with JCDR. It has grown considerably and I feel it has already grown up from its infancy to adolescence, achieving the status of standard online e-journal form Indian continent since its inception in Feb 2007. This had been made possible due to the efforts and the hard work put in it. The way the JCDR is improving with every new volume, with good quality original manuscripts, makes it a quality journal for readers. I must thank and congratulate Dr Hemant Jain, Editor-in-Chief JCDR and his team for their sincere efforts, dedication, and determination for making JCDR a fast growing journal.
Every one of us: authors, reviewers, editors, and publisher are responsible for enhancing the stature of the journal. I wish for a great success for JCDR."

Dr. Shankar P.R.

"On looking back through my Gmail archives after being requested by the journal to write a short editorial about my experiences of publishing with the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research (JCDR), I came across an e-mail from Dr. Hemant Jain, Editor, in March 2007, which introduced the new electronic journal. The main features of the journal which were outlined in the e-mail were extensive author support, cash rewards, the peer review process, and other salient features of the journal.
Over a span of over four years, we (I and my colleagues) have published around 25 articles in the journal. In this editorial, I plan to briefly discuss my experiences of publishing with JCDR and the strengths of the journal and to finally address the areas for improvement.
My experiences of publishing with JCDR: Overall, my experiences of publishing withJCDR have been positive. The best point about the journal is that it responds to queries from the author. This may seem to be simple and not too much to ask for, but unfortunately, many journals in the subcontinent and from many developing countries do not respond or they respond with a long delay to the queries from the authors 1. The reasons could be many, including lack of optimal secretarial and other support. Another problem with many journals is the slowness of the review process. Editorial processing and peer review can take anywhere between a year to two years with some journals. Also, some journals do not keep the contributors informed about the progress of the review process. Due to the long review process, the articles can lose their relevance and topicality. A major benefit with JCDR is the timeliness and promptness of its response. In Dr Jain's e-mail which was sent to me in 2007, before the introduction of the Pre-publishing system, he had stated that he had received my submission and that he would get back to me within seven days and he did!
Most of the manuscripts are published within 3 to 4 months of their submission if they are found to be suitable after the review process. JCDR is published bimonthly and the accepted articles were usually published in the next issue. Recently, due to the increased volume of the submissions, the review process has become slower and it ?? Section can take from 4 to 6 months for the articles to be reviewed. The journal has an extensive author support system and it has recently introduced a paid expedited review process. The journal also mentions the average time for processing the manuscript under different submission systems - regular submission and expedited review.
Strengths of the journal: The journal has an online first facility in which the accepted manuscripts may be published on the website before being included in a regular issue of the journal. This cuts down the time between their acceptance and the publication. The journal is indexed in many databases, though not in PubMed. The editorial board should now take steps to index the journal in PubMed. The journal has a system of notifying readers through e-mail when a new issue is released. Also, the articles are available in both the HTML and the PDF formats. I especially like the new and colorful page format of the journal. Also, the access statistics of the articles are available. The prepublication and the manuscript tracking system are also helpful for the authors.
Areas for improvement: In certain cases, I felt that the peer review process of the manuscripts was not up to international standards and that it should be strengthened. Also, the number of manuscripts in an issue is high and it may be difficult for readers to go through all of them. The journal can consider tightening of the peer review process and increasing the quality standards for the acceptance of the manuscripts. I faced occasional problems with the online manuscript submission (Pre-publishing) system, which have to be addressed.
Overall, the publishing process with JCDR has been smooth, quick and relatively hassle free and I can recommend other authors to consider the journal as an outlet for their work."

Abstract

This is a report of a case of congenital pouch colon (CPC) type II, who was managed by a single stage procedure (exploratory laparotomy, ligation of the colo-vesical fistula, excision of the pouch and abdomino-perineal pull-through of the colon) which was done on the 2nd day of life. He developed severe stricture of the pulled colon and needed three further major operations (exploration and ileostomy, pull-through of the ileum and ileostomy closure). At present, he is 4 years old, is continent, is passing 3-4 stools per day and is doing well.

INTRODUCTION

CPC is an anomaly which is associated with anorectal malformation (ARM), where a part or the whole of the colon is replaced by a dilated pouch which communicates distally with a fistula to the genitourinary tract. It is also referred as “congenital short colon”, and “pouch colon syndrome” (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6). The standard procedure for the management of CPC is a three stage procedure (1), (2), (4). A primary single stage procedure for the management of all types of CPC in newborns has also been advocated with better continence, along with low morbidity and mortality (3). We report herein, a case of CPC type II, which was managed by a primary single stage procedure, but developed severe stricture of the pulled colon and needed three further major operations.

Case Report

A full term, 3.2 kg, male child was admitted to a nursing home for high ARM with a colo-vesical fistula. Exploration which was done through a left pelvic incision for colostomy; revealed CPC (type II) with colo-vesical fistula and a decision for a single stage procedure was made (not by the authors). Ligation of the fistula, excision of the pouch and the abdomino-perineal pull-through of the colon was done without protective stoma on Oct 3rd, 2006. Postoperatively, he developed perineal wound dehiscence, was treated conservatively and was discharged on the 15th post-operative day. He developed recurrent abdominal distention and features of distal intestinal obstruction due to the stricture of the pulled colon. He was being managed by anal dilatation, enema, saline wash outs, etc, till he presented to us. He also underwent circumcision for phimosis on March 4th, 2008 at the same nursing home by the same surgeon (not by the authors).
He was referred to us at the age of 21 months with features of intestinal obstruction and a poor urinary stream. His abdomen was distended and visible loops of the bowel were also seen. The anal opening only permitted an infant feeding tube with difficulty and a genital examination revealed meatal stenosis. He already had a contrast enema done, which showed severe stricture of the pulled colon (Table/Fig 1).
(Table/Fig 1): Contrast enema (AP and Lateral view) showing stricture of the pulled colon. Caecum and distal ileum also seen

The dye study also showed caecum and a dilated distal ileum. On July 17th, 2008, cystoscopy was done and it was found to be normal. He had only meatal stenosis, which was dilated adequately. At the same time, through the right supra - umbilical incision, an abdominal exploration was also done. There were adhesions and dilated loops of small bowel with no normal colon between the caecum and the stricture segment and therefore, adhesiolysis with a loop ileostomy was done. The post - operative period was uneventful. During follow up, he developed stoma stenosis and needed revision after a month. The dye study was done through ileostomy before a re pull-through, which also showed stricture of the pulled colon. The dye study also showed the caecum and the ileum distal to the stoma (Table/Fig 2). On March 18th, 2010 through an old left pelvic scar, the abdomen was explored and the stricture segment was resected out. The caecum, appendix and the terminal ileum were dissected and mobilized (Table/Fig 3). As there was no colon for coloplasty and the caecum was also not healthy, we decided to do an ileal pull- through. The caecum with appendix was excised and an ileal pull-through was done. The post operative recovery was uneventful. Four months later; the dye study was done through the ileostomy and it was found to be normal.
(Table/Fig 2): Contrast study done through ileostomy showing stricture of pulled colon. Caecum and ileum distal to stoma also seen

Ileostomy closure was done a month later, on Aug 12th, 2010 (Table/Fig 4) and (Table/Fig 5). At present, he is 4 years old and is doing well. He is continent and is passing 3-4 stools per day without soiling and perineal excoriation and is in regular follow up.

Discussion

CPC is defined as an anomaly in which the whole or a part of the colon is replaced by a dilated pouch which distally communicates with the fistula to the urogenital tract (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6). Singh and Pathak (1972) called this anomaly as “short colon”. Narsimha Rao, et al (1984) named this anomaly as “pouch colon syndrome” and they also proposed an anatomical classification for the same which has been widely accepted (1), (2), (3), (5). The incidence of the CPC among all the cases of ARM varies from 5 to 17.20% of all the cases (1), (2), (3), (6). The incidence of the CPC among the high ARM cases varies from 10 to 26% of all the cases (1), (3). At our department, we also reported 11.29% of CPC with all ARM cases and 19.60% with high ARM cases (2). A high incidence (55.8%) of CPC with high ARM cases was reported from Udaipur, Rajsthan (6). Almost all the series reported male preponderance (1), (2), (3), (5). This anomaly is seen most frequently in the Northern, North Western, and Central parts of the India and sporadic case reports have also been reported from other parts of the India and the world (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6). The exact cause of the unique geographical distribution is yet to be ascertained.
A widely accepted classification, based on the length of the normal colon, was present proximal to the dilated pouch, as given by Narsimha Rao, et al in 1984 (1). Wakhlu, et al simplified the classification as “partial short colon” (type A) and “complete short colon” (type B), depending on the length of the normal colon and the need for coloplasty (1), (4). Recently, Saxena and Mathur (2008) provided a classification for CPC, based on the anatomical morphology and they proposed 5 types of the CPC. They added the type V for double pouch colon with an interposed normal colon segment (6). The presence of a large air fluid level occupying more than half of the total width of the abdomen on the plain abdominal X-ray, either erect or inverted, is almost diagnostic of CPC (1), (2), (4). Pre-operatively, it is possible to diagnose pouch colon in about 75 to 90% of the cases (2), (3), (4).
The standard management of the cases of CPC is by staged surgical procedures. The aim of the surgery is to utilize the available length of the colon for absorption and storage capacity, as well as for the capability for propelling the faecal matter onwards with a continent anal opening. In cases with incomplete pouch colon (type III and IV), an adequate length of normal colon is present and so, the pouch can be excised while the colonic function is still preserved (1], (2), (5), (7). In cases with complete pouch colon (type I and II), these objectives can be achieved only by tabularizing the pouch in the form of Coloplasty (1), (4), (7).
Gangopadhyay et al advocated a primary single stage surgery for all types of CPC in newborns with better continence and cosmesis, along with low morbidity and mortality at low costs (3). According to them, the single stage procedure includes; exploratory laparotomy and ligation of the fistula, followed by the primary abdominoperineal pull-through or abdomino– posterior sagital anorectoplasty after pouch excision (partial or total pouch colon) or tuboplasty (total pouch colon) (3). A primary single stage operation at birth relieves alimentary tract obstruction, eliminates urinary tract contamination, establishes anorectal continuity and maximizes the potential for normal defecation reflexes at birth; all these can be achieved at one, rather than multiple operations. To achieve excellent results with the single stage operation, technical expertise is a must. Although a 11% mortality has been reported after a single stage operation, a majority of the mortalities have been attributed to associated malformations (3). In the present case, the reason for the failure of the single stage procedure; as we believe is the lack of expertise and lack of experience in dealing with cases of CPC. We have been able to achieve good and acceptable results after three stage corrective procedures by using an ileal pull- through.
