Risk Factors of Carbapenems Resistance in Klebsiella Pneumoniae Infection at a Tertiary Refererral and Teaching Hospital in Indonesia

Abstract : Klebsiella pneumoniae infections are challenging to treat because the high prevalence of klebsiella pneumoniae resistance, which restricts the selection of medications for this illness therapy. This research aims to analyze the risk factors and how they relate to the prevalence of carbapenem antibiotic resistance in infections caused by the Klebsiella pneumoniae. This is an analytic observational research with a cross-sectional design and was carried out at H.Adam Malik Hospital, Medan, Indonesi

Impact of Waste Generation and Composition on Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Health

Abstract : The waste sector (solid waste, domestic wastewater, and industrial wastewater) in Palembang City, which is one of the big cities in Indonesia, is still a serious problem. The high rate of waste accumulation and the composition of the waste have an effect on greenhouse gas emissions which can have an impact on health. A descriptive and analytic observational study was conducted to examine the impact of generation rate and composition on GKR emission estimates and public health. The results showed

Fracture of the pelvis occurs most commonly in the setting of a high-impact trauma and are often associated with additional fractures or injuries elsewhere in the body. This fracture has several complications. No literature systematically gives data about complications of pelvic fracture. This article attempts to encompass all available data to provide us with awareness about the

Oronasal Fistula Closure Using Lingual Flap Technique: a Clinical Trial

Abstract : Managing oronasal fistulae presents challenges for both patients and surgeons, with variations in defect size and surgical approaches. Fistulae are classified based on size and location, and the anteriorly based lingual flap is a preferred choice due to patient acceptance and adequate blood supply to the tongue. Ensuring flap stability is crucial for successful fistula closure. Various methods, such as suturing, splints, arches, and wire stabilization of the tongue sides, as well as gingiva and


Abstract : The success of endodontic treatment is dependent on triad endodontic. The endodontic instrument has tendency to leave amount of smear layer after its use. Therefore, irrigation becomes fundamental to ensure the cleaning. The goal of this research is to observe the differences among files toward smear layer production and the most effective activation method. Twenty-four single canal mandible premolars were decoronated in the cementoenamel junction and root canal treatment followed. The teeth wer

Reduction of post-endodontic pain after one-visit root canal treatment using intracanal cryotherapy: A Randomized controlled Trial

Abstract : Post-endodontic pain can occur due to periapical tissue injury by mechanical, chemical and microbial factors. Many methods including cryotherapy were introduced to reduce post-endodontic pain, therefore this study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of intracanal cryotherapy on reducing post-endodontic pain. The studied sample consisted of 30 root canal treatment in 15 patients aged between 22-49 years, they were allocated randomly into two groups: Group 1 (n=15, Experimental) root canal treatme

ProTaper Universal Retreatment System Supplemented by the XP-Endo Finisher File Optimizes the Removal of Various Gutta-percha

Abstract : The elimination of obturation materials in endodontic retreatment is one of the mandatory steps to achieve an optimal disinfection process. The utilization of bc-coated gutta-percha with bioceramic sealer can enhance adhesion, thus increasing the difficulty during endodontic retreatment procedures. The use of non-linear motion files such as XP-Endo Finisher can improve the cleanliness level of the root canal walls. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of XP-Endo Finisher in eliminating

Receptor Binding Domain Expression in COVID-19 Reinfection

Abstract : The recent rapid worldwide spread of SARS-CoV-2 has established a pandemic of potentially serious disease in the highly susceptible human population. Key issues are whether humans have pre-existing immune memory that provides some protection against SARS-CoV-2 and whether SARS-CoV-2 infection generates lasting immune protection against reinfection. The adage that ‘natural infection gives better immunity than vaccination’ have been held as a long-standing belief, including among health profes
