Description of Facial Analysis and Gene ALX3 Polimorfism of Down Syndrome

Abstract : Physical abnormalities can be found in Down Syndrome patients. ALX3 gene mutations are result in frontonasal dysplasia. One of the peculiarities of facial anthropometry of Minangkabau women is the wide intercanthus distance when compared to Javanese and Batak women. A descriptive observational study was conducted on Down Syndrome patients and Minangkabau ethnicity aged 10-29 years who met the criteria as control. Data sampling of this study are taken by purposive sampling. Facial analysis using


Relationship Between The Duration of Amiodarone Consumption on ONH, Contrast Sensitivity and Color Vision in Arrythmia Patient

Abstract : Amiodarone was the most common used antiarrhythmic drug, which could cause toxic optic neuropathy, as the side effect. Toxic optic neuropathy manifested as edema of ONH, impaired contrast sensitivity and color vision and this side effect can occur since the first month of amiodarone consumption. To determine the relationship between the duration of amiodarone consumption on ONH, contrast sensitivity and color vision in arrythmia patient. This study was an analytical observational study with cros


Hormonal Profile in Women among Polycystic ovarian Syndrome With and Without Hirsutism

Abstract : A cross-sectional study was conducted at the Medical city / out-patient department of Baghdad teaching Hospital/infertility center/gynecology out-patient clinic / Endocrine and DM clinic from the 2nd of January to the end of 31th of May 2022.A total of 139 women were included in the study. All women in the studied sample were of the reproductive age group with a mean age of (28.9 ± 6.3) years. Of the total, 121 (87.1%) and 18 (12.9%) were married and unmarried (single), respectively. Ninety-nin


High prevalence of multi-drugs resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from various samples in Duhok, Iraq.

Abstract : Pseudomonas aeruginosa (p. a.) multidrug resistance strains have been seen all over the world and pose a severe health risk. The current study sought to determine the prevalence of these bacteria in several samples from Duhok, Iraq. Isolated P. a. samples were tested for antibiotic sensitivity for quinolones, aminoglycoside, meropenem, ampicillin, cephalosporin and others using the VITEK2 compact system, and then conventional PCR technique was used to test for the presence of five plasmid genes


The Relationship between Cleft Lip and Palate Accompanied with Tetralogy of Fallot in Children and the Mother with History of Gestational Diabetes

Abstract : Researchers believe genetic and environmental factors cause most cases of cleft lip and palate. However, the exact cause was not found. There is an assumption that cleft lip and palate condition has something to do with Tetralogy of Fallot in children with Gestational Diabetes Mothers. Then it is also found in babies with cleft lip and palate conditions, usually accompanied by other congenital anomalies, but not always. This then led to further speculation that there is a relationship between th


Improved LV Function Following RVOT Stenting in a Late Presenter ToF Patient with Recurrent Cardiac Arrest

Abstract : Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) cases with late presentation were more common than previously realized and often undetected despite proper screening. This population initially has a small degree of right ventricular outflow obstruction, allowing them to receive better oxygenation. The incidence of ToF in NCCHK from 2019–2021 was 883 cases. The palliative interventions which aim to increase pulmonary blood flow are still considered the first-choice treatment in patients with critical ToF unsuitable f


The effectiveness of online learning in improving the knowledge about medical coding: a pilot study

Abstract : Medical coding (MC) is the process of converting clinical terminologies and concepts into a list of codes, which may be alphanumeric or numeric, in order to provide well-written patient records and more accurate translation. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of an online course in increasing the knowledge of medical coding among medical graduates, and to assess their satisfaction towards online education. The study recruited fourteen recent medical graduates. The onlin


A Model of Midwife Assistance in Primary Care: Handling Pre-Eclampsia Cases in Central Sulawesi

Abstract : A quasi-experimental study was conducted in 2019 in 3 (three) districts/cities (Palu City, Sigi Regency, and Donggala Regency) in Central Sulawesi. This research was conducted to increase the knowledge and skills of midwives in the detection of pre-eclampsia, to increase referrals for pregnant women with pre-eclampsia to district/city hospitals, and to improve supervision of midwives in the detection and referral of pre-eclampsia cases by universities (the divisions of Public Health Sciences and


FEATURES OF TREATMENT TACTIC AND PHYSICAL THERAPY, AND IMMUNE SYSTEM SPECIFICS IN ULCERATIVE GASTRODUODENAL BLEEDING COMPLICATED BY CARDIOVASCULAR PATHOLOGY

Abstract :

This guideline presents recommendations for the step-wise management of patients with overt upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Hemodynamic status is first assessed, and resuscitation initiated as needed. Patients are risk-stratified based on features such as hemodynamic status, comorbidities, age, and laboratory tests. Pre-endoscopic erythromycin is considered to increase diagnostic yield at first endoscopy. Pre-endoscopic proton pump inhibitor (PPI) may be considered to decrease the need for e


THE PLACE OF LYMPHOTROPIC ANTIBACTERIAL THERAPY IN THE TREATMENT OF TUBERCULOUS PLEURISY

Abstract :

Tuberculous pleurisy can result in pleural fibrosis, calcification and thickening. To prevent these complications, corticosteroids are frequently used in addition to antituberculous drugs; however, new therapeutic regimens can control the disease and minimise the sequelae, and there is no convincing evidence of the benefit of the use of corticosteroids as adjuvant therapy. Patients received isoniazid 5 mg/kg and rifampicin 10 mg/kg daily for six months. Additionally, they were randomly assign
