IMPROVEMENT OF DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS OF HERPES VIRUS ETIOLOGY

Abstract :

Infectious mononucleosis (IM) is a common viral infection that typically causes fever, pharyngitis, and lymphadenopathy in young patients. The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is the most common cause of IM, followed by cytomegalovirus (CMV). Given that serological testing is associated with limitations regarding its accuracy, availability, and time to receive results, clinical differentiation based on symptoms, signs, and basic tests would be useful. We evaluated whether clinical findings could be u


RECKLINGHAUSEN NEUROFIBROMATOSIS: PRACTICE-BASED VIEW

Abstract :

Neurofibromatosis, which was first described in 1882 by Von Recklinghausen, is a genetic disease characterized by a neuroectodermal abnormality and by clinical manifestations of systemic and progressive involvement which mainly affect the skin, nervous system, bones, eyes and possibly other organs. The disease may manifest in several ways and it can vary from individual to individual. Given the wealth of information about neurofibromatosis, we attempted to present this information in differen


COMPLICATIONS OF THYROID SURGERY

Abstract :

To study the frequency of postoperative complications after thyroid surgery indicated for various benign and malignant lesions and to corroborate the results in relation to the extent of surgery and a clinical overview of evolution of thyroid surgery. An analytical study was carried out at a tertiary care center over a period of 3 years from January 2011 to December 2013. Data were collected from 80 patients who underwent thyroidectomies for various thyroid diseases at this center. Hemithyroi


PREVENTION OF AFTER LIPOSUCTION SOFT TISSUE DEFECTS BY STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION

Abstract :

Tissue engineered scaffolds for adipose restoration/repair has significantly evolved in recent years. Patients requiring soft tissue reconstruction, caused by defects or pathology, require biomaterials that will restore void volume with new functional tissue. The gold standard of autologous fat grafting (AFG) is not a reliable option. This review focuses on the latest therapeutic strategies for the treatment of adipose tissue defects using biomolecule formulations and delivery, and specifical


Relationship between Serum Ferritin Level and Troponin I Level in Beta Thalassemia Major Children in Haji Adam Malik Hospital, Indonesia

Abstract : Hemolysis and regular blood transfusions as the long-term beta thalassemia major treatment can cause iron accumulation and damages these organs, potentially causing death. Iron accumulation in the heart muscle decreases ventricular function and may progress to cardiomyopathy and heart failure. Serum ferritin concentration can determines iron stores in the body. Heart failure can be indicated by cardiac markers, such as troponin. This research was an analytical cross-sectional study conducted to

The Effect of Hospital Laundry Trolley Hydraulic System on Muscle Pain in Staff Based on Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire

Abstract : Muscle pain is the most common ergonomic complication due to the use of trolleys. Trolleys with a hydraulic system can reduce complaints of muscle pain experienced by hospital laundry staff. The study aimed to add a hydraulic system to the hospital laundry trolley to reduce complaints of muscle pain and to add hand hygiene facilities in the form of hand drubs, and glove containers to avoid cross-infection when transporting linen. The study was quantitative with a cross-sectional approach. The 7


Efficacy of dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine for the treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria in Southwest-Sumba, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia

Abstract : Malaria is one of the parasitic infectious diseases that is still a public health problem, including in Indonesia. Southwest Sumba District in NTT Province has been classified as a high endemic malaria area with dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine (DHP) as an antimalarial since 2004. One of the problems in malaria elimination has been the treatment failure due to plasmodium resistance to antimalarial drugs. This research was conducted in January-December 2019 in the North Kodi sub-district, Southwest
