The Effect of Injecting Botulinum Toxin on Improving the Maximum Mouth Opening in Patients with Muscular Temporomandibular disorders

Abstract : Muscular temporomandibular disorders are a common pain problem that requires treatment because of its symptoms of pain, poor function, and limited mouth opening in a way that affects the individual’s daily activity. Botox is mainly used to treat muscular temporomandibular joint disorders and hyperactivity of the masseter muscles. The aim of the study was to improve the maximum mouth opening in patients with muscular TMD using EMG-guided Botox injection into the masseter and lateral pterygoid m


The prognostic value of serum uric acid in critically ill Covid-19 patients

Abstract : The severity of infection with Covid-19 ranging from asymptomatic infection to a serious infection that requires mechanical ventilation. This discrepancy underscores the need for new biomarkers related to the course and progression of the disease. Our aim in our article was to evaluate the effect of serum uric acid, which is an easily available, low-cost, and reliable marker on the severity of Covid-19, and the possibility of using it as a warning indicator and a useful indicator in the follow-u


Effectiveness of Moringa Honey on Viability of gut Bifidobacterium sp., Lactobacillus sp., Clostridium sp., and Escherichia coli in Anemia Pregnant Women: A randomized controlled trial

Abstract : Anemia is a common condition during pregnancy that is characterized by low levels of hemoglobin, which can have negative effects on both the mother and the baby. Previous studies have shown that iron supplementation can improve hemoglobin levels, but in this study wanted to evaluate the effect on the viability of gut Bifidobacterium sp., Lactobacillus sp., Clostridium sp., and Escherichia coli in anemia pregnant women from Moringa honey. This randomized controlled trial (RCT) involved pregnant a


Atypical Prostatic Stromal Sarcoma Presented With T2WI Central Heterogeneous Hyperintense Lesion Showing Peripheral Zone & Peri Prostatic Fat Invasion :a case report.

Abstract : We present a case of neglected atypical high grade prostatic stromal sarcoma (PSS) at the transitional zone, invading the peripheral zone, prostatic capsule & peri prostatic fat reaching to pelvic side wall, it showed T2WI hyperintense signal (compared to typical cases of PSS showing T2WI hypointense signal) corresponding to developing on top of pre-existing nodular hyperplasia. Careful reviewing of prostatic central / transitional zone lesions is mandatory especially at T2WI, diffusion & contra


A Histological and Radiographical Comparison Between Split-bone block and Cortico-Cancellous Block Graft Utilized for Horizontal Ridge Augmentation

Abstract : This randomized clinical trial evaluated the histological and radiographical characteristics of bone regeneration after horizontal alveolar ridge augmentation using two different surgical approaches. The study randomized 20 patients into two groups: split-bone block group and cortico-cancellous bone block group. The grafts were obtained from the mandibular symphysis in both groups. Radiographic bone density of the augmented sites was measured by CBCT scans at baseline and 6 months post-operative


A Comparison Between Split-Block Graft and Cortico-cancellous Block Graft for Horizontal Ridge Augmentation: A Randomized Clinical Trail

Abstract : The alveolar ridge undergoes both horizontal and vertical resorption following tooth extraction, accompanied by alterations in the structure and composition of the overlying soft tissues. These changes compromise the optimal three-dimensional implant placement and necessitate bone augmentation procedures in such scenarios. The aim of this study was to compare the dimensional changes after horizontal alveolar ridge augmentation for the anterior maxilla, using split-block bone graft and cortico-ca


Updates on outcomes of Elderly icu patient to icu for sepsis

Abstract : There are more elderly people being admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) due to an increase in the prevalence of severe sepsis and septic shock. Sepsis is more likely to affect the elderly due to co-morbid conditions, frequent and lengthy hospital stays, lowered immunity, functional limitations, and, most importantly, the effects of ageing itself. This systematic review aims to study the recent updates regarding the outcomes of elderly patients admitted to the ICU for sepsis. PubMed, SCOPUS,


Promotion of Dental and Oral Health Through The Gigiku Sehat Application and Healthy Dental Gymnastics With Teacher Assistance on Teeth Cleaning Behavior in Children Aged 10-13 Years

Abstract : Caries is one of the oral diseases that is often experienced by children around the world by 60%-90%, especially in low socioeconomic groups. The causes of caries are multifactorial, including socioeconomic level, age, gender, diet and oral hygiene. Sucrose or sugar commonly consumed is an important factor causing caries. Elementary school children are an age group that is very vulnerable to caries because they have poor behavior in maintaining oral and dental health. Aim: Knowing the effect of


Analysis of E-Patient Development Needs Using Smartphones in Internal Medicine and Surgical Clinics in The Regional General Hospital of West Sulawesi Province

Abstract : Indonesia falls into the category of developing countries with healthcare inequalities. One of the main factors is the limitation of human resources for health, infrastructure facilities, and medical devices. This study aims to identify the needs of e-patients in internal medicine and surgical clinics at the Regional General Hospital of West Sulawesi Province. The research uses the qualitative method. Data were collected through in-depth interviews and focus group discussions. All interview was


Do Hospital Directors Have the Person-Focused Meta-Leadership Capabilities during Crisis? Selected Cases in South Sulawesi Province Indonesia Hospitals

Abstract : Dynamic, uncertain, and ambiguous environments currently influence organizations worldwide, including the hospital industry. Hospital problems, both internal and external disruptions, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, have affected hospital performance. In line with those conditions, excellent meta-leaders beyond clinical entities are urgently needed. Meta leadership has important implications for individual, team, and organizational performance. There are three dimensions of meta-leadership (the p
