Detection of ESBL Production and Antibiotic Sensitivity Pattern of Enterobacteriaceae Causing Urinary Tract Infection

Abstract : Despite the widespread availability of antibiotics, urinary tract infection (UTI) remains the most common bacterial infection in the human population. Current knowledge of the organisms that cause UTI and their antibiotic susceptibility pattern is mandatory to ensure appropriate therapy. Production of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) is an important mechanism of resistance in Enterobacteriaceae. Knowledge of their prevalence is essential to guide appropriate antibiotic therapy. Aim of the

Evaluation of distally based bipedicled flap for reconstructing post-burn finger nailfold and finger nail deformities

Abstract : One of common post-burn hand deformities is finger nailfold contracture and deformity. To evaluate the versatility of distally based bipedicled flap technique in correction of post-burn finger nailfold reconstruction. 24 fingers, of nine patients, with postburn finger nailfold deformity, submitted to reconstruction from January 2013 to June 2014, in Al Wasity hospital in Baghdad, using distally based bipedicled flap. A distally based bipedicled flap was designed over the dorsum of the distal pha

Occurrence of SARS-COV-2 Variants and Their Relationship to Disease Severity in a Sample of Iraqi Patients

Abstract : There are thousands of variations of the coronavirus virus, which affects the epidemic of this disease; therefore, monitoring these variables is necessary to understand the course of the epidemic and the impact of the type of variations on the severity of the disease. Coronavirus disease is a recent viral disease that has caused a modern global health pandemic since the influenza pandemic in 1918. The study was conducted by collecting nasal swabs of 100 patients with positive samples of COVID-19

Although considered as an STD, in rare cases, Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) can also be affect extragenital locations such as the rectum or anorectal. The increasing number of cases of anorectal gonorrhoea among men is likely due to the patient being bisexual or homosexuals. The presence of gonorrhoea at any site also increases the ri

Prevalence of refractive errors among Saudi population: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Abstract : Refractive errors are common globally with an estimated number of 2.3 billion people suffering from impaired vision secondary to uncorrected refractive errors. This study aimed to estimate a piece of proper evidence about the overall prevalenceof refractory errors within the kingdom. A process of collection of relevant key words was conducted followed by database search. All data were analyzed with R software version 4.0.2. Using a “meta” package. The event rate and the corresponding 95% con

Radiopacity of zinc oxide eucalyptus as a root canal filling material for primary teeth in comparison with zinc oxide eugenol

Abstract : To evaluate and compare the radiopacity of zinc oxide eucalyptus as compared with zinc oxide eugenol as root canal filling materials for deciduous teeth. Acrylic plate like an arch was constructed, each one was 5 mm thickness, 2.2 cm broad, and 4.5 cm long, with 8 holes of 1 mm internal diameter. One of the tested materials was inserted into each hole. Then projected to digital x-ray device and then the opacity was calculated by Photoshop©. 10 acrylic plates were made to have 40 samples of each

Maxillary Sinus-lift with Simultaneous Dental Implant Placement Split-mouth: A Comparative Study

Abstract : To compare PRF and PRF+BEGO-OSS® as bone augmentation materials in terms of bone level and bone quality. A split-mouth study on 12 patients to replace the missing upper first molar tooth. Twenty implants were inserted simultaneously with the sinus lift procedure. Augmentation was performed with PRF on one side, and PRF+ BEGO-OSS® on the other side. CBCT scans were taken for the included cases preoperatively and 4 months postoperatively. Both bone height and quality measurements were taken for

Comparative effects of aqueous extract of local Basil Seeds, vitamin C and selenium as Anti-heat Stress in some physiological traits at Iraqi Awassi Sheep

Abstract : This study was designed to determine the effect of using an aqueous extract of basil seeds, vitamin C, and selenium in some blood qualities of Iraqi Awassi sheep. Twenty Awassi sheep aged 9-10 months, with an average weight of 25.7 - 27.9 kg, were used in this study. An experiment has distributed into five groups, and each group included four ewes of homogeneous weights, with four repetitions in each group; then, the ewes were randomly divided into totals in the following form: T1 control treatm
