Tension Free Vaginal Tape Erosion into the Urinary Bladder: A Case Report

Priyanka Singh and Han How Chuan

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 28, 2017

The Tension-free Vaginal Tape (TVT) is the most commonly performed procedure for the management of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). There is insufficient data on the occurrence of complications and their management. The incidence of tape erosion and infection is observed to be higher with synthetic non-absorbable slings....

Corticosterone Response in Sleep Deprivation and Sleep Fragmentation

Yonglin Gao, Brandon Akers, Michael B Roberts and Rif S El-Mallakh

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 23, 2017

Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep deprivation is understood to be associated with more severe negative effects than REM fragmentation. Comparison of the corticosterone response between these patterns of sleep disruption has not been well characterized. Black Swiss mice were exposed to 1-day and 3-day periods of REM deprivation with inverted flower-pot method or REM fragmentation using the moving bar ...

Cricoid Pressure during Rapid Sequence Induction - Time to Let Go and Grab the Ultrasound?

RA Fearnley, S Badiger, CA Oti and I Ahmad

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 20, 2018

Accurate localisation of the cricoid cartilage is a key step in the successful application of cricoid pressure during rapid sequence induction. Poorly localised pressure is unlikely to confer any protective benefit to our patients and may have deleterious effects on laryngoscopy. We postulated that the use of ultrasound would greatly improve the accuracy of cricoid cartilage localisation prior to ...

A Retrospective Study of Catheter-Related Thrombosis Using the Central Vein Catheters for the Ulcerative Colitis Patients

Shinichiro Koketsu, Shinichi Sameshima, Takashi Okuyama, Hiroshi Shigematsu and Masatoshi Oya

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 22, 2018

Leukocyte apheresis is a therapeutic option for moderate-to-severe active ulcerative colitis in Japan. It causes fewer complications, however, leukocyte apheresis requires the use of a relatively large caliber of peripheral venous line for hemodialysis. We reluctantly used a large caliber catheter with a double-lumen into the central vein. Catheter-related thrombosis and infection cases were occas...

Association of Helicobacter Pylori Infection and Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 Subjects in Yaounde Cameroon Using a Panel of Serum Biomarkers (PGII, HpIgG): A Case Control Study

Ebule IA, Djune FAK, Njeambosay BA, Doh GN, Metaghue G, Majuikouo L, Befolo MHDM, Nkayo M, Tanni B, Heugueu C, FEUATSAPK C, Noah ND, Paloheimo L and Syrjanen K

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 30, 2017

Infection to Helicobacter pylori has been associated to many gastrointestinal diseases including gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease, atrophic gastritis and gastric cancer. Chronic infections are frequent and severe in patients with diabetes mellitus (DMT2), probably due to the impairment of their immune status. The link between H. pylori infection and diabetes mellitu...

Atrophic Gastritis and Gastric Cancer Risk amongst Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 Subjects and Controls in Yaounde Cameroon Using a Panel of Serum Biomarkers (PGI, G-17)

Ebule IA, Djune FAK, Njeambosay BA, Doh G N, Befolo MHDM, Nkayo M, Metaghue G, Majuikouo L, Tanni B, Heugueu C, FEUATSAPK C, Noah ND, Paloheimo L and Syrjanen K

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 30, 2017

Gastric inflammation is a precursor to many gastrointestinal disorders including, peptic ulcer disease, atrophic gastritis and gastric cancer. Gastritis is frequent and usually severe in patients with diabetes mellitus (DMT2), probably due to the impairment of their immune status. Atrophic gastritis is usually accompanied by low hydrochloric acid, low pepsinogens and hypergastrinemia and is the most significant risk condition for gastric cancer....
