Lactate dehydrogenase has had an exciting journey as a utility marker in different illnesses, but currently, its clinical utility has been relegated to confirm hemolysis, as a tumor marker, and as a diagnostic biomarker of preeclampsia. The findings of lactate dehydrogenase concentrations taking reference values to healthy persons are not consistent when these are related to hypertensive disorders in pregnancy, mainly to begin symptoms or little severity presentation. The goal in this work was to evaluate the maternal serum concentration of lactate dehydrogenase and its utility as a severity o...

The Effect on Disc Height and Sagittal Alignment in 56 Consecutive Patients Undergoing Lateral Access Surgery

Donald A Deinlein, Sakthivel Rajaram, Jorge L Perez and Mason B Frazier

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 06, 2019

The lateral approach to the spine, for spinal fusion, has gained interest from spine surgeons in recent years. The approach is less invasive, with less blood loss, decreased morbidity, and decreases length of stay in the hospital. The procedure has been shown to allow indirect decompression of the spinal canal and the intervertebral foramen. Segmental interbody arthrodesis may result in improved coronal and sagittal balance....

S Aissani, I Ararem, H Haouichat, ME Haffaf and A Zitouni

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 06, 2019

Premenstrual asthma (APM) is often confused by the patient and/or doctor with the symptoms of asthma in general. The purpose of our study is to investigate the clinical and spirometric characteristics of APM. Prospective descriptive study from 2011 to 2017, on 95 non-menopausal asthma patients, divided into 2 with and without APM. They benefited on a single menstrual cycle of spirometry during the follicular phase, luteal and premenstrual and cutaneous tests....

HIV and Hepatitis co-infection is common and contribute significantly to morbidity and mortality in persons living with HIV (PLWH). The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of this co-infection in patients receiving second-line antiretroviral therapy in Pointe-Noire and Brazzaville. A cross-sectional study was conducted between January and July 2014 to collect demographic data and perform blood sampling from consenting patients who came for routine visits in sites that provide comprehensive care for PLWH in Pointe-Noire....

Impact of Low-Dose Intracoronary Alteplase Infusion after Successful Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Ismail Mohamed Ibrahim, Ahmed S Eldamanhory, Mahmoud Abdelaziz and Abdelrashid Abdelaziz

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 05, 2019

In ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), intracoronary thrombolysis after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) was found to improve microvascular perfusion, yet without improvement in left ventricular (LV) remodeling. Our study aimed to find out possible effect on LV longitudinal function. 102 anterior STEMI patients eligible for PPCI were divided into: Alteplase group (53 patients; received intracoronary 0.3 mg/kg alteplase after PPCI) and control group (49 patients; treated with PPCI only). LV longitudinal function was assessed using tissue Doppler imaging (to measure mean...

Pressure Pain Threshold in Depression: Is There a Difference between Unipolar and Bipolar Depressed Patients?

Ozlem Kazan Kizilkurt, Buket Niflioglu, Fusun Mayda Domac and Sermin Kesebir

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: June 06, 2019

complex relationship exists between mood and pain, which is supported by different pain tolerance in clinically depressed patients compared to healthy people. In the present study we aimed to investigate pressure pain threshold (PPT) in unipolar and bipolar depressed patients and assess any differences between these two diagnoses. This study included 40 patients diagnosed with unipolar depression and 89 patients diagnosed with bipolar depression according to DSM-IV criteria, also 40 healthy, age and gender-matched subjects without any known disease that could affect pain threshold were include...

The Outcome of Undisplaced Femoral Neck Fracture in Elderly

Adnan A Faraj, FRCS, Parvez Hussain, MRCS and Karthika Velusamy, MBBS

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: June 06, 2019

The management of Garden type 1 and 2 undisplaced proximal femoral intracapsular fracture in elderly patients is controversial. Many options including arthroplasty and fixation have been suggested based on patient's age and cognitive function. We have retrospectively reviewed 85 elderly patients with undisplaced femoral neck fracture. The mean age of the cohort was 81 years. 52 patients were treated with cemented hemi-arthroplasty, 19 with dynamic hip screw fixation, 10 had cannulated screw fixation, total hip replacement in 3, and conservative management for one patient. We reviewed the cohor...

Impact of the Number of Dissected Axillary Lymph Nodes on Survival in Breast Cancer Patients

Emad Eldin Nabil, Ahmed M Maklad, Ashraf Elyamany, Emad Gomaa and Moamen M Ali

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: June 05, 2019

For patients with breast cancer, axillary dissection was a standard treatment, especially with patient with positive metastases in the sentinel nodes. For some patients axillary dissection might be over-treatment, including those who have had a mastectomy. Especially with the new trend of many radiation-therapy centers, provide radiation-therapy for any number of positive lymph nodes. The aim of our work is to evaluate the impact of number of dissected axillary Lymph Nodes (LN), on Overall Survival (OS) and Progression Free Survival (PFS) in breast cancer patients....

Pneumococcal Sepsis as a Cause of Massive Splenic Infarction in Patient with Unknown Celiac Disease

Alessandro Graziani, Federica Mirici Cappa, Erica Fiorini, Pierpaolo Casalini and Francesco Albertini

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: June 06, 2019

Splenic Infarction (SI) is a rare event that occurs when the Splenic Artery (SA) or its branches become occluded by embolus or by in situ thrombosis. Most SI events are a result of embolic sources either cardiac or aortic. However malignant hematological disorders and autoimmune diseases are the predominant causes of splenic thrombosis. Massive Splenic Infarction (MSI) results from compromised blood flow to more than half of the spleen. In this paper we describe a case of a previously healthy patient who presented with pneumococcal sepsis who upon investigation revealed an unknown celiac disea...

Article Type: Pilot Study | First Published: June 06, 2019

Systems thinking is a core competency in nursing education. The assessment of knowledge, awareness and value of, and self-efficacy for teaching systems thinking among faculty is an important step to plan faculty development process. A 17-item faculty questionnaire was developed to assess the knowledge, awareness and value of, and self-efficacy for teaching systems thinking to nursing students as a part of a pilot study. The questionnaire was administered to the nursing faculty at a nursing school in the Midwest region (response rate: 19.49%; 20/92)....
