Weightlifters are prone to musculoskeletal injury. However, studies on the prevalence and pattern of musculoskeletal injuries among weightlifters in Nigeria are not available. Therefore, this study investigated the prevalence and pattern of musculoskeletal injury among recreational weightlifters in Nnewi, Nigeria and explored the association between the prevalence of injury and sociodemographic, and training characteristic variables. Ninety-one recreational weightlifters participated in this cro...

Progressive Upper Compartment Functional Strength Training on Postural Muscle Force: In Volleyball Players

Yeliz Kahraman

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 27, 2021

Postural muscle force leads to a increase in functional movement and associated ability of strength. The author examined changes in shoulder and humerus strength, maximum isometric joint angular degree force after functional upper strength training in volleyball players. They evaluated isometric joint angular force degree as predictors of functional strength. Functional strength group increased significantly (p < 0.05) for all angular strength. Compared with controls, to functional strength led ...

Presence of a Hernia Sac Does Not Impact Lung Perfusion in CDH

Akila B Ramaraj, MD, Guy Jensen, MD, MPH, Bre Anna Kinghorn, MD, MS and Rebecca A Stark, MD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 30, 2021

There are variable long-term pulmonary outcomes of children with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Diagnostic modalities evaluating pulmonary function can be limited by patient compliance. Pulmonary perfusion scintigraphy is a diagnostic tool to evaluate lung development in younger children. Presence of a hernia sac is known to correlate with less severe disease but little has been reported on any correlation with lung size and function. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relatio...

Streptococcus Constellatus Empyema Presenting With Undulant Fever Pattern- A Case Report and Literature Review

Bistees George, BS, BA, Nouman Tanveer, DO and Michael Boyars, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 29, 2021

Streptococcus anginosus group (SAG), or milleri group streptococci (MGS), is an uncommon group of bacteria that has been increasingly affecting the adult population. It is an interesting organism in that it is intensely pyogenic when pathogenic-much in the same character as Staphylococcus aureus. SAG includes three species: Streptococcus anginosus, Streptococcus intermedius, and Streptococcus constellatus. Members of the SAG are usually part of the indigenous oral, gastrointestinal, and genitour...

A New CT Perfusion Analysis Algorithm without Deconvolution: FiTT

Hiroshi Iimura and Atsushi Senoo

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 30, 2021

We propose a new CT perfusion analysis algorithm without deconvolution: Theoretically calculating the time-enhancement curve (TEC) under various perfusion conditions, finding a theoretical TEC that best fits the observed TEC, and using the theoretical TEC’s perfusion parameters as the estimations for the observation point (FiTT). The FiTT analysis procedure was as follows: First, the TEC of the arterial input function (AIF) was fitted to the gamma distribution function. Next, we defined the re...

Multidisciplinary Approach to Management of a Large Cyst in the Mandible - A Case Report

Fatima Shoaib, Leena Al Salihi, Fatema Alsulaiti, Fadheela Haider, Nadia Ebrahim Al-Sikri, Mohammed Helal and Gowri Sivaramakrishnan

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 29, 2021

Most jaw cysts originate from odontogenic epithelium and they may be associated with vital or non-vital tooth. Cysts are classified into developmental, neoplastic and inflammatory. There is overall predominance in males, and the mandible is three times affected more than the maxilla. The aim of this case report is to describe a multidisciplinary conservative approach to manage mandibular cystic lesion confined lingually to the anterior region. The clinical, radiographic, and histopathological ex...

Assessment of the Usefulness of Red Cell Indices as a Screening Tool in Haemoglobin E Trait: A Cross Sectional Study

DMHMK Dassanayake, VCP Gunawardena and SB Athauda

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: September 29, 2021

HamoglobinE (HbE) is the second commonest structural haemoglobin variant and results from mutation in the β globin gene causing substitution of glutamic acid for lysine at position 26 of the β globin chain. When coinherited with β Thalassemia it becomes a major health burden. To assess the effectiveness of red cell parameters as a screening tool to identify haemoglobin E traits and to develop a score using red cell parameters which help to identify Haemoglobin E traits in population screening...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 30, 2021

Cappagh National Orthopaedic Hospital (CNOH) joint register is of huge value in assessing current outcomes of Charnley and Exeter Total Hip Replacements (THR) in Ireland. It is the chief orthopaedic elective hospital and as the Republic of Ireland has no published results from the National Joint Register yet; focusing on this register will help the Irish orthopaedic community by demonstrating which of the two devices has superior survivorship and patient reported outcomes. Joint register data fo...

The present study describes the case of a 39-year-old man who had acute retrosternal pain, history of upper tract infection and low-grade fever 3 days prior to presentation, elevated cardiac markers and electrocardiographic ST-T changes, which led to an original suspicion of acute myocarditis. The patient underwent coronary angiography after 36 hours to rule out coronary artery disease, which revealed normal coronary arteries. Finally, the diagnosis of viral myocarditis was confirmed on consider...
