Effectiveness of Polyethylene Glycol 3350 versus Lactulose in Management of Functional Constipation in Children

Hanin Ahmed Mansour, MD, Ali Ibrahim and Ali Mohammad

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 09, 2022

Constipation is one of the common problems in childhood. Recently, Polyethylene Glycol (PEG 3350) has been suggested as a good alternative laxative to Lactulose as a treatment option in pediatric constipation. The current study aimed to compare the efficacy of two laxatives (PEG 3350 and Lactulose) in the management of functional constipation and evaluate the side effects. In an open-label clinical trial, 1-13 year-old children with functional constipation according to ROME IV criteria and the p...

Zuhal Aydan SAGLAM, Tayyibe SALER and Şennur KÖSE

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: March 12, 2022

Since no studies have been published on how active smoking affects switching to insulin therapy, we aimed to investigate the role of smoking on switching to insulin therapy in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. A total of 532 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients, who started insulin treatment due to the inability to achieve glycemic control with maximum oral anti-diabetic treatment, were included in the study. The patients were divided into three groups according to their smoking status at the beg...

Cardiovascular Collapse, Progressive Lactic Acidosis, Pulmonary Hypertension and Polyuria: Think Thiamine Deficiency!

Gul Sher, MBBS, Mona Nourani, DO, Kristen Beebe, PA-C, Peggy Fullenkamp Oomens, MS, RDN, CNSC, Megan Land, MD and Alexander Ngwube, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 13, 2022

Shock is a pathological condition characterized by imbalance between oxygen demand and supply. Irrespective of the cause, shock leads to a state of energy failure due to a decrease in adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, creation of lactic acidosis, and as a consequence, multiple organ dysfunction. Lactic acidosis is an ominous finding in critically ill patients. The severity and increased duration of lactic acidosis are associated with increased mortality. Lactic acidosis can result from hy...

Blue Laser Imaging and Magnification Endoscopy as a Tool for the Detection of Helicobacter pylori Infected Mucosa

Ulises Leal-Quiroga, MD, Abigail Sara Kane, MD, Eduardo Mendoza-Fuerte, MD, Omar David Borjas-Almaguer, MD, Eugenia Leal, MS and Rafael Castañeda-Sepúlveda, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: February 28, 2022

There are multiple diagnostic methods for the detection of H. pylori; however, because most are not cost-effective and have low sensibility and specificity, gastric biopsy remains the gold standard for diagnosis. H. pylori’s patchy distribution in the gastric mucosa requires multiple biopsy samples to accurately diagnose infection. This study’s objective is to identify the diagnostic value of using BLI-Bright with magnification endoscopy as a tool for guided biopsy sampling in patients with ...

Olakayode V Ekundina, Chiamaka C Ejelue, Ondokeyi P Apulu and Ore-oluwa O Ayodele

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: January 29, 2022

Monitoring and diagnosis of benign or premalignant breast lesions as it progresses to a malignant condition is very necessary for its ability to predict or curb the progression of a breast lesion to the malignant condition and Immunohistochemistry has been proven to be a useful tool in achieving this as immunohistochemical markers are corresponding and specific in nature. The primary objective of this case-control study is to study the expression of KI67, E-cadherin, and P53 in normal breast tis...

The Use of Virtual Surgical Planning for Management of Ameloblastoma: A Case Report

Akash Sivam, Yi Long Roy Ong, Ankit Garg and Paul Sillifant

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: February 16, 2022

Ameloblastoma is a rare progressively growing epithelial odontogenic neoplasm. Although benign, it can expand and invade surrounding structures, and to reoccur if not adequately removed. Current treatment is wide local excision with reconstruction. Traditional reconstructive options included autologous tissues, however, with the advent of virtual surgical planning and custom prosthesis surgeons can provide an increasingly precise functional and aesthetically pleasing reconstruction. The case pre...

Do the Neutrophil/Lymphocyte Ratio and the Platelet/ Lymphocyte Ratio Have an Effect on Birthweight, Gestational Age and Severity of Prematurity?

Ayca Nazli Bulut and Venhar Ceyhan, MD

Article Type: A Retrospective Study | First Published: February 19, 2022

There are studies in literature which have reported that the neutrophile to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is associated with gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, the severity of pre-eclampsia, premature prelabour rupture of membranes (PPROM) and hyperemesis gravidorum. There may also be an association with healthy pregnancies without any pathological conditions. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR) have an effect ...
