Cerebral Hemodynamics in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Uygar Utku and Muhammed Nur OGUN

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 15, 2018

A total of 22 patients aged 20 to 40-years-old with RA were enrolled in the RA group consecutively. Control group (non-RA group) consisted of 22 age and sex-matched, randomly selected patients without RA who had other diagnosis such as fibromyalgia and did not have risk factors for atherosclerosis (AS). Bilateral middle cerebral artery (MCA) peak-systolic, end-diastolic, and mean blood flow velocities, Pourcelot's resistance index values and Gosling's pulsatility index values were recorded with TCD by a neurosonologist blinded to RA and control groups....

Phenotypic and Genotypic Characteristics of Pseudomonas aeruginosa Causing Bloodstream Infection from Six Tertiary Hospitals in Beijing, China

Yanning Ma, Jie Liu, Chunmei Bao, Xiuhong Hao, Jingui Cao, Yan Wang and Jiyong Yang

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 14, 2018

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the most prevalent pathogens in China. However, little is known about the prevalence of clinical P. aeruginosa isolates causing bloodstream infections (BSIs) in China. BSI-causing P. aeruginosa (BSI-PA) was collected from six tertiary-care hospitals in Beijing. Genetic relatedness was analyzed by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE); Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed by agar dilution method, and sequence types (STs) were evaluated by multilocus sequence typing (MLST)....

Prevalence and Outcome of Hysterectomy at the Douala General Hospital, Cameroon: A Cross-Sectional Study

Thomas Obinchemti Egbe, Fidelia Mbi Kobenge, Metogo Mbengono Junette Arlette, Eta-Nkongho Egbe, Jacques Ernest Nyemb and Robinson Enow Mbu

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 14, 2018

We carried out a descriptive, hospital-based cross-sectional study during the period January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2015. Retrospectively, we studied medical records and theatre registers of women who underwent hysterectomy. Using pre-specified criteria for data collection, we administered a pre-tested questionnaire in which socio-demographic factors, clinical characteristics, indication, type, hospital stay, and complications of hysterectomy were recorded. Data management was with Epi-info and analyzed with STATA version 10 (Stata Corp, Texas, USA)....

Broken Glass: The Precarious Rectal Foreign Body

Blaker KM and Altintas Yasemin

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 14, 2018

Despite the increasing frequency of presentations for retained rectal foreign body, it remains a topic of intrigue, likely in part due to the taboo nature of the dilemma and also the ingenuity that is often required for successful extraction. Although the true incidence of retained rectal foreign body is unknown, there is data to suggest that the incidence is on the rise and has been reported to b...

Decreased Self Report Physical Activity One Year after an Acute Ankle Sprain

Tricia Hubbard-Turner, Michael J Turner, Chris Burcal, Kyeongtak Song and Erik A Wikstrom

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 14, 2018

One of the biggest public health issues present today is physical inactivity. Physical inactivity is currently classified as one of the three highest risk behaviors in the development of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Research consistently demonstrates the numerous physiological health and psychological well-being benefits with regular phys...

Asymptomatic Benign Pleural Plaque Due to Asbestos Exposure in Former TB Patient: A Case Report

Agus Dwi Susanto and Steven Jonathan

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 14, 2018

Asbestos fibres, inhaled and displaced by various means to lung tissue, may cause a spectrum of diseases from benign diseases to malignancies. Pleural plaques (PPs) are usually asymptomatic and cause slight impairment of lung function only when they are extended in size. The cause of pleural plaques is exposure to asbestos fibres, most commonly in an occupational setting. Relationships between the...

Unusual Treatment Response to Aflibercept, after Ranibizumab Treatment Failure, in Peripheral Exudative Haemorrhagic Retinopathy

Zeyad Al-Moasseb and Konstantinos Balaskas

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 14, 2018

The authors report 79-year-old women with PEHR who had persistent treatment resistance to Ranibizumab, with rapid improvements once switched to Aflibercept. Baseline visual acuity, subjective vision and measurements of anatomical disease were taken using macular optical coherence tomography, wide-field colour, fluorescein and indocyanine-green angiography images. Post-intravitreal injection respon...

Role of Caspase-11 Non-Canonical Inflammasome in Macrophage-Mediated Inflammatory Responses

Young-Su Yi

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: December 14, 2018

Inflammation is a complex biological response mediated by macrophages to protect the body from the pathogens and danger signals. The inflammatory response is initiated by priming, a process increasing the expression of inflammatory genes by extracellular pattern-recognition receptor (PRR)-mediated detection of pathogens, followed by triggering, a process detecting cytosolic pathogens by intracellu...

Herpes Zoster: An Atypical Cause of Foot Drop - Case Report and Review of the Literature

Coogan MK, Mobley T, Hagemeijer NC, Abbott B, Guss D, Johnson AH and DiGiovanni CW

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 14, 2018

We report on an 81-year-old female who presented with acute, atraumatic right foot drop four weeks after developing herpes zoster in the ipsilateral L4 and L5 dermatomes treated with valacyclovir. Lumbar MRI revealed no explanatory abnormality, and the etiology of her right foot drop was presumed to be due to an outbreak of herpes zoster. After three months of physical therapy and bracing, her right lower extremity weakness greatly improved. We present a comprehensive literature review of atraumatic foot drop pathooetiology, with a focus on herpes zoster as a potential causative agent....

Research Statistical Method Seemingly Non-Transferrable to Clinical Pathology Practice: A Case for D-Dimer Quantitative Testing

Ezekiel Uba Nwose, Phillip Taderera Bwititi and Ross Stuart Richards

Article Type: Brief Report | First Published: December 13, 2018

Plasma D-dimer data are often not normally distributed. In the research setting, such data is non-parametric and statistical analysis is often based on log-transformed data. In the clinical pathology, results are not transformed, but interpreted as it is. Plasma D-dimer data are often not normally distributed.
