Medial compartment osteoarthritis with a large subchondral geode of medial femoral condyle treated with unicondylar knee arthroplasty: a case report
Osteoarthritis (OA) with a large subchondral geode of medial fem oral condylar is not common. The treatment options of this lesion vary according to the location of the cyst and the severity of osteo arthritis, with less invasive procedures such as calcium phosphate cement injection to a joint arthroplasty.
Relationship between blood ammonia and plasma free amino acids concentration in adult-onset citrullinemia type 2: A case report
1.1. Aim: Elevated plasma citrulline (Cit) concentration is a char acteristic finding in adult-onset type II citrullinemia (CTLN2). However, the plasma free amino acids (PFAA) profile associated with ammonia detoxification has not been fully analyzed.
Pulmonary mucormycosis, a relatively rare fungal lung disease, is difficult to diagnose. It is increasingly reported immuno-com promised patients that inhale fungal spores in the air or paranasal sinus, resulting in pulmonary mucormycosis.
Dear Editor, we have found that the presence of Streptococcus mutans in the oral cavity of a pregnant woman may be a risk factor for miscar riage. We observed that Streptococcus mutans is significantly more widespread in the oral cavity of women with threatened abortion than in those undergoing a healthy pregnancy.
1.1. Introduction: The conceptualization of the inherent relation ship between man and nature is called biophilia which refers to the belief that humans are genetically predisposed to be attracted to nature. Science has strengthened the hypothesis contributing to its expansion in various fields such as medicine and psychotherapeu tic interventions
Walking rehabilitation using Hybrid Assistive Limb and C-Brace for an individual with chronic incomplete spinal cord injury: a case report
Many individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) hope to restore walking function irrespective of their impairment. We present a case with chronic incomplete cervical SCI who could regain com munity ambulation by gait training with hybrid assistive limb (HAL), followed by fitting and training of microprocessor-con trolled knee ankle foot orthosis (C-Brace). The walking and bal ance ability continuously improved in the course of rehabilitation.
GeneXpert MTB/RIF: A Useful Tool for Rapid and Accurate Diagnosis of Tuberculosis and Rifampicin Resistance
The primary objective of this study was to show the usefulness and importance of GeneXpert MTB/RIF, a rapid test that simultane ously detects Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) and resistance to rifampicin (RIF) in less than 2 hours.
Association between Galectin-3 and oxidative stress parameters with coronary artery disease in Tunisian population
1.1. Background: Galectin-3 (Gal-3), as a mediator of inflamma tion and fibrosis, has been reported to be a biomarker of severity in coronary artery disease (CAD). The study aimed to assess the rela tionships between coronary artery disease (CAD) and risk factors, including parameters of oxidative stress in Tunisian patients CAD.
The prevalence of obesity has steadily increased in response to changes in diet and physical activity patterns over the past 10 years, becoming one of the leading causes of morbidity and mor tality worldwide. In addition, the popularity of social networks has increased social and cultural pressure for the search for the “perfect body”.
The Role of Genetic Mutations in Genes RUNX1, RUNX1T1, CBFB & MYH11 on Core Binding Factor Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Acute myeloid leukemia (CBF-AML) is one of the causes of he matopoietic tissue (bone marrow) called acute myeloid leukemia. In normal bone marrow, early blood cells called hematopoietic stem cells develop into several types of blood cells: white blood cells (leukocytes) that protect the body against infection, red blood cells (erythrocytes) ) that carry oxygen and platelets (thrombo cytes) play a role in blood coagulation, in acute myeloid leukemia, the bone marrow produces a large number of abnormal and im mature white blood cells called myeloid blasts.
