Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in adults: experience from the Middle East. - Asian cardiovascular & thoracic annals
The literature reports conflicting results for survival after extracorporeal membrane oxygenator support, and survival differs in pediatric and adult patients. We present our institutional experience of adult extracorporeal membrane oxygenator support.From January 2007 to December 2009, 19 adult patients required extracorporeal membrane oxygenator support after cardiac surgery or catheter interventions. It was provided on an emergency basis to 11 patients, urgently to 5, and electively to 3. Indications included post-cardiotomy cardiogenic shock, post-cardiotomy acute respiratory failure, emergency cardiac resuscitation, and post-percutaneous coronary intervention cardiogenic shock. The mean duration of support was 4 days (range, 1-11 days).Seven (36.84%) patients could be weaned off extracorporeal membrane oxygenator support; one (14.28%) of them survived to hospital discharge and the other 6 (85.71%) died in hospital. Twelve (63.15%) patients could not be weaned off and died while still on extracorporeal membrane oxygenator support. Overall 30-day hospital mortality was 94.73%, and survival to discharge was 5.26%.Our institutional experience of extracorporeal membrane oxygenator support for cardiac indications in adult patients indicates poor survival. It significantly increased costs by delaying imminent death and prolonging stay in the intensive care unit.
An alternative approach to explantation and exchange of the HeartWare left ventricular assist device. - European journal of cardio-thoracic surgery : official journal of the European Association for Cardio-thoracic Surgery
Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) explantation and exchange is a relatively infrequent but potentially complex procedure. Patients requiring such procedures have multisystem suboptimal physiological reserve due to end-stage heart failure and are prone to complications. Less-invasive procedures are believed to facilitate postoperative recovery and early mobilization. We describe an alternative approach to explantation and exchange of the HeartWare LVAD through left thoracotomy.Six patients (M = 4, F = 2, mean age = 49.16 years) underwent device explant/exchange or initial implant (explant = 2, exchange = 3, initial implant = 1) through left thoracotomy utilizing cardiopulmonary bypass and induced ventricular fibrillation (VF). The mean bypass time and mean VF arrest time were 82 and 3 min, respectively. A new outflow graft was anastomosed to the previous outflow graft in 3 cases of device exchange and to the descending aorta in 1 case of initial implant.One patient died in the intensive care unit due to unrelated causes (gram-negative sepsis) after device exchange. All others were discharged alive and currently remain on follow-up. The mean length of hospital stay was 40.66 days.On-pump approach through single thoracotomy incision is safe and equally suitable for device explant, exchange and initial implant. However, structural heart defects requiring surgical correction and the requirement of simultaneous right ventricular assist device are the limitations of this approach.
Seminal volume in the investigation of male infertility. - Journal of the College of Physicians and Surgeons--Pakistan : JCPSP
To determine the seminal volume among infertile males and the frequency distribution of hypospermic and hyperspermic patients in infertile males.Cross-sectional observational study.Department of Reproductive Physiology/Health, Public Health Laboratories Division, National Institute of Health, Islamabad, from 2002 to 2009.Semen examinations of infertile male were carried out according to the standardized method of the World Health Organization. Seminal volume of 2-6 ml were considered normal, while volumes less than 2 ml and higher than 6 ml were considered hypospermic and hyperspermic respectively.Out of 1521 patients, 355 were hypospermic (23.34%), 1046 were normospermic (68.78%) while 120 were hyperspermic (7.88%). In the hypospermic cases, 57 out of 355 (16.05%) had a volume of less than 1 ml. Of those 57 patients, 34 were found to be azoospermic, 12 were asthenozoospermic, one each were terato- and polyzoospermic, while 6 had normal counts. Among the hyperspermic patients (n=120), 3 were azoospermic, 24 were oligozoospermic and 19 cases (15.84%) had count within the normal range, while 1 patient was polyzoospermic. Significant differences (p < 0.05) were observed among azoospermic, oligoasthenozoospermic and teratozoospermic groups when comparing hypo and hyperspermic patients.Seminal volume is an important parameter for assessment of infertility investigation and its abnormalities constitute a valuable index of problems with the male partner, even if the count and motility are well within the acceptable limits.
In vitro and in vivo aggregation of a fragment of huntingtin protein directly causes free radical production. - The Journal of biological chemistry
Neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by intra- and/or extracellular protein aggregation and oxidative stress. Intense attention has been paid to whether protein aggregation itself contributes to abnormal production of free radicals and ensuing cellular oxidative damage. Although this question has been investigated in the context of extracellular protein aggregation, it remains unclear whether protein aggregation inside cells alters the redox homeostasis. To address this, we have used in vitro and in vivo (cellular) models of Huntington disease, one of nine polyglutamine (poly(Q)) disorders, and examined the causal relationship among intracellular protein aggregation, reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, and toxicity. Live imaging of cells expressing a fragment of huntingtin (httExon1) with a poly(Q) expansion shows increased ROS production preceding cell death. ROS production is poly(Q) length-dependent and not due to the httExon 1 flanking sequence. Aggregation inhibition by the MW7 intrabody and Pgl-135 treatment abolishes ROS production, showing that increased ROS is caused by poly(Q) aggregation itself. To examine this hypothesis further, we determined whether aggregation of poly(Q) peptides in vitro generated free radicals. Monitoring poly(Q) protein aggregation using atomic force microscopy and hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) production over time in parallel we show that oligomerization of httEx1Q53 results in early generation of H(2)O(2). Inhibition of poly(Q) oligomerization by the single chain antibody MW7 abrogates H(2)O(2) formation. These results demonstrate that intracellular protein aggregation directly causes free radical production, and targeting potentially toxic poly(Q) oligomers may constitute a therapeutic target to counteract oxidative stress in poly(Q) diseases.
Assessment of the level of trace element zinc in seminal plasma of males and evaluation of its role in male infertility. - International journal of applied & basic medical research
Male infertility is a serious problem all over the world. Nutritional deficiency of trace element Zinc (Zn) may play a role in male infertility as Zn plays an important role not only in normal testicular development, but also in spermatogenesis and sperm motility. Deficiency of Zn is associated with hypogonadism and insufficient development of secondary sex characteristics.The present study was designed to analyze the level of seminal Zn among different groups of infertile patients and to correlate it with sperm concentration, active, sluggish and immotile fractions of seminal parameters, with an objective to establish the role of Zn in male infertility.The present study was carried out in five- years period from 2004 to 2009. It was a descriptive analytical study with non probability sampling.Semen examination of the patients was carried out according to the standardized method of the World Health Organization. Semen Zn was estimated by color 5 Br. PAPS method.All statistical analyses were performed by using SPSS (Version 14.0 for windows) software, by applying student's t-test.The result showed that seminal Zn was 702.92Â±10.60, 598.48Â±12.95, 617.54Â±9.55, 542.29Â±22.75, 710.36Â±7.87, 712.06Â±7.96, 789.36Â±21.33, and 762.06Â±8.99 mg/dl in azoospermic, oligozoospermic, asthenozoospermic, oligoasthenozoospermic, teratozoospermic, normozoospermic, polyzoospermic, and proven fathers group, respectively.Decreased concentration of seminal Zn do affect the sperm count, while increased level of seminal plasma Zn causes decreased sperm motility; so, it is suggested that administration of Zn should be very carefully monitored in such patients having low sperm count but normal sperm motility, as adequate seminal Zn is required for normal sperm function.
Pattern of carcinoma of oral cavity reporting at dental department of Ayub medical college. - Journal of Ayub Medical College, Abbottabad : JAMC
Carcinoma of oral cavity is amongst the first ten commonest malignancies in Pakistan. Districts of Hazara (NWFP) and Northern Areas of Pakistan are among the high risk. areas. Here we present a report of oral cancers received in this center over a period of 10 years. METHODDS: This clinicopathological study consists of cases of carcinoma of oral cavity presenting to dentistry department of Ayub Medical College Abbottabad during 1993-2003. All cases were clinically examined and provisionally diagnosed. Biopsy was taken from all the lesions and the tissues submitted to histopathology department of Ayub Medical College.There were 50 carcinoma cases in the study, including 30 (60%) males and 20 (40%) females. Among these, 47 (94%,) were diagnosed as squamous cell carcinomas, that consisted 30 (63.82 %) males and 17 (36.17%) females. The other 6 % lesions were histologically diagnosed as malignant melanoma, adenocarcinoma and acinar cell carcinoma. The age of squamous cell carcinoma cases was 41-71 years. The maximum number of squamous cell carcinomas (34%) effected buccal mucosa. The other common sites were lip (26%), tongue (21%) and gums (19%).The results of this study are comparable with other such studies done in Pakistan and else where in the world showing commonality of factors associated with the development of the disease in this region of the country, which necessitates a detailed prospective study.
