Assessment of nutritional status of patients of congenital pouch colon following definitive surgery

Conclusions: On follow-up of the patients of CPC, anthropometry shows a high incidence of malnutrition, especially stunting in the 0-5 years age-group. There is an adequate adaptation of fluid-electrolyte homeostasis. Although Types I/II CPC patients have a significantly higher incidence of anemia and severe FI than Types III/IV CPC patients, long-term anthropometric parameters are similar. In Types I/II CPC, preservation of the colonic pouch by TC offers long-term benefit.

CONCLUSION: Ulcerative colitis presented a high frequency of intestinal symptoms, and Crohn ’ s disease showed a high frequency of systemic manifestations at the onset of manifestation. There was a long delay in diagnosis, but individuals with more extensive disease and more obvious symptoms showed a shorter delay.RESUMO CONTEXTO: O diagn óstico da doença inflamatória intestinal é frequentemente retardado pela falta de capacidade para reconhecer as suas principais manifestações clínicas. OBJETIVO: Nosso estudo teve como objetivo descrever as manifestações...

Authors: Tescher AN, Thompson SL, McCormack HE, Bearden BA, Christopherson MW, Mielke CL, Sievers BA Abstract Preventing, identifying, and treating deep tissue injury (DTI) remains a challenge. PURPOSE: The purpose of the current research was to describe the characteristics of DTIs and patient/care variables that may affect their development and outcomes at the time of hospital discharge. METHODS: A retrospective, descriptive, single-site cohort study of electronic medical records was conducted between October 1, 2010, and September 30, 2012, to identify common demographic, intrinsic (eg, mobility status, m...

Radiation proctitis is a late effect of pelvic radiotherapy. Which is used commonly to treat prostate cancer and female pelvic malignancy. It causes rectal bleeding, anaemia, diarrhoea and incontinence. Topical therapy with formaldehyde and argon plasma coagulation (APC) but is time consuming and formaldehyde can damage healthy tissue (Andreyev HJN et al 2015). Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) can be used to treat large areas of neovascularisation (Zhou et. al. 2009). We treated a large cohort with symptomatic rectal bleeding, many of whom bled severely causing anaemia and requiring admission for transfusion.

Abstract Uterine leiomyomata are the most common benign tumors of the gynecologic tract impacting up to 80% of women by 50 years of age. It is well established that these tumors are the leading cause for hysterectomy with an estimated total financial burden greater than $30 billion per year in the United States. However, for the woman who desires future fertility or is a poor surgical candidate, definitive management with hysterectomy is not an optimal management plan. Typical gynecologic symptoms of leiomyoma include infertility, abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB)/heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) and/or intermenstrual...

Discussion VATER association was first described in the 1970s with additional congenital malformations being added to the association so it is most often called VACTERL association. It is a highly heterogeneous, overlapping condition estimated to occur in ~1/10,000-40,000 births. The cause is unknown. In animal models, some signaling pathway gene mutations have phenotypes of VACTERL association. Experts suggest that patients having at least 2 components should be further evaluated (at least 3 for diagnosis) for VACTERL and other diseases in its differential diagnosis. There are more than 30 syndromes, mutations and diseas...

By KENNETH BARTHOLOMEW, MD My big brother Bill, may he rest in peace, taught me a valuable lesson four decades ago. We were gearing up for an extended Alaskan wilderness trip and were having trouble with a piece of equipment. When we finally rigged up a solution, I said “that was harder than it should have been” and he quipped in his wry monotone delivery, “There are no hard jobs, only the wrong tools.” That lesson has stuck in my mind all these years because, as simple as it seems, it carries a large truth. It rings of Archimedes when he was speaking about the simple tool known as the lever: &ldquo...

Conclusions:Pneumocephalus and pneumorrhachis are rare complications of epidural spinal anesthesia, which are absorbed spontaneously. This could be avoided with the use of saline instead of air as the medium for loss of resistance. While the most common complication of epidural anesthesia is a post-dural-puncture headache. Case history and pertinent imaging are discussed to bring awareness of this rare complication.Disclosure: Dr. Carter has nothing to disclose. Dr. Abu-Ata has nothing to disclose.
