What is the Remission Rate for Antithyroid Drug Treatment for Hyperthyroidism in Children?

Patient Presentation A 12-year-old female came to clinic for her health maintenance examination. She had no complaints and her mother had no concerns until her daughter was weighed and there was a slower increase in her weight over the year. The patient had normal eating and activity and they denied weight loss. She was sleeping well without night sweats, had normal elimination and was doing well in school. She had a history of being a more anxious child but this was unchanged. The family also denied any skin or hair changes. The past medical history was negative except for some normal acute illnesses. The family history was positive for diabetes, stroke and arthritis. The review of systems was otherwise normal. The pertinent physical exam showed a well-appearing Asian female with a heart rate of 108 beats/minute, blood pressure of 106/56, respiratory rate of 20 and she was afebrile. Her height was 90% and tracking normally. Her weight had always been at the 95% and was now at the 90%. HEENT revealed very subtle proptosis with the eyelids still covering part of the irises. Her thyroid was diffusely enlarged without palpable nodes and there was no murmur over the organ. She had some shoddy anterior cervical adenopathy. Heart was mildly tachycardic without a murmur. She had normal skin without hair loss or increased perspiration. Neurological examination found a mild tremor of her hands when they were outstretched and she seemed somewhat anxious to the examiner. She also had m...

Authors: Bergland OU, Søraas CL, Larstorp ACK, Halvorsen LV, Hjørnholm U, Hoffman P, Høieggen A, Fadl Elmula FEM Abstract PURPOSE: The blood pressure (BP) lowering effect of renal sympathetic denervation (RDN) in treatment-resistant hypertension shows variation amongst the existing randomised studies. The long-term efficacy and safety of RDN require further investigation. For the first time, we report BP changes and safety up to 7 years after RDN, compared to drug adjustment in the randomised Oslo RDN study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with treatment-resistant hypertension, defined...

Authors: Zhang W, Xu JZ, Lu XH, Li H, Wang D, Wang JG Abstract PURPOSE: We hypothesise that dietary sodium intake interacts with serum uric acid to influence blood pressure (BP) in children and adolescents. In the present study, we investigated ambulatory BP in relation to hyperuricaemia, dietary sodium intake and their interaction in children and adolescents with hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  A total of 616 study participants were 10-24 years old and had primary hypertension diagnosed after admission in a specialised inpatient ward. Ambulatory BP monitoring was performed during hospitalisat...

Authors: Sabet Sarvestani F, Azarpira N Abstract Heart and cerebral infarctions, as two important ischemic diseases, lead to the death of tissues due to inadequate blood supply and high mortality worldwide. These statuses are started via blockage of vessels and depletion of oxygen and nutrients which affected these areas. After reperfusion and restoration of oxygen supply, more severe injury was mediated by multifaceted cascades of inflammation and oxidative stress. microRNAs (miRNAs) as the regulator of biological and pathological pathways can adjust these conditions by interaction with their targets. Also, miRNAs...

Conclusions: This review results revealed a low utilization of postnatal care service. Antenatal care service utilization has a positive effect on postnatal care service utilization. Policymakers and programmers better considered more antenatal care service use as one strategy of enhancing the utilization of postnatal care service. PMID: 33029402 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Debelew GT Abstract Despite several efforts globally, the problem of perinatal mortality remained an unsolved agenda. As a result, it continued to be an essential part of the third sustainable development goals to end preventable child deaths by 2030. With a rate of 33 per 1000 births, Ethiopia has the highest level of perinatal mortality in the world. Thus, determining the magnitude and identifying the determinants are very crucial for evidence-based interventions. A community-based longitudinal study was conducted in Southwest Ethiopia among 3474 pregnant women to estimate the magnitude of perinatal mort...

This study was aimed at assessing the magnitude of induced abortion and associated factors among students in Hawassa University, southern region, Ethiopia, 2019. Methods: An institutional-based cross-sectional study was conducted among a total of 422 students selected on the bases of a probability simple random sampling method. A pretested structured questionnaire was used to collect data. Analysis was made with SPSS 20. Descriptive summary and inferential statistics (binary logistic regression) were used with a 95% CI and P value of less than 5% as a level of significance. Findings were presented in tables, figure, an...
