Seton in high anal fistula

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe use of seton still remains a reasonably valid option for its simplicity and optimal results in treating high anal fistulae. Ours was a single-centre retrospective study on patients with supra-sphincteric and transsphincteric types of high anal fistula, using the 'kharsutra' as seton. The first group were treated with a seton alone, while the second with a seton and partial fistulotomy. Results were similar and quite acceptable in both groups.PMID:34482783 | DOI:10.1177/00494755211042122 (Source: Tropical Doctor)

Smear and culture conversion of sputum samples at the end of intensive phase of anti-tubercular treatment were recorded. Baseline serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein estimation was done by ELISA. Mean high-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels at baseline, s...

Trauma surgery via distance mentoring: A model inspired by the 2020 pandemic
Trop Doct. 2021 Sep 2:494755211038790. doi: 10.1177/00494755211038790. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTWhen the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded in March 2020, surgical care was impacted globally. The developing nations in the Caribbean were unprepared with fragile, resource poor healthcare systems. A series of rapid policy changes in response to the pandemic radically changed surgical care and prevented the usual oversight in the operating theatre. Attending surgeons responded utilising readily available technology for distance mentoring. Using this model, postgraduate surgical residents were able to complete 96% of trauma laparo...

Our retrospective review of 105 pleural empyema culture and sensitivity reports aimed at determining the causative microorganisms and their antimicrobial resistance pattern. Of 105 pleural aspirate samples, 46 (43.8%) were positive on culture. Gram-negative organisms (n = 43) were the predominant isolates, the commonest of which was Klebsiella pneumoniae. It was concluded ...

We report a case of congenital syphilis characterised by delayed diagnosis with renal as well as cutaneous manifestations from missed maternal syphilis during the antenatal period and owing to the lack of antenatal screening.PMID:34459298 | DOI:10.1177/00494755211041297 (Source: Tropical Doctor)

Microbiological profile and antibiotic resistance pattern of empyema thoracis in Calabar, Nigeria
Trop Doct. 2021 Aug 29:494755211032844. doi: 10.1177/00494755211032844. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTTargeted empirical antibiotic therapy based on local microbiology and antibiotic resistance patterns is essential for the treatment of empyema thoracis. Our retrospective review of 105 pleural empyema culture and sensitivity reports aimed at determining the causative microorganisms and their antimicrobial resistance pattern. Of 105 pleural aspirate samples, 46 (43.8%) were positive on culture. Gram-negative organisms (n = 43) were the predominant isolates, the commonest of which was Klebsiella pneumoniae. It was concluded ...

A rare case of abdominal cocoon caused by brucellosis
We present a case of abdominal cocoon in a young patient residing at a dairy farm who tested positive for Brucella serology. Timely diagnosis and management prevented the progression of this debilitating condition to intestinal obstruction.PMID:34435911 | DOI:10.1177/00494755211040333 (Source: Tropical Doctor)

Clinical yield of screening colonoscopies in Jamaica

We sought to evaluate the detection of colorectal cancer precursor lesions in patients who underwent opportunistic screening over three years. Patients with colorectal polyps were selected for further study. In 431 procedures, there were 84 (19.5%) patients with colorectal polyps identified at screening colonoscopy, which gave a 19.5% sensitivity to identify patients with polyps at risk of developing colorectal cancer, 9.5% being

Diverse liver morphology in two cases of visceral leishmaniasis: Same face, different expressions

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTTwo cases of visceral leishmaniasis are presented; one patient was from an endemic region and visceral leishmaniasis was suspected clinically, while the other was from a non-endemic region and it was not suspected clinically. Bone marrow examination was negative in both cases and both showed different morphological pictures in the liver biopsies. These are discussed. Importance of travel history is also highlighted even if it is in distant past.PMID:34427134 | DOI:10.1177/00494755211038129 (Source: Tropical Doctor)
