Abstract

Background: Inferior myocardial infarction (MI) with right ventricular (RV) involvement will increase mortality and morbidity. Data of systolic and diastolic RV function in inferior ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI) are useful to predict the RV involvement.  Aims: To evaluate the prognostic and diagnostic significance of RV systolic and diastolic function compared to RVMI diagnostic criteria by electrocardiography in inferior MI patients.Methods: Consecutive patients with first, acute, inferior STEMI were prospectively assessed. The RVMI was defined as an ST-segment elevation ≥ 0.1 mV in lead V4R. Echocardiography was performed within 24 hours of the inferior STEMI symptoms. We assessed the RVMI diagnostic criteria in inferior MI patients using echocardiography.Results: Out of 31 patients (mean age 56.39 ± 9.02 years), RVMI by electrocardiography and echocardiography was found in 18 (37%). Moreover, multivariate analysis showed that two variables — RV systolic and diastolic function, were independent predictors of RVMI in inferior MI patients. Sensitivity and specificity of the RV systolic function were 94.4% and 69.2%, respectively, while RV diastolic functions were 44% and 76.9%, respectively.Conclusion: RV systolic function predict RVMI with relatively high sensitivity and specificity. RV diastolic function predicts RVMI with relatively low sensitivity but with high specificity.

Abstract

Background: Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne viral disease in the world. It is an emerging disease, episodic and occurring annually.  Aims: This study was to examine the knowledge, attitude, and practice of community in Palmeriam, Jakarta regarding dengue hemorrhagic fever.Methods: A community-based cross-sectional study was designed in this study between June to July 2016. Purposive sampling was done to collect data from 148 respondents.Results: This study found that average age was 47 years old, 75% were women, and 46.6% finished secondary high school. In another hand, 23.6% respondents had good knowledge, and 49.3% had a neutral attitude for preventing dengue hemorrhagic fever. The study found that 68.2% respondents had a mid-level of practice prevention dengue hemorrhagic fever and it can be improved. This study indicated that the community was quite familiar with Dengue hemorrhagic fever, but there was confusion about water storage and environment effect.Conclusion: Health promotion program and community participation should improve dengue awareness. Continuous campaign for enhancing the knowledge and attitude would result in better practice for DHF prevention.

Abstract

Background: Missing or lost teeth after tooth extraction may lead to tooth decay and infection. Many cases of tooth loss will not be followed with prosthodontics or rehabilitative treatments. Patients might be aware of partial denture, however no concern to replace the missing teeth.Aims: This study was to determine the relationship between the levels of knowledge and interest in using the partial dentures.Methods: This study was an observational analytic survey with cross sectional design, conducted in October - November 2017. The work involved 60 patients who had pulled teeth at Kanina Dental Clinic, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, who had been selected using purposive sampling technique. Levels of knowledge and interest among the participants were assessed by a set of questionnaire. The data obtained was then analysed using Kendalls Tau test.Results: From the study, we found that 35 respondents had good knowledge and high interest to use partial dentures (58.3%), while the other 22 patients (40%) had been noted with less knowledge and poor maintenance. From Kendalls Tau test, we found a significant relationship between the patients knowledge and partial removal denture maintenance of p value = 0.003. This study also highlights the role of patients’ peer to their decision to use the removable partial dentures.Conclusion: Respondents may consider loosing teeth affected to their physical aesthetics, masticatory system, and speaking comfort. Data shows the higher knowledge to the benefits of partial dentures the higher their interest in using removable partial dentures after tooth extraction.
