Abstract

Objective: To determine the average skeletal muscle mass (SMM) value in young adults as a reference population; to analyze the correlation of gender, and body mass index to the cut off point; and to determine skeletal muscle mass cut off points of population in Bandung, Indonesia.Methods: This was a cross-sectional study involving 199 participants, 122 females and 77 males. The sampling technique used was the multistage random sampling. The participants were those who lived in four major regions in Bandung, Indonesia: Sukajadi, Cicadas, Buah Batu, and Cibaduyut. Results: The average appendicular skeletal mass index (ASMI) in females and males based on body mass index (BMI) were identified. The average ASMI values for normal BMI in females was 5.982±0.462 kg/m2 while the average ASMI values normal BMI for males was 7.581±0.744 kg/m2Conclusions: A correlation between BMI and ASMI that was considered statistically significant was found in females (0.7712; p<0.05) and a very significant correlation was seen in males (0.870; p<0.05). The cut off points were defined by the normal BMI, which were 5.059 for females and 6.093 for males.

Abstract

Objective: To investigate the correlation between Intravesical Prostatic Protrusion (IPP) and Prostate Uretral Angle (PUA) in Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) patient with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) on International Prostatic Symptoms Score (IPSS) and uroflowmetry.Methods: A cross sectional study was done to 71 BPH patients with LUTS who attended Urologic Clinic in Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital and matched the inclusion and exclusion criterias. The Intravesical Prostatic Protrusion and PUA were measured using transrectal ultrasound and the degree of LUTS was measured using IPSS and uroflowmetry. Patients were classified based on PUA (<350 dan ≥350) and degree of IPP (grade 1< 5mm;II 5-10mm;III >10mm). Data were analyzed using Spearman correlation test. Results: Prostatic-Urethral Angle has a strong correlation with IPSS total and voiding (0.670 and 0.715) but the correlation was weak with IPPS storage (0.381). Furthermore, PUA has a strong negative correlation with Qmax dan Qave values. The bigger the PUA, the smaller Qmax dan Qave values. IPP has a strong correlation with IPSS total and voiding (0.645 and 0.662), but has moderate correlation with IPSS storage (0.442). Furthermore, IPP has no correlation with the values of Qmax, Qave, Voided volume and PVR.Conclusions: Prostatic-Urethral Angle and Intravesical Prostatic Protrusion have a strong correlation with the occurence of LUTS in BPH patients.

Abstract

Objective: To determine the risk factors that played roles in the incidence of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in such patients. Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis is a form of tuberculosis caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis that is resistant to at least isoniazid and rifampicin.Methods: This was a case control study to compare MDR-TB to non-MDR-TB pulmonary tuberculosis outpatients in Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital, Bandung on August–September 2014. Fifty MDR-TB outpatients were included as the cases and 50 non-MDR-TB outpatients as controls. Data was collected by questionnaires and patient’s registration forms. Bivariate and multivariate analyses were performed using chi-square test and multiple logistic regression test, with p<0.05 considered significant. Results: From bivariate analysis, number of previous tuberculosis treatments, regularity of previous treatment, and burden of cost were significant risk factors for developing MDR-TB (p<0.05); while from multivariate analysis, number of previous TB treatments was the only risk factor that played a significant role in the incidence of MDR-TB (OR 24.128 95% CI 6.771-85,976). Conclusions: Patients and medication factors are risk factors that play roles in the incidence of MDR-TB. The significant risk factor is the number of previous TB treatment.

Abstract

Objective: Penetrating skull injury (PSI) is a neurosurgical emergencies. Most PSI cases reported were caused by gunshot wounds. Although the diagnosis and management of those cases has been described, the actual cases, especially in our center, were quite rare.Methods: A craniectomy debridement with a supine position was performed and removal of the object was achieved. Intraoperatively, we succed control the bleeding as expected.Results: The patient was operated and hospitalized in our center; physical examination revealed neurologically intact before and after the removal of the object. The patient was sent home without any neurological deficits or other complications.Conclusions: We reported a case of penetrating skull injury in a 5-year-old girl caused by a scissors. Penetrating skull injuries were interesting due to its mechanism, management and complications. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment should resulted in good outcomes.Keywords: Penetrating skull injury, a sharp metal object DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v3n2.588

Abstract

Objective: To examine the intervertebral disc characteristic on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in lumbar herniated disc (LHD) patients with progressive neurological deficit.Methods: Patients were collected retrospectively from Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Database from 2011–2013 with LHD, had neurological deficit such as radiculopathy and cauda equine syndrome for less than four weeks with a positive sign confirmed by neurological examination and confirmatory with MRI examination.Results: A total of 14 patients with lumbar herniated disc disease (10 males, 4 females) suffered from progressive neurological deficit with an average age of (52.07±10.9) years old. Early disc height was 9.38±0.5 mm and progressive neurological deficit state disc height was 4.03±0.53 mm, which were significantly different statisticaly (p<0.01). Symptoms of radiculopathy were seen in 11 patients and cauda equine syndrome in three patients. Modic changes grade 1 was found in five patients, grade 2 in eight patients,grade 3 in one patient, Pfirmman grade 2 in eleven patients and grade 3 in three patients. Thecal sac compression 1/3 compression was seen in four patients and 2/3 compression in ten patients.Conclusions: Neurosurgeon should raise concerns on the characteristic changes of intervertebral disc in magnetic resonance imaging examination to avoid further neural injury in lumbar herniated disc patients.Keywords: Lumbar herniated disc, magnetic resonance imaging, progressive neurological deficit DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v5n2.1042

Abstract

Objective: To determine the validity and reliability of TranQol questionnaire that has been translated into Indonesian to be used in Indonesian thalassemia major patients. The quality of life problems among these patients can be detected earlier because TranQol is more precise compared to the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQLTM), World Health Organization Quality of Life Instruments (WHOQOL), and SF-36 Questionaire.Methods: This study was conducted in Bandung, Indonesia from October 2015 to March 2016 and used a standard “forward-backward” translation procedure. It involved 60 adults and 73 children who are thalassemia major patients, and 71 parents of patients in Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital. TranQol was processed through forward and backward translation approach and evaluation was conducted by the TranQol author. After the translation process, a cognitive debriefing was performed and the translated TranQol was tested to all subjects.Results: Cronbach’s alpha >0.7 was used for all TranQol categories. Front validity and content validity testing was performed. The internal validity results showed that some questions were not valid.Conclusions: TranQol reliability in Indonesian language for every category is good. Validity for TranQol in Indonesian language shows that the translated TranQol is not quite suitable that it still cannot be used.

Abstract

Objective: To describe of a rare case of cervical stump fibroid presenting as a late complication of supra-cervical hysterectomy.Methods: A 68-year old-female with a history of lower abdominal pain and distention for six months with increasing intensity was referred from a local clinic to the department of radio-diagnosis for evaluation. She had a history of subtotal hysterectomy previously. On ultrasonography and computerized tomography imaging studies, a large adnexal lesion was noted suggesting the possibility of a cervical stump leiomyoma. The patient underwent an elective surgery and the diagnosis was confirmed in the context of histological findings.Results: Patient was operated for the radiologically diagnosed large cervical stump leiomyoma which was laterhistologically confirmed with an uneventful recovery.Conclusions: Imaging investigations like computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are valuable in the diagnosis of rare adnexal masses from cervical stump arising as late delayed complications of supra-cervical hysterectomy.

Abstract

Objective: To identify the relationship between periodontitis in pregnant women through the periodontal disease index (PDI) and low birth weight babies.Methods: A case-control study was conducted to determine the relationship between periodontitis in pregnant women through the periodontal disease index (PDI) and the low birth weight babies (LBW). The participants were mothers with periodontitis and non-periodontitis mothers aged 20–35 years who gave birth in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology-Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital, Bandung in the period of December to January 2005. Results: Based on the chisquare test results a highly significant relationship between periodontitis and low birth weight (p=0.002) was found. The Odd’s ratio showed that the risk of low birth weight in pregnant women with periodontitis was 15.58 times higher compared to those who did not suffer from periodontitis. The periodontal disease index has an accuracy of 88.6% in predicting the incidence of LBW. It strongly influenced the incidence of LBW with a high Odd’s ratio of 28.0. Pregnant women who suffer from periodontitis with a PDI > 3.25, have 19.2 times higher risk for delivering babies with LBW compared to the non-periodontitis mothers. Conclusions: The loss of attachment affects the possibility of delivering LBW babies.Keywords: Periodontitis, periodontal disease index, low birth weight DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v4n1.681
