Abstract : Present study has been conducted as PSG Medical College, Coimbatore and for this study 85 patients who were chosen who met with inclusion and exclusion criteria were subjected to detailed clinical examination and investigations. Depending upon the site of incompetence and the magnitude of disease, the treatment is carried out. All the results are evaluated and analyzed by comparing with other standard results. In this study, there was a male preponderance noted to be about 5:1 and the Disease was noted to be more common in persons who have worked pertaining to long duration of sitting. The most common treatments that the patients underwent were incision and drainage for abscesses and wide excision with healing by secondary intention, marsupialization and Limberg flap. The complications noted are wound infection. Wound dehiscence and collection. The recurrence rates for the individual treatments have been studied and noted. The duration of hospital stay and time taken for complete healing of the wound is noted to be lowest in the Limberg flap procedure..

Abstract : Healthy lifestyles have been reported to have a direct impact on bone health. As various lifestyle factors can affect bone health, hence the present study collected the lifestyle history using a detailed questionnaire and estimated the bone specific alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and calcium in the serum samples of young females from Gulf Medical University (GMU). Forty females aged between 18-25 years meeting the inclusion and exclusion criteria were selected for the study. Their lifestyle practices and physical activity characteristics were assessed through a validated questionnaire, followed by serum calcium and ALP estimation. It was reported that 82.5% participants reported having appropriate sun exposure, 30% were physically active, 27.5% took daily caffeine, 12.5% reported smoking, 80% stated adequate dairy product intake and 55% described daily intake of vegetables. The average BMI was 22.3, 80% had no history of bone fractures and there was no family history of bone disorders in 92.5% participants. 52.5% of the participants got their Vit-D checked recently, and out of them 68.4% reported to have low vit-D levels. The average serum calcium and ALP was found to be 9.7 mg/dl and 11.28 μg/l, respectively. However, when we compared the variables like physical activity, sun exposure timing, soft drink consumption and ethnicity with serum calcium and bone specific ALP, no significant difference was observed. However, limited physical activity and moderate BMI were also reported, hence improvement in lifestyle habits is warranted to promote healthy bones in later life..

Abstract : The aim of the study is to retrospectively determine the correlation between the Age and CT severity score of Covid-19 patients. This is a retrospective original research of 357 patients (IPD and OPD) between 1st February 2021 to 31st March 2021 for Covid-19. Patients’ CT severity scores and Demographic variables were recorded. The correlation between CT severity Score and age was determined.357 RTPCR positive Covid-19 patients were included in the study. The Mean age was 44.8 (14.27) and the Mean CT severity score was 7.78(5.92). The Most affected age group was 41 – 50 years of age. (26.61 %). The Highest mean CT severity score was seen in >60 years and the least was seen in < 30 years. A Positive correlation was noted between age and CT severity score (r -0.33, p value <0.05). We conclude that there was a relatively more significant risk and severity associated with the advancing age of the patient..

Abstract : Anticonvulsants like pregabalin has been used in pre-emptive analgesia for postoperative pain relief in various surgical procedures, particularly when pain includes a neuropathic component. We have studied the effect of a single preoperative dose of Pregabalin on acute postoperative pain after inguinal hernia open mesh repair. The study included 66 patients, who were divided into two groups. Group A was the control group who had opted not to consume pregabalin, while Group B participants were given 150 mg of oral Pregabalin 1 hour before the procedure. Acute postoperative scores were calculated based on a 0-10 point Visual Analogue Scale/VAS (0-no pain, 10- worst pain) at time intervals of 0, 6, 12, 18 and 24 hours. Mann Whitney U test was done for comparing pain scores between the two groups. Friedman’s test was used to compare pain scores at different periods within the groups. Significant differences in pain scores were noted between the groups. Group A had the highest scores at 6 & 18 hrs and lowest at 0 hr. Pain scores in Group B were highest at 18 hrs and lowest at 0 hr. There was a statistically significant difference in pain scores between groups A and B at 0 hr, 6 hrs, and 18 hrs. But, there was no significant difference at 24 hrs and between the total pain scores. Single preoperative dose of 150 mg of Pregabalin taken orally reduces acute pain scores in the immediate postoperative period following inguinal hernia repair..

Abstract : Stroke is the second leading cause of both disability and death worldwide, with the highest burden of the disease shared by low and middle-income countries. Over the last decade, there has been a significant rise in patients hospitalized for stroke with HIV infection. This has important public health and socioeconomic consequences. HIV is independent risk factor for ischemic strokes. This study was conducted to find out correlation between HIV patients & ischemic strokes patients of western Maharashtra. To study different etiology of stroke in HIV patients admitted in a tertiary care teaching hospital. This observational study was conducted in department of medicine from March 2021 to June 2022 to study different etiology & correlation of HIV patients in ischemic stroke. Ten stroke patients with HIV admitted in the medical ICU were studied. 9 with ischemic infarctions (90%) and 1 with intraparenchymal hemorrhage (10%). Mean age was 42 years (range 23 to 72), 7 patients (70%) were male. Nine patients had a previous diagnosis of HIV infection (90%) and 1 patients were diagnosed during the acute stroke evaluation (10%). Mean CD4 count at the time of stroke diagnosis was 116 cells/mm3 (range 2 to 659); 8 patients (80%) had CD4 count ≤200 cells/mm3 and 5 (50%) had CD4 count ≤100 cells/mm3.Antiretroviral therapy had been used by 6 patients (60%), including 3 patients (30%) who were on CART at the time of the stroke. Tobacco use was the most prevalent traditional vascular risk factor (50%), followed by hypertension (40%). Anticardiolipin antibodies were investigated in 3 patients (30%) and found in 10% of these cases. 4 patients (40%) with non-atherothrombotic strokes had been exposed to antiretroviral agents when the stroke occurred. There were no also differences in CD4 counts at the time of the stroke between the atherothrombotic and non-atherothrombotic groups. Patients with unfavorable outcome (death or severe disability) had a lower CD4 count. All patients had poor prognosis with CD4 count ≤100 cells/mm3 (mean 22.6 ± 20.3). Stroke in HIV patients had independent risk factor as being immunocompromised. CNS vasculitis being the most common mechanism for causal of the stroke. Hypertension, dyslipidemia, metabolic syndrome, smoking were other significant risk factors. 20% patients with stroke had only HIV as a risk factor..
