Abstract : Obesity is associated with a range of disabling musculoskeletal conditions in adults as knee and hip pain which account for a great deal of activity limitation. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of exercise program on balance, gait speed, and knee pain among obese people. A quasi-experimental trial with two groups, experimental and control groups post-test. A total of 40 adult obese patients with knee pain were randomly assigned to the control group (n=20) or experimental group (n=20). Participants in the experimental group received exercise program. A total of 40 patients were enrolled. There were significant differences between the experimental and control group regarding balance, speed gait, and knee pain (P< 0.005) with favor to experimental group. The study confirmed the effect of exercise on decrease knee pain, improved balance, and increase speed gait.

Abstract : Inguinal hernia surgery is one of the most common elective procedures performed by the surgeons and has evolved from open to laparoscopic technique. This prospective study was conducted to find out intra-operative incidents and post-operative outcomes in patients undergoing TEP and TAPP for inguinal hernia repair. A prospective study was conducted on 50 adult patients who underwent laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair between November 2017 to November 2018. It was a randomised study and equal number of patients were allocated to TAPP and TEP group based on surgeon’s preference. Operative time [p<0.0001], intensity of pain (VAS) was significantly higher in TAPP compared to TEP in the immediate post-operative period (6 hours) and during hospital stay [p=0.0299]. No significant difference observed in VAS between TEP and TAPP during follow up [after 1 week (p=0.2298), 2 weeks (p=0.2337), and 4 weeks (p=0.3944)]. Both TEP and TAPP were comparable in terms of Intra-operative and Post-operative complications {seroma [during hospital stay (p=0.1573), after 1 week (p=0.6375), after 2 weeks (p=0.5513)]; haematoma [during hospital stay (p=0.1492), after 1 week (p=0.3125)]} and Conversion (p=0.3125), and Length of hospital stay (p=0.3960). Time to resume normal work [p<0.0001] was significantly more in TAPP than TEP. Although both procedures are safe and efficacious TEP has a definite edge over TAPP taking into consideration the lesser intensity of post-operative pain during hospital stay, shorter duration of surgery and relatively early return to normal work associated with the former procedure. TEP should therefore be regarded as the procedure of choice for inguinal hernia repair.

Abstract : Sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and lipoprotein lipase (LPL) play an important role in erectile dysfunction (ED) in overweight men. This study focuses on the study of the rs727428; rs5934505; rs10822184 single nucleotide polymorphisms that determine the predisposition to erectile dysfunction in overweight men, as well as the relation of these polymorphisms with the level of sex hormones in the Kazakh population. A total of 200 men of Kazakh nationality, after consent, have been selected for the study, of which 70 patients with ED IIEF-5 (6-25) and overweight (BMI ≥ 25) and 130 healthy men IIEF-5 (26-30) normal weight (BMI <25). Single nucleotide polymorphisms rs727428 [C / T]; rs5934505 [C / T]; rs10822184 [T / C], were determined by the TaqMan method. Also, levels of SHBG, total testosterone, and serum albumin were measured. The rs 5934505 SNP is associated with ED affected by obesity (p = 0.004) in comparison with the control group. No association of rs5934505 polymorphism with lipid metabolism and sex hormone levels has been detected. The rs727428 polymorphism affects the level of total testosterone (p = 0.001) and albumin (p = 0.03) while the rs10822184 affects the level of LDL (p = 0.01) and triglycerides (p = 0.04). Thus, rs5934505SNP is associated with erectile dysfunction accompanied by overweight in people of the Kazakh population. This study also reveals that rs727428 affects the level of total testosterone in the Kazakh population.

Abstract : An estimation of five parameters viz, (FBS, PPBS, serum urea, creatinine, & uric acid) related to diabetic patients was carried out, and the concerned parameters are neither very sensitive nor very specific markers of renal function. As per the study it had been found that main biochemical markers slightly affect serum uric acid, serum urea & serum creatinine, which may represent risk factors in type II Diabetic patients. As per the results it had been observed that male Diabetic patients have higher levels of Serum Urea, Serum Creatinine & Serum Uric Acid than female patients. So the tendency of occurrence of renal function test value at the higher reference limits in case of Type II Diabetes mellitus reflects the initiation of nephropathy changes. As per the results it could be mentioned that serum creatinine, serum urea and serum uric acid may be essential for early detection of diabetic and nephropathy. Hence these tests should be a part of routine checkup for diabetic patients and healthy volunteers.

Abstract : To determine the age-related incidence and lymphocytic infiltration (both peri-tumoral & intra-tumoral) in biopsies of patients with follicular adenoma and papillary carcinoma thyroid. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total number of 50 patients presenting with follicular adenoma and papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) were selected for the present study. RESULTS: Among n=25 cases of follicular adenoma (n=19), 76.0% were females and (n=6) 24.0% were males and a female to male ratio was 3.1: 1. While among n=25 cases of papillary carcinoma (n=18), 72.0% were females, and (n=7) 28.0% were males and a female to male ratio was 2.1:1. This shows a female predominance in both groups. The ages of patients were divided into three age groups; Group 1(G I, 10-34 years), Group 2 (G II, 35-59 years) & Group 3 (G III, 60-84 years). The frequency of follicular adenoma and papillary carcinoma was related to age groups by applying Fisher’s Exact Test. The statistical relation of follicular adenoma and papillary carcinoma with age was found to be significant (p= 0.046). This shows young age preponderance in follicular adenoma; while in papillary carcinoma; a greater number of cases was present in 60-84 age groups. All of the biopsy sections were examined thoroughly under the microscope to observe the lymphocytic infiltrate (both intra-tumoural and peri-tumoural) within the histological section. When this lymphocytic infiltrate was graded according to the density, it depicted a higher frequency of papillary carcinomas showing a marked degree of lymphocytic infiltrate while the majority of follicular adenomas showed a moderate degree of lymphocytic infiltrate. CONCLUSION: The majority of follicular adenomas showed a moderate degree of lymphocytic infiltrate. The density of peri-tumoral & intra-tumoral lymphocytic infiltrate varies with transition from benign to malignant tumour. It might be an independent prognostic factor if studied on a comparatively large sample size with follow up of the patients.
