Abstract : Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibromas (JNA) are a benign and locally-aggressive vascular tumour. It commonly presents with recurrent unilateral epistaxis and nasal obstruction in peripubescent men. This is a case report of a 14-year-old patient with extensive JNA disease with base of skull involvement causing facial disfigurement, who had undergone successful removal of tumour following embolization and combined surgical endoscopy with open approach.

Abstract : Stroke is a public health problem in Romania, with important medical, social, and financial implications, sustained efforts being made to improve post-stroke rehabilitation phase. A significant concern nowadays is the patient's quality of life (QoL); a successful stroke recovery therapy implies the increasing of QoL index. However, there are very few studies evaluating patients’ QoL after stroke in Romania. In this context, the aim of this study is to evaluate the benefits that one-year rehabilitation therapy brings to a patient with a history of ischemic stroke, highlighting the factors that influence the QoL index. A prospective study was conducted in which the QoL (calculated using the stroke-specific QoL questionnaire) was measured in a group of 40 patients who had suffered an ischemic stroke in the left middle cerebral artery territory and benefited from rehabilitation therapy for one year. Patients admitted in our Neurology Department between January 2018–June 2019 were divided into several subgroups according to age, gender, domicile, educational level, familial support, and comorbidities. Statistical data were processed in SPSS v.20. Young age (under 60), urban domicile, high educational level, and family support are positive factors for QoL improvement after one year of stroke rehabilitation, while patient’s gender does not influence the outcome of the therapy. Stroke rehabilitation treatment is an essential component for improving the QoL of the patient after stroke; it has become topic of concern in the literature nowadays. This work complements the existing data on this topic for stroke patients in Romania.

Abstract : Although intensively studied, Parkinson's disease (PD) continues to challenge neurologists, particularly in its advanced stages. While initial oral treatment with levodopa improves motor symptoms, conventional treatment loses its effectiveness as the disease progresses, other therapies, such as continuous levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) administration, being required. In recent years, perspectives have shifted, neurologists considering PD a complex impairment of several systems causing motor and non-motor symptoms. This study’s aim was to evaluate non-motor symptoms in Romanian patients with advanced PD undergoing continuous LCIG administration. In this cross-sectional observational study, two groups of 20 patients each were compared. The first group comprised PD diagnosed patients at Hoehn-Yahr (HY) stages II to IV receiving intermittent oral levodopa treatment; the second group comprised patients treated with the Duodopa® pump. All participants had been diagnosed with PD according to the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society Brain Bank (UKPDSBB) Clinical Diagnostic Criteria. Motor and non-motor symptoms were recorded along with various data concerning the patient's age, duration of illness, gender, and comorbidities. The data were processed in SPSS v.20. Constipation, sleeping disorders, and mental disorders were observed more frequently in subjects receiving continuous LCIG administration (statistically significant). Although orthostatic hypotension, restless legs syndrome, and hypersalivation were less evident in patients receiving Duodopa® pump therapy, no statistical significance was observed. Anosmia and urinary incontinence remained unresolved despite antiparkinsonian therapy. Non-motor symptoms are essential components of the clinical picture in PD regardless of the therapeutic approach, with constipation, sleeping disorders, and mental disorders more prevalent in LCIG-treated patients.

Abstract : Developments in the developing world over the last two decades have dramatically increased diabetes worldwide. Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an important public health problem. The presence of obesity, sedentary lifestyle and physical problems among the patients may increase the effect of diabetes. The objective of the current study was to determine the comparison of rural and urban areas among diabetic patients related to their physical activity. It was comparative cross sectional study. It was performed at Sialkot Medical Complex, Civil Hospital Sialkot, CMH Sialkot; Kashmir Hospital Sialkot Sameena Nisaar Hospital Sialkot. Convenient sampling (Non-Probability) was used for data collection. The calculated sample size was 400. Out of total 156 participants from rural areas, 2(1.3%) were sedentary, 13(8.3%) were under active, 12(7.7%) were under active regular light activity, 26(16.7%) were under active irregular, and 103(66%) were active. Out of 244 participants from urban areas 9(3.7%) were sedentary, 8(3.3%) were under active, 15(6.1%) were under active regular light activity, 58(23.8%) were under active irregular, and 154(63.1%) were active. P value calculated through chi square test show that there is difference in the level of aerobic activity level and people from rural areas had increased aerobic activity. Out of total 156 participants from rural areas, 140(89.7%) were not performing strength and flexibility. Out of total 244 participants from urban areas, 214(87.7%) were not performing strength and flexibility. Although, participants from rural are physical more active than participants from urban area in terms of aerobic activity but there is no difference in the strength and flexibility among both groups and as a whole participant from both group had equal level of physical activity.

Abstract : This study focussed on evaluation of the addition of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticlesto conventional glass-ionomer (GC Universal Restorative Cement 2) on Vickers microhardness and shearbond strength. This study was an in-vitro experimental study. This study was carried out at Pakistan Instituteof Engineering and Applied Sciences (PIEAS). It was completed in two and half months i.e from 1stJanuary,2019 till 15 March,2019. Titania nano particles were added in conventional glass-ionomer (GCUniversal Restorative Cement 2) at 3%, 5% (w/w). Unblended powder was used as control group (Group 1)while glass-ionomer containing titania nano particles at 3% (w/w) was considered as (Group 2) and glass–ionomer containing titania nano particles at 5% (w/w) was considered as (Group 3). Diamond indentor wasused to measure surface microhardness. Cylinders of all groups (9.5X1mm) were prepared. Total of 9sample cylinders were prepared. Shear bond strength was measured using universal testing machine. Humananterior teeth were used to measure shear bond strength. Blocks of all three groups (4X4X1mm) wereattached to treated enamel and dentin surfaces. Total of 18 human anterior teeth were used to measure shearbond strength, 6 teeth for each group (3 for enamel and 3 for dentin). SEM analysis of specimen of flexuralstrength test was done before and after test. One-way ANOVA analysis was conducted to compare the shearbond strength and microhardness between the three groups. Post-hoc Tukey analysis was used to compareinter-group mean differences. An arbitrary significance value of 0.05 was considered to be significant. Alldata was entered and analysed using SPSS v 23.0. Results showed significant increase in microhardness(p<0.05) and significant increase in shear bond strength (p<0.05). Conclusions: GI-containing 3% and 5%(w/w) TiO2 nanoparticles are restorative material with enhanced mechanical properties. This interestingexperimental Glass-ionomer may be used for higher stress-bearing area restorations such as Class I and II.
