Abstract : Determining the frequency of hypogonadism in thalassemia major patients and clarifying factors affecting it can be helpful in reducing related complications and improving the prognosis. The objective of the present study was to establish the frequency of hypogonadism in thalassemia major patients of Hazrat-e Rasool Akram Hospital during 2013-2017. A descriptive and analytic cross-sectional observation was carried out for this study and 285 thalassemia major patients were selected via convenience sampling. The frequency of hypogonadism among samples was assessed and the relationship between hypogonadism and different factors was analyzed. One hundred forty-six patients (51/2%) had hypogonadism. A statistically significant relationship was found between tallness and hypogonadism; taller patients suffered from hypogonadism more than shorter ones (P=0.025); but weight, Initial serum ferritin level, LH, FSH, testosterone, splenectomy and the type of Injectable product had no significant relationship with of hypogonadism occurrence in the studied patients (P > 0.05). Based on the results, it is inferred that hypogonadism can be found in half of thalassemia major patients and therefore proper measures must be taken in order to decrease its prevalence.

Abstract : This study aimed to evaluate the homogeneity of mixing calcium carbonate (CaCO3) with nano-hydroxyapatite (HA) by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) and assess the effect of coating commercially pure titanium (CP Ti) implant with this mixture on bone-implant interface strength after implantation in the femurs of rabbit for two and six weeks through torque removal test. In this study, CaCO3 and nano HA were mixed in the same proportion, the EPD method was used for the deposition of this mixture on the CP Ti implant screws, which were implanted in the femurs of eight rabbits. Osseointegration between coated screw implants and bones were assessed using the torque removal test two and six weeks after implantation and compared with osseointegration between uncoated screw implants and bones. The CaCO3 and nano-HA mixture were deposited without cracks on titanium by EPD. The torque removal values were higher in coated screw implants than in those of uncoated screws at both periods of implantation and have a mean value of 4.8 N.cm for two weeks and 17.2 N.cm for six weeks. The values in uncoated screws had mean values of 2.6 and 10.7 N.cm, respectively. The mixture of CaCO3 and nano-HA was deposited homogenously and properly on the CP Ti by EPD. The mixture-coated screw implants showed higher torque removal values than the uncoated screw implants at two- and six-week implantation periods and thus had a higher degree of bone-to-implant integration.

Abstract : The symmetry and shape of the alar base has a major role in structuring normal appearance of the nose. The current surgical approaches aim to create a proper balance in alar base leading the patients’ high satisfaction aesthetically and functionally. Thus, careful evaluation of preoperative alar base deformities and a detailed plan for correction of these deformities during surgery will lead to optimal longterm results and complete patient satisfaction. The present study aimed to determine the common alar base disharmonies in patients who were candidates for rhinoplasty. This cross-sectional study was performed on 705 consecutive patients who were candidates for rhinoplasty surgery with the aim of primary rhinoplasty. Pre-rhinoplasty photographs of patients were evaluated in frontal, bilateral and basal views, and sizes, shapes, dimensions, as well as deformities of alar base were evaluated. The mean of nasal base width was also 33.36±2.68mm. Totally, 56.2% of participants had the apparent deviation of the nose. With regard to horizontal alar base deformity, 35.9% of cases had normal condition, while general enlargement, thick alar wall, alar flaring, nasal sill, and broad alar base conditions were revealed in 16.74%, 13.62%, 16.31%, 8.23%, and 9.22% respectively. Assessment with regard to vertical alar base malposition showed normal condition in 47.0%, unilaterally cephalad condition in 6.67%, bilaterally cephalad condition in 20.14%, unilaterally caudal condition in 3.55% and bilaterally caudal condition in 22.55%. The most common anomaly of alar-columellar relationship was related to hanging ala followed by hanging ala retracted columella. There was no difference in types of unilaterally vertical alar base malposition between the two groups with and without the apparent deviation of the nose. Because a significant number of our population had vertical alar base malposition and/or horizontal alar base deformities, more attention should be made to different types of alar base disharmonies for initial planning of rhinoplasty.

Abstract : Nasal septal perforation is a defect in any portion of the cartilaginous or bony septum in which no overlying mucoperichondrium present. Multiple causes can lead to septonasal perforation. Nowadays with increasing desire to septorhinoplasty, the affected cases of septal perforation have been increased. The present study aimed to describe our experience on surgical repairing nasal septal perforation by alloderm grafting procedure. Seven patients suffering nasal septal perforation were enrolled in this case series study and underwent alloderm insertion in close or open septoplasty approach. The patients were divided based on the perforation size to less and more than one centimeter. Of Seven patients followed-up, two patients with perforation sized less than 1cm cured completely and there were no mucopericonderial closure in larger defects. In two patients who underwent revision rhinoplasty, the overall outcome was satisfactory after improvement of ptosis and dorsum without improvement in septal perforation. Alloderm is an alternative option in repairing nasal septal perforations sized less than one centimeter, but it may not be applicable for larger deformities.

Abstract : Intrauterine transfusion (IUT) is considered to be the most successful relief of fetal anemia resulting from Hemolytic Disease of Fetus and New-born (HDFN). This study aims to determine the frequencies of RBC alloantibodies that might cause fetal hemolysis and evaluate the perinatal outcome of IUTs in Palestine. We conducted a retrospective-cohort study of pregnant women who requited IUT procedure at Al-Makassed Hospital in East Jerusalem. We reviewed Blood-Bank records between 2003 and 2013. Data were collected on all RBC-alloimmunized pregnancies requiring IUTs including the age of pregnant women, blood typing, antibody identification, and antibody titers. Also, we collected clinical data from the patients' files about the obstetric history and current pregnancy. A total of 222 IUTs were performed during the study period in 65 alloimmunized pregnancies. Of all cases, 95.4% were associated with anti-D, 36.9 % with anti-C, and 10.8% with anti-E. Other non-Rh antibodies included mainly Kell, Kidd (10.8%), Luth and Lewis. The median number of transfusions needed per pregnancy was 3. The survival rate in the study was 90% and 27.3% of cases were hydropic; survival rate was significantly higher for fetuses without hydropic fetalis. IUT can improve perinatal outcome in alloimmunized pregnancies. In Palestine, policies should be drawn to introduce this procedure to more Palestinian Hospitals to increase its accessibility to the patients. In addition, secondary prevention of anti-D associated sensitization by rhesus immune globulin to reduce the incidence of HDFN should be more efficaciously implemented.
