Abstract : Prescribing pattern indicating rational level of drug use. Rational drug use is essential to optimize quality of healthcare delivery in health system. This study aims to assess the prescribing patterns in primary health care or hospital in developing countries. A systematic review was performed on articles from PubMed, Science Direct and Google Scholar during the period 2008-2018. A combination key terms such as “prescribing patterns, core drug use indicator, WHO, primary care, hospital” was used for the search. Original articles published in English and reported prescribing pattern in primary health care or hospital were the inclusion criteria. There were 21 articles included in the review. The review results show that in developing countries prescribing indicators are still far from the standard recommended by WHO. Provision of drugs to patients in one prescription is still around 3-6 drugs, the use of antibiotics is still very excessive, as well as the use of injection preparations. In addition, the use of generic drugs and suitability of EML is still much less than 100%. This makes the use of drugs in health facilities to be irrational. As the result, the use of drugs in health facilities becomes expensive. Our review indicated that prescribing indicator in core drug use indicators for primary health care facilities are substantial to ensure that the treatment we provide to patients was safe, effective and rational.

Abstract : This study focuses on the concept of medical tourism, its significance and implications for the Jordanian health sector. Patients travel to Jordan to seek elective, less expensive medical procedures while having a vacation. Other factors that promote medical tourism include better quality of care, shorter queues, exotic locations, culture… etc. The Medical Liability Law, passed last year, further encouraged more patients to seek treatment in Jordan. Medical tourism contribution to Jordanian GDP is noteworthy; providing economic growth and employment opportunities. Though medical tourism received great recognition, little is said about specific concerns like brain drain of health workers and incurring high costs on Jordanian citizens. This issue clearly needs further attention.

Abstract : The commonest spine infection is tuberculosis, with 50% of all TB musculoskeletal.Patients complained of back pain and chronic illness manifestations. An excessive thoracal kyphotic orhyperkyphosis that apparent on physical examination is called gibbus. About 10% - 47% of patients withspine TB had neurological deficits with paraplegia is the most terrifying complication. Describe spine TBcase profile in an Orthopaedic Hospital and to correlate between presence of gibbus, and kyphotic deformitywith neurological deficits in spine TB patients. A retrospective study of spine TB patients profile inOrthopaedic Hospital Surakarta from January 2015 until December 2017. Ninety patients were identifiedand reviewed. Data taken from medical records and weekly discussion of spine division at Prof. DR. R.Soeharso Orthopaedic Hospital Surakarta. Correlation study use the chi square data analysis. There were 40male patients. Gibbus was found in 55 patients and 48 patients had neurological deficit in physicalexamination. Thirty-nine patients had kyphotic deformity > 30o. Based on the patient’s profile, we analysethe data using chi square to evaluate the correlation between gibbus or kyphotic angle ≥ 30o withneurological deficit incidence, the result shows that neurological deficit incidence is 3.94 times higher withthe presentation of gibbus, and 1.50 times higher with kyphotic angle ≥ 30o.Presentation of apparent gibbus is very meaningful in predicting the concomitant neurological deficit. Wecan also safely conclude that excessive kyphotic deformity can be a good predictor for the prognosis ofspine TB disease course.

Abstract : Predicting the type of delivery; with the least-cost means, for a pregnant woman, is veryvaluable, when there are no other facilities to help in predicting what type we are going to choose.Anthropometric measures are very easy to perform and are cost effective in such circumstances, and mayhelp in lowering the rates of maternal and perinatal mortalities and morbidities, by making the right decisionearlier, especially in the developing regions of the world, where maternal and perinatal deaths constitute amajor problem in health facilities (Benjamin et al., 2011) (Mahmood, Campbell, Wilson, 1988) [1,2]Caesarean section (CS) is a surgical procedure to deliver one or more babies through incisions made in theabdomen (laparotomy) and the uterus (hysterectomy) of the mother. There are many indications to proceedwith CS, such as previous CS, cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD), dystocia, malpresentation, fetal andmaternal diseases and others, but in general, when the vaginal delivery fails, or when the risks during havinga vaginal delivery exceeds the risks of a CS, a CS is recommended (Baker, Kenny, 2011)3 CPD is the resultof an anatomical disproportion between the head of the fetus and the mother’s pelvis. It may be due to smallpelvis of the mother, large head of the baby (although it’s rare that a fetal anomaly contributes to CPD) orcombination of both (Baker, Kenny, 2011) [3].

Abstract : Early healing of periodontal wounds in oral cavity may be critical to the treatment outcome. This study examined the effects of oral pomegranate peel extract on the healing of surgically induced full thickness of the gingival wound in terms of histopathological aspect. A total of 30 healthy adult New Zealand female rabbits were randomly divided into two equal classes of incised wounds groups, experimental and control. The experimental group as study daily orally received 1 ml of Punica Granatum L., beginning on the first day of surgical gingival wound, continue 10 days after surgery, using a wound healing pattern. While; the animals in the control group, their surgical gingival wound pattern has been left untreated. In histological findings, scarification was undertaken for the healing periods (1, 8 and 15 days) of animals bearing a given gingival wound. The result of this study showed that the oral applications of Pomegranate peel extract promoted the process of wound healing particularly epithelial regeneration and collagen density with highly vascularized connective tissue remarkably in comparison with control group. In addition, the histological finding of our material revealed that, in general terms, it had all the hallmarks of complete healing. To conclude, results showed that oral administrations Pomegranate peel extract can stimulate healing properties on gingival wounds, in rabbit's model.
