Abstract : We evaluate the diagnostic values of some biomarkers in detecting bacterial coinfection among 40 children with Adenovirus-related severe pneumonia. Interleukin (IL)-6, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) tests were conducted. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was used to evaluate their diagnostic values. Study findings showed that 9 children had bacterial coinfections (22.5%). The area under the curves was 0.772, 0.696 and 0.575 for PCT, hs-CRP and IL-6, respectively. The optimal cut-off point for PCT was > 2.25 ng/ml (sensitivity 77%, specificity 40%), hs-CRP was > 51.6 mg/dl (sensitivity 50%, specificity 93%), and IL-6 was > 3.36 pg/ml (sensitivity 100%, specificity 31%).

Abstract : Due to the fact that correct adoption of surgical approach in head and neck surgery is basically the ultimate goal of surgery, performing 2D and 3D modeling using MRI and CT scanning can lead to correct election of surgical approach and increase diagnosis. The purpose of this study was to use high-resolution CT scan and MRI slices to create 2D and 3D models of head and neck using 3D Slicer software in patients undergoing infratemporal and parapharyngeal tumors, and to compare the effect of 3D modeling. We also aimed to compare the effect of 3D versus 2D modeling in patients undergoing surgery and to evaluate the performance of experienced surgical staff in surgical procedure and tumor type diagnosis based on 3D model. The present case-series study was performed on 10 consecutive patients undergoing surgery for infratemporal and parapharyngeal tumors. A 3D-model consisting separate CT scans or MRI images of the head and neck areas was made. We used 3D Slicer software to reconstruct the anatomical atlas of the head and neck structure and specific tissues we want to extract from CT scans and MRI images. There was no significant difference between the type of tumor identified according to the surgeon's opinion for each patient before and after viewing the images. There was a significant difference before and after reviewing the reconstructed images of the patients according to the surgeons' viewpoints with regard to vascular and neural involvements. Examining the images effectively and significantly influences the choice of surgical approach independent to the experience of surgeons. The use of 2D and 3D modeling on imaging techniques is effective in choosing surgical approach of patients with infratemporal and parapharyngeal tumors.

Abstract : Chronic Kidney Disease is associated with higher incidence of venous thromboembolism, including pulmonary embolism, and increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Study also showed the evidence of pulmonary hypertension related to chronic kidney disease is an independent predictor of mortality. Diagnosis of pulmonary embolism itself is challenging, especially in many comorbidities with similar features, as in pulmonary embolism or pulmonary hypertension complicated with chronic kidney disease. Multiple team approach could be necessary to improve patient evaluation and help clinical decisionmaking in order to provide the best possible care. The availability of many imaging modalities with special characteristics and accuracy can better help the diagnosis challenges.

Abstract : To evaluate the effect of early palliative care integrated with standard oncologic care compared with standard oncologic care only on improvement of quality of life in patients with metastatic non -small cell lung cancer. 30patients diagnosed within 8 weeks as non-small cell lung cancer were included and randomized to two groups, the study group received standard oncologic care plus early palliative care in form of Oral megestrol acetate (Megace 160mg tablet, DEVA company) plus oral olanzapine (olapex 5mg tablet, Apex company) once neightly for management of anorexia and cachexia syndrome and nebulized morphine sulfate 5mg (0.5ml with 4ml normal saline) every 6 hours for management of dyspnea and management of pain according to severity of pain by using WHO ladder for cancer pain management. results revealed that the study group has high FACT-L score than the control group (95.2±13.74 versus 80±12.51) which means improve quality of life, also we found that megestrol acetate plus olanzapine improve appetite according to appetite VAS (5.73±1.03 versus 3.73±0.7) and increase body weight (60.55±8.48 versus 54.83±5.89). Early palliation of common symptoms with standard oncologic care improves quality of life in patient with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer, and the use of Megestrol acetate 160mg plus olanzapine 5mg improve appetite and increase body weight, and that Morphine sulfate nebulizer 5mg improve dyspnea but has no effect on oxygen saturation in patient with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer.

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.
