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.

Abstract : Indonesian Demographic Health Survey data the use of traditional family planning (FP) methods continues to increase in Indonesia, in 2017 married women aged 15-49 years using a FP method reached 64%, which is an increase from 2013 of 59.7%, while those using non modern FP methods in 2013 were only 0.4% and increased to 6% in 2017. This research was used quantitative research with analytical research design using cross sectional approach. The design of this study was used to determine the reinforcing factor of non modern contraceptive use in the city of Yogyakarta. This research has been carried out in three areas of the city of Yogyakarta, namely the Districts of Mergangsan, Gondokusuman, and Mantrijeron in July 2019. There is a correlation between health care support and non modern contraceptive use, the use of male contraception (spouse contraceptive use) is statistically significant to the use of traditional contraception, respondents whose husbands male contraception have 0.04 times the opportunity to use traditional contraception compared to respondents whose husband do not uses contraception for men. The factors that reinforce couples in the child hearing age to use non modern contraceptive are: use of male (husband) contraceptive methods and support from health workers.

Abstract : Medication Errors pose a threat to patient safety, however, identifying the occurrence of incidents of medication errors are important aspect of medication handling process. Purpose of the study is to identify the types of medication errors the respondents have experienced in the last 10 years and improve patient safety. 42 Pharmacists participated in the survey while 270 Registered Nurses were selected using consecutive sampling method (n=312). Reliability coefficient was 0.84; level of significance was α = 0.05. A self-structured questionnaire (see Supplementary files) was used for data collection. The research questions were analyzed with descriptive statistics such as frequency tables, charts, percentages and means while the research hypothesis were analyzed with Kruskal-Wallis non-parametric test for investigating variability within a variable while t-test and Levene’s test statistic were applied to investigate difference between two variables. The responses were scored (1-5) and the best response was assigned the highest score in descending order. Data was analyzed using Statistical Package for the Social Science version 21.0 and data presented on relevant tables and charts. The most common types of Medication Errors among the respondents were patient misidentification, giving the wrong medications, wrong dosage and wrong dosage form. The total mean action of pharmacists and nurses were 3.76 and 3.5 respectively. The Kruskal-Wallis test results showed that there was significant difference (p<0.05) between the types of medication error and the action to medication errors among the respondents. To improve patient safety, it is important to take into account several complex mechanisms such as periodic training of pharmacists and nurses, improving medication handling process. This article reports the results of a health care intervention on human participants. It was ethically approved at the Research Ethics Committee of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital Nigeria with the registration number UPTH/ADM/90/S. II/VOL.XI/44 on 13th July 2016..

Abstract : Hepatitis C virus infects liver and degenerate its structure. The progression of disease to chronicity is leaded by the production of acute phase proteins mainly CRP. C reactive protein is synthesized in liver and stimulated by cytokine Il-6, in response to tissue damage, inflammation and infection. The objective of this study was to find the association between CRP and HCV in patients with both positive and negative HCV RNA by PCR. A total of 98 HCV positive patients from Best-way Medical Center, Lahore, and Project of WHO at Allama Iqbal Medical College, Lahore and CAMB were included in the study in which HCV antibodies were detected to be positive. These all patients were tested for the detection of viral RNA by PCR. CRP assay was performed to all specimens of patients. According to study, 50(51%) out of 98 were positive for HCV RNA and 48(49 %) out of 98 were negative for HCV RNA. 6 (12 %) out of 50 were positive for CRP in HCV RNA positive cases while 12 (25 %) out of 48 were positive for CRP in HCV RNA negative cases. The finding of present study shows that there is no significant relationship of CRP and HCV infection and more, that CRP assay is not useful as a diagnostic marker of hepatitis C virus.
