Abstract : Acidulated phosphate fluoride (APF) application is used for dental caries prevention. Combination of APF with different laser wavelengths increases acid resistance in enamel. To assess the effects of Er-Yag (2.94 μm) laser and Diode (940 nm) laser after the application of APF on the morphology, mineral content and micro-hardness of the enamel surface of human teeth in-vitro. 40 freshly extracted 3rd molars crowns were collected then splitted longitudinally into 80 halves. (20 halves/ group; 10 halves/assesment). The four groups were divided as follows; Group 1 (Control group), group 2 (Application of 1.23% APF gel only), group 3 (diode laser; 1W for 60 sec, contact mode after APF gel) and group 4 (Er-YAG; 80 mJ, 0.8 W, 10 Hz; 0% air; 0% water, pulsed mode for 10 sec after APF gel). Specimens were morphologically examined by Scanning electron microscope (SEM and microhardness by Vickers Microhardness (VMH) test. Collected data were statistically analyzed by ANOVA test. Applying diode laser after APF showed superior VMH, and obliterated ERE in SEM while Er-YAG laser application after APF revealed the least microhardness with obliterated EREs and more cracks over other groups. Diode laser (940 nm) after APF application showed superior SEM with less cracks and VMH results over application of APF alone then control group. However, the poorest SEM with more cracks and least VMH was obtained upon Er-YAG laser application after APF..

Abstract :

Background: Thyroid nodules are common, and there is an increasing awareness about Thyroid-stimulating hormoneas a cancer risk. The current meta-analysis aimed to assess the link of TSH to thyroid malignancy among patients with thyroid nodules.

Subjects and Methods: We searched PubMed, EBSCO, Cochrane Library, and the first 100 articles in Google Scholar from the first published article up to April 2022; we included prospective cohorts, retrospective studies, and case-control studies. Case series and case reports were not included. The following terms were used: thyrotropin-releasing hormone, TSH, thyroid nodule, malignant potential. The Revman system was used for data analysis.

Results: In the present meta-analysis, (9 studies and 4565 patients were included, the studies were six retrospective, two prospective, and one cross-sectional). More than half of the studies were from Asia, two from Europe, one from the USA, and one from South America. The TSH level was associated with thyroid nodule malignant potential (odd ratio, 0.78, 95% CI, 0.27-1.30, P-value, 0.003). However, the heterogeneity was substantial, I2, 83%, P-value, <0.001, and Chi-square, 24.05.

Conclusion: Higher TSH levels were associated with increasing malignancy among patients with thyroid nodules. Serum TSH level might be included among risk factors of malignancy in patients with thyroid nodules. Larger prospective studies with longer duration are needed.

Abstract : Syphilis is a great imitator disease, presents with protean clinical manifestations which mimics other diseases. Neurosyphilis is a major complication of syphilis, it can occur at any stage of the disease with serious neurological and psychiatric manifestations. Over the years the clinical presentation of neurosyphilis has changed with psychiatric and neurocognitive symptoms being predominant. In the present retrospective study clinico-microbiological observations of 15 patients diagnosed to have Neurosyphilis on the basis of cerebrospinal fluid examination by Venereal Disease Research Laboratory test and Treponema pallidum hemagglutination over a period of three years were reviewed. The prevalence of neurosyphilis among syphilis patients was 41.66%. Male (86.67 %) predominance was observed in the study. Neuropsychiatry presentation [11(73.33%)] was the predominant followed by myelopathic [3(20%)] and meningovascular [1(6.66%)]. All the neuropsychiatry cases presented with complaints of behavioural changes, depression, mania and dementia. Human immunodeficiency virus co‑infection was noted in three (20%) patients. Diffuse Cortical atrophy on MR imaging was the predominant observation among 13 (86.66%) patients. On Cerebrospinal fluid examination analysis the median protein level was 75 mg/dl and CSF lymphocyte cell count > 5 cell/L was noted in 11 (73.33%) patients. Neuropsychiatric form was the most common neurosyphilis presentation followed by myelitic and meningovascular in the present study. Diffuse cortical atrophy was the common feature on MR imaging. Atypical forms are now the most common presentation which poses great challenge in diagnosis. High index of suspicion, early diagnosis and prompt treatment can alone decrease the disease burden..

Abstract : Adrenal cysts are very rare, but with the wider application of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) and sonography more adrenal cysts are detected incidentally. We describe a unique case of adrenocortical cyst in a 30-year-old female patient, which was removed surgically by adrenalectomy. She started developing a lump along the left lumbar region which was insidious in onset and progressive in nature. Lump came into attention of the patient when the lump was associated with mild pain in the left lumbar region. Surgical management was done. Histopathology was suggestive of pseudo-cyst (adrenocortical origin). Patient was discharged after removing the suture. Small, asymptomatic, non-functional cysts may be treated conservatively with regular follow-up by CECT or sonography and hormonal evaluation..

Abstract : Previous unidentified coronavirus was discovered in late December 2019, which known as COVID-19 disease was spread all over the world from Wuhan, China. Limited data are available about coronavirus disease 2019 during pregnancy. To find out the blood parameters and outcome of pregnancy in terms of neonate survival and birth weight among admitted COVID-19 positive pregnant women in a tertiary care hospital in Kolkata. A retrospective observational study was conducted at a designated COVID-19 Hospital in Kolkata. Data of 201 COVID-19 positive pregnant women admitted in Covid Antenatal Ward were analysed. Blood parameters like total count, C- Reactive Protein(CRP), Liver function test, sodium, potassium, urea, creatinine were assessed. Results were presented in tabular form in mean and percentage and test of significance was calculated. Mean age of 201 COVID-19 positive pregnant was 26.79 years with standard deviation of 4.94 years. The mean height was 1.59 meter and mean weight was 65.46 kg. 193 (96%) were asymptomatic and 186 (92.53%) mothers had no comorbidities. Commonest comorbidity found was pregnancy induced hypertension. COVID-19 biomarkers, mean of Ferritin, CRP and D-dimer was 4.49,18.69 and 2.37 respectively. Average total WBC count was 11826. 136 (41.3%) mothers had spontaneous onset of labour. 97 (48.3%) deliveries were vaginal delivery. 36 (17.91%) babies were delivered preterm. These observations strongly suggest the requirement of special care like provisions of radiant warmer, phototherapy that may be needed for the newborns of mothers with COVID-19..
