Abstract : Antibiotics are chemical substances derived from living organisms that can hamper the life cycle of other organisms. Ampicillin belongs to the penicillin group of β-lactam antibiotics and has broad- spectrum activity. Ampicillin has been used extensively to treat bacterial infections for a long and it is one of the highly prescribed antibiotics. Cloxacillin is a semisynthetic antibiotic in the same class as penicillin which is active against penicillinase-producing staphylococci as well as other gram-positive pathogens. Antibacterial drugs are also used commonly as a fixed-dose combination. The use of a fixed-dose combination of antibiotics is more common in developing countries. Ampicillin has also been used in combination with other antimicrobials, β-lactamase inhibitors such as Cloxacillin to improve its efficacy, broaden antimicrobial coverage and reduce the development of drug resistance. This combination demonstrates synergistic effect and helpful in the real-world treatment of a wide range of complicated infections including aerobic, anaerobic, and mixed infections. It is also utilized for the treatment of resistant infections, and for veterinary purposes. The synergistic effect of ampicillin and cloxacillin combination may be useful in those ampicillin-resistant strains as well as where the broader antibacterial coverage required. Real-world evidence required for its resurgence and effective antibacterial therapeutic alternative where a broad spectrum of antibiotics may consider future use and to avoid the further resistance..

Abstract : Gynaecomastia is the benign enlargement of male breast tissue (>2 cm palpable, firm, subareolar gland and ductal tissue) due to a relative drop in changes due to the influence of androgens or rise in the effects under the influence of estrogen. Pseudogynaecomastia on the other hand is enlargement of the breast due to deposition of excess adipose tissue. This disease is caused by multiple factors like Physiological factors, endocrine and non-endocrine factors, drug induced and idiopathic. This is a prospective observational study of 20 cases of male patients with enlarged breasts presented during the period between September 2018 to August 2020.Patients with enlarged breasts satisfying the inclusion criteria, attending Surgery OPD. The evaluation of gynaecomastia is a tricky process. A serial approach that begins with meticulous history taking and physical examination may eliminate the need for a cumbersome work- up. Appropriate clinical workup with appropriate investigations to confirm gynaecomastia and rule out malignancy is essential. The etiology is usually benign and treated conservatively or surgically depending on the grade of gynaecomastia. Pseudogynaecomastia is due to fat accumulation in the breast area, causing “female-like breasts”. This condition is most often present in overweight or obese males. The treatment ranges from weight loss via diet and exercise, to weight loss bypass procedures or male breast reduction surgery..

Abstract : The pressor response to direct laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation precipitating a significant haemodynamic response is an established phenomenon and thus, a cause of concern for anesthesiologist’s all over the world. Various methods have been tried to counter these effects and increase the safety of the procedure like, use of intravenous local anesthetic agents eg. Intravenous lignocaine, drugs like beta-blockers eg. Esmolol and Metoprolol, narcotic analgesics like Fentanyl, topical lignocaine spray, Gabapentin, alpha 2 agonist drugs like Dexmedetomidine and clonidine intravenously and many more. This current study was planned to compare intravenous lignocaine with intravenous Dexmedetomidine for attenuation of pressor response. a prospective randomized study was carried out on Total 60 patients which were equally, 30 each into Group L and Group D. Group L received injection Lignocaine intravenously 1.5 mg/kg, 3 minutes prior to induction and Group D received injection Dexmedetomidine 1mcg/kg, 10 minutes prior to induction. After analysing the results obtained, it was concluded that injection Dexmedetomidine 1mcg/kg, 10 minutes prior to induction is more efficient when compared to injection lignocaine 1.5mg/kg for attenuation of pressor response to laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation..

Abstract : Laparoscopic and open surgeries have been compared with conflicting results regarding their clinical outcome and systemic responses. The Alterations in serum levels of certain biochemical markers correlate directly with extent of tissue damage and inflammatory reaction. This study compares the intensity of tissue injury by assessing plasma C-reactive protein (CRP), lactic dehydrogenase (LDH), and cortisol in patients undergoing laparoscopic hysterectomy compared to abdominal hysterectomy. This study was conducted at Ain Shams University Maternity Hospital from May 2018 to February 2020. 80 women candidates for hysterectomy were recruited and randomized into two groups; group (A) included 40 cases who underwent abdominal hysterectomy, and group (B): included 40 cases that underwent laparoscopic hysterectomy. laparoscopic hysterectomy group has a significantly better postoperative recovery compared to the laparotomy group. However, the mean operation time was longer, but the duration of hospital stay was shorter and postoperative Hb drop was lower in the laparoscopy group compared with the laparotomy group. Regarding inflammatory response and tissue damage, CRP and LDH significantly increased postoperatively in both groups. Postoperative mean serum CRP and LDH were significantly higher in the laparotomy group (11.62±4.32, 272.21±76.67 respectively) compared to laparoscopy group (8.12±3.25, 153.53±40.46) (p<0.05). There were no significant differences in cortisol level. TLH is associated with less tissue trauma as assessed by lower postoperative CRP and LDH values, it also offers significant clinical benefits, including less blood loss and shorter hospital stay, it should be considered in women with benign gynecologic conditions, especially in experienced centers..

Abstract : Unfortunately, the risk of polio virus importation and spread remains high in Sudan, due to previous history of WPV importation to HOA from Nigeria and persistently low RI coverage. [67]. The knowledge of parents about immunization is a public health intervention that has greatly reduced mortality and morbidity globally [16]. o assesses the impact of awareness and health education on determinants of parent’s decision to vaccinated their children against poliovirus, the parent’s knowledge and attitude were also assessed pre-and post-intervention for those who received the health education (information sheet) about poliovirus disease and vaccine. A quasi-experimental pre- and post-facility-based study, the present study was conducted in three Sudanese cities (Khartoum City, Omdurman City, and Khartoum North city). total coverage of all parent’s during the period of data collection the number of participants in this study was 426. The data were collected by using the quantitative method through questionnaire to measure the score of knowledge regarding polio disease and vaccine, attitude of parents and vaccination status of their children based on construct of the theoretical model. The collected data was coded, organized, tabulated and analyzed. descriptive data was presented in table, pie and column. Chi-square was used for correlation between deferent variables, t-test was used for comparison between groups and pre- and post-intervention. For all tests, the significance level was set at p ≤ 0.05 In comparison between total parent’s knowledge among pre-and post, it was noticed that there is statistically significant difference between parent’s knowledge after post -test. P < 0.05 parent’s general attitude among pre-and post, it was also noticed there is statistical significant difference between parent’s general attitude to vaccine after post- test. P < 0.05. The internal reliability of the five constructs pertaining to the theoretical model was strong. Cronbach’s alpha was > 0.70. Chi-Square shows there is no statistically significant relationship between the five constructs pertaining to the theoretical model pre- and post-intervention P value = 0.859> a = 0.05. In a question on parental sources of information about vaccination, most parents cited their doctor (62.2%), for parents of vaccinated children compared with (52.4%) for parents of unvaccinated children. Chi-Square shows there was slightly increase in score of knowledge about poliovirus disease. (post- intervention) P < 0. 005 A small percentage of the parents had a knowledge deficiency regarding poliovirus disease However parents had not vaccinated their children against poliovirus in all cities ، and that because they believed their children was receiving enough vaccines, acceptability of a vaccine and successful implementation of immunization programs are critically dependent on parental knowledge, attitudes and beliefs regarding the disease and the vaccine. By raising awareness of parents، Parents decided to vaccinate their children. Activation the health care provider’s roles in awareness and health education parent’s awareness toward vaccination should be implemented as routine in vaccination days. Use of civil society and community leader’s efforts to increase the parent’s awareness about the importance of vaccination in reducing morbidity and mortality..
