Abstract : The posteromedial fragment in bicondylar tibial plateau fractures. it's often significant displacement, seems to be under-recognized or recognized and undertreated. The posteromedial approach provides access to the posteromedial and posterior aspects of the proximal tibia, Tibial plateau fractures with a posteromedial fragment (Schz IV, V, and VI) can be effectively managed by the posteromedial approach. Between May 2017 and February 2019, 40 patients with a mean age of 41 years (Range from 21-64 years) with tibial plateau fractures. Patients were diagnosed clinically, checked with standard X-rays; CT was done for all cases. Patients were treated by ORIF through a posteromedial approach with or without additional screws or plate, a screw from a lateral side. Radiological evaluation and functional assessment were done according to the Rasmussen Knee score. Patients were followed-up for an average of 12 months. Union was achieved in all patients with the total Functional Rasmussen Knee score at last follow-up was (Excellent 77.5. %, good 22.5%). The Total Anatomical Rasmussen Knee score at last follow-up was (Excellent 55%, Good 37.5%, Fair 7.5%). Mean Functional Rasmussen Knee score of patients had (Schatzker IV fractures) was Excellent 100%, however, it was Excellent 66.6%, Good 33,3% in those had (Schatzker V fractures) and was Excellent 33,3%, good 66.6 in those had (Schatzker VI fractures). Surgical treatment of tibial plateau fractures through a posteromedial approach that was evaluated in our study can lead to a good functional and anatomical outcome and considered an effective safe approach.

Abstract : The Purpose is to conduct to review characteristics of polycystic ovary syndrome using ultrasonography in Saudi female population through which incidence of infertility caused by PCOS has been increased. Across sectional clinical study was conducted at two Hospitals in Saudi Arabia during period from January-December 2018. One hundred seventy-six women were examined for PCOS, using GE Healthcare Ultrasonography. The main symptoms, pelvic pain, acne and hirsutism. For primary infertility the higher number of patients who had pelvic pain, 18 and 8 patients respectively. For secondary infertility the higher frequency of pelvic pain then patients with no sign 21 and 18 patients respectively. The ultrasound approach was Transvaginal and Transabdominal. And the number of follicles, using TA approach no follicle in 61 patients, < 10 follicles in 38 patients and >10 follicles in 29 patients. Using TV approach, no follicle in18 patients, <10 follicles in 20 patients and > 10 follicles in 10 patients. A high prevalence of PCOS was found among women of the sample population in the present study that may require urgent health education interventions in order to prevent the associated consequences.

Abstract : Area of nursing sciences is rapidly growing and updating. This necessity the need to graduate nurse who have the talent of self-directed learning and to incorporate this talent with her learning style. For any professional nurse, continues self-development through self-directed learning is the milestone of her excellence. Consequently, this will be reflected on the quality of nursing care. To investigate the relationship between learning style and readiness for self-directed learning among nursing students at Najran University. Descriptive correlational research design. Nursing colleges at Najran University. Comprehensive sample of all nursing students registered on the nursing program during the second semester 2019. Three tools were used for data collection: Sociodemographic and academic history questionnaire, a modified version of C.I.T.E instrument to asses learning styles and Self-Directed Learning Readiness Scale for Nursing Education. Auditory-Visual-Kinesthetic and social individual were major learning style among 87.3% and 84.8% of the nursing student, respectively. Furthermore, 79.2% of them have high readiness for self-directed learning. The mean score for self-control (40.7919± 5.81977) is higher than self-management (39.1371± 6.04123) and desire for learning (40.7919± 5.81977) was the least once. A statistically significant relations between different learning styles and RSDL total score and its constructs was observed. Largest proportion of nursing students at Najran University have high readiness for self-directed learning which is related to the common learning styles among them. Efforts should be directed to enhance self-directed learning among them.

Abstract : Based on the comprehensive stem cells (SCs) research results, many researchers have assumed that the cells could possibly create treatment and management for several diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancers, and igniting optimism of developing SCs replacement treatment in a health setting. Nurses can play a significant role in giving information to the community about SCs. Therefore, the knowledge given from nurses to patients must be accurate and balanced. Evaluate maternity nurses’ knowledge and attitude regarding SCs and cord blood collection. Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried on a convenience sample of maternity nurses (n= 198) worked in maternity and children hospital (MCH), Najran city. A self-administrated questionnaire was used which contains three main parts; part I: Demographic data, part II: knowledge assessment toward SCs and cord blood collection, and part III: Modified Likert scale to assess nurses’ attitude as regard to SCs and cord blood collection. About two-third (69.7%) of nurses had fair knowledge about SCs and cord blood collection and only 30.3% of them had good knowledge. About 43.9% of them exhibited positive attitude regarding SCs. Moreover, there was a significant relationship (FET= 9.274, p= 0.009) between maternity nurses' knowledge and their attitude. Maternity nurses in MCH Najran had fair knowledge and a positive attitude toward SCs and cord blood collection. Consequently, the study recommends implementing in-services training programs related to SCs and cord blood collection for the nurses to enhance their information and motivate a more positive attitude.

Abstract : Ideally the compounding drug is made from pure active substances but in reality, the prescribed drug as an extemporaneous compounding is in a form of factory finished drug dosage form, which should be intended for adult then formulated and adjusted to the conditions of patients. The Food Drug Administration (FDA) is aware of quality problems of drugs prescribed; one of the problems is contamination. This study aims to determine the microbial contamination in the dosage of non-sterile semi-solid extemporaneous compounding prescribed in primary health care centers. This study was an experimental observation conducted on primary health care centers by taking the prescriptions of semi-solid dosage forms used as samples. Hydrocortison cream and Gentamycin by microbial testing used chosen media for 5 pathogenic microbes, namely Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella spp., Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans. Data analysis was carried out descriptively by comparing the results of the study with the requirements contained in United States Pharmacopeia (USP). Based on USP requirements, there were three semi-solid non-sterile dosage forms of extemporaneous compounding from primary health care centers A, B and D that have not meet the requirements because from the microbial test results it was found bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa and/or Staphylococcus aureus.
