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.

Abstract : Schwannoma is a peripheral nerve sheath tumor, a benign tumor that grows slowly from neural fairy cells in the nerve sheath. These tumors can cause neurological deficits because of their intradural location and suppress the spinal cord so it needs to be decompressed to prevent permanent nerve damage. We reported one case of  intradural thoracal schwannoma with neurologic deficit of paraplegia inferior. We have performed a laminectomy – posterior durotomy and tumor excision with posterior approach without intraoperative monitoring. The result is a return of motoric and sensoric improvement. The patient was satisfied with the result.

Abstract : This research was planned to assess the different surface treatments effects on the microleakage of the flexible resin at two metals: Co-Cr and Ni-Cr alloys interface. Sixty rectangular samples [50mm x 25mm x 1mm] length, width, thickness respectively. They were prepared with a grid pattern which was formed 50 squares. every sample was divided to experimental half [with treatment] and a control half [without treatment]. There were 2main groups according to the alloy’s kind: 30samples for Cobalt-Chromium alloy and 30samples for Nickel-Chromium alloy. Each main group were further subdivided into 3 subgroups according to the type of surface treatments: fiber laser surface treatment Z-prime plus, or combination of them [fiber laser +Z-prime]. All of them were thermocycle then the test was done. The collected data was analyzed by independent one-way ANOVA, T-test, and LSD-test at a significance level [p-value≤0.05]. A result was showed that the subgroups of combination [fiber laser surface treatment and Z- Prime] for both Co-Cr and Ni-Cr alloys had the least microleakage values, followed by the Z-prime surface treatment alone. The highest value was seen in laser-treated subgroups. Both laser-treated with Z-Prime for two Co-Cr and Ni-Cr alloys revealed the highest reduction in microleakage than other types of surface treatments.

Abstract : The 6-minute walk test (6MWT) is a simple, reliable, and non-invasive method potentially used in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. However, the performance of 6MWT in patients with CAD data are limited. This study aimed to describe distance, hemodynamic consequences, symptoms, and arrhythmias related the 6MWT in CAD patients. This was a retrospective cross-sectional study by retrieving medical records. We consecutively recruited all CAD patients without surgical treatment and underwent the 6MWT before discharge from the hospital in the period of August until September 2019. Data were analysed with the paired T-test using SPSS version 21.0. We enrolled 75 CAD patients aged 57.95±10.86 years old, 84.2% of them were male with BMI of 26.09±6.50 kg/m-2. Of all subjects, 34.7% of patients were CAD 1 vessel disease (VD), 26.7% were CAD 2VD, and 38.7% were CAD 3VD. The average 6- minute walk distance achieved was 355.12±111.90 meters, with predicted VO2 max 14.26 ±2.98 ml/kg/minute and the average of patients’ functional capacity was 4.22±0.91 METs. There were significant increases in systolic blood pressure (BP) (119.76±19.42mmHg to 124.04±18.13mmHg, p= 0.001), diastolic BP (75.29±9.89mmHg to 77.65±10.89mmHg, p=0.004), heart rate (78.53±13.61bpm to 87.55±13.18 bpm, p<0.001), respiration rate (19.73±1.06 per minute to 20.97±1.78 per minute, p<0.001), and reduction of peripheral oxygen saturation (SpO2) (97.03±1.39% to 96.36±1.65%, p<0.001). Several complications occurred during the 6MWT including angina (1.3%), dyspnea (1.3%), dizziness (2.6%), nausea (1.3%), lower limbs discomfort (2.6%), systolic BP reduction≥10 mmHg (10.6%), desaturation (SpO2<90%) (1.3%). ST-segment depression occurred in 1.3% patients and ventricular extra-systoles (VES) appeared in 11.9% patients. The 6-minute walk test distance achieved in CAD patients is modest. The 6MWT significantly affects hemodynamic status, causes mild symptoms and transient mild arrhythmias.

Abstract : As one of the most antibiotic resistant bacteria, Acinetobacter baumannii (A.baumannii) becoming a serious threat to the global society, moreover due to the emerging of XDR A.baumannii. The study aimed to figure the A.baumannii resistance pattern and XDR A.baumannii’ prevalence, since there is only limited study published for this topic in Indonesia.We analyzed the antimicrobial agents’ usage for acquisition of A.baumannii in an observational descriptive study. This study conducted in one of the national referral hospitals, Central Java-Indonesia. We used data registered between January 2017 until December 2018, from microbiology laboratory which using VITEK® 2 as an antimicrobial susceptibility testing system. We presented the results using data classification and tabulation, which being analyzed from 699 samples that isolated from various specimens. The antibiotics susceptibility result of A.baumannii for group A primary antibiotics were: ampicillin-sulbactam 47.2% resistant; ceftazidime 65.5% resistant; ciprofloxacin 63.2% resistant; meropenem 47.7% resistant; gentamicin 60.4% resistant. While for group B primary antibiotics were: amikacin 17.9% resistant; piperacillin-tazobactam 61.7% resistant; cefepime 63.1% resistant; ceftriaxone 91% resistant; trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole 18.5% resistant. Most A.baumannii were found in sputum (57.3%) and from pulmonology department (37.2 %). Among all specimens 90.6% were MDR and 9.4% were XDR A.baumannii. The antibiotics chosen for A.baumannii infections in group A were on the warning zone according to the hospital consortium, while in group B only amikacin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole were still sensitive. The high percentage of MDR and the finding of XDR A.baumannii should raise awareness among all the healthcare providers in Indonesia..
