Abstract : Publications on the attainment of lipid goals and adherence to healthy lifestyle among stroke survivors are scarce particularly in Asian countries. This study aimed to investigate the fasting serum lipid profiles and lifestyle habits among stroke survivors. Factors associated with suboptimal lipid profiles were determined. A cross-sectional study was conducted between May to August 2019 in three public hospitals in the East Coast Region of Peninsular Malaysia. Results of fasting serum lipid profiles were retrospectively traced within six months from the survey. Information on socio-demographic characteristics, clinical profiles, dietary adherence, and physical activity levels were acquired. Physical examinations measurements, such as weight, height, waist circumference, and blood pressure, were also taken during the survey. A total of 104 stroke survivors was recruited. Three-quarters of them had achieved the triglyceride and total cholesterol goals. 65.4% and 22.1% of them achieved the high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) (<1.8mmol/L) goals, respectively. Patients with a longer duration of stroke (AOR 9.75, 95% CI: 2.07, 45.86, P=0.040), elevated diastolic blood pressure (AOR 19.27, 95% CI: 4.66, 79.70, P<0.001), chronic kidney disease (AOR 3.30, 95% CI: 1.05, 10.34, P=0.041), abdominal obesity (AOR 3.14, 95% CI: 1.20, 8.21, P=0.020), excessive energy intake (AOR 0.34, 95% CI: 0.12, 0.95, P=0.036), and excessive saturated fatty acids intake (AOR 2.85, 95% CI: 1.02, 7.93, P=0.045) were significantly associated with suboptimal lipid profiles. In conclusion, the need for more intensive and integrated dyslipidemia management, including lipid-lowering therapy and therapeutic lifestyle changes in these high-risk patients, is highly warranted..

Abstract : The objective of this work was to take stock of mature benign dysembryomas of the ovary in Gabon. This was a retrospective study of the records of patients operated on for benign mature ovarian dysembryomas over a period of ten years (January 2002 to December 2011) in the Pathological Anatomy laboratories of the Faculty of Medicine. Owendo and the Army Training Hospital. Oophorectomy specimens with or without total hysterectomy were fixed with 10% buffered formalin or Bouin's fluid. After application of conventional histopathology techniques, the histological study was carried out by the pathologist. Mature benign ovarian dysembryomas in Gabon constituted 19% of the ovarian tumor population from January 2002 to December 2011. They affected women of all ages, especially those 25 to 40 years old, married or single. Gabonese made up the bulk of the sample, the most affected being the Fang, Nzébis and Punus populations. Tumors were found indifferently on the left and right and their expression was dominated by pelvic pain. the capital time of the orientation of the diagnosis. The latter was always postoperative after pathological examination. The tumors were of variable size and weight, and contained pilosebaceous material in the majority of cases. They were most often derived from the ectodermal embryonic leaflet. Mature benign dysembryomas of the ovary are frequent in Gabon, it is necessary to formally establish their diagnosis. This multidisciplinary approach is mandatory in order to avoid possible complications, especially in the event of the development of malignant lesions..

Abstract : The aim of the study is to determine the sex of the skull with Mastoid process and also to derive discriminant analysis formula for south Indian skulls. 70 adults skulls (38 male & 37 female) from Department of Anatomy, SRM Medical College is utilized for the study. The Mastoid length, anteroposterior diameter, Mediolateral diameter, surface was studied to calculate the size of the mastoid process. The measurement is recorded, tabulated andanalysedusing SPSS-14software. Univariate Analysis (Mean, Standard deviation & P Value), Student t test (to Discriminate Male and female) and Discriminant Function test was done to arrive the discriminant function formula and logistic regression to discriminate the sex of the mastoid (Wilks lamba, Eigen Value, Canonical Correlation, % of correct class. Mean values of mastoid length, Medio lateral diameter, anteroposterior diameter and surface area is high in males when compared to females. All four variables showed significant P – value. All four Bony variables correctly grouped male and female mastoid process to accuracy of 97.1% in Step wise analysis which was statistically significant. Left mastoid Surface is the good predictor of whether the skull belongs to male or female Discriminat Function D1 = 1 * (Left Mastoid Surface Area). Group Centroid: Male 0.485 (> -0.045), Female -0.576 (< - 0.045), Cut Score -0.045. All the four mastoid variables (Length, ML, AP & Surface Area) are good predictor for sex determination. The external efficacy of the study was checked by logistic regression which is robust against violation of normality and homoscedastictiy. Discriminant function equation had been derived for the south Indian population..

Abstract : In September 2019, the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia announced the government’s commitment to legislate an Act to sustain and improve the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of elderly. HRQoL refers to the perceived physical and mental health of an individual or a group over time. Hand grip strength (HGS) is an indicator for mobility limitation and HRQoL. This cross-sectional study was conducted to investigate the association between HGS and HRQoL among 106 adults aged from 30 to 60 years in Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA), Terengganu. Out of the total sample, 37.7% of respondents were males and 62.3% were females. The mean age of respondents was 38.44 ± 7.78 years. Sociodemographic characteristics, anthropometric measurements (weight, height, HGS), protein intake, physical activity (PA) level and HRQoL were assessed. The prevalence of respondents to have normal right HGS was 79.2% and normal left HGS was 69.8%. The participants were classified as healthy and unhealthy according to the EQ- 5D-5L index score. The prevalence of the healthy group was 67.9%. A significant difference was only found in HGS, protein intake and PA between genders, while significant association was only found between HGS and PA with HRQoL. The findings suggest that HGS is associated with HRQoL, whereas Low HGS is associated with impaired status of HRQoL by EQ-5D-5L index score and visual analogue scale (VAS) score in Malaysian males and females. More research is needed to evaluate the specific plausibility between HGS and HRQoL..

Abstract : The increase in life expectancy during the 20th century has been accompanied by an increase in the proportion and total number of people at the age above 90 and also a considerable number of centenarians. Clinician awareness of the Frailty syndrome, its biologic basis, and the increased risk for adverse outcomes can improve care for this most vulnerable subset of patients. If we are able to recognize and treat frailty in our clinical practice, it bring a newer perspective to geriatric medicine. This includes the study of the prevalence of frailty in elderly in the community and a specific care targeting this vulnerable population. This was a hospital based observational study and individuals more than 65 years were included. Physical frailty was defined in accordance with the frailty phenotype (Fried et al.2001) as a clinical syndrome in which the participant expressed three or more of the five criteria. Prevalence of frailty among elderly in the sample population was assessed. We also compared the prevalence of frailty between diabetic & non-diabetic groups. Frail subjects predominantly fell in the age group of 80 years and above. There was clustering of pre-frail subjects in the age group of 65 -69 years. The ratio of frail subjects - male: female ratio was 0.46:1. Proportion of study subjects with diabetes were more among frail than pre frail. But this association between diabetes and frailty was not statistically significant (p = 0.197). Frailty is prevalent in people aged more than 80 years and females..
