Abubakar Maina Waziri, Babagana Mustapha Abubakar, Sani Adamu, Ibrahim Eneye Sulaiman, Mohammed Gashua
Open Journal of Urology (OJU) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/oju.2016.63004
Abstract: Epispadias is a rare genitourinary malformation, more so is epispadias with intact prepuce. Incidence of epispadias with intact prepuce is not known however, there are few case reports and a case series. We present a 5-year-old boy brought to our facility by his parent for circumcision. Further evaluation revealed a short penis with broad base and intact prepuce. The preputial slit was dorsally oriented. On retracting the prepuce, there was corona epispadias with wide and healthy urethral plate. No meatal stenosis or chordee noticed. Other findings were normal. He had epispadias repair. The postoperative period was uneventful. Three months after operation, the prepuce was easily retractable over the penis and the penis was cosmetically acceptable.

Open Journal of Urology (OJU) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/oju.2019.93007
Abstract: Background: In general, sexuality is a taboo subject. It is more so in elderly people, as it is believed that they do not complain about sexual disorder. Objective: To analyse the sexual activity of elderly men in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Methods: This is a descriptive cross-sectional study on the sexual activity of men aged at least 60 years old. The study was carried out in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, from 1st June to 31st August 2014. All consenting males who were aged 60 and above at the time of the study were included. Results: We contacted 652 men, but only 200 responded i.e. a response rate of 30.67%. The age of the respondents was between 60 years and 89 years with a mean age of 66.38 ± 5.72 years. 80.15% of the respondents had at least one sexual intercourse in a month. Erection was considered satisfactory or very satisfactory in 45.8% (60/131) of respondents and 63.36% of them always had orgasm during sexual intercourse. Premature ejaculation was noted in 23.66% of respondents, while a decline in libido was noted in 82.44% of them. Conclusion: This study which is the first of its kind in Burkina Faso has helped reveal the importance of sexuality in the lives of elderly men.

Open Journal of Urology (OJU) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/oju.2015.52002
Abstract: Purpose: To study the epidemiology and treatment modalities of urolithiasis at Urology Department of University Hospital of Cotonou. Materials and Methods: It was a retrospective and descriptive study over a 10 years period ranging from January 1st, 2004 to December 31st, 2013. One hundred and two patients who were hospitalized for symptomatic urolithiasis at the Urology Department of University Hospital of Cotonou were enrolled. Results: Hospital incidence of urolithiasis was 3.7%. Patients mean age was 39.6 years (extremes: 10 years to 73 years). Male to female ratio was 2.2. The main reason for consultation was renal colic for 81 patients (79.4%). Average duration of symptoms at presentation was 5 months (range: 1 day to 10 years). A total of 173 stones were identified with an average size of 12 mm (range: 1 mm to 95 mm). Calyceal stones were seen in 32.9% of cases, renal pelvis stones in 21.4% of cases, ureteral stones in 34.1% and bladder stones in 11.5% of cases. Open surgery was the main treatment for stones that could not be managed medically. 50.8% of patients underwent surgery with extraction of 116 stones. This represented 67.1% of all stones. 9 patients (8.8%) had expelled their stone during urination. The postoperative course was uneventful in 77.5% of cases. Conclusion: Modern treatment options for urolithiasis remain rudimentary in our health facilities. Open surgery is still the main stay of treatment in our countries with limited resources.

African Journal of Primary Health Care & Family Medicine , 2010, DOI: 10.4102/phcfm.v2i1.94
Abstract: Background: The Kanuri tribe is found in the Lake Chad basin. However, the majority of the tribe lives in Borno State, Nigeria. Before this study was undertaken, factors related to fertility decisions among the tribe were not known. Objectives: This study is aimed at describing and documenting the sociocultural factors affecting decisions related to fertility among the Kanuri tribe. Method: The study applied the qualitative research method. In-depth interviews and focus-group discussions were used as data collection methods. Analysis was done manually. Results: Children among the Kanuri were highly valued and desired irrespective of their gender. The ideal family size, according to most of the respondents, was 16 children. Kanuri men are polygamous and can marry up to four wives in order to form large families. However, it is an abomination among Kanuri women to fall pregnant in quick succession; a phenomenon they termed konkomi. Other reasons for child-spacing were related to child welfare and maternal well-being. Methods for child-spacing included prolonged breastfeeding (Nganji yaye), ornaments in various forms and shapes, spiritual invocations and dried herbs (Nganji Yandeye). Few Kanuri women practiced modern methods of family planning. Conclusion: Trends in fertility among the Kanuri tribe need to be monitored regularly and appropriate measures be taken to introduce and promote modern family planning and child health services to ensure a healthier family life.

Abstract: The importance of lime application to ameliorate acidity on paddy field has been reviewed. Emphasis is placed on acid sulfate commonly found in Southeast Asia and other related areas to which reference could be found. Most of the authors show that in acid sulfate soils, high content of Al caused adverse effect to rice growth. Application of lime precipitates Al and Fe in the soil and result in higher rice yield. The paper specifically covers the extent and types of acid sulfate soils, amelioration using lime and other combinations in rice cultivation and management.

Abstract: Apert syndrome, also known as acrocephalosyndactyly, is one of the causes of craniofacial syndrome or deformity. It is a rare congenital disorder characterized by premature fusion of cranial sutures (craniosynostosis), malformation of skull, hands, face and feet. This congenital deformity has incidence of 1/50,000 to 1/80,000 live births and is an autosomal dominant in inheritance. Apert syndrome, fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) and the missense substitution mutations occur at adjacent amino acids (i.e. Ser252Trp, Ser 252Phe, Pro253Arg) between the second and third extra cellular immunoglobulin domain of FGFR2, which maps to chromosome bands 10q26. Increased paternal age has been implicated in the development of Apert syndrome. The syndrome has to be thoroughly evaluated as early definitive diagnosis is important in order to distinguish Apert syndrome from other forms of craniosynostosis like Carpenter syndrome, Crouzon disease, Pfeiffer and Saethre-Chotzen syndrome. It is generally accepted that management of Apert syndrome is multidisciplinary in approach, which should compose of neonatologists, neurosurgeons, craniofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, orthodontists, orthopaedic surgeons, ophthalmologists, radiologists, geneticists, clinical psychologists and speech and language pathologists for the effective management of this condition. Early diagnosis and treatment is important because Apert syndrome when treated early has good prognosis in adult life.

Open Journal of Orthopedics (OJO) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojo.2014.48033
Abstract: Introduction: Amputation is the removal of a body part through a bone, while disarticulation is a removal of a part through a joint. This common procedure has different causes depending on the geographical locations and cultural practices. These ranges from dead body part to malignancy. Our study focused on the profile of the amputees including the biodata, causes and the financial consequences of the procedure. Material and Methods: The case notes of all patients who had amputation from 1998-2012 (15 years) were collected and the biodata, intra-operative diagnosis, parts amputated and duration of hospital stay were retrospectively analysed. Results: One hundred and ninety six patients had various types of amputations for the duration of our study. 159 (81.12%) were males while 37 (18.88%) were females. 68 (34.69%) patients had below knee amputation. 54 (27.55%) had above knee amputation. 27 (13.78%) had above elbow amputation. 18 (9.18%) patients had below elbow amputation, while 30 (15.30%) patients had other forms of amputations. The highest number of amputees (72 patients) was within the age range of 21 - 30 yr and the least number (5 patients) was within the age range of 51 - 60 yr. The highest number of amputation (71 patients) was due to complications from by traditional bone setters intervention. Conclusion: In our study, we found that most cases were males with a mean age of 35 years and majority (34.69%) had below knee amputation, and that most cases suffered vascular occlusion leading to gangrene.
Resource Use Efficiency in Rice Production in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State, Nigeria
BA Tijani, M Abubakar, KM Benisheik, AB Mustapha
Nigerian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: The study was carried-out on resource use efficiency in rice production in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State, Nigeria. Data were obtained using structured questionnaire. Five (5) wards were purposely selected out of the twelve (12) wards to reflect areas where rice is mainly grown. A total of 100 respondents were proportionately selected from the five (5) wards for the analysis. Descriptive statistics and production function were used as analytical tools. The result indicates that majority (87%) were male, most (54%) had farm size less than 2 hectares. Also, majority (60%) indicated their major occupation as farming, most (51%) had no formal education while, (37%) had between 11–30 years of farming experience. The results of resource use efficiency in rice production showed that resources such as fertilizer, hired labour and rented land were under-utilized. The sum of elasticities of production indicates that there is increasing return to scale. It was recommended that farmers should be advised to increase use of rented land, improved rice seed, of fertilizer, hired and mechanized labours and chemicals. Farmers should also be encouraged to actively participate in adult education extension programme to acquire knowledge on how to use their farm resources efficiently in rice production.

African Journal of Paediatric Surgery , 2011,
Abstract: Background: Despite the advances in management, congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) has continued to pose a significant challenge to paediatric surgeons. This is amplified in a setting like ours where there is a dearth of facilities to cope with the problem of CDH. This study was undertaken to highlight the peculiarities of the management of CDH in a poor resource setting. Methods: All confirmed cases of CDH were prospectively documented from 2003 till date. Results: Seven children were treated from 2003 till date. The diaphragmatic defect was on the left side in six (83.8%) and on the right side in one (17.7%). All the patients had primary closure of the defect without patch via an abdominal approach. The three patients presenting at birth died while the remaining four patients survived. Conclusion: With inadequate neonatal intensive care facilities, the severe early presenting CDH has a dismal prognosis. In contrast, the late presenting CDH poses more diagnostic challenges; but once identified and appropriate treatment instituted, it has an excellent prognosis. We recommend that physicians should include CDH in the differential diagnosis of patients with birth asphyxia and in patients with chronic respiratory symptoms with failure to thrive.

International Journal of Tropical Medicine , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/ijtmed.2010.86.88
Abstract: The records of slaughtered camels at the Maiduguri abattoir was evaluated over a 10 year period between 2000 and 2009 with the aim of determining foetal wastage due to the slaughter of pregnant camels. Out of the 124,898 camels slaughtered during the study period, 69,603 (55.7%) were females. A total of 2,382 foetuses were recovered which represented a foetal recovery rate of 3.42%. The foetal wastage in deferent seasons of the year, shows that 947 (39.8%) were recovered during rainy season and 1,435 (60.2%) during dry season. Estimated economic loss due to the slaughter of pregnant camels in Maiduguri abattoir stands at N25, 725,600.00 during the period of 10 years. It was concluded that legislative lows against the slaughter of pregnant animals should be enforced. Adequate veterinary ante-mortem inspection, literacy campaign amongst camel s rearers and butchers should be intensified as an effort to improve camel population in Nigeria.
