Cardiovascular diseases actually are a real public health concern all over the world and more specifically in the developing countries. The aim of this study was to analyze the causes and factors associated to deaths due to cardiovascular diseases in medicine and medical emergencies departments at the Regional Hospital (RH) of Koudougou to contribute to treatment improvement. This study was a retrospective and descriptive study conducted over a period of 12 months from January 1st 2014 to December 31st, 2014. This study took place in medicine and medical emergencies departments within the Regional Hospital of Koudougou. We have recorded 282 deceased persons. We have selected 275 deceased persons according to our inclusion criteria. Deaths due to cardiovascular pathologies accounted for 73 cases corresponding to 26.55%. Sex ratio was estimated at 1.8. Patients’ average age was estimated at 62 ± 17.6 years. Forty patients corresponding to 54.8% were referred and 80% of them came from health and social promotion centers. Strokes representing 32.8% were the hypotheses mentioned upon admission. State of shock represented 32.8% of the immediate causes of death. Sixty-four point four percent of patients had high blood pressure as the most frequent initial death cause (47 cases).Thirty five cases of premature deaths, corresponding to 47.9% were observed. Cardiovascular diseases are a real public health concern in our countries undergoing an epidemiological transition. Mortality related to these diseases in Koudougou RH has been widely dominated by high blood pressure. This mortality can be reduced through preventive actions meant for the population including a reorganization of health system and hospital services to improve care quality.

Hypertension, chronic and silent disease, is a public health problem. The objective of this survey was to assess the prevalence of hypertension in population in the city of Koudougou. This deals with a population survey held in one day consisting of controlling blood pressure and glycaemia among patients having values above the normal ones. All volunteering patients were included in the study. We screened 497 patients during the survey. The average age of patients was 36 ± 12.4 years with extreme of 18 and 75 years. The sex ratio was 1.1. The average systolic blood pressure was 118 ± 21.5 mmHg with extreme of 90 and 200 and the average diastolic blood pressure was 70.8 ± 11 mmHg with extreme of 50 and 100. The frequency of patients suffering from hypertension was 21.6% and that of the diabetic patients was 19%. The average age of patients suffering from hypertension was 43.9 ± 14 years against 37.5 ± 12.8 years for patients suffering from diabetes. During the previous year, 49% (n = 244) had controlled their blood pressure against 51% of cases who controlled theirs during a consultation. 16.3% of patients had their blood sugar controlled (n = 81) against 43.4% who had theirs controlled during a consultation. Hypertension is an under-diagnosed disease despite the available diagnostic tools such as self-measurement. Screening programs should be set up to establish early diagnosis of high blood pressure.

Valvular heart diseases during pregnancy are complex with symptoms likely to affect patient’s life quality, and endanger both mother’s and child’s life. Our survey aims at studying the combination of valvular heart diseases with pregnancy at University Hospital Yalgado Ouedraogo. This study was a cross-sectional study conducted from January 1st, 2015 to March 31st, 2016 in the delivery room of gynecology and obstetrics department. Inclusion criteria were: the presence of acquired and known valvular heart diseases followed-up or not; suspected valvular heart disease confirmed by a Doppler echocardiography and patient’s consent to take part to the study. Twelve patients were involved in the study. The average age was 27.5 ± 3.9 years (extremes of 21 and 34 years). The average gestational age at the delivery time was 35 ± 4.7 weeks of amenorrhea with extremes reaching 25 and 39 weeks. None of the study patients were previously followed-up and treated for valvular heart diseases before pregnancy. Mitral disease was found among four patients. Seven cases had vaginal delivery. Two cases of spontaneous abortion were observed. We had seven hypotrophy newborns with an average weight of 2360 g at birth. Two patients suffering from congestive heart failure with a full type arrhythmia by atrial fibrillation were hospitalized in cardiology department. No death was reported during our study. Rheumatic valvular diseases are common among pregnant women. The cardiologist should plan pregnancies of patients suffering from valvular heart diseases. Treatment of those patients goes through the prevention of acute rheumatoid arthritis including a joint collaboration between cardiologists and gynecologists.

Introduction: Vasopressive amines are frequently used in cardioology. The aim of our work was to evaluate the practical modalities of use of amines in the cardiology department of University Hospital Yalgado Ouédraogo. Patients and Methods: We conducted a prospective observational study for 6 months, from 01 June to 31 November 2013, including all patients treated with vasopressive amines. We were interested in the different clinical pictures, the indications, the choice of amines, and the practical application of the treatment. Results: Fifty patients were included in the study; the mean age was 58 ± 17.6. The sex ratio was 0.85. Hypertensive heart disease was the underlying cardiac disease in 34% of cases. A known chronic heart failure was observed in 62% of cases. Clinical admission tables were dominated by overall heart failure (74%). Vascular collapse (38%) and shock (36%) were the main indications of treatment. Severe alterations in left ventricular systolic function were found in 74% of cases. Dobutamine was the amine of choice (90%). The average time to start treatment was 96.32 minutes (range 15-660 minutes). The time to relay between syringes was more than ten minutes in 72% of the cases, and the nurses’ unavailability was the main cause. Monitoring was manual in almost all cases. The average duration of treatment was 6.64 days. Treatment-related incidents were observed in 26% of cases. The intra-hospital mortality of patients with amines was 48%. Conclusion: The indications of vasopressive amines in the cardiology department are close to the international recommendations. But this treatment suffers in its practical application. The duration of treatment remains excessive but is explained by the lack of therapeutic alternative.

Introduction: This study aimed at describing the socio-economic, diagnostic, and progressive features of patients evacuated thanks to philanthropic sponsors. Patients and methods: all evacuated patients, contacted through the phone and interviewed, were included in the study. A questionnaire helped in collecting data which were analyzed through the software Epi-Info (version 7). Outcomes: A total of 63 patients out of 134 were included in the study among which there are 22 adults and 41 children. The sex-ratio was 1.30. Patients living in Ouagadougou accounted for 79% of cases. The children’s average age at evacuation was 3.58 ± 3.86 years against 27.52 ± 12.54 years for adults. Ventricular septal defects among children (58.53%) and mitral valve diseases among adults (72.72%) were the main diagnoses at the time of evacuation. The average fall was 47 months for children, and 54 months for adults in the post-operative period. 68% of adults had an income below 50,000 FCFA per month. The evacuation average cost was estimated at 21,083,000 FCFA per patient, corresponding to 2,825,122,000 FCA over 10 years. Each adult patient spent an average of 15,000 FCFA per month for the follow up, against 8725 FCFA for children. 16% of patients were lost of sight in the post-operative. Conclusion: Philanthropic sponsors significantly contribute to the management of cardiac patients, and their efforts should be supported by a better monitoring. Setting-up cardiac surgery and interventional cardiology in Burkina Faso are required to address these health shortcomings.

Background: Hypertension is a major public health concern in Burkina Faso. Its management relies on in-office medical setting blood pressure monitoring which is known to be an imperfect diagnosis tool. Objective: This study aims to assess the contribution of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in the management of hypertension at Blaise Compaoré University Hospital. Methods: A monocentric descriptive retrospective study was conducted in the cardiology outpatient unit of Blaise Compaoré University Hospital. Patients aged at least 18 years who underwent ambulatory blood pressure monitoring between March 2013 and June 2015 were enrolled. Hypertension was defined as follows: average blood pressure over 24 hours > 130/80 mmHg, or diurnal blood pressure > 135/85 mmHg, or nocturnal blood pressure >120/70 mmHg. Data were analyzed using the SPSS 20.0 software. The threshold for significance was set at 5% for a validity interval at 95%. Chi square test was used for?the statistical analysis. Results: A total of 122 patients were enrolled. The main reasons for ambulatory monitoring were the evaluation of hypertensive therapy (51.6%) and the diagnosis confirmation (39.3%). The results of the ambulatory monitoring found 61.4% of the patients with hypertension and 37.7% with normal blood pressure. A treatment adjustment was made for 36.1% of the patients; an initiation of antihypertensive therapy was undertaken for 24.6%, an abstention from drug therapy was recommended?for 23.8%,?and the pursuit of previous treatment for 13.1% of the patients. Conclusion: Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring should be used more often in order to optimize the management of hypertension in our current practice.

Objective: Our study aimed at assessing the quality of life (QoL) of patients treated for chronic heart failure (HF), and analyzing the impact of certain factors on that QoL, in the cardiology department of Yalgado Ouédraogo University Hospital of Ouagadougou. Means and Method: It was a descriptive cross-sectional study, performed over a six-month period from May to October 2016. In the study, patients with age over 18 years were included, followed up for chronic HF for at least six months in the outpatient unit, from January 1st to December 31st 2015. The questionnaire “Minnesota Living with Heart Failure” was used to assess the QoL. Results: Two hundred and four patients were enrolled. Most of them were living in Ouagadougou (82.8%). Sex ratio was 0.98, and mean age was 56.06 16.37 years. The mean overall QoL score was 17.8 16.5. QoL was considered good in its three dimensions, in more than 70% of patients. Looking at the mean scores, the male patients, the patients living in rural and semi-urban areas, the patients with impaired left ventricular ejection fraction and those with severe or end-stage renal failure had significant QoL impairment. Multiple linear regression reported significant correlation between QoL impairment and the following factors (p value < 0.05 for all variables): marital life, number of hospitalizations for acute HF, and NYHA functional stage. Conclusion: Marital life, number of hospitalizations for acute decompensation, and NYHA functional stage were predictive factors of QoL impairment. MLHF questionnaire should be commonly used to assess the efficiency of HF management. Self administration instead of assistance in filling the questionnaire, could insure a more objective valuation of QoL.

Background: We sought the value of the six-minute walk test distance in predicting re-admission in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) in the department of cardiology, Yalgado Ouédraogo University Hospital, Ouaga-dougou, Burkina Faso. Methods: We did a prospective observational study in patients hospitalized with acute decompensated heart failure and who underwent a 6-minute walk test (6-MWT) at their discharge from hospital. The primary end-point was hospital re-admission for heart failure de-compensation. Results: Sixty-one patients (52% females, mean age 46.9 ± 14.1 years, mean left ventricular ejection fraction 32.4 ± 8.2%, mean 6-MWT distance 336.3 ± 65 meters) were followed-up for a 277.6 ± 129.8 days’ period. Twenty-one patients (45.3 percent person-years) were re-admitted. Re-admitted patients had shorter 6-MWT distance (p = 0.007) and were more likely to die than those who were not re-admitted (RR = 1.72, 95% CI = 1.13 - 2.62, p = 0.003). Multivariate Cox regression analysis showed that re-admission was independently predicted by shorter 6-MWT distance (p < 0.001), New York Heart Association class III (p = 0.03), older age p = 0.03) and lower LVEF (p = 0.02). Conclusion: Distance covered during the six-minute walk test is an independent predictor of hospital re-admission for heart failure decompensation in patients with chronic heart failure.
Hydrological Science and Its Connection to Religion in Ancient Egypt under the Pharaohs  [PDF]

Abstract: The history of water management in the Fertile Crescentis closely related to the religion. This is most clear in ancientEgyptin pharaonic time. The class of priests serving under the pharaoh had also many other administrative duties, they had good skill in science, collected hydrological and astronomical data and used it to levy taxes and predict the floods that irrigated the arable land. The special hydrological features of the riverNilemake it rather predictable in behavior compared to other major rivers of the region. In this social position the priests had great influence and could use it to stop the pharaoh Ikhnaton in his attempt to establish a monotheistic religion by ousting Amon-Ra and replacing him with Aton. Social life was very colorful at pharaohs’ court and the various arts and festivals flourished. The most remarkable of these was the Opet festival where pharaoh himself was the leading figure together with the statues of the gods. The festival was to last 10 days and during that time the riverNilewas to change color from grayish to reddish and thereby mark the beginning of the life-giving flood and bear witness to the good relations between the king and the divine powers. This kind of event, an annual prayer by the king to the gods for good harvest was well known in many societies, but it shows the remarkable skills of the Amon-Ra priest that they were ready to predict the onset of theNileflood within ten days and get away with it.

Introduction: The management of congenital heart diseases in countries with limited technical facilities poses real problems to practitioners. Yet, a good medical follow- up permits to improve these children’s life quality before any eventual surgery. Our study aims at examining the evolutionary and prognostic aspects of these congenital heart diseases in order to understand their evolution in our context. Materials and Methods: Our work is a continuation of a prospective, transversal and descriptive survey concerning all the children with congenital heart diseases in hospitalization or in consultation led from January 1st 2012 to December 31st 2012 in the Charles De Gaulle Center Pediatric Teaching Hospital (CDG-PTH) in Ouagadougou. Results: In 2012, we kept under observation 101 cases of congenital heart diseases representing 69.18% of the 146 cases of heart diseases with an impact of 0.79% of the 12,838 patients who were admitted at CDG-PTH. The interventricular septal defect occupied the first place of all malformative heart diseases with 43.56% of cases. The average age of patients at the moment of the diagnosis was 17 months old with extremes ranging from two (2) days old to fifteen (15) years old. The sex-ratio was 1.06. Throughout the follow-up of the children until the end of the six months’ survey, it was possible for us to meet again 52 patients, we had no longer been in touch with 22 patients and 27 were dead. At the moment of the diagnosis, surgical treatment was recommended for 63.37% of the patients (64 cases) and only 7.81% (5 cases) were operated. The complicated cases were: Eisenmenger syndrome (6 cases representing 5.94%). We recorded a rate of 26.73% of death. Conclusion: Congenital heart diseases are relatively common at CDG-PTH. The high rate of mortality noticed is due to the lack of heart surgery and catheterism units in our country.
