Abdul Salam Abdul Rahman Hawis, Iacob Gabriel
Open Journal of Modern Neurosurgery (OJMN) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojmn.2019.91009
Abstract: Aim: To compare between classic open surgeries and minimally invasive surgeries in Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. Methods: A comparative descriptive study, involved 117 patients suffering from lumbar canal stenosis, aged between 40 - 70 years; admitted to department of Neurosurgery from March 2011 till august 2016 in King Fahad Hospital in Saudi Arabia. Study groups are consisted of group A as patients managed with classical laminectomy, group B as patients managed with endoscopic spinal procedures and group C as patients managed with microscopic decompression facilitated by the Metrex Tubular System. SPSS was used in data entry and analysis, and ethical considerations taken into consideration and participants filled the required inform consents. Results: Age of particaoncet ranged from 45 - 63 years, Mean +/ 50. The degenerative canal stenosis with acute disc single level (cauda equina syndrome) was the most common type of lumbar canal stenosis encountered in group A; the unilateral foraminal and lateral recess stenosis without disc prolapse was the most common type of lumbar canal stenosis encountered in group B; while the unilateral foraminal and lateral recess stenosis without disc prolapse was the most common type of lumbar canal stenosis encountered in group C. Classic laminectomy and disectomy used mostly in group A; endoscopic unilateral decompression lamino-foraminotomy without discectomy used mostly in group B and bilateral microscopic laminectomy without discectomy followed by unilateral microscopic laminoforaminotomy without discectomy used mostly in group C. Mean of operation duration was the highest in both gender of group A, followed by group B, then group C. Unintended durotomy was the most common intra operative complications occurred in the whole study especially in group A. Mean of blood lost was the highest in both gender of group A, followed by group B, then group C. Postop complications in the patients of study groups were the highest in group A (33.3%), followed by group B (8.5%) and then group C (2%). Conclusion: Microscopic decompression facilitated by the Metrex Tubular System is the most effective technique of Surgery for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis and the least intra-operative and post-operative complications.

Temporal Three-Dimensional Ontology for Geographical Information Science (GIS)—A Review  [PDF]
Uznir Ujang, Alias Abdul Rahman
Journal of Geographic Information System (JGIS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jgis.2013.53030

While the use of three-dimensional (3D) geographical information system (GIS) is becoming in rapid development and being used in various fields such as urban and regional planning, disaster management and planning, mobile navigation and etc., commercial and open source GIS software packages tend to offer 3D-GIS functionalities for their products. On the basis, GIS analysis functions are to provide information with respect to geographical location and by having 3D spatial data as an input, it will give advantages in providing horizontal position information. However, to analyze moving objects (temporal) in 3D seems not an easy task and not fully supported by current GIS platform packages. Previously in two-dimensional (2D) GIS practice, main issue addressed by researchers in managing temporal spatial objects is GIS packages were designed based on hardware and software constraints whereby it should be based on the temporal spatial objects ontology. Nowadays, the trend of managing temporal 3D data is via 3D spatial simulation or animation. This approach will not in assistance for GIS users in conducting spatial queries. Without having a suitable ontology and valid topological data structure for temporal 3D data, it will cause repetitive of temporal data (redundancy) and complications in executing spatial analysis in 3D environment. Therefore this paper focuses on the ontology for managing moving 3D spatial objects (i.e. air pollution, flood). The characteristics of moving objects were reviewed thoroughly by categorizing it based on its different appearances. Moreover, existing methods in managing temporal database were addressed and discussed for its practicalities. Another important aspect in managing temporal 3D objects is the implementation of topological data structures for 3D spatial objects were reviewed. In the last section of this paper it summarized the issues and further ideas towards implementing and managing temporal 3D spatial objects in GIS based on the Geoinformation Ontology (GeO).

A Perverse Sheaf Approach Toward a Cohomology Theory for String Theory
Abdul Rahman
Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: We present the construction and properties of a self-dual perverse sheaf S_0 whose cohomology fulfills some of the requirements of String theory as outlined by T. Hubsch in hep-th/9612075. The construction of this S_0 utilizes techniques that follow from MacPherson-Vilonen (Inv. Math. vol. 84, pp. 403-435, 1986). Finally, we will discuss its properties as they relate to String theory.

Abstract: Objectives: To assess frequency of obesity among college adolescent male and female students on BMI-Prime bases through anthropometric. Design: Cross sectional study. Setting: At higher secondary colleges located in urban areas of Bahawalpur City. Period: From February 2009 to March 2009 Materials & Methods: Assessment of obesity among 400 college male & female students equally divided, ages from 16 to 23 years was carried out on BMI-Prime bases. Weight categories so achieved were stratified and labeled. Results: There were 3(0.75%) severely under weight, 44(11%) under weight, 273(68.25%) normal, 68(17%) over weight, 9(2.25%) obese and 3(0.75%) were clinically obese. There was no morbidly obese. No statistical gender difference for severely under weight and clinically obese was noted. However females were more under weight (p<0.05) while males were more over weight (P<0.05) and obese (P<0.05) when compared with each other. Conclusion: The adolescent female college students were under weight when compared to their male colleagues. The frequency of obesity was higher among male students

Abstract: Objective: To identify the factors responsible for noncompliance of Anti Tuberculous Treatment in TB patients. Study Design: Cross Sectional Descriptive Study. Place & Duration: The study was Carried out at Chest diseases and Tuberculosis unit Bahawal Victoria Hospital Bahawalpur from 15th May 2007 to 15th August 2007. Subject & Method: The tuberculous patients who abandoned anti-tuberculous treatment repeatedly were interviewed for determination of their reasons to be defaulter before completing therapy by questionnaire method. The patients were AFB positive on every non-compliance episodes. Results: The total number of 100 noncompliant patients were interviewed. It was noted that 63% were males and 37% were females among them. There were 72% married and 28% unmarried from total patients. The treatment source was asked and found that 92% used government health out let only and 8% used private services also from them. Conclusion: TB is curable disease so health education should be imparted through electronic media and committed field teams stressing to take regular and complete ATT according to the physician advice removing the social belief against TB drugs. Decentralized government and private sector coordination is essential to give treatment at doorstep to reduce dropout and defaulter tendency. Stigma of TB as a disease of the illiterate & poor still persists.

Using of GIS Spatial Analyses to Study the Selected Location for Dam Reservoir on Wadi Al-Jirnaf, West of Shirqat Area, Iraq  [PDF]
Sabbar Abdulla Salih, Abdul Salam Mehdi Al-Tarif
Journal of Geographic Information System (JGIS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jgis.2012.42016
Abstract: The GIS data of digital elevation model, topographic maps of different scales, satellite images and GPS were used to analyze the geometrical relations, bathometric properties and shape form of selected depressions on Al-Jirnaf valley. GIS was used to analyze the hydromorphometry and geometry of the depressions, these analyses explain the role of main valley’s contribution to the hydrology of the valley, then, three locations for water storage were suggested. 2D and 3D models of the sites were given, the maximum level, volume, surface area, circumference, shape factor of three supposed reservoirs calculated for different hypothetical levels of water in the reservoir, and the optimal level were determined, the maximum suggested levels are 190, 185 and 180 m, the areas are 3.25, 7.97 and 20.47 km2, the volumes are 0.0096, 0.0334 and 0.1118 km3 for the three locations respectively. This experimental procedure can be repeated in other depressions for the same purpose.
