GO Igberase
Afrimedic Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Background: Abdominal massage is a harmful cultural practice sometimes leading to maternal and Foetal mortality and morbidity. Aim: To report a case of maternal and foetal deaths from abdominal massage with review of relevant literature. Method: A case of maternal and fetal deaths from abdominal massage is reported. Result: A case of a 34 year old unbooked gravida 3 para 1 1+ lady admitted at 32 weeks gestation with 2 weeks history of cough and a 3 day history of fever, labour pains and difficulty with breathing is presented. She had abdominal massage done on 2 occasions in a traditional birth attendant's home. Abdominal ultrasound revealed massive intraperitoneal fluid collection with twin intrauterine foetal death. Findings at laparotomy showed a ruptured spleen, massive haemoperitoneum of 4.5 litres and twin intrauterine foetal deaths. She died 2 hours post operatively of hypovolemic shock and cardiac arrest. Conclusion: Widespread public health enlightenment of traditional birth attendants and pregnant women on the harmful effect of abdominal massage is needed.

GO Igberase, PN Ebeigbe
Benin Journal of Postgraduate Medicine , 2006,
Abstract: Objective: To re-appraise clinicians that huge ovarian lesions with features of malignancies may still be benign and that late presentation is a problem in genital cancer management that should be addressed. Subject, material and method: A case report of a huge benign granulosa cell tumour in a postmenopausal woman is presented. Results: She presented as a case of a huge right ovarian tumour with weight loss, respiratory and abdominal discomfort one year after initial diagnosis was made because of fear of surgery. She had laparotomy, total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingoophorectomy. Histology revealed granulosa cell tumour of the benign type. Conclusion: Huge ovarian tumours in the elderly could be benign. In the absence of proper screening technique for ovarian cancers, laparotomy for histological purposes is required. Health education and proper counselling is imperative to reduce delays of patients to hospitals. Key Words: Huge, benign, granulosa cell tumour, 61 year old, Late presentation.

GO Igberase, EC Isah, OF Igbekoyi
Annals of African Medicine , 2009,
Abstract: Background: Maternal mortality rates are very high in Nigeria. Increased level of awareness and perception will reduce maternal mortality rates. Objective: The study was aimed at assessing the awareness and perception of maternal mortality among women in the reproductive age group at Ogunu community in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State. Methodology: This was a descriptive cross-sectional study that was carried out in Ogunu town in Delta State. A simple random sampling technique was used to select 400 women, who gave consent to be enrolled in the study. They were assisted in filling a semi-structured questionnaire containing questions on awareness and perception of maternal mortality among women in the community. Information generated was recorded on a data collection sheet designed for the study. The coded data were fed into the computer using the SPSS program to determine the mean values and frequencies. Results: A total of 400 questionnaires were distributed; of these, 349 were completely filled and returned. The mean age of the study subjects was 31.6 ± 7.7 years. Among these subjects, 54.7% were married, while 32.7%, 28.7% and 26.5% had tertiary, secondary and primary education, respectively. The study revealed that 96.3% of the subjects felt that death can occur from pregnancy-related problems, while 69.1% were aware of maternal mortality. Majority of the subjects agreed that one or more forms of delay could be responsible for their death. This study shows that a good proportion of subjects was aware of maternal mortality and also had a good perception of it. Conclusion: Efforts should be directed towards educating women about the risk of delivering in homes of traditional birth attendants, maternity homes and health centers, and the concept of early referral of women to the hospital should be reinforced. Providing information to women on prevention of maternal mortality and community participation and mobilization will help prevent maternal mortality to some extent in Nigeria.

PN Ebeigbe, GO Igberase, J Eigbefoh
Ghana Medical Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Objectives: Previous Nigerian studies show wide-spread ignorance and low acceptance of vasectomy among the male population. The objectives of this study were to determine the level of knowledge of, attitudes to, counselling pattern and acceptance of vas-ectomy among Nigerian Resident Gynaecologists. Design: A cross-sectional questionnaire based survey. Method: Resident Doctors attending a national update course in obstetrics and gynaecology. Results: Most of the doctors had good knowledge of Vasectomy. More than four-fifth of the doctors were convinced that the average Nigerian male will not ac-cept vasectomy when indicated while more than three-fifth consider BTL a more appropriate option for per-manent contraception in our setting. Forty one point three percent of the doctors will opt for vasectomy or urge their husbands to. Reasons for opposition to vas-ectomy were socio-cultural (21.3%), religious (13.1%) and psychological (41.0%), 24.6% had no specific rea-sons. While 89.4% of the doctors counselled often for BTL only 5.8% did for vasectomy. Conclusion: The Doctors showed good knowledge of vasectomy but most were poorly disposed towards use of vasectomy. The findings suggest a need for effective national training programmes targeted at resident doc-tors to enhance their knowledge of vasectomy as well as break barriers to personal use of, and counselling for vasectomy.

GO Igberase, PN Ebeigbe, OUJ Umeora, HO Abedi
Nigerian Journal of Clinical Practice , 2011,
Abstract: Background and Objective: To document bilateral tubal ligation (BTL) rate and highlight the need to improve on the rates. Materials and Methods: A retrospective review of BTLs done in a five-year period from January 2000 to December 2004 constituted the study group. Results: There were a total of 103 BTLs, 58 were Caesarean BTLs, six were cases of BTL with repair of uterine rupture and 39 had BTL from mini-laparotomy. There were 937 Caesarean sections and 2,356 deliveries during the study period. BTL therefore constituted 0.044% of the total deliveries. The majority (51.7%) were above 35 years of age and grandmultiparity constituted 60.4% of BTL cases. The majority was in the low social Class 4 and 5 (41.3%). Grandmultiparity was the most common indication (60.4%). Previous Caesarean sections were more in the highest social class with a mean of 2.9 ± 1.21 while ruptured uterus had the lowest. Unbooked cases of BTL constituted 62.1% of BTL. Conclusions: Bilateral tubal ligation rate was low in this study with grandmultiparity being the commonest indication, the majority of patients were elderly parturient and largely unbooked. Social class was highest among those with previous Caesarean section.
Forgotten intrauterine device contributing to infertility
Gabriel O. Igberase
Clinics and Practice , 2011, DOI: 10.4081/cp.2011.e74
Abstract: The aim of the study is to show that long standing forgotten intrauterine device contributes to infertility, reporting three cases presented at Central Hospital Warri, Nigeria, a government tertiary health center. Three cases of forgotten intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) contributing to infertility were seen. Two were inserted for contraceptive reasons while one was inserted while being managed for uterine synechae. Health care providers should ensure proper documentation of all procedures carried out, adequate counseling which should include taking an informed consent and also ensuring both short and long term follow up of their clients. Also all patients being evaluated for infertility and clients with past history of intrauterine device must have a speculum examination and ultrasound scan carried out.

Verification of Hypothesis of “Six Patterns of Paid Vacation Use”: An Exploration of Six Patterns of Paid Vacation Usage and Number of Days Taken  [PDF]
Go Igusa
Journal of Human Resource and Sustainability Studies (JHRSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jhrss.2014.23013
Abstract: In this study a survey using questionnaires was conducted to understand the actual condition of the relationship between methods for taking paid vacation and its usage rate; to focus on verifying the relationship quantitatively by empirical analysis; and to present a plan to promote paid vacation usage. The simple tabulation did not reveal a distinct difference in the number of days taken as paid vacation among the usage methods; however, by making the other conditions constant, the number of days taken as paid vacation by those adopting a share method was significantly high. In other words, by recommending the share method at a workplace, it is possible that the paid vacation usage condition improves considerably. In order for this method to operate effectively, the paper proposed that “efforts to utilize human resources” is necessary so that personnel who can replace the work of employees taking paid vacation are prepared.

Journal of Human Resource and Sustainability Studies (JHRSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jhrss.2014.24017
Abstract: This paper focuses on the issue of annual paid leave that is left untaken by physicians in a difficult working environment from the perspective of hospital managers and clarifies the reasons why physicians cannot (will not) take leave through interviews with these managers and main causes of this through qualitative analysis. The results show that the main causes of annual paid leave being left untaken are “the lack of substitute physicians due to management constraints” and “physician’s ethics and overwork” which are different from the results of conventional research into annual paid leave. While also exposing the issue of supply and demand such as the uneven distribution of physicians, this paper raises the necessity of human resources management for physicians such as reconstructing the supply and demand coordination framework by improving the medical services payment system for physicians in order to make sure that demand for physician labour is met and to build and maintain a system for the provision of safe and secure healthcare in the future.
Economic Analysis on Attributes of Workers and Method to Take Annual Paid Vacation  [PDF]
Go Igusa
Journal of Human Resource and Sustainability Studies (JHRSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jhrss.2015.33014
Abstract: This paper focuses on what type of laborers chooses which of the six types of uses of paid vacations. In this paper, we conduct a multinomial logistic regression analysis with the “six types of uses of paid vacations” which are “share method”, “progressive method”, “regressive method”, “self-pay method (advance)”, “self-pay method (arrears)”, and “self-pay method (work at home)” as object variables. As a result, many of the independent variables did not influence which type was chosen, but interesting variables “information is not shared” and “those around me take paid vacation” were influential, revealing that different types of choices are made depending on how participants work.
