Dose Load during Angiographic Procedures RCA Stenting

Javor Denkov Ivanov
This article is a continuation of the study of the dose load received by an interventional cardiologist during angiographic procedures and particularly during RCA stenting. To calculate the dose load, dosimetric measurements of the effective dose were carried out while working with a Philips Allura Xper FD10 angiographic system in the invasive department of the Special Hospital for Active Treatment in Cardiology, Varna, Bulgaria. The measurements were carried out for the two operating modes of t...

Dose Load during Angiographic Procedures LCx Stenting

Bistra Manusheva
The study of the dose load received by the personnel working with x-ray equipment is a very important task in the modern world. The purpose of this article is to assess the dose load based on published dosimetric measurements obtained by an interventional cardiologist from scattered X-ray during the angiographic procedure LCx stenting. The procedure is carried out under X-ray guidance using a Philips Allura Xper FD10 system. The dose calculations and assessments are made for three positions of t...

Dose Load during Angiographic Procedures LAD Stenting

Severina Ivanova
Based on published dosimetric measurements, the dose load received by the interventional cardiologist from scattered X-ray radiation was assessed for an angiographic LAD stenting procedure under X-ray guidance. An angiographic X-ray system “Philips Allura Xper FD10” was used for the study. The dose assessment calculations were made for three positions of the patient table—basic, lowest and highest—and for three measurement points—“head”, “gonads” and “feet”, in which the received dose was measur...

Impact of Sputum Sampling Instructional Video on Ziehl-Neelsen Positivity in Tuberculosis Diagnostic Centers at BOMA: Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial

Alexis Keya Sumbu, Aliocha Nkodila Natuhoyila, Lionnel Bahinzi, Octavie Lunguya Metila, Ahuka Mundeke Steve, Benjamin Longo Mbenza
Background and Purpose: Tuberculosis is a global scourge. In DRC, Ziehl-Neelsen (ZN) is the most widely used reference test for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Its performance can be improved by certain strategies before sputum collection, particularly the instructional video. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the instructional video showing and explaining appropriate sputum collection techniques for the diagnosis of tuberculosis. Methods: Multicenter, si...

Dose Load during Angiographic Procedures

Natasha Ivanova, Javor Ivanov
On basis of dosimetric measurement, this article compares the radiation doses received by the main interventional cardiologist during the angiographic procedures. The dose load during three procedures is compared—LAD-stenting, LCx-stenting and RCA-stenting. An angiographic X-ray system Philips Allura Xper FD10 (with G-arm) was used. The dose obtained was measured with an X-ray-Gamma Dosimeter 27091. During each procedure, two modes of the equipment are used—radiography and fluoroscopy. The dose ...

Supportive Approach to Covid-19 Treatment with Acupuncture Practice

Mehmet Tugrul Cabioglu, Caner Horzum, Saltuk Cabioglu
Nowadays, there is no specific antiviral treatment for COVID-19 that has been proven to be safe and effective. Therefore, the prophylactic approach, that is, the preventive approach, especially in risk groups, comes plan to the fore before the disease occurs. In the Covid-19 pandemic, the preventive prophylactic approach becomes even more important as there are doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals and public officials working in this period, especially within the risk group. It is known tha...

We report a case of a 66-year-old female patient with ischemic cardiomyopathy, who was referred in Nephrology Department for the management of a renal impairment associated-severe hyponatremia, hypokalemia and hypochloremia that occurred after vomiting episodes evolving since 1 month. On admission, the patient was calm with a psychomotor retardation occurring in a context of moderate dehydration. Arterial blood gas analysis outlined a severe metabolic alkalosis. An extra-renal cause of these met...

Antiallodynic Effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Paclitaxel-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy in a Model of Rat and Its Mechanism

Ting Miao, Xianze Meng, Hong He, Xiaojun Ji
Objective: To investigate the antiallodynic effect of Hyperbaric oxygen treat-ment (HBOT) on paclitaxel (PTX)-induced peripheral neuropathy in a model of rat and the influence on Astrocyte activation-Inflammatory pathway. Method: 45 male Sprague-Dawley rats were equally divided into 3 groups, the Control group (Control), the Model group (PTX), the Therapy group (PTX HBOT). Except for the Control group, all groups were intraperit

Clinical and Molecular Characters of a Yemeni Child with Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome

Saeed Thabet, Abdulgafoor Kassim, Nabil Al-Jomaai, Ramea Alathwary, Saddam Alhalemi
Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome is an x-linked immunodeficiency condition charac-terized by microthrombocytopenia, eczema and recurrent infections. It is caused by mutations in the Wiskott Aldrich Protein (WASP) gene. Hereby we report a 13-month-old Yemeni male infant with mutation in WASP Gene, who presented with congenital microthrombocytopenia, eczema, bleeding tendency and recurrent infections. The variant found in this case creates
