El Kassas, M., M. Alboraie, D. Omran, M. Salaheldin, M. N. Wifi, M. Elbadry, adel el tahan, S. Ezzat, E. Moaz, A. M. Farid, et al., "An account of the real-life hepatitis C management in a single specialized viral hepatitis treatment centre in Egypt: results of treating 7042 patients with 7 different direct acting antiviral regimens.", Expert review of gastroenterology & hepatology, pp. 1-8, 2018 May 24. Abstract

BACKGROUND: A large Egyptian treatment program for HCV was launched in2014 after the introduction of direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs). This program depended mainly on establishing specialized independent centres for HCV treatment. These centres represent the major strengths in the Egyptian model of care, as they provide integrated care for HCV patients and have enabled Egypt to treat more than one million patients in 3 years. The New Cairo Viral Hepatitis Treatment Center (NCVHTC) is an example of these specialized centres.

METHODS: The Egyptian experience in the management of HCV was evaluated by analysing the data of real-life HCV management in the NCVHTC from 2014 to 2017. Results of different treatment regimens in addition to their strengths, limitations and areas for improvement are discussed in this report.

RESULTS: A total of 7042 HCV patients have been evaluated for treatment in the NCVHTC. Among them, 5517 patients received treatment by seven different DAA regimens with excellent results.

CONCLUSIONS: All regimens were highly effective at treating HCV in a real-life setting, apart from SOF/RBV, which was the least effective. A nationwide screening program and enhancing the follow-up of treated patients are the main missing pillars in the Egyptian model.

Adel, A., W. Awada, B. A. Elhamid, H. Omar, O. A. E. Dayem, A. Hasanin, and A. Rady, "Accuracy and trending of non-invasive hemoglobin measurement during different volume and perfusion statuses.", Journal of clinical monitoring and computing, 2018 Jan 15. Abstract

The evolution of non-invasive hemoglobin measuring technology would save time and improve transfusion practice. The validity of pulse co-oximetry hemoglobin (SpHb) measurement in the perioperative setting was previously evaluated; however, the accuracy of SpHb in different volume statuses as well as in different perfusion states was not well investigated. The aim of this work is to evaluate the accuracy and trending of SpHb in comparison to laboratory hemoglobin (Lab-Hb) during acute bleeding and after resuscitation. Seventy patients scheduled for major orthopedic procedures with anticipated major blood loss were included. Radical-7 device was used for continuous assessment of SpHb, volume status [via pleth variability index (PVI)] and perfusion status [via perfusion index (PI)]. Lab-Hb and SpHb were measured at three time-points, a baseline reading, after major bleeding, and after resuscitation. Samples were divided into fluid-responsive and fluid non-responsive samples, and were also divided into high-PI and low-PI samples. Accuracy of SpHb was determined using Bland-Altman analysis. Trending of SpHb was evaluated using polar plot analysis. We obtained 210 time-matched readings. Fluid non-responsive samples were 106 (50.5%) whereas fluid responsive samples were 104 (49.5%). Excellent correlation was reported between Lab-Hb and SpHb (r = 0.938). Excellent accuracy with moderate levels of agreement was also reported between both measures among all samples, fluid non-responsive samples, fluid-responsive samples, high-PI samples, and low-PI samples [Mean bias (limits of agreement): 0.01 (- 1.33 and 1.34) g/dL, - 0.08 (- 1.27 and 1.11) g/dL, 0.09 (- 1.36 and 1.54) g/dL, 0.01 (- 1.34 to 1.31) g/dL, and 0.04 (- 1.31 to 1.39) g/dL respectively]. Polar plot analysis showed good trending ability for SpHb as a follow up monitor. In conclusion, SpHb showed excellent correlation with Lab-Hb in fluid responders, fluid non-responders, low-PI, and high PI states. Despite a favorable mean bias of 0.01 g/dL for SpHb, the relatively wide levels of agreement (- 1.3 to 1.3 g/dL) might limit its accuracy. SpHb showed good performance as a trend monitor.

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the diagnostic accuracy of endomyometrial biopsy obtained via office hysteroscopy for the diagnosis of adenomyosis.

STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study.

SETTING: Cairo University Teaching Hospital, Cairo, Egypt.

PATIENTS: A total of 404 premenopausal women with symptoms clinically suggestive of having adenomyosis.

INTERVENTIONS: All patients were subjected to 2-dimensional transvaginal sonography (TVS) in-office hysteroscopy examination with endomyometrial biopsy. Patients who subsequently underwent hysterectomy were included in the final analysis.

MAIN MEASUREMENTS AND RESULTS: Accuracy of diagnostic modalities was represented using the terms sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and overall accuracy. A total of 292 patients were eligible for final analysis. Of these, 162 (55.47%) were diagnosed with adenomyosis based on hysterectomy specimens. TVS had a high sensitivity (83.95%) and a moderate specificity (60%). In contrast, endomyometrial biopsy was more specific (78.46%) than sensitive (54.32%). Hysteroscopic appearance of the endometrial cavity had low sensitivity (40.74%) and specificity (44.62%). Adding endomyometrial biopsy to TVS improved specificity (89.23%).

CONCLUSION: Endomyometrial biopsy obtained via office hysteroscopy can diagnose adenomyosis with a high specificity and is recommended after TVS.

UNLABELLED: The aim of this study was to detect the accuracy of routine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) done in different centres and its agreement with arthroscopy in meniscal and ligamentous injuries of the knee. We prospectively examined 70 patients ranging in age between 22 and 59 years. History taking, plain X-ray, clinical examination, routine MRI and arthroscopy were done for all patients. Sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, positive and negative predictive values, P value and kappa agreement measures were calculated. We found a sensitivity of 47 and 100%, specificity of 95 and 75% and accuracy of 73 and 78.5%, respectively, for the medial and lateral meniscus. A sensitivity of 77.8%, specificity of 100% and accuracy of 94% was noted for the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). We found good kappa agreements (0.43 and 0.45) for both menisci and excellent agreement (0.84) for the ACL. MRI shows high accuracy and should be used as the primary diagnostic tool for selection of candidates for arthroscopy.
