Ezz El Dein, et al., "Arabic cross cultural adaptation and validation of the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale.", Journal of the neurological sciences, vol. 357, issue 1-2, pp. 152-6, 2015 Oct 15. Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS), the most commonly used tool to quantify neurological deficit in acute stroke, was initially developed in English. We present our experience in developing and validating an Arabic version of the NIHSS (arNIHSS).

METHODS:

RESULTS: In 6months, 137 patients were recruited (mean age±standard deviation 62±12years; 48 women). For interrater agreement, weighted kappa value ranged from 0.36 to 0.66 and intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) for the whole scale was excellent at 0.95 (95% confidence interval [CI] 0.94-0.97). For intrarater agreement, weighted kappa ranged from 0.52 to 1.0 and the ICC was 0.94 (95% CI 0.87-0.98). The construct validity of the arNIHSS is demonstrated by its correlation with the DWI-ASPECT and the 3months mRS score (Spearman correlation -0.46 and 0.58 respectively; P<0.001 for both).

CONCLUSION: We developed and validated a culturally adapted Arabic version of the NIHSS. Further validation in other Arab countries is recommended.

This paper discusses the causes, extent and implications
of the digital language divide in technologies used by young
Arabic-speaking children by the example of Egyptian preschoolers.
The discussion is based on two studies: A preliminary survey
examining the nature of Egyptian preschoolers' use of technology
and an analytical evaluation of representative Arabic literacy
developing applications available for Egyptian children compared
to their English counterparts.

Using the interaction of a low-intensity femtosecond laser pulse (30 fs, 6 × 10 15 Wcm - 2) with argon cluster jet produced from a slit nozzle, we experimentally probe the formation of a uniform plasma waveguide by the interferogram analysis. The results about evolution of plasma channel demonstrate that it is feasible to produce the plasma waveguide for an fs laser pulse of low-intensity. It takes tens of nanoseconds to form a plasma waveguide. The simulation by one-dimensional Gaussian plasma hydrodynamic expansion model indicates that the temperature of plasma channel is not high under this condition. Thus it takes tens of nanoseconds to form a plasma waveguide. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

BACKGROUND: Surgery is the corner stone for the management of rectal cancer. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the optimal time of surgical resection after the completion of neoadjuvant chemo-radiotherapy (CRT) in treatment of locally advanced rectal cancer.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study compared 2 groups of patients with locally advanced rectal cancer, treated with neoadjuvant CRT followed by surgical resection either 6-8 weeks or 9-14 weeks after the completion of chemo-radiotherapy. The impact of delaying surgery was tested in comparison to early surgical resection after completion of chemo-radiotherapy.

RESULTS: The total significant response rate that could result in functional preservation was estimated to be 3.85% in group I and 15.4% in group II. Some 9.62% of our patients had residual malignant cells at one cm surgical margin. All those patients with positive margins at one cm were in group I (19.23%). There was less operative time in group II, but the difference between both groups was statistically insignificant (P=0.845). The difference between both groups regarding operative blood loss and intra operative blood transfusion was significantly less in group II (P=0.044). There was no statistically significant difference between both groups regarding the intra operative complications (P=0.609). The current study showed significantly less post-operative hospital stay period, and less post-operative wound infection in group II (P=0.012 and 0.017). The current study showed more tumor regression and necrosis in group II with a highly significant main effect of time F=61.7 (P<0.001). Pathological TN stage indicated better pathological tumor response in group II (P=0.04). The current study showed recurrence free survival for all cases at 18 months of 84.2%. In group I, survival rate at the same duration was 73.8%, however none of group II cases had local recurrence (censored) (P=0.031). Disease free survival (DFS) during the same duration (18 months) was 69.4 % for patients in group I and 82.3% for group II (P=0.429).

CONCLUSIONS: Surgical resection delay up to 9-14 weeks after chemo-radiation was associated with better outcome and better recurrence free survival.
