Early identification of acute lung injury (ALI) in pediatric patients at risk of mortality is important for improving outcome.Assessment of soluble form of receptor for advanced glycation end products (sRAGE) as a valid biomarker for diagnosis of ALI among critically ill, pediatric patients in addition to correlating levels of sRAGE and different outcomes of those patients.A Hospital-based case-control study was conducted in pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) at Cairo University Hospital, along a period of 6 months. Total of 68 pediatric patients following inclusion criteria were classified into: patients with ALI; with both ALI and sepsis; with sepsis and control patients. They were prospectively followed and their laboratory and immunological workup (at days 1 and 9) was done to measure serum sRAGE levels and detect (sRAGE) genotypes.The age of the included children ranged from 8 to 84 months. Plasma level of sRAGE was significantly higher in plasma from patients with ALI regardless of associated sepsis. Plasma sRAGE levels were positively correlated with lung injury score. When assessing sRAGE genotypes, TA and TT genotypes were significant in most of the ALI with and without sepsis patients.Monitoring levels of sRAGE and genotypes can significantly affect the survival of ALI children.

Abdalgaleel, "Evaluation of BreastLight as a tool for early detection of breast lesions among females attending National Cancer Institute, Cairo University", Asian Pacific journal of cancer prevention: APJCP, vol. 14, issue 8, pp. 4647 - 4650, 2013. Abstract

BACKGROUND: Breast illumination was suggested as a simple method for breast cancer screening. BreastLight is a simple apparatus for this purpose.OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of BreastLight as a screening tool of breast cancer in comparison to mammography and histopathology.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: This hospital-based cross sectional study was conducted in the mammography unit of the radiodiagnosis department at National Cancer Institute, Cairo University. All participants were subjected to breast examination with the BreastLight tool, mammography and ultrasonography. Suspicious cases were biopsied for histopathological examination which is considered as a gold standard.
RESULTS: The mean age of the participants was 46.3±12.4 years. Breast illumination method had sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value and total accuracy of 93.0%, 73.7%, 91.4%, 77.8% and 88.2%, respectively in detection of breast cancer.
CONCLUSIONS: Breast illumination method with BreastLight apparatus is a promising easy-to-use tool to screen for breast cancer suitable for primary health care physician or at-home use. It needs further evaluation especially in asymptomatic women.

Labib, D. O., H. Heshmat, A. H. Gaafar, M. salah, and S. G. Mahdy, "Real-time three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography for predicting mitral annuloplasty ring size.", The Journal of heart valve disease, vol. 23, issue 5, pp. 583-90, 2014 Sep. Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Despite advances in mitral valve repair techniques, including robotic surgeries, few studies are available on predicting mitral annuloplasty ring size using echocardiography. Furthermore, these studies either had limited accuracy or else required the use of three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (3D-TEE), an expensive and semi-invasive tool. The study aim was to predict the mitral annuloplasty ring size preoperatively using real-time, three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (RT3D-TTE), which is a cheaper, non-invasive technique.

METHODS: This prospective study included 47 consecutive patients scheduled for elective mitral valve surgery. All participants underwent preoperative RT3D-TTE. The mitral annular transverse diameter during early systole and the maximum height of the A2 scallop were measured in the multiplanar reconstruction mode. The surgeon, who was blinded to the echocardiographic measurements, also measured these two variables intraoperatively. A Pearson correlation coefficient was used to assess the association between the echocardiographic and operative measurements. A linear regression analysis was used to predict the annuloplasty ring size.

RESULTS: A total of 34 patients (72.3%) underwent mitral valve repair. The echocardiographic measurements of the mitral annular transverse diameter were well correlated with the operative measurements (r = 0.64, p < 0.001). A moderate correlation was observed between the echocardiographic and operative measurements of A2 height (r = 0.59, p < 0.001). Linear regression analysis yielded an equation that predicted the annuloplasty ring size (R = 0.828, p < 0.001).

CONCLUSION: RT3D-TTE was used successfully to predict the mitral annuloplasty ring size. This technique may potentially aid surgical planning, particularly before robotic procedures are performed.

BACKGROUND: Patients in pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) are susceptible to infections with gram-negative bacteria (GNB).

METHODS: A prospective observational study was conducted in 2 PICUs at Cairo University Hospitals to determine the incidence and outcome of GNB infections over 1 year. Variables of interest included age, gender, isolated organism, susceptibility to antibiotics, and final outcome.

RESULTS: During the study period, 1420 patients were admitted to the PICU; of these, 291 developed GNB infections. The median age of the studied GNB patients was 50 months (interquartile range [IQR], 22-80 months). The mortality rate was 37.1%. Organisms were isolated from blood in the majority (86.6%) of patients, with Klebsiella (36.0%) being the most frequently isolated organism. Among patients with GNB infection, 235 patients, one had a multidrug-resistant (MDR) infection. The length of hospital stay was statistically significantly longer in the MDR group (25 days; IQR, 20-30) than in the non-MDR group (15 days; IQR, 10-20) (P < .01). Mortality was similar in both groups (37.4% vs 35.7% in the MDR and non-MDR groups, respectively; P = .88).

CONCLUSION: This study highlights high rates of pediatric MDR-GNB infections and emphasizes the need for a continuous surveillance system in the management of these critically ill children.
