AbstractFull Text Paper.pdf

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia in females leads to virilization of the external genitalia and an anomalous genitourinary tract, with a termination of the urethra and vagina into the persistent urogenital sinus. Surgical repair during infancy is indicated to raise a female child with external genitalia matching her gender and to avoid psychosocial and genitourinary complications. Earlier surgery is believed to be easier and of better results. Twenty five female patients with virilized external genitalia and persistent urogenital sinus due to congenital adrenal hyperplasia were studied. Interpretation of the genitography and cystoscopy was analyzed and compared to the operative findings to assess their accuracy and predictability. Sensitivity of cystoscopy and genitography is comparable (78.5% and 73% respectively), but cystoscopy has a higher specificity than genitography (91% and 83% respectively). Both investigations had a similar predictivity and were able to reveal the internal anatomy and operative difficulty in 56% of cases. In 12% both investigations had a similar predictivity, but failed to expect the operative difficulty. Cystoscopy was superior to genitography in 24%, but surprisingly genitography was more predictive in 8%. Neither genitography nor cystoscopy were independently predictive of the internal anatomy and intraoperative findings or difficulty of the studied cases. We therefore recommend doing both investigations as a routine preoperative workup. The benefit is to assess these cases properly and support decision making and choice of surgery.

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.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: In obese patients, non-invasive blood pressure monitoring in the arm is difficult due to the arm size and morphology. We compared the non-invasive oscillometric wrist blood pressure measurement with the arm and forearm in obese patients monitored with invasive radial blood pressure (reference standard).

METHODS: This prospective observational study included adult obese patients scheduled for bariatric surgery. Non-invasive blood pressure was measured at the arm, upper forearm and wrist of one upper extremity, while invasive blood pressure was simultaneously measured through a radial arterial catheter in the contralateral upper extremity. The accuracy of non-invasive blood pressure reading at each site was evaluated for absolute and trending values using the Bland-Altman analysis and Spearman's correlation coefficient.

RESULTS: In 40 patients, 262, 259, and 263 pairs of non-invasive blood pressure readings were obtained from the arm, forearm, and wrist sites, respectively. As primary outcome, the correlation coefficient for systolic blood pressure was higher for the wrist (0.92, 95% confidence interval (CI) [0.9-0.94]) than for the arm (0.74, 95% CI [0.68-0.79]) and the forearm (0.71, 95% CI [0.64-0.76]) (P<0.05). The non-invasive systolic wrist blood pressure showed the least mean bias and the narrowest limits of agreement (-0.3±7.6mmHg) when compared with forearm (4.3±16) and arm measurements (14.2±13.6) (P<0.05). For trending values, the correlation coefficient was the highest at the wrist.

CONCLUSION: In obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery, non-invasive blood pressure measured at the wrist showed the highest accuracy in comparison with the arm and forearm.

A total of 150 does of different breeds were used to evaluate the accuracy of transrectal (TRU) and transabdominal ultrasonography (TAU) for pregnancy diagnosis and fetal number estimation and to study the effect of breed and age of goats on the accuracy of ultrasonography. All does were scanned by TRU at days 17-22, 24-29 and 31-36 and by TAU at days 39-44 and 46-51 after breeding. The sensitivity (Se) of TRU for detecting pregnant does increased significantly (81.6% vs. 97.7%; P<0.0005) from days 17-22 to 24-29. There was a significant (P<0.05) effect of breed of goats on the specificity (Sp) of TAU for diagnosing non-pregnancy between days 39 and 51. In addition, there was a significant (P<0.01) effect of breed of goats on the Se and Sp of TRU for determination of does carrying multiples and singles, respectively, between days 24 and 36. The sensitivity of TAU for diagnosing pregnant does tended to be significantly (P=0.06) higher in young does (1.5-2 yr) than in older does (>2-9 yr) at days 39-44. The accuracy of TRU for determination of does carrying singles was significantly (P<0.05) higher in young does than that in older ones at days 24-29. In conclusions, TRU could be accurately used for early pregnancy diagnosis and fetal number estimation at days 24-29 and days 31-36, respectively, with accuracy similar to that of TAU at days 39-51. Furthermore, breed and age of does might influence the accuracy of ultrasonography for pregnancy diagnosis and fetal numbers estimation.

Background: Early caries detection became mandatory in modern dentistry. However, the traditional methods in caries detection had many limitations. Hence, a novel approach based on Near Infrared technology was introduced to overcome such limitations. Material and methods: Proximal surfaces of 102 posterior teeth from 36 adult participants who fulfilled the eligibility criteria were assessed by two examiners using three diagnostic methods. Teeth were examined visually according to the criteria of the International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS-II) then examined by bitewing digital radiograph (BW) and near infrared light transillumination (NIRT) camera (Vista Proxi iX HD smart). Inter and intra observer agreements were assessed using Kappa test. Diagnostic accuracy parameters and Area Under the ROC curve (AUROC) with 95% confidence interval (95% CI) were evaluated for the different caries assessment methods. Results: The results of inter-observer agreement showed an excellent agreement in the different groups. There was a statistically significant difference in the score distribution between ICDASII and VistaCam modalities (P-value <0.05). While there was no statistically significant difference in the score distribution between bitewing radiography and VistaCam modalities (P-value >0.05). ROC curve analysis revealed that VistaCam when compared with ICDASII had sensitivity (99.0%), specificity (50.0 %), diagnostic accuracy (98.0%) and Area under the ROC curve (AUC) was 0.745 with 95% Confidence Interval (0.649 - 0.826). When VistaCam compared with bitewing radiography, it showed sensitivity (100.0%); specificity (40.0%), diagnostic accuracy (97.1%) and AUC (0.700) with 95% confidence interval (0.601 - 0.787). Conclusions: NIRT based diagnostic modality is a promising method for detection of hidden proximal lesions overcoming the hazards of radiograph.
