Abstract

Obesity is a condition of excess and abnormal fat accumulation. Obese adolescents are atgreater risk of developing iron deficiency anemia with microcytic hypochromic red blood cells(RBC). Iron deficiency in obesity relates to low iron intake, abnormal iron absorption, andincreased iron utilization. The aim of this study was to determine iron intake, hemoglobin level,and RBC indices in faculty of medicine students with obesity. We used descriptive cross-sectional method, involving year of 2016 students in Faculty of Medicine PadjadjaranUniversity with obesity. Pregnant women and students with previous history of thallasemia oranemia were excluded. Iron intake was assessed using Food Frequency Questionnaire.Hemoglobin level and RBC indices were measured in Hasan Sadikin General Hospital. Ironintake of male subjects were adequate in 62,5% subjects and low in 37,5% subjects. Iron intakein female subjects were adequate in 20% subjects and low in 80% subjects. Male hemoglobinlevel were normal and 20% of female subjects had anemia. All male subjects were normochromnormocytic, 40% female subjects were hypochrom microcytic.Keywords: adolescents, hemoglobin level, iron intake, obesity, red blood cell indices

Abstract

Meningioma is an intracranial tumor that generally involves meninges. This tumor canbe found along the dura layers at the skull base. Meningioma has vast vascularization from thearteries near dura attachment. Pre-operative embolization technique is an effective strategy toprevent intra-operative complications and better outcomes. The patient was a 24 year-oldwoman who has been complaining of headaches since 2 months ago. The CT Scan resulted in a12 x 9 x 7 cm isodense mass in the left temporoparietal enhanced homogenously by contrast.Pre-operative embolization was performed on the tumor feeding artery as a strategy to preventintra-operative blood loss. A left frontotemporosphenoidal craniotomy was performed 10 daysafter embolization to remove the tumor. A complete resection was successfully achieved withless intraoperative blood loss and without complication. The pathology examination resulted inmeningotheliomatous meningioma. A follow-up picture showed no recurrent tumor afterresection and the patient had no symptoms and neurological deficits until 6 months after thesurgery. In conclusion, meningioma is a common intracranial tumor with a lot of blood supply.However, tumor resection can be safely and efficaciously performed with good pre-operativestrategy.Keywords: brain tumor, embolization, meningioma, resection, skullbase

Abstract

Dental extraction can cause anxiety in children, observed in vital signs changes. If occursexcessively, it can be regarded as an obstacle and may affect a child's behavior that can furtherdetermine the success of dental treatment. Anxiety that occurs in children can usually be influencedby various factors, including the level of parental education. This study aimed to observe maternaleducation level and anxiety in children receiving dental extraction treatments. This is a descriptivestudy, involving 60 subjects aged 7-12 that went for dental extraction at Rumah Sakit Gigi MulutPendidikan Universitas Jenderal Achmad Yani (RSGMP UNJANI) Cimahi Juli-Desember 2016. Theparameters examined for measuring anxiety are body temperature, respiration frequency, and pulsebefore and after the procedure. This study found that 63.3% of mother of the subject had high schooleducation, 16.7% of junior high school, 8.3% S1, 6.7% D1/D3, and 5% SD. Increased bodytemperature was obtained in 36 subjects, increased respiration frequency in 46 subjects, andincreased pulse in 34 subjects. We concluded that the majority of maternal education levels in thisstudy are high school graduates and the anxiety parameters in the majority of subjects increase whenreceiving dental extraction procedure.Keywords: child's anxiety, dental extraction, mother education level

Abstract

Free radical plays role in wound healing. This study was conducted to determinedifferences in level of plasma malondialdehyde (MDA), and histopathological score of woundhealing by administering zinc in old and young mice. We used 24 old mice and 24 young miceincision wound model, randomized into two groups, with and without zinc administration. Wefound plasma MDA level was lower in old mice with zinc administration but not statisticallysignificant. The plasma MDA level was significantly higher by administering zinc in young mice(p=0.004). The plasma MDA level of young mice was higher than old mice in zincadministration group (p=0.010). Reepitelialization, inflammatory cells, fibroblasts andangiogenesis did not differ by administering zinc both in old mice and young mice.Reepitelialization, inflammatory cells and angiogenesis did not differ between old and youngmice in mice that were given zinc; while fibroblast of young mice is more than old mice(p=0.010). We concluded  plasma MDA level is higher in young mice with zincadministration. Plasma MDA level in young mice is higher than old mice with zincadministration. Young mice with zinc administration have higher fibroblast than oldmice.Keywords: aging, free radical, histopathologic score, malondialdehid, wound healing, zinc

Abstract

Cadaver is an important learning media for students of the Faculty of Medicine. Althoughthe cadaver has undergone a preservation process, sometimes the preservative liquids used onlyprotects the cadaver, and does not inhibit the fungal growth. Based on previous research, thefungus found in cadaveric preparations are pathogenic. The objectives of this study were toidentify the growing fungus on the cadaver preservative liquid at the Anatomy Laboratory of theFaculty of Medicine, Maranatha Christian University. This is a descriptive experimental study.Samples were taken from three cadaver tubs. Subsequently, the sample was inoculated onSabouraud's Dextrose Agar and Chromagar medium in a petridish and incubated at roomtemperature (25 ⁰ ) for seven days. After seven days, the morphology of the fungus was observedmacroscopically and microscopically. We found Aspergillus sp., Penicillium sp.,Epidermophyton sp., and Candida sp on the samples. The study was conducted in December2017-January 2018 at the Microbiology Laboratory, Faculty of Medicine, Maranatha ChristianUniversity and Microbiology Laboratory, Faculty of Medicine, Padjadjaran University.Keywords: fungi, cadaver, preservative liquid

Abstract

Cancer is a disease that can threaten human life. Various methods of cancer therapy havebeen widely practiced, one of which is chemotherapy. But the cost used for the therapy is alsovery expensive. This difficulty led many researchers to conduct research to find activecompounds from natural materials. Moringa leaf (Moringa oleifera) has cytotoxic activity,because it contains a lot of flavonoids. Flavonoids are polyphenol compounds produced fromsecondary metabolism in plants. The most flavonoids that are anticancer active substances inthe Moringa leaf are quercetin, kaempferol and myricetin. Cytotoxic activity because theseactive substances can induce apoptosis through intrinsic pathways by inhibition of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), extracellular-signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK 1/2), c-Jun N-terminal protein kinase 1 (JNK), and protein kinase C (PKC).Keywords: Moringa leaf, quersetin; kaempferol; myricetin; anticancer

Abstract

Tuberculous spondylitis is a chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacteriumtuberculosis on the vertebral bone. Involved less than 3% of all cases of TB, but the incidencevaries around the world, and is associated with the quality of public health and socioeconomicconditions.The purpose of this study is to investigate the presurgical aspects of nutrition inpatients with tuberculous spondylitis. A total of 39 consecutive patients between January 2011-December 2012 were evaluated retrospectively. All patients diagnosed with spondylitistuberculousis and treated with decompression, stabilization and fusion. All patients had beendiagnosed with Spondylitis tuberculousis based on history taking, physical examination,laboratory finding and MRI. Our study showed that of all subjects, ten male patients and eightfemale patients had cervical (n=1), thoracic (n=15), and lumbar (n=2) tuberculousspondylitis.The average age of the patients was 32.83 ± 12.25 (17-56) years old. The averagepreoperative body mass index (BMI) was 16.67 ± 1.2 kg / m2, albumin levels 3.23 ± 0.21 g / dl,total protein level 6.2 ± 0.34 g/dL. These were lower than normal value. We conclude thattuberculous spondylitis patients experience nutritional deficiencies presurgically andnutritional support should be considered pre-operatively.Keywords: Mycobacterium tuberculosis, nutritional state, presurgical aspect,tuberculousspondylitis
