Abstract

Objective: To examine the intervertebral disc characteristic on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in lumbar herniated disc (LHD) patients with progressive neurological deficit.Methods: Patients were collected retrospectively from Dr. Hasan Sadikin General Hospital Database from 2011?2013 with LHD, had neurological deficit such as radiculopathy and cauda equine syndrome for less than four weeks with a positive sign confirmed by neurological examination and confirmatory with MRI examination.Results: A total of 14 patients with lumbar herniated disc disease (10 males, 4 females) suffered from progressive neurological deficit with an average age of (52.07±10.9) years old. Early disc height was 9.38±0.5 mm and progressive neurological deficit state disc height was 4.03±0.53 mm, which were significantly different statisticaly (p<0.01). Symptoms of radiculopathy were seen in 11 patients and cauda equine syndrome in three patients. Modic changes grade 1 was found in five patients, grade 2 in eight patients,grade 3 in one patient, Pfirmman grade 2 in eleven patients and grade 3 in three patients. Thecal sac compression 1/3 compression was seen in four patients and 2/3 compression in ten patients.Conclusions: Neurosurgeon should raise concerns on the characteristic changes of intervertebral disc in magnetic resonance imaging examination to avoid further neural injury in lumbar herniated disc patients.Keywords: Lumbar herniated disc, magnetic resonance imaging, progressive neurological deficit DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v5n2.1042

Abstract

Objective: To compare the effects of foot muscle strengthening exercises with and without elastic band to the dynamic balance function in children aged 8?12 years with flexible flatfeet.Methods: Forty-one children (aged 8?12 years) with flexible flatfeet and dynamic balance problem were randomly allocated into either the intervention or control group. Both groups received thrice weekly training for 6 weeks. The foot strengthening exercise regimens consisted of pronation, supination, short foot, and tiptoeing using elastic band for the intervention group and without elastic band for the control group. Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) was tested before and after 6 weeks of training. Results: A statistically significant difference of normalized SEBT scores was found for both groups in both legs (p=0.00, p<0.05). The intervention group was significantly better than the control group for both right and left legs (p=0.00, p<0.05). Conclusions: Foot muscle strengthening either with or without elastic band improves dynamic balance in children aged 8?12 years with flexible flatfeet. Exercise given with elastic band significantly shows better improvement in the dynamic balance compared to without elastic band.Keywords: Flexible flatfeet, strengthening exercises, elastic band, dynamic balance, star excursion balance test DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v3n1.404

Abstract

Objective: To determine the level of Selenium (Se) in peripheral and intracranial serum in pediatric patients with intracranial tumor. Selenium has chemopreventive potentials and acts as neuromodulator.Methods: This study was conducted on 13 pediatric patients with intracranial tumors who were treated in Dr. Hasan Sadikin Hospital, Bandung in the period of February 2014 to February 2015. Samples were taken from peripheral and intracranial serum. The results were analyzed with independent t-test and Pearson correlation test. Significance is defined as p?0.05 with 95% confidence interval.Results: The results showed that the average Se concentration in peripheral serum was significantly higher than the Se concentration in intracranial serum (95.92±20.95 ?g/L and 66.62±22.37 ?g/L, respectively). After classifying the subjects into groups based on sex, age, tumor location, and grades, the difference between Se concentrations were still statistically significant (p?0.05), with the exception of the supratentorial group (p=0.0053). Pearson correlation test showed very-low to medium strength correlations between peripheral and intracranial serum Se concentration in all groups (r=0.16?0.59, p>0.05).Conclusions: A significant difference is seen between the peripheral and intracranial serum Se concentration means in pediatric patients with intracranial tumors, with higher concentrations observed in the peripheral serum. Further studies are required to investigate the roles of Se in the management of pediatric patients with intracranial tumors.Keywords: Pediatric intracranial tumor patients, selenium concentration in peripheral and intracranial serum DOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v4n2.835

Abstract

Objective: To study the transformation point of meningeal and periosteal dural at the porus of internal acoustic canal (IAC) in order to verify the different thickness of meningeal and periosteal dura in vestibular schwannomas (VS). Methods: Three IAC cadaver specimens and ten samples of VS patients from porus were obtained and analyzed. Samples were stained by using Masson trichrome technique after cutting in 6 micron of thickness. The samples were then observed under light microscopes to understand the meninges pattern in the IAC. Results: The meningeal dura is becoming thin at the porus and disappears at the meatal portion to form epineurium. However, the periosteal dura is lining continuously to the fundus. In VS, the meningeal dura becomes thick and forms a pseudo-capsule in the middle of meatus, known as perineurium. The residual nerve filament was compressed by the tumor parenchyma. Between the tumor and nerve interface, three or more perineureal layers are seen. The perineurium in the cisternal portion was consistently loose and forms the tumor and arachnoid nerve interface. Almost all the nerve filaments are displaced to the tumor periphery near the pseudocapsule. In contrast, the periosteal dural of VS is becoming thin and disappear nearby the middle of meatal portion. This changing site establishes ?meningo-periosteal ring? of VS because of the encircling nearby the porus. Conclusions: In IAC, the meningeal dural becomes thin. The periosteal dura is lining continuously to the fundus. In VS, the meningeal dura becomes thick, joins perineurium and forms pesudocapsule near the porus, but the periosteal dura disappeared. This changing point is called meningo-periosteal ring.     Keywords: Meningeal,  periosteal, porus, vestibular schwannomasDOI: 10.15850/ijihs.v1n1.104
