  • Indications and immediate outcomes of tracheostomy in Rwanda

    • Authors: Niyonzima Charles, Kaitesi Batamuliza Mukara
      Abstract: Introduction: Tracheostomy is performed as an alternative to the natural breathing airways for upper airway obstruction, pulmonary toilet or for protecting the larynx. It is a common procedure in surgical departments.Objectives: The study aimed at evaluating the immediate outcomes of tracheostomy and the incidence of immediate complications associated with tracheostomy.Methods: Using a questionnaire, prospective data was collected from patients, who presented in Ear, Nose and Throat department at the Kigali University Teaching Hospital (KUTH).Results: 29 patients underwent a tracheostomy. The age rang was 4 to 77 years, mean of 37 years, 82.8% were aged above 18 years. Male to female ratio was 3.8:1. The incidence of tracheostomy was 9.5%. The most common indication was prolonged intubation accounting for 55.2% of cases. No intra -operative complications were noted. No tracheostomy related mortality occurred within 24 hours after the procedure. 86.2% patients were clinically stable after the procedure while 13.8% were unstable due to their primary medical conditions.Conclusion: Prolonged intubation is the most common indication for tracheostomy, most of the times performed as an elective procedure. The procedure is safe for all patients even in resource poor settings and post-operative complications are minimal.Keywords: Tracheostomy, Indications, Immediate outcome, Complications, Rwanda

  • The Canadian head CT rule; a hospital audit

    • Authors: John Kinyua
      Abstract: Background: Minor head trauma is one of the leading cause of emergency department visits worldwide. The Canadian Head CT-scan rule (CCHR) in minor head injury is an evidence-based aid in decision making as regards to use of CT-scans to detect head injury requiring neuro-intervention. It therefore avoids wastage of resources. The objective was to compare the number of CT-scans done for minor head injury as compared to the number that would have been done if the CCHR was applied.Methods: A retrospective study was done. All patients resenting with minor head injury (GCS 13-15) were identified from the hospital registry and their files obtained. Patients not meeting the CCHR criteria excluded. Ten parameters were extracted and tabulated.Results: Forty-one patients were included with three exclusions. 89% (n=34) of the patients presented with a 2-hour GCS of 13 or more. 11% (n=4) were suspicious of base skull fractures. 23% (n=9) had signs of open fracture. Vomiting was seen in 2 patients (5%).  The mean age of patients was 29 years. 2 patients (5%) reported amnesia. All the patients had a CT scan done. Fourteen patients would have required CT scans had the rule been used. Positive findings were noted in seven of the patients who qualified and in three who did not. This demonstrated a 50% positive predictive value, a negative predictive value of 89%, a sensitivity 70% and 75% specificity.Conclusion: Use of CCHR would reduce unnecessary use of CT scans in minor head injury in this setup.Keywords: Canadian, head, CT scan, rule, minor head injury

  • Open common bile duct exploration in a Nigerian tertiary hospital

    • Authors: Adewale Adisa, Olusegun Alatise, Olalekan Olasehinde, Bolanle Ibitoye, Olukayode Arowolo, Oladejo Lawal
      Abstract: Background: The prevalence of extra-hepatic biliary stones in Nigeria is unknown and its treatment frequently undocumented. We have observed an increase in bile duct exploration in our hospital.Methods: This is an eight-year retrospective report on consecutive patients who underwent common bile duct exploration. The diagnosis, pre-operative preparation, intra-operative findings and post-operative outcome were documented.Results: Forty-one patients were explored; 33 females (80.5%) and 8 (19.5%) males. Four had sickle cell anaemia. Pre-operative ultrasound showed common duct dilatation in 36 (87.8%), and choledocholithiasis in 29 (70.7%). Six patients did abdominal CT, 2 MRCP and none ERCP. Choledocholithiasis was operatively confirmed in 39 (95.1%) and dilated CBD without stones in 2. T-tube was inserted in 17 (41.5%) and primary closure of the common duct was done in 24 (58.5%). The meanduration of operation (102 vs 184 minutes) and hospital stay (10.6 vs 14.4 days) were less with primary closure.Conclusion: Common bile duct exploration is increasingly being performed in our center with a good outcome. There is increasing adoption of primary closure of the common bile duct in our setting.Keywords: Common bile duct, T- tube

  • Professor Saidi; founder of the SSK resident’s forum

    • Authors: James Waweru
      Abstract: The resident’s forum is a chapter of the surgical society of Kenya formed by the associate members who are by large surgical residents and medical officers with interest in surgery. It is a platform for continuous surgical education and networking among the associate members. This forum has had a great impact on surgical trainees in the country for now six years, since its inception by Professor Hassan. Professor Hassan held at heart, a great passion for teaching, his love and commitment was like no other. Despite the ever growing number of students both in medical school and residency, professor juggled mentoring his students with commitment amidst work and family life. This, he fulfilled faithfully when there was so much more for him to do. He championed as a premier luminary of clinical practice to hundreds of medical students and residents. His teachings represented the truth in medical practice, correcting errors and advancing towards standard practice. He became a mentor to many students in University of Nairobi medical school and residents in Nairobi and Aga Khan University.Keywords: Resident forum, Surgical society, Hassan Saidi

  • Contribution of Professor Saidi to surgical education in Kenya

    • Authors: Daniel Kinyuru Ojuka
      Abstract: Surgical education in Kenya has grown over the last 40 years from just one medical school to three and from being offered by university to now a combination of university and collegiate system. While the traditionally technical skills were the main focus in surgical training, non-technical skills such as interpersonal communication, professionalism, system-based learning, problem based learning and leadership skills have come to be core competencies. Apprenticeship was the method for training in technical and non-technical skills, but today there is explicit curriculum with various methods of training for both technical and non-technical skills. Professor Saidi contribution to the surgical education in Kenya was from traditional  aspects as well as newer aspects. His contribution to the transition from just skills training to the 21st century competency-based training, from basics to technology-based interventions cannot be overemphasized. This article is in memory of his contribution to surgical education in Kenya.Keywords: Surgical education, Competency-based learning, Mentorship

  • Diagnosing ileal atresia: the role of clinical correlation and plain
           radiography

    • Authors: Timothy Mwai Jumbi, Manvinder Singh Mann, Joel Kipyegon Lessan
      Abstract: Ileal atresia is a subset of congenital gastrointestinal malformations that result in neonatal bowel obstruction. We report a case of a 7-day old male neonate who presented with failure to pass meconium, abdominal distension and late onset bilious vomiting. A plain abdominal radiograph revealed dilated bowel loops with fluid levels of different sizes, the largest appearing as a fluid filled mass with an abrupt cut off. These findings were consistent with ileal atresia and the diagnosis was confirmed intra-operatively. This case description is aimed at emphasizing the role of clinical correlation and a plain abdominal radiograph in the diagnosis of ileal atresia which are two important modalities that have imaging modalities which delay management. The  diagnosis of ileal atresia can be suspected in the neonate who presents with failure to pass meconium, abdominal distension, late onset bilious vomiting and a plain abdominal radiograph with fluid levels of different sizes, the largest situated just proximal to the atretic zone.Keywords: Ileal atresia, plain radiograph, clinical assessment

  • Bilateral olecranon fracture and radio-humeral dislocation

    • Authors: Fred Kalande
      Abstract: Olecranon fractures constitute 10% of traumatic fractures in the upper limb however; bilateral traumatic olecranon fracture is rare. They follow a fall on a flexed elbow or strike on the point of the elbow or in patients with other systemic pathology such as Rheumatoid arthritis or sarcoidosis. Bilateral fractures with posterior radio humeral dislocation are even rarer and offer a management dilemma. We report one case of traumatic bilateral olecranon fractures with posterior radio-humeral dislocation without any concomitant systemic disease. After imaging studies, the olecranon fracture was classified using Mayo classification and the patient was prepared for surgery under general anesthesia. Tension band wiring fixation was performed on the left oblique olecranon fracture and contoured reconstruction  plate fixation was performed on the right comminuted fracture. The recovery was uneventful and through intense physiotherapy the elbow function was quite impressive. The patient was able to perform daily living activities on his own having achieved Mayo elbow score (MES) of 90 on the right and 85 on the left.Keywords: Bilateral Olecranon fracture, Radio-Humeral dislocation, Mayo classification

  • Schistosoma mansoni proctocolitis with polyposis

    • Authors: Fridah Bosire, Ian Orwa, Michael Mwachiro, Robert Parker, Russell White, Tenwek Hospital
      Abstract: Schistosoma proctocolitis is a rare disease entity, with limited literature on its occurrence. We report the case of a 17 year old male from an endemic area around Lake Victoria, Western Kenya, where detailed disease mapping of Schistosomiasis has been carried out. The patient presented with a seven year history of a protruding rectal mass and occasional hematochezia. Colonoscopy revealed multiple polyps involving the entire colon to the anus, and pathology showed inflammatory polyps secondary to Schistosoma  mansoni. He was successfully managed with medical therapy.Keywords: Schistosomiasis, Helminthiasis, Neglected Diseases, Colonoscopy, Colonic Polyps
