      Pages: 5 - 9
      Abstract: Background: Pregnancy and childbirth related complications are the leading causes of maternal mortality and morbidity in Bangladesh. An estimate shows that about 28,000 mothers die in each year in Bangladesh due to obstetric complications. The aim of this study was to find out the birth practice among rural women in Bangladesh.Material and Methods: This descriptive cross sectional study was carried out among 1220 respondents by purposive sampling technique from 2nd to 4th January, 2017 in different villages of Dhamrai Upazila, Dhaka. Data were collected by a structured questionnaire duly pretested through face to face interview. Data were analyzed manually and by using computer.Results: Then study revealed that majority of the respondents 80% were Muslims by religion and about 26% respondents were found within the age 25-29 years with mean age 31±7.59 years. Most of them 86% were literate and only 14% were found illiterate. Among the respondents 75% were Housewives and 11%, 9%, 1% and 4% were involved in Service, Business, Agriculture and others occupation respectively.

  • Psychological Impacts of Infertility Among Married Women Attending in a
           Tertiary Hospital, Dhaka

    • Authors: Md Julfikkar Alam, Md Mahfuzar Rahman, Nister E Afsana
      Pages: 10 - 14
      Abstract: Background: Infertility being a medical problem leads to various psychological problems. The stress of the non-fulfillment of a wish for a child has been associated with emotional sequel such as depression, anger, marital problems among infertile women. The study investigates the psychological impacts of infertility among married women suffering from infertility.Material and Methods: This cross sectional descriptive study was carried out on 112 purposively selected infertile married women in outpatient department of Kormitola General Hospital, Dhaka. The Goldberg Depression questionnaires (GDQ) and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) were administered to 112 married women with infertility. In addition to socio-demographic data, a structured questionnaire was used to collect obstetric information from the participants.Results: The study showed 70 (62.5%) infertile women showed different levels of depression (GDQ scale). Of these, 12 (10.7%) had minor to moderate and 36 (32.1%) had moderate to severe level of depression. According to BAI, 42 (37.5%) responded suffered with anxiety disorders among them 14 (12.5%) had moderate anxiety and 28 (25.0%) potentially concerning levels of anxiety. Infertile women are worst victim of psychological morbidities with increasing age. Study showed that about 54% infertile women of more than 31years of age were suffering from minor to severe depression. Women who were infertile lower than 5 years, had lowest psychological disorders (c2=21.34, P=.001 and c2=8.5, P=.01). About anxiety, women married for more than 11 years were the worst sufferer. Women neglected by their husband had a higher prevalence for psychiatric morbidity (c2=12.22, P=.002). Women suffering from infertility scored significantly higher on all outcome measures of psychopathology. The results of the multiple regression analysis showed that the socio-demographic variables of the women with infertility contributed to the prediction of psychiatric morbidity (GDQ sacle), because of the effects of age, not having at least one child and lack of support from husband. Monthly family income, negligence of husband and violence by in laws family were important predicator for anxiety. Type of family, low level of education, unemployment were not found to be predictors of mental ill health.Conclusion: Infertility is associated with high levels of psychiatric morbidity. Our findings reinforce the need of attention, counseling and others advance psychological interventions for positive impact on outcome during treatment of this group of women.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 10-14

  • Concurrent Carotid Endarterectomy and off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass
           Graft Surgery in Bangladesh: a Prospective Cohort Study

    • Authors: Redoy Ranjan, Dipannita Adhikary, Heemel Saha, Sanjoy Kumar Saha, Sabita Mandal, Kamrul Hasan, Asit Baran Adhikary
      Pages: 15 - 21
      Abstract: Background: A patient of ischemic coronary artery disease (IHD) with additional carotid artery stenosis (CAS) has been distinguished as a high risk group for both heart and cerebral inconveniences following surgical intervention. We review the outcome of concurrent carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and off-pump coronary bypass grafting (OPCABG)in a patient undergoing surgical revascularization for IHD and CAS in a single surgeons practice.Materials and Methods: In the vicinity of January 2012 and December2016,fifteen patients experienced OPCABG and CEA associatively in a single Surgeon's Practice. Majority 46.66% patient have 75-90% Carotid artery stenosis and 40%patients experienced right sided lesion, though 53.33% experienced left sided lesion. 33.33% patients were found Left main coronary artery disease (>50% lesion) and 100% patients have had significant LAD lesion in this study. CEA was performed before OPCABG in all cases.Result: Themean age was 62.5±2.8 years; 80% were male. 13.33% had a perioperative stroke while one of them had TIAs (6.6%). Mean ICU stay was 36.6±4.5 hours and patients were released in 10±2 days. There was no mortality in the early postoperative period and co-morbidity was less significant; only 6.6% myocardial ischemia, 13.33% Atrial fibrillation, 6.66% TIA, and 13.33% Stroke.Conclusion: A combined strategy by means of CEA with OPCABG is safe and savvy in view of the satisfactory consequences of morbidity and mortality rates and also short ICU and hospital stay status.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 15-21

  • A Study on Maternal Weight Gain and its Correlation with Birth Weight of
           Baby at Term

    • Authors: Shiffin Rijvi, Sharmin Abbasi, Anuradha Karmakar, Sehereen Farhad Siddiqua, Farhana Dewan
      Pages: 22 - 28
      Abstract: Background: Maternal weight gain is influenced by several trends in perinatal health that are of great public health concern. Maternal weight gain during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters is an important determinant of fetal growthObjective: To determine the relationship between maternal weight gain and birth weight of baby at term.Methodology : A cross sectional observational study was carried among 50 pregnant women at term were admitted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital and Anwer Khan Modern Medical College hospital during the period of January 2014 to July 2014. Data were collected pre-designed data collection sheet.Results: This study found maximum (36%) were age group 21-25 years followed by 28% were 20 years, 24% were 26-30 years, 8% were 31-35 years and only 4% were 36-40 years. The average age was 25 years. Among these 50 pregnant women, 2 cases (4%) had BMI <18.5, 15 cases (30%) had a BMI 18.5- 24.9, 19 cases (38%) had a BMI 25-29.9 and 14 cases (28%) had a BMI ≥30. The mean birth weight was 2.77±0.33. kg. Mean weight gain was 10.72±3.72 Kg. Weight increased there was a corresponding increase in the mean birth weight and this relationship was statistically significant (<0.05).Conclusion: This study shows maternal weight gain significantly increased birth weight of the baby at term. Maternal weight should continue to be given importance in monitoring the health of pregnancies and bioelectrical impedance analysis and arm measurements should be further investigated as another simple way to track appropriate body composition changes across gestation, especially in resource-limited settings. Although challenging, public health efforts should continue working to improve the nutritional status of women of reproductive age before they conceive as an apparent way to improve birth outcomes.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 22-28

  • Relationship Between Serum Ferritin Level and Hba1c in Bangladeshi Type 2
           Diabetic Patients

    • Authors: Farhana Khondker, Manindra Nath Roy, Purnima Rani Saha, Rubena Huq, Rumana Ahmed, Sumona Biswas
      Pages: 29 - 33
      Abstract: Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2 is one of the most common endocrine disorders affecting more than 135 million people in the world. The etiology of the disease is not fully understood, but recently subclinical hemochromatosis has been considered as one of the probable causes of DM. This study was carried out to examine the relationship between serum ferritin as a marker of iron overload with DM and HbA1c.Materials & Method: This study was conducted in the Biochemistry department of Sir Salimullah Medical College, Dhaka; over a period of 18 months from July 2013 to December 2014. In this case control study, 46 patients with type 2 diabetes were taken as case, who were referred to theoutpatient department of "Ibrahim General Hospital & Diabetic care & Educational Center"(DCEC). 46 normal individuals were included as the control group, who were matched with the case group regarding age, sex, BMI and Hb%. Ferritin, hemoglobin, HbA1c and fasting plasma sugar were measured in blood samples. Exclusion criteria included anaemia, or any other disease or drug that could affect ferritin levels.Result: Results were analyzed statistically by Chi-square test, Student's t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient test and Odds ratio.Mean serum ferritin was significantly higher in diabetics than in the control group (197.97±75.99 µgm/L vs. 64.24±27.83 µgm/L, p<0.001). There was significant positive correlation between serum ferritin and HbA1cin diabetic patients (p<0.001). In this study, OR of 11.64 was also found.Conclusion: Serum ferritin is positively correlated with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. And this may be an important and independent predictor for development of diabetes mellitus.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 29-33

      Abstract: Background: Heavy metals like chromium compounds can be carcinogenic usually used in the tanning process during leather production. Chromium is an important health risk factor for the tannery workers which may enter the body by inhalation, ingestion and by direct cutaneous contact and cause several health problems of skin and respiratory tract. With the increase of unplanned industries, Bangladesh poses a new challenge to combat health hazards associated with heavy metal toxicity in soil.Objective: The present study was designed to find out possible toxic effects of heavy metals in soil and health hazards among the people residing at tannery industries area.Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive cross-sectional study and was carried out in two phases during the period of 1st November 2009 to 30 June 2010. In first phase the soil samples were taken from lagoons of Hazaribagh Thana of Dhaka city for laboratory test of heavy metals. In second phase, a total 190 respondents were interviewed using a semi-structured questionnaire to ascertain the common health problem around the tannery industries.Results: All the eight soil samples contained Cr, Mn, Ni, Fe, Pb, Cu, where as Cd was nil. Mean distributor of Cr, Mn, Ni, Fe, Pb and Cu was 43.1325, 354.2217, 28.6633, 22420.1867, 97.5833 and 53.4633 ppm respectively. 75.26% respondents stayed in the study area for six to ten years. Most of the respondents (75) were tannery workers. Total 52.85% households had toxicity related sickness in last six months. Among tannery workers most prevalent sickness were conjunctivitis (7.7%) and Dermatitis (6.7%). Regarding occurrence of clinical manifestations similar to Chromium toxicity in relation to staying in the study area, most of the households complained about allergy (39.2%) and abdominal discomfort (24.4%).Conclusion: Elevated levels of urinary and blood Chromium is associated with high morbidity among the tannery workers. Therefore bio-monitoring of the heavy metals in the exposed workers is considered as a useful tool.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 39-43

      Abstract: Background: Menopausal health in our environment has received little attention. As a independent risk factor for dyslipidemia, the degree and pattern of derangement, though difficult to assess may adversely affect the cardiovascular health of our women.Objectives: To estimate the serum lipid profile and the atherogenic index of plasma among the pre and post- menopausal women.Materials and Methods: After an overnight fasting blood samples were collected from a group of 339 women, 140 premenopausal aged between 25-50 years and 199 postmenopausal aged between 51-70 years. Serum total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG) and HDL-cholesterol were estimated by enzymatic methods and LDL-cholesterol by established mathematical methods. Atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) were calculated by using the formula (logTG/HDL-C). Statistical analysis was carried out in the two groups using the unpaired t test. Results were expressed as mean±SD. P values <0.05 were considered to be statistically significant.Results: There were statistically significant increase in serum TC (191.21±45.50 mg/dl), TG (185.83± 111.83 mg/dl) and LDL-C (118.71±38.48 mg/dl) in post-menopausal women. Their HDL-C level (38.67±10.00mg/dl) was significantly decreased. The calculated atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) was significantly higher (0.63±0.27) in post-menopausal women as compared to that in premenopausal women (0.50±0.29).Conclusion: Menopause leads to changes in lipid profile. By elevating LDL and the reduction of cardioprotective HDL is an indication that menopause is an independent risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease. These changes are caused by loss of cardio-protective effect of oestrogen.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 44-49

      Abstract: Background: In Bangladesh the neonatal mortality rate is unacceptably high, at 48.4 per 1,000 live births and it is higher in rural areas while the neonatal mortality rate in Asia is 41 per 1,000 live-births, compared to 7 per 1,000 live-births in developed countries.Materials & Methods: This descriptive type of cross sectional study was carried out among 180 rural mothers of reproductive age in Mymensingh Medical College Hospital, Mymensingh from October 2013 to January 2014. Data were collected on a pretested questionnaire by face to face interview.Results: The study revealed that 50.6% of the respondents were housewife & education wise 42.2% had primary education with mean age 26.28±5.50 years. 61% respondents knew that cord should be cut by sterile blade and 65% respondents mentioned that cord should be cut immediate after delivery. Among them 44.4% knew about initiation of breast feeding within 1st hour of delivery, 71.1% believed the importance of colostrums feeding. Only 30% of the respondents knew about frequency of breast feeding to the baby should be 8-10 times in a day and 58% had knowledge on exclusive breast feeding. Of the respondents 52.2% went for exclusive breast feeding but others did not. 67% respondents immunized their baby whereas 33% did not. More than half of the respondents (59%) cleaned their breast before feeding and 80.6% respondents washed their hands before handling their newborn. A significant association was found between education and knowledge on immunization of newborn (P=0.000), education and exclusive breast feeding (P=0.003).Conclusion: The current study may boost up the awareness among rural mothers of reproductive age group on neonatal care which will further encourage them to be educated and thus neonatal morbidity & mortality may decline in some extent.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 50-56

      Abstract: Background: Pregnancy and childbirth related complications are the leading causes of maternal mortality and morbidity in Bangladesh. An estimate shows that about 28,000 mothers die in each year in Bangladesh due to obstetric complications. The aim of this study was to find out the birth practice among rural women in Bangladesh.Material and Methods: This descriptive cross sectional study was carried out among 1220 respondents by purposive sampling technique from July 2016 to June 2017 in different Private Hospital, Dhaka. Data were collected by a structured questionnaire duly pretested through face to face interview. Data were analyzed manually and by using computer.Results: Then study revealed that majority of the respondents 80% were Muslims by religion and about 26% respondents were found within the age 25-29 years with mean age 31±7.59 years. Most of them 86% were literate and only 14% were found illiterate. Among the respondents 75% were Housewives and 11%, 9%, 1% and 4% were involved in Service, Business, Agriculture and others occupation respectively. Moreover, 78% respondents monthly income were less than TK 3000. About 43% & 16% respondents were found to have 2 & 3 children respectively. In this study, about 73% received antenatal visit and among them 57% received 1 to 3 antenatal visits and 74% received TT immunizations. It was found that 69%, 54% and 59% received antenatal advices on healthy diet, personal hygiene, drug use respectively. Home delivery and Hospital delivery practice were found among 44% & 56% respondents respectively. The reasons for home delivery like Feeling comfortable, Family decision and Financial problem were found in 60%, 26% & 42% respondents respectively. The most common complications during last delivery were obstructed labor, found among 39% respondents.Conclusion: Still now women prefer home delivery. Major reasons for home delivery were Feeling comfortable, Family decisions and Financial problems. Delivery conduction by qualified doctors were found only among 47% women. Efforts needed to increase maternal health related knowledge and awareness towards birth practice to facilitate decision in minimizing complications and mortality.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 57-62

  • Mycophenolate Mofetil versus Cyclophosphamide for Induction Treatment of
           Lupus Nephritis

    • Authors: Nazneen Mahmood, Farhana Mahmood, Shamima Islam Shumi, Md Mahmudur Rahman Siddiqui
      Pages: 63 - 67
      Abstract: Recent studies have suggested that mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) may offer advantages over intravenous cyclophosphamide (IVC) for the treatment of lupus nephritis, but these therapies have not been compared in an international randomized, controlled trial. Here, the comparison of MMF and IVC as induction treatment for active lupus nephritis in a multinational, two-phase (induction and maintenance) study was shown in the different study. Lupus nephritis (LN) occurs in up to 60% of adults with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and predicts poor survival. The prevalence of SLE and LN and treatment response vary by age, gender, location, and race/ethnicity; LN is especially common in black and Hispanic patients in the United States. MMF was at least as effective as IVC in induction treatment in previous trials in Hong Kong, Malaysia, China, and the United States. Meta-analyses of these and smaller trials suggested that MMF may offer advantages over IVC, but they have not yet been compared in an international randomized, controlled trial. Many comparative studies were undertaken in patients with LN, a two-part trial to assess the efficacy and safety of MMF as induction therapy and subsequently as maintenance therapy for LN. This article will describe the comparison of MMF with IVC, both with corticosteroids.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 63-67

    • Authors: Shamim Rima, Md Tarik Aziz, Rumana Amin, M Afsar Abedin
      Pages: 68 - 70
      Abstract: Holoprosencephaly, a disorder resulting from failure of cleavage or incomplete differentiation of the forebrain structures at various levels or to various degrees, is related to hereditary factors, chromosomal anomalies, cytogenetic abnormalities, and environmental teratogenic factors. This anomaly is resulted from the failure of diverticulation and cleavage of primitive prosencephalon during weeks 4-8 of gestation. In this study, we described a case of HPE in a neonate with gestational age of 35 weeks.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 68-70

           Infarction

    • Authors: Sanwar Hossain, Titus Leonard Guda, Forhad Chowdhury, Md Somir Hossain
      Pages: 71 - 74
      Abstract: Internuclear Ophthalmoplegia (INO) is a clinical syndrome which develops due to a lesion in the medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF). It is a horizontal gaze disorder characterized by impaired adduction of eye on the side of the lesion of medial longitudinal fasciculus with dissociated nystagmus of the opposite abducting eye. This lesion is mostly caused by multiple sclerosis (usually bilateral lesion), stroke and tumours. A case with unilateral internuclear ophthalmoplegia due to vascular lesion was admitted in Anwer Khan Modern Medical College & Hospital on 27/05/2017.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 71-74

  • A Rare Case of Triple Malignancy: Non Hodgkin Lymphoma, Carcinoma of
           Breast and Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Tongue in a Single Patient

    • Authors: Md Ehteshamul Haque, Shahnaz Karim, Md Mahmudur Rahman Siddiqui, Mayesha Kareem, Amena Khatun
      Pages: 75 - 78
      Abstract: We are reporting a case of having triple malignancy including Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL), Carcinoma breast, Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the tongue. Triple malignancy is a very rare occurrence. Cancer patient are at increased risk of developing a subsequent primary tumour. Prevalence of multiple primary malignancies is slowly increasing due to prolonged survival of cancer patients with advances in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. The reasons may be environmental modifications, genetic predisposition or therapy-induced. People who have had non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) can get any type of second cancer, but they have an increased risk of certain cancers, including carcinoma lung, skin, tongue, bladder, colon, kidney etc. Radiation therapy to the chest increases the risk of breast cancer.Anwer Khan Modern Medical College Journal Vol. 9, No. 1: Jan 2018, P 75-78
