  • Outcome of treatment of OPC poisoning patients with atropine or atropine
           plus pralidoxime

    • Authors: SM Kamal, Shamima Akhter, Sk Farid Uddin Ahmed, Poritosh Kumar Chowdhury, AKM Mamunur Rashid, Md Nazrul Islam
      Pages: 3 - 7
      Abstract: Background: Organophosphorus compound (OPC) poisoning is common in Bangladesh and management facility is not adequate in most hospitals. Both inj. Atropine and inj. Pralidoxime is used as antidote for the management of OPC poisoning, although there is controversy regarding benefit of inj. Pralidoxime.Objective: This randomised clinical trial was conducted to compare the outcome of OPC poisoning patients treated by inj. Atropine along with supportive measures and by inj. Atropine plus inj. Pralidoxime along with supportive measures . This study also evaluated the clinical profile of OPC poisoning patients.Methods: A total number of 109 patients, admitted in medicine ward in Khulna medical college hospital during one year period were included in this randomised clinical trial. The patients were divided into two groups according to alternate day of admission in the medicine wards. Forty nine patients of group A was treated by inj. atropine only along with other supportive measures required and group B of 60 patients was treated by inj. atropine plus inj. pralidoxime along with supportive measures.Results: 49 patients of group A was treated with atropine alone and 60 patients in group B was treated with atropine plus pralidoxime. Death rate was 14.28% in atropine treated group and 16.66% in atropine plus pralidoxime treated group (p=0.733). The difference in death rate is not statistically significant. Four (8.18%) patients from atropine treated group and 4 (6.67%) patients from pralidoxime intervention group developed respiratory failure and ventilatory support was given in ICU. These 8 patients recovered. But this difference in development of respiratory failure is not statistically significant (p=0.766). The difference of death rate between male and female (12.5% Vs 18.87%) is not also significant (p=0.360).Conclusion: This study reveals that pralidoxime provides no better outcome in the management of OPC poisoning patients.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 3-7

  • Nosocomial infection in a tertiary military hospital in Dhaka

    • Authors: Zulfiquer Ahmed Amin, Nazmoon Nahar
      Pages: 8 - 12
      Abstract: Background: Microbial agents in the hospital environment and other patients increase the morbidity and mortality of the hospitalized patients and cause increase in cost of care, wastage of scarce medical resources prolonged hospitalization and render non availability of scarce hospital beds to the needy.Objective: To find out the prevalence of Nosocomial Infection (NI), its risk factors and pattern of organisms.Method: This descriptive cross sectional study was conducted among the surgical patients of all age and sex at Combined Military Hospital, Dhaka. The study was conducted from 5 April 2014 to 12 April 2015.Results: A total of 360 respondents were available in different surgical wards during data collection period and 30 respondents developed nosocomial infection, thus the prevalence rate was 8.33%. The mean age of the respondents was 36.89 years with standard deviation of (±) 14.54 years. Among the nosocomial infection cases, 53.33% were surgical site infections and 50% were caused by Escherichia coli. The study found that frequency of nosocomial infection was more common among those who required assistance for most activities (40%), who had visitors more than 3 per day (81.3%), who had underlying illness like diabetes mellitus (25%), who had invasive devices (9.5%), who were admitted in ICU (12.9%), who received immunosuppressive therapy (23.5%), who had immunosuppressive conditions (28.1%), who had emergency operation (34.8%), and who had undergone general surgery (19.0%). Findings suggest that association between nosocomial infection and number of visitors, admission in ICU, immunosuppressive conditions, use of immunosuppressive therapy, use of invasive devices, and different functional state of patients were statistically significant (p<0.05).Conclusion: Measures are required for increasing awareness of hospital staffs, formulation of policy on use and duration of use of invasive devices establishing a surveillance system and controlling visitors for effective control of nosocomial infection.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 8-12

  • Evaluation of scrotal reconstruction with thigh flap

    • Authors: Md Tarikul Islam, Palash Kumar Dey, Abu Hena Mustafa Kamal, Md Farid Uddin
      Pages: 13 - 17
      Abstract: Background: Scrotal skin can be lost in many ways. Partial loss of scrotum is easy to manage but major scrotal skin loss represents a significant challenge to the reconstructive surgeon. Although many techniques have been established for the treatment of major scrotal defects, each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages in specific situations.Objective: The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the outcome of thigh fascio-cutaneous flap for reconstruction of major scrotal loss with exposed testis.Methods: This prospective study was done for 5 years extending from January 2012 to December 2016. In this period we reconstructed major scrotal defects of eight patients with antero medial and pudendal thigh fascio-cutaneous flap in Burn and Plastic Surgery department, Khulna Medical College Hospital. Total eleven thigh fascio-cutaneous flaps were used for reconstruction of major scrotal defects.Results: The mean patient age was 41 years (range 24 to 62 years). The aetiology of scrotal loss was Fournier's gangrene in 4 cases and trauma in 4 cases. Three cases had bilateral and five cases had unilateral flap reconstruction. The flaps allowed sensate coverage and took well. Primary donor site closure obviated the need for skin grafts in most of the cases, Complications were flap tip necrosis (12.50%) and minor wound infection (12.50%) which were treated conservatively. Donor site scar was limited and acceptable. The flap had good aesthetic appearance except in one fatty patient where the flaps were bulky.Conclusion: The study concluded that thigh fascio-cutaneous flap is very reliable for coverage of major scrotal defects.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 13-17

  • Causal factors and treatment outcome of genitourinary fistula in a
           teaching hospital

    • Authors: Muckti Kaniz Fatema, Eti Saha, Fouzia Begum, Shamsun Nahar Lucky, Farzana Rahman
      Pages: 18 - 21
      Abstract: Background: Urogenital fistula, majority of which is vesicovaginal fistula is a public health problem especially of developing countries. It is commonly caused by prolonged and obstructed labor. With the advancement of health care delivery system etiology of urogenital fistula is changing in our country.Objective: This study was done to find out the causal factors and to determine the success rate of operative procedure for treatment of urogenital fistula.Method: This was an observational type of cross sectional study, carried out in Department of Obs and Gynae in Khulna Medical College Hospital from January 2013 to June 2014 among 30 women at different ages suffering from urogenital fistula due to gynaecological or obstetrical causes or malignancy.Result: Majority of the patients were young primipara, short stature and malnourished, coming from lower socioeconomic condition of rural areas. Prolonged labor 12 (40%) was the most common cause of urogenital fistula, followed by gynaecological surgeries mainly hysterectomies 9 (30%) and malignancy 2 (6.6%) rare cause. The success rate of repair following first and second attempt was 92% and 8% respectively. Overall success rate was 24 (96%) and functionally failed with a failure in 1 (4%) cases. This study showed main cause for developing fistula showing prolonged labor and majority of patient were treated pervaginally. Most of the cases (96%) had successful repair which is very encouraging and correlates well with recently published series.Conclusion: Fistula can be totally preventable by proper antenatal care, identification of high risk cases, timely referral, proper intranatal, postnatal care, and proper training. So improvement of health care services and dedication will prevent this type of morbidity. The best results are obtained when repair of urogenital. fistulae is carried out under optimal conditions.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 18-21

    • Authors: Shikha Kabir, Md Shahidul Basher, Tanzina Latif, SM Nahida Akhter, Lutfun Nahar, Simla Aftab Shaon
      Pages: 22 - 25
      Abstract: Background: Hyperemesis gravidarum is the most severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy with poor pregnancy outcome. Hormonal, psychological, immunological, and infection with H. pylori contribute to the condition.Objective: To estimate the weight loss in women with Hyperemesis gravidarum.Methods: A descriptive, cross sectional study was carried out at antenatal ward, Mymensingh Medical College Hospital, Mymensingh for a period of twenty one months among purposively selected thirty-six patients with hyperemesis gravidarum admitted into the hospital.Results: Highest number (16-44.4%) of respondents were in age group 20 to 24 years with a mean of 23.8 ± 4.5 years. Majority 29 (80.6%) of the women had education less than 12 years, whereas as many as 28 (77.8%) women were housewives, and at least 14 (38.9%) women had unplanned pregnancies. An overwhelming majority 29 (80.6%) of women had their pregnancy duration of 8 to 12 weeks with a mean of 10.6 ± 2.4 weeks. Majority 20 (55.6%) of women were pregnant for the first time, while 19 (52.8%) women had duration of illness for 5 to 9 weeks. Mean difference in body weight was 3.9 ± 2.0 Kg. The loss of weight ranged from 3 to 8 kilograms with a mean of 3.9 ± 1.4 Kg. Loss of weight ranged from 5.0 to 16.7 percent with a mean 7.9 ± 2.8 percent. Out of 16 multigravid women, 7 (43.8%) had history of similar condition in their previous pregnancies.Conclusion: First trimester was time of manifestation of the condition. Patient with Hyperemesis gravidarum often presents with vomiting over 10 times a day with dehydration and remarkable loss of body weight.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 22-25

  • Role of ultrasound and color Doppler in the evaluation of acute scrotal

    • Authors: Gazi Salahuddin, SM Zulker Nayeem, Syed Mozammel Hossain, Sadika Parvin, Md Monoar Hossain
      Pages: 26 - 30
      Abstract: Background: Traditionally acute scrotal pain is evaluated by gray scale ultrasound, which dissipated only the morphological changes of the lesion. But pattern of vascularity either normal, increased or absent of affected structure help to definitive diagnosis of the lesion and help to proceed the type of management either medical therapy or surgical treatment.Objectives: To determine the relative importance of color Doppler in the evaluation of acute scrotal pain by ultrasound.Methods: From June 2013 to June 2017 a total 150 patients with acute scrotal pain were selected. A thorough history taking and physical examination were done. Then patient were scanned with gray scale ultrasound followed by color Doppler study. Color Doppler diagnosis is compared with gray scale diagnosis.Results: In gray scale ultrasonography among the 150 cases, 54% were diagnosed as epididymitis, 16.66% were epididymo-orchitis and 16% patient diagnosed as normal. But in combined gray scale and colour Doppler study 58% were diagnosed as epididymitis, 22% were epididymo-orchitis and 6% of patient diagnosed as normal. In gray scale 10% patient were diagnosed as normal but become epididymitis and epididymo-orchitis in colour Doppler. Four percent were diagnosed as epididymitis in gay scale but became epididymo-orchitis in colour Doppler. Four percent patient was diagnosed as epididymitis orchitis but became testicular torsion in Doppler study. Total 14.66% of gray scale diagnosis became another diagnosis in the Doppler study.Conclusion: Combined gray scale and color Doppler study is superior than gray scale ultrasound in differentiating various cause of acute scrotal pain.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 26-30

    • Authors: Amar Kumar Saha, Sunil Kumar Biswas, HM Zafor Sharif, Md Saiful Islam
      Pages: 31 - 34
      Abstract: Background: Meconium ileus is a common form of congenital intestinal obstruction. The condition results from the accumulation of sticky inspissated meconium in distal ileum. In about half the cases, however, the pathologic condition is complicated by volvulus, gangrene, perforation with meconium peritonitis. Relief of the obstruction is commonly accomplished with a variety of operative procedures. A number of operative procedures are in use, including Bishop-Koop enterostomy, Mikulicz ileostomy and primary closureObjective: Aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of meconium ileus and its complications in two commonly practiced enterostomy procedure.Method: In this retrospective study from July 2007 to Jun 2017, a total of 52 cases of meconium ileus were included. Diagnosis of suspected cases was confirmed after laparotomy. Two commonly practiced ileostomy procedure were Mikulicz ileostomy and Bishop Koop ileostomy in this study. Survivors of all primary enterostomy underwent ileostomy closure after 3-6 months.Result: Mikulicz enterostomy was done in 38 cases and Bishop Koop ileostomy in 14 cases. After primary ileostomy 5 patients died following Mikulicz ileostomy and 2 after Bishop Koop ileostomy Among the 41 cases those who reached ileostomy closure, 35 were survived.Conclusion: Complications were more common after Mikulicz ileostomy and difficult to manage in our observation. Overall survival of meconium ileus was 66% in our study without any facilities of intensive neonatal care.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 31-34

  • Acute pancreatitis- a clinical update

    • Authors: Md Abdul Ahad
      Pages: 35 - 40
      Abstract: Acute pancreatitis is an acute inflammatory process of the pancreas that can range from mild interstitial pancreatitis to severe pancreatitis with pancreatic necrosis with variable involvement of regional tissues and remote organ systems. The incidence of pancreatitis varies in different countries and depends on causes e.g, gallstones, alcohol, metabolic factors and viral infections. Gall stones continue to be the leading cause of acute pancreatitis in most series. Alcohol, hypertriglyceridemia and drugs are also a common cause of acute pancreatitis. Gall stone pancreatitis is more common in women than in men. Alcohol is also a common cause of acute pancreatitis. Alcoholic pancreatitis is more common in men, and usually occurs in individuals with long standing alcohol abuse. The increased frequency of acute pancreatitis may be due to the rising incidence of obesity, a risk factor for the development of gallstones and by extension, gallstone pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis occurs when there is abnormal activation of digestive enzymes within the pancreas. This occurs through inappropriate activation of inactive enzyme precursors called zymogens or proenzymes inside the pancreas, most notably trypsinogen. Acute pancreatitis is typically rapid in onset and most commonly encountered in its mild form. While mild cases are often successfully treated with conservative measures, such as fasting and aggressive intravenous fluid rehydration, severe cases may require admission to the intensive care unit or even surgery to deal with complications of the disease process. Acute pancreatitis may be accompanied by life threatening complications as well as significant morbidity and mortality despite treatment.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 35-40

    • Authors: Sk Moazzem Hossain, Farjana Kabir, SM Kamal, Debasish Kumar Ghosh
      Pages: 41 - 43
      Abstract: Ewing's sarcoma is an uncommon malignant bone tumour occuring in children, adolescents and young adults. We report a case of a 13 year old male admitted to Khulna Medical College Hospital with history of pain and swelling in chest wall for two weeks. Earlier chest X-ray showed a mass lesion in the left upper part of chest wall and erosion of first rib. Subsequent X-ray revealed left sided massive pleural effusion. CT scan revealed a mass lesion in the left upper part of chest wall originated from left first rib and left sided pleural effusion. FNAC from the mass lesion revealed features suggestive of Ewing's sarcoma. Patient was treated with chemotherapy and after first cycle there was significant improvement of all the signs and symptoms.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 41-43

  • Cutaneous atypical mycobacteriosis

    • Authors: Razia Sultana, Md Wahiduzzaman
      Pages: 44 - 45
      Abstract: Mycobacterium chelonae rarely causes skin infection, usually after minor trauma. A 44 year old lady complained of skin rashes on left lateral back above the flank for 6 months. Physical examination showed multiple papulo-pustular eruption and sinus on an erythematous base. Repeated histopathological examination did not give any authentic clue. Ultimately on clinical ground and therapeutic trial, it was diagnosed as rapidly growing atypical mycobacterial (Mycobacterium chelonae) infection.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 44-45

  • Fanconi anemia

    • Authors: Forrukh Ahammad, Habiba Sultana Rupa, AKM Mamunur Rashid, Choudhury Habibur Rasul
      Pages: 46 - 48
      Abstract: Fanconi Anemia (FA) is a rare potentially life threatening autosomal recessive disorder characterized by progressive pancytopenia, multiple congenital anomalies with multiple type of cancer risk. The presentation may be variable but typical presentation make the diagnosis easy. Diagnosis of FA can be confirmed by chromosome break study which is regarded as the gold standard diagnostic test for FA. Only one case report of FA had been published from Bangladesh till now. Here is the second variety of FA. If FA is confirmed then a set of preventive strategy can be applied. On the other hand misdiagnosis may lead to mismanagement which is not uncommon.Bang Med J (Khulna) 2017; 50 : 46-48
