    • Authors: Sakhawat Mahmud Khan, Shahin Akhter, SAM Golam Kibria, Isteaq Ahmed Shamim, Shireen Akhter Khanam
      Pages: 7 - 10
      Abstract: Background: To compare the shock wave parameters of in situ ESWL & ESWL after push back for upper ureteric calculi.Methods: This hospital based prospective study was carried out in the Department of Urology, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Dhaka from January 2006 to December 2006. For this study, 90 patients were selected according to the selection criteria. They were divided into two groups. Group 1 included 50 patients treated by in situ ESWL and group 2 included 40 patients treated by push back and ESWL. For statistical analysis, student’s t- test & chi-square test were performed.Results: In group 1 and in group 2 patients mean age were 34.86±11.74 years and 35.12± 12.48 years respectively. In group 1: Over all clearance of calculi was 92.86% in 1cm stones and 86.36% in 1cm stones (p>0.05). In group 2: Total clearance was 100% in stones <1cm size and 88% in1cm size stones (p>0.05). Although clearance rate was higher in push back group it was not statistically significant (92.5% Vs.90%) (p>0.05). Number of ESWL session in case of <1 cm size stone were 1.54 in group 1 and 1.46 in group 2. In case of 1 cm size stone, it was 1.77 in group 1, 1.48 in group 2 (p>0.05). Considering the requirement of shock wave number, less shock wave were required in group 2 (1757.50 ± 255.09) than group 1 (1994 ± 449.22) (p < 0.01). Mean energy needed in group I was 5.07±0.81 and in group 2 it was 4.63±0.48 (p<0.01).Conclusion: Although more ESWL sessions were required in group 1 than group 2, it was not statistically significant. But mean shock wave number and energy were higher in group 1 than group 2 which was statistically significant.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 7-10

  • High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) Status in Patient's of
           Acute ST–Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI)

    • Authors: Mohammad Kafil Uddin, Farhena Ahmed, Md Kamal Hossain, Monira Khatun, Mohammad Musa Meah
      Pages: 11 - 14
      Abstract: Background : Decrease plasma High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) and increase triglyceride are major dyslipidemia in our country due to effects of carbohydrate rich diet. The relationship of low level of HDL –C in patient’s of AMI and its extents of severity in coronary artery disease will be very important for future management as well as prevention of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).Objective : The aim of this study is to assess the level of serum HDL-C in AMI patient and to assess whether low serum HDL-C level is an independent risk factor for acute ST elevation MI.Methods : It is a hospital based cross sectional observational study. 280 patients of acute STEMI who are admitted in coronary care unit selected for study. After estimation of serum lipid profile of these patients their serum level of HDL-C were used to detect the relationship between serum HDL-C and acute ST elevation MI. Results : In our study, among the case group (280 patiens) lipid profile estimation showed that about 64% patients of acute STEMI have low level of serum HDL-C. The other lipid fractions like triglyceride, low density lipoprotein cholesterol as well as total cholesterol were high in about 24%,39% & 44% but normal in 76%, 61% & 56% respectively.Conclusion : There is an independent inverse association of serum HDL-C in patients of acute STEMI and its an important indepedent risk factor.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 11-14

  • Effects of Haemodialysis on Red Cell Indices and Haematocrit in Chronic
           Kidney Disease Patients

    • Authors: Mohammed Nasim Uddin Chowdhury, Monira Khatun, Pradip Kumar Dutta, Nayeema Akhter
      Pages: 15 - 18
      Abstract: Background: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is an escalating public health problem throughout the developed and developing world. Haemodialysis influences the transport of water through the erythrocyte membrane and induces morphologic and functional modifications.Objective: This study is aimed at to show the effects of haemodialysis on red cell indices and haematocrit in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients receiving Maintenance Haemodialysis (MHD) during haemodialysis (HD) process in their post-dialysis blood samples. Methods: It is a Hospital based, crosssectional comparative study. The study population consisted of 40 patients of diagnosed case of chronic kidney disease patients on haemodialysis in the Department of Nephrology, Chittagong Medical College Hospital, Chittagong. The haematological changes before and after the ending of haemodialysis procedure were studied by complete blood count study by automated analyzer. Data were analyzed by statistical methods (Paired sample t-test).Results: In our study the predialysis and post-dialysis sample showed the mean(±SD) MCV(fl) was 96.20(±11.57)fl and 92.80(±10.75)fl respectively. This shows highly significant difference between mean of pre-dialysis and post-dialysis MCV(fl) level (p=0.001). In pre-dialysis and post-dialysis sample the mean(±SD) MCH(pg) was 29.10(±3.62)pg and 28.79(±3.77)pg respectively. This shows no significant difference between mean of pre-dialysis and post-dialysis MCH(pg) level (p=0.236). In pre-dialysis and post-dialysis sample the mean(±SD) MCHC(g/dL) was 29.25(±3.69)g/dL and 30.25(±3.57) gm/dL respectively. This shows highly significant difference between mean of pre-dialysis and post-dialysis MCHC(g/dL) level (p=0.003). In pre-dialysis and post-dialysis sample the mean(±SD) Haematocrit/PCV(%) was 26.46(±7.34)% and 27.39(±8.07)% respectively. This shows no significant difference between mean of pre-dialysis and post-dialysis Haematocrit/PCV(%) level (P=0.157).Conclusion: The results of this study revealed that significant morphological changes, specially, regarding MCV occurs in patients receiving MHD during HD process in their post-dialysis blood samples along with consequent changes in MCHC. And all these findings are consistent with each other.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 15-18

           Rectal Prolapse in Children: Our Experience

    • Authors: Md Mozammel Hoque, Alauddin Ahmed, Alak Nandy
      Pages: 19 - 21
      Abstract: Background: Rectal prolapse is a relatively common condition in children. A wide variety of sclerosing agents have been used in the treatment of rectal prolapse in children. We have used 5 % phenol in almond oil in the treatment of rectal prolapse in our children. The aim of this study was to find out the outcome of injection sclerotherapy with 5% phenol in almond oil in the treatment of rectal prolapse in children.Methods: From May 2009 to December 2016 a total of 186 patients with rectal prolapse were treated by injection sclerotherapy with 5% phenol in almond oil. Of which males were 112 and females 74. Age ranged from 1.5 years to 7 years. Initial management included assessment and correction of predisposing factors. If the rectal prolapse persisted or if the prolapse required repeated reduction, injection sclerotherapy was performed. Number of injections, recurrences, and complications were reviewed.Results: Out of 186 patients recurrence occurred in 12 patients, cured after second injection in 10 patients and 2 children needs Thiersch’s stitch. Excessive oozing at the injection site was in 5 patients.Conclusion: Injection sclerotherapy with 5% phenol in almond oil is simple, safe and effective treatment of recurrent rectal prolapse after failure to conservative measures.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 19-21

    • Authors: Abu Tarek Iqbal, M Jalal Uddin, Shaikh Md Hasan Mamun, Rajat Sankar Roy Biswas
      Pages: 26 - 28
      Abstract: Background: Many studies were conducted on the subject in home and abroad but there is none in Chittagong, Bangladesh. To know about top three risk factors for coronary artery disease we conducted the study.Methods: It was a retrospective study. Records of a private cardiac center from July 2013 to June 2014 was collected. Only coronary stenosed cases (As per angiogram) was studied. Age, sex, BMI, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, smoking and other risk factors were considered. Collected data was managed manually. Finally discussion was made and conclusion was done.Results: Majority cases 58(76%) were of 40-60 years age group. Male preponderance was there 64(83%). BMI of 45(60%) cases was normal (<25). Family history was positive among 11(14%) cases. Dyslipidemia was found in 08(10%) cases, 56(73%) cases were hypertensive, 43(56%) cases were type-2 diabetic and 35(45%) were smoker.Conclusion: Hypertension, Diabetes and Smoking are top 03 risk factors for coronary artery disease. All are modifiable. So, primordial prevention should be taken to reduce prevalence of coronary artery disease.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 26-28

      Abstract: Background : Anthropometry is the study of human morphology. Physical variation between the people of different ethnic groups can be recorded by anthropometry. This study was done to establish the anthropometric difference by measuring the nasal parameters among Bengali and Chakma School Going Children. The data of nasal parameters provide important information in plastic surgery, aesthetics and, nationality study and medical jurisprudence.Methods : It was an observational and cross sectional study, convenient sampling was done to select the 50 Bengali and 50 Chakma School Going Children, age ranging from 5-16 yrs old. Data were collected by using standard anthropometric methods with a sliding caliper. Values were expressed as mean ± Standard Deviation (SD).Student T test was used to compare the results.Results : In both sex, among the two ethnic groups, the mean total length and protrusion of nose in the Bengali group was significantly (<0.001) higher than the Chakma ethnicity (48.46±6.75 vs 41.34±4.17, 16.77±2.85 vs 14.48 ±2.22). The mean anatomic width of the nose was higher in Chakma ethnic group. The mean nasal index in the Bengali ethnic group was 67.60 and in the Chakma was 83.38 which shows that the mean nasal index of most Bengali (68%) falls within the Leptorrhine (Narrow nose) type and the most Chakma ethnicity (54%) in the mesorrhine (Broad nose) type.Conclusion : This result represent that the nasal parameters and index play an important role in the ethnicity difference.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 33-36

      Abstract: Background: Fistula formation is the most common complication with various rates among different techniques of hypospadias repair. The urethral advancement as an one stage technique for repair of hypospadias is considered a good technique. As no new urethral tube is constructed there is no risk of fistula. We assess the outcomes of the Limited Urethral Mobilization (LUM) technique in distal hypospadias repair.Methods: Our study included 20 patients aged upto 12 years who were treated with Limited urethral mobilization technique for distal hypospadias in Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital from December 2014 to December 2015. The urethra proximal to the meatus was mobilized for a distance sufficient to allow it to reach the glans tip without tension. Then the urethra was placed in the glanular bed and glanular reconstruction was performed.Results: Three-fold urethral mobilization was sufficient for construction of tension-free urethra-glanular anastomosis. Cosmetically normal looking circumcised penis with ventrally slit meatus achieved in all but one subcoronal case where the most distal of the glans approximation sutures disrupted leading to a minor detachment in the glans. The minor complications includes preputial edema in one patient, two patients had wound infection, one had meatal stenosis which was treated with gentle dilatations. Postoperative urethro cutaneous fistula, retraction of the urethral meatus or recurrent chordee were not observed.Conclusion: Distal hypospadias repair with the LUM technique can be effective with satisfactory cosmetic and functional results. There is no chance for development of urethro cutaneous fistula, a major postoperative complication of other surgical techniques of creating a neourethra. Postoperative management is simple and a brief hospital stay is sufficient.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 37-41

  • Variations in the Left Coronary Artery

    • Authors: Sultana Ruma Alam
      Pages: 42 - 47
      Abstract: Background : There is a large spectrum of variations in the disposition of coronary arteries. Many of these variations are 'normal' and not considered as 'anomalous'1. These variations mainly occur in the Left Coronary Artery (LCA)2. While some of these are benign and have no clinical consequences, other variants can cause important clinical manifestations including sudden death of the individual3. Lack of knowledge of such variations can pose difficulties in percuteneous coronary arteriography, coronary artery bypass surgery or prosthetic valve replacement. A cadaveric study in unsuspected population can help to understand the variations that will be useful to determine the prevalence of certain variations. Thus the objective of this study was to analyze the characteristics of LCA that may be used in the diagnosis and treatment of its pathologies.Methods: The study was carried out in the Department of Anatomy, Chittagong Medical College (CMC) Chittagong over a period between Jan 2012 to Dec 2013 with ethical clearance. A detailed dissection of LCA and its branches in 50 cadaveric human hearts, fixed in 10% formalin was carried out to study normal and variant anatomy of LCA. The length of the main stem of LCA was measured by slide calipers.Results: The LCA was found to arise from the Left Posterior Aortic Sinus (LPAS) of the ascending aorta in 100% cases. The level of the ostia (Opening of coronary artery) was above the free margin of the aortic cusps in 98% cases. In all samples ostia were present below sinutubular ridge (A slight circumferential thickening separating bulbar aortic sinus and proximal ascending aorta). The length of the main stem of LCA (From origin to the point of termination into main branches) was found to range from 0.5-2 cm. The LCA showed bifurcation in 74%, trifurcation in 26% of cases. Left Anterior Descending artery (LAD) was found to terminate at the apex of the heart in 68% and at the posterior interventricular groove in 32% cases. The Left Circumflex artery (LCx) was terminated at the crux of the heart in 52%, near the crux in 44% and by crossing the crux in 4% cases. The Left Marginal Artery (LMA) which was present only in 34% cases, found to terminate nearer to the apex of the heart. 0% Left dominance of heart was observed.Conclusion: Simple attention to potential variations in the origin, number, level of ostia, length of the main stem, branching pattern, termination and distribution of LCA can greatly enhance clinical outcomes.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 42-47

      Abstract: Background: Now a day’s bacterial vaginosis is an extremely common health problem for women in the world which causes many complications both in the pregnancy and non-pregnancy states. G. vaginalis is most important cause of bacterial vaginosis.Methods: A prospective observational study was conducted to detect G. vaginalis in bacterial vaginosis and their sensitivity patterns on patients attending at the outpatient Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Chittagong Medical College Hospital, Chittagong. A total of 170 sexually active female in the age group of 15-45 years, with abnormal vaginal discharge were selected for the study. A detailed history and a thorough clinical examination of all the cases were done.Results:In this study 38(22.35%) Gardnerella vaginalis were isolated by culture and bacterial vaginosis was detected by different methods 47(27.65%). Antimicrobial resistance is one of the major public health threats. So antimicrobial sensitivity pattern of the organisms should be done at regular intervals.Conclusion: In this study Gardnerella vaginalis showed high (52.63%) resistant to most commonly used metronidazole and 100% sensitive to clindamycin.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 48-53

  • Multicentric Castleman's Disease in a 21 Years Old Female : A Rare
           But Important Condition

    • Authors: Shahed Ahmad Chowdhury, Samira Taufiq Reshma, Shanjana Islam
      Pages: 57 - 59
      Abstract: Castleman’s disease, also known as angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, is a rare disease with two known expansion types, unicentric and multicentric, which plays a major role in determining therapy. The rare multicentric type is a lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown etiology and is characterized by various clinical manifestations and multiple organ involvement. This disease runs a more aggressive course and a poor prognosis. Optimal therapies have not been well established till now. We here report a case of rare Multicentric Castleman's Disease (MCD) in a 21yrs old female. She presented with slowly enlarging lymph nodes in cervical and inguinal regions which lead to a histological diagnosis of this rare condition. Its clinical features, types, relevant investigations and current treatment modalities are discussed. Though rare, early suspicion of this condition may relieve the suffering, avoid unnecessary investigations, give opportunity to choose treatment options and can save lives.Chatt Maa Shi Hosp Med Coll J; Vol.16 (1); Jan 2017; Page 57-59
