  • Infants of mothers with preeclampsia risk factors

    • Authors: Lejla Kamerić, Almir Halilović, Gordana Bogdanović, Dženita Ljuca, Zlatan Fatušić
      Abstract: The aim of this research is to present that pregnant women with preeclampsia risk factor often give birth to infants with lower birth weight as well as infants who have lower Apgar score values. Material and methods: This prospective study included 240 pregnant women of different priority, aged 20 to 40, with one or more preeclampsia risk factors which are related to personal or family anamnesis and their infants. Results: Pregnant women with preeclampsia risk factors gave birth to infants with 19% chance of being hypotrophic, chance that infants might be hypotrophic is 3,16 (95%CI: 1,39-7,41) is bigger in this group of pregnant women. Giving birth to babies with lower birth weight is often with pregnant women who have more preeclampsia syndromes. Linear decline of Apgar score values has been evident with increased number of infants with lower birth weight, meaning more children with lower birth weight have lower Apgar score values at the 1st. minute of birth. Lower Apgar score values at birth is seen with infants from mothers who had more preeclampsia syndromes. Conclusion: Frequency of giving birth to infants with lower birth weight as well as giving birth to infants with lower Apgar score values is often with mothers who have preeclampsia risk factors.

  • Brain natriuretic peptide and troponin I in acute myocardial infarction

    • Authors: Katarina Kovačević, Zumreta Kušljugić, Nabil Naser, Fahir Baraković, Larisa Dizdarevic Hudic, Suada Mulic Bacic, Emir Prljača
      Abstract: Myocardial infarction, in the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects, is of one of the great social and medical problems. Clinical diagnosis requires the presence of clinical symptoms in combination with indirect indicators of cardiac necrosis, such as biochemical markers- enzymes, electrocardiographic (ECG) and echocardiography findings. Assessment of heart failure by determining markers of myocardial damage is very significant challenge in the process of clinical assessment of patients with myocardial infarction, for further diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Heart failure occurs in all patients with myocardial infarction, to a lesser or greater extent. Bearing in mind that, a myocardial infarction involving the anterior wall of the heart has worse prognosis, the subject of interest of this study is whether the markers of myocardial damage will be higher in patients with this localization of myocardial infarction. It was interested too, in whether it is possible to find elevated markers of myocardial damage- failure indicators, brain natriuretic peptide, in corelation with clinical signs of cardiac insuficiency.

  • Thyroglobulin as a possible predictor of doses radioiodine therapy in
           hyperthyroidism

    • Authors: Salih Azabagić
      Abstract: Introduction According to guidelines for the management of hyperthyroidism, patients with hyperthyroidism should be treated with radioactive iodine, antithyroid drugs, or thyroidectomy. Oral administration of radioiodine is a safe and cost effective treatment option for patients with toxic multinodular goiter (TMG)/toxic adenoma (TA) or Grave’s disease (GD). The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of thyroglobulin values as a possible predictor of a dose of radioiodine therapy (RAI) in hyperthyroidism in patients GD, TA and TMG. Results The study included 105 patients (14.4 % males and 85.6% females). The average duration of the disease was 9 years. Graves’s disease is registered among 50.68%, toxic multinodular goiter among 30.83% and toxic adenoma among 18.49% of patients. Patients were divided into four groups, and they received four doses of radioiodine therapy: 10mCi, 15mCi, 20mCi and 25mCi. The values of thyroglubulin were measured before RAI, and in period of one, three and six months after the therapy. Conclusion It can be concluded that the higher average value of thyroglobulin before therapy suggests the need for administering a higher doses of RAI, so determination of thyroglobulin levels in serum, may serve as a good predictor to assist in monitoring the administered dose of RAI in patients with hyperthyroidism.

  • Tactile and hearing sensitivity of children with and without autism using
           the sensory profile and DSM-5

    • Authors: Bahira Demirović, Amila Mujezinović, Munevera Bećarević, Nermin Demirović, Nejra Bećarević, Alma Dizdarević, Vesna Bratovčić
      Abstract: Background: Children with autism in their characteristics show a series of unusual reactions to stimuli in all areas of the sensory system. Aim: The aim of this paper was to compare the tactile and auditory processes, i.e. to determine the deficits of these processes by children with autism spectrum disorder (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th ed.) in relation to children with intellectual disabilities and children of the typical population. Methods: The sample consisted of a total of 105 children. During the survey, the method of proportional stratified sample was used and the data collection was carried out in 2017 on the entire territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Short Sensory Profile was applied (Dunn, 1999) and through 13 items, Tactile Perception and Hearing Perception were examined. Results: It was found that 71.4% of children with autism had significant difficulties in the area of tactile perception and 65.7% in the area of hearing perception. Tactile and hearing sensitivity is also common by children with intellectual disabilities, which undermines the inclusion of the difficulty of sensory processing as a key diagnostic criterion for autism.

  • Application of dendrimers and quantum dots in cancer diagnosis and therapy

    • Authors: Emir Horozić
      Abstract: The use of nanotechnology in the diagnosis of diseases, treatment and monitoring of cancer patients has become a subject of study for the last 20 years. This paper presents brief overview of general characteristics, synthesis and application of dendrimers and quantum points in oncology. Dendrimers and quantum dots are nanostructures whose application in oncology is still being examined. QDs are used in magnetic resonance, wherein very well detect the location of tumor. Dendrimers are intensively tested, especially in cancer therapy. Dendrimers are intensively tested, especially in cancer therapy, because, due to their extremely small dimensions, they have the ability to pass through the mucous barriers and vascular pores, enabling safe delivery of the drug to the tumor cells.

  • The predictive value of the clinical sign of excessive hip abduction for
           developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH)

    • Authors: Svemir Čustović, Kenan Čustović
      Abstract: Aim To assess the relationship between the clinical sign of excessive hip abduction (abduction of the hip 90 degrees or more) and developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). Methods The research was conducted on 450 newborns in the Neonatal Unit at the Clinic of Gynecology and Obstetrics and the Clinic of Orthopedics and Traumatology of the University Clinical Centre, Tuzla, between 30th August 2011 and 30th April 2012. Clinical (degree of hip abduction) and ultrasound examination of all newborns hip were performed using the Graf method on their first day of life. Results Clinical sign of excessive hip abduction showed significant predictive value for DDH. There were 37 (8.2%) newborns with the clinical sign of excessive hip abduction, of which 13 of them had DDH while 24 of them did not have this clinical sign. There were 89 newborns, in the overall sample, with one of the forms of DDH, 13 (12.7%) of them had this clinical sign, while from 324 newborns witouth DDH, 24 (6.9%) had this clinical sign. Excessive hip abduction had a positive predictive value (PPV) of 35.1% and a negative predictive value (NPV) of 78.5% for DDH. Conclusion Excessive hip abduction is an useful and important clinical sign of DDH. Doctors who perform the first examination of the child after birth, would have to turn their attention to this clinical sign. The newborns with this clinical sign would have to go to an ultrasound examination of the hips for further diagnosis.

  • The effect of atmospheric pressure on frequency and patient's
           subjective perception of epileptic seizure severity

    • Authors: Larisa Kovačević, Mirjana Vidović, Leila Avdić, Dževdet Smajlović
      Abstract: Epilepsy is a paroxysmal cerebral dysrhythmia defined by three important characteristics: the suddenness of the process, brain origin and the disorder of the rhythm of the electrical brain activity (1). Seizures (crises, ictus events, attacks) are common to all epilepsies. They include a variety of clinical manifestations or sudden episodes of disturbance of motor, sensibility, behaviour, perception, awareness or other psychic functions, autonomic and other regulations. The classification of seizures and epilepsy syndrome takes the central place in modern epileptology, although the classification process itself is as old as the study of epilepsy. The international classification, based mainly on the clinical form of seizure and the electroencephalographic findings, was adopted in 1981 and has been further modified. In 1989, ILAE (International League Against Epilepsy) adopted the International classification of epilepsies, epilepsy syndromes and disorders, which highlights the symptoms and signs that show the localization of initial cerebral dysfunction and its spread (2). In 2017, the ILAE released a new classification of seizure types, based upon the existing classification formulated in 1981. and its extension from 2010. The differences include the following: "partial seizures" become "focal"; consciousness is used as a classifier of focal seizures; terms such as „dyscognitive”, „simple partial”, „complex partial”, „psychic” and „secondary generalized” are eliminated; new focal seizures include automatisms, behavioural changes, hyperkinetic, autonomic, cognitive and emotional; atonic, clonic, epileptic spasms, myoclonic, and tonic seizures can be either focal or generalized phenomena; „focal seizure evolving to a bilateral tonic-clonic seizure” replace the term „secondary generalized seizure”; new generalized types of attack are absence with eyelid myoclonia, myoclonic absence, myoclonic-atonic and myoclonic-tonic-clonic and seizures of unknown onset (3).     Biometeorology is an interdisciplinary science that studies the interaction system between living organisms and the environment. The biometerological warning, bioforecast, contain a description of the meteorological situation and announces the arrival of those weather conditions which may adversely affect human health in the next days. The goal of bioprognosis is the organization of preventive measures for the protection of the vulnerable groups health (4). Variations in biometeorological factors have an influence on the overall balance of the human body, as well as to changes in the condition of patients, primarily those with chronic diseases. Le Blanc and Mills (1932) stated that one of the oldest and best known disease whose association with climatic factors is mentioned, is epilepsy (5). Fluctuation in some climatic factors, e.g. air pressure, might influence one or more of the above mentioned factors, and thus lead to seizure.   The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of atmospheric pressure on the specific seizure types frequency as well as on patient's subjective perception of the seizure "severity".
