      Abstract: {May-Thurner Syndrome also known as Iliac Vein Compression Syndorme or Cocketts Syndrome. In this Syndrome the left common iliac vein is compressed by the right common iliac artery and t causes development of deep vein thrombosis. Anticoagulant therapy is one of the most choosen protocol for this Syndrome but is has alone is highly risky for the development of pulmonary embolism and early recurrence. We report a case of May-Thurner Syndrome with the treatment of Catheter-guided thrombolysis and angioplasty with stent implantation, we think this is a safe and effective method for May-Thurner syndrome.}

      Abstract: {Autoimmune progesterone dermatitis is a rare cyclic premenstrual allergic reaction to progesterone produced during the luteal phase of a womans menstrual cycle. Patients present with a variety of conditions including erythema multiforme, eczema, urticaria, angioedema, and progesterone-induced anaphylaxis. A thirty-seven-year-old female anesthesiologist reported erythema multiforme and urticarial rash prior to her menses for last five cycles. She was treated effectively with oral antihistaminic and life style modifications. }

      Abstract: {Background: The Superior Vena Cava Syndrome (SVCS) is defined as the set of signs and symptoms derived from superior vena cava obstruction, both intrinsic obstruction and extrinsic compression, which causes an increase in venous pressure in the upper body region.Methods: We present the case of a male 64 years old patient with hypotiroidism, diabetes mellitus and end stage chronic kidney disease in hemodialysis treatment who presented with cervical, facial and upper right extremity edema. The tomographic contrasted study demonstrated superior vena cava thrombosis.Results: The patient underwent catheterization for stent placement and catheter removal. Clinical Superior Vena Cava Syndrome manifestations remitted. Conclusions: Although thrombosis is a frequent manifestation in patients with blood coagulation alterations and patients with end stage chronic kidney disease, catheter-related thrombosis is a rare cause of thrombosis and Superior Vena Cava Syndrome whose must common cause is neoplastic.}

      Abstract: {Background: Orthopaedic trauma surgeons are increasingly exposed to ionizing radiation owing to a rise in the number of fluoroscopically-guided procedures. This study measured radiation exposure to the trauma surgeon and the operation room personnel as part of the study after applying our strategy in minimizing exposure risk and compared the results to the exposure in the surgical field.Materials and Methods: From July 2012 to December 2013, we prospectively measured radiation exposure using five Thermo-luminescent Dosimeters (TLDs) placed in the surgical field, on the first assistant, on the trauma surgeon below and upon the lead apron at the chest level, and at a constant distance-maintained point behind the image intensifier, being 146 cm from the X-ray tube. To keep radiation exposure to as low as possible, a simple strategy was followed, which consisted of a particular room set-up and instructions on how to use the image intensifier. Concerning the room arrangement, the fluoroscopic monitor was placed at least 1.5 m away from the operating table. As such, the surgeon and the assistants had to move toward the monitor and turn against the image intensifier to view and verify the fluoroscopic images. Results: The total radiation time in 185 procedures was 141 min, 56 sec. TLD exposure in the surgical field was 5.58 mSv (representing 100% exposure). TLD for the first assistant was 0.09 mSv (exposure ratio of 1.61%). The distance-maintained TLD exposure was 0.06 mSv (exposure ratio of 1.08%). TLD exposure over and under the lead apron of the trauma surgeon was 1.25 mSv and 0.06 mSv, respectively, corresponding to an exposure ratio of 22.4% and 1.08%, respectively.Conclusion: By following simple guidelines and the surgeons awareness in reducing use-time, the orthopaedic trauma team could significantly reduce radiation exposure. From the analysis of distance-maintained TLD (146 cm), the radiation exposure could be kept to as low as possible by both maintaining a 1.5 m distance from the source and wearing a lead apron.}

      Abstract: {Background: Obstetric fistula is a public health problem in the developing world. Surgical repair is the mainstay of treatment. Blood transfusion is not a common practice in fistula surgery. The study aims to determine the rate as well as the predisposing factors for blood transfusion among women who had fistula repair.Methodology: This was a hospital-based retrospective study carried out at the National Obstetric Fistula Centre, Abakaliki, Nigeria. Relevant information was obtained from the records of women who had fistula surgery from December 2008 to June 2014. The information was transferred into a proforma and presented in tables. Data was analysed using SPSS Version 20. The means were compared using the students t-tests. A P-value of less than 0.05 was considered significant.Results: Out of 1728 women who had surgery for obstetric fistula, 26 were transfused peri-operatively giving a rate of 1.5%. Out of these, 25 (96.2%) presented with residual fistulae for repeat surgery. All the 26 (100%) women had complicated fistulae. The commonest types of fistulae among the women that were transfused were ureteric (19.5%), intracervical (19.5%) and juxtacervical (19.5%) fistulae. The mean estimated blood loss for women who had transabdominal repair was 539 ml while that for those who transvaginal repair was 494 ml. The difference was not statistically significant (t-value=0.7803, two-tailed p-value=0.4577). Conclusion: Peri-operative blood transfusion among women with obstetric fistula is an uncommon practice. It is more likely among women with residual fistulae undergoing repeat surgery, complicated fistulae and women with were ureteric, intracervical and juxtacervical fistulae.}
