  • Evaluation of Statherin and ß-Defensin-3 in saliva of children with
           dental caries: Case control study

    • Authors: Raghdah Lutfi Nussrat; Zainab A. Aldhaher
      Abstract: Background: Dental caries in children is termed as early childhood caries. Early childhood caries (ECC) is an important dental health problem, particularly in people who are poor in society. Additionally, Saliva is very crucial for the development of caries and for preventing it. Antimicrobial peptides are a large group of peptides which protect the mucous membranes of the mouth cavity and various other places and have various roles affect parts of natural response and microbial invasion. Statherin is acidic peptides may also stop microbial organisms such as fungi and bacteria from growing and colonizing that lead to prevent tooth decay specially when Statherin values appeared significant while ß-Defensin-3, a naturally occurring antibacterial. It is consist of from three types (1, 2, and 3), which may reflect the immunological reaction to dental decay.Materials and Method: Eighty healthy looking Kindergartens children with an age from 4-5 years old, in Baghdad city was registered in this research, 40 Kindergartens children with severe type of ECC detected according to Wyne (1999), classify be chosen as study group and 40 Kindergartens children caries free as control group matching age. All studied groups were subjected to oral examination and decayed missing filling (dmfs) was recorded also un-stimulated saliva was collected for the evaluation of salivary Statherin and ß-Defensin-3 by ELISA assay technique.Results: Statistical analysis revealed that ß-Defensin-3levels was increase significantly in study group (ECC) compared to caries free group while salivary Statherin was significantly increase in the caries free group than study group (ECC) and appositive significant correlation was detected between dmfs and ß-Defensin-3.

  • Effect of adding chrome-cobalt, titanium, and tungsten alloys to cold-cure
           acrylic resin oral stent for cancer patients with head and neck
           radiotherapy

    • Authors: Samah M. Hassan Al-Safi; Lateef E. Alwan Al-Jorani Abdel Kareem J. Khadim Al-Azzawi
      Abstract: Purpose: The main objective of this study is to develop a substance that can enhance the absorption of radiation therapy for head and neck cancer and protect the surrounding tissues of the tumor during radiotherapy.Materials and Methods: The dimensions of the specimen are 40 mm x 55 mm in length and width, with a thickness of 6 mm based on Iraqi population studies. The sample was composed of four groups, A, B, C, and D. Each group was exposed to two different types of energy, 4 MEV, and 9 MEV, by the VARIANI X2300 radiation machine.Results: The amount of radiation penetration was measured and statistically analyzed using Levene’s and two-way ANOVA tests to determine the differences and identify the best materials. The data from this study show a highly significant difference (p-value < 0.001) in radiation penetration between all groups.Conclusion: The stent made with a combination of cold-cure acrylic and tungsten alloy has the lowest radiation penetration at 4 MEV and 9 MEV energy levels, making it the best material stent for protecting healthy tissues against radiation. On the other hand, stents made solely with cold-cure acrylic offer poor radiation protection.

  • A review of facial vascular anomalies with emphasis on venous
           malformations

    • Authors: Atheer Talib Jiboon; Nazhat Mahmood AbdlKareem Al-Zubaidi, Noor Mohammed Al-Noori Teba Fadhil Kadim
      Abstract: Vascular anomalies are localized congenital morphogenetic defects in the blood vessels. They represent a broad spectrum of disorders, ranging from a simple “birthmark” to life-threatening entities. Most (60%) occur in the head and neck region, and each anomaly has a different etiology and clinical behavior; therefore, an accurate diagnosis is crucial for appropriate evaluation and management.This study aims to briefly elaborate on the vascular anomalies, their etiology, and clinical features and assess the role of sclerosing agents in treating venous malformations. The International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) classifies vascular anomalies into vascular tumors and malformations, with subdivisions of each. This classification is accepted worldwide and has become the official system for classifying vascular anomalies.Hemangiomas are the most common type of vascular tumors, while venous malformations are the most common type of vascular malformations. Venous malformations can be treated conservatively without surgical disfigurement. Sclerotherapy is the first-line treatment for venous malformations, as it is an easy-to-perform procedure with minimal equipment needed.

  • Evaluation of the microshear bond strength of resin cement to zirconia
           treated by different nanomaterials using the dip coating technique

    • Authors: Zainab Shakir Amory; Mohammed Rashid, Mofeed A. Jaleel Ali J. Addie
      Abstract: Aim: Using a dip-coating technique, this study evaluated the microshear bond strength of resin cement to zirconia surfaces coated with nanosilica and nanoalumina.Methods: Zirconia blocks (n = 56) were categorized into seven groups based on surface treatment: untreated (control), tribochemical silica coating (positive control), dip coating with pure nanosilica, pure nanoalumina, and nanosilica-nanoalumina mixtures at 75:25, 50:50, and 25:75 volume ratios. The coated surfaces underwent characterization using a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray Diffraction (XRD), and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). Resin cylinders were cemented onto the treated zirconia surfaces, and microshear bond strength testing was performed. Differences in bond strength between groups were analyzed using One-way ANOVA and Tukey’s post-hoc test (p < 0.05).Results: SEM revealed that nanosilica coatings formed island-like agglomerations, nanosilica-nanoalumina produced porous layers, and nanoalumina formed a dense cover layer. XRD detected only the tetragonal phase in coated zirconia, indicating no phase transformation compared to tribochemical silica coating. Microshear bond strength was higher for all coating groups than for controls (p < 0.05). The 75:25 nanosilica-nanoalumina demonstrated greater bond strength than other ratios.Conclusion: Dip-coating proved effective in enhancing resin-zirconia bonding without causing surface damage. Among the various ratios, the 75:25 nanosilica-nanoalumina mixture exhibited optimal bond strength.

  • Reasons for self-medication among elderly patients in TIU and Erbil
           Infirmary House

    • Authors: Sura S. Khalid; Zainab Yalman Othman Ban Zuhair Ahmed
      Abstract: Background: This study investigates the factors contributing to self-medication among elderly patients in TIU (Tishk International University) and Erbil Infirmary House, utilizing a mixed-methods approach that combines qualitative interviews and quantitative surveys.Methods: The sample includes elderly patients aged 60 years and above with diverse backgrounds, employing a mixed-methods approach consisting of qualitative interviews and quantitative surveys. The study identifies several factors contributing to self-medication, such as limited access to healthcare, financial constraints, long waiting times, lack of trust in healthcare professionals, family influence, and positive past experiences with self-medication.The study emphasizes the necessity for targeted interventions to address self-medication in the elderly. This includes improving healthcare access, reducing financial barriers, enhancing healthcare professionals’ communication skills, and educating patients on the risks and benefits of self-medication. Collaboration between providers and the elderly population is crucial for creating a safe environment for appropriate medication use.Results: The study reveals significant differences in self-medication behavior among the elderly based on demographic factors. Males were more likely to engage in self-medication, and the prevalence was higher among single elderly individuals. Primary education was more prevalent than high school or college education. There was no significant difference in self-medication prevalence between those without medical insurance and those with insurance. The presence of drug information significantly influenced self-medication practices.Conclusion: Further research is needed to explore the long-term consequences of self-medication and evaluate the effectiveness of intervention strategies in mitigating associated risks. Addressing self-medication among elderly patients is essential to ensure their health and well-being.

  • The measurement of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α and interleukin-6 levels
           in pregnancies with threatened preterm labor

    • Authors: Shatha Abd-kareem Mahmood Al-mashhadani; Huda Hamid Aljanabi, Iman Flayyih Hassan Ruaa Dheyaa Mahdi
      Abstract: Background: Preterm birth has a significant impact on neonatal health and the healthcare system as it increases neonatal morbidities and mortality rates. Interleukin-6 is one of the pro-inflammatory cytokines that can trigger the production of chemokines and uterine activation proteins, consequently causing uterine contraction and subsequent cervical change. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α plays a pivotal role in the hypoxic adaptive response of tissues. It has been suggested that hypoxia has a vital role in the initiating and/or strengthening of uterine contractions, proposing that hypoxia-inducible factor-1α could be involved in this process.Aim: Investigate whether serum concentrations of interleukin-6 and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α would differ between women with threatened preterm labor who deliver prematurely and those who continue their pregnancy till term.Patients and Methods: The case-control study was extended over 12 months, including women in their 28th to 35th weeks of gestation and with a single viable fetus. The women were divided into three groups: women with threatened preterm labor who delivered prematurely (27 women), women with threatened preterm labor who continued their pregnancy till term (23 women), and women with matching gestational age and uncomplicated pregnancies (the controls = 40 women). The serum levels of interleukin-6 and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α were measured by Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.Results: The mean values of interleukin-6 and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α were significantly different between the study groups (p-value <0.001 by one-way ANOVA), where women with threatened preterm labor who delivered prematurely had higher serum values of interleukin-6 and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (124.5 and 102.4, respectively) than the women with threatened preterm labor who continued their pregnancy till term (71.0 and 55.2, respectively), and than the women in the control group (55.3 and 50.0, respectively). There was a significant negative statistical correlation between the values of interleukin-6 and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α and the timing of delivery (R = -0.786 and -0.644, respectively, p-value < 0.001).Conclusions: Both interleukin-6 and hypoxia-inducible factor-1α serum concentrations can help differentiate pregnant women who are genuinely in preterm labor from those who have preterm contractions but are not at risk of imminent delivery.

  • A comparative immunohistochemical expression of cytokeratin 19 in
           odontogenic keratocyst, dentigerous, and radicular cysts

    • Authors: Maha Thayir Hadi; Layla Sabri Yas
      Abstract: Background: Odontogenic cysts are characterized by their sluggish growth and ability to enlarge, primarily affecting the oral and maxillofacial tissues. Timely diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent potentially serious consequences. The present study aimed to evaluate and compare the immunohistochemical expression of cytokeratin 19 in the epithelium of odontogenic keratocyst, dentigerous, and radicular cysts.Methods: This study analyzed forty-five formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue blocks containing odontogenic cysts. The sample consisted of fifteen odontogenic keratocysts, fifteen dentigerous cysts, and fifteen radicular cysts. Immunohistochemical analysis was performed to assess the expression of the cytokeratin 19 epithelial marker in these samples. Statistical analyses were conducted using Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 26, employing the Chi-square test for comparative analysis of cytokeratin 19 expression among the odontogenic keratocyst, dentigerous cyst, and radicular cyst.Results: This study showed that 80% of basal layer tissue samples in the odontogenic keratocyst group had negative cytokeratin 19 biomarker scores. In contrast, 60% of dentigerous cyst tissue blocks and 53.3% of radicular cyst tissue blocks were +1. This difference was statistically significant (P = 0.034). In comparison, between groups, there was no significant difference (P = 0.103) in CK19 expression in the surface and spinous layers.Conclusion: The level of epithelial differentiation is correlated with cytokeratin 19 expression. The cysts with well-differentiated epithelium (radicular cyst and dentigerous cyst) express cytokeratin 19, whereas those with less well-differentiated epithelium (odontogenic keratocyst) exhibit low positives. Thus, it serves as a diagnostic tool for distinguishing these three lesions.

  • The effect of curcumin oral gel on radiation-induced oral mucositis in
           relation to salivary epidermal growth factor

    • Authors: Sarah Adnan Alsalim; Ameena Ryhan Diajil
      Abstract: Background: Radiation-induced oral mucositis (RIOM) poses a significant challenge in the management of head and neck cancer patients (HNCs). Patients may require adjustments in their cancer treatment, such as dose reductions or treatment delays, which can decrease the effectiveness of the antineoplastic therapy. Numerous clinical investigations have demonstrated that curcumin, an herbal agent, exhibits a wide range of pharmacologic actions, including anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anticarcinogenic effects and the ability to enhance wound healing.Objectives: To evaluate the effect of curcumin oral gel with the magic solution (dexamethasone-based mouthwash) as a standard mouthwash treatment for RIOM in relation to salivary epidermal growth factor (EGF) before and after radiation therapy.Methods: Thirty-one HNCs who received radiotherapy with a head and neck mask were divided into the curcumin oral gel and the magic-solution groups. Saliva samples were collected before radiation, at the 3rd week of radiation, and post-radiation. Salivary EGF was measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. RIOM was assessed using both the WHO and the VAS scales.Results: Significant differences were found between both groups in the WHO scale (P = 0.027) and VAS score (P = 0.047). Patients who used oral curcumin gel presented with less severe RIOM and elevated salivary EGF levels during the radiation sessions.Conclusion: Curcumin oral gel might be an effective agent in preventing and managing RIOM, as evidenced by the observed increase in salivary EGF.

  • Effect of various beverage immersions on the color stability and degree of
           cure of two types of dental resin composite materials: An in vitro study

    • Authors: Mustafa Rashad; Amel Muhson Naji, Sahira Hassan Kareem Hussain Al-Huwaizi
      Abstract: Among the wide range of polymer matrices, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)-based matrices can be considered the most common polymer in dental applications. Significant parameters, such as conversion degree and change of color of two commercial brands, nano-filled composite resin, NovaPro (N), and micro-hybrid composite resin, VladMiVa (V), were investigated after curing and immersing the dental specimens in different drinks for one and seven days at 37°C. Raman spectroscopy was used to evaluate the degree of conversion (DC) by measuring the ratio of the absorption bands related to aromatic and methacrylate C=C stretching modes. These ratios were of the same value. CIE (Color Imaging Experiment) was used to investigate the color change of the filling resins. The N composite has a noticeable color change in coffee after 24 hours and almost the exact change after one week. Yogurt also significantly affects the color stability of the same composite just after one week of immersion. Cola dramatically affects the color of the same composite after one week of immersion. For the (V) composite, the effect of the drinks after immersion for 24 hours and after one week was within the acceptable limit and non-noticeable by the naked human eye, which means it has better color stability than the (N).

  • Tantalum oxide nanoparticles integration to denture bases 3D printer
           resin: Study of tensile strength and thermocycling relationship

    • Authors: Duha Ghany; Lateef Essa Aljorani AbdulKareem Jasim AL-Azzawi
      Abstract: Background: Advancements in dentistry and incorporating 3D printing techniques have numerous benefits over traditional methods. However, the produced resins have shown a lack of good biocompatibility and insufficient mechanical properties. Tantalum oxide, on the other hand, exhibits biocompatibility, excellent physical and mechanical properties, and an antimicrobial effect.Aim of the study: To assess the tensile strength of tantalum oxide nanoparticles when used with 3D-printed denture-based resins before and after thermocycling.Materials and Methods: The materials tested in this study were laser-based stereolithography (an additive manufacturing process, SLA). Eighty samples were prepared from 3D-printed resin. The sample was divided into two groups (before and after thermocycling), and each group was subdivided into four subgroups.Results: There was a statistically significant association between the used concentrations when tested before and after thermocycling, with a high statistical significance (p-value = 0.001). Additionally, there was a high statistical significance for the concentration before thermocycling in relation to after thermocycling with (p-value 0.001).Conclusion: Using tantalum oxide improved the tensile strength of the 3D-printed resins by promoting characteristic osseointegration and enhancing its ability to promote osteoblast formation, proliferation, and integration into the bone.

  • Refractive status of patients attending the eye clinic at Fallujah
           Teaching Hospital in Iraq

    • Authors: Noor Hussain Abady
      Abstract: Background: Refractive error (RE) represents a common cause of treatable visual impairment, and studying its epidemiology has been a research interest worldwide.Objectives: To investigate the refractive status of Iraqi patients visiting the eye clinic at Fallujah Teaching Hospital and report the results compared to local and global records.Methods: A hospital-based cross-sectional study analyzed the saved patients’ records from the Fallujah eye clinic. The prevalence of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism was estimated and analyzed according to gender and age groups in children, adolescents, and adult patients.Results: In children and adolescents under the age of 18 years, the prevalence of emmetropia, myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism was 34.95%, 19.7%, 20.9%, and 24.6%, respectively. In adult subjects, 29.6% were emmetropic, 16.9% were myopic, 20.7% were hyperopic, and 32.8% were astigmatic. A significant association between RE and age was detected (P = 0.001) but not with gender (P = 0.061).Conclusion: This study found a high prevalence of RE among all age groups, with astigmatism being the most prevalent RE, followed by hyperopia and myopia.

  • Evaluation of the Influence of Consanguinity and the Role of IFN-γ in
           Autistic Children, as well as Disease Severity and Oral Health Status

    • Authors: Jehan Yawez Al-Demirchi; Batool Hassan AlGhurabi, Zaid Abdulhussein Hussein Bassim Al-Anssari
      Abstract: Background: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition affecting children, characterized by difficulties in social interaction, communication, and repetitive behavior. Consanguineous marriages increase the likelihood of discovering recessive conditions and promoting gene expression, leading to autosomal recessive disorders. Immunity also plays a vital role in autism development, with changes in pro-inflammatory cytokine concentrations or synthesis indicative of aberrant cellular immunity. This research aims to determine the effects of consanguinity on autism, measure interferon-gamma salivary levels, and examine the relationship between autistic subjects’ dental health condition and caries occurrence.Materials and Methods: Forty autistic children were divided into mild, moderate, and severe categories according to their symptoms and social impairments. The oral investigation involved calculating decayed, missing, and filled teeth and simplified oral hygiene indices. Salivary samples were collected via the drooling technique, and salivary interferon-gamma levels were measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.Results: Consanguineous marriage was significant in the patient group, and salivary interferon-gamma levels were considerably elevated. A higher occurrence of dental caries was detected in autistic individuals. As disease severity increases, dental caries and oral health conditions also worsen.Conclusion: Consanguinity increases the incidence of autism due to the likelihood of recessively inherited congenital abnormalities. Autism has higher levels of interferon-gamma, which play a role in the condition’s pathophysiology. Additionally, inadequate oral health was noticed in autistic children.

  • Violence against junior medical doctors in Iraq: A trial for de-escalation

    • Authors: Riyadh K Lafta; Ali M Al Mousawi
      Abstract: Background: Workplace violence represents a severe problem facing health systems in almost all countries globally. Communication failure is thought to be the major issue that initiates violence.Objective: This study aimed to test the effectiveness of a short training course for junior doctors on how to deal with patients’ aggressive attitudes in a trial to de-escalate violence against them.Materials and Methods: This interventional randomized trial was conducted in a sample of hospitals in Baghdad and Karbala governorates, Iraq, from August 2021 through July 2022. A pre-training survey was conducted to collect data from a sample of junior doctors (1079) to explore their exposure to violent attacks. The one-arm randomized trial measured the difference in exposure of 190 doctors to violent attacks during a comparable period, six months before and six months after the training.Results: Three-quarters (74.8%) of the sample reported exposure to lifetime violence. The prevalence of exposure to violence in the six months before the intervention was 66.8%, while six months after the training, it dropped to 53.2%, with a statistically significant difference.Conclusion: A two-day training proved effective in reducing violent incidents. This result indicates the necessity of starting a nationwide, wide-scale, regular, periodic training program for junior doctors to de-escalate violence. The findings of this study represent a message to policymakers to make more efforts to lessen violence against healthcare workers.

  • The outcome of horizontal strabismus surgery in Anbar governorate in Iraq:
           an interventional study

    • Authors: Rafea Allawi Fayyadh; Aktham Badia Abdulelah Wissam AbdulSamad Yosif
      Abstract: Background: Strabismus is the loss of ocular alignment, which can lead to amblyopia, defective binocularity, and defective depth perception.Objectives: To assess the results of strabismus surgery among patients older and younger than six years and study the influencing and predictive factors.Methods: Surgical treatment for 202 patients clinically diagnosed with horizontal strabismus aged 4-45 years was carried out in Fallujah Teaching Hospital between September 2021 and October 2022. Surgical outcome was assessed at the end of 6 months post-operatively. Chi-square and Mann-Whitney Univariate tests were performed to evaluate the statistical relationship between pre-operative factors and surgical outcomes.Results: Overall, the success rate of horizontal strabismus surgery was 68.3% (138 patients), and the rate of success among the esotropia group (55.1%) was better than the exotropia group (44.9%). Among age groups, a higher recorded success rate was for ages above 6 (71.7%). The success rate was higher in males than females (54.3% and 45.7%, respectively). Chi-square and univariate analysis showed a significant association between gender (p < 0.068), refractive error (p < 0.033), and surgical outcome.Conclusion: Surgical correction of strabismus improved overall ocular deviation and binocular function. Esotropia patients benefited the most compared to exotropia patients.

  • Near miss cases during cesarean hysterectomy due to morbid adherence of
           placenta at Al-Yarmouk Teaching Hospital

    • Authors: Dina Nawfal Abed; Eftekhar Shamkhee Abbood
      Abstract: Background: Placental adhesion disorder, or placenta accreta, is caused by a decidua basalis shortage that leads to the chorionic villi penetrating the myometrium. Different types of placental adhesion disorders are classified according to the degree of uterine adhesion. Cesarean Hysterectomy is indicated in cases of morbid adherence of the placenta in various age groups during childbearing age.Objectives: Evaluation of the influence of placental adhesion on hysterectomy at the time of cesarean in near-missed pregnant women and assessment of factors that increase its incidence among Iraqi women.Methods: This research encompassed a case-control study involving 64 pregnant women, with the participants selected from Al-Yarmouk Teaching Hospital. The pregnant patients were divided into two groups. The first group consisted of thirty-two pregnant women with emergency cesarean hysterectomy due to placental adhesion. The second group was made up of thirty-two pregnant women with elective cesarean hysterectomy due to placental adhesion.Results: In the present study, it has been found that there are no significant differences in the age of patients who undergo elective cesarean hysterectomy as compared to emergency cesarean hysterectomy (p > 0.05). Also, according to the gestational age, most elective surgery patients are full-term pregnancies; meanwhile, the emergency cases are mostly preterm. Elective patient parity was higher than emergency cases at three parity 13 vs 9. The patients with emergency cesarean hysterectomy showed that the presence of two or more scars in the uterus was accreta in about 72% of patients. Meanwhile, the elective patients with placental adherence showed a higher frequency of two or more scars, the same as observed in emergency cases. Still, there were more emergency cases than elective cases.Conclusion: There are elevations in the incidences of placental adhesion, reflecting the increase in cesarean hysterectomy surgeries and near-miss cases.

  • Prevalence of nephrocalcinosis among a sample of preterm babies at
           Fallujah city in the west of Iraq

    • Authors: Bashar Talib Huweidy; Omar Mahmood Shakir Ameel F. Al Shawi
      Abstract: Background: Nephrocalcinosis (NC) is a serious condition among neonates that needs proper management. The study aimed to detect the prevalence of nephrocalcinosis among preterm babies in Fallujah city, west of Iraq, and measure its association with a variety of risk factors.Methods: Thirty preterm cases were recruited from September to December of 2019. A pediatric radiologist performed an ultrasound on babies in the sample to detect nephrocalcinosis.Results: There were 30 neonate babies; 7 (23%) cases had nephrocalcinosis. The mean gestation weight was 1.6±0.4 Kg. About 6% of the neonates did not need an oxygen supply, 10% required steroids, 33% needed theophylline, 20% received vancomycin, 3% received diuretics, and 70% received gentamycin. There was a statistically non-significant association between gender and using oxygen, theophylline, steroids, vancomycin, and diuretics with the occurrence of nephrocalcinosis.Conclusion: Nephrocalcinosis among premature babies is a common disease and should be considered for screening. Treatment is mandatory to prevent its dangerous consequences.

           density in Iraqi sample pre-dental implant insertion

    • Authors: Farah A. Hadi; Muthana Kamal Ali Zainab H. Alghurabi
      Abstract: Background and Aims: One of the critical factors for dental implant success is accurate clinical and radiological assessment. Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) allow surgeons to determine the quality and quantity before surgery, aiding in treatment planning. This study highlights the importance of such an assessment.Materials and Methods: A total of 40 patients were referred to CBCT scanning for pre-dental implant assessment in the Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology department at Al-Shaheed Gazi Al Hariri Hospital from 2021 to 2022. The patients were between 18 and 50 years old. All data were analyzed with on-demand 3D software (Kavo OP 3D: Cone Beam 3D imaging Germany).Results: Regarding the ridge shape:
      In the upper anterior and posterior regions, the rectangular shape had the highest percentages of (62.5%) and (75%) respectively.
      In the lower anterior and posterior regions, the pyramidal shape had the highest percentages of (55%) and (60%), respectively, and the hourglass shape was the lowest in all areas.Regarding bone density:The highest bone density percentage in the anterior upper region was D3 (67%), while in the upper posterior region, D4 had the highest percentage (77.5%). In the lower anterior region, D2 had a more prominent percentage (52.5%), while in the lower posterior, D3 was predominant (82.6%).Conclusion: From this study, it can be suggested that CBCT is the best modality for pre-implant radiographic assessment, and ridge shape and bone density are easily assessed using this method.

  • The effect of pulsed Er,Cr:YSGG laser scanning on the adhesion strength of
           lithium disilicate to tooth dentin

    • Authors: Noor Azad Mohammed; Zainab F. Mahdi Balsam Saadi Abdulhameed
      Abstract: This study examined how Er,Cr:YSGG laser surface conditioning affected the adhesion of lithium disilicate ceramic to the dentin tooth structure. Forty samples were divided into four groups (n=10). The first group was untreated, whereas the second was etched with hydrofluoric acid. The third group was treated for 2 minutes with a 7 W, 25 Hz Er,Cr:YSGG laser. The fourth group received the same Er,Cr:YSGG laser treatment at 5 W. The untreated group had the lowest shear bond scores. Laser-irradiated Group 3 at 7 W had a higher maximum shear bond strength than the hydrofluoric acid-etched group. The laser-irradiated groups also had a more uniform, non-invasive surface roughness pattern. The samples were tested by atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and a universal shear bond testing machine. Surface treatment with the Er,Cr:YSSG laser at 7 W improves lithium disilicate ceramic adhesion to dentin. The laser outperforms hydrofluoric acid as the gold standard.

  • Musculoskeletal hydatid disease: A case report of scapula and proximal
           humerus destruction due to hydatidosis

    • Authors: Ali Abdulrazzaq Mohammed; Noor Yousif Abed
      Abstract: Bone infection with Echinococcus granulosus represents 1–2.5% of hydatid diseases. The vertebrae are a common site of musculoskeletal hydatidosis; other bony hydatid diseases are rare. The primary diagnosis of bone hydatidosis is complex and requires a high index of suspicion with clinical features and immunological and radiologic investigation. Bone F.N.A. is avoided as there is a risk of spreading and anaphylaxis. This paper discusses the bony hydatidosis of the scapula and proximal humerus, extending outside the bone and destroying it.

  • Association between zinc-alpha 2-glycoprotein and lipid profile among
           pregnant women with gestational diabetes

    • Authors: Bara Nahdh Saleem; Manal Khalid Abdulridha Hind Abdalkhaliq Showman
      Abstract: Background: Gestational diabetes is a condition that occurs during the latter stages of pregnancy and is marked by notable resistance to insulin due to the release of hormones by the placenta. Zinc alpha 2-glycoprotein (ZAG) is an intriguing protein due to its ability to perform numerous essential functions in the human body. Prior research has linked ZAG to lipid metabolism.Objectives: This study was designed to evaluate the ZAG level in GDM pregnant women undergoing different therapeutic modalities. Furthermore, the study examines the correlation between ZAG and lipid parameters.Method: The study included a sample of 76 pregnant women aged 18 to 40 years. A total of 22 pregnant women without any health issues (Group 1), 30 pregnant women recently diagnosed with GDM (Group 2), and 24 pregnant women with GDM who were receiving various treatments (Group 3) were included in the study. All participants were in their second or third trimester of pregnancy, and their demographic information and lipid measurements were assessed.Results: There was no statistically significant difference in ZAG levels among study groups (P ≥ 0.05); hence, GDM pregnant women in Group 2 showed the highest level. In GDM pregnant women who received treatment, there was a significant difference in ZAG levels among subgroups (p<0.01). The metformin group had the lowest level of ZAG. The high-density lipoprotein and triglyceride levels were significantly higher in GDM-pregnant women in Groups 2 and 3 (p<0.05). Only in Group 3, ZAG levels and other lipid parameters (total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein, low-density lipoprotein, triglyceride, and very low-density lipoprotein) were highly statistically significantly correlated with each other (p<0.01), except for triglyceride levels, where there was no correlation between them (p≥0.05).Conclusion: The current findings revealed that ZAG levels are altered in GDM pregnant women and are beneficial indicators for metabolic status during treatment. ZAG levels correlate well with the lipid profile in GDM pregnant women who received treatment.

    • Authors: Samah Abdelrahman Hassan Ibrahim
      Abstract: Background: Traumatic cerebral contusion is a major global health concern due to its association with poor clinical prognosis. The aim of this study is to determine the risk factors and clinical presentation of traumatic cerebral contusion in Sudan.Methods: A prospective cross- sectional observational hospital-based study was conducted in 90 patients with traumatic cerebral hemorrhagic contusion admitted to the National Center for Neurological Sciences (NCNS) over a period of six months.Results: The results show that most patients were male, age 25 to 44 years, 75.6% from rural areas, and 67.8 % from Afro-Asiatic linguistic affiliated tribes. The most common cause of traumatic brain hemorrhagic contusion was road traffic accidents (RTA) 68.9%, followed by assault 24.4%, and fall 6.7%. About 60% of the patients suffered a frontal lobe injury while 14.4% of the patients had multiple injury sites. Brain edema was observed in 22.2% of the patients. According to the Glasgow Coma Scale, 11.1% suffered severe, 30% moderate and 58.9% mild brain injury. Death rate was 8.9%Conclusion: In conclusion, male gender, age 25-44 years, rural residents and victims of RTA were the most common characteristics observed in patients with traumatic hemorrhagic brain contusion in Sudan. The study also observed that brain edema and anatomical site of hemorrhage were not associated with death while male gender and GCS were. Traumatic cerebral hemorrhagic contusion is a major public health issue in Sudan carrying significant socioeconomic effects.

           primary care-based study

    • Authors: Mohamed Ghaith Al-Kuwari; Ahmad Haj Bakri, Mujeeb Chettiyam Kandy, Jeyaram Illiayraja Krishnan, Jazeel Abdulmajeed Yousef Al-Abdulla
      Abstract: Background: Envenomation caused by snakebites and scorpion stings is a neglected disease responsible for significant morbidity and mortality. In Qatar, little information is available on the epidemiological aspects of snakebites and scorpion stings. This study describes the demographic and epidemiological characteristics of patients treated for scorpion stings or snakebites at Qatar’s Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC).Methods: A retrospective data analysis was applied to investigate the number of scorpion stings and snakebites reported at the PHCC health centers between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2022. The data were electronically extracted from the medical records of the registered population at PHCC.Results: 581 scorpion stings and 21 cases of snakebites were reported between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2022. The highest number of scorpion stings reported in 2020 was 141 cases. The distribution of scorpion stings was higher among males than females, with rates of 86% and 14%, respectively, and the highest number of cases occurred in the age group of 19–39 years. Among the total cases, Bangladeshi and Qatari were the most affected, with a rate of 41% and 14%, respectively. The western region had the highest incidence of scorpion stings, at 7.47 per 10,000 persons.Conclusion: According to this research, the western region had the highest occurrence of scorpion stings cases, primarily among Bangladeshis and Qataris, particularly in the age group of 19–49 years. This study also found similar patterns in snakebite cases. Consequently, this study emphasizes the need for increased investment in antivenom and the training of healthcare professionals to address scorpion stings effectively.
