  • Ablasio retina rhegmatogen bilateral: sebuah laporan kasus

    • Authors: Amicipta Sanjaya, Ari Andayani, I Made Agus Kusumadjaja
      Pages: 310 - 315
      Abstract: Background: Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in children is rare, accounting for less than ten percent of all rhegmatogenous retinal detachments. While the majority of retinal detachments in the adult population are associated with posterior vitreous detachments, pediatric rhegmatogenous retinal detachments are often associated with trauma or an underlying congenital abnormality, although in some cases they are associated with idiopathic conditions. Case Description: A 16-year-old male patient complained about blurry vision in the right eye in the last 6 months and in the left eye in the last 5 months. Ophthalmology examination in the right eye found an inferior retinal detachment (+) at 3-9 o’clock, multiple breaks at 7-9 hours, PVR grade C, subretinal fibrosis (+), traction (+), macula off, RM (-). Meanwhile, ophthalmology examination in the left eye found an inferior retinal detachment in the left eye (+) at 3-9 o’clock, break at 5 o'clock, PVR grade C, traction (+), RM (+). The patient underwent pars plana vitrectomy in both eyes and the patient experienced an increase in visual acuity after surgery on both eyes. Conclusion: This case describes a healthy adolescent male with bilateral rhegmatogenous retinal detachment secondary to spontaneous non-traumatic retinal dialysis. The Pars Plana Vitrectomy (VPP) technique that used in this case could give high final reattachment rate and relatively good functional outcomes. VPP also has the intraocular ability to manipulate tissues and reduce immediate vitreous traction. Latar Belakang: Ablasio retina rhegmatogenous pada anak-anak jarang terjadi, terhitung kurang dari sepuluh persen dari semua ablasio retina rhegmatogen. Sementara sebagian besar ablasio retina pada populasi orang dewasa terkait dengan ablasio vitreous posterior, ablasio retina hegmatogen pediatrik sering kali berhubungan dengan trauma atau kelainan kongenital yang mendasari, walaupun pada beberapa kasus didapatkan dengan kondisi idiopatik. Laporan Kasus: Pasien laki-laki berusia 16 tahun mengeluhkan penurunan pengelihatan pada mata kanan sejak 6 bulan sebelumnya dan pada mata kiri 5 bulan sebelumnya. Pemeriksaan oftalmologi didapatkan AAR di mata kanan dengan retinal detachment (+) di inferior pada jam 3-9, multiple break pada jam 7-9, PVR grade C, fibrosis subretina (+), traksi (+), macula off, RM (-). Pemeriksaan pada mata kiri didapatkan retinal detachment di mata kiri (+) di inferior pada jam 3-9, break pada jam 5, PVR grade C, traksi (+), RM (+). Pasien menjalani vitrektomi pars plana pada kedua mata dan pasien mengalami peningkatan tajam penglihatan setelah dilakukan tindakan operasi pada kedua mata. Kesimpulan: Kasus ini menjelaskan remaja laki-laki sehat dengan bilateral ablasio retina rhegmatogen sekunder akibat retinal spontan non-trauma dialisis. Teknik Vitrektomi Pars Plana (VPP) digunakan pada kasus ini dan mampu memberikan tingkat attachment akhir yang tinggi dan hasil fungsional yang relatif baik serta kemampuan intraokular untuk memanipulasi jaringan dan mengurangi traksi vitreous secara langsung.

  • Anaphylactic reaction: lesson learned from three cases

    • Authors: William Bunga Datu, Emita Raya Katinda, Andrew Suprayogi
      Pages: 316 - 320
      Abstract: Background: An anaphylactic reaction is an emergency that can be life-threatening if not recognized immediately. Signs and symptoms that appear vary from mild to severe. After knowing that it is an anaphylactic reaction, it needs immediate action and special attention, especially from general practitioners who work in the emergency unit. Case presentation: In this scientific publication, three cases will be presented, all of which were found in the emergency room at Cikarang Medika Hospital, Bekasi. These cases of anaphylaxis vary in the onset of signs and symptoms, clinical manifestation, allergen, degree of severity, and therapeutic response. However, in these three cases, the initial management, which was an emergency, was the same for each patient, and all cases occurred at home; thus, education on anaphylaxis in the general community is vital, especially for the patients and their families. Conclusion: As a physician who works in the emergency room is essential to know how to quickly recognize the signs and symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction and carry out treatment as soon as possible so that patients can be helped. The first line treatment is Epinephrine and other treatment may follow after the first line has been given. It is essential that the public needs to know about the occurrence, the cause or trigger, and first aid (what they should do in the event of an anaphylactic reaction).

           type-4 (GLUT4) neuron hipokampus pada tikus model diabetes

    • Authors: Ngakan Putu Proudy Laksmana, Rizka Vidya Lestari, Muhammad Ghalvan Sahidu, Ilsa Hunaifi, Herpan Syafii Harahap, Novrita Padauleng, Nurhidayati
      Pages: 321 - 327
      Abstract: Background: Diabetes mellitus causes many complications, both microvascular and macrovascular, especially cognitive function. Related studies are being carried out to determine the relationship between diabetes and cognitive decline as assessed through GLUT4 expression in the hippocampus. The aimed of this study was to determine the effect of fasting blood sugar on hippocampal neuronal GLUT4 expression in STZ and NA-induced diabetic rats. Methods: This study was an experimental design, using 24 males Rattus novergicus which were divided into a control group terminated on day 14 (A0) and 28 (B0) and a diabetes group terminated on day 14 (A1) and 28 (B2). Diabetes was induced using intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ) and Nicotinamide (NA). Spatial memory (travel time) of rats was assessed on days 14 and 28. Sampling used secondary data, fasting blood glucose (FBG) was measured using a glucometer and brain tissue was taken to assess GLUT4 expression using immunohistochemical methods. Differences in the mean FBG and GLUT4 expression between groups on days 14 and 28 and were tested statistically using SPSS version 22 Results: The mean FBG and GLUT4 expression in the diabetic group were significantly higher than those in the control group on day 14 and day 28. However, it was not significant compared between diabetes groups on day 14 and day 28. Immunohistochemical examination confirmed these results. There is a strong correlation between mean FBG levels and mean GLUT4 expression with travel time in the diabetes group on days 14 and 28 (r=0.88, p<0.05). Conclusion: Fasting blood glucose levels significantly affected hippocampal neuronal GLUT4 expression in STZ and NA-induced diabetic rats. Latar belakang: Diabetes mellitus banyak menimbulkan komplikasi serius baik mikrovaskuler dan makrovaskuler, khususnya pada fungsi kognitif. Studi terkait sedang terus dilaksanakan untuk mengetahui hubungan terkait antara kondisi diabetes dengan penurunan fungsi kognitif yang dinilai memalui ekspresi GLUT4 di hippocampus. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk mengevaluasi pengaruh kadar gula darah puasa terhadap ekspresi GLUT4 neuron hipokampus pada tikus model diabetes. Metode: Penelitian dengan desain eksperimental, menggunakan 24 ekor Rattus novergicus jantan yang dibagi menjadi kelompok kontrol yang diterminasi pada hari ke-14 (A0) dan 28 (B0) dan kelompok diabetes yang diterminasi pada hari ke-14 (A1) dan 28 (B2). Diabetes diinduksi menggunakan suntikan streptozotocin (STZ) dan Nikotinamid (NA) secara intraperitoneal. Memori spasial (waktu tempuh) tikus dinilai pada hari ke-14 dan 28. Pengambilan sampel menggunakan data sekunder, gula darah puasa (GDP) diukur menggunakan glucometer dan pengambilan jaringan otak dilakukan untuk penilaian ekspresi GLUT4 menggunakan metode imunohistokimia. Perbedaan rerata GDP dan ekspresi GLUT4 antar kelompok pada hari ke-14 dan 28 serta dilakukan uji secara statistik menggunakan SPSS versi 22. Hasil: Rerata GDP dan ekspresi GLUT4 pada kelompok diabetes secara signifikan lebih tinggi dibandingkan dengan kontrol pada hari ke-14 maupun hari ke 28. Akan tetapi tidak signifikan dibandingkan antar kelompok diabetes pada hari ke-14 dengan hari ke-28. Pemeriksaan imunohistokimia mengkonfirmasi hasil ini. Terdapat korelasi yang kuat pada hubungan yang rerata kadar GDP dengan rerata ekspresi GLUT4 dengan waktu tempuh pada kelompok diabetes pada hari ke-14 dan 28 (r=0,88, p<0,05). Simpulan: Kadar gula darah puasa berpengaruh secara signifikan terhadap ekspresi GLUT4 neuron hipokampus pada tikus model.

    • Authors: I Gusti Agung Istri Gladys Elsyaningrat, Komang Januartha Putra Pinatih, Ni Nengah Dwi Fatmawati, Agus Eka Darwinata
      Pages: 328 - 334
      Abstract: Background: Food contamination is a serious problem. Salmonella sp is one of the main bacteria causing gastrointestinal disease, especially in raw pork, due to the production and distribution process. Traditional markets have high risk of pathogenic microbial contamination. The purpose of this study was to detect contamination of Salmonella sp. on pork sold in traditional markets, particularly in Denpasar, Bali. Method: This research is a cross-sectional descriptive, with the samples coming from the porks sold by traditional market traders in every sub-district in Denpasar, Bali. The sampling technique used is the cluster purposive sampling. The procedure for identification of Salmonella sp. using culture and subculture examination on Salmonella Shigella Agar (SSA), simmon citrate agar media, and identification of the microscope. Results: Based on SSA culture results from 38 samples, 26 samples of pork showed colony growth, but only 10 samples with typical morphology of Salmonella sp. The 16 samples with atypical morphology were examined for SSA subculture, with 9 samples having clear black colonies. In 19 research samples that showed the results were suspected to be contaminated with Salmonella sp. continued to the Simmons citrate test, but only 8 samples were positive. The 19 samples were also examined under a microscope and all samples showed a rod image and red color indicating that the colonies in the sample were gram-negative bacilli which are typical of the morphology of Salmonella sp. Conclusion: Contamination of Salmonella was found in pork sold at Traditional Markets in Denpasar with a prevalence of 21%. Latar belakang: Kontaminasi makanan merupakan suatu masalah serius. Salmonella sp merupakan salah satu bakteri penyebab utama penyakit gastrointestinal, terutama pada daging babi mentah, dikarenakan pada proses produksi dan distribusi. Pasar tradisional merupakan tempat yang sangat rawan dan beresiko cukup tinggi terhadap cemaran mikroba patogen. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah mendeteksi ada tidaknya cemaran bakteri Salmonella sp. pada daging babi yang dijual di Pasar Tradisional, khususnya di Denpasar, Bali. Metode: Penelitian ini merupakan deskriptif potong lintang, dengan sampel penelitian berupa daging babi yang dijual oleh pedagang pasar tradisional di setiap kecamatan di Kota Denpasar, Bali. Teknik penentuan sampel yang digunakan yaitu teknik cluster purposive sampling. Prosedur identifikasi kontaminasi Salmonella sp. menggunakan pemeriksaan kultur serta subkultur pada Salmonella Shigella Agar (SSA), Kultur pada media simmon citrate agar, dan identifikasi mikroskop. Hasil: Berdasarkan hasil kultur SSA dari 38 sampel daging babi, 26 sampel daging babi menunjukan adanya pertumbuhan koloni, namun hanya 10 sampel dengan morfologi khas Salmonella sp. Pada 16 sampel dengan morfologi tidak khas dilakukan pemeriksaan subkultur SSA, dengan 9 sampel memiliki warna koloni hitam bening. Pada 19 sampel penelitian yang menunjukan hasil terduga terkontaminasi Salmonella sp. dilanjutkan ke uji Simmons citrate, namun hanya 8 sampel dengan hasil positif. Pada 19 sampel juga dilakukan pemeriksaan mikroskop dan seluruh sampel menunjukkan gambaran batang serta berwarna merah yang menandakan bahwa koloni pada sampel adalah basil gram negatif yang khas pada morfologi bakteri Salmonella sp. Kesimpulan: Terdapat cemaran patogen Salmonella sp. pada daging babi yang dijual di Pasar Tradisional di Denpasar dengan prevalensi sebesar 21%.

  • Pengaruh ekstrak etanol umbi ubi jalar ungu terhadap kadar dopamin
           striatum dan perilaku stereotipi pada tikus wistar yang diinduksi

    • Authors: Putu Asih Primatanti
      Pages: 335 - 339
      Abstract: Background: Anthocyanins are flavonoids that have various potentials such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiapoptotic. One source of anthocyanins which is common among the Indonesian are purple sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.). Its potential can be used to prevent and treat the effects of substances including psychostimulants. Methylphenidate (MPH) is one of the psychostimulants used as therapeutic option for ADHD, but its use has several controversies, such as the occurrence of toxicity and long-term damage. This study aimed to examine the effect of purple sweet potato ethanol extract on levels of the striatum dopamine neurotransmitter and stereotypic behavior in methylphenidate-induced rats. Method: This research is a randomized posttest–only control group. Samples were male Wistar rats (Rattus norvegicus), aged 6-8 weeks (randomly divided into 2 groups). The treatment group was given purple sweet potato ethanol extract before MPH injection. Examination of dopamine levels using ELISA and stereotyped behavior were assessed using the stereotyped behavior rating scale. Statistical test was by Mann Witney test and independent t-test. Results: The results showed striatum dopamine levels were significantly lower in the treatment group (given purple sweet potato ethanol extract before MPH was induced) than the control (6.83±2.83 vs. 10.02±4.35; p<0.05). Stereotypic behavior in the treatment group was significantly lower than the control group (3.46±0.63 vs. 3.96±0.70; p<0.05). Conclusion: The ethanolic extract of purple sweet potato is thought to have antidopaminergic potential and cause a decrease in stereotypic behavior in MPH-induced wistar rats. Latar belakang: Antosianin merupakan flavonoid yang memiliki berbagai potensi seperti antioksidan, antiinflamasi dan antiapoptosis. Salah satu sumber antosianin yang mudah ditemukan dan cukup umum di kalangan penduduk lokal Indonesia adalah ubi jalar ungu (Ipomoea batatas L.). Potensinya dapat mencegah dan mengobati dampak yang ditimbulkan oleh zat psikostimulan. Methylphenidate (MPH) merupakan salah satu psikostimulan yang digunakan sebagai pilihan terapi untuk Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), namun pemakaiannya memiliki beberapa kontroversi seperti terjadinya efek toksik, penyalahgunaan dan timbulnya kerusakan jangka panjang. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk melihat pengaruh pemberian ekstrak etanol ubi jalar ungu terhadap kadar neurotransmiter dopamin striatum dan perilaku stereotipi pada tikus yang diinduksi methylphenidate. Metode: Rancangan penelitian yang digunakan yaitu randomized posttest–only control group. Sampel penelitian adalah tikus (Rattus norvegicus) galur Wistar jantan, berumur 6-8 minggu (secara random dibagi dalam 2 kelompok). Kelompok perlakuan diberikan ekstrak etanol ubi jalar ungu sebelum diinjeksi MPH, sedangkan kelompok kontrol tidak. Pemeriksaan kadar dopamin menggunakan teknik Elisa dan perilaku stereotipi dinilai memakai stereotyped behavior rating scale. Uji statistik menggunakan uji mann witney dan independent t-test. Hasil: Hasil penelitian menunjukkan kadar dopamin striatum lebih rendah secara bermakna pada kelompok perlakuan (diberikan ekstrak etanol ubi jalar ungu sebelum diinduksi MPH) dibandingkan kontrol (6,83±2,83 vs. 10,02±4,35; p<0,05). Perilaku stereotipi pada kelompok perlakuan lebih rendah secara signifikan dibandingkan kontrol (3,46±0,63 vs. 3,96±0,70; p<0,05). Kesimpulan: Ekstrak etanol ubi jalar ungu diperkirakan memiliki potensi antidopaminergik dan menyebabkan penurunan perilaku stereotipi pada tikus wistar yang diinduksi MPH.

  • Profil penggunaan antibiotik pada pasien pneumonia di komunitas: tinjauan

    • Authors: Nanda Faradita, Rika Yulia, Fauna Herawati
      Pages: 340 - 345
      Abstract: Background: Community pneumonia referred to as community acquired pneumonia is pneumonia that is often found in the community and the leading cause of death for infectious diseases. This pneumonia requires therapy with antibiotics. One of the main problems in using antibiotics is the occurrence of antibiotic resistance. This study aims to determine the profile of antibiotic use in patients with community acquired pneumonia, which is commonly referred as acquired pneumonia in the community. Methods: This study is a literature review that uses articles with a randomized controlled trial design and articles in Indonesian or English and has a publication year, namely the last 10 years. The keywords used were "Treatment" AND "Community acquaired pneumonia" AND "Antibiotic or Antimicrobial" AND "Mortality OR Clinical response OR Severity". Results: The quality of journals in this study was assessed by means of a critical appraisal skills program checklist and journal reputation. The results obtained were 9 articles that met the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The antibiotic that is often used in outpatient community acquired pneumonia without comorbidities is nemonoxacin 500 mg and in non-severe hospitalized patients the commonly used antibiotic is beta-lactam monotherapy. Conclusion: The conclusion in this study is that the antibiotic that is often used in outpatient CAP patients is Nemonoxacin 500 mg while inpatient CAP is beta-lactam monotherapy so that in both groups the use of antibiotics is not in accordance with the 2019 ATS guidelines therefore requires monitoring the use of antibiotics in patients with community acquired pneumonia. Latar belakang: Pneumonia komunitas atau biasanya disebut dengan community acquired pneumonia yaitu pneumonia yang sering didapatkan di masyarakat dan merupakan penyebab kematian penyakit menular tertinggi. Pneumonia ini membutuhkan terapi dengan menggunakan antibiotik. Salah satu masalah utama dalam penggunaan antibiotik adalah terjadinya resistensi antibiotik. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui profil penggunaan antibiotik pada pasien community acquired pneumonia atau biasanya disebut dengan pneumonia yang didapatkan di komunitas. Metode : Penelitian ini merupakan kajian literatur yang menggunakan artikel dengan desain randomized controlled trial dan artikel yang menggunakan bahasa Indonesia atau bahasa inggris dan memiliki tahun publikasi yaitu 10 tahun terakhir. Kata kunci yang digunakan adalah "Treatment" AND "Community acquaired pneumonia" AND “Antibiotic or Antimicrobial” AND “Mortality or Clinical response or Severity”. Hasil : Kualitas jurnal pada penelitian ini dinilai dengan checklist critical appraisal skill program dan reputasi jurnal. Hasil yang didapatkan adalah 9 artikel yang memenuhi kriteria inklusi dan ekslusi. Antibiotik yang sering digunakan pada pasien community acquired pneumonia rawat jalan tanpa komorbiditas adalah nemonoxacin 500 mg dan pada pasien rawat inap non severe antibiotik yang sering digunakan adalah monoterapi beta-laktam Kesimpulan : pada penelitian ini adalah Antibiotik yang sering digunakan pada pasien CAP rawat jalan adalah Nemonoxacin 500 mg sedangkan pada CAP rawat inap adalah monoterapi beta-laktam sehingga pada kedua kelompok tersebut penggunaan antibiotik tidak sesuai dengan guideline ATS tahun 2019 sehingga masih membutuhkan pengawan penggunaan antibiotik pada pasien community acquired pneumonia.

  • Perbandingan kadar C-reactive protein (CRP) berdasarkan jenis herniotomi
           dan hubungannya dengan keluaran klinis pada hernia inguinalis indirek anak

    • Authors: Giovani Fatrio Odo, I Made Darmajaya, Nyoman Golden
      Pages: 346 - 351
      Abstract: Background: Hernia is a protrusion or protrusion of the contents of a cavity through a defect or weak part of the abdominal cavity wall. The standard procedure in the form of herniotomy for indirect inguinal hernias in children can be performed open surgically or laparoscopically. Because there is still a lot of debate about the inflammatory response and outcomes that arise in patients undergoing laparoscopy and open herniotomy, this study was conducted with the aim of evaluating differences in CRP levels in pediatric patients after open herniotomy and laparoscopic herniotomy and their impact on surgical outcomes in the form of wound healing time, length of hospitalization and postoperative pain. Methods: This study is a prospective cohort study using primary data carried out at Sanglah Central General Hospital (RSUP) Sanglah from January to December 2020. Data in the form of gender, the side of the hernia, age, CRP levels, duration of hospitalization, duration of wound healing , postoperative pain scale, duration of surgery, hemoglobin, and BMI were taken from the patient's medical record. After the data was collected, univariate and bivariate analysis was carried out using SPSS 20. Result: A total of 38 patients who were the subjects of this study in the open surgical and laparoscopic groups were 19 subjects each. The mean CRP level in the open surgical group was higher (4.58 ± 1.82 mg/L) than the laparoscopic group (3.53 ± 1.53 mg/L). The duration of hospitalization and wound healing in the open surgical group was found to be longer (1.11 ± 0.32 days; 6.58 ± 0.51 days) when compared to the laparoscopic group (1.05 ± 0.23 days; 4.42 ± 0.51 days). The mean postoperative pain scale measurement results were higher in the open surgical group (2.84 ± 0.77) compared to the laparoscopic group (1.53 ± 0.51). The results showed that there was a statistically significant correlation (p<0.05; p<0.05) with a weak correlation coefficient (r = 0.468; r = 0.457). Conclusion: The laparoscopic technique was found to be superior in terms of the resulting inflammatory response, duration of wound healing, postoperative pain scale, and duration of hospitalization when compared to the open surgery technique. While the duration of hospitalization between the two groups was the same. Latar belakang: Hernia merupakan protrusi atau penonjolan isi suatu rongga melalui defek atau bagian lemah dari dinding rongga abdomen. Prosedur standar berupa herniotomi pada hernia inguinal indirek anak dapat dilakukan secara open surgical ataupun laparoskopi. Oleh karena masih banyaknya perdebatan mengenai respon inflamasi dan luaran yang timbul pada pasien yang menjalani laparoskopi dan open herniotomy, penilitian ini dilakukan dengan tujuan untuk mengevaluasi perbedaan kadar CRP pada pasien anak pasca open herniotomy dan laparoskopi herniotomi serta dampaknya terhadap luaran operasi berupa lama penyembuhan luka, lama rawat inap serta nyeri paska operasi. Metode: Studi ini merupakan studi kohort prospektif dengan menggunakan data primer yang dilaksanakan di Rumah Sakit Umum Pusat Sanglah (RSUP) Sanglah sejak Januari hingga Desember 2020. Data berupa jenis kelamin, sisi yang mengalami hernia, usia, kadar CRP, durasi rawat inap, lama penyembuhan luka, skala nyeri pasca operasi, durasi operasi, hemoglobin, dan IMT diambil dari rekam medis pasien. Setelah data terkumpul, dilakukan analisis univariat dan bivariat dengan menggunakan SPSS 20. Hasil: Sebanyak 38 pasien yang menjadi subjek penelitian ini dengan kelompok open surgical dan laparoskopi terdapat masing-masing 19 subjek. Rerata kadar CRP pada kelompok open surgical lebih tinggi (4.58 ± 1.82 mg/L) dibandingkan dengan kelompok laparoskopi (3.53 ± 1.53 mg/L).

      Abstract: Background: Pathogenic bacteria on eggshells or egg contents will be very dangerous for the health of humans who consume them. Chemicals should not be an option for preservatives because they will cause side effects. In this study, we explored the possibility of using bay leaf extract (Syzygium polyanthum (Wight) Walp) to control the growth of polluting bacteria in salted duck eggs so that the shelf life can be extended. The purpose of the study was to determine the potential of the active compounds contained in bay leaves in reducing the total plate count/microbial contamination in salted duck eggs. Methods: Extraction of bay leaf powder was carried out by the infusion method. The activity test of bay leaf decoction (ARDS) was carried out using the in vitro diffusion well method on Mueller Hinton media. Identification of active compounds was carried out using the GCMS technique. Results: ARDS crude extract at a concentration of 5% (v/v) could significantly reduce ALT and inhibit the in vitro growth of Proteus mirabilis bacteria at a concentration of 10% (w/v), with an inhibition zone diameter of 19.53 mm, with the minimum value inhibitory concentration (MIC) 0.7%. The results of the GCMS analysis of ARDS showed that the ten peaks produced, possibly synergized, and had antimicrobial activity. These compounds are 2-Pentanone4-Hydroxy-4 Methyl (CAS) Diacetone Alcohol; Ethanol, 2-(Ethoxythoxy) (CAS); 1,2,3 Propanetrriol Cas) Glycerol; Citronella (2,6-Octadien-1-Ol, 3,7-Dimethyl, (CAS); Beta Citronellol 6-Octen-1-Ol, 3,7 Dimethyl-(CAS); Trans Geraniol; Dodecanoic Acid, Methyl Ester (CAS) Methyl Laurate; Tetradecanoic Acid, Methyl Ester (CAS) Methyl Myristate; 1-Tetradecanol (Cas) Alfol 14 and Hexadecanoic Acid Methyl Ester CAS) Methyl Palmitate Conclusion: Leaf decoction can inhibit the growth of Proteus mirabilis in vitro, and the addition of ARDS with a concentration of 5% (v/v) can significantly reduce the value of bacterial contamination in salted duck eggs. Latar Belakang: Bakteri pathogen pada kulit telur atau isi telur akan sangat membahayakan kesehatan manusia yang mengkonsumsinya.

      Abstract: Background: The prevalence of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) varies, ranging from 3% to 20% of hospitalized patients and 25% to 67% of ICU patients, with 5% to 6% of the ICU population requiring renal replacement therapy following AKI. Establishing the diagnosis of AKI with KDIGO criteria using serum creatinine marker. Serum creatinine has a sensitivity of 52.9% and a specificity of 85.7% for AKI. The Sensitivity and specisifity of serum creatinine is not good because it can increase without any real injury or do not change even though acute tubular injury has occurred due to compensation for increased function by the remaining nephrons. L-FABP (Liver type Fatty Acid Binding Protein) and BTP (Beta Trace Protein) serum are newly discovered biomarkers potential for the early diagnosis of acute kidney damage. This study was conducted to determine the change in L-FABP and BTP concentration levels as markers of AKI. Method: This study is a longitudinal observational study with patients suffering from AKI with serum samples taken before and after an increase in serum creatinine level of ≥0.3 mg/dL in 48 hours. Serum levels of L-FABP and BTP were examined by ELISA method, and serum creatinine by enzymatic colorimetric. Differences between levels before and during AKI were analyzed by the Wilcoxon test. Results: The number of research subjects was 40 people. There was significant difference between serum creatinine before and during AKI (1.97 (1.36-2.77) mg/dL vs. 3.52 (2.53-4.91). mg/dL, p<0.001). Indeed there were also significant differences in serum L-FABP before and during AKI (3775.48 (1614.11-5086.68) ng/mL vs. 5427.28 (4562.79-5765.14) ng/mL, p<0.001), and serum BTP levels before and during AKI (456.36 (290.35-591.67) mg/L vs. 518.38 (436.37-691.90) mg/L, p<0.001). Conclusion: Serum levels of L-FABP and BTP increased significantly in the condition of the AKI so that it has the potential to be a marker for the diagnosis of AKI. Latar belakang: Prevalensi cedera ginjal akut (Acute Kidney Injury/AKI) bervariasi, sekitar 3% hingga 20% dari pasien rawat inap dan 25% hingga 67% dari pasien ICU, dengan 5% hingga 6% dari populasi ICU membutuhkan terapi penggantian ginjal setelah terjadi AKI. Penegakan diagnosis AKI dengan kriteria KDIGO menggunakan marker serum kreatinin. Serum kreatinin mempunyai sensitivitas 52,9% dan spesifisitas 85,7% untuk AKI. Sensitivitas dan spesifisitas serum kreatinin tersebut kurang baik karena kadar serum kreatinin dapat meningkat tanpa ada cedera nyata maupun tidak berubah meskipun telah terjadi cedera tubulus akut karena adanya kompensasi peningkatan fungsi oleh nefron yang tersisa. Serum L-FABP (Liver type Fatty Acid Binding Protein) dan BTP (Beta Trace Protein) adalah biomarker yang ditemukan untuk diagnosis dini AKI. Penelitian ini dilakukan untuk mengetahui perubahan kadar serum L-FABP dan BTP sebagai penanda terjadinya AKI. Metode: Penelitian ini adalah penelitian observasional longitudinal dengan subyek pasien yang menderita AKI dengan sampel serum yang diambil sebelum dan sesudah terjadi peningkatan kadar serum kreatinin ≥0,3 mg/dL dalam 48 jam. Kadar serum L-FABP dan BTP diperiksa dengan metode ELISA, dan serum kreatinin dengan metode enzimatik kolorimetrik. Perbedaan antara kadar sebelum dan saat AKI dianalisis dengan uji Wilcoxon. Hasil: Jumlah subyek penelitian adalah 40 orang. Terdapat perbedaan bermakna antara kreatinin serum sebelum dan selama AKI (1,97 (1,36-2,77) mg/dL vs 3,52 (2,53-4,91), mg/dL, p<0,001. Teradapat juga perbedaan yang signifikan dalam serum L-FABP sebelum dan selama AKI (3775,48 (1614,11-5086,68) ng/mL vs 5427,28 (4562,79-5765,14) ng/mL, p<0,001), dan kadar BTP serum sebelum dan selama AKI (456,36 (290,35-591,67) mg/L vs. 518,38 (436,37-691,90) mg/L, p<0,001). Simpulan: Kadar serum L-FABP dan BTP meningkat signifikan pada kondisi AKI sehingga berpotensi menjadi marker untuk diagnosis AKI.

  • The role of Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 in craniofacial osteogenesis: A
           literature review

    • Authors: I Gusti Putu Hendra Sanjaya, Sri Maliawan
      Pages: 390 - 392
      Abstract: Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) is a type of growth factor that belongs to the Transforming Growth Factor Beta (TGF-B) group. Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 (BMP-2) is recognized as one of the first commercially available osteoblast inductors. When new bone is needed, mesenchymal stem cells can develop into osteoblasts, which then implant as osteocytes in the bone, providing additional structure and support. The principal agent that differentiates stem cells into osteoblasts is BMP-2. BMP-2 will be released into the bone matrix or serum in performing their job. BMP-2 activates the SMAD1/5/8 signal via mediating the physiological action of type I and II serine/threoninekine receptors. The active SMAD protein will form a complex with the SMAD4 protein, translocate DNA to the nucleus, and bind to particular genes like Dlx-2/5, Osx, and transcription. According to a recent study, BMP-2 boosts osteogenic growth. BMPs are effective in the treatment of craniofacial defects in current research. The subjects of this paper are the molecular mechanism of BMPs and their involvement in the clinical application of craniofacial deformity patients.

      Abstract: Introduction: Inflammation response and endothelial damage caused by COVID-19 resulting coagulopathy by increased D-dimer level. High D-dimer can predict COVID-19 severity. This research conducted to know the correlation, risk, and prediction of severe COVID-19 infection in patients with high D-dimer levels. Method: Cross-sectional with bivariate and multivariates logistic regression analysis was conducted. Samples are ≥18 years old with COVID-19 hospitalized in Tabanan regional hospital during October 2021- March 2022. Data collected from medical records. Patients with chronic liver disease, congestive heart disease, malignancy, post-surgery, pregnancy, and deep vein thrombosis are excluded. COVID-19 severity criterias are based on COVID-19 management protocol. Result: Of 84 patients, 63.1% males and 58.3% ≥ 60 years old. Mean D-dimer level in severe COVID-19 patients are 3,256.06 ng/ml, and 1,543.02 ng/ml in non-severe (p = 0.014, CI 95%: 435.568–2,990.51). Cut-off point of D-dimer level is 788.5 ng/ml, with 71.9% sensitivity and 69.2% specificity on the receiver operating characteristics curve. A significant correlation is found between D-dimer level above cut-off and COVID-19 infection severity (OR 5.75, CI 95%: 2.18-15.16, p= 0.001). Correlation is still significant after variables age ≥60 years old and DM comorbidity adjusted (OR 5.32, CI 95%: 1,922-14,729, p=0.001). Probability of severe COVID-19 infection in patients ≥60 years old with D-dimer level > 788.5 ng/ml and has DM comorbidity is 83.24%. Conclusion: COVID-19 infection severity correlates with increased D-dimer levels with risk more than 5 times after variables age ≥60 years old and DM comorbidity adjusted, with moderate categorized prediction accuracy.

      Abstract: Introduction: Callus and clavus are skin disorders in the form of hyperkeratotic lesions that are common and can affect the patient's quality of life. Callus and clavus can occur in men or women of all ages. Treatment of callus and clavus has a low cost benefit but has received little attention and until now there is no gold standard of treatment that is considered ideal. Data on callus and clavus characteristics, common treatments, and the final outcome of callus and clavus therapy have not been widely reported so that it has an impact on the standard management of these two lesions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the description of callus and clavus cases in the form of gender, age, location lesions, management, and cure rate 1 month after therapy in the Outpatient Unit (URJ) Skin and Venereology Tumor Division and Skin Surgery (TBK) Regional General Hospital (RSUD) Dr. Soetomo, Surabaya. Methods: A cross-sectional retrospective descriptive study on 25 Electronic Medical Records (EMR) patients with callus and clavus who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria at the Dermatology and Venereology Outpatient Unit, Skin Surgery Tumor Division (TBK) RSUD Dr. Soetomo Surabaya period January 2016 - December 2020. Results: Twenty-five samples were recruited in this study consisting of 13 (52%) male patients and 12 (48%) female patients. Clavus dominated all cases in 20 (80%) cases, while callus was in 5 (20%) cases. The lower extremity was the most common site for lesions in 20 (80%) cases. Excision was the most frequently chosen method in 21 (84%) cases. Clinical recovery after 1 month after therapy was obtained in 20 (80%) cases. Conclusion: Management of callus and clavus in URJ Skin and Venereology, TBK Division, RSUD Dr. Soetomo, Surabaya showed a cure rate of 80% with the most preferred modality being excision. Pendahuluan: Kalus dan klavus adalah kelainan kulit berupa lesi hiperkeratotik yang umum didapatkan dan dapat mempengaruhi kualitas hidup pasien. Kalus dan klavus dapat terjadi pada pria ataupun wanita di segala rentang usia. Tatalaksana kalus dan klavus memiliki cost benefit yang rendah namun kurang mendapat perhatian dan hingga saat ini belum terdapat standar emas tatalaksana yang dianggap ideal. Data karakteristik kalus dan klavus, tatalaksana yang umum dilakukan, dan hasil akhir dari terapi kalus dan klavus belum banyak dilaporkan sehingga berdampak pada standar manajemen kedua lesi tersebut. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah mengevaluasi gambaran kasus kalus dan klavus berupa jenis kelamin, usia, lokasi lesi, tatalaksana, dan angka kesembuhan 1 bulan paska terapi di Unit Rawat Jalan (URJ) Kulit dan Kelamin Divisi Tumor dan Bedah Kulit (TBK) Rumah Sakit Umum Daerah (RSUD) Dr. Soetomo, Surabaya.

    • Authors: Yogi Priyatna Biantara, Surya Fajari Widhiarma, Widia Trilaksana Kusuma
      Pages: 404 - 409
      Abstract: Background: Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) are still a priority in treating juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The choice of drug therapy for the NSAIDs as an alternative to the therapy used in managing JIA cases due to the side effects of DMARDs. However, the former discussion of the choices therapy of NSAID therapy in JIA patients is still limited. This systematic review was conducted to present any choices of NSAIDs used for the treatment JIA and presented their effectiveness and adverse reaction compared with other NSAIDs used for treating JIA. Methods: Comprehensive electronic searches were performed in PubMed/Medline, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library, choosing Randomized Controlled Trials of NSAIDs for treating children with JIA up to January 2009. The risk of bias was assessed using the Cochrane Risk of Bias Tools for randomized controlled trials. Results: Eight eligible randomized controlled trials (RCT) out of 1309 studies were included, with a total of 1112 participants with JIA identified, addressing 19 kinds of interventions with nine types of medications. First RCT concluded that Celecoxib 3 mg/kg and Celecoxib 6 mg/kg were at least as effective as naproxen 7.5 mg/kg in terms of reducing clinical symptoms of arthritis and joint swelling. Second RCT concluded that Low Dose (0,3 mg/kg) and High Dose (0.6mg/kg) Rofecoxib showed a greater improvement than the Naproxen group to relieve the pain. The third RCT stated that good efficacy or satisfaction is most frequent in the participant with Meloxicam 0.125 mg/kg rather than Meloxicam 0.25 mg/kg or Naproxen 10 mg/kg. Fourth RCT concluded that Ibuprofen 30-40 mg/kg/d is an effective agent for symptomatic treatment of JIA and is well-tolerated in many children. Fifth RCT informed that Piroxicam show more effective in controlling the symptoms and improving function than Naproxen 10 mg/kg/day. Sixth RCT concluded that Acetylsalicylic acid 75 mg/kg/day has better efficacy than Naproxen 10 mg/kg/d in relieving the symptoms. The seventh study stated that both diclofenac sodium 2-3 mg/kg/day and acetylsalicylic acid 50-100 mg/kg/d at least as good as placebo. The last RCTs study stated that tolmetin 15 mg/kg/day decreased the duration of morning stiffness and reduced joint pain. Also, aspirin 50mg/kg/day resulted in ROM improvement in JIA patients. Conclusions: We present Celecoxib, Rofecoxib, Meloxicam, Ibuprofen, Piroxicam, Acetylsalicylic Acid (ASA), Diclofenac Sodium, Tolmetin Sodium, and Naproxen as the NSAIDs choice drugs on pediatric patient diagnosed with JIA. which has each adverse event on each therapy.

      Pages: 410 - 416
      Abstract: Background: Keloids are nodular tumors with a soft and spongy consistency and have a shiny and soft surface. Lesions are absent in hair follicles and adnexal glands. The main mediators include transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β), interleukin-1 (IL-1), interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor (TNF), and vascular growth factor (VEGF). This case discusses the combination therapy of electrosurgery and frozen surgery in treating keloids. Case description: A woman, 34 years old, Indonesian, has complained of a lump on her left shoulder since ten years ago, which has been getting harder and harder, sometimes accompanied by pain and itching. There was a solitary hyperpigmented nodule in the left deltoid region with firm boundaries, geographic shape, measuring 5.7 cm x 4 cm x 0.8 cm, regular edges, and a smooth and shiny surface. On palpation, the consistency is firm and firm. Dermoscopy showed multiple erythema nodules with vascular structures in the form of arborizing vessels and linear irregular vessels. Electrocauter surgery was performed with cut mode and continued with cryo surgery and the antibiotic ointment gentamicin 0.1% topically every 12 hours on lesions that have undergone electrosurgery, frozen surgery, and paracetamol tablets 500 mg every 8 hours intraorally if pain. On the 36th day of observation, clinical improvement of the lesions was found. Conclusion: Cryo surgery is minimally invasive and can be combined with electrocautery surgery to reduce bleeding. The lesion improvement was seen after the combination treatment was given, although there were still hypertrophic scar lesions. Latar belakang: Keloid merupakan tumor nodular dengan konsistensi lunak dan kenyal, memiliki permukaan berkilauan dan lunak. Lesi tidak terdapat pada folikel rambut dan kelenjar adneksal. Mediator utama meliputi transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β), interleukin-1 (IL-1), interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor (TNF), dan vascular growth factor (VEGF). Kasus ini membahas terapi kombinasi bedah listrik dan bedah beku pada penanganan keloid. Kasus: Wanita, 34 tahun, warga negara Indonesia, mengeluh adanya benjolan pada bahu kiri sejak 10 tahun yang lalu yang semakin lama semakin keras, terkadang disertai rasa nyeri dan gatal. Pada regio deltoid sinistra didapatkan adanya nodul hiperpigmentasi soliter batas tegas, bentuk geografika, berukuran 5,7 cm x 4 cm x 0,8 cm, tepi reguler, permukaan halus dan mengkilat. Pada palpasi didapatkan konsistensi padat kenyal dan terfiksir. Dermoskopi didapatkan gambaran nodul eritema multipel dengan struktur vaskular berupa arborizing vessels dan linear irregular vessels. Dilakukan tindakan bedah listrik dengan mode cut dan dilanjutkan dengan bedah beku serta salep antibiotik gentamisin 0,1% tiap 12 jam secara topikal pada lesi yang telah dilakukan bedah listrik dan bedah beku dan parasetamol tablet 500 mg tiap 8 jam intraoral bila nyeri. Pengamatan hari ke 36 didapatkan perbaikan klinis lesi. Simpulan: Bedah beku merupakan tindakan invasif minimal dan dapat dikombinasikan dengan bedah listrik untuk mengurangi perdarahan selama tidakan dilakukan. Perbaikan lesi telihat setelah diberikan tindakan kombinasi walaupun masih terdapat lesi skar hiperterofik.

  • Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AHA) with hyperglycemia in a 22-year-old
           woman: a case report

    • Authors: Fran Siska, Saskia Ramadhani, Anik Widijianti
      Pages: 417 - 420
      Abstract: Background: Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is defined as increased erythrocyte destruction due to anti-erythrocyte autoantibodies with or without complement activation. Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by elevated blood glucose levels, which cause serious damage to various organs, including the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. The impact of DM on a patient's survival with AIHA is unknown. Case Presentation: A 22-year-old woman complained of dizziness and fainting before admission. The patient looked pale; on physical examination, we found jaundice on the sclera. This patient was diagnosed with AIHA and DM with increased HbA1c (10.8%) since 2017 but did not take the anti-diabetic drugs regularly. Hematological examination showed anemia, increased reticulocytes, and a positive direct Coombs test. The result of increased fasting glucose, 2 hours OGTT, and HbA1c levels (4.6%) tests were not relevant to hyperglycemia. In this patient, we also found normal C-peptide levels. The decrease in HbA1c levels was thought to be due to hemolytic anemia; therefore, HbA1c was falsely low due to rapid erythrocyte turnover. Conclusion: This patient was diagnosed with DM based on American Diabetes Association criteria with normal C-peptide levels, suggesting Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young with HbA1c incompatibility with glucose levels may be due to rapid erythrocyte turnover.

      Pages: 421 - 425
      Abstract: Background: COVID-19 infects all patients of all ages including the elderly. Several studies have shown that complete blood counts can be used as a marker of the severity of COVID-19. This study aims to examine complete blood counts with the severity of COVID-19 in elderly patients at the Tabanan Regional General Hospital (RSUD) in 2021. Methods: This research was conducted using an retrospective study method, using 277 samples taken from secondary data (patient medical records) at Tabanan General Hospital. The independent variables of study including haemoglobin, haematocrit, leukocytes, relative lymphocyte levels, relative neutrophil levels, neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR), relative eosinophil levels, relative basophil levels, relative monocyte levels, platelets, and depending variable is the severity of the patient, divided to moderate, severe, critically ill. Data analysis using SPSS version 26 for Windows. Results: Complete blood counts were significantly correlated with Lymphocytes (r2 = 0,069; p < 0,001), Monocyte (r2 = 0,045; p < 0,001), Leukocyte (r2 = 0,037; p = 0,001), NLR (r2 = 0,03; p = 0,004), Eosinophil (r2 = 0,022; p = 0,013), and Haematocrit (r2 = 0,069; p = 0,022). Conclusion: In this study, complete blood count (leukocytes, NLR, haematocrit with a positive value correlation, and lymphocytes, eosinophils, monocytes with a negative value correlations) can be used as predictors to assess the severity of COVID-19 patients. However, neutrophils, basophils, haemoglobin, and platelets were not correlated significantly. Latar Belakang: COVID-19 menginfeksi semua pasien dari segala usia termasuk lansia. Beberapa studi menunjukkan bahwa pemeriksaan darah lengkap dapat dipergunakan sebagai penanda derajat keparahan COVID-19. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengevaluasi pemeriksaan darah lengkap dengan derajat keparahan COVID-19 pada pasien lansia di Rumah Sakit Umum Daerah (RSUD) Tabanan tahun 2021. Metode: Penelitian ini dilakukan dengan metode studi retrospektif menggunakan 277 sampel yang diambil dari data sekunder rekam medis pasien di RSUD Tabanan. Variabel independen penelitian meliputi hemoglobin, hematokrit, leukosit, kadar limfosit relatif, kadar neutrofil relatif, neutrofil limfosit ratio (NLR), kadar eosinofil relatif, kadar basofil relatif, kadar monosit relatif, trombosit, dan dependent derajat keparahan pasien yaitu sedang, berat, kritis. Analisis data memakai SPPS versi 26 untuk Windows. Results: Pemeriksaan darah lengkap menunjukkan hasil yang bermakna pada Limfosit (r2 = 0,069; p < 0,001), Monosit (r2 = 0,045; p < 0,001), Leukosit (r2 = 0,037; p = 0,001), NLR (r2 = 0,03; p = 0,004), Eosinofil (r2 = 0,022; p = 0,013), dan Hematokrit (r2 = 0,069; p = 0,022). Conclusion: Pada penelitian ini pemeriksaan darah lengkap (leukosit, NLR, hematokrit dengan korelasi positif, dan limfosit, eosinofil, monosit dengan korelasi nilai negatif) dapat digunakan sebagai prediktor untuk menilai derajat keparahan pasien COVID-19. Akan tetapi neutrofil, basofil, hemoglobin, dan trombosit tidak berkorelasi secara bermakna.

           of cellulitis cruris dextra et sinistra

    • Authors: Luh Gede Melia Puspita Sari, Ni Nengah Dwi Fatmawati, I Gusti Ayu Agung Praharsini, Marvin Giantoro
      Pages: 426 - 430
      Abstract: Background: Cellulitis is a skin infection involving the deep dermis and subcutaneous tissue, characterized by localized pain, swelling, tenderness, erythema, and warmth. The most common causes of cellulitis are group A streptococci and Staphylococcus aureus. Streptococcus agalactiae or the so-called group B Streptococcus can also cause cellulitis. This case report aims to evaluate the colonization of Citrobacter koseri and Streptococcus agalactiae in a case of cellulitis cruris dextra et sinistra. Case Presentation: A 53-year-old married woman presented to the outpatient clinic complaining of swelling and redness in her left and right legs since five days ago. At first, there was only a little redness around the calf, but it became wider and pain in that area. On examination, there were multiple erythematous macules, patches, and multiple erosional lesions, warm palpable and tender to palpation, and the diascopy test disappeared with pressure. Based on the wound culture results, isolated Citrobacter koseri and Streptococcus agalactiae bacteria were considered colonization. Both of these bacteria were less virulent. The patient was treated with systemic and topical antibiotics, analgesics, wound care management and elevated lower limbs. Conclusion: The diagnosis of cellulitis is based on history and physical examination. On examination of the wound culture of this case, Citrobacter koseri and Streptococcus agalactiae were found, considered as colonization. The patient showed clinical improvement at each observation after administration of antibiotics and wound care management. The patient's prognosis is dubious ad bonam.

  • Hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state in children: a case series

    • Authors: Leni Lukman, I Made Darma Yuda, I Made Arimbawa
      Pages: 431 - 435
      Abstract: Background: Hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state (HHS) is a life-threatening rare acute complication of diabetes mellitus (DM). The condition should be distinguished from diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) as the management differs significantly. HHS is classically associated with type 2 DM, but it has been increasingly reported in type I DM as well. The literature regarding HHS in children is still sparse. The management of HHS in children is extrapolated from the adult study. Cases: The first case was male 5 years old, and the second case was female 15 years old. Both cases were typed 1 DM patient. The first case was newly diagnosed. Both of the patients came with general weakness, mild dehydration, overly high blood sugar, normal blood pH, hypocalcemia, glucosuria and only mild ketonuria. In the second case develop, both patients were rehydrated, given insulin and discharged in 7-10 days without any sequelae. Conclusion: These case series emphasize the importance of recognizing HHS and differ it from DKA. These two cases prove that HHS is increasingly reported in children with clinical symptoms resembling DKA. It is also proven that with early diagnosis and correct management, children with HHS can be discharged home without any sequelae.

  • The role of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) inhibitor in steven
           johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis (SJS/TEN) management: a
           systematic review

    • Authors: Icasia Yuseli Kurnia
      Pages: 436 - 422
      Abstract: Background. Steven Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis are dermatologic emergencies with high mortality rates characterized by extensive skin involvement. TNF-α has a role in inducing the production of granulysin that enhances keratinocyte cell death. Thus, the use of TNF-α inhibitors such as etanercept and infliximab is promising to halt the disease progression. This systematic review aims to evaluate the efficacy of TNF-α inhibitor in SJS/TEN management. Method. A systematic review using an online database was conducted based on PRISMA guidelines. Inclusion criteria were studied about the role of TNF-α inhibitor in SJS/TEN management. The exclusion criteria were a letter to the editor, commentary report, review, meta-analysis, study not used humans as a study subject, not available in full text and not in English or Bahasa Indonesia. Result. Fourteen studies are included in this systematic review consisting of ten case reports, three cohort retrospective studies, and one randomized controlled trial. TNF-α inhibitors such as etanercept and infliximab are beneficial for SJS/TEN management because they accelerate skin healing time and re-epithelization, reduce in-hospital duration and mortality rate, and minimal complications and side effects. TNF-α inhibitors should be given quickly after the disease onset, and combination with other immunosuppressive agents should be avoided to prevent the excessive immunosuppressive effect. Conclusion. TNF-α inhibitors such as etanercept and infliximab promise therapy to halt SJS/TEN progression.

  • Botox injection for anal fissure management: case report

    • Authors: Gede Eka Rusdi Antara
      Pages: 443 - 445
      Abstract: Introduction: Anal fissure is shallow tear in the anoderm distal to dentate line which is considered most common proctologic condition.  Anal fissure is generally located in the posterior midline. The symptoms include anal pain, spasm, and/or bleeding during defecation1. The pain can be so intense as to induce the patient to avoid defecation with consequent hardening of the feces and exacerbation of the problem2. Management of the anal fissure is improving diet and defecation habit, medical therapy and surgical therapy. The goal of medical treatment for chronic anal fissure is to temporarily reduce pressure of the anal canal to facilitate the healing of the fissure (“reversible sphincterotomy”), thereby reducing muscle tone. Intrasphincteric Botulinum Toxin A injection seems to be a reliable option. Case reports: two male patients were diagnosed with anal fissures, the patients complained of pain and spasm. They were treated with  botulinum toxin type A (100 unit AllergenÒ), injected  into three sites of the internal sphincter at 2, 5 and 8 o’clock. The symptoms relieved and the anal fissure healed within one month. There was no sign of relapse or incontinence during 12 months of follow-up. Conclusion: Botulinum toxin therapy can be considered as efficacious, effective and safe treatment for anal fissures.   Keywords: anal fissure, botox, botulinum toxin, intrasphincteric

  • Validasi skor Coagulopathy of Severe Trauma (COAST) dalam memprediksi
           Acute Trauma Coagulopathy (ATC) di Rumah Sakit Umum Pusat Sanglah Denpasar

    • Authors: Putu Chandra Wibawa, I Gede Suwedagatha, I Wayan Niryana
      Pages: 446 - 451
      Abstract: Introduction: The Coagulopathy of Severe Trauma (COAST) score is a scoring system that predicts the clinical condition of ATC. The COAST score has a high specificity of 96% and a sensitivity of 80% at a cut-off 3, which can accurately predict coagulopathy and has a significant outcome. This study tested the validity of the Coagulopathy of Severe Trauma (COAST) scoring in predicting Acute Traumatic Coagulopathy (ATC) at the Sanglah Central General Hospital (RSUP) Denpasar. Method: Observational study with diagnostic test and cross-sectional design carried out from December 1, 2020 to February 28, 2021. Patients suspected of ATC are patients who present with a history of trauma with an increase of two out of three, namely, Prothrombin Time (PT) >18 seconds, Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) >36 seconds, and International Normalized Ratio (INR) >1.6. Samples were excluded if they refused to participate in the study, had severe head injury, concomitant severe systemic disease, had blood clotting disorders or were taking blood thinning drugs, burn patients, and pregnant patients. The COAST score was assessed based on the components of the trapped assessment, blood pressure, temperature, chest decompression, and abdominal/pelvic injury. COAST scores were analyzed using ROC curves and diagnostic tests, as well as logistic regression tests. The value of p <0.05 indicates a significant result. Results: This study involved 60 patients with 10 ATC positive patients and the remaining 50 ATC negative. Significant differences (p<0.05) on the incidence of ATC were found in the variables of age, ISS score, trapped, chest decompression, abdominal/pelvic injury, systolic blood pressure, PT, aPTT, INR, and COAST score. ROC curve analysis showed a COAST score with a cut-off value of 2.5 (60% sensitivity; 88% specificity; p=0.01; 95% CI 0.555-0.965). The results of the diagnostic test cut-off score of 2.5 COAST scores with an OR of 11.00 (p=0.003; 95% CI 2.392-50.589). Multivariate analysis of COAST scores with the incidence of ATC showed a significant relationship (p=0.002). Conclusion: The COAST score is a valid scoring system to predict ATC at Sanglah Hospital Denpasar with a good level of sensitivity and specificity, with a cut off of 2.5. Pendahuluan: Skor Coagulopathy of Severe Trauma (COAST) merupakan sistem skor yang memprediksi kondisi klinis ATC. Skor COAST memiliki spesifisitas tinggi 96% dan sensitifitas 80% pada cut-off ≥3, yang dapat secara tepat memprediksi koagulopati dan memiliki hasil yang secara signifikan. Penelitian ini menguji validitas skoring Coagulopathy of Severe Trauma (COAST) dalam memprediksi Acute Traumatic Coagulopathy (ATC) di Rumah Sakit Umum Pusat (RSUP) Sanglah Denpasar. Metode: Studi observasional dengan uji diagnostik dan desain cross-sectional yang dilaksanakan mulai 1 Desember 2020 sampai 28 Februari 2021. Pasien terduga ATC adalah pasien yang datang dengan riwayat trauma dengan peningkatan dua dari tiga yaitu, Prothrombin Time (PT) >18 detik, Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) >36 detik, dan International Normalized Ratio (INR) >1,6. Sampel dieksklusi apabila menolak keikutsertaan dalam penelitian, mengalami cedera kepala berat, penyakit sistemik berat bersamaan, menderita gangguan pembekuan darah atau mengonsumsi obat pengencer darah, pasien luka bakar, dan pasien hamil. Skor COAST dinilai berdasarkan komponen penilaian terjebak, tekanan darah, suhu, dekompresi dada, dan abdomen/pelvis injuri. Skor COAST dianalisis dengan kurva ROC dan uji diagnostik, serta uji regresi logistik. Nilai p<0,05 menunjukan hasil bermakna. Hasil: Penelitian ini melibatkan 60 pasien dengan 10 pasien ATC positif dan 50 sisanya ATC negatif. Perbedaan signifikan (p<0,05) terhadap kejadian ATC didapatkan pada variabel usia, skor ISS, terjebak, dekompresi dada, abdomen/pelvis injuri, tekanan darah sistolik, PT, aPTT, INR, dan skor COAST. Analisis kurva ROC menunjukan skor COAST dengan nilai cut-off 2,5 (sensitivitas 60%; spesifisitas 88%; p=0,01; CI95% 0,555-0,965).

      Abstract: Background: HIV-AIDS and sexually transmitted infections are still a public health burden in Indonesia. Women living with HIV have a higher risk of transmitting HIV, Syphilis, and Hepatitis B to their babies. While the effort to increase the services coverage for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) was detained due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of published studies that explore this, this study aimed to assess the determinant of service utilization for triple elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, Syphilis, and Hepatitis B among women living with HIV during COVID-19 pandemic in Indonesia. Methods: This cross-sectional study targeted women living with HIV in Indonesia who are planning to get pregnant. A simplified-snowball sampling technique was used in this study. A dependent variable in this study was the service utilization of PMTCT for HIV, Syphilis, and Hepatitis B. In contrast, the independent variables in this study consisted of demographic characteristics, perception according to Health Belief Model constructs, and stigma and discrimination experiences. Multiple logistic regression was used to find the determinants of service utilization. Results: Among 336 women living with HIV that were interviewed, only 28.27% (95% CI = 23.69 – 33.34) accessed the PMTCT services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the likelihood of PMTCT service utilization was decreased among the women living with HIV who perceived higher barriers (aOR = 0.56; 95% CI = 0.31 – 0.99) and experienced stigma and discrimination from partner (aOR = 0.50; 95% CI = 0.25 – 0.99). On the other hand, the PMTCT service utilization was increased among those who perceived less severity (aOR = 2.07; 95% CI = 1.21 – 3.54). No other factors were associated with the PMTCT service utilization among women living with HIV during the COVID-19 pandemic. Conclusion: The PMTCT service utilization was relatively low, increased by the higher perceived severity, and reduced among those who perceived higher barriers and experienced stigma and discrimination from the partner. Therefore, improving the knowledge about HIV, Syphilis, and Hepatitis B related to PMTCT services is essential, as well as providing social support to reduce the stigmas and discrimination among women living with HIV.

      Abstract: Introduction: Lacrimal gland tumors have 1: 1,000,000 cases per year, accounting for one-fourth of lesions that occupy the orbital space. The rarity of lacrimal gland tumors and the many types of tumors with various types of lesions make determining optimal treatment difficult. A myoepithelial tumor is a rare epithelial neoplasm of the lacrimal gland. This paper aims to report a good outcome case of myoepithelial carcinoma. Case Report: A 30-year-old male complained of protruding his left eye since 2014, accompanied by pain and clear white discharge. The vision was getting blurry and also double vision. Patients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) disease since 2013 on Anti Retro Viral (ARV) therapy. Right eye visual acuity was 6 / 7.5, and good eyeball examination. The left eye was 6/10 with no pinhole improvement, non-axial proptosis, and superolateral mass. The movement of his left eye was restricted. Other anterior and posterior segments were promising. The patient was diagnosed with pseudotumor and was given oral methylprednisolone. The eye condition is said to be getting better. The patient complained that the left eye was more prominent and protruding three years later, with blurred vision accompanied by infection. Left eye visual acuity becomes Light Perception Bad Projection with non-axial proptosis, retraction of palpebra and pus. Orbital exenteration was performed, and anatomical pathology examination revealed myoepithelial carcinoma of the lacrimal gland. The patient was planned for radiotherapy. Conclusion: These rare cases have made setting up a regimen in randomized controlled trials difficult. The rapid development of therapy gives more hope to treating patients with lacrimal gland tumors.

  • Lumbar spinal stenosis: pendekatan tatalaksana bedah

    • Authors: Kevin Giovani Mandua, Alvarez Zefanya Moningka
      Pages: 470 - 474
      Abstract: Background: Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is the most common subtype of spinal stenosis. This pathologic disorder is the most common cause of low back pain in elderly. LSS can be either congenital or acquired, which the disorder is mainly caused by the degenerative process. Diagnosis of LSS is made by combination of clinical manifestations and radiological findings. Management of LSS may include conservative measures in form of physical therapy, steroid injection on facet joints or epidural space, and also surgical decompression procedure. LSS often reduces invididuals’ quality of life and productivity; hence, it is the most common indication for lumbar spinal canal decompression procedure. Case report: A 41 years old woman complained of low back pain that was referred to the left buttock and leg area. The complaints were also accompanied by numbing sensation on the antero-lateral side of the left leg. Complaints have been felt continuously since 5 months ago. From physical examination, the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) was 5-6 with positive laseque test on left leg accompanied with hypoesthesia in L4, L5, and S1 dermatome. MRI findings suggested the diagnosis of canalis stenosis of L4-L5 and L5-S1. We perfomed laminectomy and Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) on this patient. Conclusion: Surgical approaches are based on the anatomic location, number of segment affected, involvement of thoracolumbar junction, transitional anatomy, instability, and deformity. Factors that affect patients’ clinical outcome after the surgical procedure should be considered before starting the procedure. Latar belakang: Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) merupakan jenis stenosis spinal yang paling sering dijumpai, dimana kelainan ini merupakan salah satu penyebab patologis tersering dari nyeri punggung bawah pada populasi lansia. LSS dapat berupa kelainan kongenital ataupun kelainan yang didapat, dimana kebanyakan LSS diakibatkan oleh proses degeneratif. Diagnosis LSS melibatkan kombinasi dari temuan klinis dan radiologis. Tatalaksana pasien LSS dapat meliputi upaya konservatif berupa terapi fisik, injeksi steroid pada persendian facet ataupun ruang epidural, hingga tindakan operasi dekompresi. LSS seringkali menurunkan kualitas hidup serta produktivitas seseorang, sehingga LSS sering dijadikan sebagai indikasi untuk dilakukan prosedur operasi medula spinalis lumbal. Laporan kasus: Wanita, 41 tahun mengeluh nyeri punggung bawah serta nyeri yang menjalar ke bokong dan tungkai kiri, yang disertai sensasi kebas pada tungkai kiri sisi antero-lateral. Keluhan dirasakan terus menerus sejak 5 bulan lalu. Pemeriksaan fisik di dapatkan Visual Analogue Scale (VAS): 5-6, tes laseque positif tungkai kiri serta hipoestesia pada dermatom L4, L5 dan S1. Temuan MRI lumbal mengarah kepada diagnosis stenosis kanalis L4-L5 dan L5-S1. Dilakukan laminektomi dan Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF). Kesimpulan: Pemilihan modalitas bedah didasarkan pada lokasi anatomis, jumlah segmen, keterlibatan thoracolumbar junction, adanya anatomi transisional, instabilitas, ataupun deformitas. Beberapa faktor yang mempengaruhi luaran klinis pasien pasca prosedur operasi perlu menjadi pertimbangan sebelum memulai tindakan bedah.

  • Infiltrative multifocal glioblastoma progression in a twelve-year-old boy
           after COVID-19 infection: a case report

    • Authors: Angky Saputra, Zaky Bajamal, Francisca Notopuro, Lucia Dwi Puspitasari
      Pages: 475 - 479
      Abstract: Background: Glioblastoma is one of the most malignant types of primary central nervous system tumors with a high recurrence rate and dismal prognosis. Multifocal glioblastoma has been shown to have a poorer prognosis than solitary glioblastoma. Cancer patients are at risk of contracting COVID-19. It is hypothesized that COVID-19 may induce glioma tumorigenesis via angiotensin enzyme 2 receptor. We reported a rare pediatric multifocal glioblastoma in a twelve-year-old boy complicated with COVID-19. Case Presentation: The patient was a twelve-year-old boy with a new-onset unprovoked seizure and headache. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a heterogeneous solid cystic mass in the left temporal region (2.1x2.1x2.8 cm) with an increased choline/creatinine ratio and choline/n-acetyl acetate aspartate (NAA) ratio suggestive for high-grade glioma. The patient was contracting COVID-19 shortly after the diagnosis of glioblastoma. Two weeks later, patients came with significant neurological deterioration, hemiparesis, headache, and vomiting. MRI showed an infiltrative mass in the temporal and parietal region (5.05x8.03x8.3 cm) with intratumoral hemorrhage, also causing midline shift deviation (11.9 mm). The patient underwent trepanation and total safe resection of the tumor. Histopathological findings showed neoplastic cells with abundant mitotic figures, necrotic foci and pseudopalisading necrosis. These findings confirmed the diagnosis of multifocal glioblastoma. Conclusion: Glioblastoma is a rare disease in the pediatric population with a poor prognosis due to its infiltrative nature and high recurrence rate. The patient had an acute deterioration of the neurological condition and rapid growth of the tumor after he contracted COVID-19, which may or may not be incidental. Further observation of similar cases will be required to determine the association between glioblastoma and COVID-19.

      Abstract: Background: Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is one of the leading causes of mortality, morbidity and physical disability worldwide. The chief treatment for AMI is primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). However, the effectiveness of early rehabilitation therapy after PCI patients still lacks documentation. Therefore, a meta-analysis has assessed the patient's outcome of early rehabilitation therapy after PCI. Methods: The searching protocol was carried out using several databases, such as PubMed, ScienceDirect, and Google Scholar, to identify relevant topics in June 2022. This study used the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis 2020 (PRISMA) guidelines. Result: There were nine studies included in this systematic review and meta-analysis. All of the reviewed studies were written in English. Most of the included studies were carried out in China. Most of the included studies were carried out in China. The mean age of the patient were all above 18 years. The total participants were 858 patients with PCI. There was a significant difference in 6-minute walk distance (MD = 85.64; 95% CI = 78.68–92.60; p < 0.01); left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) (MD = 5.97; 95% CI = 5.30–6.63; p < 0.01) and body mass index (BMI) score score (MD = 1.43; 95% CI = 0.86–2.00; p < 0.01) between groups in overall analysis. Conclusion: Early rehabilitation in patients with PCI has better outcomes (6-minutes walk distances, LVEF, and BMI score) than in the control group.

      Abstract: Introduction: Melasma is an acquired pigmentation disorder characterized by symmetrical hyperpigmented patches, most commonly seen on the face. Melasma and iron deficiency are most common in women of reproductive age. Iron deficiency causes a decrease in ferritin levels, which are iron stores in the body. The mechanism of iron deficiency causing melasma is thought to be due to cell hypoxia in the tissue involving mediators that increase melanogenesis. This study aims to prove that the mean ferritin level is lower in melasma than without melasma and that low ferritin levels are a risk factor for melasma in women. Methods: A case-control research included 28 participants with melasma and 28 without melasma who visited the dermatovenereology department of Prof. Dr. I.G.N.G Ngoerah Hospital, medical cosmetic division, in May-July 2022. The two groups will compare ferritin mean and ferritin risk factor analysis on the incidence of melasma. Data were tabulated and analyzed using SPSS 26. Results: The mean age in the melasma group was 40.64±3.39 years old, and the group without melasma was 37.64±3.50 years old (p=0.75). Of the 28 melasma subjects, there were more subjects with low ferritin levels (60.7%) than the group without melasma (32.1%). From the results of the Mann-Whitney test, the mean ferritin level in the melasma group (36.32±31.05) was significantly lower than in the non-melasma group (58.26±5.39); p=0.006. From the results of the Chi-Square test, it was found that low ferritin levels had a risk of 3.2 times the occurrence of melasma [OR (95% CI) = 3.2 (1.098-9.776), p=0.032]. Conclusion: The mean ferritin level in women with melasma is lower than in women without melasma, and low ferritin levels are a risk factor for melasma. Latar Belakang: Melasma merupakan kelainan pigmentasi didapat yang ditandai dengan adanya bercak hiperpigmentasi simetris, paling sering terlihat pada wajah. Melasma dan defisiensi besi paling sering dijumpai pada wanita usia reproduktif. Defisiensi besi menyebabkan turunnya kadar feritin yang merupakan cadangan besi dalam tubuh. Mekanisme defisiensi zat besi menyebabkan melasma diduga akibat hipoksia sel di dalam jaringan melibatkan mediator yang meningkatkan melanogenesis. Studi ini bertujuan untuk membuktikan rerata kadar feritin lebih rendah pada melasma dibandingkan tanpa melasma serta membuktikan kadar feritin yang rendah merupakan faktor risiko melasma pada wanita. Metode: Studi case-control yang melibatkan 28 subjek dengan melasma dan 28 subjek tanpa melasma yang berobat ke poliklinik kulit dan kelamin RSUP Prof. Dr. I.G.N.G Ngoerah divisi kosmetik medik periode Mei-Juli 2022. Kedua kelompok akan dibandingkan rerata feritin dan analisis faktor risiko feritin terhadap kejadian melasma. Data ditabulasi dan dianalisis dengan menggunakan SPSS 26. Hasil: Rerata usia pada kelompok melasma 40.64±3,39 tahun dan kelompok tanpa melasma 37,64±3,50 tahun (p=0,75). Dari 28 subjek melasma, didapatkan lebih banyak subjek dengan kadar feritin rendah (60,7%) dibandingkan kelompok tanpa melasma (32,1%). Dari hasil uji Mann-Whitney didapatkan rerata kadar feritin pada kelompok melasma (36,32±31,05) lebih rendah secara signifikan dibandingkan pada kelompok bukan melasma (58,26±5,39); p=0,006. Dari hasil uji Chi-Square didapatkan kadar feritin yang rendah memiliki risiko sebesar 3,2 kali terjadinya melasma [OR (IK 95%) =3,2 (1,098-9,776), p=0,032]. Simpulan: rerata kadar feritin pada wanita dengan melasma lebih rendah dibandingkan wanita tanpa melasma dan kadar feritin yang rendah merupakan faktor risiko melasma.

      Abstract: Background: Diabetes Mellitus Type-2 (DM2) is a disease that can cause various complications, one of the common complications is diabetic foot, especially in osteomyelitis patients. Several parameters are known to contribute to the occurrence of diabetic foot such as ESR and C-Reactive Protein (CRP). This study aims to evaluate the relationship between ESR and CRP levels as a predictor value in the diagnosis of osteomyelitis with foot infection in DM2 patients. Methods: This study is a diagnostic study with cross-sectional data collection techniques on 67 patient medical records from the Department of Surgery, Dr. RSUP. Wahidin Sudirohusodho consecutively during the period from June to October 2020. The variables assessed in this study included age, gender, Body Mass Index (BMI), comorbidities, duration of diabetes, HbA1c, ESR, C-Reactive Protein (CRP), and osteomyelitis. Data were analyzed with SPSS version 20 for Windows. Results: There was a significant difference in ESR levels (96.00 (79.00-115.00) vs. 67.50 (22.00-88.00 mm/hour; p=0.000), procalcitonin (16.04 (0.05) -42.03 vs. 30.17 (0.21-56.08) ng/mL; p=0.003), and female gender (72.00% vs. 28.00%; p=0.022) in both the osteomyelitis group and non-osteomyelitis. From the ROC curve analysis, the parameters with significant results were ESR (Cut-Off: 83.75 mm/hour; p=0.000) and procalcitonin (Cut-Off: 19.72 ng/mL; p=0.003) in the diagnosis of osteomyelitis in DM2 patients. Conclusion: There is a significant difference in terms of ESR values ​​and procalcitonin levels between the group of T2DM patients with osteomyelitis and without osteomyelitis. Of the three inflammatory marker parameters, namely CRP, ESR and procalcitonin, the ESR value is known to have the highest accuracy as a predictor of osteomyelitis. Latar Belakang: Diabetes Mellitus Tipe-2 (DM2) merupakan penyakit yang dapat menimbulkan berbagai macam komplikasi, salah satu komplikasi yang umum terjadi adalah kaki diabetes khususnya pada pasien osteomielitis. Beberapa parameter diketahui berkontribusi terhadap terjadinya kaki diabetes seperti Laju Endap Darah (LED) maupun C-Reactive Protein (CRP). Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengevaluasi hubungan kadar LED dan CRP sebagai nilai prediktor dalam diagnosis osteomielitis dengan infeksi kaki pasien DM2 Metode: Penelitian ini merupakan penelitian diagnostik dengan teknik pengambilan data potong lintang terhadap 67 rekam medis pasien dari Departemen Ilmu Bedah RSUP Dr. Wahidin Sudirohusodho secara konsekutif selama periode Juni hingga Oktober 2020. Variabel yang dinilai pada penelitian ini meliputi usia, jenis kelamin, Indeks Massa Tubuh (IMT), komorbiditas, durasi menderita diabetes, HbA1c, Laju Endap Darah (LED), C-Reaktif Protein (CRP), dan osteomielitis. Data dianalisis dengan SPSS versi 20 untuk Windows. Hasil: Terdapat perbedaan bermakna kadar LED (96,00 (79,00-115,00) vs 67,50 (22,00-88,00 mm/jam; p=0,000), prokalsitonin (16,04 (0,05-42,03 vs 30,17 (0,21-56,08) ng/mL; p=0,003), dan jenis kelamin perempuan (72,00% vs 28,00%; p=0,022) baik pada kelompok osteomielitis dan non-osteomielitis. Dari hasil analisis kurva ROC didapatkan parameter dengan hasil bermakna adalah LED (Cut-Off: 83,75 mm/jam; p=0,000) dan prokalsitonin (Cut-Off: 19,72 ng/mL; p=0,003) dalam penegakakan diagnosis osteomielitis pada pasien DM2. Kesimpulan: Terdapat perbedaan yang bermakna dari segi nilai LED dan kadar prokalsitonin antara kelompok pasien DMT2 dengan osteomielitis dan tanpa osteomielitis.

      Pages: 507 - 510
      Abstract: Burn-related morbidity and mortality are usually caused by secondary infection and long healing time. In these circumstances, the use of products that can accelerate and enhance the wound healing process is urgently needed. One breakthrough in wound healing therapy is platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Platelet-rich plasma is autologous plasma with a platelet concentration above the normal value. This study is a literature review aiming to describe the role of PRP in burn wound healing. PRP has various mechanisms in burn wound healing, such as increasing hemostasis, releasing growth factors, reepithelialization, inducing fibroblast proliferation in the extracellular matrix, and promoting angiogenesis which increases the rate of wound healing. In addition, it also has an antimicrobials effect. Previous studies have been done in animal models and humans to prove the efficacy of PRP in burn wound healing. Most studies have revealed that PRP can accelerate wound healing time and increase the quality of wound healing. So, using PRP in burns can be very useful for patients to reduce burn morbidity and mortality.

      Abstract: Background: Asphyxia is one of the three main causes of newborn death. In Indonesia, the neonatal mortality rate (AKN) in 2018 was 15-20% due to asphyxia with several risk factors including maternal age, anemia, number of previous deliveries, history of hypertension, premature rupture of membranes, prematurity, and method of delivery. This study aims to evaluate the risk factors associated with asphyxia in neonates at RSIA Dedari Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Methods: The research design is an observational analytic study with a case-control design. This study consisted of 40 case samples and 40 control samples. Sampling was from January 2020 - December 2021 in the maternity ward and perinatology room at RSIA Dedari Kupang with a total sampling technique in the case group and a random sampling technique in the control group. The sample used has met the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Data were analyzed univariate and bivariate using SPSS version 23.0 for Windows. Results: There was a significant relationship between premature rupture of membranes and prematurity on the incidence of neonatal asphyxia in bivariate analysis (p<0.05). In addition, there was also a significant relationship between a history of hypertension and asphyxia with logistic regression analysis (p<0.05). Conclusion: There is a significant relationship between premature rupture of membranes, prematurity and hypertension in pregnancy with the incidence of asphyxia in neonates.

    • Authors: Moses Wijaya, I Wayan Widana
      Pages: 516 - 519
      Abstract: Background: Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is a lateral curvature of the spine with a bulge angle of at least 10°, with no underlying neuromuscular or congenital abnormality. Surgery is the best treatment for patients with AIS. The main goal of AIS surgery is to prevent progression due to fusion, but there are various potential risks, such as the postoperative period. Case: The patient was a 26-year-old female patient with complaints of an misaligned spine. The patient was diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and planned for scoliosis deformity correction. The X-ray shows a thoracic curve with convexity to the right (7th thoracic vertebrae – 1st lumbar vertebra), Cobb angle 54 degrees, right Cobb bending angle 34 degrees, flexibility 20 degrees, left Cobb bending angle 70 degrees, flexibility 26 degrees. The operation was performed using the general anesthesia-orotracheal tube (GA-OTT) technique. After induction, the patient was placed in the prone position. Maintenance of anesthesia with O2, N2O, dexmetomidine, intermittent fentanyl, and rocuronium. The operation lasted for 6 hours, the bleeding during the operation was 1000 ml and was hemodynamically stable. Post-operatively the patient is well conscious and adequate spontaneous breathing. Patient care is carried out in the ICU with the administration of analgesics. Conclusion: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is an exception diagnosis from other forms of scoliosis. An approach to find out the causes, risk factors, methods of diagnosis and treatment of patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis are needed in order to increase the success of therapy and the quality of life of the patients. Latar Belakang: Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) adalah kelengkungan lateral tulang belakang dengan sudut tonjolan minimal 10°, tanpa kelainan neuromuskular atau bawaan yang mendasarinya. Pembedahan adalah pengobatan terbaik untuk pasien dengan AIS. Tujuan utama operasi AIS adalah untuk mencegah perkembangan akibat fusi, tetapi ada berbagai potensi risiko, seperti periode pasca operasi. Laporan Kasus: Pasien wanita berusia 26 tahun dengan keluhan bentuk tulang belakang yang tidak lurus. Pasien didiagnosis dengan adolescent idiopathic scoliosis dan direncanakan untuk scoliosis deformity correction. Pada rongent tampak curve thoracalis dengan konveksitas ke kanan (vertebra thorakalis 7 – vertebra lumbal 1), sudut Cobb 54 derajat, sudut Cobb Bending kanan 34 derajat, flexibilitas 20 derajat, sudut Cobb Bending kiri 70 derajat, flexibilitas 26 derajat. Operasi dilakukan dengan teknik anestesi general anesthesia-orotracheal tube (GA-OTT). Setelah dilakukan induksi, pasien diatur ke posisi prone.

    • Authors: I Dewa Made Rendy Sanjaya, I Gusti Nyoman Darmaputra, Ketut Kwartantaya Winaya, I Gusti Ayu Agung Elis Indira, Herman Saputra
      Pages: 520 - 523
      Abstract: Introduction: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a malignant neoplasm originating from non-keratinized cells. The incidence increases worldwide and one of the triggering factors is excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. The therapy aims to eradicate the tumor and maintain optimal organ function and cosmetic results after the procedure, one of which is the excision technique accompanied by an island pedicle flap. Case Description: A man, 67 years old, came with a complaint of a black lump on the left cheek accompanied by a wound that did not heal. Based on the history, physical examination, and investigations, the patient was diagnosed with mixed type BCC. Excision and wound closure were performed with the island pedicle flap technique. Conclusion: The treatment chosen in this case is surgical excision and island pedicle flap. Although the wound healing is classified as good, the prognosis of the patient is dubius. Considering the location of the lesion and the histopathological results showing an aggressive tumor with a tendency to metastasize, the patient is advised to take precautions. Pendahuluan: Karsinoma sel basal (KSB) adalah neoplasma ganas yang berasal dari sel non keratin. Terjadi peningkatan insiden KSB di seluruh dunia dan salah satu faktor pencetusnya adalah paparan sinar ultraviolet (UV) berlebih. Terapi yang dilakukan bertujuan untuk mengeradikasi tumor serta tetap mempertahankan fungsi organ dan hasil kosmetik yang optimal paska tindakan, salah satunya dalah dengan teknik eksisi yang disertai island pedicle flap. Deskripsi kasus: Seorang laki-laki, usia 67 tahun, datang dengan keluhan benjolan kehitaman pada pipi kiri yang disertai luka yang tidak kunjung sembuh di atas benjolan. Berdasarkan anamnesis, pemeriksaan fisik dan penunjang, pasien terdiagnosis KSB tipe campuran. Dilakukan tindakan eksisi dan penutupan luka dengan teknik island pedicle flap. Simpulan: Tatalaksana yang dipilih pada kasus ini adalah pembedahan eksisi serta island pedicle flap. Meskipun penyembuhan luka tergolong baik, namun prognosis pasien dubius. Mengingat lokasi lesi dan hasil histopatologi yang menunjukkan tumor agresif yang memiliki kecenderungan metastase, pasien disarankan untuk melakukan pencegahan.

  • Resection of a mature giant teratoma with clamshell incision thoracotomy
           approach: Case report and literature review

    • Authors: Adhyasta Nata Prawira Subianto, Maz Isa Ansyori Arsatt
      Pages: 530 - 533
      Abstract: Introduction: Resection of giant teratomas can be challenging. An advanced surgical technique should be designed to ensure surgical safety and complete removal of giant teratomas. We describe a case of a mature giant teratoma successfully resected with a clamshell incision thoracotomy approach. Case Description: A female, 11 years complained of shortness of breath for the last two weeks before being admitted to the hospital. Physical examination revealed a retraction of the patient's chest wall, decreased breath sounds in the left lung field, and dull percussion in the left lung field. Chest CT scan with contrast was carried out with a minimal right pleural effusion with mediastinal mass size 14 x 17 x 16 cm. The patient underwent surgery to extract the mediastinal mass; an anterior thoracotomy was performed using the Clamshell incision method on the patient's chest. Complete resection of the mass was performed. Histopathology examination was performed on the mass with the results in accordance with the description of Mature Cystic Teratoma. The patient returned home in good condition and then controlled through the outpatient polyclinic. Discussion: Clamshell incisions provide enough exposure for tumors in the mediastinum that extend into the thoracic cavity. For complete removal of a gigantic teratoma, extensive surgical and visual fields are required, as in this case. Conclusion: Clamshell incisions in anterior thoracotomy give a good surgical field and can be safely performed in patients with large mediastinal teratomas.

  • Conjungtival autograft menggunakan fiksasi autologus pada kasus pterigium:
           laporan kasus

    • Authors: Raymond Tanjung, Melvin Manuel Philips, Rizky Magnadi
      Pages: 534 - 537
      Abstract: Background: Pterygium is a growth disorder of fibrovascular tissue from the white part of the eye towards the cornea. Surgery is the main treatment option at this time. Several surgical techniques have been developed and can be performed to treat pterygium cases, one of which is conjunctival autograft. This surgical technique is performed by excising the pterygium tissue and then taking healthy conjunctival tissue to close the excision of the pterygium. Autologous is one way of attaching healthy conjunctival grafts to the site of pterygium excision. This case report aims to evaluate conjunctival autograft using autologous fixation in pterygium cases. Case Description: A 50-year-old woman working as a housewife came to the eye clinic complaining of pain in the patient's left eye accompanied by itching, red eyes, and watering. Complaints have been felt for about 1 week. The patient also complained about the appearance of a white spot that was felt to be getting bigger in his left eye. Ophthalmological examination of the anterior segment of the left eye revealed a reddish-white tissue arising from the conjunctiva through the limbus but not yet reaching the center of the cornea. The patient has been diagnosed with stage 3 pterygium and is planned to perform autologous conjunctival autograft surgery on the patient. Conclusion: Conjunctival autograft surgery using autologous fixation is an option for surgery in pterygium cases. The results obtained after this operation are satisfactory, but the patient is still informed about possible complications or recurrences. Latar Belakang: Pterigium merupakan sebuah kelainan pertumbuhan jaringan fibrovaskular dari bagian putih mata mengarah kearah kornea. Tindakan operasi merupakan pilihan terapi utama saat ini. Beberapa teknik operasi telah berkembang dan dapat dilakukan untuk menangani kasus pterigium, salah satunya adalah conjungtival autograft. Teknik operasi ini dilakukan dengan mengeksisi jaringan pterigium lalu mengambil jaringan konjungtiva yang sehat untuk menutup bekas eksisi pterigium. Autologus merupakan salah satu cara untuk merekatkan cangkuk konjungtiva sehat di tempat eksisi pterigium. Laporan kasus ini bertujuan untuk mengevaluasi conjungtival autograft menggunakan fiksasi autologus pada kasus pterygium. Deskripsi Kasus: Seorang wanita berusia 50 tahun, bekerja sebagai ibu rumah tangga datang ke poliklinik mata dengan keluhan rasa perih di mata kiri pasien dan disertai dengan rasa gatal, mata merah, serta berair. Keluhan dirasakan sejak kurang lebih 1 minggu. Pasien juga mengeluhkan muncul bercak putih yang dirasa makin membesar di mata kirinya. Pemeriksaan oftalmologi segmen anterior mata kiri didapatkan sebuah jaringan berwarna putih kemerahan yang timbul dari arah konjugtiva melewati limbus tetapi belum sampai ke tengah kornea. Pasien didiagnosis dengan pterigium stadium 3 dan direncanakan untuk dilakukan operasi conjungtival autograft dengan autologus kepada pasien tersebut. Kesimpulan: Teknik operasi conjungtival autograft dengan menggunakan fiksasi autologus merupakan salah satu pilihan operasi pada kasus pterigium. Hasil yang didapat setelah operasi ini cukup memuaskan, tetapi pasien tetap diinformasikan tentang kemungkinan komplikasi ataupun kekambuhan yang dapat terjadi.
