Acute Complicated Sinusitis: Ten Years Experience from the University Hospital of the West Indies

Synopsis: 
Acute sinusitis has been associated with complications and has been seen most frequently in the adolescent male population. The most common complication is orbital. Surgical techniques have evolved from open sinus approaches to endoscopic approaches. Surgical treatment is indicated for those patients who fail medical management and should consist of an endoscopic approach which may be combined with open approaches if indicated.

Discrepancies between Clinical and Autopsy Diagnoses in the Emergency Department of the University Hospital of the West Indies

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.192
Pages: 
311–7
Synopsis: 
The discrepancy rate between the clinical and autopsy cause of death diagnoses was 36.8%. The high frequency of discrepant diagnoses among older age groups, combined with the diagnostic challenges in the Emergency Department related to time and patient co-morbidities, highlight the need to increase the autopsy rate.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To determine the cause of death diagnoses and the discrepancy rate between clinical and autopsy diagnoses in the Emergency Department (ED) of the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).

Acute Complicated Sinusitis: Ten Years Experience from the University Hospital of the West Indies

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.156
Pages: 
318–23
Synopsis: 
Acute sinusitis has been associated with complications and has been seen most frequently in the adolescent male population. The most common complication is orbital. Surgical techniques have evolved from open sinus approaches to endoscopic approaches. Surgical treatment is indicated for those patients who fail medical management and should consist of an endoscopic approach which may be combined with open approaches if indicated.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Complicated sinusitis is rare. It might not be identified early and might expose the patient to an unfavourable outcome. There is a paucity of data regarding this condition in the Caribbean. This study was undertaken to describe the clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes of patients admitted with this condition.

Adult Epistaxis, Epidemiology and Management at the University Hospital of The West Indies

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.007
Pages: 
100–04
Synopsis: 
Epistaxis is stated as one of the most common otolaryngology emergencies. Minor epistaxis originates from the anterior septum and is secondary to nose picking in children and dessication of the mucosa in adults from dry air. Major epistaxis lacks a precise definition but is characterised as being difficult for patients to control which results in a visit to the emergency department. There is a high prevalence of elevated blood pressure readings and hypertension among our patients with epistaxis. Most cases of epistaxis can be managed successfully with non-surgical treatment.

Effects of Tranexamic Acid on Death, Vascular Occlusive Events, and Blood Transfusion in Trauma Patients with Significant Haemorrhage (CRASH-2): A Randomised, Placebo-Controlled Trial

Issue: 
Pages: 
612–24
Synopsis: 
Tranexamic acid safely reduced the risk of death in bleeding trauma patients in this study. On the basis of these results, tranexamic acid should be considered for use in bleeding trauma patients.

ABSTRACT

Background: Tranexamic acid can reduce bleeding in patients undergoing elective surgery. We assessed the effects of early administration of a short course of tranexamic acid on death, vascular occlusive events, and the receipt of blood transfusion in trauma patients.

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.411
Synopsis: 
Life saving measures for acute myocardial infarction include reperfusion therapy. There have been international studies done looking at factors contributing to prehospital delay in patients with such an event. This study looks factors that contribute to delays in a Jamaican University hospital population.

ABSTRACT

Objective:  To determine the factors that affect time to hospital presentation in persons with symptoms suggestive of an acute myocardial infarction.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was done at the emergency department at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Kingston Jamaica. One hundred and fifty persons whopresented with symptoms suggestive of an AMI and were later diagnosed as such were analyzed.
