Evaluation of Garlic-Lemon Therapy on Clinical and Angiographic Outcomes in Patients with High-risk Acute Coronary Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.572
Synopsis: 
We evaluated the effects of garlic-lemon therapy on atherosclerosis, wherein combination therapy provided only symptomatic benefits. Although no angiographic regression was observed in atherosclerotic plaques, it was found to be associated with a decrease in the need for early revascularization.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Several natural supplementations have been investigated over centuries for a wide variety of ailments. There is limited information available on the effect and safety of these natural supplementations on patients with high risk coronary artery disease. We aim to evaluate the results of garlic and lemon therapy via clinical and angiographic outcomes in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction.

Synopsis: 
Typhoid fever is a common and widely distributed food-borne disease that is a global major public health problem. This study was undertaken in order to determine the clinical and haematological presentation of typhoid fever in children.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Typhoid fever can involve various organs, leading to a wide range of presentations: from uncomplicated to complicated typhoid fever. The haematological changes are common in typhoid fever and include anaemia, leucopaenia, thrombocytopaenia and bleeding diathesis.

How Approprıate are the Lengths of Syringe Needles Used for Subcutaneous Injections to the Children of School Age?

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.229
Synopsis: 
Today, relatively smaller pen needles compared with those previously used are recommended for subcutaneous insulin therapy. Currently, the available shortest pen needles for subcutaneous injections is 4 mm in length, each. Even when the shortest pen needle is used, the risk for intramuscular injection during subcutaneous injection is 50% in boys aged 6–8 years, while it is 25% in those aged 9–12 years and 13–17 years for each. It is 25% in all the three age groups among the girls. Smaller pen needles can help to achieve more accurate subcutaneous injections.

ABSTRACT

Aims:  To define the normal ranges of the thicknesses of the skin and subcutaneous tissues via ultrasonography, and to determine whether the current syringe needle-lengths used for the subcutaneous injections were appropriate.

Methods: The thicknesses of the skin and subcutaneous tissues of 2244 studentswere measured at the left arm using ultrasonography. Patients were divided into three groups based on age: 6 to 8, 9 to 12 and 13 to 17 year.

ABSTRACT

Ewing's sarcoma is one of the most aggressive primary bone tumours.

Rhinolith is an uncommon nasal mass and a rare entity encountered in clinical practice. The typical
symptoms of rhinolith are unilateral nasal obstruction, foul smelling purulent nasal discharge and
epistaxis, crusting, swelling of nose or face, anosmia, epiphora and headache. In this report, we present
a case of recurrent rhinolith manifesting as an incidental finding on dental radiographs. A 26-year old
