Radiological Abnormalities and Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Patients with Sickle Cell Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.203
Pages: 
497–502
Synopsis: 
This study investigated the association of radiological abnormalities and asymptomatic bacteriuria in patients with sickle cell disease. No association was seen and there was no increased risk of symptomatic urinary tract infections in these patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) in sickle cell disease (SCD) in Jamaica is 5.3%. This study sought to determine the association between ASB and anatomical urological abnormalities and symptomatic urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Fractures in Jamaican Males with Prostate Cancer: A Retrospective Case Series

DOI: 
10.7727/WIMJ.2016.269
Synopsis: 
This retrospective case series reports on low rates of fractures in males on androgen deprivation for prostate cancer in Jamaica.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) reduces bone mineral density in men treated for prostate cancer. We sought to determine if there was an ethnic difference in fractures induced by ADT in Jamaican men.

Effect of Hydroxyurea on Priapism in Men with Sickle Cell Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.326
Pages: 
518–20
Synopsis: 
This report represents a retrospective case series of males with sickle cell disease who have recurrent episodes of ischaemic priapism and were being treated with hydroxyurea for other indications. We evaluated the changes in priapism episodes in these patients.

Obstetric Outcomes of an Afro-Caribbean Cohort Following Universal Screening and Treatment of Subclinical Hypothyroidism

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.275
Pages: 
78–82
Synopsis: 
This paper reports on obstetric outcomes of subjects, diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism, who were treated with l-thyroxine, and seeks to determine if these outcomes were equivalent to those of euthyroid subjects.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Restoration of euthyroidism with l-thyroxine reportedly reduces obstetric complications associated with subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH). The objective was to determine if obstetric outcomes of treated subjects were equivalent to euthyroid subjects.
