Endovascular Coil Occlusion of a Traumatic Pseudoaneurysm of the Posterior Cerebral Artery

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.609
Pages: 
Synopsis: 

A 51-year-old male developed traumatic pseudoaneurysms of the right and left posterior cerebral arteries following endoscopic resection of a pituitary adenoma. The right sided aneurysm resolved spontaneously but the left progressed in size. This was treated endovascularly, with successful embolization of the sac. This is the first report of this approach to management of a pseudoaneurysm of the posterior cerebral arteries to our knowledge.

Colorectal Cancer: Guidelines to Management

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2018.195
Pages: 
27–38

ABSTRACT

Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in Jamaica. Unique features may exist in this predominantly black population that impact management. Additionally, there is rationalization of some resources that may impose restrictions on the widespread applicability of some international guidelines. We have developed here guidelines that are consistent with the best available evidence and which are appropriate to use in our local context.

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).

Trends of Microcephaly and Severe Arthrogryposis in Three Urban Hospitals following the Zika, Chikungunya and Dengue Fever Epidemics of 2016 in Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.124
Pages: 
10–9
Synopsis: 
Newborns with the characteristics of congenital syndrome associated with Zika virus (CSAZ) are being born in urban hospitals after the 2016 Zika virus epidemic in Jamaica. Phenotypic features include microcephaly, craniofacial disproportion, neuro-imaging and neuro-pathological findings and arthrogryposis. A trend towards babies being delivered with small head circumferences, but not yet in the range of microcephaly and others with normal head sizes who were born to women who were symptomatic in pregnancy is also being observed. While, most babies with probable CSAZ are being born to asymptomatic women who did not report any symptoms related to arbovirus illness in pregnancy. Diagnosis is challenged by serological cross-reactivity between circulating flaviviruses. Team management is multidisciplinary to maximize the neuro-developmental potential of this vulnerable patient population.
ABSTRACT
 
Introduction: Jamaica experienced its maiden Zika virus (ZIKV) epidemic in 2016, while dengue (serotypes 3 and 4) and chikungunya were also circulating.
 
Aim: We describe initial trends in microcephaly and arthrogryposis observed by the clinicians from three urban birthing facilities during late 2016 to early 2017.

Profile of a Malignant Brain Tumour in Jamaica: An Eight-year Review, 2005 to 2012

Issue: 
DOI:

Pages:

Synopsis: 
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most malignant and the most common primary brain tumour worldwide. This initial study was undertaken in order to investigate the demographics of this very malignant tumour in our population using data from the recently started Intracranial Tumour Registry at the University Hospital of the West Indies.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant and most common primary brain tumour worldwide. This study was undertaken to investigate the demographics of this tumour in Jamaica as there is to date no such published data. Data from the recently started Intracranial Tumour Registry (ITR) at the University Hospital of the West Indies was used.

The Establishment of an Intracranial Tumour Registry at the University Hospital of the West Indies

Issue: 
Pages: 
254–7
Synopsis: 
A hospital-based intracranial tumour registry (ITR) was established at the University Hospital of the West Indies in March 2010. This paper reports on the challenges encountered in establishing the ITR as well as the initial findings. Recommendations have also been put forward which may be useful to other researchers planning to implement a registry.
