A Practical Guide on Surgical Techniques in Functional Neurosurgery

The latest breakthroughs in functional neurosurgery surgical procedures are described in this book. We outline how we approach treating certain disorders. The use and integration of neuro-monitoring techniques in brain tumour surgery, the surgical technique for performing frameless deep brain stimulation, epilepsy surgery principles, indications, and surgical techniques, neuronavigated microvascular decompression for the treatment of […]

Effect of Mandibular Advancement Splint in Edentulous Class II OSA Patients

The goal of this chapter is to assess changes in upper airway volume and sleep characteristics in edentulous class II OSA patients treated with a mandibular advancement splint (MAS) constructed at various jaw locations. Thirty-five patients were chosen at random and divided into two groups based on inclusion and exclusion criteria, Group I and Group […]

A Theoretical Assumption of Atrial Fibrillation

The most common cardiac arrhythmia in clinical practise is atrial fibrillation (AF). Many research have been conducted to determine what causes AF to develop, but the issue has yet to be resolved. Based on the cessation of atrial mechanical systole, atrial fibrillation has lately been hypothesised as a protective physiological mechanism. In pathological conditions, this […]

Evaluating the Effects of 24-Week Intervention with High-Concentration Hydrogen-Rich Water on Body Composition, Blood Lipid Profiles and Inflammation Biomarkers in Individuals with Metabolic Syndrome

The researchers want to see how HRW affects blood lipids, inflammation, oxidative stress, and glucose levels, as well as phenotypic alterations like body mass and waist-to-hip ratio. Molecular hydrogen (H2) has been shown to alleviate chronic inflammation, minimise oxidative stress, and enhance cellular function. Although preclinical and clinical research have demonstrated that H2-rich water (HRW) […]

Comparative Short-Term Results of Open versus Closed Techniques: An Approach towards Internal Lateral Sphincterotomy in Yaoundé

The goal of this research was to compare the short- and medium-term outcomes of open and closed internal lateral sphincterotomies. Over a 15-month period, we conducted a prospective randomised comparative research in the Central Hospital of Yaounde’s digestive and visceral surgery departments. Patients were evaluated for each technique based on a variety of criteria, including […]

Hearing Assessment of Medical Equipment for Health Facilities in Cameroon

The COVID-19 outbreak gives Sub-Saharan African countries a chance to reconsider their foreign affiliations and national goals. Having raw stuff isn’t going to help you advance. Only local industry is capable of doing so. They must provide favourable conditions for the growth of local firms in all disciplines, especially in the food and health industries, […]

Primary Hyperparathyroidism and Hyperthyroidism Associated with Myotonic Dystrophy: A Review of the Literature

Background: Primary hypogonadism, diabetes mellitus, and thyroid and parathyroid dysfunction are all typical endocrine symptoms in myotonic dystrophy (MD). The goal of this study is to provide a rare case of primary hyperparathyroidism and hyperthyroidism associated with MD, as well as to assess its significance through a literature review. We describe a 46-year-old mother with […]

Spinal Cord Ependymoma Presenting as Recurrent Pain Abdomen in a Child with Post-operative Follow UP

Spinal cord ependymomas are the second most common tumour of the spinal cord in children. Intramedullary tumours must be found as soon as possible to avoid neurological complications. The most important aspects are epidemiology and overall survival characteristics. We discuss the case of a 14-year-old kid who was evaluated for an eight-month history of stomach […]

Stiff Person Syndrome: A Case Report and Review

The case centres on a 26-year-old male patient who was admitted to the General Medicine ward for a non-life-threatening ailment. In the previous three days, this patient had had excruciating spasms and stiffness in both legs. The patient was unable to stand up without difficulty as a result of this complaint, and as a result, […]

A Case Report on Parathyroid Adenoma

The endocrine disease primary hyperparathyroidism impacts calcium metabolism. Primary hyperparathyroidism is defined by high serum calcium concentrations, high parathyroid hormone concentrations, or inappropriate parathyroid hormone levels for serum calcium values. Primary hyperparathyroidism affects 2.5 out of every 1000 persons in India. Primary hyperparathyroidism can be caused by a noncancerous parathyroid adenoma, hyperplasia, or, in rare […]
