Descending Branch Of The Lateral Circumflex Femoral Artery - Arterial Genicular Anastomoses, Maher Sabalbal 2010 The University of Western Ontario

Descending Branch Of The Lateral Circumflex Femoral Artery - Arterial Genicular Anastomoses, Maher Sabalbal

Maher Sabalbal

Genicular collateral arterial circulation is required for perfusion of the lower leg should the superficial femoral artery (SFA) become obstructed by trauma or disease. When describing the anatomy, textbooks only provide a schematic representation of the genicular collateral circulation and suggest that the descending branch of the lateral circumflex artery (DBLCFA) plays a critical role. The DBLCFA may be removed for bypass and reconstructive surgeries; therefore, a sound anatomical description of this artery is essential. This study combines dissection with 3D reconstruction to describe the anatomy of the DBLCFA and to provide a morphological description of its involvement in the ...

Review: Community-Based Participatory Research Approach To Address Mental Health In Minority Populations, Mona Shattell, Jeanne Stacciarini, Maria Coady-Madden, Brenda Wiens

Mona Shattell

In this review, a synthesis of studies employing community-based participatory research (CBPR) to address mental health problems of minorities, strengths and challenges of the CBPR approach with minority populations are highlighted. Despite the fact that minority community members voiced a need for innovative approaches to address culturally unique issues, findings revealed that most researchers continued to use the traditional methods in which they were trained. Moreover, researchers continued to view mental health treatment from a health service perspective.

A Multicentre Matched Case Control Study Of Risk Factors For Preeclampsia In Healthy Women In Pakistan., Uzma Shamsi, Juanita Hatcher, Azra Shamsi, Nadeem Zuberi, Zeeshan Qadri, Sarah Saleem

Community Health Sciences

Background: Preeclampsia is one of the leading causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality world-wide. The risk for developing preeclampsia varies depending on the underlying mechanism. Because the disorder is heterogeneous, the pathogenesis can differ in women with various risk factors. Understanding these mechanisms of disease responsible for preeclampsia as well as risk assessment is still a major challenge. The aim of this study was to determine the risk factors associated with preeclampsia, in healthy women in maternity hospitals of Karachi and Rawalpindi. Methods: We conducted a hospital based matched case-control study to assess the factors associated with preeclampsia ...

Background: This randomized controlled trial aims to evaluate the effects of an early developmental intervention program on the development of young children in low-and low-middle-income countries who are at risk for neurodevelopmental disability because of birth asphyxia. A group of children without perinatal complications are evaluated in the same protocol to compare the effects of early developmental intervention in healthy infants in the same communities. Birth asphyxia is the leading specific cause of neonatal mortality in low-and low-middle-income countries and is also the main cause of neonatal and long-term morbidity including mental retardation, cerebral palsy, and other neurodevelopmental disorders. Mortality ...

A New Anti-Inflammatory Glucoside From Ficus Racemosa L., Rachel Li, David Leach, Stephen Myers, G Lin, Gregory Leach, Peter Waterman

David N Leach

Bioassay-guided fractionation of the ethanol extract of Ficus racemosa resulted in the identification of a new compound (rel)-4,6-dihydroxy-5-[3-methyl-(E)-propenoic acid-3-yl]-7-β-glucopyranosyl-{2α,3β-dihydrobenzofuran}-(3,2:b)-[4α,5β-dihydroxy-6α-hydroxymethyltetrahydropyran] (racemosic acid). Racemosic acid showed potent inhibitory activity against COX-1 and 5-LOX in vitro with IC50 values of 90 and 18 μM, respectively. Racemosic acid also demonstrated a strong antioxidant activity to scavenge ABTS free radical cations with an IC50 value of 19 μM. In addition, cytotoxic effects of the extracts of F. racemosa were investigated in vitro using the ATP-based luminescence assay and results showed no cytotoxicity ...
