A prevalence study was carried out in order to look into the etiopathogenic relation of otitis media with effusion (OME) in primary school-age children. The study included ENT examination and a questionnaire that was carried out in 4 randomly selected schools on 1,165 children. 143 of the cases (12.2%) had OME. A significant relation between OME and adenoid vegetation was found (P<0.01) while no significant relation between EOM and recurrent tonsillitis and allergic rhinitis was found (P>0.05). As a result, OME is a common disease that can lead to other hard-to-cure health problems and be costly if etiopathogenic factors are not resolved on time. © Association of Otolaryngologists of India 2011.

Carotid and brachial artery intima-media thicknesses (IMT) determined using B-mode ultrasonography are validated surrogate markers of the severity and extent of coronary artery disease (CAD). The markers may also reflect the general vascular atherosclerotic involvement and cardiovascular risk in patients with normal coronary arteries (NCA). We aimed to investigate the relationship of carotid artery IMT (CIMT) and brachial artery IMT (BIMT) with CAD simultaneously, and also examined whether both markers represent cardiovascular risk determined by cardiovascular risk factors in patients with NCA.One hundred eligible patients who consecutively underwent coronary angiography under suspicion of CAD were included in this study. The patients were evaluated in terms of age, gender, and the risk factors for CAD, and their total cardiovascular risk was calculated. CIMT and BIMT measurements were performed by B-mode ultrasonography on all patients. The extent and severity of CAD were evaluated by the Gensini score, and the number of severely narrowed vessels was determined by coronary angiography.Sixty-three patients (47 males, 16 females) with a mean age of 6210years had CAD, and 37 patients (20 males, 17 females) with a mean age of 5111years had NCA on coronary angiography. The mean age and male ratio of patients with CAD were significantly higher as compared with the patients with NCA (p<0.001, p=0.035, respectively). The mean number of diseased vessels was 2.20.9 (median 2.0), while the mean Gensini score was 2531 (median 14.0). The CIMT and BIMT were higher in patients with CAD than in those with NCA (0.90.2 vs. 0.70.2mm and 0.50.1 vs. 0.40.1mm, respectively; p<0.001 for both). The cardiovascular risk score (CVRS) was also significantly higher in the CAD group (3.81.1 vs. 2.91.4, p<0.001). CIMT, BIMT, and CVRS were significantly correlated with the Gensini score and number of diseased vessels. For the sensitivity and the specificity of CIMT, BIMT, and CVRS to detect the presence of CAD, the areas under the ROC curve were 0.785 (95% CI 0.687-0.883, p=0.000), 0.842 (95% CI 0.764-0.920, p=0.000), and 0.721 (95% CI 0.591-0.813, p=0.001), respectively. When we compared the CVRSs between the groups, which were determined according to cutoff values for CIMT and BIMT (CIMT 0.9 vs. <0.9 and BIMT 0.4 vs. <0.4); among the patients with NCA, CVRSs were significantly different (3.50.5 vs. 2.71.4, p=0.035 and 3.71.1 and 2.71.3, p=0.073; respectively).The increases in both brachial and carotid IMT are positively correlated with the extent of CAD and the number of involved vessels, and have more predictive value for CAD than the traditional CVRS. In addition, carotid IMT is also related to high CVRS in patients with NCA, and this finding may represent general vascular involvement without coronary lesions determined by coronary angiography.

Objectives. Endothelial dysfunction is a well known risk factor for atherosclerosis. Uric acid levels are associated with endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis even if in physiological range. Xanthine oxidase inhibition with allopurinol decreases uric acid levels and oxidative stress and improves endothelial function. We have investigated the effect of high-dose and long-term allopurinol therapy on endothelial function in diabetic normotensive patients. Methods. This study is a randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Both treatment and placebo groups consisted of 50 patients. In the treatment group, daily oral 900 mg allopurinol was started after randomization and maintained for 12 weeks. Brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) and nitrate-induced dilatation (NID) were measured at baseline and after the allopurinol therapy to evaluate endothelial function. Results. HbA1c and uric acid levels decreased after allopurinol therapy (6.1 ± 2.1 vs 5.5 ± 1.0%, 5.0 ± 0.8 vs 3.3 ± 0.5 mg/dl, respectively, p = 0.01) but no change was observed in the placebo group (7.7 ± 1.9% vs 7.6 ± 2.0%, 5.3±2.1 vs 5.6 ± 0.8 mg/dl, respectively, p > 0.05). FMD and NID increased significantly in the treatment group (5.6 ± 2.1% vs 8.5 ± 1.2%, 10 ± 7.4% vs 14 ± 4.0%, 10 ± 7.4% vs 14 ± 4.0%, respectively, p = 0.01), whereas no change was observed in the placebo group (5.8 ± 1.8% vs 6.1 ± 0.8%, 12 ± 9.5 vs 10 ± 3.8%, respectively, p > 0.05). Conclusion. Long-term and high-dose allopurinol therapy significantly improved endothelial function in diabetic normotensive patients. In addition, allopurinol therapy contributes to the lower HbA1c levels. © 2011 Scandinavian Foundation for Cardiovascular Research.

Object: In this study, the prevalence of deliberate self-harm behavior and its association with sociodemographic features in patients referred to secondary care psychiatric clinic of adolescents and young adults was researched. Methods: Overall 300 patients, who successively referred to the secondary care clinic for adolescents and young adults in Bakirköy Research and Training Hospital for Psychiatry, Neurology and Neurosurgery throughout a month were evaluated by using a sociodemographic form, a deliberate self-harm and intent screening form, and those who were found to perform a deliberative self-harm, were assessed with a deliberative self-harm inventory. Results: The ratio of deliberate self-harm in all patients participated in the study was 50% (n=150). Behavior of deliberate self-harm was found to be 56.8% (n=129) in girls and 28.8% (n=21) in boys, and the difference was significant. The most frequent deliberate self-harm type was taking high dose pill (73.3%) in girls and body cutting in boys (66.7%). Discussion: In our study, in one of the two adolescents treated in psychiatry clinic, a deliberate self-harm behavior was observed and this was higher among girls than boys.

Objective: Several scales had been developed to evaluate upper extremity function in patients with cerebral palsy (CP). One of these scales is the Manual Ability Classification System (MACS) which evaluates the manual ability of children with CP in daily activities. MACS aims to assess the level of the child's usual performance, not to classify best capacitiy. Likewise, the Bimanual Fine Motor Function (BFMF) scale determines both hand functions together. In this study, we aimed to determine the relationship between CP severity and hand functions in children with CP. Materials and Methods: We included a total of 87 children with CP patients hospitalized in our CP unit. Hand functions were assessed with the MACS and the BFMF scales, whereas the CP severity was evaluated with the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS). Results: The mean of age of the patients was 6.93±1.93 (4 to 13) years. 40 children (46.0%) were diplegic, 3 (3.4%) - hemiplegic, 9 (10.3%) - tetraplegic, 9 - (10.3) ataxic - 5 (5.7%) - dyskinetic and 21patients (24.1%) were with mixed-type CP. A positive strong correlation was found between the BFMF ile the MACS. The patients were divided into two groups: group 1 consisted of patients with diplegic, hemiplegic and mixed CP, while group 2 included ataxic, dyskinetic and mixed CP. In both groups, a positive correlation was found either between the GMFCS and the MACS or between the GMFCS and the BFMF scales The patients were divided into two groups: group 1 consisted of patients with diplegic, hemiplegic and mixed CP, while group 2 included ataxic, dyskinetic and mixed CP. In both groups, a positive correlation was found either between the GMFCS and the MACS or between the GMFCS and the BFMF scales. On the other hand, in group 2 both the correlation between GMFCS and MACS and the correlation between GMFCS and BFMF were found to be stronger than that of Group 1. Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, in assessing the manual functions of CP children, the MACS and the BFMF are compatible scales with each other and with GMFCS as well. © Turkish Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Published by Galenos Publishing.

Objective To evaluate the widespread pain of patients with fibromyalgia syndrome [FMS] with neuropathic pain and to investigate the correlation between widespread pain and the functional status of patients.Methods The study comprised 173 female patients with FMS [mean age, 39.35±7.7 years; range: 2050 years]. The demographic data, widespread pain index [WPI], symptom severity scale [SSS], and complaint durations of the patients were recorded. Current pain intensity was determined using a visual analog scale for pain [VASp], functional status using the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire [FIQ], and pain characteristics using the McGill Pain Questionnaire [MPQ]. Neuropathic and nociceptive pains were differentiated using Leeds Assessment of Neuropathic Symptoms and Signs [LANSS].Results The patients reported different types of neuropathic pain: knife-stabbing pain 20.8 percent, burning pain 19.7 percent, and stinging pain 16.8 percent. 52.6 percent of patients showed a LANSS score of ≥12, while 47.4 percent showed <12. The former reported knife-stabbing pain most frequently [22 percent], whereas the latter reported burning pain most frequently [26.8 percent]. The FIQ and VASp scores showed a significant correlation [r0.557, P<0.05]. In contrast, the correlation between the LANSS and VASp scores was poor but significant [r0.266, P<0.05] and that between the FIQ and LANSS scores was very poor, but significant [r0.175, P<0.05].Conclusion Patients with FMS had high LANSS scores and diffuse neuropathic pain complaints. Their functional status was associated with pain severity. Their assessment for neuropathic pain could guide in the explanation of FMS aetiopathogenesis and in clinical practice. © 2012 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.
