Abstract: Background: Variations of Renal Artery are common and very important as knowledge of these variations has grown in importance with the increasing numbers of renal transplants, vascular reconstructions, various radiologic and surgical and techniques to avoid vascular injuries.
Aim of Study: The present study aimed to describe the frequency of the anatomical variations in renal arteries and their branching pattern among the patients in Aswan University hospitals, using Computed Tomography Angiography. Patients and Methods: In this retrospective cross sectional study 106 patients were included (53 male and 53 female) (212 kidneys) who were referred to the radiology department-Aswan university hospital and underwent abdominal MDCT angiography. The images were analyzed and evaluated for the presence of multiple renal arteries and pre-hilar branching......

Abstract: Aims: To assess and compare the management of loculated effusions in patients by ultrasonography (usg) guided simple thoracocentesis and by intrapleural urokinase instillation through intercostal drain and to study the residual pleural thickening by radiological follow up in the study sample. Patients and methods: A total of 34 patients were observed of which 30 patients were included in the study. They were allocated in to two groups of which one group received intrapleural urokinase (n = 15) and the other was treated by usg guided thoracocentesis of pleural fluid in the locules (n = 15). The urokinase (1,00,000 IU) was administered into the pleural cavity per day for 5 days......

Abstract: Diseases caused by Entamoeba histolytica manifest an acute infectious diarrhea clinically and pathologically as ulcerative and inflammatory lesion in the caecum and the entire colon . The organism during the invasive stage gains access to the liver via the portal vein where marked tissue destruction occurs resulting in a liver abscess [2-7]. In India, due to poor sanitary condition and a lower socioeconomic status, amoebiasis is endemic and amoebic liver abscess accounts for 3-9% of all cases of amoebiasis . Patients with amoebic liver abscess manifest early with abdominal pain and fever or as fever of unknown origin, weight loss and abdominal pain . Coexisting diarrhea occurs in......

Abstract: Objectives: To evaluate and compare the remineralization potential of living two types of bacteria probiotic and casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate with fluoride (CPP-ACPF)on in vitro incipient enamel lesion and the stable of remineralization produced by this agent when subjected to demineralizing solution immediately and after three months. Methods: Six specimens sounds, freshly extracted bovine central incisor teeth were used in the study. Each tooth of the six specimens incorporated four windows (5×5 mm) one of which will be a control (sound enamel), the remaining three windows were contain......

Abstract: Background;Manget, is credited to have coined the term "military TB" in 1700. Miliary TB is a fatal form of disseminated TB that results from a massive lymphohematogenous dissemination from a mycobacterium tuberculosis-laden focus. Radiologically, the miliary pattern has been defined as "a collection of tiny discrete pulmonary opacities that are generally uniform in size and widespread in distribution, each of which measures 2 mm or less in diameter. Tuberculosis (TB) persists as a global public health problem of serious magnitude requiring urgent attention. India accounts for one fourth of global burden. Global incidence of tuberculosis is 10.0 million(9.0-11.3) million. Globally, there were 1.2 million......

Abstract: Background: More than 6% of elderly patients will develop severe acute cholecystitis. Case presentation: We report a 91-year old male who appeared in the emergency department with diffuse abdominal pain associated with fever and vomiting. Clinical examination, laboratory tests, and imaging modalities confirmed the diagnosis of grade III acute cholecystitis. A percutaneous cholecystostomy under ultrasound guidance was performed. However, after seven days, the patient's condition aggravated, and soon he became septic. Due to the patient's poor general condition and comorbidity, an open cholecystostomy under local anesthesia was carried out.......
