Being a predictor of worse prognosis, detection of EMVI is important to make decision regarding treatment options</p> <p><strong>Objective: </strong>To determine the diagnostic accuracy of pre-operative MRI in detecting extramural</p> <p>vascular invasion in patients with rectal cancer, taking histopathology as gold standard.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Materials &amp; Methods: </strong>Total 118 patients who did MRI in Kuwait Teaching Hospital Peshawar for Rectal carcinoma from Feb 2020 till March 2021 were included in the study. Patients were examined with 0.3 Tesla MRI machine using MRI sequences T2WI, T1WI, FLAIR and DWI. Post op specimens were sent in formalin for histopathological assessment. Data including MRI features and Histopathological findings were assessed with SPSS version 24.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>Our study included 118 rectal cancer patients, 55.1% (85) male and 44.9% (70) female. 31-</p> <p>100 in 10-year increases. 31-50 and 41-50 had 4 instances (3.4%). Twenty (16.9%) patients were</p> <p>between 51 and 60, 22 (18.6%) were between 61 and 70, 35 (29.7%) were between 71 and 80, 11</p> <p>(9.3%) were between 81 and 90, and 22 (18.6%) were between 91 and 100. MRI results found 57</p> <p>EMVI-positive and 61 negative individuals. 45 (38.1%) patients had EMVI, whereas 73 (61.9%) did not. Cross-tabulation was utilised to analyse MRI's sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV in diagnosing EMVI. MRI was 83.3% sensitive, 69% specific, 60% positive predictive, and 88.3% negative predictive. EMVI correlates with neoplastic mass.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Diagnostic accuracy, including sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value, is high using MRI to identify EMVI in rectal cancer.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Keywords: </strong>Carcinoma Rectum, Extramural Venous Invasion, MRI, Mesorectal Fascia.</p> <p> </p> 2022-10-06T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Pakistan journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research https://www.pjammr.com/index.php/pjammr/article/view/15 COVID-19, Developing Countries Inefficient Lockdown Policies Vs Door To Door Vaccination Campaign, What Should Be The Future Move? 2022-08-13T15:59:50+00:00 Anila Basit anilalrh@gmail.com Ittehad Ul Mulk ittehadulmulk@gmail.com Abid Ullah abid.ullah@lrh.edu.pk Muhmmand Bilal asgharnawaz81@gmail.com <p>Since the start, COVID-19 has had a wave pattern, fluctuating from surge to nearly touching the base on the graph. Managing a pandemic, that is highly contagious and viral in nature; SOPs and vaccination, were means of coping with such pandemic. But as vaccines had yet to be discovered when COVID-19 started, the only way to stop it was to impose a lockdown nationwide and practice strict SOPs to control virus spread. Since day one, the developing countries are finding it hard to make its subjects compliant with the lockdown protocols as declared by their governments</p> 2022-08-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Pakistan journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research https://www.pjammr.com/index.php/pjammr/article/view/10 A Tertiary Care Center's Conventional Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL) Complications Rate 2022-05-27T20:28:21+00:00 Sami ullah samuullah@yahoo.com MUHAMMAD ASIF drasif_15@yahoo.com NAVEED HAROON naveed.haroon@lrh.edu.pk IJAZ ALI ijazgul@yahoo.com AZARA GHANI azra.ghani@lrh.edu.pk <p><strong><span dir="ltr" role="presentation">INTRODUCTION:</span></strong><br role="presentation"><span dir="ltr" role="presentation">In A Tertiary Care Hospital, Monitor The Complication Rate Of Conventional Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL).</span><br role="presentation"><strong><span dir="ltr" role="presentation">MATERIALS AND METHODS:</span></strong><br role="presentation"><span dir="ltr" role="presentation">From January 2016 To January 2020, This Descriptive Research Was Carried Out In The Department Of Urology</span><br role="presentation"><span dir="ltr" role="presentation">At Lady Reading Hospital In Peshawar, Pakistan.

Early studies highlighted the endurance benefits of removing the GB, but few studies have evaluated the function of surgical intervention in treating Glioblastoma.</p> <p><strong>Objective:</strong> This study aims to evaluate the outcomes of glioblastoma patients' surgical resections.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> the research was carried out at &nbsp;MTI LRH Peshawar Hospital. To find 30 patients with progressing GB, records for everyone who had a glioblastoma biopsy or had it removed between January 2015 and January 2018 were identified and evaluated retrospectively. The median survival and 90% CI were derived by the Kaplan-Meier method. The multivariate analysis was conducted for age, Karnofsky score, amount of resection, tumor size, and tumor multifocality of survival following the advancement of the disease using the Cox Proportional Risks model.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong>&nbsp;Patients with advanced illnesses underwent the first known resection. Patients who had not yet had resections had median survival after progression of 10.6 months for them and 4.0 months for them. In multivariable analysis, surgical intervention and KPS 0.70 (HR 0.411) were associated with improved survival after GBM progression.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions:</strong> Operative intervention for progressing Glioblastoma is effective in treating the symptoms in the current maximum non-operative treatment, but the survival of the patients is restricted. More research is needed to determine if surgical surgery can lengthen post-progressive endurance in people with progressive GB.</p> 2022-07-22T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Pakistan journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research https://www.pjammr.com/index.php/pjammr/article/view/14 Anti-Glomerular Basement Membrane Antibody Disease With Normal Renal Function Was Discovered At The Miangul Abdul Haq Jahanzeb Kidney Hospital In Swat A Case Report Study. 2022-08-02T21:56:56+00:00 Rahmat Ali Khan rahmatalikhan@gmail.com Syed Munib munibsyed@gmail.com Mohammad Shahzad . shahzad@gmail.com Mufti Baleegh . muftiblg@yahoo.com Liaqat Ali . drliqatali_99@yahoo.com Mohammad Shahid . Mshahid@gmail.com <p><strong>Abstracts</strong></p> <p><strong> </strong><strong>Background</strong>: Autoantibodies against the 3-chain of type IV collagen in the GBM induce a rare autoimmune illness known as anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) antibody disease, which causes rapidly progressing glomerulonephritis.</p> <p><strong>Objective:</strong> Anti-GBM nephritis was the cause of hematuria and proteinuria in a 7-year-old child who was screened during a urine screening program at school. There were no abnormalities in her blood pressure or serum creatinine levels. Her hematuria and proteinuria lasted for many months, desp ite her best efforts. A percutaneous renal biopsy was conducted because a spot urine protein to creatinine ratio of roughly 7 g/g Cree was observed. For the whole GBM, immunofluorescent labelling revealed a linear pattern. X-rays of the chest came back normal. Immunoassays performed to check for anti-GBM antibodies returned slightly elevated, leading to the diagnosis of anti-GBM illness with normal renal function. An intravenous high-dose methylprednisolone infusion and cyclophosphamide were the primary treatments. The medication was fast successful, with an immediate drop in anti-GBM titers and proteinuria.</p> <p><strong> </strong><strong>Methods :</strong> From January 2021 to July 2021, the study was conducted in the department of nephrology at the Miangul Abdul Haq Jahanzeb Kidney Hospital after ethical clearance for hospital administration of this study.</p> <p><strong>Results :</strong>Anti-GBM illness in infants with intact renal function is very uncommon. For this reason, professionals must carefully pick an appropriate therapy for youngsters since the prognosis is grim.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion :</strong>As shown in Figures 1 to 3 things are true of anti-GBM illness. Anti-GBM illness was suspected even though her kidneys were in good shape. A VUR might have caused this with a bladder issue as a secondary condition source. As an anti-GBM medication, DFPP works well for those with normal renal function.</p> 2022-08-02T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Pakistan journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research
