The purpose is to assess the value of computed and magnetic resonance tomography in diagnosis of recurrent juvenile angiofibroma, to determine its cause and to make a decision about additional surgical intervention. Above-mentioned imaging methods allow to reveal recurrent juvenile angiofibroma growth in different places of maxilla-facial and skull base regions. These methods allow to determine a tentative cause of failure during primary surgical intervention due to lack of visual control or to significant dimensions of the tumor and its expansions, one of which can be torn off during neoplasm mobilization. The fragment of neoplasm can remain unnoticed during final control examination especially in the conditions of profuse bleeding. One more reason – radiologists mistake in evaluation of angiofibroma spreading. On the basis of computed and magnetic resonance tomography it’s become possible to determine localization and dimensions of recurrent juvenile angiofibroma growth and to choose an optimal surgical approach for elimination of the process.
This study examines the role of orthodox and traditional health systems on the health seeking behaviour among people in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Data from a sample of 600 respondents indicate that, the efficacy of both Traditional and Orthodox Health Systems were significant predictors of health seeking behaviour. Thus, respondents’ perception and belief in a particular health system influenced their patronage to those health facilities. This calls for the provision of a more balanced and ‘culturally congruent’ health services that tend to serve the needs of patients. This will go a long way to enhance patients’ decision in seeking help from the appropriate health facility on time.
The efficacy of sanitization of the abdominal cavity with ozonized physiological solution under conditions of simulating experimental peritonitis has been examined. By the results of histological examination of the small and large intestinal walls reduced inflammatory process and destruction of the muscular layer in the form of focal moderately pronounced inflammatory infiltration were found. Condition of APUD system was estimated by the amount of APUD (amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation)-cells, found practically in all the glands. An average number of APUD-cells (142+20,4) was close to the control one (326+16,8), which is indicative of an increased functional activity of apudocytes under conditions of introduction of ozonized physiological solution.
