Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common and best studied disorders among the group of functional gastrointestinal disorders. It is a functional bowel disorder in which abdominal pain or discomfort is associated with defecation or a change in bowel habit. Visceral hypersensitivity and increased GIT motility are the main patho-physiological mechanism for developing IBS. IBS present with diarrhea and constipation or both. Investigation is least needed for diagnosis of IBS rather done to exclude differential diagnosis...

Isolated CABG (coronary artery bypass grafting) has the lowest incidence of AKI (Acute Kidney Injury), followed by valvular surgery and then, combined CABG with valvular surgery. Due to the difference in baseline characteristics and in surgery type, the range of incidence is between 8.9 and 39% based on RIFLE (Risk Injury failure loss end stage kidney disease) or AKIN (Acute Kidney Injury Network) criteria. The advent of novel biomarkers of kidney injury has opened a new era of early detection and prognosis prediction for AKI...

Gliomatosis Cerebri is a rare brain tumor. There is diversity of presentation in cases due to the nature of its diffuse involvement. Very recently, on February 2016 in the department of Paediatric Neurology, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), Dhaka, Bangladesh we encountered a 10 years old boy who initially mimicked as tuberculoma of brain but later on diagnosed as Gliomatosis Cerebri on the basis of brain MRI and brain biopsy. Prognosis is always very gloomy regardless of the treatment strategy adopted...

Coarctation of the aorta is a congenital cardiac malformation that can go undiagnosed until old age with only hypertension as a marker of its presence because clinical signs can be subtle and overlooked if a complete physical exam is not performed. Long-term survival is exceptional in patients with untreated aortic coarctation. In this case report, we present a late diagnosis of aortic coarctation in a 45-year-old male. Our patient was relatively asymptomatic until he presented with exertional dyspnea and fatigue in his fourth decade of life in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU), on the month of August, 2016...

The prognostic value of admission troponin I (tnI) levels and the resolution of the ST-segment elevation in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is well established. However, the combination of these two early available markers for predicting the risk of early mortality has not been evaluated yet. This prospective analytical study conducted in the department of Cardiology, Sir Salimullah Medical College and Mitford Hospital, Dhaka and NICVD, Dhaka, Bangladesh from March 2004 to February 2005. We have evaluated 80 patients with streptokinase treated STEMI who had both admission troponin I and ST-monitoring...

Ureteral stent placement is a common procedure in urologic practice. Forgotten, encrusted D/J stents represent a difficult problem for urologists. The major complications are infection, impaired renal function, migration, encrustation, stone formation and multiple fragmentation of stent. A consensus on the best therapeutic approach is still lacking. Here we present our experience with endoscopic management of this challenging problem and discuss the multimodal endourologic approaches for treating forgotten, encrusted ureteral stents...

High-energy tibial plateau fractures associated with severe soft tissue injury are difficult to manage. The risk of wound complications following open reduction and internal fixation is notably high owing to extensive soft tissue dissection. Alternatively, application of Ilizarov ring fixator minimizes soft tissue dissection and provides adequate fracture stabilization to allow early range of motion and correction of any mal-alignment. With this technique, soft tissue complications particularly surgical site infections are expected to be significantly reduced...

Rheumatic heart disease causes a significant number of morbidity and mortality in Bangladesh. Although the mitral and the aortic valve are the two most involved valves in rheumatic heart disease, the tricuspid valve disease is not uncommon secondary to, or in association with, mitral or aortic valve disease, but receives less attention as compared to the primary left-sided valve disease. Appropriate treatment of the tricuspid valve disease may improve long-term functional outcome. But the pattern and extent of the tricuspid valve involvement was not studied recently...
