Talonavicular arthritis can be caused by the conditions involving cartilage damage.some of the etiologies of talonavicular arthritis includes congenital (clubfoot, talocalcaneal and calcaneal -scaphoid coalitions), post traumatic (scaphoid fractures, chopart fractures-luxation, talus fractures etc). The symptoms of talonavicular arthritis includes swelling,pain and stiffness. The early diagnosis is most important to identify joint injury by X-rays,CT scans, MRI. Medical treatment for talonavicular arthritis includes analgesics and NSAID’s. Surgical procedures like arthrodesis can be performed when medical treatment&nbsp; fail to improve the conditions.</p> <p><strong>Case Presentation: </strong>The patient was 64 years old male patient who has classical presentation of talonavicular arthritis .He had complained of pain in the left foot and pain on weight bearing&nbsp; since a fall&nbsp; 6 years back.Patient had a history of fall from bike which caused traumatic injury and lead to Talonavicular Arthritis. Radiographs and Computed Tomography (CT) scans revealed Arthritis of talonavicular bone MRI revealed the mild arthritic change in talonavicuar joint .Patient have been advised to undergone arthrodesis of&nbsp; talonavicular jont.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Talonavicular arthrodesis is one of the most effective procedures for the treatment of traumatic talonavicular arthritis by providing the functional improvement and by reducing the pain.</p> Nandini Pandey, N.

In recent years, it is an unprecedented reason for occupancy in hospital wards and intensive care units.</p> <p><strong>Aims: </strong>In this study, it was aimed to compare the lung dynamics, prognosis, and mortality of vaccinated and unvaccinated patients in the intensive care unit.</p> <p><strong>Study Design:</strong> Patients hospitalized in Intensive Care Units between August 1, 2021 and September 30, 2021 were retrospectively examined.</p> <p><strong>Methods and Materials: </strong>A total of 197 vaccinated and unvaccinated patients over 18 years of age, with positive Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests, and hospitalized in the intensive care unit were included in the study. Age, gender, comorbidity, vaccination, oxygen support, mechanical ventilator parameters, intubation times, radiology data and mortality of the patients included in the study were examined.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> This study, COVID-19 disease is more common in male gender, patients over 65 years of age and those with comorbidities. Unvaccinated patients are 4 times more likely vaccinated patients to be in intensive care. Almost all patients need oxygen support, but intubation is more often in unvaccinated patients. Mortality rates in the intensive care unit; it was found in 18% vaccinated patients, 64% unvaccinated patients, 53.8% overall. The most common causes of mortality were Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) and sepsis.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Severe ARDS is more often to unvaccinated patients. Lung dynamic compliance &lt;18 mL/cmH<sub>2</sub>O is related with mortality. Severe lung damage on Computed Tomography (CT) score is related with ARDS and mortality. Mortality is more often to unvaccinated patients.</p> Bayrakçı Sinem, Bayrakçı Onur ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 26 Apr 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Left Ovarian Torsion: A Case Report <p>Ovarian torsion accounts for more than 3% of gynecological emergencies with an incidence, among all ages of women, of 5.9 per 100,000 women. This affection can be simply defined as twisting of the ovary around its ligamentous support, often resulting in impedance of its blood supply which can lead to ovarian necrosis, infection and peritonitis. Ovarian torsion is mainly associated with presence of benign ovarian masses, as malignant tumors are less frequent and less prone to undergo ovarian torsion. This is why this complication needs to be diagnosed as early as possible to preserve the function of ovaries and fallopian tubes and to prevent necrosis. Some of the surgical procedures available to untwist the ovary are laparoscopy and laparotomy. If there is prolonged loss of blood flow to the ovary and surrounding tissue then the procedures like oophorectomy and salpingo-oophorectomy are suggested.</p> K. Samyuktha, Nandini Pandey, T.

MEs are a complicated problem. They can arise at any point throughout the medication development process and are linked to a variety of healthcare professionals. Medication errors are a serious medical problem. However, the language connected with these beliefs may be puzzling even at the most basic level, and the influence on individuals and communities is sometimes understated.</p> <p>When an error is detected, patients want immediate disclosure, in-person disclosure, an apology, and a discussion of steps to prevent future problems. Learning more about drug mistakes may help health care workers give their patients with safer therapy.</p> K. K. Sharma, Arinjay Jain, Shubham Singh Tyagi, Yash Goel, .

Alcoholism has listed as one of the three most deadly killer diseases of the 20th century by World Health Organization. According to Ayurveda, Madatyaya is a disease which is characterized by various conditions related to excessive and improper alcohol drinking. Alcohol will affect as an inebriant and contributes to 3 million mortalities each year globally with many more morbidities. Ayurveda has mentioned about the concept of <em>Dinacharya</em> (daily routine) which denotes the whole range of activities, attitudes of every day from sunrise to sunset which leads to positive health. Thus the objectives of this study were to study on Madatyaya with special reference to Alcoholism and applicability of concept of <em>Dinacharya</em> (Daily routine) to maintain healthy life styles of patients of Madatyaya and their morbidities with special reference to Alcoholism. The literature data were gathered by Ayurvedic authentic text books, Medical books, previous published Journals and authentic web sites. According to Charaka Samhita it has mentioned about the origin of Madatyaya as Vataja, Pittaja, Kaphaja and Sannipataja. Considering on gathered data, it can be concluded that signs, symptoms and complications mentioned in both modern and Ayurveda systems are correlated to each and applying the concept under&nbsp;<em>Dinacharya</em> as getting up in <em>Brahmamuhurtha</em>, <em>Ushapana</em> (Intake of water in early morning), <em>Sauchakarma</em> (Voidings of excrements), <em>Dantadhavana</em> (cleaning of teeth), <em>Jivhanirlekhana</em> (cleaning of tongue), <em>Anjana</em> (application of collyrium), <em>Nasya</em> (nasal cleansing), <em>Gandusha , Kavala</em> (mouth gargles), <em>Abhyanga</em> (Massage), <em>Snana (Bath), Vyayama</em> (Exercise), <em>Udvarthana </em>(exfoliation) and <em>Ahara</em> (diet) gives positive effect on managing morbidities occurred due to Alcoholism.</p> M.
