METHOD The "Bipolar Disorders: Improving Diagnosis, Guidance, and Education" Arabic(More)
Recent genome-wide association studies identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on the chromosome 9p21.3 conferring the risk for CAD (coronary artery disease) in individuals of Caucasian ancestry. We performed a genetic association study to investigate the effect of 12 candidate SNPs within 9p21.3 locus on the risk of CAD in the Saudi population of(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence and patterns of dyslipidemia in Saudi patients with angiographically documented coronary artery disease (CAD). MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a cross-sectional, hospital-based study, which was conducted on all Saudi patients who underwent coronary angiography under the author's personal care and(More)
Bochdalek hernias usually present in neonates with respiratory failure, need to be operated early and are associated with a high mortality. We describe an adult patient who came to the emergency department with nonspecific recurrent chest and abdominal pain. A computed tomography scan showed a large posterolateral diaphragmatic defect and an oversized(More)
Background: Obesity is one of the most common disorders encountered in clinical practice and has major public health implications. The high prevalence of overweight and obesity among Saudi school children is a cause of concern, as obesity is associated with several complications that increase both morbidity and mortality. Aims & Objective: To determine the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) is a common cause of gastric outlet obstruction (GOO) in infants. Prolonged GOO is believed to result in acid and electrolyte disturbances, gastric atony, and delayed postoperative recovery. We studied the impact of prolonged vomiting as an indicator of GOO symptoms on the post-operative outcomes(More)
For a long time collaboration between Universities and industry has been existed, but the rapid increase of global knowledge has strengthened the demand for strategic relationships that go beyond the conventional funding of research projects. The role of the university‟s research should be developed in the coming centuries to play an important role in(More)
