The aim of the present study was to investigate the transdermal permeation enhancing capability of turpentine oil for ibuprofen from hydrogels. Ibuprofen 1% w/v hydrogels were developed with carboxypolymethylene with and without turpentine oil. Turpentine oil was incorporated in increasing concentrations, i.e. 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 3% of the total gel(More)
An audit of 3374 appendectomy specimens in 2578 Saudi and 796 non-Saudi nationals revealed a diagnosis rate of 74.7% of inflamed appendix, a normal appendix range of 7.8% to 22.5% with the higher rate of normal appendix found among females. The finding of high incidence of schistosomal appendicitis among Egyptian males is not surprising given the high(More)
This is a retrospective study of 361 thyroid specimens during a 6 1/2-year period with the objective of investigating the prevalence and pattern of thyroid malignancy associated with multinodular goitre (MNG) and solitary nodule (SN). Fourteen of 172 MNG (8%) and 16 of 105 SN (15.2%) were associated with malignancy, a statistically insignificant difference(More)
OBJECT The incidence of hydrocephalus requiring shunts in children with myelomeningocele (MMC) is reported to be very high.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The endoscopic transsphenoidal approach is commonly used surgical approach for pituitary adenomas. However, adenomas with dumbbell configuration, pure suprasellar location, and fibrous consistency are difficult to remove by this approach. Recently, the extended endoscopic endonasal approach (EEEA) has been utilized to excise this(More)
The surgical treatment of craniopharyngiomas is challenging. An optimal surgical approach is extremely important to achieve complete removal of the tumor, which is often the goal of treatment. Conventionally, the endoscopic transsphenoidal approach is used for resection of craniopharyngiomas that are essentially confined to the sellar cavity, or have(More)
The World Health Organization (WHO) in 2008 recommended the use of currently licensed typhoid vaccines using a high risk or targeted approach. The epidemiology of disease and the vaccine characteristics make school-based vaccination most feasible in reducing typhoid disease burden in many settings. To assess feasibility of school-based typhoid vaccination,(More)
