The prevalence of inguinal hernia in adult Ghanaian males

, : The prevalence of inguinal hernia in adult Ghanaian males. Tropical and Geographical Medicine 30(1): 39-43

Indirect inguinal hernia imposes a heavy patient caseload on surgical services in Africa. This study, conducted in rural southern Ghana in 1973, showed a marked increase in prevalence in adult males aged 55 years and older. In contrast, hospitalized patients undergoing herniorrhaphy in Accra were evenly distributed through all age groups. As hospital services expand and rural patients have better access to surgical care, recent innovations such as short stay surgery may be important for coping with rising patient demand.

The thiobarbituric acid test for malondialdehyde is widely used as an indicator of lipid peroxidation and free radical activity. We describe a simple and sensitive high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for measuring the malondialde...

The crystal structure of photosystem II (PSII) at 3.0-angstrom resolution suggests that titratable residues on the lumenal side of D1/D2 and PsbO form a polar channel, which might serve as a proton exit pathway associated with water oxidation on t...

There is evidence that the inadequate erythropoietin (Epo) production observed in patients undergoing allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) might be ascribed to an inhibitory effect caused by the immunosuppressive drug cyclosporin A (CsA)....
