Abstract

Micro Ribonucleic Acids, or miRNAs, are short non-coding RNAs. Their length, on average, is 22 nucleotides, and they function in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. MiRNAs have their own nomenclature, and the same miRNAs can be found across different species. MiRNAs play important roles in many physiological and pathological processes in the human body. Regarding cancer, miRNAs are involved in carcinogenesis. MiRNAs work by binding completely or incompletely with messenger RNAs (mRNAs). Complete binding with mRNA produces mRNA degradation, while incomplete binding produces translational inhibition. Eventually, miRNAs decreased gene expression. In cancer, miRNAs show unique and different expression profiles. Based on their role in activating or deactivating intracellular signaling pathways, miRNAs can be classified as oncomiR or tumor suppressor miRNA. In non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), miRNAs are associated with gene mutation status, and they have important roles as diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive biomarkers.

Abstract

Background: Severe acute respiratory injury caused by COVID-19 (ARDS) is a serious emerging complication. ARDS results from a cytokine storm that occurs in the second week of the disease course and acute-onset hypoxemia can be seen with bilateral infiltrates on chest radiograph. This study aimed to relate the severity of symptoms and D-dimer level to the incidence of ARDS in COVID-19 at H. Adam Malik Hospital as the referral center for COVID-19 in North Sumatra. Method: This was a descriptive study with a retrospective cohort design. The sample of this study was secondary data from medical records of positive RT-PCR COVID-19 patients from November 2020 to April 2021. The inclusion criteria were patients with moderate to critical COVID-19 cases with D-dimer examination taken from the first day of admission. Subjects were then followed up until discharge from the hospital to assess for ARDS episodes which were confirmed by the results of PaO2/FiO2 in arterial blood gases and bilateral infiltrations in chest X-Ray. The exclusion criteria were incomplete medical records. Results: The association between the severity of symptoms and the incidence of ARDS, 1 of which was found to be moderate, 19 cases were severe and 20 were critical. However, there was a statistically significant correlation between the severity of symptoms and the incidence of ARDS (P=0.0001). Conclusion: There was a significant correlation between the severity of symptoms and the D-dimer value on the incidence of ARDS.

Abstract

Background: Lung cancer is one of the most common malignancies that leads to mortality. In Indonesia, lung cancer ranks first in men and third in women. The most common histological type of lung cancer is adenocarcinoma. Adenocarcinoma lung cancer is divided into 2 types, namely EGFR mutations and no mutations (wild-type). Chemotherapy is the treatment of choice for advanced wild-type adenocarcinoma lung cancer. This study aimed to assess the one-year survival of wild-type adenocarcinoma lung cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Method: This study used a cross-sectional study design.Data were taken from the medical records of cancer patients at Dr. Saiful Anwar Hospital Malang in 2018-2019. Data were processed and analyzed by chi-square test. Results: Of the 54 subjects, 24 patients received carboplatin/ pemetrexed (44.4%), 15 patients received carboplatin/paclitaxel (27.8%), 9 patients received carboplatin/gemcitabine (16.7%), 2 patients received pemetrexed (3.7%), and 4 patients received gemcitabine (7.4%). The chemotherapy drug regimen had no correlation with one-year survival (P=0.899). Conclusion: There wasno significant difference between one-year survival andchemotherapy drug regimens. This study required a larger sample to minimize bias.

Abstract

Lung resection is part of the treatment of various lung diseases, both malignancy and infection. Although it has great benefits, lung resection can result in a variety of functional disorders that can affect the whole cardiopulmonary system. The mortality of these procedures is 2-4% in segmentectomy and 6-8% in lobectomy, while the mortality of pneumonectomy in the world is 11%. Good preoperative assessment of patients has been reported to have reduced mortality and morbidity after lung resection. Things that need to be considered to assess preoperative eligibility include age, lung function, cardiovascular fitness, nutrition, and performance status. The preoperative pulmonary tolerance assessment is divided into three stages: the first stage is the assessment of lung function and blood gas analysis, the second stage is to assess postoperative prediction of pulmonary function, and the third stage is to assess the maximum oxygen consumption per minute by doing a cardiopulmonary exercise test. Patients who have a good tolerance for lung resection are patients who have predictive postoperative force expiration volume one second (ppoFEV1) values more than 40%, predictive postoperative diffusion capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (ppoDLCO) more than 50%, and maximum oxygen consumption (VO2 max) more than 15ml/kg/min.

Abstract

Pleural effusion is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the pleural space due to an imbalance in increased pleural fluid production and decreased absorption. An ultrasound device can be used to guide the procedure to evacuate the pleural effusion fluid, increasing the procedure's accuracy and lowering the risk of complications. Several calculation methods can be used to calculate the volume of fluid in both an upright sitting position and a supine position. Ultrasound is nearly 100% more accurate than chest X-ray in detecting pleural fluid.

Abstract

Background: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). The increase in the number of COVID-19 cases was happening quite quickly and has spread between countries so that COVID-19 has become a pandemic in the world. This study aimed to determine the characteristics of COVID-19 patients at Haji Adam Malik General Hospital Medan. Method: This was a descriptive study. Data were taken from the medical records of 110 hospitalized patients with positive RT-PCR results for COVID-19 from December 2020 to April 2021. The inclusion criteria for the case samples were patients diagnosed with COVID-19 based on RT-PCR and the exclusion criteria were incomplete medical records. Characteristic analysis was carried out using the Kruskal Wallis test. Results: The most common comorbidities found in patients with severe COVID-19 were diabetes mellitus and HIV. The most common comorbidity found in moderate-level COVID-19 patients was pregnant women. The most common chest X-rays finding in severe and critical levels was bilateral infiltrates. Recovered patients were mostly obtained at moderate level, while deceased patients were mostly observed at critical levels. Conclusion: Characteristics of COVID-19 patients at Haji Adam Malik General Hospital were classified based on the degree of disease by age, lymphocyte value, N/L ratio, levels of CRP, D-dimer, procalcitonin, fibrinogen, ferritin, and comorbidities as well as the appearance of infiltrates in both lung fields.
