ABSTRACT

Objective:  To  determine  the   effect of Ramadan fasting on plasma sodium, potassium, creatinine and urea levels in patients with renal transplant.

Design: Prospective study.

Setting: Ibn-Sina Teaching Hospital. During  Ramadan 1421 Hijri (November- December 2000).

Participants: Twenty-three patients with renal transplants, aged 27-55 years.

Main   outcome   measures:   Plasma   sodium, potassium, creatinine and urea levels were compared in the patients studied before and during Ramadan.

Results: No significant changes occurred in plasma sodium, potassium, creatinine and urea levels during Ramdan.    

Conclusion: Ramadan fasting can be allowed for transplant patients with normal graft function at least during Winter; However, other studies are needed especially when Ramadan falls in Summer to confirm this observation.

  1. Pituitary- gonadal dysfunction in uremic men on maintenance hemodialysis . (Ann Coll Med Mosul 2005;31:93 -96).

ABSTRACT

Objective: To examine serum prolactin (P.RL), luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating

hormone (FSH) levels in male patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (HD) and their roles in the pathogenesis of infertility .

Design: Cross-sectional study.                                           

Setting: Artificial Kidney and Dialysis Unit at Ibn-Sena teaching hospital, Mosul, during the period from July to September 2002. 

Subjects: Thirty male patients with CRF undergoing maintenance HD and 30 apparently healthy volunteers (control group) were included in this study.

Method: Complete history and physical examination was performed for every patient included in this study with special emphasis on duration of illness, marital status and fertility. Serum PRL, LH, FSH levels were measured; unpaired t-test was used to assess the difference in the mean of serum level of these hormones between patients with CRF and control group.

Results: Serum PRL, LH and FSH levels were significantly higher (P< 0.0001, P< 0.0001 and P< 0.0001) in patients with CRF in comparison with the control group.

Conclusion: Abnormally high levels of serum PRL, LH and FSH are common in patients with CRF undergoing maintenance HD. This abnormality may play a role in the pathogenesis of infertility in these patients.

13 . Plasma  level  of  atrial  natriuretic  peptide(ANP)  during  normal  pregnancy  and  preeclampsia. (Ann Coll Med Mosul  2005;31:1 -5).

ABSTRACT

Objective: To assess plasma atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) level in pregnant and preeclamptic women, and to evaluate the role of this hormone’ in the defense mechanism against body fluids and electrolytes disorders encountered under such physiological and pathophysiological conditions.

Design : A case  series study.

Setting : Al – Batool  Teaching Hospital for Gynecology and Obstetrics, Mosul, during the period from December 2003 to September 2004.

participant: twenty five women with normal pregnancy (group I ), 25 pregnant women with preeclampsia (groupII),and 25 healthy non pregnant women (control group) were included in this study.

Methods:  plasma ANP, serum creatinin, urea sodium and  potassium were measured in all. groups. unpaired t-test  was used to examine the difference in the mean of the studied parameters between different groups. Pearson correlation was used to assess the relation between different parameters within each group.

Results: The mean of plasma ANP level  was significantly higher in group I (p<0.05) and group ll (p<0.0001) than that in the Control group l. Furthermore the plasma ANP level was significantly higher in group ll (p<0.0001) than that in group l. The mean of serum creatinine and, serum urea were significantly higher in group II than that in group I (P<0.005and p<0.0001) and control group (p<0.0001and p<0.0001).

Conclusion: The results of this study  indicate that plasma ANP level significantly increases during  pregnancy especially among those who develop preeclampsia. Since ANP plays an important role in the maintenance of body fluids and electrolytes homeostasis and blood Pressure regulation, estimation of plasma ANP level may be of value in better understanding and management of pathophysiological conditions that challenge  the body homeostatic mechanisms during pregnancy.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To examine the plasma level of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) in patients with hypertension and to   evaluate the importance of plasma level of these hormones in predicting the left ventricular  function in these patients.

Design: A case-series study.

Setting: Echocardiography Unit of Ibn-Sena teaching hospital and Medical college, Mosul. During the period from August 2004 to March 2005.

Participants: Sixty patients with essential hypertension, were divided into 3 groups depending on severity of the disease. Group I, included 17 patients, group II, included 24 patients and group III, included 19 patients. The study also included 30 apparently healthy volunteers as a control group.

Methods: Plasma ANP, BNP and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF%) were measured in hypertensive patients as well as in the control group. The ANOVA test was used to examine the difference in the mean of the studied parameters within patient groups themselves and between patient groups and control. Pearson correlation coefficient was used to study the correlation of the studied parameters within each group. All values are expressed as mean ±SD.

Results: The mean of plasma ANP was significantly higher in group III than that in control group (p<0.001) and group I (p<0.05). The mean of plasma BNP was significantly higher in group I It than that in control group (p<0.0001), groupI (p<0.0001) and group II (pO.0001). Furthermore, the plasma BNP was significantly higher (p<0.01) in group II than that in control group. The mean of LVEF% was significantly lower in group III than that in control group (p<0.0001), group I (p<0.0001) and group II (p<0.001). There was a significant negative correlation between plasma BNP level and LVEF% in group III (r = – 0.62, p< 0.005).

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that plasma ANP and BNP levels are significantly increased in patients with severe hypertension. The results also indicate that BNP may be an excellent screening test for left ventricular dysfunction in hypertensive patients.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To assess Atrial and  Brain natriuretic peptide levels in subjects with  congenital heart disease, and their role in evaluation  of left ventricular function among these subjects.

Methods: Sixty two subjects with  congenital heart disease (28 males, 34 females) aged(1-20years),  were studied in the Echocardiography unit at Ibn-Sena teaching hospital in Mosul,  from  October 2004 to  September 2005. The study also included 20  apparently healthy volunteers (9 males and 11 females ) aged 2 -20 years as control group. for every subject participate in the study Plasma concentration of ANP and BNP, and left ventricular ejection fraction  were determined

Results: The mean  of plasma level of ANP and BNP  were significantly higher in  cyanotic subjects with  congenital heart disease compared with non-cyanotic (P≤ 0.002 ; P≤ 0.0001) and control group ( P≤ 0.001; P≤ 0.0001).The mean of  LVEF% was significantly lower in  cyanotic subjects compared with non-cyanotic subjects ( P≤ 0.0001) and control group( P≤ 0.0001), but there was no significant difference in the mean of  LVEF% between  non-cyanotic subjects and control group. The result of study showed a significant negative correlation between the mean of BNP and mean of LVEF% in cyanotic subjects (r=- 0.8; p≤ 0.01), non-cyanotic subjects (r=- 0.7; p≤ 0.01), as well as in group I(r=- 0.8; p≤ 0.01), group II(r=- 0.75; p≤ 0.01)  and group III (r=- 0.69; p≤ 0.02). There was also a significant negative correlation between the mean of ANP and mean of LVEF% in group I(r=- 0.38; p≤ 0.02).

Conclusion: the results of this study reviled that increased plasma level of ANP and BNP are common in subjects with congenital heart disease and it strongly correlated with the ventricular function. However, the plasma level of BNP appear to be superior to ANP as efficient, non-invasive cardiac markers for evaluating the ventricular function    in these subjects.
