SHORT SEGMENT VERSUS LONG SEGMENT PEDICLE SCREW FIXATION IN MANAGEMENT OF THORACOLUMBAR BURST FRACTURES: A META-ANALYSIS

This comprehensive meta-analysis evaluates the comparative effectiveness of short-segment pedicle screw fixation (SSF) and long-segment pedicle screw fixation (LSF) in treating thoracolumbar burst fractures. Our study examines various outcomes, including fusion rates, pain relief, functional recovery, and complication rates. Data from studies conducted between January 2018 and January 2022 were reviewed, involving a collective patient cohort of 100 individuals diagnosed with thoracolumbar burst fractures. We conducted an extensive review of the literature, including six investigations, with a total sample size of 100 patients, drawn from studies by Smith et al.(2018), Johnson et al.(2019), Brown et al.(2020), White et al.(2021), Davis et al.(2022), and Wilson et al.(2022). Fusion rates were 90% for SSF and 91% for LSF. The risk difference (RD) between SSF and LSF was-1%, indicating a marginal advantage favoring LSF (RD MH=-0.95, 95% CI:-4.02 to 2.11). Analysis of postoperative pain scores showed that SSF patients had a mean pain level of 2.4, while LSF patients reported 2.3. With low heterogeneity (T= 12%) and a Z-score of 3.42, our findings demonstrated no statistically significant difference in postoperative pain levels between SSF and LSF. Functional outcomes were assessed using the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and Short Form 36, revealing an RD of-1% in favor of LSF. However, this difference was insignificant (RD MH=-0.82, 95% CI:-3.80 to 2.16). The complication rate for SSF was 12%, and for LSF, it was 11%, with an RD of 1%, suggesting a slightly higher complication rate for SSF, although this difference was not …

An Exploration of the University Students' Experiences Regarding the

This qualitative study was a follow-up of quantitative research which was conducted to identify the male university teachers’ gender bias in the classroom. In this qualitative exploration, there were 18 students who were sampled for the study conveniently. The researchers developed an interview protocol based on (Ali et al., 2021) and collected the data with the help of individual interviews. The interview protocol comprised nine open-ended questions. The data were analyzed with the help of the Thematic analysis. The qualitative results confirmed the quantitative results that the teachers’ interaction was found biased against females. Similarly, their feedback was also found biased against males and the positive feedback and motivation are given more to the female students. Similarly, the teachers’ expectations were found biased against females in that the challenging tasks are not assigned to them keeping in view their gender. The teachers also use male-oriented language while teaching.

Water pollution has greatly increased due to industrialization, urbanization, and the absolute discharge of industrial and organic pollutants into water sources (Goel, 2006; Hussain et al., 2021). The large amounts of wastewater from many types of dyeing enterprises contain unused dyes and other chemicals (Shindhal et al., 2021). These pigments are mostly toxic and non-biodegradable (Najar and Najar, 2019). Pigment waste pollutes both subsurface and surface water, with negative consequences on vegetation and animals

Soft Sedimentary Deformations Structures (SSDS) in Neoproterozoic Sharaban Formation, Kirana Complex, Pakistan: Regional Tectonic Implications

Soft sedimentary deformation structures (SSDs) are imperative intuition into the paleotectonic history of an active tectonic setting; however, they become arduous when dealing with Neoproterozoic intracratonic regions. A lesser known stratigraphic unit of Neoproterozoic age Sharaban Formation in Pakistan was undocumented for its SSDs and other stratigraphic details. Sharaban Formation was always thought to be a unit of metaquartzites in previous studies. Though, sedimentary and metasedimentary rocks were present. These rocks are associated with primary and secondary sedimentary structures (especially SSDs). This paper aims to identify facies, primary and secondary sedimentary structures, especially SSDs, and later link them to the paleotectonic history of the region. For this purpose, a detailed field study was designed and carried out for more than a decade, with high-resolution field photographs …

CURRENT STRATEGIES IN THE PREVENTION OF POSTOPERATIVE INFECTIONS IN SPINAL SURGERY

This study aimed to analyze the strategies used to prevent postoperative infections in spinal surgery and evaluate their effectiveness in reducing the frequency of infections. The study design was retrospective and was conducted between January and December 2021 at the Department of Orthopedic & Spine Surgery, Hayatabad Medical Complex. The study included a total of 90 patients who were divided into two groups based on the preventative techniques used. Group A (n= 45) received standard preventive measures, such as preoperative antibiotics, accurate aseptic techniques, and postoperative wound care. In comparison, Group B (n= 45) was given supplementary preventive measures such as antibiotic-impregnated bone grafts and wound irrigation with antiseptic solutions. The occurrence of postoperative infections, namely surgical site infections (SSIs) and deep wound infections, was documented and compared between the two groups. The mean age of patients in Group A was 55.2±8.6 years, while it was 57.8±9.2 years in Group B. Group A consisted of 27 (60%) male and 18 (40%) female patients, whereas Group B had 29 (64.44%) male and 16 (35.55%) female patients.

Predicting Pavement Condition Index Using Fuzzy Logic Technique. Infrastructures 2022; 7: 91

The fuzzy logic technique is one of the effective approaches for evaluating flexible and rigid pavement distress. The process of classifying pavement distress is usually performed by visual inspection of the pavement surface or using data collected by automated distress measurement equipment. Fuzzy mathematics provides a convenient tool for incorporating subjective analysis, uncertainty in pavement condition index, and maintenance-needs assessment, and can greatly improve consistency and reduce subjectivity in this process. This paper aims to develop a fuzzy logic-based system of pavement condition index and maintenance-needs evaluation for a pavement road network by utilizing pavement distress data from the U.S. and Canada. Considering rutting, fatigue cracking, block cracking, longitudinal cracking, transverse cracking, potholes, patching, bleeding, and raveling as input variables, the variables were fuzzified into fuzzy subsets. The fuzzy subsets of the variables were considered to have triangular membership functions. The relationships between nine pavement distress parameters and PCI were represented by a set of fuzzy rules. The fuzzy rules relating input variables to the output variable of sediment discharge were laid out in the IF–THEN format. The commonly used weighted average method was employed for the defuzzification procedure. The coefficient of determination (R2), root mean squared error (RMSE), and mean absolute error (MAE) were used as the performance indicator metrics to evaluate the performance of analytical models.

Exploration of hydrocarbon is essential for a country’s prosperity and economy. The unconventional hydrocarbon resources had been explored at a large scale due to the depletion of conventional hydrocarbon resources. The source rock potential, depositional environment, thermal maturation, and biodegradation of ejected hydrocarbons can all be determined via organic geochemistry (Tissot and Welte, 1984; Imtiaz et al., 2017). Rock-Eval pyrolysis is a more comprehensive method that can measure useful geochemical parameters in the process of source rock geochemical assessment (ie, determination of kerogen type and maturity). Nowadays, shale-gas exploration is a debate among geoscientists. Geochemical analysis (eg, Rock-Eval) is the most widely used approach for evaluating unconventional hydrocarbons, however, it is expensive and time-consuming. Academics and geoscientists are attempting to create new methodologies for estimating TOC using well logs that are both easier and less costly (Nazir et al., 2012; Ehsan et al., 2018; Mahmoud et al., 2019; Ali et al., 2021; Kassem et al., 2021b).Due to the rapid depletion of conventional hydrocarbon resources, an increase in the exploration of unconventional resources has been observed during the last 15years that redesigning the entire petroleum industry and global energy mix with over hundred-thousand horizontal wells drilled in the United States only (EIA, 2018).

Using Gamma Rays for Genetic Improvement of Rice Resistance to Blast Disease

Seeds of two blast susceptible Egyptian rice varieties; Sakha 101 and Sakha 104, were treated by four gamma rays' doses in order to establish genetic diversity and development of some desirable mutants for blast disease resistance. Sixty selected mutant lines for each variety were examined under an artificial infection for M3 seedlings using two different races of Pyricularia oryza; ID-15 and ID-16. Results revealed that almost all Sakha 101 mutants irradiated by 400 Gy gamma rays were resistant to blast disease for both races, although their original variety was susceptible. In addition, most mutants obtained from Sakha 104 variety; which was resistant to ID-15 and susceptible to ID-16, were resistant or moderately resistant to blast disease at different gamma rays' treatments. On the bases of blast disease scoring, 16 selected mutants, as well as the two original varieties, were characterized at the molecular level using three SSR markers (RM155, RM512, and RM541) linked to rice blast resistance genes; Pi genes. A total of 11 polymorphic alleles (average of 3.67 alleles per primer) with sizes varied from 151 to 260 bp were amplified for the 18 studied genotypes. The appearance of the highest number of resistance alleles in the two Sakha 101 mutants SK-400-1-3 and SK1-400-1-4 irradiated by 400 Gy gamma rays; in addition, Sakha 104 mutants irradiated by 400 and 500 Gy may be supporting our findings of blast disease scoring. Thus, the three SSR markers could be useful to evaluate resistance to blast disease of rice.

Development of anti-fog agent for the reduction of potential occupational visual hazards at workplaces

The temperature differences across glass or plastic shield causes fogging which ultimately reduce visibility for workers at workplaces particularly in industry particularly transportation. The research implicated the development of a promising anti-fog agent in order to reduce the risks of accidents due to poor visibility. Anti-fog agent was developed in laboratory through varying formulation of ingredients such as deionized water, Iso propyl alcohol, non-ionic surfactants, sodium lauryl ether sulfate 33%, silicone wacker and alkane sulphonate. After achieving successful results at laboratory and pilot through standard testing, anti-fog agent was provided to drivers of local transport at commercial scale and their responses were obtained through questionnaires. The results revealed significant (P< 0.05) satisfaction of drivers for wind screens of cars, coasters buses as well as helmet screen of bikers. This study provided a promising solution for one of the most important concerns of fogging in transportation causing accidents. Further, this anti-fog agent can be replicated in other industries facing visual problems as a result of fogging. It is recommended that this anti-fog agent should be supplied at commercial scale after approval from concerning government department to avoid future loss.

Globalization And Threat To The Security Of Pakistan

In this paper we have discussed the link of globalization, security and terrorism with reference to Pakistan. We have discussed that how Pakistan is lacking deep behind in the process of globalization. It is basically due to this reason that the menace of terrorism spread like wild fire in the country and it became difficult for the government to control it. Although, the security situation of the country has improved very much but still efforts are needed to secure the country on a permanent basis. We have divided this paper into four parts. We have begun the first part of the paper by discussing the impact of globalization on the society of Pakistan. In this part of the paper we have examined the ways in which globalization has changed Pakistan economically and politically and concluded that Pakistan is lagging far behind in this globalized world. We have concluded in this part that only through excellent governance and improvement in the information technology, Pakistan will be able to reap the benefits of globalization. We also have given recommendations that how Pakistan should actively engage in the process of globalization. In the second part of the paper we have

The tube was immediately carried to Sheikh-Al-Zahid-bin-Haiyan (casualty) hospital’s laboratory for complete blood count (CBC), Blood sugar (RBS). Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), HBS-Ag, Hepatitis C virus (HCV), malarial parasites (MP), Brucella and widal test. Urine was also collected in urine bottles for examination and for COVID-19 detection swab samples were taken from nose of the participants. From the recent study it was concluded that pregnant women in the study are susceptible to many diseases and complications. It was found that 12% women were severe anemic while 23% were moderate anemic and 40% were mild anemic. Covid-19 was detected in 12% of the studied women. 2% were observed as HCV positive. 10% of the women had higher blood sugar level (RBS 190mg/dl). 35% of the studied women had a urinary tract infection (UTI). Only 1% of the participant was found to be affected by Brucella bacteria. Malarial parasite was found in almost 5% of the examined participants. HIV was rare and detected in only 1% of the examined one hundred women.

Traffic Efficiency Models for Urban Traffic Management Using Mobile Crowd Sensing: A Survey. Sustainability 2021, 13, 13068

The population is increasing rapidly, due to which the number of vehicles has increased, but the transportation system has not yet developed as development occurred in technologies. Currently, the lowest capacity and old infrastructure of roads do not support the amount of vehicles flow which cause traffic congestion. The purpose of this survey is to present the literature and propose such a realistic traffic efficiency model to collect vehicular traffic data without roadside sensor deployment and manage traffic dynamically. Today’s urban traffic congestion is one of the core problems to be solved by such a traffic management scheme. Due to traffic congestion, static control systems may stop emergency vehicles during congestion. In daily routine, there are two-time slots in which the traffic is at peak level, which causes traffic congestion to occur in an urban transportation environment. Traffic congestion mostly occurs in peak hours from 8 am to 10 am when people go to offices and students go to educational institutes and when they come back home from 4 pm to 8 pm The main purpose of this survey is to provide a taxonomy of different traffic management schemes for avoiding traffic congestion. The available literature categorized and classified traffic congestion in urban areas by devising a taxonomy based on the model type, sensor technology, data gathering techniques, selected road infrastructure, traffic flow model, and result verification approaches. Consider the existing urban traffic management schemes to avoid congestion and to provide an alternate path, and lay the foundation for further research based on the IoT using a Mobile crowd …

A Corpus Assisted Comparative Study of Metadiscourse Markers in Opinion Articles of American and Pakistani Newspapers

Writers often use metadiscourse markers to express their messages compellingly and persuasively. The current research explores the frequency of metadiscourse markers in Pakistani and American Newspapers using corpus linguistics methods. Opinion articles from both The News and The USA Today were collected, cleaned, and analyzed using the AntConc software. The primary focus of the research was on two interpersonal features: hedges and boosters. The findings of the study suggest that American writers tend to use more metadiscourse markers than Pakistani writers do. The findings also suggest that the frequency of hedges is higher than that of boosters in both Pakistani and American articles. The findings also suggest that writers prefer to use hedges to convey doubt, uncertainty, and lack of confidence. On the other hand, writers prefer to use boosters when writing about facts that make their writing style more confident and assertive.

Effect of heparin, estrogen on epididymal sperm capacitation and in vitro fertilization in Iraqi sheep

This study was designed to study the capacitation of caudal spermatozoa in vitro by different levels of heparin, estrogen for in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the Iraqi local sheep. Results of sperm capcitation (massive motility percentage) by applying three levels of heparin (50, 100, 150) IU in relation to breeding season showed no significant differences during breeding season with the three levels, which were (82.23±0.58), While results by applying the higher level of heparin (150) IU out of breeding season showed significantly (P< 0.05) more and active motility Which were (62.07±0.62) than the other levels (56.85±0.61). At the same time applications result of three estrogen levels (20, 40, 60) mg on sperm capcitation showed Positive relationship between concentrations and (massive motility percentage), which showed the highest concentration gave the best results during and out of breeding season (87.20±0.60) and (65.86±0.62) respectively. with significant differences (P< 0.05) between the three levels. While the results of the in vitro fertilization (IVF) index which reflected the sperm capcitation were recorded with the highest estrogen concentration during breeding season (22.70%) compared with the best heparin level (20%) while she was (10.45%),(8.70%) out of breeding season Sequentially, in which the highest estrogen concentration gives a best capacitation and IVF index level compared with the high heparin level over the year.

Critical Analysis of Social Constructivism: Myth or Reality for Peace and

Subjectivity is the mother of all social sciences. There is no universal truth, and no finality in social sciences. None of the theories can claim finality or objectivity. Nonetheless, theories try to explain the truth, holding water, either more or less. Theories, highlighting the intrinsic nature of humans [good and bad], the structure of international system (anarchic) or class struggle [bourgeois and proletariat] are both researchable and discernible. Social Constructivism, on the other hand labels all the theories as social constructions and itself constructs an endless desert of ideas, develops absurdity, and makes the truth less accessible and more mythical. Social Constructivism, instead of explaining the truth is making it blurred and doubtful. Instead of ensuring clarity, its own assumptions are constructing a mythical world. This analytical paper critically analyzes the social constructivists’ assumptions and their critique on all the established beliefs in general and mainstream perspectives in particular.

Meiotic behavior of interspecific hybrids between hexaploid and tetraploid wheat species

Cytogenetic behavior of five wheat genotypes of Triticum aestivum (Shandweel 1, Misr 2 and Gemmiza 11) and T. durum (Benisouef 5 and Benisouef 6) in addition to their interspecific hybrids was studied. All five parental genotypes showed normal behavior in meiosis. Also, the interspecific hexaploid× hexaploid showed normal diploid pairing at diakinesis and metaphase I with average number ranged from 18.16 (C2) to 20.49 (RC2) and from 16.77 (C2) to 20.22 (C1) bivalents, respectively. And tetraploid× tetraploid showed normal diploid pairing at diakinesis and the average of bivalents were 13.95 and 13.98 for C10 and RC10 hybrids at metaphase I, respectively. So the normal decrease of laggards and micronuclei averages was recorded. Higher incidences of aberrant chromosomal structure such as the formation of univalent, laggards and micronuclei were observed in all the six interspecific pentaploid (hexaploid× tetraploid) which could be described as an abnormal compared to the six reciprocals hybrids (tetraploid× hexaploid) which were highly unexpected normality to form normal bivalents and a low frequency of laggards and micronuclei. Pollen grains of hexaploid× tetraploid hybrids were found to have markedly lower values of viability; ranged from 0.50 to 0.72, compared to parents and the other interspecific hybrids. Thus, the present study succeeded in proving that interspecific hybridization produced fertile pentaploid hybrids.

Effect of water quantity and coverage on seeds germination and their emergence in wheat crop Triticum aestivum L

Present study was carried out in Dept. of Biology, College of Sciences/University of Kufa for the period from 10-1-2017 to 3-3-2017 to study effects of two factors; quantity of water utilized for irrigation of wheat seeds at three levels (50, 100 and 150 ml/kg soil) and type of mulching (no mulch, transparent and black plastic mulching) on seed germination and seedlings growth of wheat plant at completely treatments with three replicates. Seed germination rates at different treatments were determined 10 days post planting. The other growth indicators (plant height, root length, numbers of branches/plant, leaves/plant, fresh and dry weight) were recorded 50 days post planting. Results indicated that the irrigation with 100 ml water/kg soil, mulching with black plastic and their interaction resulted in the highest germination rates which did not differ from interaction treatment of 150 ml water/kg soil and coverage with transparent polythene. The quantity of 150 ml water/kg soil and transparent plastic mulch individually or combined were the most effective treatments resulting in increasing values of all the studied plant growth indicators.

Sketching Victorian Society: A Corpus Assisted Study of Social Class in Dickens’

The present work deals with the adjectives used by Charles Dickens to portray the social class in the novel Great Expectations. The study used a corpus linguistics methodology for data preparation, corpus development, and data analysis. The text of the novel was collected from online sources and used in the compilation of the corpus. The corpus was filtered of additional information and tagged using a part-of-speech tagger (POS tagger). The tagged data was analyzed using AntConc software. The findings of the study suggest that the use of adjectives plays a substantial role in the portrayal of the social class in the novel Great Expectations. The findings also show that there was a clear divide between upper and lower classes. The members of the lower class were humiliated and looked down upon by the members of the upper class.
