Brain Surgeons Perform ‘Wonders’ at Tappita Hospital

first_imgA 16-member team of medical specialists from the Canadian based Korle-Bu Neuroscience Foundation (KBNF), has successfully conducted brain, back and other critical surgeries on 18 patients at the Jackson Fiah Doe Memorial Hospital in Tappita, Nimba County.The patients, who benefited from the neurological operations, include women, men and children who, for a protracted period, have been suffering from brain, back and other illnesses and injuries.    The team includes neurologists (brain and spinal surgeons), anesthesiologists, pathologists, respiratory specialists and registered nurses from world-class universities.Since the medical specialists’ arrival in the country on March 14, 2014, scores of Liberians and non-Liberians have been visiting the JFD Hospital on a daily basis, seeking brain and other related surgical treatments.A joyful family member of one of the benefiting patients characterized the neurological work being carried out by the KBNF team at the JFD Hospital as ‘wonderful.’ Headed by registered nurse, Marjorie Ratel, the team is also conducting a nearly month-long training program for Liberian healthcare practitioners at the JFD Referral Hospital.Founded a few years ago, the registered charity is focused on providing medical support to Ghana and other countries in the West African region— including Liberia— in addressing brain and other injuries and diseases.Speaking to journalists over the weekend in Tappita, Ratel pointed out that KBNF places a premium on the development of world-class hospitals, conduct of neurological research and implementation of specialist training for doctors, nurses and bio-medical engineers in the West African region.Asked by a reporter why such neurological operations were being done only at the JFD Hospital in Liberia, Madam Ratel said this is because it is the only medical center in the country that has a CT scan and a contemporary X-Ray machine that is medically required for such delicate operations.“With no neurosurgeons working in Liberia up until this year, and no anesthetic physicians in public service in Liberia, NBNF’s help is of paramount importance to the Jackson Doe Hospital,” said Ratel.She recalled that in 2012, the KBNF team taught neuroscience education at the John F. Kennedy Hospital in Sinkor, Monrovia.The ongoing training program is a follow up project for interested Liberian healthcare providers.Highlights of the training program include “Intra-operative management of neurological patients; discussions with stakeholders about referral/patient transfer options to Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital or University of Benin Teaching Hospital in Nigeria as well as assessment and recommendations relating to the potential to develop future neurosurgical capabilities in Liberia and specifically at the Jackson F. Doe Hospital.Other members of the KBNF delegation include neurosurgeon, Dr. Christopher Honey; Dr. David Udoh; Dr. Paul King; Anesthesiologist, Dr. Sampson Tudjebe; Pathologist, Dr. Mojisola Udoh. Some of the Nurses are from the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (Nigeria) and the Vancouver General Hospital in Canada.The head of the KBNF medical mission to Liberia is John Burthorne Sampson, (MD), a faculty neuro-anesthesiologist at Johns Hopkins University in the United States of America.Dr. Sampson not only has expertise in the improvement of healthcare for people in Africa but has also taught and practiced medicine in eight countries outside of the United States of America (USA) including Jamaica, Nigeria, Liberia, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mozambique, Kenya and Eritrea.For his part, Dr. Francis Nah Kateh, (MD, MHA, MPS/HSL) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Medical Director of the JFD Hospital lauded the work of KBNF team which he said has brought much health relief to Liberians, who have been faced with brain and back related illnesses and injuries.He expressed the hope that the cordial and rewarding relations that subsist between KBNF and JFD Hospital, and Liberia as a whole, will continue to flourish in the years ahead and for the mutual benefit of the two medical institutions.Dr. Kateh expressed support for the KBNF programs and activities and hoped that the desire of the KBNF to work with global partners including the Liberian healthcare delivery system in the development of sustainable medical services in the West African region would become a reality in the not distant future.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Luca Zidane makes debut for father Zinedine’s Real

first_img0Shares0000Like father, like son: Real Madrid’s goalkeeper Luca Zidane high fives defender Sergio Ramos after his debut on Saturday © AFP / JOSE JORDANMADRID, Spain, May 20 – Luca Zidane, the son of Real Madrid coach Zinedine, made his debut on Saturday in goal for the Spanish giants but admitted it was “a bitter-sweet experience”.The 20-year-old was handed his first start in Real’s final league game of the season which ended 2-2 at Villarreal. “I’m happy for my debut, but the result is a bit bitter-sweet,” said Luca after Real gave up a 2-0 lead.“My dad told me yesterday that I would play and he told me to make the most of this moment. It made me really proud to play with the best in the world.“The guys also said just to enjoy the moment.”Real coach Zinedine Zidane has four sons — two of them have now played for the European champions after Enzo featured in midfield in 2016 before moving to Alaves and then Lausanne in Switzerland.“He was the only one of the squad who had not started this year,” said Zinedine as he justified picking his own son to start Saturday.“He is a player like any other in the squad and in the end he played, he did well.”However, Luca was quick to dampen expectations of emulating his famous World Cup-winning father.“When I play, I’m Luca, not Zidane,” said the French Under-20 international.Luca joined Real’s academy when Zidane was playing for the club in 2004 and has been a regular presence in the squad this season.He was born in May 1998, a month before his father inspired France to win the World Cup.On Saturday, he had little chance with Villarreal’s first goal when Roger Martinez unleashed a stunning strike into the top corner.But the young keeper hesitated when Samu Castillejo struck the equaliser five minutes from time.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Globular Cluster Origins: Where Do We Go From Here?

first_imgThe simple explanation of globular clusters as bundles of ancient stars seems to be in a state of crisis, though the authors of a paper in the Jan. 1 issue of Nature1 try to keep a stiff upper lip.  They begin, “Nearly a century after the true nature of galaxies as distant ‘island universes’ was established, their origin and evolution remain great unsolved problems of modern astrophysics.”    For one thing, how could globulars survive all the tumult?  “Recent advances in our understanding of the globular cluster systems of the Milky Way and other galaxies point to a complex picture of galaxy genesis driven by cannibalism, collisions, bursts of star formation and other tumultuous events.”  It appears now that they cannot assume that the high metallicity (content of atoms heavier than helium) in cluster stars is an indication of old age.    Current thinking is a debate between competing models dealing with uncooperative observations.  After showing strengths and weaknesses of contenders, they ask, “Where do we go from here?”  Much work remains to be done, they admit.  Although they offer some promising areas of research, it may be that the origin and evolution of each galaxy may be unique:Detailed spectroscopic and photometric observations of the most massive galaxies in dense environments show that their globular cluster populations are generally old and coeval to within a couple of billion years.  But the age distribution of globular clusters remains an open question, as several recent studies have found a wider spread of globular cluster ages in some galaxies, including the presence of some intermediate-age metal-rich clusters.  The findings to date suggest a complex picture of globular cluster formation in galaxies, with the formation histories of no two galaxies being exactly alike.Not to end on a minor chord, they triumphantly promise that the quest for understanding galactic evolution marches on:These are exciting times in the study of extragalactic globular cluster systems.  Disentangling the myriad processes that may have contributed to the formation of nearby galaxies is a formidable challenge, but the potential reward is spectacular: a glimpse into the evolutionary histories of individual galaxies.See also the Oct. 5 entry on globular clusters.Michael J. West et al., “Reconstructing galaxy histories from globular clusters” (review article), Nature 427, 31 – 35 (01 January 2004); doi:10.1038/nature02235.We don’t know where we are, we don’t know how we got here, the territory is far more complex and formidable than we thought, and we don’t know where to go from here, but at least we can imagine how nice it would be to find our way some day.  How much do you trust this bunch?(Visited 34 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
