The Journal of Medical Research and Innovation is an award-winning and open peer-reviewed journal which covers all aspects of Medicine including cellular biology, zoology and futuristic medicine (Robotics and Artificial Intelligence in medicine). The journal will feature original research, reviews, editorials, case studies, brief communications, opinions/views, poster presentations and audios & videos. This will be of interest to medical practitioners, clinical educators, nurse practitioners and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients.
The journal will publish at least two issues (Bi-Annually. First issue in January and Second in July) each year. Articles are published online when ready for publication (Continuously) as Article in Press. Additional issues may be published for special events (e.g. conferences) and when special themes are addressed. Please note that JMRI only accepts invited articles. If you want to submit an article, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org before submitting to discuss the possibility of a publication in JMRI
The Journal of Medical Research and Innovation would like to thank each and every one who has helped us to review and edit the articles. As a small token of appreciation, we would like to mention the names of all the editors and reviewers in random order here who have edited or reviewed the articles for the July, 2018 issue. The list will be updated as when more reviewers review the articles.
Markers of Poor Prognosis in Non-ST Segment Elevation Acute Coronary Syndromes Without Revascularization: A 3-Year Survival Analysis
The non-ST elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS) account for more than 50% of the total number of patients with ACS. The mortality rates after NSTEMI are not significantly different when compared with patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
Hydroelectrophoresis for Transdermal Administration of Verapamil or of Hyaluronic Acid in Peyronie's Disease: A Prospective, Open Label, Multicenter Study
To assess the efficacy of a new electromotive system for the transcutaneous delivery of verapamil or of hyaluronic acid to improve the symptoms of Peyronie' s disease (PD) in patients with a curvature deformity of < 30° at the beginning of therapy.
Aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) of talus is rare benign, expansile and osteolytic bone growth. Cyst contains bloody fluid lined with variable amount of osteolytic giant cells. This is common in epiphyseal ends of long bone and rare in small bones like talus. Here a 20 years’ male with aneurysmal bone cyst of talus managed with wide intralesional curettage with autologous bone graft mixed with synthetic bone graft been presented.
Dyk-Davidof-Masson Syndrome (DDMS) is an important cause of intractable and drug-resistant seizures. It has varied clinical presentation and history with distinct neuroimaging features. Here, we describe a female patient presented with recurrent intractable convulsion, mental retardation, hemiparesis, and characteristic neuroimaging features of cerebral hemiatrophy, calvarial thickening, and ipsilateral hyperpneumatization of the frontal sinuses which is suggestive of DDMS. Early institution of neuroimaging in patients with intractable epilepsy will make early diagnosis and better outcome.
Developing A Scale for Measuring Perfection Quotient (PQ) to Predict Readiness to Health Behavior Change
The concept of perfection quotient (PQ) that imbibes the basics of intelligence quotient (IQ), emotional quotient (EQ), X quotient (XQ) and spiritual dimension has been proposed to measure readiness for individual-level health behavior change. PQ can be defined as a sum total of combined cognitive capacity, balanced emotions, desirable personality traits, and spiritual awareness to meet the best possible success of life goals. The present article reifies this concept into a practical scale that includes the concept of IQ implicitly by developing the scale at less than seventh-grade level. It explicitly operationalizes the concept of EQ through three constructs namely self-awareness, mood management, and self-motivation into a health emotional quotient (HEQ). It also operationalizes the concept of health X quotient (HXQ) through the constructs of cautiousness, independence, and competition with self. Finally, it operationalizes the concept of health spiritual quotient (HSQ) through the constructs of self-love and love for others around oneself. The summation of HEQ, HXQ, and HSQ yields the PQ score which can range from 0-100 units. It is proposed that score of 0-25 units indicates needing improvement low perfection score; a score of 26-50 units indicates needing improvement small perfection score; a score of 51-75 units indicates moderate perfection score that can be better; a score of 76-100 units indicates high perfection score on the continuum and high readiness for health behavior change. The scale can be freely used by health behavior researchers while providing due credit.
