Purpose:To determine the trends in eye removal surgeries at a tertiary hospital in Nigeria over 26 years.
Methods:
A retrospective comparative review of clinical records of all patients who had eye removal surgery at a tertiary hospital in Ile-Ife, Nigeria, between 2014 and 2019 was done. Patients' demographic and clinical data, including indication for eye removal and type of surgery were analysed and compared with two earlier studies at the same hospital between 1994 and 2013.
Results:
There was an average of 14.3 surgeries per year between 2014 and 2019. Patients' ages ranged from 2 to 102 years, M:F was 1.5:1, the commonest indication for eye removal was infection (n=30, 34.9%), and the most common surgery was evisceration (n=70, 81.4%). Studies from 1994 to 2003 and 2005 to 2013, reported an average of 9.2 and 10 surgeries per year; ages ranging from 4 days to 88 years and 3 months to 88 years; with a M:F of 2.1:1 and 3.4:1 respectively. In both studies, the commonest indication for eye removal was trauma (43.4% and 43.8% respectively) and the most common surgery was enucleation (57.6% and 55% respectively). Trend data showed a progressive increase in eye infections (12% vs 15% vs 34.9%) and eviscerations (19.6% vs 31.2% vs 81.4%) over time.
Conclusion:
There was a change in trend towards an increase in eviscerations and infective indications for eye removal at the hospital over three decades. Prompt and optimal treatment of orbito-ocular infections is recommended to reduce the incidence of eye removal surgeries.

Adewinbi, S, Busari R, Animasahun LO, OMOTOSO E, Taleatu B.  2021.  Effective pseudocapacitive performance of binder free transparent α-V2O5 thin film electrode: Electrochemical and some surface probing, 2021/11/01. 621:413260. Abstract

Vanadium oxide nanomaterial was successfully prepared on conductive substrate via a simple and facile chemical route with no binder or additive. The film was characterized to investigate its microstructural, optical, electrical and electrochemical properties. The SEM micrographs of the annealed film presented enabling environment that is required for effective photocatalysis. It also demonstrated enhanced interaction between the film and the substrate and adequate pore size distribution that can allow free electrolytic ion intercalation/deintercalation for efficient supercapacitive response. EDX confirmed the elemental composition of the film. XRD and Raman spectroscopy showed substantial characteristic peaks that are attributes of orthorhombic crystal structure of V2O5 powder. Optical studies showed that the film exhibited high visible light transmittance and its energy band gap was found to be 2.77 eV. Pseudocapacitive performance of the V2O5 electrode was investigated via a three-electrode cell configuration. The film electrode exhibited highest areal capacity of 1.18 μAh cm⁻², energy density of 0.485 μWhcm⁻² at a power density of 107.71 μWcm⁻² and current density 0.25 mAcm⁻², moderate charge transfer resistance and superior cycling stability. The study demonstrated the viability of V2O5 film as electrode material for the development of high-performance supercapacitors.

Baloye, D, Adesina F, Kufoniyi O.  2021.  A SPATIAL DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM APPROACH TO SUSTAINABLE PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT PLANNING IN A BUILT ENVIRONMENT, 2021/10/15. Abstract

To make the MDGs a reality, especially as it affects the built environment, and to conform with the UN Agenda 21 and Habitat Agenda summed up in the concept of urban physical sustainability, there is a need to rapidly improve the quality of decisions on land use, conversion and urban renewal in developing countries, especially with regards to physical developments. The potentials of SDSS in determining optimum sites for physical developments within the built environment was the focus of this study. The SDSS developed took into consideration existing and future planning scenarios with the aim of creating a sustainable built environment. To do this, a framework for capturing existing landuse was generated and the SDSS used to generate physical development expansion scenarios of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria. The system facilitated integrated procedures for determining optimal sites for incremental physical development in such a way as to minimize impact on other aspects of development. The application of this system shows that planning especially as it relate to the urban environment can be made more flexible, dynamic and responsive to timely decisions on geographic space.

Abstract

The aim of the study was to assess if there were significant differences in the adoption of COVID-19 risk preventive behaviors and experience of food insecurity by people living with and without HIV in Nigeria. This was a cross-sectional study that recruited a convenience sample of 4471 (20.5% HIV positive) adults in Nigeria. Binary logistic regression analysis was conducted to test the associations between the explanatory variable (HIV positive and non-positive status) and the outcome variables-COVID-19 related behavior changes (physical distancing, isolation/quarantine, working remotely) and food insecurity (hungry but did not eat, cut the size of meals/skip meals) controlling for age, sex at birth, COVID-19 status, and medical status of respondents. Significantly fewer people living with HIV (PLWH) reported a positive COVID-19 test result; and had lower odds of practicing COVID-19 risk preventive behaviors. In comparison with those living without HIV, PLWH had higher odds of cutting meal sizes as a food security measure (AOR: 3.18; 95% CI 2.60-3.88) and lower odds of being hungry and not eating (AOR: 0.24; 95% CI 0.20-0.30). In conclusion, associations between HIV status, COVID-19 preventive behaviors and food security are highly complex and warrant further in-depth to unravel the incongruities identified.

Abstract

An online survey was conducted to identify factors associated with financial insecurity, food insecurity and poor quality of daily lives of adults in Nigeria during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The associations between the outcome (experience of financial loss, changes in food intake and impact of the pandemic on daily lives) and the explanatory (age, sex, education level, anxiety, depression, HIV status) variables were determined using logistic regression analysis. Of the 4439 respondents, 2487 (56.0%) were financially insecure, 907 (20.4%) decreased food intake and 4029 (90.8%) had their daily life negatively impacted. Males (AOR:0.84), people who felt depressed (AOR:0.62) and people living with HIV -PLHIV- (AOR:0.70) had significantly lower odds of financial insecurity. Older respondents (AOR:1.01) had significantly higher odds of financial insecurity. Those depressed (AOR:0.62) and PLHIV (AOR:0.55) had significantly lower odds of reporting decreased food intake. Respondents who felt anxious (AOR:0.07), depressed (AOR: 0.48) and who were PLHIV (AOR:0.68) had significantly lower odds of reporting a negative impact of the pandemic on their daily lives. We concluded the study findings may reflect a complex relationship between financial insecurity, food insecurity, poor quality of life, mental health, and socioeconomic status of adults living in Nigeria during the COVID-19 pandemic.
