Destructive Eye Surgeries among Children

Preface

Welcome to the sixth issue (Volume 2, Issue 2) of Journal of Biomedical Research and Clinical Practice (JBRCP) and the second release in 2019. This issue goes with the title: “Destructive eye surgeries among children” in which the authors examined their indications over a ten year period and came to the conclusion that 84% of the cases were avoidable while child abuse played a key role. They further advocated strict implementation and enforcement of Child’s Right Act to tame this ugly trend.
Also patterns of presentation and diagnostic profile of patients attending a mental health facility in north-central Nigeria was analysed and the authors found out that mental disorders of childhood and old age were underrepresented. They therefore recommended increased public awareness of the disease and advocated elimination of stigma against the disease by the public. In another study patients who leave the accident & emergency department against medical advice were examined and the authors found out that younger males with orthopaedic and trauma cases were the major culprits. The authors therefore recommended proper and thorough counseling of this group of patients at the time of admission to hospital.
The role of micro-RNA 466i on vaso-occlusive complications of sickle cell anaemia patients was studied and the authors found out that although micro-RNA 466i increased with age, it played insignificant role in vaso-occlusive complications among sickle cell anaemia patients. Several other well researched articles that have passed our rigorous double-blind peer-review process are available in this edition to further sharpen your appetite towards qualitative research and publications.
