The aim of this research is to study of use and non-use of heparin in children eye surgery, differentially. This is case control study conducted on sartan 1397 to jawza 1398 within one year on 30 patients in University Teaching Hospital Eye ward.</p> <p>In group A, there were 14 eyes that used heparin sodium in surgery and in group B there were 16 eyes that had surgery with no heparin sodium uses. Statistical analysis of the study revealed that the odds ratio is 7.714 that is seven times greater use of heparin with improvement and better result. the p valve is 0.0256 which is very close to the fact and Z statistic is 2.233.</p> <p>In research group A in which we used heparin in cataract surgery 2 eyes 14, 28% had a posterior capsule density, one patient had a posterior synechia that gave 7, 14%, and two patients who had hyphaemia that gave 14,28%,that mean anterior chamber had blood . In B group three eyes pupil completely close mean had occulosive pupil 18, 75%.</p> <p>In the study 14 female gender 46, 66% and 16 male genders 53, 33 % were in observation. And research has shown that the use of heparin to prevent the complications of cataract surgery in children is most likely having good result.</p> 2019-09-01T10:06:22+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 International Journal For Research In Biology & Pharmacy (ISSN: 2208-2093) Study on Related Factors of Giardiasis in Nangarhar 2019-09-01T13:05:07+00:00 Teaching Assistant Dr. Shah Agha Salehi Teaching Assistant Dr. Ahmadgul Azamee Assistant professor Dr. Mohammad Azim azimee <p>Giardia lamblia is the leading cause of water born diarrhea in developing countries that can increase the morbidity and mortality of children.
