Objectives: To compare morphological abnormalities on anal colposcopy against histology to determine anal high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSILs). Methods: This is a retrospective data assessment of HIV-negative and HIV-positive patients undergoing outpatient follow-up. The sample comprised 54 patients presenting acetowhite lesions on anal colposcopy. Acetowhite lesions were classified according to their morphology into punctation, verrucous, mosaic, ulcerated, or hypervascularized, and biopsies of these specimens were classified as anal HSIL, low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL), or normal. The data were analyzed using SPSS forWindows version 13.0 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA). The results were analyzed using the nonparametric Mann-Whitney test, the Fisher exact test and the chi-squared parametric test. A 95% confidence interval (CI) was used and a level of significance <5% was adopted for all statistical tests. Results Fifty-four patients (50 males, 80% HIV+) with biopsied acetowhite lesions were assessed. There were 31 punctation lesions, 1 classified as HSIL (3.2%; 95%CI: 0- 40.0), 17 verrucous lesions, 3 HSIL (17.7%; 95%CI: 0-10.7), and 1 ulcerated, classified as HSIL (100%), and 4 mosaic and 1 atypical vessel lesion, all classified as LSIL. The results showed no association of presence of anal HSIL with positivity for HIV infection or with counts above or below 500/µl in HIV+patients. Statistical analysis was performed using the Mann-Whitney nonparametric test, the Fisher exact test, and the chi-squared parametric test. Conclusion: The comparison of morphological findings on anal colposcopy against histology revealed no morphological pattern suggesting anal HSIL. (AU)

Objective: To analyze the radiological characteristics of chest high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) of patients with asbestosis, and to investigate the signs of predicting the disease progression of asbestosis. Methods: A prospective method was used to enroll 68 patients with asbestosis who were regularly followed up from 2013 to 2016. The radiological characteristics of patients with asbestosis were described by the International Classification of HRCT for Occupational and Environmental Respiratory Diseases (ICOERD) , and the differences between patients with and without progression were compared during the observation period. The Cox proportional hazards regression model was used to analyze the chest HRCT radiological signs predicting the progression of asbestosis. Results: The study included 68 patients with asbestosis aged (65.5±7.8) years old, of which 64.7% (44/68) were female, 29.4% (20/68) had a history of smoking. There was no significant difference in age, sex, smoking and asbestos exposure between patients with progressive asbestosis (20.6%, 14/68) and patients without progressive asbestosis (79.4%, 54/68) (P>0.05) . Chest HRCT of patients with asbestosis showed irregular and/or linear opacities, of which 5.9% (4/68) were accompanied by honeycombing. Irregular and/or linear opacities were mainly lower lung preponderant, often accompanied with ground glass opacity and mosaic perfusion. 98.5% (67/68) had pleural abnormalities, of which 39.7% (27/68) had diffuse pleural thickening with parenchymal bands and/or rounded atelectasis. The analysis of multivariable Cox proportional hazard regression showed that the risk of the progression of asbestosis was increased with higher irregular and/or linears opacities cores (HR=1.184, 95%CI: 1.012-1.384, P=0.034) and the appearance of honeycombing (HR=6.488, 95%CI: 1.447-29.097, P=0.015) . Conclusion: The irregular and/or linear opacities scores and honeycombing on chest HRCT are independent influencing factors for predicting the disease progression of asbestosis.

Objective:To establish the normal values of water-perfused high resolution esophageal manometry (HREM)(GAP-36A) at resting period, water swallowing, semisolid swallowing and solid swallowing in Chinese population.Methods:From September 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020, 91 healthy volunteers receiving water-perfused HREM (GAP-36A) at resting period, water swallowing, semisolid swallowing and solid swallowing were selected from 9 hospitals (Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology; the First Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University; the Second Hospital of Hebei Medical University; the Second Affiliated Hospital, Naval Medical University; the First Affiliated Hospital, Sun Yat-sen University; the First Affiliated Hospital, University of Science and Technology of China; Aviation General Hospital of China Medical University; the Affiliated Hospital of Medical School of Nanjing University and the First People′s Hospital of Yichang). Parameters included the position of the upper and lower edges of the upper esophageal sphincter (UES) and lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the length of the LES and UES, the position of the pressure inversion point (PIP), the resting pressure of UES and LES and swallow-related parameters such as the distal contraction integral (DCI), 4 s integrated relaxation pressure (IRP), distal latency (DL) and UES residual pressure. One-way analysis of variance, post-hoc test and sum rank test were used for statistical analysis.Results:A total of 87 healthy volunteers were enrolled, including 40 males and 47 females, aged (38.5±14.2) years old (ranged from 19 to 65 years old). The position of the upper and lower edges of the LES was (42.7±2.8) and (45.6±2.8) cm, respectively, the length of the LES was (2.9±0.4) cm, and the position of PIP was (43.3±2.8) cm. The position of the upper and lower edges of the UES was (18.1±3.0) and (22.6±2.0) cm, respectively, and the length of the UES was (4.8±1.0) cm. The resting pressure of LES and UES was (17.4±10.7) and (84.1±61.1) mmHg (1 mmHg=0.133 kPa), respectively. The DCI value at solid swallowing was higher than those at water swallowing and semisolid swallowing ((2 512.4±1 448.0) mmHg·s·cm vs. (2 183.2±1 441.2) and (2 150.8±1 244.8) mmHg·s·cm), and the differences were statistically significant ( t=-4.30 and -3.74, both P<0.001). The values of 4 s IRP at semisolid swallowing and solid swallowing were lower than that at water swallowing ((4.6±4.1) and (4.9±3.9) mmHg vs. (5.4±3.9) mmHg), and the differences were statistically significant ( t=3.38 and 2.09, P=0.001 and 0.037). The DL at water swallowing was shorter than those at semisolid swallowing and solid swallowing ((8.5±1.8) s vs. (9.8±2.2) and (10.6±2.8) s), and the DL at semisolid swallowing was shorter than that at solid swallowing, and the differences were statistically significant ( t=-10.21, -13.91 and -4.68, all P<0.001). The UES residual pressure at water swallowing was higher than those at semisolid swallowing and solid swallowing (9.5 mmHg, 6.5 to 12.3 mmHg vs. 8.0 mmHg, 4.5 to 11.7 mmHg and 5.5 mmHg, 2.0 to 9.3 mmHg), and the UES residual pressure at semisolid swallowing was higher than that at solid swallowing, and the differences were statistically significant ( t=3.48, 10.30 and 6.35, all P<0.001). Conclusions:The normal values of water-perfused HREM (GAP-36A) in Chinese population at resting period, water swallowing, semisolid swallowing and solid swallowing can provide a reference basis for clinical diagnosis and treatment for patients receiving water-perfused HREM examination.

Objective:To re-identify the anatomical features of singular nerve canal (SNC) through observing and measuring the morphological characteristics of SNC using ultra-high resolution CT (U-HRCT).Methods:The U-HRCT images of 52 human head specimens (104 ears) from December 2019 to January 2020 were obtained. The best standard cross-sectional and coronal images of SNC were reconstructed. The morphology of the main trunk and branches of the SNC were observed. According to the number of turning points, the trunks of SNC were divided into single turning point type, double turning point type and no turning point type. According to the branch morphology, the branched SNC were divided into bifurcated type, confluent type, side branch type and bilateral branch type. The diameter, angle and length of each section of the posterior canal ampulla (PCA) of the main trunk, the turning point and the internal auditory meatus (IAM) were measured. Independent sample t test or Mann-Whitney U test was used to test group differences of main trunk diameter of the SNC with or without branches. Results:Totally 104 ears of 52 cases were divided into single turning point type of 79 ears, double turning point type of 20 ears and no turning point type of 5 ears. The bilateral morphological classification was the same in 30 cases (60 ears), including 24 cases of single turning point type (48 ears), 5 cases of double turning point type (10 ears), and 1 case of no turning point type (2 ears). The ear morphology on both sides was different in 22 cases (44 ears). The diameters of the PCA, the turning point and the IAM of SNC with single turning point type were (0.31±0.07), (0.40±0.10), (0.46±0.10) mm, respectively, and the angles were 60.5°±7.8°, 120.3°±9.6°, 38.3°±7.5° respectively. And the length of the PCA and the IAM in the SNC with single turning point type were (1.95±0.38), (2.31±0.68) mm, respectively. The diameters of the PCA, the turning point near the PCA, the turning point near the IAM and the IAM of SNC with double turning point type were (0.32±0.09), (0.38±0.09), (0.47±0.12), (0.47±0.13) mm, and the angle were 60.9° (57.3°, 64.9°), 117.9°±12.3°, 129.6°±12.4°, 41.7° (32.9°, 79.5°), respectively. The length of the PCA, the IAM and the distance between these two turning points were (1.78±0.31), 0.65 (0.46, 1.15), 0.96 (0.80, 1.15) mm, respectively. The diameters of the PCA and the IAM of SNC without turning point type were (0.20±0.01) and (0.50±0.12) mm. The angles with the PCA and the IAM in these cases were 58.4°±9.6° and 46.2°±5.1°, and the length was (3.61±0.32) mm. A total of 48 ears had branches, including bifurcated type (36 ears), confluence type (4 ears), side branch type (5 ears) and bilateral branch type (3 ears). In the SNC group with single turning point, the diameter of the turning point in the cases without branches was wider than that of cases with branches ( t=2.11, P=0.039). However, there was no significant difference in the diameter of each section between these two subgroups of SNC cases with double turning point type. Conclusions:U-HRCT is able to clearly show the SNC, the imaging features of whom are variable and should be re-understood.

Objective:To investigate the clinical manifestations, characteristics of chest high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT), and prognosis of connective tissue disease (CTD) complicated with interstitial lung disease (ILD) in children.Methods:The clinical data of 53 children with CTD-ILD who were admitted to the Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, Affiliated Xi′an Children′s Hospital of Xi′an Jiaotong University from October 2013 to October 2019 were retrospectively analyzed, including clinical manifestations, blood gas analysis, chest HRCT and prognosis.Results:As for these 53 children with CTD-ILD, the ratio of male to female was 1.0∶1.4, the average age was (7.50±3.34) years, and the course of disease was 2.00 (0.85, 7.50) months.Among them, there were 25 cases (47.2%) of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), 15 cases (28.3%) of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), 11 cases of polymyositis / dermatomyositis (PM/DM) (20.7%), 1 case of overlap syndrome (OS) (1.9%), and 1 case of allergic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (AGPA) (1.9%). Although cough (39.6%) was the most common symptom of respiratory system in these children with CTD-ILD and fever(66.0%) was the most common symptom in the systemic features.Blood gas analysis appeared abnormal in 17 cases, including 10 cases of hypoxemia (18.9%) and 7 cases of type Ⅰ respiratory failure (13.2%). HRCT chest showed ground glass shadow, strip shadow, subpleural spot shadow, grid shadow, pleural thickening, consolidation shadow, nodular shadow and cystic low-density shadow, with the proportion of 52.8%, 26.4%, 22.6%, 18.9%, 11.3%, 7.5%, 1.9% and 1.9%, respectively; nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP)(39.6%) was the most common type of imaging classification.After the combined treatment with glucocorticoids, immunosuppressive agents and biological agents, HRCT chest showed remarkably improvement in 36 cases (67.9%), while no change in 8 cases (15.1%). A total of 75.0%(33 cases) of 44 cases were infected in the course of combined treatment.In addition, 9 cases (17.0%) died from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), among which 4 cases exacerbated to rapid progressive luge disease and 5 cases aggravated secondary ARDS due to infection.Conclusions:Only a small number of children with CTD-ILD have respiratory symptoms and signs.HRCT chest contributes to the early diagnosis of CTD-ILD, and its imaging manifestations are diverse.Blood gas analysis and HRCT chest play an important role in the disease evaluation and treatment planning.Moreover, it is the direction for further research to develop effective methods to prevent and control secondary infection so as to improve the survival rate and reduce the mortality rate during the active treatment of primary diseases.

Scaffold hopping refers to computer-aided screening for active compounds with different structures against the same receptor to enrich privileged scaffolds, which is a topic of high interest in organic and medicinal chemistry. However, most approaches cannot efficiently predict the potency level of candidates after scaffold hopping. Herein, we identified potent PDE5 inhibitors with a novel scaffold via a free energy perturbation (FEP)-guided scaffold-hopping strategy, and FEP shows great advantages to precisely predict the theoretical binding potencies ΔG FEP between ligands and their target, which were more consistent with the experimental binding potencies ΔG EXP (the mean absolute deviations | Δ G FEP - Δ G EXP |  < 2 kcal/mol) than those ΔG MM-PBSA or ΔG MM-GBSA predicted by the MM-PBSA or MM-GBSA method. Lead L12 had an IC50 of 8.7 nmol/L and exhibited a different binding pattern in its crystal structure with PDE5 from the famous starting drug tadalafil. Our work provides the first report via the FEP-guided scaffold hopping strategy for potent inhibitor discovery with a novel scaffold, implying that it will have a variety of future applications in rational molecular design and drug discovery.

ObjectiveTo analyze the differential components in water extract of Chuanxiong Rhizoma before and after processing with wine, and to explore the molecular mechanism of Chuanxiong Rhizoma processed with wine in enhancing anti-cerebral ischemia injury. MethodUltra high performance liquid chromatography tandem quadrupole orbitrap high resolution mass spectrometry (UHPLC-Q-Orbitrap HRMS) was used to qualitatively analyze the main chemical components in water extract of Chuanxiong Rhizoma based on the spectral information of compound, comparison of reference substance and references. The chemical pattern recognition method was used to screen the differential components of Chuanxiong Rhizoma before and after processing. Based on these differential components, the potential targets of differential components were predicted by online databases, and the related targets of cerebral ischemia were searched. Cytoscape 3.6.0 was used to establish the network diagram of differential components-action targets-diseases of Chuanxiong Rhizoma processed with wine. The protein-protein interaction (PPI) network of intersection targets was constructed by STRING 11.5. The potential targets of differential components against cerebral ischemia were analyzed by Gene Ontology (GO) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) enrichment analysis through DAVID 6.8. At the same time, the chemical compounds with high relative content and increased peak area after wine processing were docked with their corresponding targets to verify the mechanism of enhanced effect after wine processing. ResultA total of 71 chemical components were identified from Chuanxiong Rhizoma, 34 differential components and 603 potential targets were screened out. At the same time, a total of 769 disease targets and 60 intersection targets were obtained. Seven key targets were identified through PPI network analysis, including JUN, signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3), mitogen-activated protein kinase 3 (MAPK3), interleukin-1β (IL-1β), vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA), Caspase-3 (CASP3) and mtrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9). Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) signaling pathway was the main differential signaling pathway. The results of molecular docking showed that differential components (senkyunolide K, senkyunolide F, 3-n-butylphthalide, Z,Z′-6,8′,7,3′-diligustilide, ferulic acid and Z-ligustilide) and corresponding targets had good binding activities. ConclusionThe synergistic mechanism of Chuanxiong Rhizoma processed with wine may be related to the enhanced inhibitory effect of inflammatory reaction.

ObjectiveTo investigate the antidiarrheal effect and mechanism of Zingiberis Rhizoma Recens on diarrhea mice, and to provide research basis for the inhibition of intestinal peristalsis by Zingiberis Rhizoma Recens and its application in the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. MethodThe diarrhea model of mice was established by Sennae Folium. The control group, model group, Zingiberis Rhizoma Recens low-, medium-, high-dose groups (0.1, 0.32, 1.0 g·kg-1) and loperamide group (1.6 g·kg-1) were set. The intervention effect of Zingiberis Rhizoma Recens with different doses on diarrhea mice was detected by diarrhea score, incidence rate of loose stools (LSIR), grade of average loose stools (ALSG), diarrhea index (DI), intestinal propulsion rate and intestinal pathological section. The serum metabonomics of mice was analyzed by ultra-performance liquid chromatography-quadrupole-electrostatic field orbitrap high resolution mass spectrometry (UPLC-QE-Orbitrap-MS), principal component analysis (PCA) and orthogonal partial least squares discriminant analysis (OPLS-DA). The conditions were as follows:mobile phase of 0.1% formic acid aqueous solution (A)-0.1% formic acid acetonitrile solution (B) for gradient elution (0-3.5 min, 5%-15%B; 3.5-6 min, 15%-30%B; 6-6.5 min, 30%B; 6.5-12 min, 30%-70%B; 12-12.5 min, 70%B; 12.5-18 min, 70%-100%B), flow rate of 0.4 mL·min-1, injection volume of 5 µL, electrospray ionization (ESI), positive and negative ion detection modes, acquisition range of m/z 100-1 500. ResultCompared with the model group, Zingiberis Rhizoma Recens high-dose group could obviously reduce the diarrhea score, LSIR, ALSG, DI and intestinal propulsion rate (P<0.05, P<0.01), and improve the intestinal mucosal injury. There were 40 main differential metabolites among the control group, model group and Zingiberis Rhizoma Recens high-dose group, including glucose 1-phosphate, xanthine, xanthosine and so on. The metabolic pathways mainly included starch and sucrose metabolism, amino sugar and nucleotide sugar metabolism, fructose and mannose metabolism, tryptophan metabolism, and galactose metabolism. ConclusionZingiberis Rhizoma Recens can inhibit intestinal peristalsis in diarrhea mice and exert antidiarrhoea effect, the mechanism of which may be related to the regulation of carbohydrate and amino acid metabolism.

PURPOSE@#Auditory nerve injury is one of the most common nerve injury complications of skull base fractures. However, there is currently a lack of auxiliary examination methods for its direct diagnosis. The purpose of this study was to find a more efficient and accurate means of diagnosis for auditory nerve injury.@*METHODS@#Through retrospectively analyzing the results of brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) and high-resolution CT (HRCT) in 37 patients with hearing impairment following trauma from January 1, 2018 to July 31, 2020, the role of the two inspection methods in the diagnosis of auditory nerve injury was studied. Inclusion criteria were patient had a clear history of trauma and unilateral hearing impairment after trauma; while exclusion criteria were: (1) severe patient with a Glasgow coma scale score ≤5 because these patients were classified as severe head injury and admitted to the intensive care unit, (2) patient in the subacute stage admitted 72 h after trauma, and (3) patient with prior hearing impairment before trauma. According to Goodman's classification of hearing impairment, the patients were divided into low/medium/severe injury groups. In addition, patients were divided into HRCT-positive and negative groups for further investigation with their BAEP results. The positive rates of BEAP for each group were observed, and the results were analyzed by Chi-square test (p < 0.05, regarded as statistical difference).@*RESULTS@#A total of 37 patients were included, including 21 males and 16 females. All of them were hospitalized patients with GCS score of 6-15 at the time of admission. The BAEP positive rate in the medium and severe injury group was 100%, which was significantly higher than that in the low injury group (27.27%) (p < 0.01). The rate of BEAP positivity was significantly higher in the HRCT-positive group (20/30, 66.7%) than in the HRCT-negative group (1/7, 14.3%) (p < 0.05). Twenty patients (54.05%) were both positive for BEAP and HRCT test, and considered to have auditory nerve damage. Six patients (16.22%) were both negative for BEAP and HRCT test, and 10 patients (27.03%) were BAEP-negative but HRCT-positive: all the 16 patients were considered as non-neurological injury. The rest 1 case (2.70%) was BAEP-positive but HRCT-negative, which we speculate may have auditory nerve concussion.@*CONCLUSION@#By way of BAEP combining with skull base HRCT, we may improve the accuracy of the diagnosis of auditory nerve injury. Such a diagnostic strategy may be beneficial to guiding treatment plans and evaluating prognosis.

INTRODUCTION@#We aimed to compare the early clinical manifestations, laboratory results and chest computed tomography (CT) images of COVID-19 patients with those of other community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) patients to differentiate CAP from COVID-19 before reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction results are obtained.@*METHODS@#The clinical and laboratory data and chest CT images of 51 patients were assessed in a fever observation ward for evidence of COVID-19 between January and February 2020.@*RESULTS@#24 patients had laboratory-confirmed COVID-19, whereas 27 individuals had negative results. No statistical difference in clinical features was found between COVID-19 and CAP patients, except for diarrhoea. There was a significant difference in lymphocyte and eosinophil counts between COVID-19 and CAP patients. In total, 22 (91.67%) COVID-19 patients had bilateral involvement and multiple lesions according to their lung CT images; the left lower lobe (87.50%) and right lower lobe (95.83%) were affected most often, and all lesions were located in the peripheral zones of the lung. The most common CT feature of COVID-19 was ground-glass opacity, found in 95.83% of patients, compared to 66.67% of CAP patients.@*CONCLUSION@#Diarrhoea, lymphocyte counts, eosinophil counts and CT findings (e.g. ground-glass opacity) could help to distinguish COVID-19 from CAP at an early stage of infection, based on findings from our fever observation ward.

Background: Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue archives in hospitals, biobanks, and others offer a vast collection of extensive, readily available specimens for molecular testing. Unfortunately, the use of tissue samples for molecular diagnostic applications is challenging; thus, the forensic pathology FFPE tissue archives in Africa have been a largely unexploited genetic resource, with the usability of DNA obtainable from these samples being unknown.Intervention: The study, conducted from January 2015 to August 2016, determined the usefulness of FFPE tissue as a reliable source of genetic material for successful post-mortem molecular applications and diagnostics. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue samples were collected and archived from autopsies conducted over 13 years in the forensic medicine department of the University of Pretoria (Pretoria, South Africa). Deoxyribonucleic acid from FFPE tissue samples and control blood samples was amplified by high-resolution melt real-time polymerase chain reaction before sequencing. The procurement parameters and fixation times were compared with the quantity and quality of the extracted DNA and the efficiency of its subsequent molecular applications.Lessons learnt: This study has shown that FFPE samples are still usable in molecular forensics, despite inadequate sample preparation, and offer immense value to forensic molecular diagnostics.Recommendations: FFPE samples fixed in formalin for more than 24 h should still be used in molecular diagnostics or research, as long as the primer design targets amplicons not exceeding 300 base pairs.

Objective: To offer the outcomes of the introduction of the technique applied in a first group of patients in Cuba, as well as its characterization, the values obtained for the study parameters and the most frequent diagnoses. Material and Methods: The high-resolution anorectal manometry records, which were performed at the CNCMA Motility Laboratory between September 2017 and June 2019, were reviewed. The record of the patients´ general data and specific discharge parameters were analyzed. The London Classification was applied for the diagnosis of the resulting type of anorectal dysfunction. Results: A total of 159 patients were studied. There was a predominance of females over 60 years of age. The most common indication for the test was fecal incontinence, followed by constipation. Obstetric history or history of surgical intervention were frequent in women. Type III dyssynergia was the most frequent type of dyssynergic defection. The most frequent diagnoses of anorectal dysfunction were disorders of anal tone and contractility. Conclusions: The introduction of the technique was successful. It allowed the identification of the damaged structures, which led to a faster and more timely therapeutic decision-making for the patient. The London Classification was used in the diagnosis of dysfunction(AU)

Introducción: La manometría esofágica de alta resolución es la prueba ideal para el diagnóstico de la acalasia y muestra la presencia de ondas terciarias o aperistalsis y el aumento de presión, con ausencia de relajación, del esfínter esofágico inferior. Objetivo: Evaluar la utilidad de la manometría esofágica de alta resolución en el diagnóstico y clasificación de la acalasia esofágica. Métodos: Se realizó una investigación descriptiva, trasversal, en el Centro Nacional de Cirugía de Mínimo Acceso entre octubre del 2018 y diciembre del 2019, en 46 pacientes con diagnóstico de acalasia esofágica. Se excluyeron aquellos con cirugía previa del esófago. Las variables incluidas fueron: edad, sexo, tiempo de evolución, síntomas y hallazgos manométricos. Para el análisis de las variables cuantitativas se emplearon medidas de tendencia central, media y de dispersión, la desviación estándar. Las frecuencias y proporciones fueron utilizadas para describir las variables cualitativas. Resultados: Predominó la acalasia tipo II, en el sexo femenino (57 por ciento). La disfagia fue el síntoma más frecuente (84, 76 y 100 por ciento en los tipos I, II y III, respectivamente). El 70 por ciento de los casos presentó más de un año de evolución de los síntomas. La media de la presión de relajación integrada estuvo por encima de 21 mmHg independientemente del tipo. No se encontraron pacientes con subtipos de la acalasia tipo III. Conclusiones: La manometría esofágica de alta resolución es útil para el diagnóstico y clasificación de la acalasia esofágica(AU)

Introduction: High-resolution esophageal manometry is the ideal test for the diagnosis of achalasia and shows the presence of tertiary waves or aperistalsis and increased pressure, in the absence of relaxation, of the lower esophageal sphincter. Objective: To assess the usefulness of high-resolution esophageal manometry in the diagnosis and classification of esophageal achalasia. Methods: A descriptive, cross-sectional investigation was carried out at the National Center for Minimal Access Surgery, between October 2018 and December 2019, in 46 patients with a diagnosis of esophageal achalasia. Those with previous esophageal surgery were excluded. The variables included were: age, sex, time of evolution, symptoms and manometric findings. For the analysis of the results, the percentage and measures of central tendency (arithmetic mean and standard deviation) were used. Results: Type II achalasia predominated in females (57 percent). Dysphagia was the most frequent symptom (84, 76, and 100 percent in types I, II, and III, respectively). 70 percent of the cases presented more than one year of evolution of the symptoms. Regarding the high-resolution manometry parameters, it was observed that regardless of the type, the mean integrated relaxation pressure was above 21 mmHg. No patients with type III achalasia subtypes were found. Conclusions: High-resolution esophageal manometry is useful for the diagnosis and classification of esophageal acalasia(AU)

ABSTRACT Objective: To evaluate changes in bone density and architecture in postmenopausal women with breast cancer (BC) and use of aromatase inhibitor (AI). Subjects and methods: Thirty-four postmenopausal women with BC, without bone metastasis, renal function impairment and who were not receiving bone-active drugs were selected from a population of 523 outpatients treated for BC. According to the presence of hormonal receptors, HER2 and Ki67, seventeen had positive hormonal receptors and received anastrozole (AI group), and seventeen were triple-negative receptors (non-AI group), previously treated with chemotherapy. Areal bone mineral density (aBMD) and vertebral fracture assessment (VFA) analyses were performed by DXA; vBMD and bone microarchitecture were evaluated by HR-pQCT. Fracture risk was estimated using the FRAX tool. Results: No patient referred previous low-impact fracture, and VFA detected one moderate vertebral fracture in a non-AI patient. AI patients showed lower aBMD and BMD T-scores at the hip and 33% radius and a higher proportion of osteoporosis diagnosis on DXA (47%) vs non-AI (17.6%). AI group had significantly lower values for vBMD at the entire, cortical and trabecular bone compartments, cortical and trabecular thickness and BV/TV. They also had a higher risk for major fractures and for hip fractures estimated by FRAX. Several HR-pQCT parameters evaluated at distal radius and distal tibia were significantly associated with fracture risk. Conclusion: AI is associated with alterations in bone density and microarchitecture of both the cortical and trabecular compartments. These findings explain the overall increase in fracture risk in this specific population.

Las manifestaciones clínicas más frecuentes son la tos y expectoración mucopurulenta por varios años en la mayoría de los pacientes, al que añadimos la disnea y hemoptisis, la auscultación pulmonar revela la presencia de crépitos en 17 pacientes (73,9%). La Tomografía de Tórax de Alta Resolución distingue dos tipos de bronquiectasias: La sacular o quística y la cilíndrica, de localización unilobar, bilobar y multilobar (difuso). La Espirometría Forzada fue indicada en 10 pacientes (43,5%) 7 mujeres y 3 varones, el Síndrome Bronquial Obstructivo fue el hallazgo más frecuente. La asociación de Tetraciclina con Metronidazol indicado en 9 pacientes (39,1%) mejoró el cuadro clínico. La fisiopatología de esta entidad clínica está sujeta a una constante actualización. CONCLUSIONES: en pacientes tosedores crónicos, las bronquiectasias deben tener prioridad diagnóstica, se trata de una patología antigua, pero de actualidad permanente.

The purpose of this document is to determine the main epidemiological and clinical characteristics of patients with bronchiectasis at the Lung Clinic. METHOD: observational, retrospective study. The medical records of 23 patients diagnosed with bronchial dilation were reviewed. RESULTS: the results of the 23 patients studied, with a mean age of 49,4 ± 3,87 years, 13 correspond to the female sex and 10 to the male sex, indicate that the time of evolution of the disease from the diagnosis of the initial pathology is: 17,3 ± 2,92 years. Tuberculosis is the main etiology in 15 patients (65,2%). The most frequent clinical manifestations were cough and mucopurulent expectoration of several years in most of the patients, to which we must add dyspnea and hemoptysis, pulmonary auscultation reveals the presence of crepitus in 17 patients (73,9%). High Resolution Chest Tomography distinguishes two types of bronchiectasis: the saccular or cystic and the cylindrical, the localization is unilobar, bilobar and multilobar (diffuse). Forced spirometry was indicated in 10 patients (43,5%), 7 women and 3 men, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is the main diagnosis. The association of Tetracycline with Metronidazole indicated in 9 patients (39,1%) had positive results. The pathophysiology of this clinical entity is subject to constant updating. CONCLUSIONS: in chronic coughing patients, bronchiectasis must have diagnostic priority, it is an old pathology, but it is permanently current

Objetivo: Determinar la factibilidad de la manometría de alta resolución para el estudio de las características de los trastornos motores esofágicos. Métodos: Se realizó una investigación descriptiva, transversal, en el Centro Nacional de Cirugía de Mínimo Acceso, entre septiembre de 2018 y diciembre de 2019, en 56 pacientes cubanos con diagnóstico de trastorno motor esofágico por manometría de alta resolución, con edades entre 18 y 80 años, que dieron su consentimiento para participar en el estudio. Se excluyeron pacientes con acalasia esofágica y los trastornos menores de la peristalsis. Las variables incluidas fueron: edad, sexo, diagnósticos manométricos y sus características, síntomas, tipos de unión esofagogástrica, diagnósticos imagenológicos o endoscópicos. Para el análisis de los resultados se empleó el porcentaje, medidas de tendencia central y ji cuadrado de Pearson de homogeneidad, con un nivel de significación p 8804; 0,05 y 95 por ciento de confiabilidad. Resultados: Predominó la contractilidad ausente (39,28 por ciento), el sexo femenino (58,9 por ciento) y la disfagia (66,07 por ciento). A la obstrucción al flujo de la unión esofagogástrica correspondió la media de presión de reposo del esfínter esofágico inferior más alta (43,28 mmHg) y la media de la presión de relación integrada por encima de 15 mmHg (38,88 mmHg). El esófago hipercontráctil presentó media de contractilidad distal integrada elevada (5564,25 mmHg/s/cm). Se comprobó la existencia de contracciones rápidas en el espasmo esofágico distal (media de 21,4 cm/ s). Conclusiones: La manometría de alta resolución es factible de ser empleada para el diagnóstico de los trastornos motores esofágicos(AU)

Introduction: High-resolution manometry is the gold standard for the study of esophageal motor disorders. Objective: A descriptive, cross-sectional research was carried out in el Centro Nacional de Cirugía de Mínimo Acceso, between September 2018 and December 2019, in 56 patients, diagnosed with esophageal motor disorder by high-resolution manometry, aged between 18 and 20 years, who gave their consent to participate in the study. Esophageal achalasia and minor peristalsis disorders were excluded. The variables included were: age, sex, manometric diagnoses and their characteristics, symptoms, types of esophagogastric junction, imaging or endoscopic diagnoses. For the analysis of the results, the percentage, measures of central tendency and Pearson's chi square of homogeneity were used, with a level of statistical significance 8804; 0.05 and 95 percent reliability. Development: Absent contractility (39,28 percent), female sex (58,9 percent) and dysphagia (66,07 percent) predominated. The obstruction to the flow of the esophagogastric junction corresponded to the highest mean resting pressure of the lower esophageal sphincter (43,28 mmHg) and the mean integrated pressure ratio above 15 mmHg (38,88 mmHg). The hypercontractile esophagus presented mean high integrated distal contractility (5564,25 mmHg/s/cm). Rapid contractions were found in distal esophageal spasm (mean 21,4 cm/s). Conclusions: High resolution manometry was feasible to be used for the diagnosis of major esophageal motor disorders(AU)

Resumen Introducción: La enfermedad por reflujo gastroesofágico (ERGE) refractaria puede conducir a complicaciones potenciales como la esofagitis persistente, estenosis esofágica, anillo de Schatzki y esófago de Barrett. Este estudio describe la motilidad en pacientes con ERGE refractaria y su relación con síntomas esofágicos. Método: Se realizó un estudio observacional analítico a partir de una cohorte retrospectiva en pacientes con diagnóstico de ERGE refractaria y síntomas esofágicos a quienes se les realizó manometría esofágica de alta resolución más impedanciometría. Se describen las características clínicas y demográficas, y la asociación entre los trastornos manométricos y los síntomas esofágicos. Resultados: Se incluyeron 133 pacientes (edad promedio: 54,1 ± 12,5 años). La pirosis y regurgitación (69,2 %) y la disfagia esofágica (13,5 %) fueron los síntomas más comunes. La motilidad normal (75,2 %), el aclaramiento completo del bolo (75,2 %) y la motilidad esofágica inefectiva (MEI) (18 %) fueron los hallazgos manométricos más frecuentes. La unión gastroesofágica tipos II y IIIb estuvieron presentes en el 35,3% y 33,8 % de los casos, respectivamente. La aperistalsis (3,8 %) y el esófago en martillo neumático (Jackhammer; 0,8 %) fueron infrecuentes. El aclaramiento incompleto del bolo se asoció con disfagia esofágica (p = 0,038) y a MEI (p = 0,008). Ningún síntoma esofágico se relacionó significativamente con trastornos de motilidad. Conclusiones: Los resultados de nuestro estudio sugieren que los trastornos de motilidad son infrecuentes en los pacientes con ERGE refractaria. Adicionalmente, sugieren que la presencia de alteraciones de motilidad esofágica no se relaciona con la presencia de síntomas esofágicos y, por tanto, que el tipo de síntoma presentado no permite predecir la existencia de dichos trastornos.

Abstract Introduction: Refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can lead to potential complications such as persistent esophagitis, esophageal stricture, Schatzki ring, and Barrett's esophagus. This study describes motility in patients with refractory GERD, and its association with esophageal symptoms. Materials and methods: An analytical observational study was carried out in a retrospective cohort of patients diagnosed with refractory GERD and esophageal symptoms who underwent high-resolution esophageal manometry and impedance testing. Clinical characteristics, demographics, and the association between motility disorders and esophageal symptoms are described. Results: 133 patients were included (mean age 54.1 ± 12.5 years). Heartburn and regurgitation (69.2%), and esophageal dysphagia (13.5%) were the most common symptoms. Normal motility (75.2%), complete bolus clearance (75.2%), and ineffective esophageal motility (IEM) (18%) were the most frequent manometric findings. Type II and IIIb gastroesophageal junction were observed in 35.3% and 33.8% of the cases, respectively. Esophageal aperistalsis (3.8%) and Jackhammer esophagus (0.8%) were rare findings. Incomplete bolus clearance was associated with esophageal dysphagia (p=0.038) and IEM (p=0.008). No esophageal symptoms were significantly related to motility disorders. Conclusions: The results of the present study suggest that motility disorders are rare in patients with refractory GERD. They also suggest that esophageal motility disorders are not associated with the presence of esophageal symptoms and, therefore, the type of symptom experienced does not allow predicting the existence of such disorders.

RESUMO Este trabalho apresenta os resultados da utilização de duas técnicas de investigação geoambiental em alta resolução: investigação passiva de vapores do solo e investigação com o uso de Membrane Interface Probe (MIP), em uma área contaminada por hidrocarbonetos de petróleo, localizada no município de Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro. O processo de gerenciamento ambiental da área iniciou-se em 2012 e contemplou as etapas preconizadas nas legislações vigentes. Os resultados obtidos a partir das investigações tradicionais foram insuficientes para a compreensão das características físicas e geoquímicas necessária para o sucesso das fases de diagnóstico e, consequentemente, da remediação. Portanto, duas investigações em alta resolução foram conduzidas com o objetivo de refinar o modelo conceitual de forma a atender adequadamente à Resolução CONAMA nº 420/09 e à Resolução CONEMA nº 44/12, permitindo ações futuras mais eficientes. A investigação passiva de vapores do solo utilizou amostradores compostos por materiais adsorventes granulares, encapsulados em uma membrana microporosa hidrofóbica e quimicamente inerte que permite a difusão dos vapores presentes no meio. Os resultados representam qualitativamente a presença de contaminação no subsolo. O MIP é uma ferramenta de direct push com medição em tempo real, que detecta a presença da contaminação tanto em meios insaturados quanto saturados inconsolidados. A partir dos resultados integrados, foi possível constatar que a distribuição de compostos orgânicos voláteis (volatile organic compounds (VOCs)) em água subterrânea ocorre de forma descontínua ao longo da área, sendo possível identificar cinco hotspots distintos e suas diferentes áreas fonte, incluindo uma região com presença de fase livre.

ABSTRACT This paper presents the results of two high-resolution site characterization (HRSC) techniques: passive investigation of soil vapors and investigation using Membrane Interface Probe (MIP), in an area contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbon, located in the municipality of Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro. The environmental management process in the area began in 2012 and contemplated the stages recommended by the current legislation. The results obtained from the traditional investigations were insufficient for the understanding of the physical and geochemical aspects for the success of the diagnostic phases and, consequently, the remediation phase. Therefore, it was conducted two high-resolution investigations with the objective of improving the conceptual model in order to comply adequately with CONAMA Resolution 420/09 and CONEMA Resolution 44/12, allowing future actions more efficient. The soil gas passive investigation used samplers composed of granular adsorbent materials, encapsulated in a hydrophobic and chemically inert microporous membrane that allows the diffusion of the vapors present in the media. The results qualitatively represent the presence of contamination in the subsoil. MIP is a direct push tool with real-time measurement, which detect the presence of contamination in both unsaturated and saturated media. From the integrated results, it was possible to verify that the distribution of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in groundwater occurs in a discontinuous way throughout the area. It was possible to identify five distinct hotspots and their different source areas, including a region with the presence of free-phase.

Abstract Introduction The present study aims to identify normal high-resolution anorectal manometry (HRAM) values and related factors in healthy Vietnamese adults. Methods The present cross-sectional study was conducted at the Viet Duc hospital, Hanoi, Vietnam, during April and May 2019. Healthy volunteers were recruited to participate in the study. Anorectal measurement values from the digestive tract, including pressure, were recorded. Results A total of 76 healthy volunteers were recruited. The mean functional anal canal length was 4.2 ± 0.5 cm, while the mean anal high-pressure zone length was 3.4 ± 0.5 cm. Themean defecation index was 1.4 ± 0.8, with values ranging from 0.3 to 5.0. The mean threshold volume to elicit the rectoanal inhibitory reflex (RAIR) was 18.1 mL. The mean rectal sensation values were 32.4mL, 81.6mL, and 159 mL for first sensation, desire to defecate, and urge to defecate, respectively. Dyssynergic patterns occurred in ~ 50% of the study participants and included mainly types I (27.6%) and III (14.6%). There were significant differences between male and female patients in terms of maximum anal squeeze pressure, maximum anal cough pressure, maximum anal strain pressure, maximum rectal cough pressure, and maximum rectal strain pressure (all p<0.01). Conclusions The present study establishes normal HRAM values in healthy Vietnamese adults, particularly regarding normal values of anorectal pressure and rectal sensation. Further studies that include larger sample sizes should be conducted to further confirm the constants and their relationships.

Resumo Introdução O presente estudo tem como objetivo identificar valores normais de manometria anorretal de alta resolução e fatores relacionados em adultos vietnamitas saudáveis. Métodos O presente estudo transversal foi conduzido no hospital Viet Duc, Hanói, Vietnã, durante abril e maio de 2019. Voluntários saudáveis foram recrutados para participar do estudo. Valores de medição anorretal, incluindo pressão do trato digestivo, foram registrados. Resultados Um total de 76 voluntários saudáveis foram recrutados. O comprimento funcional médio do canal anal foi de 4,2 ± 0,5 cm, enquanto o comprimento médio da zona anal de alta pressão foi de 3,4 ± 0,5 cm. O índice médio de defecação foi de 1,4 ± 0,8, com valores variando de 0,3 a 5,0. O volume limite médio para eliciar o reflexo inibitório retoanal (RAIR, sigla em inglês) foi de 18,1 mL. Os valores médios da sensação retal foram 32,4mL, 81,6mL e 159 mL para a primeira sensação, o desejo de defecar e a urgência de defecar, respectivamente. Os padrões dissinérgicos ocorreram em aproximadamente 50% dos participantes do estudo e incluíram principalmente os tipos I (27,6%) e III (14,6%). Houve diferenças significativas entre homens e mulheres na pressão de compressão anal máxima, pressão de tosse anal máxima, pressão de distensão anal máxima, pressão de tosse retal máxima e pressão de distensão retal máxima (todos p<0,01). Conclusões O presente estudo estabelece valores normais de HRAM em adultos vietnamitas saudáveis, particularmente no que diz respeito aos valores normais de pressão anorretal e sensação retal. Mais estudos que incluam tamanhos de amostra maiores devemser realizados a fim de confirmar melhor as constantes e suas relações.
