ABSTRACT

La Parálisis Cerebral (PC) es un conjunto de alteraciones motrices no progresivas en la población infantojuvenil, ocasionadas por lesión ­a nivel cerebral- de neuronas o fibras de esa vía, de sus aferencias o de las que la modulan; para su diagnóstico deben conocerse otras patologías también frecuentes y que pueden incidir simultánea o causalmente en la motricidad del paciente; la resultante sería disfunción motora tanto voluntaria como involuntaria, refleja o con propósito, de la postura y/o del tono muscular. Objetivo: detectar errores innatos metabólicos (EIM) que causan o se asocian con PC en una serie significativa. Métodos: Estudio descriptivo-interpretativo, se revisaron los expedientes clínicos del Centro de Parálisis Cerebral de Caracas, en cuyos diagnósticos se presentaron ambas alteraciones, entre los años 1988 y 2018. Resultados: De las 2.000 historias clínicas revisadas, el exámen clínico y las pruebas de laboratorio permitieron seleccionar 174 casos de EIM. Conclusiones: Se tipificaron los errores innatos metabólicos en diez formas clínicas distintas, se evidenciaron en pacientes con PC atendidos en un centro público de Caracas, es posible que la casuística sea varias veces mayor en Venezuela dado que ya no se aplica la pesquisa en los centros de atención pública(AU)


Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a set of non-progressive motor alterations in the child and youth population, caused by injury - at the brain level - of neurons or fibers of that pathway, their afferences or those that modulate it; for its diagnosis, other pathologies that are also frequent and that can simultaneously or causally affect the motor skills of the same patient must be known; The result would be both voluntary and involuntary motor dysfunction, reflected or with purpose, of posture and / or muscle tone. Objective: to detect inborn metabolic errors (EIM) that cause or are associated with CP in a significant series. Methods: Descriptive-interpretive study, we reviewed the clinical records of the Cerebral Palsy Center of Caracas, in whose diagnoses both alterations were presented, between the years 1988 and 2018. Results: Of the 2,000 clinical histories reviewed, the clinical examination and tests Laboratory tests allowed the selection of 174 cases of IMD. Conclusions: Inborn metabolic errors were typified in ten different clinical forms, they were evidenced in patients with CP treated in a public center in Caracas, it is possible that the casuistry is several times greater in Venezuela since the investigation is no longer applied in the centers of public attention(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introduction: A relevant aspect in pediatric anesthesia is the management of the airway. Anatomical differences in this population makes them more susceptible to devices designed for their management. Video laryngoscopy improves panoramic vision of the glottis. Objective: To compare the use of video laryngoscopy with direct laryngoscopy for orotracheal intubation in pediatric patients. Methods: With an observational descriptive design, 276 cases were studied, patients from 5 to 17 years old, undergoing planned surgery, with general anesthesia plus orotracheal intubation. The specialist decided on the handling device. The data was transcribed from the forms and analyzed with the SPSS 22.0 program. The descriptive analysis was based on median, mode, average, minimum value, maximum value. Standard deviation and range dispersion measurements. A value of p ≤ 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: The average age of the study was 9.83 years. With direct laryngoscopy 97.4% intubation was performed at the first attempt and with video laryngoscopy 88.4% (p = 0.003). In 94.2% of cases of direct laryngoscopy, a successful intubation was performed in less than 10 seconds, with video laryngoscopy it was 75.2% (p = 0.000). Complications occurred in 6.6% of intubations with video laryngoscopy versus 2.6% with conventional laryngoscopy (p = 0.103). 56.2% of specialists prefer direct laryngoscopy to manage a pediatric airway without predictors of difficulty. Conclusions: Video laryngoscopy provides additional support in routine airway management, always requiring prior knowledge and skills. The evidence to support one technique over another is insufficient.

ABSTRACT

Em 11 de março de 2020, a Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS) classificou a Doença pelo Coronavírus 2019 (COVID-19) como uma pandemia. Isso significa que o vírus está circulando em todos os continentes e há ocorrência de casos oligossintomáticos, o que dificulta a identificação. Deste modo, principalmente no hemisfério sul, onde está o Brasil, os países devem se preparar para o outono/inverno com o objetivo de evitar casos graves e óbitos. Em Goiás, a partir de 04 de fevereiro até 02 de junho, foram notificados à Vigilância Epidemiológica 39.225 casos de COVID-19. Já foram confirmados 4.334 (11,1%) casos, destes 4.223 (97,6%) confirmados por critério laboratorial, 101 (2,2%) pelo critério clinícoepidemiológico. Do total de casos notificados 10.715 (27,3%) foram descartados e 24.176 (61,6%) continuam como suspeitos


On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a pandemic. This means that the virus is circulating on all continents and there are oligosymptomatic cases, which makes it difficult to identify. Thus, especially in the southern hemisphere, where Brazil is located, countries should prepare for autumn/winter in order to avoid severe cases and deaths. In Goiás, from February 4 to June 2, 39,225 cases of COVID-19 were reported to the Epidemiological Surveillance. A total of 4,334 (11.1%) cases, of these 4,223 (97.6%) confirmed by laboratory criteria, 101 (2.2%) by the clinicoepidemiological criterion. Of the total number of reported cases 10,715 (27.3%) were discarded and 24,176 (61.6%) remain as suspects

ABSTRACT

La evidencia es controvertida sobre el rol que los niños juegan en la transmisión de COVID-19, pero se conoce que ellos, en su mayoría, tienen síntomas más leves que los adultos. Aunque los gobiernos vienen instaurando medidas de cierre de escuelas para disminuir la transmisión de la enfermedad, reducir la presión sobre los servicios asistenciales, y/o proteger a las poblaciones en riesgo, se deben considerar tanto los beneficios como los efectos adversos. Por ejemplo, los cierres de escuelas impiden el aprendizaje y amplían las brechas de desigualdad, crean limitaciones de acceso a niños y adolescentes con discapacidad o problemas de aprendizaje. La búsqueda estructurada identificó 36 artículos únicos, sólo 8 relevantes para responder la pregunta planteada, que se sumaron a otros diez identificados en la literatura gris o en síntesis rápidas previas. Adicionalmente, se buscó información basada en análisis de expertos o reportes sobre la implementación del cierre y/o reapertura de escuelas en diferentes países. El total de la evidencia incluida en esta síntesis proviene de 22 artículos principales (ver anexos 1, 2 y 3) y de 11 comentarios o reportes con datos importantes sobre el comportamiento de la epidemia en los niños, pero no valorados en calidad. En esta síntesis se consideran tres elementos que se abordaran de manera independiente: 1. la transmisibilidad de la infección por SARS-CoV-2 por los niños; 2. la gravedad de la enfermedad COVID-19 en niños; 3. los efectos inherentes al cierre de escuelas.

ABSTRACT

Dentre as doenças crônicas não transmissíveis, a hipertensão arterial sistêmica (HAS) e o diabetes mellitus (DM) são as mais frequentes e constituem um problema de saúde mundial. Diante da necessidade de implantação de programas de autocuidado voltados para essas doenças, o trabalho tem como objetivo validar um programa de autocuidado para pacientes diabéticos e hipertensos. Trata-se de um estudo de coorte prospectivo de uma população de 100 indivíduos que estavam em sala de espera. A coleta dos dados foi realizada por meio de questionários sobre diferentes temas, aplicados nos encontros, para avaliar o conhecimento dos pacientes no pré e no pós-teste. Somente algumas questões específicas de cada tema não apresentaram diferença significativa entre o pré e o pós-teste. No entanto, todos os temas abordados apresentaram incremento de conhecimento no pós-teste. Sendo assim, pode-se validar este programa de cuidado para pacientes diabéticos e hipertensos, pois promove incremento de conhecimento para os pacientes.


Among chronic non-transmissible diseases, systemic arterial hypertension (SAH) and diabetes mellitus (DM) are the most frequent and constitute a global health problem. In view of the need to implement self-care programs about these diseases, the objective of this study is to validate a self-care program for diabetic and hypertensive patients. It is a prospective cohort study of a population of 100 individuals who were in the waiting room. The data collection was done through questionnaires about different topics, that were applied in the meetings, to evaluate the knowledge of patients in the pretest and posttest. Only a few specific questions of each theme did not present a significant difference between the pretest and posttest. However, all the themes addressed presented posttest knowledge increment. Therefore, this self-care program can be validated for diabetic and hypertensive patients, because it promotes an increase of knowledge for these patients.

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY: The objective of this research is to relate the performance in three vertical jump events with morphological variables of the foot and stature. A total of 177 practitioners of 12 sporting events aged 24.5 ±8.0 years, with 71.01 ±13.00 kg of body mass, 1.71±0.09 m height, and BMI of 24.29±3.24 kg·m-2 were evaluated with an anthropometer in terms of foot length (FL), forefoot width (FW), navicular height (NH), and hindfoot width (HW). These variables were normalized to the height of the subjects. From the footprint record the arch index (AI) was obtained, which indicates the morphology of the medial longitudinal foot arch (MLFA). Performance was evaluated in three vertical jump events: countermovement jump (CMJ), squat jump (SJ), and drop jump (DJ), recording the height reached. FL, FW and HW show a weak positive correlation (r<0.4; p<0.05) with the heights achieved in the three types of jump. The stature is strongly associated with FL, FW and HW (r=0.8; r=0.7 and r=0.6; respectively; p<0.05) and with the height in CMJ, SJ, and DJ (r=0.37; r=0.41 and r=0.32, respectively, p<0.05). The only normalized morphological foot variable that maintained consistency in the correlations analysis was the normalized foot length (NFL) with CMJ (r = 0.2, p<0,05). The subjects whose left foot length was equivalent to 14 % of the stature jumped 27.94 ±6.63 cm, those with 15 % jumped 30.96 ±7.4 cm, and those with 16 % jumped 31.03 ±7.8 cm. FL, FW, HW, and stature are moderately correlated with performance in vertical jump events. However, after discarding the stature of the subjects, only the foot length maintained its relation with performance in CMJ.


RESUMEN: El objetivo de esta investigación fue relacionar el rendimiento en salto vertical con variables morfológicas del pie y estatura. 177 practicantes de 12 disciplinas deportivas de 24,5 ±8,0 años; 71,01 ±13,00 kg; 1,71 ±0,09 m, e IMC de 24,29 ±3,24 kg•m-2 fueron evaluados con un antropómetro obteniendo longitud de pie (FL), ancho de antepié (FW), altura navicular (NH) y ancho de retropié (HW). Estas variables fueron normalizadas a la estatura. Se midió la huella plantar obteniendo el índice del arco (AI), el cual indica la morfología del arco plantar longitudinal medial (MLFA). El rendimiento fue evaluado en tres pruebas de salto: salto con contramovimiento (CMJ), sentadilla con salto (SJ) y salto desde caída (DJ), registrando la altura alcanzada. FL, FW y HW mostraron una débil correlación positiva (r<0,4; p<0,05) con la altura alcanzada en los tres saltos. La estatura se asocia con FL, FW y HW (r=0,8; r=0,7 y r=0,6; respectivamente; p<0,05) y con la altura en CMJ, SJ y DJ (r=0,37; r=0,41 y r=0,32, respectivamente, p<0,05). La única variable normalizada del pie que mantuvo consistencia en el análisis de correlaciones fue la longitud del pie normalizada (NFL) con CMJ (r=0,2; p<0,05). Los sujetos cuyo pie tiene una longitud equivalente al 14 % de la estatura saltaron 27,94 ±6,63 cm, los que equivalen al 15 % saltaron 30,96 ±7,4 cm y quienes tuvieron un pie equivalente a un 16 % de la estatura saltaron 31,03 ±7,8 cm. FL, FW, HW y la estatura se correlacionan moderadamente con el rendimiento en salto vertical. Sin embargo, después de descartar la estatura de los sujetos, solamente la longitud del pie mantiene su relación con el rendimiento en CMJ.

ABSTRACT

Cephalofacial variables and the body height have priority importance in anthropological researches for a chronological study of the anthropological status of peoples. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the changeability of the cephalofacial variables and stature under the influence of exogenous factors during the over 80 years period-time. The realisation of the goal was done by comparing of some anthropometrical data (stature, 5 cephalofacial measurements and 2 cephalofacial indexes) done on the Albanian male population in three different time-line studies (Coon, 1950; Dhima, 1974-84; Rexhepi et al. 2018; cephalofacial measurements, 1997-2008, and stature, 2007-2017). Regarding the cephalofacial variables, some minor systematic differences were found between three different timeline studies, but without contradictions regarding the group's classification according to the corresponding scale. The major and meaningful differences between the three studies are noted in body height (Coon = 169.71 cm, Dhima=171.61cm; Rexhepi et al.=178.23 cm). The results of this study suggested that the timeline difference over 80 years, with all exogenous factor changes (environment, socioeconomic conditions, health, etc.) has a meaningful impact on body height, while not on the substantial changes on cephalofacial variables.


Las variables cefalofaciales y la altura del cuerpo tienen una importancia mayor en las investigaciones antropológicas para un estudio cronológico del estado antropológico de la población. El objetivo principal de esta investigación fue evaluar la capacidad de cambio de las variables cefalofaciales y la estatura de acuerdo a la influencia de factores exógenos durante un período de más de 80 años. El objetivo se llevó a cabo mediante la comparación de algunos datos antropométricos (estatura, 5 mediciones cefalofaciales y 2 índices cefalofaciales) realizados en la población masculina albanesa en tres estudios de línea de tiempo diferentes (Coon, 1929-30; Dhima, 1974-84; Mediciones cefalofaciales de Rexhepi et al., 1997-2008, y estatura, 2007-2017). Con respecto a las variables cefalofaciales, se encontraron algunas diferencias sistemáticas menores entre tres estudios de línea de tiempo diferentes, pero sin contradicciones con respecto a la clasificación del grupo, según la escala correspondiente. Las diferencias principales y significativas entre los tres estudios se observaron en la altura del cuerpo (Coon = 169,71 cm, Dhima = 171,61 cm; Rexhepi et al. = 178,23 cm). Los resultados de esta investigación sugieren que la diferencia en la línea de tiempo en un periodo de 80 años, junto a todos los cambios de factores exógenos (ambiente, condiciones socioeconómicas, salud, etc.) tienen un impacto significativo en la altura corporal, mientras que esto no ocurre en los cambios de las variables cefalofaciales.

ABSTRACT

The morphological variations of the mental foramen (MF) and mandibular foramen (MBF) have been studied for several years, and the prevalence and morphometric characteristics of double and triple foramina have been reported. The objective of this study was to establish the prevalence of variations in the MF and MBF, and to carry out a morphometric analysis of a Chilean population using digital panoramic radiographs. The study included 927 radiographs; the observed prevalence of double MF was 2.58 %, while the prevalence of double MBF was 1.51 %. No cases of triple foramina were found. In men, double MF was found more frequently in the left hemiarch (64.28 % of cases), while in women it was more frequent in the right hemiarch (80 %). Double MBF was found more frequently in the right hemiarch in women (80 % of cases), while the distribution between left and right in men was even. The mean area, width and height of the double MF were 5.46 mm2, 2.77 mm and 2.57 mm respectively. The means of the same morphometric measurements in double MBF were 6.37 mm2, 2.27 mm and 3.19 mm respectively. In both foramina, statistically significant differences were only found between the height of the foramen and the age of the subjects, with the observation that the greater the subject's age, the smaller the height. Dental surgeons must take these anatomical variants into consideration in clinical and surgical actions; timely diagnosis by radiograph is important to avoid possible complications.


Las variaciones morfológicas del foramen mental (FM) y mandibular (FMB) han sido estudiadas durante varios años, reportándose su prevalencia y las características morfométricas de forámenes dobles y triples. El objetivo de este estudio fue establecer la prevalencia de variaciones de los FM y FMB y realizar un análisis morfométrico a través de radiografías panorámicas digitales de una muestra de población chilena. En el estudio se incluyeron 927 radiografías y se observó una prevalencia de FM doble de 2,58 %, mientras que la prevalencia de FMB doble fue de 1,51 %. No se encontraron casos de forámenes triples. En hombres, el FM doble se encontró mayoritariamente en la hemiarcada izquierda (64,28 % de los casos), mientras que en mujeres fue en la hemiarcada derecha (80% de los casos). Para el caso de los FMB dobles, en mujeres se presentó mayoritariamente en la hemiarcada derecha (80 % de los casos), mientras que en hombres fue equitativo en ambos lados. El promedio del área, ancho y alto de los FM dobles fue de 5,46 mm2, 2,77 mm y 2,57 mm, respectivamente. Asimismo, los promedios de estas medidas morfométricas para el FMB doble fueron 6,37 mm2, 2,27 mm y 3,19 mm, respectivamente. Para ambos forámenes sólo se encontraron diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre el alto y la edad de los sujetos, observando que, a mayor edad menor era el alto del foramen. Los cirujanos dentistas deben tener en consideración estas variantes anatómicas para la realización de distintas acciones clínicas y quirúrgicas, su diagnóstico radiográfico oportuno es importante para prevenir posibles complicaciones.

The aim of this research was to determine the differences between the cadets (U15) water polo players of national teams of Montenegro and Croatia in the body composition and anthropometric characteristics. A sample of 32 subjects was divided into two sub-samples. The first sub-sample of the subjects was consisted of 16 water polo players of Montenegro national team of the average age 14.69±.48, the vice champions on the European Championships in Burgas (Bulgaria) 2019, while the other sub-sample was consisted of 16 water polo players of national team of Croatia of the average age of 14.75±.45, who occupied the eighth position on the European Championships in Burgas (Bulgaria) 2019. Water polo players were tested at the final preparations just before the European championship. Body composition and anthropometric characteristics were evaluated by a battery of 11 variables: body height, body weight, triceps skinfold, biceps skinfold, skinfold of the back, abdominal skinfold, upper leg skinfold, lower leg skinfold, body mass index, fat percentage and muscle mass. The standard central and dispersion parameters of all variables were calculated. The significance of the differences between the water polo players of two national teams in the variables for assessing body composition and anthropometric characteristics was determined by a t-test for independent samples. It was found that there are statistically significant differences in five variables, in three variables at p<0.01 (body height, triceps skinfold and biceps skinfold), and in two variables at p<0.05 (upper leg skinfold and muscle mass). It can be stated that the water polo players of Montenegro have statistically significantly higher triceps skinfold, biceps skinfold and upper leg skinfold, and statistically significantly lower body height and muscle mass than the water polo players of Croatia.


El objetivo de esta investigación fue determinar las diferencias entre los jugadores cadetes de waterpolo (U15) de los equipos nacionales de Montenegro y Croacia en la composición corporal y las características antropométricas. Se dividió una muestra de 32 jugadeores en dos submuestras. La primera submuestra consistió en 16 jugadores de waterpolo del equipo nacional de Montenegro con una edad promedio de 14,69 ± 0,48, los vicecampeones del Campeonato de Europa en Burgas (Bulgaria) 2019, mientras que la otra submuestra estuvo compuesta de 16 jugadores de waterpolo del equipo nacional de Croacia con una edad promedio de 14,75 ± 0,45, que ocuparon la octava posición en el Campeonato de Europa en Burgas (Bulgaria) 2019. Los jugadores de waterpolo fueron probados en los preparativos finales justo antes del campeonato europeo. La composición corporal y las características antropométricas se evaluaron mediante una batería de 11 variables: altura corporal, peso corporal, pliegue cutáneo del tríceps, pliegue cutáneo del bíceps, pliegue cutáneo de la espalda, pliegue abdominal, pliegue superior de la pierna, pliegue inferior de la pierna, índice de masa corporal, porcentaje de grasa y músculo masa. Se calcularon los parámetros estándar centrales y de dispersión de todas las variables. La importancia de las diferencias entre los jugadores de waterpolo de dos equipos nacionales en las variables para evaluar la composición corporal y las características antropométricas se determinó mediante una prueba t para muestras independientes. Se observó que existen diferencias estadísticamente significativas en cinco variables, en tres variables con p <0,01 (altura corporal, pliegue de tríceps y pliegue de bíceps), y en dos variables con p <0,05 (pliegue superior de la pierna y masa muscular). Los jugadores de waterpolo de Montenegro tienen pliegues cutáneos de tríceps estadísticamente significativamente más altos, pliegues cutáneos de bíceps y pliegues superiores de las piernas, y una altura corporal y masa muscular estadísticamente significativamente menor que los jugadores de waterpolo de Croacia.

ABSTRACT

Sirenomelia or mermaid syndrome is an extremely rare congenital lethal malformation with a frequency between 1.5 and 4.2 per 1 000 000 pregnancies.The association of sirenomelia with the VACTERL association is very rare, with twenty cases reported in the literature and only two cases with VACTERL-H. We present two cases of sirenomelia, type I and type II associated with VACTERL-H and VACTERL syndromes and we review the literature. First time pregnancy women aged 15 and 40 years, without harmful habits and diseases, where between 25-27 gestational week (GW) the prenatal study identifies malformative fetus and the pregnancy is interrupted by medical evidence. The fetopathological examination in the first case identified sirenomelia type I associated with myelomeningocele, hydrocephalus, anal imperforation, single umbilical artery, bilateral renal agenesis, ureteral and bladder agenesis, tracheo-esophageal fistule, agenesis of external genitals, monkey fold of the left palm of the hand - VACTERL-H. In the second case, where genetic testing is normal, sirenomelia type II associated with agenesis of external genitalia, anal imperforation, myelomeningocele, dolichocrania, macroglossia, low set ears, left preauricular skin tag, long philtrum, lung hypoplasia, split cadiac apex, single umbilicalis artery, blind end colon, hepatomegaly, accessory spleen, polycystic horseshoe kidney, uterine and vaginal agenesis, presence of two ovaries and duodenal stenosis - VACTERL association. This two cases, lead us to believe that sirenomelia and the VACTERL association are probably different manifestations of a pathogenetic process leading to disorders of blastogenesis at different levels during embryonic development.


La sirenomelia es una malformación congénita y excepcionalmente rara, con una frecuencia entre 1,5 y 4,2 en un millón de embarazos. La combinación de la sirenomelia con el síndrome de VACTERL es igualmente rara. La literatura especializada informa sobre la existencia de una veintena de casos solamente; en lo que respecta a su asociación con el síndrome de VACTERL-H se conocen solo dos casos. Luego de realizar una revisión de la literatura presentamos dos casos de sirenomelia asociada con los síndromes de VACTERL-H y de VACTERL En el estudio se analizaron los primeros embarazos de dos mujeres, edad de 15 y de 40 años, respectivamente, ambas mujeres completamente sanas y sin hábitos viciosos. Entre la vigésima quinta y la vigésima séptima semana gestacional (SG) del embarazo ambas mujeres, el análisis prenatal comprueba la existencia de malformación del feto debido a lo cual los embarazos fueron interrumpidos por prescripción médica. El análisis fetopatológico del primer caso comprueba la existencia de sirenomelia de tipo I asociada con mielomeningocele, hidrocefalia, atresia anal, arteria umbilical única, agenesia bilateral de los riñones y de los ureteres que transportan la orina desde los riñones hasta la vejiga, fístula traqueoesofágica, agenesia de los órganos genitales externos, línea simiesca en la palma de la mano izquierda - VACTERLH. En el segundo caso, en que el análisis genético ha resultado normal, se observó la presencia de sirenomelia de tipo II asociada con agenesia de los órganos genitales externos, atresia anal, mielomeningocele, dolicocrania, macroglosia, orejas bajas, filtrum alargado, hipoplasia pulmonar, ápice cardíaco escindido, arteria umbilical única, colon terminado en ciego, bazo accesorio, poliquistosis renal, riñón en herradura, agenesia vaginal y de útero, presencia de dos ovarios y estenosis duodenal - VACTERL asociación. Los dos casos investigados permiten llegar a la conclusión de que la sirenomelia y su combinación con el síndrome de VACTERL probablemente sean manifestaciones diferentes de un proceso patogenético que conlleva la alteración de la blastogénesis en distintos niveles durante el proceso del desarrollo embrionario.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: The current context of multiprofessional approach in health is based on quality of care and patient safety, with the key contribution of the dentist in the hospital team to improve the health of hospitalized patients. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the systemic and buccal profile of patients treated in a medical clinic of a University Hospital from the Brazilian Public Health System, aiming to provide information for guiding dental care in the multidisciplinary attendance in the hospital setting. METHODS: Retrospective observational study carried out on 104 clinical records with data collection about general characteristics, systemic alterations, habits, oral situation and dental treatments of hospitalized patients attended by the dentist. RESULTS: There was a high frequency of hypertensive patients (36.5%) and with cardiac problems (33.6%). A significant association between diabetes (60%) and hypertension (50%) in the age group from 60 to 75 years of age was observed. For most patients, the frequency of oral hygiene was less than three times a day (54.3%), without flossing (85.7%). Biofilm (73.3%), dental calculus (70.5%), prosthesis use (25.7%), with poor hygiene (14.3%) and prosthetic stomatitis (8.6%) were recorded. Among the treatments performed by dentist, basic periodontal therapy (71.4%) and exodontia (39%) were noteworthy. CONCLUSION: The high frequency of biofilm presence, dental calculus, prosthesis with poor hygiene and basic periodontal therapy performed during the hospitalization denote the need for dental care with preventive activities.


INTRODUÇÃO: O contexto atual de abordagem multiprofissional em saúde fundamenta-se na qualidade do atendimento e segurança ao paciente, com contribuição importante do cirurgião-dentista na equipe hospitalar para melhoria de saúde dos hospitalizados. OBJETIVO: Caracterizar o perfil sistêmico e bucal de pacientes atendidos em clínica médica de um Hospital Universitário do Sistema de Saúde Pública do Brasil, visando fornecer subsídios no direcionamento da assistência odontológica ao atendimento multidisciplinar em âmbito hospitalar. MÉTODOS: Foi realizado estudo observacional retrospectivo em 104 fichas clínicas com coleta de dados sobre características gerais, alterações sistêmicas, hábitos, situação bucal e tratamentos odontológicos de pacientes internados, atendidos pelo odontólogo. RESULTADOS: Verificou-se alta frequência de pacientes hipertensos (36,5%) e com problemas cardíacos (33,6%). Observou-se associação significativa de diabetes (60%) e hipertensão (50%) na faixa etária de 60 a 75 anos de idade. Para a maioria dos pacientes, a higiene bucal foi realizada menos que três vezes ao dia (54,3%), sem uso de fio dental (85,7%). Biofilme (73,3%), cálculo dental (70,5%), uso de próteses (25,7%), com higiene deficiente (14,3%), e estomatite protética (8,6%) foram registradas. Dentre os tratamentos realizados, destacam-se a terapia básica periodontal (71,4%) e exodontias (39%). CONCLUSÃO: A alta frequência de presença de biofilme, cálculo dental, próteses com higiene deficiente e a terapia básica periodontal executada durante o período de internação denotam a necessidade de atuação odontológica com atividades preventivas.

ABSTRACT

Em 11 de março de 2020, a Organização Mundial da Saúde (OMS) classificou a Doença pelo Coronavírus 2019 (COVID-19) como uma pandemia. Isso significa que o vírus está circulando em todos os continentes e há ocorrência de casos oligossintomáticos, o que dificulta a identificação. Deste modo, principalmente no hemisfério sul, onde está o Brasil, os países devem se preparar para o outono/inverno com o objetivo de evitar casos graves e óbitos. Em Goiás, a partir de 04 de fevereiro até esta data, foram notificados à Vigilância Epidemiológica 17.243 casos de COVID-19. Dos quais 1.114 (6,4%) foram confirmados, 4.029 (23,3%) descartados e 12.100 (70,3%) continuam como suspeitos nos sistemas de informação (ESUS VE e SIVEP Gripe) aguardando encerramento pelos municípios de residência


On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a pandemic. This means that the virus is circulating on all continents and there are oligosymptomatic cases, which makes it difficult to identify. Thus, especially in the southern hemisphere, where Brazil is located, countries should prepare for autumn/winter in order to avoid severe cases and deaths. In Goiás, from February 4 to this date, 17,243 cases of COVID-19 were reported to the Epidemiological Surveillance. Of which 1,114 (6.4%) were confirmed, 4,029 (23.3%) discarded and 12,100 (70.3%) remain as suspects in the information systems (ESUS VE and SIVEP Gripe) awaiting closure by the municipalities of residence.
