ABSTRACT

Abstract We investigated the vasodilatory effects of Hymenaea rubriflora Ducke stem bark extract (HRHAc). Vascular reactivity of the aortic rings of Wistar rats was tested by in vitro cumulative doses (0.1 - 729 µg/mL). Rats (n=5) were treated with 25 (G25), 50 (G50) and 100 (G100) mg/ kg of HR-HAc or saline (control group - CG) for four weeks. An in vitro assay resulted in dose-dependent relaxation of the aortic rings with functional endothelium, which was inhibited in the presence of L-NAME. Rings of the treated animals increased acetylcholine relaxing potency at all doses, with a greater effect on G50 (pD2 = 7.8±0.1, Emax = 95.6±1.1) and a decreased contractile potency to phenylephrine in G25 (pD2 = 6.9±0.06, Emax = 61.5±6.0%) and G50 (pD2= 6.6±0.06, Emax = 71.0±8.5%) when compared to the CG in the presence and absence of endothelium (pD2= 6.4± 0.1, 6.4±0.1 and 6.9±0.1, respectively). Cumulative doses of nitroprusside resulted in increased relaxing potency in all treated groups and maintained Emax at 100%. It is concluded that HR-HAc has vasorelaxant capacity and inhibitory vascular contraction activity applied either directly to aortic rings or after treatment with in vivo supplementation, which places this extract as a potential nutraceutical or pharmacological agent for treating diseases associated with vascular dysfunction.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: A ocorrência frequente de eventos adversos durante a internação hospitalar demanda meios proativos de gerenciamento de riscos, incluindo a verificação de rastreadores/triggers. Objetivo: verificar os fatores associados aos triggers e eventos adversos na internação pediátrica. Material e Métodos: Pesquisa transversal embasada na metodologia do Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), por meio da aplicação do Paediatric Trigger Tool (PTT) a uma amostra (n=194) de prontuários de pacientes pediátricos de um hospital do Centro-Oeste do Brasil. Foi realizada análise estatística descritiva, inferencial e regressão de Poisson. Resultados: Mais da metade (n=107; 55,15%) dos pacientes apresentou pelo menos um trigger na internação. Foram identificados 204 triggers/gatilhos, com maior ocorrência de queda de hemoglobina/hematócrito (9,80%), queda de saturação de oxigênio (9,80%) e aumento de marcadores de funções renais (9,20%). Do total de gatilhos, 64 (31,37%) eventos adversos foram confirmados, os quais foram classificados majoritariamente como dano temporário com necessidade de suporte ao paciente (65,62%). O tempo de internação (p-valor=0,004) e o caráter da internação (p-valor<0,001) foram variáveis associadas à ocorrência de triggers. Caráter de internação e admissões provenientes de outras instituições foram preditores na ocorrência de triggers e eventos adversos. Discussão: O estudo encontrou 31,37% dos triggers resultando em danos ao paciente, a detecção precoce é essencial na segurança do paciente pediátrico, internações prolongadas estão ligadas a infecções e eventos adversos, transferências de pacientes exigem medidas de segurança rigorosas e eficazes. Conclusões: internações prolongadas e crianças admitidas via transferência merecem atenção a triggers e/ou eventos adversos concretizados.


Introduction: The frequent occurrence of adverse events during hospital admission demands proactive means of risk management, including checking trackers/triggers. Objective: to verify the factors associated with triggers and adverse events in pediatric hospitalization. Material and Methods: Cross-sectional research based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) methodology, through the application of the Pediatric Trigger Tool (PTT) to a sample (n= 194) from medical records of pediatric patients from a hospital in the Center-West of Brazil. Descriptive, inferential statistical analysis and Poisson regression were performed. Results: More than half (n=107; 55.15%) of patients had at least one trigger upon admission. 204 triggers were identified, with the highest occurrence of a drop in hemoglobin/hematocrit (9.80%), a drop in oxygen saturation (9.80%) and an increase in kidney function markers (9.20%). Of the total triggers, 64 (31.37%) adverse events were confirmed, which were mostly classified as temporary damage requiring patient support (65.62%). The length of stay (p-value=0.004) and the nature of the hospitalization (p-value<0.001) were variables associated with the occurrence of triggers. Character of hospitalization and admissions from other institutions were predictors of the occurrence of triggers and adverse events. Discussion: The study found 31.37% of triggers resulting in harm to the patient, early detection is essential in pediatric patient safety, prolonged hospitalizations are linked to infections and adverse events, patient transfers require rigorous and effective safety measures. Conclusions: Prolonged hospitalizations and children admitted via transfer deserve attention to triggers and/or adverse events.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: el SARS-CoV-2 causa daño multiorgánico, con predilección al epitelio respiratorio. Los estudios de imagen en tórax han sido determinantes en muchas patologías y, durante la reciente pandemia, no fue excepción. En el seguimiento con tomografía de tórax post COVID-19 en varias series, se ha observado persistencia de lesiones al egreso y a lo largo de varios meses. El objetivo del trabajo fue describir los hallazgos tomográficos en pacientes con seguimiento hasta un año post egreso hospitalario por COVID-19 moderado-grave. Material y métodos: estudio retrospectivo, observacional, de pacientes hospitalizados por COVID-19 moderado-grave de marzo 2020 a marzo 2022 en el hospital del ISSSTE, Chiapas-México; con prueba RT-PCR SARS-CoV-2 positiva, TC de hospitalización y de seguimiento posterior al egreso (0-4 meses; 4-8 meses; 8-12 meses). Se utilizó la terminología de la sociedad Fleischner. Además, se evaluó la extensión por lóbulo afectado (>75%, 75-50%, 50-25%, <25%). Resultados: Se estudiaron 27 pacientes, 74% hombres, edad promedio 56 años. El patrón tomográfico predominante al ingreso fue el mixto con 56% y extensión pulmonar >75%; vidrio despulido 30% y 11% consolidación. Al cuarto y octavo mes el patrón mixto fue el más frecuente, al doceavo mes persistía en el 33% de los pacientes y en el 30% de los casos la tomografía fue normal. Conforme pasaron los meses, la extensión del daño fue limitándose. Conclusión: el seguimiento con tomografía en COVID-19 moderado-grave es indiscutible. Permite identificar con precisión el patrón tomográfico en los diferentes momentos de la enfermedad, optimizar el tratamiento y disminuir las secuelas.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To investigate the current application status and implementation difficulties of extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) in children with sudden cardiac arrest. Methods: This cross-sectional survey was conducted in 35 hospitals. A Children's ECPR Information Questionnaire on the implementation status of ECPR technology (abbreviated as the questionnaire) was designed, to collect the data of 385 children treated with ECPR in the 35 hospitals. The survey extracted the information about development of ECPR, the maintenance of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) machine, the indication of ECPR, and the difficulties of implementation in China. These ECPR patients were grouped based on their age, the hospital location and level, to compare the survival rates after weaning and discharge. The statistical analysis used Chi-square test and one-way analysis of variance for the comparison between the groups, LSD method for post hoc testing, and Bonferroni method for pairwise comparison. Results: Of the 385 ECPR cases, 224 were males and 161 females. There were 185 (48.1%) survival cases after weaning and 157 (40.8%) after discharge. There were 324 children (84.2%) receiving ECPR for cardiac disease and 27 children (7.0%) for respiratory failure. The primary cause of death in ECPR patients was circulatory failure (82 cases, 35.9%), followed by brain failure (80 cases, 35.0%). The most common place of ECPR was intensive care unit (ICU) (278 cases, 72.2%); ECPR catheters were mostly inserted through incision (327 cases, 84.9%). There were 32 hospitals (91.4%) had established ECMO emergency teams, holding 125 ECMO machines in total. ECMO machines mainly located in ICU (89 pieces, 71.2%), and the majority of hospitals (32 units, 91.4%) did not have pre-charged loops. There were no statistically significant differences in the post-withdrawal and post-discharge survival rates of ECPR patients among different age groups, regions, and hospitals (all P>0.05). The top 5 difficulties in implementing ECPR in non-ICU environments were lack of ECMO machines (16 times), difficulty in placing CPR pipes (15 times), long time intervals between CPR and ECMO transfer (13 times), lack of conventional backup ECMO loops (10 times), and inability of ECMO emergency teams to quickly arrive at the site (5 times). Conclusion: ECPR has been gradually developed in the field of pediatric critical care in China, and needs to be further standardized. ECPR in non-ICU environment remains a challenge.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: entender como mães vivenciaram o cuidado com seus filhos prematuros em casa em meio à pandemia da COVID-19. Método: estudo qualitativo, descritivo, desenvolvido entre janeiro e dezembro de 2021, mediante entrevistas remotas com 25 mães de prematuros, após um mês da alta hospitalar, com Análise de Conteúdo temática. Resultados: desvelaram-se preocupações maternas referentes ao cuidado com o filho na pandemia, além de influências do período pandêmico na rotina familiar; acompanhamento do seguimento das crianças nos serviços de saúde descontinuado; sobrecarga e medo. Esses aspectos podem expor o bebê a maior risco de alterações do seu desenvolvimento, bem como afetar a autoeficácia materna, uma vez que o receio das complicações decorrentes do nascimento pré-termo associou-se à angústia de possível contaminação pelo coronavírus. Conclusão: a prematuridade vivenciada em meio à pandemia COVID-19 repercutiu negativamente tanto no cotidiano da vida familiar como no acompanhamento de saúde do prematuro.


Objective: to understand how mothers experienced the care of their preterm infants at home in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Method: qualitative, descriptive study, developed between January and December 2021, through remote interviews with 25 mothers of preterm infants, one month after hospital discharge, with thematic Content Analysis. Results: maternal reoccupations related to child care in the pandemic were revealed, as well as influences of the pandemic period on family routine; monitoring of children in discontinued health services; overload and fear. These aspects may expose the baby to a greater risk of developmental alterations, as well as affect maternal self-efficacy, since the fear of complications resulting from preterm birth was associated with the anguish of possible contamination by the coronavirus. Conclusion: the prematurity experienced in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact both on the daily life of the family and on the health monitoring of preterm infants.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUÇÃO: Cirurgias colorretais são procedimentos complexos, associados a maiores taxas de complicações e readmissões que procedimentos realizados em outros sítios cirúrgicos. Atualmente, medidas padronizadas visando à recuperação precoce de pacientes submetidos a cirurgias colorretais são adotadas com o objetivo de reduzir o tempo de internação hospitalar. A redução do tempo de internação, entretanto, apesar de ser considerada um desfecho positivo, pode propiciar risco de atraso de diagnóstico e deterioração clínica já que as complicações, geralmente acontecem fora do ambiente hospitalar, dificultando a avaliação e acompanhamento destes pacientes. OBJETIVO: O objetivo do presente estudo foi desenvolver um plano de seguimento pós-alta eletrônico, acessível em smartphones, para monitorar remotamente os sinais e sintomas de pacientes em pós-operatório de cirurgias colorretais, avaliando os desfechos de taxa de admissão no setor de emergência e taxa de complicações graves (Clavien-Dindo 3 a 5), no período de quinze dias de pós-operatório. MATERIAL E MÉTODOS: O projeto foi desenvolvido em duas etapas, sendo a primeira a estruturação da Jornada Digital, com a criação de plataforma com algoritmo para identificação de sintomas e direcionamento de condutas e a segunda a validação do programa em um estudo piloto. Foram incluídos no estudo pacientes a serem submetidos a cirurgias colorretais oncológicas, com idade entre 18 e 80 anos. O estudo foi conduzido nas dependências do A.C.Camargo Cancer Center. O monitoramento dos pacientes e o reporte de sinais e sintomas pelos pacientes foram realizados via plataforma de monitoramento remoto, utilizando-se de smartphone ou computador. RESULTADOS: No estudo piloto, em cada uma das três fases de avaliação dos dados obtidos, algoritmo e instrumento para coleta de dados foram reestruturados, visando atingir maior sensibilidade e especificidade na detecção de complicações pela plataforma, bem como maior satisfação dos pacientes em acompanhamento. A capacidade de detecção de complicações aumentou a cada fase de análise e ajuste, sendo que após a terceira e última fase de ajustes tivemos 45(71,4%) eventos adversos reportados, sendo que destes, 12(19%) foram sintomas classificados como graves. Nessa amostra , a solução digital foi capaz de identificar 3(4,8%) complicações reais com sensibilidade de 75%, especificidade de 84%, acurácia de 83%, valor preditivo positivo de 25% e valor preditivo negativo de 98%. Tivemos ainda , 5(7,9%) erros de preenchimentos detectados e 1(1,6%) complicações não detectadas pela plataforma, por erro de preenchimento do questionário de avaliação diária. A nossa taxa de reinternação por indicação da plataforma, nessa amostra foi de 2(3,2%) e de admissão na emergência, considerando encaminhamento ou não da plataforma foi de 8(12,7%). A adesão completa ao programa de monitoramento foi de 83%, com nota NPS variando de 69 a 95, sendo a maior nota obtida na última fase de avaliação. CONCLUSÃO: A plataforma digital criada mostrou-se segura, com altas taxas de adesão e boa aceitação pelos pacientes, mas ainda precisa ser ajustada com a intenção de reduzir custos de encaminhamento e admissão no setor de emergência.


INTRODUCTION: Colorectal surgeries are complex procedures, associated with higher rates of complications and readmissions than procedures at other surgical sites. Currently, standardized procedures aim the early recovery of patients treated for colorectal surgeries in order to reduce the length of hospital stay. The reduction in hospitalization time, however, despite being considered a positive result, may lead to a risk , since complications generally occur outside the hospital environment, making it difficult to assess and monitor these patients. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to develop a mobile health app , accessible on smartphones, to remotely monitor the signs and symptoms of patients in the postoperative period of colorectal surgeries, evaluating the outcomes of admission rate in the emergency department and rate of severe complications. (Clavien-Dindo 3 to 5) within a fifteen-day postoperative period. METHODS: The project was developed in two steps, the first being the structuring of the Digital Journey, with the creation of a platform with a decision algorithm for identifying symptoms and directing conducts, and the second the validation of the program in a pilot study. Patients aged between 18 and 80 years old, who were to undergo oncological colorectal surgeries, were included in the study. The study was conducted on the premises of the A.C.Camargo Cancer Center. Monitoring of patients and reporting of signs and symptoms by patients were performed via a remote monitoring platform, using a smartphone or computer. RESULTS: In the pilot study, in each of the three evaluation phases of the data obtained, the decision algorithm and the instrument for data collection were restructured, aiming to achieve greater sensitivity and specificity in the detection of complications by the platform, as well as greater patient satisfaction. The ability to detect complications increased at each analysis and adjustment phase, and after the third and final phase of adjustments, 45 (71.4%) adverse events were reported, of which 12 (19%) were symptoms classified as high grade. In this sample, the digital solution was able to identify 3 (4.8%) real complications with a sensitivity of 75%, specificity of 84%, accuracy of 83%, positive predictive value of 25% and negative predictive value of 98%. We also had, 5(7.9%) errors in filling out detected and 1(1.6%) complications not detected by the platform, due to error in filling out the daily assessment questionnaire. Our rehospitalization rate by indication of the platform, in this sample was 2 (3.2%) and admission to the emergency room, considering referral or not from the platform, was 8 (12.7%). Complete adherence to the monitoring program was 83%, with an NPS score ranging from 69 to 95, the highest score obtained in the last evaluation phase. CONCLUSION: The a mobile health app created was proved to be safe, with high adherence rates and good acceptance by patients, but it still needs to be adjusted with the intention of reducing costs of referral and admission to the emergency department

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Mostrar las características y seguimiento de la dilatación del tracto urinario en recién nacidos con infección del tracto urinario. Métodos: Estudio observacional, descriptivo, realizado desde 1992 hasta 2019, en neonatos ingresados con infección del tracto urinario. A todos se les realizó ultrasonido renal y uretrocistografía miccional. Se analizaron las características clínicas y de radioimagen de presentación en el seguimiento de la dilatación del tracto urinario. Resultados: Se estudiaron 403 pacientes. La mediana de seguimiento fue de 13 meses. El ultrasonido renal resultó positivo para dilatación del tracto urinario en 148 (36,7 por ciento). Predominaron los grados de dilatación ligera (5-10 mm.) sobre grados moderados y severos. En 38 casos (9,4 por ciento) la dilatación del tracto urinario se asoció a reflujo vésico-ureteral. La condición más común fue la dilatación transitoria con una mediana de desaparición de la dilatación 5 meses. Hubo asociación estadística significativa de la desaparición de la dilatación del tracto urinario con el grado de esta y entre aquellos casos calificados de transitoria con los otros portadores de alguna anomalía del tracto urinario que también tuvieron desaparición de la dilatación en algún momento de su evolución. Conclusiones: Cerca de una tercera parte de los neonatos con infección del tracto urinario tuvieron dilatación del tracto urinario en ultrasonido renal, con predominio de grado ligero, como probable expresión de una anomalía del tracto urinario subyacente. Con frecuencia ocurre resolución de la dilatación del tracto urinario en aquellos casos no asociados con anomalía del tracto urinario, habitualmente dentro del primer año de vida(AU)


OBjective: To show the characteristics and follow-up of urinary tract dilatation in neonates with urinary tract infection. Methods: Observational, descriptive study performed from 1992 to 2019, in neonates admitted with urinary tract infection. All underwent renal ultrasound and voiding urethrocystography. The clinical and radioimaging features of presentation were analyzed in the follow-up of urinary tract dilatation, Results: 403 patients were studied. The median follow-up was 13 months. Renal ultrasound was positive for urinary tract dilatation in 148 (36.7 percent). Mild degrees of dilatation (5-10 mm) predominated over moderate and severe degrees. In 38 cases (9.4 percent) urinary tract dilatation was associated with vesico-ureteral reflux. The most common condition was transient dilatation with a median disappearance of dilatation 5 months. There was significant statistical association of the disappearance of urinary tract dilatation with the degree of dilatation and between those cases qualified as transient with the other carriers of some urinary tract anomaly who also had disappearance of dilatation at some point in their evolution. Conclusions: About one third of neonates with urinary tract infection had dilatation of the urinary tract on renal ultrasound, predominantly of mild degree, probably expression of an underlying anomaly. Resolution of dilatation frequently occurs in those cases not associated with urinary tract anomaly, usually within the first year of life(AU)

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the influence of blood pressure control after discharge on prognosis of patients with acute aortic syndrome (AAS) complicated with hypertension who underwent thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). Methods: This is a retrospective case analysis. Patients diagnosed with AAS complicated with hypertension and undergoing TEVAR in Northern Theater Command General Hospital from June 2002 to December 2021 were consecutively enrolled. Average systolic blood pressure (SBP) and the occurrence of endpoint events were recorded at one month, one year and every 2 years after TEVAR. According to the patients' average SBP, patients with average SBP<140 mmHg (1 mmHg=0.133 kPa) or<150 mmHg were divided into the target blood pressure achievement group, and the others were divided into target blood pressure non-achievement group. Endpoint events included all-cause death, aortic death, stroke, renal insufficiency, aortic related adverse events and a composite of these events (overall clinical adverse events), and re-accepting TEVAR. The incidence of endpoint events was compared between the two groups at each follow-up period. Results: A total of 987 patients were included, aged (55.7±11.7) years, including 779 male (78.9%). When the cutoff value was 140 mmHg, the rate of average target SBP achievement was 71.2% (703/987) at one month, 66.7% (618/927) during 1st to 12th month and 65.1% (542/832) from the first year to the third year after TEVAR. The proportion of patients taking≥2 antihypertensive agents was higher in the group of target blood pressure non-achievement group than the target blood pressure achievement group after TEVAR at 1 month (74.3% (211/284) vs.65.9% (463/703), P=0.010) and during 1st to 12th month (71.5% (221/309) vs. 63.6% (393/618), P=0.016). There were no statistical differences in the all-cause deaths, stroke, aortic related adverse events, and repeat TEVAR between the two groups (All P>0.05) during above follow-up periods. When the cutoff value was 150 mmHg, the rate of target SBP achievement was 89.3% (881/987) at one month, 85.2% (790/927) during 1st to 12th month and 85.6%(712/832) from the first year to the third year after TEVAR. The incidence of clinical total adverse events (8.8% (12/137) vs. 4.2% (33/790), P=0.021) and repeat TEVAR (4.4% (6/137) vs. 1.0% (8/790), P=0.003) in target blood pressure non-achievement group were significantly higher than the target blood pressure achievement group during 1st to 12th month after TEVAR. The incidence of all-cause deaths (5.8% (7/120) vs. 2.4% (17/712), P=0.037) in the target blood pressure non-achievement group was significantly higher than the target blood pressure achievement group from the first year to the third year follow-up period, but there were no statistical differences in the incidence of clinical total adverse events between the two group (P>0.05). Conclusion: Among TEVAR treated AAS patients complicated with hypertension, the average SBP more than 150 mmHg post discharge is associated with increased risk of adverse events. Ideal blood pressure control should be encouraged to improve the outcome of these patients.

ABSTRACT

Preterm infants, especially those born extremely or very prematurely, are at high risk for growth retardation and neurodevelopmental disorders. Regular follow-up after discharge, early intervention, and timely catch-up growth are important guarantees for improving the quality of life of preterm infants and improving the quality of the population. This article provides an overview of the research hotspots in follow-up management of preterm infants after discharge over the past two years, including follow-up modes, nutritional metabolism and body composition follow-up, growth pattern follow-up, neurodevelopmental follow-up, early intervention, etc., in order to provide clinical guidance and research ideas for domestic peers.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVES@#To investigate the levels of physical growth and neurodevelopment in preterm infants at the corrected age of 18-24 months.@*METHODS@#The physical growth data and neurodevelopment data of 484 preterm infants at corrected age of 18-24 months were prospectively collected by a post-discharge follow-up system for preterm infants. The infants were regularly followed up in Shenzhen Bao'an Maternal and Child Health Hospital Affiliated to Jinan University from April 2018 to December 2021. The neurodevelopment was evaluated by the Children Neuropsychological and Behavioral Scale-Revision 2016. A total of 219 full-term infants served as controls. The infants were divided into groups (extremely preterm, very preterm, moderate late preterm, and full-term) based on gestational age, and the groups were compared in the levels of physical growth and neurodevelopment.@*RESULTS@#Except that the moderate preterm group had a higher length-for-age Z-score than the full-term group (P=0.038), there was no significant difference in physical growth indicators between the preterm groups and the full-term group (P>0.05). Each preterm group had a significantly lower total developmental quotient (DQ) than the full-term group (P<0.05). Except for the social behavior domain, the DQ of other domains in the extremely preterm and very preterm groups was significantly lower than that in the full-term group (P<0.05). The <32 weeks preterm group had a significantly higher incidence rate of global developmental delay than the full-term group (16.7% vs 6.4%, P=0.012), and the incidence rate of global developmental delay tended to increase with the reduction in gestational age (P=0.026).@*CONCLUSIONS@#Preterm infants can catch up with full-term infants in terms of physical growth at the corrected age of 18-24 months, but with a lower neurodevelopmental level than full-term infants. Neurodevelopment monitoring and early intervention should be taken seriously for preterm infants with a gestational age of <32 weeks.

ABSTRACT

Objetivos: presentar un caso de necrosis uterina tras técnica de sutura hemostática por hemorragia posparto y hacer una revisión de la literatura para determinar la técnica de sutura utilizada, los hallazgos clínicos, la técnica diagnóstica y el tratamiento realizado en los casos clínicos descritos. Materiales y métodos: se presenta el caso de una mujer de 34 años que consultó por dolor abdominal al octavo día tras cesárea por placenta previa, que precisó sutura de B-Lynch por atonía uterina y cuyo diagnóstico fue necrosis uterina. La paciente requirió histerectomía abdominal total, con evolución satisfactoria. Se realizó una búsqueda sistemática de la literatura en las bases de datos Medline vía Pubmed, Embase y Web of Science. Se buscaron series y reportes de casos y cohortes de mujeres con necrosis uterina posterior al uso de suturas de compresión uterina para control de hemorragia posparto. Se analizaron variables sociodemográficas y clínicas al diagnóstico, técnica de sutura, pruebas diagnósticas y tratamiento. Resultados: se incluyeron 23 estudios con 24 pacientes. El 83 % de las necrosis ocurrieron tras cesárea. La técnica más utilizada fue B-Lynch (66 %), seguida de Cho (25 %). Los síntomas más frecuentes fueron fiebre y dolor abdominal. La prueba diagnóstica más utilizada fue la tomografía computarizada (9 de 24 casos). En la mayoría de casos se realizó histerectomía (75 %). Conclusiones: la necrosis de la pared uterina es una complicación infrecuente pero grave. Sería recomendable el diseño de cohortes de seguimiento de mujeres sometidas a estos procedimientos para determinar la incidencia de complicaciones asociadas.


Objectives: To present a case of uterine necrosis following hemostatic suturing to control postpartum bleeding, and to review the literature in order to identify the suture techniques employed, clinical findings, diagnostics and treatment in the clinical cases described. Materials and Methods: A 34-year-old woman presenting with abdominal pain eight days after cesarean delivery due to placenta previa who required B-Lynch compression suture due to uterine atony, and who was diagnosed with uterine necrosis. The patient underwent total abdominal hysterectomy with a satisfactory recovery. A systematic literature search was conducted in the Medline vía Pubmed, Embase and Web of Science databases. The search included case series and reports, and cohorts of women with uterine necrosis following the use of uterine compression sutures for postpartum bleeding. The analysis included sociodemographic and clinical variables at the time of diagnosis, suturing technique, diagnostic tests and treatment. Results: Overall, 23 studies with 24 patients were included. Of all necrosis cases, 83% occurred following cesarean section. B-Lynch was the suturing technique most frequently used (66 %), followed by the Cho suture (25 %). The most frequent symptoms were fever and abdominal pain. The most commonly used diagnostic test was computed tomography (9/24 cases). Hysterectomy was performed in the majority of cases (75 %). Conclusions: Although rare, uterine wall necrosis is a serious complication. It would be advisable to design follow-up cohort studies of women undergoing these procedures in order to determine the incidence of associated complications.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: A correção das deformidades dentofaciais depende do bom diagnóstico, da precisão do planejamento e da correta execução da técnica cirúrgica. Buscando maior precisão, o planejamento virtual para cirurgia ortognática tem sido uma ferramenta amplamente aplicada pela cirurgia bucomaxilofacial. Este trabalho demonstra, por meio de caso clínico, os benefícios adquiridos pelo planejamento virtual, no que diz respeito a quantificação do movimento, avaliação da predição dos tecidos moles e osteotomias, assim como discorre sobre os cuidados e passos necessários para um correto planejamento. Relato do caso: Paciente de perfil classe II, submetida ao protocolo de planejamento virtual com aquisição de imagens tomográficas, escaneamento intraoral e utilização de software digital para avaliação diagnóstica, planejamento e impressão dos guias cirúrgicos. A mesma foi acompanhada durante 3 meses de pós operatório, apresentando boa precisão e previsibilidade nos movimentos cirúrgicos realizados. Discussão: Ao se realizar uma avaliação clínica acurada, somada a aquisição de imagens tridimensionais, a partir das tomografias de face, escaneamentos intraorais e o manejo da tecnologia CAD/CAM, é possível se alcançar maior precisão no planejamento e predictibilidade cirúrgica, bem como realizar um melhor diagnóstico das deformidades transversas.

Introduction: The correction of dentofacial deformities depends directly on a good diagnosis, the precision of the surgical planning and the correct execution of the technique. Seeking greater precision, virtual planning for orthognathic surgery has been a tool widely applied in oral and maxillofacial surgery. This work demonstrates, through a case report, the benefits acquired by virtual planning, regarding the quantification of movement, evaluation of the prediction of soft tissues and osteotomies, as well as discusses the accuracy and steps necessary for a correct planning. Case report: Class II facial profile patient, submitted to the virtual planning protocol with acquisition of tomographic images, intraoral scanning and use of digital software for diagnostic evaluation, planning and printing of surgical guides. She was followed up for 3 months after the operation, showing good precision and predictability in the surgical movements performed. Discussion: When performing an accurate clinical evaluation, added up to the acquisition of three-dimensional images, from face tomography, intra-oral scans and the management of CAD/CAM technology, it is possible to achieve greater precision in surgical planning and predictability, as well as accomplish a better diagnosis of transverse deformities. However, one must take into account the need for theoretical practical knowledge for the correct execution of the steps for virtual planning. Final considerations: Given the above, it was possible to observe precision in the result obtained and compatibility between the planned and executed movements. As well, aspects related to each of the steps for the virtual protocol were demonstrated, exposing their particularities and differences in relation to conventional planning... (AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La infección congénita por citomegalovirus es causa de pérdida auditiva y alteraciones cognitivas. La infección perinatal por este virus es más frecuente en neonatos< 1500 g y produce menos secuelas neurológicas. Objetivo: Describir la evaluación neurológica en el primer año de vida en niños muy bajo peso al nacer con infección por citomegalovirus. Métodos: Estudio descriptivo y longitudinal en el que se incuyeron 14 neonatos< 1500 g, con diagnóstico de infección congénita o perinatal por citomegalovirus; a los cuales se les realizó evaluación del neurodesarrollo, ultrasonido craneal, potenciales evocados auditivos de tallo cerebral y potenciales visuales a las 40 semanas, a los seis meses y al año de edad gestacional corregida. En la primera evaluación se realizó además, electroencefalograma. Resultados: El 43 por ciento tuvo infección congénita y 57 por ciento infección perinatal. A las 40 semanas se evaluaron completamente 79 % de los casos, a los seis meses 64 por ciento y al año 36 por ciento. No se observaron anormalidades en el ultrasonido craneal, ni en el electroencefalograma. Al año de edad corregida, se detectaron alteraciones ligeras del neurodesarrolo en 33,3 por ciento del total de casos (2/6) y con igual porcentaje en los niños con infección congénita (1/3) y perinatal (1/3). En ningún paciente evaluado se detectó sordera neurosensorial, ni daño del nervio visual. Conclusiones: Las alteraciones del neurodesarrollo encontradas al año de edad corregida pueden estar relacionadas con la prematuridad o la infección por citomegalovirus. El seguimiento a mediano y largo plazo es necesario para detectar otras secuelas neurológicas de debut tardío(AU)


Introduction: Congenital cytomegalovirus infection is a cause of hearing loss and cognitive impairments. Perinatal infection by this virus is more frequent in neonates< 1500 g and produces fewer neurological sequelae. Objective: To describe neurological evaluation in the first year of life in very low birth weight children with cytomegalovirus infection. Methods: A descriptive and longitudinal study involving 14 neonates< 1500 g, with a diagnosis of congenital or perinatal cytomegalovirus infection; to which neurodevelopmental evaluation, cranial ultrasound, auditory brain stem evoked potentials and visual potentials were performed at 40 weeks, six months and one year of corrected gestational age. In the first evaluation, electroencephalogram was also performed. Results: 43 percent had congenital infection and 57 percent perinatal infection. At 40 weeks, 79 percent of cases were fully evaluated, at six months 64 percent and at one year 36 percent. No abnormalities were observed on the cranial ultrasound or electroencephalogram. At one year of corrected age, slight alterations in neurodevelopment were detected in 33.3 percent of all cases (2/6) and with the same percentage in children with congenital (1/3) and perinatal (1/3) infection. In no patient evaluated, sensorineural deafness or visual nerve damage was detected. Conclusions: The neurodevelopmental alterations found at one year of corrected age may be related to prematurity or cytomegalovirus infection. Medium- and long-term follow-up is necessary to detect other late-onset neurological sequelae(AU)

ABSTRACT

Las enfermedades reumáticas son un grupo de afecciones que se caracterizan por la presencia de manifestaciones y complicaciones sistémicas derivadas del proceso inflamatorio mantenido. Los reactantes de fase aguda, como es el caso de la proteína C reactiva constituyen un marcador de actividad de la enfermedad. Sin embargo, su utilidad se magnifica en los pacientes reumáticos que tienen que ser sometidos a una intervención quirúrgica, circunstancia en la que se tornan un marcador eficiente que muestra la magnitud del proceso inflamatorio. Se presenta el caso de una paciente femenina de 53 años edad, con diagnóstico de artritis reumatoide y síndrome de Sjögren secundario, que tuvo que ser sometida a intervención quirúrgica por diagnóstico de apendicitis aguda. Se realizó seguimiento clínico y de laboratorio utilizando la proteína C reactiva como marcador de elección para monitorear la intensidad del proceso inflamatorio resultante de la intervención quirúrgica y de los efectos de esta en la actividad clínica de las enfermedades reumáticas de base. Después del tratamiento quirúrgico y medicamentoso, la paciente fue dada de alta hospitalaria sin manifestaciones articulares, digestivas ni alteraciones de los exámenes de laboratorio(AU)


Rheumatic diseases are a group of conditions characterized by the presence of systemic manifestations and complications derived from the sustained inflammatory process. Acute phase reactants, such as C-reactive protein, constitute a marker of disease activity. However, its usefulness is magnified in those rheumatic patients who have to undergo surgery, being an efficient marker that shows the magnitude of the inflammatory process. We present the case of a 53-year-old female patient diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and secondary Sjögren's syndrome who had to undergo surgery due to a diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Clinical and laboratory follow-up was performed using C-reactive protein as the marker of choice to monitor the intensity of the inflammatory process resulting from the surgical intervention and its effects on the clinical activity of underlying rheumatic diseases(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La elevación de seno maxilar con implante dental simultáneo, sin el uso de substitutos óseos, ha retomado la teoría del potencial de neoformación ósea, que el coágulo de sangre alojado bajo la membrana de Schneider por sí solo presenta. Excluyendo así la necesidad de materiales exógenos. Objetivo: Exponer la efectividad de la elevación de seno maxilar con implante dental simultáneo, sin el uso de injerto, mediante la evaluación de la cantidad de ganancia ósea vertical. Presentación de casos: Caso 1: Paciente de 62 años, género femenino, que fue sometida a una elevación de seno maxilar sin injerto e implante dental simultáneo, con técnica de ventana lateral debido a altura ósea reducida de 5,24 mm. Luego del período de seguimiento tomográfico de 12 meses, después de la carga protésica, se logró una altura ósea vertical de 10,2 mm, lo que dio como resultado una ganancia ósea vertical de 4,96 mm. Caso 2: Paciente de 48 años, género femenino, que fue sometida a una elevación de seno maxilar sin injerto e implante dental simultáneo, con técnica transalveolar, mediante el uso de piezoeléctrico debido a una altura ósea reducida de 8,33 mm. Luego del período de seguimiento radiográfico de 4 meses, antes de la carga protésica, se logró una altura ósea vertical de 11,55 mm, lo que dio como resultado una ganancia ósea vertical de 3,19 mm. Conclusiones: Con base en estos 2 informes de casos, la elevación de seno maxilar e implante dental simultáneo sin injerto se asocian con la reducción de la morbilidad quirúrgica, menor probabilidad de procesos infecciosos y menor costo de la cirugía. Por lo tanto, puede considerarse una alternativa quirúrgica para la colocación de implantes en el maxilar posterior superior debido a deficiencias óseas verticales, independientemente de la técnica (lateral o transalveolar(AU)


Introduction: Maxillary sinus lift with simultaneous dental implantation without using bone substitutes, reapproaches the theory about the bone neoformation potential of the blood clot housed under the Schneider membrane, all by itself, thus excluding the need to use exogenous materials. Objective: Discuss the effectiveness of graftless maxillary sinus lift with simultaneous dental implant placement through an evaluation of the amount of vertical bone gain. Case presentation: Case 1: Female 62-year-old patient undergoing graftless maxillary sinus lift with simultaneous dental implantation by lateral window technique due to a reduced bone height of 5.24 mm. After a 12-month tomographic follow-up period subsequent to prosthetic loading, a 10.2 mm vertical bone height was achieved, resulting in 4.96 mm vertical bone gain. Case 2: Female 48-year-old patient undergoing graftless maxillary sinus lift with simultaneous dental implantation by transalveolar technique using a piezoelectric generator due to a reduced bone height of 8.33 mm. After a 4-month radiographic follow-up period, before prosthetic loading, an 11.55 mm vertical bone height was achieved, resulting in 3.19 mm vertical bone gain. Conclusions: According to these two case reports, graftless maxillary sinus lifting with simultaneous dental implantation is associated to reduced surgical morbidity, a lesser probability of infectious processes and lower surgical costs. It may therefore be considered to be a surgical alternative for implant placement in the posterior maxilla due to vertical bone deficiencies, regardless of the technique used (lateral or transalveolar(AU)
