ABSTRACT

La diabetes mellitus tipo 2 (DM2) representa un problema de salud pública, debido a su alta incidencia y prevalencia en el mundo. Un método para evaluar el riesgo de desarrollar DM2 es la escala Latin American Finnish Diabetes Risk Score (LA FINDRISC). La DM2 es un factor de riesgo de enfermedad arterial periférica (EAP) la cual puede ser diagnosticada mediante el índice tobillo-brazo (ITB). Objetivo: evaluar la presencia y severidad de enfermedad arterial periférica mediante ITB y relacionarlo con el riesgo de desarrollar DM2 según LA FINDRISC. Métodos: estudio descriptivo, correlacional, de corte transversal. Se evaluaron 134 personas y se les midió glicemia capilar para descartar diabetes. Posteriormente, se realizó el LA FINDRISC y el ITB. Resultados: El puntaje LA FINDRISC y la glicemia alteradas en ayunas aumentaron proporcionalmente (R2=0,5). Esta relación no se observó entre LA FINDRISC y el ITB arrojado por la población general. Sin embargo, al seleccionar los pacientes con vasos no comprimibles aparece una correlación positiva (R2=0,36) entre los dos instrumentos diagnósticos. Conclusión: LA FINDRISC y el ITB son instrumentos de diagnósticos no invasivo, sencillos y válidos para detectar riesgo de desarrollar DM2, y detectar presencia y severidad de enfermedad arterial periférica, respectivamente(AU)


Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) represents a public health problem, due to its high incidence and prevalence in the world. One method to assess the risk of developing DM2 is the Latin American Finnish Diabetes Risk Score (LA FINDRISC) scale. DM2 is a risk factor for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) which can be diagnosed using the ankle-brachial index (ABI). Objective: to evaluate the presence and severity of peripheral arterial disease using ABI and to relate it to the risk of developing DM2 according to LA FINDRISC. Methods: descriptive, correlational, cross-sectional study. 134 people were evaluated, and capillary glycemia was measured to rule out diabetes. Subsequently, the LA FINDRISC and the ITB were held. Results: The LA FINDRISC score and impaired fasting blood glucose increased proportionally (R2 = 0.5). This relationship was not observed between LA FINDRISC and the ITB showed by the general population. However, when selecting patients with non-compressible vessels, a positive correlation (R2 = 0.36) appears between the two diagnostic instruments. Conclusion: FINDRISC and ITB are simple and valid non-invasive diagnostic instruments to detect the risk of developing DM2, and detect the presence and severity of peripheral arterial disease, respectively(AU)

ABSTRACT

Regardless of sex or body size, police tasks may require officers to change direction speed (CODS) under occupational loads. The purpose of this study was to investigate body composition and CODS in female and male police cadets in both unloaded and occupationally loaded conditions. Body composition and CODS of 51 female (FPC) and 70 male police cadets (MPC) were assessed. Six body composition indices were used: Body mass index (BMI), percent body fat (PBF), percent of skeletal muscle mass (PSMM), protein fat index (PFI), index of hypokinesia (IH), and skeletal muscle mass index (SMMI). The CODS was assessed by Illinois Agility Test (IAT) and IAT while carrying a 10-kg load (LIAT). An independent sample t-test was used to identify the differences between the sexes. The regression determined associations between body composition and LIAT. The alpha level was set at p < 0.05 a priori. MPC had significantly higher (p < 0.001) BMI, PSMM, PFI and SMMI and lower PBF and IH than FPC. MPC were also faster in IAT and LIAT, carrying lower relative loads that imparted less of an impact on CODS performance. Body composition was strongly associated with the time to complete LIAT (R2 = 0.671, p < 0.001). Difference in relative load and body composition influenced CODS performance in both unloaded and loaded conditions. Thus, optimizing body composition through increasing skeletal muscle mass and reducing fat mass could positively influence unloaded and loaded CODS performance and improve elements of police task performance.


El trabajo policial puede requerir que los oficiales cambien la velocidad de dirección (CVD) bajo cargas ocupacionales, indistintamente del sexo o tamaño corporal. El propósito de este estudio fue investigar la composición corporal y los CVD en cadetes de policía de ambos sexos, tanto en condiciones de descarga como de trabajo. Se evaluaron la composición corporal y los CVD de 51 mujeres (CPF) y 70 cadetes de policía masculinos (CPM). Se utilizaron seis índices de composición corporal: índice de masa corporal (IMC), porcentaje de grasa corporal (PGC), porcentaje de masa muscular esquelética (PMME), índice de grasa proteica (IGP), índice de hipocinesia (IH) e índice de masa muscular esquelética (IMME). El CVD fue evaluado por Illinois Agility Test (IAT) y IAT mientras transportaba una carga de 10 kg (LIAT). Se usó una prueba t de muestra independiente para identificar las diferencias entre los sexos. La regresión determinó asociaciones entre la composición corporal y LIAT. El nivel alfa se estableció en p <0,05 a priori. CPM registraron un IMC, PMME, PGC y IMME significativamente más altos (p <0,001) y PGC e IH más bajos que las mujeres (CPF). Los CPM también fueron más rápidos en IAT y LIAT, llevando cargas más bajas, las que tuvieron un impacto menor en el rendimiento de CVD. La composición corporal estaba asociada con el tiempo para completar LIAT (R2 = 0,671, p <0,001). La diferencia en la carga relativa y la composición corporal influyeron en el rendimiento de CVD tanto en condiciones descargadas como cargadas. Por lo tanto, la optimización de la composición corporal a través del aumento de la masa del músculo esquelético, y la reducción de la masa grasa podrían influir de manera positiva en el rendimiento de CVD descargados y cargados, mejorando el rendimiento del trabajo policial.

ABSTRACT

In this study, we analyzed the differences in body composition among athletes during different stages of their career Forty taekwondo athletes and 10 non-athletes (20 males and 30 females) with a mean age of 18.2 years (range, 15-23 years), a mean height of 173.4 cm, and a mean body weight of 64.8 kg were studied using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and Biodex balance system. The bone mineral density of upper and lower limbs was higher among university athletes of both sexes than in high school athletes. The lean body mass of male athletes in the university was higher than in high school male athletes. By contrast, in case of females, the opposite results were obtained for the upper and lower limbs. Elucidation of the body composition according to career and sex of taekwondo athlete is worthwhile.


En este estudio, analizamos las diferencias de la composición corporal entre los atletas durante las diferentes etapas de su carrera. Se estudiaron cuarenta atletas de taekwondo y 10 no atletas (20 hombres y 30 mujeres) edad media de 18,2 años (rango, 15-23 años), una altura media de 173,4 cm y un peso corporal medio de 64,8 kg. Se utilizaron la absorciometría de rayos X de energía dual y el sistema de equilibrio Biodex. La densidad mineral ósea de las miembros superiores e inferiores fue mayor entre los atletas universitarios de ambos sexos, que en los atletas de educación secundaria. La masa corporal magra de los atletas varones en la universidad fue mayor que en los varones de la educación secundaria. Por el contrario, en el caso de las mujeres, se obtuvieron los resultados opuestos para las miembros superiores e inferiores. En conclusión se debe considerar un análisis de la composición corporal según la carrera y el sexo del atleta de taekwondo.

ABSTRACT

The exercise could play a central role to the fat management and glucose metabolism what can be a critical role in the health status of diabetic people, but the high intense exercise remains with controversial data about their effects. To identify the effect of the multimodal high-intensity interval training on body composition, lipid profile, and glucose metabolism in elderly diabetics. Methods: Elderly diabetic individuals (n = 48) were randomly divided in a Sedentary Control (SC) group, a Moderate-Intensity Continuous Training (MICT) group, and a High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) group. MICT and HITT were conducted over 60 days, 3x per week, with 40 minutes of exercise. Blood was collected prior to intervention, at four, and at eight weeks subsequently to assess glucose metabolism and lipid profiles. Body composition was determined before and after the intervention period. To verify the normality Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistical test was performed, followed by student "t" test or two-way ANOVA with Bonferroni's post hoc test with significance of 5 % the Cohen's f test to indicate the magnitude of the differences. HIIT significantly lowered cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and significantly lowered blood glucose and glycosylated haemoglobin levels (p<0.05). MICT and HIIT significantly increased levels of high-density lipoprotein, decreased total body mass and body mass index. HIIT resulted in significantly smaller waist circumferences, waist-to-hip ratios, and weight-to-height ratios over 60 days of training. HIIT is more effective than MICT for improving lipid and glycaemic profiles, decreasing body fat, and improving fat distribution elderly diabetics.


El ejercicio podría desempeñar un papel central en el manejo de la grasa y el metabolismo de la glucosa, lo que puede ser un papel crítico en el estado de salud de las personas diabéticas, pero el ejercicio intenso intenso sigue teniendo datos controvertidos sobre sus efectos. El objetivo del estudio fue identificar el efecto del entrenamiento multimodal de intervalos de alta intensidad sobre la composición corporal, el perfil lipídico y el metabolismo de la glucosa en diabéticos de edad avanzada. Los individuos diabéticos de edad avanzada (n = 48) se dividieron aleatoriamente en un grupo de control sedentario (SC), un grupo de entrenamiento continuo de intensidad moderada (MICT) y un grupo de entrenamiento de intervalos de alta intensidad (HIIT). MICT y HITT se realizaron durante 60 días, 3 veces por semana, con 40 minutos de ejercicio. Se recogió sangre antes de la intervención, a las cuatro y a las ocho semanas posteriormente para evaluar el metabolismo de la glucosa y los perfiles de lípidos. La composición corporal se determinó antes y después del período de intervención. Para verificar la normalidad se realizó la prueba estadística de Kolmogorov-Smirnov, seguida de la prueba "t" de Student o ANOVA de dos vías con la prueba post hoc de Bonferroni con una significancia del 5 % de la prueba f de Cohen, indicando las diferencias. HIIT redujo significativamente los niveles de colesterol y triglicéridos, además de reducir de manera importante los niveles de glucosa en la sangre y la hemoglobina glicosilada (p <0.05). MICT y HIIT aumentaron significativamente los niveles de lipoproteína de alta densidad, disminuyeron la masa corporal total y el índice de masa corporal. HIIT resultó en circunferencias de cintura significativamente más pequeñas, relaciones cintura-cadera y relaciones peso-altura durante 60 días de entrenamiento. HIIT es más efectivo que MICT para mejorar los perfiles de lípidos y glucémicos, disminuir la grasa corporal y mejorar la distribución de grasa en los diabéticos de edad avanzada.

ABSTRACT

Introducción. La evaluación del crecimiento durante la infancia y la adolescencia es un componente fundamental de la atención de salud en todos sus niveles, pues es parte del diagnóstico nutricional y permite la detección oportuna de patologías relacionadas. Ecuador, al no disponer de referencias nacionales de crecimiento, ha adoptado los estándares internacionales de la Organización Mundial de la Salud. El objetivo de este estudio fue construir referencias nacionales de peso, estatura e índice de masa corporal para niños, niñas y adolescentes.Métodos. Se investigaron escolares y adolescentes ecuatorianos entre 5 y 19 años de edad durante 1999 y 2012. Los centilos 3, 10, 25, 50, 75, 90 y 97 de peso, talla e índice de masa corporal fueron estimados por el método LMS para datos transversales, que utiliza la transformación Box-Cox para normalizar la distribución de los datos a cada edad.Resultados. Participaron 5934 sujetos sanos (2788 niños y 3146 niñas). Los niños pesaban más y eran más altos que las niñas. En todos los casos, los valores mostraron un aumento creciente conforme la edad avanzaba. A los 18 años, las diferencias entre sexos promediaron 8 kg y 12,5 cm.Conclusión. Las tablas y curvas producto de este estudio constituyen la primera referencia descriptiva del crecimiento de niños ecuatorianos de 5-19 años. Son un importante instrumento de evaluación nutricional. Su implementación en la atención primaria de salud permitirá complementar el diagnóstico nutricional que, tradicionalmente, se realiza sobre la base de los estándares internacionales de la Organización Mundial de la Salud.


Introduction. The assessment of growth during childhood and adolescence is a critical component of health care at all levels, but it is also part of nutritional status diagnosis and the timely detection of related conditions. Ecuador lacks national growth references, so it has decided to adopt the international standards proposed by the World Health Organization. The objective of this study was to develop national references for weight, height, and body mass index for children and adolescents.Methods. Ecuadorian schoolchildren and adolescents aged 5-19 years were studied between 1999 and 2012. The LMS method for cross-sectional data, which uses the Box-Cox transformation to normalize data distribution at each age, was applied to estimate the 3rd, 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, 90th, and 97th centiles for weight, height, and body mass index.Results. A total of 5934 healthy subjects (2788 boys and 3146 girls) participated. Boys were heavier and taller than girls. In all cases, values increased with age. At 18 years old, the differences between sexes averaged 8 kg and 12.5 cm.Conclusion. The tables and curves obtained with this study are the first descriptive growth references for Ecuadorian children and adolescents aged 5-19 years. They are relevant for nutritional assessment. Their use at the primary level of care will aid in nutritional status diagnosis, which has traditionally been done based on the World Health Organization's international standards.

ABSTRACT

Thorough knowledge of splenic artery course and morphology may help clinician to provide better practice. This Study aims at finding out if there was a relationship between splenic artery tortuosity index and age, sex, Body Mass Index (BMI) and abdominal cavity diameters. Routine abdominal Computerized Tomography (CT) scan images were retrospectively analyzed for 219 patients. Splenic artery tortuosity index was calculated. Abdominal cavity diameters were measured. Age, sex, and BMI were recorded. Splenic artery straight length (x) mean was 9.41 cm (SD 1.33). Splenic artery tortuous length mean was 15.15 cm (SD 3.31). Splenic artery tortuosity index mean was 1.63 (SD 0.36). Pearson correlation coefficient for Splenic artery tortuosity index vs. age was: 0.02 (P value 0.80). Splenic artery tortuosity index for females vs. males were 1.70 vs. 1.57 (P value 0.01). Pearson correlation coefficient for Splenic artery tortuosity index vs. BMI was 0.02 (P value 0.75). Pearson correlation coefficient for Splenic artery tortuosity index vs. abdominal cavity diameters were: Anterior-Posterior (AP) diameter -0.01 (P value 0.88) and transverse diameter 0.00 (P value 0.98). There may be a relationship between splenic artery tortuosity and female sex, but not with age, BMI and abdominal cavity diameters (AP and Transverse).


El conocimiento del curso y la morfología de la arteria esplénica puede ayudar al médico a proporcionar un diagnóstico y tratamiento oportuno al paciente. Este estudio tuvo como objetivo determinar si existe una relación entre el índice de tortuosidad de la arteria esplénica y la edad, el sexo, el índice de masa corporal (IMC) y los diámetros de la cavidad abdominal. Se tomaron imágenes retrospectivas, de rutina, de 219 pacientes de tomografía computarizada (TC) abdominal. Se calculó el índice de tortuosidad de la arteria esplénica. Se midieron los diámetros de la cavidad abdominal y se registró la edad, sexo y el IMC. La media de la longitud recta de la arteria esplénica (x) fue de 9,41 cm (DE 1,33). La longitud tortuosa de la arteria esplénica fue de 15,15 cm (DE 3,31). La media del índice de tortuosidad de la arteria esplénica fue de 1,63 (DE 0,36). El coeficiente de correlación de Pearson para el índice de tortuosidad de la arteria esplénica vs. edad fue: 0,02 (valor de P 0,80). El índice de tortuosidad de la arteria esplénica para las mujeres frente a los hombres fue de 1,70 frente a 1,57 (valor de P 0,01). El coeficiente de correlación de Pearson para el índice de tortuosidad de la arteria esplénica versus el IMC fue de 0,02 (valor de P 0,75). El coeficiente de correlación de Pearson para el índice de tortuosidad de la arteria esplénica frente a los diámetros de la cavidad abdominal fue: diámetro anterior-posterior (AP) -0,01 (valor P 0,88) y diámetro transversal 0,00 (valor P 0,98). Puede existir una relación entre la tortuosidad de la arteria esplénica y el sexo femenino, sin embargo no se encontró relación con la edad, el IMC y los diámetros de la cavidad abdominal (AP y transversal).

ABSTRACT

En el mundo la obesidad es considerada una pandemia que provoca grandes cambios metabólicos, responsables de las llamadas enfermedades crónicas no transmisibles (ECNT), las cuales presentan un 60 % de mortalidad, según la Organización Mundial de la Salud (2016). En Chile el 75 % de la población adulta y el 50,9 % de la población estudiantil, muestran índices de masa corporal de sobrepeso y obesidad, con un nivel de sedentarismo general de 66,2 %. Los objetivos de este trabajo fueron determinar los perfiles antropométricos, riesgo metabólico y niveles de actividad física en profesores de enseñanza básica en un colegio particular subvencionado de Arica-Chile. El total de los profesores, 12 varones y 29 mujeres, fueron evaluados según: peso, talla, perímetro de cintura, índice cintura-talla (ICT), índice de masa corporal (IMC), masa grasa (MG), masa grasa visceral (MGV) y masa muscular (MM). A todos ellos se les calculó el riesgo metabólico según protocolos de Ashwell & Gibson (2016) y el IMC según fórmula de Quetelet. Para determinar los porcentajes de MG, MM y MGV, se utilizó instrumento de bioimpedancia eléctrica, Omron HBF-514C. Posteriormente se les aplicó una encuesta sobre nivel de actividad física (IPAQ). Los datos fueron analizados en estadístico IBM SPSS para tendencia central, dispersión, conteos y porcentajes. Para correlación se usó test de Pearson (r>0,5). Los resultados muestran que un 68,3 % de los profesores presenta sobrepeso y obesidad. El IMC y porcentaje de MGV son significativamente más alto en varones que en mujeres (30,6 ±7,0 / 26,9±4,6 y 11,2±5,6 / 7,6±2,5 respectivamente). El riesgo metabólico general de la población en estudio fue de 58,5 % (75 % y 51,7 % varones y mujeres respectivamente). Se observa una alta correlación entre IMC-MGV (0,84), IMC-ICT (0,84) y MM-MG (0,85). Respecto al nivel de actividad física, solo el 19,5 % de los profesores muestra un nivel de actividad física alto. Se concluye que los profesores presentan valores antropométricos alterados que indican altos índices de riesgos metabólicos y con bajos niveles de actividad física. Independientemente, las mujeres presentan mejores índices morfométricos en todos los parámetros en estudio respecto a los profesores varones. Existe una alta correlación (r) entre el índice de masa corporal y los porcentajes de masa de grasa visceral y el índice de de cintura talla. Se sugiere enfocar las intervenciones educativas según sello de vida saludable, incentivando la actividad física y mejorar los hábitos alimenticios en los profesores.


Obesity is considered a global pandemic that causes major metabolic changes. It is responsible for the so-called noncommunicable chronic diseases (NCDs), which report a 60 % mortality rate (WHO, 2017). In Chile, 63 % of the population shows body mass indexes (BMI) of overweight and obesity, with a sedentary level of 86.7 %. The objectives of this work were to determine the anthropometric profiles, metabolic risk, and physical activity levels in primary school teachers, in a subsidized school in Arica, Chile. The teachers (n=41), 12 men, and 29 women were evaluated according to weight, height, waist circumference (WC), waist-to-height index (WHI), BMI, Fat Mass (FM), Visceral Fat Mass (VFM) and Muscle Mass (MM). All of them were calculated for metabolic risk, according to Ashwell & Gibson protocols and BMI according to Quetelet's formula. To determine the percentages of FM, MM, and VFM, an electric bioimpedance instrument, Omron HBF-514C, was used. Subsequently, a survey of physical activity level (IPAQ) was applied. The data were analyzed in the IBM SPSS statistic for central tendency, dispersion, counts, and percentages. For correlation, Pearson's test (r> 0.5) was used. The results show that 68.3 % of teachers are overweight and obese. BMI and percentage of VFM are significantly higher in men than in women (30.6 ± 7.0 / 26.9 ± 4.6 and 11.2 ± 5.6 / 7.6 ± 2.5 respectively). The overall metabolic risk of the study population was 58.5 % (75 % and 51.7 % men and women, respectively). There is a high correlation between BMIVFM (0.84), BMI-WHI (0.84), MM-FM (0.85). Regarding the level of physical activity, only 19.5 % of teachers show a high level of physical activity. It is concluded that teachers have altered anthropometric values that indicate high rates of metabolic risks and low levels of physical activity. Regardless, women have better morphometric indexes in all parameters under study, compared to male teachers. There is a high correlation (r) between body mass index and percentages of visceral fat mass and waist height index. It is suggested to focus on educational interventions according to the healthy life seal, promoting physical activity, and improving eating habits in teachers.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate body dissatisfaction and distorted body self-image in women with prolactinoma. Methods: Body dissatisfaction and distorted body self-image were evaluated in 80 women with prolactinoma. All patients were in menacme, 34% had normal body mass index (BMI), and 66% were overweight. Most patients (56.2%) had normal prolactin (PRL) levels and no hyperprolactinemia symptoms (52.5%). The Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ) was used to assess the patients' dissatisfaction with and concern about their physical form, and the Stunkard Figure Rating Scale (FRS) was used to assess body dissatisfaction and distorted body self-image. The patients were divided according to PRL level (normal vs. elevated) and the presence or absence of prolactinoma symptoms. Results: The normal and elevated PRL groups had similar incidences of body dissatisfaction and distorted body self-image. However, symptomatic patients reported a higher incidence of dissatisfaction than asymptomatic patients. Distorted body self-image was less common among symptomatic patients. Conclusion: Symptomatic patients showed higher body dissatisfaction, but lower body self-image distortion. The presence of symptoms may have been responsible for increased body awareness. The perception of body shape could have triggered feelings of dissatisfaction compared to an ideal lean body. Therefore, a distorted body self-image might not necessarily result in body dissatisfaction in women with prolactinomas.

ABSTRACT

RESUMO O objetivo deste estudo foi verificar se a formação do arco longitudinal do pé interfere na distribuição da pressão plantar e na flexibilidade dos músculos posteriores da coxa. O método de estudo foi transversal e as impressões plantares foram obtidas usando o plantígrafo e analisadas segundo o método Viladot. A distribuição plantar e a flexibilidade foram avaliadas pela baropodometria e pelo banco de Wells, respectivamente. Foi observado que crianças com pés cavos apresentam maior flexibilidade quando comparadas às que têm o pé normal (p=0,02); e também que pés cavos apresentam maior pressão, ou seja, maior sobrecarga em calcâneo quando comparados àqueles com o arco plantar normal (p=0,02 membro inferior direito e p=0,03 membro inferior esquerdo). A avaliação do arco longitudinal medial mostra que crianças com pés cavos apresentam maior flexibilidade dos músculos posteriores de membro inferior. Os pés cavos também estão associados com maior descarga de peso em região de calcâneo.


RESUMEN El objetivo de este estudio fue verificar si la formación del arco longitudinal del pie interfiere con la distribución de la presión plantar y la flexibilidad de los músculos posteriores del muslo. El método de estudio fue transversal y las huellas plantar se obtuvieron utilizando el plantigraph y se analizaron según el método de Viladot. La distribución plantar y la flexibilidad se evaluaron mediante baropodometría y el banco de Wells, respectivamente. Se observó que los niños con pies huecos tienen mayor flexibilidad en comparación con aquellos con pies normales (p=0,02); y también que los pies huecos tienen una mayor presión, es decir, una mayor sobrecarga del talón en comparación con aquellos con arco plantar normal (p=0,02 miembro inferior derecho y p=0,03 miembro inferior izquierdo). La evaluación del arco longitudinal medial muestra que los niños con pies huecos tienen una mayor flexibilidad en los músculos posteriores de la extremidad inferior. Los pies huecos también están asociados con una mayor descarga de peso en la región del talón.


ABSTRACT Objective: To evaluate whether the formation of the longitudinal arch of the foot interferes with the distribution of plantar pressure and the pliability of the posterior thigh muscles. Methodology: a cross-sectional study and the footprints were obtained using the footprinting mat and analyzed according to the Viladot method. Plantar distribution and pliability were assessed by baropodometry and Wells' bank, respectively. Results: It was observed that children with cavus feet present greater pliability when compared to those with normal feet (p=0.02). Also, the cavus feet exhibit higher pressure, that is, a greater heel overload compared to those with normal plantar arch (p=0.02 lower right limb and p=0.03 lower left limb). Conclusions: The evaluation of the medial longitudinal arch shows that children with cavus feet have greater pliability of the lower limb posterior muscles. The cavus feet are also associated with higher pressure in the calcaneal region.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT The purpose of this study is to analyze association between stress perception and physical activity with the prevalence of symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders (SMSD) in police officers. The police officers (n=142) answered the Perceived Stress Scale-10 (PSS-10) and the Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire. Pearson's linear correlation coefficient was used to measure strength and direction of relationship between PSS-10 and prevalence of SMSD and showed a positive correlation between variables in the last 7 days (r=0.34, p=0.00001) and in the last 12 months (r=0.40, p=0.00001). The mean prevalence of SMSD in the last 12 months was lower among police officers practicing physical activity (W=1888.5, p=0.04). Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that the practice of physical activities as well as efforts to reduce stress perception both decrease the odds of musculoskeletal disorders. This study indicated that stress level and physical activity practice influenced in prevalence of SMSD. Multidisciplinary interventions with actions to reduce stress level and encourage physical activity practice are needed to control SMSD prevalence.


RESUMO O objetivo deste estudo foi analisar a associação entre percepção de estresse e atividade física com a prevalência de sintomas de distúrbios musculoesqueléticos (SDM) em policiais. Os policiais (n=142) responderam à escala de estresse percebido-10 (EEP-10) e ao questionário nórdico-musculoesquelético. O coeficiente de correlação linear de Pearson foi utilizado para mensurar a força e o sentido da relação existente entre EEP-10 e a prevalência de SDM e mostrou que existe uma correlação positiva entre as variáveis nos últimos 7 dias (r=0,34, p=0,00001) e nos últimos 12 meses (r=0,40, p=0,00001). A prevalência média de SDM nos últimos 12 meses é menor entre os policiais que praticam atividade física (W=1888,5, p=0,04). A análise de regressão logística múltipla mostrou que a prática de atividades físicas e a diminuição na percepção do estresse reduzem a prevalência de SDM. Este estudo indicou que o nível de estresse e a prática de atividade física influenciaram a prevalência de SDM. Intervenções multidisciplinares com ações para reduzir o nível de estresse e encorajar a prática de atividade física são necessárias para controlar a prevalência de SDM.


RESUMEN El objetivo de este estudio fue analizar la asociación entre estrés percibido y actividad física con prevalencia de síntomas del trastorno musculoesquelético (STM) en los agentes de policía. Los oficiales de policía (n=142) respondieron la escala de estrés percibido-10 (EEP-10) y el Cuestionario nórdico-musculoesquelético. Coeficiente de correlación lineal de Pearson se utilizó para medir fuerza y dirección entre EEP-10 y prevalencia de STM y mostró que hubo una correlación positiva entre las variables últimos 7 días (r=0,34, p=0,00001) y últimos 12 meses (r=0,40, p=0,00001). La prevalencia promedio de STM en últimos 12 meses es menor entre los oficiales que realizan actividad física (W=1888,5, p=0,04). El análisis de regresión logística múltiple mostró que actividad física y disminución de percepción del estrés reducen prevalencia de STM. El presente estudio indicó que nivel de estrés y actividad física influyó en prevalencia de STM. Las intervenciones multidisciplinarias con acciones para reducir los niveles de estrés y fomentar la actividad física son necesarias para controlar la prevalencia de STM.

ABSTRACT

RESUMO O objetivo desta pesquisa foi estabelecer valores médios percorridos para o teste de caminhada de seis minutos em crianças saudáveis no Norte do Brasil. Este foi um estudo experimental, randomizado, cego e transversal que avaliou 63 crianças saudáveis do sexo masculino e feminino, de 10 a 12 anos, que após terem seus dados antropométricos registrados foram treinadas e instruídas para a realização do teste conforme recomendações da American Thoracic Society, após avaliação-padrão. O teste foi realizado numa pista reta de 30 metros, com marcações a cada 3 metros e cones indicando onde o retorno deveria ser feito para a continuidade do teste. Ao final, foi refeita a avaliação pré-teste. Foi observado índice de massa corporal muito baixo nos meninos de 11 anos, e normal nas outras faixas. A frequência cardíaca imediata pós-teste apresentou-se significativamente elevada em todos os grupos (p<0,001), enquanto todos os outros dados cardiovasculares colhidos não apresentaram alterações. As distâncias percorridas foram significativamente inferiores às previstas por equação-padrão para todos os grupos e sexos (p<0,0001). O valor médio percorrido encontrado em meninas foi de 436,30±56,74m e 460,80±63,90m em meninos, enquanto a média geral foi de 445,70±54,10m, abaixo dos valores esperados para a amostra. O resultado obtido pelo grupo estudado, menor que a média esperada, pode ser creditado ao fenótipo regional, mas o Índice de Desenvolvimento muito mais baixo que a média brasileira deve ter sua influência mais bem estudada. Espera-se que os achados contribuam no apontamento de valores de referência do teste em crianças do Norte brasileiro.


RESUMEN El presente estudio tuvo como objetivo establecer los valores medios recorridos por niños sanos en el Norte de Brasil en la prueba de caminata de seis minutos. Este estudio es experimental, aleatorizado, ciego y transversal, que evaluó a 63 niños y niñas sanos/as, de edades entre 10 y 12 años, y tras registrados sus datos antropométricos recibieron capacitación e instrucción para realizar la prueba según lo recomendado por American Thoracic Society, después de la evaluación estándar. La prueba se realizó en una pista recta de 30 metros, con marcas cada 3 metros y conos que indicaban dónde debe realizarse el retorno para la continuidad de la prueba. Al final, se rehízo la evaluación previa a la prueba. Se observó un índice de masa corporal muy bajo en niños de 11 años, pero normal en otros grupos de edad. La frecuencia cardíaca inmediata posprueba fue significativamente elevada en todos los grupos (p<0,001), mientras que no cambiaron los demás datos cardiovasculares recopilados. Las distancias recorridas fueron significativamente más bajas que las predichas por la ecuación estándar para los grupos y géneros (p<0,0001). Los valores medios encontrados fueron de 436,30±56,74m en las niñas y 460,80±63,90m en los niños, mientras que el promedio general fue de 445,70±54,10m, por debajo de los valores esperados para la muestra. El resultado obtenido en el grupo estudiado, inferior al promedio esperado, puede acreditar al fenotipo regional, pero el Índice de Desarrollo mucho más bajo que el promedio brasileño debe tener su influencia mejor estudiada. Se espera que los hallazgos contribuyan al establecimiento de valores de referencia para la prueba en niños del Norte de Brasil.


ABSTRACT The objective of this research was to establish mean values covered for the six-minute walk test in healthy children in Northern Brazil. This was an experimental, randomized, blind and cross-sectional study that evaluated 63 healthy male and female children, aged 10 to 12 years, who after having their anthropometric data recorded were trained and instructed to perform the test as recommended by the American Thoracic Society, after standard assessment. The test was carried out on a straight track of 30 meters, with markings every 3 meters and cones indicating where the return should be made for the test continuity. At the end, the pre-test evaluation was redone. Very low body mass index was observed in 11-year-old boys, and normal in other age groups. The post-test immediate heart rate was significantly elevated in all groups (p<0.001), while all other cardiovascular data collected did not change. The distances covered were significantly lower than those predicted by the standard equation for all groups and sexes (p<0.0001). The average value found in girls was 436.30±56.74m and 460.80±63.90m in boys, while the general average was 445.70±54.10m, below the expected values for the sample. The result obtained by the studied group, less than the expected average, can be credited to the regional phenotype, but the Development Index much lower than the Brazilian average should have its influence better studied. The findings are expected to contribute to the establishment of reference values for the test in children from northern Brazil.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Studies on the efficacy of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy for primary prevention in Asian patients are relatively lacking compared to those for secondary prevention. Also, it is important to stratify which patients will benefit from ICD therapy for primary prevention.METHODS: Of 483 consecutive patients who received new implantation of ICD in 9 centers in Korea, 305 patients with reduced left ventricular systolic function and/or documented ventricular fibrillation/tachycardia were enrolled and divided into primary (n = 167) and secondary prevention groups (n = 138).RESULTS: During mean follow-up duration of 2.6 ± 1.6 years, appropriate ICD therapy occurred in 78 patients (25.6%), and appropriate ICD shock and anti-tachycardia pacing occurred in 15.1% and 15.1% of patients, respectively. Appropriate ICD shock rate was not different between the two groups (primary 12% vs. secondary 18.8%, P = 0.118). However, appropriate ICD therapy rate including shock and anti-tachycardia pacing was significantly higher (primary 18% vs. secondary 34.8%, P = 0.001) in the secondary prevention group. Type of prevention and etiology, appropriate and inappropriate ICD shock did not affect all-cause death. High levels of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide, New York Heart Association functional class, low levels of estimated glomerular filtration ratio, and body mass index were associated with death before appropriate ICD shock in the primary prevention group. When patients were categorized in 5 risk score groups according to the sum of values defined by each cut-off level, significant differences in death rate before appropriate ICD shock were observed among risk 0 (0%), 1 (3.6%), 2 (3%), 3 (26.5%), and 4 (40%) (P < 0.001).CONCLUSION: In this multicenter regional registry, the frequency of appropriate ICD therapy is not low in the primary prevention group. In addition, combination of poor prognostic factors of heart failure is useful in risk stratification of patients who are not benefiting from ICD therapy for primary prevention.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: We investigated associations between perirenal fat thickness and atherosclerotic calcification in six different vascular beds.METHODS: Using a community-based cohort (n=3,919), perirenal fat thickness was estimated from computed tomography scans. It was classified as Q1 (the lowest quartile) to Q4 (the highest quartile) in each sex. Calcification in the carotid arteries, coronary arteries, thoracic aorta, abdominal aorta, iliac arteries, and renal arteries was evaluated.RESULTS: Perirenal fat thickness was associated with older age (P<0.01) and a higher prevalence of obesity, hypertension, and dyslipidemia (P<0.01 for all). Perirenal fat thickness was independently associated with renal arterial calcification even after adjustment for age, sex, body mass index, hypertension, dyslipidemia, smoking history, and family history of heart diseases in first-degree relatives (odds ratio [OR] per quartile of perirenal fat thickness, 1.25; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.09 to 1.44). Compared to Q1, the odds of renal arterial calcification in Q4 was about two times higher (OR, 2.05; 95% CI, 1.29 to 3.25). After adjustment for renal arterial calcification and atherosclerotic risk factors, the only other vascular bed where perirenal fat thickness showed a significant association with calcification was the abdominal aorta (OR, 1.11; 95% CI, 1.00 to 1.23; P=0.045).CONCLUSION: Perirenal fat thickness was independently associated with vascular calcification in the renal artery and abdominal aorta.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to survey potential candidates for bariatric/metabolic surgery for procedure preferences.METHODS: Questions asked were divided into 5 categories: (1) demographic and anthropometric data, comorbidities, and favored surgery; (2) awareness of safety, effectiveness, and complications of each type of surgery; (3) discordances in opinion between self-selected and medically recommended procedures; and (4, 5) reasons for/against particular surgery.RESULTS: From 1 October to 15 November 2018, 104 respondents adequately responded and were included in the analysis. The number (%) of female respondents was 79 (76.0%). The number (%) of respondents by decade was 17 (16.3%) in their 20s, 65 (62.5%) in their 30s, 19 (18.3%) in their 40s, and 3 (2.9%) in their 60s, respectively. Mean body mass index was 37.1 ± 6.3 kg/m2. Comorbidities were type 2 diabetes in 34 (32.7%) and hypertension in 35 (33.7%). The most favored procedure was sleeve gastrectomy (SG) in 78 (75.0%), adjustable gastric band (AGB) surgery in 12 (11.5%), Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in 6 (5.8%), and gastric plication (GP) in 8 (7.7%). Major reasons for choosing procedures were; “adjustable” for AGB, “stomach sparing” for GP, “excellent weight loss” for SG, and “comorbidity resolution” in RYGB.CONCLUSION: Candidates for bariatric/metabolic surgery favored SG followed by AGB, GP, and RYGB, and their choices were compatible with current evidence-based clinical practice.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To study the value of body fat mass measured by bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) in predicting abnormal blood pressure and abnormal glucose metabolism in children.@*METHODS@#Stratified cluster sampling was used to select the students aged 6-16 years, and a questionnaire survey and physical examination were performed. The BIA apparatus was used to measure body fat mass. Body mass index (BMI), body fat mass index (FMI), and fat mass percentage (FMP) were calculated. Fasting blood glucose level were measured.@*RESULTS@#A total of 14 293 children were enrolled, among whom boys accounted for 49.89%. In boys and girls, the percentile values (P, P, P, P, P, P, P, P) of FMI and FMP fitted by the LMS method were taken as the cut-off values. Based on the receiver operating characteristic curve analysis, the P values with a better value in predicting abnormal blood pressure and blood glucose metabolism were selected as the cut-off values for excessive body fat. When FMI or FMP was controlled below P, the incidence of abnormal blood pressure or abnormal glucose metabolism may be decreased in 8.25%-43.24% of the children.@*CONCLUSIONS@#The evaluation of obesity based on FMI and FMP has a certain value in screening for hypertension and hyperglycemia in children, which can be further verified in the future prevention and treatment of obesity and related chronic diseases in children.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Introduction: Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome is characterized by retro-patellar and peripatellar pain during squatting, kneeling and running whose intensity can be related to Body Mass Index (BMI). Objective: To evaluate the relationship between overweight, pain and function in women with Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS). Method: Cross-sectional observational study of fifty-four women with PFPS assessed in the period between January and December 2015, in the physiotherapy outpatient clinic of a tertiary hospital in the city of São Paulo. To verify the variables of pain at rest, at effort and function, the Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) and the Kujala Anterior Knee Pain Scale (AKPS) were used. The participants were divided into two groups, according to the BMI categories defined by the World Health Organization (WHO): Group 1, composed of women with normal BMI (18-24.9 kg/m²), with 36 patients, and group 2 composed of overweight women (25-29.9 k/m²), with 18 patients. Comparison between groups of pain at rest and effort and AKPS were performed using Student's t-test and Mann-Witney with statistical significance p < 0,05. Results: There was no statistically significant difference between groups for the pain at rest and effort and for AKPS. Conclusion: BMI does not impact pain intensity and function in women with PFPS.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Verificar associação da prevalência da baixa estatura corporal e excesso de peso com a experiência de cárie dentária em crianças e adolescentes, matriculados no ensino fundamental e da rede pública de ensino. Métodos: Estudo transversal observacional, aprovado com o Parecer nº 197/2012 do Comitê de Ética em Pesquisa e assinatura dos termos de consentimento e assentimento livres e esclarecidos das 1.090 crianças e adolescentes, entre cinco e dezessete anos da rede pública de ensino em Barcelos, AM. Foram avaliados os índices antropométricos estatura corporal para idade, índice de massa corporal para idade, em valores de escore-Z, comparados ao padrão de referência da OMS Considerou-se como variável dependente as duas variáveis dicotômicas baixa estatura corporal e excesso de peso, e considerou-se como variáveis independentes faixa etária, sexo, tipo de escola e cárie dentária. Foi utilizado o modelo de Regressão Logística, com Intervalo de confiança de 95%, sendo ajustado com entrada de variáveis passo a passo, para análise de associação das variáveis de desfechos com as variáveis explicativas. Resultados:A prevalência de baixa estatura corporal foi de 4,9% e o excesso de peso estava presente em 17,9% dos estudantes. Os adolescentes apresentaram 1,57 vezes mais chance de possuir excesso de peso do que as crianças (p = 0,046). Não foi encontrado associação entre os estudantes com baixa de estatura corporale cárie dentária (p = 0,22), no entanto, através do modelo de regressão logística (setpwise) p < 0,05 os estudantes com excesso de peso apresentaram (p = 0,008) com a cárie dentária. Conclusão: O excesso de peso foi o problema nutricional de maior prevalência, e os estudantes com experiência de cárie apresentaram menor chance de ter excesso de peso do que os livres de cárie.


Aim: To verify the association between the prevalence of low body height and excess weight with the experience of dental caries in children and adolescents registered in the public elementary school system. Methods: This was a cross-sectional observational study, approved by the Research Ethics Committee, Opinion No. 197/2012. Participants and guardians signed a free and informed consent forms for the 1,090 children and adolescents, between five and seventeen years of age, from the public school system in Barcelos, AM, Brazil. Anthropometric indices for height-for-age and body mass index for age were measured in Z score values and compared with the reference standard set by the World Health Organization (WHO). This study considered the two dichotomous variables of low body height and excess weight to be dependent variables, and considered the variables of age group, sex, type of school, and dental caries as to be independent variables. A Logistic Regression model was applied, with a confidence interval (CI) of 95%, adjusted with stepwise variable entry for the analysis of the association of the outcome variables with the explanatory variables. Results: A low body height prevalence of 4.9% was found, and the excess weight was present in 17.9% of the students. Adolescents showed 1.57 times greater chances of having excess weight than children (p = 0.046). No association was found between students with low body height and dental caries (p = 0.22); however, through the logistic regression model (stepwise), p < 0.05 overweight students presented (p = 0.008) dental caries.
