ABSTRACT

Las políticas sobre trabajadores/as de salud deben garantizar su distribución adecuada. En Argentina dicha distribución es desigual, sobre todo en especialistas en atención primaria de la salud (APS). El objetivo de este trabajo fue describir la distribución de médicos/as, especialistas lineales y en APS en Argentina, durante el año 2020, teniendo en cuenta la situación económica y sanitaria de cada jurisdicción. Se trata de un trabajo descriptivo y analítico, que utilizó fuentes de datos primarias y secundarias. Se correlacionó la tasa de mortalidad infantil y el producto bruto per cápita de cada jurisdicción ordenándolas de mejores a peores indicadores. La tasa de médicos fue 3,88 médicos/as cada 1000 habitantes, 72% concentrándose en 4 jurisdicciones (Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Provincia de Buenos Aires, Córdoba y Santa Fe). El 53% son especialistas y el 27,6% lo son en APS. CABA tuvo una tasa de 16,5 médicos/as por mil; Santiago del Estero y Formosa alcanzaron valores de 1,8 y 1,9 médicas/os por mil habitantes respectivamente. Con respecto a 2014, se observó disminución de especialistas en APS (-14,8%), registrándose las mayores pérdidas en Santiago del Estero, Formosa y Catamarca (-84,5%; -70,1% y -87,3%). La situación nacional sobre la distribución de médicos/as en Argentina desde 1954 a la actualidad fue empeorando en detrimento de las provincias con mayores necesidades. La baja adherencia al sistema de residencias a especialidades de APS pronostica un empeoramiento de la situación de no haber cambios estructurales. Será necesario un fortalecimiento del rol rector del estado en el abordaje de esta problemática (AU)


Policies on health workers must guarantee their adequate distribution. In Argentina, this distribution is unequal, particularly among primary care specialists (PHC).The objective of this article is to describe the distribution of physicians, PHC and non-PHC specialists in Argentina in 2020, considering the economic and health situation of each jurisdiction.We conducted a descriptive cross-sectional study with an analytical stage using primary and secondary data sources. The jurisdictions were classified according to the correlation between infant mortality rate and gross product per capita.The rate of physicians in Argentina in 2020 was 3.88 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants. 72% are concentrated in 4 jurisdictions (City of Buenos Aires, Province of Buenos Aires, Córdoba and Santa Fe). 53% are specialists and 27.6% are PHC specialists. The City of Buenos Aires has a rate of 16.5 physicians per thousand; and Santiago del Estero and Formosa reach values of 1.8 and 1.9 physicians per thousand inhabitants, respectively.There was a decrease in PHC specialists (-14.8%), with major losses recorded in Santiago del Estero, Formosa and Catamarca (-84.5%; -70.1% and -87.3%, respectively).The distribution of physicians in Argentina from 1954 to the present has worsened to the detriment of the provinces with the greatest needs. The lack of adheren-ce to the specialty of PHC predicts a worsening of the situation if there are no structural changes. It is necessary to strengthen the leading role of the state in addressing this problem (AU)

ABSTRACT

Contexto: A obesidade infantil ocasiona diversas doenças e uma das formas para combatê-la é a atividade física, que exerce um papel fundamental. Objetivo: Comparar as diferentes intensidades da atividade física mensurada objetivamente de acordo com o transporte ativo, a prática de esportes e as atividades físicas estruturadas e seu impacto na gordura corporal e índice de massa corporal (IMC) em escolares. Desenho e local: Estudo transversal de amostra por critério de conveniência, realizado em São Caetano do Sul pelo Centro de Estudos do Laboratório de Aptidão Física de São Caetano do Sul (CELAFISCS). Métodos: Foram avaliadas um total de 584 crianças (277 meninos) que atenderam aos critérios de inclusão. A amostra foi dividida em grupos segundo o transporte (ativo e passivo) e a prática esportiva (sim e não). Para análise estatística foi utilizado o teste t Student e o teste U de Mann-Whitney. Para o ajuste das variáveis foi utilizada a análise de covariância (ANCOVA). Resultados: Os meninos demonstraram que, independentemente do tempo de transporte, há efeito do tipo do transporte sobre a atividade física (AF) durante a semana, de intensidade moderada, moderada-vigorosa, AF durante o final de semana de intensidade moderada, moderada-vigorosa e vigorosa. As meninas demonstraram efeito do tipo de transporte sobre a AF durante a semana na AF de intensidade moderada e de intensidade moderada-vigorosa. A gordura corporal e o IMC não apresentaram diferenças entre os grupos. As práticas esportivas não tiveram diferenças significativas em nenhuma das variáveis. Conclusões: O transporte ativo atingiu os níveis de intensidade moderada, moderada-vigorosa durante a semana, tanto no masculino como no feminino. No final de semana, além dessas, a intensidade vigorosa foi encontrada nos meninos.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Introducción: En los últimos años, la gastrectomía laparoscópica ha aparecido como una técnica quirúrgica con resultados oncológicos comparables a la técnica abierta, pero existe poca evidencia en cuanto a la calidad de vida posoperatoria de estos pacientes. Objetivo: Evaluar la calidad de vida posoperatoria de pacientes sometidos a gastrectomía total laparoscópica (GTL) en comparación a gastrectomia total abierta (GTA) en cáncer gástrico. Materiales y Método: Estudio retrospectivo, observacional en Hospital Militar de Santiago, entre enero de 2015 y junio de 2020. Se les aplicó 2 encuestas validadas para Chile: EORTC QLQ-30 y EORTC QLQ-OG25. Resultados: Se obtuvieron 60 pacientes; 30 sometidos a GTL y 30 a GTA. Promedio edad fue 66,3 ± 11 años para GTL y 68,2 ± 11 años en GTA (p = 0,5). Se obtuvo un score en GTL versus GTA: global 83,3 y 80,2 (p = 0,6), sintomático 17,1 y 25,5 (p = 0,2) y score funcional 87,9 y 70,9 (p = 0,03). Posterior a eso obtuvimos en funcionalidad GTL versus GTA; física 92,2 versus GTA 73,1 (p = 0,04), emocional 84,1 versus 78,5 (p = 0,6), cognitiva 84,9 versus 79,0 (p = 0,3) y social 80,9 versus 72,2 (p = 0,4). Al analizar síntomas destaco; fatiga 14,6 versus 33,1 (p = 0,04) y dolor 13,4 versus 24,3 (p = 0,05). Finalmente, en síntomas digestivos altos obtuvimos en disfagia 0,84 GTL versus 17,3 GTA (p = 0,04). Conclusión: La GTL logra resultados comparables a GTA en calidad de vida e incluso ofrece ventajas significativas en funcionalidad física como también en síntomas como dolor, fatiga y disfagia.


Introduction: In recent years, laparoscopic gastrectomy has appeared as a surgical technique with oncological results comparable to the open technique, but there is little evidence regarding the postoperative quality of life of these patients. Objective: To evaluate the postoperative quality of life of patients undergoing laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) compared to open total gastrectomy (OTG) in gastric cancer. Materials and Method: Prospective, observational study at Hospital Militar of Santiago, between January 2015 and June 2020. Two surveys validated for Chile were applied: EORTC QLQ-30 and EORTC QLQ-OG25. Results: 60 patients were obtained; 30 subjected to LTG and 30 to OTG. Average age was 66.3 ± 11 years for LTG and 68.2 ± 11 years for OTG (p = 0.5). A score was obtained in LTG versus OTG: global 83.3 and 80.2 (p = 0.6), symptomatic 17.1 and 25.5 (p = 0.2) and functional score 87.9 and 70.9 (p = 0.03). After that we got LTG versus OTG functionality; physical 92.2 versus 73.1 (p = 0.04), emotional 84.1 versus 78.5 (p = 0.6), cognitive 84.9 versus 79.0 (p = 0.3) and social 80.9 versus 72.2 (p = 0.4). When analyzing symptoms I highlight; fatigue 14.6 versus 33.1 (p = 0.04) and pain 13.4 versus 24.3 (p = 0.05). Finally, in upper digestive symptoms, we obtained 0.84 LTG versus 17.3 OTG in dysphagia (p = 0.04). Conclusion: LTG achieves results comparable to OTG in quality of life and even offers significant advantages in physical functionality as well as symptoms such as pain, fatigue and dysphagia.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivo: Describir resultados de la cirugía de sustitución esofágica con tubo gástrico invertido, vía ascenso retroesternal en dos hospitales pediátricos durante el período marzo 2015 a marzo 2018. Materiales y Método: Un estudio observacional, transversal, con recolección de datos retrospectivo, donde se incluyeron todos los expedientes de pacientes que presentaban patología del esófago por causa adquirida o congénita que fueron operados de sustitución esofágica con tubo gástrico invertido en dos hospitales pediátricos durante 3 años. Resultados: Encontramos 29 niños sometidos a sustitución esofágica, de los cuales 27 cumplieron criterios de inclusión. La edad comprendida entre 2 y 17 años. El 63% corresponde al sexo femenino. La causa más frecuente de sustitución esofágica es por estenosis esofágica por ingesta caustica (92,59%). El 70% presentó algún tipo de complicación luego de la cirugía. La fístula esofagocutánea es la complicación principal con 33,33%. La permanencia en la unidad de cuidados intensivos es menor de 24 horas en un 74% de los niños. Se inicia la vía oral en casi la mitad de casos entre los 10-12 días de posquirúrgico, la estancia hospitalaria es en promedio 18,5 días. La mortalidad es 3,7%. Conclusión: La sustitución esofágica por tubo gástrico invertido vía ascenso retroesternal, es una técnica comparable en resultados a la interposición de colón. Para los autores, el estómago es un órgano ideal para realizar la reconstrucción esofágica, y sus complicaciones son manejables.


Aim: To describe the results of esophageal replacement surgery with an inverted gastric tube via retrosternal ascent in two pediatric hospitals during the period March 2015 to March 2018. Materials and Method: an observational, cross-sectional study with retrospective data collection that included all the records of patients with esophageal discontinuity due to acquired or congenital causes who underwent esophageal replacement surgery with an inverted gastric tube in two pediatric hospitals for 3 years. Results: We found 29 children undergoing esophageal replacement, of which 27 met inclusion criteria. The age between 2 to 17 years. 63% corresponds to the female sex. The most frequent cause of esophageal replacement is esophageal stricture due to caustic ingestion (92.59%). 70% presented some type of complication after surgery. The esophagocutaneous fistula is the main complication with 33.33%. The stay in the intensive care unit is less than 24 hours in 74% of children. The oral route is started in almost half of cases between 10-12 days after surgery; the hospital stay is on average 18.5 days. Mortality is 3.70%. Conclusión: The esophageal substitution by inverted gastric tube via retrosternal ascent is a technique comparable in results to the interposition of the colon. For the authors, the stomach is an ideal organ to perform esophageal reconstruction, and its complications are manageable.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: The number of nephrologists has risen slowly, compared with the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Brazil. Data on patients referred to nephrology outpatient clinics remains scarce. OBJECTIVE: To determine the demographic and kidney function characteristics of patients at their first appointment with a nephrologist. DESIGN AND SETTING: Retrospective study conducted at three nephrology outpatient clinics (public and private services), in São Paulo, Brazil. METHODS: From December 2019 to February 2020, we collected patient data regarding demographics, kidney function parameters and comorbidities. We then analyzed data on 394 patients who met a nephrologist for their first appointment. RESULTS: The main comorbidities were hypertension (63.7%), diabetes (33.5%) and nephrolithiasis (22.3%). Regarding CKD stages, 24.1%, 9.1%, 13.7%, 15.2%, 15.2% and 2.3% of the patients were in stages 1, 2, 3a, 3b, 4 and 5, respectively. Proteinuria was absent or mild, moderate and high in 17.3%, 15.2% and 11.7%, respectively; and 16.2% had not undergone previous investigation of serum creatinine or proteinuria (55.8%). For 17.5%, referral to a nephrologist occurred late. Patients in public services were older than those in private services (59 years versus 51 years, respectively; P = 0.001), more frequently hypertensive (69.7% versus 57.5%; P = 0.01) and reached a nephrologist later (22.4% versus 12.4%; P = 0.009). CONCLUSION: Referrals to a nephrologist were not being made using any guidelines for CKD risk and many cases could have been managed within primary care. Late referral to a nephrologist happened in one-fifth of the cases and more frequently in the public service.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objectives: to characterize school-aged children, adolescents, and young people's profile and their associations with positive COVID-19 test results. Methods: an observational and descriptive study of secondary data from the COVID-19 Panel in Espírito Santo State in February to August 2020. People suspected of COVID-19, in the 0-19-years old age group, were included in order to assess clinical data and demographic and epidemiological factors associated with the disease. Results: in the study period, 27,351 COVID-19 notification were registered in children, adolescents, and young people. The highest COVID-19 test confirmation was found in Caucasians and were 5-14 years age group. It was also observed that headache was the symptom with the highest test confirmation. Infection in people with disabilities was more frequent in the confirmed cases. The confirmation of cases occurred in approximately 80% of the notified registrations and 0.3% of the confirmed cases, died. Conclusion: children with confirmed diagnosis for COVID-19 have lower mortality rates, even though many were asymptomatic. To control the chain of transmission and reduce morbidity and mortality rates, it was necessaryto conduct more comprehensive research and promote extensive testing in the population.


Resumo Objetivos: Caracterizar o perfil de crianças, adolescentes e jovens em idade escolar e associações com o resultado positivo do teste COVID-19. Métodos: estudo observacional e descritivo de dados secundários do Painel COVID-19, no Estado do Espírito Santo no período de fevereiro a agosto de 2020. Foram incluídas pessoas suspeitas de COVID-19, em faixas etárias de 0 a 19 anos, a fim de avaliar os dados clínicos e fatores demográficos e epidemiológicos associados ao agravo. Resultados: no período de estudo, foram considerados 27.351 registros de notificação da COVID-19 em crianças, adolescentes e jovens. As maiores chances de confirmação dos casos foram encontradas na faixa etária de 5 a 14 anos, em pessoas de raça/cor branca para COVID-19. Observouse que cefaleia foi o sintoma que apresentou maior chance de confirmação de teste. Já a infecção em pessoas deficientes foram mais frequentes nos casos confirmados. A confirmação dos casos se deu em aproximadamente 80% dos registros de notificação e do total confirmados 0,3% vieram a óbito. Conclusão: as crianças com diagnóstico confirmado para COVID-19 apresentam menor taxa de mortalidade, mesmo que muitas fossem assintomáticas. Para o controle da cadeia de transmissão e redução nas taxas de morbimortalidade, torna-se necessária a realização de pesquisas mais abrangentes e promoção da testagem ampla na população.

ABSTRACT

Resumen (analítico) Se caracteriza el fenómeno del colecho en términos sociodemográficos, socioeconómicos y en relación con las vulnerabilidades específicas de los hogares, tales como la violencia intrafamiliar y los consumos nocivos. A través de la Encuesta de la Deuda Social Argentina y un análisis multivariado cuantitativo, se abordan los siguientes interrogantes: ¿el colecho es una práctica asociada únicamente a los bebés?, ¿resulta más frecuente en contextos de pobreza o se trata de una práctica que atraviesa a diferentes infancias? Se concluye que el colecho no es un fenómeno exclusivo de los y las bebés; que en la adolescencia es más regresivo para las mujeres y que el factor socio-económico remite a un «colecho forzoso¼ que se especifica en interacción con el hacinamiento, la monoparentalidad, los consumos nocivos y la violencia intrafamiliar.


Abstract (analytical) This paper analyses the phenomenon of bed-sharing in terms of sociodemographic and socioeconomic variables, but also considers specific vulnerabilities like domestic violence and addictions. It is worth examining whether this practice is associated only with babies, or else if vulnerable contexts also have an impact on children's and adolescent's co-sleeping. The information was obtained through Social Debts in Argentina Survey, and this quantitative research concludes that in this country not only early years bed-share, the phenomenon impairs teenage girls more often and that the socio-economic factor plays a decisive role. For this reason, we propose the term "forced-bed-sharing", which refers to when co-sleeping is intensified by variables like overcrowding, single-parent family type, addictions and domestic violence.


Resumo (analítico) O artigo caracteriza o fenómeno do coleito considerando variáveis sócio demográficas e socioeconómicas, mas também vulnerabilidades específicas como a violência doméstica ou vícios. Neste contexto, perguntamo-nos: associa-se só aos bebés? Tem mais frequência em condições de vulnerabilidade? Esta prática tem um impacto ou motivações diferentes em relação ás características das crianças? A informação foi obtida através do Questionário da Dívida Social Argentina, e o desenho de pesquisa quantitativo conclui que não é somente um fenómeno exclusivo da primeira infância, na adolescência é mais frequente em meninas e que o fator socioeconómico é decisivo. Por isso, propomos o termo "coleito forçoso", que refere a quando a regularidade da cama compartilhada se intensifica por variáveis como a superlotação, o tipo de família monoparental, vícios e violência doméstica.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Introduction: Pancreatitis is a frequent pathology in our environment, mostly related to benign biliary pathology. It can progress to severe forms in 10-15 % of cases, where the pancreatic tissue becomes necrotic and forms large collections with risk of infection. We do not have epidemiological data about the incidence or management of this complication in Colombia. Aim: This study aims to study the prevalence of infected pancreatic necrosis and describe the cases identified in a quaternary care hospital between 2014 and 2021. Materials and methods: A cross-sectional observational study. We analyzed records of patients diagnosed with stage 2 pancreatitis. Those cases with infected pancreatic necrosis that underwent debridement plus laparoscopic and open surgical drainage at Hospital Universitario Mayor Méderi in Bogotá, Colombia, between January 2014 and January 2021 were studied. A convenience sampling was carried out without calculating the sample size. We collected the patients' demographic and clinical variables, performing a descriptive statistical analysis in Excel. Qualitative variables were described through absolute and relative frequencies, while quantitative ones were expressed through measures of central tendency and dispersion based on their distribution. Results: We analyzed 1020 episodes of pancreatitis, finding pancreatic necrosis in 30 patients, i.e., a period prevalence of 2.9 %. Of the patients, 83 % (n = 25) underwent open drainage, with 48 % (n = 12) mortality. About laparoscopic management, the reduction in postoperative organ failure was 40 % (n = 2), with a 30 % shorter hospital stay than the open drainage approach. Those patients with a level of procalcitonin (PCT) lower than 1.8 ng/mL had less mortality. Conclusions: The laparoscopic approach shows promising results regarding final morbidity and mortality.


Resumen Introducción: la pancreatitis es una patología frecuente en nuestro medio, mayormente relacionada con la patología biliar benigna. Esta puede progresar a formas severas en 10 %-15 % de los casos, en donde el tejido pancreático se necrosa y forma grandes colecciones, con riesgo de infección. En Colombia no conocemos los datos epidemiológicos acerca de la incidencia de este tipo de complicaciones, ni del manejo de las mismas. Objetivo: este estudio tiene como objetivo estudiar la prevalencia de la necrosis pancreática infectada y describir los casos identificados en un hospital de alto nivel de complejidad entre 2014 y 2021. Métodos: estudio observacional de corte transversal. Se analizaron los registros de pacientes diagnosticados con pancreatitis en segunda etapa. Se estudiaron aquellos casos que presentaron necrosis pancreática infectada y se sometieron a desbridamiento más drenaje quirúrgico por vía laparoscópica y abierta en el Hospital Universitario Mayor Méderi de Bogotá, Colombia, entre enero de 2014 y enero de 2021. Se realizó un muestreo por conveniencia, sin cálculo de tamaño de muestra. Se recolectaron variables demográficas y clínicas de los pacientes. Se realizó un análisis estadístico descriptivo de las variables obtenidas en Excel. Las variables cualitativas se describieron a través de frecuencias absolutas y relativas; mientras que las cuantitativas se expresaron mediante medidas de tendencia central y de dispersión en función de su distribución. Resultados: se analizaron 1020 episodios de pancreatitis y se evidenció necrosis pancreática en 30 pacientes, es decir, una prevalencia de período de 2,9 %. De los pacientes, 83 % (n = 25) se llevó a drenajes por vía abierta, con un 48 % (n = 12) de mortalidad. En relación con el manejo por vía laparoscópica, la reducción en la falla orgánica posoperatoria fue de 40 % (n = 2), con un 30 % menos de duración en la estancia hospitalaria, comparado con la vía abierta. Aquellos pacientes que presentaron un nivel de procalcitonina (PCT) menor de 1,8 ng/mL tuvieron menos mortalidad. Conclusiones: el abordaje laparoscópico muestra resultados prometedores en cuanto a la morbilidad y mortalidad final observada.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Objetivo: Comparar tres abordajes quirúrgicos (abierto, laparoscópico y laparoscópico convertido) para el manejo de complicaciones posoperatorias en cirugía colorrectal electiva realizadas primariamente por vía laparoscópica. Materiales y Método: Este estudio de cohorte retrospectivo incluyó pacientes reoperados después de una cirugía colorrectal laparoscópica electiva, agrupándose según la vía de abordaje de reoperación: abierta (RVA), laparoscópica (RVL) y laparoscópica convertida (RVLC). Las variables estudiadas fueron: preoperatorias (edad, sexo, puntuación ASA, IMC, comorbilidades e historia quirúrgica); operatorias (causa de reoperación, latencia para reoperación, tiempo operatorio, cirugía realizada y causa de conversión); y posoperatorias (tránsito intestinal, días de hospitalización, días de UCI, complicaciones médicas, infección del sitio quirúrgico, evisceración, transfusión y mortalidad a los 30 días). Resultados: Sin diferencias significativas para las variables preoperatorias y operatorias. En cuanto a las variables posoperatorias, el grupo de reoperaciones por vía laparoscópica, tuvo menos días de hospitalización (p = 0,012), menos días de UCI (p = 0,001) y un tránsito intestinal más rápido para reaparición de gases, heces y retorno a dieta sólida (p = 0,008, p = 0,029, p = 0,030, respectivamente). No hubo diferencias significativas en la infección del sitio quirúrgico, la evisceración, las complicaciones médicas, la transfusión y la mortalidad. Discusión y Conclusión: Este estudio reveló una mejor evolución clínica posoperatoria en el grupo de reoperación laparoscópica, con menor estancia hospitalaria y en UCI, y reducción del íleo posoperatorio, sin aumento de la morbimortalidad. Por lo tanto, la reoperación laparoscópica en cirugía colorrectal podría ser el abordaje más adecuado en pacientes debidamente seleccionados.


Aim: To compare three approaches (laparoscopic, open, and conversion of laparoscopic approach) for the management of intra-abdominal surgical complications after elective laparoscopic colorectal surgery. Materials and Method: This was a retrospective cohort study including patients who required reoperation due to an intra-abdominal surgical complication after initial elective laparoscopic colorectal surgery. Patients were grouped according to the reoperation approach-laparoscopic reoperation, laparoscopic reoperation that required conversion to open surgery, and open reoperation. Pre-operative variables (age, gender, ASA score, BMI, comorbidities, and surgical history), operative variables (cause of reoperation, latency for reoperation, operative time, surgery performed, and cause of conversion), and post-operative variables (intestinal transit, hospital days, ICU days, medical complications, surgical site infection, evisceration, transfusion and 30-day mortality), were compared between groups. Results: There were no significant differences between groups among the pre-operative and operative variables. In terms of post-operative variables, the laparoscopic reoperation group, had fewer hospital days (p = 0.012), fewer ICU days (p = 0.001), and faster intestinal transit regarding gas, stool and return to solid diet (p = 0.008, p = 0.029 and p = 0.030, respectively). However, there were no significant differences in surgical site infection, evisceration, medical complications, transfusion, and mortality. Discussion and Conclusión: This study revealed better post-operative clinical course in the laparoscopic reoperation group, with shorter hospital and ICU stay, and reduced postoperative ileus, without increased morbidity or mortality. Laparoscopic reoperation for complications after elective laparoscopic colorectal surgery may therefore be the preferred approach.

ABSTRACT

OBJETIVO: Evaluar los factores sociales y demográficos asociados al embarazo y al embarazo repetido en mujeres adolescentes de Perú MÉTODO: Estudio transversal analítico realizado a partir de las encuestas de población ENDES 2009 a 2018 en Perú. Participaron mujeres adolescentes entre 12 y 19 años de edad. Se recogió información de condición de embarazo y características sociales y demográficas. Se aplicó la prueba de χ2 y se calculó la razón de prevalencia ajustada con su intervalo de confianza al 95% usando regresión de Poisson con varianza robusta. RESULTADOS: En el estudio se incluyeron 49 676 mujeres adolescentes. El 12,6% tuvieron un embarazo y el 5,1% tuvieron dos o más embarazos. Se evidenció asociación entre edad, región geográfica, origen étnico, nivel educativo, nivel económico y embarazo adolescente (p < 0,001). Los niveles educativo y económico inferiores presentaron una mayor razón de prevalencia de embarazo adolescente, siendo mayor incluso en situaciones de dos o más embarazos. CONCLUSIONES: En la población de mujeres adolescentes de Perú, el 17,7% estuvieron embarazadas y el 5,1% tuvieron embarazo repetido. Existe asociación entre embarazo adolescente y bajos niveles económico y educativo; esta asociación se incrementa en situaciones de embarazo repetido.


OBJECTIVE: To assess the social and demographic factors associated with pregnancy and repeated pregnancy in adolescent women in Peru. METHOD: Analytical cross-sectional study carried out from the ENDES population surveys 2009 to 2018 in Peru. Adolescent women between 12 and 19 years of age participated. Information on pregnancy status and number of children was collected, as well as social and demographic characteristics. The χ2 test was applied, the adjusted prevalence ratio with its 95% confidence interval was calculated using Poisson regression with robust variance. RESULTS: 49 676 adolescent women were included in the study. The 17.7% had one or more pregnancies and 5.1% two or more pregnancies. The analysis showed an association between geographic region, age, ethnic origin, educational level, economic level and adolescent pregnancy (p < 0.001). The lower levels of educational level and economic level presented a higher prevalence ratio of adolescent pregnancy, being higher even in situations of two or more pregnancies. CONCLUSIONS: In the population of adolescent women in Peru, 17.7% were pregnant and 5.1% had repeated pregnancy. Adolescent pregnancy is associated with low economic and educational levels; this association increases in situations of repeated pregnancy.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: distúrbios do sono são comuns na gravidez e decorrem de modificações anatômicas, fisiológicas e hormonais. A atenção primária à saúde encontra-se em posição singular no reconhecimento de tais desordens. Nesse contexto, esta pesquisa tem como objetivo avaliar a qualidade do sono de gestantes em uma Unidade Básica de Saúde e correlacioná-la com parâmetros analisados durante o acompanhamento pré-natal. Metodologia: trata-se de um estudo observacional, transversal e analítico, desenvolvido por meio de pesquisa de campo, com gestantes acompanhadas em uma Unidade Básica de Saúde. Os dados foram obtidos utilizando uma ficha de questionário que associava algumas variáveis com a qualidade do sono, mensurada pelo Índice de Qualidade do sono de Pittsburgh, em sua versão brasileira (PSQI-BR). Resultados e Discussão: foram entrevistadas 83 gestantes, com 76 preenchendo os critérios de inclusão. A maioria das pacientes possuía idade inferir a 26 anos (64,4%), era multípara (59,2%), com peso inadequado (72,4%), não tinha distúrbio hipertensivo na gestação (76,3%) e estava no primeiro trimestre (40,8%). Após a aplicação do teste qui-quadrado de Pearson e a razão de chances, verificou-se que as três últimas variáveis citadas tinham relação com a qualidade do sono, apresentando significância estatística (p<0,05). Além disso, 34,2% das gestantes tinha má qualidade do sono. Conclusão: a qualidade do sono deve ser avaliada durante o acompanhamento pré-natal, visto que seu comprometimento é frequente, sobretudo diante de certos fatores de risco, e pode resultar em desfechos maternos adversos. Assim, o reconhecimento precoce possibilita melhora do prognóstico gestacional.


Introduction: sleep disorders are common in pregnancy and result from anatomical, physiological and hormonal changes. Primary health care is in a unique position in recognizing such disorders. In this context, this research aims to assess the quality of sleep of pregnant women in a Basic Health Unit and associated it with parameters analyzed during prenatal care. Methodology: this is an observational, cross-sectional and analytical study, developed through field research, with pregnant women accompanied in a Basic Health Unit. The data were obtained using a questionnaire form that correlated some variables with the quality of sleep, measured by the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, in its Brazilian version (PSQI-BR). Results and Discussion: 83 pregnant women were interviewed, with 76 fulfilling the inclusion criteria. Most patients were 26 years old (64.4%), multiparous (59.2%), with inadequate weight (72.4%), had no hypertensive disorder during pregnancy (76.3%) and were in the first quarter (40.8%). After applying Pearson's chi-square test and odds ratio, it was found that the last three variables mentioned were related to sleep quality, showing statistical significance (p <0.05). In addition, 34.2% of pregnant women had poor sleep quality. Conclusion: the quality of sleep should be assessed during prenatal care, as its impairment is frequent, especially in the face of certain risk factors, and can result in adverse maternal outcomes. Thus, early recognition makes it possible to improve gestational prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: as parasitoses intestinais estão distribuídas mundialmente e são frequentes entre indivíduos com maior contato interpessoal. A prevalência destas infecções reflete a precariedade das condições sanitárias e socioeconômicas que propiciam sua disseminação na população. Objetivos: determinar a frequência de parasitos intestinais e analisar o perfil socioeconômico e higiênico-sanitário entre crianças e adolescentes em Vitória da Conquista, Bahia, Brasil. Metodologia: estudo transversal conduzido em 116 participantes a partir de entrevista e análise coproparasitológica segundo o método Hoffman, Pons e Janer. O programa EpiInfo Windows versão 3.5.4 foi utilizado para a criação e análise dos bancos de dados. Valor de p<0,05 e IC de 95% foram considerados como significativos. Resultados: foi identificada prevalência de 77,6% de indivíduos parasitados. A média de idade foi de 9,6 anos e 57,8% eram do sexo masculino. Os patógenos mais frequentes foram Giardia duodenalis (35,5%), Entamoeba histolytica/dispar (16,6%), Enterobius vermicularis (3,3%) e Ascaris lumbricoides (1,1%). Organismos comensais foram encontrados em 93,3% dos indivíduos infectados. Verificou-se que 97,8% tinham abastecimento de água tratada; 76,7% possuíam rede de esgoto; 86,7% tinham acesso à coleta de lixo; 72,2% consumiam água filtrada ou fervida em casa e 41,1% declararam higienizar as frutas, verduras e hortaliças antes do consumo. Conclusão: foi identificada alta taxa de parasitismo retratando as condições socioeconômicas e higiênico-sanitárias da população estudada. Destaca-se a necessidade de maiores esforços para a realização de programas de educação em saúde para que a população seja modificadora da sua realidade a partir da conscientização sobre a problemática.


Introduction: intestinal parasites are distributed worldwide and are frequent among individuals with greater interpersonal contact. The prevalence of these infections reflects the precariousness of the sanitary and socioeconomic conditions that promote their dissemination in the population. Objectives: to determine the frequency of intestinal parasites and to analyze the socioeconomic and hygienic-sanitary profile among children and teenagers in Vitória da Conquista, Bahia, Brazil. Methods: cross-sectional study conducted in 116 participants based on interview and parasitological analysis of feces according to the Hoffman, Pons and Janer method. The EpiInfo Windows version 3.5.4 software was used to create and analyze the databases. p-value <0.05 and 95% CI were considered significant. Results: a prevalence of 77.6% of parasitized individuals was identified. The average age was 9.6 years and 57.8% were male. The most frequent pathogens were Giardia duodenalis (35.5%), Entamoeba histolytica/dispar (16.6%), Enterobius vermicularis (3.3%) and Ascaris lumbricoides (1.1%). Commensal organisms were found in 93.3% of infected individuals. It was found that 97.8% had treated water supply; 76.7% had a sewage system; 86.7% had access to garbage collection; 72.2% consumed filtered or boiled water at home and 41.1% declared to clean fruits, vegetables and vegetables before consumption. Conclusion: we identified a high rate of parasitism representing the socioeconomic and hygienic-sanitary conditions of the studied population. We highlight the need for greater efforts in carrying out health education programs so that the population can modify their reality based on awareness of the problem.

As manifestações bucais encontradas foram bolhas orais (100%), anquiloglossia (100%), língua despapilada (100%), hipoplasia de esmalte (80%), cárie (40%) e abertura de boca limitada em média de 28,6 mm. Conclusão: os portadores de Epidermólise Bolhosa apresentaram manifestações orais características da doença, tendo como consequências maiores dificuldades para realizar higienização bucal e tratamento odontológico, sendo necessário conhecimento prévio dos cirurgiões-dentistas para o atendimento desses pacientes.


Introduction: inherited Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare disease, characterized by blistering of the skin and mucous membranes that suffer minimal trauma or appear spontaneously. The main divisions of EB are Simple Epidermolysis Bullosa, Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa, Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa and Kindler Syndrome. The oral manifestations usually found in patients with EB are blisters in the oral epithelium, microstomy, ankyloglossia, periodontal disease, enamel hypoplasia, dental caries, atrophy of the jaw and mandibular prognathism, varying for each type of disease. Objective: to report the oral manifestations of Epidermolysis Bullosa patients living in the municipality of Barra da Estiva. Methods: cross-sectional study, quantitative and descriptive that was developed in the municipality of Barra da Estiva-BA with the population of people with Epidermolysis Bullosa, through anamnesis and clinical examination. Descriptive statistics was used to tabulate the data collected. Results: 5 children with Epidermolysis Bullosa were analyzed, most male (60%), with an average age of 5,6 years. Oral manifestations found were oral blisters (100%), anquiloglossia (100%), loss of papillae of the tongue (100%), enamel hypoplasia (80%), tooth decay (40%) and mouth opening limited to the average of 28.6 mm. Conclusion: epidermolysis Bullosa children presented oral manifestations common to the disease, leading to difficulties in performing oral hygiene and dental treatment, requiring prior knowledge of dental surgeons for the care of these patients.

ABSTRACT

The aim of the study is to determine the psychological well-being of patients who underwent stem cell transplantation. This cross-sectional study was conducted with 100 patients. Data were collected face-to-face using an introductory information form and the Brief Symptom Inventory.When the results of the patients were examined, the interpersonal sensitivity of the sub-dimensions of the scale was found to be 5.0 ± 4.06, depression 7.60 ± 5.37, and anxiety disorder 7.90 ± 5.34. There was a significant difference between the diagnosistime of the patients and all sub-factors of the scale, except phobic anxiety. It was found that the psychological state of the patients was directly related to the time of first diagnosis. As a result, the importance of following the psychological processof the patients during the treatment process was revealed when planning nursing care.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To explore the impacts of socio-demographic and clinical co-variates on treatment responses and outcomes in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in the chronic phase (CML-CP) receiving tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) and identified the predictive models for them. Methods: Data of newly diagnosed adult patients with CML-CP receiving first-line TKI and having complete socio-demographic data and clinical information were reviewed. Cox model was used to identify the independent variables associated with complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) , major molecular response (MMR) , molecular response 4 (MR(4)) and molecular response 4.5 (MR(4.5)) , as well as failure-free survival (FFS) , progression-free survival (PFS) , overall survival (OS) and CML-related OS. Results: A total of 1414 CML-CP patients treated with first-line imatinib (n=1176) , nilotinib (n=170) or dasatinib (n=68) were reviewed. Median age was 40 (18-83) years and 873 patients (61.7% ) were males. Result of the multivariate analysis showed that lower educational level (P<0.001-0.070) and EUTOS long-term survival intermediate or high-risk (P<0.001-0.009) were significantly associated with lower cumulative incidences of CCyR, MMR, MR(4) and MR(4.5), as well as the inferior FFS, PFS, OS and CML-related OS. In addition, those who were males, from rural households, had white blood cells (WBC) ≥120×10(9)/L, hemoglobin (HGB) <115 g/L and treated with first-line imatinib had significantly lower cumulative incidences of cytogenetic and/or molecular responses. Being single, divorced or widowed, having, rural household registration, WBC≥120×10(9)/L, HGB<15 g/L, and comorbidity (ies) was significantly associated with inferior FFS, PFS, OS, and/or CML-related OS. Thereafter, the patients were classified into several subgroups using the socio-demographic characteristics and clinical variables by cytogenetic and molecular responses, treatment failure and disease progression, as well as overall survival and CML-related OS, respectively. There were significant differences in treatment responses and outcomes among the subgroups (P<0.001) . Conclusion: Except for clinical co-variates, socio-demographic co-variates significantly correlated with TKI treatment responses and outcomes in CML-CP patients. Models established by the combination of independent socio-demographic and clinical co-variates could effectively predict the responses and outcome.
