ABSTRACT

Objetivo: analisar a letalidade da COVID-19 por sexo e idade entre os profissionais de saúde do Estado Pará, Brasil. Método: estudo epidemiológico e observacional, com utilização de dados secundários públicos sobre casos e óbitos acumulados por COVID-19 e dados demográficos, entre março e outubro de 2020. O número de casos e óbitos por COVID-19 ocorridos entre profissionais de saúde foram comparados em relação à idade e ao sexo pelo teste qui-quadrado, seguido por regressão logística pelo método Backward Stepwise de Wald. Resultados: entre os 15.332 casos confirmados de COVID-19, 70,3% eram do sexo feminino e 61,3% com idade entre 30 a 49 anos (39,2±11,6 anos). Registraram-se 97 óbitos, com uma taxa de letalidade de 0,6%. A probabilidade de óbito foi 52,8 vezes (20,7-134,5) e 4,0 vezes (2,5-6,2) maior entre jovens e homens quando comparados às demais notificações. Conclusão: a taxa de letalidade entre os profissionais de saúde é alta, especialmente entre homens jovens. Este é um alerta sobre os impactos da doença entre os trabalhadores da saúde e suscita ao poder público, especificamente ao setor saúde melhores condições de trabalho e políticas de saúde do trabalhador.(AU)


Objective: to analyze the lethality of COVID-19 by sex and age among health professionals in the state of Pará, Brazil. Method: epidemiological and observational study, using public secondary data on cases and deaths accumulated by COVID-19 and demographic data, between March and October 2020. The number of cases and deaths by COVID-19 that occurred among health professionals were compared in relation to age and sex using the chi-square test, followed by logistic regression using Wald's Backward Stepwise method. Results: among the 15,332 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 70.3% were female and 61.3% aged between 30 and 49 years (39.2 ± 11.6 years). 97 deaths were recorded, with a fatality rate of 0.6%. The probability of death was 52.8 times (20.7-134.5) and 4.0 times (2.5-6.2) higher among young men and men when compared to other reports. Conclusion: the lethality rate among health professionals is high, especially among young men.

ABSTRACT

El hígado graso del embarazo es una patología poco frecuente en la especialidad obstétrica, cuyo diagnóstico se realiza basado en los criterios de Swansea, muchas veces es un diagnóstico que se realiza por exclusión; usualmente se presenta entre las semanas 30 y 35 del embarazo, y la cura definitiva se realiza con la interrupción expedita del mismo; con una tasa de recuperación casi del 100% si se realiza la interrupción oportuna y una tasa de mortalidad materno fetal actual del 10%. Es importante estar atentos a la ganancia ponderal de la embarazada durante el control prenatal, la epigastralgia, y los signos clínicos asociados a hipoglicemia(AU)


Fatty liver of pregnancy is a rare pathology in obstetrics, whose diagnosis is made based on the Swansea criteria, many times it is a diagnosis that is made by exclusion; It usually occurs between weeks 30 and 35, and the definitive cure is carried out with the expeditious interruption of pregnancy; with a recovery rate of almost 100% if timely interruption is made and a current maternal-fetal mortality rate of 10%. It is important to be attentive to the weight gain of the pregnant woman during prenatal control, epigastric pain, and clinical signs associated with hypoglycemia

ABSTRACT

A principios del nuevo milenio surgió el concepto del "Trauma urbano moderno", sustentando en la experiencia de varios conflagraciones en zonas densamente pobladas. Fue definido como un conflicto violento, cerrado, con heridas destructivas y de difícil acceso para su evacuación. Su manejo incluyo el cuestionamiento de viejos dogmas y la incorporación de nuevas estrategias. El motín del reten "La Planta", el incremento en las detonaciones por granadas fragmentarias y los graves enfrentamientos entre bandas delictivas o contra cuerpos de seguridad, en diversas zonas de Caracas indican el establecimiento de una modalidad mas agresiva de violencia. Los cirujanos capitalinos se enfrentan con más frecuencia a lesiones severas y múltiples. El personal medico requiere la adecuada comprensión y preparación para afrontar este nuevo tipo de heridas. La reciente enfermedad Covid 19 representa un desafió agregado en el abordaje de los pacientes con traumatismos(AU)


The experience in many combats in densely populated urban areas, determined the new concept of "Modern urban warfare" in the beginning of the new millennium. This definition is a warfare violent, close-quarter, with destructive injuries and the delayed of evacuation. New innovations were incorporate. The revolt in the "La Planta" prison, the increase of grenades explosions and engagement between criminal organized, in many zones of Caracas, illustrated this new definition. The venezuelans surgeons attended many severe and multiple injuries. The surgical personal need understand this new kind of injuries. The new disease Covid 19 represents a challenge in the attention of these patients(AU)

ABSTRACT

Presentar nuestra experiencia de 18 años en el tratamiento con radioterapia y evaluar cifras de control tumoral local en pacientes con diagnóstico de tumor de células gigantes tenosinovial difuso sinovitis villonodular pigmentada difusa. 33 pacientes, tratados durante el período 2000-2018. En 19 (57,6 %) se practicó sinovectomía parcial, 10 (30,3 %) fueron tratados con artroplastia y sinovectomía, 4 (12,2 %) con sinovectomía total. 32 pacientes recibieron radioterapia posoperatoria, 1 paciente preoperatoria. Técnica más empleada fue planificación 2D 51,5 % seguida de conformada con planificación 3D (RTC3D) 48,5 %. La dosis total promedio administrada 44 Gy (rango 10,5 - 50). Tiempo promedio de tratamiento radiante 28 días (8-35). Tiempo de seguimiento entre 0,7 - 240,8 meses, mediana 12 meses, promedio 52,1 meses. 26 pacientes (79 %) presentaron mejoría de la sintomatología inicial y 6 (18 %) refirieron estabilidad de los síntomas. La respuesta clínica al tratamiento en relación al tiempo de seguimiento, 12 pacientes (36,4 %) estaban asintomáticos, 10 con un seguimiento mayor a 60 meses; 14 (42,4 %) refieren respuesta clínica satisfactoria, (2 con un seguimiento mayor a 60 meses) 6 pacientes presentaban enfermedad estable, para un control local del 97 %. El 87,9 % presentaron dermatitis grado I, 1 desarrolló dermatitis grado II, 3 no presentaron efectos adversos. La radioterapia es una modalidad de tratamiento muy efectiva como adyuvante a la sinovectomía, observándose altas tasas de control local de la enfermedad con una baja morbilidad(AU)


To report our eighteen-year experience with radiation therapy in the treatment of diffuse tenosinovial giant cell tumor / diffuse pigmented villonodular synovitis and to assess local control of the disease. A review of 33 patients with treated with radiation therapy during the period 2000-2018 was done. 19 (57.6 %) partial synovectomy was performed, 10 (30.3 %) underwent arthroplasty plus synovectomy, 4 (12.2 %) total synovectomy. 32 patients received radiotherapy postoperative and 1 pre-operative. Most common technique employed was conventional (2D) in 51.5 % and 3D conformal (3DCRT) in 48.5 %. The average total dose was 44 Gy (range 10.5-50), with a mean treatment time of 28 days (8-35). Follow-up time ranged from 0.7- 240.8 months, median time and mean time of 12 and 52.1 months respectively After RT 26 (79 %) of the patients obtained improvement of the initial symptoms and 6 (18 %) were stable. 12 patients (36.4 %) were asymptomatic with follow-up time longer than 36 months (10 of 12 had follow-up time >60 months), 14 (42.4 %) had significant clinical improvement (2 of 14 had follow-up time >60 months), and 6 had stable disease, local control of 97 %. Complications were few, acute skin toxicity was grade I in 29 (87.9%) and grade II in 1 patient. There was no significant chronic toxicity. Radiation therapy is an effective adjuvant treatment modality after synovectomy in patients with high local control rates and low morbidity(AU)

ABSTRACT

El linfoma de Burkitt es una neoplasia altamente agresiva y es un tipo raro de linfoma no Hodgkin localizado. Aunque los niños son los más frecuentemente afectados, en adultos ocurren principalmente durante el embarazo o el puerperio. La mama rara vez constituye la localización primaria del linfoma no Hodgkin. Se presenta un caso de linfoma de Burkitt primario de mama durante el embarazo. Paciente de 37 años con embarazo de 24 semanas quien presentó aumento de volumen difuso de mama derecha. La mama estaba aumentada de tamaño, dolorosa y homogénea con tumoración elástica y firme. La ecografía demostró inflamación difusa con tumoración heterogénea e hipoecoica con contornos ligeramente irregulares, marcadores tumorales estaban normales las pruebas serológicas fueron negativas. La biopsia de la lesión mostró tejido mamario reemplazado por células linfoideas de tamaño mediano con citoplasma basófilo y múltiples vacuolas. Estudios inmunohistoquímicos fueron positivos para el antígeno leucocitario común, CD10, CD20, CD43, Bcl-6. El análisis cromosómico reveló que más del 90 % de las células neoplásicas exhibieron translocación t llevando al diagnóstico final de linfoma de Burkitt de mama. Luego de evaluar las posibilidades terapéuticas y del consentimiento de la paciente se inició tratamiento citostático sistémico. Los linfomas primarios de mama son extremadamente raros. El linfoma de Burkitt primario de la mama es mucho menos común que los otros linfomas. Los métodos de clasificación, detección y tratamiento de esta afección siguen siendo objeto de debates e investigaciones(AU)


The Burkitt's lymphoma is a highly aggressive neoplasm and is a rare type of localized non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Although children are the most frequently affected, in adults they occur mainly during the pregnancy or the puerperium. The breast rarely constitutes the primary location for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The study of a case of primary Burkitt lymphoma of the breast during pregnancy is presented. This is a 37 year old patient with a 24 week pregnancy who presented a diffuse increase in the volume of the right breast. The breast was enlarged, painful and homogeneous with a firm, elastic mass. The ultrasonography showed diffuse inflammation with a heterogeneous and hypoechoic tumor with slightly irregular contours. The tumor marker values were normal and the serological tests were negative. The biopsy of the lesion showed breast tissue replaced by medium-sized lymphoid cells with basophilic cytoplasm and multiple vacuoles. Immunohistochemically studies were positive for the common leukocyte antigen, CD10, CD20, CD43, Bcl-6. The chromosomal analysis revealed that more than 90 % of neoplastic cells exhibited t translocation leading to the final diagnosis of Burkitt lymphoma of the breast. After evaluating the therapeutic possibilities and the patient's consent, systemic cytostatic treatment was started. Primary breast lymphomas are extremely rare. The primary Burkitt lymphoma of the breast is much less common than other lymphomas. The methods of classification, detection, and the treatment of this condition continue to be the subject of debate and research(AU)

ABSTRACT

La hemiagenesia tiroidea representa un trastorno congénito caracterizado por la ausencia de desarrollo de uno de los lóbulos tiroideos, asociado o no a ausencia del istmo. Es más frecuente en las mujeres y por lo general se presenta como falta del lóbulo izquierdo, con hipertrofia compensatoria del lóbulo contralateral. Su diagnóstico es generalmente incidental o por manifestaciones del lóbulo tiroideo presente. Se hizo una revisión bibliografía, en donde no se encontraron casos reportados en Venezuela de hemiagenesia o agenesia tiroidea, describiéndose el siguiente. Presentamos a una paciente de 50 años de edad, conocida con hipotiroidismo desde los 31 años, negando cualquier cirugía en el área de cabeza y cuello. Desde febrero 2019 presentó aumento progresivo de volumen en región anterior de cuello. Al examen físico se observó aumento de volumen en región anterior derecha del cuello, palpándose lóbulo tiroideo derecho aumentado de tamaño, de aspecto nodular, no doloroso. En ecosonograma tiroideo se concluyó como bocio tiroideo derecho de aspecto multinodular, con ausencia del lóbulo izquierdo. Perfil tiroideo dentro de límites normales. Se lleva a mesa operatoria corroborándose ausencia del lóbulo izquierdo y presentado en la biopsia definitiva hiperplasia nodular en el lóbulo derecho. Se discute su frecuencia, la forma de presentación y se hace revisión de la literatura(AU)


Thyroid hemiagenesis represents a congenital disorder characterized by the absence of development of one of thyroid lobes, associated or not with absence of isthmus. It is more frequent in women and generally presents as absence of the left lobe, with compensatory hypertrophy of the contralateral lobe. Its diagnosis is generally incidental or by manifestations of the present thyroid lobe. A bibliography review was made, where no cases reported in Venezuela of hemiagenesis or thyroid agenesis were found, describing the following. We present a 50-year-old patient, known with hypothyroidism since she was 31, denying any surgery in the head and neck area. Since February 2019, presented a progressive increase in volume in the anterior neck region. On physical examination, an increase in volume was observed in right anterior region of the neck, palpating an enlarged right thyroid lobe, with a nodular appearance and not painful. In a thyroid echo-sonogram, it was concluded as a right thyroid goiter with a multinodular appearance, with the absence of the left lobe. Thyroid profile within normal limits. It is taken to the operating table, confirming the absence of the left lobe and presented in the definitive biopsy nodular hyperplasia in the right lobe. Its frequency, form of presentation, and literature review are discussed(AU)

ABSTRACT

Clasificar los carcinomas de pulmón según criterios establecidos por la OMS 2015 en biopsias de la sección de patología respiratoria del Instituto Anatomopatológico "Dr. José Antonio O`Daly" en el período enero 2006-diciembre 2016. Se realizó estudio descriptivo y retrospectivo, en el que se evaluaron todos los casos de carcinomas pulmonares recibidos entre enero 2006 diciembre 2016. La edad de presentación del carcinoma pulmonar fue 61 ± 11,45 años. Fue más frecuente en el sexo masculino 56,57 %. El tipo histológico más frecuente fue el adenocarcinoma 61,6 %. El adenocarcinoma el patrón predominantemente sólido fue el más constante 57,3 %, seguido de patrón predominantemente acinar 18,2 % y patrones mixtos. El carcinoma de células escamosas fue el segundo tipo más frecuente con 30,3 % de los casos representando el carcinoma de células escamosas poco diferenciado no queratinizante un 40 %. El carcinoma neuroendocrino fue el tercer tipo de carcinoma más común y el carcinoma de células pequeñas representó el 80 % de estos casos. Al menos 10,8 % de los casos fueron carcinomas no clasificables por necrosis o muestra escasa. Los casos previamente diagnosticados como adenocarcinoma poco diferenciado se corresponden con patrón sólido. Es importante el uso de inmunohistoquímica para el diagnóstico definitivo especialmente de adenocarcinoma patrón predominantemente sólido. El uso de la actual clasificación permite definir pronóstico y tratamiento personalizado(AU)


To classify the lung carcinomas according to criteria established by WHO 2015 in the biopsies of the section of respiratory pathology of the Anatomo Pathological Institute "Dr. José Antonio O`Daly" in the period January 2006 December 2016. A study will be carried out descriptive and retrospective, in which all cases of the pulmonary carcinomas received between January 2006 and December 2016 were evaluated. The age of presentation of the lung carcinoma was 61 ± 11.45 years old. It was more frequent in the male sex 56.57 %. The most frequent histological type was the adenocarcinoma 61.6 %. The predominantly solid adenocarcinoma pattern was the most constant 57.3 % followed by predominantly acinar pattern 18.2 % and the mixed patterns. The squamous cell carcinoma was the second most frequent type 30.3 %, and the poorly differentiated and non-keratinizing type was a 40 %. The neuroendocrine carcinoma was the third most common type of it the small cell carcinoma accounted an 80 %. At least 10.8 % of the cases were carcinomas unclassifiable due to necrosis or scarce sample. The cases previously diagnosed as poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma correspond to a solid pattern. The immunohistochemically use is important for the definitive diagnosis, especially for the adenocarcinoma predominantly solid pattern. The use of the current classification allowsdefining the prognosis and the personalized treatment(AU)

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: In Brazil, the right to health has a constitutional and universal provision. However, the judicial route has been widely used to access health goods and services. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the lawsuits of medicines filed by citizens of a Brazilian municipality. METHODS: Quantitative and retrospective study evaluating 652 lawsuits filed in 2016 conducted in Uruguaiana, state of Rio Grande do Sul. The information was made available by the State Department of Health. RESULTS: 55.5% of lawsuits filed were related to drugs provided by the public health system Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS). 44.5% did not fit into the guidelines of the Brazilian Policy for Pharmaceutical Services. Most of the lawsuits were filed by women over 60 years old. Regarding the therapeutic classification, the most requested drugs were for the nervous system. The most described pathological condition according to the ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases) was Diabetes Mellitus. CONCLUSION: These data corroborate the situation found in other parts of the country, demonstrating the need to reorganize the Pharmaceutical Service Policy to ensure universal and equitable access to medicines, as described in the Federal Constitution.


INTRODUÇÃO: No Brasil, o direito à saúde tem previsão constitucional e universal. No entanto, a via judicial tem sido muito usada para acessar bens e serviços de saúde. OBJETIVO: Analisar as demandas judiciais de medicamentos movidas por cidadãos de um município brasileiro. MÉTODOS: Realizou-se um estudo quantitativo e retrospectivo que avaliou 652 ações judiciais no ano de 2016 em Uruguaiana, estado do Rio Grande do Sul. As informações foram disponibilizadas pela Secretaria de Saúde estadual. RESULTADOS: 55,5% das demandas estavam relacionados a medicamentos fornecidos pelo Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS). 44,5% não se enquadravam em nenhum dos componentes da Política Nacional de Assistência Farmacêutica do Brasil. A maioria dos processos foram movidos por mulheres acima de 60 anos. Em relação à classificação terapêutica, os medicamentos mais solicitados foram para o Sistema Nervoso. A condição patológica mais descrita, segundo o CID-10 (Classificação Internacional de Doenças) foi Diabetes Mellitus. CONCLUSÃO: Tais dados corroboram com a situação encontrada em outras partes do país, demonstrando a necessidade de reorganização da Assistência Farmacêutica para garantir o acesso universal e equitativo aos medicamentos, conforme descrito na Constituição Federal.

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: The city of Santarém, the regional healthcare center in the western Pará State, lacks studies on the epidemic of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), in particular, on the causes of death. OBJECTIVE: To characterize the sociodemographic and clinical profile related to the evolution of HIV infection to death. METHODS: The sample consisted of 94 medical records of patients from a reference center in the city of Santarém-PA, who died between 2010-2018. Data were collected on the sociodemographic profile, immunological and clinical characteristics of the patients. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, adopting p<0.05. RESULTS: Most deaths were male (67%), aged between 15-29 years (39%) and diagnosed between 30-44 years (41%), single (54%), mixed race (91.5%), from Santarém (77%) and with sexual intercourse being the main type of exposure (95.7%). Most patients were not being treated at the moment of death (56.4%), the main cause of death was respiratory failure (5%), in which, these individuals had, at the moment of death, TCD4+ lymphocytes <200 cell/mm3 (26%) and detectable viral load (29%). CONCLUSION: The lifetime from diagnosis to death was 48.45±50,30 months, and immunosuppression in the diagnosis was positively associated with the shortest survival time. However, sex was not associated with the immunological profile, age at the time of diagnosis, and death. There was only a tendency for women towards immunosuppression and detectable viral load.


INTRODUÇÃO: A cidade de Santarém, o polo assistencial da região oeste do Pará, carece de estudos sobre a epidemia do vírus da imunodeficiência humana (HIV), especialmente, sobre as causas de óbitos. OBJETIVO: Caracterizar o perfil sociodemográfico e clínico relacionado à evolução da infecção pelo HIV até a morte. MÉTODO: A amostra foi de 94 prontuários de pacientes de um centro de referência do município de Santarém-PA, que evoluíram a óbito entre os anos de 2010-2018. Foram levantados os dados sobre o perfil sociodemográfico, características imunológicas e clínicas dos pacientes. Os dados foram analisados por estatística descritiva e inferencial, adotando-se p<0,05. RESULTADOS: A maioria dos óbitos foi de indivíduos do sexo masculino (67%), com faixa etária do diagnóstico entre 15-29 anos (39%) e de falecimento entre 30-44 anos (41%), solteiros (54%), pardos (91,5%), procedentes de Santarém (77%) e com a relação sexual sendo o principal tipo de exposição (95,7%). A maioria dos pacientes não estava em tratamento no momento do óbito (56,4%), a principal causa de morte foi por insuficiência respiratória (5%), no qual, esses indivíduos apresentavam, no momento da morte, linfócitos TCD4+ <200 cél/mm3 (26%) e carga viral detectável (29%). CONCLUSÃO: O tempo de vida do diagnóstico ao óbito foi de 48,45±50,30 meses e a presença de imunossupressão no diagnóstico associou-se positivamente com o menor tempo de sobrevida. Contudo, o sexo não apresentou associação com o perfil imunológico, a idade no momento do diagnóstico e do óbito, apenas notou-se uma tendência das mulheres para a imunossupressão e carga viral detectável.
