ABSTRACT

Resumo Objetivo avaliar a autoeficácia de puérperas, ao longo do período puerperal, quanto ao potencial em amamentar. Método estudo longitudinal, do tipo painel, realizado de maio a dezembro de 2015, em Alojamento Conjunto de maternidade de referência de Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil, delimitado em quatro momentos. O primeiro ocorreu por contato presencial na maternidade e os três contatos subsequentes foram realizados por meio telefônico aos dois, quatro e seis meses pós-parto. A amostra foi de 66 puérperas. Resultados observou-se aumento da mediana dos escores da escala de autoeficácia em amamentar ao longo dos meses. A maioria das puérperas apresentou nível elevado de autoeficácia, entretanto, a prática do aleitamento materno exclusivo apresentou declínio progressivo, chegando a 17,9% aos seis meses. Conclusão e implicações para a prática as puérperas participantes apresentaram aumento progressivo dos escores da escala de autoeficácia ao longo do tempo, mantendo níveis de elevada e média autoeficácia em amamentar. Logo, este estudo pode direcionar novas pesquisas de intervenção, bem como subsidiar a prática holística dos profissionais que apoiam a amamentação.


Resumen Objetivo evaluar la autoeficacia de puérperas a lo largo del puerperio en cuanto a su potencialidad para amamantar. Método estudio longitudinal del tipo panel, realizado de mayo a diciembre de 2015, en el Alojamiento Conjunto de una maternidad de referencia en Fortaleza, Ceará, delimitado en cuatro momentos.

Resultados hubo un aumento en la mediana de puntuaciones de la escala de autoeficacia para lactancia materna a lo largo de los meses. La mayoría de las puérperas mostró un alto nivel de autoeficacia, sin embargo, la práctica de lactancia materna exclusiva mostró un declive progresivo llegando al 17,9% a los seis meses. Conclusión e implicaciones para la práctica Las puérperas mostraron un aumento progresivo en los puntajes de la escala de autoeficacia a lo largo del tiempo, manteniendo niveles de autoeficacia alta y media en la lactancia materna. Por lo tanto, este estudio puede orientar nuevas investigaciones de intervención, así como subsidiar la práctica holística de los profesionales que apoyan la lactancia materna.


Abstract Objective to evaluate the self-efficacy of puerperal women throughout the puerperal period regarding their potential to breastfeed. Method longitudinal panel study was performed from May to December 2015 in postpartum rooms of a reference maternity hospital in Fortaleza (Ceará State, Brazil). The study was separated into four moments: the first occurred through a face-to-face meeting at the maternity hospital, and the three subsequent encounters were made by telephone two, four, and six months postpartum. The sample was composed of 66 puerperal women. Results there was an increase in the mean scores of the self-efficacy scale for breastfeeding throughout the months, and most puerperal women showed a high self-efficacy level, although the practice of exclusive breastfeeding showed a progressive decline and reached 17.9% at six months. Conclusions and implications for practice The puerperal women showed progressively higher self-efficacy scores over time, maintaining high and medium self-efficacy levels in breastfeeding. Therefore, this study can direct new intervention research and subsidize the holistic practice of professionals who support breastfeeding.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: la sepsis tardía por estafilococo coagulasa negativo (SCoN) es una causa común de morbimortalidad en la unidad neonatal. Los SCoN son los microorganismos más frecuentemente involucrados con aproximadamente el 50% de los casos. El objetivo de este estudio es analizar la incidencia y las características de los neonatos portadores de sepsis tardía por SCoN. Materiales y métodos: se realizó un estudio descriptivo, longitudinal, retrospectivo. Se utilizaron las bases de datos del laboratorio de microbiología del hospital y las historias clínicas electrónicas para obtener la información. El período de estudio analizado fueron los años 2018 y 2019 en la unidad de cuidados intensivos e intermedios de recién nacidos del Centro Hospitalario Pereira Rossell. Resultados: obtuvimos una incidencia de 2,5% de los ingresos a cuidados intensivos e intermedios (25 pacientes). La edad gestacional al nacer fue de 28 semanas (25,0-35,0) y la mediana del peso fue de 1.070 g (730,0-2.365,0). La media de edad gestacional posmenstrual al momento del diagnóstico fue de 32,92±7,921 semanas. Por sospecha de sepsis precoz, 17 pacientes habían recibido un curso de antibióticos previo. El signo clínico más frecuentemente observado fue el deterioro del estado general, en 11 pacientes, seguido de distensión abdominal en 6 y fiebre en 5. Dentro de los SCoN, el más frecuentemente aislado fue el Staphylococcus epidermidis (13 pacientes); 22 pacientes recibieron tratamiento, 18 de ellos con vancomicina-meropenem y 4 con monoterapia con vancomicina. Conclusión: estos patógenos representan una causa importante de morbimortalidad en la unidad neonatal, particularmente en pacientes que presentan mayor gravedad y mayor necesidad de soporte vital. Se necesitan pautas claras de interpretación del rol de estos microorganismos y de abordaje de pacientes con riesgo de sepsis tardía, incluyendo el tratamiento antibiótico empírico.


Introduction: Coagulase Negative Staphylococci (CoNS) late onset sepsis is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). CoNS are the most frequently isolated microorganisms and total 50% of cases. The objective of this study is to analyze the incidence and characteristics of newborns carriers of late onset CoNS. Materials and methods: we performed a descriptive, retrospective, longitudinal study. Data was obtained from the hospital's microbiology laboratory database and electronic medical records. Patients included were those admitted to NICU during the period between 2018 and 2019. Results: we obtained an incidence of 2.5% of patients admitted to the NICU (25 patients). Median gestational age at birth was 28 weeks 25.0-35.0 and median birth weight was 1.070 g 730.0-2365.0. Mean gestational age at the time of diagnosis was 32.92±7.921 weeks. 17 patients had received an antibiotics course at birth because of early onset sepsis suspicion. The most frequently observed clinical symptom was deterioration of general condition, 11 patients, followed by abdominal distention in 6 and fever in 5. Among CoNS, the most frequently isolated pathogen was Staphylococcus epidermidis (13 patients). 22 patients received treatment, 18 a combination of vancomycin and meropenem and 4 received vancomycin monotherapy. Conclusion: these pathogens are a common cause of morbidity and mortality in the newborn intensive care unit, particularly in patients with more serious conditions and in those who require more advanced life support measures. Clearer interpretation of their role is needed as well as to determine a proper approach to patients at risk of late onset sepsis, including empiric antibiotic treatment.


Sepse tardia para Staphylococcus coagulase negativa (SCoN) é uma causa comum de morbidade e mortalidade na unidade neonatal. SCoNs são os microrganismos mais frequentemente envolvidos e representam aproximadamente 50% dos casos. O objetivo deste estudo é analisar a incidência e as características de neonatos com sepse tardia por SCoN. Materiais e métodos: foi realizado um estudo descritivo, longitudinal e retrospectivo. Usamos os bancos de dados do laboratório de microbiologia e prontuários médicos eletrônicos de nosso hospital para obter as informações. O período de estudo analisado foi de 2018 e 2019 na unidade de terapia intensiva e intermediária para recém-nascidos do Centro Hospitalar Pereira Rossell. Resultados: obtivemos uma incidência de 2,5% de internações em Terapia Intensiva e Intermediária (25 pacientes). A idade gestacional ao nascer foi de 28 semanas 25,0-35,0 e o peso médio foi de 1070g 730,0-2365,0. A média da idade gestacional pós-menstrual no momento do diagnóstico foi de 32,92 ± 7,921 semanas. 17 pacientes haviam recebido um curso anterior de antibióticos por suspeita de sepse precoce. O sinal clínico mais frequentemente observado foi deterioração do estado geral em 11 pacientes, seguido por distensão abdominal em 6 e febre em 5. Dentre os SCoN, o mais isolado foi o Staphylococcus Epidermidis (13 pacientes). 22 pacientes receberam tratamento, 18 deles com Vancomicina-Meropenem e 4 com Vancomicina em monoterapia. Conclusão: esses patógenos representam uma importante causa de morbimortalidade na unidade neonatal, principalmente em pacientes com maior gravidade e maior necessidade de suporte de vida. Orientações claras são necessárias para interpretar o papel desses microrganismos e para abordar pacientes com risco de sepse tardia, incluindo tratamento com antibióticos.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Immunosuppressive drugs have important role in transplant of solid grafts, it aim avoid episodes of acute and chronic rejection and improving graft survival and patient survival. In Brazil, in 2016, liver transplantation was the third most frequent, with 1,880 transplants performed, of which 150 in Rio Grande do Sul. Several studies evaluated the association between variability in blood levels of immunosuppressive tacrolimus and late acute cellular graft rejection. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of tacrolimus blood levels with clinical outcomes late acute cellular rejection, death, patient survival and graft survival in patients undergoing liver transplantation. METHODS: This is a retrospective longitudinal study including patients submitted to adult liver transplantation by the Liver Transplantation Group in the Santa Casa de Misericórdia Hospital of Porto Alegre, from January 2006 to January 2013, and who used tacrolimus as immunosuppressive therapy. RESULTS: Of the 127 patients included in the study, the majority were male (70.1%), 52-60 years old (33.9%) at the transplant. The most frequent causes of liver transplantation in this series were hepatitis C virus and hepatocellular carcinoma (24.4%) and alcohol (15.7%). Thirteen patients had late acute cellular rejection (10.2%); of these, three had two episodes. Regarding severity classification, seven patients had mild late acute cellular rejection. The mean time of rejection after liver transplantation was 14 months (ranging from 8 to 33 months). Overall survival was 8.98 years. Regarding tacrolimus blood levels, 52 patients with a variation ≥2 standard deviations were identified. Of these patients, eight had rejection; however, the association was not significant (P=0.146). A significant association was found between variation ≥2 standard deviations in tacrolimus blood levels and death (P=0.023) and survival (P=0.019). Regarding 5-year follow-up of graft survival, being two standard deviations above increases by 2.26 times the risk of transplanted graft loss, and for each unit of increase of standard deviation of tacrolimus blood levels there is a two-fold increase in the risk of graft loss in 5 years. CONCLUSION: Increased risk of graft loss associated with increased standard deviations of tacrolimus blood levels may indicate the need for more rigorous and prospective monitoring of tacrolimus blood levels.


RESUMO CONTEXTO: Os imunossupressores desempenham importante papel no transplante de órgãos sólidos, com o objetivo de evitar a rejeição aguda e crônica, aumentando o tempo de sobrevida do órgão e do paciente. No Brasil, em 2016, o transplante de fígado foi o 3° mais frequente, com um número de 1.880 transplantes, sendo 150 realizados no Rio Grande do Sul. OBJETIVO: Investigar a associação da variação dos níveis sanguíneos de tacrolimo com os desfechos clínicos, rejeição celular aguda tardia, óbito, sobrevida de paciente e enxerto em pacientes submetidos ao transplante hepático. MÉTODOS: Trata-se de um estudo longitudinal retrospectivo, no qual foram incluídos os pacientes submetidos ao transplante hepático adulto pelo grupo de transplante hepático na Irmandade Santa Casa de Misericórdia de Porto Alegre, no período de janeiro de 2006 a janeiro de 2013, e que fizeram o uso de tacrolimo como terapia imunossupressora. RESULTADOS: Dos 127 pacientes incluídos no estudo, a maioria era do gênero masculino (70,1%), caucasiana (86,4%), com idade entre 52 e 60 anos (33,9%). As associações de causas mais frequentes para transplante hepático foram vírus da hepatite C, carcinoma hepatocelular (24,4%) e álcool (15,7%). Um total de treze pacientes apresentaram rejeição celular aguda tardia (10,2%); destes, três tiveram dois episódios. O tempo médio de rejeição após o transplante hepático foi de 14 meses, variando de 8 a 33 meses. A sobrevida global foi de 8,98 anos. Em relação aos níveis sanguíneos de tacrolimo, foram identificados 52 pacientes com uma variação maior ou igual a dois desvios-padrão. Destes pacientes, oito tiveram rejeição, contudo, a associação não foi significativa (P=0,146). Foi encontrada uma associação significativa entre a variação maior ou igual a dois desvios-padrão nos níveis sanguíneos de tacrolimo com óbito (P=0,023) e sobrevida (P=0,019). Em relação ao acompanhamento de sobrevida do enxerto em cinco anos, estar dois desvios-padrão acima aumenta em 2,26 vezes o risco de perda do enxerto transplantado, e a cada unidade de aumento de desvio-padrão dos níveis sanguíneos de tacrolimo há um aumento de duas vezes no risco de perda do enxerto transplantado em 5 anos. CONCLUSÃO: O aumento do risco da perda do enxerto associado ao aumento da variação dos níveis sanguíneos de tacrolimo pode indicar a necessidade do acompanhamento mais rigoroso e prospectivo dos níveis sanguíneos de tacrolimo.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Con el protocolo LPM-TOA para el tratamiento de la leucemia promielocítica se obtienen excelentes resultados, se prolonga la sobrevida global y es posible la curación de los enfermos. En la de inducción a la remisión se utilizan dos drogas, una antraciclina y trióxido de arsénico, y en la consolidación los enfermos reciben de nuevo una dosis elevada de arsénico. Objetivo: Evaluar la toxicidad hepática tardía en pacientes con leucemia promielocítica tratados según el protocolo LPM-TOA. Métodos: Se realizó estudio longitudinal prospectivo que incluyó20 pacientes tratados con dicho protocolo, todos con más de dos años de haberlo suspendido. Se revisaron las historias clínicas para evaluar mediante los valores iniciales y evolutivos de las enzimas hepáticas, la función hepática inicial y evolutiva. Se determinó el índice de Ritis para predecir evolución a la cronicidad de existir daño hepático. Resultados: Hombres y mujeres se presentaron con la misma frecuencia y la media para la edad del sexo masculino fue 36,39 y para el femenino 39, con desviación estándar de ±14,02 y ±9,43, respectivamente. La variedad morfológica más frecuente fue la hipergranular, el promedio del índice de Ritis fue de solo 1,006 con desviación estándar de 0,745. Conclusiones: No hubo evidencias clínica ni enzimática de toxicidad hepática tardía en los pacientes estudiados(AU)


Introduction: With the LPM-TOA protocol for the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia, excellent results are obtained, overall survival is prolonged and the patients are cured, in the induction to remission two drugs are used, an anthracycline and arsenic trioxide, and in consolidation the patients again receive a high dose of arsenic. Objective: To assess late liver toxicity in patients with promyelocytic leukemia treated according to the PML-TOA protocol. Methods: A prospective longitudinal study was carried out that included 20 patients treated with this protocol, all with more than two years of having suspended treatment. The clinical histories were reviewed and by means of the initial and evolutionary values of liver enzymes, the initial and evolutionary liver function was evaluated and the Ritis index was determined to predict evolution to chronicity if there is liver damage. Results: Men and women presented with the same frequency and the mean age for males was 36.39 and for females it was 39, with a standard deviation of ± 14.02 and ± 9.43 respectively. The most frequent morphological variety was hypergranular, the average Ritis index was only 1.006 with a standard deviation of 0.745. Conclusions: There was no clinical or enzymatic evidence of late liver toxicity in the patients studied(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La videolaparascopía es un procedimiento frecuente en los servicios de urgencias de cirugía general. El dolor agudo después de estas intervenciones es de naturaleza compleja y requiere un tratamiento analgésico efectivo. Objetivo: Determinar la utilidad del empleo de bupivacaína intraperitoneal en el alivio del dolor posoperatorio en la videolaparascopía de urgencia. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio longitudinal prospectivo y analítico en 80 pacientes mayores de 18 años, anunciados para videolaparoscopía bajo anestesia general orotraqueal en el servicio de urgencias del HMC: Dr. Luis Díaz Soto, desde septiembre de 2016 hasta septiembre de 2018. Los pacientes fueron divididos aleatoriamente en dos grupos de 40 cada uno. Al grupo 1 se aplicó lidocaína transdérmica preincisional en las incisiones de piel y, al término de la cirugía, se irrigaron ambos hemidiafragmas con bupivacaína al 0,25 por ciento. Al grupo 2 se le administró dosis preincisional de analgésicos endovenosos solamente. Resultados: Predominó significativamente el sexo femenino sin diferencia entre grupos. La analgesia posoperatoria fue mejor en el grupo 1 estadísticamente significativa a las 4, 8 y 12 horas. Los requerimientos de analgesia de rescate fueron menores en el grupo 1 (p=0,0024). No se reportaron efectos adversos. Conclusiones: La administración de lidocaína transdérmica preincisional y la instilación de bupivacaína intraperitoneal al final de la videolaparoscopía de urgencia, reduce significativamente el dolor en las primeras horas de posoperatorio. Su aplicación es sencilla, fácil y segura sin evidencias de efectos adversos(AU)


Introduction: Videolaparoscopy is a frequent general surgery procedure in emergency services. Acute pain after these interventions is complex in nature and requires effective analgesic treatment. Objective: To determine the usefulness of intraperitoneal bupivacaine in the relief of postoperative pain in emergency videolaparoscopy. Methods: A prospective, analytical and longitudinal study was carried out in eighty patients older than eighteen years old, announced for videolaparoscopy under orotracheal general anesthesia in the emergency department of Hospital Militar Central Dr. Luis Díaz Soto, from September 2016 to September 2018. The patients were randomly divided into two groups of forty individuals each. Group 1 was applied pre-incisional transdermal lidocaine on skin incisions and, at the end of surgery, both hemidiaphragms were irrigated with bupivacaine 0.25 percent. Group 2 received pre-incisional doses of intravenous analgesics only. Results: The female sex predominated significantly, without difference between the two groups. Postoperative analgesia was better in group 1, insofar it was statistically significant at four, eight and twelve hours. Rescue analgesia requirements were lower in group 1 (p=0.0024). No adverse effects were reported. Conclusions: The administration of pre-incisional transdermal lidocaine and the instillation of intraperitoneal bupivacaine at the end of emergency videolaparoscopy significantly reduces pain during the first hours after surgery. Its application is simple, easy and safe, without evidence of adverse effects(AU)

ABSTRACT

Identificar e comparar ao longo do período de residência de ortopedia a presença de dificuldades emocionais nos profissionais em treinamento. MÉTODO: estudo prospectivo composto por 13 residentes homens, média de idade de 26 anos. Foi utilizado o Método de Rorschach (SC) aplicado no 1º mês do R1 (T0), no 12º mês do R1 (T2) e no 9º mês do R3 (T3) RESULTADOS: elevada quantidade de respostas MOR em T0, que diminuiu acentuadamente ao longo do tempo (T3). Com relação as variáveis FD S, ambas apresentaram mínima diminuição de T0 para T3, contudo, mostraram-se aumentadas expressivamente em T2. Os residentes iniciam o R1 apresentando componentes autodepreciativos, que se dissipam ao longo do tempo e mantêm as características de autocobrança e autoinspeção. CONCLUSÃO: a residência médica não se apresenta deletéria, contudo, pode ser fonte potencializadora de vulnerabilidades emocionais principalmente durante o primeiro ano devido à inexperiência, ritmo e intensidade da tarefa médica. (AU)


The aim was to identify and compare the presence of emotional difficulties during the orthopedic residency period of professional medical training. This prospective study included 13 male residents, with a mean age of 26 years. The Rorschach (SC) instrument was applied in the 1st month of R1 (T0), after 12 months of R1 (T2) and after 9 months of R3 (T3). There were high amounts of MOR responses at T0, which decreased markedly over time (T3). The FD and S variables showed a minimal decrease from T0 to T3, however, increased significantly at T2. The residents began R1 presenting self-deprecating components, which dissipated over time, with the maintenance of self-inspection and self-burdening as traits. The medical residency program does not appear to be harmful, however, it may be a source of emotional vulnerability, especially during the first year due to the inexperience and the pace and intensity of the medical tasks.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Evaluar la efectividad del Ocular Trauma Score como factor pronóstico de la agudeza visual final en pacientes con diagnóstico de catarata traumática. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio descriptivo, longitudinal y de evaluación de un sistema pronóstico en una serie de 61 casos. Los pacientes fueron divididos en dos grupos de acuerdo con el mecanismo del trauma. Se estudió la relación entre la agudeza visual a los tres meses después de la cirugía de catarata y las variables demográficas y clínicas. El resultado visual se predijo mediante el Ocular Trauma Score y se comparó con el obtenido. Resultados: La mediana de la edad de los pacientes estudiados fue de 52,8 (RI: 44,0-63,0) años. Los pacientes con antecedentes de trauma abierto tendieron a ser más jóvenes: 50,5 (RI: 43,0-54,0) años de edad vs. 57,0 (RI: 45,5-65,5) años. Predominaron los pacientes del sexo masculino (85,2 por ciento) y de baja escolaridad (55,7 por ciento). Se observó mejoría de la agudeza visual mejor corregida después de la cirugía, en particular en los pacientes con trauma cerrado. El Ocular Trauma Score pronosticó adecuadamente para agudeza visual de 20/40 o más. Conclusiones: Se logran buenos resultados con el uso del Ocular Trauma Score como factor pronóstico de la agudeza visual en pacientes con diagnóstico de catarata traumática(AU)


Objective: Evaluate the effectiveness of the Ocular Trauma Score as a prognostic factor for final visual acuity in patients diagnosed with traumatic cataract. Methods: A descriptive longitudinal evaluative study was conducted of a prognostic system in a series of 61 cases. The patients were divided into two groups according to the trauma mechanism. An analysis was performed of the relationship between visual acuity three months after cataract surgery and clinical and demographic variables. Visual outcome was predicted with the Ocular Trauma Score and then compared with the result obtained. Results: Mean age of the patients studied was 52.8 (IR 44.0-63.0) years. Patients with a history of open trauma tended to be younger: 50.5 (IR: 43.0-54.0) years vs. 57.0 (IR: 45.5-65.5) years. A predominance was found of male sex (85.2 percent) and a low educational level (55.7percent. Best corrected visual acuity was found to improve after surgery, particularly in patients with closed trauma. The Ocular Trauma Score predicted appropriately for visual acuity values of 20/40 or higher. Conclusions: Good results are obtained with the use of the Ocular Trauma Score as a prognostic factor for visual acuity in patients diagnosed with traumatic cataract(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La enfermedad de Crohn consiste fundamentalmente en el control de los síntomas para alcanzar la remisión clínica, cuando esto no se logra o aparecen complicaciones, puede ser necesario el tratamiento quirúrgico. Objetivo: Evaluar los resultados del tratamiento quirúrgico de los pacientes con enfermedad de Crohn complicada. Método: Se realizó un estudio ambispectivo, descriptivo y longitudinal con una muestra de 20 pacientes con enfermedad de Crohn complicada que acudieron a la consulta de cirugía general y gastroenterología del Hospital Clínico Quirúrgico "Hermanos Ameijeiras" y del Instituto de Gastroenterología, en el periodo de enero del 2010 a mayo del 2019. Se recogieron todas las variables demográficas; estudios hemoquímicos, por imágenes y endoscópicos. Resultados: La mayor incidencia de las complicaciones por enfermedad de Crohn se observó en pacientes mayores de 50 años, con un tiempo de evolución entre 1 y 10 años. La fístula y el plastrón fueron las principales causas de tratamiento quirúrgico. La vía de acceso laparoscópica mostró ventajas respecto a la convencional. El desequilibrio hidromineral y la infección del sitio quirúrgico fueron las principales complicaciones postoperatorias, con mortalidad baja. Conclusiones: El tratamiento quirúrgico electivo, planificado y secuencial de pacientes con enfermedad de Crohn complicada ofrece buenos resultados y es posible utilizar la vía de acceso videoasistida con resultados alentadores en pacientes seleccionados(AU)


Introduction: The managment of Crohn's disease consists in symptoms control for achieving clinical remission. When this is not accomplished or complications reappear, surgical treatment may be necessary. Objective: To assess the outcomes of surgical treatment of patients with complicated Crohn's disease. Method: An ambispective, descriptive and longitudinal study was carried out with a sample of twenty patients with complicated Crohn's disease who attended the general surgery and gastroenterology consultation at Hermanos Ameijeiras Clinical Surgical Hospital and the Gastroenterology Institute, in the period from January 2010 to May 2019. All demographic variables were collected, as well as the results of hemochemical, imaging and endoscopic studies. Results: The highest incidence of complications from Crohn's disease was observed in patients over fifty years of age and with an evolution time between one and ten years. Fistula and plastron were the main causes for surgical treatment. The laparoscopic approach showed advantages over the conventional one. Hydromineral imbalance and surgical site infection were the main postoperative complications, with low mortality. Conclusions: Elective, planned and sequential surgical treatment of patients with complicated Crohn's disease offers good outcomes. It is possible to use the video-assisted approach, with encouraging outcomes in selected patients(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La influenza tiene elevado impacto en la mortalidad humana y en Cuba la categoría influenza y neumonía ocupa el cuarto lugar entre sus causales generales. En los países templados, con marcada estacionalidad, esto se capta con modelos estadísticos, tarea que se dificulta en el trópico y pendiente en Cuba por la ausencia de igual definición estacional. Objetivo: Estimar el impacto histórico de la influenza tipo A y B y los subtipos A(H3N2) y A(H1N1) sobre la mortalidad mediante el ajuste de un modelo de regresión a las condiciones estacionales específicas de Cuba. Métodos: Se ejecutó un estudio longitudinal y retrospectivo. En un primer paso se ajustaron dos modelos de Poisson con la mortalidad influenza y neumonía total y las personas ≥ 65 años de edad como variables respuestas en los cinco meses de mayor positividad en influenza, desde la temporada 1987-1988 hasta la 2004-2005 y los positivos en tipo A y en tipo B como explicatorias. En otro par de modelos se estimó el impacto del A(H3N2) y el A(H1N1), considerando como respuesta los fallecidos atribuidos previamente al tipo A. Resultados: Se atribuyeron a la influenza 7803 fallecidos entre todas las edades y 6152 entre las personas ≥ 65 años de edad, con un 56,3 por ciento asociados al A(H3N2), el 17,6 por ciento al A(H1N1) y el 26,1 por ciento al tipo B. Conclusiones. Se logró estimar el impacto de la influenza sobre la mortalidad mediante el ajuste para Cuba de un modelo estadístico que permitió demostrar la asociación de la circulación de estos virus con la mortalidad en el país, lo que ratifica la necesidad de reforzar la vigilancia, el control y la vacunación contra esta infección viral. Se demuestra la posibilidad de ajustar estos modelos de regresión a otros virus respiratorios y a la actual pandemia por la COVID-19, en las condiciones estacionales de Cuba(AU)


Introduction: Influenza has a high impact on human mortality and in Cuba influenza and pneumonia rank fourth among its general causes. In temperate climate countries, with marked seasonality, this is captured by statistical models, a task that is difficult in the tropics and pending in Cuba due to the absence of the same seasonal definition. Objective: Estimate the historical impact of influenza type A and B and subtypes A(H3N2) and A(H1N1) on mortality, by adjusting a regression model to the specific seasonal conditions of Cuba. Methods: A longitudinal and retrospective study was performed. In a first step, two Poisson models were adjusted with influenza and total pneumonia mortality and people ≥ 65 years old as response variables in the five months with the highest positivity to influenza in the period 1987-1988 to 2004-2005, and the positive ones to type A and type B as explanatory variables. In another pair of models was estimated the impact of A(H3N2) and A(H1N1), considering as a response the deaths previously attributed to type A. Results: 7 803 deaths among all ages and 6 152 among 65-year-olds were attributed to influenza, with 56.3 percent associated to A(H3N2), 17.6 percent to A(H1N1) and 26.1 percent to type B. Conclusions: It was possible to estimate the impact of influenza on mortality by adjusting for Cuba a statistical model that demonstrated the association of the circulation of these viruses with the mortality in the country, which confirms the need to strengthen surveillance, control and vaccination against this viral infection. The possibility of adjusting in the seasonal conditions of Cuba these regression models to other respiratory viruses and the current pandemic by COVID-19 is demonstrated(AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract The study investigated the relationship between genetic polymorphisms and the development of oral mucositis in pediatric patients undergoing chemotherapy involving methotrexate. A longitudinal study was conducted with 64 patients, and oral mucositis was evaluated by the modified Oral Assessment Guide, which aims to diagnose and classify oral mucositis. Epithelial cells were obtained by mouthwash and DNA was extracted. The polymorphisms MTHFR (rs1801133), DNMT3B (rs2424913), ABCC2 (rs717620), ABCG2 (rs2231137) and ABCG2 (rs2231142) were analyzed by PCR-RFLP method. Demographic, hematological and biochemical data were collected from medical records. Statistical analysis was performed using the SPSS software adopting a p-value of 0.05. Male sex predominated (56.2%), and the mean age was 10.8 years (± 4.9). Oral mucositis affected 65.6% of the patients, of which 61.9% developed the severe form of the disease. For the ABCG2 gene (rs2231142), the rare A allele and CA genotype were more frequent in individuals with mucositis (p= 0.02; RR = 0.60; CI = 0.387 - 0.813). The severity of the disease was mainly observed in younger patients (median = 9 years; p=0.02). Patients with severe oral mucositis presented lower leukocytes count (median = 2.150 mm3) compared to patients with the mild/moderate form (median = 4.200 mm3; p=0.03). Female patients and each 10,000-platelet increase were protective factors against the onset of oral mucositis (p=0.02). It is concluded that rs2231142 polymorphism increases the likelihood of oral mucositis and younger patients and patients with low leukocytes counts are more likely to develop severe form.


Resumo O presente estudo investigou a relação entre cinco polimorfismos genéticos e o desenvolvimento de mucosite oral em pacientes pediátricos recebendo quimioterapia com metrotexato. O estudo longitudinal foi conduzido com 64 pacientes e a mucosite oral avaliada pelo Oral Assessment Guide modificado, que tem como objetivo diagnosticar e classificar a mucosite oral. Células epiteliais bucais foram obtidas por bochecho e o DNA foi extraído. Os polimorfismos MTHFR (rs1801133), DNMT3B (rs2424913), ABCC2 (rs717620), ABCG2 (rs2231137) e ABCG2 (rs2231142), foram analisados pela técnica de PCR-RFLP. Dados demográficos, hematológicos e bioquímicos foram coletados a partir de registros médicos. Análise estatística foi realizada utilizando o software SPSS adotando um valor de p=0,05. Observou-se que, o sexo masculino foi predominante (56,2%), e a idade média foi de 10,8 anos (± 4.9). A mucosite oral acometeu 65,6% dos pacientes, dos quais, 61,9% desenvolveram a forma grave da doença. Para o gene ABCG2 (rs2231142), o alelo raro A e o genótipo CA foram mais frequentes em indivíduos com mucosite (p= 0.02; RR = 0.60; CI = 0.387 - 0.813). A gravidade da doença foi observada principalmente em pacientes mais jovens (mediana = 9 anos; p=0.02). Além disso, os pacientes com mucosite oral grave apresentaram menor contagem de leucócitos (mediana = 2150 mm3) em comparação aos pacientes com a forma leve/moderada (mediana = 4200 mm3; p=0.03). Pacientes do sexo feminino e aumento a cada 10.000 plaquetas foram fatores de proteção contra o aparecimento de mucosite oral (p=0.02). Concluiu-se que a presença do polimorfismo rs2231142 aumenta o risco de o paciente desenvolver a mucosite oral, bem como pacientes mais jovens e menor contagem de leucócitos contribui com a severidade.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: The use of immunosuppressive drugs after liver transplantation (LT) is associated with the development of systemic arterial hypertension (SAH), in addition to other comorbidities of metabolic syndrome. OBJECTIVE: Therefore, the purpose of this study was to analyze the time after use immunosuppressive drugs the patient progresses to SAH, as well as to identify its prevalence and the factors that may be correlated to it. METHODS: A retrospective and longitudinal study was conducted, based on the analysis of medical records of 72 normotensive patients, attended in the transplant unit of a university hospital, between 2016 and 2019. RESULTS: It was observed, on average, 9±6.98 months after immunosuppressive use, the patients were diagnosed with hypertension, and the prevalence of transplanted patients who evolved to SAH in this study was 59.64% (41 patients). In addition, there was a correlation between serum dosage of tacrolimus and the development of SAH (P=0.0067), which shows that tacrolimus has a significant role in the development of SAH. Finally, it was noticed that the development of post-transplantation hypertension indicates a higher risk of the patient presenting the other parameters of metabolic syndrome, as well as a higher impairment in its renal function (P=0.0061). CONCLUSION: This study shows that the patients evolved to SAH in an average of 9±6.98 months after immunosuppressive drug use. We have also found high prevalence of systemic arterial hypertension (59.64%) in patients after liver transplantation, who used calcineurin inhibitors, especially when associated with the use of tacrolimus.


RESUMO CONTEXTO: O uso de imunossupressores pós-transplante de fígado (TF) está associado ao desenvolvimento de hipertensão arterial sistêmica (HAS), além de outras alterações da síndrome metabólica. OBJETIVO: Sendo assim, o objetivo deste estudo foi analisar a partir de quando tempo após o uso do imunossupressor o paciente evolui para HAS, assim como, identificar a sua prevalência e outros fatores que podem estar relacionados, como injuria renal. MÉTODOS: Realizou-se um estudo retrospectivo, longitudinal, baseado em análise de 72 prontuários de pacientes, atendidos na unidade de transplante de um hospital universitário, que não apresentavam hipertensão arterial prévia, entre período de 2016 a 2019. RESULTADOS: Observou-se que, em média, 9±6,98 meses após uso do imunossupressor, os pacientes foram diagnosticados com hipertensão arterial sistêmica, sendo que a prevalência de pacientes transplantados que evoluíram para HAS, neste estudo, foi de 59,64% (41 pacientes). Além disso, verificou-se uma correlação entre a dosagem sérica de tacrolimus e o desenvolvimento de HAS (P=0,0067), o que evidencia que o tacrolimus tem uma atuação significativa no desenvolvimento da hipertensão arterial sistêmica. Por fim, percebeu-se que o desenvolvimento de HAS pós-transplante indica um maior risco de paciente apresentar os outros parâmetros da síndrome metabólica, como também maior prejuízo na sua função renal (P=0,0061). CONCLUSÃO: Este estudo mostra que os pacientes evoluíram para HAS em média 9±6,98 meses após o início do uso do imunossupressor. Verificou-se também alta prevalência de hipertensão arterial sistêmica (59,64%) em pacientes pós-transplante de fígado, que usavam inibidores de calcineurina, principalmente, quando associado ao uso de tacrolimus.

ABSTRACT

Las complicaciones cardiovasculares representan la principal causa de morbilidad y mortalidad en pacientes con enfermedad renal crónica, por lo que el objetivo de este artículo es demostrar la influencia de la permanencia de la fístula arteriovenosa sobre variables eco cardiográficamente mensuradas en el corazón izquierdo. Para ello, se definió un estudio multivariable, longitudinal, prospectivo y controlado de grupos independientes después de una intervención que incluyó 39 pacientes a los que se le cerró el angioacceso (grupo de estudio) y 42 que no fueron expuestos a la cirugía (grupo control). Ambos grupos exhibían trasplante renal funcionante. Los principales resultados surgenal comparar el predominio entre el grupo de estudio con el de control, la edad promedio; 45,6 y 44,1 años, el sexo masculino, 24 (60%) y 23 (53,5%) y el color de la piel blanca; 33 (82,5%) y 32 (74,4%). La etiología de la nefropatía originaria más frecuente fue la nefropatía vascular hipertensiva; 12 (30%) vs 14 (32,6%). Entre las manifestaciones clínicas, en el grupo de estudio se evidenció remisión de las palpitaciones y la disnea de esfuerzo. Respecto a la tensión arterial, para la sistólica oscilaba; de 123 ±13,4 a 120,5 ±9,2 vs de 125,6 ±8,4 a 128 ±8,3 mm Hg (p= 0,000), mientras la diastólica variaba de; 76,8 ±7,5 a 76,3 ±6,2 vs 78,6 ±4,9 a 82,4 ±3,9 mm Hg (p= 0,000). El hematocrito comportaba valores equivalentes; 0,43 ±0,06 y 0,45 ±0,06 vs 0,42 ±0,05 y 0,42 ±0,06 l/l (p= 0,035) y la creatinina sérica mostró descenso en los pacientes intervenidos de; 106,8 ± 26,2 hasta 99,8 ±23,9 µ Mol/l vs 114 ±27,8 a 120,3 ±31 µ Mol/l (p= 0,002). Las variables ecocardiográficas mensuradas comparativamente según la localización de los angioaccesos a nivel del codo izquierdo; diámetro del ventrículo izquierdo: 3,12 ±4,08 vs 1,48 ±3,46 mms (p=0,001), fracción de eyección del ventrículo izquierdo: 2,99 ±5,47 vs -1,98 ±6,23 % (p=0,018) y el volumen telediastólico: -23 ±33,41 vs 10,86 ±36,87 ml (p=0,006). El codo contralateral revelaba; para la fracción de eyección del ventrículo izquierdo: 3,32 ±3,42 vs -2,18 ±4,78 % (p=0,037) y para el gasto cardíaco: -1,29 ±0,88 vs -0,26 ±0,86 l/min (0,020). Las conclusiones demuestran que el cierre del angioacceso a pacientes con trasplante renal funcionante respecto a los no intervenidos, contribuye a la regresión de las alteraciones morfológicas y hemodinámicas constatadas por ecocardiografía transtorácica en el corazón izquierdo a nivel de las diferentes localizaciones de los accesos vasculares.


Cardiovascular complications represent the main cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic renal disease, so the objective of this article is to demonstrate the influence of the patency of the arteriovenous fistula on echocardiographic variables measured in the left heart. For this, a multivariate study, longitudinal, prospective and controlled study of independent groups after an intervention that included 39 patients who had their angioaccess closed (study group) and 42 who were not exposed to surgery (control group). Both groups exhibited functional kidney transplantation. The main results emerge when comparing the prevalence between the study group and the control group, the average age; 45.6 and 44.1 years, the male sex, 24 (60%) and 23 (53.5%) and the white skin color; 33 (82.5%) and 32 (74.4%). The most frequent etiology of the original nephropathy was hypertensive vascular nephropathy; 12 (30%) vs 14 (32.6%). Among the clinical manifestations, remission of palpitations and dyspnea on exertion were evidenced in the study group. With regard to blood pressure, for the systolic it ranged from 123 ±13.4 to 120.5 ±9.2 vs. 125.6 ±8.4 to 128 ±8.3 mmHg (p= 0.000), while the diastolic varied from; 76.8 ±7.5 to 76.3 ±6.2 vs. 78.6 ±4.9 to 82.4 ±3.9 mmHg (p= 0.000). The hematocrit had equivalent values; 0.43 ±0.06 and 0.45 ±0.06 vs 0.42 ±0.05 and 0.42 ±0.06 l/l (p= 0.035) and the serum creatinine showed decrease in the operated patients from; 106.8 ±26.2 to 99.8 ±23.9 µMol/l vs 114 ±27.8 to 120.3 ±31 µMol/l (p= 0.002). The echocardiographic variables measured comparatively according to the location of the angioaccesses at the left elbow level; diameter of the left ventricle: 3.12 ±4.08 vs 1.48 ±3.46 mms (p=0.001), ejection fraction of the left ventricle: 2.99 ±5.47 vs -1.98 ±6.23 % (p=0.018) and the telediasolic volume: -23 ±33.41 vs 10.86 ±36.87 ml (p=0.006). The contralateral elbow revealed; for the left ventricular ejection fraction: 3.32 ±3.42 vs -2.18 ±4.78 % (p=0.037) and for cardiac output: -1.29 ±0.88 vs -0.26 ±0.86 l/min (0.020). The conclusions show that the our study has shown that closing the angioaccess to patients with functioning renal transplants with respect to those not operated, contributes to the regression of morphological and hemodynamic alterations observed by transthoracic echocardiography in the left heart at the different locations of the vascular accesses.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: En el mundo moderno, el traumatismo es la primera causa de mortalidad y discapacidad en menores de 35 años. Múltiples son los esfuerzos para tratar de definir su pronóstico desde el momento en que se produce. Con el decurso de los años se han creado varias escalas, para describir la gravedad de las lesiones, las alteraciones fisiológicas que se producen, así como para evaluar los sistemas de atención. Objetivo: Describir el comportamiento de los lesionados en el Hospital "Calixto García" según variables. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio observacional descriptivo, prospectivo y longitudinal en 1582 lesionados atendidos en el servicio de Cirugía General. Resultados: El intervalo trauma/ingreso superó los 60 minutos en un número elevado y la mitad de ellos presentó parámetros clínicos de inestabilidad hemodinámica en la recepción; se logró su compensación en la primera hora de admitidos en 7 de cada 10 lesionados. Más de la mitad desarrolló alguna complicación y predominó la estadía hospitalaria entre 15 y 21 días. Conclusiones: Algunas de las variables estudiadas se comportaron similar a la literatura consultada. Los resultados sugieren la necesidad de implementar un programa de atención prehospitalaria al lesionado más efectivo para mejorar la atención y el índice de sobrevida en los mismos(AU)


Introduction: In the modern world, trauma is the leading cause of death and disability in people under 35 years of age. Multiple efforts are made to define its prognosis from the moment it occurs. Over the years, several scales have been created to describe the severity of injuries, the physiological changes that occur, as well as to assess care systems. Objective: To describe the behavior of injured patients in Calixto García Hospital according to variables. Methods: A observational, descriptive, prospective and longitudinal study was carried out with 1582 injured patients treated in the general surgery service. Results: The trauma/admission interval exceeded sixty minutes in a high number of cases. Half of them presented clinical parameters of hemodynamic instability at admission. Compensation was achieved at the first hour of admission in seven out of ten injured patients. More than half the patients developed some complication. There was a predomination of hospital stay between 15 and 21 days. Conclusions: Some of the variables studied behaved similarly to the way described in the consulted literature. The results suggest the need to implement a more effective prehospital care program for the injured patients to improve care and survival rate(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introdução: A manipulação visceral é atualmente um tratamento usado amplamente pelos osteopatas no mundo, contudo, sua base de mecanismos ainda é pouco esclarecida, havendo certa escassez de pesquisas publicadas sobre tais intervenções. O conceito para o tratamento se baseia na ação sobre aderências fáscias que supostamente afetam a hemodinâmica visceral, desregulação autonômica, fatores psicossomáticos e ptose visceral, repercutindo de maneira direta no bom funcionamento das demais estruturas do corpo. Objetivo: O estudo tem como objetivo mensurar as variações imediatas da resposta sintomática dolorosa por pressão na coluna lombar pela manipulação visceral. Métodos: Trata-se de um estudo experimental, com abordagem longitudinal e caráter quantitativo. Constituído por amostra de doze indivíduos divididos em G1 (uso de manipulação visceral), G2 (uso de placebo) e uso do algômetro de pressão nos músculos paravertebrais corresponde ao nível topográfico da quinta vértebra lombar. Para análise estatística dos dados obtidos, foi aplicado o teste t de Student para amostras pareadas no software Bioestat. Além disso, o nível de rejeição da hipótese de nulidade foi estabelecido em 0,05 ou 5%. Resultados: Obteve-se relevância em um ponto de vista estatístico na análise do grupo submetido a manipulação visceral. Quando comparado a outras evidências recentes, os resultados obtidos pelo estudo revelam dados condizentes. Conclusão: Os resultados deste estudo fornecem informações confiáveis que vão nortear a futura utilização da manipulação visceral na dor lombar crônica, mostrando bom prognóstico em curto prazo.

Introduction: Visceral manipulation is currently a treatment widely used by osteopaths worldwide, however, its basis of mechanisms is still poorly understood, and there is a lack of published research on such interventions. The concept for treatment is based on the action on fascia adhesions that supposedly affect visceral hemodynamics, autonomic dysregulation, psychosomatic factors, and visceral ptosis, directly affecting the proper functioning of other body structures. Objective: This study aimed to measure the immediate variations in the symptomatic painful response to pressure in the lumbar spine by visceral manipulation. Methods: This is an experimental study, with a longitudinal approach and quantitative character. Consisting of a sample of twelve individuals divided into G1 (use of visceral manipulation), G2 (use of placebo) and use of the pressure algometer in the paravertebral muscles corresponds to the topographic level of the fifth lumbar vertebra. For statistical analysis of the data obtained, the Student's t test was applied to paired samples using the Bioestat software. In addition, the level of rejection of the null hypothesis was set at 0.05 or 5%. Results: Relevance was obtained from a statistical point of view in the analysis of the groups submitted to visceral manipulation. When compared to other recent evidence, the results obtained by the study reveal consistent data. Conclusion: The results of this study provide reliable information that will guide the future use of visceral manipulation in chronic low back pain, showing a good prognosis in the short term. (AU)

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Describir los resultados funcionales de la blefaroplastia superior. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio descriptivo longitudinal prospectivo de 99 pacientes (198 párpados) con diagnóstico de dermatochalasis de párpado superior, algunos asociados a ptosis palpebral y de la ceja, en el Instituto Cubano de Oftalmología "Ramón Pando Ferrer", en el período comprendido de febrero del año 2019 a enero de 2020. Resultados: El 85,8 por ciento fueron del sexo femenino y el 43,5 por ciento eran mayores de 62 años. Predominó la dermatochalasis del párpado superior y la ptosis palpebral en el 68,4 por ciento, así como la dermatochalasis y la ptosis palpebral severa, las cuales representaron el 47,5 y el 50 por ciento respectivamente. En el grupo de 56 a 61 años sobresalió la dermatochalasis del párpado superior y la ptosis de la ceja, con el 61 por ciento. En el 98 por ciento de los casos intervenidos se obtuvo la corrección total de la dermatochalasis del párpado superior, la corrección de la ptosis en el 86 por ciento y de la ceja en el 88 por ciento. No se presentaron complicaciones en el 94 por ciento de los párpados intervenidos. La complicación más frecuente fue el sangramiento, con el 2,5 por ciento. Conclusiones: El abordaje de la ptosis palpebral y de las cejas transblefaroplastia superior logra en la mayoría de los pacientes la corrección total de estas afecciones y de la dermatochalasis. Este procedimiento constituye una herramienta importante para el rejuvenecimiento facial(AU)


Objective: Describe the functional results of upper blepharoplasty. Methods: A prospective longitudinal descriptive study was conducted of 99 patients (198 eyelids) diagnosed with upper eyelid dermatochalasis, in some cases associated to eyelid and eyebrow ptosis. The study was carried out at Ramón Pando Ferrer Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology from February 2019 to January 2020. Results: Of the total patients studied, 85.8 percent were female and 43.5 percent were aged over 62 years. Upper eyelid dermatochalasis and palpebral ptosis prevailed with 68.4 percent, whereas severe dermatochalasis and palpebral ptosis represented 47.5 percent and 50 percent, respectively. A predominance was found of upper eyelid dermatochalasis and eyebrow ptosis in the 56-61 age group (61 percent). Total correction of upper eyelid dermatochalasis was achieved in 98 percent of the cases intervened, eyelid ptosis correction in 86 percent and eyebrow ptosis correction in 88 percent. No complications appeared in 94 percent of the eyelids intervened. The most common complication was bleeding with 2.5 percent. Conclusions: In most cases, management of palpebral ptosis and upper eyebrow transblepharoplasty achieves total correction of these disorders and dermatochalasis. The procedure is an important tool for facial rejuvenation(AU)

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Describir las características clínicas del trauma ocular a globo abierto en la zona I y su manejo en el Servicio de Urgencia. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio observacional, descriptivo, longitudinal y prospectivo a una muestra de 35 pacientes ingresados en el Instituto Cubano de Oftalmología "Ramón Pando Ferrer", entre junio del año 2016 y junio de 2017. Las variables estudiadas fueron edad, sexo, ocupación, ojo afectado, lugar del accidente, agente causal, localización, tamaño y forma de la herida, tiempo de evolución, mecanismo de producción y agudeza visual inicial, alteraciones oculares asociadas y tratamiento médico realizado, las cuales fueron procesadas en la base de datos con el uso de SPSS. Resultados: Predominó el sexo masculino, la edad menor de 50 años, el área laboral y los objetos metálicos, así como las heridas penetrantes entre 2 a 5 mm, paracentrales y lineales, asociadas a la catarata. La mayoría requirió tratamiento quirúrgico. Conclusiones: A pesar de la atención temprana y oportuna del trauma ocular a globo abierto, este representa una causa frecuente de disminución unilateral de la visión en pacientes en edad laboral, por lo que se deben intensificar las medidas de protección para su prevención(AU)


Objective: To describe clinical characteristics of open globe eye trauma in zone 1 and its management in the emergency department in patients admitted to the Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology Ramón Pando Ferrer between June 2016 and June 2017. Methods: A prospective longitudinal descriptive observational study was carried out on a sample of 35 patients. The variables studied were age, sex, occupation, affected eye, place of the accident, causal agent, location, size and shape of the wound, evolution time, production mechanism and initial visual acuity, associated ocular alterations and medical treatment that were processed in a database with SPSS. Results: the male sex under 50 years of age, work area and metal objects predominated, as well as penetrating wounds between 2 and 5 mm for central and linear associated with cataract. Most required surgical treatment. Conclusions: despite the early and timely care of open globe eye trauma, this continues to exist as a cause of unilateral decrease in vision in working-age patients, so protection measures should be intensified as a priority for its prevention(AU)
