ABSTRACT

Introdução: As lesões de nervos periféricos são mais frequentes em membros superiores (MMSS), que são importantes para as atividades de vida diárias, equilíbrio e reflexos de proteção. Alterações no sistema de controle postural podem impactar na funcionalidade desses indivíduos. Portanto, é necessário alternativas para melhorar as alterações secundárias à lesão. Objetivo: Avaliar os efeitos de um protocolo de exercícios de força, flexibilidade e equilíbrio em paciente com lesão de nervos periféricos. Métodos: Estudo de caso de abordagem quantitativa realizado na Clínica Escola de Fisioterapia da Unochapecó, entre abril e julho de 2021, totalizando 30 intervenções de 60 minutos cada. A amostra foi constituída por um paciente do sexo masculino, 46 anos com diagnóstico de lesão de nervos periféricos no MMSS direito, decorrente de um acidente motociclístico. Foi realizada avaliação inicial, aplicação do protocolo, após a realização das escalas e testes: BESTest, MiniBESTest, Romberg-Barré, Dinamometria manual isométrica, Teste de Sentar e Alcançar e Mini-Exame do Estado Mental. O protocolo continha exercícios de força, flexibilidade e equilíbrio. Os dados foram analisados através de estatística descritiva comparativa, antes e após o protocolo (média e porcentagem). Resultados: Houve melhora na força muscular, flexibilidade toracolombar (aumento de 13 cm "61,90%") e testes de equilíbrio (15,81% BESTest, 21,42% MiniBESTest e 67,16% Romberg-Barré). Conclusão: O protocolo de exercícios refletiu positivamente na melhora da flexibilidade, força muscular e equilíbrio do paciente, tornando-se uma alternativa viável para melhorar as alterações secundárias a lesão.

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of a blind technique for sciatic and femoral nerve block in rabbit cadavers by evaluating the spread of 1% methylene blue at two different volumes. Nine recently euthanized rabbits weighing 2.5(0.3kg were used. The sciatic (SN) and femoral (FN) nerves of each limb were randomly assigned for injection with 1% methylene blue at 0.2mL/kg (G0.2) or 0.3mL/kg (G0.3). Nerves were dissected and measured for depth and extension of staining (cm). Mean comparisons were performed using paired t test. The relation between volume and nerve staining ( 2cm was assessed using chi-square test. The mean depth of SN was 1.9±0.2 and 1.6±0.3cm and staining 1.9±1.4 and 2.0±1.2cm, respectively in G0.2 and G0.3. No relation was found between depth and dye spread and there was no association between nerve staining ( 2.0cm and volume of solution. The FN failed to be stained in all subjects. In conclusion, SN injection can be successfully performed without guidance in rabbits. The lower volume (0.2mL/kg) is recommended to avoid systemic toxicity.(AU)


O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a eficácia de uma técnica para bloqueio às cegas dos nervos isquiático e femoral em cadáveres de coelhos, por meio da avaliação da dispersão de azul de metileno 1% em dois volumes distintos. Nove coelhos recém-eutanasiados, com peso 2,5(0,3kg, foram utilizados. Os nervos isquiático (NI) e femoral (NF) de cada membro foram aleatoriamente designados para injeção com azul de metileno 1% a 0,2mL/kg (G0,2) ou 0,3mL/kg (G0,3). Em seguida, foram dissecados e mensurados em relação à sua profundidade e extensão corada (cm). As médias foram comparadas por meio de teste t pareado. A relação entre volume e extensão corada ( 2cm foi avaliada utilizando-se teste de qui-quadrado. A profundidade média do NI foi 1,9±0,2 e 1,6±0,3cm, e a extensão corada 1,9±1,4 e 2,0±1,2cm, respectivamente, no G0,2 e no G0,3. Não houve relação entre a profundidade e a extensão corada ou entre a extensão corada ( 2,0cm e o volume de solução. Não foi observada coloração do NF em nenhum cadáver. Concluiu-se que a injeção do NI pode ser realizada com sucesso sem auxílio de tecnologias em coelhos. O menor volume (0,2mL/kg) é recomendado para evitar toxicidade sistêmica.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Our previous investigation suggested that faster seventh cervical nerve (C7) regeneration occurs in patients with cerebral injury undergoing contralateral C7 transfer. This finding needed further verification, and the mechanism remained largely unknown. Here, Tinel's test revealed faster C7 regeneration in patients with cerebral injury, which was further confirmed in mice by electrophysiological recordings and histological analysis. Furthermore, we identified an altered systemic inflammatory response that led to the transformation of macrophage polarization as a mechanism underlying the increased nerve regeneration in patients with cerebral injury. In mice, we showed that, as a contributing factor, serum amyloid protein A1 (SAA1) promoted C7 regeneration and interfered with macrophage polarization in vivo. Our results indicate that altered inflammation promotes the regenerative capacity of the C7 nerve by altering macrophage behavior. SAA1 may be a therapeutic target to improve the recovery of injured peripheral nerves.

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY: Hip joint chronic pain can severely compromise patients' life quality. Peripheral nerve blocks play an important role as diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The aim of this work is to study the anatomy of the nerve to quadratus femoris (NQF) in view of the possibility of its percutaneous selective block. Forty-three gluteal cadaveric regions fixed in formaldehyde solution were dissected. The quadratus femoris, the obturator internus and superior and inferior gemellus were freed from their lateral insertion, exposing thus the posterior aspect of the hip joint. The NQF was identified, and the horizontal distance to the posterior edge of the greater trochanter at its upper, middle and lower thirds was registered. The number of the articular branches of the NQF was identified. Likewise, the horizontal distance to the posterior edge of the greater trochanter and the longitudinal distance to the line through the distal end of the posterior edge of the greater trochanter were measured. The distance between the NQF and the greater trochanter posterior edge at upper, middle and lower thirds was 46 mm, 41 mm and 35 mm, respectively. In most cases (85 %) the NQF presented one or two articular branches. The longitudinal distances between the line through the distal end of the posterior edge of the greater trochanter and the origin of the first, second and third articular branches of the NQF were 14.7 mm (-19.4 - 40), 16.4 mm (-9.3-42) and 27 mm (0-46), respectively. The distances to the posterior edge of the greater trochanter were 43.1 mm (16.3-66), 37.7 mm (6.5-53) and 39.8 mm (26-52), for the first, second and third articular branches, respectively. In conclusion, the articular branches of the nerve to quadratus femoris have a constant and predictable distribution. Our findings allow for generating a coordinate system for the selective block of the NQF by way of percutaneous techniques.


RESUMEN: El dolor crónico de la articulación coxal puede comprometer severamente la calidad de vida de los pacientes. Los bloqueos nerviosos periféricos juegan un papel importante como procedimientos diagnósticos y terapéuticos. El objetivo de este trabajo es estudiar la anatomía del nervio del músculo cuadrado femoral (NCF) en vista de la posibilidad de su bloqueo selectivo percutáneo. Se utilizaron 22 cadáveres fijados en solución de formaldehído. Fueron disecadas en total 43 regiones glúteas. Los músculos cuadrado femoral, obturador interno y los gemelos superior e inferior fueron liberados de su inserción lateral, exponiendo así la cara posterior de la articulación coxal. Se identificó el NCF y se registró la distancia horizontal al margen posterior del trocánter mayor en sus tercios superior, medio e inferior. Se identificó el número de ramas articulares del NQF. Asimismo, se midió la distancia horizontal al margen posterior del trocánter mayor y la distancia longitudinal a la línea que pasa por el extremo distal del margen posterior del trocánter mayor. La distancia entre el NCF y el margen posterior del trocánter mayor en los tercios superior, medio e inferior fue de 46 mm, 41 mm y 35 mm, respectivamente. En la mayoría de los casos (85 %) el NCF presentó una o dos ramas articulares. Las distancias longitudinales entre la línea que pasa por el extremo distal del margen posterior del trocánter mayor y el origen de la primera, segunda y tercera ramas articulares del NQF fueron 14,7 mm (-19,4 - 40), 16,4 mm (-9,3-42) y 27 mm (0-46), respectivamente. Las distancias al margen posterior del trocánter mayor fueron 43,1 mm (16,3-66), 37,7 mm (6,5-53) y 39,8 mm (26-52), para la primera, segunda y tercera ramas articulares, respectivamente. En conclusión, las ramas articulares del nervio al cuadrado femoral tienen una distribución constante y predecible. Nuestros hallazgos permiten generar un sistema de coordenadas para el bloqueo selectivo del NCF por medio de técnicas percutáneas.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective To analyze the epidemiological profile and evolution of 20 patients diagnosed with upper- and lower-limb schwannomas. Methods A group of patients was defined for a retrospective evaluation comprising the period between February 2002 and June 2018, in which we studied and evaluated 20 medical records of patients undergoing surgery due to schwannoma; the diagnosis was confirmed by an anatomopathological examination. Results Male and female patients were equally affected. The average age was 50.85 years, ranging from 12 to 77 years. There was a predominance of the upper limb and of the flexor face. The most affected nerve was the ulnar nerve. In total, 6 (30%) patients had transient postoperative complications. No cases of tumor recurrence were identified. Conclusion Schwannoma is a rare and difficult-to-diagnose lesion. It should always be considered as a hypothesis when facing a soft-tissue tumor affecting the limbs. The Tinel sign should be regarded, given its higher correlation with complications. The patients should be informed of the possible postoperative complications, which are frequent but usually transient.


Resumo Objetivo Analisar o perfil epidemiológico e a evolução de 20 pacientes diagnosticados com schwannoma nos membros superiores e inferiores. Métodos Definiu-se um grupo de pacientes para avaliação retrospectiva, compreendendo o período entre fevereiro de 2002 e junho de 2018, no qual foram estudados e avaliados 20 prontuários de pacientes submetidos a procedimento cirúrgico devido a schwannoma; a confirmação diagnóstica foi feita pelo exame anatomopatológico. Resultados Tanto os pacientes do sexo masculino quanto do feminino foram igualmente acometidos, e a média de idade foi de 50,85 anos, variando de 12 a 77 anos. Houve predomínio do membro superior e da face flexora. O nervo mais acometido foi o ulnar, e 6 (30%) pacientes apresentaram complicações pós-operatórias transitórias. Não foi identificado nenhum caso de recidiva tumoral. Conclusão O schwannoma é uma lesão rara e de difícil diagnóstico. Deve sempre ser considerada como hipótese quando se estiver diante de um tumor de partes moles acometendo os membros. O sinal de Tinel deve ser levado em consideração por conta de sua maior correlação com as complicações. Os pacientes devem ser informados quanto às possíveis complicações pós-operatórias, que são frequentes, mas, geralmente, transitórias.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: El schwannoma (neurinoma o neurilemoma) es un tumor benigno originado en la vaina de mielina de los nervios periféricos a partir de la células de Schwann. En su variedad benigna es el tumor más frecuente dependiente de esta estructuras. Se manifiesta entre la tercera y quinta década de vida, sin distinción de género. La localización axilar es extremadamente infrecuente, constituyendo el 5% de todos los casos reportados. Los schwannomas son tumores bien delimitados y de lento crecimiento. La presentación más frecuente es como masa palpable o por la sintomatología clínica correspondiente al territorio de inervación del nervio afectado. Es importante tener en cuenta que estas lesiones puedes formar parte de cuadros clínicos de base genética más complejos como la neurofibromatosis, entre otros. El método diagnóstico de elección es la resonancia magnética nuclear. El tratamiento consiste en la extirpación de la lesión tratando de preservar la función de la estructura nerviosa afectada. Objetivo: El objetivo del presente trabajo es realizar el reporte de un caso de lesión compatible con schwannoma axilar y realizar un revisión de la literatura.


Introduction: Schwannoma (neurinoma or neurilemoma) is a benign tumor originated in myelin sheath of peripheral nerves from schwann cells. In its benign variety, it is the most frequent tumor dependent of these structures. It appears between the third and fifth decade of life without distinction of geder. Axillary location is extremely rare, accounting for 5% of all reported cases. Schwqnnomas are well-defide, slow-growing tumors. The most frequent presentation is as palpabel mass or due to the clinical symptoms corresponding to the innervation territory of the affected nerve. It's important to know that these lesions can be part of more complex genetic-based clinical cases such as neurofibromatosis. The diagnostic method of choice is magnetic resonance imaging. Treatment cosists of excising the lesion, trying to preserve the function of the affected nerve structure. Objetive: The aim of this report is to describe our experience with one case of axillary schwannoma diagnosed in our institution and to perform a review of the literature.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La neurofibromatosis (NF) se caracteriza por ser una anormalidad ectodérmica con formación de múltiples neurofibromas en todo el cuerpo. La forma más frecuente es la NF1, que se presenta con manifestaciones variables. El tumor maligno de la vaina del nervio periférico (TMVNP) es una de las formaciones tumorales que se puede ver en el contexto de esta patología. El papel de la radiología es el de caracterizar la lesión y su invasión, así como el de valorar la presencia de otras lesiones tumorales. Caso clínico: Paciente adulto, masculino, portador de Neurofibromatosis tipo I y hemorroides, acudió por hemorragia digestiva por lo que se realizó una endoscopía donde se encontró una lesión estenosante prepilórica. Se solicitó un barrido tomográfico donde se identificaron lesiones de aspecto benigno en hígado, ambas suprarrenales y una lesión tumoral de aspecto maligno en la parrilla costal izquierda. Discusión: Un avezado conocimiento de la patología con los hallazgos radiológicos que se suelen observar en estos pacientes, son de suma importancia para que el médico radiólogo pueda conocer la localización de las lesiones, tanto las clásicas como las no habituales, y orientar entre una lesión de carácter benigno con otras de carácter maligno.


Introduction: Introduction: Neurofibromatosis (NF) is characterized by ectodermal abnormality with the presence of multiple neurofibromas throughout the body. The most common form is NF1, which occurs with variable manifestations. Malignant neurilemmoma or peripheral nerve sheath malignant tumor (PNSMT) is one of the tumor formations that can be seen in the context of this pathology. The role of radiology is to characterize the injury and its invasion, as well as to assess the presence of other tumor lesions. Case report: Adult male patient, carrier of Neurofibromatosis type I and hemorrhoids, presented with digestive hemorrhage, so an endoscopy was performed where a prepyloric stenosing lesion was found. A tomographic scan was requested where benign-looking lesions were identified in the liver, both adrenal glands, also a malignant-looking tumor lesion on the left rib cage. Conclusion: An experienced knowledge of the pathology with the radiological findings that are usually observed in these patients are of utmost importance so that the radiologist can know the location of the lesions, both classic and unusual, and orient between a character injury benign with others of malignant character.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Morbid obesity is associated with various pathophysiological changes which affect the outcome of anaesthesia and surgery. So it's challenging to give anaesthesia to such patients. We present a 59-year-old adult morbidly obese, hypertensive, diabetic female with hypothyroidism operated for proximal humerus fracture and now presented with non-union of fracture, requiring percutaneous injection of bone marrow aspirate from the iliac crest to the site of non-union. The patient was extremely anxious and refused to undergo the procedure under local anaesthesia or sedation and demanded anaesthesia. Given her comorbidities general anaesthesia (GA) was avoided and the procedure was accomplished using Ultrasound (USG) guided Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block and Lateral Femoral Cutaneous Nerve (LFCN) block for the bone marrow aspirate from the iliac crest and Intercostobrachial nerve block (T2) was given to prevent pain while injecting the aspirate into the non-union site. Dexmedetomidine and ketamine were given for deep level sedation and analgesia. TAP block and LFCN block is generally used for post-op analgesia but can be also used for surgical anaesthesia instead of General anaesthesia in specific scenarios. Its perioperative application and its potential use instead of GA have been discussed.


Resumo A obesidade mórbida se associa a várias alterações fisiopatológicas que afetam o desfecho da anestesia e cirurgia. É, portanto, um desafio anestesiar tais pacientes. Apresentamos uma mulher adulta de 59 anos, obesa mórbida, hipertensa, diabética, com hipotiroidismo, submetida a cirurgia devido a fratura proximal do úmero e que compareceu ao serviço com fratura não consolidada, e com indicação de injeção percutânea de aspirado de medula óssea da crista ilíaca na fratura não consolidada. A paciente estava extremamente ansiosa e recusou o procedimento sob anestesia local ou sedação e exigiu anestesia. Em função de suas comorbidades, Anestesia Geral (AG) foi evitada e o procedimento foi realizado usando bloqueio do Plano Transverso Abdominal (PTA) guiado por Ultrassonografia (USG) e bloqueio do Nervo Cutâneo Femoral Lateral (NCFL) para aspiração de medula óssea da crista ilíaca. O bloqueio do nervo Intercostobraqueal (T2) foi realizado para evitar dor durante a injeção do aspirado. Dexmedetomidina e ketamina foram dadas para sedação profunda e analgesia. O Bloqueio PTA e bloqueio NCFL geralmente são usados para analgesia pós-operatória, mas também podem ser usados para anestesia cirúrgica substituindo a anestesia geral em condições clínicas específicas. O emprego desses bloqueios no perioperatório e seu uso potencial no lugar de AG têm sido discutidos.

ABSTRACT

To accurately localize the centers of intramuscular nerve dense regions (CINDRs) of rotator cuff muscles. Twenty adult cadavers were used. The curves on skin connecting the superior angle of scapula with the acromion, and with the inferior angle of scapula were designed as the horizontal (H) and longitudinal (L) reference lines, respectively. One side of the rotator cuff muscles were removed and subjected to Sihler's staining to show intramuscular nerve dense regions, and the contralateral muscles' CINDRs were labeled with barium sulfate and scanned by computed tomography (to determine body surface projection points (P)). The intersection of the longitudinal line from point P to line H, and that of the horizontal line from point P to line L, were recorded as PH and PL, respectively. The projection of CINDRs on the anterior body surface across the saggital plane was defined as P' and the line connecting P to P' was recorded as Line PP'. Percentage positions of CINDRs of PH and PL on lines H and L, and the depths on line PP' were determined under the Syngo system. Two, four, one, and one CINDRs were identified in supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis muscles, respectively. The positions of PH of these CINDRs on the H-line are as follows: supraspinatus, 25.43 % and 26.59 %; infraspinatus, 53.85 %, 34.63 %, 35.96 % and 58.17 %; teres minor, 74.50 %; and subscapularis, 20.33 %. The PL on the L-line: supraspinatus, 11.09 % and 14.83 %; infraspinatus, 21.59 %, 27.93 %, 48.55 % and 57.52 %; teres minor, 68.28 %; and subscapularis, 52.82 %. The depth on line PP': supraspinatus, 24.83 % and 25.40 %; infraspinatus, 21.55 %, 16.10 %, 10.01 % and 8.14 %; teres minor, 13.27 %; and subscapularis, 22.88 %. The identification of these CINDRs should provide the optimal target position for injecting botulinum toxin A to treat rotator cuff muscles spasticity accompanied by shoulder pain and to improve the efficiency and efficacy of blocking target localization.


Con el objetivo de localizar con precisión los centros de las regiones densas del nervio intramuscular (CRDNI) de los músculos del manguito rotador, se utilizaron veinte cadáveres adultos. Las curvas en la piel que conectan el ángulo superior de la escápula con el acromion y con el ángulo inferior de la escápula se determinaron como líneas de referencia horizontales (H) y longitudinales (L), respectivamente. Se extrajo de un lado los músculos del manguito rotador y se sometió a la tinción de Sihler para mostrar regiones densas de nervios intramusculares, y los CRDNI de los músculos contralaterales se marcaron con sulfato de bario y se escanearon mediante tomografía computarizada (para determinar los puntos de proyección de la superficie corporal (P)). La intersección de la línea longitudinal desde el punto P a la línea H, y de la línea horizontal desde el punto P a la línea L, se registraron como PH y PL, respectivamente. La proyección de CRDNI en la superficie del cuerpo anterior a través del plano sagital se definió como P 'y la línea que conecta P a P' se registró como Línea PP '. Las posiciones porcentuales de los CRDNI de PH y PL en las líneas H y L, y las profundidades en la línea PP 'se determinaron bajo el sistema Syngo. Se identificaron dos, cuatro, uno y un CINDR en los músculos supraespinoso, infraespinoso, redondo menor y subescapular, respectivamente. Las posiciones de PH de estos CRDNI en la línea H son las siguientes: supraespinoso, 25,43 % y 26.59 %; infraspinatus, 53,85 %, 34,63 %, 35,96 % y 58,17 %; redondo menor, 74,50 %; y subescapular, 20,33 %. El PL en la línea L: supraespinoso, 11.09 % y 14.83 %; infraspinatus, 21,59 %, 27,93 %, 48,55 % y 57,52 %; redondo menor, 68.28 %; y subescapular, 52,82 %. La profundidad en la línea PP ': supraespinoso, 24,83 % y 25,40 %; infraspinatus, 21,55 %, 16,10 %, 10,01 % y 8,14 %; redondo menor, 13.27 %; y subescapularis, 22,88 %. La identificación de estos CRDNI debería proporcionar la posición objetivo óptima para inyectar la toxina botulínica A para tratar la espasticidad de los músculos del manguito rotador acompañada de dolor en el hombro y para mejorar la eficiencia y la eficacia del bloqueo de la localización del objetivo.

ABSTRACT

El nervio subescapular inferior (NSI) inerva parcialmente al músculo subescapular (MSe) e inerva también al músculo redondo mayor (MRM). Diversas publicaciones determinan amplia variación en su origen en el Plexo Braquial (PB), pero existe poca evidencia de estas variaciones y del patrón de inervación del MSe y MRM en individuos latinoamericanos. El propósito de este estudio fue describir el origen del NSI en el PB, determinar número de ramos que le entrega al MSe y los patrones de ramificación. Se utilizaron 30 miembros superiores de individuos adultos, Brasileños; 13 del lado derecho y 17 del izquierdo, fijados en formaldehido al 10 %. Se disecaron las regiones axilares para exponer el fascículo posterior del plexo braquial (FPPB) y sus ramos. Se determinó si el origen del NSI era individual o procedía de un tronco común. Se cuantificó el número de ramos para el MSe, estableciendo patrones de ramificación. El NSI y sus ramos se agruparon según su origen y ramificación. En 3 de los casos (10 %) el NSI procedía de un tronco común con el nervio toracodorsal (NTD), 2 del lado izquierdo (6,6 %) y 1 del derecho (3,3 %); en 27 casos (90 %) procedía del nervio axilar (NAx), 15 del lado izquierdo (50 %) y 12 del derecho (40 %). En ningún caso, el origen fue directo del FPPB. Además, se cuantificó el número de ramos que aportaba a la inervación del MSe, observándose un promedio de 4 ramos (de 1 a 8 ramos) para el MSe. Se identificaron 4 patrones de ramificación del NSI hacia el MSe y el MRM. Tanto el origen como la distribución del NSI presentaron variaciones. Los datos aportados complementarán los conocimientos para la correcta enseñanza, el oportuno diagnóstico y la buena práctica quirúrgica de la zona axilar.


The inferior subscapular nerve (ISN) partially innervates the subscapular muscle (SbM) and also innervates the teres major muscle (TMM). Several publications determine wide variation in their origin from Brachial Plexus (BP), but there is little evidence of these variations and the innervation pattern of SbM and TMMin Latin American individuals. The purpose of this study was to describe the origin of the ISN from PB, to determine the number of branches that it gives to the SbM and the branching patterns. 30 upper limbs of cadavers of the Brazilian adult individuals were used; 13 on the right side and 17 on the left, fixed in 10 % formaldehyde. The axillary regions were dissected to expose the posterior fascicle of the brachial plexus (PFBP) and its branches. It was determined whether the origin of the NSI was individual or came from a common trunk. The number of branches for the SbM was quantified, establishing branching patterns. The ISN and its branches were grouped according to their origin and branching. In 3 of the cases (10 %) the ISN came from a common trunk with the thoracodorsal nerve (TDN), 2 from the left side (6.6 %) and 1 from the right side (3.3 %); in 27 cases (90 %) it came from the axillary nerve (AxN), 15 from the left side (50 %) and 12 from the right side (40 %). In no case, the origin was direct from the PFBP. In addition, the number of branches that contributed to the innervation of the SbM was quantified, with an average of 4 branches (from 1 to 8 branches) being observed for the SbM. Four branching patterns of the ISN towards the SbM and the TMM were identified. Both the origin and the distribution of the ISN presented many variations. The data provided will complement the knowledge for proper teaching, timely diagnosis and good surgical practice of the axillary area.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Background and objectives: Leprosy remains a leading cause of peripheral neuropathy and disability in the world. Primary objective of the study was to determine the incidence of deformities present at a time of diagnosis and new deformities that patients develop over follow up period. Material and methods: An open, retrospective cohort study was performed at a tertiary medical center in western India. Recruitment phase of the study was of 2 years (2009-2010) followed by observation/follow up phase of 7 years till 31st December 2017. New patients with leprosy and released from treatment cases who presented with deformity as defined by WHO disability grade (1998) and subsequently developing new deformities during the follow up period of up to 7 years were included in the study. Results: The study included 200 leprosy patients. Of the total 254 deformities, 168 (66.14%) deformities were noticed at the moment of diagnosis, 20 (7.87%) deformities occurred during the follow up phase. Of all patients, 21.25% had Grade 1 deformity and 6.31% had Grade 2 or more severe deformity. Deformities of hand were most common in 44.48%, followed by feet 39.76%, and face 15.74% respectively. Limitation of study: Mode of inclusion of patient was self-reporting during follow up phase so there is possible under reporting of the disabilities. Conclusion: New deformities continue to develop in certain forms of leprosy even after release from treatment. Long-term & regular follow up of patients who have been released from treatment is required.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Background and objectives: To evaluate the single-injection and triple-injection techniques in infraclavicular blocks with an ultrasound-guided medial approach in terms of block success and the need for supplementary blocks. Methods: This study comprised 139 patients who were scheduled for elective or emergency upper-limb surgery. Patients who received an infraclavicular blocks with a triple-injection technique were included in Group T (n = 68). Patients who received an infraclavicular blocks with a single-injection technique were included in Group S (n = 71). The number of patients who required supplementary blocks or had complete failure, the recovery time of sensory blocks and early and late complications were noted. Results: The block success rate was 84.5% in Group S, and 94.1% in Group T without any need for supplementary nerve blocks. The blocks were supplemented with distal peripheral nerve blocks in 8 patients in Group S and in 3 patients in Group T. Following supplementation, the block success rate was 95.8% in Group S and 98.5% in Group T. These results were not statistically significant. A septum preventing the proper distribution of local anesthetic was clearly visualized in 4 patients. The discomfort rate during the block was significantly higher in Group T (p < 0.05). Conclusion: In ultrasound-guided medial-approach infraclavicular blocks, single-injection and triple-injection techniques did not differ in terms of block success rates. The need for supplementary blocks was higher in single injections than with triple injections. The presence of a fascial layer could be the reason for improper distribution of local anesthetics around the cords.


Resumo Justificativa e objetivos: Avaliar as técnicas de injeção única e tripla no bloqueio infraclavicular, empregando-se acesso medial guiado por ultrassonografia, comparando-se o sucesso do bloqueio e a necessidade de bloqueios complementares. Método: O estudo incluiu 139 pacientes com indicação de cirurgia de membro superior eletiva ou de emergência. O Grupo T (n = 68 pacientes) recebeu bloqueio infraclavicular com técnica de injeção tripla e o Grupo S (n = 71), bloqueio infraclavicular com injeção única. Registrou-se o número de pacientes que necessitaram bloqueio complementar de nervo ou que apresentaram falha completa do bloqueio, o tempo de recuperação do bloqueio sensorial e as complicações precoces e tardias. Resultados: A taxa de sucesso do bloqueio infraclavicular, sem necessidade de bloqueio complementar de nervo, foi 84,5% e 94,1% para os Grupos S e T, respectivamente. No bloqueio infraclavicular foi necessário bloqueio de nervos periféricos distais em 8 e 3 pacientes dos Grupos S e T, respectivamente. Após a complementação, a taxa de sucesso do bloqueio foi 95,8% e 98,5% para os Grupos S e T, respectivamente. Os resultados não foram estatisticamente significantes. Imagem de septo impedindo a distribuição adequada do anestésico local foi claramente visualizada em quatro pacientes. A taxa de desconforto durante a realização do bloqueio foi estatatisticamente mais alta no Grupo T (p< 0,05). Conclusões: As técnicas de injeção única e tripla em bloqueio infraclavicular guiado por ultrasonografia com acesso medial não diferiram quanto à taxa de sucesso. A necessidade de bloqueio complementar foi maior com a técnica de injeção simples. A ocorrência de invólucro de fascia poderia justificar a distribuição inadequada do anestésico local ao redor dos fascículos do plexo.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND@#Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN), Lewis-Sumner syndrome (LSS), and many chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathies (CIDPs) are representative of acquired multifocal polyneuropathy and are characterized by conduction block (CB). This retrospective study aimed to investigate the demyelinating distribution and the selective vulnerability of MMN, LSS, and CIDP with CB (CIDP-CB) in nerves.@*METHODS@#Fifteen LSS subjects (107 nerves), 24 MMN subjects (176 nerves), and 17 CIDP-CB subjects (110 nerves) were included. Their clinical information was recorded, blood and cerebrospinal fluid tests were conducted, and nerve conductions of the median, ulnar, radial, peroneal, and tibial nerves were evaluated. CB, temporal dispersion, distal motor latency (DML), and F-wave latency were recorded, and nerve conduction velocity, terminal latency index, and modified F-wave ratio were calculated.@*RESULTS@#CB was more likely to occur around the elbow in CIDP-CB than in MMN (78.6% vs. 6.8%, P < 0.01) but less likely to occur between the wrist and the elbow than in LSS (10.7% vs. 39.3%, P < 0.05). Tibial nerve CB was most frequently observed in MMN (47.4%, P < 0.05). CIDP-CB was characterized by a prolonged DML in all nerves, and slow motor nerve velocity of the upper limb was significant when CB nerves were excluded (P < 0.05).@*CONCLUSIONS@#We report the different distributions of segmental and diffuse demyelination of the ulnar and tibial nerves in LSS, MMN, and CIDP-CB. These distinct distributions could help in differentiating among these conditions.

ABSTRACT

La reconstrucción de nervios periféricos con aloinjertos nerviosos acelulares humanos en neurocirugía ha sido bastante estudiada estableciendo su predictibilidad y éxito en intervenciones principalmente en los nervios digitales de las manos. En cirugía maxilofacial existe una creciente investigación para poder restaurar el nervio alveolar inferior en cirugías de resección mandibular en donde la extirpación de esta estructura nerviosa es inevitable. El objetivo de esta publicación es mostrar un reporte de un caso en donde se realizó la reconstrucción del nervio alveolar inferior con aloinjerto de nervio acelular humano (Avance® Nerve Graft, Axogen) con microcirugía para poder proveer de sensibilidad a la región de la cara afectada en un paciente reconstruido con un injerto de fíbula microvascularizada posterior a una hemimandibulectomía por ameloblastoma plexiforme.


The reconstruction of peripheral nerves with allografts of human acellular nerves in neurosurgery is well studied, establishing its predictability and success in interventions mainly in the digital nerves of the hands. In maxillofacial surgery there is a growing investigation to be able to restore the inferior alveolar nerve in mandibular resection surgeries where the removal of this nervous structure is inevitable. The objective of this publication is to show a case report in which the reconstruction of the inferior alveolar nerve was performed with human acellular nerve allograft (Avance® Nerve Graft, Axogen) with microsurgery in order to provide sensitivity to the region of the affected face in a reconstructed patient with a microvascularized bone fibula graft after hemimandibulectomy due to plexiform ameloblastoma.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To identify the scientific literature on the quality of life of people with leprosy sequelae and its relation to self-care. Method:An integrative literature review was conducted in July 2018. The databases PubMed, LILACS, EMBASE, and Google Scholar were used. Nine articles that met the following inclusion criteria were analyzed: published between 2008 and 2017, free full-text available online, written in Portuguese or English, and addressing the themes quality of life, self-care, and leprosy. For data extraction, the selected articles were read in full. Data analysis was descriptive. Results:By discussing the quality of life of people with leprosy sequelae, the studies showed that the physical domain was the most affected, causing a self-care deficit. Few data have been published on quality of life and its relation to self-care. Conclusion:Thinking through self-care is a need due to the lack of studies on the theme, which has been emerging, as it is known that self-care may favor a significant improvement in the quality of life of people with leprosy sequelae.


Objetivo: Identificar a produção científica acerca da qualidade de vida dos sujeitos com sequelas pela hanseníase e sua relação com o autocuidado. Método: Realizou-se, em julho de 2018, uma revisão integrativa da literatura. Foram utilizadas as bases de dados PubMed, Lilacs, EMBASE e Google Acadêmico. Analisaram-se 9 artigos que atenderam aos seguintes critérios de inclusão: publicados entre 2008 e 2017, disponíveis na íntegra on-line e gratuitamente, escritos em língua portuguesa ou inglesa e que abordassem as temáticas qualidade de vida, autocuidado e hanseníase. Para extração dos dados, fez-se a leitura na íntegra dos artigos selecionados. A análise dos dados foi descritiva. Resultados: Ao discutir a qualidade de vida dos sujeitos com sequelas pela hanseníase, os estudos mostraram que o domínio físico foi o mais comprometido, ocasionando déficit no autocuidado. Poucos dados foram publicados sobre qualidade de vida e sua relação com o autocuidado. Conclusão: Refletir sobre o autocuidado é uma necessidade diante da carência de estudos sobre o tema, que se torna emergente, na medida em que se sabe que o autocuidado pode favorecer a melhora significativa da qualidade de vida dos sujeitos com sequelas pela hanseníase.

ABSTRACT

The objective of the study was to evaluate the anatomical characteristics and variations of the palmaris longus nerve branch and define the feasibility of transferring this branch to the posterior interosseous nerve without tension. Thirty arms from 15 adult male cadavers were dissected after preparation with 20 % glycerin and formaldehyde intra-arterial injection. The palmaris longus muscle (PL) received exclusive innervation of the median nerve in all limbs. In most it was the second muscle of the forearm to be innervated by the median nerve. In 5 limbs the PL muscle was absent. In 5 limbs we identified a branch without sharing branches with other muscles. In 4 limbs it shared origin with the pronator teres (PT), in 8 with the flexor carpi radialis (FCR), in 2 with flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS), in 4 shared branches for the PT and FCR and in two with PT, FCR, FDS. The mean length was (4.0 ± 1.2) and the thickness (1.4 ± 0.6). We investigated whether the branch for PL was long enough to be transferred to the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN). The branch diameter for PL corresponds to 46 % of the PIN. The PL muscle branch presented great variability. The PL branch could be transferred to the PIN proximally to the Froshe arcade without tension in all specimens even with full range of motion of the forearm. In 13 limbs was possible the tensionless transfer to PIN distal to the branches of the supinator muscle.


El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar las características anatómicas y las variaciones del ramo del músculo palmar largo y definir la posibilidad de transferir este ramo al nervio interóseo posterior sin tensión. Se disecaron 30 miembros superiores de 15 cadáveres de hombres adultos después de su preparación con 20 % de glicerina y formaldehído, inyectados por vía intraarterial. En todos los miembros el músculo palmar largo (PL) recibió inervación exclusiva del nervio mediano. En la mayoría de los casos, fue el segundo músculo del antebrazo inervado por el nervio mediano. En 5 miembros estaba ausente el músculo. En 5 miembros identificamos un ramo sin compartir ramos con otros músculos. En 4 miembros, compartió el origen con el músculo pronador redondo (PR), en 8 con el músculo flexor radial del carpo (FRC), en 2 con el músculo flexor superficial de los dedos (FCSD), en 4 ramos compartidos para el PR y FRC y en dos con PR, FRC, FCSD. La longitud media fue (4,0±1,2 cm) y el grosor (1,4±0,6 cm). Investigamos si el ramo del PL era lo suficientemente largo para ser transferido al nervio interóseo posterior (NIP). El diámetro del ramo para el PL corresponde al 46 % del NIP. El ramo del músculo PL presentó una gran variabilidad. El ramo del PL podría transferirse al NIP proximalmente a la «arcada de Frohse¼, sin tensión, en todas las muestras, incluso con el rango completo de movimiento del antebrazo. En 13 miembros fue posible la transferencia sin tensión al NIP distal a los ramos del músculo supinador.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective The purpose of this anatomical study was to analyze the possibility of transferring radial nerve branches to the supinator muscle to reinnervate the posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) originating from the C7-T1 roots. Methods Thirty members of 15 cadavers, all male, prepared with an intra-arterial glycerol and formaldehyde solution injection, were dissected. Results All dissected limbs presented at least one branch intended for the superficial and the deep heads of the supinatormuscle. These branches originated fromthe PIN. A branch to the supinator muscle, proximal to the arcade of Frohse, was identified in six members. In addition, 2 and 3 branches to the supinator muscle were found in 11 and 4 members, respectively. In two limbs, only one branch detached from the PIN, but it duplicated itself proximal to the arcade of Frohse. Seven limbs had no branches to the supinatormuscle at the region proximal to the arcade of Frohse. The branches destined for the supinator muscle were sectioned at the neuromuscular junction for connection with no tension to the PIN. The combined diameter of the branches for the supinator muscle corresponded, on average, to 53.5% of the PIN diameter. Conclusion The radial nerve branches intended for the supinator muscle can be transferred, with no tension, directly to the PIN to restore thumb and finger extension in patients with C7-T1 brachial plexus lesions.


Resumo Objetivo O objetivo deste estudo anatômico, foi analisar a possibilidade de transferir os ramos do nervo radial destinados ao músculo supinador para reinervar o nervo interósseo posterior (NIP), que se origina das raízes C7-T1. Métodos Foram dissecados 30 membros de 15 cadáveres, todos do sexo masculino, preparados por injeção intra-arterial de uma solução de glicerina e formol a 10%. Resultados Em todos os membros dissecados, encontramos pelo menos um ramo destinado a cada uma das cabeças - superficial e profunda - do músculo supinador. Esses tiveram origem no NIP. Identificamos, proximal à arcada de Frohse, umramo para o supinador em seis membros; 2 ramos para o supinador em 11 membros e 3 ramos em 4 membros. Em dois membros, apenas um ramo desprendia-se do NIP, mas se duplicava proximalmente à arcada de Frohse. Em sete membros, não identificamos ramos para o supinador proximal à arcada de Frohse. Os ramos destinados ao músculo supinador foram seccionados na junção neuromuscular, podendo ser conectados sem tensão ao NIP. O diâmetro somado dos ramos destinados ao músculo supinador correspondeu, em média, a 53,5% do diâmetro do NIP. Conclusão Este estudo anatômico mostra que ramos do nervo radial destinados ao músculo supinador podem ser transferidos diretamente para o NIP semtensão para restaurar a extensão do polegar e dos dedos em pacientes com lesões de plexo braquial C7-T1.

ABSTRACT

Schwannomas of the female genital tract are extremely uncommon. They are usually benign, and simple excision is the adequate treatment. The case of a 57-year-old woman with a cellular schwan-noma of the vagina is described, in addition to a summarized literature review of schwannomas in the female genital tract. Complete excision was performed, and the histological report confirmed to be a vaginal Schwannoma. Due to its possibility to occur, even if in a very low incidence scenario, Schwan-nomas should not be excluded from the differential diagnosis of a vaginal mass. (AU)


Schwannomas do trato genital feminino são extremamente raros. São tumores geralmente benignos e a excisão simples é o tratamento adequado. Neste artigo descreve-se o caso de uma mulher de 57 anos com Schwannoma vaginal, além de uma revisão resumida da literatura sobre schwannomas no trato genital feminino. A excisão completa foi realizada e o estudo histológico confirmou o diagnóstico de Schwannoma vaginal. Devido à sua possibilidade de ocorrer, mesmo num cenário de incidência muito baixa, os Schwannomas não devem ser excluídos do diagnóstico diferencial de massas vaginais (AU)

ABSTRACT

Introdução: Os tumores neurais são lesões, que têm origem nos nervos periféricos e representam um percentual de 45% dos neoplasmas, que atingem a região de cabeça e pescoço. A alta incidência nessa área é justificada pela quantidade relativamente grande de terminações nervosas periféricas agrupadas. Ainda que sejam de mesma origem neural, sua heterogeneidade microscópica e patogenética lhes conferem um variado padrão de apresentação clínica e histopatológica, diferindo na sua forma de tratamento. O objetivo do presente estudo foi analisar, por meio da técnica imuno-histoquímica, a expressão das proteínas S100 e CD68 em tumores neurais, localizados na cavidade bucal de pacientes atendidos no Serviço de Patologia Bucal da Universidade de Odontologia de Pernambuco. Metodologia: Todos os casos referentes a tumores neurais do Serviço de Patologia oral e maxilofacial da Faculdade de Odontologia de Pernambuco foram revistos. Avaliaram-se dados relativos à idade, ao sexo e à localização anatômica. A técnica imunohistoquímica foi realizada por meio do método estreptavidina-biotina, utilizando-se os anticorpos anti: S100 e CD68. A análise foi feita de forma descritiva, conforme dados da pesquisa. Resultados: foram avaliados 23 casos de tumores neurais da cavidade bucal, 15 neurofibromas, 6 neuromas traumáticos, 1 neurilemoma e 1 neuroma encapsulado em paliçada. Verificou-se que a proteína S100 foi expressa em todos os casos estudados com positividade variada, e a proteína CD68 apresentou expressão positiva em 18 casos (neuroma traumático, neurofibroma). Conclusões: os tumores neurais da cavidade bucal foram considerados raros, visto que ocorreram em apenas 23 casos entre 5.761, ou seja, em 2,3% das lesões biopsiadas da FOP-UPE... (AU)


Introduction: Neural tumors are lesions that originate from peripheral nerves and represent a percentage of 45% of neoplasms that reach the head and neck region. The high incidence in this area is explained by the relatively large number of grouped peripheral nerve endings. Although they are of the same neural origin, their microscopic and pathogenetic heterogeneity give them a varied pattern of clinical and histopathological presentation, as well as differing in their form of treatment. The aim of the present study was to analyze by immunohistochemical technique the expression of S100 and CD68 proteins in neural tumors located in the oral cavity of patients treated at the Oral Pathology Service of the University of Dentistry of Pernambuco. Methodology: All cases referring to neural tumors of the Service of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology of the School of Dentistry of Pernambuco were reviewed. Data regarding age, sex, and anatomical location were evaluated. The immunohistochemical technique was performed by the streptavidin-biotin method using the anti-S100 and CD68 antibodies. The analysis was made in a descriptive way according to the research data. Results: 23 cases of neural tumors of the buccal cavity, 15 neurofibromas, 6 traumatic neuromas, 1 neurilemoma and 1 palisade encapsulated neuroma were evaluated. It was verified that S100 protein was expressed in all the cases studied with varied positivity, and the CD68 protein showed positive expression in 18 cases (traumatic neuroma, neurofibroma). Conclusions: Neural tumors of the oral cavity were considered rare, since they occurred in only 23 cases among 5,761, that is, 2.3% of FOP-UPE biopsied lesions... (AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Interscalene block (ISB) is the brachial plexus approach most frequently used in shoulder surgery, providing better postoperative analgesia and reducing the need for rescue morphine compared to general anesthesia. While it is considered a safe block, it has been associated with a relatively high rate of complications, the most serious of which are postoperative neurologic symptoms, such as paresthesia, dysesthesia, and reduced sensitivity. We present the case of a patient with prolonged neurological deficit lasting 4 months following nerve stimulation-guided ISB. Due to the multifactorial nature of postoperative neurological lesions, it can be difficult to determine their etiology. In our case, the brachial plexopathy was probably due to the administration of local anesthetic through the perineurium. We discuss possible causes and argue for the use of ultrasound associated with nerve stimulation when an ISB is performed in order to reduce the incidence of nerve puncture.


Resumen El bloqueo Interescalénico (BIE) es el abordaje al plexo braquial usado con mayor frecuencia en cirugía de hombro, que permite una mejor analgesia postoperatoria y reduce la necesidad de morfina de rescate, en comparación con la anestesia general. Si bien es cierto que se considera un bloqueo seguro, se ha asociado a una tasa de complicaciones relativamente alta, siendo la complicación más seria los síntomas neurológicos postoperatorios (SNPO), tales como parestesia, disestesia, y pérdida de la sensibilidad. Presentamos el caso de un paciente con déficit neurológico prolongado de 4 meses de duración, luego de BIE guiado por neuroestimulación. Debido a la naturaleza multifactorial de las lesiones neurológicas postoperatorias, puede ser difícil determinar su etiología. En nuestro caso, la plexopatía braquial se debió posiblemente a la administración de anestésico local (AL) a través del perineuro. Hacemos referencia a las posible causas y la opción de ultrasonido asociado a la neuroestimulación cuando se realiza un bloqueo interescalénico, a fin de reducir la incidencia de punción del nervio.
