RESUMO

ABSTRACT Objectiv:e to analyze the relationship of anxiety and depression in the preoperative period with the presence of pain in the postoperative period. Method: cohort study conducted at a university hospital in the state of Minas Gerais (Brazil), between february and July 2017, with 65 patients. A collection instrument was elaborated for the demographic and clinical characteristics. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale was used to assess anxiety and depression; pain intensity was measured using the Verbal Numerical Scale. Data were submitted to descriptive and inferential statistical analysis. Results: according to demographic and clinical characteristics, most patients were female, with a median age of 44 years and surgical specialty of the digestive tract. In the preoperative period, 31 (47.7%) had anxiety, and nine (13.8%), depression. None of the patients reported pain immediately prior to surgery. The incidence of moderate to severe postoperative pain was 32 (49.2%) patients. There was a statistically significant difference in the distribution of patients with postoperative pain in relation to the presence or absence of preoperative anxiety (p value <0.001). There is no statistically significant difference in the distribution of patients with postoperative pain in relation to the presence or absence of preoperative depression (0.733). In multivariate analysis, preoperative anxiety was a predictive factor for postoperative pain. Depression was not a predictive factor of postoperative pain. Conclusion: It was demonstrated that, regardless of the demographic and clinical characteristics of the studied sample, the presence of anxiety in patients in the preoperative period is a predictive factor of postoperative pain.


RESUMEN Objetivo: analizar la relación de la ansiedad y la depresión en el período pre-operatorio con la presencia del dolor pre-operatorio. Método: estudio realizado en un hospital universitario en el estado de Minas Gerais (Brasil), entre febrero y julio de 2017, con 65 pacientes. Se elaboró un instrumento de recolección para las características demográficas y clínicas. A Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale se utilizó para evaluar la ansiedad y la depresión; La intensidad del dolor se midió utilizando la Escala Numérica Verbal. Los datos fueron sometidos a análisis estadístico descriptivo e inferencial. Resultados: según las características demográficas y clínicas, la mayoría de los pacientes eran mujeres, con una edad media de 44 años y especialidad quirúrgica del tracto digestivo. En el período pre-operatorio, 31 (47.7%) tenían ansiedad y nueve (13.8%), depresión. Ninguno de los pacientes informó dolor inmediatamente antes de la cirugía. La incidencia de dolor pos-operatorio moderado a intenso fue de 32 (49,2%) pacientes. Hubo una diferencia estadísticamente significativa en la distribución de pacientes con dolor pos-operatorio en relación con la presencia o ausencia de ansiedad pre-operatoria (valor de p <0,001). No existe una diferencia estadísticamente significativa en la distribución de pacientes con dolor pos-operatorio en relación con la presencia o ausencia de depresión pre-operatoria (0.733). En el análisis multivariable, la ansiedad pre-operatoria fue un factor predictivo para el dolor pos-operatorio. La depresión no fue un predictor de dolor pos-operatorio. Conclusión: se demostró que, independientemente de las características demográficas y clínicas de la muestra estudiada, la presencia de ansiedad en pacientes en el período pre-operatorio es un factor predictivo de dolor pos-operatorio.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Objective: to understand the meaning of work activities for young women with breast cancer. Method: a qualitative study that used as a theoretical framework the Symbolic Interactionism and, as the methodological framework, the Discourse of the Collective Subject. It was developed in a mastology outpatient clinic and a mastectomized rehabilitation center whose data collection took place between February 2014 and January 2015. Twelve women between 18 and 40 years old with up to one year of diagnosis of breast cancer participated, being excluded those with metastasis; interviewed from the guiding question: how is it for you to be young with breast cancer, in relation to work? Thematic content analysis was applied. Results: the following theoretical categories emerged: young women's feelings about having to stop working due to breast cancer and its treatments; quitting work meant annoyance and discouragement; change in income and collection by herself raised concern about the financial contribution; physical changes changing work activities, meaning limitation and impairment; work as an opportunity to live a better life, as a meaning of freedom; lack of collaboration of colleagues in the work environment whose significance was difficulties in the work environment; solidarity and positivity at work and family support that provided them with encouragement to cope with the disease. Conclusion: it was difficult to experience and accept changes in work activities. The support of family, friends and coworkers was paramount to cope with this process, which should also be taken into account by the health team, especially nursing.


RESUMO Objetivo: compreender o significado das atividades de trabalho para mulheres jovens com câncer de mama. Método: estudo qualitativo que utilizou como referencial teórico o Interacionismo Simbólico e, metodológico, o Discurso do Sujeito Coletivo. Desenvolvido em um ambulatório de mastologia e em um núcleo de reabilitação de mastectomizadas cuja coleta de dados ocorreu entre fevereiro de 2014 e janeiro de 2015. Participaram 12 mulheres entre 18 e 40 anos com até um ano de diagnóstico do câncer de mama, sendo excluídas aquelas com metástase; entrevistadas a partir da questão norteadora: Como é para você ser jovem com câncer de mama, em relação ao trabalho? Foi aplicada a análise de conteúdo temática. Resultados: emergiram as seguintes categorias teóricas: sentimentos das mulheres jovens por terem que parar de trabalhar devido ao câncer de mama e a seus tratamentos; parar de trabalhar significou chateação e desânimo; modificação na renda e cobrança por parte de si mesma gerou preocupação com o aporte financeiro; modificações físicas mudando as atividades laborais, significando limitação e prejuízo; trabalho como oportunidade de viver uma vida melhor, como significado de liberdade; ausência de colaboração dos colegas no ambiente laboral cujo significado foi dificuldades no ambiente laboral; solidariedade e positividade no trabalho e apoio familiar que lhes forneceram encorajamento para enfrentar a doença. Conclusão: foi difícil vivenciar e aceitar as alterações nas atividades de trabalho. O apoio de familiares, amigos e colegas de trabalho foi primordial para o enfrentamento desse processo, a que também deve atentar-se a equipe de saúde, especialmente, a enfermagem.

RESUMO

RESUMEN Fundamento: las pacientes mastectomizadas requieren atención individualizada por los enfermeros quienes les ofrecerán los cuidados necesarios durante su estancia hospitalaria y les orientarán sobre el cuidado que deben seguir al egreso, por lo que es pertinente explorar su nivel de conocimientos sobre este tema. Objetivo: determinar el nivel de conocimientos de los enfermeros sobre el cuidado a las pacientes mastectomizadas en el Hospital Universitario Oncológico "Celestino Hernández Robau". Métodos: se realizó un estudio descriptivo en el mencionado hospital en el periodo septiembre-diciembre de 2018. Se utilizaron métodos teóricos: análisis-síntesis, inducción-deducción e histórico-lógico; y empíricos: entrevista semiestructurada a enfermeros e informantes clave. Resultados: el nivel de conocimientos de los enfermeros sobre los cuidados a las pacientes mastectomizadas resultó adecuado, aunque existen algunas carencias relacionadas con rubros de autocuidado al egreso, en los que su orientación es fundamental: la movilización de drenajes, cubrir el brazo afecto con calor, la reincorporación al trabajo, la realización moderada de deportes y guiar los ejercicios de rehabilitación. Conclusiones: a partir de estos resultados se considera la necesidad de una capacitación con contenidos actualizados en aspectos específicos del autocuidado, porque además de ser conocedores de su profesión, estos enfermeros también deben capacitarse como promotores de salud.


ABSTRACT Background: mastectomized patients require individualized attention by the nurses who will offer them the necessary care during their hospital stay and will guide them on the care they should follow when they leave hospitalization, so it is pertinent to explore their level of knowledge on this topic. Objective: to determine the level of knowledge of nurses about caring for mastectomized patients at the "Celestino Hernández Robau" University Oncological Hospital. Methods: a descriptive study was carried out in the mentioned hospital from September-to December 2018. Theoretical methods were used: analysis-synthesis, induction-deduction and historical-logical; and empirical ones: semi-structured interview with nurses and key informants. Results: the level of knowledge of nurses about care for mastectomized patients was adequate, although there are some shortcomings related to self-care items at discharge, in which its orientation is fundamental: the mobilization of drains, cover the affected arm with heat, the return to work, the moderate performance of sports and guide rehabilitation exercises. Conclusions: based on these results, the need for training with updated content on specific aspects of self-care is considered, because in addition to being knowledgeable about their profession, these nurses must also be trained as health promoters.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Purpose: To explore the International Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma Database Consortium (IMDC) model application for predicting outcome of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma using targeted agents. Materials and Methods: We performed a literature review of 989 articles. The selecting process used preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses (PRISMA). All included studies were assessed by Newcastle-Ottawa scale. Results of individual studies were pooled using Stata 14.0 software. Results: A total of 17 articles were included. Most articles provided univariate and multivariate analysis of IMDC model prognosis. Combined HRs were 1.58 (95% CI 1.34-1.82) and 3.74 (95% CI 2.67-4.81) for univariate PFS of intermediate to favorable and poor to favorable respectively. In the category of multivariate PFS, combined HRs were 1.27 (95% CI 0.99-1.56) and 2.29 (95% CI 1.65-2.93) with intermediate to favorable and poor to favorable respectively. Regarding univariate OS, combined HRs were 1.93 (95% CI 1.62-2.24) and 6.25 (95% CI 4.18-8.31) with intermediate to favorable and poor to favorable respectively. With multivariate OS, combined HRs were 1.32 (95%CI 1.04-1.59) and 2.35 (95%CI 1.69-3.01) with intermediate to favorable and poor to favorable respectively. Conclusion: In summary, analysis of currently available clinical evidence indicated that IMDC model could be applied to classify patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma using targeted agents. However, different types of targeted agents and various areas could affect the accuracy of the model. There was also a difference in predicting patients' PFS and OS.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Purpose: Spongioplasty (mobilization and midline approximation of the two branches of the bifid dysplastic distal corpus spongiosum) can form a covering layer for the neourethra to prevent urethrocutaneous fistula in hypospadias repair surgery. However, it remains unclear whether spongioplasty affects neourethral function. The objective of this study was to compare neourethral function after hypospadias repair with and without spongioplasty. Materials and Methods: Fourteen congenital hypospadiac New Zealand male rabbits were randomly allocated into two groups, seven animals underwent Duplay hypospadias repair and spongioplasty (experimental group), while seven underwent Duplay surgery alone (control group). Functional differences between groups were assessed by comparing neourethral compliance and flow rate. Two months after surgery, in vivo neourethral compliance was assessed by measuring intraluminal pressure with a digital pressure meter of an isolated neourethral segment, following progressive distension with 1, 2, and 3mL of air. Penises were harvested for uroflowmetry test using a simple device. Results: Postoperatively, fistula developed in one and zero rabbits in the control and experimental groups, respectively. Mean pressures tended to be higher in the experimental group than in the control group (82.14 vs. 69.57, 188.43 vs. 143.26, and 244.71 vs. 186.29mmHg for 1, 2, and 3mL of air, respectively), but the difference was not statistically significant. Mean flow rates also did not significantly differ between the experimental and control groups (2.93mL/s vs. 3.31mL/s). Conclusion: In this congenital rabbit model, no obvious functional differences were found between reconstructed urethras after hypospadias repair with and without spongioplasty.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Introduction: Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is the mainstay of therapy for advanced prostate cancer. Studies addressing the efficacy of different depot formulations of long acting luteinizing hormone releasing hormone agonists in the Brazilian population are lacking. We aimed to compare the efficacy of three schedules of leuprolide acetate in lowering PSA in a real world population. Materials and Methods: We reviewed the medical records of patients with prostate cancer seen at our institution between January 2007 and July 2018. We analyzed patients treated with long-acting leuprolide acetate and grouped these patients into three strata according to the administration of ADT every 1, 3 or 6 months. The primary outcome was the serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels at 6 and 12 months after treatment initiation. We used Friedman test to compare the distribution of PSA levels at baseline and at 6 and 12 months within each treatment stratum. We considered two-sided P values <0.05 as statistically significant. We analyzed toxicity descriptively. Results: We analyzed a total of 932 patients, with a median age of 72 years and a median time since diagnosis of prostate cancer of 8.5 months. ADT was administered monthly in 115 patients, quarterly in 637, and semiannually in 180. Nearly half of the patients had locally advanced disease. In comparison with baseline, median serum PSA levels were reduced at 12 months by at least 99.7% in the three strata (P <0.001 in all cases). Sexual impotence and hot flashes were the most frequently reported toxicities. Conclusion: To our knowledge, this is the largest assessment of real-world data on alternative schedules of leuprolide in a Brazilian population. Our study suggests that PSA levels can be effectively be reduced in most patients treated with monthly, quarterly, or semiannual injections of long-acting leuprolide acetate.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Purpose: This study aims to evaluate the oncological and functional results of open partial nephrectomy (OPN) and laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) at the T1b clinical stage, which constitutes 25% of renal cell carcinomas (RCC) at diagnosis. Materials and Methods: The characteristics of 63 patients with stage T1b solitary tumor who underwent OPN (41) or LPN (22) were compared. The survival analysis was performed using the Kaplan-Meier method. Univariate and multivariate Cox regression analyses were performed to determine the factors affecting disease-free survival. Potential predictive factors, which might affect the postoperative glomerular filtration rate (GFR), were evaluated using multivariate linear regression analysis. Results: No differences were observed between OPN and LPN groups regarding patient and tumor characteristics. Although the warm ischemia time, intraoperative estimated blood loss, and operation duration were higher in the LPN group, no differences were noted between the two techniques regarding complication rates (p<0.001, p=0.023, p≤0.001, and p=0.190, respectively). The median hospitalization time was shorter in the LPN group than that in the OPN group (4 and 5 days, respectively), with less severe complications. No intergroup differences were observed regarding cancer-specific survival (CSS), disease-free survival (DFS), and overall survival (OS). The evaluation of the factors affecting DFS showed that age was an effective parameter (RR = 1.112, 95% CI: 1.010-8.254), but the surgical technique was not. Conclusion: No differences were observed between OPN and LPN techniques between oncological and functional outcomes in patients with clinical stage T1b RCC.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Purpose: To compare perioperative outcomes, complications and anastomotic stricture rate in a contemporary series of patients who underwent open radical cystectomy (RC) with modified Wallace anastomotic technique versus traditional ileal conduit. Materials and methods: Study enrolled 180 patients, of whom 140 were randomized and underwent RC; seventy were randomized to group I and the seventy to the group II. For the primary objective, we hypothesized that the rate of ureteroenteric strictures would be at least 20 % lower in the second group. Secondary end points included rate of anastomotic leak, surgical time, deterioration of the upper tract, intraoperative blood loss and patient-reported quality of life (HRQOL). The modified Wallace 1 technique involved eversion of the ureteral plate and bowel mucosa edges, which were anastomosed together in running fashion, while the outher anastomotic wall was augmented with sero-serosal interrupted sutures. Results: The mean (SD) follow-up time was 26.1 (5.7) months in group I and 25.2 (4.8) months in group II, during which, anastomotic stricture was observed in 8 patients (12%) from the first and 2 patients (3%) from the second group (p < 0.05). The anastomotic leakage rate was significantly higher in first group (17% vs. 8.5%, p< 0.05), while patient-reported HRQOL outcomes were similar between groups after the 12 month follow-up period. Conclusions: By using a modified Wallace technique, we were able to significantly lower anastomotic stricture and anastomotic leakage rates, which are major issues in minimizing both short- and long-term postoperative complications.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Purpose: Testicular germ cells tumor (TGCT) are associated with a high cure rate and are treated with platinum-based chemotherapy. However, a group of testicular cancer patients may have a very unfavorable evolution and insensitivity to the main therapeutic agent chemotherapy (CT) cisplatin. The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk of recurrence and overall survival related to the expression of nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB), transglutaminase 2 (TG2) and excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (ERCC1) in patients with TGCT treated with platinum combinations. Patients and Methods: A retrospective study was performed with TGCT patients treated with platinum-based chemotherapy. Immunohistochemical analysis was performed and the expression was correlated with clinical and laboratory data. Results: Fifty patients were included, the mean age was 28.4 years (18 to 45), and 76% were non-seminoma. All patients were treated with standard cisplatin, etoposide and bleomycin or cisplatin, and etoposide. Patient's analyzed immunodetection for NF-κB, TG2, and ERCC1 were positive in 76%, 54% and 42%, respectively. Multivariate analysis identified that positive expressions to ERCC1 and NF-κB are independent risk factors for higher recurrence TGCT after chemotherapy (RR 2.96 and 3.16, respectively). Patients with positive expression of ERCC1 presented a poor overall survival rate for 10-year follow (p=0.001). Conclusions: The expression of ERCC1 and NF-κB give a worse prognosis for relapse, and only ERCC1 had an influence on the overall survival of TGCT patients treated with platinum-based chemotherapy. These may represent markers that predict poor clinical outcome and response to cisplatin.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Robotic surgery has been slow to be fully accepted in the world of pediatric urology largely because of its initial application directed towards adult use and because of the inherent high cost associated with it. However, as previously shown, it has now become the gold standard for adolescent pyeloplasty in The United States. As the adoption of robotic surgery in children has become more widespread, its use has been applied to a broader spectrum of procedures with similar success rates to standard laparoscopy. These procedures include nephrectomy, heminephrectomy, ureteral reimplantation, and ureteroureterostomy. However, it has also shown feasibility and comparable success when compared to open surgery in procedures that were previously deemed too complex to be done by standard laparoscopy. For example, bladder neck reconstruction with Mitrofanoff and Malone procedure as well as bladder augmentation. This review objective is to provide an overview of robotic surgery in pediatric urology, with a focus on the more common cases such as pyeloplasty and reimplantation as well as more complex bladder reconstruction procedures.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Introduction: Use of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in carcinoma prostate (CaP) has deleterious effect on bone mineral density (BMD) leading to increase incidence of osteoporosis and skeletal-related events. We evaluated bone health status and impact of bone-directed therapy (BDT) and ADT on BMD in these patients from Jan 2015-Dec 2018. Materials and Method: Baseline bone health was assessed using Tc-99 MDP Bone scan/ DEXA scan for patients on ADT. Monthly zoledronic acid (ZA) was given to high-risk candidates (T-score ≤2.5 or previous hip/vertebral fracture) or Skel et al. metastatic patients who were receiving ADT. Baseline and follow-up (at 12-months) BMD using DEXA scan at various sites (spine, femur total, femur neck and radius) and subjective improvement in bony pain using Numeric Pain Rating Score after administration of ZA were compared. Results: A total of 96-patients of locally advanced and metastatic prostate cancer receiving ADT with or without BDT were included in the study cohort. Mean age of presentation was 68.4±15.61 years. Median serum PSA was 32.2±13.1ng/mL. There was significant improvement in mean BMD (T-score) in 64-patients post ZA therapy at 12-months (at femoral total, femoral neck and spine; 0.95, 0.79 and 0.68, respectively) (p <0.05) while there was significant deterioration in mean BMD at 12-months (at spine, femoral neck and femoral total; −0.77, −0.55 and −0.66, respectively) in 32 patients who did not receive ZA and were on ADT (p <0.05). Pain scores significantly decreased in patients after 12-months of ZA use (−2.92±2.16, p <0.01). Conclusion: Bone-directed therapy (Zoledronic acid) leads to both subjective and objective improvement in bone health of prostate cancer patients on ADT.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT Objective: Minimally invasive techniques are used increasingly by virtue of advancements in technology. Surgery for prostate cancer, which has high morbidity, is performed with an increasing momentum based on the successful oncological and functional outcomes as well as cosmetic aspects. Materials and methods: Sixty two patients underwent robot-assisted perineal radical prostatectomy (R-PRP) surgery at our clinic between November 2016 and August 2017. Six pelvimetric dimensions were defined and measured by performing multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) prior to operation in all patients. In light of these data, we aimed to investigate the effect of pelvimetric measurements on surgery duration and surgical margin positivity. Results: By using this technique in pelvic area, we observed that measurements only representing surgical site and excluding other pelvic organs had a significant effect on surgery duration, and pelvic dimensions had no significant effect on surgical margin positivity. Conclusion: In R-PRP technique, peroperative findings and oncological outcomes can vary depending on several variable factors, but although usually not taken into account, pelvimetric measurements can also affect these outcomes. However, there is a need for randomised controlled trials to be conducted with more patients.
