ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: The Prex2 protein is a member of the Rac family proteins that belongs to small G proteins with a critical role in cell migration, cell proliferation, and apoptosis through its effects on PI3K cell signaling pathway and phosphatase activity of PTEN protein. The effect of PREX2 gene expression has been shown in some cancer cells. A survey of PREX2 gene expression in gastric antral epithelial cells of gastric cancer patients with Helicobacter pylori various genotypes infection can conduct to better understanding H. pylori infection's carcinogenesis. METHODS: In a case-control study, PREX2 gene expression was evaluated in gastric antral biopsy samples on four groups of patients referred to Sanandaj hospitals, including gastritis with (n=23) and without (n=27) H. pylori infection and gastric cancer with (n=21) and without (n=32) H. pylori infection. Each gastric biopsy sample's total RNA was extracted and cDNA synthesized by using Kits (Takara Company). The PREX2 gene expression was measured using the relative quantitative real-time RT-PCR method and ΔΔCt formula. RESULTS: The PREX2 gene expression increased in gastric antral biopsy samples of gastritis and gastric cancer patients with H. pylori infection (case groups) than patients without H. pylori infection (control groups) 2.38 and 2.27 times, respectively. The patients with H. pylori vacA s1m1 and sabB genotypes infection showed a significant increase of PREX2 gene expression in gastric cancer antral epithelial cells. CONCLUSION: H. pylori vacA s1m1 and sabB genotypes have the positive correlations with PREX2 gene expression in gastric antral epithelial cells of gastritis and gastric cancer patients.


RESUMO CONTEXTO: A proteína Prex2 é membro das proteínas da família Rac que pertencem a pequenas proteínas G com um papel crítico na migração celular, na proliferação celular e na apoptose através de seus efeitos na via de sinalização celular PI3K e atividade fosfatase da proteína PTEN. O efeito da expressão genética PREX2 tem sido mostrada em algumas células cancerosas. Um levantamento da expressão genética PREX2 em células epiteliais antrais gástricas de pacientes infectados com vários genótipos de Helicobacter pylori pode conduzir a um melhor entendimento da carcinogênese da infecção por H. pylori. MÉTODOS: Em estudo de caso-controle, a expressão genética PREX2 foi avaliada em amostras de biópsia antral gástrica em quatro grupos de pacientes encaminhados aos hospitais de Sanandaj, incluindo gastrite com (n=23) e sem (n=27) infecção por H. pylori e de câncer gástrico com (n=21) e sem (n=32) infecção por H. pylori. O RNA total de cada amostra de biópsia gástrica foi extraído e cDNA sintetizado por meio de kits (Takara Company). A expressão genética PREX2 foi medida utilizando-se o método RT-PCR em tempo real quantitativo relativo e a fórmula ΔΔCt. RESULTADOS: A expressão genética PREX2 aumentou em amostras de biópsia antral gástrica de pacientes com gastrite e câncer gástrico com infecção por H. pylori (grupos de casos) em relação aos sem infecção por H. pylori (grupos de controle) 2,38 e 2,27 vezes, respectivamente. Os pacientes com infecção por genótipos H. pylori vacA s1m1 e sabB apresentaram um aumento significativo da expressão genética PREX2 em células epiteliais antrais de câncer gástrico. CONCLUSÃO: Os genótipos H. pylori vacA s1m1 e sabB têm correlações positivas com a expressão genética PREX2 em células epiteliais antrais gástricas de pacientes com câncer gástrico e gastrites.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Vitamin D has relationships with pathogenesis and inflammation pathways in many diseases. Its deficiency may make clinicians think not only of supplementation but also of presence of other diseases. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between vitamin D levels and deep vein thrombosis (DVT), given that reduced levels are related to increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. DESIGN AND SETTING: Case-control study conducted in the cardiovascular surgery and family medicine departments of a hospital in Turkey. METHODS: A total of 280 participants were included: 140 each in the DVT and control groups. Basic clinical characteristics, comorbidities and serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels were recorded and then compared between the groups. Serum 25(OH)D levels were also evaluated separately in three subgroups (sufficient, insufficient and deficient). RESULTS: Serum 25(OH)D levels were significantly lower in the DVT group than in the controls (P < 0.001). Females in the DVT group had lower 25(OH)D levels than those in the control group (P = 0.002). Nonetheless, the median 25(OH)D level (16.41 ng/ml) of the control group was still below the reference value. Logistic regression analysis showed that 25(OH)D was a significant predictor of DVT. Weight, height and body mass index, which all presented interaction, were significant in the logistic regression analysis but not in individual analyses. CONCLUSION: The serum vitamin D levels of DVT patients were lower than those of controls. If the results obtained from our study are supported by further large-scale randomized controlled trials, vitamin D replacement may be brought into the agenda for protection against DVT.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Evaluar la seguridad ocular y sistémica de una combinación de lidocaína 2 por ciento y fenilefrina 1 por ciento administrada por vía intracameral para provocar midriasis intraoperatoria en la cirugía de catarata. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio prospectivo de serie de casos en 70 ojos de igual número de pacientes sometidos a facoemulsificación con implante de lente intraocular. El grupo midriasis intraoperatoria en la cirugía lo conformaron 35 pacientes dilatados con una inyección intracameral de lidocaína y fenilefrina antes de la cirugía, mientras otros 35 ojos se dilataron de manera tradicional, con un colirio midriático previo. Para la seguridad ocular se evaluaron múltiples parámetros del examen oftalmológico pre- y posoperatorio. Resultados: La presión intraocular, el espesor corneal central, la densidad celular del endotelio corneal y el edema corneal posoperatorio como hallazgo del segmento anterior se comportaron de manera similar en ambos grupos de estudio. Se reportó una complicación transoperatoria en el grupo de manera tradicional y un caso con edema quístico macular posoperatorio en el grupo midriasis intraoperatoria en la cirugía que no representaron diferencias significativas. Conclusión: La inyección de lidocaína más fenilefrina intracameral es una opción segura tanto ocular como sistémica para provocar midriasis durante la facoemulsificación(AU)


Objective: Evaluate the ocular and systemic safety of a combination of 2 percent lidocaine and 1 percent phenylephrine administered intracamerally to achieve intraoperative mydriasis in cataract surgery. Methods: A prospective study was conducted of a case series of 70 patients (70 eyes) who underwent phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation. The intraoperative mydriasis group was composed of 35 patients dilated with an intracameral injection of lidocaine and phenylephrine before surgery, whereas another 35 eyes were dilated by the conventional method, with mydriatic eye drops. Ocular safety evaluation was based on the analysis of a wide variety of pre- and postoperative ophthalmological examination parameters. Results: Intraocular pressure, central corneal thickness, corneal endothelial cell density and postoperative corneal edema as an anterior segment finding, behaved in a similar manner in both study groups. An intraoperative complication was reported in the conventional method group and a case with postoperative cystoid macular edema in the intraoperative mydriasis group group, neither of them exhibiting significant differences. Conclusion: Intracameral lidocaine plus phenylephrine injection is a safe ocular and systemic option to achieve mydriasis during phacoemulsification(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: El Síndrome de Desgaste Laboral o Burnout, es entendido como una baja resiliencia para afrontar el estrés laboral. Objetivo: Identificar factores asociados al Burnout y la prevalencia global y de cada uno de sus constructos, entre auxiliares de enfermería en un hospital de referencia de mediana y alta complejidad, en Colombia. Materiales y métodos: Estudio de casos y controles, con 183 auxiliares registradas en un hospital. Se utilizó el instrumento de Maslach y se identificaron los factores asociados utilizando la regresión Log-Binomial determinando los Odds Ratio (OR). Resultados: Los factores encontrados asociados con Burnout que aumentan la probabilidad de ocurrencia son: trabajar más de 48 horas por semana, OR=1,02 (1,01-1.05) al 90% de confianza; sentirse mal con el trabajo que se realiza OR=3,87 (1,18-10,71); el dormir siete horas o más al día OR=0,70 (0,53-0,91), disminuye la probabilidad. La prevalencia total de Burnout fue 44,7%, siendo 11,8% para agotamiento personal, 14,9% despersonalización y 47,81% pobre realización personal. Conclusiones: Los factores asociados: no dormir suficiente y sentirse mal con la tarea que se realiza, aumentan la probabilidad de desarrollar Burnout, mientras que dormir 7 o más horas diarias la disminuye. Estos hallazgos facilitarán la aplicación de medidas de control institucional.


Introduction: The Burnout syndrome is understood as a low resilience to face work stress. Objective: To identify factors and constructs associated with Burnout and its overall prevalence in nursing assistants in a reference hospital of medium and high complexity level from Colombia. Materials and methods: A case-control study was conducted on 183 nursing assistants from a hospital. The Maslach instrument and Log-Binomial regression were used to identify associated factors, determining their Odds Ratio (OR). Results: The factors found associated with Burnout that increase its probability of occurrence are: working more than 48 hours a week (OR=1.02 (1.01-1.05) 90% CI) and feeling negatively about the work being done (OR=3.87 (1.18-10.71)). However, sleeping 7 or more hours a day reduces such probability (OR=0.70 (0.53-0.91)). The total Burnout prevalence was 44.7%, the main causes being personal fatigue (11.8%), depersonalization (14.9%), and poor personal fulfillment (47.81%). Conclusions: Associated factors, such as not getting enough sleep and feeling negatively about the work being done, increase the probability to develop Burnout, while this probability decreases by sleeping 7 or more hours a day. These findings will facilitate the implementation of institutional control measures.

ABSTRACT

Introducción. Las infecciones con bacteriemias en pacientes quemados son causa frecuente de complicaciones y aumento de días de internación. El conocimiento de los microorganismos causales y la identificación de factores de riesgo asociados permiten disminuir las complicaciones infecciosas, la morbimortalidad y los costos en cuidados de la salud. Este trabajo evalúa el grado de asociación entre los factores de riesgo y los episodios de bacteriemias en pacientes quemados, e identifica los microorganismos aislados más frecuentemente en hemocultivos. Población y métodos. Estudio de casos y controles realizado en la Unidad de Cuidados Críticos de Quemados del Hospital de Pediatría S.A.M.I.C. "Prof. Dr. Juan P. Garrahan" entre el 1 de junio de 2014 y el 30 de septiembre de 2019 en pacientes que presentaron episodios de bacteriemia con hemocultivo positivo (casos) y los que presentaron hemocultivos negativos (controles). Resultados. Durante el período estudiado se identificaron 29 casos de bacteriemias. La mediana de días de internación al momento del episodio de bacteriemia fue de 23 días. El microorganismo más frecuentemente identificado fue Pseudomonas (7 casos). El único factor de riesgo con el que se pudo establecer asociación significativa fue la presencia de acceso venoso central con 7 días o más (OR 3,18; IC 95 %: 1,20-8,38). La mortalidad global fue del 9,1 %, en los casos fue del 13,8 %, y en los controles, del 3,4 %. Conclusiones. Los accesos venosos centrales con duración mayor a 7 días son un factor de riesgo independiente de bacteriemias en niños quemados críticos. No se pudo establecer una asociación estadísticamente significativa con otros factores de riesgos analizados. Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter y Staphylococcus coagulasa negativo fueron los microorganismos más frecuentemente identificados en las bacteriemias


Introduction. Infections due to bacteremia in burn patients are a common cause of complications and an extended length of stay. Knowing causative microorganisms and identifying associated risk factors allow to reduce infectious complications, morbidity, mortality, and health care expenditure. This study assesses the extent of the association between risk factors and bacteremia in burn patients and identifies the most common microorganisms found in blood cultures. Population and methods. Case-control study conducted at the Burn Intensive Care Unit of Hospital de Pediatría S.A.M.I.C. "Prof. Dr. Juan P. Garrahan" between June 1st, 2014 and September 30th, 2019 in patients with bacteremia events and a positive blood culture (cases) and patients with a negative blood culture (controls). Results. During the study period, 29 cases of bacteremia were identified. The median length of stay at the time of bacteremia was 23 days. The most commonly identified microorganism was Pseudomonas (7 cases). The only risk factor that showed a significant association was the presence of a central venous line for 7 days or more (OR: 3.18; 95 % confidence interval: 1.20- 8.38). The overall mortality rate was 9.1%; 13.8% for cases and 3.4% for controls. Conclusions. Central venous lines for more than 7 days are an independent risk factor for bacteremia in critically ill burn children. No statistically significant association was established with other studied risk factors. Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter, and coagulase-negative Staphylococcus were the most common microorganisms found in bacteremia

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective The present study aims to identify the energy required for synthetic proximal femoral fracture after removal of three implant types: cannulated screws, dynamic hip screws (DHS), and proximal femoral nail (PFN). Methods Twenty-five synthetic proximal femur bones were used: 10 were kept intact as the control group (CG), 5 were submitted to the placement and removal of 3 cannulated screws in an inverted triangle configuration (CSG), 5 were submitted to the placement and removal of a dynamic compression screw (DHSG), and 5 were submitted to the placement and removal of a proximal femur nail (PFNG). All samples were biomechanically analyzed simulating a fall on the greater trochanter using a servo-hydraulic machine to determine the energy (in Joules [J]) required for fracture. Results All samples presented basicervical fractures. The energy required for fracture was 7.1 J, 6.6 J, 6 J, and 6.7 J for the CG, CSG, DHSG and PFNG, respectively. There was no statistically significant difference (considering a 95% confidence interval) in energy among the study groups (p = 0.34). Conclusion There was no statistically significant difference in the energy required to cause a synthetic proximal femoral fracture after removing all three implant types and simulating a fall over the greater trochanter.


Resumo Objetivo Identificar a energia necessária para ocorrência de fratura do fêmur proximal em osso sintético após retirada de três modelos de implantes: parafusos canulados, parafuso dinâmico do quadril (dynamic hip screw-DHS) e haste femoral proximal (proximal femoral nail-PFN). Métodos Foram utilizados 25 modelos de ossos sintéticos da extremidade proximal do fêmur: 10 unidades de grupo controle (GC), 5 unidades após colocação e retirada de 3 parafusos canulados colocados em configuração de triângulo invertido (GPC), 5 unidades após colocação e retirada do parafuso de compressão dinâmico (GDHS), e 5 unidades após colocação e retirada da haste de fêmur proximal (GPFN). Uma análise biomecânica foi realizada em todas as amostras simulando uma queda sobre o grande trocânter utilizando uma máquina servo-hidráulica com o objetivo de verificar a energia (em Joules [J]) necessária até a ocorrência de fratura nos diferentes grupos. Resultados Todos os grupos apresentaram fratura basocervical. Os grupos GC, GPC, GDHS e GPFN apresentaram, respectivamente, valores de 7.1J, 6.6J, 6J e 6.7J de energia até ocorrência da fratura. Não houve diferença estatisticamente significativa (intervalo de confiança de 95%) na energia entre os grupos de estudo (p = 0,34). Conclusão Não houve diferença estatisticamente significativa nos valores de energia necessária para ocorrência de fratura da extremidade proximal do fêmur após a retirada de três tipos de implantes utilizando modelos sintéticos simulando queda sobre o grande trocânter.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Introducción: Las enfermedades cardiovasculares representan la principal causa de muerte de la población mundial. Objetivo: Identificar los factores predictores de mortalidad hospitalaria en pacientes con infarto agudo del miocardio en el Hospital General Docente "Dr. Agostinho Neto", durante el año 2017. Método: Se realizó un estudio retrospectivo analítico de tipo caso y control, en una población conformada por 90 pacientes con infarto. En el grupo caso se encontraron todos los pacientes fallecidos durante el ingreso (n=30) que cumplieron los criterios de inclusión y exclusión, mientras que el grupo control estuvo constituido por 60 pacientes que egresaron vivos, seleccionados al azar mediante un muestreo aleatorio simple. Resultados: La media de la edad fue mayor en el grupo de los casos 74,06 respecto a los controles, (p=0,021). El 86,6 % de los casos no recibió trombolisis y el 6,6 % tuvo algún criterio de reperfusión pos-estreptoquinasa (p=0,00). El 36,6 % de los casos presentó choque cardiogénico (p=0,003), ruptura cardíaca (30 %) (p=0,03), y taponamiento (23,3 %) (p=0,01). Conclusiones: Los factores predictores de mortalidad hospitalaria en pacientes con infarto agudo del miocardio son: la edad avanzada, el tiempo prolongado entre el inicio de los síntomas y la asistencia médica, la existencia de las complicaciones, tales como el choque cardiogénico, el taponamiento cardíaco y la ruptura cardíaca, así como la no administración de tratamiento trombolítico y la ausencia de reperfusión.


ABSTRACT Introduction: Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death worldwide. Objective: To identify the predictor factors of hospital mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction at the Hospital General Docente "Dr. Agostinho Neto" in 2017. Method: A retrospective analytical case-control study was performed in a population of 90 patients with myocardial infarction. The case-cohort study included all patients who died during admission (n=30) and met the inclusion and exclusion criteria, while the case-control study included 60 patients who were discharged alive, randomly selected by simple random sampling. Results: The mean age was higher in the case-cohort studied (74.06 years) than the case-control (p=0.021). The 86,6% of cases did not receive thrombolysis and 6.6% had some reperfusion criteria after the streptokinase (p=0.00). Cardiogenic shock (p=0.003), cardiac rupture (30%) (p=0.03), and cardiac tamponade (23.3%) (p=0.01) were present in 36.6% of cases. Conclusions: The predictor factors of hospital mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction are as follows: age, the prolonged time between the onset of symptoms and medical attention, presence of complications such as cardiogenic shock, cardiac tamponade and cardiac rupture, as well as the non-administration of thrombolytic treatment and the absence of reperfusion.

Método: Foi realizado um estudo retrospectivo analítico caso-controle em uma população de 90 pacientes com infarto. No grupo caso, foram encontrados todos os pacientes que morreram na admissão (n=30) que atenderam aos critérios de inclusão e exclusão, enquanto o grupo controle foi composto por 60 pacientes que receberam alta com vida, selecionados aleatoriamente por amostragem aleatória simples. Resultados: A média de idade foi maior no grupo de casos 74,06 em relação aos controles (p=0,021). 86,6% dos casos não receberam trombólise e 6,6% tinham algum critério para reperfusão pós-estreptoquinase (p=0,00). 36,6% dos casos apresentaram choque cardiogênico (p=0,003), ruptura cardíaca (30%) (p=0,03) e tamponamento (23,3%) (p=0,01). Conclusões: Os fatores preditivos de mortalidade hospitalar em pacientes com infarto agudo do miocárdio são: idade avançada, longo tempo entre o início dos sintomas e o atendimento médico, a existência de complicações, como choque cardiogênico, tamponamento cardíaco e ruptura cardíaca, bem como a não administração de tratamento trombolítico e a ausência de reperfusão.

Introduction: The prognosis of dying from digestive bleeding allows individualizing treatment and reducing mortality. Objectives: To identify the prognostic factors of mortality due to nonvariceal gastrointestinal bleeding in seriously-ill patients. Methods: Cases and controls were studied in patients admitted to the intensive care unit of Joaquín Albarrán Domínguez Clinical-Surgical Teaching Hospital, between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2019. The universe consisted of 1060 patients, 154 of which were selected to make up the sample (137 controls and 17 cases). Chi-square and odds ratio (CI: 95 percent) were applied. Results: Of the total of patients studied, 11.3 percent died, the average age was 69±11.58 (control group) and 75±11.42 (case group). Alterations in acid-base balance accounted for 7.4 as risk of dying (CI: 95 percent; 2.5-21.9), hypoxia accounted for 1.1 (CI: 95 percent; 0.41-3.2), variations in potassium accounted for 4.9 (CI: 95 percent; 1.54-16.1), hyperlacthemia accounted for 16.9 (CI: 95 percent; 5.3-52.0), and sodium deviations accounted for 6.5 (CI: 95 percent; 0.8-51, 4), mechanical ventilation accounted for 2.17 (CI: 95 percent; 0.6-7.0), vasoactive amines support accounted for 16.9 (CI: 95 percent; 5.30-52.0), red blood cell transfusion accounted for 11.7 (CI: 95 percent; 3.1-4.3), dialysis treatment accounted for 47.5 (CI: 95 percent; 8.6-258.0), and complications accounted for 3.4 (CI: 95 percent; 1.15-10.4). Endoscopic treatment was 93.5 percent in the control group and 41.3 percent in the case group, with odds ratio at 0.04 (CI: 95 percent; 0.01-0.15). Conclusions: The prognostic factors identified were alterations in pH, sodium, potassium, elevated lactate, mechanical ventilation, transfusions of more than 250 mL of red blood cells, vasoactive amine support, dialysis treatment, and complications related to bleeding.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT The standard treatment for locally advanced cervical cancer (CC) is chemoradiotherapy. Once the bladder receives part of the radiation, a typical inflammatory condition that configures radiation-induced cystitis may develop. Chronic radiation-induced cystitis is commonly characterized by the bladder new submucosal vascularization, which is typically fragile and favors hematuria. The current study aims to investigate if Hypoxia-Induced Factor (HIF-1α) and its transcriptional target Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor A (VEGF-A) could be a primary pathway leading to increased submucosal vascularization. HIF-1α and VEGF-A mRNA levels in bladder core biopsies from CC patients treated with radiotherapy versus untreated (non-irradiated) patients were analyzed using a droplet digital polymerase chain reaction technology. Gene expression results showed that HIF-1α and VEGF-A had no significant differences between bladder samples from patients previously irradiated and untreated patient samples. However, a direct relationship between the degree of late morbidity and the expression of HIF-1α and VEGF-A has been demonstrated. Despite the lack of statistical significance precludes a definitive conclusion, the data presented herein suggests that further studies investigating the role of HIF-1α in bladder neovascularization in radiation-induced cystitis are highly recommended.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT To explore the clinical effect of music therapy in the treatment of middle-aged and elderly patients with depression. From June 2019 to June 2020, 100 patients with depression in a community were selected as the object of this study, and were divided into a control group and an observation group according to the order of visits, with 50 patients in each group. There was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of gender, age, education level and drug treatment (medication dose, type) (P>0.05). The patients in the control group were treated with conventional antidepressant drugs. The patients in the observation group added music therapy to the conventional therapy. The music therapist needs to fully understand the basic situation of the patient and formulate a suitable music treatment plan according to the actual state of the patient. Compare the HANA and PSP scores between the two groups of depressive patients after treatment to judge the treatment effect on the patients. The Hana and PSP scores in the observation group after treatment were significantly higher than those in the control group (P<0.05). To treat depression, in addition to selecting appropriate drugs, alleviating the emotional state of patients is more important. Music therapy as an auxiliary treatment of traditional therapy, in the treatment of depression in the elderly, has been effectively verified, we should actively promote its application.

De junho de 2019 a junho de 2020, 100 pacientes com depressão foram selecionados como objeto deste estudo, e foram divididos em um grupo controle e um grupo de observação de acordo com a ordem de consultas, sendo 50 pacientes incluídos em cada grupo. Não houve diferença significativa entre os dois grupos em termos de gênero, idade, escolaridade e tratamento medicamentoso (dose, tipo de medicação) (P>0.05). Os pacientes do grupo controle foram tratados com medicamentos antidepressivos convencionais. Os pacientes do grupo de observação adicionaram a terapia musical à terapia convencional. O terapeuta musical precisa entender completamente a situação básica do paciente e formular um plano de tratamento musical adequado de acordo com o estado real do paciente. Comparar os escores HANA e PSP entre os dois grupos de pacientes com depressão após tratamento para avaliar o efeito terapêutico dos pacientes. Os escores Hana e PSP no grupo de observação após o tratamento foram significativamente superiores às do grupo controle (P< 0.05). Para o tratamento da depressão, além da seleção de medicamentos apropriados, o estado emocional dos pacientes é mais importante. A terapia musical Como tratamento auxiliar da Terapia tradicional no tratamento da depressão nos idosos foi efetivamente verificada, portanto devemos promover ativamente sua aplicação.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objectives: to investigate the information received by pregnant women considering assistance care and educational factors on syphilis and its association with the diagnostic of congenital syphilis in a referral maternity. Methods: a case-control study conducted in a referral maternity in Minas Gerais, Brazil, from 2017 to 2018. A case group included newborns' mothers with presumptive congenital syphilis and A control group was considered healthy newborns ' mothers. Clinical, obstetrics variables and information about maternal educational approach on syphilis during prenatal care were obtained through interviews and medical records. Descriptive and comparative analyses were performed. Chi-square or Fisher's exact test and odds ratio were calculated followed by multivariate logistic regression. Results: sixty mothers were included in the case group and 120 mothers in the control group. Mothers in the case group presented lower schooling level and they were 24 times more likely to have information about the risks of congenital syphilis and five times more likely to had received previous treatment for syphilis and mothers in the control group were 10 times more likely to receive information about Sexually Transmitted Infections during prenatal care. Conclusion: adequate health assistance identifying previous history of syphilis and health education improving its information about Sexually Transmitted Infections can help prevent congenital syphilis, which indicates the necessity of a better approach by the professionals during prenatal care.


Resumo Objetivos: investigar as informações recebidas pela gestante considerando fatores assis-tenciais e educacionais sobre sífilis e a suas associações com o diagnóstico de sífilis congênita em uma maternidade de referência. Métodos: estudo caso-controle realizado em maternidade de referência em Minas Gerais, Brasil, de 2017 a 2018. Grupo caso incluiu mães de recém-nascidos com sífilis congênita presuntiva e o grupo Controle foi considerado mães de recém-nascidos saudáveis. Variáveis clínicas, obstétricas e informações sobre a abordagem educacional materna sobre a sífilis durante a assistência no pré-natal foram obtidas por meio de entrevista e prontuário. Análises descritivas e comparativas foram realizadas. Calculou-se o teste do qui-quadrado ou exato de Fisher e a razão de chances, seguido de regressão logística multivariada. Resultados: sessenta mães foram incluídas no grupo caso e 120 mães foram incluídas no grupo controle. As mães do grupo caso apresentavam menor escolaridade e tiveram 24 vezes mais chances de ter informações sobre os riscos da sífilis congênita e cinco vezes mais chances de ter recebido tratamento anterior para sífilis e as mães do grupo controle tiveram 10 vezes mais chances de receber informações sobre as Infecções Sexualmente Transmissíveis durante a assistência no pré-natal. Conclusão: a assistência a saúde adequada identificando história previa de sífilis da gestante e educação em saúde com melhores informações sobre Infecções Sexualmente Transmissíveis podem ajudar na prevenção de sífilis congênita, o que indica necessidade de melhor abordagem pelos profissionais durante a assistência pré-natal.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Introducción: La cardiopatía isquémica, a pesar de que la mortalidad ha disminuido en casi todas las regiones del mundo, continúa siendo un problema de salud. Objetivo: Identificar los factores pronósticos de mortalidad intrahospitalaria en pacientes con infarto agudo del miocardio con elevación del segmento ST. Método: Se realizó un estudio analítico, de casos y controles, de 347 pacientes diagnosticados con infarto agudo del miocardio con elevación del segmento ST tipo I, desde enero de 2018 a diciembre de 2019 en el Hospital Clínico Quirúrgico Docente "Celia Sánchez Manduley", de Manzanillo, Granma. El grupo de estudio lo integraron 46 fallecidos y por cada paciente de este grupo se escogieron, aleatoriamente, 2 egresados vivos, constituyendo los controles. Se utilizó la prueba de la Chi cuadrado para variables cualitativas y la de la t de Student para las cuantitativas. Para determinar los factores pronósticos de mortalidad se utilizó un modelo de regresión logística. Resultados: Se determinó una media de edad de 73,7 años (DE ±8,0). Prevalecieron los antecedentes de tabaquismo, diabetes mellitus e hipertensión arterial. Resultaron factores de riesgos de mortalidad el antecedente de insuficiencia cardiaca (OR: 5,4 IC 95 % 1,226-23,97), presentarse con insuficiencia cardiaca mayor que I según Killip-Kimball (OR: 12,6 IC 95 % 3,245-49,30), valores de glucemia mayores de 10 mmol/L (OR: 4,7 IC 95 % 1,149-19,79) y de creatinfosfoquinasa MB mayores de 160 UI (OR: 17,7 IC 95 % 3,992-79,07). Conclusiones: Existen variables epidemiológicas, clínicas y analíticas capaces de predecir mortalidad en pacientes con infarto agudo del miocardio.


ABSTRACT Introduction: Despite the fact that the mortality has decreased in almost all regions of the world, ischemic heart disease continues to be a health problem. Objective: To identify prognostic factors for in-hospital mortality in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Method: An analytical study of cases and controls was carried out, out of 347 patients diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation type I, from January 2018 to December 2019 at the Hospital Clínico Quirúrgico Docente "Celia Sánchez Manduley" in Manzanillo, Granma. The study group was made up of 46 deceased, and for each deceased patient in this group, 2 living discharged patients were randomly chosen, constituting the control group. The Chi-square test was used for qualitative variables and the Student's T-test for quantitative variables. To determine the prognostic factors of mortality, a logistic regression model was used. Results: A mean age of 73.7 years (SD ± 8.0) was determined. History of smoking, diabetes mellitus and arterial hypertension prevailed. The mortality risk factors were: history of heart failure (OR: 5.4 95% CI 1,226-23.97); heart failure higher than I according to Killip-Kimball (OR: 12.6 95% CI 3,245-49 , 30); blood glucose values higher than 10 mmol / L (OR: 4.7 95% CI 1.149-19.79) and creatine phosphokinase MB higher than 160 IU (OR: 17.7 95% CI 3.992-79.07). Conclusions: There are epidemiological, clinical and analytical variables capable of predicting mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Introduction: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained arrhythmia. Sorting nexin 10 (SNX10) has been reported to be an important regulator in embryonic development and human diseases, however, little is known about its role in cardiac disease. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical significance of SNX10 expression in AF. Methods: Nineteen valvular heart disease patients with AF and nine valvular heart disease patients with sinus rhythm (SR) were enrolled. Atrial tissue samples from patients undergoing open heart surgery were examined. Atrial tissues of normal hearts were obtained from two cases' autopsies. The SNX10 expression and its associations with the degree of fibrosis were analyzed by immunohistochemistry and Masson's trichrome staining. Results: SNX10 expression was detected in the cytoplasm of cardiac cells in human myocardial tissue. The SNX10 expression level was higher in the SR group than in the AF group (P=0.023). SNX10 expression was negatively associated with the degree of fibrosis (P=0.017, Spearman rho=-0.447), the New York Heart Association degree (P=0.003, Spearman rho=-0.545), left atrial diameter (P=0.038, Spearman rho=-0.393), right atrial diameter (P=0.043, Spearman rho=-0.386), and the brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) level 24 hours after surgery (P=0.030, Spearman rho=-0.426), but not the BNP level before surgery and 72 hours after surgery. No statistical significance was observed between SNX10 and the level of troponin T and C-reactive protein. Conclusion: Decreased SNX10 might serve as a potential risk factor in AF of the valvular heart disease.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Matrix degradation is an important event in the progression, invasion and metastasis of malignant head and neck lesions. Imbalances, mutations and polymorphisms of MMPs and their inhibitors are observed in several cancer subtypes. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of the MMP-7 gene promoter (181 A/G) and MMP-9 (-1562 C/T) polymorphisms in oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma (OTSCC). MMP-7 (rs11568818) and MMP-9 (rs3918242) single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were genotyped by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) analysis in 71 cases of OTSCC. Normal tissue specimens were obtained from 60 healthy volunteers to serve as the control. The MMP-7 G allele and MMP-9 T allele were more frequent in the OTSCC group than the control group, but only when these two SNPs were taken together was a significant association found with the nodal metastasis of OTSCC (p < 0.001). Based on our results, SNPs in the promoter region of MMP-7 and MMP-9 appear to be associated with greater risk of developing OTSCC, and with a higher propensity to form metastatic tumors. In this respect, molecular studies investigating polymorphisms may be useful in predicting tumor behavior.

ABSTRACT

Abstract The objective of this study was to evaluate if individuals with dentofacial deformities (DFD) who require orthognathic surgery are affected more by depression and pain. A case-control study was performed with 195 individuals. In the DFD group, 145 individuals with Class II and III malocclusion requiring orthognathic surgery were selected. The control group was composed of 50 individuals with no DFD. All patients were diagnosed according to the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD). Data were analyzed with a significance level of 0.05. The DFD group more often presented severe depression (p = 0.020) and chronic pain (p = 0.017). They also presented higher prevalence of Nonspecific Physical Symptoms Including Pain (P = 0.002) and Nonspecific Physical Symptoms Excluding Pain (p = 0.002). Concerning TMD symptoms, the DFD group had more myofascial (p = 0.002) and articular pain (p = 0.041). Therefore, the results of this study suggest that depression and pain are more common in individuals with DFD requiring orthognathic surgery compared with individuals without DFD.

ABSTRACT

Abstract The present cross-sectional case-control study aimed to determine if there is an association between specific oral behaviors, sleep bruxism (SB), awake bruxism (AB), and painful temporomandibular joint (TMJ) clicking. Ninety individuals were dived into three groups; Group 1 (n = 30): painful TMJ clicking; Group 2 (n = 30): painless TMJ clicking; and Group 3 (n = 30): control group. The following clinical data were studied: oral behaviors (unilateral chewing, gum chewing, nail biting, foreign objects biting, leaning with jaw against the hand, and sleeping in a position that pressures the jaw), SB, AB (including the frequency in 10 days, evaluated by ecological momentary assessment), and malocclusions investigated based on clinical inspections (anterior open bite, posterior cross-bite, abnormal overbite/overjet, occlusal guidance, mediotrusive and/or laterotrusive interferences, retruded contact position to maximum intercuspation slide, missing posterior teeth). All statistical tests (Kolmogorov-Smirnov, chi-square, and one-way ANOVA) were performed with a 5% significance level. Group 1 had the highest frequency of and a significant association with leaning with jaw in the hand, sleeping position that pressures the jaw, gum chewing, nail biting, and AB (p<0.05). Gum chewing, nail biting, and AB were associated with Group 2 only when compared to Group 3 (p<0.05). No significant difference among groups was found for other behaviors (unilateral chewing and foreign objects biting), SB, and all malocclusions (p>0.05). It can be concluded that patients with painful TMJ clicking had a higher frequency of and a significant association with some specific harmful behaviors and AB.
