RESUMO

Introducción: El cáncer de páncreas mantiene un pronóstico ominoso a pesar de los avances en técnicas quirúrgicas y cuidados perioperatorios. Objetivo: Caracterizar los resultados del tratamiento aplicado a los pacientes con cáncer de páncreas. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio observacional, descriptivo y transversal de una serie de 70 pacientes con diagnóstico de cáncer de páncreas. Se estudiaron las variables: localización, tamaño del tumor, procedimiento quirúrgico, estadificación preoperatoria, diagnóstico histológico, estancia hospitalaria, complicaciones posoperatorias y estado al egreso, mediante el análisis de frecuencias absolutas, relativas y la media así como la prueba de ji al cuadrado y el IC 95 por ciento. Resultados: El procedimiento quirúrgico más frecuente fue derivativo en 47 enfermos (67,1 por ciento). La operación de Whipple se realizó en 10 pacientes (14,3 por ciento) con tumores localizados en la cabeza del páncreas y la pancreatectomía corporocaudal en 11 (15,7 por ciento) con tumores de cuerpo y cola del páncreas. La mayoría correspondió a los estadios III y IV. El 47,1 por ciento de los pacientes presentó un adenocarcinoma poco diferenciado. La estadía fluctuó entre 15 y 30 días en el 54,3 por ciento de la serie. Las complicaciones se presentaron en 19 enfermos (27,1 por ciento). Fallecieron 15 pacientes (21,4 por ciento) del total. Conclusiones: El tratamiento debe ser individualizado mediante equipos multidisciplinarios, con protocolos de actuación uniformes en cada institución que permita realizar estudios multicéntricos, con el objetivo de obtener estadísticas propias en aras de disminuir la morbilidad y la mortalidad, así como aumentar la calidad de vida de estos pacientes(AU)


Introduction: Facial rhytidectomy is the technique for correcting facial aging features, but they are becoming increasingly complex due to the incorporation of deeper planes in the process. The superficial musculoaponeurotic system techniques have the advantage of providing a greater degree of naturalness and permanence in time. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of the high-superficial musculoaponeurotic system technique for facial rejuvenation. Methods: A prospective and longitudinal case series study was carried out in the plastic surgery service of Hospital General Universitario "Vladimir Ilich Lenin" with patients who requested facial rejuvenation and were treated with the high-superficial musculoaponeurotic system technique, from January 1, 2018 to June 30, 2020. The variables age, sex, skin type, degree of aging, operative complications, patient satisfaction and aesthetic outcomes were studied. Results: The female sex predominated, together with the age group 50-59 years, the degrees of aging II and III, as well as white and light brown skin colors, while the most frequent operative complication was wound dehiscence of the suture line at the auricle root. The patients' satisfaction with the aesthetic outcomes of the surgical intervention was verified and the aesthetic outcomes was assessed as favorable in 100 percent of the cases for the used surgical technique. Conclusions: The high-superficial musculoaponeurotic system surgical technique for rhytidectomy offers harmonic, long-lasting outcomes with a low percentage of complications, making it a valuable alternative for patients(AU)

RESUMO

Aim: To investigate the attitude and perception of spectacle wearers towards contact lens wear. Method: A cross-sectional questionnaire was distributed from the waiting rooms of licensed Optometry Offices to spectacle-wearing participants over 18 years of age with no history of contact lens wear and those who previously wore contact lenses. The data collected on the barriers, attitude, awareness, and willingness of the spectacle wearers towards contact lens wear was statistically analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences Computer Software with the significance level set to a p-value of 5%. Results: Of the 119 participants, the majority were females (63.0%), had secondary education (47.1%), were of East Indian descent (59.7%) and were over 50 years (29.4%). Only 40 spectacle wearers indicated a history of previously wearing contact lenses. The main barriers for non-CL wearers were reportedly comfort of spectacles (40.5%), the perception that contact lenses are uncomfortable (38.0%) and difficult to use (36.7%) whereas for previous CL wearers it was mainly discomfort (57.5%). The main source of information were from eye-care practitioners (58.0%) and was only significantly associated with age (P=0.023). There was a greater willingness to retry contact lenses among previous CL wearers (62.5%) than non-CL wearers (41.8%). Conclusion: There was a positive attitude and perception among previous contact lens wearers than those who have never worn contact lenses. There is a need for increased health education by eye-care practitioners and other delivery methods to remove misconceptions and perpetuate the awareness of contact lenses and their benefits to allow for an increase in contact lens usage (AU)
