RESUMO

Pediatric large B-cell lymphomas (LBCLs) share morphological and phenotypic features with adult types but have better prognosis. The higher frequency of some subtypes such as LBCL with IRF4 rearrangement (LBCL-IRF4) in children suggests that some age-related biological differences may exist. To characterize the genetic and molecular heterogeneity of these tumors, we studied 31 diffuse LBCLs (DLBCLs), not otherwise specified (NOS); 20 LBCL-IRF4 cases; and 12 cases of high-grade B-cell lymphoma (HGBCL), NOS in patients ≤25 years using an integrated approach, including targeted gene sequencing, copy-number arrays, and gene expression profiling. Each subgroup displayed different molecular profiles. LBCL-IRF4 had frequent mutations in IRF4 and NF-κB pathway genes (CARD11, CD79B, and MYD88), losses of 17p13 and gains of chromosome 7, 11q12.3-q25, whereas DLBCL, NOS was predominantly of germinal center B-cell (GCB) subtype and carried gene mutations similar to the adult counterpart (eg, SOCS1 and KMT2D), gains of 2p16/REL, and losses of 19p13/CD70. A subset of HGBCL, NOS displayed recurrent alterations of Burkitt lymphoma-related genes such as MYC, ID3, and DDX3X and homozygous deletions of 9p21/CDKN2A, whereas other cases were genetically closer to GCB DLBCL. Factors related to unfavorable outcome were age >18 years; activated B-cell (ABC) DLBCL profile, HGBCL, NOS, high genetic complexity, 1q21-q44 gains, 2p16/REL gains/amplifications, 19p13/CD70 homozygous deletions, and TP53 and MYC mutations. In conclusion, these findings further unravel the molecular heterogeneity of pediatric and young adult LBCL, improve the classification of this group of tumors, and provide new parameters for risk stratification.

RESUMO

Objetivo: establecer la prevalencia de traumatismo craneoencefálico (TCE) en pacientes pediátricos del Hospital Zonal Bariloche (Argentina) y describir las características de estos y la causa de la lesión. Metodología: se llevó a cabo un estudio transversal. Se consideraron todos los pacientes menores de 15 años con TCE atendidos en Urgencias durante 2012 y los ingresados durante 2012 y 2013. Las características evaluadas fueron: género, edad y sitio, causa y momento de ocurrencia del TCE. Resultados: total de consultas por TCE en Urgencias 442,4% de las consultas pediátricas. La media de la edad fue 4,6 años. El 55% de los lesionados fue varón. La diferencia en la prevalencia entre géneros aumentó con la edad. La incidencia de consultas fue mayor durante periodos de esparcimiento de los niños: tarde y primeras horas de la noche, fines de semana, primavera y verano. Hubo 26 pacientes ingresados. Principalmente, las causas más habituales de TCE fueron caídas y accidentes de tráfico. El lugar donde se produjo un mayor número de TCE fue el hogar (41% de los casos). Conclusiones: la prevalencia de TCE en la infancia es media-alta. Las enfermeras deberían llevar a cabo intervenciones educativas para padres/cuidadores y niños en etapas de desarrollo infantil (sobre todo en grupos de edad más vulnerables, como los menores de 5 años), centradas en mejorar las actitudes del cuidado y la prevención de accidentes, para contribuir a reducir el número y la severidad de los TCE (AU)


Objective: to determine the prevalence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in paediatric patients from the Hospital Zonal Bariloche (Argentina) and to describe the characteristics of patients and the cause of the injury. Methodology: all patients <15-year-old with TBI seen at the Hospital ER during 2012 were included, as well as those admitted to the hospital during 2012 and 2013. The characteristics assessed were gender and age of patients, and place, cause and time of the TBI. Results: there were 442 consultations for TBI at ER, representing 4% of the paediatric visits. The mean age was 4.6 years; 55% of injured patients were male. The difference in prevalence between genders increased with age. The incidence of visits was higher during times of recreational activities: afternoon and evenings, weekends, spring and summer. Twenty-six (26) patients were admitted to hospital. Primarily, the most frequent causes of TBI were falls and car accidents. The highest number of TBIs occurred at home (41% of cases). Conclusions: there is a medium-high prevalence of TBIs during childhood. Nurses should conduct educational interventions for parents/caregivers and children during stages of childhood development (mainly in the most vulnerable age groups, such as <5-year-old children), focused on an improvement of care attitudes and prevention of accidents, in order to contribute to a reduction in the number and severity of TBIs (AU)

RESUMO

Narrative skills play a crucial role in organizing experience, facilitating social interaction and building academic discourse and literacy. They are at the interface of cognitive, social, and linguistic abilities related to school engagement. Despite their relative strengths in social and grammatical skills, students with Williams syndrome (WS) do not show parallel cognitive and pragmatic performance in narrative generation tasks. The aim of the present study was to assess retelling of a TV cartoon tale and the effect of an individualized explicit instruction of the narrative structure. Participants included eight students with WS who attended different special education levels. Narratives were elicited in two sessions (pre and post intervention), and were transcribed, coded and analyzed using the tools of the CHILDES Project. Narratives were coded for productivity and complexity at the microstructure and macrostructure levels. Microstructure productivity (i.e., length of narratives) included number of utterances, clauses, and tokens. Microstructure complexity included mean length of utterances, lexical diversity and use of discourse markers as cohesive devices. Narrative macrostructure was assessed for textual coherence through the Pragmatic Evaluation Protocol for Speech Corpora (PREP-CORP). Macrostructure productivity and complexity included, respectively, the recall and sequential order of scenarios, episodes, events and characters. A total of four intervention sessions, lasting approximately 20 min, were delivered individually once a week. This brief intervention addressed explicit instruction about the narrative structure and the use of specific discourse markers to improve cohesion of story retellings. Intervention strategies included verbal scaffolding and modeling, conversational context for retelling the story and visual support with pictures printed from the cartoon. Results showed significant changes in WS students' retelling of the story, both at macro- and microstructure levels, when assessed following a 2-week interval. Outcomes were better in microstructure than in macrostructure, where sequential order (i.e., complexity) did not show significant improvement. These findings are consistent with previous research supporting the use of explicit oral narrative intervention with participants who are at risk of school failure due to communication impairments. Discussion focuses on how assessment and explicit instruction of narrative skills might contribute to effective intervention programs enhancing school engagement in WS students.

RESUMO

El artículo recoge la experiencia de un grupo de personas con enfermedad mental grave y/o duradera, usuarias del Centro de Día Aravaca, que deciden ser voluntarias y ofrecer servicios a la comunidad. Tras la exploración de intereses relacionados con el ámbito de voluntariado se tomó la decisión de realizar un voluntariado en actividades relacionadas con el cuidado de los animales y la naturaleza. Tras una importante búsqueda de recursos pudimos conocer el espacio donde hoy realizamos la actividad: Burrolandia, única reserva de burros de la Comunidad de Madrid. En las instalaciones de esta asociación y junto a los profesionales de la misma, es donde se desarrolla la actividad en su totalidad, obteniendo beneficios importantes en el proceso de rehabilitación psicosocial de los usuarios que participan como voluntarios de la organización (AU)


The article describes the experiences of a group of people with severe mental illness. These people are users of Aravaca Day Center. They decided to volunteer and provide community services. After the exploration of interest we choose to do a voluntary service to the care of animals and nature. After making an important resource search, we found the place where voluntary activity is doing today: Burrolandia, the unique nonprofits association in Madrid, whose main objective is to prevent the extinction of donkeys. The activity has been done at Burrolandia`s facilities under their staff supervision. Users who are volunteers in the organization have made significant gains in the process or psychosocial rehabilitation (AU)

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: In the case of workers with disabilities, family support is often essential to gain access to the labor market and achieve personal autonomy and financial independence, in addition to fostering job satisfaction and permanence in the organization. Moreover, the support offered by organizations is particularly valued by workers with disabilities, as the organizations that hire such people generally go to considerable lengths to ensure their adaptation and integration in the workplace, contributing to job satisfaction and permanence in the organization. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationships between organizational support and family support with job satisfaction and intention to quit the organization among workers with disabilities employed in ordinary firms. METHODS: Our study surveyed 204 workers using a questionnaire, and we used Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) analyses to test these relationships. RESULTS: Our results show that organizational support is a significant explanatory factor in the levels of job satisfaction. Moreover, our results indicate that the participants perceived high levels of support from their families, facilitating the conciliation of work and family life. CONCLUSIONS: Our results have practical implications in order to improve full integration and normalization of workers with disabilities in ordinary jobs.

RESUMO

The osteotome method is an often-used technique of great utility in certain patients with maxillary bone atrophy. However, it has been associated with the provocation of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which has been described as a consequence of working the implant bed with osteotomes. During the placement of maxillary dental implants using the osteotome technique, the trauma induced by percussion with the surgical hammer, along with hyperextension of the neck during the operation, can displace otoliths and induce BPPV. Four cases of BPPV occurring after the preparation of maxillary implant beds are presented. Treatment consists fundamentally of maneuvers to move the calcium carbonate crystals from their anomalous location in the semicircular canal to their correct place in the utricle.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: To appraise female sexual function and to describe the factors that most commonly accompany dysfunction. DESIGN: Transversal, descriptive study. SETTING: Primary care. PARTICIPANTS: Two-hundred and twenty-three women from 18 to 76 seen at an urban health centre between November 2004 and February 2005 and who wanted to take part in the study. MAIN MEASUREMENTS: These were collected in an anonymous questionnaire structured in 5 sections with 53 items. The questionnaire comprised social and economic, cultural and life-style variables; female sexual function (FSF); and perception of own state of health (SF-12). A binary logistical regression analysis was run. RESULTS: Female sexuality reaches its maximum expression at 30-35 years (FSF=30.0, 95% CI, 28.3-31.6). Risk factors for sexual dysfunction were: age over 44 and religion (OR, 6.5; 95% CI, 2.8-15); physical component on the SF-12 below 37 (OR, 3; 95% CI, 1.3-7.2); mental component on the SF-12 below 31 (OR, 3.1; 95% CI, 1.2-7.8). Not having a stable partner was a risk factor for arousal (OR, 9.6; 95% CI, 2.8-24.0); for lubrication (OR, 9.3; 95% CI, 4.0-21.5); for orgasm (OR, 8.8; 95% CI, 3.1-24.8); and for dyspareunia (OR, 8.9; 95% CI, 3.9-20.5). It was not a risk factor for desire or satisfaction with sexual life. CONCLUSIONS: The profile of sexual dysfunction consisted of a woman aged over 44 without a stable partner, who practised religion, was unemployed and had perception of low quality of life.

RESUMO

Errors in the use of medicines are preventable incidents which may occur at any point in a chain beginning with prescription and continuing on through dispensation and administration of medicine; these errors have multi-factorial causes. Those which are potentially the most dangerous take place in hospital environment and some of them directly affect nursing personnel since they occur during the process when medicines are prepared and administered via an intravenous drip or injection. Pre-diluted medicines for intravenous use, known as "ready to use" preparations, help to reduce the amount of errors associated with the preparation and administration of medicines. These preparations guarantee the correct prescribed dose and eliminate errors related to an incorrectly labeled medicine. Moreover these ready to use medicines avoid a manipulation of the pharmaceutical product, limit the risk of particles being dragged, reduce nursing time employed in preparation of medicines substantially, and prevent accidental needle scratches during the preparation process.

RESUMO

Objetivo. Valorar la función sexual femenina y describir los factores que aparecen con más frecuencia junto con su disfunción. Diseño. Estudio descriptivo, transversal. Emplazamiento. Atención primaria. Participantes. Participaron 223 mujeres de 18 a 76 años atendidas en un centro de salud urbano desde noviembre del 2004 hasta febrero de 2005 que desearon participar de forma voluntaria en el estudio. Mediciones principales. Se recogieron mediante cuestionario anónimo estructurado en 5 apartados con 53 ítems. Comprendía variables socioeconómicas, culturales, de estilo de vida, función sexual femenina (IFSF) y autopercepción del estado de salud (SF-12). Se efectuó un análisis de regresión logística binaria. Resultados. La sexualidad femenina logra su máxima expresión entre los 30 y los 35 años (IFSF: 30,0 intervalo de confianza [IC] del 95%, 28,3-31,6). Los factores de riesgo para la disfunción sexual son: edad > 44 años y religión (odds ratio [OR] = 6,5; intervalo de confianza [IC] del 95%, 2,8-15), componente físico del SF-12 < 37 (OR = 3; IC del 95%, 1,3-7,2), componente mental del SF-12 < 31 (OR = 3,1; IC del 95%, 1,2-7,8). No tener pareja estable fue factor de riesgo para la excitación (OR = 9,6; IC del 95%, 2,8-24,0), la lubricación (OR = 9,3; IC del 95%, 4,0-21,5), el orgasmo (OR = 8,8; IC del 95%, 3,1-24,8) y la dispareunia (OR = 8,9; IC del 95%, 3,9-20,5). No fue factor de riesgo para el deseo ni para la satisfacción con la vida sexual. Conclusiones. El perfil de disfunción sexual consistió en mujer mayor de 44 años sin pareja estable, con práctica de alguna religión, desempleada y con baja autopercepción de calidad de vida

RESUMO

Los errores de medicación son incidentes prevenibles que pueden producirse en cualquier lugar de la cadena de prescripción, dispensación y administración de medicamentos y obedecen a causas multifactoriales. Potencialmente, los más graves tienen lugar en el ámbito hospitalario y algunos de ellos afectan directamente al personal de enfermería, ya que acontecen durante el proceso de preparación y administración de medicamentos por vía intravenosa. Los medicamentos prediluidos de uso intravenoso, conocidos como «listos para usar» ayudan a reducir la tasa de errores de medicación asociados a la preparación y administración de medicamentos. Estas preparaciones garantizan la correcta dosis prescrita y eliminan los fallos relacionados con el etiquetado incorrecto. Además, evitan la manipulación de fármaco, limitan el riesgo de arrastre de partículas, reducen sustancialmente el tiempo utilizado por Enfermería e impiden los pinchazos accidentales por aguja durante la preparación

RESUMO

Polyhexamethlene biguanide (PHMB) is an antibacterial agent included in the chlorhexidine group which is active against a wide number of microorganisms including Staphylococcus Aureus Methycilin Resistant (MRSA), Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus Faecalis (VRE) and Acinetobacter baumannii which all cause antibiotic-resistant infections. Traditionally gauze dressings have been used to cover and protect wounds although their porous structure does not constitute an efficient barrier against bacterial penetration, especially when a dressing becomes wet due to the effects of a wound oozing and draining. Recently the use of a dressing soaked in a 0.2% PHMB solution which works as a biological barrier against pathogenic agents has been introduced in clinical practice. On the one hand, this PHMB soaked dressing inhibits bacterial growth in the areas where it is applied and, on the other hand, it prevents the penetration of microorganisms through the dressing itself. Simultaneously while a PHMB soaked dressing carries out these actions, it creates an environment favorable to the proliferation of the normal flora found in the epidermis. As opposed to porous gauze dressings, a PHMB dressing remains active during 72 hours even in wet environs. Its wide anti-micro-bacterial range prevents infections in surgical, acute or chronic wounds and in any type of intra-corporal access susceptible to infection, such as by means of intravascular catheters, tracheotomies, or thoracic tubes. A PHMB dressing can also be used as a primary covering to treat a chronic wound since it does not interfere in the process of tissue reepithelization.

RESUMO

El Polyhexametileno biguanida es un antimicrobiano perteneciente al grupo de la clorhexidina (biguanidas) activo frente a un amplio número de microorganismos entre los que se incluyen el MRSA (Staphylococcus aureus Methycilin Resistente),VRE (Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus faecalis) y Acinetobacter baumannii, responsables de infecciones antibiótico resistentes. Carece de toxicidad sobre los tejidos vivos siendo sumamente biocompatible. Tradicionalmente se han utilizado los apósitos de gasa para cubrir y proteger las heridas, aunque su estructura porosa no constituye una barrera eficaz contra la penetración bacteriana, especialmente cuando el apósito se humedece por efecto de la supuración y el drenaje. Recientemente se ha introducido en la práctica clínica un apósito impregnado con Polyhexametileno biguanida al 0,2%, que actúa como barrera biológica contra los agentes patógenos. Por una parte, inhibe el crecimiento bacteriano en las zonas donde se aplica y, por otra, evita la penetración de microorganismos a través del mismo. Simultáneamente a esta acción, crea un ambiente favorable para proliferación de la flora normal de la epidermis. A diferencia de los apósitos de gasa porosa, mantiene su actividad incluso en ambiente húmedo durante unas 72 horas. Su amplio espectro antimicrobiano previene la infección en las heridas quirúrgicas, heridas agudas y crónicas y en cualquier tipo de acceso intracorporal susceptible de infección (catéteres intravasculares, traqueostomía, tubos torácicos...). También puede utilizarse como revestimiento primario en caso de heridas crónicas, ya que no interfiere en el proceso de reepitelización tisular
