RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Raynaud's phenomenon (RP) is a common condition and causes pain, paraesthesia, ulceration and gangrene. Botulinum toxin A (Btx-A) is effective when injected via a digital palmar approach, in the treatment of severe RP. However, hand weakness resulting from lumbrical malfunction is a recognized complication. This study aimed to determine the effect of Btx-A injected via a dorsal approach. METHOD: Forty patients received 100 units of Btx-A, injected across both hands via a dorsal approach. Each patient had a baseline, 6- and 12-week hand assessment and thermographic image (FLIR E60bx) performed for the study. RESULTS: Eighty-eight percent of patients reported an improvement in symptoms including reduction in pain, improved colour change with reduced swelling and edema at 6 weeks. Of these patients, 80% reported an improvement in cold intolerance with a reduction in the frequency and severity of Raynaud's attacks. There was a significant improvement in both the DASH score (p = 0.001), Kapandji score (p = 0.001) and hand strength (p < 0.05). No patients reported weakness. Improvements in hand function and symptoms of RP were still evident at 12 weeks. CONCLUSIONS: Btx-A injected via a dorsal approach improves symptoms and reduces the number of RP. We have shown an effective non-surgical approach technique to treat RP.Key Points• Raynaud's phenomenon is a common vasospastic disorder of the digital vessels, which can cause severe pain, restrictions to hand function and ulceration.• Dorsal botulinum toxin type A injections can improve the symptoms of secondary Raynaud's phenomenon and hand function for approximately 3 months.

RESUMO

Una de las principales causas de la falla de los ciclos de fecundación in vitro es la aneuploídia embrionaria. OBJETVO: determinar si las pruebas de tamizaje genético pre-implantacional favorece la posibilidad de embarazos MÉTODOS: Se realizó un revisión sistemática y meta-análisis. Buscamos en las bases PUBMED y EMBAS, estudios publicados entre 2006-2016, que compararan el número de embarazos en fecundación in vitro con y sin tamizeje genético preimplantaicon RESULTADOS: De los 115 artículos analizados, 4 cumplieron los criterios de selección. Evaluamos un total de 221 ciclos con tamizje y 592 sin. No encontramos diferencias en la posibilidad de embarazo (RR 0.88; IC95% 0.71-1.10; p=0.28). Al hacer análisis por subgrupo de técnica de tamizaje, encontramos que el uso de hibridación fluosrescente in situ se asoció a una disminución en la posibilidad de embarazo (3 estudios, RR 0.53; IC95% 0.36-0.77; p=0.0009); mientras que el uso de hibidración genómica comparativa se asoció a un aumeto (1 estudio, RR 1.58; IC 95% 1.24-2.00; p<0.001). CONCLUSION: La eficacia de las pruebas de tamizaje genñeticos son dependientes de la técnica, por lo que se deberia favorecer el uso de hibidración genómica comparativa.


Probably, the main cause in IVF failure is the transfer of aneuploid embryos. OBJECT: To determine if the use of preimplantational genetic screening improves the pregnancy rate in IVF cycles, compared to regular IVF. METHODS: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis, searching in PUBMED and EMBASE databases studies published between 2006-2016, comparing the pregnancy rates in women undergoing IVF with PGS with that of women undergoing IVF only. RESULTS: Of the 115 articles found, 4 met the selection criteria, with a total of 734 women between 33 and 41 years: 221 with PGS and 592 controls. We found no association between the use of PGS and pregnancy (RR 0.88, 95% CI 0.71-1.10, p = 0.28). However, we performed a subgroup analysis by technique of PGS, and found that fluorescent in situ hybridization was associated with a diminished risk of pregnancy (3 studies;(RR 0.53; 95% CI 0.36-0.77; p = 0.0009), whereas comparative genomic hybridization was associated with an increase (1 study, RR 1.58, CI95% 1,24-2.00, p<0.001). CONCLUSION: The effectivity of PGS is determined by the technique for PGS; therefore, only comparative genomic hybridization should be offered.
