INTRODUCTION: Breast cancer affects women of different ages, and comorbidities resulting from treatment can affect postural stability. The study aimed to evaluate the influence of age and lymphedema on the postural balance of women undergoing breast cancer treatment. METHODS: The study included 77 women undergoing breast cancer treatment, divided into different groups: 37 young adult women divided into 17 with lymphedema (GYL) and 20 young adults without lymphedema (GY); 40 elderly women, 20 elderly women with lymphedema (GEL) and 20 elderly women without lymphedema (GE). Mini Balance Evaluation Systems Test (Mini BESTest) and Falls Efficacy Scale - International (FES-I) were used. RESULTS: Mini BESTest and FES-I between the groups showed that GE and GEL had a significant difference to GY. Mini BESTest Total and Time Up and Go TUG-Double Task showed that GE has a significant difference to GYL, with GE and GEL having lower scores. Moderate negative correlation in the GEL between FES-I and Mini BESTest. In the age correlation between the Mini BESTest, FES-I, TUG, and double task TUG, a moderate positive correlation was observed for TUG. GEL showed a moderate positive correlation for FES-I and double-task TUG, strong for TUG, and moderate negative correlation with Mini BESTest. Correlation of the volume difference between the limb affected and not affected by lymphedema and the FES-I, Mini BESTest, TUG, and TUG double task, GYL showed moderate negative correlation for TUG. CONCLUSION: Age and lymphedema influenced the dynamic postural balance of women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of High Voltage Pulsed Current (HVPC) on the integration of total skin grafts in rats submitted to nicotine action. MATERIALS AND METHODS: For this purpose, 60 adult Wistar rats randomly distributed in 6 groups of 10 animals were analyzed. The electrical stimulation (anodic and cathodic stimulation, motor level, 30 min at 10 Hz; minimum voltage 20 µs and 100 µs pulse interval) was applied for seven days, starting on the third day after surgery and after the dressing was removed from the graft. RESULTS: Anodic HVPC promoted greater graft integration, demonstrating a lower percentage of tissue contraction, a lower number of inflammatory infiltrates and a greater amount of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), as well as a higher number of newly formed blood vessels. CONCLUSIONS: HVPC can positively influence the integration of skin grafts in nicotine-treated rats. anodic HVPC is shown to promote greater integration in relation to a lower percentage of tissue contraction, a lower number of inflammatory infiltrates and a greater amount of vascular endothelial growth factor and newformed blood vessels. Whereas, the cathodic polarity has presented smaller amount of tissue gap.
