RESUMO

Introducción: El pie diabético isquémico y la enfermedad arterial periférica, son dos enfermedades que ocasionan dolor por isquemia crítica y ponen en peligro la viabilidad de las extremidades inferiores. Objetivo: Demostrar la efectividad de la terapia regenerativa con plasma rico en plaquetas en pacientes con las enfermedades citadas. Métodos: Estudio longitudinal, prospectivo y aleatorizado realizado en el Servicio de Angiología del Hospital: Julio Trigo López, entre enero 2016-diciembre 2017. Se incluyeron 26 pacientes en dos grupos de estudios, 10 pacientes no diabéticos con claudicación intermitente y 16 pacientes con lesiones isquémicas en el pie del diabético. Se aplicó plasma rico en plaquetas por vía intramuscular en la pierna afectada, en el primer grupo y de forma intra- y perilesional en el pie del diabético isquémico. Resultados: Se obtuvo alivio del dolor y mejoría en más del 70 por ciento de los pacientes en la distancia de claudicación por encima o cerca de los 200 metros. En los pacientes con pie diabético isquémico, alivio del dolor y cierre de las lesiones isquémicas en el 81,3 por ciento, solo 3 pacientes requirieron amputaciones mayores de los miembros inferiores. Conclusiones: La terapia regenerativa resulta efectiva en el salvataje de las extremidades inferiores en los pacientes estudiados, asociada a los procedimientos convencionales empleados en la cirugía revascularizadora; disminuye la amputación mayor de miembros inferiores y es una posibilidad terapéutica más en manos de especialistas entrenados, por su impacto social y en la calidad de vida de pacientes y familiares(AU)


Introduction: Ischemic diabetic foot and peripheral arterial disease are two conditions that cause pain and put in danger the functionality of lower limbs. Objective: To demonstrate the effectiveness of regenerative therapy with platelet-rich plasma in patients with the above mentioned diseases. Methods: Longitudinal, prospective and randomized study that was conducted in the Angiology Service of Julio Trigo López Hospital, from January 2016 to December 2017. There were 26 patients included in 2 groups: 10 non-diabetic patients with intermittent claudication and 16 patients with ischemic lesions in the diabetic foot. Platelet-rich plasma was used instramuscularly in an affected legs of the first group, and intraperilesional and perilesional in the diabetic foot. Results: There was pain relief and improvement in more than 70 percent of patients in the claudication distance higher or near to 200 meters. In the patients presenting ischemic diabetic foot, pain relief and closing of ischemic lesions in the 81,3 percent , just 3 patients required major amputations of lower limbs. Conclusions: Regenerative therapy results effective in the rescue of lower limbs in patients presenting peripheral arterial disease and ischemic diabetic foot. It also reduces major amputations of lower limbs and it is another therapeutic option in the hands of trained specialists due to its social impact and in the life quality of patients and their families(AU)

RESUMO

Introducción: Los pacientes con enfermedad arterial periférica sometidos a cirugía vascular no cardíaca programada presentan un riesgo significativo de complicaciones cardiovasculares, debido a la enfermedad cardíaca sintomática o asintomática subyacente. Objetivo: Valorar el riesgo coronario en los pacientes tributarios de cirugía vascular no cardíaca. Métodos: Estudio descriptivo prospectivo en 35 pacientes del Servicio de Angiología y Cirugía Vascular del Hospital Clínico Quirúrgico Hermanos Ameijeiras. El período de estudio osciló entre octubre de 2013 y mayo de 2016. Las variables cualitativas se expresaron como frecuencias absolutas y relativas. Se evaluó la asociación entre las variables mediante el test de Fischer, se usó el coeficiente de Pearson para relacionar los valores del índice de presiones tobillo brazo y los niveles del calcio score. Resultados: Predominó el sexo masculino y la edad menor de 60 años. El tabaquismo y la hipertensión arterial fueron los factores de riesgo de mayor frecuencia. A pesar de no existir diferencia significativa (p = 0,563) al asociar el calcio score y el índice de presiones tobillo-brazo, sí existió una correlación lineal negativa entre ellos. Las complicaciones perioperatorias presentadas en el grupo de moderado-alto riesgo quirúrgico fueron la fibrilación ventricular, el infarto agudo de miocardio y el paro cardíaco. Conclusiones: La valoración del riesgo coronario es una herramienta útil en la detección de lesiones coronarias significativas que pueden favorecer la aparición de complicaciones perioperatorias en los pacientes que son tributarios de tratamiento quirúrgico revascularizador no cardíaco(AU)


Introduction: Patients with peripheral arterial disease undergoing scheduled non-cardiac vascular surgery present a significant risk of cardiovascular complications due to underlying symptomatic or asymptomatic heart disease. Objective: To assess coronary risk in patients eligible for non-cardiac vascular surgery. Methods: A prospective descriptive study was carried out in 35 patients of the Angiology and Vascular Surgery service in Hermanos Ameijeiras Hospital. The study was conducted between October 2013 and May 2016. Qualitative variables were summarized as absolute and relative frequencies. It was assessed the association between the variables using the Fischer´s test; Pearson´s coefficient was used to relate the values of the index of ankle- arm pressure and the levels of calcium score. Results: Male sex predominated; and ages less than 60 years. Smoking habit and high blood pressure were the most common risk factors. Although there is no significant difference (p= 0,563) when associating the calcium score and the ankle-brachial pressure index, there was a negative linear correlation between them. The peri-operative complications presented in the moderate to high surgical risk group were ventricular fibrillation, acute myocardial infarction and cardiac arrest. Conclusions: Identification of coronary risk is a useful tool in the detection of significant coronary lesions that may favor the emergence of peri-operative complications in patients who are scheduled for non-cardiac revascularization's surgical treatment(AU)

RESUMO

Introduction: Diabetes is one of the expensive diseases due to its chronic nature and gradual involvement of multiple organs, Moreover loss of economic productivity further enhances the cost of care. Several factors were reported to have impact on overall economic burden in diabetic patients. So, the present study aims to determine influence of various socio-demographic and clinical factors on expenditure of diabetes care among patients residing in resettlement colony of East Delhi. Methodology: A community based one year longitudinal study was conducted in Kalyanpuri area of East Delhi. All the diabetes patients aged 25 years and who were the permanent residents of Kalyanpuri, attending the Diabetic Clinic of a government hospital in November-December 2014 were selected for the study. A pre-tested semi-structured interview schedule was used as study tool. Each subject was followed up 3 monthly from January to December 2015. Results: Data of 150 study subjects was analyzed. Out of 150 subjects 45(30 %) were male and 105 (70%) female. Overall mean age of study subjects was 53 ± 10 years Among socio-demographic factors, Expenditure on diabetes care showed significant association with male gender and among clinical factors, longer duration since diagnosis, use of Insulin with Oral Hypoglycemic drugs, hospitalization and utilization of private care has shown positive association with expenditure on diabetes care. Conclusion: The present study concludes that there is need of better provisioning of services for diabetes care in government health facilities to cater needs of growing diabetic population..

RESUMO

Patients presenting with prostate cancers undergo clinical staging evaluations to determine the extent of disease to guide therapeutic recommendations. Management options may include watchful waiting, surgery, or radiation therapy. Thus, initial risk stratification of prostate cancer patients is important for achieving optimal therapeutic results or cancer cure and preservation of quality of life. Predictive biomarkers for risks of complications or late effects of treatment are needed to inform clinical decisions for treatment selection. Here, we analyzed pre-treatment plasma metabolites in a cohort of prostate cancer patients (N = 99) treated with Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) at Medstar-Georgetown University Hospital in a longitudinal, quality-of-life study to determine if individuals experiencing radiation toxicities can be identified by a molecular profile in plasma prior to treatment. We used a multiple reaction mass spectrometry-based molecular phenotyping of clinically annotated plasma samples in a retrospective outcome analysis to identify candidate biomarker panels correlating with adverse clinical outcomes following radiation therapy. We describe the discovery of candidate biomarkers, based on small molecule metabolite panels, showing high correlations (AUCs ≥ 95%) with radiation toxicities, suitable for validation studies in an expanded cohort of patients.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Treponema pallidum and HIV are transmitted frequently through sexual contact, these agents with epidemiological similarities co-infect the same host. The current number of HIV-infected cases in Turkey is increasing. For this reason, we aimed to reveal the characteristics of syphilis in HIV/AIDS cases. METHODS: A retrospective longitudinal cohort study was performed, patients were followed up at 24 clinics in 16 cities from all seven regions of Turkey between January 2010 to April 2018. We examined the socio-demographic characteristics, laboratory parameters and neurosyphilis association in HIV/AIDS-syphilis co-infected cases. RESULTS: Among 3,641 patients with HIV-1 infection, 291 (8%) patients were diagnosed with syphilis co-infection. Most patients were older than 25 years (92%), 96% were males, 74% were working, 23% unemployed, and 3% were students. The three highest prevalence of syphilis were in Black Sea (10.3%), Mediterranean (8.4%) and Marmara Regions (7.4%). As for sexual orientation, 46% were heterosexuals, 42% men who have sex with men (MSM), and no data available for 12%. Patients with the number of CD4+ ≤ 350 mm3 reached 46%, 17% of the patients received antiretroviral therapy and neurosyphilis association reached 9%. CONCLUSION: Although HIV/AIDS-syphilis co-infection status appeared high in heterosexuals, MSM had a moderate level increase in cases. Our results suggested syphilis co-infection in HIV/AIDS cases should be integral part of monitoring in a national sexual transmitted diseases surveillance system. However, our data may provide base for HIV/syphilis prevention and treatment efforts in the future.

RESUMO

The features of herpes zoster share some commonalities with depression, including decreased cellular immunity, a close correlation with nutritional status, and a higher prevalence in the elderly population. We aimed to assess the association between herpes zoster infection and depression in the Korean population.We performed a longitudinal follow-up study of a nationwide sample cohort derived from the Korean National Health Insurance Service database. Individuals diagnosed with depression between 2002 and 2013 (n = 58,278) as well as matched controls (n = 233,112), with both groups comprising 34.3% male and 65.7% female subjects, were extracted and analyzed for the presence of herpes zoster infection. Depression was diagnosed based on the International Classification of Diseases tenth revision (ICD-10) codes F31-F39, while herpes zoster was diagnosed as ICD-10 B02.The rate of herpes zoster infection was higher in the depressed group (6.8% [3967/58,278]) than in the control group (6.3% [14,689/233,122], P < .001). The adjusted hazard ratio (HR) for herpes zoster infection was 1.09 (95% CI: 1.05-1.13) in the depressed group (P < .001). Subgroup analyses revealed that the adjusted HRs for herpes zoster infection were higher only in women younger than 60 years among participants with depression. These HRs were 1.13 (95% CI: 1.02-1.25; P = .016) in women younger than 40 years and 1.11 (95% CI: 1.04-1.17; P < .001) in women aged 40-59 years.Depression is a predictor of herpes zoster infection in Korean women younger than 60 years.

RESUMO

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory autoimmune disease associated with increased prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Here, we investigated the effect of the combination of cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 inhibitors and metformin on the rate of admission in patients with RA and T2DM and compared it with that of only COX-2 inhibitors.In total, 1268 subjects with RA and T2DM under COX-2 inhibitor and metformin therapy were selected from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan, along with 2536 patients as 1:2 sex-, age-, and index year-matched controls without metformin therapy. Cox proportional hazard analysis was used to compare the rate of admission during the 10 years of follow-up.At the end of the follow-up, 72 enrolled subjects (1.89%) had admission, including 9 from the combination group (0.71%) and 63 from the COX-2 inhibitor group (2.48%). The combination group was associated with a lower rate of admission at the end of follow-up (P < .001). Cox proportional hazard regression analysis revealed the lower rate of admission for subjects under combination therapy (adjusted hazard ratio of 0.275; 95% confidence interval = 0.136-0.557, P < .001).Patients with RA and T2DM receiving the combination of COX-2 inhibitors and metformin were associated with lower admission rate than those on COX-2 inhibitors alone, and this effect may be attributed to the decrease in the levels of proinflammatory factors.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: : Bariatric surgery promotes significant weight loss and improvement of associated comorbidities; however, nutrients deficiencies and weight regain may occur in the middle-late postoperative period. AIM: To investigate nutritional status in 10 years follow-up. METHODS: : Longitudinal retrospective study in which anthropometric, biochemical indicators and nutritional intake were assessed before and after one, two, three, four, five and ten years of Roux-en Y gastric bypass through analysis of medical records. RESULTS: : After ten years there was a reduction of 29.2% of initial weight; however, 87.1% of patients had significant weight regain. Moreover, there was an increase of incidence of iron (9.2% to 18.5%), vitamin B12 (4.2% to 11.1%) and magnesium deficiency (14.1% to 14.8%). Folic acid concentrations increased and the percentage of individuals with glucose (40.4% to 3.7%), triglycerides (38% to 7.4%), HDL cholesterol (31 % to 7.4%) and uric acid (70.5% to 11.1%) abnormalities reduced. Also, there is a reduction of food intake at first year postoperative. After 10 years, there was an increase in energy, protein and lipid intake, also a reduction in folid acid intake. CONCLUSIONS: : Roux-en Y gastric bypass is an effective procedure to promote weight loss and improve comorbidities associated with obesity. However, comparison between postoperative period of five and 10 years showed a high prevalence of minerals deficiency and a significant weight regain, evidencing the need for nutritional follow-up in the postoperative period.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Cognitive processes are important factors in the aetiology of pathological gambling and they are always important aspect of all gambling interventions. Among other things, the gamblers' decision-making process and persistence in gambling is under the influence of their perception of the importance of knowledge/skills versus luck in different gambling activities. In this study, we examine cognitive distortions of pathological gamblers and their perceptions on the significance of luck versus knowledge/skills in different games of chance. Effects of age and length of treatment are also examined. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 65 pathological gamblers at the gambling addicts' club in Zagreb were included in the study. Cognitive distortions were measured using a modified version of the Gambling related cognitive distortions scale (Ricijas et al. 2011). Participant thoughts on the role of luck versus knowledge/skills in games of chance were measured with a questionnaire especially designed for this study. All instruments were self-assessment questionnaires and anonymously filled out during a group sessions. RESULTS: In general, results showed moderate cognitive distortions in terms of gambling beliefs, but significant perception of the importance of knowledge/skills for some games, especially sports betting and card games. Younger patients and patients in treatment for longer period have lower illusion of control. Length of treatment also seem to effect gambling-related superstition beliefs and incorrect understanding of probability, as well as importance of knowledge/skills for success in sports betting and card games. CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study lead to the indirect conclusion that length of treatment is a positive factor, which likely influences gamblers' cognitive distortions. This conclusion certainly requires additional examination using longitudinal studies, which would provide a better overview of whether these differences are in fact due to the length of treatment and also to confirm its value for future abstinence from gambling activities.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Red and (particularly) processed meats are high in cholesterol and saturated and solid fatty acids. Their consumption is considered one of the risk factors for metabolic disorders. Numerous studies demonstrated a possible association between red meat consumption and cardiovascular disease (CVD). In this protocol, we propose a systematic review of the literature to examine the associations of red meat consumption with CVD incidence and mortality, and explore the potential dose-response relationship. METHODS: We will search MEDLINE/PubMed, Scopus, SciELO, LILACS, ScienceDirect, Web of Science, Cochrane (CENTRAL), WHOLIS, PAHO, and Embase. We will include prospective epidemiological studies (longitudinal cohort). Risk of bias will be assessed using the Newcastle-Ottawa scale (NOS). Four independent researchers will conduct all evaluations. Disagreements will be referred to a fifth reviewer. We will summarize our findings using a narrative approach and tables to describe the characteristics of the included studies. The heterogeneity between trial results will be evaluated using a standard chi-squared test with P < .05. We will conduct the study in accordance with the guideline of the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-analyses Protocols (PRISMA-P). RESULTS: This review will evaluate the association between red meat consumption and incidence of CVD and mortality (primary outcome measures). The secondary outcome measure will include the dose-response effect. CONCLUSION: The findings of this systematic review will summarize the latest evidence of the association between red meat consumption and incidence of CVD and mortality and the dose-response effect through a systematic review and meta-analysis.

RESUMO

With the deepening population aging process in China, the medical expenses of older adults has become a widespread concerned. Medical insurance is a major source of Chinese medical financing and payment. The study aims to understand the current status of medical expenses for older adults and explore the effect of different types of health insurance on medical expenses in China.The data came from the Chinese Longitudinal Health Longevity Survey (CLHLS) in 2014. The Kruskal-Wallis test and general multivariate linear regression model were applied to analyze the current situation and to explore how medical insurance as the main payment impacts medical expenses.A total of 4376 older participants were included in this study. The median of medical expenses of a total was 1500 Yuan per year. The proportions of participants who had the urban employee-based basic medical insurance (UE-BMI), the urban residents basic medical insurance (UR-BMI), the new rural cooperative medical insurance scheme (NCMS), and the commercial medical insurance were 10.8%, 8.4%, 72.7%, and 0.9%, respectively. 34.8% of older adults paid the health care service via the NCMS and 11.9% paid via the UE-BMI. Participating in the NCMS and UR-BMI are significantly related to the level of the medical fees of older adults. UE-BMI, UR-BMI, and NCMS as main payment eased the pressure of medical expenses.The influence of different types of medical insurances as main payments on the medical expenses of older adults is varied. Implementation of medical insurance should be taken to further relieve the medical expenses of older adults.

RESUMO

The present study evaluated the association between appendectomy and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) using a national sample cohort of the Korean population. In this cohort study, the Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort of individuals ≥20 years old was collected from 2002 to 2013. A total of 14,995 appendectomy participants were 1:4 matched with 59,980 control subjects for age, group, sex, income group, region of residence, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. We analyzed the occurrence of RA in both the appendectomy and control groups. Appendectomies were identified using operation codes for appendicitis only. RA was defined by International Classification of Disease-10 codes (M05 or M06) and medication histories. Crude and adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) were analyzed using a stratified Cox proportional hazard model. Subgroup analyses were performed on groups stratified by age and sex. The adjusted HR for RA was 1.02 (95% confidence interval = 0.76-1.38) in the appendectomy group (P = .883). In all of the subgroup analyses according to age and sex, the adjusted HRs for RA were not higher in the appendectomy group than those in the control group. We could not identify any significant relationship between appendectomy and RA.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to evaluate the height growth of Class I and III orthodontic patients according to the Fishman skeletal maturation index (SMI) and to compare it with that of a general population. METHODS: The study sample included 81 Class I and 71 Class III adolescents who had height measurements and hand-wrist radiographs taken annually and categorized according to SMI. Height completion rate, residual height, height increase per sequential SMI stage, and height velocity were analyzed. Sex differences were evaluated and comparisons between Class I and Class III groups were made. In addition, the height of orthodontic patients was indirectly compared with that of the general population. RESULTS: In boys and girls, height completion rate was >90% at SMI 6, residual height was fewer than 10 cm at SMI 7, and height increase per sequential SMI stage was greatest from SMI 6 to SMI 7. Height velocity was greatest from SMI 5 to SMI 6 in boys and from SMI 4 to SMI 5 in girls. CONCLUSIONS: There was no significant difference in body height parameters for all SMI stages between Class I and Class III adolescents. Adolescents who had orthodontic treatment were not shorter in stature at growth completion compared with the general population.

RESUMO

This study aimed to measure the effects of a Computer-based Auditory Training Program (CBATP) on an adolescent diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). This is the case report of a male, 14-year-old adolescent diagnosed with ASD. The individual was submitted to basic audiological evaluation, central auditory processing assessment and hearing electrophysiology (EP), pre- and post-therapeutic intervention. Central auditory processing (CAP) was assessed by means of the following instruments: Time-compressed Speech Test (TCST), Random Gap Detection Test (RGDT), Staggered Spondaic Word Test (SSWT), Frequency (Pitch) Pattern Sequence Test (FPST), and Duration Pattern Test (DPT). The P300 component of the Event-related Potential (ERP) was used in the hearing EP. Pre-intervention assessment of CAP showed changes in the auditory skills of closure, figure-ground and temporal ordering, but normal temporal resolution ability. Post-intervention evaluation of CAP showed improvement in all previously mentioned auditory skills, except for the figure-ground ability, which remained unchanged. Regarding the findings of the hearing EP, a decrease in the latency of the P300 component was observed pre- and post-intervention. This study demonstrated that the use of a CBATP resulted in improvement in the hearing abilities assessed in an adolescent diagnosed with ASD.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To explore whether thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) concentration in patients with a diagnosis of hypothyroidism is associated with increased all cause mortality and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and fractures. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: The Health Improvement Network (THIN), a database of electronic patient records from UK primary care. PARTICIPANTS: Adult patients with incident hypothyroidism from 1 January 1995 to 31 December 2017. EXPOSURE: TSH concentration in patients with hypothyroidism. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Ischaemic heart disease, heart failure, stroke/transient ischaemic attack, atrial fibrillation, any fractures, fragility fractures, and mortality. Longitudinal TSH measurements from diagnosis to outcomes, study end, or loss to follow-up were collected. An extended Cox proportional hazards model with TSH considered as a time varying covariate was fitted for each outcome. RESULTS: 162 369 patients with hypothyroidism and 863 072 TSH measurements were included in the analysis. Compared with the reference TSH category (2-2.5 mIU/L), risk of ischaemic heart disease and heart failure increased at high TSH concentrations (>10 mIU/L) (hazard ratio 1.18 (95% confidence interval 1.02 to 1.38; P=0.03) and 1.42 (1.21 to 1.67; P<0.001), respectively). A protective effect for heart failure was seen at low TSH concentrations (hazard ratio 0.79 (0.64 to 0.99; P=0.04) for TSH <0.1 mIU/L and 0.76 (0.62 to 0.92; P=0.006) for 0.1-0.4 mIU/L). Increased mortality was observed in both the lowest and highest TSH categories (hazard ratio 1.18 (1.08 to 1.28; P<0.001), 1.29 (1.22 to 1.36; P<0.001), and 2.21 (2.07 to 2.36; P<0.001) for TSH <0.1 mIU/L, 4-10 mIU/L, and >10 mIU/L. An increase in the risk of fragility fractures was observed in patients in the highest TSH category (>10 mIU/L) (hazard ratio 1.15 (1.01 to 1.31; P=0.03)). CONCLUSIONS: In patients with a diagnosis of hypothyroidism, no evidence was found to suggest a clinically meaningful difference in the pattern of long term health outcomes (all cause mortality, atrial fibrillation, ischaemic heart disease, heart failure, stroke/transient ischaemic attack, fractures) when TSH concentrations were within recommended normal limits. Evidence was found for adverse health outcomes when TSH concentration is outside this range, particularly above the upper reference value.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Unintentional injuries are one of the most common health problems in childhood and adolescence. Information on the distribution and variation of accident prevalence is an important basis for accident prevention. The second follow-up survey of the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents (KiGGS Wave 2, 2014-17) enables the continuation of non-fatal accident monitoring at the federal level that began with the KiGGS baseline study (2003-06). METHODS: KiGGS Wave 2 is a nationwide cross-sectional survey conducted by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) with participation of 15,023 children and adolescents aged 0 to 17 (response rate: 40.1%). Parents were interviewed about unintentional injuries of their children. Information on accidents is available from 2429 children and adolescents (1-17 years). Twelve-month prevalences with 95% CI were calculated and comparisons were made between KiGGS Wave 2 and the previous KiGGS surveys. RESULTS: Within the last 12 months, 16.5% of 1­ to 17-year-old children and adolescents were medically treated for an accidental injury, with boys (18.6%) requiring treatment significantly more frequently than girls (14.3%). Of the total, 4.8% had three or more accidents. Every eighth injured child (12.4%) stayed in hospital for at least one night. Children and adolescents under 18 years were most likely to have accidents at home, in educational and care facilities, on playgrounds and in sports facilities. CONCLUSION: Injury risks in childhood and adolescence vary primarily according to age and gender, but also, for example, according to personal and environmental factors. Knowledge of such contextual conditions is of great importance for the development of prevention measures. Since the beginning of the KiGGS study, there have been hardly any changes and no decrease in unintentional injuries in childhood and adolescence.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Daratumumab is a promising novel agent for relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM). However, there are limited data on its efficacy and toxicity profiles in real-world patients, especially in the Asian population. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a multicenter, retrospective, longitudinal cohort study set between January 2017 and April 2019. We collected and analyzed clinical and survival data of 21 patients treated with daratumumab monotherapy. All patients were previously exposed to proteasome inhibitors and immunomodulatory drugs. RESULTS: The overall response rate was 42.1%, including one complete remission (4.8%) and three very good partial responses (14.3%). The cycles of daratumumab delivered were three (range=1-10 cycles) and the median progression-free survival was 6 months, while the overall survival was not reached. Infusion reaction was observed in nine patients (42.9%), and one discontinued permanently. Fatigue was the most common adverse event (52.4%), and there were five cases of documented infection during daratumumab treatment, two of them leading to the death of the patient. CONCLUSION: Daratumumab monotherapy showed fairly promising activity with modest tolerance in heavily treated Asian RRMM patients.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: to evaluate the applicability of the "Timing of Acute Care Surgery" (TACS) color classification system in a tertiary public hospital of a developing country. METHODS: we conducted a longitudinal, retrospective study in a single center, from March to August 2016 and the same period in 2017. We opted for the selection of four surgical specialties with high demand for emergencies, previously trained on the TACS system. For comparisons with the previous classifications, we considered emergencies as reds and oranges and urgencies, as yellow, with an ideal time interval for surgery of one hour and six hours, respectively. RESULTS: non-elective procedures accounted for 61% of the total number of surgeries. The red, orange and yellow classifications were predominant. There was a significant improvement in the time before surgery in the yellow color after the TACS system. Day and night periods influenced the results, with better ones during the night. CONCLUSION: this is the first study to use the TACS system in the daily routine of an operating room. The TACS system improved the time of attendance of surgeries classified as yellow.
