RESUMO

Objective: To describe the perception of elderly women about cervical cancer screening (PCCU). Method: Descriptive study with a qualitative approach. The subjects were 12 elderly women enrolled in the Family Health Strategy (ESF) Vila Anália in the Municipality of Montes Claros / MG. The data were collected in the 2015, by semi-structured interview, transcribed in full and analyzed by the Thematic Content Analysis technique. Results: Most of the interviewed women have the empirical understanding of the preventive examination, considering it important, but many of them admit feelings of shame and fear when they undergo the examination. The orientation regarding the frequency of preventive exams is shared by health professionals, but many do not follow it. Conclusion: It is necessary to elaborate educational actions on the subject with a focus on the elderly women, in order to clarify the importance of the preventive examination and to stimulate women's proactiveness in the prevention of possible diseases

RESUMO

Objective: The study's purpose has been to relate the drug interactions of oral anticoagulants with other medications used by elderly people hospitalized in a cardiology hospital. Methods: It is a prospective exploratory study with 16 elderly people taking oral anticoagulant, who were hospitalized at a governmental cardiology institution in São Paulo State over the period from November to December 2017. Results: Among 73 medicines prescribed and analyzed in the Micromedex 2.0, 24 (33.3%) interacted with Warfarin, the only prescribed oral anticoagulant. There were found Omeprazole (70; 97.2%); Dipyrone (68; 94.4%); Simvastatin (43; 59.72%); Enoxaparin (42; 58.33%); Amiodarone (29; 40.27%); Sertraline (28; 38.88%); Spironolactone (21; 29.16%); and Atenolol (11; 15.27%), whose interactions could either potentialize or inhibit the anticoagulant action. Considering the interactions, 14 (58.33%) were of moderate severity, 10 (41.66%) of high severity and 14 (58.33%) of fast effect. Conclusion: Polypharmacy and the use of oral anticoagulants in elderly patients bearing heart diseases are common events. Moreover, a better understanding about drug interactions is also required, bearing in mind that they can either potentialize or decrease the anticoagulant effect, with high or moderate severity

RESUMO

AIMS: In order to determine whether and for whom serial radiological evaluation is necessary in one-part proximal humerus fractures, we set out to describe the clinical history and predictors of secondary displacement in patients sustaining these injuries. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between January 2014 and April 2016, all patients with an isolated, nonoperatively treated one-part proximal humerus fracture were prospectively followed up. Clinical and radiological evaluation took place at less than two, six, 12, and 52 weeks. Fracture configuration, bone quality, and comminution were determined on the initial radiographs. Fracture healing, secondary displacement, and treatment changes were recorded during follow-up. RESULTS: In 100 patients (59 female, 41 male; mean age 57 years), 91 of the fractures (91%) remained stable. In five of nine patients (55%) with secondary displacement, surgery was recommended. Comminution, present in 23 patients (23%), was identified as a predictor of secondary displacement (p < 0.001). Patients' age, sex, fracture configuration, and bone quality were not associated with secondary displacement (p ≥ 0.438). Nonoperative treatment resulted in a mean absolute Constant score (CS) of 80 (49 to 98), relative CS of 101% (63% to 138%), median subjective shoulder value of 95% (interquartile range (IQR) 90% to 100%), and median EuroQol five-dimensional questionnaire score of 0.89 (IQR 0.80 to 1.00) with bone union in all cases at one-year follow-up. CONCLUSION: Radiological re-evaluation was only necessary in patients presenting with comminution and may be redundant for 77% of patients with one-part proximal humerus fractures. Nonoperative treatment of one-part proximal humerus fractures remains the mainstay of treatment with a low rate of secondary surgery, a high union rate, and good clinical results.

RESUMO

AIMS: This study explores data quality in operation type and fracture classification recorded as part of a large research study and a national audit with an independent review. PATIENTS AND METHODS: At 17 centres, an expert surgeon reviewed a randomly selected subset of cases from their centre with regard to fracture classification using the AO system and type of operation performed. Agreement for these variables was then compared with the data collected during conduct of the World Hip Trauma Evaluation (WHiTE) cohort study. Both types of surgery and fracture classification were collapsed to identify the level of detail of reporting that achieved meaningful agreement. In the National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD), the types of operation and fracture classification were explored to identify the proportion of "highly improbable" combinations. RESULTS: The records were reviewed for 903 cases. Agreement for the subtypes of extracapsular fracture was poor; most centres achieved no better than "fair" agreement. When the classification was collapsed to a single option for "extracapsular" fracture, only four centres failed to have at least "moderate" agreement. There was only "moderate" agreement for the subtypes of intracapsular fracture, which improved to "substantial" when collapsed to "intracapsular". Subtrochanteric fracture types were well reported with "substantial" agreement. There was near "perfect" agreement for internal fixation procedures. "Perfect" or "substantial" agreement was achieved when the type of arthroplasty surgery was reported at the level of "hemiarthroplasty" and "total hip replacement". When reviewing data submitted to the NHFD, a minimum of 5.2% of cases contained "highly improbable" procedures for the stated fracture classification. CONCLUSION: The complexity of collecting fracture classification data at a national scale compromises the accuracy with which detailed classification systems can be reported. Data around type of surgery performed show similar tendencies. Data capture, reporting, and interpretation in future studies must take this into account.

RESUMO

AIMS: Currently, periprosthetic fractures are excluded from the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) definition of atypical femoral fracture (AFFs). This study aims to report on a series of periprosthetic femoral fractures (PFFs) that otherwise meet the criteria for AFFs. Secondary aims were to identify predictors of periprosthetic atypical femoral fractures (PAFFs) and quantify the complications of treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective case control study of consecutive patients with periprosthetic femoral fractures between 2007 and 2017. Two observers identified 16 PAFF cases (mean age 73.9 years (44 to 88), 14 female patients) and 17 typical periprosthetic fractures in patients on bisphosphonate therapy as controls (mean age 80.7 years (60 to 86, 13 female patients). Univariate and multivariate analysis was performed to identify predictors of PAFF. Management and complications were recorded. RESULTS: Interobserver agreement for the PAFF classification was excellent (kappa = 0.944; p < 0.001). On univariate analysis compared with controls, patients with PAFFs had higher mean body mass indices (28.6 kg/m2 (sd 8.9) vs 21.5 kg/m2 (sd 3.3); p = 0.009), longer durations of bisphosphonate therapy (median 5.5 years (IQR 3.2 to 10.6) vs 2.4 years (IQR 1.0 to 6.4); p = 0.04), and were less likely to be on alendronate (50% vs 94%; p = 0.02) with an indication of secondary osteoporosis (19% vs 0%; p = 0.049). Duration of bisphosphonate therapy was an independent predictor of PAFF on multivariate analysis (R2 = 0.733; p = 0.05). Following primary fracture management, complication rates were higher in PAFFs (9/16, 56%) than controls (5/17, 29%; p = 0.178) with a relative risk of any complication following PAFF of 1.71 (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.77 to 3.8) and of reoperation 2.56 (95% CI 1.3 to 5.2). CONCLUSION: AFFs do occur in association with prostheses. Longer duration of bisphosphonate therapy is an independent predictor of PAFF. Complication rates are higher following PAFFs compared with typical PFFs, particularly of reoperation and infection. Cite this article: Bone Joint J 2019;101-B:1285-1291.

RESUMO

AIMS: There is an increasing demand for hip arthroplasty in China. We aimed to describe trends in in-hospital mortality after this procedure in China and to examine the potential risk factors. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included 210 450 patients undergoing primary hip arthroplasty registered in the Hospital Quality Monitoring System in China between 2013 and 2016. In-hospital mortality after hip arthroplasty and its relation to potential risk factors were assessed using multivariable Poisson regression. RESULTS: During the study period, 626 inpatient deaths occurred within 30 days after hip arthroplasty. Mortality decreased from 2.9% in 2013 to 2.6% in 2016 (p for trend = 0.02). Compared with their counterparts, old age, male sex, and divorced or widowed patients had a higher rate of mortality (all p < 0.05). Risk ratio (RR) for mortality after arthroplasty for fracture was two-fold higher (RR 2.0, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.5 to 2.6) than that for chronic disease. RRs for mortality were 3.3 (95% CI 2.7 to 3.9) and 8.2 (95% CI 6.5 to 10.4) for patients with Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) of 1 to 2 and CCI ≥ 3, respectively, compared with patients with CCI of 0. The rate of mortality varied according to geographical region, the lowest being in the East region (1.8%), followed by Beijing (2.1%), the North (2.9%), South-West (3.6%), South-Central (3.8%), North-East (4.1%), and North-West (5.2%) regions. CONCLUSION: While in-hospital mortality after hip arthroplasty in China appears low and declined during the study period, discrepancies in mortality after this procedure exist according to sociodemographic factors. Healthcare resources should be allocated more to underdeveloped regions to further reduce mortality. Cite this article: Bone Joint J 2019;101-B:1209-1217.

RESUMO

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is characterized by a lack of expression of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) and unfortunately is not associated with good prognosis. Treatment of breast cancer mainly depends on chemotherapy, due to the lack of specifically approved targeted therapies for TNBC. It is of paramount importance to find new therapeutic approaches, as resistance to chemotherapy frequently occurs. Herein, we present clinical studies published within the last five years, in order to reveal possible targeted therapies against TNBC. We aimed to discuss factors against TNBC, such as tyrosine kinase inhibitors, anti-androgens, poly ADP-ribose polymerase-1 (PARP-1) inhibitors, anti-angiogenic factors, immune checkpoints and histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACI). Furthermore, the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway seems to be a promising field for the development of new anti-TNBC targeted therapies. Data from 18 clinical trials with patients suffering from TNBC were summarized and presented descriptively.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Epigenetic abnormalities in microRNAs (miRNAs) have not been analyzed in samples other than pancreaticobiliary tissues in patients with pancreaticobiliary cancer (PBC). To identify miRNAs specific for PBC, the present study analyzed the methylation of tumor-suppressive miRNAs in bile from patients with pancreaticobiliary diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Bile was collected endoscopically or percutaneously from 52 patients with pancreatic cancer, 26 with biliary tract cancer, and 20 with benign pancreaticobiliary diseases. Sequences encoding 16 tumor-suppressive miRNAs were amplified by polymerase chain reaction and sequenced, and their methylation rates were determined. RESULTS: The methylation rates of miR-1247 and miR-200a were significantly higher in patients with pancreatic cancer, and biliary tract cancer than in those with benign diseases, and the methylation rate of miR-200b was significantly higher in patients with pancreatic cancer than in those with benign diseases. CONCLUSION: Methylation of miR-1247, miR-200a, and miR-200b in bile may be useful for distinguishing PBC from benign diseases.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is known as an important risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, surgical outcomes in patients with DM and HCC have not been evaluated in detail. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively studied 177 patients with type 2 DM who underwent curative hepatectomy for HCC. Surgical outcomes after curative hepatectomy and prognostic factors were evaluated among 75 patients with DM and/or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)-related HCC and 102 patients with DM and viral or alcoholic hepatitis (VAH)-related HCC. RESULTS: The 5-year survival rate and 5-year recurrence-free survival rate were significantly higher in the DM and/or NASH-related HCC group (87% and 51%) than in the DM and VAH-related HCC group (68%: p=0.0001 and 26%: p=0.0002). Multivariate analysis showed DM and/or NASH-related HCC to be significant independent prognostic factors for overall survival and recurrence-free survival. CONCLUSION: Patients with DM and/or NASH-related HCC showed more favorable surgical outcomes after hepatectomy in patients with DM and HCC.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Factors influencing fulvestrant efficacy may be useful in selecting the optimal treatment regimen for postmenopausal Japanese women with metastatic/recurrent HR-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated progression-free and overall survival (PFS and OS) in 100 fulvestrant-treated patients according to metastatic site. RESULTS: Median PFS was significantly better in patients with non-visceral (bone and regional metastases; 22.8 months) vs. visceral metastasis (lung, liver, and other organs; 8.2 months; p=0.024), although median OS did not differ (p=0.922). Median PFS in patients with lung metastasis (20.8 months) and non-visceral metastasis (22.8 months) were comparable; patients with liver metastasis (6.1 months) and other organ metastases (3.7 months) had worse prognoses. CONCLUSION: Patients with non-visceral metastases had a better prognosis than those with visceral metastases. Fulvestrant induced a longer PFS in patients with non-visceral metastasis, and also in those with lung metastasis without liver or other organ involvement.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: We evaluated factors associated with mortality among men with breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used the National Cancer Database to identify men with breast cancer and evaluated factors associated with mortality, using a Cox regression model. RESULTS: Black patients experienced an increased risk of death from any cause compared to white patients [hazard ratio (HR)=1.19, 95%CI=1.05-1.37]. Patients with government insurance had a greater risk of death compared to privately insured patients (HR=1.57, 95%CI=1.41-1.75). When compared to patients with an income of >$46,000, those with an income <$30,000 presented an increased risk of death (HR=1.35, 95%CI=1.14-1.60). Finally, patients treated at a comprehensive community cancer program (HR=1.129, 95%CI=1.021-1.248), community cancer program (HR=1.164, 95%CI=1.010-1.343), or integrated network cancer program (HR=1.216; 95%CI=1.056-1.401) experienced elevated risk of death compared to those treated at academic/research-programs. CONCLUSION: Race, insurance, income, education, and facility type are associated with the risk of mortality in male patients with breast cancer.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: This study explored the prognostic significance of the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and use of antibiotics in advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients receiving immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients were enrolled from two referral centers in Taiwan. Clinical benefit was defined as complete response, partial response, or a stable disease for ≥6 months via Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors 1.1. Clinicopathological factors' impact on overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) was analyzed via Cox proportional hazards model. RESULTS: Forty-nine patients were enrolled. The median PFS and OS were 1.8 and 6.1 months, respectively. The median NLR at baseline was 6.40, and 21 patients received antibiotics. Both high NLR and use of antibiotics were associated with inferior PFS (p=0.028 and p<0.001, respectively) and OS (p<0.001 and p<0.001, respectively) in multivariate analysis. CONCLUSION: High NLR and use of antibiotics were associated with inferior survival in advanced ESCC patients receiving ICIs.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: This study aimed to compare the efficacies of cryobiopsy and forceps biopsy for peripheral lung cancer detection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of peripheral lung cancer cases between December 2017 and April 2019 was conducted. Forceps biopsy was performed followed by cryobiopsy using a guide sheath (GS). Diagnostic yields were compared between cryobiopsy and forceps biopsy. RESULTS: A total of 53 lung cancer lesions were evaluated. The diagnostic yields of forceps biopsy and cryobiopsy were 86.8% and 81.1%, respectively. Univariate and multivariate analyses indicated that cryobiopsy with a GS was significantly associated with increased diagnostic yield (odds ratio(OR)=11.6; p=0.044). Among the four patients who tested positive on cryobiopsy and negative on forceps biopsy, one had diffused pulmonary metastases and the others showed intratumoural air bronchograms. CONCLUSION: Cryobiopsy using a GS can significantly increase diagnostic yield and help identify lesions with intratumoural air bronchograms and external wall lesions.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: To evaluate the association between osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the mandible and stenosis of the external carotid artery after radiation therapy (RT) for head and neck cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The computed tomography images of 42 patients (36 men, six women; median age, 64.5 years) treated with RT for head and neck cancer between January 2011 and December 2015 were reviewed. The cross-sectional diameters of the bilateral external carotid arteries were measured on contrast-enhanced images taken after completion of RT. RESULTS: Nine of the 42 included patients (21.4%) developed ORN after a median interval of 34 months from completion of RT. Univariate analysis revealed that external carotid artery diameter ≤ the median diameter was significantly associated with ORN development (p=0.008 and 0.013). In multivariate analysis, left external carotid artery diameter ≤ the median was significantly associated with ORN development (p=0.023). CONCLUSION: External carotid artery stenosis was significantly associated with ORN development.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: This study aimed to identify risk factors for recurrence of patients with stage III colorectal cancer by assessing clinicopathological features. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included 231 patients with stage III colorectal cancer who underwent curative resection between 2006 and 2012 at the Department of Surgery of the Jikei University Hospital, Tokyo, Japan. Clinicopathological data of the patients were retrospectively evaluated. RESULTS: The recurrence rate was 27.7% (64/231) in the study group. The univariate analysis for recurrence identified five risk factors: site of primary tumor (rectal cancer), surgical procedure (open surgery), preoperative serum CEA level (>5 ng/ml), preoperative serum CA19-9 level (>37 U/ml), and number of metastatic lymph nodes (over three metastases). The multivariate analysis for recurrence identified three risk factors: rectal cancer, preoperative serum CEA level >5.0 ng/ml 95%, and more than three metastatic lymph nodes. CONCLUSION: The risk factors for stage III colorectal cancer recurrence seem to be rectal cancer, preoperative serum CEA level >5.0 ng/ml, and more than three metastatic lymph nodes.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: To analyze patterns of care and overall survival for elderly patients with malignant brain tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The database from the National Health Insurance Service was searched January 2008-December 2016. A total of 1,607 patients aged 65-year-old or more with malignant brain tumors who underwent surgery or biopsy were extracted. Treatment performed in 180 days after surgery was divided into no treatment (N=522), radiotherapy (RT) (N=351), chemotherapy (N=69), and chemotherapy plus RT (N=665). Survival was recorded at 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 months after surgery. RESULTS: Patients were divided into groups by age: 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, and ≥80 years. Chemotherapy plus RT was most commonly used in all age groups except those aged 80 years and more. Treatment modality after surgery or biopsy was significantly prognostic (p<0.001) in univariate analysis. CONCLUSION: Adjuvant treatment can be recommended for elderly patients with malignant brain tumors based on data from the National Health Insurance Service.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Liposarcomas (LS) are one of the most common entities within the heterogenous group of soft tissue sarcomas. The aim of this study was to identify prognostic indicators in patients with LS of the extremities and truncal wall. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We analysed the influence of potential prognostic factors on local recurrence-free survival (LRFS) and overall survival (OS) in 181 patients who were suitable for surgical treatment with curative intent. RESULTS: The median follow-up period was 7.1 years. The 5-year LRFS and OS rates were 79.1 and 93.3%. The 5-year OS rate was 94.7% in patients with R0-resected primary tumors and 72.7% in patients with R1/R2-status (p=0.023). In multivariate analysis, only histologic grade was found to be an independent prognostic factor of OS. CONCLUSION: Negative margins were not an independent prognostic factor in our series. Tumor biology reflected by histologic grade dictated the outcome.
