    Full Text Available Os papilomavírus humanos (HPV de alto risco estão fortemente relacionados à etiologia do carcinoma espinocelular (CEC anogenital e suas lesões precursoras. O HPV-16 é o tipo mais freqüente, estando presente em até 87% dos CEC do canal anal HPV-positivo. Apesar de ser relativamente raro, vem sendo cada vez mais diagnosticado, nas últimas décadas, sobretudo em indivíduos do sexo masculino. A incidência é ainda mais elevada nos grupos considerados de risco, particularmente, os homens e as mulheres HIV-positivo e os homens que fazem sexo com homens (HSH. Grande parte das pesquisas direcionadas à infecção anal pelo HPV e sua relação com neoplasia intraepitelial-anal (NIA e com o carcinoma esteve focada nos grupos de risco. Pouco interesse vem sendo destinado à investigação dos homens heterossexuais. Estudos epidemiológicos da prevalência da infecção pelo HPV em homens, mostraram que os heterossexuais masculinos apresentavam infecção anal pelo HPV em até 12%. As Sociedades médicas e os especialistas recomendam o rastreamento dos portadores de imunodepressão e dos HSH com citologia do raspado do canal anal. Entretanto, até o momento, não há recomendação de rastreamento para homens que fazem sexo com mulheres.The oncogenic human papillomaviruses (HPV are straightly associated with anogenital cancer and dysplasia. The HPV-16 is the most common type, isolated in 87% of the HPV-positive anal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC. Despite being a rare tumor, the incidence of SCC has increased in the last decades, especially in males. Incidence is particularly high amongst men who have sex with men (MSM and among HIV infected men and women. For decades anogenital HPV researches have largely focused risk groups. Poor interest was intended to men who have sex with women (MSW. Prevalence studies of HPV infection in MSW have demonstrated that anal infection was identified in as far as 12%. Medical societies and specialists recommend anal

    Full Text Available Squamous anal cell carcinoma frequency has been changing during the last decades. It was a rare disease in the past with 0.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in Denmark before the 60’s and 0.5 per 100,000 in the United States of America (USA in 1973. Currently these figures have risen to a 1.00 / 100,000 ratio in accordance with the public records in the USA. Although the incidence in the general population can still be considered low, regardless of having doubled during the past 30 years, some specific groups in the population seem to have a higher level of risk, with a ratio of 70 ocurrences per each group of 100,000 individuals. The relationship between infections caused by oncogenic types of human papillomavirus and the similarity with cervical squamous cell carcinoma lead us to believe that screening techniques similar to the ones used as from the 40’s aiming the control of the cervical carcinoma, such as Papanicolaou smear (anal cytology and colposcopy (high resolution anoscopy, may be effective on anal cancer prevention in those specific groups, or at least, to its early diagnosis. This article presents the techniques for tracking these early anal cancer lesions justifying them as a Public Health point of view.

    Full Text Available O Papilomavírus humano (HPV é o agente sexualmente transmissível mais comum na região perianal. O vírus provoca lesões clínicas e subclínicas que podem evoluir para carcinoma anal. É descrito o aumento da incidência desse tipo de tumor naqueles que praticam sexo anal; nos portadores, de ambos os sexos, de lesões genitais HPV induzidas; nas pessoas com neoplasias intraepiteliais anais de alto grau, o precursor do carcinoma, com maior incidência nos infectados pelo vírus da imunodeficiência humana (HIV, e com outras causas de supressão imunológica. Outra característica das lesões HPV induzidas é a elevada incidência de recidivas. Daí, a importância do seguimento por longo prazo e da pesquisa de meios terapêuticos para reduzir essa ocorrência. A possibilidade da detecção das lesões precursoras indica que programas padronizados de rastreamento para a prevenção do câncer anal deveriam ser instituídos. Os esfregaços anais para citologia vêm sendo realizados, com eficácia semelhante a das coletas cervicais e a colposcopia anal tem sido indicada para biópsias dirigidas quando a citologia mostrou-se alterada, embora muitos recomendam-na, também, como método de rastreamento. Nesse artigo, descrevemos a padronização da coleta de material para citologia anal e o método de realização da colposcopia anal, bem como a periodicidade com que devem ser repetidos.The human papillomavirus is the most frequent sexually transmitted agent in anorectal area. This virus provokes clinical and sub-clinical lesions that can evolve to anal carcinoma. Its incidence is increasing among those who practice anal receptive sex; in both gender patients with genital HPV induced lesions; in those with high grade anal intra-epithelial neoplasia, anal carcinoma precursor, mainly among HIV infected persons or with other causes of immunodeficiency. Another HPV induced lesions characteristic is their elevated incidence of recurrences. Therefore

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Diabetes mellitus é um problema de saúde pública com elevado ônus social e econômico, cujo diagnóstico é desconhecido em metade dos indivíduos portadores. Em 2001, o Ministério da Saúde realizou a Campanha Nacional para a Detecção do Diabetes Mellitus. Assim, o objetivo do estudo foi estimar o impacto econômico e o rendimento desse rastreamento populacional. MÉTODOS: Baseado no número de rastreados com resultados positivos (glicemia capilar em jejum >100 mg/dl ou fora do jejum >140 mg/dl, foram estimados os prováveis casos novos de diabetes mellitus e construído modelo de decisão analítico. Dados primários e secundários foram utilizados para estimar os custos (em Reais e o rendimento (casos novos de diabetes mellitus detectados do rastreamento com o pressuposto de pagador único. Análises de sensibilidade foram conduzidas para avaliar o efeito de alguns parâmetros nessas estimativas. RESULTADOS: Considerando-se a prevalência de diabetes mellitus não diagnosticado na população-alvo de 4,8%, o número provável de novos casos de diabetes mellitus diagnosticados foi de 518.579. Isso, pressupondo que um terço dos participantes com teste positivo procurou a confirmação (23 casos por 1.000 rastreados. O custo por novo caso de diabetes mellitus diagnosticado a partir desses pressupostos seria de R$89. Em análises de sensibilidade, os resultados foram sensíveis ao percentual dos testes confirmatórios. CONCLUSÕES: Apesar dos expressivos custos com a campanha de rastreamento no Brasil, o rendimento foi comparável a outras ações preventivas e, em termos absolutos, o custo por novo caso de diabetes mellitus detectado foi inferior ao relatado por outros países.OBJECTIVE: Diabetes mellitus is a common disease and costly public health concern and an expressive number of affected individuals have undiagnosed diabetes mellitus.

    Full Text Available CONTEXTO: A depressão é uma importante causa de suicídio em adolescentes. Portanto, são necessários instrumentos adequados para o rastreamento da depressão nessa população. OBJETIVO: Avaliar escalas de depressão como instrumentos de rastreamento para depressão em estudantes brasileiros do ensino médio. MÉTODOS: Estudo transversal. Três escalas (BDI, CES-D, e CRS e um teste para avaliar sintomas psiquiátricos gerais (SRQ foram aplicados individualmente a 503 estudantes do ensino médio com idades entre 15 e 17 anos. Os resultados foram comparados aos obtidos com os critérios de depressão maior do manual diagnóstico e estatístico de transtornos mentais (DSM-IV. RESULTADOS: A prevalência de depressão maior utilizando-se os critérios do DSM-IV foi de 10,9%. Adolescentes com depressão maior apresentaram escores significativamente mais altos (p = 0,001 no SRQ e nas três escalas avaliadas em comparação ao grupo sem depressão. A sensibilidade e a especificidade para identificar depressão pelo BDI, CES-D e CRS foram, respectivamente, 0,77 e 0,70, 0,75 e 0,73 e 0,82 e 0,71 (curva ROC. Os melhores pontos de corte foram 9 para o BDI, 10 para a CRS e 14 para a CES-D. A frequência de sintomas depressivos foi maior em meninas (aproximadamente 2:1. CONCLUSÃO: Esses achados indicam o uso do BDI, da CES-D e da CRS apenas para o rastreamento, ou como uma avaliação sintomática adicional, da depressão em estudantes do ensino médio. A diferença entre meninos e meninas com relação aos escores nas escalas alerta contra o uso dos mesmos valores de corte para ambos os sexos.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Avaliar acurácia de escore clínico (sensibilidade no diagnóstico presuntivo de tuberculose pulmonar em triagem. MÉTODOS: Estudo descritivo-analítico transversal com 1.365 pacientes atendidos no setor de pneumologia em Unidade Básica de Saúde de nível secundário da cidade do Rio de Janeiro, RJ, de 2006 a 2007. Os participantes responderam um questionário padronizado, aplicado por equipe de enfermagem, contendo informações referentes à idade, peso e sintomas clínicos. O resultado presuntivo do diagnóstico de tuberculose pulmonar foi obtido pela soma da pontuação dos dados coletados. Diagnóstico de tuberculose ativa baseou-se nos resultados bacteriológicos e na decisão médica. Foram calculados sensibilidade, especificidade, valores preditivos positivos e negativos para uma prevalência especificada, e intervalos de 95% de confiança para diversos pontos de corte do escore. O desempenho do escore foi avaliado pela curva receiver operating characteristic (ROC. RESULTADOS: Para o diagnóstico de tuberculose, tosse > 1 semana e > 3 semanas mostrou sensibilidade respectivamente de 88,2% (86,2;90,2 e de 61,1% (57,93;64,3, especificidade de 19,2% (16,6;21,8 e 51,3% (48,1;54,5.

    Full Text Available O carcinoma brônquico é, de todos, o de maior letalidade, responsabilizando-se, anualmente, por maior número de óbitos do que aqueles decorrentes do câncer do cólon, mama e próstata juntos. Seguindo seu curso natural, mais de 50% dos pacientes têm metástases a distância e somente 20 a 25% são potencialmente ressecáveis no momento do diagnóstico, com perspectiva de sobrevida em cinco anos de apenas 14%. Os protocolos de rastreamento, baseados em radiografias do tórax e citologia do escarro, realizados há 30 anos com o intuito de estabelecer o diagnóstico precoce, mostraram maior índice de ressecabilidade e melhores taxas de sobrevida, porém sem causar impacto na redução da mortalidade específica. Nos últimos anos, com o advento da tomografia computadorizada helicoidal de baixa dose e de novas técnicas para análise das secreções respiratórias e da mucosa brônquica, com o potencial para identificar casos de câncer de pulmão em fases mais precoces de sua evolução natural, os protocolos de rastreamento voltam a despertar o interesse. Os autores revisam os protocolos de rastreamento realizados no passado, assim como analisam os estudos prospectivos mais recentes e discutem as perspectivas futuras, destacando suas principais limitações, os problemas metodológicos no seu delineamento e principais vieses que comprometem a interpretação dos resultados.Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer.

    Full Text Available The uterine cervix is the most common cancer site for females. Approximately 52,000 new cases occur annually in Latin America, thus the need to improve efficiency and effectiveness of Cervical Cancer Screening Programs (CCSP is mandatory to decrease the unnecessary suffering women must bear. This paper is addressing essential issues to revamp the CCSP as proposed by the Mexican official norm. A general framework for institutionaling CCSP is outlined. Furthermore, strategies to strengthen CCSP performance through managerial strategies and quality assurance activities are described. The focus is on the following activities: 1 improving coverage; 2 implementing smear-taking quality control; 3 improving quality in interpretation of Pap test; 4 guaranteeing treatment for women for whom abnormalities are detected; 5 improving follow-up; 6 development of quality control measures and 7 development of monitoring and epidemiological surveillance information systems. Changes within the screening on cervical cancer may be advocated as new technologies present themselves and shortcomings in the existing program appear. It is crucial that these changes should be measured through careful evaluation in order to tally up potential benefits.O colo uterino é a localização tumoral mais importante em mulheres na América Latina, ocorrendo aproximadamente 52 mil novos casos anualmente na região. Assim, a necessidade de melhorar a eficiência e efetividade dos programas de rastreamento de câncer de colo uterino (PRCC é fundamental para que ocorra o decréscimo do sofrimento desnecessário experimentado por essas mulheres. Este trabalho aborda questões essenciais para revitalizar o PRCC, tal como proposto pela regulamentação oficial no México.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE AND METHODS: Screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms may be useful to decrease mortality related to rupture. We conducted a study to assess the prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysms in southern Brazil and to define risk factors associated with high prevalence of this disorder. The screening was conducted using abdominal ultrasound. Three groups were studied: Group 1 - cardiology clinic patients; Group 2 - individuals with severe ischemic disease and previous coronary surgery, or important lesions on cardiac catheterism; Group 3 - individuals without cardiac disease selected from the general population. All individuals were male and older than 54 years of age. The ultrasonographic diagnosis of aneurysm was based on an anteroposterior abdominal aorta diameter of 3 cm, or on an abdominal aorta diameter 0.5 cm greater than that of the supra-renal aorta. RESULTS: A total of 2.281 people were screened for abdominal aortic aneurysms in all groups: Group 1 - 768 individuals, Group 2 - 501 individuals, and Group 3 - 1012 individuals. The prevalence of aneurysms was 4.3%, 6.8% and 1.7%, respectively. Age and cigarette smoking were significantly associated with increased prevalence of aneurysms, as was the diagnosis of peripheral artery disease. DISCUSSION: We concluded that screening may be an important tool to prevent the mortality associated with abdominal aortic aneurysms surgery. Additionally, the cost of screening can be decreased if only individuals presenting significant risk factors, such as coronary and peripheral artery disease, smokers and relatives of aneurysm patients, are examined.OBJETIVO E MÉTODOS: O rastreamento de aneurisma da aorta abdominal infra-renal é importante pois pode diminuir a mortalidade relacionada à ruptura.

Foi construído modelo de Markov para estimar a relação de custo-efetividade incremental do NMPOA em comparação à situação atual de atenção ao câncer de mama no SUS, em coorte hipotética de mulheres de 40-69 anos com risco de desenvolver câncer de mama. Os parâmetros foram coletados do NMPOA e da literatura nacional. Na estratégia NMPOA, a efetividade foi modelada levando-se em conta a real adesão da população participante do rastreamento. A efetividade foi medida em anos de vida ajustados para qualidade (QALY. A relação de custoefetividade incremental no caso base foi de R$ 13.426,00 por QALY. Esse resultado foi pouco sensível à variação dos principais parâmetros do modelo nas análises de sensibilidade. Considerando o limiar usualmente sugerido como bastante atrativo do ponto de vista econômico no Brasil, o rastreamento do câncer de mama nos moldes do NMPOA é custo-efetivo em cidades com alta incidência deste tipo de câncer.

    Full Text Available Acredita-se que a neoplasia intraepitelial anal (NIA, provocada pelo HPV, seja a lesão precursora do carcinoma anal. Segundo a literatura, são encontradas entre 11% e 52% dos homens infectados pelo HIV, entre 6% a 20% dos homens e 1% a 2,8% das mulheres sem essa infecção. Entre 8,5% e 13% das NIA de alto grau evoluirão para carcinoma invasivo, indicando a necessidade do rastreamento e do seguimento desses doentes para prevenção. Não há tratamento satisfatório com baixos índices de morbidez e a recidiva é comum. Em geral, as formas de tratamento podem de ser divididas em tópicas, entre elas, ácido tricloroacético, podofilina, podofilotoxina, imiquimod, terapia fotodinâmica, e ablativas, ou seja, excisão cirúrgica, ablação pelo LASER, coagulação pelo infravermelho e eletrofulguração. Há, ainda, os que consideram aceitável a conduta expectante. O tratamento tópico se justifica pelo caráter multifocal da lesão e os ablativos têm taxas de complicação e recidiva muito semelhantes. De qualquer forma, doentes com qualquer anormalidade histológica necessitam de seguimento adequado, principalmente com colposcopia e citologia anal.Anal intra-epithelial neoplasia (AIN, provoked by HPV, is considered as an anal cancer precursor. Some articles noticed that it occurred among 11% and 52% of men who have sex with men (MSM infected with HIV and, among seronegatives, from 6% to 20% of men and from 1% to 2.8% of women. From 8.5% to 13% of high grade AIN will evolve to invasive carcinoma, needing follow-up and screening for prevention. There is no satisfactory treatment with low morbidity and recurrence is frequent. There are two main forms of treatment: topics (trichloroacetic acid, podophylin, podophylotoxin, imiquimod, photodynamic therapy and ablatives (chirurgical excision, LASER, infrared, eletrocautery.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: avaliar o desempenho da dosagem de microalbuminúria como método para rastreamento de pré-eclampsia MÉTODOS: estudo prospectivo longitudinal no qual foram incluídas 45 grávidas diabéticas. Foi quantificada a microalbuminúria em três períodos distintos da gravidez: antes da 18ª semana, entre a 18ª e a 24ª semana e entre a 32ª e a 36ª semana de gravidez. Todas as pacientes freqüentaram o pré-natal entre janeiro de 2000 e dezembro de 2001. O ensaio de microalbuminúria/creatinina é método quantitativo para medir baixas concentrações de albumina, creatinina e a relação albumina/creatinina na urina. Como critério indicativo de dano renal incipiente e risco para pré-eclâmpsia foi empregada a relação albumina/creatinina maior que 16 mg/g. A sensibilidade, especificidade, valor preditivo positivo e valor preditivo negativo da relação albumina/creatinina foram calculados para predizer a ocorrência ou ausência de pré-eclâmpsia. RESULTADOS: do total de pacientes, 17% apresentaram pré-eclâmpsia. A sensibilidade da relação albumina/creatinina foi crescente de 12,5% com 18 semanas para 25% entre 18 e 24 semanas e 87% após a 32ª semana. Em contraste, a especificidade teve valor decrescente de 97 para 89 e 83%, respectivamente. O valor preditivo positivo foi relativamente baixo, com valores de 50, 33 e 53% nos três diferentes períodos de avaliação. De outro modo, o valor preditivo negativo foi elevado nas três faixas de idade gestacional, com valores de 83, 84 e 96%. CONCLUSÕES: a quantificação aleatória da microalbuminúria pôde predizer corretamente a não ocorrência de pré-eclâmpsia em grávidas diabéticas, sendo pouco eficiente para a identificação correta das pacientes que evoluíram com pré-eclâmpsia.PURPOSE: the aim of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of microalbuminuria to predict preeclampsia.

Os resultados analíticos serão considerados restritos se não houver um programa definido de controle de qualidade analítico. O presente trabalho propõe modelos esquemáticos para a avaliação da qualidade dos dados nacionais de fibra alimentar. A fibra alimentar foi escolhida, como um modelo, com o propósito de se aplicar os critérios do USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture empregados na avaliação do selênio, cobre e de carotenóides. Esta escolha foi baseada na escassez de informações desse nutriente e pela importância da fibra alimentar na prevenção de doenças crônico-degenerativas. Para a avaliação da qualidade dos dados foram consideradas cinco categorias: número de amostras, plano de amostragem, tomada de amostra, método analítico e controle de qualidade analítica. Estes modelos foram utilizados na avaliação da qualidade das determinações de fibra alimentar de 180 alimentos. O resultado obtido foi de 29% com código A e B (considerável e razoável confiança e 68% com código C (reduzida confiança. Com a determinação da qualidade dos dados, foi possível estabelecer quais os alimentos que constituem prioridades de análise, que são aqueles nos quais ainda não foi determinada a fração fibra alimentar, e aqueles com código de confiança C.

    Full Text Available La crisis económica actual ha impulsado a las empresas en todo el mundo a disminuir sus costos para mantenerse rentables, para apoyar este esfuerzo se propone un modelo analítico para la determinación del lote óptimo de producción basado en el reconocido modelo EOQ (Economic Order Quantity. La valía de este modelo radica en que incluye diversas partidas de costo, muchas de las cuales no se habían considerado previamente, lo que permite dar soluciones más próximas a los óptimos reales. De particular interés son dos características que incorpora el modelo, la incorporación del “Índice Logístico” publicado por primera vez en la Revista Dyna Colombia, 179 [1] y la posibilidad de trabajar con tiempos variables de producción, ambos aspectos nunca considerados en modelos similares. Además, para facilitar la aplicación del modelo en diversas empresas, incluyendo Pymes, se muestran dos simplificaciones del mismo y un problema resuelto.

    Anal canal epidermoid carcinomas represent 1.2% of digestive cancers and 6% of ano-rectal cancers. For localized diseases, the treatment is based on radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy (5-FU and cisplatin or mitomycin), according to tumour and nodal extension. The recommended treatment dose is 45 Gy in the anal canal, the mesorectum, para-rectal lymph nodes, and inguinal lymph nodes. An additional dose of 15 to 20 Gy is delivered in the initial tumour for good responders. Salvage surgery is necessary in case of poor response. The organs at risk to be considered are bladder, femur heads, small intestine and vulva. The objective of this work is to summarize the epidemiological and radio-anatomic and prognostic characteristics of this tumour. The conformal radiotherapy technique is illustrated by a case report.

    Full Text Available Después de una introducción en la que se esbozan los métodos analíticos utilizados en la Geotecnica Aplicada y se analizan las dificultades inherentes a cada método, se cuestiona por qué la Geomecánica no ha llegado a las minas tan rápido como se hubiera querido. En efecto estas obras, sui generis por su actividad, se encuentran en nuestro país más al abrigo de la experiencia adquirida in situ que a las aplicaciones de los desarrollos geomecánicos logrados en otros países. Posiblemente el desconocimiento o quizás la falta de credibilidad en estos logros, es la explicación de la ausencia casi total en la utilización de aquellos métodos en nuestro medio. Siendo la determinación de los datos de entrada el mayor problema práctico para llevar a buen término cualquiera de los métodos analíticos. el texto recomienda una metodología que permite cuantificar aquellos parámetros, y en especial las características geomecánicas de esfuerzo, deformación y resistencia de las masas rocosas.

    Full Text Available Este examen crítico, ubicado en el trabajo del psicólogo con el trabajador de hospital, propone pensar la práctica de la psicología en la salud. La construcción de esta vía se recurrirá a una estrategia de la intercesión entre conceptos / autores y la práctica. Con el objetivo de generar movimientos y ampliaciones, buscando la producción de significados y la invención de posibilidades para el psicólogo todos los días con el trabajador del hospital, este trabajo instiga el tejido de redes o la ampliación de las posibilidades de las percepciones, interpretaciones y declaraciones sobre maneras de trabajo vivo. Las preguntas y dilemas planteados en el trabajo diario, junto con las burlas que resultan las trayectorias de estudio y las discusiones teóricas sobre distintos espacios académicos y profesionales, se utilizan como disparadores para ser el pensamiento en conceptos desarrollados por los autores mencionados en este documento. La práctica propuesta como un dispositivo analítico, se presenta aquí de manera que los conceptos actúan como intercesores entre el psicoanálisis y la esquizo-análisis y las prácticas y las formas cotidianas que viven las instituciones. Analítica por proponerse hacer por medio de un hacer genealógico, que entra en vigor como un trabajador de la salud, la exploración de las prácticas y de los juegos de verdad, acompañar los movimientos de fijación y ruptura, las continuidades y discontinuidades en la superficie misma de los hechos.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Los incrementos en la industrialización, la urbanización y la contaminación, amenazan la producción de alimentos y su calidad. En nuestro país los huertos orgánicos (organopónicos continúan representado una alternativa para satisfacer necesidades alimentarías debido a los ciclos cortos de cultivo y el no empleo de sustancias químicas (abonos y fertilizantes. Para corroborar la sanidad de los productos que se derivan de esos huertos se han desarrollado procedimientos de análisis. Muchos de ellos hacen uso de la calcinación de las muestras a analizar como paso previo al ataque con reactivos químicos. Con este modo de proceder el gasto energético es elevado y se corre el riesgo de perder elementos que son volátiles. Como alternativa, en este trabajo se propone un procedimiento analítico que utiliza la sonicación con ultrasonido como método de tratamiento de las muestras. Mediante un diseño completamente anidado se evaluó la precisión, el sesgo y el límite de detección del procedimiento propuesto. Los resultados obtenidos indican que es adecuado para determinar plomo, cadmio, níquel, cobre y manganeso en muestras de espinaca y zanahoria provenientes de organopónicos urbanos.

    >10 mm described by conventional colonoscopy and only 6 of the 10 small polyps identified at conventional colonoscopy were detected by computed tomographic colonography. The histological analysis of resected lesions revealed 12 tubular adenomas, 6 hyperplastic polyps and 1 colonic tubulo-villous adenoma with an adenocarcinoma focus. CONCLUSION: The authors present the first reports of computed tomographic colonography in the screening of colorectal polyps in acromegalic patients. In this study, computed tomographic colonography was performed without complications and a complete and safe colorectal evaluation was possible in all acromegalic patients. Moreover, computed tomographic colonography presented good sensitivity, specificity and accuracy for the identification of acromegalic patients with polyps of any size and better results in the diagnosis of large polyps, when they were compared to small polypoid lesions.CONTEXTO: Pacientes com acromegalia apresentam maiores chances de desenvolver pólipo e câncer colorretal e, sendo considerados integrantes do grupo de risco, necessitam serem submetidos aos exames de rastreamento. Por sua vez, na acromegalia, o maior comprimento do cólon e a formação de alças intestinais complexas podem prever maiores dificuldades técnicas e aumentar o risco em potencial de complicações durante o exame de colonoscopia convencional. A colonografia tomográfica computadorizada, também denominada colonoscopia virtual, é uma tecnologia inovadora e segura, que está revolucionando o diagnóstico das neoplasias do cólon e do reto. OBJETIVO: Analisar o desempenho da colonografia tomográfica computadorizada no rastreamento de pólipos colorretais em pacientes com acromegalia. Métodos - Estudo prospectivo com 21 pacientes acromegálicos, 12 do sexo masculino e 9 do sexo feminino, idade média de 49 anos, assintomáticos, submetidos a colonografia tomográfica computadorizada e colonoscopia convencional.

    Full Text Available A discussão sobre a natureza das imagens psíquicas ocorre desde os primórdios da Psicologia. Nas últimas décadas, o tema vem ganhando destaque em todas as abordagens, notadamente em modalidades clínicas que se apóiam predominantemente no discurso imagético. Para a Psicologia Analítica, a questão da imagem tem sido tema de diversas discussões, destacando-se três direcionamentos teórico-práticos - clássico, desenvolvimentista e arquetípico -, que vão determinar diferentes perspectivas sobre a questão. Observa-se uma tendência em abordar a imagem a partir de sua própria fenomenologia, em detrimento de sua interpretação e, apesar da importância das imagens para o contexto clínico, o tema está praticamente ausente dos programas de graduação em Psicologia e da própria estruturação das teorias psicológicas. Nesse sentido, algumas propostas são discutidas a título de possibilidades de aprendizado e de teorização no campo da imagem. Como a relação dialética entre teoria e prática é necessária para que a teoria permaneça atualizada e vitalmente ligada à realidade sociocultural contemporânea, por meio de dados obtidos em entrevistas com psicoterapeutas brasileiros, buscou-se identificar contribuições para a discussão sobre as imagens no contexto clínico.

    Full Text Available Neste artigo pretende-se mostrar que, para Winnicott, o fundamento do processo de simbolização está na atividade que caracteriza a expansão da área dos fenômenos transicionais. Enquanto para Klein, a relação com objetos que são símbolos de outros objetos ocorre como defesa contra a angústia derivada das relações objetais, para Winnicott, esta relação deriva da atividade do brincar e da criatividade a ela associada. Essa diferença caracteriza a maneira como cada um desses autores concebe a entrada do homem na vida cultural, e como eles concebem os objetivos do método de tratamento psicanalítico.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: A sensibilidade da citologia anal varia amplamente na literatura, entre 45% e 98%, o que pode ocorrer devido à falta de padronização quanto à distância que a escova deve ser introduzida no canal anal. Desta forma, nosso objetivo foi investigar se o local de coleta influencia no resultado desse exame. MÉTODOS: Colhemos amostras com escova introduzida 4 cm no canal anal de 114 doentes (Grupo A e 2 cm em outros 94 pacientes (Grupo B, antes do exame proctológico. Realizamos cinco rotações com a escova antes de retirá-la e a esfregar sobre lâmina de vidro, posteriormente submetida ao exame citopatológico padrão. Todos os doentes são HIV-positivo. Submetemos os resultados à avaliação estatística. RESULTADOS: No Grupo A, 39 doentes possuíam condilomas no canal anal e a citologia foi positiva em 29 deles (74,3%. Também observamos alterações citológicas em 30 de 75 doentes (40% sem lesões clínicas no canal anal. No Grupo B, havia 54 doentes com condilomas no canal anal e em 13 (24,1% houve confirmação citológica. Em 40 outros, sem lesões clínicas pelo HPV, notamos que em nove (22,5% havia anormalidades citológicas. Os testes estatísticos revelaram que os exames realizados nos doentes do Grupo A foram mais eficientes. CONCLUSÃO: Os espécimes coletados com escovas inseridas mais profundamente no canal anal melhoraram a eficácia do exame.OBJECTIVE: In literature, sensitivity of Pap smears ranges widely from 45 to 98%.

    Full Text Available Objetivo: estudar o método para medida da translucência nucal (TN e a sua aplicabilidade no rastreamento de anomalias cromossômicas entre a 10feminine e a 14feminine semanas de gestação. Métodos: foram estudados 1152 fetos consecutivamente. Em 124 casos realizou-se estudo citogenético no material obtido por meio da biópsia de vilosidade coriônica ou da amniocentese e em 1028 o resultado teve como base o fenótipo do recém-nascido. Todos os fetos foram submetidos, além da ultra-sonografia de rotina, à medida da TN. Na análise estatística foram utilizados os testes paramétrico t de Student e análise de variância. Posteriormente, calcularam-se: sensibilidade, especificidade, valor preditivo positivo e negativo, probabilidade de falso-positivo e razões de probabilidades. Resultados: foram diagnosticados 23 casos de anomalias cromossômicas na população estudada. Dentre esses, a medida da TN foi maior que o percentil 95 em 16 (sensibilidade de 69,5%. No grupo de fetos normais (1129 casos a medida da TN foi maior que o percentil 95 em 41 avaliações (especificidade de 96,3%, valor preditivo positivo e negativo de 28,0% e 99,3%, respectivamente, taxa de falso-positvo de 3,7% e razão de probabilidade de 19,1. Conclusão: nossos resultados sugerem que a presença de anomalias cromossômicas pode ser fortemente suspeitada quando existir aumento da TN. Depreende-se que basta a análise quantitativa da medida da TN para categorizar o risco de anomalias cromossômicas no primeiro trimestre. Portanto, ainda que seja necessário treinamento e habilidade do operador, trata-se de método de aplicabilidade clínica.

    Full Text Available Os dados sobre violência contra o idoso são escassos no Brasil. Para estudos adequados sobre a magnitude, fatores de risco e cuidados às vítimas, é necessária documentação sistemática e acurada. Este artigo revisou os instrumentos de rastreamento e avaliação de violência no idoso visando examinar o progresso no contexto internacional e brasileiro. Utilizando as bases de dados MEDLINE, PsycINFO, LILACS, CANE, OVIDs citations e livros de referência, realizou-se uma revisão sistemática da literatura para a seleção dos instrumentos. Fez-se, também, um escrutínio dos estudos de psicometria e utilização dos instrumentos, aplicando-se critérios para avaliar a qualidade dos estudos. Dos dezessete instrumentos encontrados, somente a Conflicts Tactics Scale foi adaptada para o Brasil, ainda que para uso em um grupo etário mais jovem. Alguns outros com boas características psicométricas também foram encontrados, como o Caregiver Abuse Screen, Elder Abuse Assessment Tool, Hwalek Sengstok Abuse Screening Test, Indicators of Abuse Screen, Qualcare scale e Vulnerability to Abuse Screening Scale. Ainda assim, de forma geral, há lacunas importantes nos processos de concepção, validação e adaptação desses instrumentos no Brasil e no exterior.

    Full Text Available A conceptual and analytical framework to assess ecological integrity at a landscape level. A concep tual and methodological approach for the ecological integrity analysis at landscape level is presented. The aim is providing a tool for land planning and nature conservation. With this purpose the meaning of integrity and related concepts are discussed, and a model to evaluate landscape integrity by a comprehensive scheme is proposed. The first index is based in metrics of landscape ecology theory (connectivity, cover of both conservation areas and human managed land, etc. to evaluate the different ecosystem fragments pattern. The second one, an ecosystems integrity index, is focused to evaluate remnants with a structure close to maturity and evaluates the mathematical distance to a reference hypothetical composition. Finally, the agricultural area is evaluated by a coherence index, with emphasis in ecological processes but also including the natural structures with conservation functions. These indexes are combined in a model that facilitates the joint consideration of their values and the comparison with theoretical scenarios. The model allows us to develop a concurrent management of relevant variables that usually are associated to different environmental qualities. Because of its characteristics and the intermediate scale of application, the model constitutes an important tool for matching ecosystem integrity and land planning. Both are actions and concept and relevant for nature conservation and landscape management, but in general independently considered.El trabajo constituye una aproximación conceptual y metodológica para el análisis de la integridad ecológica, como instrumento aplicable a la planificación del territorio y la conservación de la naturaleza a escala de paisaje.

Seus portadores apresentam pior qualidade de vida, maior número de detenções e problemas legais, e utilizam os serviços de saúde com maior freqüência quando comparados a indivíduos não acometidos. Apesar do crescimento da violência urbana no Brasil, ainda não dispomos de nenhum instrumento adaptado para nossa língua que seja capaz de rastrear o TEPT. Este artigo pretende traduzir, adaptar e avaliar a aplicabilidade da versão em português da Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Checklist - Civilian Version (PCL-C, uma escala auto-aplicável amplamente utilizada em todo o mundo para rastreamento do transtorno do estresse pós-traumático. MÉTODOS: A comprovação da equivalência semântica da versão em português da PCL-C foi feita através de quatro etapas: tradução; retradução; apreciação formal de equivalência e adaptação; e interlocução com a população-alvo. RESULTADOS: Foi criada uma versão em português da PCL-C que manteve o significado semântico da versão original e mostrou-se de fácil compreensão e aplicabilidade. DISCUSSÃO: A PCL-C foi escolhida para este estudo por ser um instrumento amplamente utilizado em países de língua inglesa e por possuir outras utilidades além do rastreamento do TEPT. A interlocução com a população-alvo, feita com um número relativamente pequeno de indivíduos (n = 21, mostrou que alguns participantes entenderam o termo "estresse" como uma rotina de vida cansativa. CONCLUSÃO: Uma vez obtida a equivalência semântica da versão em português da PCL-C, estudos posteriores deverão determinar suas características psicométricas para a população brasileira.INTRODUCCÍON: El trastorno de estrés postraumático (TEPT es bastante común, afectando del 2 al 5% de la población en algunos países.

    Full Text Available O autor descreve as relações entre a psicanálise e a cultura, mais precisamente a tendência ao imediatismo que a cultura atual instaura frente à idéia de processo. Diante das exigências provenientes da cultura (tempo e dinheiro, tempo e eficácia, é possível que a psicanálise se desvincule dela? E, se o faz, não estaria ajudando a gerar as terapias alternativas? Acredita que a nova crise que a psicanálise atravessa atualmente obedece às dificuldades e tentativas de dar conta dos efeitos da cultura, em uma sociedade consumista que aboliu o valor da palavra e já não tem tempo para pensar nem para pensar-se. Para isso, o autor acredita que é necessário repensar a psicanálise, não só em torno da noção de processo, mas também do que ele denominou ato analítico. Faz reflexões sobre o analisado e o analista de hoje, e também faz considerações metapsicológicas e técnicas referentes ao conceito de ato analítico, junto à idéia de processo. Com relação ao primeiro aspecto, o autor acredita que o analisado de hoje não "cumpre" com as expectativa clássicas da técnica. Quanto ao segundo, pensa que seja possível que a continuação destes atos analíticos se transforme em um processo analítico: quando um ato analítico possibilita o descobrimento de uma falsa ligação, a correção de um deslocamento temporal e de pessoa, estará estimulando, no sujeito que sofre, o interesse sobre seu próprio funcionamento psíquico. Conclui dizendo que o problema da cura analítica com relação às exigências da cultura atual é definido em um ponto essencial: a psicanálise deve montar um enquadramento suficientemente amplo para que a força transformadora da pulsão encontre sua representação.El autor describe las relaciones entre el psicoanálisis y la cultura, más precisamente la tendencia a la inmediatez que la cultura actual instala frente a la idea de proceso.

    Full Text Available Las transformaciones socioeconómicas que caracterizan el final del siglo XX y los inicios del XXI plantean importantes retos a los sistemas de salud, especialmente en las sociedades occidentales, con sistemas altamente tecnificados y una población cuya esperanza de vida aumenta de forma progresiva en un escenario de permanente esfuerzo de contención del gasto sanitario. La incorporación de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación en la sanidad, la «e-Salud», ha generado enormes expectativas como instrumento para hacer frente a esos retos. La telemedicina ha sido una de las experiencias pioneras, pero a pesar de su temprano inicio y de los esfuerzos invertidos, su extensión definitiva sigue siendo difícil y cuestionada. La mayoría de los proyectos no van más allá de la fase inicial de viabilidad y luego quedan abandonados. El modelo tradicional de evaluación de las tecnologías médicas explica este hecho a partir de la dificultad de obtener la evidencia necesaria para avalar una adopción generalizada de la telemedicina, como consecuencia de los problemas que supone la aplicación de la metodología habitual de los estudios de eficacia clínica y coste-efectividad. En los últimos años ha surgido una aproximación analítica diferente, que mantiene que la consolidación o no de los proyectos de telemedicina será el resultado de la interacción de la tecnología y el entorno en que se aplica, y no sólo de sus resultados clínicos, lo que apunta la necesidad de profundizar en el conocimiento empírico de esos procesos de interacción para poder avanzar en la extensión de la telemedicina.Socioeconomic transformations at the end of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twentyfirst century pose major challenges to health systems, particularly to western societies with high technological systems and an aging population, in a political context of health expense reduction.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a sintomatologia depressiva em mulheres climatéricas com a escala de depressão CES-D (Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale, do National Institute of Mental Health (EUA. MÉTODO: Estudo transversal com 151 mulheres entre 40 e 65 anos de idade, usuárias de serviço de ginecologia geral em unidade de atenção básica à saúde no Rio de Janeiro. Aplicou-se a escala CES-D e um questionário estruturado para a obtenção de dados sociodemográficos, clínicos e ginecológicos. O nível de corte > 15 pontos na CES-D foi considerado como indicativo de quadro depressivo. RESULTADOS: A média de pontuação da amostra foi de 9,2 pontos (desvio padrão = 9,0. Os itens mais pontuados da escala foram relativos à insônia, tristeza e desânimo. Não houve associação significativa entre os escores e o período climatérico, características sociodemográficas, clínicas ou ginecológicas, exceto para as mulheres com presença de sintomas psíquicos, histórico depressivo pregresso e uso atual de antidepressivos (p = 0,000. Entre as 32 mulheres (21% com pontuação > 15 na CES-D, 72% referiram episódio depressivo pregresso. Dentre as participantes sem histórico depressivo, as perimenopáusicas apresentaram escores > 15 com maior freqüência. CONCLUSÃO: Essa casuística, oriunda de serviço não-especializado em menopausa ou saúde mental, revelou baixas pontuações médias na escala de sintomas depressivos CES-D, e o item insônia foi o mais pontuado. O histórico de depressão foi fator de associação com a alta pontuação na escala, mas não a fase climatérica em que a mulher se encontrava. A maior freqüência de pontuação acima do nível de corte nas mulheres sem histórico depressivo pregresso que estavam na perimenopausa sugere a maior vulnerabilidade, nessa fase, a episódios depressivos novos.INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to evaluate depressive symptoms in

    McCutcheon, Tonna

    2009-01-01

    Anal condyloma acuminatum is a human papillomavirus (HPV) that affects the mucosa and skin of the anorectum and genitalia. Anal condyloma acuminatum is the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted disease in the United States. To date, there are more than 100 HPV types, with HPV-6, HPV-10, and HPV-11 predominately found in the anogenital region and causing approximately 90% of genital warts. Risk factors for anal condyloma acuminatum include multiple sex partners, early coital age, anal intercourse, and immunosuppression. Transmission occurs by way of skin-to-skin contact through sexual intercourse, oral sex, anal sex, or other contact involving the genital area. The virus may remain latent for months to years until specific mechanisms cause production of viral DNA, leading to the presentation of anal condyloma acuminatum.Patients with anal condyloma acuminatum may be asymptomatic or present with presence of painless bumps, itching, and discharge or bleeding. It is not uncommon to have involvement of more than one area, and multiple lesions may also be present and extend into the anal canal or rectum. To date, there is no serologic testing or culture to detect anal condyloma acuminatum; therefore, diagnosis is made clinically or by detection of HPV DNA. Multiple factors determine the choice of treatment, which may range from patient-applied medications to surgical intervention. Despite treatment choice, recurrence rates are high, indicating the importance of patient education on prevention of HPV infection and reinfection. Unfortunately, at this time, no cure exists for anal condyloma acuminatum; however, recently Gardasil and Cervarix (in Australia only) vaccines have become available and are showing promising results.

Foi construído um modelo markoviano, numa uma coorte hipotética de 100 mil mulheres com rastreamento bianual, cuja linha de base é a história natural da doença. Modelaram-se quatro cenários distintos: (1 a história natural do câncer de mama como linha de base; (2 mamografia com filme convencional; (3 mamografia digital e (4 e ressonância magnética. Os custos dos cenários modelados variaram desde R$ 194.216,68 para a história natural, até R$ 48.614.338,31 para o rastreamento com ressonância magnética. As diferenças de efetividade entre as intervenções variaram de 300 até 78.000 anos de vida ganhos, na coorte de 100 mil mulheres. Em relação à Razão de Custo-Efetividade Incremental, em termos de custo por ano de vida ganhos, a estratégia do rastreamento mamográfico convencional produziu um ano extra por R$ 13.573,07. A Razão de Custo Efetividade Incremental (ICER da ressonância magnética foi de R$ 2.904.328,88 em relação ao não rastreamento.

    Full Text Available Foram submetidas à pesquisa de coliformes fecais, utilizando-se a técnica do número mais provável (NMP/g, 168 amostras de variedades de queijo Minas (20 frescal, 48 canastra e 100 padronizado coletadas em Belo Horizonte. Para a comparação de diferentes ensaios em temperatura elevada, utilizou-se o caldo EC isoladamente, e caldos EC e triptofano em paralelo. Visando à pesquisa de indol foi realizado ensaio para confirmação de produção de beta-D-glucuronidase e indol em caldo fluorocult lauril sulfato. Os resultados demonstraram não haver diferença estatística significativa entre as três metodologias utilizadas para a pesquisa de coliformes fecais, considerando os índices de aceitação definidos pelos padrões legais de inspeção de queijo Minas. A facilidade de execução do ensaio da beta-D-glucuronidase em caldo fluorocult lauril sulfato, associada à confiabilidade dos resultados e demanda de tempo (redução de 96 para até 48h, permitem sugeri-lo como método de escolha para enumeração de coliformes em queijo Minas.

    Full Text Available Três métodos analíticos para a estimativa do conteúdo de lignina na parede celular, em diferentes frações vegetais, de sete espécies forrageiras, foram comparados. Os métodos empregados foram: lignina em detergente ácido (LDA, lignina permanganato de potássio e lignina solúvel em brometo de acetila (LSBA. Para o método espectrofotométrico (LSBA, foi utilizado como padrão de referência a lignina extraída da planta através do próprio reagente brometo de acetila. Não houve concordância entre os três métodos, sendo que, no geral, o método da LSBA mostrou valores mais elevados que os outros dois métodos e o método da LDA, menores valores. Na maioria das amostras, a concentração de lignina foi superior para a parede celular oriunda de planta madura em relação àquela proveniente de planta jovem, assim como o teor de lignina foi maior para a fração colmo em relação à fração folha. As leguminosas tenderam a apresentar teores mais elevados de lignina pelos métodos gravimétricos que as gramíneas, independentemente do estádio de maturidade. Entretanto, essa tendência não foi observada para o método LSBA, particularmente no estádio maduro. Preparações de parede celular foram fermentadas in vitro e os dados correlacionados com os teores de lignina obtidos por intermédio dos três métodos. O método LSBA exibiu os menores coeficientes de correlação, para a maioria das amostras, sugerindo que este método deve ser melhor avaliado.

    1998-01-01

    Full Text Available O beta-caroteno sintético pode ser adicionado tecnologicamente ao macarrão na forma de solução oleosa, emulsões dispersíveis em água ou sob a forma de esferas coloidais, com a finalidade de melhorar a sua cor e valor vitamínico. Todavia, a inexistência de uma metodologia confiável e especificamente testada para a extração e dosagem do beta-caroteno em macarrão enriquecido dificulta a avaliação da possível relevância nutricional da medida. O presente trabalho compara dois métodos de extração para produtos secos (LIVINGSTON, 1986 [método I] e RITTER & PURCELL, 1981 [método II] e um para verduras e frutas (RODRIGUEZ-AMAYA et al., 1976 [método III], quanto à eficiência de extração do beta-caroteno no macarrão cru e cozido. A matéria-prima utilizada foi um lote de macarrão produzido com quantidade conhecida de beta-caroteno, na forma de suspensão oleosa a 30%. Os resultados mostraram uma taxa de recuperação para beta-caroteno de 89 e 84% pelos métodos III e I, respectivamente, enquanto que o método II apresentou recuperação de apenas 44%. Conclue-se que, tanto os métodos I e III podem ser usados para quantificar o beta-caroteno em macarrão enriquecido. Por outro lado, a separação dos produtos de degradação do caroteno permite calcular o valor vitamínico real do macarrão cru e cozido. A superestimação dos valores vitamínicos, quando tais produtos não foram excluídos, foi de 24% para o macarrão cru e 25% para o cozido.

    Full Text Available Cervical cancer screening remains a challenge in developing countries due to a complex array of problems. This paper aimed to describe the experience with organization of cervical cancer screening in three districts of Campinas and the surrounding region in São Paulo State, Brazil, and to report the resulting data. The program was organized in a pyramid format, and the health care hierarchy was defined according to the complexity and total number of medical procedures. Screening has been extended currently to 88 municipalities, of which 51 are equipped with colposcopy and eight have facilities for treating advanced cervical cancer. The standardized incidence rate for cervical cancer in Campinas was 14.2/100,000 women per year in 1993-1995, and the standardized mortality rate per district ranged from 2.7 to 3.0 per 100,000 women in 1997-1998. This project has clearly shown that hierarchical and decentralized organization of health procedures is a necessary condition for achieving the goals of an effective cervical cancer screening program.O programa de rastreamento do câncer do colo uterino ainda é um desafio para os países em desenvolvimento devido a uma série complexa de problemas.

No entanto, tais técnicas são destrutivas e de difícil operacionalidade, pois exigem complicados procedimentos de extração para isolar os componentes da tinta antes da realização dos exames. Nesse contexto, a Espectroscopia Raman tem se mostrado uma técnica promissora e bastante adequada, já que oferece, de modo não destrutivo, a direta identificação e caracterização das tintas encontradas na própria superfície do papel. Assim sendo, este trabalho utiliza-se da Espectroscopia Raman, inicialmente, para identificar e diferenciar tintas de caneta, sendo que uma atenção especial foi dada às tintas de tonalidade preta, as quais são difíceis de serem distinguidas pelas técnicas atuais. Posteriormente, foram selecionados e analisados alguns cruzamentos entre as tintas que apresentaram espectros distintos, ou seja, aquelas tintas que possuem diferentes composições químicas, com o objetivo de identificar a sequência cronológica dos lançamentos. O método baseia-se num tratamento matemático simples dos espectros Raman, obtidos em diferentes profundidades na região do cruzamento. Salienta-se a obtenção de sucesso na utilização desse procedimento, bem como de outro processo empregado para o mesmo propósito: o mapeamento bidimensional na superfície da região de intersecção entre as tintas, seguido da análise estatística de correlação com os espectros coletados individualmente nas tintas envolvidas no cruzamento.

    Obstetric anal sphincter injuries can be associated with significant short and long term consequences causing devastating impacts on the quality of lives of young, otherwise healthy women. The major consequence is anal incontinence which may be short or long term and vary in severity. The other consequences include pain, infection, dyspareunia and sexual dysfunction. This may in turn result in considerable economic burden to health care providers and patients. It also has an implication on future deliveries. Although it can never be eliminated, it can be reduced by improving practice, training and provision of high quality multidisciplinary care in order to reduce long-term morbidity. Obstetric anal sphincter injuries are also a source of litigation which can be distressing to both patients and clinicians. The aim of this review article is to explore the available evidence on epidemiology, strategies for preventions, prognosis and also how to deal with governance issues.

    Anal intraepithelial lesions are caused by chronic infection with oncogenic types of human papillomavirus. Their incidence and prevalence are increasing, especially among patients with HIV infection. Their natural history is not well known, but high-grade intraepithelial lesions seem to have an important risk to progress to squamous cell carcinoma. Their treatment can be achieved by many ways (surgery, coagulation, imiquimod, etc.) but there is a high rate of recurrent lesions. Pretherapeutic evaluation should benefit from high-resolution anoscopy. Periodic physical examination and anal cytology may probably be interesting for screening the disease among patients with risk factors. Vaccine against oncogenic types of papillomavirus may prevent the development of anal intraepithelial neoplasia. PMID:23122632

    Full Text Available Uno de los desafíos actuales para los estudios sobre movilidad y transporte en América Latina es adoptar un enfoque multidimensional de la movilidad que trascienda la noción más estrecha de desplazamiento o viaje y que, a la vez, permita integrar este tema a la discusión más general acerca del efecto de la movilidad sobre la pobreza y la exclusión social. Este artículo aborda el desafío y propone un marco analítico que recoja la -aún incipiente en nuestra región- experiencia teórico-empírica sobre estos fenómenos. Luego de revisar la literatura y argumentar a favor de la adopción de diversos postulados, se propone el enfoque de activos y estructuras de oportunidades para el estudio de la accesibilidad. Esta es concebida como el grado de ajuste entre las estructuras de oportunidades de movilidad, y los recursos y activos con que cuentan los hogares para aprovecharlas. El esquema propuesto permite maximizar la comprensión del efecto de la movilidad sobre el bienestar y el rol del transporte público.One of the major current challenges for mobility and transport studies in Latin America is the adoption of a multidimensional approach that goes beyond the narrower notion of trip and that does not neglect a broader discussion about mobility's effect on po verty and social exclusion. This article seeks to tackle this challenge and posits an analyticalframework that takes into account the theoretical and empirical regional background on these phenomena. After reviewing existing literature and affiliating to some necessary assumptions, it proposes the assets and opportunities structures approach as a useful device to study accessibility. This concept is defined as the level of adjustment between the structures of opportunity for mobility and household's resource and assets to take advantagefrom them. I argue that thisframework is adequate in order to maximize understanding of mobility's effect on welfare and the role of public transport.

Además, la capacidad de vincular las iniciativas, está en función de un conjunto de estructuras político- económicas y de factores socioculturales y patrones básicos de organización, que caracterizan el proceso sistémico de competitividad de cada país. Se concluye que existe una marcada desarticulación entre los niveles de competitividad sistémica; reflejada por una incoherencia entre las políticas de Estado, los requerimientos de sectores de actividad y el reflejo de la necesidad real de las comunidades cada vez más desprovistas de recursos. Se recomienda la necesidad de superar la ardua fase que representa establecer una economía de mercado dirigida a mejorar la condición de vida de la población; por lo que será importante facilitar procesos autónomos de búsqueda y aprendizaje significativos, para el desarrollo de la competitividad de los sectores de actividad económica latinoamericanos.

The d-family indicators are used to describe the effect of a treatment over the dependent variable in comparative studies; whereas the r-family indicators are used to explain the magnitude of the relationship between variables in correlational research. Systematic-quantitative reviews of literature have evolved into an useful decision making tool regarding whether a follow-up on specific research areas should be done or not. This decision might allow scholars to maximize their resources and time allowed to perform their research.

    Pandey, Priti

    2012-12-01

    The focus of this article is the anatomy and histology of the anal canal, and its clinical relevance to anal cancers. The article also highlights the recent histological and anatomical changes to the traditional terminology of the anal canal. The terminology has been adopted by the American Joint Committee on Cancer, separating the anal region into the anal canal, the perianal region and the skin. This paper describes the gross anatomy of the anal canal, along with its associated blood supply, venous and lymphatic drainage, and nerve supply. The new terminology referred to in this article may assist clinicians and health care providers to identify lesions more precisely through naked eye observation and without the need for instrumentation. Knowledge of the regional anatomy of the anus will also assist in management decisions.

    2004-01-01

    AIM: Hypertrophied anal papillae and fibrous anal polyps are not given due importance in the proctology practice.They are mostly ignored being considered as normal structures. The present study was aimed to demonstrate that hypertrophied anal papillae and fibrous anal polyps could cause symptoms to the patients and that they should be removed in treatment of patients with chronic fissure in anus.METHODS: Two groups of patients were studied. A hundred patients were studied in group A in which the associated fibrous polyp or papillae were removed by radio frequency surgical device after a lateral subcutaneous sphincterotomy for relieving the sphincter spasm. Another group of a hundred patients who also had papillae or fibrous polyps, were treated by lateral sphincterotomy alone. They were followed up for one year.RESULTS: Eighty-nine percent patients from group A expressed their satisfaction with the treatment in comparison to only 64% from group B who underwent sphincterotomy alone with the papillae or anal polyps left untreated. Group A patients showed a marked reduction with regard to pain and irritation during defecation (P= 0.0011),pricking or foreign body sensation in the anus (P = 0.0006)and pruritus or wetness around the anal verge (P = 0.0008).CONCLUSION: Hypertrophied anal papillae and fibrous anal polyps should be removed during treatment of chronic anal fissure. This would add to effectiveness and completeness of the procedure.

    Ideal surgical treatment for anal fistula should aim to eradicate sepsis and promote healing of the tract, whilst preserving the sphincters and the mechanism of continence. For the simple and most distal fistulae, conventional surgical options such as laying open of the fistula tract seem to be relatively safe and therefore, well accepted in clinical practise. However, for the more complex fistulae where a significant proportion of the anal sphincter is involved, great concern remains about damaging the sphincter and subsequent poor functional outcome, which is quite inevitable following conventional surgical treatment. For this reason, over the last two decades, many sphincter-preserving procedures for the treatment of anal fistula have been introduced with the common goal of minimising the injury to the anal sphincters and preserving optimal function. Among them, the ligation of intersphincteric fistula tract procedure appears to be safe and effective and may be routinely considered for complex anal fistula. Another technique, the anal fistula plug, derived from porcine small intestinal submucosa, is safe but modestly effective in long-term follow-up, with success rates varying from 24%-88%. The failure rate may be due to its extrusion from the fistula tract. To obviate that, a new designed plug (GORE BioA®) was introduced, but long term data regarding its efficacy are scant. Fibrin glue showed poor and variable healing rate (14%-74%). FiLaC and video-assisted anal fistula treatment procedures, respectively using laser and electrode energy, are expensive and yet to be thoroughly assessed in clinical practise. Recently, a therapy using autologous adipose-derived stem cells has been described. Their properties of regenerating tissues and suppressing inflammatory response must be better investigated on anal fistulae, and studies remain in progress. The aim of this present article is to review the pertinent literature, describing the advantages and limitations of

    The aim of this study was to analyze the features of Crohn's anal fistulas and to evaluate the efficacy of seton treatment. In 119 patients with Crohn's disease, the incidence of anal fistula was 56% (67/119), with no significant difference in the incidence among patients with ileitis, colitis, and ileocolitis. "Intractable" anal fistulas were found in 17% of patients with ileitis, compared to 64% of those with colitis (P = 0.051) and 68% of those with ileocolitis (P = 0.014). Seton treatment, i.e., non-cutting, long-term seton drainage, was performed for 21 patients (5 with intersphincteric, and 16 with transsphincteric fistulas). In the 16-month follow up, 9 patients required redrainage for recurrent fistulous abscess, mainly because of progressive colorectal disease. Finally, a good result was obtained in 17 of the 21 patients (81%) and no recurrent fistulous abscess developed in the 8 patients in whom all setons were removed. Anal continence was preserved in all the patients. These results indicate that anal fistulas with Crohn's ileitis were cured more easily than those with colitis or ileocolitis, and that seton treatment was effective for intersphincteric fistula with multiple fistula openings and for transphincteric fistulas in patients exhibiting remission of intestinal Crohn's disease.

    Full Text Available O regime eólico de uma região pode ser descrito por distribuição de frequências que fornecem informações e características extremamente necessárias para uma possível implantação de sistemas eólicos de captação de energia na região e consequentes aplicações no meio rural em regiões afastadas. Estas características, tais como a velocidade média anual, a variância das velocidades registradas e a densidade da potência eólica média horária, podem ser obtidas pela frequência de ocorrências de determinada velocidade, que por sua vez deve ser estudada através de expressões analíticas. A função analítica mais adequada para distribuições eólicas é a função de densidade de Weibull, que pode ser determinada por métodos numéricos e regressões lineares. O objetivo deste trabalho é caracterizar analítica e geometricamente todos os procedimentos metodológicos necessários para a realização de uma caracterização completa do regime eólico de uma região e suas aplicações na região de Botucatu - SP, visando a determinar o potencial energético para implementação de turbinas eólicas. Assim, foi possível estabelecer teoremas relacionados com a forma de caracterização do regime eólico, estabelecendo a metodologia concisa analiticamente para a definição dos parâmetros eólicos de qualquer região a ser estudada. Para o desenvolvimento desta pesquisa, utilizou-se um anemômetro da CAMPBELL.The wind regime of a region can be described by frequency distributions that provide information and features extremely necessary for a possible deployment of wind systems of energy capturing in the region and the resulting applications in rural areas in remote regions. These features, such as the annual average speed, variance of speed and hourly average of wind power density, can be obtained by the frequency of occurrences of certain speed, which in turn should be studied through analytical expressions.

    Full Text Available Os transtornos globais do desenvolvimento (TGD são caracterizados por anormalidades qualitativas e abrangentes em três domínios do desenvolvimento: interação social recíproca, comunicação e presença de um repertório comportamental de interesses restritos, repetitivo e estereotipado. Estudos genéticos têm identificado a recorrência de TGD numa mesma família. O presente estudo teve por objetivo rastrear a ocorrência de sinais e sintomas de TGD em irmãos de indivíduos com esse diagnóstico. Participaram do estudo 25 sujeitos provenientes de 19 famílias. A coleta de dados foi realizada mediante a utilização da versão brasileira do Autism Screening Questionnaire (ASQ, ou Questionário de Comportamento e Comunicação Social. Foram confirmados dois casos de irmãos com TGD (10,52% dos casos, sendo um irmão gêmeo monozigótico e um irmão de um probando com diagnóstico de síndrome de Asperger. Os dados apontam para taxas mais elevadas do que aquelas descritas na literatura (2-6% e se aproximam dos achados que relatam 10% de recorrência familiar em gêmeos dizigóticos. Esse resultado fornece evidências de possíveis fatores neurogenéticos para explicar a ocorrência de TGD nos familiares dos probandos estudados e salienta a necessidade de efetuar o rastreamento desse transtorno não só na criança avaliada, mas também em seus irmãos.Pervasive developmental disorders (PDD are characterized by comprehensive and qualitative abnormalities affecting three areas of development: reciprocal social interaction, communication, and a repetitive, stereotyped behavioral repertoire, of limited interests.

    The anatomy of the internal anal sphincter and surrounding structures was investigated in 24 cadavers using a surgical microscope (6-25 x magnification). An understanding of the anatomy of the internal anal sphincter is helpful in avoiding complications during surgical procedures in the anorectal region. The external anal sphincter was composed of three ellipsoid rings of skeletal muscle (subcutaneous, superficial, and deep) that encircle the anal canal; in contrast, we found that the internal anal sphincter was composed of flat rings of smooth muscle bundles stacked one on top of the other, like the slats of a Venetian blind. In each anal canal, the average number of ring-like slats observed was 26.33 +/- 2.93 (range = 20-30) and each was covered by its own fascia. The smooth muscle fibers and fascia coalesced at three equidistant points around the anal canal to form three columns that extended distally into the lumen and differed in form from the other anal columns. When viewed from an anterior position, the columns were located anteriorly at the observer's right (5 o'clock position), posteriorly at the right (1 o'clock position), and laterally at the left (9 o'clock position). This heretofore unreported anatomy of the internal anal sphincter may play an important role in closing off the lumen of the anal canal and maintaining bowel continence. PMID:14695582

    The incidence of anal cancer in HIV-infected men who have sex with men (MSM) is highly elevated compared to the general population, as is the incidence of its precursor lesion, high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN). MSM in general and other immunocompromised populations are also at higher risk. Treatment of HGAIN may prevent development of cancer, similar to the decrease in cervical cancers that has occurred since the advent of cervical cancer screening programs in women. Cervical cancer screening tools have been adapted and validated for screening, diagnosis, and treatment of anal HGAIN. Anal cancer screening programs have now been available for more than a decade, although they are not yet standards of care. Incorporating screening procedures into practice depends on the available resources in a particular community. This article discusses the procedures for anal cancer screening including cytology, digital anal rectal examinations, high-resolution anoscopy, and biopsy. PMID:22035526

    Full Text Available La visión multiobjetivo y multicritero permite identificar acciones consensuadas de beneficio común y compromisos compartidos en la toma de decisiones, para la conservación de los recursos naturales. El objetivo del trabajo fue proponer un modelo de análisis multiobjetivo desarrollado para el manejo de los recursos naturales en la cuenca de Lobos del municipio de León, Guanajuato; que puede ser extrapolado a cualquier cuenca del país en 2008. Los temas alternativos de acción propuestos por los participantes y usuarios de la cuenca entrevistados fueron: organización, servicios ambientales, capacitación, cultura, reforestación, ordenamiento racional y cumplimiento de la ley, los cuales se analizaron con base en criterios económicos, técnicos, sociales y ecológicos. Los resultados mostraron que la alternativa "cultura", seguida de ordenamiento racional y cumplimiento de la ley fueron las más significantes. El criterio ecológico aportó alta contribución para que "cultura" fuese la alternativa más importante. La influencia de los criterios técnico y económico fue limitada debido a la baja importancia relativa asignada.The multiobjective and multicriteria vision helps identify agreed actions with common benefits and shared commitments in decision making, for the conservation of natural resources. The aim of this study was to propose an analysis model for the management of natural resources in the basin of Lobos, in the municipality of Leon, Guanajuato; which could be applied to any basin in the country in 2008. The alternative topics of action proposed by the participants and users of the basin interviewed were: organization, environmental services, training, culture, reforestation, rational ordering and law abiding, which were analyzed based on economic, technical, social and environmental criteria. The results showed that the alternative "culture", followed by rational arrangement and law abiding were the most significant. The

    Full Text Available Se presenta una discusión teórico metodológica sobre la aplicabilidad de modelos de niveles múltiples para el estudio de los procesos de salud/enfermedad, sus determinantes y condicionantes, en función de la estratificación de la sociedad y de las condiciones de vida de sus habitantes. Se recupera una noción de población según la perspectiva de la teoría de los sistemas complejos jerárquicos que busca no reducir la realidad, sino una construcción del problema procurando identificar distintos niveles de abstracción para su abordaje. Estos modelos constituyen una opción que supera las experiencias previas, con la aplicación de técnicas estadísticas convencionales, dado que permiten analizar simultáneamente distintos niveles de agregación conservando su estructura jerárquica. Se consideran la influencia de las variables teniendo en cuenta su pertenencia a unidades mayores y la asociación potencialmente existente entre las unidades de un mismo nivel, es decir, la correlación intraclase entre variables relativas a individuos, familias, grupos, próximos entre sí, que comparten condiciones semejantes. Se evita de este modo sobredimensionar el efecto de las variables de macro nivel. Los modelos de niveles múltiples resultan particularmente adecuados para valorar desigualdades en el proceso salud/enfermedad/atención de los grupos poblacionales y analizar cómo los contextos sociales afectan los resultados y los riesgos de salud individuales. Se destaca la necesidad de desarrollar estrategias de producción de información y de análisis que posibiliten reconocer niveles de explicación y de intervención, para proveer insumos y desencadenar acciones adecuadas a las especificidades locales, a nivel de las micro-áreas, con miras a lograr una mayor equidad en salud.This paper presents the theoretical-methodological discussion about the applicability of multiple level models in the study of the health/sickness process, its

    Two cases of late onset faecal soiling as a result of anal masturbation in children who were neither mentally handicapped nor psychotic were studied. The role of soiling in aiding the young person and his family to avoid separating and maturing is highlighted. We suggest that the association of anal masturbation and resistant nocturnal soiling may be unrecognised.

    It is difficult to distinguish a tectal carcinoma with anal metastases from coexistent synchronous anorectal carcinomas.The therapeutic strategy for rectal and anal carcinoma is so different that it should be clearly identified.Here,we report on the case of a 63-year-old man who presented with an upper-third rectal adenocarcinoma.Five months after resection,he developed an adenocarcinoma in the anal canal.The histological slides of both tumors were reviewed and immunohistochemical studies for cytokeratins(CKs)7 and 20 were performed.The index tumor demonstrated CK 7-/CK 20+and the second showed CK7+/CK20+.For this reason,we believe the present case had synchronous adenocarcinomas arising from anal canal and the rectum separately.It is very important to difierentiate the anorectal lesions pathologically because of the impact on the therapeutic options available,especially for the lesion arising in the anal canal.

Está associada à sepse neonatal, meningite, pneumonia, óbito neonatal, aborto séptico, coriomnionite, endometrite e outras infecções perinatais. O objetivo deste estudo foi determinar a melhor estratégia de rastreamento de GBS em gestantes. Como método usou-se a revisão sistemática com metanálise. A pesquisa foi realizada no Departamento de Enfermagem/Universidade Federal de São Paulo/Centro Cochrane do Brasil. Para a busca usaram-se as fontes Embase, LILACS, MEDLINE, lista de referências bibliográficas, comunicação pessoal e Cochrane Library. Usaram-se, como critério de seleção, os estudos que analisaram algum tipo de rastreamento para GBS em gestantes. Independente do comparador, os resultados apontam que todas as análises foram favoráveis ao programa de screening universal para a redução da incidência de sepse neonatal. Pode-se concluir que evidências obtidas no estudo são sugestivas de que a estratégia de screening universal para as gestantes, associada ao uso de antibiótico profilático, é segura e efetiva.

    2013-11-01

    Anal cancer is a rare malignancy of the distal gastrointestinal tract, often associated with human papillomavirus, the most common sexually transmitted infection worldwide. Currently available screening methods for anal intraepithelial neoplasia, a precursor for anal cancer, combine anal Papanicolaou cytology and high resolution anoscopy with biopsy of suspicious lesions. Significant barriers to establishing anal cancer screening programmes include the small number of healthcare professionals performing high resolution anoscopy and the lack of data showing that anal cancer screening can reduce morbidity and mortality related to anal carcinoma. Despite several controversies surrounding anal cancer screening, the rising incidence of this disease in some groups supports routine screening programmes in high-risk populations, especially in HIV-positive men who have sex with men. This review outlines the epidemiology of anal intraepithelial neoplasia and anal cancer and summarizes issues related to the introduction of anal cancer screening programmes. PMID:23970583

    This review focuses on the early diagnosis of anal cancer and its precursor lesions through routine screening. Anumber of risk-stratification strategies as well as screeningtechniques have been suggested, and currently littleconsensus exists among national societies. Much ofthe current clinical rationale for the prevention of analcancer derives from the similar tumor biology of cervicalcancer and the successful use of routine screening toidentify cervical cancer and its precursors early in thedisease process. It is thought that such a strategy ofidentifying early anal intraepithelial neoplasia will reducethe incidence of invasive anal cancer. The low prevalenceof anal cancer in the general population prevents theuse of routine screening. However, routine screeningof selected populations has been shown to be a morepromising strategy. Potential screening modalities includedigital anorectal exam, anal Papanicolaou testing, humanpapilloma virus co-testing, and high-resolution anoscopy.Additional research associating high-grade dysplasiatreatment with anal cancer prevention as well as directcomparisons of screening regimens is necessary todevelop further anal cancer screening recommendations.

    The incidence of anal cancer is increasing. High risk populations include HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM), HIV-negative MSM, HIV-positive women and heterosexual men and women with a history of cervical cancer. HPV has been detected in over 90% of anal cancers. HPV16 is the most common genotype detected in about 70% of anal cancers. The quadrivalent HPV (qHPV) vaccine has been demonstrated to prevent vaccine associated persistent anal HPV infections as well as anal intraepithelial neoplasia grades 2-3 (AIN2+) in young MSM not previously infected. A retrospective analysis also suggests that qHPV vaccination of older MSM treated for AIN2+ may significantly decrease the risk of recurrence of the AIN2+. The HPV types detected in anal cancer are included in the 9-valent vaccine. Thus, the 9-valent HPV vaccine, when administered to boys and girls prior to the onset of sexual activity, should effectively prevent anal cancer. PMID:26933898

  15. Anal erogeneity: the goose and the rat.

    Shengold, L

    1982-01-01

    A case is presented in which the patient's traumatically derived intense anal erogeneity (associated with traumatic anxiety as well as with castration anxiety) inhibited his phallic sensations and potency and also his power to sustain productive thought. His passive cravings were disguised and reacted against in his compulsive-exhibitionistically phallic role of a Don Juan. He described at least two levels of anal feelings: a dangerous but exciting, tolerable or even pleasurable tension associated with the imago of the goose; and an unbearable, terrifying overcharged level embodied in the imago of the rat. (He had read of, and had felt himself identified with, Freud's Rat Man.) Contrasts are presented with François Rabelais' account of the instinctual development and anal training of Gargantua, in which the connotations of the goose lead to a happy anal, phallic and intellectual control. Generalizations are ventured about the crucial attainment of command over the anal sphincter for the taming of 'primal affect'(Fliess). With early psychopathology there is a defensive overcathexis of anal control (and of anal mechanisms and character traits) to try to contain over-stimulation. In contrast true anal mastery contributes to the acquisition of optimal genital feelings and functioning and to the capacity for sustaining integrative thinking so necessary for 'owning' one's affects and impulses, and therefore for a feeling of identity. Finally, some remarks of Freud on Rabelais are reviewed in relation to levels of urethral erogeneity, seen as developmental way stations between the anal and the phallic, and partaking of both.

    Full Text Available A nistatina é um antibiótico poliênico, com características fungistáticas e fungicidas, que age desestruturando a membrana celular de fungos e leveduras. O creme vaginal de nistatina é usado para o tratamento da candidíase vaginal. Até recentemente, os compêndios oficiais preconizavam o ensaio microbiológico para doseamento deste antibiótico, método este considerado inviável na rotina de centros de controle de qualidade, devido ao tempo excessivo para liberação dos resultados. Visando obter um método alternativo para o doseamento do creme vaginal de nistatina, procurou-se desenvolver e validar um método cromatográfico (CLAE. O método desenvolvido utilizou como fase estacionária uma coluna de fase reversa, C18, 3,9 x 150 mm, 4 mm, à temperatura de 30 ºC. A fase móvel foi constituída por tampão fosfato de sódio 0,25 mM e EDTA 0,025 mM, pH 6,00, metanol e acetonitrila (40:30:30, vazão de 1,0 mL/minuto e comprimento de onda 305 nm.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo investigar, na obra de Freud, a demarcação que se institui entre o terapêutico e o analítico. Tal investigação enfoca, primeiramente, a passagem da hipnose à associação livre e o direcionamento do autor à questão da causa, o que estabelece uma visada para a cura analítica em confluência com o que se desdobra da exploração do campo do inconsciente e da consideração de um domínio pulsional. Delimitados por esta via os objetivos terapêuticos e analíticos, interroga-se, em seguida, como a dimensão do terapêutico se veria reintroduzida nos termos da nova direção de cura proposta por Freud.

    Full Text Available O ácido retinóico (AR tem sido utilizado para o tratamento de acne severa, rugas, estrias e celulite, no entanto, provoca irritação na pele e sofre rápida degradação quando exposto à luz e ao calor. Métodos analíticos rápidos para quantificação do AR são, portanto, necessários para ensaios de cinética de liberação in vitro. Nesse contexto, o objetivo deste trabalho foi desenvolver e validar um método rápido e sensível para o doseamento do AR em microcápsulas de alginato/quitosana contendo óleo de babaçu dispersas em gel natrosol® por cromatografia líquida de alta eficiência associada à espectroscopia UV e aplicá-lo na avaliação do perfil de liberação in vitro dessas formulações. As análises foram realizadas em modo isocrático utilizando coluna C18 de fase reversa 150 x 4,6 mm (5 μm com detecção a 350 nm. A fase móvel foi constituída de metanol e ácido acético 1% (85:15 v/v com vazão de 1,8 mL/minuto. A faixa de linearidade do método foi de 0,5 a 60 μg/mL (r² = 0,999. O método validado mostrou-se sensível, específico, exato, preciso, de baixo custo e o tempo de retenção do AR foi de 5,8 ± 0,4 minutos sendo, desta forma, mais rápido do que os relatados na literatura.Retinoic acid (RA has been used in the treatment of severe acne, wrinkles and cellulite. However, it induces skin irritation and rapidly suffers degradation under light and high temperate exposure. Rapid analytical methods to quantify retinoic acid are therefore mandatory for in vitro drug release studies. In this framework, the aim of this study was to develop and validate a rapid and responsive method to quantify the RA in microcapsules of chitosan and alginate containing babassu oil dispersed in natrosol® hydrogel using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC. Furthermore this method was used to quantify in vitro release kinetics of RA from microcapsules. The analyses have been carried through an isocratic HPLC-UV method

    Full Text Available PURPOSE: Anal stenosis is a rare, incapacitating, and challenging condition, occurring mainly after hemorrhoidectomy, for which several surgical techniques have been devised. The purpose of this study was to describe early and late (1 year results of 77 anoplasty operations performed in the Colorectal Unit of our institution. METHODS: From 1977 to 2002, 77 patients with moderate to severe anal stenosis underwent surgery using two sliding graft techniques: 58 underwent Sarner's operation and 19 underwent Musiari's technique. Bilateral flaps were used in 7 patients. RESULTS: Early morbidity was due to pruritus occurring in 2 patients, urinary infection in 1, and temporary incontinence in 1 patient. One patient needed early reoperation following suture line dehiscence. Late results (1 year were classified as good in 67 cases (87%. There was no reoperation due to recurrence of stenosis. CONCLUSION: The ease of performance, good functional results, and lack of severe complications show that Sarner's and Musiari's flap advancement techniques are effective and safe methods for surgical correction of anal stenosis, particularly when cutaneous fibrosis plays a major role in its etiology.OBJETIVO: A estenose anal é uma condição rara, incapacitante e desafiadora que ocorre principalmente após hemorroidectomia, para a qual diversas técnicas cirúrgicas reparadoras foram desenvolvidas.

    Full Text Available O fator de Leiden é uma mutação genética que predispõe seus portadores ao tromboembolismo venoso. O objetivo do estudo foi investigar a distribuição dos alelos em 21 membros da família de três pacientes portadores de trombose com a presença da mutação do fator V de Leiden. A detecção da mutação no gene do fator V foi realizada entre portadores da mutação no estado heterozigoto. Este estudo foi realizado no Centro de Hematologia e Hemoterapia do Ceará - Hemoce. Observou-se a presença da mutação no estado heterozigoto na família 1 (83,3%, na família 2 (40% e na família 3 (50%. No total de 24 membros (pacientes e familiares analisados, 50% (12/24 apresentaram a mutação, todos no estado heterozigoto, 66,7% (8/12 não apresentaram trombose. A detecção do fator V de Leiden em pacientes portadores de eventos trombóticos é recomendado para esclarecimento das causas e para efetuar o rastreamento em membros de sua família, ainda sem o aparecimento de eventos trombóticos, de forma a avaliar os riscos associados e assim determinar um acompanhamento médico preventivo.Factor V Leiden is a mutation that can cause venous thrombosis. When associated to other risk factors such as the use of contraceptives, important surgical intervention, pregnancy and malignant diseases, the risk for heterozygous carriers increases by three-fold to 10 times or even 80 times for two mutated alleles. The factor V Leiden is found in about 20% of the population with a history of venous thromboembolism. It is present in about 4 to 6% of general population but this percentage changes depending on the ethnicity. This study shows the distribution of alleles in family members of three carriers of factor V Leiden diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis. The mutation investigation of the factor V Leiden gene was performed in 21 family members of 3 heterozygous carriers. The study was performed in the Hematology and Hemotherapy Center from Ceará - Hemoce

  11. Proctology - diseases of the anal region.

    2016-04-01

    Proctology is a medical subspecialty that encompasses diseases of the perianal region, anal canal, and rectum. Dermatologists play a pivotal role in this realm, as inflammatory perianal disorders, infectious and sexually transmitted diseases, as well as perianal tumors and their precursor lesions fall within the core competency of dermatology. In a concise manner, the present article highlights all relevant disease groups in the field of proctology. With a particular focus on aspects pertinent to dermatologists, this includes inflammatory disorders, "classic" proctologic diseases, sexually transmitted diseases, malignancies of the anal region, as well as pathogen-induced diseases. Despite the wide variety of disorders, there are only five key symptoms prompting patients to consult a proctologist, including anal pruritus and burning, discharge, bleeding, pain, and foreign body sensation. A simple algorithm, which incorporates these symptoms as well as key clinical features, may assist in quickly establishing the correct diagnosis in everyday clinical practice. PMID:27027745

    Full Text Available La determinación de la materia orgánica (MO resulta fundamental para el conocimiento de la productividad agrícola y forestal de los suelos. En este estudio se evaluó la relación entre los contenidos de materia orgánica (MO determinados por pérdida por ignición (MO PI y combustión húmeda de Walkley-Black (MO CH en suelos de la Región Andino Patagónica. La relación se evaluó para suelos volcánicos con y sin aluminosilicatos amorfos y con distintos tipos de vegetación: plantaciones de Pinus ponderosa, bosques de Austrocedrus chilensis, arbustales, estepa arbustiva y estepa herbácea. Se seleccionaron 100 sitios de muestreo, donde se tomaron muestras compuestas del horizonte A para la determinación de MO CH y MO PI. Los datos fueron analizados mediante análisis de varianza y regresiones simples. MO CH fue siempre inferior a MO PI. Esto es esperable dado que MO PI incluye la MO total, mientras que MO CH discrimina las formas de carbono fuertemente condensadas. Si bien no se detectaron diferencias en la relación entre los métodos analíticos para suelos con y sin aluminosilicatos amorfos, sí existió una fuerte relación entre la presencia de estos y los contenidos absolutos de MO. La relación entre los métodos analíticos varió según el tipo de vegetación. Los suelos que sustentan vegetación de estepa herbácea y plantación de pino ponderosa presentaron las mayores diferencias entre los dos métodos analíticos. MO CH fue, en promedio, un 37% inferior a MO PI para estos tipos de vegetación, siendo significativamente superior a lo hallado en arbustales (26%. Los suelos con bosque denso de Austrocedrus chilensis y estepa arbustiva presentaron valores intermedios (30 y 35%, respectivamente. Las plantaciones de pino ponderosa (primera rotación, edad promedio 21 años fueron realizadas en áreas de estepa herbácea. Las similitudes encontradas entre ambos suelos podrían estar asociadas a características de la MO propias del

    To help students critique sex/gender norms, sexuality educators should address men's anal pleasure. Men's anal receptivity blurs accepted binaries like male/female, masculine/feminine, and straight/queer. By suppressing men's receptivity, the taboo against men's anal pleasure helps legitimize hegemonic sex/gender beliefs--and the sexism,…

  19. [Diagnostics and conservative treatment of anal incontinence].

    Geile, Dorothea; Osterholzer, Georg; Rosenberg, Robert

    2004-01-01

    Anal incontinence is diagnosed primarily by clinical and proctologic examination. Etiological factors of the disease are found in 85% of the patients by additional examinations. Motility dysfunction of colon and rectum has to be excluded (stenosis, dyschezia, internal hernias). Because anal incontinence is a multifactorial disease as a rule, the single compounds have to be diagnosed and have to undergo therapy. Accordingly, useful investigations are: endorectal ultrasound (defect of muscle, inflammatory or tumour infiltration), manometry (alteration of either anal resting pressure and/or anal squeezing pressure) and surface electromyography (ability of contraction, duration of contraction, strength). Neurophysiological examinations are: needle electromyography, pudendal nerve latency time measurement (PNLT). The occurrence of nerve damage determines the outcome of operative intervention! Conservative treatment is indicated in 80 to 90% of all patients, even higher when one includes all patients in the perioperative period. Possible therapy modalities are: nutrition consultation, physiotherapy, pelvic floor training, biofeedback training of pelvic floor and sphincter muscles, electrostimulation and the combination of both (EMG-triggered electrostimulation). Short-term results are satisfying in up to 85% of patients, but later, successful results depend on the patient's willingness or ability to continue training, and on his/her age.

    Full Text Available La confección de presupuestos públicos austeros para la consecución de los criterios de convergencia impuestos por el Tratado de Maastricht ha originado una preocupación en todo el Sector Público en general, y en el hospitalario en particular, por la contención de los costes. Esta situación ha puesto de manifiesto la necesidad de introducir sistemas de Contabilidad para la Gestión interna de las organizaciones hospitalarias públicas. Así, la Contabilidad Analítica o de Costes se constituye como un componente más de dichos sistemas y está llamada a alcanzar dos objetivos muy claros, por un lado, la determinación del coste del producto hospitalario para en base a él realizar una presupuestación prospectiva, y por otro, suministrar información interna que permita llevar a cabo un verdadero Control de Gestión. Con este trabajo se pretenden describir los modelos de costes alternativos propuestos por la literatura especializada, señalando su idoneidad en base a la consecución de los objetivos que la Contabilidad Analítica debe satisfacer. Se pondrá de manifiesto la tendencia actual a establecer modelos basados en la nueva definición de producto hospitalario, los cuales tienen como finalidad la determinación de los costes totales de dicho producto, dejando a un lado el objetivo del control de la eficacia y eficiencia de la gestión.The development of strict Public Budgets in order to reach the goals settled by Maastricht agreements have caused a deep concern in the Public Sector and mostly in hospitals in order to brake the growth of costs.

    The aim of this study was to systematically review the findings of publications addressing the epidemiology of anal human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, anal intraepithelial neoplasia, and anal cancer in women. We conducted a systematic review among publications published from Jan. 1, 1997, to Sept. 30, 2013, to limit to publications from the combined antiretroviral therapy era. Three searches were performed of the National Library of Medicine PubMed database using the following search terms: women and anal HPV, women anal intraepithelial neoplasia, and women and anal cancer. Publications were included in the review if they addressed any of the following outcomes: (1) prevalence, incidence, or clearance of anal HPV infection, (2) prevalence of anal cytological or histological neoplastic abnormalities, or (3) incidence or risk of anal cancer. Thirty-seven publications addressing anal HPV infection and anal cytology remained after applying selection criteria, and 23 anal cancer publications met the selection criteria. Among HIV-positive women, the prevalence of high-risk (HR)-HPV in the anus was 16-85%. Among HIV-negative women, the prevalence of anal HR-HPV infection ranged from 4% to 86%. The prevalence of anal HR-HPV in HIV-negative women with HPV-related pathology of the vulva, vagina, and cervix compared with women with no known HPV-related pathology, varied from 23% to 86% and from 5% to 22%, respectively. Histological anal high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (anal intraepithelial neoplasia 2 or greater) was found in 3-26% of the women living with HIV, 0-9% among women with lower genital tract pathology, and 0-3% for women who are HIV negative without known lower genital tract pathology. The incidence of anal cancer among HIV-infected women ranged from 3.9 to 30 per 100,000. Among women with a history of cervical cancer or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3, the incidence rates of anal cancer ranged from 0.8 to 63.8 per 100,000 person-years, and in

    Squamous cell carcinoma ofthe anal canal represents 1.5% of all malignancies affectingthe gastrointestinal tract. Over the past 20 years dramatic changes have been seen in both the epidemiological distribution of the disease and in the therapeutic modalities utilised to manage it. CLINICAL MANAGEMENT: Historically abdominoperineal resection had been the treatment of choice with local resection reserved for early stage disease. Work by Nigro et al. has revolutionised how we currently manage carcinoma of the anal canal, demonstrating combined modality chemoradiotherapy as an appropriate alternative to surgical resection with the benefit of preserving sphincter function. Surgery is then reserved for recurrent disease with salvage abdominoperineal resection. This article reviews current literature and highlights the changing therapeutic modalities with selected clinical cases

    1991-04-01

    A prospective trial was performed comparing the accuracy of digital examination and anal endosonography in defining the anatomy of anal fistulae. Before operation 38 consecutive patients were assessed by the consultant in charge of the case, by a research fellow and by anal endosonography involving two radiologists. These findings were compared with the operative findings. Consultants correctly identified 26 of 33 internal openings, 29 of 34 primary tracks and 15 of 21 secondary tracks. The research fellow correctly identified 26 internal openings, 24 primary tracks and 10 secondary tracks. There was no significant difference between the accuracy of consultants and the research fellow. Anal endosonography identified 10 internal openings based on initial criteria. This rose to 24 when revised ultrasonographic criteria were applied. There was no statistical difference between consultant assessment and anal ultrasonography in correctly identifying intersphincteric and transphincteric tracks. Ultrasonography is unable to assess primary superficial, suprasphincteric and extrasphincteric tracks or secondary supralevator and infralevator tracks. Consultant assessment of secondary supralevator and infralevator tracks was correct in 78 per cent of cases. PMID:2032103

  11. Development of a pulse height analizer

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The development of a Pulse Height Analizer is described. This equipment is essential to analize data coming from detectors producing information codified in pulse amplitudes. The system developed consist of a Signal Input Module connected to a Controller Module based on a 8085A microprocessor capable to memorize pulses up to 1 uS in 256 channels with a resolution better than 20 mV. A Communication Module with a serial interface is used for data transfer to a host computer using RS232c protocol. The Monitoring and Operation Module consist of a hexadecimal Keybord, a 6 digit 7-segment display and a XY analog output enabling real time visualization of data on a XY monitor. The hardware and the software designed for this low cost system were optimized to obtain a typical dead time of approximately 100 uS. As application, this device was used to adquire curves at the Small Angle X-ray Scattering Laboratory in this Department. The apparatus performance was tested by comparing its data with a Northern Pulse Height Analizer model NS633 output, with favorable results. (Author)

    Full Text Available Anal intraepitelial neoplasia (AIN constitutes a major health problem in certain risk groups, such as patients with immunosuppression of varied origin, males who have sexual relations with other males, and females with a previous history of vaginal or cervical abnormalities in cytology. Its relationship with the human papillomavirus (HPV infection has been well documented; however, many of the factors involved in the progression and regression of the viral infection to dysplasia and anal carcinoma are unknown. AIN can be diagnosed through cytology of the anal canal or biopsy guided by high-resolution anoscopy. However, the need for these techniques in high-risk groups remains controversial. Treatment depends on the risk factors and given the high morbidity and high recurrence rates the utility of the different local treatments is still a subject of debate. Surgical biopsy is justified only in the case of progression suggesting lesions. The role of the vaccination in high-risk patients as primary prevention has been debated by different groups.

    Anal squamous cell carcinoma is rare in the general population but certain populations, such as persons with HIV, are at increased risk. High-risk populations can be screened for anal cancer using strategies similar to those used for cervical cancer. However, little is known about the use of such screening practices across jurisdictions. Data were collected using an online survey. Health care professionals currently providing anal cancer screening services were invited to complete the survey via email and/or fax. Information was collected on populations screened, services and treatments offered, and personnel. Over 300 invitations were sent; 82 providers from 80 clinics around the world completed the survey. Fourteen clinics have each examined more than 1000 patients. Over a third of clinics do not restrict access to screening; in the rest, eligibility is most commonly based on HIV status and abnormal anal cytology results. Fifty-three percent of clinics require abnormal anal cytology prior to performing high-resolution anoscopy (HRA) in asymptomatic patients. Almost all clinics offer both anal cytology and HRA. Internal high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN) is most often treated with infrared coagulation (61%), whereas external high-grade AIN is most commonly treated with imiquimod (49%). Most procedures are performed by physicians, followed by nurse practitioners. Our study is the first description of global anal cancer screening practices.

    Anal health and anal cancer are rarely addressed in HIV primary care. We sought to understand factors that impeded or promoted addressing anal health in HIV primary care from providers' perspectives. In this exploratory study, HIV primary care providers from the Mid-South region of the United States participated in brief individual interviews. We analyzed transcribed data to identify barriers and facilitators to addressing anal health. Our study sample included five physicians and four nurse practitioners. The data revealed a number of barriers such as perception of patient embarrassment, provider embarrassment, external issues such as time constraints, demand of other priorities, lack of anal complaints, lack of resources, and gender discordance. Facilitators included awareness, advantageous circumstances, and the patient-provider relationship. Anal health education should be prioritized for HIV primary care providers. Preventive health visits should be considered to mitigate time constraints, demands for other priorities, and unequal gender opportunities. PMID:27080925

    2015-01-01

    Background Despite the surge of new medical and surgical approaches to treat fecal incontinence, the types of sphincter abnormalities in patients with incontinence have not been well characterized. We aimed to categorize anal sphincter dysfunction using anorectal manometry in patients with fecal incontinence as a potential guide for improved treatment. Methods A retrospective review of 162 consecutive patients with fecal incontinence referred for anorectal manometry was performed. Resting anal pressure and maximal squeeze pressure were considered as measures of internal anal sphincter and external anal sphincter function respectively. Results Mean age of the patients was 63 years (13-89); females (81.5%) and males (18.5%). 74% of the patients had sphincter dysfunction on anorectal manometry. Internal anal sphincter dysfunction was present in 62% patients vs. external anal sphincter dysfunction present in 44% patients. 80% females had abnormal manometry vs. 44% in males (P<0.0001). Internal anal sphincter dysfunction was present in 68% females vs. 37% in males (P=0.0026). Conclusions Overall, abnormal anorectal manometry studies revealed that internal anal sphincter dysfunction is the most common finding, alone or in combination with external anal sphincter dysfunction. We suggest that anorectal manometry may be important to delineate anal sphincter function prior to using newer therapeutic mechanical devices. Future studies using pharmacological agents to increase internal anal sphincter tone may be of clinical importance. Finally, the classification of fecal incontinence based on the type of sphincter dysfunction may be an improved guide in the selection of newer agents in treating fecal incontinence. PMID:26423466

    2016-01-27

    This review focuses on the early diagnosis of anal cancer and its precursor lesions through routine screening. A number of risk-stratification strategies as well as screening techniques have been suggested, and currently little consensus exists among national societies. Much of the current clinical rationale for the prevention of anal cancer derives from the similar tumor biology of cervical cancer and the successful use of routine screening to identify cervical cancer and its precursors early in the disease process. It is thought that such a strategy of identifying early anal intraepithelial neoplasia will reduce the incidence of invasive anal cancer. The low prevalence of anal cancer in the general population prevents the use of routine screening. However, routine screening of selected populations has been shown to be a more promising strategy. Potential screening modalities include digital anorectal exam, anal Papanicolaou testing, human papilloma virus co-testing, and high-resolution anoscopy. Additional research associating high-grade dysplasia treatment with anal cancer prevention as well as direct comparisons of screening regimens is necessary to develop further anal cancer screening recommendations.

  13. Chronic anal fissure: new approaches to chemical sphincterotomy

    Full Text Available

    • An anal fissure is a split in the mucosa extending from the anal verge towards the dentate line. It currently affects 10% of patients attending proctology clinics. Recent studies have highlighted the role of increased internal anal sphincter pressure and decreased anodermal blood flow in the pathogenesis of chronic anal fissures. Acute fissures usually heal with conservative management. Fissures lasting greater than two months with features of chronicity, are unlikely to heal with conservative management. Lateral internal sphincterotomy has been the treatment of choice for chronic anal fissures. Because of the disability associated with surgery for healing anal fissure and the risk of incontinence, medical alternatives for surgery have been sought. Among different chemical agents, Glyceryl trinitrate (GTN has been shown to be the first line treatment for chronic anal fissure but the transient sphincteric relaxation effect of pharmacologic agents such as GTN, makes them less effective than surgery. Although we have different forms of GTN products, they do not show a long acting effect on relaxing and enhancing the perfusion of anal sphincter, because they are soon metabolized. Most difficulties with current usage of drugs are due to poor compliance of patients. It can be taken into consideration that new formulation and novel combination of GTN with other treatments, in slow releasing forms may lead to acceptable strategies in the management of chronic anal fissure. As authors’ experience in this field, other clinical trials on the drug combination and slow releasing formulations are warranted to generate new data on the subject.

  18. Anal transition zone in the surgical management of ulcerative colitis

    2009-01-01

    Preservation of the anal transition zone has long been a significant source of controversy in the surgical management of ulcerative colitis. The two techniques for restorative proctocolectomy and ileal pouch anal anastomosis (RPC IPAA) in common practice are a stapled anastomosis and a handsewn anastomosis;these techniques differ in the amount of remaining rectal mucosa and therefore the presence of the anal transition zone following surgery. Each technique has advantages and disadvantages in long-term functional outcomes, operative and postoperative complications, and risk of neoplasia. Therefore, we propose a selective approach to performing a stapled RPC IPAA based on the presence of dysplasia in the preoperative endoscopic evaluation.

    Full Text Available Objectives To evaluate anal sphincter anatomy using three-dimensional ultrasonography (3-DAUS in incontinent women with vaginal delivery, correlate anatomical findings with symptoms of fecal incontinence and determine the effect of vaginal delivery on anal canal anatomy and function. Methods Female with fecal incontinence and vaginal delivery were assessed with Wexner’s score, manometry, and 3DAUS. A control group comprising asymptomatic nulliparous was included. Anal pressure, the angle of the defect and length of the external anal sphincter (EAS, the anterior and posterior internal anal sphincter (IAS, the EAS + puborectal and the gap were measured and correlated with score. Results Of the 62, 49 had fecal incontinence and 13 were asymptomatic. Twenty five had EAS defects, 8 had combined EAS+IAS defects, 16 had intact sphincters and continence scores were similar. Subjects with sphincter defects had a shorter anterior EAS, IAS and longer gap than women without defects. Those with a vaginal delivery and intact sphincters had a shorter anterior EAS and longer gap than nulliparous. We found correlations between resting pressure and anterior EAS and IAS length in patients with defects. Conclusions Avaliar a anatomia do esfíncter anal usando ultra-sonografia tridimensional (3D-US em mulheres incontinentes com parto vaginal, correlacionar os achados anatômicos com sintomas de incontinência fecal e, determinar o efeito do parto vaginal sobre a anatomia e função do canal anal.

    Full Text Available  Introduction:Anal condylomata acuminata was a well-known disease in ancient times but in recent years there has been a rapidly increasing number of people who suffer from this disease. The main cause of this disease is infection of human papilloma virus (HPV which occurs through sexual contact.Currently there are three different ways to treat anal condylomata. Small changes of anal condylomata can be treated with local therapeutic agents, but the best results of treatment of extensive changes are obtained by surgical techniques.Material/Methods:The study group consisted of 30 patients with diagnosed extensive anal condylomata who underwent surgery in Mikolaj Pirogow High Specialized Hospital in Lodz. The survey was conducted from 2007 to 2011. Patients had been directed to the surgical ward by general surgeons and practitioners, proctologists and urologists. The diagnosis was made after proctological assessment in the knee-chest position.Results:All patients underwent surgery and had complete macroscopic electroexcision of anal condylomata. In the research group there was no mortality. Postoperative complications occurred in 4 (13.3�20patients – postoperative bleeding. Strong pain was present in 14 (46.7�20patients but only in the postoperative period. During postoperative follow-up there was no observed infection in the anal region or recurrence of disease. In the operated group there were no observed cosmetic deformations of the anus and/or the anal canal, narrow anal canal or functional fecal incontinence symptoms.Conclusions:Surgical treatment of anal condylomata is an effective and safe method for the patient. In our research there were no serious postoperative complications or recurrence of the disease during the follow-up period.

    Full Text Available Aim: the aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of topical glyceryl trinitrate (GTN in the treatment of anal fissure. Patients: eighty consecutive patients were randomized to receive 0.2% GTN gel twice a day during a minimum of 6 weeks. Of these 80 patients 34 were males and 46 female, with ages be-tween 20 and 78 years. All patients underwent a work-up that included gender, age, symptom duration, site, previous treatment attempts, pain score, associated diseases, and maximum anal resting pressure. These patients were followed at regular intervals of 4, 8, and 12 weeks to assess symptom outcome, rate of healing, adverse effects, and recurrence rate. Results: pain scores were significantly reduced during the treatment period in 65% of cases. After 4 weeks, 55% of patients had healed, and 78% after 9 weeks. In 18 patients (22%, anal fissures did not heal even with 6 additional weeks of treatment, and 12 of them (15% underwent lateral sphincterotomy.

    Bhupinder S Anand; Gordana Verstovsek; George Cole

    2006-01-01

    Tumors arising from the anal canal are usually of epithelial origin and are mostly squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma. We present a case of benign anal adenomas arising from the anus, an extremely rare diagnosis. A 78-year-old white man presented with rectal bleeding of several months duration. Examination revealed a 4 cm friable mass attached to the anus by a stalk. At surgery, the mass was grasped with a Babcock forceps and was resected using electrocautery.Microscopic examination revealed a tubulovillus adenoma with no areas of high grade dysplasia or malignant transformation. The squamocolumnar junction was visible at the edges of the lesion confirming the anal origin of the tumor. We believe the tubulovillus adenoma arose from either an anal gland or its duct that opens into the anus. Although seen rarely, it is important to recognize and treat these tumors at an early stage because of their potential to transform into adenocarcinoma.

    Full Text Available Background. This paper presents our first experience in the treatment of primary anal fissure by injection of botulinum A toxin into the internal sphincter. Methods. The study group of the retrospective study included 12 outpatients (8 females and 4 males, mean age 42 (range 18-60. During the period 2000-2003, after unsuccessful conservative treatment, patients were treated with the injections of botulinum A toxin, 100 units on both sides of the anal fissure laterally into the internal anal sphincter (50 units on either side. The patients were clinically evaluated 3, 7, and 30 days, and 3 and 6 months after the treatment. Results. Three fissures had healed after a month, and seven after 3 months. Two remained unhealed, but asymptomatic. There was no incontinence of flatus or faeces after 3 months of the treatment. After temporary healing, two fissures relapsed after 6 months, and these patients had the adequate tonus of the anal sphincter muscles. Except for the temporary incontinence, there were neither other side-efects, nor serious complications. Conclusion. Injection of botulinum A toxin achieved good results in the treatment of anal fissure. The appropriate use makes this method safe as an alternative to surgical treatment of anal fissure.

As respostas foram obtidas com pulsos duplos de 0,2 ms de duração e intervalos de 5 ms, aplicados a uma freqüência menor que 0,5 Hz. Foram medidas as latências iniciais das respostas. Não foram evidenciadas diferenças entre as respostas obtidas de cada lado do EEA e nem entre os lados, com relação aos estímulos. Uma das voluntárias não apresentou respostas após estimulação de um dos lados. Não foram observadas diferenças relacionadas a paridade total e nem com a presença de partos vaginais. A idade e o índice de massa corpórea não se correlacionaram com as respostas. Em 12% das respostas, a medida das latências foi dificultada pela baixa relação sinal-ruído.The pudendo-anal reflex was studied in a sample of 31 normal women. Responses were obtained after bilateral independent stimulation of the clitoris, with surface recordings from both sides of the external anal sphincter. Reponses were elicited with double-pulses of 0,2 ms duration with a interstimulus interval of 5 ms, frequency of stimulation was lower than 0,5 Hz. A minimal of four responses were recorded after supramaximal stimulation. In one volunteer no response was recorded after unilateral stimulation. Latencies of the responses from the right and left sides of the anal sfincter after right and left stimulation were 36.35±6.37, 36.28±6.23, 35.88±4.68, 36.44±4.45ms, respectively. No relation was detected between latencies and age, body mass index and parity (considering either total parity or vaginal delivery only. In 12% of the recordings uncertainty was introduced in the latency measurements related to a poor signal-noise ratio.

    1989-02-01

    The epithelial coating of the rectal pouch and fistula was studied morphologically in 33 newborn piglets with high and low forms of anal atresia and was found to be similar to the epithelial coating of the anal canal in normal piglets: the typical epithelium of the rectum changed its character into transitional epithelium at the region of the internal sphincter which surrounded the fistulae in all animals. In the caudal part of the fistula the transitional epithelium was followed by squamous epithelium. Only in male piglets with deformities and recto-urethral fistulae no squamous epithelium was found. In these cases transitional epithelium covered all parts of the fistula and the region of the internal sphincter. Anal glands were found in all animals, with or without anorectal malformations. They always invaded the internal sphincter. According to our morphological studies the fistula in anorectal malformations represents an ectopic anal canal.

    There is no consensus on optimal screening for anal cancer (AC) in HIV+ women. Seven hundred fifteen unique asymptomatic women in a high-prevalence HIV+ community were screened for AC with anal cytology and triage to high-resolution anoscopy after routine screening was implemented in a large urban hospital system. Of these, 75 (10.5%) had an abnormal anal cytology and 29 (38.7%) of those with an abnormality had high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN). Women with poorly controlled HIV were significantly more likely to have high-grade AIN (P = 0.03). Given the high rate of AIN in screened HIV-infected women, routine AC screening in all HIV-infected women should be strongly considered. PMID:22466085

O tratamento consiste de radio e/ou quimioterapia, eventualmente seguidos pela ressecção do tumor. O objetivo é avaliar o seguimento desses doentes para verificar as recidivas e a evolução do NIAA para câncer. Apresentação da casuística da Equipe Técnica de Proctologia do Instituto de Infectologia Emílio Ribas, de São Paulo. MÉTODOS: Acompanhamos 45 doentes HIV-positivos portadores de carcinoma espinocelular anal e seu precursor no período de 1996 a 2006. Eram 30 neoplasias intra-epiteliais anais de alto grau (NIAA, tratadas com ressecção local e 15 carcinomas invasores do canal anal. Nove das 15 lesões invasivas foram submetidas ao esquema de Nigro isolado ou associado à ressecção local, amputação abdominoperineal ou colostomia para derivação. RESULTADOS: No seguimento ambulatorial das NIAA tivemos recidiva em 16,7% e não observamos evolução para carcinoma, num período mínimo de três anos. Entre os nove tumores submetidos ao esquema de Nigro, com ou sem operação complementar, cinco estão livres de tumor. Nenhum tratamento foi feito em cinco doentes. Em três, devido às péssimas condições clínicas, e em dois, pois recusaram tratamento. Outro teve diagnóstico na vigência de oclusão intestinal sendo submetido à colostomia de derivação. CONCLUSÃO: Concluímos que a NIAA pode reincidir após excisão local em doentes HIV-positivos, mas não evolui para carcinoma invasor e que os doentes de câncer anal invasor podem ser tratados da mesma maneira que a população soronegativa para o HIV desde que as condições clínicas o permitam.OBJECTIVE: Incidence of anal squamous cell carcinoma is increasing mainly among HIV-positive patients.

    Anal squamous cell cancer is an uncommon malignancy caused by infection with oncogenic strains of Human papilloma virus. Anal cancer is much more common in immunocompromised persons, including those infected with Human immunodeficiency virus. High-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN), the precursor of anal cancer, is identified by clinicians providing care for patients with anorectal disease, and is increasingly being identified during screening of immunosuppressed patients for anal dysplasia. The traditional treatment for HGAIN has been excision of macroscopic disease with margins. This approach is effective for patients with small unifocal HGAIN lesions. Patients with extensive multifocal HGAIN frequently have recurrence of HGAIN after excision, and may have postoperative complications of anal stenosis or fecal incontinence. This led to the suggestion by some that treatment for HGAIN should be delayed until patients developed anal cancer. Alternative approaches in identification and treatment have been developed to treat patients with multifocal or extensive HGAIN lesions. High-resolution anoscopy combines magnification with anoscopy and is being used to identify HGAIN and determine treatment margins. HGAIN can then be ablated with a number of modalities, including infrared coagulation, CO2 laser, and electrocautery. These methods for HGAIN ablation can be performed with local anesthesia on outpatients and are relatively well tolerated. High-resolution anoscopy-directed HGAIN ablation is evolving into a standard approach for initial treatment and then subsequent monitoring of a disease which should be expected to be recurrent. Another treatment approach for HGAIN is topical treatment, principally with 5-fluorouracil or imiquimod. Topical therapies have the advantage of being nonsurgical and are well suited for treating widespread multifocal disease. Topical treatments have the disadvantage of requiring extended treatment courses and causing a symptomatic

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Anal smears are increasingly being used as a screening test for anal squamous intraepithelial lesions (ASILs. This study was undertaken to assess the usefulness and limitations of anal smears in screening for ASILs. Methods The cytomorphological features of 200 consecutive anal smears collected in liquid medium from 198 patients were studied and findings were correlated with results of surgical biopsies and/or repeat smears that became available for 71 patients within six months. Results Adequate cellularity was defined as an average of 6 or more nucleated squamous cells/hpf. A glandular/transitional component was not required for adequacy. Dysplastic cells, atypical parakeratotic cells and bi/multinucleated cells were frequent findings in ASIL while koilocytes were infrequent. Smears from LSIL cases most frequently showed mildly dysplastic and bi/multinucleate squamous cells followed by parakeratotic cells (PK, atypical parakeratotic cells (APK, and koilocytes. HSIL smears contained squamous cells with features of moderate/severe dysplasia and many APKs. Features of LSIL were also found in most HSIL smears. Conclusions In this study liquid based anal smears had a high sensitivity (98% for detection of ASIL but a low specificity (50% for predicting the severity of the abnormality in subsequent biopsy. Patients with cytologic diagnoses of ASC-US and LSIL had a significant risk (46–56% of HSIL at biopsy. We suggest that all patients with a diagnosis of ASC-US and above be recommended for high resolution anoscopy with biopsy.

    Anal canal adenoma is an extremely rare disease that has the potential to transform into a malignant tumor. We herein presented a rare case of metachronous multiple adenomas of the anal canal. A 48-year-old woman underwent total colonoscopy following a positive fecal blood test. A 9-mm villous polyp arising from the posterior wall of the anal canal was removed by snare polypectomy. Histologically, the tumor was tubulovillous adenoma with high-grade dysplasia and the cut end was negative for tumor cells. Six years later, an elevated lesion, macroscopically five millimeters in size, was detected in the left wall of the anal canal in a follow-up colonoscopy. Local excision of the tumor was performed, and the lesion was pathologically confirmed to be tubular adenoma with high-grade dysplasia limited to the mucosa. The patient is currently alive without any evidence of recurrence for six months after surgery. Although she had a past history of cervical cancer, the multiple tumors arising in the anal canal were unlikely to be related to human papilloma virus infection. Our case report underscores the importance of careful observations throughout colonoscopy to detect precancerous lesions, particularly in anatomically narrow segments. PMID:26249723

  8. All's Well That Ends Well: Shakespeare's treatment of anal fistula.

    1998-07-01

    Textual and contextual evidence suggests that the French king's fistula, a central plot device in Shakespeare's play All's Well That Ends Well, is a fistula-in-ano. Anal fistula was known to the lay public in Shakespeare's time. In addition, Shakespeare may have known of the anal fistula treatise of John Arderne, an ancestor on Shakespeare's mother's side. Shakespeare's use of anal fistula differs from all previous versions of the story, which first appeared in Boccaccio's Decameron and from its possible historical antecedent, the fistula of Charles V of France. This difference makes sense given the conventions of Elizabethan comedy, which included anal humor. It is also understandable when one looks at what wounds in different locations mean in European legend. In this light, it is not surprising that subsequent expurgations treat Boccaccio's and Shakespeare's fistulas differently, censoring only Shakespeare's. This reading has implications for the staging of All's Well That Ends Well, and for our view of the place of anal fistulas in cultural history.

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION: Imiquimod is a topical chemotherapic and immunostimulant agent with antitumoral and antiviral activities, used for anal condylomata acuminata treatment, mainly in recurrences. OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the imiquimod efficiency in chronic and recurrent anal condylomata acuminata in HIV-infected persons. METHOD: A prospective study that analyzed 61 patients with recurrent anal condylomata treated with topic 5% imiquimod, for at least 8 weeks. These patients had already been submitted to other topical and surgical treatments for anal warts. We evaluated the efficiency of this agent, through wart remission, with clinical examination and high-resolution anoscopy, CD4+ T lymphocyte count and side effects. The patients were 55 males and 6 females, from 22 to 63 years old. RESULTS: Remission was seen in 90%, being 46% complete remission and 44% partial remission. Other 10% did not respond to the treatment with imiquimod within the 16th week. Recurrences were observed in 11% of patients in 24-week follow-up. Statistics showed no differences in CD4+ T cell scores when groups with and without complete remission were compared. Adverse effects were reported by 45% of patients. They were mild to moderate burning (25%, intense burning (7%, ulcerative dermatitis (8% and systemic symptoms (5%. CONCLUSION: Imiquimod was effective in controlling recurrent anal condylomata acuminata in HIV-positive patients, regardless of CD4+ T cell count.INTRODUÇÃO: O imiquimode é agente tópico quimioterápico e imunoestimulante, com atividades antitumoral e antiviral, usado para tratamento dos condilomas acuminados perianais, principalmente os recidivantes.

    From 1966 to 1981, 47 patients with a diagnosis of anal carcinoma were irradiated. This group was composed of 23 males and 24 females, with age ranging from 38 to 84 years (average 64.4 years). Five patients were treated preoperatively and 34 were treated definitively with cancericidal doses of irradiation. Acute radiation reactions requiring a rest-break were noted in 28% of patients, but all were managed as outpatients without untoward chronic sequelae. Chronic complications were noted in 13 patients, including two patients who required colostomy for severe anal stenosis and two who required A-P resection for large painful ulcers. Twenty-eight of 35 patients (80%) treated with irradiation alone have remained locally controlled without further treatment. An additional four have been salvaged by surgery. Only three patients had interstitial implants as part of their treatment course. Actuarial survival at five years for the N/sub 0/ patients and the group as a whole are 95.6 and 79.3%, respectively. It is concluded that external beam irradiation alone, properly fractionated to cancericidal doses, can control anal carcinoma with acceptable morbidity rates and without the use of either chemotherapy or interstitial implants in most cases. There is also a strong correlation suggesting that anal intercourse and male homosexuality play a significant role in the etiology of this disease.

    Objective: To estimate a frequency of obstetric anal sphincters defects in women after vaginal delivery. Methods: The study included 102 women, aged from 16 to 40 years (mean age 28.6 years). 28 women had perineal lacerations of 3rd and 4th degree. 22 women had instrumental delivery. Anal endosonography was performed on all participants using BK Medical scanner Pro focus with a 3D endoprobe during the first week after delivery. Starck's classification was used to score sphincters defects. Results: The endosonographic images were abnormal in 8 out of 102 women (7.8%). Follow-up examinations after 6 weeks confirmed defects in 6 out of 102 women (5.8%). Five women had external anal sphincter torn, and 1 woman had both sphincters, internal and external, defected. Discordance between endosonographic diagnosis of defect and clinical assessment of sphincters continuity was demonstrated in 6 (5.9%) out of 8 initially found, including 2 (1.9%) false endosonographic results and 4 (3.9%) false clinical diagnosis (occult sphincter defects). The endosonography sensitivity and accuracy in sphincter defect diagnostic amounted to 100% and 98%, respectively. Conclusions: (1) Anal sphincters' tears in symptomatic women are not as frequent as it was believed. (2) The defect diagnosis in the first week after delivery should be verified by a follow-up endosonography in 6 weeks, after regression of the edema and hematoma.

    The longitudinal anal muscle (LAM) has been described as a vertical layer of muscular tissue interposed between the circular layers of the internal (IAS) and external (EAS) anal sphincters. There is, however, no general agreement in the literature on its composition and attachments. The aim of this study was to investigate the histological structure, attachments, and topography of the LAM in order to evaluate its role in continence and defecation, thus enhancing knowledge of the surgical anatomy of this region. After in situ formalin fixation, the pelvic viscera were removed from eight male and eight female cadavers (age range: 52-72 years). Serial macrosections of the bladder base, lower rectum and anal canal, cervix and pelvic floor complex, cut in the transverse (six specimens) and coronal (six specimens) planes, underwent histological and immunohistochemical studies. Four specimens were studied using the E12 sheet plastination technique. The LAM was identified in 10/12 specimens (83%). Transverse and coronal sections made clear that it is a longitudinal layer of muscular tissue, marking the boundary between the internal and external anal sphincters. From the anorectal junction it extends along the anal canal, receives fibers from the innermost part of the puborectalis and the puboanalis muscles, and terminates with seven to nine fibro-elastic septa, which traverse the subcutaneous part of the external anal sphincter, reaching the perianal dermis. In the transverse plane, the mean thickness of the LAM was 1.68 +/- 0.27 mm. Immunohistochemical staining showed that the LAM consists of predominantly outer striated muscle fibers and smaller numbers of inner smooth muscle fibers, respectively coming from the levator ani muscle and from the longitudinal muscular layer of the rectum. The oblique fibers suggest that the LAM may represent the intermediate longitudinal course of small bridging muscle bundles going reciprocally from the striated EAS to the smooth IAS and

    Full Text Available La escritura promueve en los sujetos la capacidad de razonar en y con el lenguaje: el metalenguaje (Ravid y Tolchinsky, 2002. Esta habilidad requiere de conocimientos lingüísticos y de habilidades cognitivas para un desarrollo acorde. Uno de los componentes centrales de la cognición es la capacidad de razonar en forma analógica (Goswami y Brown, 1990. El presente trabajo tiene como propósito indagar una posible relación entre ambas variables: producción textual y razonamiento analógico verbal. Para ello, se plantean dos objetivos: (a indagar acerca del razonamiento analógico verbal como una habilidad cognitiva a la base de la escritura de textos narrativos, y (b determinar la incidencia de esta habilidad en el metalenguaje. Así, se estudió un grupo de 258 escolares chilenos de tercer año de educación básica para establecer una correlación entre su nivel de razonamiento analógico y su nivel de producción de textos narrativos. Se aplicó una prueba de escritura y una prueba de razonamiento analógico verbal. Los resultados preliminares señalan que existe correlación entre ambas variables; sin embargo, se puede observar que algunos dominios específicos de la escritura parecen depender más de otros conocimientos que sólo del razonamiento analógico verbal.

    A non-healing peri-anal abscess can be difficult to manage and is often attributed to chronic disease. This case documents a male in his seventh decade who presented with multiple peri-anal collections. The abscess cavity had caused necrosis of the internal sphincter muscles resulting in faecal incontinence. Biopsies were conclusive for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. A de-functioning colostomy was performed and the patient was initiated on CHOP-R chemotherapy. Anal lymphoma masquerading as a peri-anal abscess is rare. A high degree of suspicion must be maintained for an anal abscess which does not resolve with conservative management. PMID:24898408

  19. Human papillomavirus, anal cancer, and screening considerations among HIV-infected individuals.

    2013-01-01

    Invasive anal cancer has become an important cause of non AIDS-related cancer among HIV-infected individuals. Human papillomavirus is the main etiological agent. This review explains the pathophysiologic role of human papillomavirus in the development of invasive anal cancer, summarizes recent epidemiological trends of invasive anal cancer, and reviews the evidence to address common clinical questions posed when screening for anal cancer in HIV-infected patients. The effect of highly active antiretroviral therapy on human papillomavirus oncogenesis is still unclear, but given the increased clinical burden of invasive anal cancer among HIV-infected patients, many clinics have implemented screening programs for anal cancer and its precursors. Despite the availability of several modalities for treatment of precursors of anal cancer, evidence that current treatment modalities favorably alter the natural history of human papillomavirus oncogenesis in the anal and perianal regions is still inconclusive. However, there is sufficient evidence to state that the accuracy of anal cancer screening procedures (cytology and high-resolution anoscopy directed biopsy) is comparable to the accuracy of those used in screening for cervical cancer precursors. Studies that systematically assess the efficacy of these anal cancer screening programs in reducing the incidence of and morbidity and mortality from invasive anal cancer among HIV-infected patients are needed.

    Full Text Available Esta investigación sobre los mecanismos de censura del Santo Oficio en las obras narrativas e históricas de Pablo de Olavide y en la historia de la Inquisición en Chile de José Toribio Medina consta de dos apartados. En el primero, se va más allá del punto de vista de la censura como mera operación impersonal y se indaga, a partir de las nociones psicoanalíticas de perversión y neurosis en las estructuras libidinales de los sujetos de los enunciados en el conjunto completo de escritura, prohibición y autoprohibición inscrito a lo largo de la trayectoria final de la producción de Olavide. Se indica en qué sentido puede calificarse al inquisidor como perverso y se ensayan dos esquemas de organización del deseo en la enunciación de los textos póstumos: separación y perversión. Una tercera tentativa estipula que la no publicación de las novelas responde a una represión neurótica de los potenciales estratégicos subversivos de la escritura – lectura (perversa entre líneas. Un segundo apartado mostrará cómo el análisis de la obra de Olavide en los términos recién indicados ofrece una tipología que permite ordenar el registro de casos que José Toribio Medina consigna en su Historia del tribunal del Santo Oficio de la Inquisición en Chile. Si es cierto que la censura sigue padeciéndose o bien incorporándose creativamente en la escritura del peruano, ésta puede dar con algunas constantes de la descripción que hace Medina de la Inquisición chilena, subsidiaria de la peruana. Tal ejercicio cobra relevancia para el ámbito chileno si se tiene en cuenta que la administración de lo social según ciertas oposiciones fundamentales se proyectará invertida o reflexivamente en la organización de la represión que se diseñará en el estado nacional naciente.

    We report a case of isolated gastrointestinal metastasis from breast lobular carcinoma, which mimicked primary anal cancer. In July 2000, an 88-year-old woman presented with infiltrating lobular cancer (pT1/G2/N2). The patient received postoperative radiotherapy and hormonal therapy. Four years later,she presented with an anal polypoid lesion. The mass was removed for biopsy. Immunohistochemical staining suggested a breast origin. Radiotherapy was chosen for this patient, which resulted in complete regression of the lesion. The patient died 3 years after the first manifestation of gastrointestinal metastasis.According to the current literature, we consider the immunohistochemistry features that are essential to support the suspicion of gastrointestinal breast metastasis, and since we consider the gastrointestinal involvement as a sign of systemic disease, the therapy should be less aggressive and systemic.

  8. Endosonographic appearance of the anal sphincters in patients following colostomy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Background. The aim of the study was to visualize, by anal ultrasound (AUS), the suspected defects of the anal sphincters in the patients after colostomy and to analyze possible factors that could have led to such defects. Patients and methods. AUS, using a 7.0 MHz endorectal probe, was performed in a group of 25 patients with colostomy. The internal anal sphincter (IAS), external anal sphincter (EAS) and puborectalis muscle (PR) were visualized and the defects within them were qualified and quantified. For statistical analysis, the analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used. Results. The IAS was thin in all but three patients (22 patients; 88 %) with the mean thickness of 1.62 mm. A circular reduction of the thickness along the entire length of the IAS was seen in 20 patients (90.9 %). The echogenicity of the IAS was increased in 15 patients (60 %), and in 10 of them (66.6%), this defect embraced the whole length and circumference of the IAS. The margins of the IAS were not well-defined in 10 patients (40%). A significant correlation was found between the length of the patient's life with the stoma and the IAS echogenicity defect (p-value = 0.0001). No significant correlation was found between the dynamic examination, the IAS thickness and the IAS borders definition. Conclusion. The reduced thickness, increased echogenicity and borders definition defect of the IAS are seen in the patients after colostomy. The only significant correlation was confirmed between the length of the patient's life with the stoma and the IAS echogenicity defect. (author)

  9. Carcinoma of the anal sac glands in ranch mink.

    1985-05-01

    During a 14-year period, carcinoma of the anal sac apocrine glands was found in 52 pastel and 8 sapphire mink (Mustela vison) kept for studies on slow viral diseases. The pastel mink varied in age from 72 to 135 months (mean age 108 months), the sapphire mink from 63 to 100 months (mean age 81 months). All but one pastel mink were females. The primary tumor varied in size from masses that caused bulges in the perineum to those that were found only after microscopic examination of the anal sac glands. Although the primary tumor grew mainly by expansion with little local infiltration, 41 of the 60 tumors had metastasized to the regional lymph nodes and sometimes also to more distant sites. The striking propensity of the carcinoma to metastasize while still small, even microscopic, often resulted in massive secondary growths, notably in the iliac lymph nodes. Hypercalcemia did not accompany the carcinoma. Its varied microscopic appearance included solid, glandular, squamous cell, and spindle or round cell components. Combinations of them formed mixed or complex histologic patterns, no doubt largely attributable to neoplastic proliferation of myoepithelial cells and squamous metaplasia of the apocrine gland epithelium. Although its cause remains obscure, the carcinoma appeared to arise from small foci of hyperplastic apocrine glands, sometimes in relation to both anal sacs. The tumor is a common and distinctive expression of neoplasia in older ranch mink.

    Anal intercourse poses a greater risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transmission than vaginal intercourse, and in recent years there has been a growing understanding that heterosexual anal intercourse (HAI) is not uncommon. However, the majority of the anal intercourse literature has focused on men who have sex with men. The little research on HAI has mostly looked at women, with limited work among men. This analysis examined the association between HAI and high-risk behaviors (N = 1,622) and sexual sensation seeking (N = 239) in a sample of men recruited from 2001 to 2012 in Long Beach, California. Almost half of the sample was non-Hispanic Black. The median age was 42 years, 42% were homeless, and 20% reported recent HAI. Men who reported HAI were likely to be Hispanic, were likely to be homeless, had a male partner, engaged in sex exchange, and used cocaine or amphetamines during sex. Men who reported HAI scored higher on the Sexual Sensation Seeking scale. This research supports other work showing the relationship between HAI and high-risk behaviors. More important, it contributes new knowledge by demonstrating the association between HAI and sexual sensation seeking. This research highlights the importance of personality traits when trying to understand sexual behavior and when developing HIV prevention interventions. PMID:24024565

    Research Highlights: Human papillomaviruses cause anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN). Digital image processing was carried out to classify the grades of AIN quantitatively. The fractal dimension as well as grey value statistics was calculated. Higher grades of AIN yielded higher values of the fractal dimension. An automatic detection system is feasible. - Abstract: It is well known that human papillomaviruses (HPV) induce a variety of tumorous lesions of the skin. HPV-subtypes also cause premalignant lesions which are termed anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN). The clinical classification of AIN is of growing interest in clinical practice, due to increasing HPV infection rates throughout human population. The common classification approach is based on subjective inspections of histological slices of anal tissues with all the drawbacks of depending on the status and individual variances of the trained pathologists. Therefore, a nonlinear quantitative classification method including the calculation of the fractal dimension and first order as well as second order image statistical parameters was developed. The absolute values of these quantitative parameters reflected the distinct grades of AIN very well. The quantitative approach has the potential to decrease classification errors significantly and it could be used as a widely applied screening technique.

    2016-03-01

    The prevalence of anal intraepithelial neoplasia has been increasing, especially in high-risk patients, including men who have sex with men, human immunodeficiency virus positive patients, and those who are immunosuppressed. Several studies with long-term follow-up have suggested that rate of progression from high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions to invasive anal cancer is ∼ 5%. This number is considerably higher for those at high risk. Anal cytology has been used to attempt to screen high-risk patients for disease; however, it has been shown to have very little correlation to actual histology. Patients with lesions should undergo history and physical exam including digital rectal exam and standard anoscopy. High-resolution anoscopy can be considered as well, although it is of questionable time and cost-effectiveness. Nonoperative treatments include expectant surveillance and topical imiquimod or 5-fluorouracil. Operative therapies include wide local excision and targeted ablation with electrocautery, infrared coagulation, or cryotherapy. Recurrence rates remain high regardless of treatment delivered and surveillance is paramount, although optimal surveillance regimens have yet to be established. PMID:26929753

    2013-01-01

    Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia (AIN) is an increasingly common condition for which the best treatment has not been well established. Traditional management was based on a 'watch and wait' strategy, but as the natural history of AIN and its progression to anal cancer is becoming better understood, more active treatment strategies are warranted. A best evidence topic in surgery was written according to a structured protocol to address the question whether treatment is indicated in patients with AIN. A total of 169 papers were identified using the defined search criteria. This included only one randomised controlled trial. Case series were therefore also included to help answer the question. The details of the papers were tabulated including relevant outcomes and study weaknesses. We conclude that treatment of high grade AIN, particularly in high risk groups is recommended to try to avoid progression to anal cancer. Treatment options that have shown some benefit include topical use of imiquimod cream or ablation directed by high resolution anoscopy. PMID:23643642

    Heterosexual anal sex is underresearched and little understood, particularly in the African context. Existing prevalence data indicate that heterosexual anal sex is a widespread practice, yet little is known about the way in which it is conceptualized and understood. Describing findings from qualitative research conducted in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda, we shed light on conceptualizations of heterosexual anal sex and its relation to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). These findings suggest that penile-anal sex is practiced by men and women in Africa for a range of reasons, including virginity maintenance, contraception, fulfillment of male pleasure, relationship security, menstruation, in the presence of vaginal complications, financial gain, fidelity, and prestige. Despite anal sex being the most efficient way to transmit HIV sexually, there is widespread lack of knowledge about its risks. These findings describe the ways in which anal sex is conceptualized in five East African communities, highlighting how penile-anal intercourse is often not considered "sex" and how the omission of anal sex in safe-sex messaging is interpreted as meaning that anal sex is safe. In light of its frequency and risks, greater attention must be paid to heterosexual anal sex in Africa to ensure a comprehensive approach to HIV prevention.

    Full Text Available Squamous anal cell carcinoma is a rare malignancy that represents the 1.5% to 2% of all the lower digestive tract cancers. However, an increased incidence of invasive anal carcinoma is observed in HIV-seropositive population since the widespread of highly active antiretroviral therapy. Human papillomavirus is strongly associated with the pathogenesis of anal cancer. Anal intercourse and a high number of sexual partners appear to be risk factors to develop anal cancer in both sexes. Anal pain, bleeding and a palpable lesion in the anal canal are the most common clinical features. Endo-anal ultrasound is the best diagnosis method to evaluate the tumor size, the tumor extension and the infiltration of the sphincter muscle complex. Chemoradiotherapy plus antiretroviral therapy are the recommended treatments for all stages of localized squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal in HIV-seropositive patients because of its high rate of cure. Here we present an HIV patient who developed a carcinoma of the anal canal after a long time of HIV infection under highly active antiretroviral therapy with a good virological and immunological response.

    Zan Peng; Yan Guozheng; Liu Hua

    2008-01-01

    For controlling anal incontinence, a new artificial anal sphincter system (AASS) with sensor feedback based on transcutaneous energy transmission is developed. The device mainly comprises an artificial anal sphincter (AAS), a wireless power supply subsystem, and a communication subsystem. The artificial anal sphincter comprises a front cuff and a sensor cuff placed around the rectum, a reservoir sited in abdominal cavity and a micropump controlling inflation and deflation of the front cuff. There are two pressure sensors in the artificial anal sphincter. One can measure the pressure in the front cuff to clamp the rectum, the other in the sensor cuff can measure the pressure of the rectum. Wireless power supply subsystem includes a resonance transmit coil to transmit an alternating magnetic field and a secondary coil to receive the power. Wireless communication subsystem can transmit the pressure information of the artificial anal sphincter to the monitor, or send the control commands to the artificial anal sphincter. A prototype is designed and the basic function of the artificial anal sphincter system has been tested through experiments. The results demonstrate that the artificial anal sphincter system can control anal incontinence effectively.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: O sexo anal sem o uso do preservativo masculino é um importante fator de risco para a infecção por HIV e outras doenças sexualmente transmissíveis. OBJETIVO: Investigar fatores individuais e sociais que se relacionam ao sexo anal desprotegido entre homens que se autodeclararam HIV negativos e que fizeram sexo anal com parceiros HIV positivos ou de sorologia desconhecida. METODOLOGIA: Este estudo é parte de um inquérito sociocomportamental entre homens que fazem sexo com homens (HSH, a coleta de dados foi on-line no site do projeto Convida. A amostra deste estudo foi de 487 HSH. A análise descritiva precedeu a análise bivariada com o uso do teste Χ2. Para a modelagem utilizou-se a regressão logística. RESULTADOS: Praticaram sexo anal desprotegido com parceiro HIV positivo ou de sorologia desconhecida no último ano 30,8% dos participantes, sendo a maioria de classes sociais mais elevadas, brancos e solteiros. Os fatores que se associaram à prática do sexo anal sem proteção foram: ter mais de três parceiros no último ano (OR=1,7; IC95% 1,1-2,7, autopercepção de alto ou médio risco para adquirir HIV/Aids (OR=2,7; IC95% 1,5-3,6 e gostar de sexo oral passivo (OR=0,3; IC95% 0,2-0,8. CONCLUSÃO: O sexo anal desprotegido é uma prática frequente entre os HSH entrevistados. A frequência a banheiros públicos deve ser explorada enquanto fator de risco para o envolvimento no sexo anal sem proteção. Outros estudos on-line são necessários e importantes para o entendimento dessas relações e do envolvimento em práticas sexuais arriscadas para infecção por HIV entre HSH.INTRODUCTION: Unprotected anal sex (insertive or receptive is an important risk factor for HIV infection and other STDs.

    The purpose of this study was to measure the internal and external anal sphincters using translabial ultrasound (TLU) at the proximal, mid, and distal levels of the anal sphincter complex. The human review committee approval was obtained and all women gave written informed consent. Sixty women presenting for gynecologic ultrasound for symptoms other than pelvic organ prolapse or urinary or anal incontinence underwent TLU. Thirty-six (60%) were asymptomatic and intact, 13 symptomatic and intact, and 11 disrupted. Anterior-posterior diameters of the internal anal sphincter at all levels and the external anal sphincter at the distal level were measured in four quadrants. Mean sphincter measurements are given for symptomatic and asymptomatic intact women and are comparable to previously reported endoanal MRI and ultrasound measurements. PMID:17221149

    Restorative proctocolectomy with various types of reservoir is widely used in the elective surgery of ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis. Both, advantages and disadvantages of this procedure are well known and documented. Straight ileo-anal anastomosis (IAA) yields unsatisfactory clinical results due to the lack of storage capacity of the distal ileum and the frequency of bowel movements related to high pressure ileal waves. In an attempt to create an alternative to the above procedures, we have performed a straight ileo-anal anastomosis with two rectangular (10 cm x 1 cm) myectomies down to 2 cm, above the anastomotic line. The two myectomies are spaced at 120 degrees to each other and to the mesenteric border of the ileal loop. The rationale of this approach is to reduce the peristaltic drive of the ileum by weakening the muscular wall. This study presents the results in three patients operated on with this new method in the last year.

  4. Identifying the best therapy for chronic anal fissure

    Chronic anal fissure(CAF)is a painful tear or crack which occurs in the anoderm.The optimal algorithm of therapy for CAF is still debated.Lateral internal sphincterotomy(LIS)is a surgical treatment,considered as the’gold standard’therapy for CAF.It relieves CAF symptoms with a high rate of healing.Chemical sphincterotomy(CS)with nitrates,calcium blockers or botulinum toxin(BTX)is safe,with the rapid relief of pain,mild sideeffects and no risk of surgery or anesthesia,but is a statistically less effective therapy for CAF than LIS.This article considers if aggressive treatment should only be offered to patients who fail pharmacological sphincterotomy.Aspects of anal fissure etiology,epidemiology and pathophysiology are considered with their meaning for further management of CAF.A molecular model of chemical interdependence significant for the chemistry of CAF healing is examined.Its application may influence the development of optimal therapy for CAF.BTX is currently considered the most effective type of CS and discussion in this article scrutinizes this method specifically.Although the effectiveness of BTXvs LIS has been discussed,the essential focus of the article concerns identifying the best therapy application for anal fissure.Elements are presented which may help us to predict CAF healing.They provide rationale for the expansion of the CAF therapy algorithm.Ethical and economic factors are also considered in brief.As long as the patient is willing to accept the potential risk of fecal incontinence,we have grounds for the’gold standard’(LIS)as the first-line treatment for CAF.The author concludes that,when the diagnosis of the anal fissure is established,CS should be considered for both ethical and economic reasons.He is convinced that a greater understanding and recognition of benign anal disorders by the GP and a proactive involvement at the point of initial diagnosis would facilitate the consideration of CS at an earlier,more practical stage with

    The incidence of anal cancer is elevated in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM) compared to the general population. Anal high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL) are common in HIV-infected MSM and the presumed precursors to anal squamous cell cancer; however, direct progression of HSIL to anal cancer has not been previously demonstrated. The medical records were reviewed of 138 HIV-infected MSM followed up at the University of California, San Francisco, who developed anal canal or perianal squamous cancer between 1997 and 2011. Men were followed up regularly with digital anorectal examination (DARE), high-resolution anoscopy (HRA) and HRA-guided biopsy. Although treatment for HSIL and follow-up were recommended, not all were treated and some were lost to follow-up. Prevalent cancer was found in 66 men. Seventy-two HIV-infected MSM developed anal cancer while under observation. In 27 men, anal cancer developed at a previously biopsied site of HSIL. An additional 45 men were not analyzed in this analysis due to inadequate documentation of HSIL in relation to cancer location. Of the 27 men with documented progression to cancer at the site of biopsy-proven HSIL, 20 men progressed from prevalent HSIL identified when first examined and seven men from incident HSIL. Prevalent HSIL progressed to cancer over an average of 57 months compared to 64 months for incident HSIL. Most men were asymptomatic, and cancers were detected by DARE. Anal HSIL has clear potential to progress to anal cancer in HIV-infected MSM. Early diagnosis is facilitated by careful follow-up. Carefully controlled studies evaluating efficacy of screening for and treatment of HSIL to prevent anal cancer are needed. PMID:23934991

    Full Text Available In the last years, the prevalence of HPV infection in the anal region has increased, especially in some groups like homosexual and HIV-positive people. Since this infection can be associated with the development of squamous anal cancer due to its progression from HPV infection to anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN and finally to cancer, the screening and evaluation of these conditions are important. Anal cytology and high resolution anoscopy are good methods that are available and can be used. Although useful, these methods should be performed correctly and not indiscriminately in all patients. Patients for whom anal cytology screening is recommended are: HIV-infected patients, homosexuals, women who present with high-grade vulvar squamous intraepithelial neoplasia, vulvar cancer or cervical cancer. An abnormal anal cytology should be further evaluated with high resolution anoscopy.

    The effects of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) on the internal anal sphincter were studied in anaesthesized rats. Serotonin induced a dose dependent relaxation of the internal anal sphincter. Methysergide blocked this relaxation, but did not affect the rectoanal reflex. Methysergide did not antagonise the actions of cholinergic and adrenergic agonists on the internal anal sphincter. Other 5-HT antagonists such as cyproheptadine, ketanserin, chlorpromazine, amitriptyline and ergotamine f...

  13. Modelo analítico del efecto de PRS sobre satélites GPS

    Meza, A.; Brunini, C.; Usandivaras, J. C.

    El sistema GPS (Global Position System) es, hoy en día, la herramienta de navegación y posicionamiento más potente y lo será sin duda en la próxima década. Gran parte de su valiosa utilidad se debe a la alta precisión que permite lograr y ésta, a su vez, depende, entre otras causas, de la precisión con que se conocen las órbitas de los satélites. La presión de radiación solar (PRS) fija el límite de la precisión con que pueden calcularse en la actualidad las efemérides satelitarias. El objetivo de este trabajo es proponer una mejor resolución de este fenómeno. El modelo analítico aquí presentado, se basa en el análisis del comportamiento de los residuos de un ajuste por mínimos cuadrados en el que se utiliza el modelo de PRS propuesto por Beutler. El mismo consiste en un modelo determinista del fenómeno con dos parámetros libres. Los resultados obtenidos ponen de manifiesto que, aún después de aplicar dichos parámetros, prevalecen en los residuos efectos semidiurnos en las componentes radial,tangencial y normal. Estos resultados obtenidos se comparan con los de un trabajo desarrollado por el Instituto de Berne (Beutler et al., 1994), en el que se utilizaron como pseudo-observaciones las órbitas precisas del IGS (CODE). El intervalo de integración escogido por este centro fueron las semanas 680 y 681. En resumen se tienen arcos de 14 días para todos los satélites, donde las efemérides precisas de los mismos para los 14 días fueron utilizados como pseudo-observaciones. El modelo de fuerza que empleó dicho centro fue básicamente el tradicional en lo que respecta al modelo de las fuerzas gravitacionales, y para la PRS utilizo el modelo standard de Beutler. Los parámetros de este modelo junto con las 6 condiciones iniciales (posición y velocidad) fueron ajustados por el método general de mínimos cuadrados. Los residuos en la componente radial, tangencial y normal, para los satélites con un buen comportamiento, presentan una

    2016-01-01

    HIV-infected men who have sex with men (MSM) have the highest rates of anal dysplasia and anal cancer when compared to HIV-uninfected MSM and when compared to HIV-infected heterosexual men and women. Despite significantly increasing rates of anal dysplasia and anal cancer in HIV-infected MSM, in many settings, no standard protocol is in place to screen for anal dysplasia in this high-risk group. A practice improvement project was conducted at a primary care health center to educate the HIV health care team about anal Pap screening in an effort to increase provider knowledge and rates of anal Pap screening performed as part of primary comprehensive care for HIV-infected MSM. Increased health care provider knowledge of anal Pap screening within this setting resulted in increased anal Pap screening for HIV-infected MSM. Routine screening leads to improved surveillance and treatment of precancerous lesions, decreasing morbidity and mortality in HIV-infected MSM.

    Among the 63 patients with histopathologically proven primary squamous cell anal cancer who were managed in Presbyterian Medical Center and Yonsei University Cancer from Jan. 1971 to Dec. 1991, 34 patients, who were managed with surgery alone (abdominoperineal resection) or post-operative radiotherapy and concurrent chemoradiotherapy were analyzed. With mean follow up time of 81.3 months, 30 patients (88%) were followed up from 17 to 243 months. In methods, 10 patients were treated with surgery alone. 9 patients were treated with combined surgery and postoperative radiotherapy (59{approx}60 Gy in 28{approx}30 fractions). 15 patients were treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy. Chemotherapy (Mitomycin C 15 mg/squ, bolus injection day 1;5-FU, 750 mg/squ, 24hr infusion, day 1 to 5) and radiotherapy started the same day. A dose of 30 Gy was given to the tumor and to the pelvis including inguinal nodes, in 15 fractions. After 2 weeks a boost of radiotherapy (20 Gy) to the ano-perineal area and second cycle of chemotherapy completed the treatment. The overall 50 year survival rate was 56.2%. concurrent chemoradiotherapy group was 70% and surgery alone group was 16.7%. According to the cox proportional harzard model, there was significant different between survival with concurrent chemoradiotherapy and surgery alone (p=0.0129), but post-operative radiotherapy was 64.8%, which was not statically significant (p=0.1412). In concurrent chemoradiotherapy group, the anal function preservation rate was 87% and the severe complication rate (grade 3 stenosis and incontinence) was 13.3%. In conclusion, we conclude that the concurrent chemoradiotherapy may be effective treatment modality in patients with anal cancer.

  19. Role of intracellular calcium in contraction of internal anal sphincter

    1999-01-01

    @@ INTRODUCTION Internal anal sphincter (IAS) is a continuation of the smooth circular muscle layer thickened at the rectum, innervated by vegetative nerve. IAS is a special smooth muscle, which is different from colonic smooth muscle in physiology and pharmaology[1]. It was found that contraction of gastric smooth muscle depends on the influx of extracellular calcium and release of intracellular calcium[2]. In present study, we observed and compared the effects of extra- and intracellular calcium on the contraction of IAS and colonic smooth muscle.

    Proctectomy is one of the most important operative phases of ileal pouch-anal anastomosis. It allows complete resection of the rectal mucosa and determines the quality of the postoperative course and the functional results. Two procedures are described, either with a distal rectal mucosectomy or complete resection of the rectal wall as far as the pectinate line. Functional results are identical. The second procedure leads to a complete resection of the rectal mucosa and therefore will be indicated in cases of low rectal cancer of dysplasia when the anus can be preserved. PMID:8161140

    Tailgut cysts, embryological remnants of the hindgut, are rare retrorectal tumours. They have been described in adults but are rare in children, especially neonates. We report a case of a neonate, who presented with anal stenosis and an incidental ultrasonographic finding of a presacral mass. Excision and histological examination of the mass confirmed the appearance of a tailgut cyst. There were no postoperative complications and no evidence of recurrence of the presacral mass over one year after excision. The clinical, pathological, and radiological findings of the tailgut cyst are described with a review of the literature. PMID:15211416

    Full Text Available Uma solução analítica foi desenvolvida, para avaliar sulcos abertos e em declive, com base na teoria de Balanço de Volume de Walker e Skogerboe (1987. Essa metodologia é capaz de obter, matematicamente, a performance de um sistema, dispensando a construção de gráficos que definem os parâmetros de avaliação. A solução matemática é baseada no ajuste de equações ao modelo potencial, no cálculo das áreas sob as curvas definidas no ajuste e na intercessão de curvas, obtendo-se, assim, a performance de sistemas de irrigação por sulcos abertos e em declive. Para validação da metodologia, foi realizado um experimento de campo, na Fazenda Experimental da Universidade Federal do Ceará, situada no município de Pentecoste, pertencente ao Centro de Ciências Agrárias. Os dados de campo foram submetidos à análise pelas duas metodologias. Os resultados mostraram que a metodologia analítica pode ser usada para avaliar a irrigação por sulcos abertos e em declive.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Objective: To evaluate the accuracy and clinical value of preoperative high-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with a phased-army coil for the detection of anal fistulas. Methods: A total of 20 patients with surgically proved anal fistulas underwent preoperative MR imaging with phased-array coil at 1.5 T MR unit. The imaging protocol included high-resolution T2-weighted turbo spin echo sequence acquisition at axial, sagittal and coronal planes and axial T2-weighted sequence with fat suppression. Results: Twenty patients were found to have 27 fistulas, 24 internal openings, 28 external openings, and 10 perianal abcesses. The sensitivity and specificity for detecting primary fistula tracks, abscesses and internal openings were 92.6% (25/27) and 92.3% (12/13), 100.0% (10/10) and 96.3% (26/27), 91.7% (22/24) and 85.7% (12/14), respectively. Conclusion: High-resolution Mil imaging is a very accurate preoperative technique for evaluating the classification of fistula-in-ano, the course of primary tracks and the presence of abscesses, thus providing important information for proper surgical treatment.

    Full Text Available Background: chronic anal fissure is one of the most frequent proctological disorders in Western populations. Open lateral internal sphincterotomy is one of the therapeutic options accepted as the treatment of choice for chronic anal fissure, since it reduces the hypertonia of the internal anal sphincter (the main etiopathogenic mechanism of fissures, decreases anal pain, and allows the fissure to heal. Material and methods: we carried out a prospective study of 120 patients operated on for chronic anal fissure with open sphincterotomy under local anesthesia at our Proctology Outpatient Unit from 1998 to 2001. No preoperative studies, bowel preparation, or antibiotic prophylaxis were carried out. All patients were followed up after 1 week, 2 months, 6 months, and 1 year, and underwent an anal manometry before and after surgery. Results: early complications: 3 hematoma-ecchymosis of the wound (2.5%, 3 self-limited hemorrhage events (2.5%. No hemorrhoidal thrombosis, fistulas, or perianal abscesses occurred. Fissures recurred in nine patients (7.5% within one year. The initial rate of incontinence of 7.5% at two months dropped down to 5% at six months. The mean resting pressure (MRP in incontinent patients was lower than in continent patients (55±7 mmHg versus 80.7 ± 21 mmHg. The difference in mean squeeze pressure (MSP between incontinent patients and continent patients was not statistically significant. Conclusions: open sphincterotomy under local anesthesia has a long-term rate of healing and a morbidity rate similar to other techniques. It may therefore be considered an effective treatment for chronic anal fissure.Introducción: la fisura anal crónica sigue siendo uno de los problemas proctológicos más frecuentes e incapacitantes en la población occidental actual.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACTIntroduction:Incidence rates of anal cancer have been rising worldwide in the last 20 years. Due to embryological, histological and immunohistochemical similarities between the anal canal and the cervix, routine screening with anal cytology for precursor lesions in high-risk groups has been adopted. Objective: To determine interobserver agreement for the diagnosis of anal neoplasia by anal cytology.Material and methods:A cross-sectional observational study was conducted in 324 women with cervical intraepithelial or invasive cancers, for screening of anal cancer, from December 2008 to June 2009. Three hundred twenty-four cytological samples were analyzed by three cytopathologists. Cytological evaluation was based on the revised Bethesda terminology; samples were also classified into negative and positive for atypical cells. We calculated the kappa statistic with 95% confidence interval (95% CI to assess agreement among the three cytopathologists.Results:Interobserver agreement in the five categories of the Bethesda terminology was moderate (kappa for multiple raters: 0.6. Agreement among cytopathologists 1, 2 and 3 with a consensus diagnosis was strong (kappa: 0.71, 0.85 and 0.82, respectively.Conclusion:Interobserver agreement in anal cytology was moderate to strong, indicating that cervical cytomorphological criteria are reproducible also in anal samples.

    This study was conducted to provide normal reference features for canine and feline anal sacs using ultrasound, low-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and radiograph contrast as diagnostic imaging tools. A total of ten clinically normal beagle dogs and eight clinically normally cats were included. General radiography with contrast, ultrasonography and low-field MRI scans were performed. The visualization of anal sacs, which are located at distinct sites in dogs and cats, is possible with a contrast study on radiography. Most surfaces of the anal sacs tissue, occasionally appearing as a hyperechoic thin line, were surrounded by the hypoechoic external sphincter muscle on ultrasonography. The normal anal sac contents of dogs and cats had variable echogenicity. Signals of anal sac contents on low-field MRI varied in cats and dogs, and contrast medium using T1-weighted images enhanced the anal sac walls more obviously than that on ultrasonography. In conclusion, this study provides the normal features of anal sacs from dogs and cats on diagnostic imaging. Further studies including anal sac evaluation are expected to investigate disease conditions. PMID:26645338

    2011-12-01

    The incidence of anal squamous cell carcinoma has increased alarmingly, particularly in high-risk groups such as men who have sex with men and immunosuppressed patients. Infection with an oncogenic strain of the human papillomavirus in the anal canal or perianal skin leads to anal intraepithelial neoplasias (AIN), progressive dysplastic intraepithelial lesions that are the precursors of anal squamous cell carcinoma. AIN can be diagnosed through cytological screening and biopsy guided by high-resolution anoscopy and can be treated using a range of procedures in an effort to prevent progression to invasive anal carcinoma. Given the recent advances in the understanding of this disease, and the increasing calls from experts for the establishment of screening programs to identify AIN, we review current knowledge on the condition, its diagnosis, and treatment from the point of view of dermatology.

    Full Text Available Objective: The anal sex among heterosexual couples is on the rise as reported in many scientific studies. Considering that unprotected anal sex has higher risk of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV transmission than the vaginal sex, we undertook a study to understand the anal sex practices among Female Sex Workers (FSW. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted among FSW attending 11 randomly selected sexually transmitted infection (STI clinics in Bill and Melinda Gates supported targeted interventions in Andhra Pradesh. A structured questionnaire was administered to the 555 FSW attending these clinics by project clinic counselors. Informed consent was obtained from all the study participants. Results: Engaging in anal sex was self reported by 22% of sex workers, though demand from clients was reported to be much higher (40%. The reasons for anal sex practices included more money (61%, clout/influence of the client (45%, risk of losing client (27%, and forced sex (1.2%. Factors associated with anal sex were higher number of clients, higher duration of sex work, higher income, and older age group. Associated risks perceived by FSW were bleeding and injury to anal canal (98% while only 28% associated it with higher HIV transmission risk. Reported Condom and lubricant use was about 88% and 39% respectively. Conclusion: The study shows that there is frequent anal sex, inconsistent condom and infrequent lubricant usage, economic and physical coercion, and low awareness of STI/HIV transmission risk among FSW, which have serious implications for HIV prevention programmes. There is a need to focus on anal sex education and use of lubricants along with condoms during anal sex in FSW-targeted interventions in AP.

    Full Text Available The standard treatment approach for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC of the anal canal includes abdominoperineal resection and chemoradiotherapy. However, there are currently very few reports of early SCC of the anal canal resected by endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD. We report 2 rare cases of SCC of the anal canal resected by ESD. In case 1, a 66-year-old woman underwent a colonoscopy due to blood in her stool, and an elevated lesion, 15 mm in size, was identified from the rectum to the dentate line of the anal canal on internal hemorrhoids. The lesion was diagnosed as an early SCC of the anal canal, and ESD was successfully performed. The histopathological diagnosis was SCC in situ. In case 2, a 71-year-old woman underwent a colonoscopy due to constipation, and an elevated lesion, 25 mm in size, was identified from the dentate line to the anal canal. The lesion was diagnosed as early-stage SCC of the anal canal, and ESD was successfully performed. The histopathological diagnosis was SCC in situ. No complications or recurrence after ESD occurred in either case.

    2014-07-01

    HIV-infected individuals are 28 times more likely than the general population to be diagnosed with anal cancer. An integrative review of recommendations and guidelines for anal cancer screening was performed to provide a succinct guide to inform healthcare clinicians. The review excluded studies that were of non-HIV populations, redundant articles or publications, non-English manuscripts, or nonclinical trials. The review found no formal national or international guidelines exist for routine screening of anal cancer for HIV-infected individuals. To date, no randomized control trial provides strong evidence supporting efficaciousness and effectiveness of an anal cancer screening program. The screening recommendations from seven international-, national-, and state-based reports were reviewed and synthesized in this review. These guidelines suggest anal cancer screening, albeit unproven, may be beneficial at decreasing the incidence of anal cancer. This review highlights the paucity of screening-related research and is an area of need to provide clear direction and to define standard of care for anal cancer screening in HIV-infected persons.

    1998-01-01

    AIM To detect the presence of HPV DNA and study the alteration of p53 expression in anal cancers in Chinese.METHODS HPV DNA was amplified by PCR. The amplified HPV DNA was classified by DBH. HPV antigen and p53 expression were respectively detected by immunohistochemistry.RESULTS HPV DNA was amplified only in one case of squamous cell carcinoma of the 72 Chinese anal cancers and further classified as HPV type 16. Others were all HPV negative. HPV antigen and p53 expression were also detected in this case. Positive stainings with anti-p53 antibody were seen in 61.2% anal cancers. There were no statistically significant differences between anal squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas and between anal adenocarcinomas and rectal adenocarcinomas. p53 protein expression was observed in the basal cells of squamous epithelium of condyloma acuminatum and morphologically normal squamous epithelium in 2 cases invaded by anal adenocarcinoma.CONCLUSION HPV infection was not associated with these cases of anal cancer. p53 alteration was a common event. Positive p53 immunostaining can not be regarded as a marker for differentiating benign from malignant lesions.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Anal HPV infection, which contributes to the development of anal warts and anal cancer, is well known to be common among men who have sex with men (MSM, especially among those HIV positives. However, HIV and anal HPV co-infection among MSM has not been addressed in China. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Beijing and Tianjin, China. Study participants were recruited using multiple methods with the collaboration of local volunteer organizations. Blood and anal swabs were collected for HIV-1 serological test and HPV genotyping. RESULTS: A total of 602 MSM were recruited and laboratory data were available for 578 of them (96.0%. HIV and anal HPV prevalence were 8.5% and 62.1%, respectively. And 48 MSM (8.3% were found to be co-infected. The HPV genotypes identified most frequently were HPV06 (19.6%, HPV16 (13.0%, HPV52 (8.5% and HPV11 (7.6%. Different modes of HPV genotypes distribution were observed with respect to HIV status. A strong dose-response relationship was found between HIV seropositivity and multiplicity of HPV genotypes (p<0.001, which is consistent with the observation that anal HPV infection was an independent predictor for HIV infection. CONCLUSIONS: A high prevalence of HIV and anal HPV co-infection was observed in the MSM community in Beijing and Tianjin, China. Anal HPV infection was found to be independently associated with increased HIV seropositivity, which suggests the application of HPV vaccine might be a potential strategy to reduce the acquisition of HIV infection though controlling the prevalence of HPV.

    Full Text Available O artigo investiga a noção do brincar no pensamento do psicanalista inglês Donald W. Winnicott no contexto amplo de sua obra e principais conceitos. O texto aborda a noção de transicionalidade, a noção de espaço potencial e a noção de tempo. O relacionamento mãe-bebê é estudado e o jogo que aí se dá torna-se referência para o pensamento sobre a clínica e sobre a própria prática clínica. O artigo oferece uma contribuição à compreensão da novidade epistemológica do pensamento de Winnicott, comparando-o a outros momentos do pensamento científico atual. Mostra como a sessão analítica winnicottiana é viva e alegre, visa a integração e espontaneidade do self e carrega uma radical visão do que seja a psicopatologia humana.Playing and the analytical experience. The article analyses the notion of playing in the thought of the English psychoanalyst Donald W. Winnicott, in the broad context of his work and main concepts such as the notion of transitionality, the notion of potential space and the notion of time. The relationship between mother and baby is studied and the game that arises in this relation becomes a reference for the thought about clinics and for the clinics itself. The article contributes to the understanding of the epistemological novelty of Winnicott’s thought, comparing it to other current expressions of the scientific thought. The article also demonstrates how Winnicott’s analytical session is lively and joyful, aiming at the integration and spontaneity of the self, conveying a radical vision of what human psychopathology is.

    The appearance of the new lecture systems for the manometry studies by computer, like the Polygram by Synectics (vector volume), offer the possibility to see the circumferential pressure forces, that even in rest conditions as in voluntary contraction, they keep coaptation of the anal canal, and this will act as a continent closure system in the most distal part of the G.I. tract. The study is with the normal parameters obtained in 14 individuals, considered as normal, getting the mean +/- sd pressure of the anal canal convey in mm Hg, from de anal canal profile in rest as in voluntary contraction, and the maximum variability that could exist between the six profile waves, that are obtained in the same individual to develop an image of the anal canal. This valves will allow the author's to get to the bottom of fecal incontinence derivative from anorectal malformations, defining the pressure valves of muscular hypoplasia or surgical outcomes of the malformations.

    Full Text Available The functional properties of sialic acids appear to be manifold. Additionally, antimicrobial substances serve as a non-specific defense against microorganisms. In this study, therefore, the localization of sialic acids and antimicrobial substances in the anal glands of dog was studied by sialoglycoconjugate histochemistry and immunohistochemistry. The secretory epithelium, luminal secretions and excretory ducts exhibited high levels of sialoglycoconjugates that terminated in Siaα2-6Gal/GalNAc or Siaα2-3Gal1-4GlcNAc. Additionally, O-acetylated sialic acids were detectable in these glandular structures. Antimicrobial substances, such as lysozyme, immunoglobulin A (IgA, lactoferrin and the peptide group of β-defensins, were also demonstrated as products of the anal glands. The results obtained are discussed with regard to the functional significance of the anal glands. These secretory products may create a defensive barrier against microbial invasion at the anal mucosa.

    Primary neoplasms arising in the anal canal are relatively unusual. In particular, adenomas and adenocarcinomas are distinctly rare entities in this region. We describe an infiltrating, well-differentiated adenocarcinoma arising in a villous adenoma from the distal anal canal, in an otherwise healthy patient at low risk for gastrointestinal malignancy. This is the case of an octogenarian man with a several year history of hemorrhoids and intermittent rectal bleeding, more recently complaining of continuous hematochezia. Examination revealed a blood-covered pedunculated mass with a long stalk protruding from the anus. The lesion was amputated at the bedside. Microscopic evaluation revealed an infiltrating well-differentiated adenocarcinoma, arising from a villous adenoma. This was further evaluated under anesthesia and complete excision of distal anal tissue was performed. Our report is the first describing the possible malignant degeneration of a villous adenoma in the anal canal.

    dose of ERM bacterin fully protected rainbow trout when they are vaccinated anally. Oral vaccination can also induce full protection but the dose of the bacterin has to be 100 times higher than if the fish was to be vaccinated anally. This indicates that much of the oral feed bacteria is digested......The effect of oral vaccines against bacterial fish diseases has been a topic for debate in many years. Recently both M-cells and dendritic cells have been found in fish and it is therefore likely that antigens can be taken up from the intestine and induce immunity in orally and anally vaccinated...... fish. The objective for this project is to investigate whether oral and anal vaccination of rainbow trout against Yersinia ruckeri O1 (biotype 1) causing Enteric Red Mouth disease (ERM) can protect rainbow trout against a subsequent experimental bath challenge.The rainbow trout were given oral...

    Full Text Available Anal cancer, one of human papillomavirus (HPV related malignancies, has increased in recent decades, particularly among men who have sex with men (MSM and HIV-infected (HIV+ persons. We aimed to explore the prevalence of anal squamous intraepithelial lesions (ASIL using Papanicolau (Pap screening among MSM in northern Thailand and its associated factors.Two hundreds MSM aged ≥18 years reporting receptive anal intercourse in the prior 6 months were recruited from July 2012 through January 2013. Medical history and behavioral data were collected by staff interview and computer-assisted self interview. Anal Pap smear, HPV genotyping, and HIV testing were performed. Two pathologists blinded to HPV and HIV status reported cytologic results by Bethesda classification.Mean age was 27.2 years (range 18-54. Overall, 86 (43.0% had ASIL: 28 (14.2% with atypical cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS, 1 (0.5% with atypical squamous cells-cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (ASC-H, 56 (28.4% with low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL, and 1 (0.5% with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL. ASIL was associated by univariate analysis (p ≤0.05 with older age, gender identity other than bisexual (i.e., gay men and transgender women, rectal douching, anal symptoms, genital warts, HIV positivity, and high-risk-HPV infection. However, on multiple logistic regression ASIL was associated only with high-risk HPV type (p = 0.002 and HIV infection (p = 0.01.ASIL is quite common in high-risk MSM in northern Thailand and is associated with high-risk HPV types and HIV infection. Routine anal Pap screening should be considered, given the high frequency of ASIL, particularly in the HIV+. High resolution anoscopy (HRA, not done here, should be to confirm PAP smears whose sensitivity and specificity are quite variable. Timely HPV vaccination should be considered for this population.

    Identifying roles for anal sex is an important issue for populations of MSM. We describe the prevalence of identifying as being 'top', 'bottom', 'versatile', or 'don't know/not applicable' among Malay and Chinese MSM in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and behavioural outcomes according to these labels for sexual role identity. Data analysis was conducted on a survey administered during weekly outreach throughout Kuala Lumpur in 2012. Pearson's Chi square tests were used to compare demographic and behavioural characteristics of MSM who reported roles for anal sex. Binary logistic regression was used to explore the odds of behavioural outcomes among MSM who identified as 'bottom', 'versatile,' and 'don't know' compared to MSM who reported that 'top' was their sexual role. Labels for anal sex roles were significantly associated with condom use for last anal sex. Among MSM who used labels for anal sex roles, MSM who identified as 'bottom' had highest level of not using condoms for last anal sex (24.1%, p = .045). In binary logistic regression model, identifying as 'top' was significantly associated with reporting using a condom during last anal sex and reported consistent condom use for anal sex in the past six months (p = .039 and .017, respectively). With regard to sexual role identity, some MSM may be a part of a special subgroup of at-risk men to be targeted. Future research should evaluate the origins, meanings, and perceptions of these labels, and the developmental process of how these MSM identify with any of these categories. Research should also uncover condom use decision making with regard to these labels for sexual positioning.

    Anal cancer disproportionately burdens persons living with human immunodeficiency virus (PLHIV) regardless of natal sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, and ethnic identity. Culturally competent communications are recommended to address health disparities, with sociocultural relevance ensured through constituent dialogic processes. Results are presented from six provider focus groups conducted to inform the promotion/education component of a Hawai'i-based project on anal cancer screening tools. Krueger's focus group methodology guided discussion queries. Verbatim transcripts of digitally recorded discussions were analyzed using grounded theory and PEN-3 procedures. Adherence to an audit trail ensured analytic rigor. Grounded theory analysis detected the overall theme of risk and reluctance to anal cancer screening, characterized by anal cancer not being "on the radar" of PLHIV, conflicting attributions of the anus and anal sex, fear of sex-shaming/-blaming, and other interrelated conceptual categories. PEN-3 analysis revealed strategies for destigmatizing anal cancer, through "real talk" (proactive, candid, nonjudgmental discussion) nested in a framework of sexual health and overall well-being, with additional tailoring for relevance to Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders, transgender persons, and other marginalized groups. Application of strategies for health practice are specific to the Hawai'i context, yet may offer considerations for developing strengths-based, culturally relevant screening promotion/education with diverse PLHIV in other locales.

    Anal cancer is a rare disease with an increasing incidence worldwide but, unfortunately, even today the scientific community still has a limited knowledge and limited options of treatment. More than 50% of patients with anal cancer presenting at diagnosis with locoregional disease have good chances of cure with chemoradiotherapy (CT-RT). However, once patients develop metastatic spread, the prognosis is very poor. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is present in more than 80% of anal cancers and while multiple etiologic connections between HPV infection and anal cancer have already been well elucidated, its prognostic and/or predictive role is currently under investigation, especially among immunocompetent patients affected by this disease. In a single-institutional set, we have retrospectively analysed clinical data of 50 consecutive cases homogeneously treated with CT-RT for stage I-III anal squamous cell carcinoma. We found that HPV-positive anal cancers had a statistically significant improved five-year disease-free survival (DFS) compared to HPV-negative group. These findings could be explained by an increased chemo/radiosensitivity of HPV-positive tumours. Further efforts should be directed towards a better understanding of HPV-related oncogenesis and towards designing novel tailored strategies for the management of this disease both in terms of prevention and treatment.

    Women (N = 138) with histories of illicit drug use were recruited into an electronic diary study that used Android smartphones for data collection. The diary was to be completed each day for 12 weeks using an "app" created in HTML5 and accessed over the Internet via smartphone. Data collection included information on sexual behaviors with up to 10 partners per day and contextual factors surrounding sexual behavior such as drug use before/after, type of sexual behavior (oral, vaginal, anal), and other activities such as using condoms for vaginal and anal intercourse and use of sexual lubricants. The sample was predominantly African American (58 %); 20 % Latina, 20 % White and 2 % reported as Other. Most women reported either less than a high school education (33 %) or having a high school diploma (33 %). The mean age was 39 years (SD = 11.78). Anal intercourse occurred on days when women also reported using illicit drugs, specifically methamphetamine and cocaine. Anal intercourse was not an isolated sexual activity, but took place on days when vaginal intercourse and giving and receiving oral sex also occurred along with illicit drug use. Anal intercourse also occurred on days when women reported they wanted sex. HIV prevention interventions must address the risks of anal intercourse for women, taking into account concurrent drug use and sexual pleasure that may reduce individual harm-reduction behaviors.

    Full Text Available Chronic anal fissure is the most common cause of anal pain associated with internal anal sphincter hypertonia. Reduction of hypertonocity is a special treatment for fissure healing. For this purpose chronic anal fissures were conventionally treated by anal dilatation or by lateral sphincterotomy. However, both of these methods may cause a degree of incontinence in some patients. The uptake of medical therapies that create a reversible chemical sphincterotomy has recently become widespread. The aim of this prospective clinical trial study was to assess the effectiveness of nifedipine in healing anal fissure, a calcium channel blocker that reduces sphincter pressure. A single-blind randomized comparative trial was setup to compare traditional treatment with stool softeners and 2% lidocaine cream against 0.5% nifedipine cream for 4 weeks. 110 patients were included in this study, 60 patients in the nifedipine group and 50 patients in the control group and the therapeutic outcome and side effects were recorded. Healing had occurred in 70% of patients in the nifedipine group and in 12% of patients in the control group after 4 weeks treatment (P

Adjustments were made for year of delivery, maternal age, fetal head position at delivery, infant birth weight and instrumental delivery. Results. The overall prevalence of third- or four-degree anal sphincter injury was 6.6% (partial anal sphincter injury 4.6%, total anal sphincter injury 1.2%, unclassified as either partial and total 0.2%, or fourth degree lacerations 0.6%. The risk for a partial, total, or a fourth-degree anal sphincter injury decreased with increasing maternal BMI most pronounced for total anal sphincter injury where the risk among morbidly obese women was half that of normal weight women, OR 0.47 95% CI 0.28–0.78. Conclusion. Obese women had a favourable outcome compared to normal weight women concerning serious pelvic floor damages at birth.

    HIV infection is one of the strongest risk factors for anal squamous cell cancer (ASCC). Most ASCC are caused by HPV, and most HPV-associated ASCC are caused by HPV-16. Anal HPV infections are very common in men who have sex with men (MSM), and nearly universal among HIV-infected MSM. High-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (HGAIN), the precursor for ASCC, is present in about 30 % of HIV+ MSM, but neither the progression rate to ASCC nor the regression rate are known. The incidence rate of ASCC among HIV-infected people has risen in the first decade after cART became available, but appears to be plateauing recently. Anal cytology has poor sensitivity and specificity. High resolution anoscopy (HRA) is advocated by some as a screening tool in high-risk groups, but is cumbersome and time-consuming and it is unknown whether HRA followed by treatment of HGAIN prevents ASCC. More research is needed on progression and regression rates of HGAIN, on effective therapy of HGAIN, and on biomarkers that predict HGAIN or anal cancer. HPV vaccination and earlier start of cART may prevent most anal cancers in the long run. PMID:24990810

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Understanding the full range of sexual behaviors of young people is crucial in developing appropriate interventions to prevent and control sexually transmitted infections including HIV. However, such information is meager in developing countries. The objective of this study was to describe oral and anal sex practices and identify associated factors among high school youth. Methods A cross-sectional study was conducted among high school youth in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A multi-stage sampling procedure was followed to select a representative sample of school youth. The total sample size for this study was 3840. Data were collected using a self-administered questionnaire. Data analysis was guided by the ecological framework. Results The overall proportion of people who reported ever having oral sex was 5.4% (190 and that of anal sex was 4.3% (154. Of these 51.6% (98 had oral sex and 57.1% (87 had anal sex in the past 12 months. Multiple partnerships were reported by 61.2% of the respondents who had oral sex and 51.1% of students practicing anal sex. Consistent condom use was reported by 12.2% of those practicing oral sex and 26.1% of anal sex. Reasons for oral and anal sex included prevention of pregnancy, preserving virginity, and reduction of HIV and STIs transmission. Oral sex practice was strongly and significantly associated with perception of best friends engagement in oral sex (AOR = 5.7; 95% CI 3.6-11.2 and having illiterate mothers (AOR = 11.5; 95%CI 6.4-18.5. Similarly, anal sex practice was strongly and significantly associated with favorable attitude towards anal sex (AOR = 6.2; 95%CI 3.8-12.4, and perceived best friends engagement in anal sex (AOR = 9.7; 95%CI 5.4-17.7. Conclusion Considerable proportion of adolescents had engaged in oral and anal sex practices. Multiple sexual partnerships were common while consistent condom use was low.

    To compare photon thunderbird with deep match (technique 1) with 3-field technique with electron inguinal boost (technique 2) in acute skin toxicity, toxicity-related treatment breaks and patterns of failure in elective inguinal radiation therapy (RT) for curative chemoradiation in anal cancer. Seventeen patients treated between January 2008 and September 2010 without evidence of inguinal and distant metastasis were retrospectively reviewed. In 9 patients with technique 1, dose to inguinal and whole pelvis area was 41.4 to 45 Gy and total dose was 59.4 Gy. In 8 patients with technique 2, doses to inguinal, whole pelvis, gross tumor were 36 to 41.4 Gy, 36 to 41.4 Gy, and 45 to 54 Gy, respectively. The median follow-up period was 27.6 and 14.8 months in group technique 1 and 2, respectively. The incidences of grade 3 radiation dermatitis were 56% (5 patients) and 50% (4 patients), dose ranges grade 3 dermatitis appeared were 41.4 to 50.4 Gy and 45 to 54 Gy in group technique 1 and 2, respectively (p = 0.819). The areas affected by grade 3 dermatitis in 2 groups were as follow: perianal and perineal areas in 40% and 25%, perianal and inguinal areas in 0% and 50%, and perianal area only in 60% and 25%, respectively (p = 0.196). No inguinal failure has been observed. Photon thunderbird with deep match technique and 3-field technique with electron inguinal boost showed similar incidence of radiation dermatitis. However, photon thunderbird with deep match seems to increase the possibility of severe perineal dermatitis.

    Background To examine factors associated with heterosexual anal intercourse (AI). Methods Between 2001 and 2004, 890 heterosexual adults aged 18-26 attending public STD clinics in Seattle, New Orleans and St Louis were interviewed using CASI and tested for sexually transmitted infections (STI) Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma genitalium, Trichomonas vaginalis, and genital herpes (HSV-2). Characteristics associated with AI were identified using logistic regression. Results Overall 289 (32%) reported ever having had AI, 201 (26.5%) reported AI with at least one of their last three partners and 17% reported AI with their last partner. Fewer females than males reported condom use at last AI (24% vs. 47%, p3 lifetime sex partners (AOR 2.2 [1.17-4.26]) among women, and sex on the same day as meeting a partner (AOR 2.0 [1.28-3.14]) and paying for sex (AOR 1.8 [1.00-3.15]) among men. AI with the last partner was associated with sex toy use (AOR 5.3 [2.35-12.0]) and having concurrent partners (AOR 2.3 [1.18-4.26]) among men, and with sex within a week of meeting (AOR 2.7 [1.21-5.83]), believing the partner was concurrent (AOR 2.6 [1.38-4.83]), and partnership duration >3 months (AOR 3.2 [1.03-10.1]) among women. Prevalent STI was not associated with AI. Conclusions Many young heterosexuals attending STD clinics reported AI, which was associated with other sexual risk behaviors, suggesting a confluence of risks for HIV infection. PMID:19265740

    Full Text Available “El cuerpo ya no es el obstáculo que separa al pensamiento de sí mismo”. Esta afirmación de Deleuze (La imagen-tiempo, Estudios sobre cine 2, l985 reinstala al cuerpo en el dominio del pensamiento. Con Nietzsche ya se sugería un pensar desde el cuerpo. El cuerpo insiste y es esa pulsión vital la que lo fuerza a pensar. Su capacidad de metamorfosis y de vértigos nos fuerza a interrogar su régimen de signos y valores. La Danza-Teatro y el psicodrama analítico pondrán en cuestión los automatismos psíquicos y sociales. Siendo de este modo las pulsiones del cuerpo, sus vibraciones, su anatomía como destino y su morfo-fisiología las condiciones de posibilidad de los gestos, los que nos imprimen y dotan no sólo de una posición ética, sino también –y fundamentalmente– estética en la constitución de nuestra subjetividad. El vigor, la elegancia, el heroísmo o el júbilo no sólo responden a un talante ético, sino que originariamente son imágenes estéticas que proveen los cuerpos. El cuerpo así pensado se afirma como comportamiento y gesto.Al aproximarnos a los dominios de la danza, en particular a la obra de Pina Bausch indagaremos el terreno de las transformaciones de la mundaneidad del cuerpo bajo los regímenes del deseo. Nos aproximaremos al cuerpo como producción expresiva del arte de vivir y de la ética como tonalidad y particular voluntad expresiva.

    Full Text Available Purpose: The objective of this study was to evaluate anal cytology and human papillomavirus (HPV typing in patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection. Materials and Methods: Anal samples were collected from 61 patients (44 men and 17 women and analyzed by PapilloCheck test and conventional cytology. Results: Of all anal samples, 37.7% had cytological abnormalities, 47.54% were negative and 14.75% were unsatisfactory. High-risk HPV, multiple high-risk HPV and HPV 16 infection was detected in 91.13%, 78.26% and 47.82% of the samples with cytological abnormalities and in 47.54%, 6.89% and 3.44% of the negative samples, respectively. High-risk HPV infection was significantly more frequent in anal samples with cytological abnormalities than in negative samples (P = 0.0005, Fisher′s test, particularly multiple high-risk HPV infection (P < 0.0001 and HPV 16 infection (P = 0.0002. Conclusions: High-risk HPV, multiple high-risk HPV and HPV 16 infections are significantly associated with anal cytological abnormalities. Furthermore, the frequency of HPV infection in anal cytological samples suggests that high-risk HPV detection has high sensitivity, but low specificity for detection of anal cytological abnormalities, but multiple high-risk HPV typing and HPV 16 typing have a lower sensitivity and high specificity. Results suggest that HPV typing may be useful as an adjunct to cytology to screen patients for high-resolution anoscopy and biopsy.

    AIM: To describe the anal cushion lifting(ACL) method with preliminary clinical results. METHODS: Between January to September 2007, 127 patients who received ACL method for hemorrhoid was investigated with informed consent. In this study, three surgeons who specialized in anorectal surgery performed the procedures. Patients with grade two or more severe hemorrhoids according to Goligher’s classification were considered to be indicated for surgery. The patients were given the choice to undergo either the ACL method or theligation and excision method. ACL method is an original technique for managing hemorrhoids without excision. After dissecting the anal cushion from the internal sphincter muscle, the anal cushion was lifted to oral side and ligated at the proper position. Clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients were recorded including complications after surgery. RESULTS: A total of 127 patients were enrolled. Their median age was 42(19-84) years, and 74.8% were female. In addition, more than 99% of the patients had grade 3 or worse hemorrhoids. The median followup period was 26(0-88) mo, and the median operative time was 15(4-30) min. After surgery, analgesics were used for a median period of three days(0-21). Pain control was achieved using extra-oral analgesic drugs, although some patients required intravenous injections of analgesic drugs. The median duration of the patients’ postoperative hospital stay was 7(2-13) d. A total of 10 complications(7.9%) occurred. Bleeding was observed in one patient and was successfully controlled with manual compression. Urinary retention occurred in 6 patients, but it disappeared spontaneously in all cases. Recurrent hemorrhoids developed in 3 patients after 36, 47, and 61 mo, respectively. No anal stenosis or persistent anal pain occurred. CONCLUSION: We consider that the ACL method might be better than all other current methods for managing hemorrhoids.

    2016-04-01

    Rectal atresia and anal stenosis are rare forms of anorectal malformations. The aim of the definitive surgical repair in such cases is to preserve the anal canal, the dentate line, and the sphincter complex. We present a case of rectal atresia and anal stenosis to demonstrate the differences in the operative repair. The techniques described leave the anterior wall of the very distal anal canal untouched in both rectal stenosis and anal atresia; however, the dissection of the rectum differs. The atretic rectum in rectal atresia is mobilized and sutured to the anal canal circumferentially. In anal stenosis, the posterior rectum is mobilized in the form of rectal advancement, and the posterior 180° is anastomosed directly to the skin (as in a standard PSARP) with preservation of the anal canal as the anterior 180° of the final anoplasty. These patients have an excellent prognosis for bowel control and fecal continence, and therefore, complete mobilization and resection of the anal canal must be avoided. PMID:26902368

    Since the introduction of combination antiretroviral therapy (ART), the life expectancy has increased for patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This has been associated with reductions in the incidences of some AIDS-defining malignancies, such as Kaposi sarcoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, but has coincided with an increased incidence of non-AIDS-defining malignancies, such as anal cancer. However, anal cancers are rare in patients with HIV in Japan. We report the case of an HIV-infected patient with anal cancer treated with chemoradiotherapy. A 37-year-old man receiving ART for HIV infection presented with a 1-month history of left inguinal lymphadenopathy and anal pain. Magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography revealed a 56-mm mass, left inguinal lymphadenopathy, and left external iliac lymphadenopathy. The mass had infiltrated from the anal canal to the right levator ani and corpus spongiosum. Colonoscopy revealed a tumor with an ulcer in the anal canal. Histological examination of the tumor biopsy specimens confirmed the diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma. The patient was diagnosed with anal cancer (T4N2M1 stage IV), and he received 5-fluorouracil (1000mg/m(2) on days 1-4 and 29-32) plus mitomycin C (10mg/m(2) on days 1 and 29) and concurrent radiotherapy (total dose, 59.4Gy in 33 fractions) along with ART. The treatment-related adverse events were grade 4 leukopenia and neutropenia, grade 3 thrombocytopenia, and grade 2 radiation dermatitis. Moreover, CD4 suppression was observed:the CD4 count decreased from 190 cells/μl before chemoradiotherapy to 138 cells/μl after 3 months, but increased to 210 cells/μl after 1 year. Because of the grade 4 leukopenia and neutropenia, the dose of 5-fluorouracil was reduced to 800mg/m(2) on days 29-32. A complete response was confirmed on magnetic resonance imaging, and colonoscopy confirmed the disappearance of the anal cancer. The patient is living with no signs of recurrence at 2 years

    Objective We aimed to determine whether ASC measurements on translabial ultrasound (TL-US) were related to anal incontinence (AI) or fecal incontinence (FI) symptoms six months postpartum. Methods A prospective cohort of primiparous women underwent TL-US six months after a vaginal birth (VB) or Cesarean delivery (CD). Muscle thickness was measured at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock positions of the external sphincter (EAS), the same four quadrants of the internal sphincter (IAS) at proximal, mid, and distal levels, and at the bilateral pubovisceralis muscle (PVM). Measurements were correlated to AI and FI on the Wexner Fecal Incontinence Scale, with sub-analyses by mode of delivery. The odds ratio (OR) of symptoms was calculated for every one millimeter increase in muscle thickness (E1MIT). Results 423 women (299 VB, 124 CD) had TL-US six months postpartum. Decreased AI risk was associated with thicker measurements at the 6 o’clock (OR 0.74 E1MIT) and 9 o’clock proximal IAS (OR 0.71 E1MIT) in the entire cohort. For CD women, thicker measurements of the 9 o’clock proximal IAS were associated with decreased risk of AI (OR 0.56 E1MIT) and thicker distal 6 o’clock IAS measurements were related to a decreased risk of FI (OR 0.37 E1MIT). For VB women, no sphincter measurements were significantly related to symptoms, but thicker PVM measurements were associated with increased risk of AI (right side OR 1.32 E1MIT; left side OR 1.21 E1MIT). Conclusions ASC anatomy is associated with AI and FI in certain locations; these locations varybased on the patient’s mode of delivery. PMID:26085463

Para quantificar esse impacto em nosso meio, não existem instrumentos específicos validados. OBJETIVOS: Avaliar a qualidade de vida na incontinência anal, através da validação do questionário "Fecal Incontinence Quality of Life" (FIQL, que é composto por 29 questões distribuídas em 4 domínios: estilo de vida, comportamento, depressão e constrangimento, sua escala de pontuação varia de 1 a 4 com exceção das questões 1 e 4 que variam de 1 a 5 e 1 a 6, respectivamente. MATERIAL E MÉTODO: Após tradução e adaptação cultural, estudou-se a validação do instrumento através das propriedades de medida de reprodutibilidade e validade. Para a avaliação da reprodutibilidade aplicou-se o questionário em 50 pacientes com incontinência anal por dois examinadores, sendo reaplicado por um dos examinadores após período de 7 a 10 dias. A validade construtiva foi testada através da comparação do FIQL e o SF-36, questionário genérico de qualidade de vida e entre o FIQL e um índice de incontinência anal. O índice de incontinência anal utilizado foi o de Jorge-Wexner, que varia de 0 (continência perfeita a 20 (incontinência total. A validade discriminativa foi avaliada através da aplicação do FIQL em dois grupos controle: indivíduos voluntários hígidos e portadores de constipação intestinal. RESULTADOS: Verificou-se que o FIQL apresentou correlação significativa com outros instrumentos (SF-36 e índice de incontinência e que a qualidade de vida no portador de incontinência anal está comprometida em todos os domínios: estilo de vida: 2,4 comportamento: 2,0, depressão: 2,5 e constrangimento: 1,9, quando comparado com os indivíduos voluntários hígidos (3,9, 3,9, 4,1 e 4,0, e pacientes com constipação intestinal (3,7, 3,8, 3,6 e 3,8, respectivamente.

    In this article, we sought to understand the perceptions and practice of providers on anal cancer screening in HIV-infected patients. Providers in an academic outpatient HIV practice were surveyed. Data were analyzed to determine the acceptability and perceptions of providers on anal Papanicolaou tests. Survey response rate was 55.3% (60.7% among male and 47.4% among female providers). One-third of the providers had received screening requests from patients. Female providers had higher self-rated comfort with anal Papanicolaou tests, with a mean score of 7.1 (95% confidence interval [CI] 4.7-9.5) compared to 3.6 (95% CI 1.5-5.7) for male providers, P = .02. Sixty-seven percent of male providers and 37.5% of female providers would like to refer their patients for screening rather than perform the test themselves. Only 54.2% of our providers have ever performed anal cytology examination. Our survey revealed that not all providers were comfortable performing anal cancer screening for their patients.

    Anal cancer is uncommon, with an incidence rate of 0.5-1.0 per 100,000 of the population but incidence rates have been steadily increasing over the last 3 decades. Biological and epidemiological evidence have been mounting and demonstrate that anal cancer has many similarities to cervical cancer, especially in regard to its aetiology. High-resolution anoscopy (HRA) of the anal region – analogous to colposcopy of the cervix, is a technique that is not well-known in the medical and surgical fraternity. Evidence to support the use of HRA for detection and treatment in the surveillance of AIN exists and strongly suggests that it is beneficial, resulting in reduced rates of cancer progression. Pilot data from our study showed a local disease failure rate of 1.73 per 1000 patient-months compared with a published rate of 9.89 per 1000 patient-months. This demonstrates a 5.72-fold reduction in local disease failure rates of patients with T1-T3 tumours; the data therefore suggests that use of HRA for detection and treatment in surveillance of anal cancer patients will help prevent local regional relapse at the anal site. There is an urgent need for a large, randomised controlled clinical trial to definitively test this hypothesis. PMID:24373061

    Background Anal cancer, one of human papillomavirus (HPV) related malignancies, has increased in recent decades, particularly among men who have sex with men (MSM) and HIV-infected (HIV+) persons. We aimed to explore the prevalence of anal squamous intraepithelial lesions (ASIL) using Papanicolau (Pap) screening among MSM in northern Thailand and its associated factors. Methods Two hundreds MSM aged ≥18 years reporting receptive anal intercourse in the prior 6 months were recruited from July 2012 through January 2013. Medical history and behavioral data were collected by staff interview and computer-assisted self interview. Anal Pap smear, HPV genotyping, and HIV testing were performed. Two pathologists blinded to HPV and HIV status reported cytologic results by Bethesda classification. Results Mean age was 27.2 years (range 18–54). Overall, 86 (43.0%) had ASIL: 28 (14.2%) with atypical cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS), 1 (0.5%) with atypical squamous cells—cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (ASC-H), 56 (28.4%) with low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL), and 1 (0.5%) with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL). ASIL was associated by univariate analysis (p ≤0.05) with older age, gender identity other than bisexual (i.e., gay men and transgender women), rectal douching, anal symptoms, genital warts, HIV positivity, and high-risk-HPV infection. However, on multiple logistic regression ASIL was associated only with high-risk HPV type (p = 0.002) and HIV infection (p = 0.01). Conclusions ASIL is quite common in high-risk MSM in northern Thailand and is associated with high-risk HPV types and HIV infection. Routine anal Pap screening should be considered, given the high frequency of ASIL, particularly in the HIV+. High resolution anoscopy (HRA), not done here, should be to confirm PAP smears whose sensitivity and specificity are quite variable. Timely HPV vaccination should be considered for this population

    Aim: Since the distal part of the intestine is targeted by a wide range of pathogens, the motility of the recto-anal region has been the object of many experimental and clinical observations. In this study, we investigated descending motor responses in the anal canal as a measure of the activation of autonomic reflex pathways underlying evacuatory recto-anal activity. Methods: The partitioned organ bath method was used to register motor responses of the anal canal as induced by balloon distension of the rectum in isolated rat recto-anal preparations. Results: Distension-induced descending responses of the anal canal comprised contractions (with distension at a distance of 15 mm), initial contractions and secondary relaxations (at 10 mm) and short contractions followed by deep relaxations (at 3-5 mm). Decreas-ing the distance between the distension stimulus and the anal canal resulted in a decreased contraction response and increased relaxation. Tetrodotoxin (0.1 μmol/L) inhibited these responses. Atropine (0.3 μmol/L) decreased contraction and did not change the relaxation response. N~G-nitro-L-arginine (0.5 mmol/L) enhanced contraction in both the absence and presence of atropine. L-arginine (0.5 mmol/L) inhibited contraction and extended relaxation in atropine-pretreated preparations. The actions of N~G-nitro-L-arginine and L-arginine were more pronounced in the aboral direction. ChAT-positive nerve fibers were observed in myenteric ganglia of the rectum and the anal canal. The density of NADPH-diaphorase-positive neurons was higher in the anal canal region. Conclusion: Our results suggest that locality-dependent activation of the descending reflex neuromuscular communications underlie evacuatory activity in the recto-anal region. This activation response involves long excitatory cholinergic and non-cholinergic pathways along the rectum and short inhibitory nitrergic pathways located predominantly in the anal canal region.

    Full Text Available El sostenido desarrollo de las neurociencias en el estudio del cerebro y la conducta humana, junto al desarrollo de puentes epistemológicos entre las psicociencias, especialmente referidos al estudio de la mente y al alma humana, ha comenzado a generar una complementariedad e integración del conocimiento desde diferentes disciplinas científicas, buscando la formulación de una teoría unificada cerebro-mente. En el contexto de esta generación de conocimiento, ha surgido la propuesta de los autores de un espacio transdisciplinario de estudio de las relaciones entre la mente y el cerebro, entre neurociencias y psicociencias, que denominan Psiconeurociencia. Desde esta perspectiva los autores plantean una re-visión de la noción de arquetipo formulada por la Psicología Analítica a la luz de los aportes de la neurociencia y de la psicología cognitiva, para describir a modo de ejemplo de este re-formulación, los patrones de organización que interactúan en los trastornos depresivos.

    Full Text Available El presente texto contiene una propuesta de análisis antropológico del sistema de cargos que incluye tanto a comunidades indígenas como no-indígenas. Partiendo del reconocimiento del sistema de cargos como una institución esencialmente heterogénea, se sugiere que, como hipótesis principal, tal institución alimenta una serie de mecanismos que, en sí mismos, potencian los escenarios de interacciones que protagonizan los miembros de la comunidad a través de un conjunto de roles: fomentan que los escenarios puedan ser protagonizados por el mayor número de miembros; propician que tales escenarios se articulen con la mayor frecuencia posible; todo ello con el acuerdo tácito entre protagonistas de que exista rotación de roles entre escenario y escenario. Esta propuesta analítica va a estar estructurada en tres bloques. En primer lugar, se ubican los fenómenos estudiados en torno al sistema de cargos en un continuum de comportamientos tendentes al individualismo y a lo colectivo en sus dos polos. En segundo lugar, se explicita el concepto de comunidad como elemento básico para el estudio de los sistemas de cargos; por último, se propone la idea del proyecto comunitario como denominador común en cuanto a sistemas de cargos se refiere en el área mesoamericana.

    In case of complex anal fistulae, the treatment can include muscular flaps. The gracilis transposition flap is the gold-standard in perineal reconstructive surgery, with wide use during the past decades. However, in some cases, this flap is too short to reach difficult locations such as the posterior perineum. The long head of the biceps femoris, which has already been studied in the electrically stimulated neosphincter formation, could be more appropriate in such clinical situations. Furthermore, its potential advantages, amongst which an excellent functional outcome, would be to allow persistent prone position, during both treatment and reconstruction, as well as a more favorable intramuscular vascularisation. We report the case of a 39-year-old man with a complex recurrent transphincteric posterior anal fistula with an external orifice in the right buttock and complicated with a severe cellulitis, treated with an endo-anal flap combined with a long head of biceps femoris pediculised flap.

    Human body sites represent ecological niches for microorganisms, each providing variations in microbial exposure, nutrient availability, microbial competition, and host immunological responses. In this study, we investigated the oral, anal, and cervical microbiomes from the same 20 sexually active adolescent females, using culture-independent, next-generation sequencing. DNA from each sample was amplified for the bacterial 16S rRNA gene and sequenced on an Illumina platform using paired-end reads. Across the three anatomical niches, we found significant differences in bacterial community composition and diversity. Overall anal samples were dominated with Prevotella and Bacteriodes, oral samples with Streptococcus and Prevotella, and cervical samples with Lactobacillus. The microbiomes of a few cervical samples clustered with anal samples in weighted principal coordinate analyses, due in part to a higher proportion of Prevotella in those samples. Additionally, cervical samples had the lowest alpha diversity. Our results demonstrate the occurrence of distinct microbial communities across body sites within the same individual.

    Full Text Available Background: Chronic anal fissure is a common problem across the world treated largely by surgical methods. Studies have demonstrated the efficacy of topical agents like Glyceryl Trinitrate (GTN in anal fissure but it has been shown to have side effects like headache and dizziness. There is a need for a pharmacological therapy for fissure which has fewer side effects. Hence, this study was taken up to assess the efficacy and adverse effects of topical 2% Diltiazem (DTZ gel. Aim & Objectives: To assess the efficacy and side effect of topical treatment with 2% DTZ gel in patient with chronic anal fissure. Material and Methods: Consecutive fifty adult patients with symptomatic chronic anal fissure attending the surgery clinic were enrolled in the study form February 2014- July 2014 and they were treated with regular topical application of 2% DTZ cream. Patients were followed up at regular intervals for symptomatic relief and healing of fissure. Results: In our study postdefecatory pain, bleeding and irritation were significantly reduced after 2week of therapy and a th primary healing rate of 86% (43 out of 50 at 6 week of therapy. The primary side-effects of 2% DTZ gel appeared to be perianal dermatitis and pruritis ani in 14% cases. Conclusion: Topical 2% DTZ gel is an effective agent in the treatment of chronic anal fissure. The need for hospital stay is abolished; psychological and financial burden on the patient is reduced. With a healing rate close to 90%, topical DTZ can be easily advised as the first line of treatment of chronic anal fissure.

    Full Text Available CONTEXT: Anal cancer, although a still rare disease, is being observed in ascending rates among some population segments known to be at risk for the development of the disease. Human papillomavirus (HPV infection, immunodepression and anal intercourse are some factors associated with the development of the malignancy. Its similarities to cervical cancer have led to many studies aiming to establish guidelines for detecting and treating precursor lesions of anal cancer, with the goal of prevention. High-resolution anoscopy is routinely used for the diagnosis of anal cancer precursor lesions in many centers but the medical literature is still deficient concerning the role of this diagnostic modality. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate diagnostic validation and precision measures of high-resolution anoscopy in comparison to histopathological results of anal biopsies performed in HIV-positive patients treated at the Tropical Medicine Foundation of Amazonas, AM, Brazil. To observe any possible association between some risk factors for the development of anal cancer and the presence of anal squamous intraepithelial lesions. METHODS: A hundred and twenty-eight HIV-positive patients were submitted to anal canal cytological sampling for the detection of HPV infection by a PCR based method. High-resolution anoscopy was then performed after topical application of acetic acid 3% in the anal canal for 2 minutes. Eventual acetowhite lesions that were detected were recorded in respect to location, and classified by their tinctorial pattern, distribution aspect, relief, surface and vascular pattern. Biopsies of acetowhite lesions were performed under local anesthesia and the specimens sent to histopathological analysis. The patients were interviewed for the presence of anal cancer risk factors. RESULTS: The prevalences of anal HPV infection and of anal squamous intraepithelial lesions in the studied population were, respectively, 79% and 39.1%. High-resolution anoscopy

The Heald stent was placed trans-anally without the need for anaesthetic and an 18Fr Foley was placed through this. A presacral collection was drained through the stent, allowing the patient to be discharged after a week without the need to return to the operating theatre. The Heald stent may be used to successfully drain a presacral collection by double decompression of the rectum and the presacral space.

    Full Text Available Abstract Men who have sex with men (MSM especially those who are HIV positive are at risk for HPV-associated anal cancer. We systematically reviewed studies with data on the prevalence of vaccine preventable anal HPV among men who have sex with men aged 25 or younger and identified 6 studies. None of these studies were specifically designed to determine the prevalence of HPV in this population. Available data, albeit limited, suggest many young MSM may not already be HPV infected. Further studies using representative sampling focused on teenage MSM are required to confirm this.

    A novel artificial anal sphincter system has been developed to simulate the normal physiology of the human anorectum. With the goal of engineering a safe and reliable device, the model of human colonic blood flow has been built and the relationship between the colonic blood flow rate and the operating occlusion pressure of the anorectum is achieved. The tissue ischemia is analyzed based on constitutive relations for human anorectum. The results suggest that at the planned operating occlusion pressure of less than 4 kPa the artificial anal sphincter should not risk the vaseularity of the human colon.

    Full Text Available CONTEXT: Intestinal constipation - a common symptom among the general population - is more frequent in women. It may be secondary to an improper diet or organic or functional disturbances, such as dyskinesia of the pelvic floor. This is basically characterized by the absence of relaxation or paradoxical contraction of the pelvic floor and anal sphincter during evacuation. OBJECTIVE: To analyze, by manometric data, the anal pressure variation at rest, during evacuation effort by using the Valsalva maneuver and forced post-expiratory apnea in subjects with secondary constipation. METHODS: Twenty-one patients (19 females - 90.4% with a mean age of 47.5 years old (23-72 were studied. The diagnosis was performed using anorectal manometry, with a catheter containing eight channels disposed at the axial axis, measuring the proximal (1 and distal (2 portions of the anal orifice. The elevation of the pressure values in relation to the resting with the evacuation effort was present in all patients. The Agachan score was used for clinical evaluation of constipation. The variables studied were: mean anal pressure of the anal orifice for 20 seconds at rest, the effort of evacuation using Valsalva maneuver and the effort of evacuation during apnea after forced expiration, as well as the area under the curve of the manometric tracing at moments Valsalva and apnea. RESULTS: The analysis of the mean values of the anal pressure variation at rest evidenced difference between proximal and distal channels (P = 0.007, independent of the moment and tendency to differ during moments Valsalva and apnea (P = 0.06. The mean of values of the area under the manometric tracing curve showed differences between moments Valsalva and apnea (P = 0.0008, either at the proximal portion or at the distal portion of the anal orifice. CONCLUSION: The effort of evacuation associated with postexpiratory apnea, when compared with the effort associated with the Valsalva maneuver, provides

  19. O tempo de trabalho: uma chave analítica

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Henrique Amorim

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available O tempo de trabalho é uma noção central para a análise marxista da sociedade capitalista. De Karl Marx aos nossos dias, a discussão sobre a redução do tempo de trabalho ganhou várias interpretações. Entre elas está aquela que aponta para a progressiva redução do tempo de trabalho. Progressiva, nesse caso, não é entendida com base em sua própria contradição, isto é, como uma necessidade do capital para sua valorização, mas sim como um processo de redução crescente do tempo do trabalho que no limite colocaria a relação de capital em xeque. A partir dessa interpretação, a tendência de redução do tempo de trabalho anunciaria à extinção das relações de produção capitalistas. Estaríamos, com isso, diante de uma perspectiva que se fundamenta em um automatismo social e, portanto, que pressupõe o fim do capitalismo de maneira determinista. Retomando as implicações mais centrais que a reestruturação produtiva, chamada de toyotista, proporcionou, sobretudo aquelas relativas à substituição massiva de trabalhadores por tecnologia informacionais e microeletrônicas, temos como objetivo desse artigo revisitar a noção de tempo de trabalho, tentando, com isso, demonstrar a fragilidade das teses que pressupõe um esgotamento estrutural da sociedade capitalista como fruto de um automatismo do movimento interno de reprodução do capital. Concluímos que estas teses, na prática, mistificam o papel central da luta de classes, primeiro, como elemento determinante do processo de constituição das forças produtivas capitalistas e, segundo, para a superação da subalternidade do trabalho em relação ao capital.

    2008-07-01

    Treatment for human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated anal canal disease has been unsatisfactory. The objective of our study was to determine the treatment outcome in our cohort with anal HPV disease. Overall, 181 patients were evaluated over a median period of 19.1 months (range = 2.8-125.5). Eighty-eight patients (48.6%) with high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN) and 82 patients (45.3%) with low-grade AIN underwent treatment. One hundred and forty-one patients (77.9%) received laser ablative treatment as an outpatient procedure. The treatment yielded cure, defined as a disease-free state at 12 months after treatment, in 63.0% (114/181). Median time to cure for the cohort was 31.5 months (95% confidence interval: 23.0-40.0). Treatment outcome showed no evidence of being affected by age, sexual preference, history of smoking or presence of high-grade disease. Median time to cure was significantly affected by a positive HIV status (P = 0.02) and the extent (volume) of the disease (P = 0.01). Contrary to the current view that treatment of HPV-related anal disease is difficult, unrewarding due to recurrences and may lead to substantial morbidity, we demonstrate that effective treatment is possible for both low- and high-grade AIN. These findings should help with the general desire to introduce screening for AIN for at-risk groups. PMID:18574114

  17. New approach to anal cancer: Individualized therapy based on sentinel lymph node biopsy

    2012-01-01

    Oncological treatment is currently directed toward a tailored therapy concept.Squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal could be considered a suitable platform to test new therapeutic strategies to minimize treatment morbidity.Standard of care for patients with anal canal cancer consists of a combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.This treatment has led to a high rate of local control and a 60% cure rate with preservation of the anal sphincter,thus replacing surgical abdominoperineal resection.Lymph node metastases represent a critical independent prognostic factor for local recurrence and survival.Mesorectal and iliac lymph nodes are usually included in the radiation field,whereas the inclusion of inguinal regions still remains controversial because of the subsequent adverse side effects.Sentinel lymph node biopsies could clearly identify inguinal node-positive patients eligible for therapeutic groin irradiation.A sentinel lymph node navigation procedure is reported here to be a feasible and effective method for establishing the true inguinal node status in patients suffering from anal canal cancer.Based on the results of sentinel node biopsies,a selective approach could be proposed where node-positive patients could be selected for inguinal node irradiation while node-negative patients could take advantage of inguinal sparing irradiation,thus avoiding toxic side effects.

  18. A case of anal canal cancer which developed fournier's syndrome after chemoradiotherapy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Fournier's syndrome is an acute necrotizing fasciitis of the perineum which progresses rapidly, resulting in poor prognosis if not treated appropriately at an early stage. Here we report a case of anal canal cancer which developed Fournier's syndrome after chemoradiotherapy (CRT). A 79-year-old man with anal canal cancer received a double-barrel sigmoid colostomy followed by concurrent CRT (50.4 Gy) with S-1 (100 mg/body). Although the patient was discharged after CRT, he developed a fever at 10 days after discharge and visited our hospital complaining of pain in the anal region. He was hospitalized with a diagnosis of Fournier's syndrome. Extensive drainage, administration of antibiotics, additional drainage and continuous irrigation of the affected region improved the symptoms of Fournier's syndrome. Multiple liver metastases were found on a CT scan at 3 months after onset of Fournier's syndrome, and the patient was transferred to another hospital for systemic chemotherapy. There have been no reports on the onset of Fournier's syndrome after CRT for rectal cancer with anal canal involvement; we report this case with a review of the literature. (author)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    To evaluate quality of life (QOL) and outcome of patients with anal carcinoma treated with short split-course chemoradiation (CRT). From 1991 to 2005, 58 patients with anal cancer were curatively treated with CRT. External beam radiotherapy (52 Gy/26 fractions) with elective groin irradiation (24 Gy) was applied in 2 series divided by a median gap of 12 days. Chemotherapy including fluorouracil and Mitomycin-C was delivered in two sequences. Long-term QOL was assessed using the site-specific EORTC QLQ-CR29 and the global QLQ-C30 questionnaires. Five-year local control, colostomy-free survival, and overall survival were 78%, 94% and 80%, respectively. The global QOL score according to the QLQ-C30 was good with 70 out of 100. The QLQ-CR29 questionnaire revealed that 77% of patients were mostly satisfied with their body image. Significant anal pain or fecal incontinence was infrequently reported. Skin toxicity grade 3 or 4 was present in 76% of patients and erectile dysfunction was reported in 100% of male patients. Short split-course CRT for anal carcinoma seems to be associated with good local control, survival and long-term global QOL. However, it is also associated with severe acute skin toxicity and sexual dysfunction. Implementation of modern techniques such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) might be considered to reduce toxicity

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Resumo O presente artigo discute as correntes teóricas referenciadas acerca dos estudos sobre burocracia, à luz da adequabilidade do desenho de pesquisa adotado. Objetivou-se expor os elementos constitutivos das diferentes abordagens analíticas da dinâmica burocrática, através da identificação do perfil ontológico e epistemológico das teorias selecionadas, com vistas à redução das tensões entre problema/conhecimento inerente à pesquisa científica, como identificada por Popper. O estudo consistiu de um survey da literatura referenciada, onde adotou-se o método analítico-discursivo com vistas a responder a pergunta de pesquisa, a saber, qual o padrão ontológico e epistemológico mais adequado para ancorar os estudos organizacionais, e qual desenho de pesquisa melhor explica o funcionamento das burocracias? A partir da metodologia empreendida identificou-se, como principal achado do estudo, que as teorias de “quarta geração”, enquadradas na corrente analítica do realismo, mostram-se mais consistentes para explicar a dinâmica organizacional. Os resultados encontrados apontam para a quebra da dicotomia quali-quanti nos estudos organizacionais ao se ancorar as pesquisas sobre burocracia, no campo da Ciência Política, aos padrões ontológicos e epistemológicos das teorias denominadas de quarta geração. A constituição de um desenho de pesquisa “híbrido”, como a corrente analítica do realismo possibilita e na qual a pesquisa do tipo nested analysis se enquadra, acrescenta assim avanços teóricos significativos na explicação do funcionamento das instituições formais ao viabilizar o mapeamento de regularidades empíricas aliado a identificação de especificidades da dimensão subjetiva dos stakeholders.

    Full Text Available The mutagenic activities of 16 anti-parasite drugs were screened by the Simultest in both qualitative (spot test and quantitative (plate incorporation assays with a Salmonella typhimurium pool composed by the indicator strains TA97, TA 98, TA100 and TA102. Four anti Chagas' disease drugs (nifurtimox, benznidazole, CL 64,855, and MK 436 and two anti-amebae drugs (metronidazole and tinidazole gave positive results in qualitative tests and incorporation of rat liver microsomes did not alter the results. Comparative dose response curves of the mutagenic activities of CL 64,855, metronidazole and benznidazole obtained by the simultest and by individual Salmonella indicator strains demonstrated that both approachs have similar sensitivities. The results corroborate the validity of the Simultest, as a simplified, fast and economic version of the Ames test in preliminary screening of potential mutagenic drugs.As atividades mutagênicas de 16 drogas com ação anti-parasitária foram avaliadas pelo Simultest em ensaios qualitativos (spot testes e quantitativos (incorporação em placa com uma mistura das linhagens indicadoras de Salmonella typhimurium TA97, TA98, TA100 e TA102.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background New sphincter-saving approaches have been applied in the treatment of perianal fistula in order to avoid the risk of fecal incontinence. Among them, the fibrin glue technique is popular because of its simplicity and repeatability. The aim of this review is to compare the fibrin glue application to surgery alone, considering the healing and complication rates. Methods We performed a systematic review searching for published randomized and controlled clinical trials without any language restriction by using electronic databases. All these studies were assessed as to whether they compared conventional surgical treatment versus fibrin glue treatment in patients with anal fistulas, in order to establish both the efficacy and safety of each treatment. We used Review Manager 5 to conduct the review. Results The healing rate is higher in those patients who underwent the conventional surgical treatment (P = 0,68, although the treatment with fibrin glue gives no evidence of anal incontinence (P = 0,08. Furthermore two subgroup analyses were performed: fibrin glue in combination with intra-adhesive antibiotics versus fibrin glue alone and anal fistula plug versus fibrin glue. In the first subgroup there were not differences in healing (P = 0,65. Whereas in the second subgroup analysis the healing rate is statistically significant for the patients who underwent the anal fistula plug treatment instead of the fibrin glue treatment (P = 0,02. Conclusion In literature there are only two randomized controlled trials comparing the conventional surgical management versus the fibrin glue treatment in patients with anal fistulas. Although from our statistical analysis we cannot find any statistically significant result, the healing rate remains higher in patients who underwent the conventional surgical treatment (P = 0,68, and the anal incontinence rate is very low in the fibrin glue treatment group (P = 0,08. Anyway the limited collected data do

    Purpose: Pre- and post-treatment staging of anal cancer are often inaccurate. The role of positron emission tomograpy-computed tomography (PET-CT) in anal cancer is yet to be defined. The aim of the study was to compare PET-CT with CT scan, sentinel node biopsy results of inguinal lymph nodes, and anal biopsy results in staging and in follow-up of anal cancer. Methods and Materials: Fifty-three consecutive patients diagnosed with anal cancer underwent PET-CT. Results were compared with computed tomography (CT), performed in 40 patients, and with sentinel node biopsy (SNB) (41 patients) at pretreatment workup. Early follow-up consisted of a digital rectal examination, an anoscopy, a PET-CT scan, and anal biopsies performed at 1 and 3 months after the end of treatment. Data sets were then compared. Results: At pretreatment assessment, anal cancer was identified by PET-CT in 47 patients (88.7%) and by CT in 30 patients (75%). The detection rates rose to 97.9% with PET-CT and to 82.9% with CT (P=.042) when the 5 patients who had undergone surgery prior to this assessment and whose margins were positive at histological examination were censored. Perirectal and/or pelvic nodes were considered metastatic by PET-CT in 14 of 53 patients (26.4%) and by CT in 7 of 40 patients (17.5%). SNB was superior to both PET-CT and CT in detecting inguinal lymph nodes. PET-CT upstaged 37.5% of patients and downstaged 25% of patients. Radiation fields were changed in 12.6% of patients. PET-CT at 3 months was more accurate than PET-CT at 1 month in evaluating outcomes after chemoradiation therapy treatment: sensitivity was 100% vs 66.6%, and specificity was 97.4% vs 92.5%, respectively. Median follow-up was 20.3 months. Conclusions: In this series, PET-CT detected the primary tumor more often than CT. Staging of perirectal/pelvic or inguinal lymph nodes was better with PET-CT. SNB was more accurate in staging inguinal lymph nodes.

  10. Oral and anal vaccination confers full protection against enteric redmouth disease (ERM in rainbow trout.

    Full Text Available The effect of oral vaccines against bacterial fish diseases has been a topic for debate for decades. Recently both M-like cells and dendritic cells have been discovered in the intestine of rainbow trout. It is therefore likely that antigens reaching the intestine can be taken up and thereby induce immunity in orally vaccinated fish. The objective of this project was to investigate whether oral and anal vaccination of rainbow trout induces protection against an experimental waterborne infection with the pathogenic enterobacteria Yersinia ruckeri O1 biotype 1 the causative agent of enteric redmouth disease (ERM. Rainbow trout were orally vaccinated with AquaVac ERM Oral (MERCK Animal Health or an experimental vaccine bacterin of Y. ruckeri O1. Both vaccines were tested with and without a booster vaccination four months post the primary vaccination. Furthermore, two groups of positive controls were included, one group receiving the experimental oral vaccine in a 50 times higher dose, and the other group receiving a single dose administered anally in order to bypass the stomach. Each group was bath challenged with 6.3 × 10(8 CFU/ml Y. ruckeri, six months post the primary vaccination. The challenge induced significant mortality in all the infected groups except for the groups vaccinated anally with a single dose or orally with the high dose of bacterin. Both of these groups had 100% survival. These results show that a low dose of Y. ruckeri bacterin induces full protection when the bacterin is administered anally. Oral vaccination also induces full protection, however, at a dose 50 times higher than if the fish were to be vaccinated anally. This indicates that much of the orally fed antigen is digested in the stomach before it reaches the second segment of the intestine where it can be taken up as immunogenic antigens and presented to lymphocytes.

    Além do cálculo semi-analítico de elementos próprios dos asteróides Troianos (Beaugé & Roig 2001, Icarus 153, 391), recentemente foi apresentado um novo conjunto destes elementos próprios determinado através de uma teoria sintética (Knenezevic & Milani 2003, comunicação pessoal). As bases de dados contendo estas determinações estão disponiveis na pagina web do Asteroid Dynamical Site (http://hamilton.dm.unipi.it/cgi-bin/astdys/astibo). Nesta comunicação apresentamos os primeiros resultados de um estudo comparativo entre ambos conjuntos de elementos próprios, analisando suas vantagens e desvantagens, assim como os limites de precisão de cada conjunto. Mostramos que os elementos próprios sintéticos são mais precisos que os smi-analíticos para grandes amplitudes de libração do ângulo s = l-lJup, embora acontece o contrario para os corpos cuja amplitude de libração é muito pequena. Finalmente discutimos a influencia destes erros na determinação de familias de asteroides e da estrutura resonante em torno dos pontos Lagrangeanos L4 e L5.

    1994-04-01

    The aim of the study was to compare in terms of patient comfort, surgical requirements and anaesthetic safety, the difference between epidural and general anaesthesia in patients undergoing surgery of the anal canal. The study was undertaken on 50 adult patients undergoing anal surgery. By random allocation 25 were given a general anaesthetic while 25 were given a low-dose epidural using 0.375% bupivacaine. Advantages and disadvantages of both methods were noted in the study. It was concluded that low-dose epidural is a more effective means of providing analgesia, while maintaining adequate sphincter tone for surgery on the anal canal, than general anaesthesia.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Red-hot chili pepper and other spices have been blamed for causing or exacerbating symptoms of anal pathologies like anal fissure and hemorrhoids. AIM: To determine if consumption of chilies increases symptoms of acute anal fissures. METHODS: Individual patients were randomized to receive capsules containing chili or placebo for one week in addition to analgesics and fiber supplement. Patients were asked to note score for symptoms like pain, anal burning, and pruritus during the study period. After 1 week, cross over treatment was administered to the same group of patients with the same methodology and results were noted at the end of 2 weeks. RESULTS: Fifty subjects were recruited for this study. Forty three of them completed the trial (22 in the chili group and 21 in the placebo group. The daily mean pain score was significantly lower in the placebo group in the study period. Score 2.05 in chili group and 0.97 in placebo group. There was a significant burning sensation experienced by the patients in the chili group (score 1.85 for the chili group vs 0.71 for the placebo group. Patient’s mean recorded improvement score was significantly higher after taking placebo. Eighty one point three percent patients preferred placebo while 13.9% preferred chilies. Two patients had no preference. CONCLUSION: Consumption of chili does increase the symptoms of acute anal fissure and reduces patient compliance.RACIONAL: A pimenta vermelha e outras especiarias têm sido responsabilizadas por agravar a sintomatologia das doenças anais, tais como fissuras e hemorróidas.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Apresentar os resultados dos exames de manometria anorretal realizados com um aparelho brasileiro computadorizado, que utiliza o método do balão para a caracterização do reflexo inibitório reto anal na investigação diagnóstica da doença de Hirschsprung, em crianças com constipação crônica. MÉTODOS: Foram analisados os resultados de 372 manometrias anorretais realizadas consecutivamente em pacientes com constipação crônica. O equipamento utilizado (Proctosystem-Viotti possui dois canais utilizados para registar as pressões do esfíncter anal e da ampola retal por meio de balões conectados por sonda aos transdutores de pressão. Os valores pressóricos são avaliados em computador utilizando software específico. A ausência do reflexo inibitório reto-anal foi considerada como sugestiva de doença de Hirschsprung, sendo o diagnóstico confirmado pelos métodos tradicionais. RESULTADOS: Em 14 (3,8% dos 372 exames não foi caracterizado o reflexo inibitório reto-anal. Em nove destes 14 pacientes o diagnóstico de doença de Hirschsprung foi confirmado pela caracterização de ausência de células ganglionares na avaliação anatomopatológica. Nos outros cinco pacientes não foi realizada a biópsia retal em função da evolução clínica satisfatória com o tratamento clínico da constipação, sendo que em quatro a presença de reflexo inibitório reto-anal foi caracterizada por exame de manometria anorretal realizado posteriormente. CONCLUSÃO: O equipamento utilizado foi apropriado para a realização da manometria anorretal permitindo descartar o diagnóstico de doença de Hirschsprung em 86,5% dos pacientes. Foi identificado um pequeno grupo de pacientes nos quais, em mais da metade, o diagnóstico definitivo de doença de Hirschsprung foi estabelecido.OBJECTIVE: to evaluate results of anorectal manometry performed with equipment made in Brazil for the screening of Hirschsprung's disease in children with
