    Full Text Available Los valores séricos son el indicador comúnmente usado para conocer el estado de vitaminas A y E. Desafortunadamente, su uso es impráctico en evaluaciones poblacionales, debido a que involucra la toma de sangre venosa, centrifugación y almacenamiento en congelación antes de su análisis. El objetivo de este estudio fue validar el uso de gotas de sangre seca (GSS para la evaluación de vitaminas A y E, comparándolas con el retinol y tocoferol en suero venoso y capilar. Muestras de sangre venosa (SV y capilar (SC y GSS capilar (GSSC se tomaron simultáneamente de 27 donadores adultos sanos. Las muestras de sangre, tanto de GSS como de suero, se prepararon y se mantuvieron a -70ºC hasta su análisis por HPLC. Las diferencias entre las muestras individuales fueron calculadas por análisis de varianza (ANOVA. El Coeficiente de Correlación de Pearson se calculó para estimar el grado de varianza de las concentraciones tanto de retinol como de tocoferol de las diferentes muestras. Las correlaciones para retinol fueron: SV/SC = 0.89; SV/GSSC = 0.85 y SC/GSSC = 0.88; para tocoferol fueron: SV/SC = 0.97; SV/GSSC = 0.94 y SC/GSSC = 0.96. El uso de esta nueva forma de muestra para evaluación de vitaminas A y E permitirá el acceso a poblaciones previamente inaccesibles.

    Full Text Available Relatamos a associação impar entre esclerose múltipla (EM, tumor medular e tumor intracraniano em uma paciente de 63 anos de idade e com EM há dez anos com evolução em surtos de remissão e exacerbação. Havia melhora dos sintomas com o uso de corticosteróides. Em 1997 apresentou paraparesia crural e do membro superior direito, de instalação progressiva e que não respondeu à corticoterapia. A ressonância magnética da coluna cervical evidenciou tumor intramedular, que se revelou um ependimoma, e a do crânio, a presença de meningioma parietal à esquerda. Ressaltamos a associação incomum entre tumores do sistema nervoso central e EM e enfatizamos a necessidade de investigação clínica e por imagem diante de uma manifestação ou evolução clínica incomum no curso da doença.We report the association a multiple sclerosis (MS, spinal cord tumour and intracranial tumor in a 63 years-old female patient with a 10 years history of relapsing/remitting MS. Symptoms usually remitted in response to costicosteroid therapy. In 1997 the patient presented with paraparesis and paresis of right arm which did not respond to corticotherapy. A spinal RMI revealed in the cervical spinal an intra spinal cord tumour, further diagnosed as ependymoma, and a parietal region meningioma. We call attention to this rare association of central nervous system tumour and MS, enphasizing the need for investigation of new and uncommon symptoms during the evolution of MS.

    Full Text Available A doença de Creutzfeldt-Jakob (DCJ é a encefalopatia espongiforme subaguda transmissível mais frequente nos seres humanos. Aproximadamente 85% dos casos pertencem à forma esporádica da doença. Os outros 15% consistem na forma genética e iatrogênica. Relatamos o caso de uma paciente com a forma esporádica da doença de Creutzfeldt-Jakob, com comprometimento medular e apresentação clínica caracterizada por síndrome demencial e cerebelar, miofasciculação com arreflexia difusa e crises convulsivas do tipo tônico-clônico generalizada. É rara a associação das duas últimas manifestações clínicas. O caso foi considerado como provável DCJ até confirmação por autópsia e imunohistoquímica. Concluímos que se deve sempre pensar na DCJ em pacientes que apresentam demência rapidamente progressiva e, na ausência de sinais piramidais ou extrapiramidais, pensar em acometimento periférico e/ou medular.Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD is the most common subacute transmissible spongiform encephalopathy. Approximately 85% of the cases are sporadic. The remaining 15% consist of genetic and iatrogenic forms. We report a sporadic form of CJD with spinal cord involvement and a clinical manifestation characterized by dementia and cerebellar syndrome, myofasciculation with absent reflexes and seizures. The two last manifestations are rare. The clinical hypothesis was probable CJD which was confirmed with autopsy and immunohistochemistry. We conclude that CJD should always be suspected when rapidly progressive dementia occurs and the absence of pyramidal or extrapyramidal signs suggest a spinal cord and/or peripheral nerve involvement.

Medullary cystic disease is an important cause of renal failure in adolescent patients. Imaging methods play a primary role in the diagnosis of these diseases. Cysts are characteristically seen in the renal medulla and corticomedullary junction whereas kidneys may be of normal to small size. In this article we present the ultrasonography and computed tomography findings of a female adolescent patient with characteristic clinical picture of medullary cystic disease.

  10. Management of primary spinal chondrosarcoma: report of two cases causing cord compression Manejo dos condrosarcomas espinhais primários: relato de dois casos causando compressão medular

    2004-09-01

    Full Text Available Chondrosarcomas are malignant tumors that rarely grow inside the spinal canal. Prognosis depends on histological features, patient's age and surgical margins free from tumor. Response to radio and chemotherapy is poor. Ideal treatment consists of total " en-block" resection, not always achievable due to limitation of location, compromise of stability and risk of inducing neurological deficits. Two cases of spinal chondrosarcoma causing cord compression are reported, located in the cervical and thoracic spine. Microsurgical technique consisted of initial debulking followed by removal of margins until limits free from tumor were obtained. Total resection was accomplished and neurological function improved in both cases. Follow-up has been seven and one year respectively, with no evidence of recurrence and preserved neurological functions. Association between chondrosarcoma and estrogen-dependent tumor has been confirmed in this report. Although " en-block" resection of a chondrosarcoma should be tried whenever possible, tumor fragmentation should be considered in difficult cases, as in the present report, in which a long period free from recurrence with good quality of life can be obtained.Os condrosarcomas são tumores malignos, raramente localizados no interior do canal espinhal, com prognóstico dependente do grau histológico do tumor, idade do paciente e margens cirúrgicas livres. Esses tumores apresentam pouca resposta à radio e quimioterapia. O tratamento ideal consiste em ressecção tumoral em bloco, condição particularmente difícil em se tratando de tumores causando compressão medular, devido à localização da lesão, comprometimento da estabilidade axial e necessidade da manutenção ou recuperação da integridade da função neurológica do paciente. Relatamos dois casos de condrossarcomas causando compressão medular, um na coluna cervical e outro na torácica, submetidos a cirurgia com esvaziamento tumoral seguido de remo

    Full Text Available La compresión medular es una urgencia oncológica y neurológica, cuyo diagnóstico y tratamiento precoz son los factores clave para evitar el daño neurológico severo e irreversible. La parálisis, la pérdida de la sensibilidad y la alteración del control de los esfínteres, son la consecuencia final del proceso, y supone una fuente de morbilidad importante del paciente oncológico, además de estar relacionado con un menor tiempo de supervivencia. La invasión del cuerpo vertebral por diseminación hematógena, es la causa más frecuente de la compresión medular. En ocasiones llega a crear inestabilidad mecánica vertebral que supone una verdadera urgencia ortopédica. El dolor es el síntoma más precoz y frecuente. Los signos y síntomas van apareciendo a medida que el proceso avanza, pasando por la debilidad motora, alteración en la sensibilidad hasta llegar a la parálisis e incontinencia de esfínteres, como consecuencia del daño neurológico completo. La historia clínica y exploración física deben hacer sospechar el nivel donde se puede estar desarrollando la compresión medular, y la exploración complementaria más importante es la RM de la columna completa, que debe ser solicitada de inmediato para decidir e iniciar el tratamiento. El tratamiento es individualizado y debe de instaurarse con precocidad. En general, los corticoides en combinación con el tratamiento oncológico radioterápico y/o la cirugía son las armas terapéuticas a utilizar.Medullar compression is an oncological and neurological emergency, whose diagnosis and early treatment are key factors for avoiding severe and irreversible neurological damage. Paralysis, loss of consciousness and alteration in control of the sphincters are the final consequence of the process, and represent an important source of morbidity of the oncology patient, besides being related to a shorter time of survival. The invasion of the vertebral body by haematogenous dissemination is

    Full Text Available Alopecia androgenética é tratada com frequência por meio de microtransplante capilar, téc nica em que os fios transplantados geralmente não caem, pois mantêm características da área doadora, mais resistente. O líquen plano pilar é uma alopecia cicatricial com permanente destruição pilosa. Este artigo relata dois casos de lesões compatíveis com líquen plano pilar em áreas receptora e doadora póstransplante. A dominância da área doadora foi aparentemente sobrepujada pelo líquen plano pilar, que deve ter gerado a queda dos fios. Relatos semelhantes são raros. À suspeita de líquen plano pilar, devese biopsiar o couro cabeludo e evitar o transplante durante a atividade da doença.Androgenetic alopecia is often treated by follicular unit transplantation, a technique that involves minimal risk of hair loss because of the more resistant nature of the donor area. Lichen planopilaris is a cicatricial alopecia that causes permanent destruction of hair follicles. We report two cases of post-transplantation lesions compatible with lichen planopilaris in both recipient and donor areas. The quality of the hair follicles in the donor area was apparently compromised by lichen planopilaris, the probable cause of hair loss. Similar reports are rare. When lichen planopilaris is suspected, a biopsy of the scalp must be performed to avoid transplantation during disease activity.

    Full Text Available Uma cadela da raça Yorkshire Terrier apresentou hematêmese, distensão abdominal, poliúria e polidipsia. Após o exame clínico do paciente, estabeleceu-se a suspeita clínica de nefropatia. Os resultados dos exames laboratoriais revelaram anemia normocítica normocrômica e concentrações séricas de uréia (306mg/dl e de creatinina (3,6mg/dl acima dos valores de referência. Ao ultra-som bidimensional observaram-se áreas císticas hipoecóicas e anecóicas, padrão renal hipercogênico e perda da relação corticomedular. À necropsia, a região medular apresentou grande quantidade de cistos pequenos em meio a tecido conjuntivo fibroso. A lesão tubulointersticial cortical foi a responsável pela insuficiência renal resultante. Firmou-se diagnóstico de nefrite tubulointersticial.A Yorkshire Terrier bitch presented hematemesis, abdominal distention, poliuria, and polidipsia. After clinical examination, it was established a clinical suspect of nephropathy. The complementary exams showed normochromic and normocytic anemia and serum concentrations of ureia (306mg/dl and creatinine (3.6mg/dl above the references values. At two-dimensional ultrasound hipoechoic and anechoic cystic areas were observed, as well as hiperechogenic renal pattern and corticomedullary ratio loss. At necropsy, the medullary region presented many small cysts in a fibrous connective tissue. Cortical tubulointesticial lesion was responsible to the resulting renal failure. It was established a tubulointersticial nephritis diagnosis.

    Full Text Available La recuperación de capilares de acero 316L utilizados en pozos geotérmicos neutros, por medio de soldadura orbital autógena, se evalúa desde el punto de vista de su resistencia a la corrosión en las condiciones de utilización, mediante técnicas electroquímicas básicas. En el pretratamiento se encuentra que es más conveniente realizar un decapado químico previo a la soldadura por 5 minutos. Mientras que posteriormente a la soldadura, la aplicación de tratamiento térmico de reducción de tensiones no se justifica desde el punto de vista de la resistencia a la corrosión. También se plantea la comparación de los capilares soldados respecto a capilares nuevos y usados, teniendo los capilares soldados un comportamiento intermedio entre ambos.

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available A anestesia caudal foi proposta pela primeira vez em 1926 e diversas técnicas foram desenvolvidas para anestesiar os nervos espinhais lombares e sacrais. Os métodos para anestesia epidural exigem conhecimento da anatomia da região envolvida. Desta forma, objetivou-se determinar a topografia do cone medular da preguiça (Bradipus variegatus, para fornecer recursos aos profissionais da área clínica para que, desta forma, seja possível a realização de anestesia epidural nesta espécie silvestre de nossa fauna. Foram dissecados quatro exemplares adultos de preguiça, dois machos e duas fêmeas que foram a óbito por causas naturais e obtidos junto ao Parque Zoobotânico do Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi, Belém/Pará. Após a dissecação observou-se que o cone medular encontra-se entre as vértebras L3 e S1 com comprimento médio de 2,7cm, e a intumescência lombar apresentou comprimento médio de 1,0cm, estando localizada entre L1 e L3 nos quatro animais estudados. Desta forma, conclui-se que o melhor local para a realização de anestesia epidural na preguiça está entre as vértebras L1 e L3

    The authors report the case of a 62-year-old male with a 4 month history of weight loss and a 2 day complaint of weakness and paraesthesia on the lower limbs. A computed tomography myelogram revealed a mass in the posterior mediastinum associated with destruction of the vertebral body, spinal canal extension and irregular esophageal wall thickening. The patient was later submitted to a barium esophagogram that showed an irregular filling defect. A biopsy confirmed the presence of a squamous cell carcinoma. This is the first report in the Latin-American literature (Lilacs) of a patient with an esophageal carcinoma with spinal canal extension and spinal cord compression syndrome at initial presentation.

    Silvia M. M. Magalhães

    2003-06-01

    Full Text Available A biópsia de medula óssea é parte integrante do estadiamento e seguimento de pacientes com doenças hematológicas. Nódulos linfóides são um achado comum, usualmente observados em associação com doenças inflamatórias crônicas, infecção, hemólise, síndromes mieloproliferativas e doenças auto-imunes. São, em geral, considerados reacionais. Sendo a medula óssea o sítio extranodal mais comumente envolvido nos linfomas foliculares, o diagnóstico diferencial mais importante é a infiltração medular por doença linfoproliferativa. Do ponto de vista prático, os infiltrados linfóides são, em geral, facilmente distinguíveis ao estudo histológico. Agregados reacionais são pequenos, têm bordas delimitadas, são compostos por uma população celular heterogênea e têm localização central. Nódulos malignos infiltram a medula óssea na região paratrabecular e são compostos por células clivadas. A análise imunofenotípica, utilizando um painel de anticorpos monoclonais, é capaz de definir a linhagem celular, subpopulação e estágio de diferenciação da população neoplásica, contribuindo para a confirmação do diagnóstico. Nos casos controversos, a análise molecular da proliferação linfóide pode ser útil. A monoclonalidade pode ser demonstrada pela restrição de cadeias leves ou através do rearranjo do DNA da cadeia pesada das imunoglobulinas. Idealmente, os resultados da análise molecular devem ser interpretados em conjunto com a análise morfológica e imunofenotípica.

    Full Text Available Relato de um caso de astrocitoma grau II com metástase medular ao nível da terceira vértebra dorsal. O nódulo intradural determinou sinais e sintomas de compressão medular. O diagnóstico clínico foi confirmado por mielografia descendente com lipiodol e mielocintilografia com I131 - albumina. A paciente foi submetida a laminectomia para exerese da metástase. A revisão da literatura mostra que o fator mais importante para a ocorrência das metástase dos tumores encefálicos é a invasão do sistema ventricular e/ou espaço subaracnóideo periencefálico pela neoplasia, sem relação com o ato operatório.

    Full Text Available Thymomas are tumors characterized by a remarkable morphological heterogeneity and variable clinical behavior. This tumor has unique clinical associations, most notably with hematological abnormalities and myasthenia gravis. According with the Müller-Hermelink criteria, there are significant differences between the histological types of thymomas and the association with myasthenia gravis. Among the different histological types, medullary thymoma is the least frequent variant associated with this autoimmune disease. In this report we describe a case of medullary thymoma presenting in a 71-year- old woman with a myasthenic syndrome.Os timomas são tumores caracterizados por grande heterogeneidade morfológica e comportamento clínico variável. Este tumor apresenta associações clínicas singulares, principalmente com doenças hematológicas e com a miastenia gravis. De acordo com a classificação de Müller-Hermelink, existem diferenças significativas entre as variedades histológicas dos timomas e sua associação com a miastenia gravis. Entre os diferentes tipos histológicos, o timoma medular é a variante menos frequentemente associada com esta doença autoimune. Neste relato, nós descrevemos caso de timoma medular em uma paciente de 71 anos de idade com síndrome miastênica.

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available Este trabajo consiste en un estudio de transferencia simultánea de calor y masa con la finalidad de determinar la matriz de coeficientes de difusión multicomponente en fase líquida. La literatura reporta una fórmula semi-empírica desarrollada por Bandrowski y Kubaczka para calcular la matriz de coeficientes de difusión multicomponente, método que separa las contribuciones cinética y termodinámica a la transferencia de masa e incluye un exponente empírico para realizar cálculos más precisos. El presente trabajo propone la estimación del exponente empírico en un amplio rango de temperaturas estudiando la redistribución de composición en un capilar no isotérmico y no saturado, tomando en consideración las no idealidades descritas por la matriz de coeficientes de factores termodinámicos. Para tal fin, se ha utilizado el sistema ternario agua-etanol-acetona a dos diferentes rangos de temperaturas y dos diferentes grados de saturación. Los resultados muestran que el método es efectivo ya que se obtuvieron valores consistentes del exponente empírico que modifica la matriz de factores termodinámicos. Además, se evidencia que el exponente es dependiente de la temperatura.

O diagnóstico de esquistossomose sistêmica foi confirmado pelo encontro de ovos de Schistosoma mansoni nas fezes e pela positividade das reações intradèrmica e de fixação de complemento no sangue. O diagnóstico clínico de provável esquistossomose medular foi reforçado pelas alterações meningo-parenquimatosas do liqüido cefalorraqueano, destacando-se hiperci-tose média com eosinofilorraquia e, particularmente, a alta positividade da reação de fixação de complemento para bilharziose. Antes que pudesse ser instituído tratamento antimonial o paciente faleceu. À necropsia foram verificadas lesões que costumam ocorrer na esquistossomose visceral, mantendo-se o diagnóstico clínico, apesar de não terem sido encontrados ovos nos tecidos.

    Full Text Available Objetivo. Evaluar macroscópica y difractograficamente la respuesta ósea al compuesto hidroxiapatita–lignina implantado en canal medular tibial de conejos. Materiales y métodos. Se utilizaron 20 conejos de raza Nueva Zelanda, en cada uno, la tibia izquierda fue tratada con compuesto y la tibia derecha no fue, sirviendo como control. Se realizó una falla ósea de 4 mm de diámetro en la superficie lateral proximal tibial, hasta alcanzar el canal medular. Del compuesto, 1000 mg fueron ablandados con 10 gotas de solución salina utilizando parte de la masa para revestir la rosca del clavo intramedular de Schanz en acero F 138, de diámetro 2.5 mm para hueso cortical y la otra parte introducida en el canal medular con el auxilio de catéter calibre 16 y jeringa. El clavo revestido se introdujo al canal medular por la falla ósea. Los planos anatómicos fueron suturados. Lo mismo fue realizado en el control, sin utilización del compuesto. La evaluación macroscópica y difractográfica del contenido medular y del material que creció en las rocas de los clavos se hizo a los ocho, 30, 60, 90 y 120 días pos-cirugía. Resultados. Con cada fecha de evaluación la tendencia de la medula ósea en los tratados fue a regenerarse y la del compuesto a perder visibilidad, lo que se demostró con la difracción de rayos X, encontrándose tejido con cristalinidad compatible con el componente mineral del hueso. Conclusiones. El compuesto puede guiar la formación de hueso hasta el clavo intramedular sin afectar la regeneración de médula ósea.

    Full Text Available We describe seven cases of children (ages 2 to 14 years with myeloradiculopathy caused by infection with S. mansoni. None of them presented hepatosplenic involvement and one presented an intestinal picture. The myeloradicular and pseudotumoral forms were observed in four and three patients, respectively. Comparing the reports in the literature, we found that the pseudotumoral form is more similary frequent among children than in adults, while the myelitic and myeloradicular forms are the most frequent and distributed across all age groups. Diagnosis is based on clinical and epidemiological findings in association with laboratory tests. The diagnosis was confirmed by the presence of S. mansoni eggs in feces (5 cases and / or the positivity in specific immunological tests (5 cases associated with a cerebrospinal fluid inflammatory pattern with presence of eosinophils (between 1 and 24%. Magnetic resonance image, although it does not enable an etiological diagnosis, helped to confirm the form and spinal cord level of the lesion.Relatamos sete crianças com mielorradiculopatia devida a infecção pelo S. mansoni, com idade entre 2 e 14 anos.

Revendo os achados da literatura, encontramos que a forma pseudotumoral é mais frequente nas crianças que nos adultos, apesar das formas mielíticas e mielorradiculares serem ainda as mais frequentes em todas as idades. O diagnóstico baseou-se nos achados clínicos e epidemiológicos, associados aos laboratoriais. A presença de ovos de S. mansoni nas fezes (5 casos e/ou a positividade de testes imunológicos específicos no liquido cefalorraquidiano (5 casos, com padrão inflamatório e eosinofilorraquia (entre 1 e 24% confirmou o diagnóstico.

    Full Text Available O trauma raquemedular é uma das lesões traumáticas com maior impacto sobre a sociedade, o que faz com que enormes investimentos sejam feitos em estudos visando sua cura. Para a realização de pesquisas sobre lesão medular, é necessário que se utilize um modelo reprodutível desta lesão. A padronização de um sistema de lesão medular experimental provoca alterações não só no sistema nervoso mas também sistêmicas. OBJETIVO: O presente estudo visa avaliar as alterações vesicais na fase aguda da lesão medular experimental. MÉTODOS Foram utilizados 34 ratos Wistar machos divididos em grupo controle (A e grupo experimento (B. Enquanto os animais do grupo B foram submetidos à laminectomia no nível T9-T10 seguida de lesão medular, os do grupo A (n=4 foram submetidos somente à laminectomia. Os animais do grupo B foram dividos em 6 grupos distintos (n=5 e foram submetidos à eutanásia após 2, 4, 8, 24, 48 horas e 4 dias. RESULTADOS: Verificou-se redução da camada urotelial em todos animais do grupo B, presença de células inflamatórias e congestão vascular principalmente após 8 horas, entre outros achados. CONCLUSÃO: As alterações histológicas na fase aguda da lesão medular evidenciaram importante comprometimento vesical, sendo essa uma alteração sistêmica de relevância em lesados medulares.Spinal cord trauma is one of the lesions with highest socioeconomical impact.

Após realização de laminectomia dorsal de T13, utilizou-se peso compressivo de 50,5g (25 animais - grupo I ou 70,5g (30 animais - grupo II, durante cinco minutos, comprimindo a medula espinhal. Os animais foram assistidos durante oito dias, por meio de testes comportamentais para avaliar a sensibilidade dolorosa, a capacidade motora, o posicionamento tátil e proprioceptivo e a capacidade de manter-se em plano inclinado. No grupo I, observaram-se déficits neurológicos moderados e transitórios, que variaram entre os animais. No grupo II, foi possível obter um trauma padronizado, caracterizado por paraplegia bilateral e simétrica dos membros posteriores, perda de propriocepção e da sensibilidade dolorosa de todos os animais. A utilização do aparelho estereotáxico desenvolvido permite reproduzir clinicamente trauma medular padronizado em ratos, de maneira simples, econômica e satisfatória, o que poderá proporcionar avanços nas investigações terapêuticas, abrangendo doenças neurodegenerativas, como é o caso do trauma medular agudo.Fifty-five male rats (Rattus novergicus, Wistar variety, were used with the purpose of suggesting an experimental model of spinal cord trauma performed by using a modified stereotaxic equipment capable to reproduce clinically (standardized pattern spinal cord injury.

    Full Text Available O uso da irrigação por capilaridade na produção de mudas em viveiros pode trazer vantagens ao uso de água e sua utilização adequada requer o conhecimento da capacidade de ascensão de água no meio de crescimento das raízes, atributo pouco estudado. Para avaliar esta condição fundamental, este trabalho tem como objetivo avaliar a ascensão de água em substratos comerciais de coco e pinus, em dois padrões de tamanho de partículas e em duas condições de umidade, para indicar aquele que possua as melhores características físicas para aplicação na irrigação por capilaridade. Utilizou-se o método de ascensão capilar, com colunas desmontáveis de anéis preenchidas com substratos, avaliando-se os seguintes tempos de contato do fundo da coluna com a lâmina de água: 0,25, 0,5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 e 24 horas, com 10 repetições por tempo testado. Pelos resultados, observou-se que a maior ascensão capilar acumulada em 24 horas de ensaio foi obtida para os substratos de textura fina de coco e de pinus. Além disso, a hidrofobia do substrato de coco seco recomenda que as irrigações nesse material devem ter frequências maiores que substratos de pinus, evitando seu secamento. O substrato de pinus, por não apresentar esse comportamento, deve ter turnos de rega mais espaçados, principalmente sob textura fina. Devido à sua maior retenção de água e capacidade de elevação de água quando umedecido, o substrato fino de coco é mais adequado à irrigação por capilaridade em recipientes como tubetes.The capillary irrigation in nursery production could give advantages in water use and its correct application demands knowledge about capillary water rise through root growth media, an attribute poorly studied.

    Full Text Available Produtos cosméticos para a higiene capilar promovem a remoção de gordura, suor, poeira, células mortas, micro-organismos e resíduos de outros cosméticos do couro cabeludo e do cabelo. Com esta finalidade, foi proposto o desenvolvimento e avaliação da estabilidade de formulações contendo tensoativos primários não sulfatados associados separadamente com diferentes agentes de consistência (Myrj® 6000, NovethixTM L-10 e Carbopol® Ultrez 20. Dentre os seis tensoativos “não sulfatados” avaliados, dois foram selecionados (Plantapon® LGC Sorb e Sensactive® C30 conforme critérios de avaliação da viscosidade e da formação de espuma. Seis formulações foram desenvolvidas, com combinações distintas entre os tensoativos selecionados e os diferentes agentes de consistência (sem a adição intencional de cloreto de sódio, com posterior estudo de estabilidade em variadas condições de armazenamento. Durante os estudos de estabilidade acelerada, as formulações contendo os agentes de consistência Myrj® 6000 ou NovethixTM L-10 não apresentaram estabilidade adequada. Ao final do estudo de estabilidade normal, as formulações remanescentes, contendo Carbopol® Ultrez 20, mantiveram as características organolépticas e desempenho adequado quanto à viscosidade, comprovando a eficiência deste polímero, mesmo em formulações com grandes quantidades de tensoativos “não sulfatados” e eletrólitos.

    Full Text Available A lesão medular (LM é uma das formas mais graves dentro das síndromes incapacitantes. O paciente com LM sobrecarrega excessivamente os membros superiores, especialmente os ombros, utilizando-os mais freqüentemente e em maior variabilidade de atividades que uma pessoa sem LM. Além disso, a busca da melhoria da qualidade de vida nos últimos anos, levou um número crescente de portadores de LM a procurar a prática de atividade física. Muitos pacientes com LM utilizam cadeira de rodas para locomoção funcional e realização de esportes. Porém, esta demanda funcional na articulação do ombro pode levar a presença de quadro álgico importante interferindo nas atividades de vida diária desses pacientes. Com os adventos da tecnologia e cuidados com a saúde, a expectativa de vida dos pacientes com LM tem aumentado. Desde então, questões relacionadas à qualidade de vida e doenças associadas com o envelhecimento são de grande importância para essa população. Este estudo busca um melhor entendimento da dor no ombro em pacientes com LM através de revisão da literatura.The spinal cord injury (SCI is one of the most severe forms of disabling syndromes. Patients with SCI usually apply an excessive overload on the upper limbs, especially the shoulders, using them more frequently and in a greater range of activities when compared to healthy subjects. Moreover, the search for the improvement of the quality of life in the last years has led an increasingly number of SCI patients to practice physical activities. Many SCI patients use wheelchairs for functional locomotion and sports practice. However, this functional demand on shoulder's joint may lead to a painful picture, interfering on these patient's daily activities. With the improvements on technology and healthcare life expectancy for SCI patients has been increased. Since then, issues regarding quality of life and age-related diseases are very important for this population. The

    Full Text Available Cytoplasmic inclusion bodies in adrenal medullary chromaffin cells have been described in various species including humans. These inclusions are believed to be related to certain infectious, toxic and neurodegenerative diseases. No reports concerning such adrenal inclusions have been described in bovines. Adrenal glands from twenty bovines were evaluated in a retrospective study. Seven of these exhibited inclusions - three cases of rabies, two cases of chronic suppurative bronchopneumonia, one case of chronic suppurative peritonitis, and one case of gangrenous mastitis. The inclusions were present in higher numbers especially in cases of rabies and also in one case of chronic suppurative bronchopneumonia. The inclusions were intracytoplasmic, eosinophilic, rounded, single or multiple, of various sizes, strongly stained by PAS and were present in higher numbers in the external layer of the adrenal medulla. The inclusions were negative when subjected to immunohistochemistry for detection of viral antigens in the cases of rabies. Although inclusion bodies were present in adrenal glands devoid of other histological alterations, they were more abundant in cases in which the adrenal gland had other alterations. The correlation between certain diseases and the development of inclusion bodies is not known, which highlights the importance of further studies on these inclusions in adrenal glands of bovines.

Para el estudio se muestrearon 6 caballos chilenos adultos (5-10 años, durante el período de descanso previo al inicio de la temporada de rodeo. Biopsias musculares fueron extraídas desde una profundidad estándar de 6 cm. Mediante la técnica de la miosina ATPasa miofibrilar se determinó la distribución de los distintos tipos de fibras musculares, las que según sus patrones de reacción fueron clasificadas en los tipos I, IIA y IIB. Además, la densidad capilar se determinó mediante la técnica de alfa amilasa PAS. Los resultados muestran una mayor proporción de fibras de contracción rápida tipo II, dentro de ellas las tipo IIB son más frecuentes (42.5% que las tipo IIA (39.0%. Esta distribución en la composición fibrilar significaría que el músculo G. medius del caballo chileno está mejor adaptado para realizar trabajo de velocidad y resistencia. La mayor frecuencia de fibras tipo IIB y una baja densidad capilar (253 ± 26 capilares/mm2 permiten pensar que estas características están asociadas a una falta de aptitud física producto de un reposo prolongadoA study to analyze fibre composition and capillary supply of the Gluteus medius muscle of the Chilean criollo horse under resting conditions was carried out.

    2006-10-01

    Full Text Available Introducción: En la ultima década la resonancia magnética (RM ha sido introducida como una herramienta rutinaria de diagnóstico clínico por imagen, siendo considerada como una prueba no invasiva y segura. Sin embargo se ha contraindicado su utilización en pacientes que poseen dispositivos electrónicos implantados, entre ellos neurostimuladores medulares y corticales. A diferencia del avance de la tecnología en neuroesti-mulación y su aplicación clínica, hay pocos estudios que avalen la seguridad de la RM en pacientes con neuroestimuladores implantados. Nuestra hipótesis es que la RM es un método diagnóstico seguro en los pacientes con neuroestimuladores implantados. Nuestro trabajo tiene como finalidad aportar más pruebas objetivas acerca de esta cuestión. Material y Métodos: Serie de 8 pacientes con neuroestimuladores implantados (ITRELL III modelo 7425, Medtronic sometidos a 9 estudios de RM (1,5 T General Electric Sigma Excite durante el 2005, siguiendo el protocolo de Liem van Dongen en los que se vigiló la aparición de efectos adversos relacionados, durante e inmediatamente después del estudio de imagen. Resultados: Durante los estudios de RM no se produjeron incidencias, ni efectos adversos, en ninguno de los casos, tanto en los que el estudio se realizó en zonas alejadas del implante del neuroestimulador, como en los que se realizó en la misma zona anatómica. Una vez concluido el estudio de RM no se objetivó ninguna referencia de los pacientes a sensaciones relacionadas con el calentamiento o interacción electromagnética de la RM con su neuroestimulador. Tampoco se produjo ningún fallo en la reprogramación de los neuroestimuladores, excepto en un caso en el que fue imposible reprogramar el neuroestimulador una vez concluido el estudio de RM. Conclusiones: Todo parece indicar que en la mayoría de los casos la RM puede ser aplicada de forma segura en pacientes con sistemas de neruroestimulación implantados

Após o trauma, os animais foram divididos em cinco grupos de cinco. O grupo A (controle recebeu placebo oito horas após o trauma; os grupos B, C, D e E receberam prednisona oito, 24, 48 e 120 horas após o trauma, respectivamente. A prednisona foi administrada na dose inicial de 2mg/kg, durante cinco dias, com diminuição progressiva até o 26º dia. Os animais foram avaliados conforme a capacidade motora, posicionamento proprioceptivo, reflexo de localização, plano inclinado e sensibilidade dolorosa. Após 33 dias da cirurgia, foram sacrificados para avaliação histológica das medulas espinhais. Observaram-se degeneração das raízes nervosas, necrose medular, inflamação local e reação glial, sem diferenças entre os grupos. Não houve correlação entre os testes neurológicos. A utilização da prednisona na lesão medular aguda não teve efeito diferenciado com o tempo e não foi prejudicial na recuperação neurológica, mesmo quando utilizada tardiamente.Twent-five rats (Rattus novergicus were submitted to an experimental spinal cord injury by using a 50.5g stereotaxic equipament to apply pressure on the duramater during five minutes.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Os pacientes lesado-medulares passam a se submeter a uma nova conformação de forças sobre as articulações. O quadril é uma das mais afetadas, por utilizarem a cadeira de rodas como meio de locomoção. Alterações osteoarticulares, como ossificação heterotópica, podem ser encontradas nesses pacientes, sendo evidenciadas por estudos radiográficos. Este estudo visa identificar a incidência das alterações radiográficas em quadris de paciente lesados medulares. MÉTODOS: Foram avaliados 15 pacientes (30 quadris acompanhados no Laboratório de Reabilitação Biomecânica do Aparelho Locomotor do HC-Unicamp, analisando-se radiografias da bacia em posições antero-posterior e lowenstein. RESULTADOS: Dos quadris avaliados, apenas sete (23% não possuíam alguma evidência de dano à superfície articular. A prevalência de ossificação heterotópica encontrada (16,6% aproximou-se a da literatura. CONCLUSÃO: Devido à prevalência de alterações articulares encontradas, justifica-se o acompanhamento radiográfico dos quadris destes pacientes. Nível de Evidência II.

Material şi metode. Studiul a inclus 15 pacienţi cu leziuni traumatice acute medulare: opt pacienţi cu leziuni medulare complete şi şapte pacienţi cu leziuni medulare incomplete. Gravitatea leziunilor medulare a fost apreciată folosind scala ASIA (American Spinal Injury Association scale şi la toti pacientii s-a aplicat tratamentul chirurgical în primele 24 de ore (decompresiune medulară şi stabilizare vertebrală. S-a facut determinarea zilnică a pNF-H din LCR folosind testul ELISA specific şi am corelat aceste valori cu evoluţia clinică. Rezultate. Subunitatea pNF-H a fost evidenţiată în LCR la toţi pacienţii cu traumatisme acute vertebro-medulare şi valorile au fost diferite în cazurile leziunilor medulare complete faţa de leziunile incomplete. Nivelul pNF-H din LCR a fost de zece până la o sută de ori mai mare în leziunile medulare complete fata de cazurile cu leziuni incomplete, unde nivelul acestui biomarker a fost aproape normal. Pacienţii cu o evoluţie neurologică favorabilă după tratament au avut un model specific al valorilor zilnice de pNF-H: o creştere bruscă până la o valoare maximă apoi o scădere progresivă până la normal. Valorile maxime au fost diferite în fiecare caz, de 10 ori până la 170 de ori mai mari faţă de normal. Concluzii. Forma fosforilată a subunităţii neurofilamentelor cu greutate moleculară mare pNF-H din lichidul cefalorahidian poate fi un biomarker specific pentru leziunile acute traumatice ale măduvei spinării corelat cu severitatea leziunilor medulare. pNF-H pare a fi un biomarker predictiv deoarece modelul evolutiv al valorilor sale arată reducerea sau blocarea leziunilor

    Full Text Available Spinal extradural meningeal cysts are typically formed by a thin fibrotic membranous capsule, macroscopically similar that of an arachnoid membrane, filled by cerebro spinal fluid and related to a nerve root or to the posterior midline. Ventral location is extremely rare and when it occurs they usually cause spinal cord herniation through the ventral dural gap. A 61 year-old man who began with a two years long history of insidious tetraparesis, spasticity and hyperreflexia in lower extremities, and flaccid atrophy of upper limbs, without sensory manifestations, is presented. Investigation through magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated an extensive spinal ventral extradural cystic collection from C6 to T11. The lesion was approached through a laminectomy and a cyst-peritoneal shunt was introduced. The cyst reduced in size significantly and the patient is asymptomatic over a 48 months follow-up. This is the first reported case of a spontaneous ventral extradural spinal meningeal cyst causing cord compression. Cyst-peritoneal shunt was effective in the treatment of the case and it should be considered in cases in which complete resection of the cyst is made more difficult or risky by the need of more aggressive surgical maneuvers.Cistos meníngeos extradurais espinhais são formados tipicamente por estreita cápsula membranosa fibrótica, macroscopicamente semelhante a uma membrana de aracnóide, repleta de líquor e relacionada com uma raiz nervosa ou com a linha média posterior. Eles são extremamente raros em posição anterior e, quando ocorrem, habitualmente causam herniação da medula espinhal pela falha dural ventral. O caso de um homem de 61 anos de idade que iniciou com tetraparesia, espasticidade e hiperreflexia em membros inferiores, e flacidez com hipotrofia nos membros superiores, sem manifestação sensitiva, é apresentado. A investigação com ressonância magnética demonstrou extensa coleção cística extradural ventral

Durante la última década, se ha extendido la utilización de la EEM en la cardiopatía isquémica de carácter intratable (angina de pecho refractaria a tratamientos, síndrome "X",... y la patología vascular periférica, objeto de esta revisión. Esta técnica se presenta como una de las principales indicaciones con altos niveles de efectividad (80%, tanto en el aspecto clínico por el alivio sintomático que produce, como en los beneficios isquémicos fisiopatológicos que induce la neuroestimulación.The Neuromodulation technologies are a not destructive and reversible approach in the treatment of the pain. They are used as a strategy for the control of untreatable pain according to the directives of the OMS and as an alternative of other invasive minor or neuroablatives therapies that have been not effective or that are not indicated. Between them the clinical use of spinal cord stimulation (SCS has demonstrated its usefulness and efficiency in the treatment of different syndromes of chronic pain. Cook´s and cols. in 1

    Full Text Available A aplasia de medula é uma das mais raras (Aplastic anemia (AA is one of the rarest (<1% and most serious complications of liver transplantation for fulminant non-A, non-B and non-C hepatitis. It was first described in 1987 by Stock; the mechanism involved is an immunologically mediated condition secondary to an unknown viral infection. The disease is associated with a dismal prognosis. Spontaneous recovery from acquired AA is very rare however some patients (50-70% recover after immunosuppressive therapy, such as Cyclosporin A (CsA and Antithymocyte globulin (ATG, even after liver transplantation. Another treatment option is bone marrow transplantation. We report on a child who developed AA following liver transplantation for fulminant viral hepatitis that was treated with intensive immunosuppression including CsA and ATG and achieved complete recovery.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do trabalho foi identificar e quantificar o formaldeído presente em formulações comerciais de alisamento capilar, sendo abordada a aplicação da cosmetovigilância a partir de ensaios organolépticos/físico-químicos e análise dos rótulos. Oito formulações comerciais de marcas distintas foram submetidas à análise por espectrofotometria, baseado na reação entre formaldeído e ácido cromotrópico na presença de sulfato de magnésio, produzindo um complexo que permite identificar e quantificar a presença da substância ativa. As amostras A1, A3, A5 e A8 apresentaram uma concentração de formaldeído variando de 1,5 a 3,83% (p/v, o que corresponde a concentrações 7,5; 16,45; 7,9 e 19,15 vezes acima do permitido pela ANVISA, apresentando odor forte característico dessa substância ativa. Destas amostras, A3 e A5 não indicaram a presença de formaldeído no rótulo, além de ignorarem as informações de advertência e restrições de uso. Foi verificado ainda, a ausência do número de registro concedido pela ANVISA para a amostra A5, o que pode ser indício de produto clandestino. Quanto às características organolépticas e físico-químicas somente a amostra A2 apresentou resultados de viscosidade e centrifugação diferentes das demais. Diante desses resultados, conclui-se que 50% dos produtos analisados foram reprovados devido à presença de formaldeído fora da concentração permitida, ficando evidente a importância da implantação do sistema de cosmetovigilância para garantir a qualidade final dos produtos cosméticos, tendo em vista principalmente, a segurança e eficácia desses produtos.Palavras-chaves: Alisamento capilar.

    Full Text Available É comum o clínico veterinário submeter animais à quimioterapia para controle de neoplasias e observar depressão medular, com presença de anemia, leucopenia e trombocitopenia como efeitos colaterais. Nesses casos, podem-se adotar duas condutas: supressão da quimioterapia e/ou utilização de estimulantes de medula óssea. Dentre os medicamentos estimulantes mais utilizados, podemos citar o decanoato de nandrolona (Deca-durabolin®, cuja eficácia para os animais domésticos é pouco estudada, com poucos relatos na literatura nacional e internacional. Este trabalho visou estudar a ação do decanoato de nandrolona (DN, na dose de 1,5mg/kg, por via intramuscular, como estimulante de medula óssea em ratos (Rattus rattus com supressão medular induzida pelo sulfato de vincristina (Oncovin® nas doses de 4 e 8mg/m², por via intraperitoneal. Foram realizados hemograma, contagem de plaquetas e determinação da proteína total plasmática. Os resultados obtidos mostram que sua eficácia na estimulação da medula óssea depende do grau de depressão medular e da dose administrada.

    Full Text Available Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP is a peripheral nerve disorder probably due to an immunological disturb. It evolves either in a steadily progressive or in a relapsing and fluctuating course. Weakness is mainly in the lower limbs proximally and distally. The electromyography is demyelinating. The cerebral spinal fluid protein is most of times elevated. Sometimes enlarged nerves are found. There are few cases described with spinal cord compression due to hypertrophic spinal nerve roots. Two patients (females, 66 and 67 years old with diagnosis of a long standing CIDP are described. In the first one, the evolution was characterized by remission and relapsing course. The second patient had a chronic and progressive course. These patients presented after a long evolution a cervical spinal cord compression syndrome due to hypertrophic cervical roots. Neurologists must be aware of the possibility of development of spinal cord compression by enlarged spinal roots in patients with a long standing CIDP.A polirradiculoneuropatia desmielinizante inflamatória crônica (PDIC é uma afecção dos nervos periféricos de natureza autoimune, com evolução por surtos de exacerbação e remissão ou de evolver progressivo. O acometimento motor é predominante, com fraqueza proximal e distal nos membros inferiores. A eletroneuromiografia é do tipo desmielinizante com bloqueio de condução nervosa em dois ou mais nervos. Há aumento de proteínas do líquor. Com a evolução da doença pode haver espessamento dos nervos distal e/ou proximalmente. Excepcionalmente ocorre compressão da medula espinhal em qualquer segmento por raízes próximas hipertrofiadas. Foram estudadas duas mulheres de 66 e 67 anos respectivamente com quadro de PDIC de longa evolução. A primeira tinha evolução por surtos e na segunda o evolver era progressivo. Nos dois casos o espessamento proximal dos nervos provocou síndrome de compressão medular alta

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: O uso de anticoagulantes orais (ACO é comum na prática cardiológica, tendo como principais indicações a fibrilação atrial e próteses valvares. Os pacientes em uso de ACO necessitam de controle freqüente do tempo de protrombina (TP. Novos sistemas portáteis de monitorização, para medida do tempo de protrombina, sem necessidade da coleta de sangue por venopunção, facilitam a rotina desses pacientes. OBJETIVO: Comparar as medidas do TP realizadas pelo sistema Coaguchek S®, em sangue capilar, com o método padrão em sangue venoso. MÉTODOS: Cento e vinte e sete pacientes em acompanhamento no ambulatório de anticoagulação do Instituto de Cardiologia foram submetidos ao método convencional e coleta de sangue capilar da polpa digital para medida com o sistema Coaguchek S®. RESULTADOS: A idade foi de 58±14 anos, 90% eram brancos. As indicações de ACO foram fibrilação atrial 49,6% e próteses valvares 37,0%. O coeficiente de correlação r s foi 0,90 (p 3,5 foi de Kappa 73,5%. O sistema Coaguchek S® superestimou o INR em 0,15±0,85 unidades. Valores acima de 3,5 unidades de INR mostram discrepância importante entre as duas técnicas. CONCLUSÕES: O sistema Coaguchek S® mostrou boa correlação e bom grau de concordância quando comparado com o controle, com resultados menores que 4. Porém, valores de INR acima de 3,5 ainda necessitam de confirmação com o método padrão.BACKGROUND: Oral anticoagulants (OAC are widely used in cardiology and are mainly indicated in cases of atrial fibrillation and prosthetic heart valves.

En los mayores de 3 años (42%) tenía problemas neurológicos. Solo el 24% preocupados por la tumoración. El objetivo de la cirugía es desanclar la médula y no remover la totalidad del lipoma. El lipoma de filum es el que es mas simple para operar. Aún cuando la escuela francesa propone operar solamente cuando hay síntomas favorezco cirugía preventiva. Favorezco una segunda cirugía si hay signos de anclaje postoperatorio, aún cuando observamos empeoramiento postoperatorio motor en 2.5% de los operados y urológico a largo plazo en 6% de los operados.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the levels of plasma zinc, hair zinc, growth and food consumption in children aged 6 to 24 months in a rural area of Diamantina (MG, Brazil. METHODS: Plasma and hair zinc concentrations were analyzed using flame atomic absorption spectrometry and neutron activation analysis, respectively. Weight-for-age, weight-for-height and height-for-age, expressed as Z-scores, were measured according to the World Health Organization reference curves. Dietary zinc intake was determined by a 3-day dietary recall filled out by the mother or guardian. RESULTS: Zinc deficiency was found in 11.2% and 16.8% of the children according to plasma zinc e hair zinc levels, respectively. Mean plasma zinc and hair zinc for children 11 (127 months of age were 15.4 (SD=4.2 µmol L-1 and 139.5 (SD=72.1 µg g-1 and 16.0 (SD=4.5 µmol L-1 and 134.3 (SD=110.3 µg g-1, respectively. Anthropometric measurements showed that 8.0%, 6.8% and 3.4% of the children were underweight, stunted and wasted, respectively. The mean dietary intake of zinc was 3.2 (SD=2.3 mg/day. One-third of the children did not eat enough foods that contain zinc. There were no correlations among plasma zinc level, hair zinc level, anthropometric parameters and zinc intake. CONCLUION: The results demonstrate that zinc deficiency is a problem in the studied population, not just in malnourished children. Nutritional care should be provided for this population in order to improve their consumption of high-zinc foods and monitor zinc deficiency.OBJETIVO: Investigar níveis plasmáticos de zinco, concentração de zinco capilar, crescimento físico, e consumo de zinco em crianças de 6 a 24 meses da região de Diamantina (MG, Brasil.

    Full Text Available La técnica de electroforesis capilar asociada con el programa computacional SQUAD ha sido empleada para el estudio de la interacción entre metales pesados (Cu2+, Pb2+, Hg2+, Co2+, Cd2+ y un ácido húmico. Dicha interacción, provoca el desplazamiento en el tiempo de migración de los metales en función de la concentración del ácido. De esta información es posible obtener las movilidades electroforéticas efectivas y alimentarlas al programa SQUAD para calcular las constantes de equilibrio considerando una estequiometría 1:1. La afinidad del ácido húmico hacia los metales decrece en el siguiente orden: Cu2+>Pb2+>Hg2+>Co2+>Cd2+. Las respectivas constantes de equilibrio son: (log b1: 3.48±0.33, 3.62±0.24, 3.18±0.19, 2.96±0.20 y 2.58±0.33. Esta tendencia coincide con la teoría ABDB de Pearson y con otros datos de la literatura.The capillary electrophoresis technique associated with the SQUAD computer program has been used to study the interaction between humic acid and heavy metals (Cu2+, Pb2+, Hg2+, Co2+, Cd2+. Such interaction causes a shift in the migration time of metals depending on the concentration of humic acid. From this information the effective electrophoretic mobility was determined and then introduced to the SQUAD program to calculate the equilibrium constants considering a 1:1 stoichiometry. The affinity of humic acid to the metals decreases in the following order: Cu2+>Pb2+>Hg2+>Co2+>Cd2+. The respective equilibrium constants (log b1 are: 3.48±0.33, 3.62±0.24, 3.18±0.19, 2.96±0.20 and 2.58±0.33.

    The terms medullary cystic disease, juvenile nephronophthisis or medullary cystic disease complex refer to a group of similar diseases in which the basic pathological abnormality is progressive renal tubular atrophy with secondary glomerular sclerosis and medullary cystic formation. Medullary cystic disease is an important cause of renal failure in adolescent patients. Imaging methods play a primary role in the diagnosis of these diseases. Cysts are characteristically seen in the renal medulla and cortico medullary junction whereas kidneys may be of normal to small size. In this article we present the ultrasonography and computed tomography findings of a female adolescent patient with characteristic clinical picture of medullary cystic disease. (author)

    Full Text Available Decaffeinated coffee accounts for 10 percent of coffee sales in the world; it is preferred by consumers that do not wish or are sensitive to caffeine effects. This article presents an analytical comparison of capillary electrophoresis (CE and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC methods for residual caffeine quantification in decaffeinated coffee in terms of validation parameters, costs, analysis time, composition and treatment of the residues generated, and caffeine quantification in 20 commercial samples. Both methods showed suitable validation parameters. Caffeine content did not differ statistically in the two different methods of analysis. The main advantage of the high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC method was the 42-fold lower detection limit. Nevertheless, the capillary electrophoresis (CE detection limit was 115-fold lower than the allowable limit by the Brazilian law. The capillary electrophoresis (CE analyses were 30% faster, the reagent costs were 76.5-fold, and the volume of the residues generated was 33-fold lower. Therefore, the capillary electrophoresis (CE method proved to be a valuable analytical tool for this type of analysis.O comércio de café descafeinado constitui 10% das vendas mundiais de café, sendo preferido pelos consumidores que não desejam ou são sensíveis aos efeitos da cafeína.

La oferta de actividad física adaptada es escasa por falta de información específica sobre la forma de adecuarlo y dosificarlo a las personas que presentan estos desórdenes. Con el fin de comparar el efecto del ejercicio de pedaleo de brazos sobre la respuesta fisiológica y la percepción del esfuerzo, en 8 personas con lesión medular, 4 con parálisis cerebral y 4 con ataxia de Friedreich, se analizó su respuesta fisiológica, así como su percepción subjetiva al esfuerzo, frente a un grupo Control (16 participantes. Para ello realizó un ejercicio normalizado de pedaleo de brazos en un ergómetro y se midieron frecuencia cardíaca, frecuencia respiratoria, volumen corriente, volumen espirado, consumo de Oxígeno relativo, pulso de Oxígeno y percepción del esfuerzo y se realizó un ANOVA con estas variables. Para el grupo con lesión medular, el estrés y gasto energético resultaron los más bajos. El grupo con parálisis cerebral mostró los niveles de estrés más altos, además percibiéndolo como una carga moderada. El grupo con ataxia de Friedreich, mostró respuestas cardiorrespiratorias altas intermedias.

MÉTODOS: noventa e três estudos foram identificados no Pubmed, sendo selecionados 11 artigos para análise, 9 experimentais e 2 clínicos, publicados entre 1963 e 2009. Os estudos experimentais apresentaram diferentes formas de tratamento, sendo o desfecho final mensurado pelas diferentes avaliações: funcional, histológica, bioquímica e eletrofisiológica. RESULTADOS: na maioria dos estudos foi observada uma recuperação da função locomotora, histológica e/ou bioquímica. Entretanto, os resultados dos estudos clínicos se mostraram controversos, pelo fato de as amostras serem heterogêneas e a administração da oxigenioterapia hiperbárica ser diferente quanto à dose e o tempo de aplicação. CONCLUSÃO: considerando os resultados desta revisão, será necessária a realização de mais estudos para se ter uma definição sobre a eficácia da oxigenioterapia hiperbárica na lesão medular aguda.

Após a validação analítica foi observado que o método CLAE apresentou melhores precisão intra e interensaio, porcentagem de recuperação e sensibilidade. Amostras de urina de trabalhadores expostos aos dois solventes em fábrica de tintas-látex foram analisadas pelos dois métodos validados e os resultados avaliados estatisticamente. Não se encontrou diferença significativa entre os valores de AH superiores a 1,0 g/g de creatinina, quando determinados pelos dois métodos cromatográficos. Esta similaridade não foi repetida quando os níveis de AH eram inferiores a 1,0 g/g de creatinina. Os valores de AMH nas amostras analisadas estavam, na maioria das vezes, abaixo do limite de deteção, razão pela qual não foi realizada a comparação estatística entre os mesmos.High performance liquid chromatography and capillary gas chromatography were compared for simultaneous measurement of hyppuric and methyl hyppuric acids in urine of workers co-exposed to toluene and xilene. Quantitative advantages offered by HPLC over capillary GC method are observed: better average recovery, wider dynamic interval in calibration curve and lower detection and quantification limits mainly when MHA measurement was performed. No significant difference was found between the values of HA higher than 1.0 g/g creatinine measured by the two chromatographic procedures. Regarding to MHA concentration the methods gave similar results and there was no significant difference between the values.

    Full Text Available El edema pulmonar postobstructivo (EPPO es una complicación postoperatoria cuyo manejo adecuado depende de un diagnóstico etiológico correcto. El EPPO se clasifica en dos tipos. El tipo I es secundario a la obstrucción aguda de la vía aérea superior. Por su parte, el tipo II ocurre luego de corregir quirúrgicamente una obstrucción crónica de la vía aérea. Fisiopatológicamente, el mecanismo que explica el cuadro es una disminución marcada de la presión intersticial en el nivel pericapilar pulmonar resultante de la inspiración forzada. Lo anterior produce fuga capilar y el consecuente edema de pulmón. El manejo de este cuadro requiere de soporte respiratorio que incluye ventilación mecánica e incluso presión positiva al final de la espiración (PEEP. El pronóstico es muy bueno si el diagnóstico es correcto y oportuno. Se reportan 3 casos que ilustran la entidad, su diagnóstico y manejo.Postobstructive pulmonary edema (POPPE is a postoperative complication and its approach depends on an appropriate diagnosis. POPPE can be classified in two types. POPPE type I is caused by acute upper airway obstruction , and type II is due to chronic obstruction. The mechanism of this entity is a marked decrease in pericapilar interstitical pressure in the lung that results in capillary leakage and edema. Its treatment requires mechanical ventilatory support including positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP. Its prognosis is very good if the diagnosis is done appropriately. We report three cases that illustrate its diagnosis and treatment.

    Full Text Available Capillary electrophoresis has become a well-established and routine-based separation technique. It is based on the differences between charged analyte mobility in aqueous or organic electrolytes. Its major limitation is the sensitivity due to small sample injection volumes and the narrow diameter of the capillaries, especially when UV detection is used. There are a number of ways to increase the concentration sensitivity. This report shows some on-line preconcentration strategies to perform it in free solution capillary electrophoresis that are based on manipulation of the analyte electrophoretic velocity during the sample introduction (stacking, field amplification and transient isotachophoresis.

    Full Text Available Two cases of intramedullary paracoccidioidomycosis are reported. Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic disease that involves the buccopharyngeal mucosa, lungs, lymph nodes and viscera and infrequently the central nervous system. Localization in the spinal cord is rare. Case 1: a 55-year old male admitted with crural pararesis, tactile/painful hypesthesia and sphincter disturbances of 15 days duration. Cutaneous-pulmonary blastomycosis was diagnosed 17 years ago. Myelotomography showed a blockade of T3-T4 (intramedullary lesion. The lesion surgically removed was a Paracoccidioides brasiliensis granuloma. Treatment with sulfadiazine was started after the surgery. Follow-up of 15 month showed an improvement of the clinical signs. Case 2: a 57-year old male was admitted elsewhere 6 months ago and, with a radiologic diagnosis of pulmonary paracoccidioidomycosis, was treated with amphotericin B. He progressively developed paresthesia and tactile/ pain anaesthesia on the left side, sphincter disturbances and tetraparesis with bilateral extensor plantar response and clonus of the feet. Myelotomography showed a blockade of C4-C6 (intramedullary lesion. The lesion was not found during surgical exploration and the patient deteriorated and died. Post-mortem examination revealed an intramedullary tumor above the site of the mielotomy (Paracoccidioides brasiliensis granuloma. The preoperative diagnosis of intramedullary paracoccidioidomycotic granulomas is difficult because the clinical and radiologic manifestations are uncharacteristic. Clinical suspicion was possible in our cases based on the history of previous systemic disease. Contrary to intracranial localizations, paracoccidioidomycotic granulomas causing progressive spinal cord compression may require early surgery because response to clinical treatment is slow and the reversibility of neurological deficits depends on the promptness of the decompression.São relatados dois casos de granuloma blastomic

    Since its inception in the 80's, capillary electrophoresis has matured into a well established technique for the separation and analysis of complex samples. One of its strongest aspects is the ability to handle materials from a diversity of chemical classes, ranging from few to millions of Daltons. This is only possible because several modes of electrophoresis can be performed in a single capillary format. In this work, relevant aspects of capillary zone electrophoresis in its three modes (fr...

    Full Text Available We report a case of spinal cord and root compression during percutaneous transpedicular polymethylmethacrylate vertebroplasty (PTPV for a compression fracture due to osteoporosis. Sudden onset of excruciating pain in the distribution of the right sixth intercostal nerve with hyperemia along its path, prompted the interruption of the procedure. Under narcotic sedation the patient was taken to the ICU and 10mg of dexamethasone was administered intravenously. Few hours later she developed paraplegia with preservation of light touch and a CT scan and MRI showed epidural extravasation of polymethylmethacrylate with spinal cord and root compression. Surgical decompression was followed by neurological recovery. The cement could be removed after been thinned out by high speed drill, with microsurgical technique, through a wide three level laminectomy of D5 to D7. Extravasation of cement is commonly encountered in PTPV and most of the time it is asymptomatic. Root compression may require surgical intervention if nonresponsive to steroid treatment. Cord compression is less often seen and requires emergency surgery. The cement does not adhere to the duramater and it can be removed easily.Relatamos um caso de compressão medular e radicular durante vertebroplastia percutanea transpedicular com polimetilmetacrilato (VPTP para tratamento de fratura com compressão por osteoporose.

    Full Text Available El edema agudo pulmonar por presión negativa es una complicación descrita desde 1977 tras la obstrucción de la vía aérea respiratoria, tanto en niños como en adultos. Aunque su etiopatogenia es multifactorial, destaca especialmente la excesiva presión intratorácica negativa causada por la inspiración forzada espontánea de un paciente con la glotis cerrada, que resulta en trasudación de líquido de los capilares pulmonares hacia el espacio alveolointersticial. El edema pulmonar resultante puede aparecer en pocos minutos tras la obstrucción de la vía aérea o de forma diferida al cabo de varias horas. Este cuadro clínico es potencialmente grave, pero habitualmente responde bien al tratamiento con oxigenoterapia, ventilación mecánica a presión positiva y diuréticos. Es importante el diagnóstico de sospecha para adecuar el tratamiento con presteza. Presentamos nuestra experiencia en 3 casos clínicos con edema agudo pulmonar por presión negativa.Negative pressure pulmonary edema is a complication, described since 1977, caused by upper airway obstruction in both children and adults. Although its aetiopathogeny is multifactorial, especially outstanding is excessive negative intrathoracic pressure caused by the forced spontaneous inspiration of a patient against a closed glottis, that causes high arteriole and capillary fluid pressures that favor transudation into the alveolar space The resulting pulmonary edema can appear a few minutes after the obstruction of the airway or in a deferred way after several hours. The clinical manifestations are potentially serious, but normally respond well to treatment with supplemental oxygen, positive pressure mechanical ventilation and diuretics. Diagnostic suspicion is important for acting promptly. We report three clinical cases with acute negative pressure pulmonary edema.

Alterações dentárias, gastrintestinais, geniturinárias, neurológicas, oftalmológicas, pulmonares e esqueléticas associadas têm sido relatadas. A falência medular é a principal causa de morte precoce e também é descrita predisposição para doenças malignas. Afeta principalmente homens, e reconhecem-se formas recessivas ligadas ao X, autossômicas dominantes e recessivas. Relata-se o caso de uma criança do sexo masculino, que apresentava a tríade clássica das lesões sem antecedentes familiares. Faz-se revisão da literatura com o objetivo de enfatizar a necessidade do acompanhamento médico multidisciplinar, de modo a permitir diagnóstico precoce das possíveis complicações.Dyskeratosis congenita is an inherited disease characterised by the triad of abnormal skin pigmentation, nail dystrophy and mucosal leukoplakia. Non-cutaneous abnormalities (dental, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, neurological, ophthalmic, pulmonary and skeletal have also been reported. Bone marrow failure is the main cause of early mortality, with an additional predisposition to malignancy. Men are more affected than women and X-linked recessive, autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive forms of the disease are recognised. We report a case of a male child who presented the classic triad of lesions, without familial cases. A review of the literature is also made, emphasizing the importance of a multidisciplinary approach, which is fundamental for an early diagnosis of the complications.

    Full Text Available The association between multiple (MS sclerosis and cerebral gliomas has been sporadically reported in the literature, causing a long lasting discussion if these lesions occur coincidentally or if MS plaques may actually lead to the genesis of gliomas. We report a 36 year old man who developed a rapid onset of right side weakness and loss of vision, having established a diagnosis of MS which was confirmed by CSF analysis and MRI. Nine years later he developed progressive tetraparesis, leading initially to suspicion of illness relapse and a demyelinating plaque in the spinal cord. However, after MRI investigation, a spinal cord tumor was diagnosed. The patient underwent cervical spine laminotomy for microsurgical removal of the spinal cord tumor diagnosed as ependimoma. The neurological deficits improved significantly.A associação entre esclerose múltipla (EM e gliomas cerebrais foi relatada esporadicamente na literatura, levando a longa discussão quanto à possibilidade das placas de esclerose estarem envolvidas na etiologia dos gliomas ou dessas lesões ocorrerem coincidentemente. Relatamos um paciente de 36 anos que desenvolveu hemiparesia direita rapidamente progressiva e perda visual, sendo estabelecido o diagnóstico de EM após análise do LCR e imagens de RM de encéfalo. Após nove anos o paciente desenvolveu tetraparesia lentamente progressiva, levantando inicialmente a hipótese de atividade da doença e aparecimento de placa de EM na medula espinal. Contudo, após investigação com RM de coluna, um tumor medular foi diagnosticado. Foi então submetido a laminectomia cervical para ressecção microcirúrgica do tumor, que foi diagnosticado como ependimoma. Os déficits neurológicos melhoraram significativamente.

    Introduccion. La enfermedad de Hirayama es una rara atrofia muscular juvenil que afecta a varones jovenes de origen asiatico, con atrofia muscular habitualmente de una de las extremidades superiores de progresion lenta con estabilizacion posterior. Se diagnostica por estudios electromiograficos/electroneurograficos con velocidad de conduccion (EMG/ENG-VC), y por resonancia magnetica (RM) medular en posicion neutra y en flexion cervical. El tratamiento se basa en el collarin cervical y cirugia (casos graves). Son muy pocos los estudios realizados en edad pediatrica. Caso clinico. Niña de 7 años, con atrofia de la musculatura de la mano y el antebrazo izquierdos, de dos años de evolucion. En EMG/ENG-VC presenta signos de denervacion cronica muy grave en los miotomos correspondientes a C7, C8 y D1 izquierdos, con conservacion de amplitudes de potenciales sensitivos evocados, congruentes con mielopatia cervical. La RM medular cervical en posicion neutra muestra un resultado normal en ese nivel. Posteriormente, por la sospecha dirigida de enfermedad de Hirayama, se realiza una nueva RM medular cervical en posicion neutra y en flexion, que muestra asimetria en el tamaño y morfologia de los cordones anteriores medulares en C6/C7, hiperseñal en el asta anterior homolateral e ingurgitacion del plexo venoso epidural posterior. Con el diagnostico de enfermedad de Hirayama se inicia tratamiento con collarin cervical para evitar la progresion del daño. Conclusiones. Se presenta un caso de enfermedad de Hirayama peculiar por las caracteristicas epidemiologicas, con la finalidad de difundir esta entidad en nuestro medio, cuyo diagnostico precoz permite un tratamiento eficaz, y se revisan los estudios realizados en edad pediatrica.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To investigate the correlation between facial sensory abnormalities and lesional topography in eight patients with lateral medullary infarcts (LMIs. METHOD: We reviewed eight sequential cases of LMIs admitted to the Neurology Division of Hospital das Clínicas/ São Paulo University between July, 2001 and August, 2002 except for one patient who had admitted in 1996 and was still followed in 2002. All patients were submitted to conventional brain MRI including axial T1-, T2-weighted and Fluid attenuated inversion-recovery (FLAIR sequences. MRIs were evaluated blindly to clinical features to determine extension of the infarct to presumed topographies of the ventral trigeminothalamic (VTT, lateral spinothalamic, spinal trigeminal tracts and spinal trigeminal nucleus. RESULTS: Sensory symptoms or signs were ipsilateral to the bulbar infarct in 3 patients, contralateral in 4 and bilateral in 1. In all of our cases with exclusive contralateral facial sensory symptoms, infarcts had medial extensions that included the VTT topography. In cases with exclusive ipsilateral facial sensory abnormalities, infarcts affected lateral and posterior bulbar portions, with slight or no medial extension. The only patient who presented bilateral facial symptoms had an infarct that covered both medial and lateral, in addition to the posterior region of the medulla. CONLUSION: Our results show a correlation between medial extension of LMIs and presence of contralateral facial sensory symptoms.OBJETIVO: Investigar a correlação entre alterações de sensibilidade na face e topografia lesional em oito pacientes com infartos bulbares laterais (IBLs. MÉTODO: Revisamos oito casos seqüenciais de IBLs admitidos na Divisão de Clínica Neurológica do Hospital das Clínicas da Universidade de São Paulo entre julho de 2001 e agosto de 2002, exceto por um caso que havia sido admitido em 1996 e estava sendo seguido em 2002. Todos os pacientes foram submetidos a ressonância magnética de encéfalo, incluindo seqüências pesadas em T1, T2 e FLAIR. As ressonâncias foram avaliadas por investigadores que não tiveram acesso às características clínicas. Avaliaram-se as extensões dos infartos em relação às topografias presumidas dos tratos trigeminotalâmico ventral (TTV, espinotalâmico lateral, trigeminal espinhal e do núcleo trigeminal espinhal. RESULTADOS: Sintomas ou sinais sensitivos foram ipsilaterais ao infarto bulbar em 3 pacientes, contralaterais em 4 e bilaterais em 1. Em todos os casos de comprometimento exclusivo da sensibilidade da hemiface contralateral, os infartos tiveram extensões mediais que incluíram a topografia do TTV. Em casos de anormalidades sensitivas faciais exclusivamente ipsilaterais, os infartos afetaram as porções lateral e posterior do bulbo, com pouca ou nenhuma extensão medial. O único paciente que apresentou sintomas faciais bilaterais tinha um infarto comprometendo as porções medial e lateral, além da região posterior do bulbo. CONCLUSÃO: Nossos resultados mostram uma correlação entre extensão medial de IBLs e presença de sintomas sensitivos faciais contralaterais.

São raros dentro do canal vertebral, e quando ocorrem são normalmente encontrados no compartimento intradural e extramedular da região lombossacra. Este relato apresenta o caso de um paciente de 26 anos, sexo masculino, com diagnóstico de fratura patológica da coluna torácica (T10, secundária a paraganglioma, causando lesão medular completa. Foi realizado tratamento cirúrgico no Hospital Geral do Estado da Bahia, que apresentou sangramento excessivo como complicação que indicou necessidade de embolização prévia. Com isso, os autores recomendam cautela ao avaliar e tratar esta rara lesão causadora de déficit neurológico, cujo planejamento cirúrgico deve ser criterioso a fim de evitar complicações catastróficas.Paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors that originate in specialized cells derived from neural crest cells, affecting the region of the carotid or jugular-tympanic artery. They are rare within the spinal canal and, when they occur, they are normally found in the extramedullary intradural compartment of the lumbosacral region. This report presents the case of a 26-year-old male patient who was diagnosed with pathological fracture of the thoracic spine (T10, secondary to paraganglioma, thus causing complete spinal cord injury. Surgical treatment was performed at the General Hospital of the State of Bahia and the complication of excessive bleeding occurred, which indicated that there had been a need for prior embolization. Because of this, the authors recommend caution when evaluating and treating this rare lesion that causes neurological deficits, with careful surgical planning in order to catastrophic complications.

El EPPO se clasifica en dos tipos. El tipo I es secundario a la obstrucción aguda de la vía aérea superior. Por su parte, el tipo II ocurre luego de corregir quirúrgicamente una obstrucción crónica de la vía aérea. Fisiopatológicamente, el mecanismo que explica el cuadro es una disminución marcada de la presión intersticial en el nivel pericapilar pulmonar resultante de la inspiración forzada. Lo anterior produce fuga capilar y el consecuente edema de pulmón. El manejo de este cuadro requiere de soporte respiratorio que incluye ventilación mecánica e incluso presión positiva al final de la espiración (PEEP.

    Full Text Available Registro de caso de paciente com infiltração leptomeníngea por metás-tase de mieloma múltiplo. A infiltração neoplásica ocorria nas leptomeninges da base do encéfalo e, em especial, nas do canal raqueano. O tecido tumoral formava manguito no espaço sub-aracnóideo que envolvia os segmentos cervical e torácico da medula espinhal. A partir dos segmentos lombares a medula se achava infiltrada pelo tumor; as raízes da cauda equina achavam-se também invadidas pelo tecido neoplásico. Não foi feito o diagnóstico em vida. O quadro clínico caracterizava-se por sinais de irritação meníngea e de sofrimento radículo-medular a partir dos segmentos lombares altos e o quadro liquórico, por reação inflamatória de tipo sub-agudo que determinava bloqueio do canal raqueano. Os autores chamam a atenção para a raridade da invasão leptomeníngea por mieloma múltiplo e para a dificuldade diagnostica do caso. Neste último sentido discutem os dados do quadro liquórico bem como salientam não ter sido possível completar o estudo histoquímico das células plasmocitárias.A case of a patient with multiple myelomatosis that presented diffuse leptomeningeal involvement by metastatic tissue is reported. The diagnosis was based upon necroscopic examination. The leptomeninges were infiltrated by neoplastic cells, the infiltration being more evident in the leptomeninges of the spinal canal. In this region the subarachnoid space was filled by neoplastic tissue that surrounded the spinal cord and cauda equina. The lumbal and sacral portions of spinal cord were invaded by tumor cells. Fever, congestion of left eye and signs of leptomeningeal irritation appeared at first and were followed by crural paraplegia about two months later. At this occasion a CSF examination showed changes proper to subacute inflammatory process and the manometric test of Stookey suggested the occurence of blockage in the spinal canal.

    Full Text Available When opening this conference, Professor Lizette Rabe quoted a statistic that struck a chord with me.
    In a six-month period between March and August 2000, the TransAfrica Forum in the USA had counted 89 stories on Africa published by The New York Times and Washington Post. Of the 89, 75 were negative, and 63 of the 89 were about conflict in Africa.
    What this statistic does is to portray in a small way the massive problem of how Africa is reported by the Western media, and which we, the African media, sometimes reflect and amplify in our reporting of the continent, by mimicking the Western media.
    No right-thinking African will ever deny that conflict does happen in Africa. However, the problem with the negative reporting is that it does not put the raw facts in context.
    Africa is a continent of 53 countries. It is the most variegated continent on Earth. Conflict is part and parcel of human nature, of life. In that context, Africans would not be human if conflict did not happen on this huge, variegated continent.

    Full Text Available This article describes the use of a conventional CRT monitor as a high voltage power supply for capillary electrophoresis. With this monitor, a 23-kV high voltage with a ripple of 1.32% was observed. The reproducibility of the applied high voltage was evaluated by measuring the standard deviations of peak area and migration time for five consecutive injections of a test mixture containing potassium, sodium, and lithium cations at 50 mmol L-1. The errors were about 2.5% and 0.6% for peak area and migration time, respectively. The maximum current tested was about 180 mA, which covers most capillary electrophoresis applications. This system has been successfully used for several months, maintaining the desired level of performance.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Caminha, Romulo de Athayde

    1999-03-01

    This work aims to present an isothermal, one-dimensional, compositional numerical simulator. A two-phase (oil and gas) multicomponent flow is treated implicitly in pressure, saturation and compositions. Flow terms consider gravitational effect, which allows the study of flow in inclined reservoir. The highly non-linear equations, which are necessary to equate the problem, require a numerical solution, which is obtained by the Newton-Raphson method. The one-dimensional treatment given to the problem yields a tridiagonal block Jacobian matrix. It is assumed that the two-phase flow is dominated by convection and that the dispersive effects are neglected. No mobile water is considered in the porous media, and the original gas-oil capillary pressure curve, obtained from the laboratory, is modified to include the variations of interfacial tensions. Instantaneous thermodynamic equilibrium is admitted and it is computed by means of the Peng and Robinson equation of state. The fluids densities are calculated with the equation of state. Gas and oil viscosities are computed using the Lohrenz method. The medium is considered incompressible, homogeneous and isotropic, chemically and physically inert to the fluids. (author)

    Full Text Available Neoplasms originating in the spinal canal are uncommon in small animal veterinary clinic, but when present can cause significant neurological signs. Anatomically, these neoplasms can be classified as extradural, intradural-extramedullary and medullary. Extradural neoplasms are located outside the dura mater, but they can cause compression of the spinal cord. The chondromas are benign neoplasms characterized by the formation of cartilage and is rarely located in the spinal canal in both human and veterinary medicine. We describe a case of lumbar extradural chondroma in a dog that surgical decompression and removal of the mass allowed the resolution of clinical signs of paralysis with return of function of the hind limbs of the patient. As neoplasias com origem no canal medular são infrequentes na clínica veterinária de pequenos animais, porém quando presentes podem causar sinais neurológicos importantes. Anatomicamente estas neoplasias podem ser classificadas em extradural, intradural-extramedular e medular. As neoplasias extradurais estão localizadas fora da dura-máter, porém podem causar compressão da medula. Os condromas são neoplasias benignas, caracterizadas pela formação de tecido cartilaginoso sendo rara a sua localização no canal medular tanto em medicina humana como na medicina veterinária. O objetivo deste trabalho é descrever um caso de condroma extradural lombar em cão em que a descompressão cirúrgica e retirada da massa permitiu a resolução dos sinais clínicos de paralisia com retorno da função dos membros pélvicos do paciente.

  18. Commissioners' report

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In January 1979, a commission was appointed to inquire into the adequacy of existing measures to provide protection in all aspects of uranium mining in the province of British Columbia. When the provincial government decided in February 1980 that no uranium mining would be allowed for seven years, the commission ended its hearings and wrote its final report. The commissioners concluded that future energy requirements may well make necessary the use of all known uranium resources. If it were necessary to exploit British Columbia's uranium deposits the commissioners believe that it could be done in such a way that the work force would be adequately protected and the tailings could be safely disposed of. They recommend further research in the areas of waste disposal, radiation exposure standards, health effects of radiation of natural and human origin, and occupational health and safety for miners. The first volume of their report contains a discussion of the findings; v. 2 consists of a list of the holdings of the Commission's library; and v. 3 is an index to the submissions presented to the Commission

    The purpose of this project was to better understand the 'Multiscale Dynamics of Relaxor Ferroelectrics'. The output of the project is summarized in the narrative. The results of the work were presented at a number of different conferences and four papers were written, the references to which are also indicated in the report and which have also been uploaded on e-link. The multiscale dynamics of relaxors was clearly identified in the three characteristic temperatures that were identified. In particular, we were the first group to identify an intermediate temperature, T*, at which the correlations between off-center ions in relaxor cross-over from being dynamic to being static and giving rise to the characteristic relaxor behavior in the dielectric constant. Other groups have now confirmed the existence of such an intermediate temperature. We also made and reported two other observations: (1) a coherent interference phenomena (EIT-like effect) near the transition of several relaxors, which provides information on the nature and mechanism of the transition; and (2) in a similar way, inelastic neutron scattering results were interpreted as resonant scattering of acoustic phonons by localized modes in polar nanodomains. In parallel with the neutron scattering work, we also developed a theory of the scattering of phonons by the above localized modes. The theoretical development is very formal at this point and did not allow an easy comparison with the experimental results. This work is in progress.

Chapter 1, Introduction, provides a basic brief description of the SSC, its physics justification, its origins, and the R&D organization set up to carry out the work. Chapter 2 gives a summary of the main results of the R&D program, the tasks assigned to the four magnet R&D centers, and an overview of the future plans. The reader wishing a quick look at the SSC Phase I effort can skim Chapter 1 and read Chapter 2. Subsequent chapters discuss in more detail the activities on accelerator physics, accelerator systems, magnets and cryostats, injector, detector R&D, conventional facilities, and project planning and management. The magnet chapter (5) documents in text and photographs the impressive progress in successful construction of many model magnets, the development of cryostats with low heat leaks, and the improvement in current-carrying capacity of superconducting strand. Chapter 9 contains the budgets and schedules of the COG Divisions, the overall R&D program, including the laboratories, and also preliminary projections for construction. Appendices provide information on the various panels, task forces and workshops held by the CDG in FY 1985, a bibliography of COG and Laboratory reports on SSC and SSC-related work, and on private industrial involvement in the project.

    This paper examines what is important about talk between learners during school science and, having identified this, suggests how we can ensure that what we consider important happens. By looking at the interaction between teachers and learners talking about science, it is possible to indicate ways in which learners can be helped to continue this learning conversation with one another when teacher support is withdrawn. Strategies for teaching and learning are examined. The paper reports on the findings of a research project designed to teach children how to negotiate their ideas about science concepts through rational dialogue. Children's development of scientific concepts in classrooms is undertaken through structured activity and mediated through oral language. Children must move forward simultaneously in their use of specialized vocabulary and in their understanding of current scientific explanations, models and ideas. New language and new ways of using language are learned by doing, which means for children, primarily speaking and listening. Children's understanding of science can benefit from teaching them to understand that spoken language is a powerful tool for thinking together.

    We proposed to extend Maurer’s data sets through at least 2005 (to include extreme drought years in the Colorado basin). We updated and verified the forcings for tmin, tmax, and precipitation over the Colorado River basin at 1/8-deg spatial resolution through November 2008, with the potential to alter the resolution as needed (we subsequently extended the Maurer et al data set over the entire continental U.S. at 1/16 degree spatial resolution; see Livneh et al., 2013). We proposed to use either MODIS-based land cover data for recent years, or modification of the existing fixed seasonal cycle used in VIC (based on University of Maryland land cover data) to represent interannual variations in vegetation characteristics such as leaf area index (LAI) particularly in drought years. We assessed model performance with respect to evapotranspiration estimation through comparison of the model predictions with ground observations and in experiments that use time-varying and fixed seasonal LAI cycles (based on University of Maryland land cover data) in a test region of northwestern Mexico where the ground ET observations from eddy covariance tower sites are available for the period from 2001 to 2008 (Tang et al., 2011). We also proposed to implement statistical downscaling with an adjustment to constrain precipitation changes at the GCM level. These simulations were performed, using 20 IPCC AR4 GCMs over the Colorado River basin with two global emissions scenarios, and are reported in Vano et al., 2014. Task 2: Coupled model implementation We proposed to implement the “standard” climate version of WRF, as used by collaborator Ruby Leung in NARCCAP simulations (see Section 5.4), and perform tests to assure that model output for runs equivalent to NARCCAP Phase 1 (reanalysis boundary conditions) are consistent. We proposed do test sensitivity to higher spatial resolution. We made a run of 11 years’ length with the “standard” version of WRF, forced by NCEP/DOE with

Thin film Si solar cells on lightweight stoable polymer offer great advantage for terrestrial and space power applications. In summary we have demonstrated through this research the viability of producing low cost nano-, poly-, and epitaxial Si material on substrates of choice for applications in economically viable environmentally friendly sustainable solar power systems. This truly enabling technology has widespread applications in multibillion dollar electronic industry and consumer products.

    OAK B135 The formation of metastable crystalline phases in lithium disilicate glass has been a subject of controversy for decades. Here, one aspect of this problem relating to the stability of these non-equilibrium phases when glasses are heated for extended time periods in the nucleation regime is addressed. The results of a systematic experimental investigation on the persistence of metastable phases and the factors that may influence the appearance of such phases, e.g., water content, impurities, glass composition, and glass preparation procedure are presented. Growth rates of lithium disilicate crystals in lithium disilicate glass are measured as a function water concentration in the glass and of temperature in the deeply undercooled regime. The growth rate data obtained in this work are combined with data reported in the literature and used to assess the applicability of standard models of crystal growth for the description of experimental results over a very broad temperature range. The reduced growth rate versus undercooling graph is found to consist of three regimes. For undercoolings less than 140°C, the reduced growth rate curve is suggestive of either 2-D surface nucleation or screw dislocation growth. For undercoolings greater than 400°C, the reduced growth rate plot suggests the operative crystal growth mechanism is 2-D surface nucleation, but detailed calculations cast doubt upon this conclusion. In the intermediate undercooling range, there appears to be some sort of transitional behavior for which none of the standard models appear to be applicable. Further, it is observed that small differences in the viscosity data employed can produce enormous differences in the predicted growth rates at larger undercoolings. Results of the kinetic analyses conducted herein seem to indicate that the nature of the kinetic rate coefficient used in the standard growth models may be incorrect.

    Full Text Available Descreve-se um caso de displasia renal em um bezerro Limousin, macho, de quatro meses. O animal apresentava perda de peso, baixa taxa de crescimento, anorexia, apatia, diarréia escura fétida e uremia, sem melhora apesar de tratamento. O bezerro foi sacrificado para interromper o sofrimento adicional e submetido à necropsia. Ao exame foi observado que os rins estavam pequenos, firmes, pálidos e com superfície rugosa. A cápsula estava aderida à uma superfície subcapsular irregular. O córtex tinha aparência difusamente pálida e fibrosa e apresentava múltiplos focos brancos de fibrose. A junção córtico-medular estava indistinta. O exame histologico dos rins revelou múltiplos glomérulos imaturos com núcleo periférico, capilares inaparentes e padrão arbóreo. O córtex renal apresentou túbulos primitivos com epitélio cubóide ou cilíndrico envolvido por mesênquima corado somente pelo alcian blue e não pelo tricrômico de Masson. Foi também observada leve fibrose intersticial na medula renal. Os rins mostravam estruturas em estágio inapropriado de desenvolvimento ou anômalas.

    Full Text Available In a 52-year-old woman, spinal arteriovenous malformation (AVM has been associated with what has been known as Foix-Alajouanine syndrome. The pathophysiology of the AV fistula is probably related to increased venous pressure from the AVM plus thrombotic process.The most common initial symptoms are sensory disturbance, pain and leg weakness. Definitive diagnosis of spinal AVMs requires radiographic demonstration of the vascular anomaly. Nevertheless, in this case, suggestive defects of malformations could not be seen, in contrast to the MRI findings and macroscopical and anatomical-pathological lesion. These findings rise our attention, about the need to keep in mind the clinical suspicion of AVM in cases of back pain and motor deficit, and an early surgical conduct in this situation.Em mulher de 52 anos, malformação artério-venosa medular (MAV associava-se com a síndrome de Foix-Alajouanine. A fisiopatologia da fístula artéria-venosa provavelmente está relacionada com a pressão venosa aumentada, a partir da MAV associada com o processo trombótico. Os sintomas iniciais mais comuns são distúrbio sensorial, dor e fraqueza do membro inferior. O diagnóstico definitivo de MAV medular requer evidências radiográficas da anomalia vascular. De qualquer modo, neste caso, defeitos sugestivos de malformações não foram detectados, contrastando com os achados de ressonância magnética e lesões macroscópicas e anátomo-patológicas. Estes resultados chamaram a atenção e excluíram outras causas. A alta suspeita clínica de MAV nos levou a uma conduta cirúrgica precoce em benefício do paciente.

    Full Text Available Introduction & Background: Despite well-known technologic advances in medical imaging and availability of modern modalities, the reporting aspect of radiology practice had not been changed until recent decade when IT facilities were used to improve the quality and workflow of radiology reporting. Report is still considered the most important indicator of the performance of radiologists. In this article some methods and technologies used to electronically produce and distribute radiology reports are shared. Automated / Semi-authomated Data Entry: One of the old methods to produce a report has been touch-screen panels to enter data using a checklist. It has replaced by modern PC based applications. Dictation / Speech Recognition: Automation of natural language reporting is the most widely developed method for electronic reporting. Hardware and software are designed for speech recognition, editing and elec-tronic signature. The effectiveness of this method in costs and time has been repeatedly documented. Although primarily seemed to be an automation of routine radiology practice, speech recognition has changed the work-flow of radiology department. A typical speech recognition system consists of (1 a speech engine, (2 an inter-face, (3 Integration (with PACS & RIS, (4 Navigation, (5 Macros & Templates, (6 Network issues, (7 User preferences, and (8 Text-to-voice converter. Structured Reporting: Structured reporting has been introduced as one of major substitutes for speech recogni-tion technology. Findings and interpretations are inserted into the report text using a promising capability to be integrated to a decision support system. DICOM standard permits inclusion of test element to images that are distributed with PACS and telecommunicated. In this way, when the clinician is viewing the image, inter-pretation and findings are also attached to the file. Currently DICOM SR has not the ability to be used as a comprehensive structured reporting

    Full Text Available Objective: To establish a prediction model of the degree of disability in adults with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI based on the use of the WHO-DAS II . Methods: The disability degree was correlated with three variable groups: clinical, sociodemographic and those related with rehabilitation services. A model of multiple linearregression was built to predict disability. 45 people with sciexhibiting diverse etiology, neurological level and completenessparticipated. Patients were older than 18 and they had more than a six-month post-injury. The WHO-DAS II and the ASIA impairment scale(AIS were used. Results: Variables that evidenced a significant relationship with disability were the following: occupationalsituation, type of affiliation to the public health care system, injury evolution time, neurological level, partial preservation zone,ais motor and sensory scores and number of clinical complications during the last year. Complications significantly associated todisability were joint pain, urinary infections, intestinal problemsand autonomic disreflexia. None of the variables related to rehabilitation services showed significant association with disability. The disability degree exhibited significant differencesin favor of the groups that received the following services: assistive devices supply and vocational, job or educational counseling. Conclusions: The best prediction disability model inadults with sci with more than six months post-injury was built withvariables of injury evolution time, AIS sensory score and injury-related unemployment.

    Full Text Available From fifteen female dogs with clinical diagnoses of pyometra, hematological exams were performed at three times: M0 (prior to the surgery, M24 (24h after ovarysalpingohisterectomy-OSH and M48 (48h after OSH. Anemia was seen in 80% of the cases, characterized as mild normocytic normochromic type. The means of total leukocyte counts were 27.043, 57.940 and 40.139 céls/µL in M0, M24 and M48. A total of80% of the animals presented neutrophilic left shift in all moments. During medullar exams, the cellular, iron reserve and megakaryocytic concentration were raised as well as the ME ratio, showing a value of 26,3:1,0, probably due to the elevation of granular proliferation and maturation compartment, as the mean of the reserve compartment was within normal range. As 83% of the animals with neutrophilic left shift showed a melullary reserve compartment raised, it can be concluded that female dogs with piometra had left shift of neutrophils with disproportionally between compartments, without segmented medullar saturation.

    The regulatory toxicology report is an unusual document that requires a particular skill to write. The report must be clear, accurate, concise, and focused. A clear and direct writing style is required. The end-users of the report will hope to find the information they seek with as little effort as possible. Few, or none, will read the entire document. The author should aim to appease the user by obliging him to read as little text and turn as few pages as possible. This chapter gives tips and guidance on how to present the experimental data and write the narrative text in the final study report for a teratology study.

    Full Text Available JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: Apresentar um caso de paciente com hematoma peridural, na vigência do uso de cateter peridural e heparina de baixo peso molecular, seu quadro clínico e tratamento. RELATO DO CASO: Paciente do sexo feminino, 75 anos, submetida à fixação de coluna lombar por via anterior, que desenvolveu no pós-operatório quadro clínico de paralisia progressiva nos membros inferiores, com perda de sensibilidade, sem apresentar dor radicular intensa. O tratamento foi descompressão medular imediata, com drenagem e limpeza cirúrgica de hematoma peridural, que se estendia da quinta até a décima vértebra torácica. Após a drenagem do hematoma a paciente recuperou gradualmente a força nos membros inferiores, recebeu alta em 10 dias com quadro de disfunção esfincteriana. Após três meses o quadro regrediu e não houve seqüela neurológica definitiva. CONCLUSÕES: O rápido diagnóstico com intervenção cirúrgica precoce é o tratamento mais eficaz para redução de lesão neurológica, em pacientes que desenvolvem hematoma peridural no pós-operatório. A utilização de heparina de baixo peso molecular, na vigência do uso de cateter peridural, exige a adesão estrita a protocolos estabelecidos, para que se reduzam os riscos do desenvolvimento de hematoma peridural.JUSTIFICATIVA Y OBJETIVOS: presentar el caso de una paciente con hematoma peridural, con uso actual de catéter peridural y heparina de bajo peso molecular, su cuadro clínico y tratamiento.

  9. Heat Capacity Analysis Report

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The purpose of this report is to provide heat capacity values for the host and surrounding rock layers for the waste repository at Yucca Mountain. The heat capacity representations provided by this analysis are used in unsaturated zone (UZ) flow, transport, and coupled processes numerical modeling activities, and in thermal analyses as part of the design of the repository to support the license application. Among the reports that use the heat capacity values estimated in this report are the ''Multiscale Thermohydrologic Model'' report, the ''Drift Degradation Analysis'' report, the ''Ventilation Model and Analysis Report, the Igneous Intrusion Impacts on Waste Packages and Waste Forms'' report, the ''Dike/Drift Interactions report, the Drift-Scale Coupled Processes (DST and TH Seepage) Models'' report, and the ''In-Drift Natural Convection and Condensation'' report. The specific objective of this study is to determine the rock-grain and rock-mass heat capacities for the geologic stratigraphy identified in the ''Mineralogic Model (MM3.0) Report'' (BSC 2004 [DIRS 170031], Table 1-1). This report provides estimates of the heat capacity for all stratigraphic layers except the Paleozoic, for which the mineralogic abundance data required to estimate the heat capacity are not available. The temperature range of interest in this analysis is 25 C to 325 C. This interval is broken into three separate temperature sub-intervals: 25 C to 95 C, 95 C to 114 C, and 114 C to 325 C, which correspond to the preboiling, trans-boiling, and postboiling regimes. Heat capacity is defined as the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of a unit mass of material by one degree (Nimick and Connolly 1991 [DIRS 100690], p. 5). The rock-grain heat capacity is defined as the heat capacity of the rock solids (minerals), and does not include the effect of water that exists in the rock pores. By comparison, the rock-mass heat capacity considers the heat capacity of both solids and pore

    The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, NV, the National Board for Industrial and Technical Development, NUTEK, and the Swedish Institute for Transport and Communications Analysis, SIKA, have been commissioned by the Government to furnish background material for Sweden`s second national report on climate change. The national report is a commitment vis-a-vis the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC). Sweden`s first national report was presented in 1994, and the second was completed and adopted by the Government on 3 April 1997. This study is a more detailed account based on NUTEK`s background material for the national report. NUTEK has been Sweden`s central authority within the energy field. The authority`s work with the background material for the national report has primarily been concentrated on projections of the future development of the energy system. However, the forecasts for energy use in the transport sector are mainly based on forecasts of transport activity prepared by SIKA. Furthermore NUTEK has been responsible for the calculations of the effects of policy instruments on the carbon dioxide emissions. The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for the calculations of emissions of climate gases in the background material for the national report. These calculations of the energy system`s emissions of carbon dioxide and other climate gases are based on NUTEK`s energy forecasts 13 figs, 38 tabs
