    The Coronary Arterial Illness (EAC) is the first cause of death of those Mexicans. Among their numerous risk factors it highlights the age with more bias starting from the 45 years. The objective of this investigation was to determine the prevailing of ischemic cardiopathy (Cl) and heart attack to the myocardium (IAM) in fellows smaller than 40 years and to identify risk factors. The study of myocardial perfusion (EPM) it is a non invasive study and of great sensibility and specificity that it allows to detect obstructive coronary lesions. The used method was retrospective-traverse Study in 125 patients smaller than 40 years. Files of patients to who EPM had been practiced with Technetium 99m-SESTAMlBI, protocol of one day, were revised, where its were analyzed the short and long axis (vertical and horizontal). General data, somatometry, emotional profile analysis, lipids and glucose profiles were gathered. Results. The population conformed it 53% women and 47% men with average of 31.9 year-old age of corporal mass index (IMC) 25.1 kg/cm{sup 2}. 46% of abnormal studies was obtained, of which 35% was compatible with ischemic cardiopathy (Cl) and 11% with heart attack to the myocardium (IAM). The characteristics of these were: age 31.6{+-}6 Vs 32.6{+-}5.9 years; IMC 25.4{+-}7.0 Vs 24.4{+-}3.34 kg/cm{sup 2}; stature 161.6{+-}9.8 Vs 165.5{+-}9.7cm; TAS 139.1{+-}29.2 Vs. 115{+-}13.4 mm Hg, TAD 84.5{+-}17.4 Vs. 75{+-}9.4 mm Hg; civil state married 65.5% (p=0.005) Vs single 57%; bigger depression 32% Vs anxiety 28%, in the group of patients with Cl and IAM, respectively. In the IAM population it was found an additional IRC 21% (p=0.030), HAS 21% (p=0.025) and drug addiction 21% (p=0.002). The rest of the results didn't show significant differences. Conclusion: Only 6.5% of the patients that went to EPM-{sup 99m}Tc-SESTAMIBl in a 6 year-old lapse, were smaller than 40 years. 71% of them was referred by prechordal pain in who almost the half it was evidenced Cl or IAM. In this investigation besides the well-known risk factors for EAC, the masculine kind; to suffer IRC, HAS; hypertriglyceridemia; the use of illicit drugs and the civil state favored the presence of EAC in young.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: Há cada vez mais evidências sugerindo que doença de Chagas envolve dano oxidativo e contribui para a progressão da doença cardíaca. OBJETIVO: Avaliar o efeito do carvedilol sobre marcadores de estresse oxidativo na doença de Chagas crônica. MÉTODOS: A população de estudo incluiu 42 pacientes com cardiopatia chagásica e os biomarcadores de estresse oxidativo foram medidos antes e após um período de seis meses de tratamento com carvedilol (37,5 mg/dia. Os pacientes foram considerados de acordo com a classificação de Los Andes, e a atividade da superóxido dismutase, catalase, glutationa peroxidase, S-transferase e redutase, mieloperoxidase e adenosina deaminase; e os níveis de glutationa reduzida, de espécies reativas do ácido tiobarbitúrico, proteína carbonil, vitamina E e óxido nítrico foram medidos no sangue. RESULTADOS: Após o tratamento com carvedilol, todos os grupos apresentaram reduções significativas nos níveis de proteína carbonil e glutationa reduzida, enquanto os níveis de óxido nítrico e atividade da adenosina aumentaram significativamente somente no grupo IA. Além disso, a maioria das enzimas antioxidantes apresentou diminuição de suas atividades, nos grupos IA e IB. CONCLUSÃO: Os dados sugerem que o tratamento com carvedilol foi eficaz na atenuação do dano oxidativo, um efeito que pode ser particularmente importante em doença de Chagas crônica com cardiopatia.

    Recent advances in pharmacology, diagnostic and invasive procedures provide a series of modalities that diminish the morbidity and increase the long term survival in the patients that have suffered a heart attack to myocardium. The stratification by risk is an essential element for the handling of the survivors of heart attack to myocardium. In their attention it is looked for to optimize the therapeutic benefit, to diminish the unnecessary diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and to improve the efficiency. For example, a coronariography in sick with heart attack to myocardium it is not cost-effective if not is clinically suitable. Of there that from the institutional point of view, this is, of the Mexican Institute of the Public Health, they are required of appropriate reference approaches and counter reference to grant to the sick person, the best service that is the one in this case the diagnostic and the handling of the ischemic cardiopathy with the smallest waste of resources. The estimation of the annual survival is the base of the stratification, it constitutes the angular stone of the early handling of the heart attack to myocardium. The goal for the clinical would be to identify patients with intermediate risk, since, this risk makes them candidates to therapy interventionist. As long as those with low risk won't require intervention. This would allow the decrease of rates by revenues of heart attack to myocardium, and therefore to diminish the hospital staying rates. The Nuclear Cardiology (myocardial gammagraphy) it is not the only invasive method available to evaluate the myocardial perfusion in sick in who coronary illness is suspected. When the myocardial gammagraphy is carried out in appropriate population, the cost it diminishes because it restricts the necessity of additional invasive evaluations. This because the nuclear cardiology has predictive value so much for the mortality like to detect myocardial viability. Based on these probabilities, the doctor it could recommend diagnostic tests more sensitive and by this more cost-effective. The goal of this study was to design a model that compared cost-effectiveness of the gammagraphy in the diagnosis of the coronary illness by means of computed tomography by emission of simple protons (SPECT).

    Full Text Available Coelhos jovens de ambos os sexos (1-2 meses de idade, outbred, inoculados com tripomastigotas da cepa Colômbia de Trypanosoma cruzi desenvolveram lesões cardíacas, macro e microscópicas, além de características parasitológicas e imunológicas, muito semelhantes às observadas na doença de Chagas humana, tanto na fase aguda como na fase crônica. Na fase aguda a síndrome cardíaca caracteriza-se macroscopicamente por discreta cardiomegalia, com dilatação de câmaras direitas, e miscroscopicamente por miocardite focal pouco acentuada; na fase crônica, por cardiomegalia moderada ou acentuada, com hipertrofia e dilatação de câmaras e adelgaçamento da ponta (aneurisma apical, predominantemente do ventrículo esquerdo, e por miocardite focal, cóm áreas de necrose miocitolítica e degeneração de miocélulas, associadas a infiltrado inflamatório, principalmente composto de linfócitos, e fibrose intersticial. Devido à reprodução de aspectos da doença cardíaca chagásica humana em tempo relativamente curto, à simplicidade, à disponibilidade para múltiplos pesquisadores e ao baixo custo, o modelo representado pelo coelho constitui uma alternativa para estudos dos mecanismos, patologia e tratamento da cardiopatia chagásica.

    Full Text Available Foi feita uma revisão critica da literatura sobre cardiopatia da Doença de Chagas, discutindo-se os principais aspectos clínicos desta cardiopatia á luz da experiência por nós adquirida nestes últimos anos. A evolução dos conhecimentos clínicos sobre esquisotripanose pode ser sintetisada em três fases: a A primeira corresponde á descoberta da doença, feita por Chagas, e á descrição por ele e seus primeiros colaboradores das manifestações clínicas essenciais da nova entidade mórbida, na qual distinguiu a forma aguda e várias formas crônicas. b Na segunda fase, a pesquisa orientou-se essencialmente pela busca dos casos de infecção aguda, havendo considerável duvida a respeito da realidade clinica das formas crônicas da infecção. Durante um longo período raros casos de cardiopatia crônica foram publicados. Ate o momento acual (1948 encontram-se na literatura estrangeira 134 casos de cardiopatia crônica chagásica, dos quais 9 autopsiados; ate fins de 1944, o numero de casos publicados no Brasil, fora de Lassance, era de 45, dos quais 3 autopsiados. c A terceira fase ou fase atual, tende a caracterisar-se por um interesse particular nos casos de infecção crônica, orientando-se porém a pesquisa cli¬nica essencialmente pelas manifestações da cardiopatia. Contribuições recentes de ordem clínica e experimental trouxeram ampla confirmação as idéias de Chagas a respeito desta cardiopatia e colocaram-na em posição de entidade clinica de realidade indiscutível. Sua importância social esta sendo determinada e os dados disponíveis já lhe apontam relevante significação em certas regiões. Mais de 600 casos de cardiopatia crônica chagásica foram publicados no Brasil nestes últimos quatro anos.

Contudo, há controvérsias a respeito do manuseio da anticoagulação em mulheres portadoras de cardiopatias. A importância deste assunto assenta-se no fato de que o tromboembolismo é considerado uma das principais causas de morte materna em portadoras de cardiopatia, o que torna obrigatório o conhecimento sobre sua prevenção. A estratégia do tratamento antitrombótico é ponderada pelo risco de trombose imposto pela situação clínica materna e pelos efeitos adversos que os anticoagulantes podem causar ao concepto. Neste artigo, serão discutidas a estratificação do risco materno ao tromboembolismo, as propriedades dos anticoagulantes indicados para a sua prevenção e a estratégia terapêutica nos diversos momentos da gestação, parto e puerpério da mulher portadora de cardiopatia.Guidelines provide great contribution to the reduction of potential obstetric and fetal risks and to the improvement of health care during pregnancy and puerperium. However, there are still controversies regarding the management of anticoagulation in women with heart diseases. The importance of this issue is based on the fact that thromboembolism is considered one of the main causes of maternal death in women with heart diseases; therefore, the acquisition of knowledge about how to prevent this disorder is mandatory. The strategy of the antithrombotic treatment is based on the risk of thrombosis imposed by the maternal clinical picture and on the adverse effects of the anticoagulants for the conceptus. In the present study, we discussed the stratification of maternal risk of thromboembolism, the properties of the anticoagulants indicated for its prevention, and the therapeutic strategy at different moments of pregnancy, delivery and puerperium of women with heart diseases.

    Full Text Available O Contegra, um enxerto de veia jugular bovina, tem sido amplamente utilizado como biomaterial de preferência no tratamento cirúrgico das cardiopatias congênitas, especialmente como um conduto para a reconstrução da via de saída ventricular direita. Este artigo tem como objetivo fazer uma revisão abrangente sobre os desfechos clínicos do Contegra. Foram recuperados, coletados e analisados, relatos de Contegra publicados desde 2002. Havia 1.718 Contegra, aplicados em 1.705 pacientes. Os tamanhos dos condutos foram de 8-22 mm. As idades dos pacientes foram de recém-nascidos até 74,5 anos, com prevalência de pacientes pediátricos. O diagnóstico primário foi cardiopatia congênita em todos os casos, sendo os três diagnósticos principais: tetralogia de Fallot, tronco arterioso e atresia pulmonar, que representaram 25,6%, 16,7% e 13,1%, respectivamente. O Contegra foi utilizado como enxerto tubular na posição pulmonar em 1635 (95,9% pacientes, como remendo monocúspide em 12 (0,7%, como enxerto na posição da valva pulmonar ou monocúspide em 40 (2,3%, e, como conduto artéria pulmonar-veia cava inferior na operação de Fontan, em 18 (1,1% pacientes, respectivamente.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: Malformações extracardíacas podem estar presentes em pacientes com cardiopatia congênita (CC, trazendo maior risco de comorbidade e mortalidade. OBJETIVO: Verificar a frequência e os tipos de anormalidades abdominais detectadas em crianças com e sem CC através do ultrassom abdominal (USA, comparar os pacientes quanto a seus achados dismórficos/citogenéticos e realizar uma estimativa do custo-benefício da triagem pelo USA. MÉTODOS: Foi realizado um estudo transversal com controle. Os casos consistiram de pacientes com CC admitidos pela primeira vez em uma unidade de terapia intensiva pediátrica; os controles consistiram de crianças sem CC submetidas ao USA no hospital logo após cada caso. Todos os pacientes com CC foram submetidos ao USA, ao cariótipo de alta resolução e à hibridização in situ fluorescente (FISH para microdeleção 22q11.2. RESULTADOS: USA identificou anormalidades clinicamente significativas em 12,2% dos casos e em 5,2% dos controles (p = 0,009, com um poder de significância de 76,6%. A maioria das malformações com significado clínico foi de anomalias renais (10,4% nos casos e 4,9% nos controles, p = 0,034. No Brasil, o custo de um exame de USA pelo Sistema Único de Saúde é de 21 dólares. Uma vez que anormalidades clinicamente significativas foram observadas em um a cada 8,2 pacientes com CC, o custo para identificar uma criança afetada foi de 176 dólares. CONCLUSÃO: Pacientes com CC apresentam uma frequência significativa de anomalias detectadas pelo USA, um método diagnóstico barato e não invasivo, com boa sensibilidade. O custo da triagem para esses defeitos é consideravelmente menor que o custo para tratar as complicações do diagnóstico tardio de malformações abdominais, como a doença renal.

    Full Text Available A natureza dos antigenos do T. cruzi, bem como dos fatores do hospedeiro que contribuem para a cardiopatia chagásica tem sido intensamente investigada nestes últimos anos. Nesse contexto, a caracterização funcional das populações de linfócitos T reativos na fase crônica da doença é particularmente relevante. No presente trabalho, pretende-se analisar a resposta proliferativa de células mononucleares de sangue periférico de pacientes acometidos com a forma cardíaca da doença de Chagas. Os estudos se restrigem à cruzipaina, a cisteíno-protease majoritária do T. cruzi, uma glicoproteína altamente irnunogênica em pacientes chagásicos. Utilizando o índice de estimulação (IE das culturas de células mononucleares como critério de avaliação de reatividade celular, analisamos 24 individuos: doadores normais (n = 8, cardiopatas não-chagásicos (n = 8 e cardiopatas chagásicos crônicos (n = 8 sem outras associações mórbidas. Pela análise de variância observou-se que os IE dos pacientes chagásicos são significativamente mais altos do que o valor observado nos demais grupos (p = 0,0001 enquanto o teste de comparações múltiplas de Tukey revelou que a média do IE dos individuos normais e cardiopatas não-chagásicos não difere significativamente entre si. Nossos estudos indicam que a resposta dos linfócitos T, face à cruzipaina, está exclusivamente associada ã doença de Chagas. A análise do repertório de epitópos T da cruzipaina e do padrão funcional de reatividade (Th1/Th2 de linfócitos T de sangue periférico estã sendo presentemente conduzida. Em vista da abundante expressão de cruzipaina presente em amastigotas, é possível que linfócitos T anticruzipaina participem das reações inflamatórias associadas com a cardiopatia chagásica. A caracterização destas subpopulações poderá oferecer possíveis subsídios para a identificação de marcadores de cardiopatia chagásica.

OBJETIVO: Descrever o perfil dos pacientes com idade superior a 16 anos com cardiopatia congênita operados e analisar os fatores de risco preditivos de mortalidade hospitalar. MÉTODOS: Mil, quinhentos e vinte pacientes (idade média 27 ± 13 anos foram operados entre janeiro de 1986 e dezembro de 2010. Foram realizadas análise descritiva do perfil epidemiológico da população estudada e análise dos fatores de risco para mortalidade hospitalar, considerando escore de complexidade, ano em que a cirurgia foi realizada, procedimento realizado pelo cirurgião pediátrico ou não e presença de reoperação. RESULTADOS: Ocorreu um crescimento expressivo no número de casos a partir do ano 2000. A média do escore de complexidade foi 5,4 e os defeitos septais corresponderam a 45% dos casos. A mortalidade geral foi 7,7% e o maior número de procedimentos (973 ou 61,9% com maior complexidade foi realizado por cirurgiões pediátricos. Complexidade (OR 1,5, reoperação (OR 2,17 e cirurgião pediátrico (OR 0,28 foram fatores de risco independentes que influenciaram a mortalidade. A análise multivariada mostrou que o ano em que a cirurgia foi realizada (OR 1,03, a complexidade (OR 1,44 e o cirurgião pediátrico (OR 0,28 influenciaram no resultado. CONCLUSÃO: Observa-se um número crescente de pacientes com idade superior a 16 anos e que, apesar do grande número de casos simples, os mais complexos foram encaminhados para os cirurgiões pediátricos, que apresentaram menor mortalidade, em especial nos anos mais recentes.

MÉTODOS: Estudo transversal que incluiu crianças portadoras de síndrome de Down nascidas e residentes em Pelotas no período de janeiro de 2000 a dezembro de 2005. Os dados foram obtidos através de entrevistas realizadas nos domicílios dos pacientes, com as mães ou seus familiares legais. Para o estudo dos fatores relacionados à presença de cardiopatia congênita, foram realizadas análises univariada e bivariada. RESULTADOS: Foram entrevistadas 47 mães de pacientes com síndrome de Down, sendo que 22 (46,8% pacientes apresentavam diagnóstico de cardiopatia congênita. Destes, 28% receberam avaliação cardiológica precoce, antes dos 3 meses de vida. A cardiopatia mais frequente foi a comunicação interatrial (17%; o defeito do septo atrioventricular ocorreu em cinco pacientes. A análise bivariada entre o desfecho presença de cardiopatia congênita e os fatores preditores idade materna, idade paterna, cor dos pais e da criança, presença de outras malformações e sexo da criança mostraram que as associações não foram estatisticamente significativas. CONCLUSÕES: As prevalências de síndrome de Down e de cardiopatia congênita em nossa região apresentam-se semelhantes às encontradas por outros autores, ressaltando-se a importância da suspeita diagnóstica e do encaminhamento precoce por parte dos pediatras para avaliação cardiológica.

    Full Text Available Estimulada pelo desafio de gerenciar toda a informação envolvida na formação do conhecimento na área de saúde, a Informática Médica desenvolveu-se em larga escala em todos os países. O recente sucesso da rede Internet como veículo de distribuição de informação incentiva a elaboração de programas médicos para utilização através dessa rede. A elaboração de um programa de apoio à decisão - para cardiopatias congênitas em forma de documento em hipertexto de World-Wide Web - apresentado pela Internet possibilitaria o aproveitamento das características de processamento e armazenamento distribuído dessa rede. Este projeto teve como objetivos: criar um modelo de guia de tomada de decisão em cirurgia cardíaca pediátrica usando como base a Atresia Tricúspide; avaliar o grau de complexidade da criação deste modelo e os benefícios pelo emprego de interface em página WEB; testar sua validação com os casos de 16 pacientes tratados na Universidade Federal de São Paulo, no período de 1980 a março de 1997. Com a utilização de hardware adequado e da linguagem de programação HTML, o programa foi desenvolvido com a utilização de 7 telas de fluxograma, conjunto de textos e 37 ilustrações. Durante a elaboração deste modelo foi possível constatar a possibilidade de fácil desenvolvimento e rápida atualização. O resultado da validação mostrou concordância significativa (91,66% com as indicações cirúrgicas realizadas pelos especialistas, na Universidade Federal de São Paulo.

    Full Text Available Em um período de 10 anos, de novembro de 1976 a novembro de 1986, foram realizadas 1088 cirurgias, em pacientes com cardiopatias pediátricas, com menos de 15 anos de idade, e em pacientes com cardiopatias congênitas. Foram corrigidos, com o auxílio da CEC, 670 casos e, com cirurgia clássica, 418 casos. Foram reoperados 111 pacientes (10,2%. Pacientes com lesões valvares adquiridas e com menos de 15 anos de Idade, analisados neste trabalho, compreenderam 120 casos (11,1%. A mortalidade hospitalar global foi de 10,4%, sendo 11,2% com auxílio de CEC e 9,1% sem CEC. Foi observada uma queda de mortalidade, nos anos de 1985 e 1986, correspondendo a 6,8% e 5,7%, respectivamente. Nesse período de 2 anos, foram realizadas 179 cirurgias, sendo corrigidas 54 cardiopatias congênitas cianóticas, com 7 óbitos (12,9%, e 125 acianóticas, com 2 óbitos (1,6%. A maior mortalidade ocorreu no primeiro ano de vida (20,7%, havendo uma diminuição do número de óbitos nas outras faixas etárias, especialmente acima do quarto ano de vida. A análise dos fatores que influíram na diminuição da mortalidade revelou: indicação mais freqüente de cirurgias pediátricas no primeiro ano de vida, análise cuidadosa da anatomia cirúrgica, definições precisas do momento da intervenção e técnicas de cirurgia, melhor proteção miocárdica, condições físicas e médicas no pós-operatório e maior experiência cirúrgica.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: analisar os resultados obtidos em programa de rastreamento e diagnóstico de arritmias e cardiopatias congênitas centrado em uma unidade terciária e determinar a importância do diagnóstico precoce na evolução fetal e neonatal. MÉTODOS: foram analisados os resultados da avaliação cardíaca fetal efetuada em 1159 gestantes em dois níveis diferentes. Nível I: uso da ultra-sonografia morfológica com o objetivo de rastrear a presença de alteração cardíaca, sem estabelecer um diagnóstico diferencial. Nível II: por ecocardiograma fetal com o objetivo de diagnosticar as cardiopatias fetais existentes. Os resultados da detecção de arritmias bem como da avaliação das alterações estruturais foram comparados, sendo estabelecidas a sensibilidade e a especificidade para ambos os níveis no pré-natal, ao exame pós-natal ou à necropsia. A concordância entre ambos os níveis foi calculada pelo índice kappa. RESULTADOS: as arritmias detectadas no nível I foram confirmadas em todos os casos e não houve falso-negativos, sendo que em cinco pacientes houve necessidade de tratamento intra-útero. A detecção das alterações estruturais obtidas no nível I teve sensibilidade de 72% e especificidade de 98%, com 28% de falso-positivos. No nível II estes parâmetros foram, respectivamente, de 100 e 99%. De acordo com o coeficiente kappa de 57%, um grau de concordância de categoria moderada foi observado entre ambos os níveis. Das cardiopatias congênitas da nossa série 51% necessitaram intervenção farmacológica ou invasiva no período neonatal. CONCLUSÃO: o estudo ultra-sonográfico obstétrico é fundamental no rastreamento das alterações cardíacas fetais. O ecocardiograma fetal apresentou alto índice de sensibilidade e especificidade no diagnóstico das arritmias e cardiopatias congênitas, possibilitando o tratamento precoce das alterações graves.PURPOSE: to analyze the results of a screening and diagnostic

Métodos: Tratou-se de um estudo transversal e de caráter descritivo. Estudaram-se 30 crianças com CCCs, de faixa etária entre zero e oito anos. Analisaram-se as variáveis prevalência de acometimento por sexo, tipo de malformação congênita e índices antropométricos (Peso/Idade, Altura/Idade e Peso/Altura os quais foram comparados com valores padronizados e propostos para a idade de acordo com a tabela de desenvolvimento pondo-estatural (DPE normal do National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS. Resultados: Houve um maior acometimento do gênero masculino sendo que as CCCs mais incidentes foram a Tetralogia de Fallot e a Dupla Transposição de Grandes Vasos da Base. Dentre as crianças com CCCs, 90% apresentavam um menor índice Peso/ Idade, 83% apresentavam um menor índice Altura/Idade e 97% tinham um menor índice de DPE (Peso/Altura. Conclusões: Crianças com CCCs apresentam uma alta prevalência de hipodesenvolvimento ponderal, déficit de crescimento linear e hipodesenvolvimento pondoestatural comparado à padrões de referência do NCHS. A assistência nutricional e o incentivo à prática de atividade física teriam um papel importante na reabilitação física após a correção cirúrgica da malformação congênita em crianças com CCCs.

    Full Text Available Na maioria dos chagásicos crônicos o Trypanosoma cruzi não é detectado no tecido ou apresenta se com extrema raridade, mesmo quando é pesquisado exaustivamente. Sendo os métodos utilizados, até então, inespecíficos para a demonstração do T. cruzi, propôs-se no presente trabalho proceder ao estudo comparativo entre o método convencional (HE e o método imunocitoquímico pela peroxidase anti-peroxidase (PAP, na avaliação quantitativa do parasitismo. Selecionaram-se 3 casos de cardiopatia chagásica crônica e, de um mesmo fragmento de cada caso, obtiveram se cortes que foram corados pelo H.E. (média de 100 cortes por caso e, consecutivamente, outros que foram corados pelo PAP (média de 70 cortes por caso. O caso n.° 1 foi autopsiado em 1952 e apresentava parasitismo freqüente. Nos demais, o exame rotineiro foi negativo. Obtiveram-se os seguintes resultados expressos em n.° de ninhos/100 cortes, respectivamente, corados pelo H.E. e pelo P.A.P. (HE/PAP. Caso n.° 1 - 80/171; caso n.° 2 = 5/116 e caso n.° 3 = 1/2. Os resultados mostram que o método imunocitoquímico empregado, além de facilitar o diagnóstico do parasitismo, demonstra também pequenos ninhos de amastigotas que dificilmente seriam diagnosticados pelos métodos convencionais; além disso mostrou-se útil mesmo em tecido incluídos em parafina há longo tempo.

Os mecanismos adaptativos que protegem o metabolismo do miocárdio durante a hipóxia são coordenados, em parte, pelo óxido nítrico (NO. OBJETIVO: Observar a biogênese mitocondrial e expressão do óxido nítrico sintase (NOS em corações de cardiopatia congênita com cianose; discutir a resposta mitocondrial à hipóxia crônica do miocárdio. MÉTODOS: Foram investigados 20 pacientes com defeitos cardíacos cianóticos (n = 10 ou acianóticos (n = 10. Foram estudadas amostras do miocárdio na via de saída ventricular direita, tomadas durante a operação. A análise morfométrica de mitocôndrias foi realizada por microscopia eletrônica de transmissão. A relação mtDNA/nDNA foi determinada com PCR em tempo real. Os níveis de transcrição da subunidade I da citocromo c oxidase (COXI, coativador-1α do receptor γ ativado por proliferador de peroxissoma (PGC-1α, o fator respiratório nuclear 1 (NRF1, e fator de transcrição mitocondrial A (Tfam foram detectados por reação em cadeia da polimerase via transcriptase reversa (RT-PCR ativado por fluorescência em tempo real. Os níveis proteicos de COXI e nNOS, iNOS e eNOS foram medidos por técnica de Western Blot. RESULTADOS: A densidade volumétrica mitocondrial (Vv e a densidade numérica (Nv foram significativamente elevadas em pacientes com cianose, em comparação com a cardiopatia congênita acianótica. MtDNA elevada e suprarregulação dos níveis de COXI, PGC-1 α, NRF1 e Tfam mRNA foram observadas em pacientes cianóticos. Os níveis de proteína de COXI e eNOS foram significativamente maiores no miocárdio de pacientes cianóticos que nos de acianóticos. Os níveis de transcrição do PGC-1α se correlacionam com os níveis de eNOS. CONCLUSÃO: A biogênese mitocondrial é ativada no miocárdio da via de saída ventricular na

Pesquisamos: antígenos de T. cruzi , fatores de crescimento (GM-CSF, TGF-beta1, PDGF-A e PDGF-B e células inflamatórias (CD4+, CD8+, CD20+ e CD68+. A razão média CD4+/CD8+ foi 0,6 ± 0,3. O número médio de macrófagos (CD68+ foi 5,9±3,1; de células intersticiais PDGF-A+ foi 7,5 ± 4,3; PDGF-B+ 2,9 ± 2,7, TGF-beta1+ 2,2 ± 1,9 e GM-CSF+ 2,3 ± 1,9. A marcação para PDGF-A foi geralmente intensa, ocorrendo também em endotélio, células musculares lisas e sarcolema; não houve correlação dessa positividade com a quantidade de células intersticiais positivas para os mesmos fatores. TGF-beta1 ocorreu em baixa expressão em 100% dos casos. Em conclusão, PDGF-A e B são, provavelmente, os fatores de crescimento mais relacionados às lesões proliferativas na cardiopatia chagásica crônica e, conseqüentemente, à fibrose. GM-CSF e TGF-beta1 estão pouco expressos. Não houve correlação estatisticamente significante entre os fatores de crescimento e a quantidade de parasita.In this work we quantified various growth factors in the myocardium of 19 patients with chronic chagasic cardiomyopathy and heart failure, through the immunoperoxidase technique.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: Malformações extracardíacas podem estar presentes em pacientes com cardiopatia congênita (CC, trazendo maior risco de comorbidade e mortalidade. OBJETIVO: Verificar a frequência e os tipos de anormalidades abdominais detectadas em crianças com e sem CC através do ultrassom abdominal (USA, comparar os pacientes quanto a seus achados dismórficos/citogenéticos e realizar uma estimativa do custo-benefício da triagem pelo USA. MÉTODOS: Foi realizado um estudo transversal com controle. Os casos consistiram de pacientes com CC admitidos pela primeira vez em uma unidade de terapia intensiva pediátrica; os controles consistiram de crianças sem CC submetidas ao USA no hospital logo após cada caso. Todos os pacientes com CC foram submetidos ao USA, ao cariótipo de alta resolução e à hibridização in situ fluorescente (FISH para microdeleção 22q11.2. RESULTADOS: USA identificou anormalidades clinicamente significativas em 12,2% dos casos e em 5,2% dos controles (p = 0,009, com um poder de significância de 76,6%. A maioria das malformações com significado clínico foi de anomalias renais (10,4% nos casos e 4,9% nos controles, p = 0,034. No Brasil, o custo de um exame de USA pelo Sistema Único de Saúde é de 21 dólares. Uma vez que anormalidades clinicamente significativas foram observadas em um a cada 8,2 pacientes com CC, o custo para identificar uma criança afetada foi de 176 dólares. CONCLUSÃO: Pacientes com CC apresentam uma frequência significativa de anomalias detectadas pelo USA, um método diagnóstico barato e não invasivo, com boa sensibilidade. O custo da triagem para esses defeitos é consideravelmente menor que o custo para tratar as complicações do diagnóstico tardio de malformações abdominais, como a doença renal.BACKGROUND: Extracardiac malformations may be present in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD, bringing greater risk of comorbidity and mortality.

Foram corrigidos, com o auxílio da CEC, 670 casos e, com cirurgia clássica, 418 casos. Foram reoperados 111 pacientes (10,2%. Pacientes com lesões valvares adquiridas e com menos de 15 anos de Idade, analisados neste trabalho, compreenderam 120 casos (11,1%. A mortalidade hospitalar global foi de 10,4%, sendo 11,2% com auxílio de CEC e 9,1% sem CEC. Foi observada uma queda de mortalidade, nos anos de 1985 e 1986, correspondendo a 6,8% e 5,7%, respectivamente. Nesse período de 2 anos, foram realizadas 179 cirurgias, sendo corrigidas 54 cardiopatias congênitas cianóticas, com 7 óbitos (12,9%, e 125 acianóticas, com 2 óbitos (1,6%. A maior mortalidade ocorreu no primeiro ano de vida (20,7%, havendo uma diminuição do número de óbitos nas outras faixas etárias, especialmente acima do quarto ano de vida. A análise dos fatores que influíram na diminuição da mortalidade revelou: indicação mais freqüente de cirurgias pediátricas no primeiro ano de vida, análise cuidadosa da anatomia cirúrgica, definições precisas do momento da intervenção e técnicas de cirurgia, melhor proteção miocárdica, condições físicas e médicas no pós-operatório e maior experiência cirúrgica.From November 1976 to November 1986,1088 cardiac surgeries were performed in patients younger than fifteen years old.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Determinar a acurácia diagnóstica do ecocardiograma, analisando prospectivamente, o valor do método na indicação cirúrgica sem cateterismo em portadores de cardiopatia congênita, através da comparação do diagnóstico ecocardiográfico com os achados intra-operatórios e/ou do estudo invasivo. MÉTODOS: De fevereiro/2000 a janeiro/2001, foram acompanhados 493 pacientes cardiopatas congênitos com indicação cirúrgica, submetidos a ecocardiograma com mapeamento de fluxo em cores para decisão terapêutica. Os resultados foram comparados aos achados cirúrgicos e/ou de cateterismo quando realizado para complementação diagnóstica. RESULTADOS: Dos pacientes estudados, 94,3% (465 casos foram submetidos à correção da cardiopatia congênita apenas com o ecocardiograma e sem cateterismo diagnóstico. O estudo invasivo foi realizado para complementação diagnóstica em 28 (5,6% casos, o tratamento cirúrgico realizado em mais de 95% dos casos e o cateterismo terapêutico em 3,6%. Os achados do ecocardiograma se confirmaram em 464 (94,1% dos casos, demonstrando uma alta acurácia do método. Ocorreram 8 (1,6% casos de falso positivos e 39 (7,9% casos de falso negativos. Segundo os cirurgiões, nenhum dos erros diagnósticos levaram a complicações ou afetaram os resultados cirúrgicos adversamente. CONCLUSÃO: O ecocardiograma se mostrou método sensível e seguro para indicação cirúrgica, dispensando, muitas vezes, a realização de estudo invasivo, ficando este, restrito aos casos de complementação diagnóstica ou terapêutica.OBJECTIVE: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of echocardiography for indicating surgery without catheterization in patients with congenital heart disease through a prospective analysis and comparison of the echocardiographic diagnosis with the intraoperative findings, or invasive study, or both.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: Inúmeros fatores vêm contribuindo para a mudança do perfil do paciente com cardiopatia congênita (CC, incluindo o diagnóstico pré-natal e a disponibilidade de novos procedimentos terapêuticos. O conhecimento dessas mudanças é fundamental para um melhor atendimento. OBJETIVOS: Descrever o perfil dos pacientes com CC de um serviço de referência no Estado do Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil. MÉTODOS: Trata-se de um estudo transversal, com 684 pacientes portadores de CC, em um serviço de cardiologia pediátrica, de janeiro de 2007 a maio de 2008. Esses pacientes foram entrevistados (e/ou seus pais e examinados (malformações congênitas, medidas antropométricas, além de terem seus prontuários revisados para mais detalhes sobre as cardiopatias, procedimentos e ecocardiografia. RESULTADOS: A idade dos pacientes variou de 16 dias a 66 anos, sendo 51,8% do sexo feminino, com 93,7% de brancos. A idade média determinada pelo diagnóstico foi de 15,8 ± 46,8 meses. As CC mais prevalentes foram a comunicação interventricular, a persistência do canal arterial e a Tetralogia de Fallot. Dos pacientes analisados, 59,1%, com idade média de 44,3 ± 71,2 meses, realizaram algum procedimento terapêutico; 30,4% tinham malformações congênitas extracardíacas; e 12 pacientes tinham síndrome genética comprovada. Quanto ao desenvolvimento, 46,6% tiveram atraso ponderoestatural e 13,7% atraso neuropsicomotor. Além disso, 18,4% apresentaram história familiar de cardiopatia congênita. CONCLUSÕES: O atraso neuropsicomotor e o baixo ganho ponderoestatural podem estar associados às CC. Estabelecer um perfil dos pacientes com CC atendidos em uma instituição de referência pode servir como base para o planejamento adequado do atendimento desta população.BACKGROUND: Several factors, which include prenatal diagnosis and availability of new therapeutic procedures, have contributed to change the profile of patients with congenital heart

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: A associação das funções autonômica cardíaca e ventricular sisto-diastólica variavelmente alteradas ainda é controversa e pouco explorada na cardiopatia chagásica crônica. OBJETIVO: Avaliar em que extensão as funções autonômica cardíaca e mecânica ventricular estão alteradas e se ambas estão relacionadas na cardiopatia chagásica assintomática. MÉTODOS: EM 13 cardiopatas chagásicos assintomáticos e 15 indivíduos normais (grupo controle, foram avaliadas e correlacionadas a modulação autonômica da variabilidade da frequência cardíaca durante cinco minutos, nos domínios temporal e espectral, nas posições supina e ortostática, e a função ventricular com base em variáveis morfofuncionais Doppler ecocardiográficas. A análise estatística empregou o teste de Mann-Whitney e a correlação de Spearman. RESULTADOS: Em ambas as posições, os índices temporais (p = 0,0004-0,01 e as áreas espectrais total (p = 0,0007-0,005 e absoluta, de baixa e alta frequências (p = 0,0001-0,002, mostraram-se menores no grupo chagásico. O balanço vagossimpático mostrou-se semelhante em ambas as posturas (p = 0,43-0,89. As variáveis ecocardiográficas não diferiram entre os grupos (p = 0,13-0,82, exceto o diâmetro sistólico final do ventrículo esquerdo que se mostrou maior (p = 0,04, correlacionando-se diretamente com os reduzidos índices da modulação autonômica global (p = 0,01-0,04 e parassimpática (p = 0,002-0,01, nos pacientes chagásicos, em posição ortostática. CONCLUSÃO: AS DEpressões simpática e parassimpática com balanço preservado associaram-se apenas a um indicador de disfunção ventricular. Isso sugere que a disfunção autonômica cardíaca pode preceder e ser independentemente mais severa que a disfunção ventricular, não havendo associação causal entre ambos os distúrbios na cardiopatia chagásica crônica.BACKGROUND: The association of variably altered cardiac autonomic and

    tipo Fenton-adsorcion con el que se obtuvieron mejores resultados que con otros tratamientos fisicoquimicos o biologicos reportados en la literatura. El proceso Fenton consiste en tratar la carga contaminante con una combinacion de H{sub 2}O{sub 2} y FeSO4 en condiciones acidas. Se evaluo si la filtracion de los lodos producidos durante el proceso Fenton es un proceso mas eficiente que la sedimentacion. Se determino el tiempo de contacto optimo de la oxidacion Fenton, asi como la dosis optima de los reactivos usados en funcion de la DQO del lixiviado, mediante la determinacion de las mejores relaciones [Fe{sup 2+}]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] y [DQO]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}]. Despues de optimizar el proceso, se filtraron las muestras oxidadas y se ensayo la adsorcion mediante columnas empacadas con carbon activado granular. Se concluyo que el lodo generado por el proceso Fenton se remueve mas eficientemente mediante filtracion que por sedimentacion. Los tiempos de contacto optimos fueron de 5 min para la remocion de la DQO y una hora para la remocion de color, tiempo elegido para proteger el carbon activado. Las mejores relaciones para [Fe{sup 2+}]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] y [DQO]/[H{sub 2}O{sub 2}] fueron 0.6 y 9, respectivamente. La eficiencia maxima de remocion despues del proceso de adsorcion fue de 98.9 % para la DQO y 100 % para el color. El indice de biodegradabilidad final alcanzado despues de las pruebas de Fenton-adsorcion fue de 0.24.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Analisar os resultados iniciais da utilização do enxerto tubular orgânico, utilizados para anastomoses sistêmico-pulmonares. MÉTODOS: De março/2002 a abril/2003, 10 pacientes foram submetidos à realização de shunt sistêmico pulmonar tipo Blalock-Taussig modificado utilizando um novo tipo de enxerto biológico originado da artéria mesentérica bovina tratada com poliglicol denominado L-D-Hydro. A idade variou de 3 dias a 7 anos e 60% dos pacientes eram do sexo masculino. O diagnóstico das cardiopatias foi determinado pela ecocardiografia, todos apresentando sinais clínicos de hipóxia severa (cianose. As cardiopatias foram: tetralogia de Fallot (40%, atresia tricúspide (50%, defeito do septo atrioventricular (10%. RESULTADOS: Em 10 pacientes, ocorreu um óbito por sepse e em nove houve melhora imediata na saturação de O2 ao oxímetro de pulso e da pressão parcial de oxigênio à gasometria arterial. Nenhum paciente apresentou obstrução do shunt no pós-operatório imediato ou qualquer outra complicação. Todos os pacientes mostraram shunt pérvio ao exame ecocardiográfico no pós-operatório imediato e tardio, realizado no 3º mês de pós-operatório. Nenhum paciente apresentou sangramento no intra e pós-operatório. CONCLUSÃO: O enxerto tubular L-D-HYDRO demonstrou ser promissor para a realização de shunt sistêmico pulmonar, como alternativa para produtos inorgânicos existentes no mercado, entretanto, temos de ter maior número de implantes e acompanhamento tardio para uma avaliação definitiva.OBJECTIVE: To analyze the initial results of the use of an organic tubular graft for systemic-pulmonary anastomoses.

En este trabajo se analiza el impacto del estado fisico del aislamiento termico sobre las perdidas de calor en las tuberias de la red de vaporductos del CGCP y se estima la magnitud de estas perdidas mediante la aplicacion de un metodo iterativo. Este metodo permitio determinar la temperatura de superficie con base en un balance de calor que considera los tres mecanismos basicos de transferencia de calor: conduccion, conveccion y radiacion termica. Finalmente, con base en la determinacion de longitudes y diametros para cada estado de aislamiento de los vaporductos y en las condiciones de operacion globales de la red, se cuantifican las perdidas de calor a traves de los aislantes para toda la red de transporte. Los resultados obtenidos permitieron evaluar la magnitud de estas perdidas en comparacion con la perdida global de energia que ocurre durante el transporte de vapor desde los pozos hasta las plantas de generacion electrica.

Material and method: fifteen DICOM images were converted to JPEG with a compression ratio of 1:10 to 1:60 and were assessed together with the original images by three neuro radiologists. The number, morphology and signal intensity of the lesions were analyzed. Results: lesions were properly identified up to a 1:30 ratio. More lesions were identified with a 1:10 ratio then in the original images. Morphology and edges were properly evaluated up toa 1:40 ratio. Compression did not affect signal. Conclusion: small lesions were identified ( < 2 mm ) and in all compression ratios the JPEG algorithm generated image noise that misled observers to identify more lesions in JPEG images then in DICOM images, thus generating false-positive results.(author)

    Full Text Available O estudo de 724 pacientes chagásicos crônicos mostrou que a insuficiência cardíaca congestiva é mais freqüente e de aparecimento mais precoce nos pacientes de raça negra do que nos brancos. A ocorrência de "megas" foi ligeiramente inferior nos chagásicos negros não sendo estatisticamente significativa a diferença observada. A maior freqüência de insuficiência cardíaca nos pretos parece estar relacionada a características biológicas do tecido conjuntivo que condicionam uma resposta fibrosante mais acentuada no miocârdio agredido pela Tripanossomose. Estas observações estariam de acordo com outros estudos sobre a doença de Chagas que admitem ser a denervação o fator mais importante para o aparecimento dos "megas" e a inflamação com fibrose miocârdica acentuada um elemento básico para explicar a insuficiência cardíaca.

Complicações advindas do uso prolongado da sonda nasoenteral poderiam ser evitadas com a execução da gastrostomia endoscópica. Esta é alternativa técnica para acesso ao tubo digestivo em nutrição enteral. O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar o tempo de indicação para gastrostomia endoscópica em pacientes com nutrição enteral com uso de sonda nasoenteral e as principais complicações do procedimento. Doze pacientes foram submetidos a gastrostomia endoscópica, sendo oito do sexo masculino. A idade média foi de 62,42 + 22,10 anos. A indicação principal foi síndrome isquêmica cerebral após parada cardiorespiratória por patologia clínica (sete pacientes ou cirurgia cardiovascular complicada (cinco. O tempo médio para indicação da gastrostomia endoscópica foi de 35,58 + 26,79 dias após introdução da nutrição enteral. Não houve intercorrências com o procedimento e, no período pós-operatório tardio, ocorreu infecção do orifício de inserção da gastrostomia endoscópica em um caso, resolvida com cuidados locais. Em conclusão, a gastrostomia endoscópica é técnica segura, com baixa incidência de complicações. Pode ser realizada em ambulatório, no leito do paciente, ou em centro de terapia intensiva e sua indicação deveria ser mais precoce.Complicated cardiologic patients with brain ischemia and heart failure need long term enteral nutrition.

Náo houve mortalidade hospitalar. Ecopplercardiograma realizado antes da alta hospitalar mostrou boa correlação com o estudo per-operatório. Foi possível colher informações do seguimento tardio de 53 pacientes. Ocorreu 1 óbito tardio três meses após a cirurgia, por morte súbita. Quatro pacientes foram reoperados e submetidos a troca valvar: uma paciente no 4º mês de pós-operatório (PO, por falha primária do procedimento, e outros três no 6º, 34º e 38º meses de PO, por comprovada recidiva da cardite reumática. Os demais encontram-se em classe funcional I e II (NYHA. Concluímos, baseados nos resultados apresentados, que a anuloplastia mitral assimétrica é um excelente procedimento para pacientes jovens com valvopatia reumática, constituindo-se numa boa alternativa à troca de valva ou implante de anéis, sendo, no entanto, extremamente importante o controle de recidivas da doença reumática.From September 1988 to July 1990, 56 patients under 20 years of age (mean 12.7 ± 5.12 years with pure or predominant mitral valve regurgitation secondary to rheumatic valve disease, underwent mitral valvuloplasty. Ninety-three percent of the patients were in functional class III ou IV (NYHA. The basic surgical technique used in all patients was a modified measured assy metric anuloplasty which was associated in 69.7% of the cases with another plastic procedure. Intraoperative echodopplercardiography was always used and showed a good correlation with the postoperatoty echo studies, with 64% of the patients free from residual lesions. There was no hospitalar mortality. Fifty-three (94.6% patients were followed from 1 to 40 months (mean 16.3%. There was one sudden death 3 months after the operation. Four patients were reoperated upon, 3 of whom due to recurrent rheumatic carditis. The remainder are in functional class I or II (NYHA. We conclude based on these early results that assymetric mitral anuloplasty is an excellent procedure for young patients with rheumatic heart disease, being a good alternative to valve replacement or ring implantations.

    The binding energy of the deuteron was measured and it was determined the neutron mass starting from the nuclear reaction, {sup 1}{sub 0} n + {sup 1}{sub 1} H {yields}{sup 2}{sub 1} D + {gamma}. The produced photon is soon a gamma ray that is emitted when the hydrogen captures a thermal neutron. The photon energy was measured using two spectrometric systems for gamma rays. A system with a detector of NaI(TI) of 3'' x 3'' and the other one with a High-purity Germanium detector. The first detector has a bigger efficiency and a smaller resolution in comparison with the second detector. The energy of the measured photon is the binding energy of the deuteron. With the measurement of the photon energy and the masses of the proton and of the deuterium it was determined the neutron mass. The value of the mass obtained with both systems it was compared with the value reported in the literature. The nuclear reaction was induced in a volume of paraffin that it was bombing with a source {sup 239} PuBe whose activity is of 3.7 x 10{sup 10} Bq. (Author)

    Despite many methods available biomass estimation of a bioprocess may sometimes become laborious and impracticable. Samples containing filamentous organisms, as in Wastewater Treatment Plants, present special counting difficulties. If they are abundant they may need to be estimated separately. In this work a counting method for these organisms is show. The main goal is to improve chlorination of activated sludge suffering bulking or foaming through a quantitative record of filamentous bacteria. (Author) 12 refs.

  9. Determinacion de periodos fundamentales del suelo mediante vibraciones ambientales en el municipio de Humacao, Puerto Rico

    Cintron Aponte, Rommel

    La tecnica de Nakamura ha sido utilizada a nivel mundial para determinar periodos fundamentales del suelo. La tecnica consiste en calcular y graficar cocientes espectrales H/V de vibraciones ambientales registradas sobre el suelo. Mediciones de vibraciones ambientales fueron tomadas en 151 lugares dentro del municipio de Humacao, localizado al este de Puerto Rico. Los datos se procesaron utilizando espectros de Fourier y espectros de potencia. La tecnica fue validada al compararla con los resultados de cocientes espectrales H/V de registros de sismos debiles y tambien con una modelacion numerica realizada con datos de un ensayo "downhole". Las graficas de los cocientes espectrales H/V fueron divididas en casos y grupos, los cuales dependen de la facilidad para identificar el periodo fundamental pico y amplitudes en frecuencias menores de 1 Hz, respectivamente. Los resultados obtenidos con ambos espectros fueron comparados y se concluye que los mismos se complementan para proveer resultados mas confiables. Se crearon mapas de periodos fundamentales, factores de amplitud, isoperiodos y clasificacion sismica de sitio. Los mapas de isoperiodos fueron realizados en las zonas mas pobladas sobre depositos de suelo. El mapa de periodos fundamentales del suelo mostro buena correlacion con la geologia local. El mapa de clasificacion sismica derivado de periodos de sitio fue comparado con el mapa de clasificacion sismica derivado de barrenos geotecnicos. El mapa de clasificacion obtenido de periodos puede sobreestimar un poco algunas clasificaciones del suelo. Sin embargo, este mapa puede proveer un estimado aproximado de la velocidad de onda de corte promedio del suelo hasta una profundidad de 100 pies (30 metros).

    In the last years the methodologies to determine the dose in computed tomography have been revised. In this work was realized a dosimetric study about the exploration protocols used for simulation of radiotherapy treatments. The methodology described in the Report No. 111 of the American Association of Medical Physiques on a computed tomograph of two cuts was applied. A cylindrical phantom of water was used with dimensions: 30 cm of diameter and 50 cm of longitude that simulates the absorption and dispersion conditions of a mature body of size average. The doses were determined with ionization chamber and thermoluminescent dosimetry. The results indicate that the dose information that provides the tomograph underestimates the dose between 32 and 35%.

    Uc Way, Manuel Eugenio

    1998-02-01

    Due to the corrosion by high temperature there is a serious problem of unavailability and efficiency of the steam generators in the thermoelectric power stations. One of the parts that is more affected by this phenomenon is the superheater tube banks. In order to diminish this problem it is intended to apply to these tubes a metallic coating nickel and chromium based (80Ni20Cr), the deposition of the coating is made by the method of thermal spraying of powders by flame. The coating thickness once it has been deposited is of the order of 500mm, it is doubtless that the thermal flow between gases of combustion and the fluid conducted in the tubes is affected. That is why it is important to know the thermal conductivity of the coating in order to evaluate the impact that it has in the operation of the steam generator. This necessity is the one that gives rise to the present thesis project, in which a technique that allows to measure the thermal conductivity of the coating is designed. The experimentation is carried out taking as departure point the ASTM norm E1225-87 and is adapted to the characteristics of the material to prove. A test piece of stainless steel 316 was designed to measure the thermal flow that traverses the coating. First the experimental installation was characterized in order to determine its reliability. Later the experimentation was made finding an average thermal conductivity of 2.09{+-}0.72 W/m K in the temperature interval of 110-180 Celsius degrees. This value is 12.3% inferior to the corresponding one of a solid metal of the same composition. If we consider that in the high temperature banks of the steam generators the thermal flow is in the interval from 15.000 to 100.000 W/m{sup 2} and a coating thickness of the order of 500mm it would cause that this material would introduce a temperature difference of 0.6 to 4 Celsius degrees, respectively. Please note that for the highest thermal flow a maximum affectation of 4 Celsuis degrees is obtained. This value is small when it is compared with the effect that introduces the deposition of slag in these banks of tubes, that is in the order of 50 to 250 Celsuis degrees approximately, for this interval of thermal flows. [Espanol] Debido a la corrosion por alta temperatura se tiene un serio problema por indisponibilidad y eficiencia de los generadores de vapor en las centrales termoelectricas. Una de las partes mas afectadas por este fenomeno son los bancos de tubos de los sobrecalentadores. Con el objeto de disminuir dicho problema se pretende aplicar a los tubos antes mencionados un recubrimiento metalico a base de niquel y cromo (80Ni20Cr), la deposicion del recubrimiento se hace por el metodo de termorrociado de polvos por flama. El espesor del recubrimiento una vez que ha sido depositado es del orden de 500mm, es indudable que el flujo termico entre los gases de combustion y el fluido conducido en los tubos se ve afectado. Por esto es importante conocer la conductividad termica del recubrimiento a fin de evaluar el impacto que se tiene en el funcionamiento del generador de vapor. Esta necesidad es la que da lugar al presente proyecto de tesis, en el cual se disena una tecnica que permite medir la conductividad termica del recubrimiento. La experimentacion se lleva a cabo tomando como punto de partida la norma E1225-87 de la ASTM y se adecua a las caracteristicas del material a probar. Se diseno una probeta de acero inoxidable 316 para medir el flujo termico que atraviesa el recubrimiento. Primero se caracterizo la instalacion experimental a fin de determinar su confiabilidad. Posteriormente se realizo la experimentacion encontrandose una conductividad termica promedio de 12.09{+-}0.72 W/m K en el intervalo de temperatura de 110-180 grados Celsius. Este valor es 12.3% inferior al correspondiente a un metal solido de la misma composicion. Si consideramos que en los bancos de alta temperatura de los generadores de vapor el flujo termico se encuentra en el intervalo de 15,000 a 100,000 W/m2 y un espesor de recubrimiento del orden de 500mm se tendria que dicho material introduciria una diferencia de temperatura de 0.6 a 4 grados Celsius, respectivamente. Notese que para el mas alto flujo termico se tiene una afectacion maxima de 4 grados Celsius. Este valor es pequeno cuando se le compara con el efecto que introduce la deposicion de escoria en dichos bancos de tubos que es del orden de 50 a 250 grados Celsius aproximadamente para dicho intervalo de flujos termicos.

    During the period 1993-95, the presence of Azolla ferns was observed in the air/water interface along several kilometres of the river Guadina in both Spain and Portugal. This fern is symbiotically associated with the cyano-bacteria Anabaena azollae that is capable of fixing atmospheric nitrogen, which can lead to vegetable growth and eutrophication. At the same time, the cyanobacteria may generate biotoxins, in which case a study is made of the hepatotoxins forming a family of 53 related cyclic peptides. Those consisting of seven aminoacids receive the name of microcystines, while formed by five aminoacids arc called nodulaincs. Chromatography was used to determine the presence of these peptides in the water from six sampling points. Microcystine-LR was found at concentrations of around 0.3 g/l at three points.

En el caso muy especial de la industria pesquera, donde solamente 14 establecimientos poseen tratamiento de los 42 activos hasta la fecha, se requiere del estudio y rápida puesta en marcha de alternativas que logren disminuir la carga contaminante hasta valores permisibles. Por tales motivos, además del estudio que se realizó a diferentes escalados para explorar y proponer un sistema de tratamiento por laguna de alta velocidad con microalgas del género Chlorella, se calcularon ecuaciones tanto empíricas como cinéticas a partir de los valores de Demanda Bioquímica de Oxígeno (DBO, con el objetivo de facilitar la predicción de la eficiencia del sistema en sí, así como su diseño. Para el cálculo de las ecuaciones empíricas se tuvieron en consideración las cargas orgánicas superficiales aplicadas y removidas (COa y COr y las cargas orgánicas volumétricas aplicadas y removidas (COva y COvr. Por otra parte, se comprobó que la ecuación de primer orden para un sistema en batch se ajusta al proceso depurador que ocurre en los mismos, siendo el valor promedio obtenido para la constante cinética del proceso 0,47 d¿1. Los resultados logrados en este estudio demuestran las grandes posibilidades que tienen las lagunas de alta velocidad para el tratamiento de las aguas residuales de la industria pesquera cubana, además de aportar una herramienta de gran valor para su diseño.

  4. Determination of forces induced by steam flow in turbines; Determinacion de fuerzas inducidas por flujo de vapor en turbinas

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Garcia Castrejon, Juan Carlos

    2008-09-15

    The steam flow induced vibrations in turbines is a common problem during the operation of 300 MW turbines and it is one of the problems that requires solution to develop 1 GW steam turbines. The flow induced vibration is caused because there is an interaction between blades and the flow field. Blades are subjected to the forces caused by the flow field, but also the flow field is affected by the blades and its movement. The nozzle wakes cause uneven pressure field downstream and produces alternating forces on blades which lead to blade vibrations. Some of the vibrations originated in this way may damage the blades and affect the turbine performance. The forces acting on blades (and causing forced vibrations) as a result of the variations in the flow field in the axial rotor-stator clearance are studied in this project. These forces were determined applying computer fluid dynamics (CFD) in two turbine stages. The CFD analysis was carried out in the Curtis stage and in the last stage, using 2D and 3D models. An important part of the analysis is focused on discussing the pressure field variation, because this variation caused the forces acting on blades. The flow field was resolved using CFD and the computed pressure field was integrated around the blades to get the forces acting on blades. These computed dynamical forces were analyzed using a FFT analysis and the results were used in the blade useful life estimation and in the investigation of the failure causes of these blades. In every turbine stage the RNG - turbulence model and the sliding mesh method was used to deal with the blade motion. The 3D models were resolved using parallel computation in a cluster of 6 AMD 64 Opteron processors of 2412.36 MHz and 8 Gb of RAM. The results of the simulation in both stages get the pressure field behavior in the axial rotor-stator clearance and determine the force acting on the blades. These results showed that both, the pressure field and the force magnitude acting on blades, has a harmonic pattern. The pressure field variation as time function is uniform: the peaks and valleys across the axial clearance are always in phase. However the instant picture of the pressure field it's different: the peaks and valleys are not in phase and the number of peaks and valley changed across the clearance. In the case of the forces acting on blades, a Fourier on the forces calculated was used to determine the coefficients and frequency of a Fourier equation which can be used to calculate the alternating stresses on the blade in order to predict the useful life blades. [Spanish] Las vibraciones inducidas por flujo de vapor en turbinas representan uno de los problemas que enfrenta la operacion de turbinas de vapor cuya capacidad rebasa los 300 MW. Ademas estas constituyen uno de los limites tecnologicos para el desarrollo de turbinas de vapor de mas de 1 GW. Este tipo de fenomeno tiene su origen en la interaccion del rotor con el fluido que se encuentra en sus proximidades. El flujo de vapor dentro de la turbina es complejo, ya que es turbulento e inestable. A medida que el flujo pasa una etapa de estator o de rotor, se generan secundarios, vortices en los filos de salida, estelas con caracteristicas de flujo diferentes al flujo principal en los pasajes. Estas variaciones en el flujo son las que inducen vibraciones forzadas en los alabes. Ademas existen varios factores que contribuyen a la aplicacion de vibraciones en alabes inducidas por flujo como son: inestabilidad del flujo de vapor en los claros de los sellos, secuencia de apertura de las valvulas, estelas de las toberas, obstrucciones en algunas de las toberas y diferente espaciamiento en las toberas. Las vibraciones por flujo pueden ser peligrosas si su frecuencia coincide con la frecuencia natural del sistema, provocando efectos mas nocivos que las vibraciones por desbalance o por desalineamiento, pues tienen amplitudes mas grandes y provocan esfuerzos alternantes en los componentes del rotor, lo que lleva a fracturas de los componentes por fatiga. Este trabajo estudia y calcula las fuerzas de excitacion de las vibraciones inducidas por flujo. Se realiza el analisis del flujo, en dos etapas diafragma-rotor de una turbina de vapor, con base en el Modelado Computacional de Dinamica de Fluidos (MCDF). Las etapas de la turbina bajo estudio son la primera etapa o paso Curtis y la ultima etapa o etapa de baja presion de la Turbina. El paso Curtis esta formado por alabes pequenos y el flujo esta sometido a altas presiones. El ultimo paso esta compuesto por alabes grandes y el flujo esta sometido a bajas presiones. El MCDF resuelve numericamente las ecuaciones que representan la dinamica de fluidos y se obtiene la variacion del campo de presion en el claro axial rotor-estator causada por la interaccion de las estelas del borde de salida de los diafragmas con el movimiento de los alabes. La variacion del campo de presion induce fuerzas en los alabes ocasionando vibraciones forzadas. En cada una de las etapas se realizaron simulaciones en 2D y 3D, que se resolvieron en funcion del tiempo, usando el modelo de turbulencia RNG - y la tecnica de malla deslizante, para simular el movimiento de los alabes. Los modelos en 3D se resolvieron usando computo en paralelo en un cluster compuesto por 6 procesadores AMD Optaron e 64 bits, 2412.36 MHz y 8Gb de memoria RAM. Los resultados de las simulaciones en las dos etapas, permitieron obtener el comportamiento del campo de presion en el claro axial tobera-rotor y las fuerzas que este campo induce sobre los alabes. La fuerza sobre los alabes fue calculada usando un codigo que se ejecutaba en cada paso temporal de la simulacion, esta fuerza fue posteriormente analizada usando la transformada rapida de Fourier para obtener la fuerza sobre los alabes como una expresion matematica. Usar el MCDF para obtener las fuerzas que actuan sobre los alabes y que son inducidas por flujo representa una ventaja sobre otros metodos de calculo que usan geometrias simplificadas en 2D y caracteristicas de flujo promedio, y no toman en cuenta la geometria real de las turbinas ni consideran que el flujo sea no homogeneo. Ademas con el MCDF se obtiene que las fuerzas inducidas son ondulatorias (cambian en su magnitud con respecto al tiempo), otros metodos de calculo solo muestran una fuerza constante en el tiempo. Finalmente el estudio de la presion en el claro axial tobera-rotor mostro que cuando los alabes estan en movimiento, el campo de flujo para una region dada del claro es completamente ondulatorio con sus picos o valles en fase. Cambiando solo la amplitud de las ondas. Pero instantaneamente el campo de presion tienen una forma diferente alturas, asi como tambien el numero de picos y valles en cada perfil cambia en el sentido del claro.

    The Mexico city is classified as one of the more populated cities of the world which presents a decrease in the air quality and that gives place to a severe problematic in atmospheric pollution. To cooperate in the solution of this problem it is necessary to carry out studies that allow a better knowledge of the atmosphere of the city. This study presents the results of a monitoring campaign of fine particle carried out from September 21 to December 12, 2001 in three sites of the Mexico City center area. The samples were collected every third day with a collector type unit of heaped filters (Gent). The analysis of these samples was carried out in the 2 MV accelerator of the National Institute of Nuclear Research (ININ) applying the PIXE technique and with this analysis its were identified in the samples approximately 15 elements in each one of the 3 sites and was calculated the concentration in that its were present. With these results a database was created and by means of it mathematical treatment the Enrichment factor (FE), the time series of each element and the multiple correlation matrix were evaluated. The obtained results showed that the Civil Registration site (Salto del Agua) it was the more polluted coinciding that to a bigger concentration of activities a bigger increase in the pollution is generated.

    The quantification of Tc-99 in spent exchange resins, coming from nuclear power plants, is indispensable to define their administration. The Tc-99 is a pure beta emitter of 210000 years of half-life, volatile and of a high mobility in water and soil. For this reason, the objective of this work is to establish a digestion method of ionic exchange resins containing technetium that retains more than 95% of this radioisotope. Mineralization tests were carried out of a resin Amberlite IRN-150 by means of an oxidation heat, in acid medium, varying the resin mass, the medium volume, the media type, the temperature and the digestion time. The digested samples were analyzed by gas chromatography to estimate the grade of their degradation. The {sup 99m}Tc was used as tracer to determine the technetium percentage recovered after mineralizing the resin. The digestion process depends on the temperature and the resin mass. At higher temperature better mineralization of samples and to greater resin mass to a constant temperature, less degradation of the resin. The spectra beta of the {sup 99m}Tc and {sup 99}Tc are presented. (Author)

    Managing health and safety risks in an integrated way with the operations of the organization has been of increasing importance in recent years. This approach reduces accident rates, reducing losses and improves the firm's productivity. However, very little attention has been paid to analyse the organizational factors that favour or limit the implementation of the safety management system in firms. In an attempt to address this gap in the literature, the present study focuses on the identification of the characteristics of the organization that encourage the development of this system. The results show that several factors, as firm's size, previous experience on quality and environmental management or internationalisation, among others, have a positive influence on safety management system.

    The natural water used for human consumption comes from different sources, which may contain suspended solids in varying proportions. In groundwater, the source of suspended solids is related to the dissolution of mineral strata by the waters and leaching of rocks. Also, the radioactivity could concentrate on the bodies of slow-moving water that eventually could present a risk to ecosystems, as well as for the consumer. The water usually contains several natural radionuclides as: tritium, radon, radio, uranium isotopes, etc. The objective of this study was to evaluate the concentration of {sup 40}K in water from different areas of Zacatecas state (Mexico). Four water samples were taken in triplicate from different areas; the {sup 40}K concentration was measured with a spectrum metric system of gamma radiation with NaI (Tl) scintillation detector of 7.62 cm. In the measuring process a standard was prepared using water and KCl analytic grade where the {sup 40}K concentration is 6.25 mol/Lt adding 250 mg/ml of potassium. Also the system was calibrated in energy using 3 point sources of {sup 137}Cs, diameter {sup 22}Na and 7.62 cm of height, using containers Marinelli and {sup 60}Co. In the obtained spectra was observed that the photon of 1.432 MeV that emits the {sup 40}K when decaying is the most important. The highest concentration was of 123 ± 5.2 Bq/lt and the lowest was of 9 ± 0.4 Bq/lt. Under the standards of drinking water, an amount of {sup 40}K deposits an effective dose which contributes to annual dose received by people. (Author)

    The present status of amorphous-silicon-solar-cell research and development at CIEMAT requires the possibility to characterise the devices prepared from the point of view of their stability against sunlight exposure. Therefore a set of tools providing such a capacity has been developed. Together with an introduction to photovoltaic applications of amorphous silicon and to the photodegradation problem, the present work describes the process of setting up these tools. An indoor controlled-photodegradation facility has been designed and built, and a procedure has been developed for the measurement of J-V characteristics in well established conditions. This method is suitable for a kinds of solar cells, even for those for which no model is still available. The photodegradation and characterisation of some cells has allowed to validate both the new testing facility and method. (Author) 14 refs.

    This paper analyzes the thermal comfort importance in a building. And the influence it exerts on quality of life as well as the efficiency of people work activities. There are comments about some models which better help to estimate the recommended temperature levels. The experimental evaluation results from a Mexico City population sampler are presented. This work was done in a Controlled Environment Laboratory; the obtained outcomes proved the preferences occupants exceed the comfort zone greatest limit accepted in the reference international standards. The meaning of this conclusion is thermal comfort can be reached with higher temperatures and consequently an energy consumption and an environment impact decrease. [Spanish] En este trabajo se analiza la importancia que tiene el confort termico en la calidad de vida de las personas que ocupan una edificacion y en la eficiencia de sus actividades. Se comentan algunos modelos con los cuales se estiman los niveles de temperatura recomendados y se presentan los resultados de una evaluacion experimental realizada en un Laboratorio de Ambiente Controlado con una muestra de la poblacion del Distrito Federal. Los resultados que se obtuvieron demuestran que los ocupantes tienen preferencias que rebasan el limite superior de la zona de confort comunmente aceptada en los estandares internacionales de referencia. Esto quiere decir que el confort puede lograrse con mayores temperaturas, lo que se traduce en menor consumo de energia y menor impacto en el ambiente.

    In this work the results of the analysis are presented, using the PIXE technique (Proton Induced X-ray Emission), in soil samples of the El Bordo, Vetagrande, Zacatecas, before and after subjecting them to a lixiviation process for the recovering of gold, silver and mercury. This community is part of the mining region nearer to the Zacatecas city municipality, region in which the mining exploitation dates from the colonial time. During almost 350 years the 'yard benefit' method was used or amalgamation with mercury, process that besides having used big quantities of mercury, generated a great quantity of mineral waste calls 'mine wetlands', those that were accumulating, crawled by the rains, toward the streams that end in the prey 'The Pedernalillo'. The dispersion of wetlands them it has extended from the prey until the communities of Tacoaleche, Zoquite, Lampotal and El Bordo, embracing an approximate area of 16 x 2 Km{sup 2} and forming with the course of the time an accumulated of several millions of tons. In order to determining if the process of recovery of gold, silver and mercury make soluble to other contained metals in these wastes, samples were gathered in an area of 600 m{sup 2} in the community of The Border, Vetagrande, Zacatecas. Half of the samples were subjected to the lixiviation process in a local metal recovery plant and the other part was analyzed without processing. The analysis of both types of samples by means of the PIXE was carried out in the University of Arizona in Tucson. (Author)

    We present results obtained for 41 faint star clusters located in the bar and the disc of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The observations were carried out with the ``Victor Blanco'' 4m telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory using the Washington and Kron-Cousins filters. Clusters' linear radii were determined from the stellar density radial profiles. Using theoretical isochrones; we derived ages and metallicities from extracted color-magnitude diagrams; previously cleaned from field star contamination. Whenever possible; we also derived ages using the parameter and estimated metallicities from the Standard Giant Branch procedure. We find that the two methods for both age and metallicitiy determination are in good agreement with each other. Since none of the observed clusters has been previously studied; the present fundamental parameter determinations turn out to be the first ones. Seventeen clusters were found to be intermediate-age clusters (1-2 Gyr); with [Fe/H] values ranging from -0.4 to -0.8. The remaining 24 clusters are aged between 125 and 900 Myr and their metallicities range between 0.0 and -0.4. FULL TEXT IN SPANISH

    Chagas disease (AD) was described by Carlos Chagas in 1909. It is caused by a parasite T. cruzi, transmitted by bugs, by blood transfusion, vertical and orally. The DC has two phases: acute and chronic. The evolution to the cardiac form occurs in about 30% of chronic cases and is the largest cause of mortality in chronic Chagas disease. The aim of this study was to Chagas' disease in patients of Tocantins, compared with other heart patients and asymptomatic from the standpoint of non-invasive exams using radiant energies such as echocardiography and ECG and RX. The descriptive study included 80 patients, 20 chronic form of Chagas disease, 20 indeterminate, 20 with other heart diseases, and 20 controls. There was a prevalence of 9.5% of chagasic patients treated in outpatient cardiology at Araguaina Tocantins, and 7.3% in chronic and 2.21% in the indeterminate. Of the chronic patients in the study 50% had mega esophagus and megacolon 4 (20%). Most patients had no family history of AD, nor was a smoker or drinker. Major electrocardiographic abnormalities found refer to driving. The evaluation of ICT, the chronic chagasic showed that increased by 40% of patients, 40% had esophageal changes and 20% of patients had megacolon s. The echocardiogram was abnormal in 42%). 27% of patients had EF below 55% changed. Changes in segmental contractility and Asynchrony septum were found in 80% of chronic Chagas disease. In 80% of the patients was observed diastolic dysfunction. The valvular changes occurred in 75%. Electrocardiographic abnormalities occurred in 80% of patients with CCC, while the other heart had ECG changes. Arterial hypertension had an incidence of 45% in patients with CCC and 40% in FCI. The systolic and diastolic ventricular dysfunction was more prevalent in groups that had an abnormal ECG and arrhythmia. Observed that the group of chagasic decreased ejection fraction is correlated to a higher incidence of arrhythmias besides diastolic dysfunction and related increased atrio-left, ICT correlates with LV size and EF and LA. The abnormal ECG also are related to the dysfunction. (author)

    Full Text Available Fundamento: Pacientes com doença de Chagas com alteração segmentar apresentam pior prognóstico independentemente da fração de ejeção ventricular esquerda. A ressonância magnética cardíaca é atualmente o melhor método para detecção de alteração segmentar e para avaliação de fibrose miocárdica. Objetivo: Quantificar a fibrose, por meio do realce tardio, pela ressonância magnética cardíaca, em pacientes com doença de Chagas com fração de ejeção ventricular esquerda preservada ou minimamente comprometida (> 45% e detectar padrões de dependência entre fibrose, alteração segmentar e fração de ejeção ventricular esquerda na presença de arritmia ventricular. Métodos: Foram realizados eletrocardiograma, teste ergométrico, Holter e ressonância magnética cardíaca em 61 pacientes, separados em três grupos: (1 eletrocardiograma normal e ressonância magnética cardíaca sem alteração segmentar; (2 eletrocardiograma alterado e ressonância magnética cardíaca sem alteração segmentar; e (3 ressonância magnética cardíaca com alteração segmentar independentemente de alteração no eletrocardiograma. Resultados: O número de pacientes com arritmia ventricular em relação ao número total de pacientes em cada grupo, a porcentagem de fibrose e a fração de ejeção ventricular esquerda foram, respectivamente: no primeiro grupo, 4/26, 0,74% e 74,34%; no segundo grupo, 4/16, 3,96% e 68,5%; e no terceiro grupo, 11/19, 14,07% e 55,59%. Arritmia ventricular foi encontrada em 31,1% dos pacientes. Aqueles com e sem arritmia ventricular apresentaram fração de ejeção ventricular esquerda média de 59,87% e 70,18%, respectivamente, e fibrose de 11,03% e 3,01%, respectivamente. Das variáveis alteração segmentar, grupos, idade, fração de ejeção ventricular esquerda e fibrose, a última foi a única significativa para a presença de arritmia ventricular, com ponto de corte de 11,78% para massa fibrosada (p < 0,001. Conclusão: Mesmo em pacientes com doença de Chagas com fração de ejeção ventricular esquerda preservada ou minimamente comprometida, a instabilidade elétrica pode estar presente. Fibrose é a variável mais importante para a presença de arritmia ventricular, sendo sua quantidade proporcional à complexidade dos grupos.

    Full Text Available A melhora clínica da função cardíaca pós aneurismectomia de ventrículo esquerdo e/ou cardiomioplastia com o músculo grande dorsal parece ser, ao menos parcialmente, devida ao remodelamento do ventrículo esquerdo. Através de pesquisa em nosso laboratório experimental com carneiros, demonstramos que o aumento do diâmetro do ventrículo é mais importante que a perda de massa muscular para a deterioração da função ventricular. Sabendo-se que em miocardiopatia dilatada não ocorre aumento de massa muscular, reduzimos o diâmetro do ventrículo para o normal, em uma série consecutiva de pacientes com esta lesão. No período de 1984 a 1995, foram operados com esta nova técnica, denominada, então, "Ventriculectomia Parcial", 103 pacientes portadores de miocardiopatias complexas e insuficiência cardíaca congestiva (NYHA IV. A operação é baseada na lei de Laplace (T=P.11.D e consistiu na remoção de uma fatia de músculo da parede lateral do ventrículo esquerdo, iniciando-se na ponta deste, estendendo-se entre os músculos papilares e terminando próximo ao anel mitral. A cirurgia é realizada sob circulação extracorpórea normotérmica e não se utiliza cardioplegia. "Todos os pacientes foram avaliados pré-operatoriamente com ecodopplercardiografia e ventriculografia digital, os quais revelaram fração de ejeção The clinical improvement of cardiac function post left ventricular aneurysmectomy and/or cardiomyoplasty with the latissimus dorsi muscle seems to be due to the remodeling of the left ventricle. We did some experiments with sheep in our laboratory and we concluded that the increment of ventricular diameter is more deleterious than loss of muscle mass to the ventricular function. Since there is no increment in muscle mass to the dilated hearts, we reduced their diameter to accomplish a better ventricular function in a series of very sick patients with dilated hearts. From 1984 to 1995, 103 patients with complex cardiac problems and end stage congestive heart failure (NYHA IV with dilated cardiomyopathy underwent "Partial Ventriculectomy". The operation was based on Laplace's law (T-P.II.D and consisted of removal of a large wedge of muscle from the lateral wall of the left ventricle beginning at the apex and extending between the papillary muscles, ending proximal to the mitral annulus. The operation was performed under normothermic cardiopulmonary bypass and no cardioplegia was used. Pre-operative left ventriculography and echocardiography showed global hypocontractility of the hearts with ejection fraction lower than 20% in all patients who were considered candidates for cardiac transplantation. Males were predominant (n=73 and the age varied from 19 to 74 years. The pathologies were: viral miocarditis (n=12; post miocardioplasty (n=1; Chagas' disease (n=15; valvular disease (n=38; ischemic disease (n=16; idiopathic (n=21. Hospital mortality (30 days post operative (n=13: pulmonary embolus (n=4; renal failure (n=5; bleeding (n=4. Late deaths (after 30 days post-operative (n=10: arhythmia (n=6; "cardiac failure" (n=2; unknown (n=2; 8 patients required reoperation for bleeding. There were no infection and none required IAPB. All patients had nipride and 19 needed inotropics. Post-op ventriculographies and echocardiographies showed improvement of EF (from 100% to 300%. In conclusion, this new technique "Partial Ventriculectomy", with it's purpose of reducing the ventricular diameter, may benefit patients with end stage heart failure. And this new concept may, in our experience, give the patient improvement in his clinical status and increase life span.

    It was studied the possible use of an Alanine/ESR dosemeter in the isodose curves mapping in normal treatments of Radiotherapy. It was manufactured a lot of 150 dosemeters with base in a mixture of D-L Alanine dust (80 %) and paraffin (20 %). Each dosemeter has 4.7 mm diameter and 12 mm length. A group of 100 dosemeters of the lot were arranged inside 50 holes of the slice 25 of the phantom Rando Man. The phantom irradiation was realized in two opposed projections (AP and PA) in Co-60 equipment. A group of 15 dosemeters was take of the same lot for obtaining the calibration curve in a 1-20 Gy range. After irradiation the signal of each dosemeter was measured in an ESR spectrometer operating in the X-band ({approx} 9.5 GHz) and the wideness of Alanine ESR spectra central line was correlated with the radiation dose. The wideness dose calibration curve resulted linear with a correlation coefficient 0.9996. The isodose curves obtained show a profile enough similar at comparing with the theoretical curves.

    An analytical study is presented based on an optimised method to determine selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with fluorescence detection. The work was focused to obtain reliable measurements of PAH in a gas work contaminated soil and was performed in the frame of the project 'Assessment of natural remediation technologies for PAHs in contaminated soils' (Spanish Plan Nacional l+D+i, CTM 2004-05832-CO2-01): First assays were focused to evaluate an initial proposed procedure by sonication extraction in the contaminated soil. Afterwards to extend the efficiency and reduce solvent and time consuming of extraction procedures, the more relevant parameters that affect the extraction step were investigated. A comparison between sonication and microwave procedures was done, and the influence of sample grinding was studied. In general, both extraction techniques led on comparable results, although sonication procedure needs to be more carefully optimised. Finally, as a final application of the optimised method, the effect of particle size on relative distribution of selected PAHs in the contaminated soil was investigated. Relative abundance of more volatile PAHs showed a decreasing according to lower grain size, while relative abundance of less volatile compounds indicated an increasing of concentration levels for lower grain size.

    The charge of lead-acid batteries (LAB), as in any other type of batteries, consists of replacing the energy consumed during the discharge. Nevertheless, as no physical or chemical process is good enough to totality recharge a battery, it is necessary to supply to it more than the 100% of the energy demanded during its discharge. A critical factor to make a suitable load control of the batteries is to determine its own state of load. That is to say, to have an efficient load control, it is necessary to count on means that allow to accurately determining the residual capacity of the battery to deliver load. This one is the one of the aspects of greater interest in the research centers around world. For this reason, in this work it was pretended to develop a calculation algorithm of the state of load of batteries based on a fuzzy-neural network that could calculate the state of load without using the battery current as an input. This is because one of the main problems for the designers of battery load controllers is the correct supervision of the current that circulates around the system in all the rank of operation of the same one because the sensors do not have a linear behavior. [Spanish] La recarga de baterias plomo-acido (BPA), como cualquier otro tipo de baterias, consiste en reponer la energia consumida durante la descarga. Sin embargo, como ningun proceso fisico o quimico es lo bastante eficiente para recargar a totalidad una bateria, es necesario suministrarle mas del 100% de la energia demandada durante su descarga. Un factor critico para realizar un adecuado control de carga de las baterias, es determinar su propio estado de carga. Es decir, para tener un control de carga eficiente, es necesario contar con un medio que permita determinar con precision la capacidad remanente de la bateria para entregar carga. Este es uno de los aspectos de mayor interes en los centros de investigacion alrededor el mundo. Por tal razon, en este trabajo se propuso desarrollar un algoritmo de calculo del estado de carga de baterias basado en una red neuro-difusa que pudiera calcular el estado de carga sin utilizar la corriente de la bateria como entrada. Ello se debe a que uno de los principales problemas para los disenadores de controladores de carga de bateria es la correcta supervision de la corriente que circula por el sistema en todo el rango de operacion del mismo pues los sensores no tienen un comportamiento lineal.

    The use of an additional dosimeter at the level of the neck above the lead apron we can provide an indication of the dose in the head (the Crystal dose). In addition, it is possible to combine the two readings of the dosimeter to provide an improved estimate of the effective dose. In the hemodynamics service of our Hospital we have maintained a worker for 3 years with the double dosimetry read monthly. With the readings from these dosimeters will do following algorithms, several estimates of the effective dose to see if, with working conditions that occur in this service, it would be necessary to extend this practice to the rest of the workers to get a better estimation of effective dose.

    This paper describes an analytical method to determine carbon content in solid and molten steel. It is based on the study of the emission spectrum from a Nd-YAG laser produced plasma. The light emitted from the plasma is focused to the entrance slit of a spectrometer and detected by an OMA III system. For every laser pulse an spectral range of 100 A are recorded. With the use of time-resolved spectroscopy a precision of 1.6 % and a detection limit of 65 ppm of carbon content in steel have been obtained. These values are similar to those of other accurate conventional techniques but using optics fiber and laser excitation it is possible to made sample calibrations in hostile environments. Also, as the analysis are made in real time changes in sample composition can be measured without stopping production processes. (Author) 26 refs.

    A methodology is presented to determine the optimal location of the capacitor banks in shunt for distribution networks. The proposed tool allows knowing the bank type to install (fixed, disconnect able or of pass), as well as the electrical parameters of the feeder and the economic benefit that the banks of capacitors represent, with a minimum of input data. Its development in a spreadsheet allows the analysis of numerous alternatives in an easy way. The method is based on that the structure of the feeders of distribution is, generally, of radial type, with which, and by means of an iterative process, the optimal location of the capacitor banks in shunt is looked for. The type of bank is determined based of the demand, as well as the number of steps. The results of the analysis in feeders of the network of the central area are shown. [Spanish] Se presenta una metodologia para determinar la localizacion optima de los bancos de capacitores en derivacion en redes de distribucion.

Su desarrollo en una hoja de calculo permite el analisis de numerosas alternativas de manera facil. El metodo se basa en que la estructura de los alimentadores de distribucion es, por lo general, de tipo radial, con lo cual, y por medio de un proceso iterativo, se busca la localizacion optima de los bancos de capacitores en derivacion. Se determina el tipo de banco en funcion de la demanda, asi como el numero de pasos. Se muestran resultados del analisis en alimentadores de la red del area central.

    Inflow performance relationships developed for petroleum and geothermal reservoirs are presented. Four of them were selected to be used in this work. Such relationships were developed considering features of a typical geothermal system. The performance of the selected relationships was assessed using data from production tests in several wells of different fields. A methodology is presented to determine the value of the maximum flow (W{sub max}) from the inflow relationships; its application is demonstrated using the data of the 10 production tests. It was found that the calculated value of W{sub max} under stabilization conditions may be related to the reservoir response. In general, there is a good agreement between the calculated values of W{sub max} from the different methods. The differences in the W{sub max} values vary within 10%. It was found that the stability in the calculated values of W{sub max} as a response of the reservoir is a function of the flow magnitude. So, the wells with flow greater than 200 t/h reach the stability of W{sub max} at openings 50% less of their total capacity. [Spanish] Se presentan las relaciones del comportamiento de influjo desarrolladas para yacimientos petroleros y geotermicos. Se seleccionaron cuatro de ellas para usar en este trabajo. Tales relaciones fueron desarrolladas considerando condiciones de un sistema geotermico tipico. Se analizo el comportamiento de las relaciones escogidas utilizando datos de pruebas de produccion de varios pozos de diferentes campos. Se presenta una metodologia para determinar el valor del flujo maximo (W{sub max}) a partir de las relaciones de influjo; se demuestra su aplicabilidad usando los datos de diez pruebas de produccion. Se encontro que el valor de W{sub max} calculado bajo condiciones de estabilizacion se puede relacionar con la respuesta del yacimiento. En general se encuentra buena concordancia entre los valores calculados de W{sub max} usando los diferentes metodos. Las diferencias en los valores de W{sub max} varian dentro de 10%. Se encontro que la estabilidad en los valores calculados de W{sub max} como una respuesta del yacimiento es funcion de la magnitud del flujo. Asi para pozos con flujos mayores de 200t/h, la estabilidad en los valores de W{sub max} se alcanza a aperturas menores del 50% de su capacidad total.

    Kits of 99{sup m}Tc radiopharmaceuticals are used in nuclear medicine for diagnosis of different diseases. Sn (II) is one of the essential components in their formulations, which is used for reduction 99{sup m}Tc-pertechnetate in cold kits for on-site preparation 99{sup m}Tc-pertechnetate radiopharmaceuticals. Usually, these cold kits contain different additives (complexing agents, antioxidants, buffers, etc.) and the amount of Sn (II) varies from kit to kit. The determination of Sn in these products is essential in assessing their quality. We report here the development of a new polarographic method for the determination of Sn (II) and total Sn in representative radiopharmaceuticals kits (for the content of Sn and chemical composition) produced at the Center of Isotopes of Cuba (CENTIS). These methods were validated by analysis of variance and recovery techniques. From the results of the validation, the characteristic functions of uncertainties and fits are considered for the established methods, which give the necessary evidences to demonstrate the usefulness of these methods according to the current trends in Analytical Chemistry. This work provides practical results of great importance for CENTIS. After the speciation of Sn in the MAG3 radiopharmaceuticals kit is inferred that the production process is affected by uncontrolled factors that influence in the product stability, which demonstrates the necessity for analytical tools for the characterization of products and processes.

    By means of Monte Carlo calculations it was determined the response of a scintillator of NaI (Tl) of 7.62 {phi} x 7.62 cm to monoenergetic gamma rays of 0.2 to 3.5 MeV. The response allows to determine the spectra of height of pulses of the monoenergetic photons. This type of calculations was also carried out for photons emitted by sources of Cs-137, Co-60, Na-22, Na-24 and {sup 239} PuBe, with the purpose of reproducing the gamma spectra obtained with this type of detecting. In the calculations the detector was modelled as a NaI cylinder with Al cover and the base of lucite; due to the absence of reliable information on the quantity of thallium in the calculations this information was omitted: for photons whose energy is greater to 1.022 MeV the presence of the gamma peak of the simple escape and twice is observed. The source was modelled as punctual and was located to 5 cm along the axial axis of the detector. To verify the calculations its were carried out measurements with a spectrometer with a scintillator of 7.62 {phi} x 7.62 cm. In the measured spectra the sum peak is observed, while in those calculated it doesn't appear; because the simultaneous detection of photons of different energy doesn't happen each photon since, in single form, it is followed until its complete absorption in the scintillator or when it escapes from the volume of the detector. To reproduce the sum peak and to obtain height spectra of pulses similar to those measured, the sum photons were introduced in the calculations. With the purpose of that Monte Carlo calculation it reproduces the scattering around the photopeak it was used a gaussian function in each photopeak whose characteristics were obtained starting from the experimental data. The calculation of the response of a scintillator allows to establish the capacity of the measurement of the gamma radiation as well as to distinguish the real events of those that appear by the limitations of the detection process.

    In this work the evolution is described that undergoes the factor of damage in a well during its productive stage, which is identifiable from the diminution in the characteristics of its production. It is mentioned that during the productive stage of wells, its declination is, in many occasions, synonymous of the damage presence. Traditionally, the damage effect is determined from the equations for analysis of the transitory tests of pressure. Nevertheless, the execution of this type of tests requires relatively long periods of time to obtain the stabilization of the well and of significant costs. By the previous facts the development of techniques to determine the damage from production tests was initiated. In this article is presented the curve-type of geothermal inflow affected by the damage, from which the value of this one in a geothermal well for the time in which its test of production is realized can be determined. A methodology is proposed to determine the damage effect in the well using the proposed curve-type and its applicability with examples of test measurements of well discharge is demonstrated in Mexican geothermal fields. From the conducted analyses it is found that the numerical value of the damage determined in selected wells increases based on the time of exploitation, which indicates a deterioration of its productive characteristics. The previous statements aid to constitute a technical endorsement for the decision making, on the pertinent actions that can be executed in the well. [Spanish] En este trabajo se describe la evolucion que sufre el factor de dano en un pozo durante su etapa productiva, el cual es identificable a partir de la disminucion en las caracteristicas de su produccion. Se menciona que durante la etapa productiva de los pozos, su declinacion es, en muchas ocasiones, sinonimo de la presencia de dano. Tradicionalmente, el efecto de dano se determina a partir de las ecuaciones para analisis de las pruebas transitorias de presion. Sin embargo, la ejecucion de este tipo de pruebas requiere de periodos relativamente largos de tiempo para lograr la estabilizacion del pozo y de costos significativos. Por lo anterior se empezaron a desarrollar tecnicas para determinar el dano a partir de pruebas de produccion. En este articulo se presenta la curva-tipo de influjo geotermico afectada por dano, a partir de la cual se puede determinar el valor de este en un pozo geotermico para el tiempo en que se realiza su prueba de produccion. Se propone la metodologia para determinar el efecto de dano en el pozo usando la curva-tipo propuesta y se demuestra su aplicabilidad con ejemplos de mediciones de pruebas de descarga en pozos de campos geotermicos mexicanos. De los analisis efectuados se encuentra que el valor numerico del dano determinado en los pozos seleccionados aumenta en funcion del tiempo de explotacion, lo cual indica un deterioro en sus caracteristicas productivas. Lo anterior ayuda a conformar un respaldo tecnico para la toma de decisiones, sobre las acciones pertinentes que pueden ejecutar en el pozo.

    The desalination of seawater is being an important solution to satisfy the demands of drinking water to population's centers that have hydric resources very limited, like it is the case of some Arab countries and arid regions of the planet, in where they have settled desalination plants that use as energy source to those fossil fuels or nuclear energy plants. Taking into account that the desalination of seawater is a process that consumes a lot of thermal and/or electric energy, it is necessary to quantify the costs of the supply and that of the desalination plant for different options and technologies, looking for this way the but appropriate for the specific conditions of the region where it has planned the desalination of seawater. In this report the three technologies but promising for the desalination are described and by means of the DEEP code the costs of production of water and energy are evaluated, using as thermal source different types of power nuclear reactors. It was obtained according to DEEP that the costs of the electricity generation for the considered reactors are around 40 USD/MWh. With these costs of electric power generation and using the DEEP code is obtained that the costs of production of drinking water are around 1 USD/m{sup 3}. (Author)

    This work describes the development of an expert system designed to control the cold fissuration phenomenon caused by H{sup 2} on welded joints of carbonated, C-Mn and light alloy steels, obtained through fusion welding (manual electric arc, MIG/MAG, TIG and submerged arc). This system, implemented in PROLOG language, allows a quick and simple calculation of preheating temperatures. The aim of this system, which does not require programming knowledge to be updated, is to help welding engineers to design welding procedures which are safe as regards to the joint resistance to cold fissuration. Being an expert system, the user has the opportunity to obtain interactive explanations about the way any conclusions are obtained, as well as information about the concepts and parameters on which the reasoning is based.(Author)

    On this work the results of the dosimetric measurements are presented around an ovoid of 2 cm diameter. The measurements were carried out using a water mannequin, an ovoid, a radiation gamma source of {sup 192}Ir and thermoluminescent dosemeters. The dosimetry was realized in the direction of the rectum and bladder. To know the effect of the shielding of the devices type Manchester in the dose, the thermoluminescent dosemeters were irradiated to a radiation gamma source of {sup 192}Ir contained in the Gamma med Plus equipment. The planning was realized normalizing the calculation to 2.5 cm from the applicator center on the transverse plane (2.5, 0, 0). The results show that the dose distribution for an ovoid without shielding is more uniform in the transversal plane to the source axis. The results were compared with the calculated results by means of the planning system BrachyVision. While the absorbed dose distribution around an ovoid with shielding is completely anisotropic. This anisotropic is due to the shielding. (Author)

    With the purpose of promoting the use of the radiations for the plant breeding of pseudo cereals, it was determined a simple and economic method that allows the quick selection of radiation dose that induce in the vegetable organisms the changes wanted. For it it was work with quinua seeds (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) an Andean pseudo cereal that, due to their nutritious and physiologic characteristics it is considered by the FAO like one of the foods of the future and for the NASA like an organism that is good to remove the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and at the same time, to generate food, oxygen and water for the crew during the space missions of long duration and that it has already improved by means of the radiation application. The proposed method consists on the evaluation, of the embryonic structures (radicule, hypocotyl and cotyledons) in the irradiated seeds as well as of the development of root, primary shaft and true leaves in the plants. The changes in the growth, form, number and color of the structures as well as the time of appearance of each one, allow to predict the morphological changes and inclusive some physiologic ones that will have the mature organisms, so that in only three weeks it is possible to select the doses more appropriate.

    Prediction of mechanical behavior of hot rolled steels is an important aspect during industrial processing. The rolling stress needed to the process were estimated using three methods, the first of which is related to the Sellars's model that takes into account the friction coefficient and the yield stress. The second method estimates the rolling stress as the average stress obtained during the tensile tests. The third method, estimates the rolling stress from the data of power consumed by the rolling equipment. This methodology was applied in this study to a carbon steel. The conclusion of the work is that results obtained by Sellars's and consumed power, are coincident. The method based on the average tensile stress predicts stresses lower than those obtained with other two methods. (Author) 26 refs.

    We have used three different techniques for permeability prediction from porosity data in well PX12 at El Lago de Maracaibo. One of these techniques is statistical and is based in Fuzzy Logic. Another has been developed by H. Pape et al, based in Fractal Theory and the Kozeny-Carman equations, and the other one is an empirical model obtained in 1949 by Tixier. We have used 100% of the permeability-porosity data to obtain the predictor equations in each case. We have found bet- ter results with the statistical approach. The results obtained from the fractal model and the Tixier equations are similar in this case. We have also taken randomly 25% of the data to obtain the pre- dictor equations. In this case the best results are those obtained with fractal theory.

    The success of the measurement and the evaluation of the internal exposure are highly dependent of the effective capacities for the radiation measurement in biological samples (mainly urine and the feces). Usually, during the samples bioassay of human urine, a pre-concentration and purification of the radionuclides is carried out previously to the quantitative analysis. These stages, as the analysis time are the main source of uncertainty in the measurement process. In the uranium case, this is not necessary when are used mass spectrometry techniques, in particular, Mass Spectrometry of Magnetic Sector with Inductively Coupled Plasma (Icp-SFMS). This work presents the results obtained for the uranium analysis in samples of human urine during the participation in the inter-comparison exercises of the Association pour la Promotion de Controle de Qualite des Analyses de Biologie Medicale en Radiotoxicologie (PROCORAD) in the period 2010 and 2011. The analyses were realized directly in the diluted urine samples (dilution factor 1:20) in 5% of HNO{sub 3}. The obtained results, were normalized to the total urine sample (V = 0.5 L), these values coincide with the waited reference values of uranium in the urine sample. Additionally, were calculated the detection limits of {sup 235}U= 0.049 x 10{sup -3} μg L{sup -1} and {sup 238}U= 7.37 x 10{sup -3} μg L{sup -1}. (author)

    Full Text Available El objetivo del proyecto es determinar las propiedades físico-mecánicas de tres variedades de papa (criolla, pastusa y capiro, necesarias para el diseño y operación de maquinaria para siembra, cosecha, postcosecha y para el adecuado almacenamiento del producto. Se midieron propiedades físicas como: dimensiones axiales, esfericidad, redondez, ángulo de reposo, densidad real, densidad aparente y porosidad. Igualmente se determinaron propiedades mecánicas tales como: resistencia a la compresión, al corte, al punzonamiento y coeficiente de fricción. Se tomaron como factores de variación para cada variedad, el tamaño y el tiempo de toma de las observaciones (cada 15 días durante 90 días, utilizando el método por bloques completamente aleatorios. Los datos fueron sometidos a un análisis estadístico de varianzas, utilizando el método Duncan. Las propiedades físicas variaron de manera similar, de tal manera que la esfericidad y la redondez aumentava a medida que el tamaño disminuye. La porosidad es superior al 48% y el ángulo de reposo es el característico de formas aproximadamente esféricas para las tres variedades analizadas. La principal influencia sobre la variabilidad en las propiedades mecánicas es el cambio en el contenido de humedad; también se detectó una pérdida de turgencia con el paso del tiempo que genera mayor elasticidad en el tubérculo, lo cual le permite soportar mayores cargas. La variedad Criolla presenta una resistencia entre tres y cinco veces mayor al corte, punzonamiento y compresión, con relación a las variedades Capiro y Pastusa.The aim of this work is to determine the physical and mechanical properties of three varieties of potatoes (Criolla, Pastusa and Capiro, in order to use them in the design and management of sowing, harvest and postharvest machines and adopt storage time of potato. Some of the physical properties like: axial dimensions, sphericity, roundness, repose angle, apparent density, real density and porosity were measured, as well as the mechanical properties like: compression, punction and cut strength and friction coefficient. The factor of variation such as size and the sampling time (every 15 days during 3 months were involved for each variety of potato using a completely random block design. The data were analyzed statistically through the analysis of variance by the Duncan´s method. The physical properties varied in similar way, the sphericity and roundness increased when the size reduced. The porosity is higher than 48% while the repose angle obtained is characteristic of approximately spherical shapes for three analyzed varieties. The principal influence over the variability in the mechanical properties is the change in the moisture content, besides, a turgency loss was observed during the storage time that provides more elasticity in the tuber which permit the tuber to bear higher loads. The Criolla variety showed a strength between three to five times more than Capiro and Pastusa varieties in cut, punction and compression test.

    Full Text Available Venezuela cuenta con grandes extensiones de suelos y climas propicios para el desarrollo de la ganadería, estas condiciones han permitido un incremento de la producción lechera en los últimos años. La Comisión Venezolana de Normas Industriales (COVENIN, en su norma 798: 1994 (1 contempla los requisitos físico-químicos y microbiológicos para la leche pasteurizada, siendo los valores para cloruros de 0.07 a 0.11 g % y para el punto crioscópico de -0.555 a -0.540 º C. Resultados preliminares realizados por Medina (1998 (2 sobre estos parámetros en muestras de leche cruda consumidas en el Estado Mérida mostraron adulteración por aguado y valores de cloruros por encima de la norma. El objetivo de esta investigación fue la determinación del punto crioscópico y del % de cloruros en leche pasteurizada y su relación. Se analizaron tres marcas comerciales de leche pasteurizada, codificadas como A, B y C; recolectadas semanalmente en los depósitos de las empresas lácteas de la ciudad de Mérida, por un período de 3 meses y llevadas al laboratorio bajo refrigeración para sus respectivos análisis. Para la determinación del punto crioscópico se utilizó el método oficial de la AOAC, mediante el crioscopio Advanced, la determinación de cloruros se realizó mediante el método conductimétrico, utilizando el Corning 920. Covenin 369:1982. Los resultados obtenidos fueron tratados estadísticamente empleando la media, la desviación Standard, el rango de variación como indicadores de centramiento y dispersión. El análisis de significancia estadística se realizó mediante un análisis de varianza para los dos parámetros, así como la t student. De los resultados obtenidos pudimos concluir, que hay valores de crioscopia que están fuera de la norma y los cloruros mostraron una tendencia hacia el límite superior, inclusive algunos valores por encima de 0.11g %. La correlación simple entre la crioscopía y los cloruros demostró una fuerte asociación entre las dos variables en la muestra C, una moderada asociación en las muestras A y una débil asociación en la muestra B.Abstract Venezuela has great extensions of land and soils with favourable climate for the breed of cattle, which has permitted an incremental production of milk through time. The Venezuelan Commission of Industrial Regulatory Normative (COVENIN, in its 798, states that the physical-chemical and microbiological requisites of the pasteurized whole milk for chlorides are values between 0.07 a 0.11 g % and for the cryoscopic point between -0.555 to -0.540 º C. Preliminary results from Medina (1998 (2 based on this parameters determined in samples of crude whole milk consumed in the state of Mérida, revealed adulteration by water dilution and values of chlorides greater than it is permitted by the Venezuelan Commission of Industrial Regulatory Normative (COVENIN. The objective of this investigation was the determination of the cryoscopic point and the % of chlorides in whole pasteurized milk and its relation. Three commercial trademarks of whole pasteurized milk were analyzed and codified as A, B and C. The samples were recollected weekly from the respective diary industries for a period of three months and transported to the laboratory refrigerated. For the determination of the cryoscopic point the official method of the AOAC was utilized, using the trademark Advanced cryoscopy. The determination of chlorides was conducted by the conductimetric method, utilizing a Corning 920 (COVENIN 369: 1982. The results obtained were treated statistically, applying the mean, the standard deviation and the variation range as indicators of centration and dispersion. The analysis of the statistical significance was done by means of the variance range for the two parameters determined and the student “t” was also applied. We concluded by the results, that we found values of cryoscopic point that are beyond the normative values and that the chlorides values showed a tendency to the superior limit and some of them were greater than 0.11g

    For determining ionium ({sup 2}30Th) in minerals and uranium processing wastes by precipitation with fluorhidric acid, using lanthanum as carrier, and selective extraction with tenoytrifluoroacetone (TTA) followed by radiometric determination of the isolated nuclide, it is necessary the use of a tracer since the chemical yield of the separation ranges between wide limits. In this paper, the use of the beta-emitter {sup 2}34Th as the most convenient tracer is discussed. Equations are derived for correcting for counting errors introduced by other thorium isotopes which are present either in the sample or in the tracer, as well as for calculating the chemical yield of the separation. These equations have been experimentally checked by ionium determinations carried out with different types of samples. (Author) 18 refs.

    The solubility problems raised by some components of the polymeric residue of irradiated polyphenolic coolants, which make it necessary to operate with very small samples, have been solved by means of a differential cryoscopic technique using a thermoelectric thermometer (thermal) as sensitive element. The method is based on the direct measurement of the difference between the freezing points of the investigated solution and of a reference solution whose concentration may be changed at will. The change of {delta} V (mV) versus c(molal) is linear, the equivalent point being determined either analytically or graphically depending on the required accuracy. The method has been tested by measurements on pure polyphenyls, using diphenyl ether as solvent. It has been also applied to the main prospective coolants for the DON reactor. Working with 10{sup 2} molal solutions the accuracy is better than {+-} 2 per cent. (Author) 2 refs.

    Popocatepetl volcano is a high-risk active volcano in Central Mexico where the highest population density in the country is settled. Radon in the soil and groundwater together with water chemistry from samples of nearby springs is analysed as a function of the 2002-2003 volcanic activity. Soil radon indicated fluctuations related both the meteorological parameters and sporadic explosive events. Groundwater radon showed essentially differences in concentration due to the specific characteristics of the studied springs. Water chemistry showed stability along the monitoring period indicating also differences between springs. No anthropogenic pollution from volatile organic compounds was observed. (Author)

    To identify a compound by means of diffraction it is required to obtain it spectrum or diffractogram that it is not more than a graphic I/I{sub o} vs. 2 {theta}. Since this analysis type is carried out on samples of glasses, it is expected that when impacting the radiation on the sample and to vary the angles {theta} and 2 {theta}, and when being completed the Bragg law, constructive interference it exists among all the radiation beams that emerge of the sample and take place the diffraction. In this work the diffractogram is identified by means of a graph equipment (x,t) that directly obtains the graphic I/I{sub o} vs. 2 {theta} and in this it has to be carried out angular measurement of the present peaks and later on with the data 2 {theta}{sub i} it was proceeds to compare with the totally identified patterns as the contents in the Powder Diffraction File of the Joint Committee on Powder Diffraction Standards (JCPDS).

    The use of less invasive procedures, lower risk and quick recovery as cardiac intervention have proven to be an efficient alternative to reestablish the correct bloodstream of the patient. In this case the patient is subjected to values of absorbed dose above to which is subjected in a study with X-rays for medical diagnosis, and this can cause radiation injuries to the skin. The target organ, in this case can be exposed to doses of 2 Gy above. Different methods to estimate the dose were use, physical by Radiochromic film, as biological by dicentric analysis. Both methods provided additional information demonstrating thus the risk in the target organ and the patient. The most reliable biological indicator of exposure to ionizing radiation is the study of chromosomal aberrations, specifically dicentric in human lymphocytes. This test allowed establishing the exposure dose depending of the damage. (Author)

    The stability constants of La{sup 3+}, Pr{sup 3+}, Eu{sup 3+}, Er{sup 3+} and Lu{sup 3+} chloride complexes were determined in perchloric acid media using a liquid-liquid extraction method. The dinonyl napthalene sulfonic acid in n-heptane was used as extractant. The lanthanide (Ln) concentrations were measured by a radiochemical (Eu and Lu) and a spectrophotometric (La, Pr, and Er) methods. In the last method, xylenol orange was used for the determinations at ph 6. The stability constants of lanthanum, praseodymium, erbium and lutetium chloride complexes were determined in 2, 3 and 4 M ionic strength and europium in 1, 2 and 3 M, at 303 K. The fitting of experimental data to the equations for the calculation of the stability constants, was carry out considering both one chemical species (LnCl{sup 2+}) or two chemical species (LnCl{sup 2+} and LnCl{sub 2}{sup +}). The Specific Ion Interaction Theory was applied to the values of log {beta}{sup I}{sub Ln},{sub Cl} and the first stability constants at zero ionic strength were calculated by extrapolation. The same theory could not be applied to the log {beta}{sup I}{sub Ln},{sub 2Cl}, due to its low abundance and the values determined for the stability constants were similar. The distribution diagrams of the chemical species were obtained using the program MEDUSA and considering log {beta}{sup I}{sub Ln},{sub CI}, log {beta}{sup I}{sub Ln},{sub 2CI} values obtained in this work and the hydrolysis constants taken from the literature. The lanthanide chloride complexes are present in solution at specific conditions of ionic strength, concentration and in the absence of hydrolysis. The log {beta}{sup I}{sub Ln},{sub Cl} data were related to the charge density and the corresponding equations were obtained. These equations could be used to determine the stability constants along the lanthanide series. (Author)

    A method has been developed to determine activities of Ra-226, natural uranium and natural thorium by gamma-ray spectrometry. The measurement system has been calibrated using standards specially prepared at the laboratory. It is necessary to assume secular equilibrium in the samples, between Ra-226 and Th-232 and its daughters nuclides, and between U-238 and its immediate daughter Th-234, as the photo peaks measured are those of the daughters. The results obtained indicate that this method can of ter replace the radiochemical techniques used to measure activities in this type of sample. The method has been successfully used to determine these natural isotopes in samples from uranium mills. (Author) 9 refs.

    The generation of radioactive residuals in nuclear centrals as CNA I (Atucha I Nuclear Central) and CNE (Embalse Nuclear Central) makes that the measurement of those radionuclides has been a previous stage to the waste management. A method used in those nuclear centrals it is the gamma spectrometry with HPGe detectors, previous to the immobilization of the residual in a cemented matrix, with this the contact with the external agents and its possible dispersion to the atmosphere in the short term is avoided. The ARN (Nuclear Regulatory Authority) of Argentina it carries out periodically intercomparisons and evaluations of the measurement and procedures systems used in the nuclear power stations for the correct measurement and determination of activity of radioactive residuals by gamma spectrometry. In this work an independent method of measurement is exposed to the nuclear power stations. To determine the activity of the residuals by gamma spectrometry deposited in drums, it is required of the precise knowledge of the efficiency curve for such geometry and matrix. Due to the RNA doesn't have a pattern of these characteristics, a mathematical model has been used to obtain this efficiency curve. For it, it is necessary to determine previously: 1) the geometric efficiency or solid angle sustained by the source-detector system (drum-detector) applying a mathematical model described in this work. 2) To estimate the auto-attenuation factor that present the photons in the cemented matrix, these calculations are carried out with a simple equation and its are verified with the Micro Shield 6.10 program. The container commonly used by these nuclear power stations its are drums for 220 liters constructed with SAE 1010 steel and with a thickness of 0.127 cm, with an approximate weight 7.73 Kg., internal diameter of 57.1 cm, and height: 87 cm. The results obtained until the moment register a discrepancy from 5 to 10% with relationship to the measurements carried out by the nuclear power stations. (Author)

    The coast of the Mexican Pacific is one of the seismic areas more active of the world due to the subduction of the badges of Coconuts and Rivera under the badge of North America. The earthquakes that happen in this part of Mexico they are of great magnitude and they affect to the central plateau of the country where finds the biggest population density. On the other hand the coast of the Gulf of Mexico presents one relatively low seismic activity. It is in this region where it is the nuclear plant of Laguna Verde (PNLV) and the studies of seismicity of the area should be carried out for questions of nuclear security. One carries out a study of fluctuations of the concentration of the radon in floor and it dilutes underground in the mentioned areas using accustomed to detectors of nuclear appearances (LR-115). Possibly they were also used detecting automatic (Clipperton sounds out). In some cases it was analysed the gamma radiation in soil using thermoluminescent dosemeters (CaSO{sub 4}: Dy + Ptfe). The mineralogical composition of rock samples was obtained, by means of technical conventional and Electron scanning microscopy and an X-ray diffractometer. The study one carries out along the coast of Guerrero, from Guacamayas, Mich. until Marquelia, Gro., of 1993 at 1998 and in the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, in the PNLV and their surroundings, of 1994 at 1996. The fluctuations of the radon concentration and of the gamma radiation, were analysed in function of the local seismic activity, the meteorological parameters and those characteristic geologic. In the area of the PNLV, the results showed that in general the averages of those value of the radon concentration, as much in floor as in water, they were low. A station located in a flaw area (New Ranch) the one that I present the values was but high of radon concentration, corresponding those but first floor to the PNLV. The seismic activity during the one period of sampling was sporadic and of low intensity and alone one could observe that the flaw area the one that had values bigger than the radon concentration was. Some variations of the concentration of the radon could be correlated with the meteorological parameters and those characteristic geologic. The anomalies of the values of the concentration of the radon were presented in general during the rainy season. In the coast of the Pacific one observes an intense seismic activity (M>4) in the period of sampling. The concentration of the radon in floor measured in long periods of time didn't respond with picks one to one to the local earthquakes, but it showed a global increase in an area of high seismic activity. The variations of the radon concentration and of the radiation gamma they showed a strong correlation among if. The differences in the composition of the rocks were reflected in you differ so much in the radon emanation like in the levels of radiation gamma in the area studied. The fluctuations of the concentration of the radon in floor showed occasionally dependence with the meteorological parameters, the same as in the area of the Gulf, the maximum values were obtained mainly in the rainy season.

    The agricultural regions lately, they have suffered a severe contamination for the big ones quantities of chemical fertilizers and of pesticides applied to improve their production and quality, increasing these in areas with temperatures but you lower that the average. For the importance of the physicochemical processes that they are made in the waters to settle down surface near to agricultural fields, the physicochemical characteristics were analysed of these waters to determine the contributions that they carry out the phosphate fertilizers that are carried by the escorrentia toward the borders and to make a pursuit of their variability during an agricultural cycle, in times of the summertime and of rains, as well as to observe the effect of the depth in these physicochemical properties. Its were sampling three borders and a spring that it served of white, all them located in the suburbs of the Xinantecatl (Nevado de Toluca), municipality of Zinacantepec, State of Mexico, area with the temperatures but drops registered in the region. They were carried out samplings in the first days of the months of April, July and November. The points of those sampled borders were the influent, the effluent and 3 different depths (lm, 3m and 5m). where was not possible sampling all the points, its were sampling only the one influent and the effluent. The selected physicochemical parameters were the temperature, the pH, the conductivity electric and the one oxygenates dissolved This determination in situ you carries out with a team portable of type Check-Mate, of interchangeable electrodes. The certain anions they were phosphates, nitrates, sulfates and bicarbonates; the measurement of the concentration of anions, one carries out for ultraviolet-visible light spectroscopy and titration. The cations analysed they were sodium, potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium. The cations concentration was determined by atomic absorption spectroscopy. The determination of the uranium concentration it was made by means of neutron activation analysis. The physicochemical parameters diminished of value in the temporary analysis, as long as those anions and the cations didn't show a behavior defined in this same analysis, while in the analysis in depth these parameters presented minimum changes. In the modelling one for computer packages, the results of the speciation analysis chemistry, by means of the Medusa program, they revealed that the species of uranium in solution but abundant they were phosphate uranyl monoacid, tris uranyl carbonate and bis uranyl carbonate and, in smaller proportion, the species of aqueous uranyl hydroxide. The characterization of waters for the program GWW gave as a result that the facies but representative it was the bicarbonate magnesia. In the study of the quality of the one it dilutes with ends of agricultural watering, they were classified as capable for this purpose. The analysis statistical one carries out with base in the correlation coefficient whose value among the uranium and the match is moderated in three sampling points. (Author)

In order to estimate the critical loads, processes such as weathering rate of the parent material, atmospheric deposition, critical alkalinity leaching rate and nutrients absorbed by the vegetation have been considered. In general the forest soils present high critical load values for acidity and sulphur. The more sensitive zones are found in the north of the Sierra of Guadarrama. Independent of the applied methods, the results are associated to the types of soils where Leptosols have the lowest. Cambisoles and Regosoles intermediate and luvisoles the most elevated values.

    This work was supported, on the one hand, in a part of the project ORAMED which consisted of a design of a TLD dosimeter for measurements of Hp (3) in areas close to the lens, for interventional radiology physicians. On the other hand, Berhens work proposes using calibrated TLDs Hp (0.07) and Hp (10) to estimate Hp (3) crystal. This resulted in dosimeters calibrated using Hp (10) slab, and mount them on glasses, to estimate the dose to the lens of the technical staff of the Service PET / CT. The value obtained 29mSv/year of Lens Dose Equivalent exceeds the recommended limit. We also demonstrate that, under the current working conditions, the values of Hp (3) reported from whole body dosimeter does not represent faithfully the lens dose.

    The extended power up-rate (EPU) in a nuclear power plant cause various problems in BWR components also in the steam system. This due to increased steam flow generated in the reactor and is conveyed to the turbine by the four main steam lines (MSL). One of the most serious problems is the generation of acoustic pressure loads in the metal structure of the steam dryer which eventually leads to fatigue failure and even the appearance of cracks, and in turn it causes loose parts that are entrained by the steam and transported in the MSL. This problem is due to the fluctuation of load acoustics caused by the union of the safety or relief valves (SRV) with the MSL, spreading through these to reach the reactor pressure vessel (RPV) where the effect of resonance of the acoustic wave is amplified and impacts directly in the supporting structure of the steam dryer, skirt and the panels where the mixture liquid-steam is dried, by centrifugation effect and runoff of liquid water. Efforts in the steam dryer operating conditions of EPU for two cases will be analyzed in this work, the first is before the installation of Acoustic Side Branch (ASB), and in the second case we consider the installation of said ASB in the standpipes of SRV. The analysis was performed with numerical experiments on a platform for computational fluid dynamics with virtual geometries previously designed based on the actual components of the reactor and steam system. The model to study is delimited by the top of the RPV, the steam dryer and a section of each of the four MSL with ten standpipes of SRV. With the obtained data and considering the mechanical-structural properties of the steam dryer material, we can evaluate the mechanical resistance to impacts by acoustic pressure load and its possible deformation or cracking.

    The present investigation project pretends toward analyze the possibility of pumping water using Aeolian energy from the Soto la Marina River to the Contadero Lagoon, through an eight kilometers channel. In order to obtain this objective it is necessary to analyze diverse configurations for Aeolian energy converters as well as to determine the Aeolian potential of the site. An isolated Aeolian energy pumping system will be analyzed, that is to say, without interconnection with the electric power network and another interconnected with this network. In addition, with the installation of meteorological monitoring stations a partial evaluation of the Aeolian resource in the zone will be made. This research project was born as a result of an invitation of the Dr. Eric Gustafson, President of Conservation Mexico A.C. and of Ing. Virgilio Garza, President of the Vigia Group, to participate in a project called Laguna Flamingo. Such project deals with the restoration of a habitat of aquatic birds in the Contadero Lagoon, property of Ing. Virgilio Garza in Soto la Marina, Tamaulipas, Mexico.

    For the Serpent code was developed the three-dimensional model corresponding to the nuclear subcritical assembly (S A) Chicago 9000 of the Escuela Superior de Fisica y Matematicas del Instituto Politecnico Nacional (ESFM-IPN). The model includes: a) the core, formed by 312 aluminum pipes that contain 5 nuclear fuel rods (natural uranium in metallic form), b) the multi-perforated plates where they penetrate the inferior part of each pipe to be able to remain in vertical form, c) water, acting as moderator and reflector, and d) the recipient lodging to the core. The pipes arrangement is hexagonal although the transversal section of the recipient that lodges to the core is circular. The entrance file for the Serpent code was generated with the data provided by the manual of the S A use about the composition and density of the fuel rods and others obtained in direct form of the rods, as the interior and external diameter, mass and height. Of the obtained physical parameters, those more approached to that reported in the manual of the subcritical assembly are the effective multiplication factor and the reproduction factor η. The differences can be because the description of the fuel rods provided by the manual of the S A use do not correspond those that are physically in the S A core. This difference consists on the presence of a circular central channel of 1.245 diameter centimeters in each fuel rod. The fuel rods reported in the mentioned manual do not have that channel. Although the obtained results are encouraging, we want to continue improving the model to incorporate in this the detectors, defined this way by the Serpent code, which could determine the existent neutrons flux in diverse points of interest like the axial or radial aligned points and to compare these with those that are obtained in an experimental way when a generating neutrons source (Pu-Be) is introduced. Added to this effort the cross sections for each unitary cell will be determined, so that these are used in a transport code developed in the ESFM-IPN. (Author)

    The level of water from the core provides relevant information of the neutronic and thermal hydraulic of the reactor as the power, k EFF and cooling capacity. In fact, this level monitoring can be used for prediction of LOCA and reduction of cooling that can cause damage to the core. There are several teams that measure a variety of parameters of the reactor, as opposed to the level of the water of the core. However, the detectors 'excore' measure fast neutrons which escape from the core and there are studies that demonstrate the existence of a relationship between them and the water level of the kernel due to the water shield. Therefore, a methodology has been developed to determine this relationship, using the Monte Carlo method using the MCNP code and apply variance reduction techniques based on the attached flow that is obtained using the method of discrete ordinates using code TORT.

    Due to the control or safety bars in a nuclear reactor are constituted by strongly absorbent materials, the Diffusion Theory like tool for the calculation of bar values is not directly applicable, should it use the Transport Theory. However the speed and economy of the Diffusion codes for the reactors calculation, those make attractiveness and by this reason its are used in the determination of characteristic parameters and even in the determination of bar values, not without before to make some theoretical developments that allow to make applicable this theory. The application of the Diffusion Theory in strongly absorbent media is based on the use of some effective cross sections distinct from the real ones obtained when imposing the reason that among the flow and it gradient in the external surface of such media (control element in general, bar type or flagstone) be similar to the one obtained using Transport Theory in all the control region (multiplicative and absorbent media) with those real cross sections. The effective cross sections were obtained of the Leopard-NUMICE cell code which has incorporate the respective calculation theory of effective cross sections. Later these constants its were used in the bidimensional diffusion code Exterminator-II, simulating in it, the distribution of safety or control bars. From the cell code its were also obtained the respective constants of the homogeneous fuel cell. The results as soon as those obtained bar values of the diffusion code, its were compared with some experimental results obtained in the R{phi} Swedish reactor of natural uranium and heavy water. In this work an analysis of the bar value of one of them, trying to determine the applicability of the method is made. (Author)

    A modification of the simple filtration technique used for the detection and enumeration of fecal bacteriophages from pre-treated and treated drinking water is described. The filters and equipments used are similar to those employed for the classical bacterial indicator analysis, and the titer of bacteriophages may be recorded in only 6 hours. The proposed modification is based on the elimination of the bacterial decontamination of the water sample by use the selective medium mFC agar; and, in addition, an optimal visualization of the lysis plaques is obtained in this medium, which avoid the use of specific stains like triphenyl tetrazolium chloride (TTC). On the other hand, the proposed modification of the technique presents a high accuracy, since bacteriophage titers of<10 pfu/100 ml of water are detected. (Author) 46 refs.

    Nuclear waste usually concerns public about the impact on public health and the environment. In Mexico, such interest exists, particularly in the Temascalapa Municipality, Mexico where a low level waste repository recognized by the IAEA, has been functioning since 1972. Maquixco repository is located at 42 Kilometers northeast of Mexico City. Although the environmental radiological monitoring records have demonstrated negligible impact on the environment, in 1998 an unusual public polemic on radioactive health effects appeared among Temascalapa residents. This paper presents a research performed during 1998 with the participation of the National Nuclear Research Institute of Mexico and the National Autonomous University of Mexico. The research design allowed the involvement of local authorities, as a way of stimulate public participation. The research was performed in nine locations of the Temascalapa Municipality, it was focused on public polemics, associated to Maquixco repository as well as trying to identify demographic factors that exert influence on public attitudes. There are also presented the results of personal dosimetry analysis performed on a four hundred residents sample of this Municipality. (Author)

    The experimental conditions were standardized for the unicellular in gel electrophoresis technique setting up (EUG) at the Cellular Radiobiology laboratory. Preliminary experiments were realized with human cells and mouse which were exposed to ionizing radiation or hydroxide peroxide (H{sub 2}O{sub 2}) to induce DNA damage and to verify the technique performance. It was analysed the In vivo repairing kinetics of induced damage by gamma radiation in mouse leukocytes which were exposed to {sup 137} Cs source and taking samples of peripheric blood of the tail of each mouse at different exposure times and processing them for EUG. In function of the cells proportion with damage in each time it was determined the existence of fast repairing mechanism at the first 15 minutes followed by a slight increase in the damage and a late repairing stage between 30 and 90 minutes. It was analysed this behavior and the potentiality of this In vivo system. (Author)

The objective of the project is to establish the reference levels of man-made radionuclides in Spanish soils, with respect to which the evaluation of a possible posterior accidental release of radioactive material could be appraised. The activity concentration of the fission products Cs-137 has been determined in 34 soil cores extracted from representative Spanish soils type zones. This publication describes the experimental system employed, its calibration, the particular conditions applied to perform the measurements, as well as the experimental validation of the methodology. The activity profiles and inventories of the radioactive element so obtained are also presented. The estimation of the background Cs-137 reference levels, will provide a basis for later applications as the study of the spatial distribution in the region, the determination of the correlation between the deposited activity and the meteorological conditions, or the calculation of the specific migration parameters of the radioactive elements in Mediterranean conditions.

    An adequate workplace monitoring must be carried out during the decommissioning activities, to ensure the protection of workers involved in these tasks. In addition, a large amount of waste materials are generated during the decommissioning of nuclear facilities. Clearance levels are established by regulatory authorities and are normally quite low. The determination of those activity concentration levels become more difficult when it is necessary to quantify alpha emitters such as uranium, especially when complex matrices are involved. Several methods for uranium determination in samples obtained during the decommissioning of a facility related to the first stage of the nuclear fuel cycle are presented in this work. Measurements were carried out by laboratory techniques. In situ gamma spectrometry was also used to perform measurements on site. A comparison among the different techniques was also done by analysing the results obtained in some practical applications. (Author)

    This paper presents an evaluation of uncertainty associated to analytical measurement of eighteen polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) in ambient air by liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection (HPLC/FD). The study was focused on analyses of PM{sub 1}0, PM{sub 2}.5 and gas phase fractions. Main analytical uncertainty was estimated for eleven polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), four nitro polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nitro-PAHs) and two hydroxy polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (OH-PAHs) based on the analytical determination, reference material analysis and extraction step. Main contributions reached 15-30% and came from extraction process of real ambient samples, being those for nitro- PAHs the highest (20-30%). Range and mean concentration of PAC mass concentrations measured in gas phase and PM{sub 1}0/PM{sub 2}.5 particle fractions during a full year are also presented. Concentrations of OH-PAHs were about 2-4 orders of magnitude lower than their parent PAHs and comparable to those sparsely reported in literature. (Author) 7 refs.

    The present work presents a simplified methodology to quantify the isotopic content of the spent fuel of light water reactors; their application is it specific to the Laguna Verde Nucleo electric Central by means of a balance cycle of 18 months. The methodology is divided in two parts: the first one consists on the development of a model of a simplified cell, for the isotopic quantification of the irradiated fuel. With this model the burnt one is simulated 48,000 MWD/TU of the fuel in the core of the reactor, taking like base one fuel assemble type 10x10 and using a two-dimensional simulator for a fuel cell of a light water reactor (CPM-3). The second part of the methodology is based on the creation from an isotopic decay model through an algorithm in C++ (decay) to evaluate the amount, by decay of the radionuclides, after having been irradiated the fuel until the time in which the reprocessing is made. Finally the method used for the quantification of the kilograms of uranium and obtained plutonium of a normalized quantity (1000 kg) of fuel irradiated in a reactor is presented. These results will allow later on to make analysis of the final disposition of the irradiated fuel. (Author)

    The stability of the uranyl sipped in the zirconium {tau}-hydrogen phosphate in sodic form ({tau}-NaZrP), was carried out characterizing the complexes formed by Laser spectroscopy in the visible region and by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The material was prepared by a new synthesis technique working in nitrogen atmosphere and to low temperatures. The sorption of the uranyl ion was made in acid media with concentrations of 10{sup -4} and 10{sup -5} of uranyl nitrate and with ion forces of 0.1 and 0.5 M of NaClO{sub 4}. The spectra of induced fluorescence with laser (TRLFS) show that the uranyl is fixed in very acid media in three well differentiated species, to pH less acid, the specie of long half life disappears and are only those of short half life. The results of the binding energy obtained by XPS indicate that the binding energy of the uranyl confer it a stable character to the complex formed in the {tau}-NaZP, that makes to this material appropriate to retain to the uranyl in solution to high ion forces and in acid media.

    Helicobacter pylori is the cause of chronic gastritis, duodenal ulcers and stomach cancer. Its natural reservoirs and transmission mechanisms are still little understood. The gastro-oral route-especially vomiting and regurgitation-is one transmission path, especially in young children and babies. It has been found in some patients saliva and dental plaque, which suggests a possible oral-oral contagion route. The discovery of H. Pylori human excrement points to a faecal-oral route as the main transmission pathway via water for human consumption. It is therefore important to develop detection methods such as isolation by culture and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to effectively monitor this pathogen in human drinking water.

    This work presents the measurement of the neutrons spectrum in energies in the central thimble of the reactor TRIGA Mark III to a power of 1 MW in stationary state, with the core in the center of the pool. To achieve this objective, several thin sheets were irradiated (one at the time) in the same position of the core. The activation probes were selected in such a way that covered the energy range (1 x 10{sup -10} to 20 MeV) of the neutrons spectrum in the reactor core, for this purpose thin sheets were used of {sup 197}Au, {sup 58}Ni, {sup 115}In, {sup 24}Mg, {sup 27}Al, {sup 58}Fe, {sup 59}Co and {sup 63}Cu. After the irradiation, the high energy gamma emissions of the activated thin sheets were measured by means of gamma spectrometry, in a counting system of high resolution, with a Hyper pure Germanium detector, obtaining this way the activity induced in the thin sheets whose magnitude is proportional to the intensity of the neutrons flow, this activity together to a theoretical initial spectrum are the main entrance data of the computational code SANDBP (Hungarian version of the code Sand-II) that uses the unfolding method for the calculation of the spectrum.

    The Department of Vigilance Radiologica y Radiactividad Ambiental from CIEMAT has developed an appropriate analytical methodology for Fe-55 and Ni-63 sequential determination in environmental samples based on the procedure used by RIS0 Laboratories. The experimental results obtained in the mayor and minor elements behaviour (soil and air constituents) in the different types of resins used for separating Fe-55 and Ni-63 are showed in this report. The measuring method of both isotopes by scintillation counting has been optimized with Ultima Gold liquid with different concentrations of stable element Fe and Ni. The decontamination factors of different gamma-emitters are experimentally determined in this method with the presence of soil matrix. The Fe-55 and Ni-63 activity concentrations and their associated uncertainties have been calculated from the counting data and sample preparation. A computer application has been implemented in Visual Basic in excel sheets for: (I) obtaining the counting data from spectrometer and counts in each window, (II) representing graphically the background and sample spectrums, (III) determining the activity concentration and its associated uncertainty and (IV) calculating the characteristic limits using ISO 11929 (2007) with various confidence levels.

    For the determination of boron in carbonaceous materials (high purity graphite, coals and their processed products, such as ashes and slags from thermoelectric power plants) by atomic emission spectroscopy with direct current are excitation and photographic recording, the behaviour of the analyte in the presence of halide compounds or spectrochemical buffers has been studied. Among the halides, cupric fluoride at a low concentration (2%) becomes very suitable for the graphite analysis, and at a higher concentration (25 %) for coals, being necessary in this case to carry out a dilution of samples with graphite. Strontium carbonate as a spectrochemical buffer allows to analyse satisfactorily coals and their combustion products. (Author) 13 refs.

    In this report one distribution of neutron counts obtained by a detector placed in a reactor is studied in order to be used in the determination of reactor kinetic parameters such as {beta}/{lambda} and reactivities. The parameters accuracy from this new method is compared with the Feynman and Mogilner method, based too in Reactor Neutron Noise Analysis. These three methods have been applied to JEN-2 reactor and the better accuracy and faster collection of experimental data give some interest to the new method which only requires a good footing code.

    The study of the movement of sediments in sea beds, is necessary when one plans to build a port. Among the techniques used for this studies, it is the radiotracer balance that gives an useful estimation of the quantity of sediment that it moves per day and by meter (perpendicular to the displacement). The main objectives of this work are: to) to present the characteristics of the obtaining of the used radiotracer, describing details those used safety measures, b) to describe the handling of the radiotracer and it radiological safety, during the transport and injection in the sea bottom, c) description of the detection way and the used equipment, d) to describe the information processing obtained in the field and finally, e) the estimate of the solid consumption and the determination of the direction and speed of displacement of those sediments in the sea bottom, in front of the Tabasco coast, to be used jointly with the information obtained by means of other techniques so that one can make a good planning of the operations of dredging during the construction and later on the maintenance of the Dos Bocas marine terminal. The first step is to obtain the radiotracer that in this case was sand of uniform grain metric, marked superficially with Gold-198. The second step is to transport the sand to the place of interest, to place it in the injection equipment and to deposit it in the sea bottom. The third step is to detect the radiotracer in the sea bed, from a craft that drags a sled, which takes mounted a scintillation detector of sodium iodide activated with thallium NaI(Tl) (probe). The fourth step is to process the field information and to obtain the corresponding results. (Author)

    The practice of Brachytherapy with Iridium-192 sources of low dose rate (0.4 - 0.8 Gy/h) is a technique used in the treatment of diverse illnesses. in this work the preparation, quality control and calibration are presented in terms of kerma in air of Iridium-192 using as target these recycled Iridium-Platinum wires. The targets were obtained as decayed sources of different radio therapeutical centers in the country and they were characterized by Scanning electron microscopy in order to determine their chemical composition. Subsequently it was developed an experimental design to establish the effect of neutron flux, geometrical array and irradiation time over the activity and percentage of the sources homogeneity. The homogeneity was determined by auto radiography and by Gamma spectroscopy. Once the optimal irradiation conditions were established, it is determined the apparent activity and kerma in air using a well type ionization chamber with traceability to a primary laboratory. Iridium-192 sources were obtained with an average homogeneity 96 %, apparent activity 282.129 {+-} 0.531 M Bq and kerma in air 0.03200 {+-} 0.00006 m Gy m/h A. (Author)

    This thesis presents the neutron spectrum measurements inside the core of the TRIGA Mark III reactor at 1 MW power in steady-state, with the bridge placed in the center of the swimming pool, using several metallic threshold foils. The activation detectors are inserted in the Central Thimble of the reactor core, all the foils are irradiated in the same position and irradiation conditions (one by one). The threshold detectors are made of different materials such as: Au{sup 197}, Ni{sup 58}, In{sup 115}, Mg{sup 24}, Al{sup 27}, Fe{sup 58}, Co{sup 59} and Cu{sup 63}, they were selected to cover the full range the energies (10{sup -10} to 20 MeV) of the neutron spectrum in the reactor core. After the irradiation, the activation detectors were measured by means of spectrometry gamma, using a high resolution counting system with a hyper pure Germanium crystal, in order to obtain the saturation activity per target nuclide. The saturation activity is one of the main input data together with the initial spectrum, for the computational code SANDBP (hungarian version of the code SAND-II), which through an iterative adjustment, gives the calculated spectrum. The different saturation activities are necessary for the unfolding method, used by the computational code SANDBP. This research work is very important, since the knowledge of the energetic and spatial distribution of the neutron flux in the irradiation facilities, allows to characterize properly the irradiation facilities, just like, to estimate with a good precision various physics parameters of the reactor such as: neutron fluxes (thermal, intermediate and fast), neutronic dose, neutron activation analysis (NAA), spectral indices (cadmium ratio), buckling, fuel burnup, safety parameters (reactivity, temperature distribution, peak factors). In addition, the knowledge of the already mentioned parameters can give a best use of reactor, optimizing the irradiations requested by the users for their production process or research projects.

    In this work the luminescent characteristics of the ZrO{sub 2} are presented using the method of Thermally Stimulated Luminescence (TSL), also called thermoluminescence (Tl). The powders of ZrO{sub 2} were obtained by two preparation methods: for precipitation and for evaporation of Sol-gel. The luminescent characteristics of the ZrO{sub 2} are determined using a lamp of radiation of UV light and a radiation source of beta particles of {sup 90}Sr/{sup 90}Y. Using the method of thermal stimulation the curve representative thermoluminescent of the previously irradiated material was obtained. The curve Tl of the ZrO{sub 2} irradiated with UV light presents a maximum in 180 C. Likewise, the spectrum of the curve Tl of the ZrO{sub 2} irradiated with particles beta presents a maximum centered in 181 C. While using gamma radiation like excitement source one has a spectrum with a peak centered in 184 C. When subjecting the materials obtained by sol-gel to a process of calcination at 1000 C for 24 hours a curved Tl it presents with two maxim in 185 and in 290 C respectively. The intensity of the response induced in the material it is a decisive factor to continue studying the dosimetric characteristics of the ZrO{sub 2} what allows to consider it as a potential material to use it in the beta particle dosimetry and of the UV light using the thermoluminescence method (Tl).

    This work shows as specific methodology for the determination of dissolved oxygen in saline waters that allows to consider the variations of temperature and of concentration of salts. Both factors influence the solubility of the gases in water, making possible in place measurements, in bodies of water with content of salts unto of the concentration of sea water, with greater dependability. The mathematical models obtained are shown, the errors due to equipment, as well as the results obtained when applying this methodology in saline waters with diverse levels of contamination this allows to discern when the decrease of dissolved oxygen levels is due to an increase in the salinity or to an increase in the contamination of the water body.

    The burnt fuel elements that are extracted in each charging of the Units 1 and 2 of the Nuclear Power Plant of Laguna Verde, are deposited in shelves placed in the storage reservoir designed for this end. Each cell or storage shelf has a structure type cage. Among the cells neutron absorber material is placed, (Boral), what allows to avoid the possible criticality that could settle down when accumulating in the storage the irradiated fuel elements. This boral has been designed to maintain its characteristics of thermal neutron absorber during a lifetime of the plant. To check that the wings and the Boral have not suffered some degradation or some change due to the environmental conditions in the warehouse, it is necessary to watch over their physical and chemical characteristics periodically, what is carried out by a surveillance program based on Badges or manufactured witness coupons of the same material that the wings. The badges witness are embedded in a special wing, which is placed in the place with more radiation in the pool. In this work the laboratory tests carried out in the ININ to the coupon witness 03 of the Unit 2, (II-03) are described, being presented the results and obtained conclusions. (Author)

    Using the method of instrumental neutron activation analysis, mineral exploration samples were analyzed in order to determine the concentrations of silver, gold, zinc and copper; these minerals being the main products of benefit of Tizapa and Cozamin mines. Samples were subjected to various techniques, where the type of radiation and counting methods were chosen based on the specific isotopic characteristics of each element. For calibration and determination of concentrations the comparator method was used, certified standards were subjected to the same conditions of irradiation and measurement that the prospecting samples. The irradiations were performed at the research reactor TRIGA Mark II of the University of Texas at Austin. The silver concentrations were determined by Cyclical Epithermal Neutron Activation Analysis. This method in combination with the transfer pneumatic system allowed a good analytical precision and accuracy in prospecting for silver, from photo peak measurement 657.7 keV of short half-life radionuclide {sup 110}Ag. For the determination of gold and zinc, Epithermal Neutron Activation Analysis was used, the photo peaks analyzed corresponded to the energies 411.8 keV of radionuclide {sup 199}Au and 438.6 keV of metastable radionuclide {sup 69m}Zn. On the other hand, copper quantification was based on the photo peak analysis of 1039.2 keV produced by the short half-life radionuclide {sup 66}Cu, by Thermal Neutron Activation Analysis. The photo peaks measurement corresponding to gold, zinc and copper was performed using a Compton suppression system, which allowed an improvement in the signal to noise relationship, so that better detection limits and low uncertainties associated with the results were obtained. Comparing elemental concentrations the highest values in silver, zinc and copper was for samples of mine Tizapa. Regarding gold values were found in the same range for both mines. To evaluate the precision and accuracy of the methods used, various geological reference materials with satisfactory results according to the certified values were analyzed. (Author)

    Namely the operational magnitudes can be determined by the product of a conversion coefficient by exposure air kerma or fluence, etc. In particular in Mexico for the first time is determined the conversion coefficient (Cc) for operational magnitude Environmental Dose Equivalent H(10) by thermoluminescence dosimetry (TLD) technique. First 30 TLD-100 dosimeters are calibrated in terms of air kerma, then these dosimeters are irradiated inside a sphere ICRU type of PMMA and with the aid of theory cavity the absorbed dose in PMMA is determined at a depth of 10 mm within the sphere D{sub PMMA}(10), subsequently absorbed dose to ICRU tissue is corrected and the dose equivalent H(10) is determined. The Cc is determined as the ratio of H(10)/K{sub a} obtaining a value of 1.20 Sv Gy{sup -1} with a u{sub c}= 3.66%, this being consistent with the published value in ISO-4037-3 of 1.20 Sv Gy{sup -1} with a u{sub c}= 2%.

    In this paper, the results obtained in the study of two Pyrenean glacier lakes, Sabocos and Banos, are analyzed and interpreted on the basis of the Directive 2006/60/CE (Water Framework Directive). The evaluation of their conservation level is also based on the concept of ecological quality. Sampling was carried out seasonally, throughout one year period, in order to estimate the influence of the activities practiced in summer and winter in that area. the ecological quality level found in both lakes is lower than expected and the main hazards is the high concentration of some heavy metals. However, this study points out a lack of adequate specific criteria to adequately evaluate those environments. (Author) 16 refs.

    The determination of minor and trace elements in the magnesium oxide, considered as possible ceramic material in thermonuclear fusion reactors, has been studied. The concentration ranges are 0.1 - 0.3 % for Ca, Si and Y, and at the ppm level for Al, Co, Cr, Fe, Hf, K, Li, Mn, Na, Ni, Sc, Ti, V and Zr. Atomic emission spectroscopy with direct current arc excitation and photographic detection has been employed. In order to eliminated the effect due to the differences in density between standards and samples, which are a source of errors, a chemical treatment of both is carried out. Likewise, for attaining conditions more suitable for the volatilization of certain impurities, these are determined with the sample in fluoride form. (author)

    The objective of this work, is the one of determining the kinetic parameters of the dosemeter of LiF: Mg, Cu, P + Ptfe; starting from the curves Tl obtained at being irradiated with alpha radiation ({alpha}), beta ({beta}) and gamma ({gamma}). As like to compare its sensitivity with each radiation type, considering the sensitivity of the TLD-100 as the unit. In the Chapter 1, the fundamental structure of the matter is described, making emphasis in the different radiation types, and their interaction with this. In the Chapter 2, the units are described but used in the dosimetry of the radiation. In the Chapter 3, the basic concepts of the phenomenon of Tl are described and those are explained characteristic of the deconvolution method to determine the kinetics of the one phenomenon. In the Chapter 4, the methodology is detailed that was used in the elaboration of this thesis work, describing the material Tl that were considered like reference, as well as the sources of ionizing radiation, with those that the dosemeters were irradiated and the equipment in the one that the curves Tl was obtained. Reference is made to the software used to carry out the deconvolution of the curves Tl that were obtained in the one experimental development. In the Chapter 5, the obtained results of this study are presented, showing the tables of homogenization of dosemeters and the reading of the same one; they are observed the curves Tl obtained to different radiation doses (alpha, beta and gamma), the intensity Tl in function of the dose. Also they are tabulated, the obtained results in the kinetic parameters of the three different study materials (TLD-100H, USA; TLD-100, USA and LiF: Mg, Cu, P + Ptfe developed in the l.N.l.N). They are analyzed shortly for each material Tl their sensitivity to the ionizing radiation as well as their kinetic parameters. The obtained results showed that the Tl dosemeters of LiF: Mg,Cu,P + Ptfe, they presented a bigger sensitivity that the TLD-100 when being irradiated with gamma radiation of {sup 60} Co, in air. While when being irradiated with the same type of radiation, but in phantom of water, their sensitivity was lightly smaller. To the being irradiated with beta radiation of {sup 90} Sr, the relative sensitivity diminished and it was considerably smaller when being irradiated with alpha radiation of {sup 244} Cm. (Author)

    Concentration levels of {sup 222} Rn and {sup 226} Rn have been analyzed in water samples from boreholes belonging to the drinking water supply system around Toluca, Mexico. The {sup 222} Rn source is the decay of {sup 226} Rn within the solid matrix of the aquifer. The study was performed during the dry and rainy seasons. {sup 222} Rn concentration was determined by the liquid scintillation technique, {sup 226} Rn was determined by gamma spectrometry, the physicochemical parameters and bacteriological analysis were performed by conventional chemical techniques. Solubilized trace elements were determined by Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry (Icp-Ms). The radon level fluctuations at the boreholes in Toluca city and Almoloya spring indicated differences in the radon content. At borehole Lodos Prietos 2, the temperature and radon level were systematically the highest in comparison with the other boreholes and the spring indicating a contribution of a regional flow to the water of this particular borehole. The result for {sup 226} Rn, the average {sup 222} Rn observed during the sampling period, no correspondence occurs between the radium and the radon content indicating that, radon is not supported by radium, but is incorporated into the water through fissures in the rocks in contact with the water. The radon levels obtained in house faucets which water is supplied by boreholes decrease as a function of the distance from the source borehole to the house. With the chemical composition of each one of the studied boreholes and spring a Piper diagram was draw indicating the kind of water. The boreholes and spring can be classified as bicarbonate calcium/magnesium. Almost no fluctuation on time was observed in the chemical species and trace elements only a slight increase was observed at the end of the rain season. At Almoloya, spring pollution with coliform bacteria and nitrates showed an anthropogenic contribution to the water deterioration probable and fertilizers and detritus. Most of the studied water samples were potable, however at Lodos Prietos 2 borehole the fluorine concentration was higher than the established norm. (Author)

    The kinetic study of the biological treatment may help determine the speed in which the microorganisms metabolise a specific substrate and then we can obtain the necessary information to figure out the calculations for the dimensions of a biological reactor. Since the wastewater treatment should not be an exact science, a new generation of respirometry systems, based on simple methods, allow us to go through these parameters from a practical and efficient stance. To this end, in this work, we have selected the most simple calculation methods in order to create an easy and friendly background. Respirometry is the window through which we can observe active sludge life. Other systems, not based on the genuine biological activity of the sludge, no not reflect the actual state and reactions taking place in the biological reactor. For all the aforesaid reasons, the new generation of Respirometry may be considered as a fundamental tool for control, surveillance and kinetic parameter performance. (Author)

    In Argentina almost 30% of the total end-use energy is consumed by the building sector. Within it, for residential use, the most usual fuel is natural gas. According to a 1997 survey, the known reserves would last approximately 32 years at the present rate of consumption. It is therefore essential to asses the performance of the building stock, in relation to energy conservation and the access to renewable energy resources, in order to plan the future urban development within the scope of maximum achievable energetic and environmental sustainability compatible whit the present urban morphology. The particular features of environments within the urban system, may significantly condition the access to and the availability of climatic resources. When the technical feasibility of a specific climatic design, for a new or refurbished building is analyzed, it is necessary to asses the available solar potential and potentially collecting areas, particularly within high density urban environment, where the shadows cast by tall neighboring buildings can significantly reduce solar access. A graphic-computational model developed for the purpose is described; it is a precise and easy to use tool. Departing from the loading of the buildings volumes coordinates, of a given urban environment and the solar position it will draw axonometric perspectives as seen from the sun. It will then calculate the areas, normal to the sun beams of the radiation prisms impinging on every building facade, for any hour or day of the year. The model was developed within the environment of the AutoCADR program. [Spanish] Del total de los recursos energeticos consumidos en la Argentina casi el 30% corresponde al uso domestico, de ese total a escala residencial el mas utilizado para la calefaccion es el gas natural, contando en la actualidad, segun estudios realizados en el ano 1997, con un volumen de reserva para unos 32 anos, manteniendose la tasa de consumo actual. Esto hace imprescindible conocer el comportamiento del parque edificio, en lo referente a la conservacion de energia y el acceso a los recursos energeticos renovables, para planificar el crecimiento urbano dentro de un marco de maxima sustentabilidad energetico ambiental compatible con la actual morfologia urbana. Las particulares caracteristicas de la estructura urbana, condicionan de manera significativa el acceso y la disponibilidad de recursos climaticos. Cuando se analiza la viabilidad de un diseno bioclimatico en un edificio nuevo o en el reciclado de uno existente es necesario conocer el potencial solar disponible, ademas de las areas colectoras potenciales, sobre todo en ambitos urbanos de alta densidad, donde la incidencia de los volumenes edilicios vecinos, sobre el acceso al sol es notable. Se describe un metodo grafico computacional de alta precision y de facil manejo que, a partir de la carga de una volumetria edilicia y de los valores de posicion solar, permite obtener perspectivas axonometricas vistas desde el sol, dando como resultado, superficies de secciones normales a la direccion de los rayos solares incidentes sobre cada fachada asoleada, para cualquier hora y dia del ano. La rutina del metodo se desarrolla dentro del ambiente de programacion de AutoCAD{sup R}, por considerar que dicho entorno, es uno de los mas utilizados en el medio del diseno asistido por computadora, lo que permite obtener un resultado facilmente transferible.

    Testing laboratories participate in external quality controls. For these controls are useful it is necessary to eliminate factors that can introduce sources of variability in the results. A factor to consider in this paper as a source of variability is the calibration geometry chosen for the correct quantification of the activity concentrations. This work contains the results of the intercomparison exercise and from them analysed the effect of the geometry of calibration used in the quantification of activity concentrations present in the activated carbon filter.

    The determination of uranium with arsenazo is hindered by a great number of cation which form stable complexes with the reactive and may given rise to serious interferences. By studying the optimum conditions of uranium the extraction be means of tributylphosphate solutions dissolved in methylisobuthylketone, under conditions for previous masking of the interfering cations, an organic extract was obtained containing all the uranium together with small amounts of iron. The possible interference derived from the latter element is avoided by reduction with hydroxylammoniumchlorid followed by complex formation of the Fe(II)-ortophenantroline compound in alcoholic medium.

    With the purpose of defining the inspection frequency, in function of the embrittlement of the materials that compose the welding of the 'Core Shroud' or encircling of the core of a BWR type reactor, is necessary to know the neutron fluence received for this welding. In the work the calculated values of neutron fluence accumulated maxim (E > 1 MeV) during the first 8 operation cycles of the reactor are presented. The calculations were carried out according to the NRC Regulatory Guide 1.190, making use of the DORT code, which solves the transport equation in discreet ordinate in two dimensions (xy, r{theta}, and rz). The results in 3D were obtained applying the Synthesis method according to the guide before mentioned. Results are presented for the horizontal welding H3, H4, and H5, showing the corresponding curves to the fluence accumulated to the cycle 8 and a projection for the cycle 14 is presented. (Author)

    Recently inorganic materials are investigating as sorbent of radioactive pollutants present in water. The inorganic oxides belong to this group of materials. A quick method exists for the obtaining of inorganic oxides, denominated combustion method that could be used to produce porous oxides successfully with good properties for the sorption of radioactive ions. In this investigation, iron oxides, magnesium and zinc were synthesized obtained by the combustion method, comparing them with those synthesized by the calcination method, using two different synthesis temperatures. The obtained solids were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (Sem), by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and by semiquantitative elemental analysis (EDS). After the characterization, the crystalline oxides synthesized by both methods, to temperature of 800 C, were evaluated as sorbents in the removal of Co{sup 2+} ions, through experiments in batch, and using neutron activation analysis, determining the sorption percentage, with this it was concluded that the magnesium oxide produced by combustion it is more effective in the removal of Co{sup 2+} ions than that synthesized by calcination. It was determined the surface area of the magnesium oxides, obtaining a surface area greater for the synthesized oxide by combustion method. (Author)

    The main purpose of this work is to evaluate the different mechanical properties and the different fracture mechanisms activated during the instrumented indentation process of the electrolytes based on Yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) and gadolinia doped ceria (GDC), for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). Both materials, with a thickness of 200 {mu}m, were shaped by uniaxial pressing at 500 MPa, and sintered at 1400 degree centigrade. Mechanical properties such as hardness (H) and Young's modulus (E) have been studied at different penetration depths using the Oliver and Pharr equations. The different fracture mechanisms activated during the instrumented indentation process have been studied at constant penetration depth of 500 nm, performed with a diamond Berkovich tip indenter. The residual indentation imprints have been observed with atomic force microscopy (AFM). The hardness and Young's modulus for YSZ electrolytes are higher than for GDC materials, due to the different fracture mechanism activated during the indentation process. As a result, the electrolytes of YSZ presented trans- and intergranular fracture mechanisms, depending on the place of the residual indentation imprint (in the grain boundary or in the middle of the grain, respectively). However, the GDC electrolyte revealed radical cracks at the corners of the residual nano indentation imprints, thus producing a phenomenon known as chipping. (Author)

    To evaluate the environmental risks of air pollution and to facilitate the decision-making for control, is necessary to have the capacity to generate data with analytical quality. A comparison between nuclear (Neutron activation analysis and total reflection X-ray fluorescence spectrometry) and no nuclear analytical techniques (atomic absorption spectrometry and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry) for simultaneous determination of metal content (Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Pb and Zn) in mosses from Metropolitan Area of the Toluca Valley (MATV) was performed. Epiphytic mosses (Fabriona ciliaris and Leskea angustata) were sampled in two campaigns, 16 sites (urban, transition and natural) and were prepared for each technique. The biological certified reference materials were used for the quality control and to evaluate accuracy, precision, linearity, detection and quantification limits. Results show that nuclear analytical techniques and no nuclear applied in chemical analysis of Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Pb and Zn in moss from MATV are comparable and therefore all of these can potentially be used for this purpose. However, if its considered both, the performance parameters and economic/operational characteristics is widely recommended inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry, conventional analytical technique, which showed the highest analytical grade quality. Also were observed spatial and temporal variations in the concentrations of Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Pb and Zn in mosses from MATV and was discussed its potential origin. The urban sites had the highest concentration of anthropogenic elements as Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Pb and Zn because are strongly impacted by roads with high vehicle traffic. (Author)

    The fuel assemblies storage in the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde (NPP-L V) represents a crucial aspect, due to the generated dose by the decay heat of the present radio-nuclides in the assemblies retired of the reactor core, after their useful life. These spent assemblies are located inside the spent fuel pool (SFP), in the level 49.90 m in the Reload Floor of the Reactor building of NPP-L V. This leads to the protection at personnel applying the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) criteria, fulfilling the established dose criteria by the Regulator Body the Comision Nacional de Seguridad Nuclear y Salvaguardias (CNSNS). Considering the loss scenario of the cooling system of the SFP, in which the SFP water vaporizes, is important to know the water level in which the limit of effective dose equivalent is fulfilled for the personnel. Also, is important for the instrumentation of the SFP, for the useful life of the same instruments. In this work is obtained the exposition rapidity corresponding to different water levels of SFP in the Reload Floor of NPP-L V, to identify the minimum level of water where the limit of effective dose equivalent is fulfilled of 25 rem s to the personnel, established in the Article 48 of the General Regulation of Radiological Safety of CNSNS and the Chapter 50 Section 67 of the 10-Cfr of Nuclear Regulatory Commission in USA. The water level is also identified where the exposition rapidity is of 15 m R/hr, being the value of the set point of the area radiation monitor D21-Re-N003-1, located to 125 cm over the level 49.90 meters of the Reload Floor of NPP-L V.

    The present work deals with the energy evaluation of biological processes as energy source and is based on works concerning laboratory, pilot and field research. The objective of the research is to integrate the effect of the aerobic phase during the process of degradation of organic residues (basically the organic fraction of domestic residues), where the last aim is the biogas production. The usefulness of the results is reflected in the suitable estimation of the filling of a sanitary landfill considering the composition of the residues deposited and the effects that this management will have on the run-up time of the same and the velocity of biogas production. Finally, integrates a reflection on the intrinsic energy implications of the process and of the biogas yielding, which is evaluated as well as energy source. [Spanish] El presente trabajo trata sobre la valoracion energetica de procesos biologicos como fuente de energia y se basa en trabajos de investigacion a nivel de laboratorio, piloto y de campo. El objetivo de la investigacion es integrar el efecto de la fase aerobia durante el proceso de degradacion de residuos organicos (basicamente la fraccion organica de residuos domesticos), donde el fin ultimo es la produccion de biogas. La utilidad de los resultados se refleja en la estimacion adecuada del llenado de un relleno sanitario considerando la composicion de los residuos ahi depositados y los efectos que tendra esta gestion sobre el tiempo de estabilizacion de los mismos y la velocidad de produccion de biogas. Finalmente, se integra una reflexion sobre las implicaciones energeticas intrinsecas al proceso y del rendimiento de biogas, el cual a su vez es valorizado como fuente de energia.

    We describe an application of the Temez model to calculate total water influx in a natural regime and its division into its surface and groundwater components. We also suggest a suitable way of integrating the data series obtained into the SIMGES conjunctive use code. The literature offers a considerable number of precipitation-runoff models for calculating the total influx into a basin. Within this context the Temez model is a relatively simple code which in certain cases has decided advantages over more complex ones, as we point out in this paper. For a better understanding of this model, we include an annex showing its mathematical basis. We used the Temez model to calculate the surface and groundwater influx into the Cornisa-Vega de Granada water system, which comprises 25 river sub-basins, 5 reservoirs and 23 aquifers, meaning that the interrelation between surface water and groundwater is quite complex and difficult to assess. In addition to this, some points of the series are quite difficult to calibrate because the natural regime of the water system is being considerably altered by human activity. We analyse the four parameters used in the Temez model together with the factors affecting both its calibration and the reliability and uncertainties of the results deriving from its application.

    This work was made with the purpose to complete information about the hydrolysis constants of Europium (III) in high ion strength media. So it was determined at a ion forces media 4, 5 and 6 M of sodium perchlorate at 303 K. The method used was the potentiometric with the aid of the Super quad computer program. In high ion strength media, the measurements of p H do not correspond directly to negative logarithm of the concentration of hydrogen ions, by this it is necessary to calibrate the electrode in these conditions. The Europium was hydrolized at pC{sub H} values greater 6 in all cases. The potentiometric method used under the described experimental conditions is adequate to determine the hydrolysis constants of Europium (III). According to the results and diagrams of chemical species of Europium obtained we can conclude that the hydrolysis constants, differ by its distribution but not in its identity. (Author)

    The extraction properties of octa-phosphinoylated para-tert butyl calix[8]arene (prepared in the laboratory) in chloroform towards uranyl ions from an aqueous-acidic-salty medium (HNO{sub 3}-3.5 NaNO{sub 3}) containing uranyl nitrate salt, was investigated. Two spectroscopic techniques UV/Vis and Luminescence were used for this study. The latter permitted analyze the fluorescence from the uranyl ions influenced by the surrounding medium. Both permitted to learn about the power of this calixarene as extractant towards the mentioned ions. Its extraction ability or capability using this calixarene at 5.91 x 10{sup -4} M towards the uranyl ions was 400% as determined by UV/Vis while fluorescence revealed 100% of uranyl ion extraction. A closed analysis of the results obtained by using these techniques revealed that the stoichiometry of the main extracted species was 1calixarene:2 uranyl ions. The loading capacity of the calixarene ligand towards the uranyl ions was also investigated using both techniques. UV/Vis resulted to be inadequate for quantifying exactly the loading capacity of the calixarene whereas luminescence was excellent indeed, using a 5.91 x 10{sup -4} M calixarene concentration, its loading capacity was 0.157 M of free uranyl ions from 0.161 M of uranyl ions present in the aqueous-acidic-salty medium. The extracts from the ability and capacity studies were concentrated to dryness, purified and the dried extracts were analyzed by infrared and neutron activation analysis. By these techniques it was demonstrated that during the extraction of the uranyl ions by the calixarene ligand they form thermodynamically and kinetically stable complexes, since in the solid state, the 1:2, calixarene; uranyl ions stoichiometry was kept with the minimum formula: (UO{sub 2}){sub 2}B{sub 8}bL{sup 8}(NO{sub 3}){sub 4}(H{sub 2}O){sub 4}CHCl{sub 3}(CH{sub 3}OH){sub 3} the methanol molecules come from its purification. It is proposed that B{sub 8}bL{sup 8} calixarene in chloroform medium is a good extractant for the treatment of nuclear wastes or radioactive wastes containing uranium in a rich aqueous-acidic-salty medium.

    Inside the process of Impact Evaluation to the Safety of the Direccion General Adjunta de Seguridad Nuclear of the Comision Nacional de Seguridad Nuclear y Salvaguardias (CNSNS) the Significance Determination Process (SDP) is used, developed by the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (US NRC), to evaluate the violations or defaults to the regulatory framework and to determine its importance to the risk by means of a fixed color: Green (Very low impact to the safety), White (Low impact to moderate to the safety), Yellow (Substantial impact to the safety) or Red (High impact to the safety). All this inside the seven safety foundations of the Reactor Oversight Process: Initiator Events, Mitigation Systems, Integrity of the Barriers, Preparation for Emergencies, Occupational Radiological Safety, Radiological Safety of the Public and Physical Safety. At present the US NRC has developed a new version of the SDP, which presents changes in its structure and the opportunity of carrying out informed evaluations in risk, with more detail about the violations or defaults that happen in different areas. The CNSNS carries out the adaptation of this last version of the SDP in order to have an updated tool for the violations and defaults characterization to the regulatory framework happened in the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde. In this article is mentioned the legal framework that confers the CNSNS the attributions to impose urgency measures and administrative sanctions to its licensees, also is established the definition of the different colors that the SDP contemplates in function of the increased risk (ΔCdf), a description of the SDP objectives and the elements that conform it is presented, in the same way some examples to illustrate its application are raised. Finally, the steps to continue for their implementation are mentioned. (Author)

    The generation of radiolytic products as a result of alpha radiation in the surface of the spent fuel is a key process in order to understand how the it becomes degraded in repository conditions. The present work has established a radiolytic model based on a set of reactions involving fuel oxidation-dissolution and radiolytic products recombination. It also includes the decrease of the dose rates as the main alpha emitters decay away. Four cases, with varying parameters of the system, have been assessed. The results show a decrease in both the concentration of the radiolytic products in the gap water and the degradation of the fuel matrix. It has been estimated that in the period of the evaluation (10''6 years) up to 52% of the pellet is altered in the conservative cases, whereas only 11% is altered in the realistic cases. No significant differences were observed when the carbonates reactions were included in the system. (Author)

    A stainless steel 308l coating was deposited by the shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) on steel A36 with a thickness of 4.726 mm in three layers. The sensitization was measured with the technique of Electrochemical Potentiodynamic Reactivation of Double-loop (EPR-Dl), using a portable cell and other of conventional window. The standard Astm A-262, practice A was used to verify the sensitization values. Two samples were used, a welding on a plate of 323 x 172 x 76.2 mm and the second welding on the end of a plate of 12.7 mm of thickness and 280 mm of longitude, with a post-welding process with gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) with electrode ERNiCr{sub 3} and a process SMAW with electrode ENICRFe{sub 3}. The coating on the plate showed low values of sensitization grade (DOS) in all the points, indicating a very quick heat extraction and an inter dendritic structure type step. The second sample presented DOS values that are related with a structure of low sensitization and the influence of the heat of the post-welding process and a structure of recrystallized grains.

    In Venezuela recently it was implanted the Positron Emission Tomography technique (PET) with the perspective of implanting it at national level. Even when in our country practices it of nuclear medicine it exists from early of 70, there is not experience in the determination of the occupational doses by exposure to the external radiation in hands. By this reason, a concern exists in the workers of the centers of nuclear medicine where it is practiced the Positron Emission Tomography technique. In absence of the TLD dosimetry to measure dose in hands in our country, measurements of the dose equivalent of the workers of the PET national reference center were made, using a detector of hands type diode. It was determined the dose in hands in terms of dose equivalent Hp(0.07) in two work positions, that is: the corresponding to the transfer of the receiving vial of ({sup 18}F) FDG to the shield, quality control and uni doses division. The second work position corresponds the person in charge of administering, via intravenous, the ({sup 18}F) FDG. In this work it realizes the dose equivalent in hands Hp(0.07) measures in each one of the work positions before described by daily production. The informed doses correspond to a total average produced activity of 20.4 GBq (550 mCi). The results of the measurements in terms of dose equivalent in hands Hp(0.07) correspond to 2.1 {+-} 20% mSv in the work position of division and 0.4 {+-} 10% mSv in the position of injection of the radioactive material. At short term this foreseen until 4 productions per week, what means an annual dose equivalent Hp(0.07) in hands of 400 mSv approximately, without taking into account abnormal situations as its are spills of the ({sup 18}F) FDG in the work place. This work is the starting point so that the regulatory authority settles down, in Venezuela, dose restrictions in the PET practices and implant, in the centers of nuclear medicine, an optimization politics of this practice in conformity with the ALARA principle.

    In this work the experimental results of studying the thermoluminescent characteristics (TL) of the zirconium oxide doped with copper (ZrO{sub 2}: Cu) exposed to ultraviolet light of wavelength in the interval of 200-400 nm are presented. The material in powder form was prepared using the sol-gel method. The dosimetric characteristics studied includes the emission curve TL (curved TL), the thermoluminescent response in function of the wavelength, the minimum dose detectable and the lineality of the response. The TL response of the ZrO{sub 2}: Cu in function of the wavelength presents two maxima, in 260 and 290 nm, respectively. The TL curve of the ZrO{sub 2}: Cu showed two peaks, in 120 and 170 C, respectively, being its similar form for all the studied wavelengths. The response in function of the spectral irradiance results to be lineal in the interval from 160 to 2300 mJ/cm{sup 2}. The obtained results when studying the TL properties of ZrO{sub 2}: Cu exposed to the ultraviolet radiation show that it gathers dosimetric characteristics prominent to be used as an ultraviolet radiation dosemeter.

    The study of the content of dissolved Rn{sup 222} is presented in underground water and of domicile of the cities of Chihuahua and Aldama of the State of Chihuahua. The existence of the Rn{sup 222} in the underground waters comes from its constant production in the rocks of the terrestrial bark. It has been determined that the radon is a noble gas of more solubility in the water, this solubility induces high concentrations in underground water, as well as bigger risk to the health in the human body once ingested or inhaled. Of the 32 wells studied in the cities of Chihuahua and Aldama, the content of dissolved Rn{sup 222} in the water of 22 of them is bigger than 11 Bq/l and of 73 studied samples of water of domiciles 47 show bigger values that 11 Bq/l. These radon contents are attributable to the uraniferous rocks present in the aquifers. (Author)

    The transuranides analysis in environmental samples is carried out by CIEMAT using standardized methods based on sequential separation with ionic-exchange resins. The americium fraction is purified through a two-layer ion exchange column and lately in an anion-exchange column in nitric acid methanol medium. The technique is time consuming and the results are not completely satisfactory (low recovery and loss of a-resolution) for some samples. The chemical compound CMPO (octyl(phenyl)-N,N-diisobutyl carbomoylmethyiphosphine oxide) dissolved in TPB (tributyl phosphate) and supported on an inert substrate has been tested directly for ''241Am analysis by a large number of laboratories. A new method that combines both procedures has been developed. The details of the improved procedure are described in this paper. The advantages of its application to environmental samples (urine, faeces and sediments) are discussed. The utilization of standard samples, with americium certified concentrations confirms the reliability of our measurements. (Author) 8 refs.

    The important amount of hydration water in the ulexite (NaCaN{sub 5}O{sub 9}.8H{sub 2}O), allows using calcination methods to increase its B{sub 2}O{sub 3} content. This paper analyses the thermal decomposition reaction of a preconcentrated ulexite through weight loss measurements, which occur during the heating of samples until 1000 degree centigree, Determinations of heat content at each temperature were made using an isoperibol calorimeter. The mean specific heat was calculated from these values, and its dependence on temperature was determined. The maximum weight loss was about 32.5% and the specific heat obtained was 1,13 kJ/kg 0 C for solid samples and 1,38 kJ/kg''0 C for fluid samples. The results are useful for the design of the industrial process, in order to determine the thermal requirements for heating calcined ulexite, and to obtain smelted ulexite. (Author) 19 refs.

    Whit the objective of to complete the existent techniques for susceptibility evaluation to phenomenon of stress corrosion cracking in laboratories of Applied Sciences Area of National Institute of Nuclear Research; was realized and documented the modification of a high pressure and temperature equipment, identified as MEX-03 to carry out the implementation of a growth and crack propagation assay, using a constant load method. The assay was realized to a specimen of stainless steel AISI 304l type CT of an inch, which was previously thermally sensitize, simulating the typical degradation of this materials type below operation conditions in a BWR. The MEX-03 system, consist from an annexed auto key to a load system which originally was controlled by displacement; therefore were carried out modifications to achieve the control by load. The realized adjustments allowed to maintain a constant load during all the experiment, and as much the temperature conditions (T = 288 C) as of pressure (P = 8 Mpa) were controlled during the assay realization. The steel was exposed to a conditioned ambient with hydrogen gas addition; simulating a well-known alternative chemistry as hydrogen water chemistry that is used to mitigate the phenomenon of stress corrosion cracking, main degradation mechanism of austenitic stainless steels. The continuation of the crack behavior was realized by means of electric potential fall technique and later was validated of visual form through the fractographic analysis of cracked surface. The modification and control of equipment for realization of this experiment is necessary, for what should be carried out new assays, whose results will allow to establish the effect of dynamic and static methods in velocity determination of crack growth to laboratory level; to be considered in the existent models of crack propagation in systems and components in operation.

    All the pollutants that are generated so much of anthropogenic activities as natural cause effects to the health, and of course its increase the atmospheric pollution. Today in day for the great advance of the technology other pollutants are even generated but noxious to the human being's health, such it is the case of the particles, which are also called particulate matter airborne (MPA). This has motivated, to establish control measures leaning in collection strategies and certified analysis techniques, accurate and reliable. In the National Institute of Nuclear Research (ININ) they have been carried out studies on particulate matter airborne. In 1991 it was installed, calibrated and validated the nuclear technique of atomic origin based on proton beams known as PIXE. The characterization of the (MPA) it is carried out applying this technique and the collection by means of Dichotomous collectors (SFU). The thesis work that is presented next, includes the topic of the atmospheric pollution by particulate matter airborne (MPA) in a mining region, inside the Hidalgo State. The study was carried out during the 1998 winter season, only embracing the whole month of March in alternate days giving a total of 112 samples. Two sites that are highly active in the mining were studied, these are: the Real del Monte town and the Hidalgo state capital: Pachuca. Four samples per day were collected beginning to the 7:00 am--7:00 pm (daytime period) and concluding to the 7:00 pm -7:00 am (nocturne period). The characterization of its elementary content is carried out using the X-ray emission induced by particles technique (PIXE) that is a nuclear technique able to analyze 23 chemical elements beginning from the Al to the Pb, it requires of a very small sample quantity, it is very sensitive and it is not destructive. This characterization one carries out so much for fraction PM{sub 2.5} (fine) like as PM{sub 10} (thick) in both sites, also it was analyzed the temporary variation that the chemical elements detected in the samples present in the atmosphere and it was determined for each particle fraction the enrichment factor, all them during the daytime and nocturne periods. The document is removed in 5 topics, the topic I refers to the foundations, in them that is the MPA and the introduction to the PIXE technique is presented; the topic ll is the methodology used for the samples characterization, using the introduction of the technique and instrumentation of the same one, as well as the mathematical process for the determination of the concentrations of the detected elements, also approaches the analysis programs used for the concentration determination; the topic III, it presents the results discussion, the topic IV the conclusions and lastly the topic V it includes the recommendations with base to the obtained results, its are also presented the carried out consultations and the annexes for both sites, these last ones include charts of results, graphic of temporary variation, location map of the sites and enrichment factor graphics.

    Full Text Available This article describes the combination of low- and high-pressure flow systems for the determination of Magnesium, Calcium and Strontium by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS. In the low-pressure system a short C-18 RP column (length 0,5 cm was utilized for the preconcentration/matrix separation step, xylenol orange was used as chelating agent and tetrabutylamonium acetate for ion pair formation. The hydraulic high pressure nebulization (HHPN was used for sample transport and sample introduction in the high pressure system. The repeatabilities and detection limits for Mg, Ca and Sr were determined and compared with those obtained by pneumatic nebulization (PN. The results show that the detection limits obtained using the HHPN for Mg, Ca and Sr are between 1.5 to 2 times better than those obtained by PN when the signal transient was measured in area. The system presented a sampling frequency of 130 h-1 for direct determination of Mg, Ca or Sr in samples of saturated sodium chloride used in the production of chlorine and sodium hydroxide.

    In compliance with the current regulations on water quality, an analytical methodology has been put in place in the laboratory of the waste water treatment plant in Tudela, Navarre (Spain) to monitor As, Sb, Hg, and Se in the water going into the public water supply. The technique used to monitor these elements is atomic absorption spectrometry, As, Sb, Se are determined by the generation of hydrides and Hg by the generation of cold vapour. In addition, in order to ensure the authenticity of the results, the methodology employed has been validated by a study of the following technical characteristics: linearity, work interval, sensitivity, precision and accuracy. Extremely satisfactory results were obtained in all cases. A linear range between 0 and 1000 mg/l for all four elements and extremely low detection and quantification limits (less than 1 mg/l) were found. In the study of the method's accuracy, the C. V. s were below the legally established minima and the method was found to be very accurate. (Author) 18 refs.

    The applications of the nuclear energy in industry and medicine generate radioactive wastes that must be isolated and confined in order to limit its spread in the biosphere. These types of wastes are generated in hospitals, industry, research centers and nuclear power plants (during de fuel cycle). The radioactive elements (radionuclides) cannot be destroyed by any known method, either chemical or mechanical. Its final destruction is produced by radioactive decay, which makes them stable isotopes, or nuclear transmutation being bombarded with atomic particles. Consequently, the radioactive waste management is to control the radioactive discharges and reduce to tolerable limits, eliminating of effluents and wastes the radionuclides of interest, concentrating them so they can be stored or evacuated so that later not appear in dangerous concentration in the biosphere. In Mexico, the main generators of radioactive wastes are the nuclear power plant of Laguna Verde in Veracruz, Hospitals of the public and private sector, in addition Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares (ININ) some institutes and facilities of the UNAM and Instituto Politecnico Nacional (IPN) and industries among others. The aqueous radioactive wastes, particularly those from the nuclear power plants contain traces of cobalt-60. Currently there is no model or analytical technique for the separation of this radionuclide, so it became necessary to develop an analytical model for separation and facilitate their disposal. In this paper was shown that atomic absorption and gamma spectrometry techniques can separate the active concentration of the inactive, which is important because the total concentration can be associated through direct relationships with the wear of metal parts of the nuclear reactor, since the metal alloys of the same reactor containing a fraction of cobalt. Also this analytical and mathematical model that can be reproducible and applicable to full sets of samples and that this correlation can be interpreted graphically to obtain approximate values for active or inactive cobalt concentration.

    At the beginning of the decade of the nineties, the industrial interest for TRIP steels leads to a significant increase of the investigation and application in this field. In this work, the flexibility of neural networks for the modelling of complex properties is used to tackle the problem of determining the retained austenite content in TRIP-steel. Applying a combination of two learning algorithms (backpropagation and creeping-random-search) for the neural network, a model has been created that enables the prediction of retained austenite in low-Si / low-Al multiphase steels as a function of processing parameters.

    This paper presents an optimized and validated analytical methodology for the determination of various polycyclic aromatic compounds in ambient air using liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection. This analysis method was applied to samples obtained during more than one year in an area of Madrid. Selected compounds have included thirteen polycyclic hydrocarbons considered priorities by the EPA, and hydroxylated derivatives, which have been less investigated in air samples by liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection. We have characterized and compared the concentration ranges of compounds identified and studied seasonal and monthly variations. In addition, the techniques have been applied to study multivariate correlations, factor analysis and cluster analysis to extract as much information as possible for interpretation and more complete and accurate characterization of the results and their relationship with meteorological parameters and physicochemical.

    In this work a methodology to investigate deep drawing quality steel sheets deformation tendency under multiaxial deep drawing stresses has been proposed. the method consists in assaying a sheet in a wedge die in order to order to introduce a pure shear estate in the material 0 degree centigree, 45 degree centigree and 90 degree centigree rolling directions are selected in the assays, and transversal strain is the variable considered in them. a strain coefficient 0/% has been defined in order to evaluate thickness variations in the test. almost no changes in thickness have been registered and this indicates that strain carried out in the test is similar to that taking place in deep drawing. The stress necessary for practice a certain plastic deformation is obtained too and a potential function between them is formulated. Indicators presented in this work are compared to anisotropy and strength coefficients obtained in normalized tensile tests. these results allow us to justify the steel behaviour in the cup deep drawing processes related to ear forming.

    According to the Mexican General Law of the Ecological Equilibrium and Environmental Protection, issued by the National Institute of Ecology, some chemicals such as acrylonitrile, methyl ethyl ketone, carbon disulfide, and isobutanol must be monitored in industrial residues because of their toxicity. This report describes an analytical method for the simultaneous determination of these four analytes in leachates. A purge and trap concentrator coupled to a computerized gas-chromatograph-mass selective detector was used to achieve the analysis. Quantitation measurements were based on the internal standardization method, using the area ratios of the molecular ions of the analytes and the internal standard obtained by deconvolution of the data. The scope of this method as well as the validation data is reported. The method is reliable in spite of the fact that, in some cases, the analytes or the standard coeluted with other compounds of the samples. Because the data acquisition is carried out in the scan mode it is possible to detect and identify other substances in the samples. (Author)

    The determination of small quantities of iron using o-phenanthroline, assumes the elimination of some cations interference by means of pH control before the formation of a coloured complex. We have eluded that difficulty by the connected action of complexones III and ion exchange. the previous forms quelate with the iron (III) with a stability constant high enough to permit the pass of an iron solution through a cation resin column without being fixed which never occurs with the interferer cations. Mercury is the only element with a similar stability, but it has been eliminated previously. (Author) 16 refs.

    The kinetics of damage induction and repair at different doses as well as the adaptive response induced by gamma ray exposure were determined in murine leukocytes in vivo. The damage-repair kinetics were established after the exposure to 0.5, 1.0 or 2.0 Gy in a {sup 137}Cs source. Peripheral blood samples were obtained from the tails of mice, the percentage of damaged cells and the DNA migration in each one were analyzed by the single cell gel electrophoresis (SCG) technique or comet assay. Results indicated that there was an induction of approximately 75% comets with the doses of 1.0 and 2.0 Gy, which was considerably reduced to 22% and 42% respectively during the first 15 minutes. This evidences the presence of a rapid repair process and suggests that leucocytes are genetically well prepared to repair this kind of damage. After 15 minutes, a second increase in the percentage of damaged cells that was proportional to dose occurred, which seems to represent the breaks produced during the repair of other kind of lesions. After that a second reduction was observed, reaching values near to the basal ones, except with the dose of 2.0 Gy. The kinetics obtained with the dose of 0.5 Gy was similar to that established with 1.0 Gy, but in this case the initial damage was 50 % lower. Besides, the adaptive response was observed after the exposure of the mice to an adaptive dose of 0.01 Gy and to a challenge dose of 1.0 Gy 60 minutes later. The pretreatment reduced the percentage of damaged cells caused by the challenge dose to one third approximately, and also diminished this parameter produced during the late repair process. This indicates that the early adaptive response is caused, instead of by an increment in repair, by the induction of a process that protects DNA from damage induction by radiation, i.e synthesis of substances that increase the scavenging of free radicals.

    A polarographic method is described for the iodine species determination, iodide and iodate in water solutions. the iodate can be determined by differential pulse polarography. Calibration curves and the detection and determination limits have been obtained. Iodides is oxidized to iodate with sodium hypochlorite and the excess of oxidizing agent is destroyed with sodium sulphide. The concentration of iodide is calculated as the difference between the concentration of iodate in the sample before and after the oxidation. As an application, species of iodine in samples coming from the experimental plants GIRS (Gaseous Iodine Removal by Sprays) of Nuclear Fission Department of the CIEMAT, dedicated to fission products containment studies in nuclear power station, were determined.

    The Alhama de Murcia Fault (AMF) is a compound multi-segmented oblique left-lateral fault system. The AMF is one the longest faults in the Eastern Betics Shear zone (Southeastern Spain). In the last decades its seismogenic potential has been carefully evaluated based on paleoseismological data. On May 11{sup t}h, 2011 a moderate (Mw 5.1) earthquake shook the region, causing nine casualties and severe damage in Lorca city (Murcia region). The early reported location of the aftershock sequence did not draw any particular trend; furthermore in-situ geology surveys did not identify any surface coseismic slip-related ground deformation. In order to provide better seismic hazard assessments, we need to locate and, if possible, characterize the fault-slip distribution that generated this earthquake. In this work, we detected small but significant ground deformation close to the epicentral area of the Lorca earthquake by using geodetic (satellite radar interferometry and GPS) data. Geodetic data was processed by using a stack of differential radar interferograms (corrected for a known long-term subsidence contribution), daily GPS estimated coordinates and high-rate 1-Hz GPS data. We jointly inverted the detected static coseismic displacements for the fault plane geometry parameters by using a rectangular dislocation model embedded in a homogeneous elastic half-space. The best-fitting fault plane closely follows the geologically derived AMF geometry (NE-SW strike trend and dipping {approx}70 degree centigrade to NW). Later, the obtained model geometry was extended and divided into patches to allow for a detailed analysis of the fault slip distribution pattern. Slip distribution indicates that slip occurred in a main patch 4-5 km long with reverse and left lateral motion (with peak fault slip magnitude of {approx}20 cm). However, the modelling results also indicate that fault slip occurred close to the surface along the centre and southwest of the city of Lorca. The shallower character of the slip and the effect of a finite dynamic rupture fault arrest probably caused the relatively intense ground acceleration recorded in the city of Lorca ({approx}0.4g) and increased the building damage. This study also represents the first modern geodetic ally observed ground deformation signature due to seismic activity in the Iberian Peninsula. (Author) 33 refs.

    The behavior of lanthanum (III), praseodymium (III), and lutetium (III) was studied in 2 M NaClO{sub 4} (aq) and 2 M NaCl (aq) at 303 K and free -CO{sub 2} conditions. Solubility diagrams (p Ln(aq)-pC{sub H}) were obtained by means of a radiochemical method. The pC{sub H} borderlines of saturation and unsaturation zones of the solutions and solubility product constants for Ln(OH){sub 3} were determined from these diagrams. The fitting of the solubility equation to the experimental values of p Ln(aq)-pC{sub H} diagrams allowed the calculation of the first hydrolysis and solubility product constants. Independently, the stability constants for the first species of hydrolysis were determined by means of pH titrations, the data were treated with the program SUPERQUAD and fitted to the mean ligand number equation. The stability constants for the species LnCl{sup 2+} were as well calculated in 2M ionic strength and 303 K from the hydrolysis constant values obtained in both perchlorate and chloride media.

    Full Text Available The classic risk factors for developing coronary heart disease (CHD explain less than 50% of the decrease in mortality observed since 1950. The transition currently under way, from the degenerative to the infectious-inflammatory paradigm, requires a new causal interpretation of temporal trends. The following is an ecological study based on data from the United States showing that in men and women an association between the age distribution of mortality due to influenza and pneumonia (I&P associated with the influenza pandemic in 1918-1919 in the 10-49-year age bracket and the distribution of CHD mortality from 1920 to 1985 in survivors from the corresponding birth cohorts. It further shows a significant negative correlation (r = -0.68, p = 0.042 between excess mortality from I&P accumulated in epidemics from 1931 to 1940 (used as indicator for persistent circulation of H1N1 virus combined with vulnerability to infection and the order of the beginning in the decline in CHD mortality in nine geographic divisions in the United States. In light of current biological knowledge, the data suggest that the 1918 influenza pandemic and the subsequent epidemics up to 1957 might have played a determinant role in the epidemic of CHD mortality registered in the 20th century.Os fatores de risco clássicos para o desenvolvimento de doença isquêmica do coração (DIC explicam menos de 50% da queda na mortalidade observada desde 1950. A transição em curso, do paradigma degenerativo para o inflamatório/infeccioso, requer nova interpretação causal das tendências temporais. Este é um estudo ecológico, baseado em dados dos Estados Unidos, que mostra, em homens e mulheres, uma associação entre a distribuição etária da mortalidade por influenza e pneumonia (I&P associada à pandemia de influenza de 1918-1919 na faixa dos 10 aos 49 anos e a distribuição da mortalidade por DIC, entre 1920 e 1985, em sobreviventes das coortes de nascimento correspondentes. Mostra ainda uma correlação negativa significativa (r = -0,68, p = 0,042 entre o excesso de mortalidade por I&P acumulado em epidemias entre 1931-1940 (utilizado como indicador da persistência da circulação de vírus H1N1 aliada à vulnerabilidade à infecção e a ordem do início do declínio na mortalidade por DIC, em nove divisões geográficas dos Estados Unidos. Os dados sugerem, à luz do conhecimento biológico atual, que a pandemia de influenza de 1918 e as que se seguiram até 1957, pudesse ter tido papel determinante na epidemia de mortalidade por DIC registrada no século XX.

    1988-03-01

    Full Text Available Un grupo de 12 pacientes con cifras elevadas de plombemia y disminuidas de ALA D fueron estudiados electrofisiológicamente. Se efectuaron las siguientes determinaciones: amplitud de potencial evocado muscular; latencia distal motora; velocidad de conducción motora en los nervios mediano, ciático poplíteo externo y radial; velocidad de conducción sensitiva y amplitud del potencial evocado sensitivo de nervio en el mediano; exploración electromiográfica convencional; estudio de la transmisión neuromuscular, mediante estimulación repetitiva del nervio ciático popliteo externo a diversas frecuencias, con registro de la amplitud del potencial en músculo tibial anterior. Los datos obtenidos fueron comparados con controles. Se buscaron correlaciones entre las determinaciones bioquímicas y los diferentes hallazgos electrofisiológicos que a su vez se correlacionaron entre si y también con el tiempo de evolución de la intoxicación. Los hallazgos pusieron de manifiesto la presencia de neuropatía axonal junto a moderada desmielinización. La exploración de la transmisión neuromuscular mostró ocasional decremento o incremento de la amplitud del potencial muscular evocado, hechos que suponen cierta participación de la unión neuromuscular. Se halló correlación solamente entre disminución de ALA D y la disminución de las amplitudes del potencial sensitivo del mediano y el evocado muscular del mismo nervio y con la disminución de la VCM del nervio radial. Una débil relación se observó entre el tiempo de exposición y la disminución de la VCS del nervio mediano y VCM del radial. Las determinaciones bioquímicas y el tiempo de exposición transcurridos no probaron ser parámetros sensibles para determinar el grado de afectación del sistema nervioso periférico. El conjunto do hallazgos sugiere que el desarrollo de la neuropatía puede estar ligado a factores individuales de predisposición al daño nervioso.

O teste de vasorreatividade pulmonar é indicado para definir a melhor opção terapêutica. Muitas drogas têm sido utilizadas para a realização desse teste, sendo o óxido nítrico inalado a melhor opção, por apresentar ação específica pulmonar e meia vida muita curta (5-10 s. O resultado desse teste identifica candidatos à cirurgia cardíaca nas cardiopatias congênitas e candidatos ao uso de antagonista de cálcio nas outras formas de hipertensão pulmonar. A realização e interpretação do teste de vasorreatividade pulmonar exigem grande responsabilidade, e erros podem levar a decisões erradas e à ocorrência de óbitos.Pulmonary arterial hypertension is classified as idiopathic or secondary (associated with collagenoses, heart disease, portal hypertension, pulmonary thromboembolism, and pulmonary vascular diseases. Pulmonary vasoreactivity should be tested in order to define the best treatment option. Of the many drugs that have been used to test pulmonary vasoreactivity, inhaled nitric oxide is the best choice, due its specific pulmonary effect and very short half-life (5-10 s. The results of this test identify candidates for heart surgery among patients with congenital heart disease and candidates for the use of calcium antagonists among patients with other forms of pulmonary hypertension. Performing and interpreting the results of such tests are a great responsibility, since mistakes can lead to incorrect treatment decisions, resulting in the death of patients.

    Salvadori, P. [Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Istituto di Fisiologia Clinica, Chimica e Radiofarmaceutica, Gruppo PET/Ciclotrone, Pisa (Italy)

    2001-07-01

    Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a new imaging modality, which is able to assess non-invasively the biochemical mechanisms, underlying physiological and pathophysiological processes in vivo in humans. The technique relies on the administration of radioactive tracers labeled with short-lived positron emitters, which need to be produced on site via a particle accelerator (cyclotron). Radionuclides are produced upon request and formulated into biologically active organic molecules having precise pharmacokinetics and specificity. The radiotracer can be detected by the PET scanner and represented as tomographic sections (images of body sections) showing its regional distribution and concentration. This makes it possible to address clinical questions concerning occurrence and evolution of many diseases as well as their response to therapy. The ability to image (measure) biological processes and not only anatomy enables PET to explore diseases in the very early stage, including those diseases which are not related to modifications of organ structure (e.g. psychiatric diseases, metabolic disorders, biochemical disfunction). PET plays a major role, in conjunction with the other imaging modalities, to improve diagnosis capabilities and disease mechanism understanding. [Italian] La PET e' correntemente utilizzata come efficace strumento clinico, per l'elevata sensibilita' e specificita', nella valutazione dell'iter diagnostico di pazienti con sospetta cardiopatia ischemica e nel processo di decision making clinico di pazienti con disfunzione ventricolare sinistra e cardiopatia ischemica, in quanto metodica di riferimento per la diagnosi di vitalita' miocardica.

Comments also made on the uncertainties of its assessment and the way it considers to follow to continue with the works that take to conclude at 100% the assessment of the national potential in the near future, since apparently in Mexico a little more of 2% of such potential has been only developed. One knows that in other countries in the last ten years, an accelerated development of this power source with satisfactory results has been obtained. [Spanish] En este documento se presenta una discusion sobre el potencial denominado pequeno, mini o micro hidraulico con que cuenta el pais con el objeto de proceder a su desarrollo o explotacion. El uso de la hidroenergia en pequena escala es posible tanto para el auto abasto industrial como para actividades productivas en el medio rural. Se comenta tambien sobre las incertidumbres de su determinacion y se plantea el camino a seguir para continuar con los trabajos que lleven a concluir al 100% la determinacion del potencial nacional en el futuro cercano, ya que al parecer en Mexico solo se ha desarrollado un poco mas del 2% de dicho potencial. Se sabe que en otros paises en los ultimos diez anos, se ha logrado un acelerado desarrollo de esta fuente energetica con resultados satisfactorios.

    Full Text Available Se analiza la extinción atmosférica de San Pedro Mártir (SPM utilizando determinaciones en 13 colores de 294 noches de observación durante los años de 1973{1983, además de mediciones de extinción para 272 noches de observación en uvby durante los años 1984{1999. Se obtiene el comportamiento general de la extinción normal en SPM, y se analiza éste como función de la longitud de onda y del tiempo; se aportan valores promedio y mínimos para esta extinción. La extinción atmosférica promedio en SPM, excluyendo erupciones volcánicas, no cambió apreciablemente durante el período 1973{1999. Se presenta un modelo sencillo, de tres componentes, para la extinción en SPM. Los aerosoles normales, promedio, no volcánicos sobre SPM se ajustan bien por kp = 0:0254 0:87. Se presentan las determinaciones de la extinción para los períodos que siguieron a las erupciones de los volcanes de El Chichón y el Pinatubo: los datos en 13 colores muestran los efectos de El Chichón, y los datos uvby los del Pinatubo. Se analizan las curvas de extinción y sus variaciones para estudiar los aerosoles volcánicos y su evolución en el tiempo. Se estudia también la temporada de observación de abril y mayo de 1998, en la cual ocurrieron grandes variaciones no volcánicas en la extinción, y se presentan deducciones sobre estos aerosoles inusuales.

    Full Text Available La fibrosis quística (FQ es una de las enfermedades genéticas mortales más frecuentes en la raza caucásica. Se caracteriza por una disfunción de las glándulas exocrinas, con insuficiencia pancreática y bronconeumopatía crónica. Es una enfermedad de transmisión autonómica recesiva, se sabe que el gen defectuoso está localizado en el cromosoma 7 humano, conocido como gen regulador de la conductancia transmembrana de la fibrosis quística (CFTR,y que de las más de mil mutaciones de este gen, la mutación DF508 es la más común, pues se halla en aproximadamente 70% de los alelos CFTR defectuosos. El diagnóstico de la FQ se ha basado clásicamente en la determinación de por lo menos 2-3 determinaciones positivas de electrólitos en sudor, junto con uno de los siguientes criterios clínicos: íleo meconial, historia familiar de FQ, insuficiencia pancreática exocrina, enfermedad pulmonar crónica, azoospermia obstructiva y síndrome de pérdida de sal. Los criterios diagnósticos actuales incluyen, junto a la presencia de las características clínicas, dos determinaciones de concentraciones de cloro en sudor superior a 60 mmol/l, o demostración de alteraciones en el transporte iónico a través del epitelio nasal (diferencia de potencial nasal o la detección de dos mutaciones reconocidas de FQ.

    Full Text Available Este proyecto tiene por objeto realizar una determinación de metales pesados (Pb, Cd, Cr, Zn y sales solubles de Na, K, Mg y Ca en suelos de cultivo del rancho "La Xaropa" acondicionados con lodos residuales de la Planta de Tratamiento Municipal de Aguascalientes. De la misma manera realizar las mismas determinaciones en tierras de cultivo que no han sido reactivadas con lodos, esto es con el propósito de comparar dos condiciones diferentes. Es importante conocer la presencia de metales pesados porque son tóxicos para los organismos, ya que alteran su metabolismo y pueden provocar su muerte. Los metales pesados, pueden pasar de la tierra hacia el organismo del hombre, a través de la cadena alimenticia provocando graves problemas de salud. La utilización de los lodos puede contribuir a aumentar la salinidad del mismo y disminuir su fertilidad. Las determinaciones se llevaron a cabo utilizando el método espectrofotométrico de absorción atómica. Los resultados muestran que se encontró un incremento en el contenido de cromo y zinc. En tierras de cultivo sin lodos adicionados se encontraron 627.43 Kg/ha y en las tierras acondicionadas con lodos 780. 95 Kg/ ha. Los resultados de zinc en tierras sin lodo adicionado muestran 394.27 Kg/ha. Y en tierras con lodos 398. 1 1 K/ha. Los resultados de la determinación de sales solubles también muestran incremento en la concentración de las mismas.

    Full Text Available Fundaments: Within the restricted field of the patients' psychological environment, anxiety and depression seem ti play an important role although it is still pending how to clear it up definitely in the case of ischemic cardiopathy and coronary diseases. However, it isostensible that the patients who suffer from cardiovascular diseases frequently present psychological disorders, mainly emotional ones. Objective: To assess the effectiveness of a system of psychotherapy influences in patients with cardiovasular diseases. Method: Intervention study witha cuasi experimental design in patients with cardiovascular urgencies hospitalized at the Integral Care Unit of the Heart of the ¨Dr. Gustavo A. Lima¨ Hospital from June 1st 2002 to june 1st 2003 and who received relaxing, stimulating and sleeping treatment. Psychological and physiological modifications were assessed after having received treatment with these psychological techniques. Result: Acute Myocardial infarction and Angina pectoris were the most common causes of admission. The variation of respiratory and cardiac frequency as well as blood pressure tend tomaintain, diminish or keep normal values. The psychological state of the patient was favoured after treatment. Conclusion: The effect of the system of psychotherapy influences were beneficial both organically and psychologically.
    Fundamento: Dentro del campo estricto del entorno psicológico de los pacientes, la ansiedad y la depresión parecen jugar un papel importante, aunque todavía queda por dilucidar de forma definitiva en el determinismo de la cardiopatía isquemica y las enfermedades coronarias, sin embargo, es ostensible que los pacientes portadores de enfermedades cardiovasculares presenten con marcada frecuencia alteraciones de índole psicológica, fundamentalmente alteraciones emocionales.

Os autores não encontraram no material estudado em Bambuí casos classificaveis como forma nervosa crônica. 3 - Apresentam evidências de ordem clínica e experimental que justificam admitir-se a cardiopatia crônica da doença de Chagas como entidade clinica definida. 4 - As manifestações da infecção aguda são estudadas à luz da experiência adquirida com os 103 casos agudos diagnosticados em Bambuí. Dois tipos de fenômenos edematosos podem ocorrer em pacientes com esquizotripanose aguda: o edema local, de porta de entrada do parasito, e o edema generalizado (o chamado "mixedema". A patogenia dêste último é revista e sugere-se que ele seja devido a uma hipoproteinemia. O edema local parece de natureza inflamatória. As manifestações da cardiopatia aguda da doença de Chagas são descritas. Ritmo de galope, aumento da area cardíaca (em alguns casos devido a transudato pericárdico, prolongamento do espaço P-R, alterações primárias da onda T e extra-sístoles ventriculares - constituem os sinais mais importantes para o diagnóstico da cardiopatia aguda. Bloqueio de ramo direito foi encontrado em três casos fatais de cardiopatia aguda, um dos quais apresentou também pronunciado desnivelamento de ST (padrão de injúria. A morte durante a infecção aguda é usualmente precedida por manifestações convulsivas. Na maioria dos casos as manifestações, da infec

    Full Text Available Um estudo da morbidade através de exames clínicos, eletrocardiográficos, radiológicos, sorológicos, xenodiagnósticos e outros exames laboratoriais seriados, foi feito em 510 pacientes com sorologia positiva para doença de Chagas, procedentes de vários Estados do Brasil e observados no Rio de Janeiro a partir de 1960. Os pacientes foram classificados, de acordo com a forma clínica, em assintomáticos (forma indeterminada, cardíacos, portadores de "megas" ou com formas clínicas associadas. Foi observada uma prevalência de cardiopatia em 52,1% dos pacientes, de "megas" em 14,3% e de associação entre cardiopatia e "megas" em 10,7% e entre megaesôfago e megacolon em 10,9% dos casos. A forma indeterminada (assintomática foi observada em 39% dos pacientes. A proporção de casos de cardiopatia aumentou progressivamente da 1ª a 5ª décadas de vida, enquanto a dos "megas" continuou aumentando até a 7ª década. Entretanto, em número de casos o pico de ambas as formas ocorreu na 4ª década. Não houve diferenças significativas de formas clínicas com relação ao sexo, apesar de uma discreta predominância de cardiopatia no sexo masculino e de "megas" no sexo feminino. Com relação à raça, entre os pacientes classificados como brancos, pretos e mestiços, não foi possível determinar a significância entre as diversas formas clínicas, por desconhecimento da constituição do universo da procedência de cada paciente. Embora o reduzido número de casos não possa ser considerado como representativo da prevalência das fomas clínicas nas regiões de origem dos pacientes, tomando-se os quatro Estados representados com maior número de casos, verificou-se que as proporções de cardiopatia e "megas" foram respectivamente de 65,7 e 20,1% nos casos procedentes da Bahia, de 55,7 e 14,7% nos de Minas Gerais, de 50,9 e 15% nos de Pernambuco e de 23,3 e 0% nos procedentes da Paraíba.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: Mortalidade hospitalar na cirurgia de reconstrução da via de saída do ventrículo direito com homoenxerto pulmonar é variável. OBJETIVOS: Identificar os fatores de risco associados à mortalidade hospitalar e ao perfil clínico dos pacientes. MÉTODOS: Estudo de crianças submetidas à reconstrução da via de saída do ventrículo direito com homoenxerto pulmonar. Analisados como fatores de risco as variáveis clínicas, cirúrgicas e de aspectos morfológicos da prótese. RESULTADOS: Noventa e dois pacientes foram operados entre 1998 e 2005, apresentando principalmente atresia pulmonar com comunicação interventricular e a tetralogia de Fallot. Quarenta pacientes foram atendidos no primeiro mês de vida. Necessitaram de 38 cirurgias de Blalock Taussig devido à gravidade clínica. A idade mediana na cirurgia de correção total foi de 22 meses, variando de 1 mês a 157 meses. O tamanho homoenxerto pulmonar variou de 12 a 26 mm e o tempo de extracorpórea foi 132 ± 37 minutos. Após a cirurgia houve 17 óbitos (18% casos, em média 10,5 ± 7,5 dias após. A causa predominante foi falência de múltiplos órgãos. Na análise univariada entre os tipos de cardiopatia, estas deferiram na idade, momento da cirurgia, tamanho do homoenxerto, valor Z da valva pulmonar, tempo de circulação extracorpórea, manutenção da integridade do homoenxerto e alteração da árvore pulmonar. Não houve diferença estatística com relação à mortalidade hospitalar entre as variáveis e o tipo de cardiopatia. CONCLUSÃO: As cardiopatias obstrutivas do lado direito necessitam de atendimento cirúrgico nos primeiros dias de vida. A cirurgia de correção total apresenta risco de mortalidade de 18%, mas não houve associação com nenhuma variável estudada.BACKGROUND: Hospital mortality for surgical reconstruction of the outflow of the right ventricle with pulmonary homograft is variable.

MÉTODOS: A amostra foi composta por 33 indivíduos, todos atendidos em um mesmo centro, no período de janeiro de 1975 a dezembro de 2007. Vinte e dois deles eram do sexo masculino e 11 do feminino e suas idades variaram de 1 dia a 17 anos. Todos apresentavam avaliação cariotípica normal por bandas GTG. Realizou-se uma coleta de dados referentes à sua história clínica, exame físico e resultado de avaliações complementares. RESULTADOS: Anormalidades cardíacas foram observadas em 13 pacientes (39,4%. Dessas, cinco (38,5% eram do tipo conotruncal, sendo o principal defeito a tetralogia de Fallot (n=2. Malformações não usuais identificadas incluíram o cor triatriatum e a dupla via de entrada de ventrículo esquerdo. Diferenças significativas entre as características clínicas do grupo com e sem cardiopatia foram verificadas somente em relação à idade na primeira avaliação, que foi mais baixa naqueles com malformações cardíacas. Cinco indivíduos foram a óbito, quatro deles portadores desses defeitos. CONCLUSÃO: Malformações cardíacas, em especial dos tipos conotruncal e septal, são frequentes entre pacientes com EOAV. A frequência encontrada em nosso estudo foi estatisticamente similar à da maior parte dos trabalhos descritos na literatura, que oscila de 18% a 58%. As cardiopatias congênitas também representam a principal causa de óbito desses indivíduos. Portanto, uma avaliação cardiológica, especialmente precoce, deveria ser sempre realizada nesses pacientes.OBJECTIVE: To verify the frequency and types of congenital heart defects in a sample of patients with oculo-auriculo-vertebral spectrum (OAVS, in an effort to correlate presence of these

    Full Text Available A doença de Chagas é uma parasitose causada pelo protozoário Trypanosoma cruzi, transmitido por insetos triatomíneos. A doença ocorre desde o sul dos Estados Unidos da América do Norte até a Argentina, sendo que, aproximadamente, 14 milhões de pessoas devam estar infectados na América Latina, predominantemente na forma crônica da doença. A reagudização da doença de Chagas pode ocorrer em imunossuprimidos, como tem sido observado em pacientes com aids. Verificou-se descompensação cardíaca em um destes casos, com grave disfunção ventricular e arritmias sendo considerada a possibilidade de reagudização da doença de Chagas no miocárdio, uma vez que o xenodiagnóstico foi positivo. Face a gravidade foi tratado especificamente para o Trypanosoma cruzi com benznidazol, porém sem completar o tempo estipulado para este fim, vindo a falecer em conseqüência de complicações da cardiopatia. A necropsia apresentou os estigmas habituais da cardiopatia chagásica crônica como miocardite fibrosante e redução do número de neurônios no tubo digestório, não sendo encontradas formas amastigotas do Trypanosoma cruzi em nenhum dos tecidos examinados. Assim, não ficou demonstrada a reagudização da doença de Chagas, mas sim evolução natural da cardiopatia chagásica crônica.Chagas disease is a type of parasitosis caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi, and it is transmitted by triatomine insects. This disease is found between the southern United States to Argentina and approximately 14 million people in Latin America are believed to be infected, predominantly with the chronic form of the disease. Reactivation of Chagas disease can occur among immunosuppressed patients, as has been observed among AIDS patients. In one such case, we observed cardiac decompensation with severe ventricular dysfunction and arrhythmias. This case was thought to be reactivation of Chagas disease in the myocardium, since the xenodiagnosis was

    Full Text Available Os autores apresentam estudo sorológico e eletrocardiográfico em 100 indivíduos idosos residentes desde a infância, 95 por cento, ou desde a juventude, 5 por cento, em região endêmica para Doença de Chagas, situados entre a sexta e a décima décadas, pertencendo a maioria, 60 por cento, às sétima e oitava décadas de vida. A reação de Fixação de Complemento segundo a técnica de FULTON e ALMEIDA foi positiva em 31 por cento da amostra. A análise geral dos eletrocardiogramas mostrou alterações em 77 por cento dos casos assim distribuídos: alterações de formação do estímulo em 27 por cento; alterações da condução em 27 por cento; alterações primárias da repolarização ventricular em 36 por cento; alterações sugestivas de fibrose ou necrose em 15 por cento; sobrecarga de cavidades em 31 por cento; baixa voltagem do QRS em 6 por cento e outras alterações em 15 por cento. Comparativamente nos grupos com RFC positiva e negativa foi constatada uma nítida prevalência da alteração da condução do estímulo no primeiro grupo (48,6 por cento e 17,4 por cento, respectivmente. Não houve diferença nítida na incidência dos demais tipos de alterações nos dois grupos. O BCRD, principalmente com SAQRS desviado para a esquerda, foi a alteração da condução do estimulo mais freqüente no grupo com RFC positiva seguido pelo BAV de primeiro grau. A análise dos resultados obtidos é muito sugestiva da presença de cardiopatia chagásica crônica neste grupo etário, fato que ilustraria o caráter de benignidade com que pode evoluir a cardiopatia em pauta. Por outro lado, a prevalência do BCRD sôbre outras alterações também comuns na cardiopatia chagásica crônica como extrassístoles ventricular, bloqueio aurículo ventriculares do segundo e terceiro graus, ilustra o caráter de benignidade desta alteração quando ocorre isoladamente.

    Full Text Available Um estudo longitudinal clínico, radiológico e eletrocardiográfico do tipo caso-controle realizado no município de Virgem da Lapa, Minas Gerais, Brasil, com o acompanhamento de 124 chagásicos crônicos durante seis anos, revelou que 62,1% dos pacientes permaneceram com o quadro inicial inalterado, a maioria deles na forma indeterminada, 32,3% evoluíram com progressão da doença e 5,6% tiveram normalização do eletrocardiograma. Os resultados mencionados, quando comparados aos obtidos no grupo controle composto de pares não chagásicos da mesma idade e sexo, demonstraram uma progressão de 27,4% maior entre os pacientes com sorologia positiva, o que representa o excesso de risco ou componente exclusivamente chagásico na evolução da doença. Não houve diferença de progressão da doença em relação ao sexo, porém ela foi mais precoce e sete vezes mais freqüente em relação à cardiopatia do que ao megaesôfago, ambas ocorrendo na maioria das vezes em grau leve ou moderada. Em 192 chagásicos e 188 não chagásicos observados na área, no referido período, houve uma mortalidade 3,6 vezes maior entre os chagásicos, com uma letalidade pela cardiopatia de 8,9%, sem diferença entre os sexos, porém mais precoce no sexo masculino. A morte súbita foi mais freqüente do que a morte por insuficiência cardíaca. O prognóstico foi bom para os pacientes da forma indeterminada e digestiva e reservado para os casos de cardiopatia, principalmente os de graus mais elevados.In a clinical, radiological and electrocardiographical, follow-up study of the "case control" type performed in Virgem da Lapa, Minas Gerais State, Brazil, 124 chagasic patients were followed during six years.

Foi realizada uma pesquisa etnográfica baseada no instrumento de entrevista aberta, buscando identificar a percepção do estado de saúde de um grupo de 15 pacientes portadores de cardiopatia Chagásica crônica que necessitaram de implante de marcapasso, atendidos no Ambulatório de Marcapasso do Hospital das Clínicas da Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, em Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brasil. Utilizou-se o referencial da qualidade de vida para observar os recursos culturais, físicos e psicológicos que os pacientes utilizam para enfrentar, explicar e aceitar o processo de adoecimento, incluindo as representações mentais que constroem o sentido cultural da doença e definem as relações sociais. O estudo pretende contribuir para que os profissionais de saúde atendam seus pacientes em sua integralidade. A orientação decodificada e integrada no âmbito cultural assume um papel importante para evitar que a desinformação perpetue a difusão de mitos populares, que, por vezes, se tornam preconceitos e elementos sociais ativos de estigma do indivíduo portador de cardiopatia.This anthropological study aimed to evaluate the incorporation of pacemakers into the lives of individuals with Chagas disease. An ethnographic methodology was used, based on an open interview focusing on the personal perceptions of 15 patients with chronic Chagas cardiopathy who had required pacemaker implants at the Federal University Hospital in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. As part of a broader quality of life analysis, the study investigated the cultural, physical, and psychological resources used by patients to confront, explain, and accept the disease process, including mental representations on the cultural perception of the illness and definition of social relations.

MÉTODO: Foi realizada uma busca nas bases de dados ISI e Medline, com as palavras-chave: "heart disease", "coronary disease", "anxiety", "panic disorder" e "autonomic function". Foram selecionados os artigos publicados a partir de 1998. DISCUSSÃO: O padrão autonômico encontrado em pacientes com transtorno de pânico, em particular a redução da variabilidade cardíaca, é apontado como o provável fator mediador do impacto cardiovascular do transtorno de pânico. CONCLUSÕES: Apesar de a associação entre transtornos de ansiedade e doenças cardiovasculares estar atualmente bastante estabelecida, existem ainda diversas lacunas no estado atual do conhecimento. São recomendadas a terapia cognitivo-comportamental e a prática de exercícios físicos supervisionados como potenciais coadjuvantes na intervenção terapêutica.OBJECTIVE: Psychosocial stress and depression have already been established as risk factors for developing and worsening cardiovascular diseases. Anxiety disorders are been strongly associated to cardiac problems nowadays. Panic disorder in cardiac patients represents a challenge for diagnose and treatment.

    Similarly to other countries, ground water from Mexico is naturally polluted by fluoride. The main effects of fluoride at typical ground water concentrations are dental fluorosis, neurological deficits and reproductive disorders. In order to verify that the fluoride concentration is within the allowed guideline in Mexico (NOM 127 and 201), it is important to monitor fluoride levels in water and commercial beverages. The aim of this work is to develop a modification of the standard potentiometric method for fluoride determination in water, in order to reduce costs and amount of potentially toxic waste substances. Both methods were validated, the standard potentiometric method with the ion selective electrode and the microscale modification proposed in this paper. The methods were compared using statistic tests and graphics, followed by the comparison of 125 samples of commercial bottled water sold in the city of San Luis Potosi. Optimal results were obtained for the validation of both methods, and the microscale modification showed statistically identical results to those obtained with the standard method in all samples of bottled water. The microscale modification is a good alternative for fluoride assessment in water and beverages, and it represents a 95 % reduction of costs and chemical waste. [Spanish] En varios paises, incluido Mexico se presenta una contaminacion natural con fluoruro en agua subterranea; los principales efectos en la salud observados en poblacion expuesta a concentraciones mayores al valor permisible (que en Mexico es de 1.5 mg/L) son la fluorosis dental y esqueletica, asi como dano reproductivo y neurologico. En varios estados de la republica Mexicana, este problema es aun desconocido, de ahi la necesidad de evaluar las concentraciones de fluoruro en agua de consumo en varias comunidades. Asi, el objetivo de este trabajo es desarrollar un metodo a microescala para la determinacion de fluoruro en agua, que al reducir la cantidad de reactivo y

    Full Text Available Desde el día en que inicie el presente trabajo, apoyado por la amable circular que me proporcionó el Rector de la Facultad Nacional de Agronomía, el Jorge Gutiérrez, para dirigirme a diversos lugares del país en solitud de material que me sirviera para poner en práctica los diversos métodos que me fuere dado ejecutar, no tuve otro objetivo que el de reunir el mayor número posible de métodos, para hacer un análisis químico del suelo. Tenía el pleno convencimiento de que nada nuevo iba a aportar a las ciencias químicas, pero en cambio, como me lo sugirió el que más tarde designé como Presidente de Tesis, doctor Antonio Durán A., si podría compilar una serie de métodos explicados en un lenguaje tan sencillo, como en texto alguno pudiera presentarse. Entonces nació en mí el deseo de proporcionar a los estudiantes venideros un texto elemental sobre principios de análisis de algunos elementos de importancia agronómica, el cual no lo dudo me ha quedado defectuoso, pero estoy seguro que, el ser corregido por el Profesor respectivo, tendrá el valor a que yo aspiro. Con gran delicadeza he practicado los sistemas de análisis que anoto, procurándome así una experiencia que si es corta en realidad de verdad, si me permite diferenciar los diversos métodos de determinaciones, basado en la bondad de resultados verificados en muchas ocasiones. No creyendo tanto en la influencia del factor personal cuanto es la bondad del método, he resuelto acogerme hasta el conocimiento de nuevos y más eficientes, a los siguientes para las determinaciones de elementos, partiendo de soluciones clorhídricas.

    Full Text Available Paciente de 26 anos, sem cardiopatia estrutural, apresentando palpitações e pré-síncopes devido à taquicardia ventricular não sustentada, foi submetida a estudo eletrofisiológico para tentativa de ablação do foco arritmogênico, usando-se como local, os critérios de mapeamento. Sem obter êxito com o mapeamento da via de saída do ventrículo direito, posicionou-se o cateter dentro da artéria pulmonar com mapeamento de foco satisfatório, eliminando a taquicardia tão logo iniciada a radiofreqüência. Durante seguimento de 14 meses, a paciente permanece assintomática, sem arritmia ao Holter e não nessecitando de drogas antiarrítmicas.We report the case of a 26-year-old female patient with palpitations and presyncopes due to nonsustained ventricular tachycardia, who had no structural heart disease. The patient underwent electrophysiological study in an attempt to ablate the arrhythmogenic focus, whose location was determined by using mapping criteria. Because mapping of the right ventricular outflow tract was not successful, the catheter was placed inside the pulmonary artery with satisfactory mapping of the arrhythmogenic focus, and tachycardia was eliminated as soon as radiofrequency was initiated. The patient has remained asymptomatic for 14 months, with no treatment with antiarrhythmic drugs, and no arrhythmias on serial 24-hour Holter.

    Full Text Available Estudaram-se os atestados de pessoas falecidas no Estado de São Paulo, Brasil, em 1987, cuja causa básica foi a cardiopatia chagásica, com a finalidade de conhecer a informação adicional que está presente no atestado como "causa contributária". Foram analisadas as informações existentes em 1.308 Declarações de Óbito. As causas contributárias foram identificadas e registradas a partir de uma leitura direta do atestado. Foram identificadas 261 Declarações com causas contributárias (20%, sendo 185 com apenas uma causa registrada e 75 com duas. As seis primeiras causas foram: megas, embolias, doença pulmonar crônica, infecções (exceto doença de Chagas, hipertensão arterial e desnutrição. Analisando a presença das causas contributárias no subgrupo de menores de 50 anos e de 50 anos ou mais, constatou-se uma maior proporção no grupo mais idoso e um perfil diferenciado de causas em cada subgrupo. As causas contributárias não apresentaram associação com sexo e local de residência.

    The predicts of the patients with valvular heart disease it has improved substantially in the last 15 years.A better understanding of the appropriate programming of the surgery it is one of the key reasons .In general the surgery for the illness valvular stenosis it can take a long time until the appearance of the symptoms. Probably that in the future it progresses toward a conservation of the native valves in the patient.It will be beneficial because the valves modern prosthetic even have inherent risks .The aortic stenosis acquired it will follow requiring a valve prosthetic substitution .But the valvular disease it will be treated every time but by means of procedures that keep the native valves.They include the lung autograft for the aortic stenosis ,The balloonla commissurectomy with ball for the mitral stenosis ,the aortic valvular repair for aortic inadequacy .This procedures will make that the surgery is but attractive eliminating the risks associated with the prosthetics.The continuous advances in the valuation non invasive of the aortic and mitral valves, the of the appropriate selection moment for the derivation for surgical treatment, the improves of the surgical techniques for the valvular substitution and reconstruction and the very recent advances in less aggressive surgical focuses they should combine to improve the patients' perspectives with cardiopatia valvular

    Full Text Available Fístulas das artérias coronárias têm incidência baixa entre as cardiopatias congênitas, muitas vezes assintomáticas, devendo ser suspeitadas quando há presença de sopro contínuo no precórdio. Podem apresentar sintomas de precordialgia ou insuficiência cardíaca e devem ser estudadas adequadamente para tratamento seguro, tanto cirúrgico como por cateterismo ou acompanhamento clínico. No presente trabalho são relatados três casos tratados por operação com resultado satisfatório e a literatura é revisada.Coronary arteries fistulas have low incidence on the congenital heart defects, many times they are assymptomatic, and have to be suspected when continuous cardiac murmur is present. The symptoms can be precordial pain or cardiac failure and they must be studied correctly to a save surgical management or clinic treatment. In this paper are related three cases surgically treated with good results and literature review.

  20. β2-agonista de longa duração na doença pulmonar obstrutiva crônica (DPOC

    Full Text Available No paciente com DPOC, os β2-agonistas de longa duração são capazes de produzir broncodilatação de intensidade semelhante à dos anticolinérgicos, mas, devido a sua propriedade lipofílica, a ação se prolonga por um período até 12 horas após a sua administração. Estudos comparativos entre salmeterol e formoterol sugerem eqüipotência entre 50mcg de salmeterol e 24 ou 12mcg de formoterol quando este é administrado respectivamente através do aerossol dosimetrado ou turbuhaler. É preciso considerar o tipo de inalador para se estabelecer a eqüipotência entre os dois agentes. Até mesmo pacientes com DPOC e cardiopatia associada podem fazer uso dos β2-agonistas de longa duração com segurança. O salmeterol, por ser agonista parcial, é mais seguro nesses casos de maior risco. A terapia broncodilatadora escalonada na DPOC pode ser revista. Brometo de tiotrópio é um novo anticolinérgico cuja ação pode se prolongar por mais de 1-3 dias e talvez seja o novo broncodilatador mais promissor na DPOC
