    Intracraneal bleeding is a rare complication after raquis surgery. It is believed to occur as a drop in the intracraneal pressure after a loss of CSF secondary to an iatrogenic dural tear. We report a patient who after surgery for lumbar stenosis presented a subarachnoid haemorrhage, an intraparenchymal haematoma, and a subdural haematoma. To our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature with such complications after this type of surgery. Copyright © 2017 SECOT. Publicado por Elsevier España, S.L.U. All rights reserved.

    Three different grades of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis can be identified by HRCT pattern. Patients with predominant ground-glass opacity (grade 1) usually improve after treatment and may have a better prognosis. The subjects with a predominant reticular pattern and honeycombing (grade 3.) have irreversible fibrosis and usually do not improve after immunosuppressive therapy. Nevertheless, these patients may worsen even in the absence of HRCT features of the so-called alveolitis. The aim of this report is to investigate the predictive role of some noninvasive imaging methods (HRCT with visual score of disease extent; Gallium scintigraphy; DTPA scintigraphy) in patients with idiopathic fibrosis and a prevalent macroscopic fibrosis at HRCT study. [Italian] La fibrosi polomare idiopatica viene distinta in 3 gradi con diversa prognosi in base alla predominanza di opacita' a vetro smerigliato da alveolite o di fibrosi irreversibile. La fibrosi irreversibile tuttavia non e' necessariamente una situazione stabile ma puo progredire ed evolvere ulteriormente. In particolare i pazienti che gia all'esordio presentano solo i segni della fibrosi possono peggiorare a distanza di tempo nonostante la terapia. Scopo del lavoro e' stato quello di individuare in un gruppo di pazienti con prevalente fibrosi macroscopica quale possa essere un parametro preditivo della successiva evoluzione della malattia.

    Resumen IntroducciÓn: El papiloma invertido es una neoplasia benigna de los senos paranasales localmente agresiva con alto potencial de recurrencia y de malignización. La extensión intracraneal es infrecuente y más aún, la penetración dural, asociándose a menudo a la recurrencia de la enfermedad o a su degeneración en carcinoma de células escamosas. Caso clínico: Presentamos el caso de una paciente de 32 años que consultó por lesión exofítica en fosa nasal derecha y exoftalmos, asociada a cefalea, anosmia y disgeusia. Se estudió con TC cerebro, macizo facial y RM de encéfalo que evidencian lesión en fosa nasal derecha con ocupación de senos aéreos, osteólisis de pared medial orbitaria y base de cráneo anterior e invasión intracraneal frontal derecha, con efecto de masa y compresión del parénquima encefálico adyacente. Intervención: Se realizó una nasofibroscopía en primer tiempo con diagnóstico anatomopatológico de papiloma invertido y posteriormente resección de la lesión mediante doble abordaje más reconstrucción de la fosa craneal anterior. Se obtuvo diagnóstico definitivo de papiloma invertido de tipo Schneideriano con áreas de transformación atípica in situ. La paciente evolucionó de forma favorable y sin complicaciones, con permeabilidad de vía aérea superior, sin signos de recidiva lesional luego de 4 años de seguimiento. Conclusión: La invasión intracraneal de esta patología es sumamente infrecuente. Cuando existe, es indicador de agresividad y potencial recidiva, por lo que la exéresis completa de la misma define el pronóstico de la enfermedad. PMID:29430328

    Full Text Available This article presents an analysis of blood flow patterns in intracranial saccular aneurysm and the effects of the shape and porosity of the stents used in endovascular treatments. In this study will be used the flow reduction criteria for characterizing the efficiency of the stent. The hemodynamic properties of a newtonian blood flow into the aneurysm will be evaluated using the Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM. Porosity values and stent forms are proposed for analysis. In all stent cases analyzed is observed a reduction of velocity and pressure and an increase in viscosity. It is further noted that the rectangular contour stent is the optimal case and reduces the magnitude of the flow velocity inside the aneurysm much as 76%. The results help to understand the role of porosity in the form and design of a stent.En este artículo se presenta un analísis de los patrones de flujo sanguíneo en un aneurisma sacular intracraneal y los efectos de la forma y la porosidad de los stents empleados en tratamientos endovasculares. En este estudio se empleará el criterio de reducción del flujo para caracterizar la eficiencia del stent. Se evaluarán las propiedades hemodinámicas de un flujo sanguíneo newtoniano dentro del aneurisma a partir del método de Lattice Boltzmann (LBM. Se proponen algunos valores de porosidad y forma de stent para el análisis. En todos los casos de stent analizados se observa una reducción de velocidades y presiones y un aumento de viscosidad. Se observa además que el stent de contorno rectangular es el caso óptimo y reduce la magnitud de la velocidad del flujo en el interior del aneurisma hasta en un 76 %. Los resultados obtenidos ayudan a entender el papel de la forma y porosidad en el diseño de un stent.

Caso clínico: Presentamos un nuevo caso clínico de enfermedad por depósito de cristales de pirofosfato cálcico deshidratado (EDCPCD con afectación de la ATM e invasión intracraneal. Se trata de una artropatía microcristalina que comparte características clínicas con la condromatosis sinovial. Se exponen los aspectos claves relativos al diagnóstico y el tratamiento de dicha patología. Discusión: Los tumores que más frecuentemente afectan la ATM son las metástasis de tumores malignos. Entre las lesiones tumorales-seudotumorales que se originan directamente de la membrana sinovial se encuentran la condromatosis sinovial, la sinovitis villo-nodular, el sarcoma sinovial, la gota tofácea y la EDCPCD. Esta última es relativamente común en edades avanzadas, particularmente en la rodilla. El análisis de los cristales es esencial para establecer un diagnóstico de certeza. El tratamiento es eminentemente quirúrgico. Conclusiones: La EDCPCD en la ATM es extremadamente rara. Las masas tumorales que surgen como tumores primarios en la ATM representan un problema diagnóstico desafiante. La variada presentación de estas lesiones a menudo enmascara la patología de base y conlleva su retraso en el diagnóstico.Introduction: The human temporomandibular joint (TMJ is the structural complex that supports the functional and anatomic relations between the temporal bone and mandible.

    Full Text Available La hipertensión arterial (HTA dependiente de mineralocorticoides representa actualmente una de las formas secundarias de hipertensión de mayor prevalencia. Entre las causas más prevalentes está el hiperaldosteronismo primario (HAP cuya prevalencia es cercana al 10% de la población de hipertensos. El HAP se detecta principalmente por una elevación de la razón aldosterona a actividad renina plasmática (ARR, ya que la hipokalemia es infrecuente de encontrar. La fisiopatología del HAP se presenta como un desequilibrio en el control electrolítico a nivel renal, por mayor actividad del receptor mineralocorticoides (MR, lo cual aumenta el volumen intravascular y la presión arterial. Recientemente se ha demostrado también que el exceso de aldosterona afecta también el endotelio vascular, el tejido cardiaco entre otros. Este exceso puede ser por una alteración a nivel de la glándula suprarrenal (generalmente hiperplasia o adenoma o formas genéticas (familiares. Por otra parte, alteraciones parciales o totales de la enzima 11β-Hidroxiesteroide deshidrogenasa tipo 2 (11β-HSD2 resulta en una metabolización total o parcial de cortisol, imitando los efectos de aldosterona sobre MR. La actividad de esta enzima se evalúa midiendo la razón cortisol a cortisona en suero por HPLC-MS/MS. La prevalencia de alteraciones parciales de la actividad de la enzima 11β-HSD2 en estudios de cohorte alcanza en alrededor del 15% en población hipertensa. El diagnóstico del HAP o deficiencias de 11BHSD2, permitiría un tratamiento específico del cuadro hipertensivo mediantes el uso de bloqueadores del receptor mineralocorticoideo y/o uso de corticoides de acción prolongada sin actividad mineralocorticoidea como dexametasona o betametasona.

    Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were used to examine three male siblings with nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI). The two elder brothers had varying degrees of unusual intracranial calcification; the eldest also showed involvement of the cerebral white matter on MRI. The severity of intracranial calcification was related to the time before initiation of treatment and inversely to mental ability. Brain damage and mental retardation in NDI may be caused by a delay in initiating treatment; early detection and treatment are important to prevent brain damage. (orig.)

    Physical exercise (PE) is effective in the treatment and prevention of hypertension associated with improved lipid profile and cardiac contractile function. Regular and moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages such as red wine brings a cardiovascular protective effect. Beverage-derived polyphenols have antioxidant properties benefiting blood vessels. There is little evidence on the consumption of red wine associated with PE and the influences on the cardiovascular system. To investigate the effect of physical exercise (PE) and moderate red wine intake interaction on systolic blood pressure (SBP), high density lipoprotein (HDL) levels, physical performance (PP) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Sample of 32 SHRs divided into four groups: wine and exercise group (WEG), wine group (WG), exercise group (EG) and control group (CG). Red wine doses were given by intra-gastric gavage, during ten weeks, coincident with PE period, performed on treadmills. The SHRs received red wine doses of 3.715 ml/kg/day. Physical performance was analyzed by maximal exercise test (MET) and LVEF by echocardiographic measures. SBP measurement was made before and after the PE protocol. Demonstrated that the three groups which suffered intervention presented significant SBP reduction compared to CG. At the end of the protocol, WEG showed the largest reduction. Like in SBP results, WEG showed the best outcome on HDL levels at the experiment end. There was no significant difference of physical performance and LVEF between groups. PE associated with moderate red wine intake has cardioprotective effects on SBP and HDL levels in SHR. Their physical performance and LVEF are not modified.

Se ha demostrado en pacientes con HTP y en modelos experimentales una desregulación en la vía metabólica de la prostaciclina. Recientemente, la terapia continua endovenosa con prostaciclina (epoprostenol ha demostrado mejorar los síntomas y el pronóstico en los pacientes con clase funcional III y IV de la New York Heart Association (NYHA, con diferentes tipos de HTP. Sin embargo, la administración de epoprostenol requiere métodos invasivos con un catéter endovenoso permanente y está asociado a varios efectos colaterales y potencialmente a complicaciones serias. Se están considerando en la actualidad otros tratamientos con prostaciclina, utilizando análogos estables de la misma administrados por inhalación (iloprost, en forma subcutánea (treprostinil o por vía oral (beraprost.

A dysregulation of prostacyclin metabolic pathways has been demonstrated in patients with PAH and in experimental models. Recently, therapy with continuous intravenous prostacyclin (epoprostenol has been shown to improve symptoms and prognosis in New York Heart Association (NYHA functional class III and IV patients with different types of PAH. However, epoprostenol administration requires invasive methods with a permanent intravenous catheter and is associated with several side effects and potentially serious complications. Other modes of prostacyclin therapies are being considered using stable prostacyclin analogues administered by inhalation (iloprost, subcutaneously (treprostinil or orally (beraprost. Over the last years, different multicenter international double-blind trials have demonstrated the efficacy of those novel prostacyclin analogues in PAH compared to conventional therapy promising a better future for these patients.

    Full Text Available Apesar de a hipertrofia adenoamigdaliana ser uma moléstia reconhecida desde os primórdios, foi somente descrita como causadora de hipertensão pulmonar e cor pulmonale em 1965 por Menashe e Farrehi. Ainda são poucos os casos apresentados na literatura analisando a existência de hipertensão pulmonar em crianças com aumento do tecido adenoamigdaliano. OBJETIVO: Avaliar a prevalência de hipertensão pulmonar em crianças com hipertrofia adenoamigdaliana. FORMA DE ESTUDO: Coorte transversal. MATERIAL E MÉTODO: Foram avaliados 14 pacientes, com idade inferior a 15 anos, de ambos os sexos, com indicação formal para adenoamigdalectomia por hipertrofia adenoamigdaliana. Todos os pacientes foram submetidos à avaliação pré-operatória contendo: questionário, avaliação clínica otorrinolaringológica, Rx simples de cavum, vídeo-nasofibroscopia e ecocardiograma. RESULTADOS: Dos 14 pacientes analisados, um (7,14% apresentou hipertensão pulmonar. CONCLUSÃO: Com base em nosso estudo, concluímos que a hipertrofia adenoamigdaliana está relacionada com o desenvolvimento de hipertensão pulmonar, sendo o ecocardiograma um exame bastante útil na determinação desta condição clínica. A remoção cirúrgica do tecido adenoamigdaliano pode reverter o quadro de hipertensão pulmonar decorrente do processo obstrutivo crônico.Although adenotonsillar hypertrophy is a well-recognized disease since the beginning, it was not described to be cause of pulmonary hypertension until 1965 by Menashe and Ferrehi. There are only few records in the literature, analyzing the existence of pulmonary hypertension in children with obstructive adenotonsillar hypertrophy. AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension in children with obstructive adenotonsillar hypertrophy. STUDY DESIGN: Transversal cohorte. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Fourteen patients with indication for adenotonsillectomy, from both sexs, with age ranging from O to 15 years, were analyzed in this study. AlI patients underwent to a complete pre-surgery evaluation, with questionary, complete ENT evaluation, lateral X ray films, nasofibrolaryngoscopy and echocardiography. RESULTS: From all fourteen patients analyzed, one (7,14% had pulmonary hypertension in the echocardiography examination. CONCLUSION: Adenotonsillar hypertrophy is a cause of pulmonary hypertension, and echocardiography examination is a very usefull exam to determine to presence of the pathology. Adenotonsillectomy may revert pulmonary hypertension in children with adenotonsillar hypertrophy.

    Calcification of the walls of the veins of the portal hypertension (PHT) (1-0), is uncommon. Calcification of the intra splenic vessels is exceptional. We report two cases of isolated calcification of intra splenic vessels, without calcification of the splenoportal venous axis, in patients with liver cirrhosis and PHT. The calcification was not clear. Computed tomography identified the calcification as linear tubular, branched structures located in the wall of intra splenic vessels. magnetic resonance imaging disclosed signs of cirrhosis and PHT but did not show the splenic classifications because of technical limitations. The cause of these calcifications was sustained PHT due to chronic liver disease. (Author) 15 refs.

    The postural headache syndrome associated with a decrease in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure is generally secondary to the CSF leakage that usually occurs after diagnostic lumbar puncture. Spontaneous intracranial hypotension can not be attributed to any known cause or previous diagnostic or therapeutic intervention. The syndrome is characterized by severe headache that is relieved by lying supine. During lumbar puncture, the CSF pressure is normally low. We present two patients in whom gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging showed widespread thickening and enhancement of the dura mater and subdural fluid collections. (Author) 13 refs.

    Full Text Available Com base em modelos matemáticos e estudos experimentais estima-se que as medidas da PIO sejam linearmente hiperestimadas em córneas com maior espessura e menor ceratometria por meio de tonometria de aplanação de Goldmann (TAG. Entretanto, tal influência se dá de uma maneira mais complexa que a prevista por estes parâmetros geométricos, sendo diretamente relacionada com propriedades biomecânicas. O sistema de não contato ORA (Ocular response analyzer Reichert permite estudo das propriedades biomecânicas juntamente com a medida pressórica calibrada para a TAG e a compensada da córnea. Adicionalmente, o estudo tomográfico com reconstrução tridimensional do mapa paquimétrico caracteriza a córnea de forma mais completa que a ceratometria anterior e espessura central. Neste artigo, relatamos um caso de dor ocular, fotofobia e baixa visão, 28 dias após cirurgia de facoemulsificação com implante de lente intraocular sem complicações em paciente feminina de 81 anos. Na primeira visita da paciente, enquanto a TAG era de 16 mmHg, o valor da PIO compensada da córnea (PIOcc, obtido com o ORA, era 25,6 mmHg. A histerese e fator de resistência da córnea eram baixos, 4,1 e 6,1mmHg respectivamente, apesar da paquimetria central ser relativamente mais elevada, de 601 micra. O padrão de distribuição espacial da espessura era atenuado, compatível com edema corneano que era observado também por meio das imagens de Scheimpflug (Pentacam. Com base nestes dados, foi feito diagnóstico de quadro de uveíte hipertensiva, associado à edema corneano, instituindo-se tratamento tópico com combinação fixa de maleato de timolol e brimonidina associado ao acetato de prednisolona. Três semanas após, a paciente apresentou-se com grande melhora da acuidade visual, resolução do edema corneano, e dos sintomas, normalizando os parâmetros biomecânicos, geométricos da córnea e de PIO.Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT overestimates intraocular pressure (IOP measurements in cases with thick and flatter corneas. This is thought to occur linearly based on mathematical and on experimental studies. However, such influence does exist, but this is more complex than the one anticipated by pachymetry and keratometry because it is related to corneal biomechanical properties. The ocular response analyzer (ORA Reichert provides the data related to the biomechanical properties of the cornea along with the IOP measurements that are calibrated for correlating to the Goldmann applanation and also compensated from corneal properties. Also corneal tomography with a pachymetric map evaluation characterizes the cornea beyond central thickness and anterior curvature. In this article, we report a case of a 77 years old female patient with low vision, photofobia and ocular pain 28 days after phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implant. In the first visit, GAT was 14mmHg, while IOPcc (ORA corneal compensated IOP was 25,6mmHg. Corneal hysteresis and resistance factor were low: 4,1 and 6,1mmHg respectively despite a central thickness of 601 micron. Corneal thickness spatial profile was attenuated with an edematous pattern that was also observed by the Scheimpflug images (Pentacam. Hypertensive uveitis was diagnosed and the patient was started on a fixed combination of timolol and brimonidine associate with prednisolone acetate. Three weeks after, the patient referred resolution of photofobia and marked improvement of vision. Clinically, edema was resolved as observed by corneal tomographyc and biomechanical findings.

Regular and moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages such as red wine brings a cardiovascular protective effect. Beverage-derived polyphenols have antioxidant properties benefiting blood vessels. There is little evidence on the consumption of red wine associated with PE and the influences on the cardiovascular system. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of physical exercise (PE and moderate red wine intake interaction on systolic blood pressure (SBP, high density lipoprotein (HDL levels, physical performance (PP and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR. METHODS: Sample of 32 SHRs divided into four groups: wine and exercise group (WEG, wine group (WG, exercise group (EG and control group (CG. Red wine doses were given by intra-gastric gavage, during ten weeks, coincident with PE period, performed on treadmills. The SHRs received red wine doses of 3.715 ml/kg/day. Physical performance was analyzed by maximal exercise test (MET and LVEF by echocardiographic measures. SBP measurement was made before and after the PE protocol. RESULTS: Demonstrated that the three groups which suffered intervention presented significant SBP reduction compared to CG. At the end of the protocol, WEG showed the largest reduction. Like in SBP results, WEG showed the best outcome on HDL levels at the experiment end. There was no significant difference of physical performance and LVEF between groups. CONCLUSION: PE associated with moderate red wine intake has cardioprotective effects on SBP and HDL levels in SHR. Their physical performance and LVEF are not modified.

MATERIAL AND METHODS. Cross-sectional study performed on 2008. Previous year clinical measures were obtained from 5 444 diabetic and 5 827 hypertensive patient's clinical records. Adequate metabolic control (glucose <110 mg/dl for diabetes and blood pressure <140/90 mmHg for hypertension associated factors were assessed by multiple-multilevel logistic regression methods. RESULTS. Patients attending accredited clinics were more likely to be controlled, however, metabolic control was not constant over time of accreditation. CONCLUSIONS. Additional efforts are required to monitor accredited clinics' performance in order to maintain both metabolic control and clinical assessment of patients.

Descriptive-exploratory study which was inspired on the Orem's self-care theory and developed with 200 women who presented high blood pressure at a Public Health Agency, located in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil. The data were collected during nursing encounters, organized in categories, and analyzed according to the fundaments of the referred Theory. In this surveyed sample, about 172 (86% women found out that they had high blood pressure problems by means of signs and symptoms related to the "climateric". It was evidenced on the women interviewed, that they presented knowledge knowledge about this syndrome, partial adherence to the treatment, and consequently inefficient practice of self-care, related to this deficit. In this way, it is possible to conclude that the self-care practice was influenced by the age, by disease stage development, and by the social, economic and health problems.

As médias das pressões sistólicas da população estudada e dos dois grupos etários desta população (16 a 20 anos e 21 a 25 anos foram idênticas em ambos os anos, tendo as médias das pressões diastólicas diferido de no máximo 2 mmHg; as médias, tanto sistólicas quanto diastólicas, dos dois sexos e da parcela branca da população estudada quanto à idade e sexo também diferiram de no máximo 2 mmHg. As médias da população estudada e sua parcela branca, em ambos os anos, foram superiores no sexo masculino e no grupo etário de 21 a 25 anos. Na população negra e amarela houve disparidade de resultados entre 1975 e 1976, indicando influência da exiguidade do tamanho dos contigentes negro e amarelo desta população.

    Intracraneal manifestations of Hodgkin's Disease (HD) are extremely rare, with an estimated incidence rate of approximately 0.5%. They can be classified as: 1) treatment-related leucoencephalopathy, 2) central nervous system infections, 3) paraneoplasic syndromes and 4) intracraneal lymphomas, which could be sub-classified into intraparenchymal or intradural masses. We describe a case of a 40 year-old male with mixed cellularity type HD who developed neurological manifestations as relapsed disease. Magnetic resonance imaging suggested leptomeningeal metastases and atypical cells were found in cerebrospinal fluid. The patient died from progressive disease refractory to third line chemotherapy. There are less than 50 similar cases reported in the literature. We review the clinical features and differential diagnosis of leptomeningeal metastases in Hodgkin's disease.

El extracto provocó en ambas cepas de ratas una reducción significativa del retorno venoso. Se concluye que el extracto de Clusia provoca un efecto vasoconstrictor periférico, por lo que el efecto hipotensor y anti-hipertensivo encontrado anteriormente, podría ser atribuido a un efecto directo sobre el miocardio, mediante una disminución en la fuerza de la contracción cardíaca (efecto inotrópico negativo.Aqueous leaf extract of Clusia coclensis was applied at a dose of 40 mg/kg intravenously to isolated posterior extremities of six normotensive Sprague-Dawley rats and six Spontaneously Hipertensive rats anaesthetized with sodium nembutal. The perfusion was done in the abdominal artery using as carrier Krebs bicarbonate ringer at 37 °C and keeping constant perfusion pressures of 100 mmHg in normotensive rats and 150 mmHg in hipertensive ratas. The venous return was measured in the inferior vena cava. The extract induced a significant reduction of the venous return begining 2 min after application, in both rat types. This may reflect a peripheral vasoconstriction that, in whole organism,would have an hipertensive effect. Therefore, the mechanism of the alledgedly systemic hipotensive effect of the aqueous extract of Clusia coclensis leafs resides probably at a central level, probably acting by a reduction of the contractibility of the myocardium.

    Neurocysticercosis is the most common cerebral parasitosis. Of the three forms in which it can present itself, intraventricular cysticercosis is the least common and has the poorest prognosis. Diagnosis is principally made through the use of neuroimaging methods, especially MR, which is also indispensable both as a preoperative control and in the choice and response evaluation of postoperative treatment. We present the case of a 24-year-old Ecuadoran woman with clinical intracraneal hypertension due to a cysticercus cyst in the third ventricle. We analyze the imaging findings and their usefulness in assessing possible treatments. (Author) 13 refs.

    Dapsone has been shown to be effective in treating immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) in adults. In children the experience is limited. We describe our experience using dapsone in a female with refractory, symptomatic ITP who suffered intracranic haemorrhage and massive gastric bleeding. After treatment platelet counts was more than 100 x 103/μL, and reached 1000x103/μL. Discontinuation resulted in a rapid decrease in platelet counts, with severe intracranial haemorrhage (ICH). The recovery of dapsone led the platelets count to lower values. We suggest that treatment should not be discontinued in responders, at least in children with symptomatic ITP. Additional studies of dapsone in children are warranted.

On the basis of anatomo-surgical considerations, a retroperitoneal approach has been found reaching the hilus of the spleen via the lumbar region; the first arterial spleno-renal anastomosis by this way was performed in 1972 and the first venous spleno-renal anastomosis due to portal hipertension also by this way was performed in 1974, the alter proving to be the least aggresive by avoiding damaging the páncreas, the most surgical and direct for reaching the splenic vessels thereby enabling a better exposure and an easier performing of the anastomoses. By being retroperitoneal, the loss or infección of the ascitic liquid in the cirrhotic patient is prevented.

    Full Text Available Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES is characterized by the following symptoms: seizures, impaired consciousness and/or vision, vomiting, nausea, and focal neurological signs. Diagnostic imaging includes examination by magnetic resonance (MR and computed tomography (CT, where brain edema is visualized bi-laterally and symmetrically, predominantly posteriorly, parietally, and occipitally. Case report. We presented a 73-year-old patient with the years-long medical history of hipertension and renal insufficiency, who developed PRES with the symptomatology of the rear cranium. CT and MR verified changes in the white matter involving all lobes on both sides of the brain. After a two-week treatment (antihypertensive, hypolipemic and rehydration therapy clinical improvement with no complications occurred, with complete resolution of changes in the white matter observed on CT and MR. Conclusion. PRES is a reversible syndrome in which the symptoms withdraw after several days to several weeks if early diagnosis is made and appropriate treatment started without delay.

    Two cases of carotid sinus syndrome with peculiar clinical and nosological characteristics are presented. The clinical symptoms were characterized by syncope with bradicardia and hypotension, which occurred contemporarily or independently of each other. The most valuable medical therapy to prevent or got over the syncopal attacks has proved to be one associating the sympathicomimetic drugs (high dosage dopamine, particularly on demande pacemaker. Complete decrease of symptoms following was obtained only after surgical treatment: denervation of carotid sinus in one case, intracranical section of the glosspharyngeal nerve and of the two vagal termination nearer to IX in the other case. This last result makes it possible to consider the case in question from an original nosological point of view exploiting the pathogenetic importance of stimulating the afferent nerve-fibres of the glossofaryngeal-nerve.

    Full Text Available Glioblastomas (GBMs are very aggressive and almost incurable brain tumors. The development of new therapeutical approaches capable of selectively killing cancer cells could represent a step forward to fight cancer. With this aim we tested the efficacy of a novel oncolytic therapy based on recombinant herpes simplex viruses (HSVs infecting exclusively cells expressing the human receptor HER-2 [1, 2], overexpressed in about 15% of GBM model based on PDGF-B embryonic transduction [4, 5]. We engineered cell cultures derived from this model to express HER-2 and we injected intracranically such cultures in NOD/SCID mice. We evaluated the efficacy of R-LM113, a recombinant HSV directed to HER-2, in this glioma model expressing HER-2. We demostrated that mice injected with engineered glioma cells infected with R-LM113 developed glioma with a statistically significant delay compared to mice injected with non-infected engineered glioma cells.

En el estres se pueden llegar a presentar dos tipos de estres: el positivo y el negativo. Los cuales presentan unas caracteristicas muy particulares, como en el estres negativo: una persona se encuentra ante un nitmero creciente de demandas que le plantean dificultad o constituyen una amenaza, se debe mirar el modo de afrontarlas. En el Estres positivo se presenta cuando la percepcion de capacidad de demanda es mucho mas amplia que las verdaderas demandas. Un aspecto fundamental ante la presencia de estres es la practica necesaria de un deporte o la realizacion de actividades recreativas.

    Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is characterized by precapillary pulmonary hypertension secondary to vaso-occlusive pulmonary vasculopathy and is classified as Pulmonary Hypertension Group 4. The aim of this study is to report the clinical experience of CTEPH in Mexico. Consecutive patients diagnosed with CTEPH were identified from the Registro de Pacientes con Hipertension Pulmonar del Instituto de Seguridad y Servicio Social de los Trabajadores del Estado (REPHPISSSTE) registry between January 2009 and February 2014. Right heart catheterization was not routinely performed prior to August 2010 in the work-up of CTEPH. We identified 50 patients with CTEPH; their median age was 63 years and 58 % were female. Patients had multiple associated co-morbidities and moderate hemodynamic impairment. All patients were treated with anticoagulation. Despite surgical evaluation for pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA), only one patient underwent PEA given the lack of infrastructure for post-operative care and lack of insurance for this procedure. Most of the patients were treated with sildenafil, bosentan, or both, with increasing use of rivaroxaban and sildenafil in recent years. The overall survival of the cohort was similar to that reported in other international registries, despite the limitations of care imposed by drug availability and surgical feasibility. This is the first report on the CTEPH experience in Mexico. It highlights the similarity of patients in the REPHPISSSTE registry to those in international registries as well as the challenges that clinicians face in a resource-limited setting.

  1. LEPTIN AND OBESITY – NEUROENDOCRINE , METABOLIC AND ATHEROGENIC EFFECTS OF LEPTIN

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mišo Šabovič

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available Background. Leptin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that was recently discovered. Leptin and leptin resistance play an important role in the pathogenesis of obesity. Leptin acts by binding to specific receptors in the hypothalamus to alter the expression of several neuropeptides that regulate food intake and energy expenditure. As commonly found, obese persons have leptin resistance and consequently attenuated effects of leptin. Mechanism underlying leptin resistance has not been explained yet: it might be the result of a receptor or post receptor defect, impaired transport of leptin through cerebrovascular barrier or inactivation of leptin by binding proteins. Phase I and II clinical trials proved that recombinant leptin administration to humans is safe. First results of the current phase III clinical trials demonstrated that leptin is moderately effective in the treatment of obesity.Conclusions. Beside anti-obesity effect, leptin can have important metabolic and neuroendocrine effects. It is involved in glucose metabolism and insulin secretion, pathogenesis of polymetabolic syndrome, diabetes and arterial hypertension. In addition it affects some processes of atherothrombosis. It interacts with and significantly influences hypothalamic-pituitaryadrenal, thyroid, sexual glands and growth hormone axes. Explaining the mechanism of leptin resistance could be important for understanding the pathogenesis of obesity and associated pathologic states as polymetabolic syndrom, diabetes, arterial hipertension and atherothrombosis.

El compromiso neurológico puede ocurrir por la presencia de malformaciones arterio-venosas cerebrales, hemorragia intracraneal, y más habitualmente por accidentes cerebrovasculares isquémicos y abscesos cerebrales secundarios a embolia paradojal, en pacientes con malformaciones arteriovenosas pulmonares. El absceso intramedular es una entidad rara, inusual como complicación de la enfermedad de Rendu-Osler-Weber. Presentamos el caso de una mujer de 56 años de edad, con antecedentes familiares de enfermedad de Rendu-Osler- Weber, que ingresó a Terapia Intensiva con cuadriplejia aguda e hipoxemia, en quien se diagnosticó fístulas arteriovenosas pulmonares y un absceso intramedular cervical.Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by multiple skin and mucosal telangiectasis and multiorgan arteriovenous malformations. Neurological manifestations may occur because of cerebral arteriovenous malformations, intracranial hemorrhage, and most commonly by ischemic stroke and brain abscess secondary to paradoxical embolization in patients with pulmonary arteriovenous malformations. Intramedullary abscess is a rare, unusual condition, in Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome. We report the case of a 56 years old woman, with a familial history of Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome, admitted to intensive care with acute quadriplegia and hypoxemia. Our diagnosis was pulmonary arteriovenous malformations and intramedullary abscess.

    Full Text Available A 36-year-old man visited our hospital because of blurred vision and redness of the conjunctiva. Slit-lamp examination showed panuveitis. Two days later, he suddenly experienced dizziness, speech disturbance, paralysis of his right extremities, and gait disturbances. Neurological examinations suggested that his symptoms were caused by a left lateral medullary lesion. He also had erythema mainly on his trunk. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI of his brain demonstrated a small infarct on the left side of the medulla oblongata. Clinical presentation and MRI findings were consistent with the diagnosis of a Wallenberg’s syndrome. He also had bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy. A skin biopsy showed granulomatous nodular dermatitis compatible with sarcoidosis. He was treated with steroid pulse therapy and his neurological and ocular symptoms immediately improved. Only seven similar cases of intracranical sarcoidosis have been reported, but none had been treated with steroid pulse therapy. We recommend that steroid pulse therapy be considered to treat patients with sarcoidosis with signs of lesions in the central nervous system.

    Mummified nervous tissue is very rarely found in ancient remains and usually corresponds to corpses which were frozen or preserved in bogs, conditions which limit tissue autolysis and bacterial degradation. Here, we show the unusual finding of spontaneously mummified brain tissue from several individuals from the little known megalithic talaiotic culture of the island of Minorca, dating approximately 3,000 years before present and corresponding to the late Mediterranean Bronze Age. These individuals were part of an intact burial site containing 66 subjects. Intracraneal samples were carefully rehydrated with Sandison's solution. We used classical histochemical as well as 2D and 3D (scanning) electron-microscopic techniques. We provide evidence of the nervous nature of the samples as well as a detailed description of the morphological features of these ancient tissues. The intracranial material consisted of well-preserved eosinophilic reticular tissue and, although mostly absent, some exceptional pigment-containing neurons were identified. We present a detailed morphological analysis which can provide valuable information and guidelines for the interpretation of this scarce type of mummified samples and provide explanations for this surprising preservation.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT We report one patient with Klippel-Feil (KFS syndrome, other associated anomalies, uncontrolled arterial hypertension, and renal artery stenosis. Because this patient underwent for surgical revascularization with unsuccessful result, all proposed way of treatments are revised, and we have hypothesized that probably for patients with KFS and unilateral renal artery stenosis, medical treatment with ACE inhibitors can provide more benefits than surgical revascularization or percutaneous transluminal angioplasty. We considered that those patients should be manage by a team of medical doctors being aware of their common associated anomalies, identifying all of them when it is possible then, making an integral evaluation of the each individual situation for establishing their medical priorities in order, and then address its treatments accordingly. If at this stage any surgical treatment is required, is important to bring those problems to the anesthesiologist’s attention for a very careful manipulation of the neck and head during induction of anesthesia. The final results will be strongly related with the capacity of management of the underlying cardio-respiratory, renal, skeletal, urogenital, and nervous system problems. . We also propose the term of Klippel-Feil syndrome "Plus" for those patients with cervical vertebral fusion and many other associated deformities rather than to add new eponyms to the long list that already exist. _____________ RESUMEN: HIPERTENSION RENOVASCULAR DEBIDO A ESTENOSIS DE LA ARTERIA RENAL EN EL SÍNDROME DE KLIPPEL-FEIL Reportamos un paciente afectado por un syndrome de Klippel-Feil, otras anormalias congenitas, hipertension arterial incontrolada y una estenosis unilateral de la arteria renal.

Angiotensin II, the primary agent of the renin–angiotensin system (RAS, has a central role in endothelial dysfunction. Therefore, RAS blockade with an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB and/or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE inhibitor provides a rational approach to reverse endothelial dysfunction, reduce microalbuminuria, and, thus, improves cardiovascular and renal prognosis. ARBs and ACE inhibitors act at different points in the RAS pathway and recent evidence suggests that there are differences regarding their effects on endothelial dysfunction. In addition to blood pressure lowering, studies have shown that ARBs reduce target-organ damage, including improvements in endothelial dysfunction, arterial stiffness, the progression of renal dysfunction in patients with type 2 diabetes, proteinuria, and left ventricular hypertrophy. The ONgoing Telmisartan Alone in combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial (ONTARGET Programme is expected to provide the ultimate evidence of whether improved endothelial func tion translates into reduced cardiovascular and renal events in high-risk patients, and to assess possible differential outcomes with telmisartan, the ACE inhibitor ramipril, or a combination of both (dual RAS blockade. Completion of ONTARGET is expected in 2008. Keywords: angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, angiotensin receptor blocker, endothelial dysfunction, ONTARGET, renin–angiotensin system, telmisartan

    Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an uncommon non-hereditary sporadic disease that increases the risk of premature death, especially in diffuse type. We determined the prevalence of SSc in the last 13 years in our rheumatologic hospitals as a referral center for southern Iranian patients, the causes of hospitalization, the average length of stay (LOS), the mortality rate, and the reason for their mortality. A cross-sectional study was performed in Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Iran. The studied population included all patients diagnosed with systemic sclerosis. We calculated the hospitalization rates, in-hospital mortality rates, and mean LOS. There were 446 admissions by 181 patients with SSc. The female to male ratio was about 10.7 : 1. The overall mean LOS was 5.95 days. Digital ulcer and interstitial lung disease (ILD) were the most common causes of hospitalizations among the SSc-related events. For those with a non-SSc-related condition, infection was the most prevalent event. Most of the deaths were due to ILD and pulmonary artery hypertension(PAH), and the overall in-hospital mortality rate was 16.5%. Women with SSc had higher rates of hospitalization but lower in-hospital mortality than men.There were some differences between our study and other similar studies in the causes of hospitalization and in-hospital death among SSc patients, especially the lower age of death. The patients with digital ulcers and those with intestinal lung disease or pulmonary hipertension were most commonly admitted to the hospital in our study group. Probably, increasing the skin care of these patients and asking other specialty groups to cooperate will decrease the high rate of hospitalizations in our population.

    Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is one of the most dangerous complication that could occur in patiens treated in surgical ward. Threat is increased due to presence of additional, apart from surgical procedures, risk factors. It is assesed, that approximately 50 000 patients are at risk of VTE yearly in Poland, 20 000 of them develop pulmonary thromboembolism during hospitalisation, which is fatal in 10% of cases. Aim of the study was to asses presence of VTE risk factors in the group of patients treated in the 2nd Chair of Surgery Jagiellonian University Medical College and to analyse applied prophylaxis. The study enrolled 170 patients, 89 (52%) females and 81 (48%) males. Average age of the studied group was 57.9. Medical history of all patients was taken with an emphasis on presence of VTE risk factors. It had a form of questionnaire and enclosed questions. Apart from the anamnesis, physical examination was performed. Type of applied prophylaxis was assesed on the basis of medical records. Each patient was charged with 4 risk factors on average. The most common risk factors were: age, surgical procedure lasting longer than 45 minutes, ischaemic heart disease and hipertension. Clinical probability of deep venous thrombosis was assesed according to Wells scale; low: 59% of studied group, intermediate: 41%, high: 0%. Applied prophylaxis included pharmacotherapy, physiotherapy, and mechanical methods (compression). The most common risk factor that could be changed was duration of the surgery lasting longer than 45 minutes. Pharmacological prophylaxis should be more often complemented by mechanical methods and physiotherapy, especially in group burdened with high risk of VTE.

As complicações pós-operatórias não apresentaram correlação com o procedimento, observando-se, inclusive, baixo índice de complicações pulmonares. Concluiu-se que a maioria das crianças, incluindo muitas com lesões complexas e hipertensão pulmonar pre-operatoria, podem ser extubadas precocemente com segurança e diminuição das complicações pulmonares secundárias à ventilação mecânica, bem como redução do período de permanência em UTI, e de hospitalização, stress da criança, dos familiares e os custos hospitalares.Of 441 pediatric patients recovering from surgical repair of congenital heart disease, 372 (84% were extubated in the operating room immediately after the procedure, using a clinical criteria, cutaneous pO2 saturation and pCO2 in exchanged air. Postoperative complications were not correlated with the procedure, and less pulmonary complications were observed. We concluded that most of pediatric patients, including many of those with complex lesions and preoperative pulmonary hipertension, can safely be extubated early cardiac surgery with minimization of pulmonary complications secondary to mechanical ventilation as well as reduced length of ICU and hospitalary stay, minimizing children and parents stress and hospitalary cost.

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (CPOD) is an important problem in Brazil and other countries. The clinical treatment of ambulatory patients is now reasonably standardized. Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) is an alternative of surgical treatment of emphysema (aside from lung transplantation). The aim of this study was to analyse patient selection criteria for LVRS. This study was carried out using a sample of 31 patients referred to and given assistance to at the Smoking and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Outpatient Ward Antonio Pedro Hospital, who were evaluated to check whether or not they could be eligible for LVRS. Aiming at evaluating the major criteria for eligibility for LVRS, the patients underwent a protocol including standardized anamnesis and physical examination, spirometry with maximum inspiratory and expiratory flow volume curves associated with post-bronchodilatator test, room air arterial blood gases, a six-minute walking test, plain chest roentgenograms and left lateral chest roentgenograms, high-resolution chest computed tomographic scans and lung perfusion scans. Statistical analysis was conducted with description of data proportions. Contraindications to surgery included chronic bronchitis (29% or nine patients), forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV 1) more than 80 percent predicted (13% or four patients), negative consent for surgery (10% or three patients), fibrosis pattern, severe depression and bronchiectasis (two patients each one), solitary pulmonary nodule, severe obesity, severe bullous emphysema, pulmonary hipertension, pulmonary resection history, current cigarette smoking, diffuse emphysema with alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency and severe cardiac disease (one patient each). Indication.

    Renal oncocytoma is a benign tumor that in some series represents up to 18% of all solid neoplasms measuring 4 cm or less. Since radiologic distinction between a renal cell carcinoma and oncocitoma is practically impossible, the histologic examination represents the cornerstone of diagnosis. Follow up will be greatly modified by the diagnosis of oncocytoma since it displays a benign course. Eight cases are presented here that were treated at our institution with special mention to diagnosis and therapy. A retrospective review was performed using records of 288 patients with kidney tumors from 1971 to 2002. Cases had to have several tissue staining including E&O, Schiff's peryodic acid, coloidal Iron, Alcian blue and mucicarmin. A total of 8 cases (4 men and 4 women) of oncocitoma were detected (2.7%). Patients had a mean age of 50 years (36-69), none had familial history of renal tumors and hipertension was detected in 6. Patients were diagnosed after surgery since radiologic studies suspected renal carcinoma in all patients. The neoplasms measuring more than 8 cm and association with renal cancer in a patient. Follow up was course benign in all patients without recurrence. Renal oncocytoma represent a small proportion of renal tumors seen in our institution. It must be suspected in solid renal neoplasms measuring less than 4 cm more so if a centrally located scar is seen on CT scan creating a wagon wheel appearance. Definitive diagnosis is made by histologic examination after a chromophobe tumor is ruled out. Since it has a benign course, minimal radiologic follow up is warrented.

    Full Text Available Brain stem gliomas are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms arising mostly in paediatric patients. Tectal plate gliomas represent a particular type of brain stem tumours usually with a benign, indolent clinical course, presenting with signs of raised intracranial hipertension due to supra-tentorialhydrocephalous caused by aqueductal stenosis. Seldom high-grade lesions arise in this location with tremendous therapeutic implications. When a malignant tumour is clinically and radiographically suspected a biopsy should be performed to obtain histhological confirmation. Treatment is then planned in a case-by-case basis. We present the case of a glioblastoma of the tectal plate in a 22 years-old woman operated upon by a supracerebellar-infratentorial approach.Os gliomas do tronco cerebral são um grupo heterogêneo de neoplasias que acometem habitualmente crianças. Os gliomas da placa quadrigeminal representam um tipo particular de tumores do tronco cerebral, habitualmente com um curso benigno e indolente, surgindo com sinais de hipertensão intracraniana devido a hidrocefalia supra-tentorial provocada por compressão do aqueduto cerebral. Raramente surgem lesões de alto grau nesta região, mas as implicações terapêuticas são tremendas. Quando existe suspeita clínica e imagiológica de que se trata de lesão maligna, esta deve ser biopsada para se obter confirmação histológica. O tratamento deve então ser planejado caso a caso. Apresentamos o caso de glioblastoma da placa quadrigeminal em uma paciente de 22 anos intervencionado por via supracerebelar-infratentorial.

    Introducción: los meningiomas del foramen óptico producen un rápido deterioro de la función visual aún cuando su tamaño es pequeño, por eso su diagnóstico y manejo difiere del resto de los meningiomas clinoideos. El propósito de este estudio es presentar la técnica y los resultados de nuestro manejo quirúrgico de meningiomas foraminales (MF). Pacientes y Métodos: se llevó a cabo una revisión de las historias clínicas de 47 pacientes con meningiomas primarios intraorbitarios. Se realizaron 52 cirugías en los pacientes con MF. Se empleó una craneotomía fronto-orbitaria, seguida de una descompresión extradural del canal óptico, resección del componente intraorbitario y exploración intradural del nervio óptico. Resultados: de los 12 pacientes con MF que presentaban la visión conservada, la agudeza visual fue preservada en 7 casos, mejoró en 2, y empeoró en 3. En 18 pacientes, el principal síntoma fue exoftalmos y en 35 pacientes ceguera unilateral. Ocurrieron 6 recurrencias, 2 a 10 años después de la resección quirúrgica. Cinco de ellos fueron reoperados.

    Full Text Available Los aneurismas del complejo arteria cerebral anterior-arteria comunicante anterior figuran entre los más frecuentes de localización intracraneal y, debido a su variabilidad anatómica y características hemodinámicas, constituyen un reto especial para cualquier esfuerzo terapéutico. Con el objetivo de caracterizarlos y evaluar los resultados del tratamiento quirúrgico de estas lesiones, se estudian los pacientes operados en el Servicio de Neurocirugía del Hospital Clinicoquirúrgico «Hermanos Ameijeiras», entre enero de 1983 y agosto de 1998. Se observó que el 71,1 % de la muestra egresó en excelente estado; el 13,44 %, con secuelas mínimas; el 3,48 %, con secuelas graves y que la mortalidad fue del 11,53 %. Se concluye que estos aneurismas son más frecuentes en el sexo masculino, en la cuarta y quinta décadas de la vida (media de 39,9 años y que el tamaño crítico de ruptura se ubica mayoritariamente entre 6 mm y 11 mm. De igual forma se observó que la edad, el tamaño sacular, el vasoespasmo y la ruptura transoperatoria influyen sobre los resultados y que la influencia de estas dos últimas complicaciones es muy fuerte. El infarto cerebral isquémico fue la causa de muerte más frecuente

    We present preliminary data on the utility of functional brain imaging with (99mTc)-d,l-HM-PAO and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in the study of patients with dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT), HIV-related dementia syndrome, and the on-off syndrome of Parkinson's disease. In comparison with a group of age-matched controls, the DAT patients revealed distinctive bilateral temporal and posterior parietal deficits, which correlate with detailed psychometric evaluation. Patients with amnesia as the main symptom (group A) showed bilateral mesial temporal lobe perfusion deficits (p less than 0.02). More severely affected patients (group B) with significant apraxia, aphasia, or agnosia exhibited patterns compatible with bilateral reduced perfusion in the posterior parietal cortex, as well as reduced perfusion to both temporal lobes, different from the patients of the control group (p less than 0.05). SPECT studies of HIV patients with no evidence of intracraneal space occupying pathology showed marked perfusion deficits. Patients with Parkinson's disease and the on-off syndrome studied during an on phase (under levodopa therapy) and on another occasion after withdrawal of levodopa (off) demonstrated a significant change in the uptake of (99mTc)-d,l-HM-PAO in the caudate nucleus (lower on off) and thalamus (higher on off). These findings justify the present interest in the functional evaluation of the brain of patients with dementia. (99mTc)-d,l-HM-PAO and regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF)/SPECT appear useful and highlight individual disorders of flow in a variety of neuropsychiatric conditions.

La parálisis de la convergencia es una condición distinta de la insuficiencia de la convergencia y normalmente secundaria a una lesión intracraneal. Acude paciente de 12 años de edad por presentar diplopía horizontal de cerca ± 1 metro de 3 meses de evolución, cefalea, lagrimeo y fotofobia. La impresión diagnóstica fue parálisis de convergencia. En los estudios neurológicos solo se encontró implantación baja de las amígdalas cerebrales. Aún no se precisa la etiología aunque se recoge el antecedente de un traumatismo craneal sin relevancia por la familia.The convergence paralysis is characterized by impossible convergence in the near sight, with crossed horizontal diplopia at one meter distance and normal adduction. The convergence paralysis is a condition different from the inadequate convergence and usually secondary to intracranial lesion. A 12-years old patient went to the hospital because he had suffered horizontal diplopia in near sight (± 1 meter for 3 months, migraine, watering and photophobia. The definitive diagnosis was convergence paralysis. In the neurological studies, the low placing of the tonsils of cerebellum was the only finding. The etiology of this disorder is not determined yet; although there is some history of head trauma to which the family did not pay enough attention.

    The purpose of this study was to determine the role of proteinuria on pregnancy outcome in hypertensive syndrome with singleon pregnancies. Transversal study with retrospective data of 334 pregnancies complicated by hypertensive syndromes who were delivered in the Department of Obstetrics of UNIFESP/EPM from January 1, 1999 to December 31, 2002. The patients were divided into four groups: (I) without proteinuria (n-203); (II) with proteinuria of 0.3 to 1.0g (n-39); (III) 1.0 to 2.0g (n-45); and (IV) 2.0g or more. Without proteinuria there was one case of placental abruption. The presence of proteinuria predicted adverse maternal outcome with increase of complications proportional to his elevation; among them, HELLP syndrome was the most frequent with 30.5% (40/131) followed by eclampsia with 3.8% (5/131), DPP 3.1% (4/131) and renal insufficiency with 0.7% (1/131). It was confirmed one maternal death in that group, when Maternal Mortality of 763/100.000nv was added up. As to the perinatal effects there was not increase of adverse effects without proteinuria. In the presence of proteinuria and its levels was observed the worst perinatal outcome with the elevation of the following indicatives: increase prematurely (62.2% vs 11.5%), newborn with weight < 2500g (6.5% vs 1.5%), newborn with Apgar < 7 in the 5th minute (30.4% vs 3.5%), concepts with growing restriction of intrauterine (41.9% vs 6.5%), newborn interned in the neonatal undid, (59.8% vs 15.5%) stillborn (14.4% vs 1.4%), neonatal deaths (6.1% vs 0.98%). The Perinatal Mortality was greater with proteinúria (175 vs 19,7) and, when = 2.0g (297.8 vs 19.6). The presence of proteinuria in the hipertensives syndromes during gestation and the elevation of their levels increase the risks of maternal complications, especially HELLP syndromes and eclampsia. Besides, it was observed a significative incidence of premature birth, newborn with Apgar < 7, weight < 2500g, IUGR, stillborn and neonatal deaths.

    Full Text Available In the present work, the frontal sinuses of the sabre-toothed felid Promegantereon ogygia are analysed, in comparison to those of the extant felines Acinonyx jubatus, Puma conocolor and Panthera pardus, of similar body weight. The study was carried out using 3D virtual models obtained from CT Scan images, a non-destructive technique that has revealed as a powerful tool for accessing to all kind of intracranial information. Our study shows that the frontal sinuses of P. ogygia were more similar to those of P. concolor, both in the presence of several struts reinforcing the dorsal part, and in the development of a remarkable caudal expansion. This caudal expansion would act as a thermal insulator of the brain, and would indicate a more open environment than previously supposed for this species, whereas the struts would be related to biomechanical stresses produced during the “canine shear-bite”, the killing method of the machairodontines.En el presente trabajo, se analizan los senos frontales del félido dientes de sable Promegantereon ogygia, en comparación con los de los felinos actuales Acinonyx jubatus, Puma conocolor y Panthera pardus, de similar peso corporal.

    Resumen Introducción y objetivo: El TCE leve representa un problema sanitario de enorme interés debido a que un número significativo de enfermos con trauma leve desarrollará complicaciones potencialmente mortales. El objetivo de este estudio ha sido describir una serie amplia de pacientes adultos, mayores de 14 años, que sufren TCE leve, atendidos en el Hospital Universitario de Getafe, entre los años 2010 y 2015 (n = 2480), estudiar el perfil epidemiológico y analizar el diagnóstico y el tratamiento efectuados, así como establecer los principales factores pronósticos que influyen en el resultado final. Método: Se ha realizado un estudio retrospectivo, de revisión de historias clínicas, analizando los resultados con estudio estadístico bivariable y multivariable. Resultados: El TCE leve es más frecuente en varones, y el mecanismo causante más común en nuestro medio es el accidente de tráfico. Se propone un modelo de clasificación de pacientes según grupos de riesgo, que los subdivide en riesgo bajo, intermedio o alto, que se correlaciona bien con la probabilidad de desarrollar complicación intracraneal, y, consecuentemente, con el resultado final. Se discute la indicación de la radiografía simple de cráneo y de la Tomografía Computarizada (TC), así como del ingreso hospitalario para observación neurológica. Conclusiones: En este estudio, la presencia de focalidad neurológica en la exploración clínica, la edad, las alteraciones de la coagulación y la existencia de fractura en la radiografía simple se relacionan con mayor posibilidad de desarrollar lesiones traumáticas intracraneales y con peor pronóstico final. La escala de Glasgow para el Coma es deficitaria en la determinación del resultado final del paciente que sufre TCE, porque no considera variables tales como la amnesia o la pérdida de conocimiento, muy frecuentes en el traumatismo craneoencefálico leve.

    Full Text Available Se informa que con el neuromonitoreo y el manejo intensivo del traumatismo craneoencefálico grave, se han identificado un grupo de fenómenos fisiopatológicos diferentes, los cuales requieren de medidas disímiles y específicas para cada paciente, lo que hace más racional el tratamiento de ellos. De la misma manera esto ha propiciado que cambien radicalmente las concepciones acerca de antiguos patrones terapéuticos establecidos durante muchos años; ejemplo de esto es el cambio en la reposición hídrica de ellos, los cuales antes se mantenían sobre una vertiente seca y hoy se preconiza la euvolemia estricta, la sustitución de la hiperventilación de rutina por la ventilación optimizada, cambios en la política del uso de agentes osmóticos, la terapia barbitúrica y la craneotomía descompresiva en casos de hipertensión intracraneal refractaria a medidas terapéuticas convencionales. En este trabajo se hace una revisión actualizada de las principales medidas terapéuticas utilizadas en estos pacientes, acorde con lo que plantean los lineamientos para el tratamiento del traumatismo craneal grave de la Asociación Americana de Cirujanos Neurológicos y los del consorcio europeo para la lesión cerebral. Las medidas terapéuticas utilizadas en estos pacientes se dividen en 2 fases. En este tercer trabajo de actualización se aborda el manejo de la primera fase que corresponde a la estabilización urgente inicial antes de establecer la medición de la presión intracraneal (PIC, así como las medidas generales de la segunda fase una vez iniciado el monitoreo de la PIC. Principios terapéuticos que desde hace algunos años se vienen utilizando en el Hospital provincial General y el Hospital Pediátrico Provincial Docente de Camagüey para el manejo del trauma craneal grave, los cuales se basan en medidas iniciales en la recepción, acorde con lo que plantean los principios del soporte vital avanzado en trauma para la reanimaci

    The Latin American Dialysis and Renal Transplant Registry (RLADTR) was founded in 1991; it collects data from 20 countries which are members of Sociedad Latinoamericana de Nefrología e Hipertension. This paper presents the results corresponding to the year 2010. This study is an annual survey requesting data on incident and prevalent patients undergoing renal replacement treatment (RRT) in all modalities: hemodialysis (HD), peritoneal dialysis (PD) and living with a functioning graft (LFG), etc. Prevalence and incidence were compared with previous years. The type of renal replacement therapy was analyzed, with special emphasis on PD and transplant (Tx). These variables were correlated with the gross national income (GNI) and the life expectancy at birth. Twenty countries participed in the surveys, covering 99% of the Latin American. The prevalence of end stage renal disease (ESRD) under RRT in Latin America (LA) increased from 119 patients per million population (pmp) in 1991 to 660 pmp in 2010 (HD 413 pmp, PD 135 pmp and LFG 111 pmp). HD proportionally increased more than PD, and Tx HD continues to be the treatment of choice in the region (75%). The kidney Tx rate increased from 3.7 pmp in 1987 to 6.9 pmp in 1991 and to 19.1 in 2010. The total number of Tx's in 2010 was 10 397, with 58% deceased donors. The total RRT prevalence correlated positively with GNI (r2 0.86; P < 0.05) and life expectancy at birth (r2 0.58; P < 0.05). The HD prevalence and the kidney Tx rate correlated significantly with the same indexes, whereas the PD rate showed no correlation with these variables. A tendency to rate stabilization/little growth was reported in the most regional countries. As in previous reports, the global incidence rate correlated significantly only with GNI (r2 0.63; P < 0.05). Diabetes remained the leading cause of ESRD. The most frequent causes of death were cardiovascular (45%) and infections (22%). Neoplasms accounted for 10% of the causes of death. The

    : An observational, descriptive, analytic, longitudinal and prospective study was carried out among newborn infants with a birth weight under 2000 g that were born during this period. In the statistical analysis, frequency distribution, mean and standard deviation of weight gain, height, and cephalic and brachial circunferences were used. RESULTS. 96.16 % of the studied patients were born with a birth weight between 1000 and 1999 g. 93.27 % were below the 36.6 weeks of pregnancy, and in 75.96 % of the cases, delivery was dystocic. 61.54 % of the newborn infants had a weight according to its gestational age. There was a predominance of patients with associated risk factors. More than half had an associated morbidity, due mainly to sepsis (25.96 %. 10.58 % of the newborn died. CONCLUSIONS. The main causes of the low weight of newborns were multiple pregnancy and hipertensive disease during gestation. Deaths were lower than expected. In patients with a symmetric retarded intrauaterine growth, weigh gain and height on discharge were significantly higher than in the asymmetric and they proved to be adequate for their gestational age.

    Full Text Available Systemic arterial hipertension (SAH is one of the major factors in cardiovascular risk, since it contributes to the existence of more than 500 thousand cases of cerebral vascular accidents (CVA, 150 thousand deaths by cerebral hemorrhage and approximately a million myocardium infarctions (IAM. In Brazil, it is estimated that about 15% of the adult population can be considered hypertensive. Hypertension can be prevented by changes in lifestyle, although in most cases, the treatment with drugs becomes necessary. Propranolol hydrochloride is the drug chosen for the hypertensive elderly population who has had myocardium infarctation previously. The drug is commercially available as injections, solutions, capsules and tablets. Tablets can be prepared using three different techniques. The most used technique is the granulation by moisture. With the advance of new excipients available in the market for the Pharmaceutical Industry, a more simple and economical technique became possible, improving the physical and chemical stability of the product, reaching the goal of getting more efficient and safer medicine. The purpose of this study was to develop formulations of propranolol hydrochloride tablets through the variation of excipients and manufacture techniques. The propranolol hydrochloryde tablets were stored at 37o C and 50o C with 90% UR for 90 days, and analysed in pre-established time intervals the formulations were evaluated as for the physical and physical-chemical aspects.   A hipertensão arterial sistêmica (HAS é um dos mais importantes fatores de risco cardiovascular uma vez que contribui, mundialmente, com mais de 500 mil casos de acidentes cerebrovasculares (AVC, 150 mil mortes por hemorragia cerebral e aproximadamente um milhão de infartos de miocárdio (IAM.

RESULTS: The patients were divided into four groups: (I without proteinuria (n-203; (II with proteinuria of 0.3 to 1.0g (n-39; (III 1.0 to 2.0g (n-45; and (IV 2.0g or more. Without proteinuria there was one case of placental abruption. The presence of proteinuria predicted adverse maternal outcome with increase of complications proportional to his elevation; among them, HELLP syndrome was the most frequent with 30.5% (40/131 followed by eclampsia with 3.8% (5/131, DPP 3.1% (4/131 and renal insufficiency with 0.7% (1/131. It was confirmed one maternal death in that group, when Maternal Mortality of 763/100.000nv was added up. As to the perinatal effects there was not increase of adverse effects without proteinuria. In the presence of proteinuria and its levels was observed the worst perinatal outcome with the elevation of the following indicatives: increase prematurety (62.2% vs 11.5%, newborn with weight < 2500g (6.5% vs 1.5%, newborn with Apgar < 7 in the 5th minute (30.4% vs 3.5%, concepts with growing restriction of intrauterine (41.9% vs 6.5%, newborn interned in the neonatal undid, (59.8% vs 15.5% stillborn (14.4% vs 1.4%, neonatal deaths (6.1% vs 0.98%.

It is a descriptive-retrospective study based upon patient records from a philanthropic institution of the National Health System. It highlighted a rising percentage of cesarean sections with high incidence in teenagers. It evidenced that the main indications of cesarean section were due to former cesarean section and pregnancy specific hipertensive disease. It was recorded predominance of pregnants with 4 to 7 pre-natal appointments. Changes in pre-natal care can impact in cesarean section rate, preparing the mother to natural labor, something that can be closely related to midwives obstetrical nurses and physicians capacitation, as well as the placement of group care instead individual care.

Operative technique consisted of latero-lateral papillary muscle fixation, a running continuous suture at annulus level and annuloplasty with a Carpentier ring. Before hospital discharge, all patients were submitted to Doppler echocardiographic control for assessment of valvar and ventricular function. Patients were requested to return at the first and subsequently every 3 months postoperatively for further clinical and echocardiographic control. Results: There was one early non valve-related death. Echocardiographic evaluation before hospital discharge revealed a mean mitral valve area of 3.1 ± 0.6 cm2 and a mean gradient of 3.5 ± 1.6 mmHg. Valvar insufficiency was graded as non-existent or trivial in four cases and mild in the remaining three patients. Ejection fraction which was 57 ± 7% pre-operatively was well preserved in the postoperative period (62 ± 6%. Pulmonary hipertension reduced significantly from 87 ± 15 mmHg pre-operatively to 48 ± 12 mmHg post-operatively. There was also a reduction in the left atrial cavity from 61 ± 10 mm to 53

    mais de um fator mórbido a contra-indicar o seu procedimento. A maioria dos pacientes com critérios para CRVP, a recusa, com receio do procedimento ou após programas de reabilitação pulmonar. O critério mais significativo que indicou CRVP em um paciente operado foi a presença de enfisema heterogênio bilateral nos lobos superiores.BACKGROUND: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (CPOD is an important problem in Brazil and other countries. The clinical treatment of ambulatory patients is now reasonably standardized. Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS is an alternative of surgical treatment of emphysema (aside from lung transplantation. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to analyse patient selection criteria for LVRS. METHODS: This study was carried out using a sample of 31 patients referred to and given assistance to at the Smoking and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Outpatient Ward Antonio Pedro Hospital, who were evaluated to check whether or not they could be eligible for LVRS. Aiming at evaluating the major criteria for eligibility for LVRS, the patients underwent a protocol including standardized anamnesis and physical examination, spirometry with maximum inspiratory and expiratory flow volume curves associated with post-bronchodilatator test, room air arterial blood gases, a six-minute walking test, plain chest roentgenograms and left lateral chest roentgenograms, high-resolution chest computed tomographic scans and lung perfusion scans. Statistical analysis was conducted with description of data proportions. RESULTS: Contraindications to surgery included chronic bronchitis (29% or nine patients, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV 1 more than 80 percent predicted (13% or four patients, negative consent for surgery (10% or three patients, fibrosis pattern, severe depression and bronchiectasis (two patients each one, solitary pulmonary nodule, severe obesity, severe bullous emphysema, pulmonary hipertension, pulmonary resection history

    íveis estabelecidos no critério de alta e tornaram-se assintomáticos após o período de observação.OBJECTIVE: Compare the therapeutic response of symptomatic, hypertensive patients to symptomatic medication or anti-hypertensive drugs at the Emergency Unit. METHODS: A randomized, blind clinical trial involving 100 (one hundred patients assisted at the Cardiology Emergency Unit at Oswaldo Cruz University Hospital (HUOC. All patients reported symptoms associated to systolic pressure (SBP between 180 and 200 mmHg and/or diastolic pressure (DBP between 110 and 120 mmHg. Patients were randomized for treatment with symptomatic (dipirone or diazepan or anti-hipertensive drug (captopril. Those reporting any associated clinical condition and in need of immediate treatment at the Emergency Unit were excluded from the study. Patients reporting no symptoms, and systolic pressure reduced to levels under 180 mmHg and diastolic pressure under 110 mmHg after the 90-minute period were considered as having met discharge criteria. RESULTS: Mean age of population studied was 54.4 years old, most commonly females. Patients were chronic hypertensive, on irregular pharmacological treatment, with low compliance to non-pharmacologic actions, and classified as overweight and obese grade I. Headache, type D (non-angina chest pain, and dyspnea were the most frequent complaints. The number of patients treated with symptomatic drug who reached discharge criteria was similar to that of patients treated with anti-hypertensive (p=0.165. No association was found between previous high blood pressure (HBP diagnosis (p=0.192, pharmacological treatment (p=0.687, and non-pharmacological treatment and discharge criteria. CONCLUSION: Blood pressure (BP was reduced below levels for discharge criteria for a (non-significant higher rate of patients treated with symptomatic drug, who were turned into asymptomatic after the observation period.

    apresentaram números compatíveis com a proposta de agendamento trimestral; 4 a categoria dos exclusivamente hipertensos apresentou, quando comparada com as demais, menor concentração de consultas e maior proporção de faltas por consulta agendada. Discutem-se os limites das ações baseadas no "enfoque de risco" para controle de doenças crónico-degenerativas em população.The efficacy of health actions, related to arterial hypertension and used as a strategy to decrease morbi-mortality due to cardiovascular diseases, in accordance with the "risk approach" and carried out in a Primary Health Care Clinic is assessed. These actions are based on the detection of arterial hypertension in the adult population attended at the Clinic and on the control of blood pressure levels in hypertensive individuals in which other known risk factors continue to be controlled, as well as on further treatment of eventual complications. Data relating to the 3,793 patients who were attended at least once by doctors of the adult sector of a training health-center located in S. Paulo county (Brazil during the period from June 1990 to May 1991, inclusive, were evaluated. This evaluation was made according to each diagnosis undertaken as well as to the concentration of each type of consultation whether occasional, or follow-up. Of these 3,793 patients analysed, 839 presented arterial hypertension and/or diabetes, and were grouped into four categories: the exclusively hypertensive, the hipertensive with other associated chronic diseases (except diabetes, the diabetic and the diabetic with arterial hypertension. The results of this study brougth the following aspects to light: 1 The low coverage of hypertensive individuals and diabetics being attended by the health service when only the population attended by the health service is taken into consideration. 2 The incidence of patients diagnosed as hypertensive in occasional consultations who did not return to the health service for medical follow

    Full Text Available Objetivos. Comunicar la correlación clínico-etiológica de diferentes entidades orbitocraneanas que se presentaron inicialmente con síntomas oftalmológicos y establecer su aporte para la elección del estudio ideal de cada caso particular. Materiales y Métodos. Se analizaron retrospectivamente 36 pacientes con patología orbitaria y/o intracraneal. Las consultas fueron realizadas entre julio de 2007 y enero de 2011, y todos los casos fueron evaluados con examen oftalmológico, Campimetría Visual Computarizada, Tomografía Computada Multislice (TCMS, Resonancia Magnética (RM y, en algunos casos, con un estudio histopatológico. Resultados. El síntoma inicial más frecuente fue la disminución o alteración de la agudeza visual, presente en 22 pacientes (61%. Otros síntomas fueron: diplopía en 9 pacientes (25%, exoftalmos en 2 (5,5%, hematoma orbitario en 2 (5,5% y leucocoria en 1 (3%. En el grupo de pacientes que consultó por alteración visual, los diagnósticos etiológicos fueron variados e incluyeron: meningiomas esfenoidales (n=4, enfermedad de Devic (n=2, glioma mesencefálico (n=1, gliomas ópticos en NF-1 (n=2, metástasis de carcinoma de mama (n=4, linfoma cerebral (n=2, ACV (n=4, hipofisitis linfocitaria (n=1 y pseudotumor cerebri (n=2. Entre los que originalmente manifestaron diplopía, se destacaron: un tumor de lámina cuadrigémina, un quiste pineal con hidrocefalia aguda, dos aneurismas de arteria comunicante posterior, dos aneurismas de arteria carótida interna intracavernosa (uno de ellos gigante y disecante, un aneurisma ventral de la arteria carótida interna supraclinoidea y dos mucoceles fronto-etmoidales. Llama la atención que dos meningiomas del nervio óptico se presentaran inicialmente con exoftalmos y disminución de la agudeza visual en forma secundaria y que la manifestación inicial en un paciente con síndrome de West fuera leucocoria.

    Full Text Available Se reporta que el traumatismo craneoencefálico grave (TCEG continúa siendo la principal causa de muerte y discapacidad en pediatría, de la misma manera es el factor determinante del pronóstico en niños con trauma multisistémico, no sólo ocasionando la desaparición del ser físico, sino también dejándolo en ocasiones en estados limítrofes entre la vida y la muerte, tales son los llamados estados vegetativos. En las últimas décadas se ha revolucionado el modo de tratamiento de estos pacientes, y se ha pasado del tratamiento neuroquirúrgico convencional, el cual se realizaba en salas de neurocirugía y se comportaba con una mortalidad mayor del 70 %, al tratamiento neurointensivo, en unidades de cuidados intensivos (UCI, y se define por neuromonitoreo continuo, intensivo e invasivo, que permite identificar una serie de fenómenos fisiopatológicos que son diferentes para cada paciente y de esta manera tratarlos de forma racional, con lo cual se ha conseguido reducir la mortalidad a niveles inferiores al 30 %. Después de más de 5 años de experiencia con esta metodología en el Hospital provincial General de la provincia de Camagüey, y más de 2 años de realizarla en el Hospital Pediátrico Provincial Docente "Eduardo Agramonte Piña" se decidió en este trabajo describir detalladamente la forma de realizar el monitoreo, así como los valores normales, utilidad clínica y las principales desviaciones patológicas de las variables más importantes en el neuromonitoreo intensivo, como son: presión intracraneal (PIC, hemodinámicas, metabólicas, las cuales pueden ser realizadas con modestos recursos, disponibles en la mayoría de nuestras salas de terapia intensiva. Este primer trabajo recoge definiciones y elementos generales del monitoreo de la PIC, así como información que se puede obtener con los valores numéricos reflejados en el monitor y con el análisis de la morfología de onda.It is reported that severe cranioencephalic

    a partir do fluxo de Insuficiência Tricúspide. O valor médio da PAPs foi de 60±21,6 mmHg, registando-se critérios de Hipertensão Pulmonar (HTP em 77% dos casos estimados.Nos doentes em que não foi possível quantificar a PAPs procedeu-se à avaliação do fluxo da câmara de saida do VD. Destes, 66% apresentavam critérios sugestivos de HTP.Dos doentes com critérios ecocardiográficos sugestivos de Hipertrofia ventricular direita 50% apresentavam história clínica de um ou mais episódios prévios de falêncla cardíaca direita.Dos doentes com critérios ecocardiográficos de dilataçãio do VD 83% apresentavam história clínica de um ou mais episódios prévios de falência cardíaca direita.Os dados preliminares parecem assim sugerir que a Ecocardiografia é um método não invasivo útil na avaliaçãio dos doentes com Doença Pulmonar Crónica Obstrutiva permitindo o diagnóstico precoce de Cor Pulmonale e a quantificação da PAPs. ABSTRACT: NON INVASIVE DIAGNOSIS OF PULMONARY HYPERTENSION AND COR PULMONALE IN PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASEPulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale are indicators of poor prognosis in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD.M-mode, bidimensional and Doppler echocardiography is a non invasive technique usefull in the assessment of the morphological and functional characteristics of the right heart and usefull in the evaluation of the systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sPAP.Yet, some characteristics often present in these patients such as pulmonary emphysema, obesity and deformities of the thoracic wall make difficult the obtention of adequate recordings.The aim of this study was to analyse the feasibility of this method in patients with COPD and to compare its sensitivity to clinical methods in the assessment of Pulmonary Hipertension and Cor Pulmonale in these patients.Thirty-five patients with

    . Actualmente no existe un consenso en la literatura sobre la técnica anestésica de elección en esos casos. El objetivo de este relato, fue describir el caso de un paciente con DVP sometida a cesárea bajo anestesia subaracnoidea. RELATO DEL CASO: Paciente de 28 años, secundípara, con un parto anterior sin historial de aborto, de término, prenatal sin intercurrencias, en trabajo de parto hacía ya cinco horas, y una cesárea realizada hace siete años. Evoluciona con sufrimiento fetal agudo, indicada una cesárea de emergencia. Portadora DVP hace cinco años, debido a la hipertensión intracraneal (sic de etiología desconocida. Examen neurológico normal. Se sometió a la anestesia subaracnoidea con bupivacaína a 0,5% pesada 15 mg y morfina 80 ¼g. El nacimiento fetal fue con Apgar 8 (1 minuto y 10 (5 minutos después del nacimiento. El alta fue concedida después de dos días en excelente condición clínica. CONCLUSIONES: El abordaje anestésico de pacientes obstétricas con DVP es complejo, y deben ser comparados el riesgo y el beneficio de las técnicas en el momento y en las circunstancias de la indicación. El bloqueo del neuro-eje ha sido relatado con éxito en las portadoras de enfermedades neurológicas. En cuanto a la DVP, no existe en la literatura ninguna contraindicación formal para el bloqueo. Los casos deben ser individualizados. En este relato frente a la emergencia obstétrica y el cuadro neurológico vigente, se optó por el bloqueo en el neuro-eje. La técnica proporcionó un adecuado manejo de la vía aérea, una buena condición materno-fetal y una analgesia postoperatoria. La evolución fue favorable sin alteraciones neurológicas provenientes de la técnica escogida.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Patients with ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS represent an additional concern when neuroaxis block is indicated, especially in obstetrics. Currently, a consensus on the anesthetic technique of choice in those cases does not exist in the literature. The
