  • Minor Surgery in a Portuguese familiar health unity

    • Abstract: Introdução: A Pequena Cirurgia centra-se numa série de procedimentos cirúrgicos relativamente simples, com fins terapêuticos ou diagnósticos, que geralmente não requerem internamento hospitalar. Para maior comodidade do utente, a Unidade de Saúde Familiar Canelas propôs-se à implementação de uma consulta de pequena cirurgia, à qual designou por Projeto Tiro’lisso. O objetivo deste trabalho foi demonstrar o processo de organização e resultados obtidos nesta consulta, dois anos após o início da atividade. Materiais e Métodos: Realizou-se um estudo retrospetivo de todas as intervenções cirúrgicas efetuadas, entre maio de 2013 e abril de 2015, tendo em conta o sexo e idade do utente, tempo de resposta, tipo de lesão e correlação clinico-patológica. Foi ainda avaliada a satisfação dos utentes através de um questionário telefónico. Resultados: Com tempo médio de resposta de 17 dias, realizaram-se 229 intervenções com cinco casos de complicações. O fibroma pêndulo foi a lesão mais comum (34,5%), seguida de nevo (31,0%) e quisto sebáceo (14,8%), obtendo-se uma concordância entre diagnóstico clínico e histológico de 71,6%. Em dois casos foram identificadas lesões com características malignas, com exérese total e garantia de margens de segurança. A satisfação média relativamente ao serviço prestado foi de 9,7 numa escala de zero a dez pontos. Discussão: Com uma baixa taxa de complicações e elevada taxa de concordância clinico-patológica, a implementação deste projecto permitiu uma resposta mais rápida e cómoda para o utente, trazendo um elevado nível de satisfação com a ampliação dos serviços prestados pelos cuidados de saúde primários.Introduction: minor surgery focuses on a number of relatively simple surgical procedures with diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, which usually do not require hospitalization. For patient convenience, Canelas Family Health Unit implemented a minor surgery consultation, which was appointed as Tiro’lisso Project. The main objective of this study was to demonstrate the organization process and the consultation results, two years after the beginning of the activity. Materials and Methods: We conducted a retrospective study of whole surgical interventions carried out between may 2013 and April 2015, taking into account the patient sex and age, waiting time, type of lesion and clinicopathologic correlation. It was also evaluated the users satisfaction through telephone questionnaire. Results: With an average time of 17 days response, 229 interventions were performed with five cases of complications. The fibroma pendulum was the most common lesion (34,5%) followed by nevus (31,0%) and sebaceous cyst (14,8%), yielding a correlation between clinical and histological diagnosis of 71,6. Two cases were identified with malignant characteristics, both with total excision and safety margins guaranteed. The average satisfaction with the service was 9,7 on a scale of zero to ten points. Discussion: With a low rate of complications and high clinic-pathological concordance rate, the implementation of this project allowed a faster and more convenient response to the patient, bringing a high level of satisfaction with the expansion of services provided by primary health care.
  • Time-trends in human immunodeficiency virus infection in Portugal:

    • Abstract: Avaliaram-se tendências temporais da infeção pelo vírus da imunodeficiência humana (VIH) em Portugal. Calcularam-se incidência (1984-2013), prevalência e mortalidade por VIH (1988-2013). Com modelos de regressão linear segmentada obteve-se percentagem de variação anual (%VA) e intervalo de confiança a 95% (IC95%) para esses parâmetros, identificando-se anos (pontos de inflexão) em que ocorreram mudanças significativas na tendência. A incidência aumentou até 1999 (homens) e 2000 (mulheres) e depois diminuiu de 47 para 20/100000 homens e de 15 para 8/100000 mulheres até 2013, com decréscimo significativo desde 2003 em homens (%VA=-3,1;IC95%:-4,3;-1,9) e 2000 em mulheres (%VA=-2,8;IC95%:-4,1;-1,6 até 2010 e %VA=-11,3;IC95%:-18,5;-3,6 após 2010). O pico para a mortalidade ocorreu em 1996, decrescendo de 19 para 7/100000 homens e de 4 para 2/100000 mulheres durante 1996-2013, com declínio significativo desde 2003 em homens (%VA=-7,1;IC95%:-8,6;-5,6) e 1996 em mulheres (%VA=-2,9%;IC95%:-4,1;-1,7). A prevalência aumentou significativamente até 2013 para 0,4% (homens) e 0,2% (mulheres), mas com redução gradual da %VA entre pontos de inflexão. O maior declínio da incidência observou-se em utilizadores de drogas injetáveis (UDI) decrescendo de 17 para 1/100000 habitantes durante 1997-2013. Em heterossexuais decresceu de 12 para 8/100000 durante 2002-2013 mas em homossexuais aumentou até 2011 estabilizando em 4/100000. Portugal apresenta progresso favorável relativamente ao controlo da infeção com redução drástica da infeção entre UDI.The aim of this study was to evaluate time-trends of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in Portugal (1984-2013). Incidence (1984-2013), prevalence and mortality rates due to HIV (1988-2013) were computed. Joinpoint regression analyses were performed to estimate annual percent changes (APC) and respective 95% confidence interval (95%CI) for those parameters and to identify years (joinpoints) in which significant changes in time-trends occurred. Incidence rate increased until 1999 (men) and 2000 (women); then decreased until 2013, from 47 to 20/100,000 men and from 8 to 15/100,000 women; such decrease became significant since 2003 among men (APC=-3.1%; 95%CI:-4.3%;-1.9%) and 2000 among women (APC=-2.8%; 95%CI:-4.1%;-1.6% before 2010 and APC=-11.3%; 95%CI:-18.5%;-3.6% after 2010). Higher mortality rates occurred in 1996 and then decreased from 19 to 7/100,000 men and from 4 to 2/100,000 women; such decrease was significant since 2003 among men (APC=-7.1%; 95%CI:-8.6%;-5.6%) and 1996 among women (APC=-2.9%; 95%CI:-4.1;-1.7). Prevalence of infected people increased significantly, hitting 0.4% (men) and 0.2% (women) in 2013, but there was a downward trend in APC between joinpoints. Incidence rate described an evident decrease among injecting drug users (IDU) from 17 to 1/100,000 inhabitants during time-period 1997-2013. Among heterosexuals, such rate decreased from 12 to 8/100,000 from 2002 onwards but it steadily increased among men who have sex with men, hitting 8/100,000 in 2011 and then remained almost unchangeable. Portugal presented a favorable scenario concerning HIV infection control mainly due to the decrease in incidence among IDU.
  • Analysis of current breast cancer diagnosis methods as propellants in
           the innovative process

    • Abstract: A melhoria dos procedimentos diagnósticos que levam a uma identificação prematura do câncer de mama tem elevado a incidência de casos, mas também vêm reduzindo sofrimentos e óbitos em decorrência da doença. Dados da Organização Mundial de Saúde mostram que todo ano, são quase 13 milhões de casos novos de câncer no mundo e 7,5 milhões de mortes por causa da doença. Nas mulheres o câncer mais prevalente é o de mama, no Brasil as taxas de mortalidade continuam elevadas, muito provavelmente porque a doença é diagnosticada em estágios avançados. Neste estudo é feito um levantamento dos exames mais comuns para o diagnóstico do câncer de mama, baseado nos pontos positivos e negativos de cada método e sua efetividade no diagnóstico precoce. Pretende-se assim, identificar os propulsores para inovar nessa área e os métodos mais novos que chegaram ao mercado. Nas análises dos resultados foram observados: que os métodos de diagnósticos mais utilizados são: mamografia, ultrassonografia e ressonância magnética, o mais usado para o rastreamento e diagnóstico precoce é a mamografia, contudo a mesma apresenta-se defasada e ineficaz na diminuição dos óbitos por câncer de mama. Ademais, o acesso ao exame está longe de ser o ideal e a técnica em si depende de uma serie de fatores, tornando-se um procedimento limitado. Concluímos que existe um campo bastante amplo para inovação no diagnóstico em câncer de mama, buscando sempre por técnicas rápidas, práticas, com valores que se encaixem em todos os níveis econômicos e cheguem ate onde os antigos métodos não conseguiram. Os novos métodos são bastante promissores e mostram-se eficazes, se devidamente distribuídos e direcionados.Improving diagnostic procedures that lead to premature identification of breast cancer has increased the incidence of cases, but have also reducing suffering and deaths from the disease. World Health Organization data show that each year, are nearly 13 million new cases of cancer worldwide and 7.5 million deaths from the disease. In women, the most prevalent cancer is breast cancer, in Brazil mortality rates remain high, most likely because the disease is diagnosed in advanced stages. In this study data is made a survey of the most common tests for the diagnosis of breast cancer, based on the strengths and weaknesses of each method and its effectiveness in the early diagnosis. This is intended to identify the drivers for innovation in this area and the newest methods that hechead the market. in the analyzes of results were observed: the most used diagnostic methods are: mammography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, the most widely used for screening and early diagnosis is mammography. However it presents itself outdated and ineffective in decreasing deaths breast cancer. in addition, access to the exam is far from ideal and the technique itself depends on a number of factors, making it a flawed procedure. We conclude that there is a very broad field for innovation in the diagnosis of breast cancer, always looking for quick techniques, practices, values that fit all economic levels and to come up to where the old methods have failed. The new methods are very promising and have proven effective if properly distributed and targeted.
  • Parental needs and stress in neonatal intensive care units: effect of data
           collection period

    • Abstract: The assessment of parental needs and stress is essential for the implementation of quality family-centred care in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs). Therefore, we aim to assess the effect of data collection period on self-reported needs and stress among parents of very preterm infants hospitalized in level III NICU, comparing those interviewed 8-14 days after child’s admission with those interviewed 15-22 days after that event. Between January and September 2013, parents filled the NICU Family Needs Inventory and the Parental Stress Scale in NICU. Needs of assurance and proximity were the most valued, independently of the time of interview. A tendency for attributing a higher relevance to support needs and to stress levels regarding change in parental role was observed throughout the hospitalization.
