  • Clinical and epidemiological characterization of newborns with necrotizing

    • Authors: Ariane Mendonça Neves de França, Divanice Contim, Luiz Gustavo Sabino Borges, Juliana Reis Machado, Aline Cristina Souza da Silva, Rosana Rosa Miranda Corrêa
      Abstract: Introduction: Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a severe inflammatory disorder that can affect the whole gastrointestinal system, particularly the ileum, and is a major cause of morbidity in premature infants. Objective: To describe the clinical and epidemiological profile of newborns with NEC, seeking to identify the causes, evolution and severity of the disease. Methods: The study selected 94 patients who developed NEC (cases) and 60 patients who did not develop the disease during hospitalization (controls) and presented similar clinical signs of the case group. The variables analyzed divided into maternal and neonatal. The frequency tests were applied using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 21.0 and comparative analysis using the GraphPad Prism® 5.0 software. Results: There was a higher number of prenatal consultations in cases with NEC. Newborns with NEC had shorter hospital stay, longer parenteral nutrition and antibiotics use and a predominant use of infant formula. The Bell criteria modified by Walsh and Kleigman was negatively correlated to maternal age and positively correlated to gestational age, birth weight and time of parenteral nutrition. Conclusion: Although being a disease of the newborn, the present study indicated that maternal characteristics may be related to its onset of NEC. Therefore, the greater number of prenatal consultations and neonatal factors such as length of stay, prolonged use of parenteral nutrition and antibiotic therapy, and formula use may influence the development of the disease.

  • Does permanent health education walk alone towards
           interprofessionality' A dentist’s perspective

    • Authors: Jacques Antonio Cavalcante Maciel, Igor Iuco Castro-Silva, Maria Socorro de Araújo Dias, Maristela Inês Osawa Vasconcelos
      Abstract: Introduction: Permanent health education (PHE) is a strategy for qualifying work to improve patient care. Objective: To analyze dentists' perspectives on the PHE actions in the context of Primary Health Care. Methods: This qualitative case report study conducted through semi-structured interviews with 26 dentists in primary health care and five managers of PHE actions in the city of Sobral, in the Brazilian Northeast. Results: Data analysis was performed using the Collective Subject Discourse anchored in the following social representations: characterization of PHE actions as educational actions through theoretical-conceptual moments, with an emphasis on technical-scientific approaches and transmissive methodologies of an unprofessional nature; critical reflexivity in indicating improvements for these actions through the incorporation of interprofessional education in PHE actions. Conclusion: The involvement of continuing education actions in PHE has the potential to problematize work and develop strategies for the qualification of patient care, without losing the technical and scientific characteristics of each profession.

  • Modeling of covariates predicting renal allograft failure within six
           months after transplantation

    • Authors: Ubiracé Fernando Elihimas Júnior, Manoel Pereira Guimarães, Orlando Vieira Gomes, Wallace Pereira, Eduardo Eriko Tenório de França, Ulisses Ramos Montarroyos, Emilly Pereira Alves, Frederico Castelo Branco Cavalcanti, Paulo Adriano Schwingel
      Abstract: Introduction: Kidney transplantation (KT) is the renal replacement therapy (RRT) of choice for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, not every KT is successful and some patients persist on RRT. Objective: To model a logistic regression with pre- and post-KT risk covariates capable of predicting secondary allograft dysfunction in need of RRT or reaching stage V of CKD until the first six months post-KT. Methods: Cohort with KT recipients from Northeastern Brazil. Medical records of KT performed between 2011-2018 were analyzed. KT-recipients with insufficient data or who abandoned follow-up were excluded. The covariables analyzed were: demographic; infectious; pre- and post-KT comorbidities; panel reactive-antibodies; number of HLA mismatches; acute rejection episodes mediated by T-cell (ACR) or antibodies (AAR) six months after KT; and laboratory tests six months after KT. Results: Covariates with higher risk for the analyzed outcomes six months after KT were: elderly KT recipients (OR:1.41; CI95%:1.01-1.99), time between onset of RRT and KT (∆T-RRT&KT)>10years (OR:3.54; CI95%:1.27-9.87), diabetes mellitus (DM) pre-KT (OR:3.35; CI95%:1.51-7.46), pyelonephritis (OR:2.45; CI95%:1.24-4.84), polyomavirus nephropathy (OR:4.99; CI95%:1.87-13.3), AAS (OR:4.82; CI95%:1.35-17.2), 24h-proteinuria ≥300mg/24h (OR:5.05; CI95%:2.00-12.7) and serum calcium (Ca) <8.5mg/dL (OR:4.72; CI95%:2.00-11.1). The multivariate model presented an accuracy of 88.1% and the mean variance inflation factor is 1.81. Conclusion: Elderly-recipients, ∆T-RRT&KT>10 years, pre-KT DM, and post-KT aggressions until six months (pyelonephritis, polyomavirus nephropathy, ABMR, 24h-proteinuria≥300mg/24h, and Ca<8.5mg/dL) are associated with high predictive power for secondary allograft dysfunction in need of RRT or reaching CKD stage V until the first six months post-KT.

  • Virulence, biofilm formation ability and antimicrobial resistance of
           Staphylococcus aureus isolated from cell phones of university students

    • Authors: Gabrielle Messias de Souza, Mariana Francelino Almeida de Jesus, Maria Vitória de Souza Ferreira, Karolinny Cristiny de Oliveira Vieira, Wilson Romero Nakagaki, Eliana Peresi Lordelo, Valeria Pereira Cataneli, Lizziane Kretli Winkelstroter
      Abstract: Introduction: Contamination of cell phones can contribute to the dissemination of pathogens in the community and/or hospital environment. Objective: To characterize Staphylococcus aureus strains isolated from cell phones of university students. Methods: Samples were collected from 100 cell phones. Detection of genes associated with virulence factors such as biofilm formation (icaA and icaD), enterotoxins production (SEA, SEB, SEC, and SED), and resistance to methicillin (mecA and mecC) was performed in S. aureus isolates by PCR. Typing mecA gene performed by multiplex PCR. Susceptibility to antimicrobials and biofilm formation rate also evaluated by using disk diffusion test and crystal violet staining. Results: S. aureus was present in 40% of the total samples and about 70% of them belonged to Nursing students. Of the isolates, 85% presented resistance to penicillin and 50% were classified as moderate biofilm producers. In addition, 92.5% of isolates contained the gene icaA and 60% of the gene icaD. Approximately 25% of the isolates presented the mecA gene. Typing of the mecA gene showed the presence of staphylococcal chromosome cassette SCCmec I and c III respectively in 20% and 10% of the isolates. 70% of the samples could not be typed by the technique. Regarding the enterotoxins, the most prevalent gene was SEA (30%) followed by the SEC gene (2.5%). The presence of SED and SEB genes not observed in any of the isolates. Conclusion: The cleaning and periodic disinfection of cell phones can contribute to the reduction of the risk of nosocomial infection.

  • Use of tigecycline at a teaching hospital

    • Authors: Gleycivane Nunes da Silva, Erivaldo Elias Junior, Vanessa Marcon de Oliveira, Erica Freire de Vasconcelos Pereira, Cristiane Munaretto Ferreira, Bianca Rodrigues Acacio, Vanessa Terezinha Gubert, Maria Tereza Ferreira Duenhas Monreal
      Abstract: Introduction: Tigecycline is an antimicrobial agent, approved for the treatment of complicated skin and soft tissue infections, hospital-acquired and community-acquired pneumonia, intra-abdominal infections and anaerobic or atypical infections. Objective: To describe the use of tigecycline in a teaching hospital and to compare data from patients who had their prescriptions audited by the hospital infection committee with those who did not have audited prescriptions. Methods: Retrospective observational cohort study conducted at a teaching hospital from April 2012 to March 2014 including patients who received tigecycline. Demographic variables, comorbidities, microbiological findings, prescribed antibiotics and technical opinions issued by the Hospital Infection Control Service were collected. Results: 71 patients were included, aged between 13 and 92 years, 63.4% were male and 56.3% were non-white. Tigecycline was the first antimicrobial choice in 19.7% (14/71) of the cases, while the use associated with other antibiotics was observed in 66.2% (45/71) of the prescriptions. mainly with meropenem (28.9%). Empirical use was performed in 69.0% of cases, after culture and the antibiogram in 31.0% and off label use in 81.7%. The microorganisms frequently identified by the culture tests were Enterococcus faecalis (17.6%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (14.7%) and Klebsiella penumoniae (11.8%). Conclusion: The study demonstrated that empirical and off label use is common in clinical practice and few prescriptions were guided by the results of the culture and the antibiogram, demonstrating the need for prescribers to evaluate the benefits/ risks of using this antibiotic, risk of resistance, adverse effects and drug interactions, in addition to cost.

  • Evaluation of the botulinum toxin effects in the correction of gummy smile
           32 weeks after application

    • Authors: Carlos Eduardo Alonso Vieira, Wilson Rodrigues de Almeida, Paula Cotrin, Renata Cristina Gobbi de Oliveira, Ricardo Cesar Gobbi de Oliveira, Fabrício Pinelli Valarelli, Julie Watanabe Zamuner, Karina Maria Salvatore de Freitas
      Abstract: Introduction: The use of botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) to correct gummy smile has become popular in recent years. Objective: To evaluate the effects of BTX-A application in the correction of gummy smile 2 and 32 weeks after application. Methods: The sample comprised 35 patients (30 female, 5 male) at a mean age of 25.51 years (±5.59) with gummy smile due to muscular hyperfunction. In each patient, 2U of botulinum toxin was applied in the levator labii superioris alaeque nasi, 2 mm from the nasolabial fold. Photographs of spontaneous smiles were taken at 3 stages: before, 2 and 32 weeks after BTX application. Measurements of the gingival display were performed with the Radioface Studio 2 Software, and the calibration used the actual size of the right maxillary central incisor. Comparison of the three stages evaluated was performed with repeated measures ANOVA and Tukey tests. Results: Gingival display decreased significantly 2 weeks after BTX-A application and increased after 32 weeks but did not return to the initial value. Conclusion: There was a significant improvement in gummy smile 2 weeks after botulinum toxin application, and a significant relapse in the gingival display after 32 weeks, however not returning to baseline values.

  • Effects of resistant exercise and aerobic exercise on people with
           fibromyalgia syndrome: a systematic review of randomized clinical trials

    • Authors: Matheus Borges da Cruz Gomes, Heitor Barbosa Alves, Ramon Martins Barbosa, Ícaro Cerqueira da Silva Oliveira, Geovane Alves dos Santos, Leandro Paim da Cruz Carvalho
      Abstract: Introduction: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is characterized as a condition of chronic and generalized muscle pain, resulting primarily in decreased functional capacity and emotional changes of the patient. Physical exercise (PE) can promote different effects in FMS depending on the chosen method: aerobic training (AT) alone, resistance training (RT) alone or the combination of both in concurrent training (CT). Objective: To synthesize data from clinical trials on the effects of resistance training and aerobic training in people with FMS. Methods: Searches were performed in the Pubmed, Scielo, Virtual Health Library, Scopus and Web of Science databases. Articles published between 2009 and 2020 were analyzed. Results: Eighteen randomized clinical trials were included to compose the discussion of this review. Altogether 1,136 individuals with FMS who participated in interventions with PE were analyzed; 10 studies used RT as an intervention method; 8 applied AT and 3 used CT. In 3 studies more than one method was used. Studies pointed out that there were significant improvements in biological and psychophysiological aspects at the end of the interventions. Conclusion: The analyzed articles suggested that PE through both RT and AT, alone or combined, is an alternative treatment for the population with FMS, being a low-cost intervention and providing significant improvements for these patients.

  • What do Cochrane systematic reviews say about therapeutic tinnitus

    • Authors: Osmar Clayton Person, Fernando Veiga Angélico Junior, Jacqueline Altoé, Leonardo Marinho Portes, Paula Ribeiro Lopes, Maria Eduarda dos Santos Puga
      Abstract: Introduction: Tinnitus is a sound perception not related to stimulation. It can significantly impair the quality of life and its treatment is considered one significant challenge of Medicine. Objective: To evaluate systematic reviews developed by Cochrane regarding therapeutic interventions for subjective tinnitus. Methods: It is an overview of Cochrane systematic reviews. We searched systematic reviews on Cochrane Library. The MeSH term "tinnitus" was used for searches. Inclusion criteria involved therapeutic interventions for patients with subjective tinnitus. Results: The search strategy recovered 577 citations with 14  Cochrane systematic reviews. 13 were included because they were focusing on primary tinnitus interventions. One review had no scope of analysis for tinnitus and it was excluded. 7,998 tinnitus patients were evaluated. Conclusion: There is a lack of evidence of the effectiveness of any intervention for tinnitus treatment, considering the studies performed so far and compiled in Cochrane systematic reviews.
