  • Effects of regular physical exercise on skin blood flow and cardiovascular
           risk factors in overweight and obese subjects

    • Authors: Tuğba Kılıç, Cahit Bağcı, Mehmet Göl, Hakim Çelik, Davut Sinan Kaplan
      Abstract: Objective: it is well known that low omentin levels and reduced bioavailability of nitric oxide (NO) are outgrowth of obesity. Besides, in obese subjects, microvascular dysfunction can be an initial stage of cardiovascular diseases. This situation can be evaluated with skin laser–Doppler flowmetry (LDF).
      Methods: in this study we investigated the effects of 12 weeks moderate physical exercise on microvascular reactivity and plasma levels of omentin and NO in 25 overweight and obese subjects. Control group was composed of 28 sedentary participants who were neither obese nor overweight. Microvascular reactivity was handled by measurement of skin blood flow from the ring finger of the right hand with LDF, which is a non–invasive method for evaluation. With this method, it was aimed to examine the post–occlusive reactive hyperemia response of the patients. None of the participants in both groups have never followed a regular exercise schedule in their life span.
      Results: with regular exercise, there was a statistically significant decrease in glucose (p=0.008), cholesterol (p=0.05), and triglyceride (p=0.048) levels, while body mass index, high–density lipoprotein, and low–density lipoprotein levels did not change significantly in overweight/obese group. Also, the omentin level significantly increased (p=0.01), but NO level did not change significantly. Moreover, the amount of change in omentin and NO levels measured before and after the physical exercise were significantly correlated (r=0.57). Considering the microcirculation, rest flow (p=0.001) and peak flow value of LDF (p=0.001) increased after the physical exercise.
      Conclusion: our study shows that moderate physical exercise affects microvascular reactivity and plasma levels of omentin in overweight and obese subjects.

  • Spondylodiscitis in pediatric age – a rare disease, a difficult

    • Authors: Madalena Meira Nisa, Jessica Sousa, Joana Pimenta, Joaquina Antunes, Dora Gomes, Cristina Faria
      Abstract: Introduction and objective: spondylodiscitis is an infection that affects the intervertebral disc and the contiguous vertebrae. It represents two to four % of all osteoarticular infections in pediatric age. The pathogen is identified in about half of the cases, with Staphylococcus aureus being the most frequently isolated. Recent studies show that between six months and four years, Kingella kingae has an important etiological role. The purpose of the presentation of this clinical case was to draw attention to this rare pathology whose diagnosis is difficult and requires a high level of suspicion.
      Clinical case description: a sixteen-month-old male, with a history of constipation, is brought multiple times to the Pediatric Emergency Department for a clinical picture with more than a month of evolution of persistent irritability, abdominal pain and refusal to walk, with progressive worsening. On the second visit to the Pediatric Emergency Department, he presented dorsolombalgia on palpation of the dorsolumbar spine and decreased lumbar lordosis, which led to the performance of analytical evaluation, urinalysis, renal and bladder ultrasound and dorsolumbar radiography, all without changes. On the third visit to the Pediatric Emergency Department, hospitalization was decided and dorsolumbar nuclear magnetic resonance and bone scintigraphy were requested, revealing spondylodiscitis in D7-D8. Analytical parameters had no changes, except for a slight increase in erythrocyte sedimentation rate. Blood cultures and remaining etiological study negatives. Intravenous therapy with cefuroxime and flucloxacillin was started with progressive improvement of pain. Upon discharge he was asymptomatic and maintained oral flucloxacillin until a total of six weeks of treatment. He was subsequently reassessed and remained asymptomatic, with a physical examination, analytical evaluation and dorsolumbar radiography without changes.
      Conclusions: spondylodiscitis is an identity that is difficult to diagnose, especially in children, due to its rarity, unspecific clinic, inability for children to verbalize their symptoms and late radiologic signs, requiring a high index of suspicion. The average time between the onset of symptoms and the diagnosis is three weeks to three months. Magnetic resonance imaging is the exam of choice. Blood cultures are often negative. The mainstay of treatment is antibiotic therapy for several weeks, but its choice and duration are controversial. Inappropriate treatment can lead to chronic pain, severe orthopaedic sequelae and devastating neurological complications. When timely and properly treated, most cases have a benign and self-limited clinical course.

  • The use of deliberate reflection to reduce confirmation bias among
           orthopedic surgery residents

    • Authors: Antônio Barbosa Chaves, Alexandre Sampaio Moura, Rosa Malena Delbone de Faria, Ligia Cayres Ribeiro
      Abstract: Introduction: cognitive biases might affect decision-making processes such as clinical reasoning and confirmation bias is among the most important ones. The use of strategies that stimulate deliberate reflection during the diagnostic process seems to reduce availability bias, but its effect in reducing confirmation bias needs to be evaluated.
      Aims: to examine whether deliberate reflection reduces confirmation bias and increases the diagnostic accuracy of orthopedic residents solving written clinical cases.
      Methods: experimental study comparing the diagnostic accuracy of orthopedic residents in the resolution of eight written clinical cases containing a referral diagnosis. Half of the written cases had a wrong referral diagnosis. One group of residents used deliberate reflection (RG), which stimulates comparison and contrast of clinical hypotheses in a systematic manner, and a control group (CG), was asked to provide differential diagnoses with no further instruction. The study included 55 third-year orthopedic residents, 27 allocated to the RG and 28 to the CG.
      Results: residents on the RG had higher diagnostic scores than the CG for clinical cases with a correct referral diagnosis (62.0±20.1 vs. 49.1±21.0 respectively; p = 0.021). For clinical cases with incorrect referral diagnosis, diagnostic accuracy was similar between residents on the RG and those on the CG (39.8±24.3 vs. 44.6±26.7 respectively; p = 0.662). We observed an overall confirmation bias in 26.3% of initial diagnoses (non-analytic phase) and 19.5% of final diagnoses (analytic phase) when solving clinical cases with incorrect referral diagnosis. Residents from RG showed a reduction in confirmation of incorrect referral diagnosis when comparing the initial diagnosis given in the non-analytic phase with the one provided as the final diagnosis (25.9±17.7 vs. 17.6±18.1, respectively; Cohen d: 0.46; p = 0.003). In the CG, the reduction in the confirmation of incorrect diagnosis was not statistically significant.
      Conclusions: confirmation bias was present when residents solved written clinical cases with incorrect referral diagnoses, and deliberate reflection reduced such bias. Despite the reduction in confirmation bias, diagnostic accuracy of residents from the RG was similar to those from the CG when solving the set of clinical cases with a wrong referral diagnosis.

  • Post-COVID-19 multisystem inflammatory syndrome

    • Authors: Henrique Luiz Staub, Lia Portella Staub
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: A potential association of COVID-19 with inflammatory and autoimmune phenomena opens a new chapter in clinical practice. Among several inflammatory conditions described in the post-COVID-19 context, Kawasaki disease and a new condition named multisystem inflammatory syndrome stand out.
      AIMS: To review, in a practical and concise way, the concept and diagnostic criteria of multisystem inflammatory syndrome, the overlaps with Kawasaki disease, as well as the immunopathogenesis and treatment of this new and intriguing condition.
      METHODS: Literature review available in the Pubmed database, with emphasis on systematic reviews with meta-analyses.
      RESULTS: The multisystem inflammatory syndrome is a post-viral, multiorgan hyperinflammatory disorder. The condition is primarily pediatric, and the first cases were reported in England in May 2020. Diagnostic criteria are still imprecise, and include some Kawasaki disease-like manifestations. However, multisystem inflammatory syndrome differs from Kawasaki disease by usually affecting children above five years of age and of black or hispanic races; in clinical terms, it is distinguished by the high frequency of gastroenteropathy, cardiomyopathy and shock. Differential diagnosis includes bacterial sepsis, macrophage activation syndrome, and systemic forms of rheumatoid arthritis. An overexpression of interferons and other inflammatory cytokines pathogenically characterize the multisystem inflammatory syndrome. The disease is, as a rule, responsive to intensive care, steroids, intravenous immunoglobulin, and immunobiologics.
      CONCLUSIONS: Multisystem inflammatory syndrome is a new and complex hyperinflammatory condition associated with previous exposure to SARS-CoV-2. It shows interesting interfaces with Kawasaki disease. Despite the recent description, the literature is already quantitatively robust, and some pending issues in immunopathogenesis, diagnostic criteria and therapy should be shortly clarified.
