  • Association between immunological biomarkers with cardiovascular risk in
           young adults

    • Authors: Egelbert Sidrac Peña Merlano, Anoris Fernández Gutiérrez, Roberto Navarro Quiroz
      Abstract: Objective: To establish an association between serum levels of immunological biomarkers with cardiovascular risk in young adults. Methodology: Descriptive cross-sectional study that employed 130 students from two university institutions in the cities of Barranquilla and Santa Marta, Colombia, 55 male and 75 female, with an average age of 19.49 years. The serum biomarker levels Antistreptolysin O (ASLO), C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and Rheumatoid Factor (RF) were determined by the latex particle precipitation method, while cardiovascular risk was established using the Framinghan scale, adjusted according to age. Results: For cardiovascular risk levels by gender, the comparative result showed a higher high risk in the male gender (38.1%), compared to the female gender (24%), while the maximum risk reflected parity in both genders (20% for men and 21.3% for women); high levels of ASLO are related to high cardiovascular risk in 29.97% of the individuals analyzed; while CRP and Rheumatic Factor presented variable levels in any degree of cardiovascular risk. Conclusion: The present study showed that there is no clear statistical association between the levels of ASLO, CRP and RF with cardiovascular risk, as evidenced by those of HDL cholesterol, in the population studied.   Key words: Biomarker, Cardiovascular risk, inflammation, Immunoassay, Framingham.

  • The Perception of the applicability of CAD/CAM technology in craniofacial
           surgery in a plastic surgery postgraduate program

    • Authors: Diana Carolina Navarro León, Genny Liliana Meléndez Flórez, Clara Isabel López Gualdrón
      Abstract: Abstract: Introduction: Multiple technologies help the development of reconstructive surgical procedures in craniofacial surgery, Surgeon's perception of this type of diagnostic and treatment aids has not been widely studied. Methods and Materials: A workflow is proposed for the management of craniofacial bone defects, then the results are showed to the staff in charge for the treatment of these patients. A survey was subsequently applied, evaluating the degree of satisfaction and perception the perception of the staff regarding applicability, usefulness, impact on different process factors of treatment. Descriptive analysis was performed. Results:  30 people were interviewed: specialists, residents of surgical specialties, general practitioners, medical students. The majority did not have experience with CAD / CAM technology (77%), but considered useful (67%), the considered disadvantages were: technical difficulty, administrative procedures to access, costs, lack of information, need for specific training. The benefits were: Improvement in diagnosis and treatment accuracy, specificity, help in planning, innovation, and versatility. Discussion: Tools such as 3D printing, CAD / CAM technology, facilitate the process of anatomical understanding, planning of the surgical procedure and execution of surgery, implementing the Survey in our service we could show that the perception of the majority of the participants agrees with these data, where the impact and utility of the application of this technology in the treatment of patients is evident, both for graduate surgeons and those in training. Conclusions: The application of technologies in the practice of medicine is useful, facilitates the technical execution of the procedure precision, reduces surgical time and costs. Information and studies that evaluate the surgeon's perception regarding the applicability of CAD / CAM technology in the treatment of craniofacial bone defects are not enough, which represents a novelty of our study.

  • Coverage root with graft connective tissue subpediculado with or without
           advance coronal. Systematic review

    • Authors: Yuritza Hernández-Arenas, Eilien Gisek Tovio Martinez, Antonio Díaz-Caballero
      Abstract: Background: Currently, there are various surgical techniques with subpediculated connective tissue grafting that allow achieving a total or high percentage root coverage, thus contributing to oral aesthetics and decision-making by professionals during clinical practice. Objective: The objective of this systematic review was to compare the effectiveness of two surgical techniques in terms of the level of root coverage obtained in the different types of gingival recessions. Methodology: the most relevant publications were selected through a search in electronic databases such as Medline, Pubmed, Science Direct and Dentistry & Oral Sciences Source. To be included in the review, the studies had to define the surgical technique used and the level of root coverage obtained subsequently. Results: a compilation of 18 articles was carried out that talk about the use of subpediculated connective tissue graft with or without coronal advancement, or only performing coronal advancement without the use of a graft as an aid, reaching a high level of root coverage, greater than 95% even after 3, 6 or 9 months after treatment. Conclusions: when evaluating the literature on subpediculated connective tissue graft with or without coronal advancement, a greater tissue gain was evident at the level of root coverage for procedures using the subpediculated connective tissue graft technique with coronal advancement, versus one that does not involve coronal advancement.

  • The relationship of grip strength and seniority in the occupation of a
           group of workers in the industrial sector in the Bogota city

    • Authors: Magda Viviana Monroy Silva, Christian Ricardo Zea Forero, Linda Lorena Narváez Zabala
      Abstract: Intoduction: The objective of this article is to establish the relationship of grip strength and seniority in the occupation of a group of workers in the industrial sector in the city of Bogotá. Methods: A cross-sectional, quantitative and correlational study was carried out in different companies in the industrial sector of the city of Bogotá, applying a standardized protocol for measuring grip force with a Jamar hydraulic dynamometer. The population was represented by 99 people, where 85 met the inclusion criteria, including 24 women and 61 men. Multiple linear regression was applied to analyze the correlation between maximum hand grip strength with age, gender and length of service. Results: A statistically significant relationship was identified between gender and hand grip strength, with P=1. 56E-15 for right hand grip strength and P=7.73E-11 for left hand grip strength. Length of occupation and age did not report a statistically significant influence on the intensity of grip strength in either hand. Conclusions: A direct relationship was found between gender and intensity of hand grip strength, and an inversely proportional relationship between age and hand grip strength. No statistically significant influence was found between seniority in occupation and hand grip strength

  • Oral contraceptives as a factor associated with pituitary adenomas:
           Systematic review / meta-analysis

    • Authors: Ledmar J. Vargas Rodríguez, Leidy Fonseca, Sofía Alejandra Vergara López, Mesa Espinal Mesa Espinal
      Abstract: Background: Pituitary adenomas are neoplasms that appear in the sella turcica, which appear a wide range of hormonal and proliferative behaviors, with a slow growth rate. Both estrogens and progestins in oral contraceptives often stimulate pituitary lactotropic cells, which can facilitate the development of hyperprolactinemia, along with hypertrophy and hyperplasia of these cells, and the development of pituitary tumors. Objective: To establish the association between the use of oral contraceptives and the development of pituitary adenomas in women older than 18 years. Materials and methods: A systematic literature review was performed. The searches were carried out by three researchers, using the databases of Pubmed / Medline, Science direct, Scopus, Embase, Cochrane Library, BIREME, Redalyc, Scielo and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Results: Three studies (573 cases and 794 controls) were included. The graphical forest of final results shows that the use of oral contraceptives is not associated with the presence or appearance of pituitary adenomas (OR 0.89 (95% CI 0.60 - 1.33). Conclusions: There is no association between the use of oral contraceptives and the development of pituitary adenomas in women older than 18 years.

  • Tomographic findings in peritoneal tuberculosis: case report

    • Authors: Cristhian Camilo Rivera, Rosa Amalia Dueñas Cuellar, Harold Bolaños Bravo, Germán Ruiz
      Abstract: Introduction: Peritoneal tuberculosis (TBCP) is a diagnostic challenge because the clinical, radiological and laboratory findings are nonspecific and can be confused with other pathologies. Presentation of the clinical case: Patient who consulted for intense abdominal pain, fever and diarrhea. TBCP was suggested based on abdominal CT findings, which was confirmed by histopathological analysis of parietal peritoneum biopsy and granulomatous lesions of the small intestine mesentery. The patient received an antituberculous regimen and was discharged from the hospital. Discussion and literature review: CPTB represents between 25-50% of abdominal tuberculosis cases and 0.1-0.7% of all tuberculosis cases, its clinical presentation includes ascites, abdominal pain, fever and diarrhea, making it indistinguishable from tuberculosis. Bacterial peritonitis and other chronic abdominal conditions. Conclusions: The diagnosis of TBCP is a challenge, however, the tomographic findings provide information that increases its suspicion and helps to avoid treatment delay and complications.

  • Adherence, suspension and therapeutic efficacy of hormonal contraceptives
           in university students. Cross sectional study

    • Authors: Carlos Alberto Niño Avendaño, Ledmar J. Vargas Rodríguez, Paula María Andrea Saavedra
      Abstract: Objective: The objective of the study was to estimate the prevalence of adherence, suspension and therapeutic efficacy, which may trigger unwanted pregnancies in university women between 17 and 30 years of age, who use or have used hormonal contraceptives as a family planning method. Materials and methods: An observational, cross-sectional study was carried out during the period between January 15 and March 15, 2020, which included students from the Faculty of Health Sciences of the Pedagogical University and Technological of Colombia. The variables studied corresponded to sociodemographic data, causes of treatment adherence, change of planning method and therapeutic failure. Results: the population average age was 21.9 years, evidencing greater use of oral contraceptives and 26.15% were advised by personnel other than health. Alcohol was the main substance consumed of those that interact with hormonal contraceptives. The main adverse reactions were headache, weight gain, and acne bleeding. The main reasons for non-adherence are related to the presence of adverse effects. Therapeutic efficacy was presented in 10.3% of the respondents. Conclusions: Although the study showed that the first cause of non-adherence was the cessation of sexual life, there is a high percentage of users with mild adverse reactions and, according to the person who provides the information, it can be seen that there are difficulty in attaching to the use of this type of medication.

  • Factors associated with unwanted pregnancy: Analytical study.

    • Authors: Ledmar J. Vargas Rodríguez, Carlos Alberto Niño Avendaño, Alfonso Barón Sánchez
      Abstract: Objective: To determine the factors associated with unwanted pregnancy in the adolescent population. Materials and methods: Analytical cross-sectional study. People with ages between 18 to 35 years old. Results: The average age was 21.61 years. Most of the respondents were female (61%). It was determined that people with a partner (OR 3.05), did not use planning in the first relationship (OR 5.62), did not use any planning method (OR 1.48), low / medium socio-economic stratum (OR 7.84), poor family relationship (OR 2.40) and the use of natural methods for planning (OR 2.64) are risk factors; while obtaining information from a health personnel person (OR0.32) and the origin of the urban area (OR 0.27) are protective factors. Conclusions: We can thus conclude that the prevalence of unwanted pregnancies is variable in the different populations, this can be associated with a solid education, where the principle of shared responsibility should be encouraged and that the couple must solidly face the consequences of their relationships.

  • Influence of breastfeeding in the development of allergic rhinitis in
           children

    • Authors: Claudia Paola Acevedo Villafañe
      Abstract: Introduction: There is controversy about the duration of exclusive breastfeeding and the prevention of rhinitis, so the study aimed to assess the role of exclusive breastfeeding in developing chronic allergic rhinitis in children. Materials and Methods: This is a case-control study with 500 children (18 months to 7 years), 250 children with allergic rhinitis and 250 controls without rhinitis. All patients received informed consent and a survey of parents or caregivers on the history of exclusive breastfeeding, initiation of complementary feeding, sociodemographic characteristics, family history of allergic diseases, and personal exposure to various allergens in the first year of life. Results: The proportion of patients with allergic rhinitis who received exclusive breastfeeding is lower than that of controls (32.0% vs. 24.4%, p = 0.059). The median time of breastfeeding in patients with rhinitis was 12 (IQR 6 to 22) months and 16 (IQR 8 to 24) months in controls (p = 0.026). Exclusive breastfeeding for six months or more is a protective factor for allergic rhinitis. Conclusions: Exclusive breastfeeding for more than six months is a protective factor for allergic rhinitis development in children. The risk of  allergic rhinitis was lower in children with prolonged breastfeeding (>6 months)

  • Factors associated with pancreatitis after endoscopic retrograted
           cholangiopancreatography: a single center's experience in the
           Colombian Caribbean

    • Authors: Christian German Ospina Pérez, Ivan David Lozada Martínez, José Carlos Posada Viana, Bernarda Cuadrado Cano
      Abstract: Background: Currently, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is one of the most useful studies in the therapeutic approach to pancreato-biliary diseases. However, being an invasive procedure, it carries a certain risk of complications, such as pancreatitis. In Latin America, there is a great lack of epidemiological research on factors associated with the development of post-ERCP pancreatitis. Methods: Retrospective, quantitative and analytical case-control research, where patients older than 18 years who had undergone ERCP between 2013-2018 were included. Controls were chosen in a 2:1 ratio, evaluating sociodemographic, clinical, paraclinical, surgical and post-surgical variables. Results:  A total of 180 ERCPs were identified, 32 cases of post-ERCP pancreatitis were detected (17.8%), and 64 patients were taken as controls. In the sample, female sex, pre-surgical ASA grade I, and pre-surgical diagnosis of predominantly lithiasis prevailed. When assessing risk by crude OR, there was an association of post-ERCP pancreatitis with the presence of abdominal pain (OR 4.2; 95% CI 1.6-10.7), pancreatic pain (OR 3.2; 95% CI 2. 3-4.3), vomiting (OR 4.2; 95% CI 1.1-15.6), abdominal distension (OR 8.3, 95% CI 2.4-10.4), lipase > 948 IU/L (OR 8.3; 95% CI 2.4-10.4) and amylase greater than 350 IU/L (OR 1.4; 95% CI 5.0-20.4). Conclusions:   Factors associated with post-ERCP pancreatitis were abdominal pain, pancreatic pain, vomiting, abdominal distension, elevated lipase and amylase

      Abstract: Background: Traumatic diaphragmatic injuries are rare, but their incidence has escalated due to the increase in traffic accidents and cases of urban violence. This pathology can be unnoticed under many circumstances, so a high level of suspicion is required to establish an early diagnosis and to prevent life-threatening complications. Case presentation: A 43-year-old male patient who is found in public street presenting a generally poor condition, with stigmata of trauma in the right frontotemporal region, deformity in the right humerus, multiple excoriations caused by friction, presumed to have suffered a traffic accident. The thorax was found with no deformities, no bone crepitus, and no signs of breathing difficulty. Discusion and literature review: Based on the injury mechanism, diaphragmatic trauma can be classified as blunt and penetrating trauma, attributing approximately two-thirds of cases to penetrating trauma (gunshots, stab wounds) and one-third to blunt trauma (car accident). The injured diaphragm presents a solution of continuity whose healing does not occur spontaneously and in the course of its evolution, migration from the abdominal organs to the pleural cavity may occur. The initial study in patients with suspected diaphragmatic lesion is usually a chest X-ray with diagnostic sensitivity in left-sided lesions ranging from 27%-62%, and for right-sided lesions, it is 17%-33%. Suggestive findings of diaphragmatic lesion include the collar sign (compression of the herniated organ at the point of the diaphragmatic lesion), bowel loops within the chest, arcing shadows in the left hemithorax, and the presence of the gastric chamber in the chest. Computed tomography is the study of choice in the polytraumatized patient for the evaluation of abdominal and thoracic trauma, due to its high sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of associated lesions.

  • Safe management of home enteral nutrition

    • Authors: Olga Lucia Pinzón-Espitia, Javier Leonardo González Rodríguez
      Abstract: Background: Perform an analysis of patient safety practices in nutritional care in hospital at home (Homecare).  Methods: A systematic review of the literature was conducted. To do this, we searched for articles through the PubMed®, ScienceDirect® and SciELO® databases, published in the last 10 years ( 1 June 2010 - 1 June 2020) in Spanish, English and Portuguese that included topics related to patient safety.   Conclusions: Enteral nutrition at home should aim to maintain or improve nutritional status and contribute to an adequate clinical evolution of patients. The recommendations identified correspond to indications related to processes, technology management, microbiological quality and nutritional composition of commercial nutritional formulas versus home-made diets as criteria to guarantee patient safety.

  • Use of a digital educational resource in teaching – learning insertion
           of a peripheral venous catheter

    • Authors: Consuelo Ortiz Suárez, Ximena Sáenz Montoya, Juan Carlos Diaz Alvarez, Luz Nelly Rivera Alvarez
      Abstract: Background: the use of information and communication technologies combined with clinical simulation, optimize the teaching- learning processes in the training of health care human resource. Objective: to evaluate the effectiveness of the “insertion of a peripheral venous catheter” as a digital and educational resource in the theoretical, conceptual, and procedural learning of nursing students. Place the question addressed in a broad context and highlight the purpose of the study. Methods: quasi-experimental study under carried within 91 participants separated into three learning groups. Group 1 was trained in intervention 1; Group 2 in intervention 2, and the Control Group CG received a traditional intervention scheme. The theoretical-conceptual knowledge was measured throughout a test and the procedural skills were measured though-out a checklist. Results:  theoretical-conceptual learning and procedural skills showed significant differences between the groups (p = 0.01). Intervention groups achieved higher scores when compared to the CG, for which although there was a slight increase in scores, these did not exceed the ones achieved by G1 and G2. Conclusions: the use of the “insertion of the peripheral venous catheter" as a digital educational resource, increases the theoretical-conceptual and procedural learning in nursing students, with higher levels of success when supervised by a trained teacher..
