Int J Cardiol. 2007 Jan 18;114(3):e122-3. Epub 2006 Oct 16. Right coronary artery aneurysm. Luz A, Silveira J, Carvalho H, Gomes L. Abstract Coronary artery aneurysms, characterized by abnormal dilatations of a localized portion of the coronary artery, are an uncommon finding during angiography. We present a case where a giant right coronary aneurysm was detected during angiography, in a patient admitted with a inferior wall myocardial infarction. PMID: 17049395 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
ABSTRACT Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (SPK) is the treatment of choice for selected diabetic patients with end-stage renal disease. Maintenance steroid therapy is associated with significant morbidity and mortality among SPK transplant recipients. Steroid withdrawal regimens are becoming more common, albeit with reservations regarding its safety and efficacy. We performed retrospective review of 77 SPK transplant recipients from May 2000 to December 2007. The subjects received induction therapy with thymoglobulin followed by maintenance immunosuppression with tacrolimus and myco- phenolate mofetil. late steroid withdrawal protocol was adopted. The rates of acute rejection, graft and patient survival, and side effects were analyzed. One-year patient, kidney, and pancreas survivals were 93%91...
La incidencia de criptorquidia es del 1% en niños de 1 año de edad, siendo en el 20% de los casos el testículo no palpable. El objetivo de este trabajo fue estudiar la contribución de la cirugía mínimamente invasiva en el diagnóstico y tratamiento de estos pacientes. Los autores realizaron un estudio prospectivo, analítico y longitudinal durante el período de enero de 2001 a diciembre de 2004, englobando 89 niños portadores de 98 testículos no palpables sometidos a laparoscopia. Los autores analizaron los siguientes parámetros: localización del testículo no palpable, examen objetivo bajo anestesia general ecografía inguinoescrotal, edad de la intervención, hallazgos laparoscópicos, tratamiento efectuado, resultados anatomopatológicos de las piezas extirpadas y seguimiento después de la cirugía.
Abnormal NK cell lymphocytosis detected after splenectomy: association with repeated infections, relapsing neutropenia, and persistent polyclonal B-cell proliferation. Granjo E, Lima M, Fraga M, Santos F, Magalhães C, Queirós ML, Moreira I, Rocha S, Silva AS, Rebelo I, Quintanilha A, Ribeiro ML, Candeias J, Orfão A. Department of Hematology, Hospital S. João, Porto, Portugal. npp46740@mail.telepac.pt Abstract We report the case of a boy with hereditary spherocytosis who presented with mild microcytic hypochromic anemia and recurrent leg ulcers that had been present since childhood. Chronic natural killer (NK) cell and B-cell lymphocytosis was detected 1 year after therapeutic splenectomy during investigation of recurrent episodes of neutropenia and persistent lymphocytosis. NK cells proved to be abnormal at immunophenotyping studies, a...
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality after renal transplantation (RT).[1] and [2] The excess risk of CVD in RT is due in part to a higher prevalence of established atherosclerotic risk factors, including hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes, obesity, and physical inactivity.[1] and [2] However, some renal-related risk factors like immunosuppressive medication and residual renal insufficiency also contribute to this excess CVD risk and may complicate the management of dyslipidemia and hypertension in this population.[1] and [2] Accordingly, there is a compelling need to identify and safely manage other putative CVD risk factors among RT patients. Elevated plasma homocysteine is emerging as an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease in general populations.[3] and 4 R Clarke, L Daly and K Robin...
A erisipela é uma infecção dermo-hipodérmica aguda, não necrosante, geralmente causada pelo estreptococo β–hemolítico do grupo A. Em mais de 80% dos casos situa-se nos membros inferiores e são factores predisponentes a existência de solução de continuidade na pele, o linfedema crónico e a obesidade. O seu diagnóstico é essencialmente clínico e baseia-se na presença de placa inflamatória associada a febre,linfangite, adenopatia e leucocitose. Os exames bacteriológicos têm baixa sensibilidade ou positividade tardia. Nos casos atípicos é importante o diagnóstico diferencial com a fasceíte necrosante e a trombose venosa profunda. A penicilina continua a ser o antibiótico de referência, embora actualmente diversos fármacos, com propriedades farmacodinâmicas mais favoráveis, possam ser utilizados. A recidiva constitui a complicação mais freq...
O avanço significativo das tecnologias não invasivas, na última década, permitiu maior clareza e rapidez na obtenção de diagnósticos complexos, no entanto, a suboptimização dos resultados ou as características intrínsecas dos doentes revelam que a avaliação invasiva é muitas vezes indispensável, como acontece na quantificação das perturbações hemodinâmicas associadas a doenças cardiovasculares. Segundo Morton,a interpretação da curva de pressão telediastólica do ventrículo esquerdo é muitas vezes um indicativo da sua capacidade funcional. O principal objectivo deste trabalho de investigação, foi avaliar o aumento da pressão telediastólica do ventrículo esquerdo (VE) em indivíduos submetidos a cateterismo cardíaco, e identificar a sua relação com a função ventricular esquerda.
