Subcutaneous emphysema is a possible but rare complication after dental procedures. The condition should be distinguished from other situations, such as hematoma, allergic reaction or angioedema, and infection. We describe the case of a 20-year-old puerperal woman, with multiple dental caries, who developed cervicofacial subcutaneous emphysema complicated by pneumomediastinum, following an incomplete extraction of the lower right second molar. This was diagnosed clinically and through imaging tests, and the situation resolved after hospital admission, with antibiotics and close monitoring...

Luís Fonseca, Luís Ribeiro, Jorge Pinheiro, Ana Guerra
Parona Space infection is a rare forearm condition. We present a case of a 55-year-old male with pain and loss of function in the distal forearm for one week, with no previous history of trauma. Additionally, he presented a history of odontogenic infection, synchronous with the onset of the symptoms in the forearm, with spontaneous resolution. The wrist ultrasound found an abscess in the Parona space that was surgically drained. The bacterial culture test was positive for Streptococcus constellatus. Oral evaluation revealed symptomatic exacerbation in the upper left second molar of chronic periodontitis...

REVIEW
João Silva Nunes, Rebeca Gomes, Ana Povo, Eurico Castro Alves
INTRODUCTION: According to several studies conducted in North America and Europe, ambulatory surgery is a practice that has grown over the years, and both the number of more complex surgical procedures deemed suitable for ambulatory surgery and the number of patients with different co-morbidities which are now suitable for this type of procedure have been increasing. In order to respond to the increased number of day surgeries, as well as to avoid a potential proportional increase in perioperative morbidity, quality control systems must be adopted to enable continuous improvement and minimise predicted risks...

INTRODUCTION: There is no international consensus regarding gestational diabetes mellitus diagnostic criteria. In Portugal, the Carpenter and Coustan criteria were replaced by an adaptation of the International Association of Diabetes and Pregnancy Study Groups criteria. Our aim was to compare the incidence and outcomes of pregnancies complicated by gestational diabetes mellitus according to the current and previous criteria. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of 1218 singleton pregnancies complicated with gestational diabetes mellitus, with surveillance/delivery between 2008-2015...

INTRODUCTION: According to the OECD, Portugal and Poland rank below average in several well-being measures such as income and wealth, and health status. Investigating how people perceive the threats to health in these two countries, is an important issue to address priority needs. To meet this need, the objective of this paper was to compare the perceptions of the threats to the health and well-being among the Polish and Portuguese older persons and explore differences between the countries in respect of patterns of self-rated health...

Pedro Coelho, Lara N Ferreira, Clara Vital, José Fragata
INTRODUCTION: Aortic valve replacement surgery is done to increase patients' life expectancy and improve their health-related quality of life. Several published studies have found improvement in health-related quality of life after this procedure, but none have involved patients in Portugal. This study sought to evaluate patients' health-related quality of life after the implantation of aortic prostheses and compare these values with preoperative health-related quality of life and the general Portuguese population's health-related quality of life...

INTRODUCTION: Obesity is often accompanied by psychological distress and both can reduce patients' quality of life. Bariatric surgery is proven to be a good method to reduce weight and to alleviate comorbidities, leading ultimately to an improvement in quality of life. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The authors studied 80 patients enrolled in the Multidisciplinary Bariatric Unit of a central hospital in Porto, Portugal. Patients submitted to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve procedures were compared...

INTRODUCTION: Management of diabetes mellitus is largely dependent on patients' active participation in care. The 'Patient Activation Measure 13' assesses patients' knowledge, skills, and confidence in self-care. We aimed to translate, culturally adapt, and validate the 'Patient Activation Measure 13' to Portuguese, in people with type 2 diabetes. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The translation and cultural adaptation occurred in six phases. A convenience sample of people with type 2 diabetes was recruited from the waiting rooms of a diabetes outpatient centre in Lisbon, between March and April 2014...

Fibromyalgia can be clinically defined by widespread pain lasting for longer than 3 months with tenderness on palpation in 11 or more of 18 specified tender points. Many people with fibromyalgia are significantly disabled, and experience moderate to severe pain for many years, for which conventional analgesics are usually not effective. For these patients treatment options generally include antidepressants like tricyclic agents, serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors, or anticonvulsants like pregabalin or gabapentin...
