Psychometric research on widely used questionnaires aimed at measuring experiential avoidance of chronic pain has led to inconclusive results. To test the structural validity, internal consistency, and construct validity of a recently developed short questionnaire: the Acceptance and Action Questionnaire II-pain version (AAQ-II-P). Cross-sectional validation study among 388 adult patients with chronic nonspecific musculoskeletal pain admitted for multidisciplinary pain rehabilitation in four tertiary rehabilitation centers in the Netherlands...

Psychotic and borderline patients rated their self-image and their perception of their mother and father using the Structural Analysis of Social Behavior model (SASB). The borderline patients had more negative images of themselves and their parents, especially their fathers, than did the psychotic patients and the normal subjects, while the psychotic patients' ratings did not differ much from those of the normal subjects. The self-image was related to the images of both parents for borderline patients and normal subjects, while for the psychotic patients only the image of the mother was important for the self-image...

Health science education is presently in discussion throughout Europe due to the Bologna Declaration. Teaching basic sciences such as biochemistry in a health sciences context, namely in allied heath education, can be a challenging task since the students of preclinical health sciences are not often convinced that basic sciences are clinically valuable (J. R. Rudland, S. C. Rennie (2003) The determination of the relevance of basic sciences learning objectives to clinical practice using a questionnaire survey, Med...

Liquid nitrogen is the most common medium used by tissue banks for the storage of cryopreserved heart valves. This study evaluates the effect of the length of storage on human cryopreserved heart valves. Human tissues (14 aortic and 13 pulmonary) were frozen in a controlled-rate freezer (1 degrees C/min) and stored in the liquid phase of a nitrogen tank for 9.1+/-1.6 years. The preservative solution was medium M199 containing 5% human serum albumin and 10% Me(2)SO. After thawing in a water bath at 42 degrees C, the cryoprotectant was removed...

This study aims to analize the violence between couples from the man's point of view. We adopted a qualitative methodology approach having as reference the Social Representation Theory. Ten adult men took part in the survey. They live in the Calafate community, in San Martin, Salvador-BA and had a relationship for at least 2 years. In order to collect the data, a semi-estructured interview was used. As a result, it was observed that the respondents agree directly with the process of men and women's socialization in order to define the way husband and wife behave in a relationship...

The intestinal-type adenocarcinoma of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses are uncommon tumors, with less than 4% of the total of malignancies of this region. They have histological similitudes with the glandular estructure of the intestinal mucosa. In some aspects they are similar to others tumors of this area, symptoms, an etiological relation with the exposure to wood dust ... but they have differences in the local aggressivity, this is important for the tractament, evolution and survival. The authors present a revision about clinic characteristics, diagnostic and tractament of seven cases of nasosinusal intestinal type adenocarcinoma...

The c-Ha-ras1 gene belongs to an eucaryotic ubiquitous gene family which codes important molecules involved in the transduction of mitogenic signals and of cellular differentiation. The c-Ha-ras1 estructure, in four coding exons and a non-coding 5'exon, is highly preserved throughout evolution. This gene, which generates a 1.4 Kb transcript, is expressed in practically all the cell lineages with a tissue-specific pattern. The coded protein, of 189 amino acids and 21 kDa, is a small protein that binds guanine nucleotides (GTP/GDP), is associated with the plasma membrane and possesses low intrinsic GTPase activity...

Neurofibromatoses (NF1 and NF2) are genetic diseases with an extremely wide range of manifestations, particularly NF1. In order to gain insight into their prognosis, we have conducted a follow-up study of 100 patients with neurofibromatoses, 89 NF1 patients and 11 NF2 patients all of them presenting neurological manifestations. Four deaths occurred in the NF1 group (3 neurofibrosarcomas) and two in the NF2 group (after neurosurgery). We describe a series of NF1 brainstem tumors as being pilocytic astrocytomas, much less aggressive than non-NF1 brainstem tumors but more symptomatic than brainstem UBOs ('unidentified bright objects') in NF1...

Sexual activity, function and libido in 50 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease and no signs of mental deterioration were evaluated by an estructured questionnaire. The sample included 36 men and 14 women with a mean age of 57.9 +/- 10.1 years and a mean time elapsed since onset of 7.01 +/- 3.9 years. We found decreased sexual activity in 68% and a lack of libido admitted by 26%. Although the decrease in sexual activity was found more often in women, this dysfunction was not statistically significant...

Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis is a rare disease of unknown etiology which consists of alveolar deposit of calcium microspheres. We report the procedures for the diagnosis of this disease, as well as the hemodynamic features of the pulmonary circulation. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), and cor pulmonale were documented. The active and passive factors involved in PAH are analyzed. We conclude that alveolar hypoxia and estructural vascular changes play a major role in the genesis of PAH.

The authors studied the staining of specimens of composite resins, when they were immersed in Lugol solution. In this study, we related chemical and photo-activated resins, and the estructure modifications were analysed in relation to the consulted bibliography. The use of Lugol solution showed a practical way to identify the possible modifications in the polymeric structure of the composite resins.

Twenty-nine elderly were assessed on the attitudes toward aging before and after attending to an Estructural Educational Program (EEP), with a participative methodology. The program's objective was to strength and reorient the attitudes of aceptation, integration and communication. Subjects have been part of an urban sector of low social economical status from Cali, Colombia. A quasiexperimental research design, with a convenient sample was used. It was applied a questionnaire to each subject to collect biopsychosocial data, a Lickert scale before and after the EEP to measure attitudes, as well as an observational guide to measure individual and group behavior before and after each class...

Thirty five patients with anorrectal malformations are reviewed. These are divided in high and low anomalies according to some simple clinical data, better than the drawing of reference lines to determinate the height of puborrectalis muscle. Malformations were associated in 13 cases with urinary tract estructural anomalies and in four cases with isolated vesico-ureteral reflux. Diagnosis of urinary tract infection was made in 14 patients, 12 of them with recto-urinary fistula. A point is made about the complete and early exploration of all these patients to prevent irreparable renal damage that could be developed...
