METHODS: this was a cross-sectional study using the Oral Health Services Quality Assessment Questionnaire, with a probabilistic sample of 256 patients, using multiple linear regression to identify variables associated with their satisfaction. RESULTS: most patients stated they were satisfied (86.7%), followed by barely satisfied (10.2%) and very satisfied (3.1%); there were differences in satisfaction among patients attending the different SDCs; independent variables associated with patient satisfaction were 'improved self-perceived oral health' (p=0...

During a medical entomology course in Boa Vista, Roraima, colonies of Triatoma maculata closely associated with pigeon nests were observed in concrete air-conditioner box located on the external plastered and cemented walls of a modern brick-built apartment block. In only one eight-hole ceramic brick, located inside one air-conditioner box, 127 specimens of T. maculata were collected. T. maculata is a recognised vector of Trypanosoma cruzi in the surrounding area and its domiciliation increases the risk of Chagas disease transmission...

OBJECTIVE: to obtain information about the current knowledge and habits of parents who transport children in cars in Brazil. METHODS: a cross-sectional survey was conducted using specifically designed self-responded questionnaires, to parents of children attending a private pediatric office in town in southwest Brazil. Data was collected about children's age, gender, height and weight, possession of automobile children's restraint systems (CRS), its type, frequency and adequacy of use, reasons for not possessing or not using the devices...

BACKGROUND: The rate of Parkinson's disease (PD) progression varies widely between patients. Current knowledge does not allow to accurately predict the evolution of symptoms in a given individual over time. OBJECTIVES: To develop regression-based models of PD progression and to explore its predictive value in a three-year follow-up. METHODS: At baseline, 300 consecutive PD patients were assessed using the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) - subscales II and III, Hoehn & Yahr (H&Y) and Schwab and England Independence Scale (S&E); and the Freezing of Gait Questionnaire (FOG-Q)...

Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) cases comprise a heterogeneous group of hematological disorders that are characterized by impaired hematopoiesis, with cytopenias of different grades and risk of developing acute myeloid leukemia. MDS may rarely be associated with thrombocytosis. In such cases, myelodysplasia and myeloproliferative disorders may overlap, making correct diagnosis difficult. We herein describe a case of MDS with thrombocytosis, Janus kinase 2 gene mutation-positive and Perls' staining-negative, which was initially classified as essential thrombocythemia (ET)...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Although it has become clear that aneurysmal and occlusive arterial disease represent two distinct etiologic entities, it is still unknown whether the two vascular pathologies are prognostically different. We aim to assess the long-term vital prognosis of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysmal disease (AAA) or peripheral artery disease (PAD), focusing on possible differences in survival, prognostic risk profiles and causes of death. METHODS: Patients undergoing elective surgery for isolated AAA or PAD between 2003 and 2011 were retrospectively included...

PURPOSE: To analyze the effects of aortic anatomy and endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) inside and outside the instructions for use (IFU) on outcomes in patients treated for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA). METHODS: All 112 patients (mean age 73 years; 102 men) treated with standard EVAR for rAAA between 2000 and 2012 in 3 European centers were included in the retrospective analysis. Patients were grouped based on aortic anatomy and whether EVAR was performed inside or outside the IFU...

The objectives were to estimate the prevalence of non-adherence to Pap smear testing in women attending prenatal care and to identify associated factors. This was a cross-sectional population-based study in 308 women from a rural municipality (county) in Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Complex stratified cluster sampling was used. Statistical analysis used the chi-square test and logistic regression model with the variables that presented p-value ≤ 0.05 in the bivariate model. Prevalence of lack of Pap smear test was 21...

Radiotherapy is widely used for advanced rectal tumors. However, tumor recurrence after this treatment tends to be more aggressive and is associated with a poor prognosis. Uncovering the molecular mechanism that controls this recurrence is essential for developing new therapeutic applications. In the present study, we demonstrated that radiation increases the EphA4 activation level of the survivor progeny of colorectal cancer cells submitted to this treatment and that such activation promoted the internalization of a complex E-cadherin-EphA4, inducing cell-cell adhesion disruption...

BACKGROUND: It is unclear how mortality and causes of death vary between patients and surgical procedures and how occurrence of postoperative complications is associated with prognosis. This study describes long-term mortality rates and causes of death in a general surgical population. Furthermore, we explore the effect of postoperative complications on mortality. METHODS: A single-centre analysis of postoperative complications, with mortality as primary endpoint, was conducted in 4479 patients undergoing surgery...

AIM: Cervical dentin hypersensitivity (CDH) is defined as an acute pain of short duration that occurs in dentin exposed to the oral environment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effi cacy of three desensitizing toothpastes (Sensodyne® Rapid-Relief, Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief, Nano P®) for immediate and intermediate-term relief of CDH, when compared with a control toothpaste (Cocoricó®). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eight patients were enrolled in this clinical study...

Dengue virus-type 2 (DENV-2) caused three outbreaks, in the years 1990, 1998, and 2008, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 2008 outbreak was the most severe in reported cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. To investigate virological and epidemiological factors that may have contributed to the pathogenic profile of 2008 epidemic, 102 patients sera obtained during the epidemic and inter-epidemic periods of three outbreaks were analysed by qRT-PCR to estimate viremia levels and their correlation with the clinical, immunological, and demographic patient characteristics...

Brazil has an increasing rate of e-waste generation, but there are currently few adequate management systems in operation, with the largest share of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) going to landfill sites or entering informal chains. The National Solid Waste Policy (2010) enforces the implementation of reverse logistics systems under the shared responsibility of consumers, companies and governments. The objective of this paper is to assess sustainability and prioritise system alternatives for potential implementation in the metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro...

Silicosis is an occupational lung disease with no effective treatment. We hypothesized that dasatinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, might exhibit therapeutic efficacy in silica-induced pulmonary fibrosis. Silicosis was induced in C57BL/6 mice by a single intratracheal administration of silica particles, whereas the control group received saline. After 14 days, when the disease was already established, animals were randomly assigned to receive DMSO or dasatinib (1 mg/kg) by oral gavage, twice daily, for 14 days...

The aim of the present study was to estimate the prevalence and regional spread of bovine tuberculosis in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, to identify herd-level risk factors, and to provide guidance for disease control and mitigation of its impact in public health. The study comprised a large-scale random sample survey of 22,990 animals and 1586 herds, distributed in seven regions. A questionnaire was applied on each farm to collect epidemiological and herd management data. Overall, 5.04 % of herds and 0...

BACKGROUND: Life expectancy and causes of death after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair are not well characterized. Population aging and improved secondary prevention may have modified the prognosis of these patients. We designed a retrospective cohort study to determine the vital prognosis, causes of death, and differences in outcome after intact and ruptured AAA. METHODS: All patients with AAA treated from 2003 to 2011 at a single university institution in The Netherlands were analyzed...
