BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Chronic subclinical volume overload occurs very frequently and may be ubiquitous in hemodialysis (HD) patients receiving the standard thrice-weekly treatment. It is directly associated with hypertension, increased arterial stiffness, left ventricular hipertrophy, heart failure, and eventually, higher mortality and morbidity. We aimed to assess for the first time if the relationship between bioimpedance assessed overhydration and survival is maintained when adjustments for echocardiographic parameters are considered...

BACKGROUND: Masseter hypertrophy has been treated with botulinum toxin injections because of esthetic complaints especially in Asians. OBJECTIVES: The goal of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of abobotulin toxin use in masseter hipertrophy treatment in Brazilians. METHODS: Ten Brazilian female patients with masseter hypertrophy were subjected to injections of 90U of abobotulinum toxin A applied on each side respecting the safety zone stabilished in literature and were followed up for 24 weeks...

INTRODUCTION: Sleep disordered breathing patients usually undergo an ENT clinical examination before any therapeutic decision is taker. This clinical examination should be predictive about the occurrence of OSAS, reproductible and should determine the sites of obstruction in the upper airways. We have evaluated the clinical ENT examination and compared it with the bibliography in order to standardize it. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We have done the same clinical ENT examination to 181 patients...

The obstructive lesions in the outflow tracts of hearts with complete transposition of the great arteries determine the clinical evolution, prognosis, and the selection of surgical procedures. Their knowledge is basic to interpret the imaging findings. From the pathologic specimens collection of the Instituto Nacional de Cardiología "Ignacio Chávez", seventy-tree hearts with this cardiopathy were studied morphologically with the sequential segmental system. Thirty-two hearts had outflow tracts anomalies, being obstructive twenty-eight; among these lesions were: malposition of the infundibular septum, hipertrophyc left infundibulum, prolapse of tricuspid valve tissue through a ventricular septal defect, accessory mitral valve tissue, septal hipertrophy at the left outflow tract level, abnormal insertion of cord tendinae of the mitral valve, anticlockwise malposition of the mitral valve (first report in the literature)...

The aim of this work is to analyze the experience in our pediatric center on the surgical management of mammary malformation in teenagers. We have reviewed or mammaplasty cases until 1999 (n = 24). We have divided them in two groups: augmentation (A) and reduction (R) mammaplasty. The analyzed parameters were: ethiology, associated pathology, surgical approach, aesthetic results and complications. Group A (n = 14; 17 implants). The surgical indication was moderate-severe mammary hypoplasia with psychological repercussion...

AIM: Rejection results in destruction of the intestinal mucosa. This is the major cause of morbidity and morbility in human allografts. The aim of this study was to investigate histomorphometric changes in both the graft and recipient intestinal mucosa after experimental orthotopic small bowel transplantation. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Using the pig model, 21 large-white pigs underwent: laparotomy (n = 7) (control group); orthotopic small bowel transplantation without immunosuppression (n = 7); and orthotopic small bowel transplantation with cyclosporine A (n = 7)...

PURPOSE: To compare the correlation between the departure areas (DA), negative or positive, in patients whose electrocardiogram showed left bundle branch block (LBBB) and association with left ventricular hipertrophy (LVH) and myocardial infarction (MI), to the electrocardiographic (ECG) and vectocardiographic (VCG) classic criteria. METHODS: The study was carried out with 46 patients (27 males) with LBBB. These patients had hypertension (19.5%), coronary heart disease (34...

127 patients whose age was from 36 to 68 years old, affected by coeundi impotence, have been started to pharmaco-injection. 44 of these patients practised self-injection for 3 years: 25% once a week, 60% fortnightly and 15% once a month. The 60% of first group patients showed a certain fibrotic plaque between the 11th and the 13th month. At the end of the first year two patients with significative penile deviation underwent to corporoplasty. The 40% (6 patients) that made injection every 15-20 days showed fibrotic plaque between the 22nd and the 32nd month...

In 92 patients affected from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (C.O.P.) undergoing spirometric evaluation, the ability of the Pipberger computer program for electrocardiographic interpretation to predict the presence of pulmonary disease with or without right ventricular hipertrophy was compared with that of the manually measured conventional and orthogonal (Frank system) electrocardiogram. The patients were classified as having mild, moderate and severe C.O.P. on the basis of spirometric data. Each system predicted the presence of C...
