Abstract: background: adrenal gland neoplasm may be originated from diverse histological types. carcinomas are rare findings, and correspond to only 0,02% of all neoplasms. aim: to review the latest advances in relation to the treatment of adrenal gland carcinomas. methods: a literature review was performed using medline, text books and authors, as well as references obtained from relevant articles. conclusion: approximately 79% of adrenal gland carcinomas are functional. the most commonly secreted hormone is cortisol, which causes cushing′s syndrome. patients with non-functional lesions may complain about local growth of the lesion. this type of carcinoma is present in a series of other neoplasic syndromes of familiar origen. according to the symptoms, initial diagnostic investigation involves dosage of urinary cortisol, as well as aldosterone and renin serum levels. abdominal tomography or magnetic ressonance are first class image tests. fluorodeoxyglucose pet scan is a tool that can be used to differentiate benign and malignant lesions. fine needle biopsy is not indicated due to the high rate of complications. the choosen treatment is usually surgery with block ressection of adjacent organs if necessary. aortic and retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy should be performed. local recurrence and metastasis occur in 80% of the cases. cytoreductive surgical procedures benefit cases of advanced disease. quimiotherapy using mitotane is indicated to patients who were submitted to cytoreductive surgery, who have had local recurrence and in those with metastasis. radiotherapy is the treatment of choice in the event of bone metastasis and adjuvant treatment is used in a few cases with elevated recurrence risks. in adults, the overall average life span in 5 years varies between 10% to 35%. after curative surgery it varies between 20% to 58%.

Abstract: background: the ability of gastrointestinal surgical interventions, mainly bariatric surgery, to promote the control of type 2 diabetes, has already been well documented. aim: to review the literature related to the effects of gastrointestinal surgery regarding type 2 diabetes, especially in relation to metabolic control and its physiopathology. methods: literature was reviewed on medline, pages on the internet, references from relevant articles and studies presented and published on the annals of the international conference on gastrointestinal surgery to treat type 2 diabetes, which occurred in rome in 2007. conclusions: among all bariatric surgeries, biliopancreatic diversion, presented the best control rates for type 2 diabetes followed by gastric bypass and gastric banding. this control is related to weight loss and reduction on food intake. biliopancreatic diversion and gastric bypass also presented important modifications in gut hormones. the most significant ones being: glp-1, gip, pyy, ghrelin, leptin, igf-1, adiponectin. these hormones promote loss of appetite, promote actions over ? cells, increase the secretion of insulin, and increase insulin sensitivity. two theories have been formulated to explain the changes observed on these hormones: the foregut theory, where the bypass of the duodenum and proximal jejunum avoids the secretion of an unknown factor that induces insulin resistance; and the hindgut theory, where the early presentation of food to the ileum anticipates the production of hormones that control diabetes. recently, new promising procedures have been developed. among them are the duodenal-jejunal bypass, ileal interposition, and intestinal resection associated to vertical gastrectomy. these new procedures are still considered experimental.

Abstract: background: bariatric surgery is related to significant morbidity. mechanical complications such as stricture of the anastomotic sites are the most common causes of persistent nausea and vomiting. some patients present such symptoms in the absence of these complications. aim: to report the use of mirtazapine in a patient submitted to bariatric surgery, presenting persistent nausea and vomiting in the absence of mechanical complications, and unresponsive to conventional antiemetic drugs. case report: a morbidly obese patient submitted to laparoscopic roux-en-y gastric bypass presented persistent nausea and vomiting unresponsive to treatment with ondansetron, metoclopramide, and bromopride. no mechanical complications were identified. he was treated with an oral daily dose of 30 mg of mirtazapine for 60 days. after two days, the patient presented significant clinical improvement. mirtazapine is an effective drug most commonly used in the treatment of depression, presenting an antiemetic effect due to the blockade of 5-ht3 serotonin receptors in the brainstem. conclusion: mirtazapine can be useful in cases of roux-en-y gastric bypass that present nausea and vomiting unsuccessfully treated with conventional antiemetic drugs when mechanical causes are excluded.

Abstract: RACIONAL: A incontinência urinária é bem documentada como comorbidade da obesidade. Estudos demonstram resolu o ou atenua o da incontinência após a perda de peso. Porém, os mecanismos pelos quais isso ocorre ainda n o est o claros. OBJETIVO: Avaliar os efeitos da cirurgia bariátrica na fun o do assoalho pélvico em mulheres. MéTODOS: Foram avaliadas 30 mulheres que estavam em lista de espera para realizar a opera o. Foi verificada a prevalência de incontinência urinária no pré e no pós-operatório e seu impacto na qualidade de vida através do King's Health Questionnaire. A qualidade da contra o muscular do assoalho pélvico foi avaliada através da Escala de Oxford Modificada e da perineometria. RESULTADOS: Vinte e quatro mulheres finalizaram o estudo. O índice de massa corporal passou de 46,96±5,77 kg/m2 no pré-operatório para 29,97±3,48 kg/m2 no pós-operatório, e a perda percentual do excesso de peso média foi de 70,77±13,26%. A prevalência de incontinência urinária passou de 70,8% no pré-operatório para 20,8% no pós-operatório. Após um ano da cirurgia bariátrica, houve redu o do impacto da incontinência urinária na qualidade de vida em sete dos nove domínios avaliados no questionário. A mediana da Escala de Oxford Modificada aumentou de três no pré-operatório para quatro no pós-operatório. A perineometria apresentou aumento significativo na média das três contra es solicitadas, passou de 21,32±12,80 sauers para 28,83±16,17 sauers na compara o pré e pós-operatória. O pico de contra o também aumentou significativamente no pós-operatório em rela o ao pré-operatório, passou de 25,29±14,49 sauers para 30,92±16,20 sauers. CONCLUS O: A perda massiva de peso através da cirurgia bariátrica repercute positivamente na fun o do assoalho pélvico e na qualidade de vida das mulheres com obesidade mórbida.
