Abstract: objective: to determine the success rate and safety of percutaneous closure of patent ductus arteriosus (pda) with a detachable coil. methods: forty-one children with small-to moderate-size pda (maximum diameter < 4 mm) underwent percutaneous coil occlusion. the results were assessed by angiography and echocardiography the mean age was 2.0 ± 1.3 years (range 0.6 to 5.6 years); mean weight was 10.0 ± 3.4 kg (range 4.5 to 18.0 kg). the mean minimum diameter of the pda was 1.7 ± 0.6 mm (range, 0.5 to 4.0 mm). results: the occlusion device was inserted in 39 of 41 patients (95%). the mean coil/pda ratio was 3.41 ±1.1. we observed angiographic cessation of blood flow through the pda after coil insertion in 18 patients; 18 patients had residual shunt, 3 mild shunt and 2 moderate shunt. no complications were observed during the procedure. thirty-five patients showed absence of blood flow through pda 24 hours after coil occlusion by echocar-diography the other four patients with residual shunt showed flow cessation after 2 months in two patients and after 6 months in the other two. failure of coil insertion in two patients was due to detachment of the pulmonary edge of the coil, which was subsequently removed in one, and due to coil migration in the other, both patients underwent surgical pda closure. mean follow-up at 29.5 ± 16.5 months showed no residual blood flow through the occluded pda, except for one patient. conclusion: our results, as many others, suggest that pda coil occlusion is a safe, effective, and cheap procedure. pda coil occlusion should be the elective method for pda closure in patients older than 6 months of age with small-to moderate size pda(< 4 mm). the procedure in newborn infants and patients with larger pda must be made with a different type of occlusive device.

Abstract: objective: percutaneous closure of patent ductus arteriosus (pda) is a well established technique. our objective was to determine the safety and efficacy of the amplatzer occluder for the treatment of pda in children. methods: from november 2005 to june 2007 we reviewed the clinical records of 39 patients (23 girls and 16 boys), with a mean age of 19.8 ± 13.7 months and weight 9.2 ± 3.2 kg, who underwent percutaneous closure of a pda with an amplatzer device. the forty one percent of the patients (16/39) were < 1 year of age, and 71.8 % (28/39) weighed < 10 kg. the age of children with body weight < 10 kg was 13.1 ±6.1 months (range 5-33 months). the morphology of the pda was determined by a lateral aortogram and classified according to krichenko. all the patients were followed-up with radiologic and echocardiographic control at 24 hours, 1, 3, 6 and 12 months postinsertion (median 20 months). results: the pda diameter ranged between 2.0 mm to 12 mm (3.6 mm ± 2.0 mm) in the 39 patients included. pda types according to krichenko were: type a = 25 (64.1%), type b = 1 (2.6%), type c = 5 (12.8%), type d = 2 (5.1%) and type e = 3 (7.7%). three patients had a residual pda post-surgical closure attempt. qp/qs ratio was 2.4 ± 1.5 (range 1.0-6.7) and the relation psp/pss was 0.49 ± 0.18 (range: 0.21-0.87). pulmonary hypertension was present in 16 patients (41%). the amplatzer occluder was implanted successfully in 36/39 patients (92.3%). the procedure failed in three cases: 1) difficulty to place the device due to wrong assessment of the ductus size; 2) difficulty to advance the device due to angulation (kinking) of the releasing system; 3) migration of the device to descending aorta. the mean time of fluoroscopy and for the entire procedure was 13.2 ± 6.3 minutes and 65.3 ± 21.9 minutes, respectively. there were no deaths with the procedure. minor and mayor complications occurred in eight patients, all of them but one, in children with body weight < 10 kg. in the 36 success

Abstract: objectives: to describe the clinical characteristics, outcome, and treatment response in a series of patients with kawasaki disease (kd). methods: case-series, review of clinical records of children with kd diagnosis cared for from november 1999 to september 2006. results: 22 patients were included, male:female ratio, 1.4:1, 82% younger than 5 years, 14% with atypical presentation. of the 22 patients, 10 (45%) received intravenous gammaglobulin (ivgg) in the first 10 days of symptoms onset at the recommended dose; four of them had coronary artery damage but none developed residual aneurysmatic lesions. eight received ivgg in a different dose or after 10 days, six of them had coronary lesions and in two the damage was permanent. four patients did not receive ivgg, and two had residual aneurysmatic lesions. none of those who received adequate treatment developed coronary residual damage, in comparison with 33% who received inadequate or no treatment, but difference was not statistically significant (p =.06). conclusions: kd is a rare clinical entity in our country; even though most of the cases occurred with classic clinical criteria, late referral and delay of treatment worsen the prognosis.
Interaction within the Caregiver-Elderly Dyad: The Effect of a Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention  [PDF]
Karina Reyes-Jarquín, Ana Luisa González-Celis, Rebeca Guzmán-Salda?a, Angélica Romero-Palencia
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2018.912153
Abstract: The caregiving function implies providing help with the Basic Activities of Daily Living, or with the Instrumental Activities of Daily Living. In the case of the elderly residing in Gerontological Attention Centers, this function is provided for by gerontological specialists, which can be identified as formal caregivers. The relationship between caregiver and elderly is particularly interesting due to the physical, psychological, and health implications that the former enacts over the person receiving care. Thus, the objective of this research was to evaluate the effect of a Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention, directed towards formal caregivers of the elderly, on the interaction between the members of this dyad. This intervention was evaluated through behavioral categories, using repeated measures ANOVA and Cohen’s “d” analyses and the results indicate that caregivers increased the execution of activities within the positive behavioral categories, while the elderly residing in the centers also showed improvements in all the evaluations despite not having received any intervention whatsoever, but, instead, as a response to the changes manifested in their caregivers.

Sallas, Ana Luisa Fayet;
História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-59702010000200009
Abstract: this analysis of the accounts and iconographic production of german travelers wied-neuwied (1815-1817), karl friedich von martius (1817-1820), and johann moritz rugendas (1822-1825) explores the construction of an imagination about indigenous peoples, history, and nation. it shows the relationship between the ideas and images produced by these voyagers and the debate on nature in the new world. most importantly, it examines their endeavors as a process of constructing a history of brazil and its people, uncovering the meanings and possibilities relevant to the civilizing process underway and their role in this context.
