When the Silence Speaks: The Smile  [PDF]
Maria do Rosário Dias, Letícia Garcia Naben, Ana Lúcia Monteiro, Ana Ferreira, Valter Pedroso Alves, Ana Delgado
Journal of Biosciences and Medicines (JBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jbm.2018.611002
Abstract: Background: Understanding the importance, value and self-image that the smile represents in the daily life of the individual remains a subject of high scientific interest. Aim: The present qualitative and exploratory study aims at understanding the importance of the self-perception of the mouth and smile on the mental representation of self-image and the well-being of the individual. Materials and Methods: The convenience sample consisted of 151 children and youngsters of both genders, ages 8 - 24 years, who used an orthodontic appliance and were invited to draw two portraits of their mouth/smile. Results: The results suggest differences in the mental representation of the mouth and the smile, namely in the investment of the drawings before and after the use of the orthodontic appliance, as well as in the expressiveness and manifestation of emotions. Discussion and Conclusions: The results suggest that the main reason that leads participants to the treatment is related to aesthetic and functional issues in which the maximizing of the mental representation of the Orthodontic Smile emerges as a new categorization of the perfect smile.

Chaves, Lucieli Dias Pedreschi;Laus, Ana Maria;Anselmi, Maria Luiza;
Revista da Escola de Enfermagem da USP , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0080-62342009000100015
Abstract: hospitalizations represent an important share of healthcare, due to both the complexity of actions and the financial volume applied. this descriptive-exploratory investigation had the purpose to identify and describing the physical and financial production of hospitalizations performed in a school hospital in the state of s?o paulo, from 1996 to 2003, focusing the specialties of surgical clinic, medical clinic, pediatrics and obstetrics. data collection was performed by searching the official databanks of the studied institution. in that period, a global 8.5% reduction in the frequency of admittances and a 78.4% increase in the financial resources were observed. surgical clinic, with more expensive procedures, increased its admittances; the production in obstetrics showed the lowest variation. the increasing incorporation of technology, the demands from regional users and the migration of users from the supplementary system to the sus may justify the variation of production in the different specialties.
Basosquamous Cell Carcinoma of the Lower Lip Arising from Actinic Cheilitis: Case Report and up Date  [PDF]
Ana Maria de Oliveria Miranda, Thiago de Miranda Ferrari, Daniel Cohen Goldemberg, Luciana Pantale?o, Andrea Pires, Eliane Pedra Dias
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2013.412A1005

Background: Basosquamous carcinoma (BSC) is a rare non-melanoma skin cancer, considered to be a subtype of basal cell carcinoma (BCC). BSC often produces distant metastases with a higher risk of recurrence than that of BCC which is not commonly found in the lip. Case Report: A 57-year-old white female patient presented an ulcer on her lower lip that had an ongoing development for over six months. Physical examination, photo documentation, videoroscopy, scraped cytology, toluidine blue test, and biopsy of the ulcer were carried out. Results: Upon physical examination we observed an actinic cheilitis associated with the ulcer. Videoroscopy revealed the presence of fissures and erosion that had not been seen by oroscopy. Toluidine blue test was only positive for the region of the ulcer. Cytological analysis revealed rare nests compatible with carcinoma. Histopathology of the biopsy revealed a carcinoma with nests lined by basal cells associated with areas of squamous differentiation. The patient was then referred to surgery for the removal of the BCC. Analysis of the specimen showed free surgical margins and the immunohistochemical panel did not confirm the initial diagnosis of BCC, indicating a subtype of BSC. After surgery, the patient has been followed by periodic consultations. She is well and without further complications. Coments: BSC

Actinic Cheilitis: Clinical Characteristics Observed in 75 Patients and a Summary of the Literature of This Often Neglected Premalignant Disorder  [PDF]
Ana Maria de Oliveira Miranda, Thiago de Miranda Ferrari, Taiana Campos Leite, Karin Soares Gon?alves Cunha, Eliane Pedra Dias
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2014.521171
Abstract: Actinic cheilitis can progress to squamous cell carcinoma in 20% of cases. The purpose of this study was to identify the clinical characteristics of 75 patients with actinic cheilitis and to summarise the current literature concerning actinic cheilitis. A total of 75 patients were evaluated over a 3-year period. The medical history, physical examination results and images were collected from each patient. Demographic data were collected and analysed. To review the literature, the relevant data were collected from scientific journals in the last 30 years. The mean age of the patients was 56 years old; 42 patients (56%) were female, and 66 patients (88%) were white. Nineteen (25.3%) patients reported at least one symptom, including pain, burning and itching. Sixty-five (86.7%) patients presented actinic cheilitis only in the lower lip. All of the patients reported sun exposure, and 44 (58.6%) patients were exposed for more than 10 years. The main clinical aspects investigated and analysed included dryness (100%), flaking (72%) and white lesions (57.3%). Lip assessment is extremely important in medical and dental care. From the 15 lesions assessed in the presence of actinic cheilitis, the most common clinical characteristics observed were dryness, flaking and white lesions. It is imperative to know the clinical aspects that may be encountered in actinic cheilitis in order to achieve early diagnosis, thus avoiding lip squamous cell carcinoma transformation.
Health workers’ attitudes toward immigrant patients: a cross-sectional survey in primary health care services
Sónia Dias, Ana Gama, Helena Cargaleiro, Maria O Martins
Human Resources for Health , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1478-4491-10-14
Abstract: This cross-sectional study was conducted with a random sample of 400 health workers from primary health care services in the Lisbon region, Portugal. Among those, 320 completed a structured questionnaire. Descriptive analysis and multiple linear regression analysis were used for the evaluation of data.Most participants did not agree that immigrant patients tend to behave like victims, but about half considered that some are aggressive and dangerous. Doctors and nurses showed more positive attitudes than office workers. Among doctors, the older ones reported less positive attitudes compared to the younger ones. Health workers who have less daily contact with immigrants revealed more positive attitudes. Most participants evaluated their knowledge and competencies to work with immigrants as moderate or low.Although health workers reveal positive attitudes, this study reinforces the need to develop strategies that prevent negative attitudes and stereotyping in health services. Efforts should be made to improve workers’ competencies to deal with culturally diverse populations, in order to promote quality of health care and obtain positive health outcomes among immigrant populations.

Silva, Edson Dias da;Tozzi, Ana Maria Goulart de Azevedo;
Biota Neotropica , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1676-06032011000400026
Abstract: this study brings the inventory of the leguminosae species which occur in an area of ombrophilous dense forest from the north coast of the state of s?o paulo, in altitudes that vary from the restinga forest, close to the sea level, to the vegetation at the top of the cuscuzeiro mountain, between 1,000 to 1,279 m of altitude. the floristic survey involved the collecting of herbs, subshrubs, shrubs, trees and lianas and was done going through ranges in the different phytophysiognomies. the leguminosae family is well represented in the ombrophilous dense forest of picinguaba nucleus (108 species), this reinforces the premise that their species play an important role in the composition and structure of this forest. nineteen species are endemic to the atlantic forest. the ombrophilous dense forest of picinguaba nucleus has a larger number of taxa of leguminosae than presented in previous papers, which demonstrates that the presence this family in the forests of the north coast of s?o paulo is even more significant than previously estimated. besides a genera and species list with their corresponding keys to identification, illustrations, information on flowering and fruiting periods, dispersal syndromes geographical distribution are also presented.

Silveira, Adriana Parada Dias da;Lima, Ana Maria Liner Pereira;
Bragantia , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S0006-87051996000100023
Abstract: a greenhouse experiment was conducted to verify the effect of arbuscular mycorrhiza on growth and flowering of chrysanthemum. rooted plants were inoculated with gigaspora margarita, glomus leptotichum, glomus macrocarpum e scutellospora heterogama or non-inoculated. plants were grown in a autoclave sterilized, and non-sterilized soil of the type "terra roxa estruturada". at the flowering stage, plants were harvested and measured for plant height, shoot dry matter, root fresh matter, shoot p and k content, mycorrhizal root colonization and number of mycorrhizal fungi spores. plants colonized with g.leptotichum and g. macrocarpum presented higher growth and flowering than control plants, in sterilized soil, overcoming the effect of native mycorrhizal fungi. however, there was no effect of introduced mycorrhizal fungi on non-sterilized soil.
