Abstract: The relationship of anticardiolipin antibodies (ACA), markers of the antiphospholipid syndrome, with vascular complications of diabetes mellitus is polemic. This cross-sectional study assessed the frequency of IgG, IgM, and IgA ACA in type 2 diabetics with and without history of vascular events for the last 5 years, and in healthy controls. ACA were detected by enzyme immunoassay. A total of 73 type 2 diabetics (33 with history of vascular events) and 54 healthy controls were tested. Most diabetics were female (p = 0.003), and older than controls (p < 0.001). Mean duration of disease was 10 years. The prevalence of a positive ACA test was 7.4% in controls and 9.5% in diabetics (p = 0.910). Comparison of healthy controls and diabetics with and without history of macrovasculopathy, after adjusting for gender and age, showed no significant differences as to the presence of ACA (p > 0.09). ACA positivity rates were also similar when diabetics with and without history of vasculopathy were compared (p > 0.47). After adjusting for gender, age, hypertension, and smoking status, a weak but statistically insignificant association between IgM ACA and diabetics with vasculopathy was found (adjusted OR 2.7; 95% CI 0.2 - 34.2; p = 0.441). Overall, levels of IgG (r = 0.25; p = 0.005) and IgM (r = 0.23; p = 0.010) ACA were associated with increasing age. In short, the frequency of a positive ACA test in type 2 diabetics (with or without previous macrovasculopathy) was not significant as compared to healthy controls. There was no association of ACA with vascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Abstract: My paper examines the uses of language in a Rochester city public elementary school compared to the uses of language in a suburban, accelerated after school program. The goal of this research was to address how language is employed in these two classrooms and if rhetorical variations between the two are indicative of their community’s economic, social, and racial differences. From my experience working at each facility, I was able to observe how specific language operates and in what context over the course of three weeks. I consulted visual, auditory, and carefully written recordings of structured classes and of free time at each facility. As a result, I have located salient differences in the way two institutions of disparate levels of income negotiate language and how that “class-coded” language affects the students. Namely, these differences delineate the following: what are considered appropriate and forbidden words around children, disciplinary tactics believed to be most effective, strategies in executing effective lesson plans, and types of social bonding within the classroom. Depending on how teachers use language in the classroom, children receive starkly different structural education as well as social education. Thus, examining different classrooms’ language choices and their effects on students allows us to adapt our language and elevate children’s education in any classroom, regardless of economic status.

Abstract: we report the use of a genetic test for therapeutic decision making in a case of primary hyperparathyroidism associated with cushing's disease (cd). a 20-year-old woman was evaluated for gradual weight gain, asthenia, muscle pain, and hypertension. biochemical and radiologic tests confirmed cd and she underwent transsphenoidal surgery. immunohistochemistry of the microadenoma was positive for adrenocorticotropic hormone (acth). on follow-up, hypercalcemia with high parathyroid hormone (pth) levels was detected, associated with nephrolithiasis and low bone mineral density in the spine and hip. parathyroid scintigraphy showed tracer uptake in the inferior region of the left thyroid lobe, and cervical ultrasound showed a heterogeneous nodule in the same area, suggestive of a parathyroid adenoma (pa). genetic testing detected mutation in the men 1 gene and total parathyroidectomy with the implantation of a fragment of one gland in the forearm was performed. pathology showed a pa and 3 normal parathyroid glands, without hyperplasia, despite the diagnosis of men 1. this case illustrates the role of genetic testing in defining the therapeutic approach for sporadic men 1.

Abstract: the aim of this study was to evaluate the acrylic-pin external fixator, type ii-configuration, and cancellous bone autograft for treating complications of radius and ulna fractures in 10 dogs weighing between 1.8 and 33.6 kg. nonunion (n=4), osteomyelitis (n=1), malunion (n=1), failure or breakage of implant (n=4) were detected, and 60 % of them were associated with previous intramedullary pin placement in the radius. the fixator frame was constructed using most of the smooth transfixation pins angled. the fixation rods were constructed by placing acrylic resin over the ends of the transfixation pins that were previously bent. in all cases fresh cancellous bone autograft was used after cleaning of the fracture site. the permanence time of the external fixator ranged from 45 days to 5 months, and the most important complication was pin loosening. fracture healing was by minimal to moderate periosteal callus, suggesting good rigidity of the frame configuration.

Abstract: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the main cause of blindness in individuals aged 20-64 years, and accounts for 7.5% of the causes of adult work disability in Brazil. The risk of blindness is approximately 30-fold higher in people with diabetes mellitus (DM), compared to the population in general [1,2].The most important risk factors for the development and progression of DR are chronic hyperglycemia, duration of the DM and systemic blood pressure levels [3-9]. Other possible risk factors are dyslipidemia, pregnancy, puberty and local ocular factors such as prior cataract surgery (facectomy) [10].So far the most solid evidence for the risk of developing DR is chronic hyperglycemia [10-13]. After 20 years duration, there is some degree of DR in almost all patients with type 1 DM, 20% of them severe [14]. In insulin users with type 2 DM, the presence of DR occurs in approximately 84.5% of patients after 15 years of the disease [15].However, there is great variability in the incidence of DR among patients with DM, and therefore it must be asked why some patients with poor metabolic control remain free of this complication.We present the case of a 73-year old woman who has had type 1 DM for 69 years, without any evidence of DR, despite inadequate glycemic control and several other risk factors for DR.White woman, 73 yrs old, nulliparous, type 1 DM diagnosed at age of 4 yrs, hypertension and dyslipidemia since the age of 44, and diagnosis of hypothyroidism since the age of 40. She smoked 20 cigarettes/day for 37 years. She has used insulin since diagnosis, currently associated with captopril 100 mg/day, simvastatin 40 mg/day, acetylsalicylic acid 200 mg/day and levotiroxine 75 μg/day, and has been regularly followed at the Endocrine Service and Ophthalmology Service at Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre for the last 20 years. Since then, she has maintained inadequate glycemic control with recent mean HbA1c of 9.5% (reference values: 4 - 6.0%). During the follow up period th

Abstract: pusher, or lateropulsion, syndrome is a clinical disorder following brain damage in which patients actively push away from the nonhemiparetic side, leading to a loss of postural balance. this study analysed the effect of hydrotherapy on trunk alignment in a 78 year-old male patient with the syndrome. pusher syndrome was diagnosed by means of the scale for contraversive pushing. trunk symmetry was assessed by photogrammetry: head, shoulder and trunk alignment angles were measured on photographs taken before and after treatment. aquatic therapy consisted in two weekly one-hour sessions for two months (total 16 sessions), using the bad ragaz and the halliwick techniques, with the purpose of strengthening upper limb and trunk muscles, respectively. the post-treatment assessment showed an important reduction in tilt angles of head (from 31.7o to 10.6o), shoulders (from 10.3o to 1.7o), and trunk alignment (from 9.6o to 3.0o). the hydrotherapy program proposed thus showed beneficial in assuring the patient with pusher syndrome better trunk symmetry and alignment.
