Pasinato, Fernanda;Souza, Juliana Alves;Corrêa, Eliane Castilhos Rodrigues;Silva, Ana Maria Toniolo da;
Brazilian Journal of Otorhinolaryngology , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1808-86942011000400003
Abstract: generalized joint hypermobility (gjh) has been considered a predisposing factor for the development of temporomandibular disorder (tmd). aim: to evaluate clinical and psychosocial aspects in individuals diagnosed with tmd with or without gjh. materials and methods: clinical and experimental study, which enrolled 34 women, from 18 to 35 years of age with tmd diagnosed by rdc/tmd. the gjh was assessed by the beighton score and volunteers were broken down into 2 groups: with gjh (n = 22) and without gjh (n = 12). results: we found a high percentage of gjh (64. 71%). all participants had myofascial pain; 79. 41% had arthralgia and 41% had disk displacement. there was a correlation between higher gjh scores and higher passive mouth opening amplitude (p=0. 0034), with pain (p=0. 0029) and without pain (p=0. 0081). greater mandibular range of motion was observed in the group with gjh, except for protrusion. painful mouth opening was statistically higher in the gjh group (p=0. 0279). conclusions: individuals with tmd associated or not to gjh do not differ significantly regarding clinical and psychosocial aspects, except in the mandibular opening range of motion, which if kept at physiological levels can lead to a late diagnosis of tmd in these individuals

Milanesi, Jovana de Moura;Weber, Priscila;Pasinato, Fernanda;Corrêa, Eliane Castilhos Rodrigues;
Fisioterapia em Movimento , 2013, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-51502013000100009
Abstract: introduction: it is known that there is a relationship between the temporomandibular disorder (tmd) and craniocervical posture, but, besides the studies showed inconclusive results, the severity of signs and symptoms of tmd is not considered. objective: to correlate the severity of tmd index to craniocervical cephalometric measurements. materials and methods: thirty-two women, from 19 to 35 years old with a diagnosis of tmd (rdc/tmd), took part in the study. the severity of signs and symptoms of tmd was assessed by the temoromandibular index proposed by pehling and calculated according to the physical examination findings of the rdc/tmd (axis i). the craniocervical posture was evaluated by cephalometry through 11 measures related to the head, cervical spine, jaw and the hyoid bone position. data normality was tested by lilliefors test and correlations were performed by spearman coefficient. results: moderate negative correlation was found between the cvt/hor angle and muscular (p = 0.0288) and temporomandibular (p = 0.0394) indices; between the cpl/hor angle (anterior) when correlated with functional (p = 0.0482) and muscle indices (p = 0.0086) and between distance from the hyoid to the third cervical vertebra (hy/c3) and functional index (p = 0.0155). conclusions: there was an association between greater severity of clinical symptoms of tmd and a more forward head posture, the lower cervical spine flexion and a smaller distance from hyoid bone to the third cervical vertebra. this relationship suggests that the craniocervical postural changes may contribute to a greater intensity of signs and symptoms and the perpetuation of tmd.

International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology , 2012,
Abstract: Introduction: Hyperplasia of the pharyngeal tonsil is one of the main causes of mouth breathing, and accurate diagnosis of this alteration is important for proper therapeutic planning. Therefore, studies have been conducted in order to provide information regarding the procedures that can be used for the diagnosis of pharyngeal obstruction. Objective: To verify the correlation between nasopharyngoscopy and cephalometric examinations in the diagnosis of pharyngeal tonsil hyperplasia. Method: This was a cross-sectional, clinical, experimental, and quantitative study. Fifty-five children took part in this study, 30 girls and 25 boys, aged between 7 and 11 years. The children underwent nasofibropharyngoscopic and cephalometric evaluation to determine the grade of nasopharyngeal obstruction. The Spearman's rank correlation coefficient at the 5% significance level was used to verify the correlation between these exams. Results: In the nasopharyngoscopy evaluation, most children showed grade 2 and 3 hyperplasia of the pharyngeal tonsil, which was followed by grade 1. In the cephalometry assessment, most children showed grade 1 hyperplasia of the pharyngeal tonsil, which was followed by grade 2. A statistically significant regular positive correlation was observed between the exams. Conclusion: It was concluded that the evaluation of the pharyngeal tonsil hyperplasia could be carried out by fiber optic nasopharyngoscopy and cephalometry, as these examinations were regularly correlated. However, it was found that cephalometry tended to underestimate the size of the pharyngeal tonsil relative to nasopharyngoscopy.

Abstract: Photogrammetry is a valuable tool for the diagnosis and measurement of postural changes, but the lack of standardization of anatomical references and angular measures impairs the comparison between studies and compromises the reliability of the results. The objective of this study was to evaluate the inter- and intraexaminer reliability of angular measures proposed by the SAPO posture assessment software (v. 0.68). Twenty-four subjects were photographed in the standing position according to the recommendations of the SAPO software. Three examiners (A, B and C) experienced in the use of the software analyzed the images and repeated the analysis after 7 days. Variance, intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), and t-test adopting a level of significance of 5% were applied. With respect to interexaminer reliability among the 20 angles measured, two were classified as unacceptable (A13: ICC = 0.623; A14: ICC = 0.568), one as acceptable (A19: ICC = 0.743), one as very good (A20: ICC = 0.860), and 16 as excellent (ICC ≥ 0.90). Evaluation of repeatability of the method by the same examiner showed that two angles measured by examiner A differed significantly between the two measurements (A11: p = 0.015; A12: p = 0.026), as did two angles measured by examiner B (A2: p = 0.019; A12: p = 0.015) and one angle measured by examiner C (A16, p = 0.011). In conclusion, comparison between different examiners showed that the angles proposed by the SAPO protocol are reliable for the measurement of body segments.
