Treatment of retroauricular keloids: Revision of cases treated at the ENT service of HC/UFPR
Carvalho, Bettina,Ballin, Annelyse Cristine,Becker, Renata Vecentin,Ribeiro, Talita Beithum
International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology , 2012,
Abstract: Introduction: Keloids are benign tumors arising from abnormal healing of the skin, and there are several procedures available for their treatment. Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of patients undergoing treatment of keloids after ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgeries at our service center. Method: We conducted thorough, retrospective and prospective analysis of records of patients undergoing treatment of retroauricular keloids at our center. Results: Nine patients were evaluated, and 6 underwent resection and adjuvant beta-therapy, 2 underwent resection with local application of corticosteroids, and only 1 underwent resection without adjuvant therapy. There was no recurrence of keloids in patients that were treated with beta-therapy in the early postoperative period. One patient had relapsed despite corticosteroid administration and late beta-therapy. Discussion: Several techniques have been used for the treatment of retroauricular keloids, and beta-therapy is thought to yield the best results, followed by the use of intralesional corticosteroids. Conclusion: Treatment of retroauricular keloids remains a challenge. While new techniques are being developed, resection followed by early beta-therapy is still the best treatment option.

Discursos que produzem sentidos sobre o ensino de ciências nos anos iniciais de escolaridade
Pereira, Talita Vidal;
Educa??o em Revista , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-46982011000200008
Abstract: in this article i analyze the hegemonic discourse articulated by the disciplinary communities that research the science teaching, with the goal of identifying the meanings that are being produced in the initial years of elementary school. i take as reference the productions of the two first and the two last "encontros nacionais de pesquisa em educa??o em ciências" (enpec), that presented reflections directed towards this school level, in an effort to understand the constitution of the process of a speech that intends to establish what is and what should be science teaching in the elementary levels of school, and also to establish which the formative needs are so that teaching can be exerted in that direction. using laclau and mouffe's (2004) theory of discourse, which enables me to perceive it as a hybrid discourse that pervades the different curricular contexts of production.
Habitat utilization and CAM occurrence among epiphytic bromeliads in a dry forest from southeastern Brazil
Fontoura, Talita;Reinert, Fernanda;
Brazilian Journal of Botany , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-84042009000300011
Abstract: we studied the community and habitat occupation of epiphytes to understand how these plants cope with a supposedly stressful habitat: i) how general epiphytes occupy tree trunks, ii) how epiphytic bromeliads, occupy their supportive trees, iii) how cam bromeliads are spatially distributed. the study was done in the dry forest of jacarepiá, state of rio de janeiro. data collection on epiphytes, phorophytes, and trees was based on the point-center quarter method. the photosynthetic pathway of the bromeliad species was determined using isotope ratio mass spectrometry. the presence of gesneriaceae, araceae, and cactaceae indicates that some humidity is present in the area allowing the presence of supposedly less-specialized epiphytes. there was no correlation between epiphyte abundance and phorophyte diameter, and phorophytes had larger sizes than trees that do not host epiphytes. there was correlation between tree diameter and bromeliad abundance, and lack of correlation between diameter and bromeliad richness. only one species was typical of the understorey and one was typical of the canopy, while intermediate heights were occupied by different species. the only c3 bromeliad species (vriesea procera (mart. ex schult.f.) wittm.) was significantly more exposed than the other species. if cam occurrence is related to water economy, the fact that a c3 species is subjected to more exposed conditions is remarkable. further comments are presented on the proportion between cam bromeliad species and abundance in dry forest. regarding life forms, holoepiphytes, as opposed to hemiepiphytes, showed not to be restricted by the phorophyte's diameter suggesting a more successful establishment of this life form.

Conceptual metaphor and comprehension in business writing
Talita C Smit
Per Linguam : A Journal of Language Learning , 2011, DOI: 10.5785/26-2-19
Abstract: Recent research studies in cognitive linguistics (Gibbs, 1999; K vecses, 2005; Lakoff, 1987; Lakoff & Johnson, 1980; Lakoff & Johnson, 1999) have demonstrated that metaphor is not merely a figure of speech. The findings of these studies have shown that metaphor influences a good deal of how people think as it comprises a specific mental, cross-domain mapping in the conceptual system (Balaban, 1999; Ibarretxe-Antuňanu, 1999; Lakoff, 2006; Lakoff & Johnson, 1980). This article looks at whether employing different conceptual metaphors in different versions of the same business report will have an effect on reader comprehension. A small-scale research study was conducted with a group of second-year university students, in which they were given one of two texts concerning the recovery of the economy. Both texts were adapted from a newspaper report and seeded with metaphors and metaphoric expressions. The multiple-choice questions that followed aimed to determine to what extent the readers’ comprehension and interpretation of the report were influenced by the different conceptual metaphors used. The findings indicate that language that served to introduce the sources or targets directly into the content did not necessarily have an effect on the processing of subsequent metaphors involving these concepts; however, it appeared that the surface patterns of metaphorical discourse did affect the inferences drawn about the different conceptual metaphors. It can thus be concluded that a specific metaphoric framework in written discourse does influence the interpretation of the content.

AS CONTRIBUI ES DO PARADIGMA PóS-ESTRUTURALISTA PARA ANALISAR AS POLíTICAS CURRICULARES
Talita Vidal Pereira
Revista Espa?o do Currículo , 2010,
Abstract: Neste trabalho procuro identificar o cientificismo como marca constituinte do discurso educacional, que favorece e sustenta o processo de naturaliza o dos conteúdos de ensino. Argumento que esta naturaliza o constituí e expressa uma dada hegemonia que privilegia um determinado modelo cultural em detrimento de outros possíveis. O trabalho se estrutura em três momentos. No primeiro procuro caracterizar, em linhas gerais, o pós-estruturalismo como modo de pensamento que questiona aspectos centrais do Humanismo e do Renascimento, que se expressam no projeto de modernidade. Depois busco identificar o processo de escolariza o, que se desenvolve a partir do século XIX, e se consolida no século XX, como um processo a servi o da propaga o do projeto cultural moderno homogeneizador. Neste exercício reflexivo lan o m o da análise dos relatos colhidos durante as entrevistas que realizei com professoras da rede municipal de ensino da cidade do Rio de Janeiro no período em que acontecia a implementa o da proposta curricular da rede, a Multieduca o (1996). Destes relatos emergiram as quest es que motivam minhas reflex es no doutorado, e que têm encontrado no paradigma pós-estruturalista um referencial produtivo para análise.

Abstract: Oxidative stress is considered a central factor in endothelial dysfunction and plaque formation in coronary heart disease (CHD) patients. In this cross-sectional study, the stress-induced protein and lipid oxidation and production of signaling molecule, nitric oxide has been investigated in CHD patients in Bangladesh. A total of 140 participants were enrolled of which 70 were CHD patients, and the remaining 70 were control subjects having no cardiovascular disease. The diagnosis of CHD was made by expert physicians through characteristic electrocardiogram and troponin changes. The protein carbonyls and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) levels in plasma of both groups were measured by spectrophotometric methods. The plasma nitric oxide levels were measured by reaction with Griess reagent. Statistical non-parametric tests and t-tests were used to analyze the results between the CHD patients and controls. In the patients, the mean protein carbonyls and TBARS, two important markers of oxidative stress, were 2.87 ± 0.97 nmol/mg and 6.92 ± 3.56 nmol/mL, respectively, which were significantly higher than in the control subjects, 1.71 ± 0.82 nmol/mg and 3.15 ± 1.42 nmol/mL, respectively. Assessment of the cardiovascular signaling molecule nitric oxide showed significantly lower value in the CHD patients (6.29 ± 4.78 μM) compared to the controls (10.75 ± 6.03 μM). There was a significant negative correlation between plasma TBARS and total plasma protein, and a weak negative correlation between TBARS and nitric oxide levels in the CHD patients. Evaluation of the smoking habit strongly suggested that smoking was a risk factor for the development of CHD among the Bangladeshi population. These results provide an overview of oxidative?stress-mediated damages on proteins, lipids and effects on signaling molecule nitric oxide in CHD patients.
