Pinto, José Ant?nio,S?nego, Thiago Branco,Artico, Marina Spadari,Leal, Carolina de Farias Aires
International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology , 2012,
Abstract: Introduction: The extramedullary plasmocytoma is one of the localized forms of malignancy of the plasma cells, which has multiple myeloma main diagnosis. Its main site to the head and neck, but with a rare presentation in the larynx. Objective: To describe a case of extramedullary plasmocytoma of the larynx, with literature review. Case Report: Patient female, 49, referring to intermittent dysphonia for 01 years with progressive worsening associated with vocal fatigue and vocal effort, with reddish lesion, smooth edges fold left ventricular endoscopy. Being subjected to excisional biopsy diagnosed with extramedullary histopathological plasmocytoma. Conclusion: Extramedullary Plasmocytoma must be considered in the differential diagnosis of rare tumors of the larynx. It is essential after the diagnosis of multiple myeloma research and a "follow up" appropriate.

Abstract:

The search for therapeutic agents that will provide the ground for man and an improvement in their quality of life is ceaseless. The nerol (cis-2,6-dimethyl-2,6-octadien-8-ol) is a monoterpene which can be found in various medicinal plants as Lippia spp and Melissa officinalis L. The objective of this study was to analyze the acute effect of nerol in the central nervous system (CNS) by performing behavioral tests in mice (open field, elevated plus-maze, light/dark and rota rod tests). We used male albino mice (Mus musculus), Swiss variety, adult with 2 month-old. The animals were divided into five groups (n = 8) for each experimental protocol, and they were administered intraperitoneally (i.p.), respectively, Tween 80 0.05% dissolved in saline solution 0.9%, nerol (30, 60 or 90 mg/kg) or diazepam (2 mg/kg). In the open field test, all groups treated with nerol showed a significant decrease in motor activity (number of crossings, rearings and groomings) when compared with vehicle group. In the elevated plus-maze test, nerol groups significantly increased the number of entries and time of permanence in the open arms when compared with vehicle group. In the light-dark test, nerol groups showed a significant increase the time of permanence in the room clear when compared with vehicle group. In the rota rod test, the groups treated with nerol didn’t show modification in time spent and number of falls in the revolving bar when compared with vehicle group. These results indicate a possible anxiolytic effect of nerol in mice.

Marques, Cláudia Diniz Lopes;Dantas, Andréa Tavares;Fragoso, Thiago Sotero;Duarte, ?ngela Luzia Branco Pinto;
Revista Brasileira de Reumatologia , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0482-50042010000100007
Abstract: in addition to its role in calcium homeostasis, it is believed that the active form of vitamin d has immunomodulatory effects on cells of the immune system, particularly t lymphocytes, as well as on the production and action of several cytokines. the interaction of vitamin d with the immune system has been the target of a growing number of publications in recent years. current studies have linked the deficiency of vitamin d with different autoimmune diseases, including insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (iddm), multiple sclerosis (ms), inflammatory bowel disease (ibd), systemic lupus erythematosus (sle), and rheumatoid arthritis (ra). this article reviews the physiology and immunomodulatory role of vitamin d, emphasizing its involvement in rheumatic diseases such as sle and ra.
Severe complication of posterior nasal packing: Case Report
Pinto, José Ant?nio,Cintra, Pedro Paulo Vivacqua da Cunha,S?nego, Thiago Branco,Leal, Carolina de Farias Aires
International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology , 2012,
Abstract: Introduction: Severe Epistaxis is common in patients with head trauma, especially when associated with multiple fractures of the face and skull base. Several methods of controlling bleeding that can be imposed. The anterior nasal tapenade associated with posterior Foley catheter is one of the most widespread, and the universal availability of necessary materials or their apparent ease of execution. Methods: Case report on control of severe epistaxis after severe TBI, with posterior nasal packing by Foley catheter and control tomography showing multiple fractures of the skull base and penetration of the probe into the brain parenchyma. Conclusion: This is a rare but possible complication in the treatment of severe nose bleeds associated with fracture of the skull base. This brief report highlights risks related to the method and suggests some care to prevent complications related through a brief literature review.

Pinto, José Antonio;Godoy, Luciana Ballester de Mello;Marquis, Valéria Wanderley Pinto Brand?o;Sonego, Thiago Branco;Leal, Carolina de Farias Aires;
Brazilian Journal of Otorhinolaryngology , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1808-86942011000500010
Abstract: vocal fold immobility may be due to bilateral neurogenic paralysis, cricoarytenoid joint fixation, laryngeal synechiae, or posterior glottic stenosis. treatment aims to establish a patent airway and preserve the function of the glottic sphincter and voice quality. objetives: to analyze the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in cases of bilateral vocal fold immobility seen at our unit. materials and methods: a retrospective study of 35 patient registries at our unit with a diagnosis of bilateral vocal fold immobility; the etiology and treatment results were evaluated. results: among the patients, 18 (51.4%) were cases of bilateral vocal fold palsy, and 17 (48,6%) were cases of posterior glottic stenosis. patients with bilateral palsy underwent unilateral subtotal arytenoidectomy, and patients with stenosis were treated with the microtrapdoor flap technique, subtotal arytenoidectomy, and/or posterior cricoidotomy (rethi). conclusion: bilateral vocal fold immobility is a potentially fatal condition; it is essential to differentiate vocal fold palsy from fixation to choose the appropriate treatment. subtotal arytenoidectomy with microscopy is our surgery of choice for treating bilateral paralysis; the technique for treating stenosis depends on the amount of stenosis.
