Compara??o entre a telelaringoscopia e a laringoscopia de suspens?o no diagnóstico das les?es benignas das pregas vocais
Mendes Neto, José Arruda;Pinna, Bruno Resende;Caporrino Neto, José;Pedroso, José Eduardo de Sá;
Revista Brasileira de Otorrinolaringologia , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-72992008000600009
Abstract: proper diagnosis of laryngeal benign lesions still brings doubts among experienced laryngologists, despite current diagnostic progress. aim: the goal of this study was to compare telelaryngoscopy (preoperative) with suspension laryngoscopy (intraoperative) on the diagnosis of vocal fold benign lesions. materials and methods: we carried out a restrospective study analyzing 79 charts from patients followed up in a university hospital. in all the charts there was at least diagnostic hypothesis suggested by telelaryngoscopy, which was later on compared to intraoperative findings of suspension laryngoscopy. results: almost two-thirds of the patients were females, with ages varying between 12 and 66 years (mean of 37 years). of the 79 patients studied, we diagnosed 95 lesions with telelaryngoscopy and 124 with suspension laryngoscopy. the most frequently found benign lesion was the vocal polyp in both methods. in 64.5% of the cases the diagnosis of the lesions in the outpatient ward was the same as those in the surgical findings. conclusion: laryngologists must be prepared to alter their surgical planning and treatment approaches because of diagnostic changes that may happen during surgery.
Laryngeal Leishmaniasis
Moraes, Bruno Teixeira de,Amorim Filho, Francisco de Souza,Caporrino Neto, José,Saraceni Neto, Paulo
International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology , 2012,
Abstract: Introduction: Leishmaniasis is classified into three clinical presentations: visceral, coetaneous and mucocutaneous. The latter is usually secondary to hematogenous spread after months or years of skin infection and can manifest as infiltrative lesions, ulcerated or vegetating in nose, pharynx, larynx and mouth, associated or not with ganglionics infarction. Laryngeal involvement is part of the differential diagnosis of lesions in this topography as nonspecific chronic laryngitis, granulomatosis and even tumors of the upper aerodigestive tract presenting atypical evolution. Sometimes it is difficult for the correct diagnosis of Leishmaniasis, with description of cases in the literature were conducted improperly. Objective: The objective of this study is to report a case of laryngeal Leishmaniasis addressing the difficulty of diagnosis, complications and treatment applied. Case Report: A patient with pain throat, dysphagia, odynophagia, dysphonia and weight loss, with no improvement with symptomatic medication. At telelaringoscopy, infiltrative lesion showed nodular supraglottis. He underwent a tracheotomy for airway obstruction and biopsy with immunohistochemical study for a definitive diagnosis of laryngeal Leishmaniasis. The patient was referred to the infectious diseases that initiated treatment with N-methylglucamine antimoniate with satisfactory response to therapy. Final Comments: Faced with a clinical suspicion of granulomatous diseases, it is essential to follow protocol laboratory evaluation associated with histological injury, to get a precise definition etiological without prolonging the time of diagnosis. Medical treatment for mucosal Leishmaniasis, recommended by the World Health Organization, was adequate in the case of laryngeal disorders, with complete resolution of symptoms.

Pontes, Paulo;Brasil, Osíris de Oliveira Camponês do;Amorim Filho, Francisco de Souza;Moraes, Bruno Teixeira de;Pontes, Antonio;Caporrino Neto, José;
Brazilian Journal of Otorhinolaryngology , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1808-86942011000300005
Abstract: early glottic cancer can be effectively treated with radiation or surgery, but recurrence is a possibility when using any of the treatment modalities. aim: to assess the outcome of radiotherapy as initial treatment in the control of squamous cell carcinoma of vocal cord (t1) and the effectiveness of salvage surgery (endoscopic or open) after treatment failure. materials and methods: a retrospective study was based on the analysis of medical records from 43 patients with t1 squamous cell carcinoma of the glottis, radiotherapy as initial treatment and follow-up period of five years. results: the rate of recurrence after radiotherapy was 30.2% of the cases, mean diagnosis interval was 29.5 months. as an option for salvage treatment, patients underwent open partial laryngectomy or endoscopic surgery with control rates of 77.7% and 25% respectively. conclusion: our cases showed high rates of recurrence after radiotherapy and open partial laryngectomy was more effective for the salvage surgery.

Abstract: Thirty-one SVMP cDNAs were full length cloned from a single specimen of Bothrops neuwiedi snake, sequenced and grouped in eleven distinct sequences and further analyzed by cladistic analysis. Class P-I and class P-III sequences presented the expected tree topology for fibrinolytic and hemorrhagic SVMPs, respectively. In opposition, three distinct segregations were observed for class P-II sequences. P-IIb showed the typical segregation of class P-II SVMPs. However, P-IIa grouped with class P-I cDNAs presenting a 100% identity in the 365 bp at their 5' ends, suggesting post-transcription events for interclass recombination. In addition, catalytic domain of P-IIx sequences segregated with non-hemorrhagic class P-III SVMPs while their disintegrin domain grouped with other class P-II disintegrin domains suggesting independent evolution of catalytic and disintegrin domains. Complementary regions within cDNA sequences were noted and may participate in recombination either at DNA or RNA levels. Proteins predicted by these cDNAs show the main features of the correspondent classes of SVMP, but P-IIb and P-IIx included two additional cysteines cysteines at the C-termini of the disintegrin domains in positions not yet described.In B. neuwiedi venom gland, class P-II SVMPs were represented by three different types of transcripts that may have arisen by interclass recombination with P-I and P-III sequences after the divergence of the different classes of SVMPs. Our observations indicate that exon shuffling or post-transcriptional mechanisms may be driving these recombinations generating new functional possibilities for this complex group of snake toxins.In some reptiles and other animals, protein recruiting to specialized glands and their diversification throughout evolution resulted in venoms, which represent a key evolutionary innovation used by these animals for defense, competitor deterrence or predation [1]. When inoculated into a prey/predator, these proteins target importa
Bird-spiders (Arachnida, Mygalomorphae) as perceived by the inhabitants of the village of Pedra Branca, Bahia State, Brazil

Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1746-4269-2-50
Abstract: Bird-spiders belong to the Mygalomorphae suborder, Orthognatha group. Differently from the spiders of the Araneomorphae suborder, in this group of spiders the chelicerae move in parallel with the longitudinal axis of the body, there are two pairs of lungs, and their venom glands are situated entirely inside the basal segment of the chelicerae [1]. There are nearly 2.547 known species and they are found in all continents, except Antarctica (Paulo César Motta, personal communication, 2006). Considering the family Theraphosidae, a total of 897 and 170 species have already been described in the world and in Brazil, respectively [2]. They grow up through skin changes, and females still go through these changes even after they are adults [3]. Theraphosa blondi (Latreille, 1804), which lives in the Amazon forest, is up to 26 cm long [4].These spiders usually dig burrows when they are spiderlings and live in them for many years, enlarging them as necessary. Once established at a site, an individual tarantula usually spends its life there, hunting in an area only a few meters adjacent to its burrow [5]. According to Smith [5], courtship involves cautious approach by the male, who touches the female with his front legs, then moves in a way that identifies both his gender and species. If the female is receptive to his tentative advances, she abandons her burrow and ultimately postures with her cephalothorax raised. She remains inactive while the male approaches her from the front. He uses special hooks on the first pair of his walking legs to hold the female's fang-bearing chelicerae during insemination. After the sperm have been deposited in the female's abdominal genital opening, the male disengages his hooks and departs briskly.Erroneously, mygalomorphs are referred to as tarantulas by many people, but the true tarantulas are araneomorph spiders of the widespread genus Lycosa [6]. The name 'tarantula' comes from a cult in Taranto, Southern Italy where the bite of a spider (

Abstract: this is an analysis of services rendered at caldas da rainha hospital center pediatric psychology practice and its interaction with other services and institutes. the majority of referrals to the practice are for behavioral problems (39.3%) as opposed to developmental problems. additionally the treatment and diagnosis of behavioral problems is highly anticipated by referrals (26%). evaluation is most common (43.1%), and as such naturally correlates to the increase in demand on the practice. upon analysis of the diagnostic areas, we find ?psychosocial and environmental problems? (16.7%), ?non-pathological behavioral disorders? (15.5%), and ?relational problems? (13.7%) addressing essentially relational and environmental areas. parental/fa-mily guidance being necessary by a high incidence of ?relational problems?. ?difficulties in school? being a secondary motive for referral (17.3%), seeking collaboration from teaching/school personnel is also necessary. a case work analysis of this practice confirms the necessity in pediatric psychology of transdisciplinary intervention must be, above all, adaptable to concrete hospital and institutional contexts and expectations.
Dos objetivos da linguística de texto à articula o textual: a busca pela coerência do texto e do ensino de língua materna Dos objetivos da linguística de texto à articula o textual: a busca pela coerência do texto e do ensino de língua materna

Abstract: This paper aims to reflect on the goals of linguistic text, in general, to the field of language teaching, by analyzing the sequential elements of cohesion and its influence on the progression of the text, focusing on the study some argumentative operators and relations of meaning established by not using these connectors. All this, of course, tied to a teaching perspective that many theorists speak, which many teachers, thanks to the influence of applied linguistics, follow. The research also proposes a rethinking of the teaching of language and emphasizes the concept of cohesion and coherence beyond the surface structure, prioritizing what “behind” is any act of communication, here restricted to the verbal. For this, this work is based on the studies of authors such as Beaugrande& Dressler (1981) and Koch (2007), among others that will be cited during the text. For analysis, we selected the text entitled “Felicidade”, by Fernando Bastos de ávila, and a newspaper matter published in “Folha de S o Paulo”. The results led us to conclude that the connectors carry some social, historic and cultural factors which are decisive to the meaning of the text. We also concluded that the no use of these connectors can lead to the meaning construction. It will depend on the extralinguistic factors. O presente trabalho objetiva fazer uma reflex o acerca dos objetivos da linguística de texto, de uma maneira geral, para o campo de ensino de língua materna, procurando analisar os elementos de coes o sequencial e sua influência na progress o do texto, a partir do estudo de alguns operadores argumentativos e das rela es de sentido estabelecidas pelo n o uso desses articuladores, em textos escritos. Tudo isso atrelado a uma perspectiva de ensino de que muitos teóricos falam, a qual muitos professores seguem: o funcionalismo. A pesquisa também prop e um repensar sobre o ensino de língua materna e enfatiza o conceito de coes o e coerência muito além da estrutura superficial, priorizando o que “por trás” está de qualquer ato de comunica o-aqui restrito ao verbal. Para isso, respaldamo-nos nos estudos de autores como Beaugrande & Dressler (1981)e Koch (2007), entre outros que ser o citados no decorrer do texto. Para análise, escolhemos o texto Felicidade, de Fernando Bastos de ávila, e uma notícia de jornal publicada na Folha de S. Paulo. O resultado permitiu-nos concluir que os articuladores carregam fatores culturais, históricos e sociais, que s o decisivos na constru o do(s) sentido(s) do texto. Também concluímos que o n o uso desses articuladores pode estabelecer sentid
Off-line Programming and Simulation from CAD Drawings: Robot-Assisted Sheet Metal Bending
Pedro Neto
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Increasingly, industrial robots are being used in production systems. This is because they are highly flexible machines and economically competitive with human labor. The problem is that they are difficult to program. Thus, manufacturing system designers are looking for more intuitive ways to program robots, especially using the CAD drawings of the production system they developed. This paper presents an industrial application of a novel CAD-based off-line robot programming (OLP) and simulation system in which the CAD package used for cell design is also used for OLP and robot simulation. Thus, OLP becomes more accessible to anyone with basic knowledge of CAD and robotics. The system was tested in a robot-assisted sheet metal bending cell. Experiments allowed identifying the pros and cons of the proposed solution.
Satisfaction with Life among Adolescents from Returned Portuguese Immigrant Families
Félix Neto,Joana Neto
Journal of Social Research & Policy , 2011,
Abstract: : A central construct within the positive psychology literature is satisfaction with life. The aim of this study was to determine the level of satisfaction with life among adolescents from returned immigrant families in Portugal, as well as the background, the intercultural contact and the adaptation factors related thereto. The sample consisted of 615 adolescents (mean age = 16.5 years; SD = 1.4). The mean duration of sojourn in Portugal for the sample was 8.4 (SD = 4.6). They answered a self-report questionnaire. A comparison group involving 217 young Portuguese was also included in the study. Adolescents from returned immigrant families revealed similar levels of satisfaction with life in comparison with peers who have never migrated. The notion that geographic mobility of parents is a primary cause of adaptation problems in their children appears to be incorrect. Predictive factors – demographic, intercultural, and adaptation variables – were significantly linked to the satisfaction with life of youth. Combined, these variables explained 37% of the variance in life satisfaction. The results help us understand which variables are important to target when developing interventions to improve the life satisfaction of adolescents from returned immigrant families.
