Discordance for fetal anencephaly in a dichorionic twin pregnancy: A case report  [PDF]
Joana Batista, Laura Raposo, Ana Sousa, Isabel Cerveira
Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2013.37097

Anencephaly is a frequent and easily diagnosed condition affecting twin pregnancies with higher incidence than singletons. Discordance for anencephaly in twins raises management dilemmas about the best approach to the situation. The authors report a successful case of a 33 years old woman who had a dichorionic twin pregnancy resulting from ICSI, with discordance for anencephaly. Diagnosis was performed at 13 weeks during first trimester ultrasound screening. A selective feticide with intrathoracic injection of KCl at 13 + 2 weeks was performed with no complications. The normal fetus proceeded with an uneventful pregnancy with spontaneous vaginal delivery at 40 weeks, weighting 3110 g. Management of twin pregnancies discordant for fetal anencephaly is far from being consensual. Two options are considered: selective feticide or expectant management, with serial ultrasound surveillance. In the latter option, amniodrainage or selective feticide may become options if polyhydramnios develops later in pregnancy. Therapeutic strategy requires an individual approach considering chorionicity, gestational age and all the risks of miscarriage, preterm labor and fetal demise to which these pregnancies are particularly exposed.

Introduction: Studies on attitudes and practices are increasingly used but not specifically related to the motivations for the use of reproductive health care among women of fertile age, living in urban areas and in different social contexts. Objectives: The aim of this study was to estimate the associations between the variables of social status (degree of poverty in the studied groups) and the variables of fecundity (representations, tensions, practices and control of fertility) and, in addition, to compare access to health care in the different studied groups, assessing the association between use of maternal health care and poverty in urban areas. Design: A case-control study was conducted in the Municipality of Lisbon, Portugal, with a total sample of 1513 women of fertile age: 499 cases of women considered very poor were selected from the database of beneficiaries of RSI (Social Welfare Payment for Inclusion); 1014 controls (two controls for each selected case), divided as 507 poor women selected from the other beneficiaries of Santa Casa da Misericórdia in Lisbon and 507 non-poor women selected from four Health Centers from the Municipality of Lisbon, Portugal. A total of 1054 women answered the questionnaire: 304 cases (response rate of 61%) and 750 (response rate of 74%) controls. The statistical analysis involved descriptive analysis and multinomial logistic regression. Results: The analysis confirms the association between poverty and patterns and representations of fecun

dity regarding pregnancy planning. The results of this study thus show the existence of different distributions on several variables and the gradients of poverty. Regarding access to health care, the major impact of poverty on women

Abstract: this study is a review of published research findings on the oral effects of occupational exposure to acid mists. a literature search was conducted on medline, lilacs, scielo, bbo, and dedalus, identifying eight articles and a doctoral dissertation focusing on this association. findings were consistent with a positive association between occupational exposure to acid mists and dental erosion, according to the literature published since 1919. studies on the association between acid mist exposure in the workplace and periodontal disease, or oral mucous lesions, were more recent and scarce, and their findings remain controversial. several methodological drawbacks were observed, such as small sampling size and poorly developed analysis, as exemplified by little or no attention to confounding variables. these findings support the relevance of this research area and the need for improved research design. they also highlight the importance of considering oral health as a component of workers' health in effective preventive programs.

Abstract: To further the purposes of this international seminar ”Conservazione del Património Arquitectónico e Urbano”, where the experiences in Italy and Portugal in the ambit of the conservation of urban and architectural heritage will be compared, two case studies are presented, showing the preservation of historical centers performedin two Portuguese cities – Tomar City (Historical Centre) and Lisbon (Monumental Area of Ajuda-Belém). The two plans, one performed in 1996 – Historical Centre of Tomar - and the other in 2004 - Monumental Area of Ajuda-Belém in Lisbon – both using computerized systems, document in the passing of 8 years, the importance of the advance in technology and informatics, reflected in the most recent project (Monumental Area of Ajuda-Belém) not only in the acquisition and data processing, but also in their consultation, processes that have shown to be invaluable for the conservation and protection of the architectural heritage and urban environment of this area of Lisbon. Prosseguindo os propósitos deste Il Seminário internacional “Conservazione del Património Arquitectónico e Urbano”, onde ir o ser confrontadas as experiências realizadas em Itália e Portugal no ambito da conserva o do património arquitectónico e urbano, s o apresentados dois casos de estudo, objectivando a salvaguarda dos centros históricos, realizados em duas cidades portuguesas - Tomar (Centro Histórico) e Lisboa (Zona Monumental Ajuda-Belém).

Psico , 2012,
Abstract: Este artigo se prop e a analisar as interven es públicas nas formas de habitar e seus efeitos na subjetividade, por meio do estudo de diferentes elementos que v o desde a antecipa o do projeto até as propostas efetivas, procurando pensar em alternativas que ampliem a autonomia e mantenham presentes a esfera do desejo nos sujeitos envolvidos. Como alternativa, propomos o trabalho através das utopias iconoclastas capazes de mostrar os limites de nosso pensamento e a possibilidade de vir-a-ser, alcan ando, assim, um respeito mútuo inclusivo. This article aims to analyze government intervention in the forms of living and its effects on subjectivity, through the study of different elements, ranging from anticipation of the project until effective proposals, looking for alternatives that enhance the autonomy and keep the desire present in the involved subjects. Alternatively, we propose working through the iconoclastic utopianism, which is able to show the limits of our thinking and potencial outcomes, thereby achieving an inclusive mutual respect.
Le monde du travail chez Jean-Luc Outers : Le travailleur belge : un tatou !
Isabel Verónica Ferraz De Sousa
Intercambio , 2012,
Abstract: In the novels by Belgian Francophone Jean-Luc Outers, working world has found a productive ground. Indeed, there are plenty professions from politician to researcher, including public administration clerk. Though writer’s work is emphasized, Outers’ novels focus on the absurd administration context, as well as the relation between work and body, space and time. It is with an ironic and tender glance, in an interrogative style which leads to reflection, with poetry, often surreal or fantastic images, but above all with a special humour, comfortable, but mainly with absurd or burlesque, sometimes incisive approach, which causes intelligent laughter, that the author presents us this abstract and asepticised bureaucratic society of ours, where human beings try to survive despite nonsense.

Abstract: Neste estudo de revis o, sistematizam-se os achados de pesquisas sobre os efeitos das exposi es ocupacionais a névoas ácidas na saúde bucal. Utilizaram-se como bases de dados MEDLINE, LILACS, SciELO, BBO e DEDALUS, das quais foram selecionados oito artigos e uma tese de doutorado, que focalizavam as associa es de interesse. Os achados s o consistentes em torno de uma associa o positiva entre exposi o a névoas ácidas e eros o dental, confirmando os dados de pesquisas conduzidas desde 1919. Estudos sobre a associa o entre névoas ácidas e a doen a periodontal ou les es da mucosa oral s o mais recentes e raros, e os achados, controversos. Muitos estudos apresentam limites metodológicos, especialmente tamanho insuficiente da popula o de estudo, e análise apenas descritiva, ou sem a considera o de variáveis de confus o. A importancia deste tema revela-se no grande número de trabalhadores potencialmente expostos e na necessidade da incorpora o de aspectos da saúde bucal no campo da saúde do trabalhador, a fim de que programas de preven o efetivos possam ser implementados.
