Martini, Rodrigo Klafke;Fonseca, Gisele Finkler da;Martini, Rafael Klafke;Azeredo Filho, Mauro;Serafini, Osvaldo André;
Acta Ortopédica Brasileira , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-78522002000200004
Abstract: the authors made a retrospective review of children with supracondylar fracture of the humerus with the purpose of analyzing these fractures characteristics and comparing them with the literature. the registers from patients attended at the trauma and orthopedics service, s?o lucas hospital, pucrs, containing the data necessary for the survey (age, race, affected side, fracture classification, complications and treatment) were reviewed. sixty-three 1 to 11 year-old patients were studied. extension and flexion lesions occurred in 78.5% and 10.5% of the cases, respectively. most of the cases were observed in males (63.4%) and whites (95.2%). lesions at the left side (55.6%) were more frequent. surgical treatment was carried out in 76% of the cases and conservative treatment in 24%. as concerns the gartland classification, 8% were type i, 17,4% type ii, and 74,6% type iii. nerve complications were observed in 6.35% of the cases, and vascular complications in 3.2%. the results of the survey are consistent with the literature outlining the importance of this pathology in children and the need of acknowledging the characteristics, the classification, and the management of this pathology.

Granato, Lídio;Próspero, José Donato;Martini Filho, Dino;
International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology , 2013, DOI: 10.7162/S1809-97772013000100016
Abstract: introduction: paragangliomas are neuroendocrine tumors that most commonly originate in the adrenal gland, a type that is called pheochromocytoma; however, 5-10% of paragangliomas are extra-adrenal and may arise in any area between the neck and pelvic region along the sympathetic nervous system. those located in the head and neck comprise 3% of extra-adrenal tumors, with the majority originating in the tympanic-jugular region and carotid body. objective: to present a rare case of nasal paraganglioma and review the literature. case report: the patient was submitted to medial subtotal maxillectomy, and her clinical findings, diagnostic data, and treatment outcome were recorded. conclusion: paragangliomas are considered benign tumors, but they occasionally display a malignant character. the most important finding in this case was the need for total resection of the tumor to avoid recurrence.

Gratitude, or the Positive Side of the Relationship with Patients. Development and First Validation of New Instruments: A Scale of Gratitude Perceived by Operators and a Scale of Support Offered by the Gratitude Expressed by Their Patients  [PDF]
Mara Martini, Daniela Converso
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.56067
Abstract:

The relationship with patients/users is a crucial dimension for helping professionals. It is nevertheless mostly analyzed in its negative connotation, that’s to say as a possible cause, for example, of the burnout syndrome, while very few are research works that take into account the positive side of the relationship, as a resource more than a problem, and even fewer are the instruments to measure it. The aim of the present work is the development and the analysis of the characteristics of a scale to measure the gratitude expressed by patients perceived by operators and of a scale to measure the perception of support that gratitude by patients/customers offers to relieve the fatigue of daily commitment and return significance to their work. The two scales were developed and then integrated into a questionnaire including items regarding the negative side of the relationship (exceeding requests from patients) and the Customer-initiated support scale (Zimmermann et al., 2011). The questionnaire was filled in by 267 nurses in Piedmont, Italy. Descriptive analyses on each item, exploratory factor analysis, Cronbach’s alpha, analysis of variance, and bivariate correlations were conducted. Both scales show a one-factor solution. The independent sample t-tests highlighted differences between men and women and between people who have families to care for and people who do not. Bivariate correlations signalled a positive relationship between both the gratitude scales and the Customer-initiated support; no relationships are evident with the scale of exceeding request from patients. A limitation of the work is the dimension of the sample: a more extensive administration of the questionnaire is currently in progress that will also permit to more deeply investigate the factorial structure of the scales. The scales will allow filling a gap in measuring a central work issue for helping professions.

Storck, Lindolfo;Lopes, Sidinei José;Cargnelutti Filho, Alberto;Martini, Luiz Fernando Dias;Carvalho, Melissa Pisaroglo de;
Scientia Agricola , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-90162007000100005
Abstract: using adequate sample size in experimental units improves the efficiency of the research. in the agricultural year of 2004/2005, an experiment was conducted in santa maria, rio grande do sul state, brazil, with the objective of estimating sample size for the following traits: ear length, ear and cob diameter, ear weight, weight of grains per ear, cob weight and the weight of 100 grains, number of grain rows per ear, number of grains per ear and length of grains for two single hybrids (p30f33 and p flex), two three-way hybrids (ag8021 and dg501) and two double hybrids (ag2060 and dkb701) of maize. for a 5% (d5) precision, the weight traits (dehusked ear weight, weight of grains per ear, cob weight and weight of 100 grains) can be sampled with 21 ears; the size traits (ear length, ear diameter, cob diameter and grain length) with eight ears; and the number traits (number of grain and rows) with 13 ears. sample size varies as a function of ear trait and the type of hybrid i.e. single, three-way or double. genetic variability among ears does not correspond to the increasing genetic variability i.e. single, three-way and double for the sample size of traits per ear.

Abstract: This article discusses the use of satellite imaging as a means to support and map out the historical expansion of the borders of S o Paulo State between the discovery of Brazil and its independence. This tool was employed in Cartography of a history, an exhibition staged at Museu Paulista/USP in 2005. The images were generated by Modis, Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission and Landsat-5, and georeferenced with the SPRING image processor as well as georectified mosaics made available by Nasa. They were then checked against a valuable set of cartographic data collected by the researchers working under the Jaime Cortes o History Chair at USP. The said set included information pertaining to the boundaries established by the Treaty of Tordesillas, with its distortions; the Map of the Courts; the captaincies; as well as the trails of bandeiras (exploring expeditions), mon es (expeditions made up and down the rivers of the S o Paulo and Minas Gerais captaincies), and tropeirismos (cattle driving routes). In other words, all the pioneering actions that helped to consolidate the territory of S o Paulo State and to shape much of Brazil′s spatial identity were traced in the images. The researchers also looked into the myth of Brazil as an island and into the purported connection between the Amazon and Paraná Prata river basins based on their geomorphologic attributes as shown on the orbital images. The results were compiled into an 800-megabyte database and displayed at Museu Paulista. This paper describes the methodological procedures used to generate and analyze the images, and provides a summary of the research findings.

Abstract: As little information about the effect of ultra high dilutions of glucocorticoid in reproduction is available in the literature, pregnant female Wistar rats (=12) were blindly subcutaneously treated during all gestational and lactation period with: dexamethasone 4 mg/kg diluted into dexamethasone 15 cH (mixed); or dexamethasone 4 mg/kg diluted in water; or dexamethasone 15 cH, or vehicle. Parental generation had body weight, food and water consumption monitored. The F1 generation was monitored regarding to newborn development. No birth occurred in both groups treated with dexamethasone 4 mg/kg. After 60 days from birth, 12 male F1 rats were randomly selected from each remaining group and inoculated subcutaneously with 1% carrageenan into the footpad, for evaluation of inflammatory performance. Edema and histopathology of the footpad were evaluated, using specific staining methods, immunohistochemistry and digital histomorphometry. Mothers treated with mixed dexamethasone presented reduced water consumption. F1 rats born to dexamethasone 15 cH treated females presented significant increase in mast cell degranulation, decrease in monocyte percentage, increase in CD18

IL-1 inhibition in autoinflammatory diseases
Alberto Martini
Arthritis Research & Therapy , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/ar3711
Abstract: Muckle-Wells Syndrome, Familial Cold Autoinflammatory Syndrome and Chronic Infantile Neurological Cutaneous and Articular Syndrome are IAS due to mutations in a single gene, CIAS1 (cold-induced autoinflammatory syndrome 1, or NALP-3), encoding a protein called cryopyrin which is an essential component of an intracellular multiprotein complex named inflammasome, that play a crucial role in the production and secretion of interleukin (IL)-1 These diseases are characterized by excessive production of IL-1 and have a dramatic response to IL-1 inhibition.More recently, IL-1 inhibition has also been shown to be effective in another AID (TNF-receptor associated periodic syndrome or TRAPS) as well as in other conditions such as systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis and recurrent idiopathic pericarditis. This has suggested that also these two last diseases may represent autoinflammatory conditions.
