Case Reports in Surgery , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/964093
Abstract: Introduction. Visceral artery aneurysms are uncommon. Among them, splenic artery is the most common (46–60%). Most splenic artery aneurysms are asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally, but its rupture, potentially fatal, occurs in up to 8% of cases. Presentation of Case. A female patient, 64 years old, diagnosed with a giant aneurysm of the splenic artery (approximately 6.5?cm in diameter) was successfully submitted to endovascular treatment by stent graft implantation. Discussion. Symptomatic aneurysms and those larger than 2?cm represent some of the main indications for intervention. The treatment may be by laparotomy, laparoscopy, or endovascular techniques. Among the various endovascular methods discussed in this paper, there is stent graft implantation, a method still few reported in the literature. Conclusion. Although some authors still consider the endovascular approach as an exception to the treatment of SAA, in major specialized centers these techniques have been consolidated as the preferred choice, reserving the surgical approach in cases where this cannot be used. For being a less aggressive approach, it offers an opportunity of treatment to patients considered “high risk” for surgical treatment by laparotomy/laparoscopy. 1. Introduction Visceral artery aneurysms (VAAs) are uncommon. Among them, splenic artery is the most common (46–60%), followed by hepatic artery (20%) and superior mesenteric artery (5-6%) [1–6]. Seventy-five percent of VAAs are asymptomatic. The most common symptom is pain in the upper left quadrant of the abdomen or in the epigastrium, radiating to left shoulder, nausea, and vomiting. [1, 2, 7, 8]. The rupture occurs in 3% to 8% of cases, is manifested by hypovolemic shock, and is potentially fatal [1, 2, 4, 7, 8]. The splenic artery aneurysms can be approached by laparotomy, laparoscopy, or endovascular techniques. The endovascular option, less invasive, has less morbidity and faster postoperative recovery [1–4, 8]. Among the various endovascular techniques, covered stent implantation has been little reported in the literature. The authors present a case of splenic artery aneurysm treated by this method. 2. Presentation of Case A female patient, 64 years old, controlled hypertension, and 2 previous pregnancies, presented as main complaint episodes of mild pain in the epigastrium and left hypochondrium, evolving for about 12 months. Physical examination of the abdomen was nonspecific, with ill-defined pain on palpation of the mesogastrium and left hypochondrium. In the hospital of origin she was submitted to

Abstract: we report a case of a patient with a major complaint of left lumbar pain, diagnosed with bilateral renal angiomyolipomas (amlrs), with the most voluminous lesion of 6.2 cm in its largest diameter, underwent endovascular superselective arterial embolization with microspheres. the amlrs are rare benign tumors. most are sporadic, while a minority is associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (etc). the amlrs larger than 4 cm must be treated due to higher risk of complications, especially hemorrhagic. a selective arterial embolization (eas) is an effective and safe treatment for amlrs.

Quando os estudantes tinham problemas na escola, a maioria contou aos pais (63%), 55% relataram aos amigos, sendo os professores escolhidos em terceiro lugar (19%), (alguns estudantes n o relataram a qualquer pessoa - 11%).

This paper intends to analyze students' perception of school staff in respect to responses to school violence episodes. A self-report questionnaire developed by the authors with questions about experiences of school victimization and offenses within the last six months was employed in three schools in Southern Brazil.

No significant differences among schools regarding the protection provided by employees were found. In the presence of employees, an average of 78% students were called names by other students (chi-square, d.f.=4, Z=7.892, p=0,096); 54% received threats (chi-square, d.f.=4, Z=2.742, p=0,602); and 54% were beaten (chi-square

Abstract: La literatura etnobotánica, antropológica y etnofarmacológica ha se alado una fuerte relación entre las plantas alucinógenas y su efectividad como medicamento. A pesar de todas las pruebas e informes, hay muchas cuestiones que no están claramente discutidas para permitir la aceptación de esta idea. En este trabajo, a partir de una investigación bibliográfica, nos proponemos investigar cómo diferentes autores se han ocupado de la cuestión y cuáles son las posibilidades de investigación que puedan emerger de esto.

Abstract: this work reports the optimization and method validation for sulfonamides (sulfamethazine, sulfaquinoxaline, sulfadimethoxine and sulfathiazole) in shrimp muscle using hplc-uv. the sulfonamides were extracted with acetonitrile and acetic acid, and the extract cleaned up with a strata scx spe cartridge prior to analysis. the method presented linearity in the range of 20-120 μg kg-1, good linear correlation (r > 0.99), and limits of quantification in the range of 4.7-20.2 μg kg-1. the recovery for shrimp muscles spiked with 50-150 μg kg-1 ranged from 63.2-108.0%. precision and accuracy analysis showed acceptable relative standard deviation. commercial shrimps were analyzed and sulfonamides don't were found above of the method limit of quantification.

Abstract: the european process of convergence should lead us to think about the kind of studies and professionals we want for the future. in this context, the situation of humanistic disciplines, like history, is very fragile. this article explores the need to include the history of nursing in the academic curriculum to obtain not only a basic knowledge about the profession, but also some necessary skills to deal with different information sources, and help to assessing the patient's cultural environment. in this sense we outline some historiografical categories that should allow us building a meaningful history of nursing.
