Peripheral nerves are structures that, when damaged, can result in significant motor and sensory disabilities. Several studies have used therapeutic resources with the aim of promoting early nerve regeneration, such as the use of low-power laser. However, this laser therapy does not represent a consensus regarding the methodology, thus yielding(More)
The Sciatic Functional Index (SFI) is a quite useful tool for the evaluation of functional recovery of the sciatic nerve of rats in a number of experimental injuries and treatments. Although it is an objective method, it depends on the examiner's ability to adequately recognize and mark the previously established footprint key points, which is an entirely(More)
In order to qualify and quantify nerve fiber lesion following an acute crush injury, a morphologic and morphometric study was carried out in 25 Wistar rats divided into five groups of five animals each according to the crushing load applied, i.e., 500, 1,000, 5,000, 10,000, and 15,000 g. The injury was produced under general anesthesia on a 5mm-long(More)
The influence of direct electric stimulation on nerve regeneration was studied in a model of crush injury of the sciatic nerve of rats. Forty-three rats were used and distributed in four groups according to the procedure: (1) intact nerve, inactive circuit; (2) crush injury, inactive circuit; (3) intact nerve, active circuit; (4) crush injury, active(More)
Ultrasonometry seems to have a future for the evaluation of fracture healing. Ultrasound propagation velocity (USPV) significantly decreases at the same time that bone diameter decreases as healing takes place, thus approaching normal values. In this investigation, both USPV and broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) were measured using a model of a(More)
We report our experience with the use of a bone block graft from the iliac crest to correct diaphyseal defects of the forearm bones. The technique was used in 12 patients (ten men and two women, average age 29 years) for defects resulting mainly from either closed or compound fractures, which later developed infection and bone tissue loss. The average(More)
An experimental study on the correlation between functional and morphologic recovery of crushed sciatic nerves was carried out in rats. The sciatic nerve of 33 rats, divided into three groups, was submitted to controlled crushing injury on a 5-mm long segment, in a universal testing machine for 10 min with three different loads (100, 500, and 15,000 g,(More)
Although mental disorders are frequent among dermatological patients, little is known about their recognition by dermatologists. This study aimed to assess dermatologists' ability to recognize depressive and anxiety disorders. All adult outpatients who visited four dermatologists on predetermined days (n=317) completed the 12-item General Health(More)
An aneurysmal bone cyst was submitted to cytogenetic analysis. The modal chromosome number was 46. The composite karyotype was 40 approximately 48,XY,-Y[4],-6[3],del(7)(q32)[3],-9[3],+12[2],+13[2], inv(16)(p13.1q24)[4],-17[3],-19[4],-20[3][cp13]. The clonal structural changes detected were del(7)(q32) and inv(16)(p13.1q24). The breakpoints involved affected(More)
OBJECTIVE The influence of dose of low power lasertherapy (AsGaAl, 830 nm) on the regeneration of the fibular nerve of rats after a crush injury was evaluated by means of the functional gait analysis and histomorphometric parameters. METHODS Controlled crush injury of the right common fibular nerve, immediately followed by increasing doses (G1: no(More)
