In 1999, on the occasion of the application of the first vaccine dose during the state vaccination campaign against hepatitis B virus (HBV), 390 individuals from the town of Rio Branco, Acre, aged two or more years were selected for the determination of the seroprevalence of HBV and HCV. HBV markers (HBsAg, anti-HBs, and anti-HBc IgG) were determined on(More)
Heat loss leading to hypothermia is common during surgery, particularly when a body cavity is exposed. To determine the principal site of heat loss we used heat flux transducers to measure heat loss from the skin and the exposed abdominal cavity of seven pigs. Heat loss from the skin was 74 +/- 15 W/m2, and from the abdominal cavity, 350 +/- 122 W/m2 (p(More)
We report a 43 years old female who developed an intense precordial pain and arterial hypotension. The patient was admitted to the emergency room in cardiogenic shock. An emergency angiography revealed a total occlusion of the left main coronary artery. An endoluminal coronary angioplasty with the placement of two stents was performed and coronary(More)
BACKGROUND The activity over cellular genetic pattern of ionizing radiation can produce stochastic and unspecific damages. Interventional cardiology operators have increasing exposure times to ionizing radiation and there is no information about the real protection conferred by simple radiological protection devices. AIM To assess the magnitude of(More)
BACKGROUND Exposure to ionizing radiation is a known hazard of radiological procedures. AIM To compare the emission of secondary ionizing radiation from two coronary angiographic equipment, one with digital and the other with analog image generation. To evaluate the effectiveness of external radiological protection devices. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND The success of revascularization procedures for coronary artery disease could be lower in diabetic patients. AIM To report the results of coronary angioplasty in diabetic and non diabetic patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS All angioplasty procedures performed between 1996 and 1999 were recorded. Demographic data, procedure details, hospital(More)
BACKGROUND The usefulness of angioplasty in the first hours of an acute myocardial infarction is widely demonstrated. However, its long term effects are less well known. AIM To report the effects of coronary angioplasty on early and late outcome of patients with acute myocardial infarction. PATIENTS AND METHODS A non-randomized, consecutive and(More)

BACKGROUND Coronary revascularization allows a better survival and quality of life in high risk patients with coronary artery disease. AIM To report the experience in stent placement as treatment for obstructive atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS A prospective analysis of 105 stent placements. A morphological and quantitative(More)
