Patients who undergo hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) frequently experience gastrointestinal toxicity as a result of their preparative regimen. The most frequent manifestation is oral mucositis (OM) and diarrhea. We studied the effects of oral care prior to HSCT on the severity of OM. Seventy patients suffering from hematologic malignancies(More)
Salivary gland dysfunction is a common sequela of hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation (HPCT). The investigation of major salivary gland dysfunction with sodium pertechnetate scintigraphy is a non-invasive method that provides images of the parotid and submandibular glands. In this prospective trial, 20 HPCT patients were submitted to scintigraphic(More)
OBJECTIVE To validate the minimal criteria of the histopathologic diagnosis of oral chronic graft-versus-host disease, based on the histopathologic classification of the National Institutes of Health and correlate them with clinical features. METHODS Forty-one specimens containing both oral mucosa and salivary glands were analyzed in slides stained with(More)
BACKGROUND The established pathologic criteria for minor salivary gland (MSG) involvement in chronic graft-vs.-host disease (cGVHD) could play a role in monitoring response to therapy. METHODS We evaluated MSG sequential biopsies during cGVHD therapy in 14 allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) patients. Nine patients that did not develop GVHD after(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to analyze the incidence of and risk factors for healthcare-associated infections (HAI) among hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) patients, and the impact of such infections on mortality during hospitalization. METHODS We conducted a 9-year (2001-2009) retrospective cohort study including patients(More)
The SAPHO syndrome is characterized by specific clinical manifestations of synovitis, acne pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis.

Regarding oral health, the diagnosis of dental caries(More)
OBJECTIVES Oral mucositis is a complication frequently associated with hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, decreasing a patient's quality of life and increasing the occurrence of opportunistic infections. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence and severity of oral mucositis and to assess the correlation of this disease with the oral(More)
INTRODUCTION Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is a conduct used to treat some hematologic diseases and to consolidate the treatment of others. In the field of nursing, the few published scientific studies on nursing care and early hospital discharge of transplant patients are deficient. Knowledge about the diseases treated using(More)
