The purpose of this study was to estimate the association among the presence of subependymal nodules (SENs), subependymal giant cell tumours (SGCTs) and gene mutation in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) patients. Clinical records and images of 81 TSC patients were retrospectively reviewed by two neuroradiologists in consensus. All patients were assessed for(More)
The authors report on 31 years of experience with bronchial (BAE) and/or nonbronchial (NBAE) systemic artery embolisation for managing haemoptysis. A total of 534 patients who underwent bronchial artery angiography for haemoptysis between 1979 and 2010 were retrospectively evaluated. Of these patients, 477 (89%) had active bleeding and underwent BAE and/or(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Metastatic carcinoma is rarely seen in cirrhotic livers. The aim of this study is to verify the prevalence of metastases in cirrhotic liver comparing cirrhotic patients with a control group. METHODOLOGY This study is based on 7,092 necropsies performed in two big Hospitals of Porto Alegre, Brazil. Two thousand seven hundred and three(More)
Intraoperative radiotherapy with a single dose of electrons (ELIOT) in the conservative treatment of breast cancer is a possibility under evaluation in clinical trials. The costs of the mobile linear accelerator with a robotic arm, used in intraoperative radiotherapy, are prohibitive for poor countries. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility(More)
Although there is a high rate of pulmonary involvement in patients with schistosomiasis (Shaw and Ghareeb, 1938; Faria, 1952; Menezes, 1957) there have been few publications containing an extensive analysis of the clinical picture and haemodynamic alterations caused by this disease. Outstanding among the few are those by Shaw and Ghareeb (1938), Kenawy(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify the Electromyographic Fatigue Threshold (EMGFT) of the biceps brachii muscle bilaterally during the elbow flexion in tests performed in different times. 30 second test, 1 minute test and fatiguing test, in concentric (CC) and eccentric (EC) phases. Nine healthy young men performed the elbow flexion with loads(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the prevalence of drug use among institutionalized children and adolescents; to assess the degree of associated use of illicit drugs with alcohol and tobacco; and to determine which is the gateway drug to illicit drug use. METHODS A cross-sectional study was carried out in the Fundação Estadual do Bem-Estar do(More)
Muscle fatigue can be a limiting factor to determine index as the electromyographic fatigue threshold (EMGFT) due the alterations in motivation and disconfots. This way, the purpose of this study was to identify the right biceps brachii and left biceps brachii obtained from repetitive elbow flexions at each 100% of total time. Nine healthy subjects(More)
We report a case of unexpected severe skin necrosis after autologous transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous flap breast reconstruction in a patient with homozygosis for the 5,10- methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene. This genetic deficiency is hypothesised as the cause of this exceptional skin necrosis. A 46-year-old woman underwent a(More)
