Repositório Comum (25.504 recursos)

É um repositório para instituições de ensino e investigação produtoras de literatura científica cuja dimensão ainda não justifica a criação de um repositório próprio. Permite integrar instituições, grupos ou indivíduos na infra-estrutura do projecto, nomeadamente através das pesquisas do Portal RCAAP e da B-On.

  1. Anomalia Congénita Coclear: Tentativa de Relação Embriológica e Anátomo-Funcional

    Maurício, JC; Biscoito, L; Branco, G
    In this review of cochlear malformations, 17 cases were studied by CT scan (high resolution-target program) including 10 males and 7 females. The anomaly was bilateral in 12 cases and unilateral in 7 (the latter included 2 Mondini type aplasias and one Michel). The cochlear malformation (whose most frequent expression was the cochlear hypoplasia with 1 or 1 1/2 spires-65% of the cases) was associated to semicircular canals and/or vestibular aqueduct anomaly in 82% of the patients; it was exclusively of the anterior labyrinth in 18% of the cases. A middle ear malformation coexisted in 29%: in 3 cases with...

  2. Schwannoma, a rare tumor of the seminal vesicle

    Furtado, AM; Carrasquinho, E; Ferreira, M; Afonso, A; Ferrito, F
    We present a rare case of a schwannoma of the seminal vesicle that occurred in a 43-year-old male with symptoms of the lower urinary tract. Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging documented a solid mass in the patient's left seminal vesicle. A transvesical approach with a transtrigonal midline incision was successfully performed. The microscopic aspect was compatible with schwannoma.

  3. Rastreio de doença coronária no diabético assintomático. Como e em quem?

    Matos, P
    Screening for coronary artery disease (CAD) in the asymptomatic diabetic patient is controversial with respect to both patient selection and rational choice of screening methods. Epidemiological studies in the real world and improved knowledge on risk markers have changed the criteria that help refine global risk stratification in a patient population that is per se high risk. Over the past years, it is likely that we have been overestimating the risk when using the classical risk factors. This review highlights the role of novel risk markers in the global assessment of diabetic patients, and identifies the best diagnostic approaches to...

  4. Prevalence and classification of rhinitis in the elderly: a nationwide survey in Portugal

    Morais-Almeida, M; Pite, H; Pereira, AM; Todo-Bom, A; Nunes, C; Bousquet, J; Fonseca, JA
    BACKGROUND: Nationwide epidemiologic data on rhinitis in the elderly do not exist. This study aimed to estimate the prevalence of rhinitis in the population aged 65 years or above in mainland Portugal and to characterize and classify rhinitis in this age group. METHODS: Cross-sectional, nationwide, population-based survey of citizens aged 65 years or above, living in mainland Portugal. Current rhinitis (CR) was defined as the presence of at least two symptoms: 'repeated sneezing and itchy nose', 'blocked nose for more than one whole hour', or 'runny nose when not having a cold or flu', either usually or in the last 12 months. Rhinitis...

  5. Position statement on bioresorbable vascular scaffolds in Portugal

    Campante Teles, R; Pereira, H; Cyrne de Carvalho, H; Patrício, L; Santos, R; Baptista, J; Pipa, J; Farto e Abreu, P; Faria, H; Ramos, S; Gama Ribeiro, V; Martins, D; Almeida, M
    BACKGROUND: Bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BVS) were recently approved for percutaneous coronary intervention in Europe. The aim of this position statement is to review the information and studies on available BVS, to stimulate discussion on their use and to propose guidelines for this treatment option in Portugal. METHODS AND RESULTS: A working group was set up to reach a consensus based on current evidence, discussion of clinical case models and individual experience. The evidence suggests that currently available BVS can produce physiological and clinical improvements in selected patients. There are encouraging data on their durability and long-term safety. Initial indications were grouped into three...

  6. An alternative explanation of the origin of the signal in diffusion-weighted MRI

    Branco, G
    I formulated an alternative explanation for the origin of the signal in diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) and tested it in a simple experimental model using gelatin. My findings indicate that the signal in DWI is influenced by the passage of water from the sol to the gel state, independently of the presence of cell structures or membrane-dependent diffusion.

  7. The influence of muscles activation on the dynamical behaviour of the tympano-ossicular system of the middle ear

    Gentil, F; Parente, M; Martins, P; Garbe, C; Paço, J; Ferreira, AJ; Tavares, JM; Jorge, RN
    The human ear is a complex biomechanical system and is divided into three parts: outer, middle and inner ear. The middle ear is formed by ossicles (malleus, incus and stapes), ligaments, muscles and tendons, which transfers sound vibrations from the eardrum to the inner ear, linking with mastoid and Eustachian tube. In this work, a finite element modelling of the tympano-ossicular system of the middle ear was developed. A dynamic study based on a structural response to harmonic vibrations, for a sound pressure level (SPL) of 110, 120 and 130 dB SPL applied in the eardrum, is presented. The connection...

  8. Endoscopic stenting for hilar cholangiocarcinoma: efficacy of unilateral and bilateral placement of plastic and metal stents in a retrospective review of 480 patients

    Liberato, MJ; Canena, JM
    BACKGROUND: Endoscopic biliary drainage of hilar cholangiocarcinoma is controversial with respect to the optimal types of stents and the extent of drainage. This study evaluated endoscopic palliation in patients with hilar cholangiocarcinoma using self-expandable metallic stents (SEMS) and plastic stents (PS).We also compared unilateral and bilateral stent placement according to the Bismuth classification. METHODS: Data on 480 patients receiving endoscopic biliary drainage for hilar cholangiocarcinoma between September 1995 and December 2010 were retrospectively reviewed to evaluate the following outcome parameters: technical success (TS), functional success (FS), early and late complications, stent patency and survival. Patients were followed from stent insertion until death or...

  9. Papillary carcinoma arising in struma ovarii versus ovarian metastasis from primary thyroid carcinoma: a case report and review of the literature

    Leite, I; Cunha, TM; Figueiredo, JP; Félix, A
    We present a case of a postmenopausal woman diagnosed with an ovarian mass containing thyroid follicles and foci of papillary thyroid carcinoma during pathological examination. This patient referred having had a metachronous thyroid malignancy 10 years before. The differential diagnosis between a thyroid malignancy arising from a struma ovarii and a metastatic ovarian tumor originating from thyroid-cancer is challenging. Struma ovarii should be considered when thyroid components are the predominant element or when thyroid malignant tissue is identified within an ovarian lesion. Thyroid carcinoma arising from a struma ovarii is reported to occur in a minority of cases. Of these,...
