  1. Pazopanib-Induced Cutaneous Leukocytoclastic Vasculitis: An Exclusion Diagnosis of a Multidisciplinary Approach

    Alpuim Costa, D; Baptista de Almeida, S; Coelho Barata, P; Quintela, A; Cabral, P; Afonso, A; Maia Silva, J
    In phase II/III trials, cutaneous side effects of pazopanib were reported in less than 20% of patients, with only 1–3% being grade 3/4. We present a case of a 66-year-old man with a previous history of left nephrectomy for a stage II clear cell renal carcinoma. Approximately 18 months later, recurrent disease in the lungs, mediastinum, and left psoas and bulky abdominal/pelvic nodal metastasis were documented. He was initially treated with pazopanib 800 mg q.d. and 1 week after starting this therapy, the patient presented with palpable purpura on his ankles. These lesions regressed within 2 weeks off pazopanib, but...

  4. Water protection after tympanostomy (Shepard) tubes does not decrease otorrhea incidence - retrospective cohort study

    Subtil, J; Jardim, A; Peralta Santos, A; Araújo, J; Saraiva, J; Paço, J
    INTRODUCTION: Myringotomy for tube insertion is the most common otologic surgery. Otorrhea is a frequent complication of this procedure and, to prevent it, most surgeons strongly recommend avoiding contact with water as this is thought to adversely impact on post-operative quality of life. OBJECTIVE: To understand the benefit of this recommendation. METHODS: Observational study - retrospective cohort study comparing the incidence of post-operative otorrhea and its impact on patients' quality of life, in two groups of patients comprising children under 10 years of age who underwent bilateral myringotomy and tube placement for chronic otitis media with effusion between May 2011 and May 2012. One group...

  9. Methylated free-circulating HPP1 DNA is an early response marker in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer

    Herbst, A; Vdovin, N; Gacesa, S; Philipp, A; Nagel, D; Holdt, LM; Op den Winkel, M; Heinemann, V; Stieber, P; Graeven, U; Reinacher-Schick, A; Arnold, D; Ricard, I; Mansmann, U; Hegewisch-Becker, S; Kolligs, F T
    Detection of methylated free-circulating DNA (mfcDNA) for hyperplastic polyposis 1 (HPP1) in blood is correlated with a poor prognosis for patients with metastatic colorectal cancers (mCRC). Here, we analyzed the plasma levels of HPP1 mfcDNA in mCRC patients treated with a combination therapy containing a fluoropyrimidine, oxaliplatin and bevacizumab to test whether HPP1 mfcDNA is a suitable prognostic and response biomarker. From 467 patients of the prospective clinical study AIO-KRK-0207, mfcDNA was isolated from plasma samples at different time points and bisulfite-treated mfcDNA was quantified using methylation specific PCR. About 337 of 467 patients had detectable levels for HPP1 mfcDNA...

  12. Neuropathic pain after breast cancer treatment and its impact on sleep quality one year after cancer diagnosis

    Fontes, F; Gonçalves, M; Pereira, S; Lunet, N
    OBJECTIVES: Data regarding the impact of breast cancer treatment-related neuropathic pain (NP) on sleep quality are scarce. Therefore, we aimed to assess the impact of breast cancer treatment-related NP on patients' sleep quality, during the first year after cancer diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 501 breast cancer patients were followed prospectively. Incident NP was identified through systematic evaluations after treatments and one year after enrolment. NP severity was quantified using the Brief Pain Inventory severity subscale and sleep quality was evaluated through the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), at baseline and after one year. Adjusted regression coefficients (β) and 95% confidence...

  16. The Portuguese long version of the Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire II (COPSOQ II) - a validation study

    Rosário, S; Azevedo, LF; Fonseca, JA; Nienhaus, A; Nübling, M; da Costa, JT
    BACKGROUND: Psychosocial risks are now widely recognised as one of the biggest challenges for occupational safety and health (OSH) and a major public health concern. The aim of this paper is to investigate the Portuguese long version of the Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire II (COPSOQ II), in order to analyse the psychometric properties of the instrument and to validate it. METHODS: The Portuguese COPSOQ II was issued to a total of 745 Portuguese employees from both private and public organisations across several economic sectors at a baseline and then 2 weeks later. Methodological quality appraisal was based on COnsensus-based Standards for the selection of...

  17. Follicular Fluid redox involvement for ovarian follicle growth

    Freitas, C; Neto, AC; Matos, L; Silva, E; Ribeiro, Â; Silva-Carvalho, JL; Almeida, H
    As the human ovarian follicle enlarges in the course of a regular cycle or following controlled ovarian stimulation, the changes in its structure reveal the oocyte environment composed of cumulus oophorus cells and the follicular fluid (FF).In contrast to the dynamic nature of cells, the fluid compartment appears as a reservoir rich in biomolecules. In some aspects, it is similar to the plasma, but it also exhibits differences that likely relate to its specific localization around the oocyte. The chemical composition indicates that the follicular fluid is able to detect and buffer excessive amounts of reactive oxygen species, employing a...

  18. Hemolysis, Elevated Liver Enzymes, Low Platelets Syndrome Superimposed on Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

    Martins, I; Conceição, MG; Gomes, PP; Clode, N
    A pregnancy complicated by typical hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets (HELLP) syndrome is reported. At 20 weeks of gestation, a case of HUS was diagnosed, with Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli identified. Plasmapheresis allowed continuation of the pregnancy for 5 weeks. Superimposed preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome were diagnosed after the establishment of nephrotic range proteinuria, hypertension and recurrence of hemolysis. This is a singular case, as it demonstrates that HELLP syndrome can superimpose upon HUS, a fact that can impact future research on reproductive immunology. It also reminds clinicians that the overlapping of clinical and...

  19. The current situation in hip arthroscopy

    Marin-Peña, O; Tey-Pons, M; Perez-Carro, L; Said, HG; Sierra, P; Dantas, P; Villar, RN
    Hip arthroscopy is an evolving surgical technique that has recently increased in popularity.Although femoroacetabular impingement was an important launch pad for this technique, extra-articular pathology has been described through hip endoscopy.Good clinical results in the medium term will allow improvements in this technique and increase its indications.

  20. Pathophysiology, Diagnosis and Treatment of Somatosensory Tinnitus: A Scoping Review

    Haider, HF; Hoare, DJ; Costa, RF; Potgieter, I; Kikidis, D; Lapira, A; Nikitas, C; Caria, H; Cunha, NT; Paço, JC
    Somatosensory tinnitus is a generally agreed subtype of tinnitus that is associated with activation of the somatosensory, somatomotor, and visual-motor systems. A key characteristic of somatosensory tinnitus is that is modulated by physical contact or movement. Although it seems common, its pathophysiology, assessment and treatment are not well defined. We present a scoping review on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of somatosensory tinnitus, and identify priority directions for further research. Methods: Literature searches were conducted in Google Scholar, PubMed, and EMBASE databases. Additional broad hand searches were conducted with the additional terms etiology, diagnose, treatment. Results: Most evidence on the...
