Aims: This study investigated the skin thermal response of lower limbs in elderly with or without osteoarthritis before and after exercise. Methods: 70 elderlies (75.1±6.7 yrs., wt: 70.5 ±9.3 kg, ht:1.6±0.1 m, BMI: 29±3.4 kg/m2) were divided in 4 groups: men with osteoarthritis (n=7), men control (n=17), women with osteoarthritis (n=13), women control (n=33). Results and Discussion: Men with osteoarthritis presented higher temperature in the anterior and posterior thigh before exercise in comparison to the Control (p<0.05), but there was a significant decrease after exercise (anterior: -1.1±1.0 and -1.6±1.5 oC for right and left; respectively, posterior: -1.3±1.5 and -1.6±2.0 oC for right and left; respectively). Similar results were observed in the women (p<0.05) in the posterior thigh (-0.6±1.0 and -0.6±0.9 oC for right and left; respectively) and anterior leg (p <0.05, -0.6±0.9 and -0.6±0.8 oC for right and left; respectively). In the knee, men with osteoarthritis have a lower pre-exercise temperature (-0.7±0.9 and 0.5±1.2 oC for right and left; respectively) in comparison to the Control, but was but there was a significant increase (p<0.05), after exercise (1.8±2.0 and 2.1±2.2 oC for right and left; respectively). Conclusion: subjects with osteoarthritis present a higher skin temperature in the thigh before exercise, but occurred decreases after exercise. In contrast, the pre-exercise skin temperature ...

Universidade de Pernambuco, Recife- PE-Brasil Introduction: Spinal cord injury (MRT) is a traumatic external injury that compromises or not the function of the spinal cord or nerve roots. In Brazil it is estimated that about 40 new cases per year per million inhabitants occur. OBJECTIVES: To compare scientific publications through an integrative review, related to the prevalence of MRT in young adults in Brazil. Methodology: This is an integrative review based on articles from LILACS (Latin American and Caribbean Literature in Health Sciences) and SCIELO (Scientific Electronic Library Online), published from 2007 to 2017. It was built in the following phases: 1) problem formulation 2) data collection 3) data evaluation 4) analysis and interpretation 5) presentation of results. Results and Discussion: It was observed that the articles found that deal with spinal cord trauma, point to the prevalence of MRT in an age group that picks up from childhood the old age being more recurrent in young male adults. The results reveal that accidents involving cervical trauma are more frequent in the age group of 20- to 30-year-old males. It has also been observed in state hospitals that TRM injuries generate a longer time of hospitalization and, consequently, an increase in hospitalization costs. The main etiologies of TRM were falls and traffic accidents with cars and motorcycles. Conclusion: It is extremely important to educate the population about the risks of TRM ...
