Introduction: The Progressive Spinal Amyotrophy is an autosomal recessive hereditary disease characterized by the spinal cord motoneurons degeneration, as the type I the most severe. PURPOSE: To describe a physical therapy treatment in a child with type I Progressive Spinal Amyotrophy. Methodology: Descriptive study of a case report of a patient with Progressive Spinal Amyotrophy in physical treatment at the Hospital Santo Antônio Maria Zaccaria in Bragança, Pará. The data was collected from the medical records and the by caregiver.

Her actual physical therapy treatment protocol consists of: active-assisted kinesiotherapy for the limbs, cervical spine and abdomen (2 sets of 10 repetitions), trunk stabilization exercises (2 sets of 1 minute), and pulmonary re-expansion with Infant Voldyne (3 sets of 5 repetitions), 3 times a week. Studies demonstrate the importance of a multidisciplinary treatment in children with muscular atrophy, highlighting the physical therapy in the disease delay, quality of life and survival. As is observed in the present study, the multidisciplinary treatment has ...

Multidisciplinary assistance to breast cancer the nursing and physiotherapys expertise

Review article of International Journal of Aesthetic Medicine and Health Multidisciplinary assistance to breast cancer the nursing and physiotherapys expertise Souza Leão, B. M. L ¹; Câmara, N.

The treatments for this neoplasm vary from mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy to hormonotherapy. Objectives: To clarify the nursing and physiotherapy assistance in the breast cancer treatment. Methodology: It is a literature review that uses the data from SciELO, LILACS. To select the articles there were used these inclusion criteria: Portuguese language, published between 2007 and 2017, with free access and being result of the use of keywords (DECS-BIREME): Breast Neoplasm, Nursing, Physiotherapy, being found seven articles. Results and Discussion: Regarding the psychological, physical and social repercussions that this disease causes to the patient’s life, it is evident that a bigger involvement of the health professionals is necessary.

The palliative cares that will ...

Utilization stem cells and antiangiogenic treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

Review article of International Journal of Aesthetic Medicine and Health Utilization stem cells and antiangiogenic treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) Silva, V.M1, Santos, G.S2, Silva, J.F.S3, Santos, G.M4, Wanderley, M.C.A5, Godone, R.L.N6 1,2,3,4 Student of Biomedicine Course - UNINASSAU- Caruaru; 5, 6 Professor in Biomedicine Course - UNINASSAU- Caruaru. Introduction: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an increasingly common pathology due to the general aging of the population, and has assumed the dimension of a true public health problem. Currently, the applications of cellular therapies are viable in the repair of the corneous tissue. Angiogenesis inhibitors, however, are a class of drugs most commonly used to block the proliferation of new blood vessels. Advances in the study with stem cells and antiangiogenic have provided expectations in the scientific community, as to its use in regeneration of tissues damaged by degenerative diseases. Objective: To relate the advances in research on AMD with the use stem cells and antiangiogenic as an effective treatment for this pathology. Methodology: Electronic data platforms (MEDLINE, PubMed, Scopus) were consulted from 2011 to 2016, using descriptors: “stem cells”, “macular degeneration”, “AMD” and “antiangiogenic”. Results and Discussion: Clinical studies in adult rats showed that stem cells derived from bone marrow applied to the ocular tissue, activated neurological cells called astrocytes, contributed to the regeneration of this tissue due to trauma. The results correlating antiangiogenic as Bevacizumab were included by ANVISA (Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária) in 2011. Therefore, due to its inhibitory effect of angiogenesis, it has been used in ophthalmologic degenerative diseases such as AMD. The regeneration of ocular tissues, through therapy with stem cells presents problems to be solved, by the different types of embryonic tissues. This differentiation should establish criteria for the best choice of the origin of stem cells. Bevacizumab has been used in the ...
