Analysis of cytokine profile and growth factors in platelet-rich plasma obtained by open systems and commercial columns

Alberto de Castro Pochini, Eliane Antonioli, Daniella Zanetti Bucci, Luiz Roberto Sardinha, Carlos Vicente Andreoli, Mario Ferretti, [...]

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082016AO3548

ABSTRACTObjective:To evaluate growth factors and cytokines in samples of platelet-rich plasma obtained by three different centrifugation methods.Methods:Peripheral blood of six individuals with no hematological diseases, aged 18 to 68 years, was drawn to obtain platelet-rich plasma, using the open method and commercial columns by Medtronic and Biomet. The products obtained with the different types of centrifugation were submitted to laboratory analysis, including pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines by flow cytometry assays, the concentration of fibroblast growth factors-2 (FGF-2) and transforming growth […]

Interobserver reproducibility of radiographic evaluation of lumbar spine instability

Saulo de Tarso de Sá Pereira Segundo, Edgar Santiago Valesin Filho, Mario Lenza, Durval do Carmo Barros Santos, Laercio Alberto Rosemberg, Mario Ferretti

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082016AO3489

ABSTRACTObjective:To measure the interobserver reproducibility of the radiographic evaluation of lumbar spine instability.Methods:Measurements of the dynamic radiographs of the lumbar spine in lateral view were performed, evaluating the anterior translation and the angulation among the vertebral bodies. The tests were evaluated at workstations of the organization, through the Carestream Health Vue RIS (PACS), version 11.0.12.14 Inc. 2009© system.Results:Agreement in detecting cases of radiographic instability among the observers varied from 88.1 to 94.4%, and the agreement coefficients AC1 were all above […]

ABSTRACTObjective To evaluate tendinopathy of the pectoralis major muscle in weightlifting athletes using ultrasound and elastography.Methods This study included 20 patients, 10 with rupture of the pectoralis major muscle and 10 control patients. We evaluated pectoralis major muscle contralateral tendon with ultrasonographic and elastography examinations. The ultrasonographic examinations were performed using a high-resolution B mode ultrasound device. The elastography evaluation was classified into three patterns: (A), if stiff (more than 50% area with blue staining); (B), if intermediate (more than […]

Femoral quadriceps neuromuscular electrical stimulation after total knee arthroplasty: a systematic review

Helena Bruna Bettoni Volpato, Paulo Szego, Mario Lenza, Silvia Lefone Milan, Claudia Talerman, Mario Ferretti

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082015RW3140

ABSTRACTThe purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation in patients submitted to total knee arthroplasty. This was a systematic review with no language or publication status restriction. Our search was made in Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, Embase and LILACS. Randomized or quasi-randomized clinical trials evaluating neuromuscular electrical stimulation after total knee arthroplasty were included. Four studies with moderate risk of bias and low statistical power were included, totalizing 376 participants. There was no statistically significant […]

ABSTRACTObjective:To correlate epidemiological data, lifestyle, and psychosocial factors as predictors for clinical manifestation of back pain in patients treated at the orthopedic emergency unit of a Brazilian tertiary care hospital, and to evaluate their interest in participating in a hypothetical program for physical rehabilitation.Methods:This is an observational cross-sectional study. We evaluated 210 patients from the emergency department of a tertiary hospital with a major complaint of back pain. We used: epidemiological multiple-choice questionnaires developed for this study; Oswestry questionnaire for […]

Subdeltoid lipoma causing shoulder impingement syndrome – a case report

Mario Lenza, Miguel Vicente Lenza, Eduardo da Frota Carrerra, Mario Ferretti

DOI: 10.1590/s1679-45082014rc2934

The impingement syndrome is defined by the compression of the rotator cuff tendons against the coracoacromial arch. Several factors contribute to this condition and they are classified as structural or functional factors. The former are changes in the coracoacromial arch, proximal humerus, bursa and rotator cuff, and the latter are related to the mechanism of the upper limb by means of synchronized activity and balanced between the rotator cuff and scapular girdle muscles. The authors report here a case of […]

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082013000100023

Objective:To evaluate effectiveness of the use of platelet-rich plasma as coadjuvant for union of long bones.METHODS:The search strategy included the Cochrane Library (via Central) and MEDLINE (via PubMed). There were no limits as to language or publication media. The latest search strategy was conducted in December 2011. It included randomized clinical trials that evaluated the use of platelet-rich plasma as coadjuvant medication to accelerate union of long bones (acute fractures, pseudoarthrosis and bone defects). The outcomes of interest for this […]
