A revision and up-to-date in bone infection is made. We point out the relevance of bacterial infections in the etiology of this patology. The pathogenesis and forms of the infection were revised. Concerning the clinical presentation, a classification of these infections as to their evolution was addressed. In the diagnosis of osteomyelitis the importance of radiographic aspects are stressed.

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of the availability of sugar cane residues on the epigeic invertebrate fauna. The evaluations were made after cane sugar harvest f, considering three levels of residues: 0% (total removal of residues from the soil surface), 50% (removal of half of the waste in the plots, the dry mass of 7.6 Mg ha-1) and 100% (keeping track of residues produced, dry mass of 16.9 Mg ha-1). A fragment of native vegetation in the region, located close to the sugar cane crop, was evaluated for comparison. The experimental plots were arranged in a randomized block design with eight replications. Each plot consisted of five rows 20 m long, were installed two pitfalls to capture the invertebrate fauna, representing sixteen traps in each treatment, totaling forty-eight throughout the experiment. The organisms were extracted manually and identified at major taxonomic groups. The highest diversity and groups richness of epigeic invertebrate fauna were observed in the cane sugar crop with the maintenance of the surface residues (100 and 50%). Moreover, complete removal of residues from the soil surface promoted a significant reduction of the soil invertebrates organisms. Soil samples were collected for evaluation of chemical attributes. The organisms of epigeic invertebrate fauna showed sensitive in detecting changes in systems, depending on the maintenance of plant residues of sugar cane.

Objective: To evaluate the accuracy and re=liability of two models of apex locators made in China (Joypex 5 and Root SW) compared to the Root ZX II equipment. Method: Fifteen single-rooted and multi-rooted maxillary and mandibular premolars obtained from the tooth bank of the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul were used in the study. After selection of the teeth, the cervical and middle thirds of the root canals were preflared with Gates Glidden drills #2, 3 and 4. Them, the real tooth length was determined by introducing a #15 K-file into the canals until its tip was seen exiting the larger foramen with the aid of a dental microscope at ×20 magnification under moderate illumination to improve visualization. For the electronic working length determination with Root ZX II, Joypex 5 and Root SW apex locators, an experimental model was prepared in such a way that the cervical third of the roots were fixed in a plastic receptacle and the middle and apical thirds of the specimens remained immersed in saline. The obtained electronic measurements were compared to each other. Kruskal-Wallis and Dunn's tests were used for statistical analysis. Results: The three apex locators were equally efficient, with no statistically significant differences among them (p<0.05). Conclusion: Root ZX II and the two new models of apex locators made in China (Joypex 5 and Root SW) were proven accurate and reliable for providing an acceptable electronic working length determination for the endodontic treatment.

Management systems acting with soil conditioners can change the physical quality of the soil and restrict or maximize agricultural production. In this study, we assessed the effect of the tillage system with and without the gypsum residual effect at different depths in a dystrophic red Oxisol in Dourados, State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The experimental design was randomized blocks with arrangements of subdivided plots; the treatments were two soil manure systems, in plots and with 0 and 2000 kg ha-1 gypsum (subplots) and five depths (0-0.05, 0.05-0.10, 0.10-0.15, 0.15-0.20, and 0.20-0.30 m, the latter ones being the subplots) with four replicates. Physical attributes of the soil and agronomic performance of soybean crop were evaluated. The results show that the soil density was higher in tillage system and the gypsum residual effect influenced the soil density at 0.10-0.15 m deep. The macro porosity was higher at 0-0.05 m deep in conventional sowing and the micro porosity increased with the depth in the manure systems. The penetration resistance increased in higher depths. The tillage system with reduced pod number and gypsum residual effect increased the plant height.

Objective: To evaluate lung function and functional capacity in patients with chronic kidney failure (CKF) undergoing dialysis and in patients after kidney transplant. Methods: Seventy-two participants were evaluated: 32 patients with CKF on dialysis (DG) for at least six months, ten patients who had kidney transplants (TG) at least six months earlier, and 30 healthy subjects as a control group (CG). All groups were evaluated using spirometry, with maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP) and maximum expiratory pressure (MEP), and using the six-minute walking test (6MWT). The SPSS 12.0 software was used for statistical analysis, with a minimum significance level of α<0.05. Results: There was a decreased lung function in the DG for FVC, FEV1, MVV, VC, MIP and MEP, and decreased FEV1 and MVV in the TG compared to the CG (one-way ANOVA/Fisher's post-hoc; p<0.01). There was also an association (chi-square) between decreased MIP and belonging to the DG (λ=0.5, p<0.001), between lower performance in the 6MWT for the DG and TG (p<0.01) compared to the CG (one-way ANOVA/Fisher's post-hoc), and between MIP and MEP (Pearson's coefficient; r=0.752; p<0.01). Conclusions: Patients with CKF undergoing dialysis showed impaired functional capacity and lung function that were not completely reverted in the kidney transplant patients. © Revista Brasileira de Fisioterapia.
