      Introduction: it is estimated that Pediatric stroke is in the top ten causes of death in this age group.3 It is an infrequent disease; nevertheless, is considered one of the principal causes of disability in children. 2,13 Cardiac congenital malformations are to be known as a predisponent factor for ischemic stroke. In the case of hemorrhagic stroke, the principal predisponent factor is artheriovascular cerebral malformations. Objective: describe the frequency of ACV type and scale of disability at discharge after a pediatric stroke in a Peruvian national hospital. Methodology: a descriptive transversal study will be applied to hospitalized patients due to a stroke at the “Instituto Nacional de Salud del Niño”. Results: a total of 140 clinical history charts were analyzed, stroke was more frequent in infants (33,6%) and the male group (67,9%). The intracerebral hemorrhage was the principal typo of stroke (43%). The frequency of severe disability according to PSOM scale was 32,2% and 22,1% with KOSCHI scale. Conclusion: the presence of predisponent factors such as vascular diseases or coagulopathies are frequent. Thus the importance to stablish risk factors in order to determine which patient has more risk and give an early treatment.

      Bernabé Ortiz, Antonio; Arsentales Montalva, Valeria; Tenorio Guadalupe, María Del Rosario; Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2018-01-15)
      Introduction: The priority role of physical activity, both in the prevention and in the management of the components of the metabolic syndrome, has been widely established in the last decade. Objectives: To evaluate the association between physical activity levels at work and the presence of metabolic syndrome among individuals aged ≥20 years in different geographical settings of Peru. Materials and methods: A secondary analysis of a population-based survey was conducted. Five population strata of Peru were included. The data were in accordance with the methodology of the National Institute of Statistics and Informatics. The diagnosis of metabolic syndrome was established according to internationally consensus criteria, based on the anthropometric, biochemical and clinical parameters that are involved in its diagnosis. The exposure of interest was physical activity at work, split into high, moderate and low levels. To evaluate the association of interest, the Poisson regression model was used and crude and adjusted models were created. Results: The data of 4029 individuals were analyzed, average age of 42.1 years (SD 15.3) and 2013 (50.0%) were women. A total of 1011 (25.1%; 95% CI: 23.8% - 26.5%) subjects presented metabolic syndrome, and this percentage varied according to the study region. Metabolic syndrome was more frequent in Lima (29.6%) and the rest of the Coast (30.8%), and less frequent in the rural Sierra (17.4%, p<0.001). The multivariate model showed evidence of association between physical activity at work and the presence of metabolic syndrome. When compared to those who had high physical activity levels at work, those who reported moderate levels of physical activity were 1.51 (95% CI: 1.25-1.81) more likely to have metabolic syndrome, whereas among those with low levels of physical activity levels at work the association was stronger (1.71, 95% CI: 1.42 - 2.07). Conclusions: Low levels of physical activity at work are strongly associated with the presence of metabolic syndrome. For this reason, measures to increase the performance of physical activity at work should be promoted to contribute to the reduction of the prevalence of MS in our population.

      The teenage population is one of the age groups most likely to suffer from depression and are different factors that play an important role in the development of this, within them the "bullying". Objective: To establish the association between depression and aggressors and victims of bullying in high school students of public schools of Chorrillos. Methods: A secondary analysis of a study "Association between victimization by bullying and Internet addiction in Lima schoolchildren" was carried out. The variables depression, and victimization and aggression between pairs were measured, as well as sociodemographic variables. Results: Of a total of 860 students, 63.1% were male, with an average age of 14.5 +/- 1.6 years and it was found that 95.2% lived with at least one of the parents at home. 51.9% presented some degree of depression, 64.2% were categorized as medium and superior tertile of aggressors of the total them, and 62.7% as médium and superior tertile of victims of them. In the adjusted model, moderate-severe depression had a strong association with superior tertile of aggression (PR: 5.37, 95% CI: 2.98-9.66) and with victimization (PR: 4.33, 95% CI: 2.43). - 7.71). Conclusion: Depression was associated with both profiles, of the aggressor and victim of bullying.

      Vega Arias, Ximena; Angeles Abanto, Pedro (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 28/02/2017)
        ABSTRACT News and TV-viewing effects on adults aggresive and violent behavior in urban Peru. Objectives: To evaluate the association between the exposure to TV and news with physical partner violence, interpersonal violence and physical child abuse in some urban cities in Peru. Methods and materials: A secondary analysis was made from a study about violence in 6399 persons over 15 years old who lived in Lima, Callao, Maynas, Arequipa, Cusco, Trujillo y Huamanga. We used bivariate and multivariate logistic regression to estimate statistical association. Results: To prefer to watch news was a less probability factor of developing interpersonal violence (OR=0,62; IC 95%: 0,5-0,77; p<0,001). When performing the adjusted model including potential confounding variables, the association persisted (OR=0,71, CI 95%: 0,57 – 0,89, p=0,004). There was no association found between the other two types of violence and the preference for news and/or TV time exposure. Conclusions: People who prefer to watch news have less risk to perform interpersonal violence. Keywords: violence, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, physical child abuse, TV viewing, news viewing.

      Tejada Caminiti, Romina Arely; Pereyra Elías, Reneé; García Aguilar, Dylan Alessandro; Silva Salazar, Luis Renato (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2017-07-10)
      Background: Physical inactivity is present in 80.3% of 13-15 year old teenagers. Few studies have evaluated the effects of community variables on physical activity. Our research evaluates such association in teenagers from developing countries. Methods: We performed a cross-sectional, analytical, multi-level study; a secondary analysis of the Young Lives cohort, in Peru and India. Physical activity was measured as the self-reported number of days per week that it was performed for at least 60 minutes. A community authority self-reported the presence of air pollution (due to industrial activity), robbery, gangs, drug addicts, and recreational areas. We calculated crude and adjusted exponential regression coefficient (IRR and aIRR), with 95% confidence interval (95%CI) through Poisson family mixed regression models. Results: 1494 participants were included (575 Peruvian, 919 Indian). 50,5% were male; with a median age of 14.9 (Interquartile range [RIC]: 0,6) years. The number of physical activity days in Peruvian participants that lived in communities that reported air pollution (due to industrial activity), was 35% less than the number of those who lived in communities that did not report such a problem (aIRR: 0.65; 95%CI: 0.45-0.93). The number of physical activity days of participants in Indian communities with gangs and recreational areas was 51% (aIRR: 1.51; 95%CI: 1.05-2.18) and 23% (aIRR: 1.25; 95%CI: 1.05-1.48) higher than the ones who did not report these characteristics, respectively. Conclusions: Presence of air pollution due to industrial activity was negatively associated to physical activity in Peruvian population. Presence of gangs and sport courts was positively associated to physical activity in Indian population.

    • Asociación entre actividad física y auto-percepción de pérdida de la memoria

      Bernabé Ortiz, Antonio; Arana Chiang, Alejandra; Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2018-01-29)
      Introduction: Memory is the information stored in neurons so that it can be recovered in the future to be used in adaptive conditions. Self-perception of memory loss itself can be an useful indicator for the screening of cognitive impairment. However, there are few studies about self-perception of memory loss and its associated factors. Objectives: To assess whether there is association between low levels of physical activity and self-perception of memory loss. Methods: Secondary data analysis from the study “Launching a salt substitute to reduce blood pressure at the population level: a cluster randomized stepped wedge trial in Peru” in which participants from 6 villages from Tumbes, Peru were collected between April to July 2014, In this study, the exposition was physical activity which has been evaluated with IPAQ and the outcome was memory loss self-perception evaluated by the British Regional Heart Study Questionnaire. Results: 2376 participants were included. Average age was 43.3 years (SD: 17.2) and 1196 (50.4%) were female. On the other hand, 293 (12.3%; IC 95% 11.0%-13.7%) participants self-perception of memory loss and 219 (74.7%) presented low physical activity. In multivariate model association between low physical activity and self-perception of memory loss was found (RP = 1.20; IC 95% 1.01 – 1.44). Conclusions: Our study evidenced association between low physical activity and self-perception of memory loss in adult population of a semiurban area of Tumbes.

      Hernández Díaz, Adrián Vladimir; Estela Chunga, Edilberto; Ayasta Monge, Ana Lucía; Hinostroza Villacorta, Carlos Eduardo (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2018-12-10)
      Objetivo: Determinar si existe asociación entre altura a más de 2260 msnm (metros sobre el nivel del mar) y presencia de cardiopatías congénitas en pacientes pediátricos menores de 18 años en el INSN, Lima-Perú, en los años 2017-2018. Material y métodos: Estudio transversal en niños de la consulta externa, interconsulta, ecoconsulta y hospitalización del servicio de cardiología pediátrica, mediante la realización de encuestas a madres de los pacientes y revisión de historias clínicas. Se registró el distrito, ciudad y departamento donde las madres residieron durante el embarazo, para luego buscar la altura correspondiente. La presencia de cardiopatías congénitas fue recogida del informe ecocardiográfico en las historias clínicas. Las asociaciones fueron evaluadas en modelos de regresión de Poisson con varianza robusta, y los efectos fueron descritos como razón de prevalencia (RP). Resultados: Analizamos 570 casos (mediana: 2 años (RIC 0 a 6), 51.8% varones). La mediana de altura fue 161 msnm (157 a 182); la prevalencia de cardiopatía congénita fue de 68.07% (IC 95% 64.1 a 71.7). Se encontró 80.5% de cardiopatías congénitas acianóticas y 19.5% de cianóticas. Las más comunes fueron comunicación interventricular (29.0%), ductus arterioso persistente (17.5%), comunicación interauricular (17.0%) y Tetralogía de Fallot (3.5%). En el análisis multivariado encontramos que una gestación en zonas de más de 2260 msnm estuvo asociada a una probabilidad 20% mayor de desarrollar cardiopatías congénitas en comparación a zonas menores de 2260 msnm (RP: 1.2, IC 95% 1.1-1.3, p=0.002). La distribución de alturas de este estudio demostró que la mayoría de pacientes con cardiopatías congénitas fueron gestados a una altura menor a 1500 msnm. Adicionalmente, aquellos pacientes con síndrome de Down tuvieron un aumento significativo de probabilidad (30%) de presentar cardiopatía congénita (RP: 1.3, IC 95% 1.2-1.4, p<0.001). No existe asociación entre el número de cardiopatías congénitas y la altura de residencia. Conclusiones: En un centro de referencia pediátrico peruano encontramos que una altura mayor a 2260 msnm estuvo significativamente asociada a un 20% mayor de presentación de cardiopatías congénitas.

      Piscoya, Alejandro; Bernabé Ortiz, Antonio; Rodríguez Medina, Angélica Desiree; Sánchez Siancas, Luis Enrique (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2015-02-04)
      Objective: To determine the association between perceived social support and induced abortion among women from maternal health centers in Lima, Peru. Besides, prevalence and incidence of induced abortion were estimated in this population. Material and Methods: Cross-sectional study enrolling women aged 18 to 25 years. Induced abortion was defined using one of the Rossier methods: difference between the total number of pregnancies ended in abortion and the number of spontaneous abortions, whereas perceived social support was assessed using the DUKE-UNC scale. The association between variables of interest was estimated using generalized linear models adjusting by potential confounders. Results: A total of 298 women were enrolled, mean age 21.6 (SD: 2.2) years. Low levels of social support was found in 43.6% (95%CI 38.0%–49.3%) and 17.4% (95%CI: 13.1%– 21.8%) reported at least one induced abortion. The incidence of induced abortion was 2.37 (95%CI: 1.81–3.11) per 100 persons-year of follow-up. There was evidence of the association between social support and induced abortion (RR=1.93; 95%CI: 1.13–3.30) after controlling for potential confounders. Conclusions: There was evidence of an association between perceived social support and induced abortion among women aged 18 to 25 years. The incidence of induced abortion was similar or higher than countries where abortion is legal. A great proportion of women had low levels of social support. Strategies to increase social support and reduce induced abortion rates are needed.

    • Asociación entre consumo de frutas y verduras con prevalencia de depresión

      Bernabe Ortiz, Antonio; Maguiña, Jorge L.; Wolniczak Rodriguez, Isabella (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2017-02-21)
      There is evidence suggesting a healthy diet may reduce the risk of depression. The aim of this study was to assess the association between fruits and vegetables consumption and the presence of depressive symptoms in Peru. Materials and methods: Secondary analysis of the Encuesta Nacional Demográfica y Salud Familiar (ENDES) 2014. The study included people aged 18 years and over, habitual residents of selected households. The outcome was presence of depressive symptoms evaluated using the PHQ-9 (cutoff > 14). The exposure of interest was self-reported fruit and vegetables consumption assessed using an adaptation of the questionnaire STEPs from World Health Organization (WHO) and divided into tertiles. Prevalence ratios (PR) and 95% confidence intervals (95%CI) were estimated using Poisson regression models and adjusting for the study’s multistage design. Results: A total of 25901 participants were included in the analysis; of these, 13972 (53.9%) women, mean age of 44.2 (SD 17.7) years. The prevalence of fruits and vegetables consumption according to WHO recommendation was 3.5% (95%CI: 3.3%-3.7%), while depressive symptoms prevalence was 3.2% (95%CI: 3.0%-3.4%). In the multivariable analysis, and compared with the highest tertile of fruits and vegetables consumption, those in the middle tertile (PR=1.38, 95%CI 1.01-1.87) and lower tertile (PR=1.81, 95% CI 1.36-2.45) were more likely to have depressive symptoms. Conclusions: The study shows an inverse association between vegetables and fruits consumption and the presence of depressive symptoms. These results may be useful to generate strategies for promoting better diet in similar contexts.

    • Asociación entre el consumo de alcohol y muerte en pacientes diagnosticados de tuberculosis pulmonar pansensible: Una Revisión Sistemática y Meta-análisis

      Ugarte Gil, Cesar; Sánchez Siancas , Johanna Edith (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2018-01-16)
      INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most important infectious diseases worldwide and is considered a public health problem since it is the first cause of death associated with a single infectious agent and it’s responsible for 1.3 million deaths despite being a curable and preventable pathology. Several health strategies have been created for the management and control of this disease, however, there are barriers that prevent its proper control which leads to negative results, being the most severe death. Among these barriers, there is alcohol consumption. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the association between alcohol consumption and death in patients diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis under treatment with Isoniazide, Rifampin, Pyrazinamide and Ethambutol. METHODS: A systematic search was performed in four databases: EMBASE, LILACS, PUBMED / MEDLINE and SCOPUS. We included all the bibliography found until November 2017, taking into account cohort and cases and controls studies whose subjects were adults diagnosed with pulmonary TB under first- line antiTB treatment. The measurement of alcohol consumption for the comparison of results was classified as "alcohol consumption / no alcohol consumption" and "alcoholic / nonalcoholic". RESULTS: A total of 9 studies were included, all of them cohort. Two evaluated the risk of death during treatment in those who consumed alcohol, while seven studies did so in alcoholic patients (Pooled RR of 1.57 IC 95%: 1.21 -2.04). There was no significant variation in the variance or the pooled RR when performing an analysis based on the sensitivity of the studies. CONCLUSIONS: Alcoholism increases the risk of death during TB treatment. These results will help health personnel to implement more comprehensive actions and develop follow-up and supervision strategies in these patients who are a population at risk.

    • Asociación entre el consumo de alcohol y resultados negativos en pacientes diagnosticados de tuberculosis pulmonar pansensible: Una revisión sistemática y meta-análisis

      Ugarte Gil, Cesar; Ochoa, Andrea; Ueda, Daniela (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2018-01-16)
      BACKGROUND: Tuberculosis (TB) is a treatable and preventable infectious disease, however, it has high rates of morbidity and mortality, making it one of the most important diseases in the world. Different factors interfered with an adequate treatment, leading to loss to follow up and failure. Between these factors, there is alcohol consumption. OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the association between alcohol consumption and a negative treatment outcome of pulmonary TB. METHODS: A systematic research of the literature available was made in EMBASE, LILACS, PUBMED/MEDLINE and SCOPUS. We considered all the literature available till November 2017. Cohort and case-control studies that evaluated adult patients with diagnosis of pulmonary TB were included. RESULTS: A total of 19 studies were included in this study, of them 3 cohort studies found association between alcohol consumption and loss to follow up to TB treatment (Pooled RR: 2.26; 95% CI: 1.26-4.03). Other 13 papers evaluated association between alcoholism and loss to follow up, 7 of them were case and controls studies (Pooled OR: 2.86; 95% IC 2.01- 4.07) and the others 6 were cohorts (Pooled RR: 2.38; 95% CI: 1.65-3.43). We could not found association between alcoholism and failure. There was not significant variation in the pooled RR/OR valor post analysis based on sensibility. CONCLUSIONS: Alcohol consumption, especially alcoholism, increases the risk of loss to follow up during TB treatment. This study will encourage health personnel to detect opportunely patients that consume alcohol, which are a population at risk of developing a negative treatment outcome, and implement more comprehensive actions for better monitoring.

    • Asociación entre el control glicémico en pacientes con Diabetes Mellitus tipo 2 y grado de depresión según Escala de Beck II en el Hospital Edgardo Rebagliati Martins en Octubre del 2014

      Carreazo, Nilton Yhuri; Ticona Bedia, Carlos; López Burga, Marianelly; Mariluz Cuadros, Melissa; Pereda Ginocchio, María Gracia (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2016-02-02)
      Introduction: Depression is an important problem of public health because it is the primary cause of disabling psychiatric illness in Peru. Also, the presence of depressive symptoms could modify the adherence to the treatment and a high probability of a bad glycemic control in patients with Diabetes Mellitus type 2 (DM2). Methods: A cross-sectional analytical study was done, with 98 patients who were diagnosed with DM2, who went to the Endocrinology Department during the period of October-November 2014 in a social security hospital. We used three scales, the first one was The Beck Depression Inventory II which evaluated the presence of depressive symptoms; the scale of Problem Areas in Diabetes (PAID) evaluates the emotional stress they faced during the illness, and the Morisky-Green Scale is the third scale used which valued the adherence to the pharmacological treatment. Results: in population, the predominance was on female sex (53,8%), with a mean age of 56 years tended to be younger than 60 years (p> 0.05), married and a superior grade. BMI was associated with the presence of depressive symptoms (p 0.003), and most often found in those with obesity, type II and III. The population had 57.7% of poor glycemic control, of which 73.3% had depressive symptoms (p <0.05), and 84.1% had no adherence to treatment (p <0.05). It was found a significant association between bad glycemic control and presence of depressive symptoms independently of the potentially confounding variables with a prevalence ratio to 1.9 (1, 1 -3, 6). Conclusions: It is concluded the association between the bad glycemic control and the presence of depressive symptoms in diabetic patients. Therefore, it is suggested to use an integral approach on such patients who will be subject to a psychological evaluation.

      Hernandez, Adrian V.; Lázaro Alcántara, Herbert; Ríos Meléndez, Kathleen Stefanie Esther; Natividad Núñez, Augusto Alonso; Vilca Hau, Guillermo Gerónimo (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2017-03-10)
      OBJECTIVE: To determine the association between hyperinsulinism (HI) and pregnancy in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). PATTERN: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of observational studies that evaluated the association between hyperinsulinism and obstetric outcomes. We searched the literature through the databases of PubMed-MEDLINE, Web of Science, Embase, Scopus and Cochrane databases until June 2015. PATIENT(s): Women on reproductive age with polycystic ovarian syndrome. MAIN EFFECTS OF RESULTS: The primary outcome was pregnancy; The secondary outcomes were miscarriage, gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. For the analysis of the study we used the random effects model. RESULTS: We found 7 prospective cohorts and 4 case-control studies (n = 711). The percentage of pregnancy in women with hyperinsulinemia was significantly lower than in women without hyperinsulinemia (45/213 [21.1%] vs 114/273 [41.8%], or 0.36, 95% ci 0.21-0.62, p <0.001). There was no difference in the percentage of miscarriages between women with hyperinsulinemia and women without hyperinsulinemia (9/100 [9.0%] vs 15/147 [10.2%], or 0.90, 95% ci 0.36-2.22, p0.001). The information was scarce regarding the effects of gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. Conclusions: There is a significant and inverse association between hyperinsulinism and pregnancy in women with PCOS. Likewise, we do not found differences between PCOS patients with HI and PCOS patients without HI regarding the risk of miscarriage.On the other hand, there was not enough information to analyze the results of gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.

    • Asociación entre el índice cintura talla y ansiedad en mujeres en edad mediana de 11 países de Latinoamérica: análisis secundario de un estudio multicéntrico de corte transversal

      Mezones Holguín, Edward; Blümel, Juan Enrique; Chedraui, Peter; Arroyo Alberto, Karen Jazmin; Ramos Torres, Gabriela Isabel (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2017-03-03)
      Objective: To evaluate the association between waist-to-height-ratio (WHtR) and anxiety in middle age women adjusted by demographic, clinical and habits variables. Methods: We carried out a secondary analysis of data from a multicenter study of women between 40 and 59 years old from 11 Latin America countries. Anxiety was assessed using the Goldberg Anxiety and Depression Scale. WHtR was calculated according World Health Organization standards and was categorized in tertiles: superior, intermediate and inferior with cut points of 0.45 y 0.6; respectively. We calculate prevalence ratios with confidence interval 95% (PR: 95%CI) by generalized linear models of Poisson family with robust standard errors both crude and adjusted models based on statistical and epidemiological criteria. Results: A total of 5580 women were analyzed. The mean age was 49.7±5.5, and 57.9% were postmenopausal. The 61.3% of women had anxiety and WHtR mean was 0.54 ± 0.1. Compared with the women in inferior tertile, the people in the intermediate (PR: 1.07; 95%CI: 1.01-1.13) and superior (PR: 1.23 95%CI: 1.07-1.29) ICT tertile were significantly more likely to have anxiety at the crude model. However, in the adjusted models only women in superior tertil had more probability of anxiety than those in inferior tertile (PR: 1.13 95%CI: 1.08-1.18). Conclusion: In this series, WHtR was associated with anxiety in middle-aged women. It is advisable to incorporate this anthropometric measure in routine clinical practice of climacteric women evaluation.

    • Asociación entre el índice tobillo brazo y el riesgo cardiovascular en pacientes con Diabetes Mellitus tipo 2 en el Hospital Nacional Edgardo Rebagliati Martins

      Segura, Eddy R.; Rivasplata Vásquez, Esther; Zapata Cárdenas, Juana Karina; Pinelo Coll Cárdenas, Anna Caroll (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2014-06-30)
      INTRODUCCION: La DM2 es un problema de salud pública que afecta del 2 al 5% de la población mundial. Asimismo, los pacientes con esta enfermedad tienen de 2 a 4 veces más probabilidad de presentar un ECV. Debido a ello se han establecido diversas escalas de RCV a nivel mundial, como son las escalas de Framingham y UKPDS. Existen otras formas de establecer el RCV, como es el ITB, herramienta de gran utilidad para identificar la presencia de EVP, la cual incrementa el RCV en pacientes diabéticos y en la población en general. OBJETIVO: Establecer si existe asociación entre el Índice Tobillo Brazo (ITB) con el nivel del riesgo cardiovascular (RCV) en pacientes con Diabetes Mellitus tipo 2 (DM2). MATERIALES Y METODOS: Estudio transversal de 151 pacientes con DM2, consecutivamente atendidos, adscritos al sistema del Seguro Social (ESSALUD). Se define como ITB normal a los valores comprendidos entre 0,9-1,4 e ITB anormal <0,9. Éste se calculó mediante la división de la mayor de las presiones de las arterias tibial posterior y pedia de ambos miembros inferiores, halladas con un transductor Doppler; entre la mayor de las presiones en ambos brazos, halladas con un esfingomanómetro. Por otro lado, el RCV estimado mediante las escalas de Framingham y United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS), se dividen en tres categorías: leve (<10%), moderado (10-20%) y severo (>20%). Se analizó la asociación de las variables mediante OR, análisis bivariado con p < 0,05, y además se realizaron pruebas de regresión logística. RESULTADOS: La mayoría de sujetos del estudio fueron de sexo femenino con 63,6%, la media de edad fue 61,4 años (DE 10,4). No Se encontró asociación entre el ITB y el RCV estimado según la escala de Framingham ni UKPDS (p > 0,05). Al igual que el analisis entre los factores independientes de las escalas de riesgo cardiovascular y el ITB anormal.

      Introducción La adherencia al tratamiento es el factor más importante para lograr éxito en la terapia anti – retroviral. Sin embargo, aquella podría verse afectada por el consumo de sustancias psicoactivas. Objetivo Evaluar la asociación entre el riesgo de adicción a sustancias psicoactivas, medido por el “Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test” (ASSIST) y la adherencia a la terapia anti - retroviral de gran actividad (TARGA) medido por el “Simplified Medication Adherence Questionnaire” (SMAQ) en personas que viven con el virus de inmunodeficiencia humana (VIH). Métodos Se desarrolló un estudio transversal en el Hospital Nacional Edgardo Rebagliati Martins (HNERM). Se aplicó una ficha de datos, y las encuestas ASSIST y SMAQ. Resultados Se obtuvo un total de169 personas que viven con VIH. El sexo masculino predomino (79,3%), la mediana de edad y tiempo en TARGA fueron 43 años (IQR 35 - 50) y 63 meses (IQR 20 – 156), respectivamente. El consumo de alcohol de bajo riesgo fue más frecuente (84,6%), y se encontró un riesgo moderado a alto de tabaco (35,5%). La adherencia global al TARGA para nuestro estudio fue baja (23,1%). Los pacientes de mayor edad presentaron mayor adherencia (42,9%), con asociación significativa en el modelo regresión logística (edad ≥ 53 años) (p=0,004; OR 8,55; IC 95% 2,00 – 36,57). Conclusiones No se encontró asociación entre el riesgo de adicción a sustancias psicoactivas y adherencia al TARGA. Se encontró una baja adherencia al TARGA según el SMAQ. Además, la edad es un factor asociado positivamente a la adherencia al TARGA.

      ASSOCIATION BETWEEN THE TIME OF DIAGNOSIS OF ILLNESS AND COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT IN PATIENTS WITH MELLITUS DIABETES TYPE 2 SOCIAL SECURITY IN LIMA METROPOLITANA ABSTRACT Introduction Type 2 diabetes mellitus is associated with an increased risk of developing cognitive impairment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between years of disease diagnosis and cognitive impairment in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Material and methods An analytical cross-sectional study was carried out enrolling patients assisted by the External Consultative Service of Endocrinology in three hospitals of the Social Health Insurance (ESSALUD). Sampling was non-probabilistic with consecutive enrollment. People of both sexes, aged 45 years and older, were included and voluntarily consented to participate in the study. All participants were given the Leganés Cognitive Test (cut-off point ≤22) for cognitive impairment. The exposure of interest was years of diagnosis of diabetes, defined as the self-report of the number of years elapsed from diagnosis to interview and then categorized into groups (≤5, 5-9, 10-14,15-19 and ≥ 20 years). The prevalence ratio (PR) and the 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were estimated to evaluate the association of the variables of interest. Results A total of 614 participants were evaluated, 54.2% women, and an average age of 66.6 (SD: 4.2). The average disease duration was 14.6 years (SD: 10.4) and 195 (31.8%) had 20 or more years of illness. The prevalence of cognitive impairment was 36.8% (95% CI 33.0% - 40.6%). In the adjusted analysis, those patients with ≥ 20 years of diabetes diagnosis were more likely to have cognitive impairment (RR: 1.59; 95% CI: 1.10-2.29) compared to those with <5 years of disease Conclusion There is a positive association between the time of diagnosis of disease in patients with diabetes and the presence of cognitive impairment.

    • Asociación entre hipertensión arterial y depresión: un estudio de base poblacional en Perú

      Bernabe Ortiz, Antonio; Godoy Carrillo, Maria Clauda; Meneses Saco, Alejandra Fabiola (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2016-07-05)
      Objective: This study aimed to determine the association between hypertension and depressive symptoms, as well as to estimate the prevalence of both hypertension and depressive symptoms in the Peruvian population. Methods: Data from a population-based study was utilized. People aged ≥18 years and current residents of selected areas were included. The presence of depressive symptoms was measured using the PHQ-9 scale while hypertension was estimated using the mean of two measurements made during the interview. Poisson regression with robust standard errors was used to estimate prevalence ratios (PR) and confidence intervals at 95% (95% CI) for the association of interest. Results: Data from 25699 individuals were analyzed, mean age was 44.1 (DE: 17.7) years, 54.0% were females. The prevalence of depressive symptoms and HTA were 2.7% ((IC95%: 2.5%-3.0%) and 21.9% (IC95%: 21.1%-22.9%), respectively. In the multivariable analysis, HTA was not associated with the presence of depressive symptoms (PR=1.16; IC95% 0.90-1.50) after adjusting for confounders and the study design. Conclusion: This study found no association between hypertension and the presence of depressive symptoms.

    • Asociación entre la adherencia al tratamiento antirretroviral de alta actividad y la mala calidad de sueño en pacientes con infección por el virus VIH en un Hospital público de Lima Metropolitana

      Mezones Holguín, Edward; Tello Velásquez, Jorge Renzo; Díaz Llanes, Bruno Eduardo (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2014-30-01)
      Con el objetivo de evaluar si existe asociación entre la mala calidad de sueño (MCS) y la adherencia al tratamiento antirretroviral de gran actividad (TARGA) en personas con infección por VIH/SIDA; llevamos a cabo un estudio analítico de corte transversal que incluyó 389 pacientes peruanos en TARGA. La MCS fue medida con la escala de Pittsburgh y la adherencia con el CEAT-VIH. Realizamos un modelo lineal generalizado de familia Poisson con errores estándar robustos para estimar razones de prevalencia y su intervalo de confianza al 95% (RP; IC95%). A nivel crudo la MCS leve, moderada y severa se asoció a la adherencia inadecuada. Al ajustar por las variables asociadas en el análisis bivariado o por las variables teóricamente asociadas a la adherencia, solo la MCS moderada/severa se mantuvo asociada (RP: 1,34; IC95%: 1,17 a 1,54) y (RP: 1,34; IC95%: 1,16 a 1,57), respectivamente. Concluimos que la MCS moderada/severa se asocia de manera independiente con la adherencia al TARGA. La evaluación de la calidad de sueño podría ser útil en la valoración integral del paciente con VIH.
