Comparison of DNA Damage and Oxidative Stress in Patients Anesthetized With Desflurane Associated or Not With Nitrous Oxide: A Prospective Randomized Clinical Trial
(Anesthesia and Analgesia, 2018-04-01) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: Little is known about the effects of desflurane associated or not with nitrous oxide (N2O) on oxidative stress and patient genetic material. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of anesthesia ...
Detrimental effects detected in exfoliated buccal cells from anesthesiology medical residents occupationally exposed to inhalation anesthetics: An observational study
(Mutation Research - Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis, 2018-08-01) [Artigo]
Operating room professionals are scarcely aware of their individual occupational exposure to waste anesthetic gases (WAGs). Medical residents spend several hours per day in operating rooms and consequently experience ...

(Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, 2018-08-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of Spondias mombin (SM) supplementation on the cardiac remodelling process induced by exposure to tobacco smoke (ETS) in rats. Male Wistar rats were divided into ...
Effects of Ischemic Preconditioning and Postconditioning in a Renal Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury Model: A Comparative Experimental Study in Rats
(Transplantation Proceedings, 2018-12-01) [Artigo]
Background. Ischemia-reperfusion injury is an unavoidable aspect of transplantation, as well as an important cause of acute kidney injury in clinical practice. Pre- and post-ischemic conditioning are strategies that may ...
Occupational hazards, DNA damage, and oxidative stress on exposure to waste anesthetic gases
(Revista Brasileira De Anestesiologia, 2018-01-01) [Artigo]
Background and objectives: The waste anesthetic gases (WAGs) present in the ambient air of operating rooms (OR), are associated with various occupational hazards. This paper intends to discuss occupational exposure to WAGs ...
