Title: Ureteral Colic And Emotional Stress [cólica Ureteral E Estresse Emocional.]
Author: Ilario E.
Abstract: Clinical practice often shows evidences of organic patterns originated from conflicting psychosocial configurations and excessively stressing contexts of life. The ureteral colic, a frequent and severe morbid entity owing to the lancinating, incapacitating and recurrent pain, however has been kept far from studies which corroborate this perception. MATERIAL AND METHOD--A kind of Case and Control research in 40 patients with an ureteral colic history, has quantified, through the use of the Holmes and Rahe Inventory, the stressing factors in periods of time preceeding the ureteral colic patterns, in comparison to normal controls. RESULTS--The results show a statistically significant difference in favor of cases in a 14 day period, through the stratifying analysis, an individual score higher or equal to 150 points (p = 0.00227949). There was no statistically significant difference in a 12 month period (p = 0.29990307), which makes evident the decreasing of the sensibility concerning the method to this period. CONCLUSION--This result corroborates the evidence of the influence of the emotional stress preceding, in a 14 day studied interval, the unchaining of these crises in predisposed people.
