Abstract

Aim: To characterize the patients who came
to the Insitute, Diagnosis and Emergency
Clinic (ICID) of the dentistry service of an
institution of higher education in southwestern
Colombia during the year 2015.
Materials and methods: We reviewed 772
patient admission formats, consolidated
the data in a database and selected sociodemographic
variables of clinical interest.
Results: It was found that 63% were female
patients, the main reason for consultation
is oral rehabilitation with 30%, the most
frequent medical precedent was surgery
with 57%, 33% of men at the clinical
examination presented values of arterial
hypertension, but only 13% reported it;
while 25% of women presented HTA, but
15% reported it and the treatment of choice
was oral rehabilitation with 42%.
Conclusions: We found important aspects
related to the reason for consultation,
medical history and the relevant specialty
for its treatment, as well as the importance
of education and awareness of systemic
compromised diseases such as arterial
hypertension.
