Ketamine has been shown to be effective in the treatment of neuropathic pain. We present a case of severe complex regional pain syndrome type 1 that was treated with oral ketamine. The response and tolerability of this preparation suggest that further study is warranted.
INTRODUCTION Diabetes mellitus type 2 (DMT2) is a major cause of death in the world. The medical therapy for this disease has had enormous progress, but it still leaves many patients exposed to the complications developed from the disease. It is well known the beneficial effects of bariatric surgery in obese diabetic patients, however it is important to(More)
OBJECTIVE We searched the medical literature from the last 15 years (1998 to 2013) relating to the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of vulvodynia. The evidence was reviewed supporting the therapeutic proposals currently in use and propose the incorporation of novel, minimally invasive, interventional therapies, within the context of a multidisciplinary(More)
In the preparation of a centralized parenteral nutrition unit project in our hospital, following the creation of a multi-disciplinary commission entrusted with the study of this project, we proceeded to evaluate parenteral nutrition protocols of national and foreign hospitals, as a first approach to the subject. This study evaluates and extracts the data we(More)
In order to improve the quality of prescription and reduce expenditure, the artificial nutrition department has designed a new usage protocol: justification sheet, table of indications for parenteral nutrition (PN), nutritional assessment, etc. The Pharmacy Department is in charge of the follow-up of this programme and maintaining the database derived from(More)
BACKGROUND Although bariatric surgery proved to be a very effective method in the treatment of patients in whose pancreas still produce insulin (type 2 diabetes), the accompanied metabolic syndrome and their diabetes complications, there is no information on the effect of this type of surgery in BMI24-34 patients when pancreas do not produce insulin at all(More)
OBJECTIVE Intrathecal granuloma associated to the tip of subarachnoid catheters implanted in patients receiving long-term spinal infusion is a rare but potentially catastrophic complication. Its development seems to be related to the intrathecal administration of opioid drugs, although not all opioids induce granuloma formation with the same frequency. (More)
BACKGROUND The use of bariatric surgery to treat diabetes mellitus (DM) requires procedures developed for morbid obese in patients with normal and over-weight. Therefore, we started tailoring one anastomosis gastric bypass (BAGUA) adapted to each patient. This study analyzes changes in body composition (BC) of patients with BMI 23-50 after BAGUA as well as(More)
BACKGROUND It is common clinical practice to perform magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with indwelling programmable intrathecal drug delivery (IDD) systems, although the safety of the procedure has never been documented. We performed a single-center, 3-year, prospective evaluation in patients with a programmable implanted IDD to assess patient(More)
The aim of this work was to investigate whether the nuclear matrix could provide the nucleation sites for dispersed parental nucleolar components to form post-mitotic prenucleolar bodies (PNBs). For this purpose, nuclear matrices from asynchronous populations of onion cells were fractionated, and the distribution of the insoluble components of the nucleolar(More)
