OBJECTIVE In the present work, the effect of narrow-band ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy on a cutaneous microbial population was evaluated in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) and compared with control patients (vitiligo). METHODS Count, isolation and identification of cutaneous microbiota from anticubital fossa were performed in 10 controls and 10 AD(More)
Bovine pericardial (BP) grafts have been clinical use at Biocor Hospital since 1989 for replacement or repair of the ascending aorta (AsAo) and initial segment of the aortic arch (AoAr). The main advantages of BP grafts that have justified their clinical application are much easier surgical technique, perfect hemostasis and low cost. From Feb/89 to Feb/94,(More)
From May 1990 to August 1993, 100 patients underwent aortic valve replacement using the stentless porcine aortic valve. There were 69 males and 31 females. The mean age was 36 (range 11-76) years. Of 70 patients under 40 years of age, 20 were less than 20 years old. Indications included rheumatic heart sequelae in 55 patients (first valve replacement),(More)
From March 1992 to August 1993, 50 patients underwent mitral valve replacement with the new heterologous stentless mitral bioprosthesis in our institution. The development of this heart valve substitute, its technique of implantation and the results observed in the first group of 50 patients have had us to review the initial experience. The surgical(More)
From May 1990 to January 1994, 120 patients underwent aortic valve replacement with the use of the Biocor porcine aortic stentless heart valve (BPASHV). There were 83 male and 3 female patients. The age ranged from 11 seventy-six (76) years with a mean of 36. Eighty-five patients were under 40 years of age. Sixty-four patients underwent their first aortic(More)
The association of transposition of the great arteries (TGA) and total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) is very rare; we report one case of this malformation with an intracardiac type of TAPVR draining into the coronary sinus. The surgical repair was performed directing the coronary sinus blood flow to the tricuspid valve. The proximity of the(More)
Between June 1990 and June 1993, 135 patients received a porcine stentless aortic valve (PSAV) at our institution. In this group, there were 33 patients in whom the stentless valve was used to replace a previously inserted malfunctioning aortic valve prosthesis (n = 19) or to treat acute aortic valve endocarditis (n = 14, five native, nine prosthetic(More)
