Of six patients registered in our center with nonparaneoplastic limbic encephalitis associated with antibodies to voltage-gated potassium channels, the five men had rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder (RBD) coincident with voltage-gated potassium channel antibody-associated limbic encephalitis onset. In three patients, immunosuppression resulted in(More)
Wind turbines may have an important impact on power quality. Flicker is a more serious issue for fixed-speed wind turbines, because these turbines produce electric power following the variations of the incident wind. During continuous operation, wind variations will result in power fluctuations and consequently in voltage fluctuations. It is necessary to(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE We analyze the main factors influencing the time delay between onset and admission to the hospital in acute stroke. PATIENTS AND METHODS Consecutive series of 1,344 patients with acute stroke or transient ischemic attack admitted at two reference hospitals of Valencia and included at the same stroke register. Factors assessed(More)
Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECS) produce fluctuating output power, which may cause voltage fluctuations and flicker. Flicker assessment in networks may be difficult, since its evaluation requires long computing time and special procedures to calculate the flicker severity index, Pst. A frequency domain method to study flicker propagation is presented.(More)
INTRODUCTION Meningoencephalomyelitis can be due to a number of treatable causes. A tumoural aetiology is rare and they are generally malignant tumours with an ominous prognosis. We report a case of meningoencephalomyelitis that initially presented as encephalitis due to herpes simplex virus (HSV) and which was finally seen to be an anaplastic(More)
OBJECTIVES To find out about stroke patients: who decides to seek medical help, where they go, how long it takes to contact the health system and to arrive at the ED. METHODS Prospective study of patients admitted in our hospital for transient or established stroke. RESULTS Among 388 stroke patients (mean NIHSS of 7.8 (±7.4), there were 37 intracerebral(More)
INTRODUCTION Endovenous thrombolysis is the preferred treatment in the early hours following cerebral infarction and delays are the main obstacle preventing it from being used on a more widespread basis. The stroke code (SC) is a system that allows stroke patients to be identified quickly and taken to the most suitable hospital for such treatment to be(More)
