BACKGROUND Best medical therapy (BMT) provides patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) substantial protection against future vascular events. OBJECTIVE To determine the quality of BMT received by PAD patients in this vascular surgery unit. METHODS Retrospective case-note review of 50 consecutive patients in each of the following groups:(More)
BACKGROUND In spite of the progress made in the prevention of transfusion-transmitted infections over the last years, these still occur. It was considered that infection by hepatitis B (HBV) and C (HCV) viruses could be a major problem in Uruguay, especially among high-risk individuals, such as multi-transfused patients.

Best Medical Therapy (BMT), comprising smoking cessation, antiplatelet agent use, cholesterol reduction, exercise therapy, and the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension and diabetes(More)
This work presents a probabilistic model for the microscopic simulation of traffic roads based on Nagel-Schreckenberg's model. Each driver's behavior is described through the combination of a continuous probability function with an an-ticipatory feature that leads to a counter flow velocity tunning. The simulations developed and described herein give rise(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the embryological and clinical aspects of the different types of pyelocaliceal diverticula, with special reference to the differential diagnosis and treatment. METHODS Images of type I and II pyelocaliceal diverticula are shown. The conditions that cause difficulty in making the differential diagnosis are discussed. RESULTS Urography(More)
