Under the supposition that ACTH secretion will be compromised by surgical trauma, patients with pituitary adenomas undergoing transsphenoidal adenomectomy are frequently given corticoids, even though this therapy is controversial. We studied 10 patients with pituitary adenomas whose adrenocortical function was sufficient prior to surgery. The ACTH and(More)
Eight patients with nine carotid-cavernous fistulas (CCF), one of them bilateral, have been treated in our Department by embolization of the venous components of the cavernous sinus, either through one of its venous effluents or by direct puncture of the sinus, in an effort to preserve the internal carotid artery (ICA). Five of the fistulas were of(More)
Unresectable meningioma is the cause of a serious clinical problem, for whom no satisfactory mode of treatment is currently available. Meningiomas are known to have receptors for diverse hormones. In this sense, somatostatin receptors were found in every meningioma specimen studied in a recent report. In addition, somatostatin has been able to inhibit(More)
The management of non-functioning pituitary adenomas with bromocriptine is controversial, and surgical treatment is usually prescribed when the visual field is affected. Here we report, what we believe to be the first case of a patient with a non-functioning pituitary adenoma who experienced normalization of visual field defects and a substantial(More)
The endothelium plays a critical role in vascular homeostasis. Recently, a noninvasive method has been developed to assess flow mediated vasodilatation of the brachial artery (FMD). This test is remarkably stable overtime but no clear set of normal values has been developed. The purposes of our study were to evaluate the accuracy and reproducibility and to(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of a new antifungal drug, micafungin, and standard antifungal drugs against endophthalmitis induced in a rabbit by intravitreal injection of Aspergillus fumigatus, an important fungal pathogen. Effectiveness was evaluated by the preservation of b-wave amplitude at 72 h after injection of the fungus(More)
BACKGROUND Anemia is the most prevalent hematological problem in elderly persons, affecting 14% of the males and 6% of the females of the population over 60 years of age in Mexico City. OBJECTIVE To determine the effect produced by the prolonged administration of ferrous fumarate in elderly persons with iron deficiency. METHOD In a population of 178(More)
The authors present a patient with a complex vascular malformation composed of bilateral spontaneous carotid-cavernous fistulas (CCF's). The abnormality was supplied on the right side by the right external carotid artery (ECA) and the right internal carotid artery (ICA), and on the left side only by the left ICA. There was also an arteriovenous(More)
