BACKGROUND Hypertension (HTN) is very frequent in patients with renal disease and its prevalence increases as renal failure progresses. METHODS We studied the prevalence of HTN in 1921 patients with different nephropathies. Patients on dialysis and renal transplant patients were not included in the study. HTN was defined as SBP>140 and/or DBP>90 mmHg, or(More)
PURPOSE To compare cardiovascular and respiratory responses to different spontaneous breathing trials (SBT) in difficult-to-wean patients using T-piece and pressure support ventilation (PSV) with or without positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). METHODS Prospective physiological study. Fourteen patients who were monitored with a Swan-Ganz catheter and(More)
BACKGROUND Dual devices allow both continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) and real-time (RT) continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). Patients usually start with CSII, adding RT-CGM later (CGM post-CSII). Lack of use of RT-CGM is the main limiting factor of dual device results. Initiating RT-CGM before CSII (CGM pre-CSII) could increase RT-CGM(More)
Eight millimeter expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (e-PTFE) grafts, tapered to 6 mm at the arterial site, are used by our group in the upper arm in order to avoid midgraft stenosis observed with other graft sizes. Long-term results (1-12 years) on 157 6-8 mm brachioaxillary e-PTFE grafts (Gore-Tex) are analyzed. Early failure was found in 4 grafts (2.5%).(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the 2007 St. Gallen risk categories with the outcomes of patients with node-negative breast cancer (NNBC). PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 1500 women with pathologically T1-T3 NNBC treated at the Clinic Hospital, Valencia University (Spain) from 1982 to 2000.
