INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Coronary bifurcation lesions can be approached using a simple or a complex strategy. In clinical trials with first-generation drug-eluting stents, the complex strategy was not superior to the simple approach. However, to date, the best strategy when using second-generation drug-eluting stents has not been defined. METHODS We(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The advisability of implanting a stent in carotid near-occlusion stenosis is a controversial topic. We have assessed procedural and clinical implications of stent implantation for carotid artery disease with near occlusion. METHODS We included 205 patients who underwent carotid artery revascularisation with a stent. The group(More)
We analyzed a consecutive series of 188 patients, older than 44 years, with significant aortic stenosis, who underwent coronary arteriography (73 women and 115 men). There were 38 patients (20.2%) with coronary artery disease ( or = 50% reduction in the luminal diameter). Sixty-eight patients had typical angina pectoris, 52 atypical angina, and 68 did not(More)
BACKGROUND In selected patients with rectal cancer, laparoscopic surgery is as safe as open surgery, with similar resection margins and completeness of resection. In addition, recovery is faster after laparoscopic surgery. We analyzed long-term outcomes in a group of patients with locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) treated with preoperative therapy(More)
We have analyzed 44 consecutive patients with significant ST-segment depression during the exercise stress test, with the aim of testing the ability of localizing the coronary stenoses. There was a significant correlation only between maximal ST-segment depression in V1-V4 and stenosis in the left anterior descending artery (r = 0.402, p = 0.0067), but the(More)
In this paper we are going to explain some of the problems we have found in our attempts to mechanize the Historical Dictionary (D.H.) of the Spanish language. Our experimental project is a collaboration of the Royal Spanish Academy (R.A.E.) and the Computer Center of the University of Madrid (CCVM). There are, indeed, many procedures for making(More)
