AIMS This study aimed to determine the prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Spain and identify the level of undiagnosed disease and its impact on health-related quality of life (HRQL) and activities of daily living (ADL). METHODS A population-based sample of 4274 adults aged 40-80 years was surveyed. They were invited to answer a(More)
OBJECTIVE The Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ) is an instrument for the detection of patients with bipolar disorder (BD). The original English version is validated in both the psychiatric and the general population, but a validated Spanish version is not yet available. Psychometric properties of the Spanish adaptation of the MDQ in psychiatry are(More)
We aimed to describe changes in the prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Spain by means of a repeated cross-sectional design comparing two population-based studies conducted 10 yrs apart. We compared participants from IBERPOC (Estudio epidemiológico de EPOC en España) (n = 4,030), conducted in 1997, with those of EPI-SCAN(More)
PURPOSE To identify the relation between the Hill-Sachs (H-S) angle and arm position at the time of the initial dislocation, and to see if this correlates with the glenoid track. METHODS A total of 102 patients (89 male patients, 87.2%), with a mean age of 32 years (range, 17 to 38 years), were divided into 2 groups, abduction (ABD) and adduction (ADD),(More)
PURPOSE To compare the surface area available for bony contact and the width of bone on each side of the Latarjet fixation screws in the traditional Latarjet technique versus the congruent arc modification of the Latarjet technique. METHODS Computed tomographic scans of 24 shoulders in patients with glenohumeral instability who underwent multiplanar(More)

Glenoid bone loss presents a major risk for glenohumeral instability that has been well recognized as a cause of instability recurrence after attempted Bankart repair, and although most surgeons consider the Latarjet procedure as the gold standard, failures can occur with this technique as well and the search for alternative grafts to address glenoid bone(More)
Isolated patellofemoral osteoarthritis is relatively prevalent, with the lateral facet of the patella being the most commonly affected portion. This pathology can be a result of a patellar maltracking syndrome, patella instability, or idiopathic degenerative changes. A thorough diagnostic work-up with a physical examination and imaging studies are mandatory(More)
