INTRODUCTION In patients with chronic ischemic heart disease, a severe ventricular dysfunction is associated with a higher operative risk and to a worse late clinical outcome. However, when there is sufficient viable myocardium, surgical revascularization can improve ventricular performance and above all the functional capacity and survival of these(More)
Pirifibrate was given to 53 patients with type IIa, IIb or IV hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP), and the results of the first three months of treatment were evaluated. Patients in the study had cholesterol and triglyceride plasma levels higher than 300 mg/100 ml and 200 mg/100 ml, respectively, after following a diet without any pharmacological treatment for one(More)
Rev Esp Cardiol 2004;57(1):7-11 7 Despite continuous technological advances, we have yet to develop the perfect means of replacing human heart valves. In the case of the aortic valve, there can be no doubt that the best option available is replacement by another human valve. Pulmonary autograft (the Ross operation) ensures hemodynamic performance very(More)
At present, arterial conduits are the key elements of coronary bypass surgery. The clear benefits of using the left internal mammary artery for revascularization of the left anterior descending coronary artery have encouraged the use of other arteries in different areas. The right internal mammary artery and the radial artery are competing for the role as(More)
A 56-year-old female patient was transferred due to the presence of a left supraclavicular pulsatile mass. Further work-up was performed to confirm diagnosis. Angiography and computed tomography were also performed. The anatomy of the thoracic aorta suggested an unknown and untreated aortic coarctation. A second aortic narrowing was identified at the aortic(More)
An epidemiologic approach to the involutive general population was made to detect patients and risk group of insomnia. The survey was carried out in one health area of Oviedo, during the winter of 1990. A total of 329 elderly persons were interviewed, and three questionnaires were used: the G.H.Q., MMSE and a questionnaire "ad hoc". In the study, sleep(More)
