Spinal epidural abscesses account for 1 or 2 of every 10,000 hospital admissions, Staphylococcus aureus being the bacterium most frequently involved. Brucellosis is a disorder of worldwide distribution, relatively frequent in South America and in Mediterranean countries in Europe and Africa. Whilst in the USA only 200 cases are reported every year, in Spain(More)
In this paper we propose a method to approximate flow problems in moving domains using always a given grid for the spatial discretization, and therefore the formulation to be presented falls within the category of fixed-grid methods. Even though the imposition of boundary conditions is a key ingredient that is very often used to classify the fixed-grid(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Stroke diagnosis could be challenging in the acute phase. We aimed to develop a blood-based diagnostic tool to differentiate between real strokes and stroke mimics and between ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes in the hyperacute phase. METHODS The Stroke-Chip was a prospective, observational, multicenter study, conducted at 6 Stroke(More)
BACKGROUND Real-world data of current antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) used to treat focal seizures is of importance to understand the efficacy and safety outside of the clinical trial setting. Here we report real-world data from a large series of patients treated with perampanel for 1year. METHODS FYDATA was a multicentre, retrospective, 1-year observational(More)
In this work we design hybrid continuous-discontinuous finite element spaces that permit discontinuities on non-matching element interfaces of non-conforming meshes. Then, we develop an equal-order stabilized finite element formulation for incompressible flows over these hybrid spaces, which combines the element interior stabilization of SUPGtype continuous(More)
In this work we propose a method to prescribe essential boundary conditions in the finite element approximation of elliptic problems when the boundary of the computational domain does not match with the element boundaries. The problems considered are the Poisson problem, the Stokes problem and the Darcy problem, the latter both in the primal and in the dual(More)
In this work we present a novel algorithm for adaptive mesh refinement in computational physics meshes in a distributed memory parallel setting. The proposed method is developed for nodally based parallel domain partitions where the nodes of the mesh belong to a single processor, whereas the elements can belong to multiple processors. Some of the main(More)
We present a parameter-free domain sewing approach for lowas well as high-order finite elements. Its final form contains only primal unknowns, i.e., the approach does not introduce additional unknowns at the interface. Additionally, it does not involve problem dependent parameters which require an estimation. The presented approach is symmetry-preserving,(More)
BACKGROUND Among the acute ischemic stroke patients with large vessel occlusions and contraindications for the use of IV thrombolysis, mainly on oral anticoagulation or presenting too late, primary endovascular therapy is often performed as an alternative to the standard therapy even though evidence supporting the use of endovascular reperfusion therapies(More)
