METHODS External quality control proficiency tests of dengue serological diagnosis were carried out in 1996-1997, 1998-1999,(More)
Early onset infection in neonates caused by group B Streptococcus and the prevalence of colonization by this microorganism in a group of 1,003 pregnant women and their neonates were studied. The capsular serotypes of the colonizing and infecting bacterial isolates and the components of C protein expressed were determined. Except for serotype IV, all the(More)
Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) is widely used as an alternative technique for hydrocephalus treatment. ETV success or failure may be influenced by numerous factors. In this study, we have analyzed preoperative and intraoperative risk factors and suggest an intraoperative scale to predict etV failure. Fifty-one patients (27 adults and 24 children)(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to analyze risk factors for the development of hydrocephalus in newborn infants with germinal matrix (GM) hemorrhage. METHODS The study comprised 271 patients admitted to Carlos Haya University Hospital in Malaga with GM hemorrhage. The following data were recorded: gestational age, gender, twin birth, head circumference at(More)
To study some biological and molecular properties of nine DENV-2 strains isolated during the 1981 Cuban epidemic, temperature sensitivity, viral plaque size, the kinetic of virus replication in newborn mice inoculated by intracerebral route, the influence of pH medium on virus-cell attachment phase and the restriction enzyme pattern were studied. Strains(More)
PURPOSE Intraventricular hemorrhage is the most common cause of infantile acquired hydrocephalus. Our objective is to determine if the implantation of ventriculoperitoneal shunt in posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus as a primary and definitive neurosurgical treatment, with no previous temporary procedures, would decrease complication rates with good functional(More)
INTRODUCTION In liver transplant (LT) recipients, surgical site infection (SSI) represents an important cause of morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVE This study measures the impact of a multimodal approach to the incidence of surgical site infection in LT recipients. MATERIALS AND METHODS All of the LT recipients in our department were registered on the(More)
