INTRODUCTION The development of new radiographic techniques and the refinement of microsurgery and reconstructive surgery have been the responsible of the establishment of craniofacial resection (CFR) as the standard treatment of anterior skull base tumors. Overall complication rates varies from 24-56%, according to a review of recently published series. (More)
The aim of this study was to present the prevalence of stroke from a pilot study in old people. The urban site sample (Madrid) was made up of 397 subjects and the rural site sample (Arévalo, Avila) of 862 subjects. The study was performed with a door-to-door methodology. In the urban sample, the prevalence of stroke was 8.5% (CI 95% = 5.5-11.5%) and that of(More)

Follicular thyroid carcinoma is the second most common type of thyroid cancer, and its incidence has increased dramatically in recent years. Although it typically presents as a thyroid nodule, it can spread to distant sites via hematogenous dissemination. Bone metastasis is diagnosed clinically in 2%-13% of patients with differentiated thyroid cancer;(More)
Since 1932 when Cushing's disease has been described, several important advances have been made in diagnosis and management.
