OBJECTIVE Most publications about prosthetic joint infections (PJI) are referred to elective prosthesis and they exclude arthroplasties due to hip fracture. METHODS We conducted a descriptive study about prosthetic joint infections after joint fracture in Alcalá de Henares Hospital (Madrid) between 2009 and 2014 and we compared with elective prosthetic(More)
OBJECTIVE Staphylococcus aureus is the main causative agent of joint prosthesis infections. The decolonization of the carriers is effective in the prevention of the infections of the elective arthroplasties. The aim of this study is to evaluate if it is also in arthroplasties after hip fracture. METHODS Study in patients with hip fracture who underwent(More)
A hydrogel containing vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) was prepared by free radical polymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and alpha-tocopheryl methacrylate (VEMA), the latter being synthesized previously to its use. The hydrogel containing 20 wt % of VEMA showed equilibrium water content in the range of those of hydrogel networks, at any pH. The(More)
The application of a recently developed method for global optimization to determine parameters in a model for multiphase flow in porous media is presented. The calculations are carried out using software for distributed or cloud computing to search for saddle points and minima of an objective function that is obtained from the iTOUGH2 code. The method is(More)
Vitamin E containing copolymers for biomedical applications were obtained by copolymerization reaction of vitamin E methacrylate (VEMA) with 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA), N,N-dimethyl acrylamide (DMA) or vinyl pyrrolidone (VP), in different experiments. High molecular weight copolymers prepared by free radical reactions initiated by(More)
