Measurement of middle latency responses (MLR) appears to be one of the most useful ways of determining low-frequency auditory threshold. It is known that analog filtering can drastically affect MLR and since most laboratories use different recording characteristics, we carried out these measurements with a number of filter configurations. Ten subjects with(More)
The practice of treating candidates for liver transplantation (LT) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), with locoregional therapies, is common in most transplantation centers. We present our results using transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) as a neo-adjuvant treatment in our center between 2002 and 2013 to determine its effectiveness in downstaging (DS)(More)
We performed a retrospective cohort study between 2002 and 2014 to compare liver transplantation outcomes between recipients of grafts from donors older than and younger than the age of 80 years. Numerical variables were compared with the Student t test when their distribution was normal and the Mann-Whitney test when it was not, whereas categorical(More)
BACKGROUND Virgin olive oil, a recognized healthy food, cannot be consumed in great quantities. We aim to assess in humans whether an optimized virgin olive oil with high phenolic content (OVOO, 429 mg/Kg) and a functional one (FOO), both rich in phenolic compounds (429 mg/Kg) and triterpenic acids (389 mg/kg), could provide health benefits additional to(More)
Therapeutic occlusion of the internal carotid artery is the main option for the treatment of the symptomatic intracavernous internal carotid artery aneurysms, but the issue of the best way of doing the balloon test occlusion (BTO) regarding prediction of future ischemic events remains debatable. Single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) has(More)
Auditory middle-latency responses (MLR) have been recorded in 25 newborns at 60 dB nHL using two wide band-pass filter conditions and a slow stimulation rate of 2/s. With both types of filter, the MLR consisted in an initial positive wave followed by a negative component (Na) and a positive component (Pa). In newborns, this positive component appears in the(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity is a global epidemic that continues to increase in a great number of countries, and it has become a major public health problem in Spain. Unfortunately, the impact of obesity on survival in liver transplantation (LT) recipients is underestimated and controversial. The aim of this study was to determine if obesity is a risk factor for(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the prevalence and disability of headache in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with the general population and to assess the role of chronic psychological stress (CPS) in headache development. METHODS One hundred seventy patients with SLE and 102 control subjects matched for age, sex, and level of education were(More)
