The role of energy deregulation and altered/adapted metabolism in tumor cells is an increasingly important issue in understanding cancer. Hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell carcinoma (HLRCC) is an aggressive form of RCC characterized by germline mutation of fumarate hydratase (FH), followed by somatic loss of the remaining wild-type allele and known(More)
OBJECT Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring is increasingly used in the treatment of patients with malignant middle cerebral artery (MCA) infarction. However, neurological deterioration may exist independent from intracranial hypertension. This study aimed to present the findings of continuous ICP monitoring in a cohort of patients with malignant MCA(More)
UNLABELLED Lactate and the lactate-pyruvate index (LPI) are two hypoxia markers widely used to detect brain tissue hypoxia in patients with acute traumatic brain injury. These two markers have a more complex behavior than expected as they can be abnormally high in circumstances with no detectable brain hypoxia. This condition must be considered in the(More)
Cerebral microdialysis is a tool that provides very relevant information in the metabolic monitoring of brain injured patients. It is a particularly effective technique for the detection and analysis of small molecules, given that the pores of the dialysis membrane act as a barrier to restrict the transport of larger species, such as proteins and other(More)
