In the intensive care unit (ICU), the outcomes of patients with acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) are poorly documented. This study aimed to determine the risk factors for death in ICU patients with AMI. A retrospective, observational, non-interventional, multicenter study was conducted in 43 ICUs of 38 public institutions in France. From January 2008 to(More)
We studied the evolution of chronic Chagas' disease in 107 patients with a positive Guerreiro-Machado reaction and 22 non-chagasic, non-heart disease control subjects for a follow-up period of 3 to 10 years (mean follow-up of 4.9 years). After completion of invasive and non-invasive studies, chagasic patients were classified into four groups: IA (normal(More)
After 104 patients with positive serology for Chagas' disease had been followed for a decade, a selection of 66 patients was made from this number and a total of 25 variables obtained from clinical and paraclinical findings were analyzed, with the purpose of knowing which of these variables may be of help, in time, in determining prognosis. The information(More)
We conducted a randomized, prospective study of moxalactam versus gentamicin plus clindamycin in 42 patients with penetrating abdominal trauma. Patients were randomized to receive intravenously either 2 grams of moxalactam every 12 hours or 80 milligrams of gentamicin every eight hours and 600 milligrams of clindamycin every six hours. Antibiotics were(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The metabolic syndrome is an association of closely related alterations. The main objective of this study is to know the frequency of the metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance, and their role as cardiovascular risk indicators in an adult population assigned to Primary Care centers in Spain.

OBJECTIVES To characterise travelling immigrants and the international movements they undertake. To identify the risk journeys that this population makes and to assess the international preventive activities for them compared with those for autochthonous travellers. DESIGN Retrospective, observational study. SETTING Unit of International Health (UIH)(More)
BACKGROUND Intermittent glycemic measurements in patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) can result in episodes of severe hypoglycemia or in a poor control of glycemia range. We designed a study to assess accuracy and reliability of continuous monitoring of tissue glucose for patients with distributive shock. METHODS Consecutive patients(More)
With the purpose of establishing clinical and paraclinical differences among chronic chagasic (MCh) and primary dilated cardiomyopathies (MCDP), 96 MCh and 104 MCDP patients with abnormal ECG were submitted to a study protocol which included clinical history, routine laboratory serology for Chagas' diseases, resting ECG, Chest-X-rays, and cardiac(More)
