Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) constitute an important cause of hospital-acquired infection associated with morbidity, mortality, and cost. The aim of these guidelines is to provide updated recommendations for the diagnosis and management of CRBSI in adults. Prevention of CRBSI is excluded. Experts in the field were designated by the two participating Societies (Sociedad Española de Enfermedades Infecciosas y Microbiología Clínica and the Sociedad Española de Medicina Intensiva, Crítica y Unidades Coronarias)...

Objective: To investigate the independent association between vitamin D deficiency (VDD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) in Mexican adult population. Method: Matched case-control study. Data cardiovascular on risk factors, medication use, physical activity, alcohol use, smoking and vitamin D consumption were obtained. Biochemical variables, anthropometric and blood pressure were measured. 25(OH)D was quantified by chemiluminescence. Results: We studied 250 patients with established CAD and 250 age-gender-body mass index (BMI) matched control subjects, with a mean age of 53 ± 6...

Background: The endothelium is a monolayer of cells that extends on the vascular inner surface, responsible for the modulation of vascular tone. By means of the release of nitric oxide (NO), the endothelium has an important protective function against cardiovascular diseases. Objective: Verify if cis- [Ru(bpy)2(NO2)(NO)](PF6)2 (BPY) improves endothelial function and the sensibility of conductance (aorta) and resistance (coronary) to vascular relaxation induced by BPY...

Background: Cox-Maze III procedure is one of the surgical techniques used in the surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF). Objectives: To determine late results of Cox-Maze III in terms of maintenance of sinus rhythm, and mortality and stroke rates. Methods: Between January 2006 and January 2013, 93 patients were submitted to the cut-and-sew Cox-Maze III procedure in combination with structural heart disease repair. Heart rhythm was determined by 24-hour Holter monitoring...

INTRODUCTION: Multivessel disease in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is associated with a worse prognosis. A multivessel approach at the time of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the subject of debate. OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of a multivessel approach on in-hospital morbidity and mortality in patients with STEMI undergoing primary PCI. METHODS: We studied patients from the Portuguese Registry of Acute Coronary Syndromes with STEMI and multivessel disease who underwent primary PCI...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The present study was performed to establish a scientific method for the typing of portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) by investigating the degrees of esophageal-gastro varices, the incidences of rupturing hemorrhage and the prognoses of different types of patients with PVTT. METHODOLOGY: We collected 76 patients with HCC and PVTT in the People's Hospital of Liaocheng from March 2005 to July 2010 and divided them into two types by whether the PVTT exceeded the entry of vena coronaria ventriculi to the portal vein...

OBJECTIVE: To study the protective effect of oxymatrine (OMT) on myocardial fibrosis induced by acute myocardial infarction in rats and its effect on TGF-beta-Smads signal pathway. METHOD: Arteria coronaria ligation-induced acute myocardial infarction model was established in rats. The survived rats were randomly allotted into the model group, 50, 25, 12.5 mg x kg(-1) OMT groups, the 50 mg x kg(-1) captopril group, and the Sham-operated group which was treated as the model group without the arteria coranaria ligation...

INTRODUCTION: Pandemic Influenza A (H1N1)v infection is the first pandemic in which intensive care units (ICU) play a fundamental role. It has spread very rapidly since the first cases were diagnosed in Mexico with the subsequent spread of the virus throughout the Southern Cone and Europe during the summer season. OBJECTIVE: This study has aimed to compare the clinical presentation and outcome among the critical patients admitted to the ICU until July 31, 2009 in Spain with some series from Latin America...

We evaluated the efficacy and safety of amlodipine besylate alone or in combination with other antihypertensive agents in high-risk hypertensive patients in Spanish primary care. In this 1-year, open-label, prospective cohort study, 7468 patients were treated with amlodipine 5 - 10 mg as a monotherapy or as an add-on therapy to attain blood pressure control (target of < 140/90 mmHg or, in patients with conditions such as diabetes or chronic kidney disease, < 130/85 mmHg). At 12 months, the primary outcome (change from baseline in predicted 10-year coronary heart disease risk) was -8...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Diabetes mellitus is a prevalent disease with high cardiovascular mortality. Treatment of risk factors can reduce the associated cardiovascular risk. The CORONARIA study included 7253 patients with high risk systemic hypertension from different regions of Spain. The aim of this study was to analyze the cardiovascular risk (CR) of diabetic patients at baseline and after one-year follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHOD: A total of 2105 (29%) patients with type 2 diabetes and systemic hypertension are included in the CORONARIA study...

Isolated cases of photosensitization in grazing cattle are observed in a greenland district of North West Germany close to the North Sea. With adequate treatment the disease usually takes a benign course. Sometimes, however, also the claws are involved in the disease process with the consequence that the photodermatitis later on is followed by chronic exungulation. Details of a respective case are described and documented by pictures: A non-pregnant heifer (age 2 years) was falling sick with acute photodermatitis and Pododermatitis/-dermatosis coronaria aseptica in late autumn (November)...

INTRODUCTION: Given the sanitary repercussion of serious intrahospital pneumonia (SIP), representatives of three scientific societies (SEMICYUC; SEPAR and SEIMC) have developed during 2002 and 2003 a practical guide for its treatment. METHOD: A task force was constituted to value five clinical situations related with the treatment of SIP: 1) critical revision of the existent guidelines and groups of risk definition; 2) entry criteria in ICU for SIP; 3) SIP treatment in function of the groups of risk; 4) special situations in SIP treatment, and 5) control treatment...
