Introducción: El pie diabético es causa frecuente de hospitalización. Objetivo: Examinar el impacto de la revascularización en la preservación de los miembros inferiores. Método: Estudio retrospectivo de pacientes diabéticos con úlceras en el pie. Se evaluó extensión del tejido perdido conforme las clasificaciones PEDIS y de Wagner, así como indicaciones y técnicas de revascularización. Los factores involucrados en la amputación mayor y el salvamento de la extremidad fueron evaluados por pruebas Fisher y chi cuadrado...

The significance of the high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) level in percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs) is unclear. Troponin-T and hs-CRP levels were measured before PCI, after stenting, and 8 h, 24 h, and 30 days after the procedure in 68 consecutive patients who received bare-metal stents. The study endpoints were death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, and the need for revascularization. The mean follow-up time after PCI was 16.6 months. Patients who experienced an event had higher hs-CRP levels 24 h (P=...

Myocardial revascularization with coronary bypass graft surgery or angioplasty is the conventional treatment for ischaemic heart disease. The progressive refinement of both techniques (eg, use of arterial grafts and drug eluting stents) has improved clinical outcomes but the elucidation of which of the two treatments is more effective would require well designed randomised studies. While the utility of off-pump as compared to on-pump coronary bypass graft surgery is still debated, the evidence for the exclusive use of arterial conduits for surgical revascularization is compelling...

OBJECTIVE: Our objective was that of describing a series of episodes of upper limb deep venous thrombosis, with special emphasis on the incidence of posthrombotic syndrome and its impact in the quality of life of the patients. METHODS: 33 episodes (29 patients) of upper limb deep venous thrombosis were studied, between January 1995 and January 2002; episodes until September 1999 (18 episodes) were considered retrospectively while those which took place starting in this date (15 episodes) were considered prospectively...

UNLABELLED: The aim of this study was to present our clinical experience and results of different treatments in 83 atherosclerotic renovascular hypertensive patients treated in the last 15 years in the Instituto de nefrologia in Havana. Regardless of the type of treatment the patients were divided in two groups. Group I: 52 (62.3%) cases with standard oral hypotensive drugs alone and control of other cardiovascular risk factors (mean age 53 years old, sex m/f 50/50%, race white/no-white 75/25%, mean known hypertension follow-up 10...
