INTRODUCTION: The increase in the indications for mechanical thrombectomy and its implementation in Spanish hospitals makes it necessary to determine the costs related to this treatment so as to be able to streamline economic resources and allow them to be distributed in an appropriate manner. AIMS: To analyse the direct costs associated with patients with acute ischaemic stroke who are treated with intravenous fibrinolysis and with mechanical thrombectomy, and to assess the effectiveness and safety of both treatments during the first 90 days of progression in the Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias...

INTRODUCTION: Prevention of suicidal behaviour is a public health priority in the European Union. A previous suicide attempt is the best risk predictor for future attempts, as well as completed suicides. The primary aim of this article is to describe a controlled study protocol designed for prevention of recurrent suicidal behaviour that proposes case management, and includes a psychoeducation program, as compared with the standard intervention (PSyMAC). METHODS: Patients admitted from January 2011 to June 2013 to the emergency room of the Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias were evaluated using a protocol including sociodemographic, psychiatric, and psychosocial assessment...

BACKGROUND: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is the most feared complication associated with vitamin K antagonists (VKAs). We performed a retrospective study on the clinicoradiologic characteristics that influence its outcome. METHODS: We reviewed the clinical histories and neuroimaging studies of all patients attended at the Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias in 2010-2011 who had an ICH while being on VKA and analyzed the differential characteristics between patients with acceptable versus poor outcomes attending to 3 end points: death, poor outcome (modified Rankin Scale [mRS] score ≥ 4) at discharge, and poor outcome 3 months later...

BACKGROUND: An observational retrospective study has been conducted, including 52 patients (37 male and 15 female), ranging from 22 to 65 years old, who underwent an orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) at the Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias (HUCA) between 2007 and 2010. METHODS: The main objective was to evaluate the post-OLT critical complication prognosis usefulness of the precursors of three new biomarkers: mid-regional proadrenomedullin (MR-proADM), carboxy-terminal-proendothelin-1 (CT-ProET-1) and mid-regional proatrial natriuretic peptide (MR-ProANP)...

INTRODUCTION: Carotid stenosis accounts for about 25% of all ischaemic cerebrovascular events. Carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) is a minimally invasive procedure used as an alternative to carotid endarterectomy, especially in high surgical risk patients. AIM: To analyse the effectiveness and safety of the endovascular treatment of carotid stenosis in the Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study consisted in a retrospective analysis of the carotid stenoses treated by means of CAS between February 2005 and April 2010, and the following information was recorded: demographic data, clinical diagnosis, indication of treatment, time between the onset of symptoms and beginning of treatment, angiographic findings, complications and long-term follow-up (including the rate of restenosis)...

METHODS: All admitted to the Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias, Oviedo, during the period 1 May 2008 to 30 April 2009 were examined and those meeting the internationally-recognized case definition were identified...

INTRODUCTION: For nearly the past two decades, cytokines (CKs) have been the only systemic treatment option available for advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC). In recent years, tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have demonstrated clinical activity on this tumour. Our purpose is to describe one centre's experience with the use of CKs and TKIs in the treatment of patients with advanced RCC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was designed as a retrospective chart review of RCC patients who were treated with CKs and/or TKIs in our department between July 1996 and June 2008...

Chagas' disease is an opportunistic infection in the setting of HIV/AIDS. The arrival of HIV-positive immigrants from endemic areas to non-endemic countries makes possible the detection of Chagas' disease in this group of patients. We describe the results of a screening programme conducted in the HIV-positive immigrant population arriving from endemic areas who attended the Tropical Medicine Unit of Hospital Universitario Central of Asturias during 2008. We determined anti-T. cruzi antibodies in all HIV patients arriving from endemic areas who were followed up...

The objective is to analyze whether depressive disorders in elderly individuals attending an emergency room for medical complaints constitute a risk factor for admission. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All patients aged more than 74 years old attending the Emergency Department of the Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias who required comprehensive geriatric assessment from 2004 to 2005 were included in this study...

BACKGROUND: Transplantation is the main palliative treatment for patients with heart failure. Clinical signs of cardiac rejection can be very non-specific or even absent. Thus, successful management relies on early diagnosis, ideally before the onset of clinical features of cardiac dysfunction. Although endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) is the reference diagnostic method, several non-invasive methods have been proposed to reduce the number of EMB performed during the follow-up of the transplanted patient...
