This article aims to provide a brief review of the main concepts on which the prevention and control of infection are based. Antisepsis comprises a set of techniques aimed at the total sterilization, or at most, disinfection, removing germs that contaminate an environment. Both procedures must be preceded by an environmental cleanup in the location...
Article
Objectives This study was appointed to determine the correlation between the concentration of lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)], apolipoproteins and lipids with biochemical parameters of liver function in a group of patients with reversible cholestasis. We have also determined the concentration of these parameters once solved the biliary obstruction process....

Background The role of mixed pneumonia (virus + bacteria) in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) has been described in recent years. However, it is not known whether the systemic inflammatory profile is different compared to monomicrobial CAP. We wanted to investigate this profile of mixed viral-bacterial infection and to compare it to monomicrobial...

Article
Objective To evaluate whether thrombin injection into the aneurysm sac during endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair reduces the percentage of type II endoleaks. Materials and methods An historical cohort study was conducted on patients who underwent endovascular repair (EVAR) between 2005 and 2012. Two groups were compared; the first...

Background: To decrease maternal and fetal morbidity oftem is indicated the elective termination of pregnancy; when the cervix is unfavourable, it is possible to try to artificially reproduce these changes with exogenous prostaglandins. Objectives: Comparative evaluation of maternal and fetal results between patients in which cervical ripening i...

Article
We studied the association between oxidized low-density lipoproteins (OxLDLs) and early atherosclerosis, assessed by carotid artery intima-media thickness (cIMT), as well as with other known atherosclerosis risk factors in a sample of the general middle- and old-age population of Burgos (Spain). Circulating OxLDL showed a significant and independen...
Article
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between apolipoprotein (a) isoforms and early atherosclerosis, assessed by carotid artery intima-media thickness in a sample of adults of the general population of Burgos, a city in the north of Spain. Design and methods: Lipids, lipoprotein (a), number of carotid atherosclero...

Studies relating chronic otitis media and language disorders in children have not reported consistent findings. We carried out the first selective study aimed at discerning the role of chronic right otitis media in children less than 3 years of age in language development. A total of 35 children were studied using a full linguistic protocol, audito...

Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Enterobacter spp. are a major cause of infections in hospitalised patients. The aim of our study was to evaluate rates and trends of resistance to third-generation cephalosporins and fluoroquinolones in infected patients, the trends in use for these antimicrobials, and to assess the potential correlation...
Article
Background: High levels of lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] have been linked to an increased risk of ischaemic cardiovascular events. We examined whether Lp(a) plasma levels are associated with early arteriosclerosis by measuring intima media thickness in an asymptomatic population of Burgos, Spain. Methods: We determined lipids, lipoprotein(a) by a nephe...
