Background: Mesenchymal stem cell-based therapy is known to have the potential to induce angiogenesis. However, there are still some limitations regarding their clinical application. Photomodulation/photobiomodulation is non-invasive and non-toxic phototherapy able to stimulate cell viability, proliferation, differentiation, and migration, when th...

Background: Dermal fillers for lip augmentation can be injected using various techniques. Although all seem to provide acceptable results, it is not clear which technique is safer, less painful, and provides greater patient comfort. Objective: To compare patients' self-reported pain intensity during the injection of hyaluronic acid dermal filler...

Background Coronary calcium score (CCS) and coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) assessments using multidetector computed tomography are invaluable for atheromatosis screening. We studied their usefulness in cardiovascular risk assessments, and compared evaluations using the Systematic COronary Risk Evaluation (SCORE) algorithm with th...

Los sarcomas de tejido blando retroperitoneales son tumores raros, que representan aproximadamente del 12% al 15% de todos los sarcomas de tejidos blandos. El diagnóstico precoz no es fácil ya que no hay presentaciones clínicas específicas. Su manifestación clínica ocurre a través de la compresión de órganos o estructuras adyacentes. La cirugía sig...

Introduction and aims: Neuroendocrine tumors are of great scientific interest, given that they are difficult to diagnose and treat. Despite being relatively rare (< 1/100,000 individuals, 1-2% of the gastrointestinal neoplasias) and indolent, their potential malignancy must not be forgotten. An increase in the number of diagnosed tumors has been o...

Background and objectives: The most accurate technology to detect and diagnose subepithelial tumors (SETs) is the endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) combined with puncture techniques, such as the endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) or the endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle biopsy. Going further in the improv...

Conventional endoscopic sonography has allowed precise diagnostics without disturbances, and miniprobes can be easily introduced through the biopsy channel of the endoscope. Miniprobe endoscopic sonography has many benefits compared with conventional endoscopic sonography. Although there are well-known indications for miniprobe endoscopic sonograph...
Article
Although the sympathetic nervous system is involved in injury caused to the kidney by several stressors such as hypertension or ischemia/reperfusion, little is known about the effect of chronic adrenergic stimulation in the kidneys. Upon injury, however, the kidney possesses a high capacity for tubular cell regeneration and functional recovery. The...

Introduction: In 2004 a private clinic began to send patients to our Blood Centre who were included in the Autologous Predonation (APD) Programme. Our Blood Centre has improved this programme on the donation rate in order to optimise its cost-effectiveness and therefore achieve an adequate blood supply to our clients (patients and physicians). Meth...

Heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor (HB-EGF) belongs to the EGF family of growth factors which are ligands of the ErbB receptors. Studies in animals suggest the role of HB-EGF in several pathogenic processes such as atherosclerosis and heart hypertrophy. Here, we set up an assay to measure HB-EGF in human serum. Our ELISA det...

INTRODUCCIÓN: El Síndrome de Fatiga Crónica es una enfermedad severamente debilitante en la que es muy importante marcar los límites de actividad y esfuerzo para no sobrepasarlos. La falta de un marcador sencillo que permita predecir la respuesta al esfuerzo motiva esta propuesta que procede de nuestra observación clínica. OBJETIVOS: Se intenta de...

En ocasiones, un resultado anómalo en una prueba de laboratorio puede deberse al efecto de los fármacos ingeridos por el paciente y no por una enfermedad determinada. Por este motivo, debería tenerse en cuenta a la hora de interpretar correctamente los resultados de un análisis, todos los fármacos que el paciente esté tomando (prescritos por el méd...
