[Lipid lowering treatment of severe hypertriglyceridemia with acute pancreatitis caused by everolimus in a patient with a neuroendocrine tumor].

An Sist Sanit Navar 2020 Apr 20;43(1):103-106. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Servicio de Endocrinología y Nutrición. Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra. Pamplona..

Everolimus is an mTOR inhibitor, approved as a treatment for cancer and as an immunosuppressant agent in solid organ transplantation; it frequently produces toxic metabolic effects, particularly of the most severe kind. Its use can cause hyperglycemia, hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia; thus, metabolic values should be monitored regularly to prevent these adverse events. We present the case of a woman with an intestinal neuroendocrine tumor who developed two episodes of acute pancreatitis, secondary to severe hypertriglyceridemia caused by everolimus. Read More

Spontaneus subscapular abscess. A clinical case.

An Sist Sanit Navar 2020 Apr 20;43(1):99-102. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Servicio de Cirugía Ortopédica y Traumatología Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra C/ Irunlarrea, 3 31008 Pamplona.

Infections of the subscapular space are very infrequent entities, which is why their diagnosis (for which it is crucial to carry out magnetic resonance imaging or, failing that, computerized tomography) can prove complicated. This difficulty in making the diagnosis conditions the speed of treatment (surgical draining that can be accompanied by antibiotherapy), which is crucial for the medium and long-term prognosis. We present the case of a patient who developed a spontaneous subscapular abscess that was drained using a delto-pectoral approach, with the subscapular space accessed via a medial route to the coracoids.

An Sist Sanit Navar 2019 Dec 5;42(3):345-349. Epub 2019 Dec 5.

Servicio de Medicina Intensiva. Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra. Pamplona..

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous disorder with systemic clinical manifestations. There are few publications about the renal effects of this disease, with renal vascular disease and adrenal tumors being the most frequent forms of renal involvement, while cases describing glomerular effects are exceptional. Despite the lack of published information, common molecular mechanisms in both NF-1 and nephrotic syndrome, involving the mTOR pathway, were suggested to explain a possible association between both pathologies.

Stress cardiomyopathy, or Takotsubo syndrome, is similar to that of an acute coronary syndrome, with electrocardiographic changes and an increase in troponin levels; however, coronary arteriography typically shows no obstructive lesions. One of the characteristic patterns are regional wall motion abnormalities identified by echocardiography. It has been described in association with thyroid disorders, although the causal mechanism is not clearly established. Read More

[Re-irradiation with SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy) for locoregional unresectable relapse of head and neck cancer: a case report].

An Sist Sanit Navar 2019 Dec 5;42(3):339-343. Epub 2019 Dec 5.

Servicio de Oncología Radioterápica. Complejo Hospitalario de Navarra. Pamplona..

Patients with an unresectable recurrence of head and neck carcinoma (HNC) have a poor prognosis, with limited treatment options. Recent technical advances allow radiotherapy (RT) to be handled with great precision, making it possible to re-irradiate recurrent tumors by means of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) with high doses of RT while protecting healthy tissues near the tumor. Although this technique has been used to irradiate different primary tumors and their metastases, SBRT in HNC has had a much slower evolution than in the mentioned locations. Read More

.

Aortic stenosis is one of the most common heart valve diseases, as well as one of the most common causes of heart failure in the elderly. Currently, there are no medical therapies to prevent or slow the progression of the disease. When symptoms develop alongside severe aortic stenosis, there is a poor prognosis unless aortic valve replacement is performed. Read More

[Spontaneuos pneumomediastinum secondary to cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome].

An Sist Sanit Navar 2019 Aug 23;42(2):227-230. Epub 2019 Aug 23.

Servicio de Urgencias. Hospital Universitario de Canarias. La Laguna. Tenerife..

Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome (CHS) is little known amongst clinicians and is characterised by abdominal pain and cyclical vomiting, after intense consumption of cannabis over several years. It does not respond to treatment with antiemetics, but does respond to showers in very hot water. We present the case of a 24-year-old patient whose antecedents included cannabis consumption since the age of 14 and an episode of spontaneous idiopathic pneumomediastinum (PM) the previous month, which presented an association of CHS and secondary pneumomediastinum with the intense, repeated vomiting of the CHS.

[Analysis of the convergent validity of the Spanish short version of the Minnesota Leisure Time Physical Activity Questionnaire (VREM) and the Spanish version of the International Physical Activity Questionnaire in elderly people (IPAQ-E)].

Facultad de Ciencias de la Educación y el Deporte. Universidad de Vigo. Campus A Xunqueira s/n 36004 Pontevedra.

Background: In our country the Spanish short version of the Minnesota Leisure Time Physical Activity Questionnaire (VREM) and the International Physical Activity Questionnaire in elderly people (IPAQ-E) are considered useful tools for estimating the amount of physical activity (PA) performed by the geriatric population. However, few studies have been carried out on their psychometric properties. Therefore, this research aims to provide information on their convergent validity by analysing the degree of association that both questionnaires show with physical fitness level. Read More
