[The effect of age on the prognosis of patients with traumatic brain injury who undergo a craniotomy: analysis of a surgical series].
Abstract INTRODUCTION: In our setting, the ageing of the population has led to management of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the later stages of life becoming an increasingly frequent problem. AIM: To evaluate the association between age and the functional and survival prognosis of patients who have undergone surgery due to TBI. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of a series of 404 patients submitted to surgery between the years 2000 and 2015: 144 youngsters (12-44 years), 77 adults (45-64 years), 148 geriatric patients (65-79 years) and 26 'super geriatric' patients (> 80 yea...

[Epidemiology of Parkinson's disease in Spain and its contextualisation in the world].
CONCLUSIONS: Its prevalence and incidence vary greatly around the world. In general, prevalence is higher in Europe and the United States than in other countries and is relatively uniform, fluctuating over a range that is not very noteworthy. In Asian, Latin American and African countries it is lower, especially in this last continent. These differences could be partly due to the specific factors of the population studied (that is to say, higher mortality rate due to lower economic resources). The most firmly established risk factors are ageing and being male. PMID: 29435969 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Revista de Neurologia)

CONCLUSIONS: Bilateral DBS in two unilateral stages was an effective option with few complications in our series of patients with IPD. 10% of the patients did not require contralateral electrodes. It would be necessary to conduct a randomised study in patients who underwent bilateral surgery in one and two stages in order to confirm these results.

CONCLUSIONS: Tuberculosis of the central nervous system is an entity of high incidence in developing countries, and intradural extramedullary tuberculoma should be included in the differential diagnosis of expansive spinal cord injuries, especially if the patient is young and there is a history of pulmonary tuberculosis or tuberculous meningitis. It is also important to take it into account as part of a paradoxical reaction after the initiation of specific treatment. Although surgical resection improves compressive medullary symptoms, medical therapy remains the mainstay in the treatment of tuberculomas. PMID: 2925133...

[Rituximab: its efficacy, effectiveness and safety in the treatment of multiple sclerosis].
CONCLUSIONS: In all of the studies reviewed, rituximab demonstrated a consistent benefit in controlling inflammatory activity, both clinically, reducing the incidence of relapses, and radiologically, avoiding the appearance of new and/or active lesions. On the contrary, with regards to the progression of disability, its effect is more controversial. Safety profile appears acceptable. Rituximab seems to be an effective and safe drug in the treatment of MS. PMID: 29251340 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Revista de Neurologia)

[Direct current electrical stimulation in the treatment of aphasia].
CONCLUSIONS: These studies suggest that, when it is used in conjunction with speech therapy, transcranial direct current electrical stimulation is effective in the treatment of aphasia. In addition, its benefits are observed when a minimum of five sessions with intensities higher than 1 mA, stimulating perilesional areas, and in those patients with fluent aphasias. However, the reviewed studies also suggest that this technique is not a substitutive of speech therapy, but a way to prime the brain to it.

[Effects of cocaine on prepulse inhibition of the startle response].
CONCLUSIONS: Cocaine alters PPI through its action on the dopaminergic system. Acute exposure of cocaine decreases PPI by increasing dopamine, while with chronic use, depending on withdrawal time, PPI can be restored. However, the effects of cocaine on PPI appear to depend on the baseline levels of PPI shown by the individual. Thus, since a deficit in PPI has been associated with a greater vulnerability to developing mental pathologies such as schizophrenia, PPI level in subjects could be considered as a biomarker of psychiatric vulnerability. Therefore, a better understanding of the effect of drugs such as cocaine on PPI ...
