Long-term remission and recurrence rates after transsphenoidal surgery for cushing's disease

Moreno Paloma Moreno , Fernandez Julia Silva , Exposito Maria Rosa Alhambra , Moreno Maria angeles Galvez

Objective: Transsphenoidal surgery (TSS) presents the treatment of choice for Cushing’s disease (CD), 95% microadenomas. Remission and recurrence rates vary dependent on tumor size, extension, adenoma visibility on magnetic resonance imaging, and neurosurgical expertise. Remission rates in the postoperative vary between 55 and 85%, with a recurrence of up to 25%. The aim of this study was to describe the rate of remission and recurrence of CD in our midst after TSS, and c...

Adrenal venous sampling in patients with hyperaldosteronism

Rebollo-Roman Angel , Serrano Laguna Ma del Carmen , Perez-Montilla Maria-Eugenia , Moreno-Moreno Paloma , Moreno Maria Angeles Galvez

Objective: Adrenal venous sampling (AVP) is a reliable procedure to differentiate if in patients with primary aldosteronism (PA) aldosterone production is unilateral or bilateral and guide the treatment of these patients. Our objective was to describe their characteristics and the outcomes of the AVPs.Methods and patients: Observational longitudinal clinical study between July 2020 and September 2021 in patients who underwent AVP in our Hospital.<p c...

Effects of bariatric surgery on bone health

Exposito Maria Rosa Alhambra , Martin Ana Barrera , Jimenez Concepcion Munoz , Puerta Maria Jose Molina , Moreno Maria Angeles Galvez

Introduction: Bariatric surgery has important metabolic complications such as bone mass loss.Goal: To assess bone mineral density (BMD) after Roux-en-Y gastric by-pass (RYGB) in patients under standard calcium and vitamin D supplementation.Method: In patients with morbid obesity submitted to RYGB, we measured BMD with a dual X-ray densitometer. Using World Health Organization (WHO) criteria’s, values were compared with young c...

Follicular lesion of undetermined thyroid significance: therapeutic approach to the diagnosis of bethesda 3

Martin Ana Barrera , Exposito Maria Rosa Alhambra , Roman Angel Rebollo , Azpilcueta Pedro Segui , Moreno Maria Angeles Galvez

Introduction: Thyroid nodules are very common in the general population (20–75% ultrasound). There are clinical management criteria established by international societies and standardized cytological diagnostic criteria (Bethesda). However, there is still uncertainty in the management of category 3 (follicular lesion of undetermined significance). Objectives: To evaluate the clinical attitude to the cytological diagnosis of Bethesda category 3 (B3) in thyroid fine-needle ...

Could statin modify molecular phenotype of pituitary growth hormone-secreting tumors?

Exposito Maria Rosa Alhambra , Moreno Paloma Moreno , Jimenez Concepcion Munoz , Moreno Maria Angeles Galvez , Huertas Raul Luque

Background: Acromegaly is the consequence of excessive growth hormone (GH) secretion, usually produced by a pituitary adenoma. In the last years, statins have been implicated in the response to treatment of patients with acromegaly. Although this fact is not very clear.Objective: To analyze whether pretreatment with statins modifies the adenoma molecular phenotype of the acromegalic patients and how this changes could help to influence the response to tr...

Diagnosis of endogenous hyperinsulinism through arterial calcium stimulation with hepatic venous sampling

Moreno Paloma Moreno , Exposito Maria Rosa Alhambra , Tendero Luis Zurera , Ortega Rafael Palomares , Moreno Maria Angeles Galvez , Lopez Pedro Benito

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the utility of arterial calcium stimulation with hepatic venous sampling (ASVS) in the localization of tumors in patients with endogenous hyperinsulinism not detected with other methods.Patients and methods: We performed a retrospective study of 30 patients admitted to our hospital for hypoglycemia who underwent ASVS because the source of hyperinsulinism was not clearly identified by other imaging techniques...
