EP had that resolve a serious obstruction of the aortic valve. It is the first operation of its kind made in Catalonia. The child was born with two well developed ventricles and a disease with favourable prognosis. Doctors of the Hospital Clinic and Sant Joan de Deu de Barcelona have intervened successfully to a fetus inside the mother’s womb to solve a serious obstruction of the aortic valve, which endangered his life through a catheterization. According to hospital sources, it’s the first operation of its kind carried out in Catalonia, a pathology that occurs in one of every 5,000 fetuses and which leads to his death in the womb or a life with heart complications and a very low life expectancy in the majority of cases.
The fetus, of 26 weeks of gestation, suffered a critical aortic stenosis which prevented the adequate development of the left ventricle of the heart and that was detected through an ultrasound. The intervention consisted in practice of a catheterization on the fetus inside the womb of the mother. Specialists anestesiaron the fetus, was placed in a suitable position and went through the abdominal wall of the mother until reaching the patient’s heart with a needle. The cardiologist introduced a catheter with a balloon which swelled up in the blocked aortic valve point to unblock it, preventing the atrophy that would have suffered the heart and favoring the normal growth of the left ventricle during pregnancy. The baby is already seven months the director of the area of the heart of the Hospital of Sant Joan de Deu, Jose Caffarena, explained the intervention involves a rescue of a practically lost which had been born with a nearly useless left ventricle and heart that had been devoted to the child to a pathology of high gravity. According to Caffarena, the child has been born with two well developed ventricles and a disease that needed to be treated, has a prognosis favorable and with a quality of life similar to that of the normal population.
The baby, named David and has currently seven months, was born at term and spent a month in the unit of neonates of Sant Joan de Deu where underwent another intervention, and currently is a child with a heart defect, but it can make a normal life, said Carlos Mortera, cardiologist at the Hospital of Sant Joan de Deu. Until recently, fetuses that presented a serious obstruction of the aortic valve could not be operated and parents only offered the option to terminate the pregnancy or an expectation of post-natal life very hard, with a significant risk of death, poor quality of life and many sequels, according to Dr. Josep Maria Martinez, of the Hospital Clinic.

The agency tries to then eliminate them through the kidney, and may produce diarrhea, kidney failure, and even the death. How arrives toxin of this bacterium to humans? Usually come from remains of contaminated animals, fecal waters of animals, or you can be found in the treatments of the meat if not done with sufficient hygiene, responds this researcher. The vegetable that spread with this toxin makes it by contact: it is surprising that once reaches the surface of the plant, attaches to your cells and is very difficult to dislodge it from there, it’s a strong toxin, describes Vicente. Are antibiotics effective to combat this Toxin? Their cells are more complex that the toxins that cause pneumonia, for example, still less effective results. The problem is that drugs that are most useful for treating the e.
Coli, some toxins with much resistance, induce the production of still more toxins into the body, becoming counterproductive, indicates Vicente. What is the origin of the contamination? This is one of the key issues that are investigating, although the origin of three of the infected cucumbers was Spanish, it is not proven that has been in Spain where the cucumbers have been contaminated with the bacterium e. Coli. For its part, the Ministry of health emphasizes that although cucumbers are of Spanish production, it is necessary further research in order to find out throughout the entire chain in which phase has produced bacterial contamination. Miguel Vicente, researcher at the CSIC, the view that is easy to learn, though it takes time. Genetic identification techniques are so good today that you can determine what culture they come from cucumbers by comparing their DNA, he adds. There are control systems in greenhouses where they come from cucumbers? 13 Analyzed greenhouses and which come from lots of cucumbers affected by the bacteria have some control, such as integrated production or biological control systems.
Lawyer Jordi Palou, representative of the nine Spanish victims whose killings in Rwanda and Congo investigating judge Andreu, believes that the Rwandan travelled convinced that was not going to pass anything, given the background. A week ago, however, they jumped the alerts and the Audiencia Nacional alerted Palou, among others, the casual detention of this member of the Rwandan Patriotic Army (APR), led by Ruanda President Paul Kagame. Extradition judge Andreu and Interpol Spain have already confirmed the identity of the detainee and now expect to United States to deliver it to the Spanish authorities in order to begin the extradition process, which would have to apply, at the request of the magistrate, the Council of Ministers, and placed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs contacting the U.S. State Department. Palou believes that the Spanish Government will do the necessary formalities, since it is a subject that makes direct rrencia to the death of three Spanish citizens and because Majyambere was a hierarchical bottom of Kayumba Nyamwasa, on which South Africa still does not give news to day today. There is no term for United States arises though, if it does not, Palou explains that both the families of the victims and complainants in the process, the International Forum for truth and justice in the Great Lakes of Africa, will proceed to formally ask the Embassy of EE UU in Spain a response and encourage the Congress of deputies to ask for explanations. Who is Justus Majyambere? Captain Justus Majyambere in 1997 was a 408 of the Rwandan Patriotic Army Brigade intelligence officer, according to the indictment from judge Andreu. A protected witness stated during the investigation carried out by the judge that the military headed a group of rapid intervention and planned operations strategy that gave rise to the systematic killings of thousands civilian hutus in the Rwandan region of Ruhengeri and its surroundings (Gisenyi and Cyangugu).
The three aid workers of doctors of the world, M Flors Sirera, Manuel Madarazo and Luis Valtuena, knew the massacres by the information that you provided them with a witness and they themselves to render medical aid. Since that time, became an obstacle to the plans of the APR, which was proposed, according to the auto, forcing the abandonment of NGOs and other international observers in the northeast of Rwanda as well as the border area with the then Zaire to continue attacks in the current Congo and also proceed to the pillaging of resources such as Coltan. The decision to assassinate the Spaniards took it four military, including Kayumba Nyamwasa, and put it into practice, by appointing executors, two others, including Justus Majyambere. Conducted, in addition, an attack cascade to three NGOs to conceal the killings and also to terrorize the population and expatriates in general. After that, all the organizations and United Nations offices retreated towards Kigali, the Rwandan capital. Source of the news: EE UU keeps detained a Rwandan military claimed by killing three Spanish
