Hydrocephalus and alterations in the dynamics of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) (Consolidated Line)

General aim: To study the pathophysiology of intracranial pressure (ICP) and alterations in CSF dynamics in patients with hydrocephalus and other intracranial pathologies.


Specific aims: 1) To gain greater insight into the physiopathology of normal pressure hydrocephalus and idiopathic intracranial hypertension (pseudotumor cerebri) and to study new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies; 2) To determine the biochemical alterations (neurotransmitters and neuropeptides) in these patients, as well as their role in cognitive function and sleep disturbances; and 3) To correlate cognitive deficit with morphological and functional alterations in different cerebral structures, such as the corpus callosum and subcortical white matter.

Malignant Middle Cerebral Artery Infarction (MMCAI) (Consolidated Line)

General aim: To expand on the physiopathology, metabolic alterations, and monitoring of patients with malignant MCA infarction.


Specific aims: 1) To gain greater insight into the physiopathology, metabolic alterations, and monitoring of patients with malignant middle cerebral artery infarction; 2) To optimize treatment through the use of novel techniques, such as moderate hypothermia and decompressive craniectomy;  3) To characterize the inflammatory response profile (cerebral and systemic) triggered by massive ischemic stroke; 4) To optimize the treatment of severe head injury and MMCAI using new therapeutic techniques such as the combination of moderate hypothermia and decompressive craniotomy, and 5) To study and evaluate the quality of life of patients who survive a malignant middle cerebral artery infarction (MMCAI).

Congenital malformations of the cranio-vertebral junction (Emerging line)

Aims:

1) To improve knowledge of the physiopathology of craniocervical malformations, particularly  Chiari Type I (MC-I), and quantify the clinical, social and occupational repercussions of this malformation;

2) To study the genetic bases of this malformation and its penetrance in family members;

3) To study sleep disturbances (particularly type and frequency of sleep apneas) associated with Chiari Type I malformations; and

4) Study the quality of life of patients with a craniocervical malformation without surgical treatment, as well as those with surgical treatment before and after surgery.

Neuro-oncology (Emerging line)

In this new line of translational research, we collaborate actively with the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO) lead by Dr. J. Baselga and especially with the "Gene Expression and Cancer" laboratory led by Dr. J. Seoane.


Aims: 1) To develop a patient registry, centralized in external servers, to study the epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment results of primary and secondary brain tumors (Gliomas and metastases); 2) To develop a methodology for studying quality of life and cost-effectiveness of surgery and certain treatments in patients with malignant CNS tumors;

3) To study the cost-effectiveness of cortical mapping in low-grade tumors removed by awake craniotomy; 4) To develop cell lines of glioma primary cultures and glioma stem cells for improving knowledge of route regulation at all levels, especially pre- and-post-transcriptional; and 5) To study potential therapeutic targets derived from knowledge of the factors involved in the regulation of neuro-oncogenesis in glial cell tumors.

Notícies relacionades

La nova eina permetrà millorar l'atenció als pacients i detectar complicacions de forma precoç, ja que, fins ara, l'hospital no disposava de cap formulari específic.

Entre els projectes es troben 12 investigacions on participen investigadors i investigadores de Vall d’Hebron.

Aquests resultats suposen un avenç no només per la salut dels pacients sinó també per al sistema sanitari i la salut pública, disminuint dràsticament el nombre de transfusions necessàries.
