Orbital tumours

A tumour is an abnormal growth of tissue. In the case of orbital tumours, this growth is located in the tissues around the eye, which may be muscles, bones, fat, the lacrimal gland, nerves and blood vessels. They are rare tumours of several different types that may appear at any age. Orbital tumours may be benign or malignant. Benign tumours may cause pain due to compressing or displacing the different structures in the eye socket. Malignant tumours, on the other hand, as well as spreading to neighbouring tissue, may produce metastasis in other unconnected organs or lymphatic nodules.

Why specialise at Vall d’Hebron?

  • Because we care for a high volume of patients, which enables residents to gain knowledge and experience.
  • Because we are a tertiary hospital with leading departments in the different areas that make up residents’ essential training.
  • Because you will have the opportunity to see complex pathologies and to use ground-breaking diagnostic methods and treatments.
  • Because our training programme provides different options to adapt to the personal initiative and vocation of each resident; from the most patient-facing roles to those more focused on research in collaboration with different laboratories from the Vall d’Hebron Research Institute; one of the most important in the country.
  • Because we have a demanding programme with all the necessary resources for professional advancement in academic neurosurgery and all its components.
  • Because our objective is to stimulate the personal growth of future neurosurgeons who wish to work in centres where research and education are not optional extras, but form an integral part of the department.

Healthcare activity in neurology combines writing medical histories, diagnostic data collection, correct use of complementary exploratory procedures, and accurate clinical and aetiologic diagnosis, as well as choosing appropriate palliative treatments. We also emphasise the role of the relationship between resident doctors and patients in the basic areas of Neurology.

A large number of medical conditions and neurological illnesses  can result in critical  emergency situations, such as strokes and lupus. With this in mind, from the second year the duty shifts in neurological emergencies become a key aspect of residents’ work, and are always carried out under supervision. Neurologists are also required to carry out a rotation in neurological outpatient care.

 Research studies  are part of the practical work that neurologists must deepen and develop, with particular emphasis  on ethical competence  when carrying out research.

Neuroscience research should be done under supervision of a tutor , and requires solid training in scientific methodology as well as in bioethics and scientific communication.

Why should I specialise at Vall d’Hebron?

  • Because  our expertise and high number of patients underscore the fact that we are a leading hospital for the treatment of neurological disorders.
  • Because we offer the chance to take part in applied research.
  • Because residents have the chance to work under supervision when treating complex neurological conditions, both on the wards and in critical cases in the Accident and Emergency Department.
  • Because residents are encouraged to attend conferences and training sessions to develop new approaches.
  • Because residents take part in initial and second visits in the Headache Unit in the Outpatient Clinic on a day to day basis.
  • Because duty shift handovers are carried out every day; case closure and mortality review sessions, neuroradiology and neuroscience sessions every week; magnetic resonance neuroscience sessions from the Research Institute and Radiology Department Units every fifteen days.

Strokes

Strokes are a medical condition caused by an alteration in blood circulation to the brain. This alteration is due to an artery becoming blocked (ischemic stroke) or the rupture of a blood vessel (haemorrhagic stroke), preventing blood from reaching the brain and therefore temporarily or permanently altering brain functions. When blood flow is impeded, the affected part of the brain does not get the nutrients and oxygen it needs. As a result, brain cells can die, causing severe after-effects.

For this reason, if a person is suspected of having a stroke, the Emergency Medical Service should be notified immediately by calling 112. Acting quickly is essential in order to minimise or eliminate possible after-effects.
