    Pharmacy Specialist, Pharmacy Department in Torrecárdenas Hospital, University of Granada, Spain

    In 2011, I started my residency as a Clinical Pharmacy Specialist at the Torrecárdenas Hospital Complex, Almería, Spain. It was at the end of 2012, when our research group was formed by the doctors: F. Dámaso Fernández Ginés, Manuel Cortiñas Sáenz, Ana Navajas-Gómez de Aranda, Carmen Fernández Sánchez and Francisco Sierra García.Our research group specialized in the field of topical instillations of sevoflurane in painful vascular ulcers, beginning our journey in early 2013, preparing reports for the approval of the Ethical Committee and the Pharmacy Commission, finally approved. Until then, we had a total of 57 patients recruited with great results in terms of pain management, reduction of the area of the ulcer (epithelial effect), infection management (microbicide) and reduction of morphine consumption. It was at the beginning of 2017, when we decided to treat the pathology of musculoskeletal and joint pain by applying sevoflurane on healthy skin, through a galenic composition optimised.
