From Spanish parents
Authored works on physical medicine and vascular physiology

Described a new heart law

On the relationship between end systolic volume and ventricular mechanical impulse. A new law of the heart. Acta Physiol. Latinoam. 8, 1958 

With A.C. Esponda & A. Asplando. On a new law of the heart. Ann. Fac. Med. Montevideo 44, 1959

Authored the first study about intra-abdominal pressure in human (1947)

Important studies on venous pressure in human

First to show clearly the abdomen behaves as a fluid-filled container with a flexible anterior abdominal wall (1947)

Suggested that venous collapse is a hydrostatic analogy of a waterfall (1954)
