JAMES PITA, Alberto  y  MORALES NAVARRO, Denia. Doctor Ana Larralde Pineda, an example to our profession. Rev Cubana Estomatol [online]. 2013, vol.50, n.1, pp. 119-124. ISSN 0034-7507.

Women play a valuable role in maxillofacial surgery. A clear example is Doctor Ana Larralde Pineda, the first Cuban female maxillofacial surgeon. The purpose of this paper is to pay tribute to this outstanding professional and convey her imperishable example to the new generations of maxillofacial specialists and dental professionals at large. A historical study was conducted to gather the most general biographical information about the professor. Open interviews were carried out. Interviewees were informed of the authors' purpose and intention. All gave their consent to be interviewed. A bibliographic review was conducted based on Scielo Cuba database, the printed press and the archives of the Cuban Society of Maxillofacial Surgery. Doctor Ana Larralde Pineda was always able to combine her professional, teaching and personal responsibilities with her family life, and paved the way for other women to join this challenging medical specialty in which great sacrifice and vocation are required from its members, especially the female ones.
