BACKGROUND: Risk assessment is of particular importance for patients undergoing surgical interventions. Orthopedic procedures, especially total joint alloplasty are major procedure associated with high perioperative risk, as well as one of the highest rates of complications. The aim of the present study was to establish the prevalence of classical and non-classical cardiovascular risk factors in patients undergoing total hip or knee alloplasty. METHODS: The CRASH-JOINT (Cardiovascular Risk Assessment ScHeme in JOINT alloplasty) was a prospective, epidemiological study performed in consecutive patients scheduled for total joint (hip or knee) replacement surgery...

I BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common cancer in women and the third in men in Poland. The role of chemotherapy (CTX) depends on stage of CRC: adjuvant CTX is a standard treatment in stage III and should also be considered in stage II with risk factors. AIM: The aim of the paper was to assess the cardiovascular consequences of CTX in CRC enrolled to the ONCOECHO multicenter study (2012 - 2014). To identify potential cardiotoxicity we focused on myocardial function, heart rhythm and conduction disorders and adverse cardiovascular events...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Primary aldosteronism (PA) is one of the most common causes of secondary hypertension. Adrenal vein sampling (AVS) remains a "gold standard" procedure in differentiation between unilateral (adenoma) and bilateral (hyperplasia) disease. We present our single-center experience in establishing and implementation of the AVS procedure. METHODS: All patients had primary aldosteronism confirmed in salt-infusion test. Adrenal vein sampling was performed sequentially during a continuous intravenous infusion of cosyntropin and was preceded by multislice contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) examination of adrenal glands performed few weeks before AVS in majority of patients...

BACKGROUND: We hypothesized that small differences in the anatomy of the coronary venous tree might be one of the factors responsible for the differences in the respond for cardiac resynchronization depending on a patient's gender. METHODS: The cardiac computed tomography scans with retrospective gating were performed on 315 subjects (aged 58.3 ± 11.6; 117 women) according to the clinical criteria. The standard protocol for coronary arteries was used during scanning...

: Background Iron is presumed to play an important role in functioning of cardiomyocytes and skeletal myocytes. There is scarcity of direct data characterizing the cells functioning when exposed to iron depletion or iron overload in cellular environment. There is some clinical evidence demonstrating that iron deficiency has serious negative prognostic consequence in heart failure (HF) patients and its correction brought clinical benefit.

BACKGROUND: Presented pilot study was conducted in order to evaluate dynamic fluctuations of blood inflammation markers among patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) and coexistent periodontitis (PDis). AIM: Study hypothesis stated that elimination of chronic inflammation caused by PDis has a significant impact on inflammation markers and, secondarily, also on course and prognosis of CHF.

BACKGROUND: Heart failure is a growing cause of hospitalizations worldwide and despite significant progress in its treatment, it is still associated with high mortality. AIM: The aim of this study was to find factors predicting in-hospital death in acute decompensated heart failure by analysis of basic laboratory data and echocardiography, routinely collected on admission to the hospital. METHODS: To this single-centre retrospective study we involved 638 consecutive patients hospitalized in years 2007-2008 due to acute decompensated heart failure...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) thickness on left ventricular diastolic functions in patients with normal coronary arteries (NCA) proven by angiography. METHODS: We selected study patients who were referred to coronary angiography due to typical chest pain or atypical chest pain with a positive pre-test result for coronary artery disease. After coronary angiography, 85 patients had significant coronary lesion (≥50% stenosis) served as coronary artery disease (CAD) group, 82 patients had non-significant coronary lesion (<50% stenosis) and/or a coronary plaque served as non-significant CAD group and 83 patients had normal coronary arteries served as normal coronary artery (NCA) group...

BACKGROUND: Platelets' role in pathophysiology of acute coronary syndromes (ACS) is undeniable, but precise relationships between platelet activity and treatment outcomes are matter of continuant investigation. Among platelet indices, mean platelet volume (MPV) has proven to be valuable predicting factor in cardiac patients. However platelet distribution width (PDW) is reported to be more specific marker of platelet reactivity. Thus, application of PDW in risk stratification of ACS treatment is up-to-date subject of research...

BACKGROUND: In the elderly the most common cause of hospitalization and the leading cause of death is heart failure. AIM: The purpose was to determine prognostic factors in chronic heart failure (CHF) in octogenarians and nonagenarians. METHODS: The analysis included 197 consecutive patients older than 80 years old (mean age 83.63+3.01 years; 46.19% of men) hospitalized in 2010-2013 in the Department of Cardiology due to CHF. Sixty two parameters were investigated such as: age, gender, NYHA functional class, body mass index, blood pressure, other comorbidities, the parameters of the 12-lead resting ECG and the echocardiography, the results of basic laboratory tests and selected biomarkers, including N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), high-sensitive troponin T (hs-TnT), high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP)...

BACKGROUND: The management of patients with asymptomatic severe aortic stenosis (ASAS) is still under discussion. Therefore, it is advisable to search for the parameters of early damage to left ventricular function. AIM: The aim of the study was to assess exercise-induced changes in left ventricular global longitudinal strain (GLS) in ASAS. METHODS: The ASAS group consisted of 50 patients (26W/24M, aged 38.4±18.1) meeting the echocardiographic criteria of severe aortic stenosis (AVA<1cm², AVAI<0...

BACKGROUND: Platelets play a significant role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. In atherosclerotic plaques, the risk of plaque rupture is more crucial than the severity of stenosis they cause. Non-calcified carotid artery plaques are more unstable than calcified plaques, and they are associated with a higher risk of rupture, thromboembolism and consequently, stroke. AIM: Purpose of the present study is to compare calcified and non-calcified plaques that cause intermediate carotid artery stenosis with respect to mean platelet volume (MPV) and platelet distribution width (PDW)...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Artificial chordal implantation in order to repair flail or prolapse mitral valve leaflet requires open heart surgery and cardiopulmonary bypass. Transapical off-pump implantation of neochordae is a new surgical technique proposed to treat degenerative mitral valve regurgitation. The procedure is performed using the NeoChord DS1000 system (NeoChord, Inc., Eden Praire, MN), which facilitates both implantation and tension adjustment of the neochordae under transesophageal echocardiographic 2D and 3D guidance...

Arterial hypertension is one the most common disorder of the cardiovascular system. Throughout years of investigation, more and more effective substances were introduced to antihypertensive therapy, including newly developed therapeutical schemes. Despite such advancement in therapeutical strategy, a group of patients remains afflicted with resistant arterial hypertension and it seems resistant to antihypertensive medication even in maximum doses. In Poland the estimated number of patients with resistant arterial hypertension is between 12-13% of the total population treated for hypertension...
