In this report, we present the third case in the literature with CRVO after cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and the first case after CABG. CASE REPORT: A 59-year-old male patient complaining of chest pain was admitted to our hospital. The patient underwent an elective coronary angiography and was diagnosed with three-vessel coronary artery disease...

OBJECTIVE: Extravasation of intravenously infused vesicant solutions is a common problem in medical practice, which can lead to severe and progressive tissue dysfunction, ranging from persistent tissue oedema and fibrosis to delayed tissue necrosis. Acyclovir is a known vesicant medication administrated in paediatric patients, which appears to irritate venous and soft tissue if extravasated. CASE REPORT: We present the first case involving the extravasation of intravenously infused acyclovir in a female adolescent patient, which caused tissue necrosis and left behind a residual scar lesion...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to test the association of both the baseline values and post-procedural variations of urinary and serum Neutrophil Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) and Cystatin C (CysC) with contrast induced nephropathy (CIN) occurrence in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary invasive procedures (PCIP), and compare them to serum creatinine and the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). METHODS: In 43 patients admitted to our Cardiac Step-Down Unit and submitted to PCIP, we measured serum creatinine and eGFR as the standard markers for CIN diagnosis, and compared them to both serum and urinary NGAL as well as serum CysC, assessed before and 4 hours after PCIP...

This study aims to present evidence of censorship during World War II by the Independent State of Croatia of one of its public health officials, Dr. Stanko Sielski who was a physician trained in epidemiology and public health. During World War II, he directed the Institute for Combating Endemic Syphilis in the Bosnian town Banja Luka. The staff under his direction consisted solely of Jewish physicians. We analyzed two groups of envelopes either sent by or to Dr. Stanko Sielski during the War and found evidence of censorship only in communications with a Jewish physician dated towards the end of the War...

OBJECTIVE: In the current study a brief review is presented of the coracobrachialis muscle's morphological variability, action, embryological development and clinical significance. CASE REPORT: We report a case of a left-sided coracobrachialis muscle consisting of two bellies. The deep belly inserts into the usual site in the middle area of the anteromedial aspect of the left humerus, whereas the superficial belly inserts through a muscular slip into the brachial fascia and the medial intermuscular septum, forming a musculo-aponeurotic tunnel in the middle region of the left arm, for the passage of the median nerve, brachial artery and veins, medial antebrachial cutaneous nerve and ulnar nerve...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this report is to emphasize the importance of thrombolytic therapy in selected patients, such as those with congenital heart defects in whom a coronary artery anomaly can be observed. CASE REPORT: We present here a 63 year-old female patient who was admitted to our emergency department with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction and a history of a congenital heart defect. We treated the patient successfully with thrombolytic therapy instead of primary percutaneous intervention, because of the suspicion of a coronary artery anomaly...

The aim of this essay is to present the definition and principles of personalized or precision medicine, the perspective and barriers to its development and clinical application. The implementation of precision medicine in health care requires the coordinated efforts of all health care stakeholders (the biomedical community, government, regulatory bodies, patients' groups). Particularly, translational research with the integration of genomic and comprehensive data from all levels of the organism ("big data"), development of bioinformatics platforms enabling network analysis of disease etiopathogenesis, development of a legislative framework for handling personal data, and new paradigms of medical education are necessary for successful application of the concept of precision medicine in health care...
