Introduction: Acute kidney injury (AKI) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) performed in cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) may complicate the postoperative course and has a negative impact on outcome. In some cases, postoperative AKI develops in spite of normal baseline creatinine concentration and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Aim: To examine whether there is any association between the preoperative blood morphology and incidence of post-operative AKI...

The first part of the review describes the basic aspects of interpreting myocardial perfusion defects in single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scintigraphy. It also presents indications for invasive diagnostics based on stress perfusion defects. This article provides basic information concerning the interpretation of gated SPECT imaging, including such parameters as left ventricular wall motion and thickening as well as left ventricular wall systolic and diastolic function. Gated examination combined with the assessment of myocardial perfusion reduces the rate of false positives results of myocardial perfusion scintigraphy in perfusion tests, additionally providing data on left ventricular systolic and diastolic function...

Cardiovascular diseases, including coronary artery disease (CAD), are the leading cause of death among women and men. Mortality among women is higher than in men. Women more often report atypical anginal symptoms. Non-invasive diagnostic testing of CAD is less sensitive and characteristic in women than in men. Coronary angiography and rewascularization of coronary arteries is less common in women. However, women, who undergo angiography have lower rates of obstructive CAD. The worse prognosis of CAD in women is associated with the fact that the onset of obstructive coronary artery disease in women occurs 7-10 years later than in men...

Introduction: Aortic valve reconstructions using geometric annuloplasty rings HAART 300/200 open new era in aortic valve surgery. The HAART technology resizes, reshapes, stabilizes and simplifies aortic valve repair. The HAART aortic repair rings are designed to be implanted directly into aortic annulus (under aortic valve leaflets). Aim: We present first in Poland 4 cases of aortic valve reconstructions using geometric annuloplasty rings HAART 300. Material and methods: Two patients had type IA aortic insufficiency (due to El-Khoury classification) - they were treated by HAART 300 ring insertion and ascending aorta prosthesis implantation...

Introduction: Significant impairment of left ventricular function causes low cardiac output syndrome in the immediate postoperative period in 3-14% of patients undergoing surgery, increasing the mortality 15-fold. Aim: To assess the use of levosimendan in patients undergoing cardiac surgery in 2016. Material and methods: The analysis included 14 patients: 3 (21.4%) women and 11 (78.6%) men aged 65.4 ±11.8 years. The mean value of left ventricular ejection fraction amounted to 20 ±6...

Introduction: Whether or not the source of aortic pathology is Marfan syndrome (MFS) or other processes leading to development of abdominal aorta aneurysms (AAA), the awareness of pathology may lead to an emotional upset and low assessment of satisfaction with life. Aim: To assess, in regard to MFS patients with aortic pathology and to abdominal aortic aneurysm patients: 1) whether or not self-efficacy (SE) and health locus of control (HLoC) affect the patients' satisfaction with life; 2) whether the two groups of patients differ in terms of mental dispositions...

Introduction: High pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) in orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT) candidates is a risk factor of right ventricle failure after the procedure. However, the increase of PVR may be a consequence of the life-threatening deterioration of the left ventricle function. The use of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) seems to be the best solution, but it is reimbursed only in active OHT candidates. Aim: We performed a retrospective analysis of MCS effectiveness in maintaining PVR at values accepted for OHT...

Introduction: Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) is a rare anomaly. The mechanisms and the time at which the abnormality develops are still unclear. The malformation is characterized by the presence of single large or multiple but smaller cysts. Aim: To present the experience of our medical centre, the Polish Mother's Memorial Hospital - Research Institute. Material and methods: We analysed the medical records of 32 neonates hospitalized in 2008-2017 at the Department of Paediatric Surgery and Urology ICZMP due to pre- or postnatally diagnosed congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation...

Introduction: Pectus excavatum repair (Nuss procedure) is a painful procedure requiring effective postoperative analgesia. Aim: To establish whether thoracic epidural analgesia with ropivacaine is non-inferior to epidural analgesia with bupivacaine following the Nuss procedure in children. Material and methods: The prospective, randomized, controlled, single blind study included 81 children. Computer-generated random numbers were used to allocate treatment...

Introduction: There are many diseases which, despite not being malignant, show high metabolic activity and cause false-positive results. Aim: To evaluate the results of positron emission tomography (PET) in patients who underwent resection after preliminary diagnosis of malignancy based on fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake value, in whom the lesions were later classified as pathologically benign. Material and methods: The analysis included the records of 106 (12...

REVIEW
Wojciech Rokicki, Marek Rokicki, Jacek Wojtacha, Mateusz K Rydel
The authors of the present report review the etiology and clinical symptoms of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) as well as diagnostic techniques (both radiological and biomarkers) used for its detection. Subsequently, they present methods of multimodal treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy) recommended by the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (IMIG). Finally, they discuss complications and long-term results associated with these methods of MPM treatment.
