Ischemic heart disease is a major cause of death and disabilities worldwide. Unfortunately, not all patients are suitable for direct revascularization. Cell-based therapies may be alternative options because of their potential to promote neovascularisation and endothelial repair, improving myocardial perfusion. The success of cell-based therapies depends on the type of implanted stem cells, delivery method and underlying disease. Several different cell populations including bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (MNCs), mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs), CD34+, CD133+, endothelial progenitor cells, adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (ASCs) and stem cells from placenta and umbilical cord have been investigated...

Surgical treatment of severe aortic stenosis offers good early and long-term results, even in elderly patients. Despite the implementation of percutaneous methods for the very high-risk group, surgical valve replacement remains the gold standard. The advanced age of patients should not be the only indicator limiting the possibility of surgery. In this review we present the most important information on the results of aortic stenosis surgical treatment in the groups of older patients. New methods such as percutaneous and minimally invasive methods of surgery are also discussed...

Heart transplantation (HT) is the treatment of choice for patients with advanced heart failure (HF) who remain symptomatic despite optimal medical therapy. Due to the shortage of organs for transplantation and constantly increasing number of patients placed on waiting lists, accurate risk stratification is a crucial element of management in this population. Prognostic scales allow one to evaluate the patient prognosis, estimate the potential benefits of therapy and identify those patients most likely to benefit from advanced methods of treatment...

Tietze's syndrome is a benign, self-limiting arthropathy, without purulent character. The disease most often involves articulations: sternocostal, sternoclavicular, or costochondral joints. The characteristic symptoms are tenderness, pain and edema involving one of the aforementioned joints on one side. Diagnosis of Tietze's syndrome is based on physical examination (increase of palpation tenderness in the affected joint), laboratory tests (increase of inflammatory parameters) and imaging studies (USG, MRI)...

Obesity poses an increasing problem in patients with end-stage heart failure (HF). The most commonly used indicator of obesity is body mass index. The value of this parameter is widely taken into consideration when selecting the best way of treatment for patients with advanced HF. The aim of this paper is to outline the recent knowledge about obesity in the abovementioned group of patients.

Introduction: Use of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) insufflation (CDI) on the surgical field during heart surgery has become widespread, and in some units routine. Aim: To assess the effects of CDI on endothelial dysfunction in a carotid artery model in rabbits. Material and methods: Twelve randomly selected rabbits were divided into two groups. Right carotid arteries of the animals were transected and sutured with running suture technique. Then, 1 l/min CO2 insufflation was initiated with a 45° angle...

Introduction: Primary pulmonary sarcoma (PPS) is a rare type of non-epithelial malignant tumour of the lungs. Lung sarcomas are usually of metastatic character, originating from the primary tumour located in another organ. Pathomorphological diagnosis is difficult and therefore definitive diagnosis is usually determined after surgical treatment. Five-year survival of radical operated patients is 42-69%. Aim: To evaluate prognostic factors in PPS. Material and methods: Twenty-two patients who underwent surgical treatment between 1994 and 2009 were analysed...

Introduction: Heart transplant is an accepted treatment modality in end-stage heart failure. The graft coronary artery vasculopathy is a main concern to explain the heterogeneity of the rejection process according to the gender of the donor and recipient. Aim: To assess the severity and type of mechanisms leading to failure of the graft. Material and methods: Experimental allogenic heart transplantation in the abdomen was performed on Wistar rats depending on the gender of the donor and recipient (F - female; M - male) in four groups (FF, FM, MM MF)...

Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the metabolic response in the early postoperative period after radical resection of stage I and II oesophageal cancer applying a minimally invasive procedure and an open procedure involving classical laparotomy and thoracotomy. Material and methods: Serum concentrations of interleukin 6 (IL-6), procalcitonin (PCT), C-reactive protein (CRP), tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and total serum protein (TP) and leukocyte count (WBC) in blood collected on the day of surgery prior to the procedure (day 0) and on days 1, 2 and 7 after the surgery were measured in two groups of patients undergoing oesophageal resection due to cancer: applying a minimally invasive procedure involving laparoscopy and videothoracoscopy (group A) and applying a classical procedure involving full opening of the chest and abdominal cavity (group B)...

Introduction: Left atrial appendage occlusion procedure (LAAO) became an alternative method for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients with contraindication or intolerance for oral anticoagulation therapy. However, LAA anatomy is complex with several different types of LAA morphology. Therefore matching the correct size of a delivery device to LAA morphology is difficult. In such circumstances, the 3D-printed model of LAA closure may be useful for preoperative planning which increases the efficacy of LAAO procedure...

This publication is a summary of the multidirectional effects of aspirin and its role in modern medicine. The history of aspirin, or acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), and its use dates back to ancient times, although the substance in its pure form has been produced and sold since 1899. Initially it was used for its antipyretic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory effects. Over the years many other benefits associated with the administration of ASA have been revealed. The mechanism of aspirin's action was discovered thanks to the British pharmacologist and Nobel Prize winner Sir John Vane...

Lung cancer is the main cause of cancer-related deaths in Poland. Epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) are a new group of agents for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Determining the predictive value of activating mutations in the EGFR and ROS-1 genes and ALK rearrangement in non-small-cell lung cancer has enabled the identification of patients likely to achieve true clinical benefits. EGFR-TKIs may produce objective response in more than 60% of patients and prolong progression-free survival to 10 months in mutation-positive patients...
