This article discusses the protocol for myocardial perfusion scintigraphy performed with single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Indications for SPECT are listed with consideration given to the results of the increasingly more common angio-CT examinations of the coronary arteries (multislice computed tomography). The paper also presents basic information about interpreting the results, including the scores of left ventricle myocardial perfusion using the 17-segment polar map, and explains the concept of total perfusion deficit...

Nearly 50 years after the pioneering procedure performed by Francis Fontan and Eugene Baudet, which has saved the lives of thousands of children, there are still more questions than answers regarding therapeutic management. The complex pathophysiology of Fontan circulation, the lack of clear guidelines, and the shift in the care of such patients from pediatric cardiological and cardiac surgical centers to ones dealing with adult patients, cause new threats. This paper outlines the fundamental issues related to the pathophysiology of Fontan circulation and reviews the literature on the methods of treating complications characteristic of this group of patients...

Introduction: Primary evaluation of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) traditionally relies on echocardiography and conventional cardiac angiography (CCA), both of which have potential limitations. Aim: To test the hypothesis that cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA) is useful in the diagnosis and management of these patients. Material and methods: The 3-year observational, analytical, retrospective, cohort study included a total of 111 tomographic studies of patients with congenital heart disease...

Introduction: Aortic valve replacement (AVR) with a mechanical prosthesis is not free from late complications. Aim: To evaluate the prevalence of subclinical hemolysis after AVR with On-X prostheses and assess its impact on long-term outcomes. Material and methods: The prospective study included 84 consecutive patients aged 58.3 ±10.3 years who underwent AVR. They were retrospectively split into group H (n = 12; 14.3%) with prosthesis-related subclinical hemolysis and a control group (C; n = 72; 85...

Introduction: Diabetes mellitus (DM) and heart failure (HF) are two common diseases that often co-exist. Aim: To explore clinical characteristics, management strategies and rates of 3-year mortality among diabetic and non-diabetic patients hospitalised in a highly specialized interventional cardiology centre. Material and methods: We used data from COMMIT-HF (COnteMporary Modalities In Treatment of Heart Failure), which is a single-centre, observational, prospective registry of patients with symptomatic chronic systolic HF (LVEF < 35%)...

Aim: Evaluation the results in patients from the religious community of Jehovah's Witness (JW) undergoing open heart surgery at our institution. Material and methods: Between September 2011 and March 2015, 21 patients with a religious background of the JW church underwent open heart surgery at our institution performed by the same surgical team. Mean age was 68.43 ±8.93 years. There were 13 (61.9%) female patients. Recombinant human erythropoietin was administered to every patient with a hemoglobin value < 12...

Aim: Investigation the frequency and contribution of coronary artery aneurysm/ectasia in addition to their correlation with coronary artery disease (CAD). Material and methods: We retrospectively evaluated the coronary angiography records of 6500 adult consecutive patients, and 418 of them were met inclusion criteria and used in the present study. The CAD was defined as the presence of angiographic coronary stenosis of > 50% of the luminal diameter in no less than one of the epicardial coronary arteries...

Introduction: Cardiac surgery and cardiac interventions are associated with the risk of iatrogenic complications, including hemothorax. Minimally invasive methods of evacuating hemothorax include video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). Aim: This paper presents this method and provides its detailed analysis. Material and methods: The VATS procedures were used to evacuate hemothorax in 8 patients (7 after cardiac surgery and 1 after a cardiac intervention)...

Aim: This study was designed to investigate the factors affecting the prognosis in neonates with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) who were treated in our clinic. These factors included prenatal lung-head ratio (LHR), prenatal stomach and liver presence in the thorax, blood gases in the first 24 h and the modified ventilation index (MVI). Material and methods: The study was carried out retrospectively in 30 neonates with prenatally diagnosed left CDH who were treated in our clinic between January 2007 and 2013...

REVIEW

The benefits of using acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) in the primary prophylaxis of cardiovascular diseases may only slightly exceed the risk of serious bleeding. This warrants the search for alternative, safer preparations with antiaggregatory properties, which could be used in patients burdened with cardiovascular risk factors. Antiaggregatory compounds identified in water-soluble tomato extract include nucleosides, flavonoids, and phenolic acids. The action of standardized tomato extract is multidirectional, reversible, and weaker in comparison to ASA...
