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...

Introduction: Health-related quality of life (QoL) is an acknowledged index of treatment effectiveness. There are several methods of its evaluation which are predisposed to different risk of bias. Aim: To investigate the agreement between objective and subjective tools of QoL assessment in patients who underwent endoscopic atraumatic coronary artery bypass (EACAB) grafting. Material and methods: This prospective observational study covered 705 consecutive patients who underwent EACAB between April 1998 and December 2010...

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...

Del Nido cardioplegia is believed to be both clinically and economically efficient. The interest in this myocardial protection method has been continuously growing. However, the evidence is not clear. The article summarizes recent reports regarding del Nido cardioplegia.

Introduction: Observations of patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) indicate good correction results and long-term survival. Few papers have been published in which the quality of life (QoL) of this population has been assessed. Aim: To evaluate QoL in adults with repaired ToF.
. Material and methods: We included 39 patients with repaired ToF and 40 age- and sex-matched healthy volunteers. Information recorded included echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance, cardiopulmonary exercise test, and self-reported health-related QoL questionnaire (SF-36)...

Introduction: Posterolateral thoracotomy was the access of choice in surgical treatment of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) for many years before the introduction of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). The latter is thought to reduce postoperative pain and improve musculoskeletal system status. However, it carries a potential risk of conversion to thoracotomy. Aim: To evaluate the rate, reasons and outcomes of VATS conversion to thoracotomy in surgical PDA patients...

Introduction: There is a lot of discussion about the best surgical technique for tricuspid valve (TV) regurgitation in patients undergoing an operation for primary mitral valve disease. Aim: To review and compare our results and experiences regarding the two main surgical strategies: tricuspid valve annuloplasty with a prosthetic ring (RING group) and suture annuloplasty (De Vega group). Material and methods: We reviewed 570 patients who underwent TV surgery between 2000 and 2016 with either ring annuloplasty (RING group: n = 490 (85...

Introduction: Despite improvements in surgical management, sternal wound infection (SWI) following cardiac surgery remains a significant complication. Aim: To evaluate pathogens involved in SWI following median sternotomy. Material and methods: We enrolled 164 patients who experienced prolonged sternal wound healing following open-heart surgery. The inclusion criteria were as follows: prolonged sternal wound healing following cardiac surgery via median sternotomy and complete results of microbiological culture obtained from the sternal swab...

Introduction: Most recent studies tend to confirm the beneficial effect of thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) in cardiac surgery. Aim: To assess whether intensive care unit TEA has an influence on the perioperative course following low-risk coronary artery surgery. Material and methods: This prospective, randomized trial was performed in patients scheduled for low-risk coronary artery surgery. Eighty patients undergoing off-pump or on-pump coronary artery bypass surgery were prospectively randomized to receive either combined general and epidural anesthesia or general anesthesia only...

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...
