Giant splenic artery aneurysm is a rare condition that represents an eminent life threatening for the patient, requiring, therefore, urgent surgical correction. A 61-year-old woman, former smoker, hypertensive, hypercholesterolemic and multipara sought our service because of a large tumor in the mesogastrium, which was an abdominal ultrasound finding. Despite the size of the tumor, the patient was asymptomatic. The angiotomography and the magnetic resonance image of the abdomen were suggestive of giant splenic artery aneurysm with more than 10cm in diameter that was confirmed by an angiography...

OBJECTIVES: Stress perfusion myocardial scintigraphy (SPECT) is useful in silent ischemia detection in the group of the asymptomatic type 2. diabetic patients. In our paper we present the combinations of the parameters predictive for stress myocardial SPECT result. METHODS: We selected parameters (fibrinogen, micro/macroalbuminuria, ateroma in carotid artery bed) that were significantly associated with stress myocardial SPECT result. We analyzed the combinations of these parameters change and evaluated their significance for stress myocardial SPECT result prediction...

Fat mobilyzing activity of synthetic tetradecapeptide, which corresponds in 31--44 amino acid sequence of human growth hormone, is studied in vitro in human fat tissue. The peptide at concentrations of 3--33 microng/ml considerably stimulated lipolysis in subdermal fat tissue, omentum and shoulder ateroma. Minimal efficient peptide concentration was 3 microng/ml in most experiments, sometimes it was 0.3 microng/ml. Direct dependency between dose logarithm and lipolysis rate was observed at dose interval of 0...
