OBJECTIVE: Report initial experience with the Frozen Elephant Trunk technique. METHODS: From July 2009 to October 2013, Frozen Elephant Trunk technique was performed in 21 patients (66% male, mean age 56 ± 11 years). They had type A aortic dissection (acute 9.6%, chronic 57.3%), type B (14.3%, all chronic) and complex aneurysms (19%). It was 9.5% of reoperations and 38% of associated procedures (25.3% miocardial revascularization, 25.3% replacement of aortic valve and 49...

AIM: To critically discuss the use of tibolone (T), in light of a series of very recent double-blind placebo (PL) controlled trials (LISA, LIFT, OPAL, THEBES, LIBERATE) conducted worldwide in a large number of postmenopausal women (PMW). METHODS: The most relevant publications on T therapy in PMW were considered with emphasis on menopausal symptoms, quality of life, sexuality, bone, cardiovascular system (CVS) and oncologic risk. RESULTS: T significantly relieves climacteric symptoms and improves mood and sexual well-being (LISA)...

UNLABELLED: Chronic myocardial infarction represents one of the most important problems of actual clinical medicine because their incidence is growing especially at young adults (< 45 years) and their mortality with no treatment is high in first month after acute myocardial infarction (50%). When cardiovascular disease is associated with diabetes mellitus, evolution of patients is more serious. AIM: To compare the disease evolution for two groups of patients--one with patients who have purely chronic myocardial infarction and other with patients who have chronic myocardial infarction associated with glycoregulation disturbances (diabetes mellitus, impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose)...

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) - this natural death caused by cardiac reasons and which is characterized by sudden loss of consciousness within first hour after revealing of sharp clinical symptoms. A primary factor of SCD is not traumatic. It occurs suddenly and unexpectedly. The high risk of development of sudden cardiac death is basically associated with ventricular arrhythmias. Electrophysiological anomalies in cells lead to development of ventricular ectopic activity or ventricular tachycardia which comes to the end with fibrillation...

INTRODUCTION: According to the results of different investigations, the opinion that isolate of coagulase-negative staphylococci by bloodcultures represents the blood infection in 10-12% patient. The aim of the work was to determine the number of patients with blood infection-sepsa induced coagulase-negative staphylococci isolated by bloodcultures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The research was done at the Institute for Public Health in Nis. The basic group consisted of 56 patients and coagulase-negative staphylococci were segregated form their bloodcultures...

Gallstone ileus is a rare complication of gallstone disease, accounting for 1-4% of all bowel obstructions. The phisiopathology is related to the presence of a bilio-enteric fistula. Cholecistoenteric fistulae occur in fewer than 1% of patients with gallstone. We present the case of an 83-years-old woman, complaining of acute abdominal pain, vomiting and mechanical obstruction at admission. She reported a past history of hypertension, recent miocardial ischaemia, diverticular disease and cholelithiasis. A CT scan revealed aerobilia, gastric and duodenal dilatation and a gallstone impacted just beyond the duodeno-jejunal junction...

OBJECTIVE: A preliminary evaluation of the impact of a training program on pre-hospitalization care of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). DESIGN: A cross-sectional study. SETTING: Lleida Health Service area. PATIENTS: A total of 661 ACS cases were observed in the Intensive Medical Care Unit from January 1st 2002 to December 31st 2004. INTERVENTIONS: A training program for primary health care medical staff on the pre-hospitalization management of ACS from July 2003 to December 2006 in 29 health care centers was conducted...

Cardiogenic shock (CHC) associated to acute myocardial infarct has high mortality and their manifestations are heterogenous. In our institution historical mortality, was 98%, but with different methods of reperfusion, its reduced to 53%. In other hand, with opportune clinical stratification is useful to improve the treatment strategy. This stratification on basis in clinical signs: age, infarction location, cardiac frequency and systemic arterial pressure, and hemodynamical valuation with the use of right catheterism with quantification miocardial work parameters like "Cardiac power" that is the product of flow and arterial pressure and that is of utility to know the "Miocardial reserve"...

By devoting World Health Day 1992 to the theme of heart health, it is the aim of the World Health Organization to increase public awareness of the worldwide dimensions of cardiovascular diseases, and to sound an alarm against their spread. Cardiovascular diseases are diseases of the highest social and medical importance. They are taking about 12 millions lives annually. Many victims are under the age of 65 years. Fortunatelly, many of the diseases could be prevented or postponed to the older age, as 3/4 of the cases are results of inadequate attitudes, knowledge, habits and behaviour...

A large multicenter cohort study, the DAI study, is being performed on patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who are followed by diabetic care units in Italy, to study the prevalence and incidence of macrovascular complications. The reference population consists of all patients visited at the participating units in the period September 1998-June 1999. Patients were randomly chosen so as to create a sample representative of the diabetic population visited at the units. Overall, 201 Italian diabetic care units participated in the study and 19,570 patients were included in the study...

A 72-year-old man, smoker, with insuline-dependent diabetes and dislipemia underwent left pneumonectomy. Several episodes of intraoperative hemodynamic instability associated with electrocardiographic ST segment alterations were attributed to surgical manipulation; ischemia was not suspected. Cardiorespiratory failure, related to extensive anterior infarction, developed a few minutes after admission to the postoperative intensive care unit (PICU). Cardiopulmonary resuscitation and mechanical ventilation were required...

A decrease in sexual activity after an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) for both women and men has been reported with one study suggesting that this reduction in sexual activity may precede rather than proceed the AMI. The present study compared the sexual activity of women and men before AMI to the sexual activity of a normative community sample of women and men, to examine whether the above reduction in sexual activity is especially characteristic of women and men who later incur an AMI. This study also investigated the association between selected medical and sociodemographic variables and sexual inactivity of women and men before an AMI...

From october '76 to march '79 at the Clinica Chirurgica I of the University of Bologna 50 renal graft have been performed with living donor in 8 cases and with cadaver donor in 42. In the living donor group there was one death for rejection and sepsis. The remaining 7 patients are all alive with normal renal function. Among the 42 patients with cadaver donor 6 died: 3 early (one for gastric hemorrage, one for necrosis of the ascending colon, and one for rejection) and 3 late (two following many rejection episodes and one for miocardial infarction)...

Exercise electrocardiograms were done on one thousand patients referred to the laboratory of exercise tests for: suggestive symptoms of acute heart failure, old miocardial infarction abnormal resting ECG, or evaluation of coronary reserve. The average value of cardiac rate reached for the group, was close to 80%. The maximum exercise loads managed by the men were superior to those of the women, and in general those managed in the negative test were superior in relation to the positive tests. Of the one thousand cases, 20...

The phonomechanocardiographic parameters most closely associated with heart failure are reviewed and a critical judgement is made of the method. The conclusion is drawn that phonomechanocardiographic measurements help to establish approximate limits of functional normality in cases of moderate abnormality. When acute phonomechanocardiographic alterations appear following infection or toxic heart disease or the use of potentially cardiotoxic drugs, the diagnosis of miocarditis can be made on an objective basis...
