#1
István Sejben, Zoltán Som, Gábor Cserni
Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease of unknown aetiology, which is characterized by bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy and pulmonary disease. Clinically detected cardiac involvement occurs in 5% of sarcoid patients, although cardiac manifestations are discovered in 25% of the cases at autopsy. Sarcoid heart disease frequently causes atrioventricular block. The authors present the case of a 44-year-old man with bradycardia. On admission, second degree Mobitz II, then third degree atrioventricular block was diagnosed...

The authors comparatively analysed the remote results of carotid endarterectomy and risk factors for unfavourable outcomes in patients with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). The outcomes of carotid endarterectomy were studied in a total of 168 patients, with the follow-up terms up to 8 years. Depending on the presence or absence of DM, the patients were divided into two groups. Group One comprised 79 patients with an atherosclerotic lesion of the internal carotid artery and accompanying DM, with Group Two consisting of 89 non-diabetic patients...

BACKGROUND: Extra corporeal life support (ECLS) is presently first line therapy for refractory cardiogenic shock. Mobile circulatory support teams implant ECLS or extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in patients in the hospital without circulatory support. These patients are then transported to specialized centers. Here we report a case of sending a mobile circulatory support team abroad, followed by air ambulance evacuation, which, to our knowledge, has never been used as part of medical assistance abroad...

Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries can be divided into two broad categories: those that alter myocardial perfusion and those that do not. In coronary anomalies not altering myocardial perfusion, the coronary arteries originate from the aorta, but their origins are in unusual positions. Although myocardial perfusion is normal, the angiographer may have trouble locating them. Patients with an anomalous left main coronary artery arising from the right sinus of Valsalva are presented. The diagnosis was made by coronary angiography, transesophageal echocardiography and multislice computed tomography (MSCT)...

Background. In-stent restenosis (ISR) is the gradual narrowing of the vessel lumen after coronary stent implantation due to the increase in vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) protein plays an important role in this process. Our aim was to analyze the association of single nucleotide polymorphisms of the VEGF gene (rs2010963 and rs6999447) with the occurrence of ISR after coronary artery bare metal stent (BMS) implantation. Methods. 205 patients with a history of BMS implantation and a repeated coronarography were prospectively enrolled...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TCMP) is characterized by transient and reversible left ventricular regional wall motion abnormalities triggered by acute and intense emotional or physical stress. We present a case of a 79 year old woman with a hypertensive crisis after microwave ablation (MWA) for metastatic liver lesions. Initial evaluation suggested an acute coronary syndrome with an ST segment elevation and with elevated serum troponin T. No associated chest pain or dyspnea was present. Further evaluation with ECG, echocardiography, coronarography with left ventricle angiogram and MRI was consistent with an apical ballooning syndrome...

Vasculitides, particularly those affecting small vessels, are known to complicate systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE); however, isolated venulitis of the mesenteric bed has rarely been reported. Here we relate the case of a 46-year-old woman with SLE who presented with acute abdominal pain due to artery thrombosis and extended splenic ischemia requiring splenectomy. The histological examination revealed diffuse venulitis in the absence of arterial vasculitis consistent with the definition of mesenteric inflammatory veno-occlusive disease (MIVOD)...

Hydrochlorothiazide became one of the most commonly prescribed first-line antihypertensive medication, though its use is often complicated with serious side-effects. A 66-year-old female patient with a history of hypertension had suffered a transient loss of consciousness, and referred to our cardiology unit with an ST-segment elevation and giant negative T-waves in V1-2 ECG leads, long QT-segment and elevated serum creatine-kinase (5392 U/L) and troponin I (4,357 ng/ml) levels. Acute myocardial infarction was not proven (later coronarography revealed preserved coronary circulation), but severe hyponatraemia and hypokalaemia was detected, explaining a possible symptomatic seizure, and which could be accounted for a 25 mg daily hydrochlorothiazide antihypertensive treatment and - as a precipitating insult - a one-week history of gastroenteritis...

BACKGROUND: In-stent restenosis occurs in 10-30% of patients following bare metal stent (BMS) implantation and has various risk factors. Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) is known to have effect on the progression of atherosclerosis. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) of the MBL2 gene intron 1 (codon 52, 54, 57) are known to modulate the bioavailability of the MBL protein. Our aim was to identify the association of these polymorphisms of the MBL gene in the occurrence of in-stent restenosis after coronary artery bare metal stent implantation...

CONTEXT: Cardiogenic shock (CS) still remains one of the main causes of death in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of midregional (MR)-proadrenomedullin in AMI complicated by CS. METHODS: Forty-seven consecutive patients were included in our prospective observational study. All patients underwent coronarography and successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Plasma levels of MR-proADM were measured by a immunofluorescence method...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) still remains to be one of the most important limiting factors for heart transplant recipients' long-term survival. The aim of our study was to identify the perioperative risk factors impacting the occurrence of CAV during the long-term follow-up. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed the data from 198 consecutive adult patients, who underwent heart transplantation between 2007 and 2012, in whom at least one routine coronarography (CAG) was performed...

The patient, a fifty nine year old male, was admitted to the ward with symptoms of inferior wall myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation combined with intermittent right side sight loss. Despite typical resting stenocardial chest pain, ST segment elevation in ECG, transient symptoms of acute heart failure and slightly elevated myocardial necrosis biomarkers, coronarography did not reveal obvious source of myocardial ischemia. Moreover, echocardiography did not confirm decreased ejection fraction. However further research confirmed critical stenosis of the left internal carotid artery and chronic occlusion of the right internal carotid artery...

INTRODUCTION: Sexual activity constitutes a significant aspect of health considerably influencing self-assessment of the quality of life. In Poland, data regarding the return in patients with ischaemic heart disease (IHD) to sexual activity are scarce and inadequate. AIM: The aim of this work is to analyse the return to sexual activity in patients with IHD after a hospitalisation related to invasive diagnostics of coronary arteries as well as to identify predisposing factors associated with cessation of sexual activity...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of catalase (CAT), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and glutathione (GSH) system on the range and severity of coronary artery lesions in patients with abnormal glucose metabolism. METHODS: This study included 766 patients with abnormal glucose metabolism. Levels of fasting blood lipids, blood glucose, CAT, SOD, GSH, glutathione reductase (GR), and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) were measured in all the patients. Coronarography was performed, and the degree of the lesions in each coronary artery was quantitatively analyzed using the Gensini scoring system...
