#1
Piotr Żuk, Paweł Żuk
The authors describe the problems of women in Poland, who have limited access to abortion, in vitro fertilization procedures and prenatal tests. The current situation stems from ideological pressure which affects women's health issues. This is part of a broader syndrome of the conservative approach to women's health in Eastern Europe, as well as the factor that strengthens the extreme right in Europe. As women's sexual health is demonized, women less often undergo preventive examinations. Making the debate about health more rational requires radical socio-cultural changes in this part of the world...

The Zika virus is a flavivirus spread by mosquitoes. Its primary vectors are the Aedes aegypti and the Aedes albopictus. Before 2007 it sporadically caused benign morbidity. Since 2015, it started spreading "explosively" in America, especially in Brazil. In August 2016 they reported cases from New York and Poland, too. Most of the infections don't produce any symptoms, but can cause grave complications. The most important lesion is microcephalia that forms in fetuses. Microcephalia's most serious consequence is mental retardation, which puts great burden on both the family and the society...

It is well known that founder mutations associated with cancer risk have useful implications for molecular diagnostics. We report the presence of a founder mutation in EPCAM involved in the etiology of Lynch syndrome (LS). The mutation extends nearly 8,7 kb (c.858 + 2478_*4507del) and is shared by eight Polish families. Family members suffered almost exclusively from colorectal cancer, however, pancreatic and gastric cancers were also apparent. Next to mutations c. 2041G>A in MLH1 gene and c.942+3A>T in MSH2, the deletion mutation encompassing EPCAM is one of the most common causative changes responsible for LS in Poland...

Moebius syndrome is characterized by congenital unilateral or bilateral facial and abducens nerve palsies (sixth and seventh cranial nerves) causing facial weakness, feeding difficulties, and restricted ocular movements. Abnormalities of the chest wall such as Poland anomaly and variable limb defects are frequently associated with this syndrome. Most cases are isolated; however, rare families with autosomal dominant transmission with incomplete penetrance and variable expressivity have been described. The genetic basis of this condition remains unknown...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in developed countries, including Poland. Antithrombotic drugs play a crucial role in the management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS). Recent clinical trials have demonstrated the efficacy and safety profiles of new antiplatelet and anticoagulant agents, which may be used as add-on therapy or replacements for older drugs. The EPICOR: (long-t E: rm follow-u P: of antithrombotic management patterns I: n acute COR: onary syndrome patients) is a prospective international observational study (NCT01171404) designed to describe the use of antithrombotic management strategies for the treatment of ACS during the acute phase and over a follow-up period of up to 2 years from the index event...

Fossilized soft tissues, occasionally found together with skeletal remains, provide insights to the physiology and functional morphology of extinct organisms. Herein, we present unusual fossilized structures from the cortical region of bone identified in isolated skeletal remains of Middle Triassic nothosaurs from Upper Silesia, Poland. The ribbed or annuli-shaped structures have been found in a sample of partially demineralized coracoid and are interpreted as either giant red blood cells or as blood vessel walls...

It is estimated that around 15 million people survived polio infection worldwide since early twentieth century. In 1950 effective vaccination was used for first time. Since that time number of affected people decreased. The last epidemic of Haine-Medine disease in Poland was in 1950s. Another rare cases of infections were observed till 1970s. About at least 15 years after polio virus infection, slowly progressive muscle limbs paresis with muscle atrophy, joints pain, paresthesia were observed in polio survivors...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) constitutes the most prevalent arrhythmia affecting up-to 2% percent of general population. Apart from well-established risk factors which increase the odds for the development of AF e.g. age or arterial hypertension, recent analyses indicated that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may independently, negatively modify arrhythmia occurrence profile. Concurrently, erectile dysfunction (ED) is commonly neglected, potent marker of cardiovascular risk which considerably worsens men's psychological state...

Psychologists emphasize that people employed in social service organizations are vulnerable to chronic stress and burnout syndrome caused by a close and unsatisfied interpersonal relationship. However, emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a feeling of diminished personal accomplishment can be attributed to other external factors. One of them is poor living and occupational conditions. According to a report by OECD, the healthcare system in Poland is the worst among the member countries. The aim of the present study was to define the relationship between occupational burnout and the rating of the Polish healthcare system among the medical staff...
