OBJECTIVES: Prognosis of patients with anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from pulmonary artery has dramatically improved as a result of both, early diagnosis and improvements in surgical techniques. Post surgical complications are rare and most patients show quick improvement of the left ventricular performance after repair with complete functional recovery within one year after surgery. Exercise-induced electrocardiographic changes have been found in patients postoperatively and scars and perfusion deficits of the left ventricle may not be detected by standard echocardiographic evaluation...

Treatment options for patients with small upper aerodigestive tracts squamous cell carcinoma (T1, T2) with advanced neck disease (N2, N3) is a topic that generates controversy in terms of thereuptic stratagies. We present the retrospective analysis of 109 patients treated, between 1991 and 2008, by "Neck dissection first approach" for N2, N3 neck node, followed by external beam radiotherapy (RT) with or without chemotherapy for the operated neck and the primary, deemed radiocurable. 94 patients completed the planned treatment and formed the material for this study...

Primary lymphedema can be managed effectively as a form of chronic lymphedema by a sequenced and targeted treatment and management program based around a combination of Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy (DLT) with compression therapy, when the latter is desired as an adjunct to DLT. Treatment in the maintenance phase should include compression garments, self-management, including self-massage, meticulous personal hygiene and skin care, in addition to lymphtransport-promoting excercises and activities, and, if desired, pneumatic compression therapy applied in the home...

Primary lymphedema can be managed safely as one of the chronic lymphedemas by a proper combination of DLT with compression therapy. Treatment in the maintenance phase should include compression garments, self management including the compression therapy, self massage and meticulous personal hygiene and skin care in addition to lymph-transport promoting excercises. The management of primary lymphedema can be further improved with proper addition of surgical therapy either reconstructive or ablative. These two surgical therapies can be effective only when fully integrated with MLD-based DLT postoperatively...

Background. Since 1980's, shoulder arthroplasty has become more oftenly performed procedure, and for severe comminuted fractures of proximal humerus (fou r- fragmented fractures, according to Neer's classification) has become first - line therapeutic option. At the beginnig of 90's, contemporary prinicples of shoulder arthroplasty were introduced. It is assumed that 4 mechanical parameters, i.e. range of motion, joint stability, strengh and smoothness of prosthesis components contribute to shoulder function, and we sholud reach toward their reconstruction during surgical procedure...

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is often associated with pain, functional impairment and various degrees of disability. Physiotherapy in combination with both aerobic and strength training exercises have shown positive effects in both the pre-operative and post-operative period. At the initial stages of osteoarthritis, physical therapy and education can improve the functional outcome and the participation of patients in daily activities. In the case of OA progression and when an operation is the only effective treatment, physiotherapy is very useful in enhancing self-esteem and minimising depression and anxiety for the forthcoming surgery...

Report of the hand surgical treatment in two musicians, which enabled them to continue with their occupation. A young cellist was no longer able to play his instrument due to a painful scar at the pulp of his left index finger. The surgical treatment, performed only after a period of hesitation, consisted in scar excision and reconstruction of a normal pulp by a palmar advancement flap. Following a fracture of the distal radius, healed in 35 degrees dorsal angulation, a violinist was not able to flex his wrist maximally as required for playing in high octaves...
