This study was designed to determine the effect of feeding female rats with low-calcium diet containing one of three fructan sources (Jerusalem artichoke, yacon, Beneo Orafti Synergy1), on selected bone parameters. Growing Wistar rats were fed modified AIN-93 G diet enriched in fructan sources (8%), added alone or as a strawberry sorbet ingredient. Two of eight groups were a validation model, where the positive control group was fed with recommended calcium dose in the diet (RCD), and negative one - with low calcium diet (LCD)...

BACKGROUND: Distal femoral fractures constitute a type of lower limb injuries that is rare and difficult to treat. Despite advances in surgical technique and development of implants used for internal fixation of fracture fragments, the treatment continues to result in numerous complications. The Ilizarov External Fixator reduces the risk of complications and allows for bone union. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Six men with distal femoral fractures resulting from multisite and multiorgan injuries were treated at the Department of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Traumatology of the Medical Uni-versity of Warsaw between 2008 and 2016...

PURPOSE: Coronary artery perforation (CAP) is a complication of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs). Hydrophilic guide-wires have been shown to increase the probability of CAP. Depending on the size of perforations we adopt different treatments. CASE: We present the case of a 73-year old male with coronary artery disease and severe aortic valve stenosis. The patient was in the process of qualifying for a transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Unfortunately, CAP of the first diagonal branch of the LAD occurred during PCI...

INTRODUCTION: Recent efforts to increase CRT response by multiSPOT pacing (MSP) from multiple bipols on the same left ventricular lead are still inconclusive. AIM: The Left Ventricular (LV) MultiSPOTpacing for CRT (iSPOT) study compared the acute hemodynamic response of MSP pacing by using 3 electrodes on a quadripolar lead compared with conventional biventricular pacing (BiV). METHODS: Patients with left bundle branch block (LBBB) underwent an acute hemodynamic study to determine the %change in LV+dP/dtmax from baseline atrial pacing compared to the following configurations: BiV pacing with the LV lead in a one of lateral veins, while pacing from the distal, mid, or proximal electrode and all 3 electrodes together (i...

BACKGROUND: A proven advantage of radial over femoral arterial access has led to an increase in the number of interventions performed via radial artery access in patients with acute coronary syndromes. Both assessment of the pulse volume and the Allen's test are subjective and subject to investigator bias. An ultrasound examination of the forearm arteries provides important information about the anatomy of the forearm vessels, and indirectly also about the efficiency of collateral blood supply to the hand...

Data on the treatment of left anterior descending artery (LAD) stenosis involving or localized distally to left internal mammary artery anastomosis are scarce and not homogeneous. Both surgery (CABG) and percutaneous interventions (PCI) have been attempted, but the most effective treatment has not yet been established. We report a case of a 54-year-old woman suffering from chronic, stable angina and diabetes type 1 successfully treated with percutaneous angioplasty of LAD via the left internal mammary artery with drug-eluting stent implantation with excellent short-term results...

UNLABELLED: The improvement of laparoscopic techniques that we witnessed over the last decade, also applied to pancreatic surgery. Both worldwide and in Poland, increasingly more patients with lesions located within the body and tail of the pancreas are treated using laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy. The aim of the study was to compare the outcomes of laparoscopic and open distal pancreatectomy. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Between January 2009 and March 2013, 107 patients underwent distal pancreatectomy at a single institution: 39 using laparoscopic technique and 68 using open technique...

Extraction of two long-implanted (11 year-old) active leads due to local infection was complicated by the fracture of both leads with a metal sheath. The presence of a temporary pacing lead, inserted due to pacemaker dependence, made extraction even more difficult. The fixation of both proximal extracted lead endings in the occluded subclavian vein was much stronger than the connection of the tips of the leads with the RAA and RVA endocardium. The disintegration of both leads caused by drawing upon the distal ending added additional technical complications to the final procedure...

Urethral duplication and megalourethra are very rare anomalies and their concomitant presence is extremely rare, with only a few published cases. We present a complex case of complete urethral duplication with dorsal megalourethra that was severely stenotic in its bulbar part and meatus, with the ventral urethra atretic distally and dilated proximally. Both the corpus spongiosum and the cavernosum were missing. He had associated upper urinary tract abnormalities. Urethral patency was restored successfully by meatoplasty, staged buccal mucosa graft urethroplasty, and tailoring of the megalourethra...

Asymmetrical position of facial skeleton and movement restriction in the cervical spine in young children could be caused by torticollis mainly muscle origin. We observe miofibrosis of sternocleidomastoid muscle. This face deformation is seen from 0.3 to 1.5% children. Torticollis could be associated with malocclusion, facial asymmetry, vision defect or vertebral body deformation. Muscle stretching is a main type of treatment at infantile age. In the case of faille and in older children sternocleidomastoid myotomy is indicated...

Immobilization-induced bone loss is usually greater in the epiphyses than in the diaphyses. The larger fraction of trabecular bone in the epiphyses than in the diaphyses offers an intuitive explanation to account for this phenomenon. However, recent evidence contradicts this notion and suggests that immobilization-induced bone loss from the distal tibia epiphysis is mainly from the cortical compartment. The aim of this study was to establish whether this pattern of bone loss was a general rule during immobilization...

BACKGROUND: Patients with advanced coronary artery disease (CAD) have an unfovourable prognosis. Therefore, early identification of this high-risk group is important. AIM: To asses the utility of clinical, electrographic and echocardiographic parameters, supported by novel atherogenesis markers, to identify patients with triple vessel coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS: The study group comprised 37 patients (29 males, mean age 64+/-8 years) suffering from multivessel CAD and a control group of 16 patients (8 males, mean age 60+/-10 years), in whom - despite typical stenocardial symptoms, positive exercise stress test and segmental contractility disturbances - coronary angiography did not reveal any haemodynamically significant CAD...
