BACKGROUND/AIMS: To identify predictive factors of rebleeding and mortality after endoscopic therapy in patients with high risk peptic ulcers. METHODOLOGY: Patients hospitalized due to bleeding from high-risk peptic ulcers (Forrest classes Ia, Ib, IIa and IIb) during a five-year study, received endoscopic hemostatic therapy (diluted epinephrine injection, clipping or both) in addition to proton pump inhibitors. We looked for clinical, endoscopic and laboratory parameters that had influenced rebleeding and mortality in these patients...

Nonsteroidal antiinflamatory drugs (NSAIDs) lead to satisfactory acute and chronic pain relief. Besides that, they exert potent antiinflamatory effect. Their analgesic potency is dose related and limited. Orthopedic patients are often on these medications preoperatively and experience opioid-sparing effect in the postoperative period. Chronic NSAIDs use is related to higher rate of sistemic adverse effects, but even short time exposure in the postoperative period is not risk-free. Although Coxibs reduce GIT bleeding incidence due to prolonged use of NSAIDs, there has to be judicious decision considering their cardiovascular adverse effects...

Analysis of peri-implant crevicular fluid (PICF) offers a non-invasive means of studying the host response in peri-implant disease and may provide an early indication of patients at risk for active disease. This study examined the PICF levels of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta), tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-8 (IL-8) and macrophage inflammatory protein-1alpha (MIP-1alpha) in patients with non-manifesting inflammation, early and late stages of mucositis. The study group comprised 90 adult healthy volunteers with endosseal titanium implants inserted...

Even with its narrow therapeutic index, interindividual variability in daily dose and possible serious bleeding complications, is warfarin the mainstay of therapy and prevention of thromboembolic disease. The application of pharmacogenetics in testing individual polymorphisms of two genes CYP 2C9 (pharmacokinetics of warfarin) and VKORC1 (sensitivity on warfarin) is promising tactics leading to a safe anticoagulation. The first of two applications of pharmacogenetics is assesment of the daily dose of warfarin for individual patients even before starting the therapy...

AIM: In this study, the short-term and long-term morbidity was assesed after axillary sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) with or without completion axillary lymph node dissection (SLNB/ALND) in patients with cutaneous melanoma. METHODS: Between 1995 and 2003, 119 axillary SLNBs were performed for cutaneous melanoma. Fifty-eight patients met the inclusion criteria and entered the study. RESULTS: Forty-four patients underwent SLNB alone and 14 patients underwent axillary lymph node dissection after positive SLNB...
