INTRODUCTION: Positron emission tomography with computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) is a nuclear medicine diagnostic method which, unlike other technological modalities that asses anatomical features, detects increased glucose metabolism inside the cells, thus is very helpful in diagnosing cardiovascular infection and inflammation and also in therapy planning. AIM: Aim of this study was to assess the significance of 18F-FDG PET/CT in detection of an active disease in patients with infection and inflammation of cardiovascular system...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) is the treatment of choice in decompensated portal hypertension. TIPS revision due to thrombosis or stenosis increases morbidity and mortality. Our aim was to investigate patient- and procedure-associated risk factors for TIPS-revision. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 189 patients who underwent the TIPS procedure. Only patients who required TIPS revision within 1 year (Group I, 34 patients) and patients who did not require re-intervention within the first year (Group II [control group], 54 patients) were included...

BACKGROUND: Intracoronary thrombus in acute myocardial infarction (MI) confers higher rates of no-reflow with attendant adverse consequences. Earlier randomized-controlled-trials (RCTs) of routine thromboaspiration during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) indicated a clinical benefit, but more recent RCTs were negative. However, data of selective use of this adjunctive approach remain scarce. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this single-centre prospective study was to report the results of selective thromboaspiration during PCI in patients with intracoronary thrombi, and also to provide an extensive literature review on current status of thromboaspiration...

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has emerged as a novel therapy for the treatment of several movement and neuropsychiatric disorders, and may also be suitable for the treatment of Tourette syndrome (TS). The main DBS targets used to date in patients with TS are located within the basal ganglia-thalamo-cortical circuit involved in the pathophysiology of this syndrome. They include the ventralis oralis/centromedian-parafascicular (Vo/CM-Pf) nucleus of the thalamus and the nucleus accumbens. Current DBS treatments deliver continuous electrical stimulation and are not designed to adapt to the patient's symptoms, thereby contributing to unwanted side effects...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of post-surgical chronic pain ranges between 20% and 40% in Europe. Osteoarthritis pain after prosthesis implantation is one of the most severe secondary syndromes, depending not only on surgery but also on organic changes before and after joints replacement. No data are available about risk factors. An excessive inflammatory response plays a central role but a best therapy is not defined yet. It is not clear whether opioid administration could influence post-surgical pain and lead to tolerance or addiction...

Coronary artery perforation (CAP) is a rare, but potentially mortal possible complication of percutaneous coronary intervention. There are several treatment options for this complication, including prolonged balloon dilatation, use of a coronary stent graft, and bypass surgery. In this case report, a 65-year-old female patient who was admitted to the catheter laboratory with a diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome, was presented. Coronary angiography revealed total occlusion in the mid segment of the right coronary artery and a drug-eluting stent was implanted under 12 atm of pressure following pre-dilatation with a perfusion balloon...

Bone cement implantation syndrome (BCIS) is a rare form of intraoperative pulmonary embolism (EP) that occurs during cementation. It can be explained by two main theories: the monomer mediated model and the mechanic model. Our goal is to evaluate thromboelastographic changes in patients undergoing surgery for femoral neck fractures. We recruited 32 patients with a femoral neck fracture. The average age was 81.91 years (range 62-95). The patients were divided in two different groups: cemented hip arthroplasty (CC, 13 patients) and other surgical non-cemented techniques (SC, non-cemented hip arthroplasty, osteosynthesis)...

This case report describes a 9-year-old male who presented to the emergency department with 2 days' history of left painful red eye. On initial examination, his outside medical records indicated that he had bilateral subluxated lenses and had undergone left eye lensectomy with glued intrascleral fixation of an intraocular lens 8 weeks earlier. Vision in left eye was poor from first postoperative day but with no undue pain or redness, and poor vision was attributed to possible vitreous bleed. Subsequent postoperative course was uneventful...

Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome (PLS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of keratinization associated with palmoplantar keratoderma and severe periodontitis resulting in complete edentulism in late adolescence. The pathognomonic dental features of PLS are pathologic migration, hypermobility, and exfoliation of the teeth without any signs of root resorption. It has been suggested that an effective way to treat PLS patients presenting early in the disease progression is extraction of the erupted primary dentition or hopeless permanent teeth followed by antibiotic coverage with periodontal therapy for the remaining teeth...

BACKGROUND: Steroid-eluting pacemaker leads suppress acute rises in pacing threshold by preventing inflammatory processes. However, we occasionally encounter not persistent but transient rise in the atrial capture threshold (TRACT) early after pacemaker implantation. We believe that this phenomenon is underrecognized in clinical practice and may potentially lead to unnecessary reintervention. We aimed to clarify the prevalence, predictors, and possible mechanisms of TRACT. METHODS AND RESULTS: We reviewed clinical records from 239 consecutive patients who underwent dual-chamber pacemaker implantation for sick sinus syndrome (SSS) (N = 102) or atrioventricular block (AVB) (N = 137)...

Ischemia and reperfusion injury (IRI) is an inevitable event in conventional organ transplant procedure and is associated with significant mortality and morbidity post-transplantation. We hypothesize that IRI is avoidable if the blood supply for the organ is not stopped, thus resulting in optimal transplant outcomes. Here we described the first case of a novel procedure called ischemia-free organ transplantation (IFOT) for patients with end-stage liver disease. The liver graft with severe macrovesicular steatosis was donated from a 25-year-old man...
