BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) has been increasingly linked to cardiovascular disease. Inflammatory processes associated with OSA may contribute to this morbidity. Some studies have reported serum levels of high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) to be increased in these patients. PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: investigate the impact of short and long-term autoadjusting positive airway pressure (APAP) therapy on IL-6 and hs-CRP serum levels in patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnoea...

Revascularization of renal artery stenosis for the treatment of hypertension is an established procedure. In selected clinical scenarios, successful revascularization procedures may preserve or restore renal function. We present a 66-year-old man with secundary hypertension and deteriorating renal function caused by bilateral atherosclerotic renal artery disease (complete obstruction of the left renal artery and subocclusive stenosis of the right) in which blood pressure was successfully controlled and renal function improved and maintained steady after bilateral percutaneus transluminal angioplasty and renal artery stenting...

UNLABELLED: Over 27 year period (1.01.1974-31.12.2001) a 168 patients (pts) were operated on for benign bile duct strictures of types I to IV according to Bismuth's classification. Reconstruction of fresh lesions and lesions and strictures of sectorial or segmental ducts were not taken into account. The later are to be the subject of separate publication. There were 107(63.7%) women and 61(36.3%) men of average age of 46 years (ranging from 14 to 76 years). The average time from injury to our reconstruction was 8...

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis represents a finding in several renal disorders, characterized by proteinuria and sometimes by arterial hypertension and progressive decline in renal function. There are primary (idiopathic and familial) and secundary forms. In the last 20 years several familial cases has been reported, with a great genetic heterogeneity (dominant and recessive forms) and with multiple associations with particular MHC class-I and class-II gene loci, being Al, DR3 o DR7 the most frequently reported...

PURPOSE: To determine the frequency of coronary artery disease, microalbuminuria and the relation to lipid profile disorders, blood pressure and clinical and metabolic features. METHODS: Fifty-five type 2 diabetic patients (32 females, 23 males), aged 59.9 +/- 9 years and with known diabetes duration of 11 +/- 7.3 years were studied. Coronary artery disease (CAD) was defined as a positive history of myocardial infarction, typical angina, myocardial revascularization or a positive stress testing...

Two prostaglandin molecules have important physiological and pathophysiological role in the tissues of the eye. Prostaglandin F2 alpha takes part in mediating intraocular pressure, prostaglandin E2 is the mediator of inflammation. In case of increased intraocular pressure, latanoprost a derivative of prostaglandin F2 alpha can be applied. Numerous data are available on the favourable intraocular pressure lowering effect of latanoprost. It can be applied as a single hypotensive or it can be combined with eye-drops currently used in glaucoma...
