BACKGROUND Adult survivors of childhood malignancy are predisposed to late cardiovascular (CV) complications. Our aim was to estimate plasma levels of the endogenous nitric oxide formation inhibitor asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), in long-term survivors of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treated with only chemotherapy. METHODS ADMA and(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the relationships of red blood cell distribution width (RDW), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) and erythrocyte deformability with pathological changes of selected target organs, and with inflammation markers interleukin-6 (IL-6) and fibrinogen, in a group of newly diagnosed, never-treated and otherwise healthy(More)
Current standards in the management of Helicobacter pylori infection according to the guidelines by European (Maastricht 2-2000 Consensus Report) and Polish Study Group (IX Congress of Polish Gastroenterology Association) were presented in this paper. The comparison analysis was performed as well as the diagnostic methods were described. The indications for(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The relationship between systemic arterial stiffness and parameters of cerebral circulation is poorly understood. We aimed to assess the relation between pulsatility (PI) and resistance (RI) indexes of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) and aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) and brachial pulse pressure (PP). METHODS Bilateral(More)
In this paper we propose a new computationally efficient algorithm for automatic estimation of intima and media boundary of common carotid artery (CCA) based on ultrasound (USG) image analysis. The intima-media thickness (IMT), equal to distance between intima and media boundary, is typically used to predict cardiovascular events like myocardial infarction(More)
This paper summarizes the evidence supporting the pharmacological treatment of hypertension in the elderly as well as some the remaining controversies. The world is becoming progressively older and with that, the prevalence of hypertension is increasing. A peculiar form of hypertension, most prevalent among the elderly, is isolated systolic hypertension(More)
