Despite various great scientific and financial efforts, head and neck carcinomas represent a public health problem, being the eighth cause of cancer death worldwidely. The rate of tumor growth, its local expansion, as well as the metastasis of cancerous cells depend on the tumor vascularization, on the ability of blood vessels to provide a constant supply(More)
Data on the management of atrial fibrillation (AF) in the Balkan Region are limited. The Serbian AF Association (SAFA) prospectively investigated contemporary 'real-world' AF management in clinical practice in Albania, Bosnia&Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia through a 14-week (December 2014-February 2015) prospective,(More)
Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have an increased risk for cardiac arrhythmias. Ventricular late potentials (VLP) on signal-averaged electrocardiography (SAECG) are associated with an increased risk for malignant ventricular arrhythmias. Our aim is to investigate the modifications of SAECG parameters and the presence of VLP as(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have an increased risk for both supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. Autonomic dysregulation may be responsible for the development of arrhythmias in these patients, and its analysis could be useful for identifying those at high risk for arrhythmias. STUDY QUESTION Our purpose(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with higher incidence of supraventricular arrhythmias. Atrial late potentials (ALP) detected by P-wave signal-averaged electrocardiography (SAECG) could be useful in detecting the patients at risk for supraventricular arrhythmias. Our objective was to assess the role of P-wave SAECG and(More)
We present the case of a 47-year-old woman with reccurent syncope. The investigations for establishing the etiology of syncope were extended over 4 years and multiple possible mecahisms for the syncope were identified. Even if the guidelines mention a good diagnostic yield for history and initial evaluation, for some selected cases the initial diagnostic(More)
Syncope in the aging population has two characteristics--it always has a multifactorial origin and age by itself is a predictor of a worse outcome even in syncope with an apparent benign mechanism. Therefore, it is worthwhile investigating extensively the cardiac substrate in selected cases when the initial evaluation demonstrates its presence. In the cases(More)
INTRODUCTION Data on management of atrial fibrillation (AF) in the Balkan Region are scarce. To capture the patterns in AF management in contemporary clinical practice in the Balkan countries a prospective survey was conducted between December 2014 and February 2015, and we report results pertinent to the use of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants(More)
