OBJECTIVE Current risk stratification in acute pulmonary embolism (APE) includes assessment of clinical status, right ventricular overload and plasma troponin concentrations. As impaired renal function is one of the important predictors of mortality in cardiovascular diseases, we hypothesized that it is an independent early mortality marker in APE. (More)

Since acute renal impairment is one of the important predictors of mortality in cardiovascular diseases, the authors hypothesised that it is an independent mortality marker in APE. MATERIAL(More)
Although the Beckwith-Wiedemann (Exomphalos-Macroglossia-Gigantism) syndrome is felt to be a pre-malignant disorder, its association with lymphoma has not previously been noted. In this report we describe a child with the EMG syndrome who developed a disseminated diffuse lymphoma. Incidentally, he was found to be chronically infected with cytomegalovirus.
BACKGROUND Risk stratification of patients with acute pulmonary embolism (APE) is crucial for appropriate treatment selection. Shock and hypotonia are known indications for aggressive management. However, in the haemodynamically stable group the best prognosis strategy is still being sought. Acute pulmonary embolism often provokes changes in(More)
31 persons without any changes in visual system and 16 patients with vascular lesions were examined using Doppler colour ultrasonography. This method allowed to identify and evaluate the blood flow in central retinal artery, ophthalmic artery and in ciliary arteries. The authors described a typical picture of normal eyeball and orbita as well as the blood(More)
BACKGROUND Cases of renal artery entrapment (RAE) by extrinsic compression have been infrequently reported in the literature. We aimed to describe RAE and elucidate anatomical factors that may be related to renal artery stenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two hundred and four patients' computed tomography scans made for various reasons in Radiology Department(More)
UNLABELLED The number of patients requiring kidney replacement therapy is systematically increasing world wide. At the end of 2000 there were 8424 treated with dialysis in Poland. Ultrasound examinations allow assessment of dialysis fistula morphology and function. OBJECTIVE Assessment of blood flow parameters in hemodialysis fistulas. Assessment of(More)
