BACKGROUND Patients with degenerative aortic stenosis (AS) exhibit elevated prevalence of coronary artery disease (CAD) and internal carotid artery stenosis (ICAS). Our aim was to investigate prevalence of significant CAD and ICAS in relation to demographic and cardiovascular risk profile among patients with severe degenerative AS. METHODS We studied 145(More)
We report a case of a 55 year-old female with chronic renal failure who received routine haemodialysis and suffered from acute myocardial infarction of inferior wall. Based on coronary angiogram, transoesophageal echocardiography, and autopsy,coronary embolisation with vegetations in the course of infective endocarditis was identified as a rare cause of(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to assess the influence of the orthostatic stress test on changes in aortic pressure gradients in patients with aortic stenosis (AS). METHODS The orthostatic stress test was performed in 56 AS patients. The maximum aortic gradient was compared between the supine and the upright position (using Doppler echocardiography(More)
INTRODUCTION Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a less invasive treatment option for elderly, high-risk patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis (AS) than aortic valve replacement. More importantly, TAVI improves survival and quality of life as compared to medical treatment in inoperable patients. AIM To assess early- and mid-term(More)
Background: The utilization of the radial access (RA) for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has gradually increased. Recent studies suggest an advantage over femo-ral access (FA) in high-risk patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The aim was to evaluate bleeding complications and periprocedural outcomes with(More)
