AIMS The heritability of aerobic power and of the response to physical training has been shown in healthy subjects. beta(1)-Adrenergic receptor (beta(1)AR) function affects exercise performance. This study aims to investigate whether the Ser49Gly and Gly389Arg polymorphisms of the beta(1)AR gene or their haplotypes are associated with aerobic power or its(More)
In 927 biologically unrelated Caucasian patients with coronary artery disease it was investigated whether the NcoI restriction fragment length polymorphism of the muscle-specific creatine kinase (CKMM) gene is associated with aerobic power and with the response to physical training. Physical training significantly (P<0.001) increased peak oxygen consumption(More)
Background. The prognostic value of cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is known, but the predictive value of 6MWT in patients with heart failure (HF) and patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is not established yet. Objective. We conducted a systematic review exploring the prognostic value of 6MWT in HF patients undergoing cardiac(More)
BACKGROUND Surgeons and nurses are exposed to orthostatic stress. AIMS To assess the lifetime incidence of syncopal and presyncopal events during surgery in operation room staff and reveal the predicting factors. METHODS AND RESULTS The study included 317 subjects (161 F, 156 M) aged 43.9 ± 9.6; 216 surgeons and 101 instrumenters. The study included(More)
Diabetes is often complicated by serious medical conditions which could be related to the development of auditory system and cranial nerves lesions, disorder of sound localisation and decreased olfactory and taste ability. Cranial nerve palsies in diabetes are considered as an integral part of the main disease. Twenty nine children with diabetes and(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of residential (RCR) vs ambulatory (ACR) cardiac rehabilitation (CR) on health-related quality of life (QOL) connected with changes in exercise capacity of patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). METHODS AND RESULTS The 562 patients with CHD were studied: 313 participants in RCR and 249(More)
