The authors administered to 10 patients with mild hypertension a single dose of 10 mg bisoprolol (CONCOR-Merck) during bioimpedance control of changes of the cardiac index and peripheral vascular resistance during an isometric load after an interval of 3 and 24 hours following administration of the drug. In all patients administration of the drug led during(More)
INTRODUCTION Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) has been shown to be a highly effective treatment strategy for patients with severe chronic heart failure (ChHF). OBJECTIVE OF STUDY To determine the clinical response of patients to CRT, to measure morbidity and mortality for this population of patients, to determine causes and predictors of death. To(More)
The case report describes a rare cause of acute myocardial infarction. 68-years old man with the cancer triplicity (follicular and papillar carcinoma of the thyroid gland, Grawitz tumor, bronchogenic carcinoma with generalization) was admitted to the intensive care unit for the sudden onset of chest pain, positivity of cardioselective enzymes and signs of(More)

Transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a safe procedure with a low complication rate. We present a patient with severe coronary artery stenosis or disease who developed acute coronary ischemia of the anterior wall as a complication of TEE procedure. The possible mechanism can be stress during the procedure.
Problems which arise in conjunction with the use of assisted reproduction methods are no longer resolved only by the gynaecologist. The authors demonstrate on the case of a female patient the necessity of interdisciplinary collaboration in the diagnosis and therapy of developed ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)--the most serious complication of(More)
Pericarditis is a common disease caused by a number of factors. Chronic pericarditis is defined as the presence of pericardial effusion for more than 3 or 6 months. The case study reports a case of familiar incidence of chronic exsudative pericarditis in a young woman, her sister and her mother, with an analysis of diagnostic and therapeutic options.(More)
UNLABELLED In patients with atrioventricular dissociation associated with complete atrioventricular block or reverse synchronization and preservation of the sinus rhythm the atria are mechanically over-burdened by contraction in an inept stage of the cardiac cycle (against a closed atrioventricular valve). Prolonged overburdening leads to dilatation of the(More)
