Atherosclerotic changes on the coronary arteries are the basis of the ischemic heart disease. It is assumed that the initial changes in this process occur as a consequence of the lipid peroxidation in the vessel wall. We estimated this process through the level of malondialdehyde (MDA) in the serum of 86 patients in whom selective coronary angiography was(More)
OBJECTIVES Lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) concentration is determined primarily by the apolipoprotein(a) (apo(a)) gene. The pentanucleotide (TTTTA)n repeat and G/A-914 polymorphisms are in the 5' promoter region of the apo(a) gene. To elucidate whether these polymorphisms affect Lp(a) levels, a total of 211 Serbian adults were investigated. DESIGN One hundred and(More)
BACKGROUND The occurrence of a floating thrombus in the right heart, although rare, is a life-threatening condition requiring a specific approach. In most cases, these thrombi are a result of embolization from deep venous thrombosis, and have lodged temporarily in the right heart. The management of this condition is variable, depending on whether or not(More)
Using a case study, This work presents interactive hypertext, a tool for asynchronous interaction within the online classroom. The approach is descriptive, based mainly on the authors' observations during two years of use of interactive hypertext. The paper describes different modes of use of interactive hypertext, some of the particular features of this(More)
INTRODUCTION Primary heart tumors are very rare. They can be benign and malignant. Benign ones make about two thirds of all heart tumors. However, they are benign only by their biologic characteristics, but potentially malignant by their localization. About three forths of benign tumors are myxomas. Their growth is usually slow and they can be for a long(More)
INTRODUCTION/AIM Atherosclerosis presents a serial of highly specific cellular and molecular responses, and could be described as inflammatory diseases. Accordingly, for development of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), structure and vulnerability of atherosclerotic plaque are more important than the extent of stenosis of infarct-related artery.(More)
