INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to assess quality of life (QoL) in patients with infiltrative form of Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO) during the combined pulse treatment with methylprednisolone and orbital radiotherapy, and also to search for the relation between the results of ophthalmopathy treatment and changes in QoL. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study(More)
INTRODUCTION Laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA) has become the standardized treatment of benign adrenal lesions over the last two decades, making the indications to open adrenalectomy (OA) limited. The purpose of this study was to show the thirty years of experience in open (OA) and laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA) gained in one medical centre as well as to(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated whether the vitamin D3 receptor gene (VDR) polymorphism can modulate therapeutic response of functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA) patients to the oestroprogestagen (EP) treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 84 FHA girls and 50 controls. FHA patients underwent a four-year sequential EP therapy with 17-β(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY To assess resource utilization and costs of treatment with lanreotide AUTOGEL 120 mg (ATG120) administered as part of routine acromegaly care in Poland. MATERIAL AND METHODS A multicentre, non-interventional, observational study on resource utilization in Polish acromegalic patients treated with ATG120 at 4 weeks or extended (> 4 weeks)(More)
Lumbar spine bone mineral density (BMD) values were measured in women with Turner's syndrome (TS) and the influence of primary ovarian failure as well as the age at the start of estroprogestins (EP) therapy were considered. EP treatment with 2mg of estradiol (E2) and BMD monitoring were started in 72 and finally continued for 5 years in 34 patients with TS,(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was a retrospective analysis of outcomes following laparoscopic adrenalectomy (LA) performed for benign adrenal tumours responsible for various endocrinological disorders. The patients were diagnosed with non-functioning (NFT) and functioning adrenal tumours (FT) including pheochromocytoma (PH), Conn's syndrome (CO) and(More)
Puberty is a critical bone mineralisation period, and peak bone mass attained by adolescent girls is one of the most significant predictive factors for postmenopausal osteoporosis. Adolescent girls' peak bone mass depends on genetic factors as well as on general condition, nutritional status and body mass; lifestyle is also important, along with physical(More)
Adrenal tumors, discovered incidentally in approximately 4.5% of imaging procedures, are known as adrenal incidentalomas. Nonclassic congenital adrenal hyperplasia, mild form of 21-hydroxylase deficiency, may lead to the development of adrenocortical tumors. The aim of the study was to evaluate prevalence of the most common nonclassic mutations of CYP21A2(More)
The aim of this study is to compare two different diagnostic methods (magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and soluble forms of adhesion molecules: ICAM-1 and VCAM-1 measurement) in assessment of the activity of thyroid orbitopathy (TO) in patients with Graves' disease. 21 patients with infiltrative TO were treated with modified method by Bartalena et al. MRI(More)
It is known that body composition, especially body fat content, determines plasma leptin (LEP) levels. Clinical observation confirms that glucocorticoids (GS) have a considerable impact on body composition and body fat distribution which leads to visceral fat accumulation and a decrease in muscle mass in limbs. On the other hand, in experimental models GS(More)
