INTRODUCTION Although recommendations for the antithrombotic management of atrial fibrillation (AF) are based on strong evidence, the European guidelines are not fully implemented into practice. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study is to analyse antithrombotic treatment in AF in Poland after the publication of the European Society of Cardiology(More)
BACKGROUND Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), a widely accepted diagnostic marker of acute renal injury (AKI) may be involved in the development of atherosclerosis. PURPOSE To assess the prognostic significance of serum and urinary NGAL and serum cystatin C in patients with stable angina undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia of high clinical importance, occurring in 2% of the general population and in 19-24% in patients with chronic kidney disease. It is a well-known risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Kidney transplant recipients with a history of AF were associated with significantly(More)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common cardiovascular disease while atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. Both diseases share associated risk factors - hypertension, diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea, obesity and smoking. Moreover, inflammation plays a causative role in both diseases. The prevalence of CAD in patients with(More)
BACKGROUND There is not much data on matrix metalloproteinase neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (MMP-NGAL) complex in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). AIM The aim of the study was to assess the value of MMP-NGAL complex in predicting AF recurrence after electrical cardioversion. METHODS The serum levels of NGAL, cystatin C,(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia occurring in 2% of the population. It is known that AF increases morbidity and limits quality of life. The CHA2 DS2 VASc score (congestive heart failure/left ventricular dysfunction, hypertension, age ≥75 (doubled), diabetes, stroke (doubled), vascular disease, age 65-74 and sex category(More)
Fabry disease is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder with deficiency of alpha-galactosidase activity leading to impaired organ function due to glycosphingolipids accumulation [1]. We present the first case of cardiac device-related endocarditis (CDRE) in a 53-year-old man with Fabry disease, severe hypertrophy and CKD. He had implanted dual-chamber(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS There are no data concerning renal function in population with valvular and non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). To assess renal function in patients with AF, the association between eGFR and AF perpetuation, in-hospital mortality. METHODS We studied 1523 patients with AF. Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) were compared to(More)
