BACKGROUND Rhabdomyoma is the most frequent primary cardiac tumour in children (about 50% of all cardiac neoplasms in this population). Fibroma, myxoma, teratoma and haemangioma are less frequent. AIM To investigate the clinical presentation, diagnosis and follow-up of children diagnosed with cardiac tumours in our department between 1993 and 2008. (More)
Cardiac pacemaker was implanted as a therapeutic method for children with atrio-ventricular block, sick sinus syndrome, LQT syndrome, cardio-depressive syncope. Twenty six children (aged 1-17) underwent pacemaker implantation or exchange of pacemaker and electrode. In nineteen cases cardiac peacemaker was implanted in the endocardial system; in the next(More)
BACKGROUND Ventricular arrhythmias are the most common consequences of structural and functional heart diseases, but cases with no evident pathology are also observed. A parameter indicating asymptomatic circulatory failure could support decisions related to possible treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. HYPOTHESIS The study objective was the evaluation(More)
Intraperitoneal administration of calcium causes a significant drop in the body temperature (p less than 0.01). The animals in which a temperature drop was obtained in this way were subjected to an intense exercise on a running track. No significant differences were observed in the exercise-induced body temperature rise in the group of experimental and(More)
Authors describe the case of 4 years old girl with Down syndrome, who was operated due to common atrio-ventricular canal and persistent Botalli's duct. Intermittent total atrio-ventricular block (without significant bradycardia) has been observed one year later and considered as a late postoperative block requiring no treatment. Kawasaki disease was(More)
Animals with body temperature reduced by intraperitoneal injection of calcium ions were subjected to intensive exercise at raised ambient temperature. A significant difference was observed between the experimental and the control group in body temperature rise (p less than 0.001). The rats of temperature rise was significantly lower in the experimental(More)
