OBJECTIVE We report an extremely rare case of germ-cell tumor localized at the level of the anterior mediastinum. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 36-year-old man who presented with left subclavial vein thrombosis was admitted to our hospital for specific cure. Computed tomographic scan of the chest showed a large anterior mediastinal mass. Surgical intervention(More)
Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is a common complication subsequent to cardiac surgery. Various risk factors have been reported for the development of this complication; however, their precise role in POAF is unknown. In the present study, we attempted to identify clinical factors and histopathological changes in atrial tissue that may predict the(More)
Atrial fibrillation is still the most common arrhythmia that occurs in heart surgery. However, there is few literature data on the manner in which preoperative atrial fibrillation may influence the postoperative outcome of various heart surgery procedures. The purpose of our research is to assess the effects of preoperative atrial fibrillation on patients(More)
BACKGROUND We are the first to evaluate the prevalence of renal artery stenosis (RAS) in consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) referred for primary percutaneous coronary intervention from a single tertiary center. As a novelty, we assessed hydration and metabolic status and measured arterial stiffness. We elaborated a predicting model(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a frequent occurrence and a negative prognostic indicator in patients with mitral regurgitation. Preoperative PH causes higher early and late mortality rates after heart surgery, adverse cardiac events, and postoperative systolic dysfunction in the left ventricle (LV). METHODS The research consisted of a(More)

The types of lesion instability responsible for the majority of acute coronary events frequently include plaque disruption and plaque erosion with superimposed thrombosis. The term 'vulnerable plaque is used to describe atherosclerotic (ATS) plaques that are particularly prone to rupture and susceptible to thrombus formation, such as the thin-cap(More)
Calcification of the leaflets of bioprosthetic heart valves (BHV) made from glutaraldehyde treated bovine or porcine pericardium or porcine aortic valves is related to the failure of these devices. The aim of this study is to evaluate the degeneration and calcification of explanted BHV and to analyze the underlying chemical substrate and risk factors. The(More)
