AIMS Patient access to reperfusion therapy and the use of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (p-PCI) or thrombolysis (TL) varies considerably between European countries. The aim of this study was to obtain a realistic contemporary picture of how patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are treated in different European countries. (More)
Lamins (LMNA) are the main proteins of the nuclear lamina considered to be the ancestors of all intermediate filament proteins. They form complex protein assemblies with integral proteins of the inner nuclear membrane, transcriptional regulators, histones and chromatin modifiers. During recent years, interest in lamins has greatly increased due to the(More)

BACKGROUND Genome-wide studies have shown that polymorphisms on chromosome 4q25, 16q22 and 1q21 correlate with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, the distribution of these polymorphisms differs significantly among populations. OBJECTIVE To test the polymorphisms on chromosome 4q25, 16q22 and 1q21 in a group of patients (pts) that underwent catheter(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet reactivity in patients on acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) therapy can be influenced by physiological or pathological conditions affecting ASA pharmacokinetics or pharmacodynamics. The mechanism of such variability in the therapeutic response to ASA, particularly in diabetic patients, is poorly understood. The rate of elimination of ASA and(More)

BACKGROUND Despite a substantial progress in diagnosis and therapy, acute myocardial infarction (MI) is a major cause of mortality in the general population. A novel insight into the pathophysiology of myocardial infarction obtained by studying gene expression should help to discover novel biomarkers of MI and to suggest novel strategies of therapy. The aim(More)
PURPOSE Assessment of stroke risk and implementation of appropriate antithrombotic therapy is an important issue in atrial fibrillation patients. Current risk scores do not take into consideration the comorbidities associated with elevated thromboembolic like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The aim of the study was to establish whether atrial fibrillation(More)
INTRODUCTION Recent studies point to analysis of T-wave alternans as a promising indicator of an increased risk of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. In this study the occurrence of T-wave alternans in the high-resolution ECGs recorded during the exercise stress test and scintigraphic tests (SPECT) in patients with ischemic heart disease was(More)
INTRODUCTION Our aim was to evaluate the differences in the early hemodynamic response to the tilt test (HUTT) in patients with and without syncope using impedance cardiography (ICG). MATERIAL AND METHODS One hundred twenty-six patients (72 female/48 male; 37 ±17 years) were divided into a group with syncope (HUTT(+), n = 45 patients) and a group without(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to assess myocardial ischemia by analysis of ST-segment changes in high-resolution body surface potential maps (HR-BSPM) measured at rest and during an exercise stress test. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was carried out on a group of 28 patients with stable coronary artery disease and 15 healthy volunteers. The(More)
Anticancer treatment with the human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER) 2 inhibitors can lead to significant myocardial dysfunction. The primary aim of the study was to estimate the possible association between gene expression in the ErbB signaling pathway and selected clinical event data in patients with acute heart failure. Twenty-four patients (19(More)
