INTRODUCTION Parathormone (PTH) is a very potent uraemic toxin, which affects heart structure and function. PTH also plays the role in uraemic autonomic neuropathy (AN). The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between high PTH level and AN assessed with frequency domain measures of heart rate variability (HRV). MATERIALS AND METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND The overwhelming majority of myocardial infarctions result from atherosclerosis, generally with superimposed coronary thrombosis. The prevalence of patients who develop myocardial infarction and in whom subsequent angiography shows normal coronary arteries is approximately 5%. Many of these cases are caused by coronary artery spasm and/or(More)
Cardiotoxicity is a rare but very serious side effect of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) treatment. Many theories have been suggested to explain the mechanism of this problem. Most commonly, coronary artery spasm is considered responsible in cardiovascular toxicity. Ischemic symptoms and signs related to 5-FU therapy are observed during the late phase of the(More)
Echocardiographic study of left ventricular posterior wall motion was performed on 22 healthy subjects, on 7 cardiac patients without angina, and on 12 patients with angina pectoris, at rest and during supine exercise on a bicycle ergometer. Resting values did not differ significantly between patients with angina and control subjects. During submaximal(More)
BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is one of the most common chronic infections in humans. While a causative relationship between H. pylori infection and several gastrointestinal disorders has been well established, the association between this condition and the development of atherosclerosis and coronary artery diseases (CAD) is less(More)
Usefulness of the standard test to control hemostatic balance has been evaluated in 22 pregnant women in III trimester with preeclampsia. Unpregnant and pregnant healthy women there were the control group. Increase of the fibrinogen concentration and the fibrinolysis time prolongation have been confirmed as well as increase of the degradation fibrin/ogen(More)
The results of the cervical Pap. smear taken before cold knife conization and the histopathological results of the cones removed in 336 women, were compared. In cytological examination we found 10.8% (13/120) false negative results, which did not confirm of the existence the precancerous lesion within cervical epithelium. The mild dysplasia according to(More)
