Prolonged administration of MTX, however, is limited by the risk of cardiotoxicity. Cardiac monitoring in MTX-treated patients includes usually measurement of left ventricular(More)
Surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) evolves to less invasive, safer and technically easier procedures mostly due to the electrophysiological studies, technological progress and creativeness in ablation systems construction. We present first clinical experience, mid- and long-term results of AF treatment with new liquid nitrogen cryothermy device(More)
