SDF-1, a chemokine secreted by injured tissues, may be instrumental in chemoattracting CXCR4(+) stem cells (SCs) for repair of infarcted myocardium. We hypothesize that the myocardial SDF-1 expression determines also the engraftment and beneficial effects of SCs transplanted into the infarcted heart. Myocardial infarction (MI) was induced in rats by(More)
BACKGROUND Transvenous implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) have been implanted in Poland since 1995. As the method spreads it is important to consider its long-term benefits and disadvantages. AIM To assess survival, efficacy and complication rate in ICD patients, who received the device more than ten years earlier. METHODS Retrospective(More)
Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) has been increasingly used for bridge-to-recovery, bridge-to-decision or bridge to ventricular assist device (VAD) implantation or heart transplantation in patients with cardiogenic shock (CS). We report a case of iatrogenic left main coronary artery (LMCA) dissection and secondary cardiogenic(More)
