OBJECTIVES Postconditioning has been reported to reduce infarct size in ST-segment myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, recently, few other studies did not show any effect of postconditioning and suggested that it may be even harmful. We sought to assess whether postconditioning could reduce infarct size and improve myocardial reperfusion in early(More)
BACKGROUND It has been demonstrated that postconditioning (postcon), brief episodes of ischemia during reperfusion period, in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) confers protection against ischemia-reperfusion injury and as a result, postcon might reduce infarct size. However, whether postcon may exert its beneficial effect on(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of our study was an estimation of the size and structure of the pituitary gland using MRI and the estimation of hormonal profile of the pituitary anterior lobe (except for ACTH) in 21 adult patients with congenital primary hypothyroidism. MATERIAL AND METHODS The studied group was divided into 2 subgroups: A--with normal level of serum(More)
The aim of the study was an evaluation of the impact of L-thyroxine substitution therapy on the size and structure of the pituitary gland using MRI in three patients with pituitary hyperplasia or tumor secondary to primary congenital hypothyroidism. Along with imaging studies (MRI, skull X-rays) all patients had performed hormonal tests. All hormones(More)
Patient with primary hyperparathyroidism and papillary thyroid cancer was presented. The female patient, 45 years old, because of papillary thyroid cancer was treated in the typical way by total strumectomy with lymphadenectomy following by 1131 therapy and L-thyroxine suppressive therapy. After 9 years, during one of control routine examinations, the serum(More)
UNLABELLED Lack of thyroid hormones in the womb and the first years of life causes changes in the nervous system and mental retardation. The aim of the study was to assess changes in peripheral and central nervous system in 29 adult patients with primary congenital hypothyroidism (PCH) depending on the cause of the disease and systematic treatment of(More)
