More and more is known about the role of venous wall abnormalities and valvular incompetence in the development of chronic venous disorders (CVD). Unfortunately detailed mechanisms of CVD pathophysiology are not well understood. Recent studies focus on involvement of the inflammatory process in the structural remodeling of venous valves and venous wall. The(More)
Chronic venous disease (CVD) is an insufficiency of distal veins caused by their partial or total obstruction, endothelial distension and functional disorders.

T cell memory in comparison with B cell memory is not well understood. This review focuses on CD8+ and CD4+ memory T cells. In this article we try to define memory cells and also present models of memory T cells formation. We would also like to delineate their differentiation into distinct subsets. Long-lived memory T cells consist in two main subsets: TCM(More)

The two most common approaches are the lateral transperitoneal approach (LTA) and the posterior retroperitoneal approach (PRA). So far it has not been established which is the preferable one. The choice depends primarily on the surgeon's(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is the gold standard for the surgical treatment of benign adrenal masses. It is most commonly performed using the lateral transperitoneal approach (LTA) and the posterior retroperitoneal approach (PRA). The choice of the method depends on contraindications for a particular approach in an individual case and surgical(More)
