BACKGROUND Patients with a first episode of unprovoked venous thromboembolism have a high risk of recurrence after discontinuation of anticoagulant therapy. Extending anticoagulation reduces the risk of recurrence but is associated with increased bleeding. Sulodexide, a glycosaminoglycan, exerts antithrombotic and profibrinolytic actions with a low bleeding(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to assess blood flow in the vessels of the eyeball and changes in the optic nerve in patients with arterial hypertension and primary open-angle glaucoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS The patients were divided into groups: 1 (night blood pressure, BP, fall, NBPF, not more than 10%; non-dippers); 2 (NBPF 10-15%, dippers) and 3(More)
Calcium antagonists are widely used in therapy of hypertension and angina pectoris. Their advantage is good efficacy, relatively few and not dangerous side effects and first of all lack of bad metabolic effects (hypokalemia, hyperuricemia, hyperinsulinemia and hyperlipoproteinemia). In contrast to beta-blockers and diuretics, which decline mortality from(More)
Many patients with glaucoma suffer from arterial hypertension (AH). It has been proved that both AH and low blood pressure (BP) at night are important vascular risk factors for primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). The aims of this study were to assess the severity of pathological changes within the optic nerve and characteristics of blood flow in selected(More)
INTRODUCTION    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is considered to be one of the major causes of resistant arterial hypertension (RAH). Apnea episodes cause hypoxia, which triggers the activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. This leads to water retention and swelling in the neck region, exacerbating OSA symptoms. It is assumed that the use of(More)
