PURPOSE Evaluation of a new cardiac MDCT protocol using a split-bolus contrast injection protocol and single MDCT scan for reliable diagnosis of LA/LAA thrombi in comparison to TEE, optimizing radiation exposure and use of contrast agent. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 182 consecutive patients with drug refractory AF scheduled for PVI (62.6 % male, mean(More)
A HPLC procedure was developed to determine free BHPM in human plasma and urine after prior deconjugation of its glucuronides with glucuronidase. A single dose administration of a 10 mg bisacodyl suppository from Glaxo Wellcome, Poznań (Poland) to 16 volunteers each resulted in its low active metabolite (BHPM) plasma levels (10-55 microgram l(-1)) according(More)

The endogenous NO synthase inhibitor asymmetrical dimethylarginine (ADMA) has recently been identified as an independent risk marker for cardiovascular disease and it was the purpose of the present study to investigate(More)

The latter could not be attributed to an underlying malignant or neuroendocrine disease. The recent identification(More)
