BACKGROUND Abnormalities in the skeletal musculature underlie exercise intolerance in chronic heart failure (CHF). We investigated, whether in CHF selective resistance training without accompanying aerobic regime favourably affects muscle strength, muscle mass and improves exercise capacity. METHODS Ten patients with stable ischaemic CHF in NYHA class III(More)
INTRODUCTION Secondary lymphedema affects approximately 40% of women treated for breast cancer and is recognized as a major problem associated with the therapy of malignant tumors. Consequently, new therapeutic methods are constantly being sought to effectively eliminate the condition. One of the new forms of edema management, especially in the initial(More)
AIM The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of cycle exercise during hemodialysis (HD) on patients' physical proficiency, muscle strength, quality of life and selected laboratory parameters. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a group of 29 (15 female, 14 male) HD patients (age 64.2 ± 13.1 years), 3 months of cycle training during dialysis sessions(More)
INTRODUCTION Human body posture changes in the course of ontogenesis. The changes are brought about by both internal factors (illness) and external factors (injury). The negative consequences of a medical condition such as breast cancer, together with the treatment process, undoubtedly contribute to disturbance of body posture. The aim of this paper was to(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of a six-month physical training undertaken by haemodialysis (HD) patients, on the depression and anxiety. METHODS Patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) were recruited from the dialysis station at the Department of Nephrology and Transplantation Medicine in Wroclaw. Physical training(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer treatment may be a cause of postural disorders. OBJECTIVE Assessment of the effects of various forms of physical activity on body posture in the sagittal plane in women post breast cancer treatment. STUDY GROUP Sixty women who had received breast cancer treatment. The study group was intentionally divided into three groups of 20(More)
Regular exercise plays an important preventive and therapeutic role in heart and vascular diseases, and beneficially affects brain function. In blood, the effects of exercise appear to be very complex and could include protection of vascular endothelial cells via neurotrophic factors and decreased oxidative stress. The purpose of this study was to identify(More)
The impact of physical activity on carcinogenesis has been demonstrated in many studies. Taking into account the discrepant results of physical exercise on the cell proliferation and apoptosis of breast cancer, we aimed to examine the impact of physical training on N-methyl-N-nitrosourea-(MNU)-induced mammary carcinogenesis. Fifty female rats were divided(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of breast cancer can lead to abnormally shaped anteroposterior spinal curvatures, which consequently leads to functional disturbances of trunk muscles. The aim of the paper was to investigate the correlation between trunk muscle function and type of body posture in women receiving treatment for breast cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to compare the efficacy of Nordic pole walking (NPW) training with traditional treadmill training (TT) on a claudication (CD) and maximum walking distance (MWD) in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). METHOD Patients with intermittent claudication (IC) (n = 70; age=68.27) in the Fontaine class II were(More)
