Modifications in lipoprotein lipase levels lead to elevated triglycerides and reduced high density lipoprotein (HDL), both of which are risk factors for coronary artery disease (CAD). Hence, we examined the influence of the -93T/G, D9N, N291S, and S447X polymorphisms in the lipoprotein lipase (LPL) gene on CAD risk and lipid levels in Croatian patients with(More)
This study was performed to assess the effect of the S447X and Hind III lipoprotein lipase gene polymorphisms on development of coronary artery disease and hypertriglyceridemia. The study included 132 patients and 98 healthy control subjects of Croatian descent. The lipoprotein lipase S447X polymorphism was associated with coronary artery disease and(More)
Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) represents a spectrum of conditions caused by activated malignant coronary disease, with one of the following outcomes: stabilization, myocardial infarction or sudden death. The strategies of diagnostic procedures and treatment for ACS have been developed on the basis of differentiation between the two main groups of patients:(More)
A patient with a multiple peripheral embolisation of unknown origin is presented. Because of her extreme obesity, some diagnostic procedures could not be performed (CAT), and some were performed with great difficulty (conventional ECHO, DSA of the aorta). Transesophageal echocardiography was the key procedure in the diagnosis of the floating thrombotic mass(More)
