Endothelial function is impaired in hypertensive patients. Decreased nitric oxide and prostacyclin production as well as increased oxidative stress are involved in this abnormality. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether biomarkers of endothelial dysfunction and oxidative stress have diagnostic value in patients with essential hypertension. We(More)
We sought to determine if atorvastatin lowers blood pressure in patients with previously diagnosed and well-controlled essential arterial hypertension and if this effect could be related to anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects. Among 92 patients with essential arterial hypertension, we studied 56 non-smoking and normolipemic: 39 were randomized to(More)
AIMS The aim of the study was to determine whether a high dose of atorvastatin lowers blood pressure (BP) in normolipemic patients with well controlled primary arterial hypertension and if this effect is associated with alteration of biomarkers of endothelial function and oxidative stress. In this open-label study, normolipemic patients (n=56) were(More)
We describe a case of an 81-year-old man with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), who received a loading dose of clopidogrel (300 mg) and aspirin (ASA) (300 mg) prior to primary coronary intervention of critical left anterior descending coronary artery stenosis. Three days later he developed recurrent acute STEMI due to the in-stent thrombosis(More)
PURPOSE A femoral artery pseudoaneurysm - is the most common complication associated with invasive coronary interventions. The aim of the study was to analyze the effectiveness of various methods used for femoral pseudoaneurysm treatment and to assess how routine use of radial approach leads to reduction of these site complications. METHODS The study(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate whether measurements of hs-C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), endothelin-1 (ET-1), epinephrine (E) and norepinephrine (NE) would provide useful information for the assessment of endothelial dysfunction and sympathetic nervous system activation in a selected group of young, properly treated patients with essential(More)
