Melatonin increases sleepiness, decreases core temperature, and increases peripheral temperature in humans. Melatonin may produce these effects by activating peripheral receptors or altering autonomic activity. The latter hypothesis was investigated in 16 supine subjects. Three conditions were created by using bright light and exogenous melatonin: normal(More)
The objective of this study was to assess the clinical and financial outcomes of intraoperative cell salvage (ICS) during abdominal aortic surgery. In this study, 90 patients were operated on with the use of ICS (group 1, prospective) and 90 patients without ICS (group 2, historical control). According to the type of operation, the patients were subdivided(More)
Alloogenous blood and/or corresponding haemoproduct transfusion is an efficient and relatively safe supportive treatment. Despite the fact that pre transfusion investigation of both patients and donors ensure high degree of safety of this type of treatment, occurrence of adverse haemotherapy effects is possible and often unpredictable. Acute haemolytic(More)
Despite the application of new antiplatelet drugs (prasugrel and ticagrelor), dual antiplatelet therapy with clopidogrel and aspirin remains the standard for patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, especially in countries of low socioeconomic status. Regardless of the proven benefits, numerous studies have shown(More)
Although melatonin has an important physiological role in the facilitation of sleep, its precise mechanism of action is not clear. To investigate the potential contribution of melatonin to influence cardiac autonomic activity in the evening, 16 young healthy subjects participated in a repeated measures design where cardiac autonomic activity, heart rate and(More)
BACKGROUND Most recent publications have shown that the recombinant form of activated factor VII (rFVIIa; NovoSeven, Novo Nordisk A/S, Bagsværd, Denmark) induces excellent hemostasis in patients with severe intractable bleeding caused by trauma and major surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of rFVIIa on the treatment of(More)
We report the case of 64-year-old female patient with pulmonary embolism and bilateral femoropopliteal deep vein thrombosis caused by heparin-induced thrombocytopenia type II (HIT II) resistant to danaparoid sodium and subsequently administered lepirudin in whom a single late plasmapheresis performed on day 6 of the initiation of treatment of HIT reversed(More)
BACKGROUND Kidd antibodies are very heterogeneous and difficult to detect. They have been frequently implicated in delayed hemolytic transfusion reactions (DHTRs). CASE REPORT A 64 year old female (6 pregnancies, 2 deliveries, 4 abortions) with none red cell (RBC) transfusions in the history was admitted to hospital due to pneumonia and severe anemia. On(More)
A variety of operative approaches and protective adjuncts have been used in thoracoabdominal aneurysm (TAA) repair to minimize the major complications of perioperative death and spinal cord ischemia. There is no consensus with respect to the optimal approach. We present 118 surgically treated patients over a 10-year period. The present study reviews our(More)
INTRODUCTION Radical operative treatment of abdominal tumours closely related to major blood vessels often demands complex vascular procedures. OBJECTIVE The aim of this paper was to present elementary principles and results of the complex procedures, based on 46 patients operated on at the Institute for Cardiovascular Diseases, Clinical Centre of Serbia,(More)
