BACKGROUND Significant (>70%) extracranial stenosis of the internal carotid artery (ICA) is a known risk factor for brain damage in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). There is no clear evidence of the low and moderate ICA stenoses influence on the neurophysiologic status of patients after CABG. This(More)
BACKGROUND Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) may contribute to the development of postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence of early and long-term POCD after CABG in coronary heart disease patients with and without preoperative MCI. METHODS The(More)
The purpose of the study was a comparative evaluation of a neurological and neuropsychological status of patients with and without carotid artery stenoses less than 50% after coronary artery bypass grafting. The study involved 65 patients divided into two groups: the first group included 35 patients (mean age 56.2±5.7 years) without carotid artery stenoses,(More)
AIM To study predictors of moderate cognitive disorders (MCD) in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 54 men with CPD andDM2 (mean age 56.8 ± 4.5 years). Standard medical examination was supplemented by the assessment of cognitive status, characteristics of lipid and(More)
ment of ischemic heart disease (IHD), improves patients’ quality of life and increases longevity [1, 2, 9]. However, impairments to higher mental functions can occur during the post-operative period of patients undergoing CB [3, 4]. The vast majority of previous studies assessing the influences of CB on cognitive capacities have addressed the long-term(More)
We studied 40 men aged 26 - 59 years (mean age 49.0 +/- 1.9 years) with hypertensive disease (HD) and found that therapy based on the use of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor perindopril in young and middle aged patients with stage I and II HD appeared to be not only one of effective methods of correction of elevated arterial pressure (AP) but also of(More)
AIM To study the clinical significance of the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) in patients with stroke. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 374 post-stroke patients. The state of peripheral arteries was assessed using CAVI and the ankle-shoulder index (ASI). RESULTS AND CONCLUSION The pathological CAVI (>9.0) was identified in 45.4% patients, the(More)
The aim of the present work was to undertake a comparative evaluation of changes in the neurological and neuropsychological status of patients with and without carotid artery stenoses of less than 50% after coronary bypass. A total of 65 patients were assessed, in two groups: group 1 did not have carotid artery stenosis and included 35 patients (mean age(More)
AIM To assess the relationship between the severity of stenosis of the carotid arteries, the level of female sex hormones and markers of subclinical inflammation in women with ischemic stroke (IS). MATERIAL AND METHODS Two hundred and eleven women (mean age 68.9±9.23 years) were examined. A history of cardiovascular disease, previous cardiovascular(More)
We studied the effect of rosuvastatin on the development of early postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) in patients after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). One hundred nine men aged 45-70 year was divided into two groups. Group 1 comprised 69 patients (mean age 56.8 ± 5.2 years) who were given 20 mg of rosuvastatin for 10-14 days before CABG and(More)
