Pulmonary embolectomy is a treatment option in selected patients with high-risk pulmonary embolism (PE). Efficiency of thrombus degradation in PE largely depends on the architecture of its fibrin network, however little is known about its determinants. We present the case of a 56-year-old woman with high-risk PE and proximal deep-vein thrombosis, whose(More)
The traditional approach to cavoatrial thrombus excision requires median sternotomy, cardiopulmonary bypass with or without hypothermia and circulatory arrest and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We describe a transoesophageal echocardiography guided balloon catheter assisted technique for cavoatrial thrombectomy that avoids(More)
Pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) is a curative therapeutic approach in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). The location-dependent structural differences of thrombotic material found in pulmonary arteries in CTEPH are poorly investigated. We present the case of a 47-year-old woman with antiphospholipid syndrome, diabetes(More)
This paper presents the main goal of the " Sudden Cardiac Death risk stratification based on functional assessment of autonomic nervous system with the use of Holter methods " project, which is development of unified, generally available, extendable, open-source software platform for ECG signal analysis from numerous types of Holter recorders, allowing for(More)
The ultrastructural features of the serotoninergic innervation of the rat dentate gyrus in normal adults and in animals receiving raphe nuclear area transplants was investigated using an antibody to serotonin (5-HT). Neonatal rats received a lesion of the fimbria-fornix and entorhinal cortex. Three days later, a portion of embryonic (E-16-18) raphe nuclear(More)
