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)
OBJECTIVES Routine coagulation tests and bleed-scores fail to identify patients at risk of excessive postoperative drainage following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). We sought to investigate whether lower von Willebrand factor (VWF) and higher ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with a thrombospondin type 1 motif, member 13) are associated(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)
