On the case of 62 year old patient with diabetes type 2 complicated by diabetic nephropathy, we present diagnostic and therapeutic problems of severe nephrotic syndrome caused by membranous nephropathy confirmed by renal biopsy superimposed on diabetic nephropathy. Special attention was paid to the difficulties in achievement the remission of nephrotic(More)
The aim of the study was the assessment of the influence of trimetazidine (TMZ) on echocardiography parameters and oxidative stress markers in hemodialyzed patients with coronary artery disease. The studies were carried out in 9 patients group before and after 3 months of TMZ treatment in doses 3 x 20 mg. Additionally we measured MDA concentration in the(More)
This paper refers to selected reports on nephrology and renal dialysis therapy presented on the XXXVIII Congress of European Renal Association--European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA), held in 2001 in Vienna. Special attention was paid to diagnosis and therapy of renal anaemia, calcium-phosphate metabolism, Fabry's disease and vascular(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study was the assessment of occurrence of microalbuminuria (MI) and selected biochemical atherosclerosis risk factors in the group of potentially healthy men. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the studied group were 200 men in mean age 28.7 +/- 8.1 years. In the first part of the study all participants filled environmental inquiry(More)
The head up tilt test is a worthy of acknowledgment and widely accepted tool used in diagnosing patients with syncope of unknown origin. In some cases tilting provokes asystole lasting even several tens of seconds. Not long ago this kind of vasovagal reaction was being associated with appearance of syncope combined with body injures. The prognostic(More)
In 19 chronically hemodialysed patients (11M + 8F, mean age 52 +/- 15 yrs) with secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHP), selected markers of bone turnover in the course of pulsative treatment with alphacalcidol were evaluated. Alphakalcidol was given 3 times per week after hemodialysis. Every 3-rd month of therapy we measured serum concentration of procollagen(More)
Intradialytic hypotension is a frequent complication of hemodialysis. Its etiology is complicated and unclear. Preventive and therapeutic procedures include modification of lifestyle as well as parameters of hemodialysis procedure. Due to multifactorial etiology of this complication we should pay attention to proper prophylactic and in the case of its(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the relationship between some psychological variables and biochemical and inflammatory risk factors for atherosclerosis in healthy men. Studied group, 70 potentially healthy men randomly selected from the group of 200 potentially healthy men previously screened for atherosclerosis risk factors, workers of state(More)
Severe heart arrhythmias are common in patients with irreversible renal failure on chronic hemodialysis. Late ventricular potentials revealed on the signal-averaged electrocardiogram were found to have predictive value of sudden cardiac death in general population of patients with coronary artery disease or nonischemic cardiomyopathy. The value of this(More)
