The clinical applications of contrast echocardiography.
Ultrasound contrast agents are approved for opacification of the heart chambers and to improve endocardial border definition. The myocardial contrast enhancement is also very useful for assessing
The Use of Geoinformation Technology, Augmented Reality and Gamification in the Urban Modeling Process
TLDR
The authors propose to increase the level of residents’ activity by using gamification tools adapted to the cultural, historical, economic and social reality of the given city as well as precise 3D modelling techniques and VR/AR tools.
Impact of Vitamin D on the Cardiovascular System in Advanced Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Dialysis Patients
TLDR
Large randomized trials are required to analyze whether supplementation of vitamin D may affect outcomes and whether it is safe to be used in CKD patients.
Long-Term Outcomes of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy—a Single-Center, Retrospective Study
TLDR
Isolated LSG provides fairly good effects in a long-term follow-up with mean %EWL at 51.1%, and more than half of the subjects observe improvement in AHT and T2DM.
Heart function disturbances in chronic kidney disease – echocardiographic indices
TLDR
It seems that TVI, E, E/A and E/E’ are good instruments for the early detection of left ventricular hypertrophy and diastolic dysfunction in CKD patients.
The Influence of Inflammation on Anemia in CKD Patients
TLDR
It seems that anti-cytokine and anti-oxidative treatment strategies may be the future of pharmacological interventions aiming at the treatment of inflammation-associated hyporesponsiveness to ESA.
Solving “Smart City” Transport Problems by Designing Carpooling Gamification Schemes with Multi-Agent Systems: The Case of the So-Called “Mordor of Warsaw”
TLDR
This article attempts to solve transport problems in a smart city’s office district by utilizing gamification that incentivizes the carpooling system by utilizing a “serious game” variation of urban games.
The Impact of CKD on Uremic Toxins and Gut Microbiota
TLDR
The results of studies have confirmed the altered composition and functions of gut microbial community in chronic kidney disease and it seems that dietary interventions comprising prebiotics, probiotics, and synbiotics could pose a promising strategy in the management of uremic toxins in CKD.
