BACKGROUND In Poland, mortality and morbidity rates due to ischaemic heart disease (IHD) remain high and concern the whole population. An interesting issue is rapid development of IHD in some younger subjects and uncertain treatment outcomes in this patient subset. Premature cessation of professional activity, along with worsening of quality of life due to(More)
INTRODUCTION Infective endocarditis (IE) is still connected with high operative mortality. Inflammatory markers are commonly used in monitoring patient clinical condition. Respiratory burst and reactive oxygen species (ROS) are the main way of pathogen elimination. Specificity of this process in the aspect of bacterial infection is the key for correlation(More)
UNLABELLED Severe aortic regurgitation and stenosis are urgent indication for aortic valve replacement in patients with left ventricular dysfunction, however the effect of cardiac surgery may differ in both groups. The aim of the study was to evaluate the early changes of haemodynamic parameters of heart: ejection fraction, endsystolic and enddiastolic left(More)
Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is a common congenital anomaly that is usually treated in infancy or childhood. Adult patients with coarctation have a high incidence of associated cardiac disorders, including valve diseases, atrial fibrillation and ischemic heart disease. Most patients with uncorrected CoA die before reaching the age of 50 from complications(More)
276 patients aged 65 years or more, who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting in the Department of Cardiac Surgery, Medical University of Łódź in 1999 and 2000, were assessed. The analyzed group consisted of 193 men (69.93%) and 83 women (30.07%). The mean age of the patients was 69.14 years (+/- 3.42, age range from 65 to 79 years), 18 (6.52%) patients(More)
Cardiac lipomas are extremely rare tumors, they usually remain asymptomatic and are detected incidentally, mostly during autopsies. In symptomatic patients, the diagnosis can easily be made by echocardiography, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging. We report a case of pericardial lipoma found unexpectedly during coronary artery bypass grafting(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the thesis is the evaluation of efficacy of surgical treatment for complex valvular heart diseases. An inclusion criterion to this analysis was the performance of a mitral valve replacement (MVR) and aortic valve replacement (AVR) for an artificial valve and a tricuspid valve replacement or plastic operation (TVR or pl. TV). Such(More)
