The application of macrophytes in freshwater monitoring is still relatively limited and studies on their intercalibration and sources of variation are required. Therefore, the aim of the study was to compare selected indices and metrics based on macrophytes and to quantify their variability. During the STAR project, several aspects influencing uncertainty… (More)
Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) has been implicated in adhesion of colorectal and pancreatic cancer cells (of the SW480 and PSN-1 line, respectively) to the peritoneal mesothelium. It has been demonstrated that ICAM-1 expression increases with senescence in some cell types, however, the significance of this phenomenon in the context of malignant… (More)
We examined the effect of resveratrol (RVT) and its two derivatives (3,3′,4,4′-tetrahydroxy-trans-stilbene and 3,3′,4,4′,5,5′-hexahydroxy-trans-stilbene) on human peritoneal mesothelial cell (HPMC)-dependent angiogenesis in vitro. To this end, angiogenic activity of endothelial cells (HUVEC, HMVEC, and HMEC-1) was monitored upon their exposure to… (More)
BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of aortic diseases, both aneurysmal and occlusive, is associated with the occurrence of local ischemic/hypoxic conditions, but the genetic factors that differentiate the predisposition to specific types of aortic diseases are largely unknown. In this study, the functional variants in genes involved in the hypoxia signaling… (More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationship between the biomechanical properties and the structure of elastic components in different veins used for vascular reconstruction. DESIGN In vitro experimental study. MATERIAL AND METHODS Groups of 30 samples of incompetent saphenous veins (rSV), competent saphenous veins (cSV) and femoral veins (FVs) were compared… (More)
Blunt trauma of the neck caused by a seatbelt may cause dissection with intramural hematoma of the internal carotid artery. The following case report discusses the differential diagnosis and the potential of endovascular treatment of symptomatic intramural hematoma of the internal carotid artery.
An inadequate selenium level is supposed to be a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. However little is known about variation of the genes encoding selenium-containing proteins that would confirm the causality in these diseases. The aim of this study was to analyze the relationships between two functional variants of selenoprotein P gene (SEPP1… (More)
The present report describes a case of type III endoleak from a tear in the fabric of a Zenith bifurcated stent-graft approximately 6 months after implantation. The reason of the fabric tear was unknown. The complication was successfully treated by aortouniiliac stent-graft implantation followed by creation of a femorofemoral bypass.
BACKGROUND Peritoneal adhesions are the most common complication of the abdominal surgery. Normal saline is frequently used to rinse the peritoneal cavity during abdominal surgery, although there is no well-established data describing effect of such procedure on the process of formation of peritoneal adhesions. METHODS Effect of 0.9% NaCl solution on… (More)
BACKGROUND Peritoneal mesothelial cells lining the peritoneal cavity play a primary role in prevention of formation of peritoneal adhesions, which depends mainly on their fibrinolytic activity. During surgical procedures, the abdominal cavity is in most cases rinsed with normal saline solution, which may modify the fibrinolytic activity of the peritoneal… (More)
