The results of some epidemiological studies point to the presence of an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), particularly atherosclerosis and congestive heart failure (CHF) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). At least 50% of abnormalities remained asymptomatic. Pathological conditions contributing to myocardial dysfunction such as high serum levels of(More)
Cardiovascular pathology is frequent in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction is its common findings. The aim of the study was to assess the systolic and diastolic function of the left ventricle (LV) in SLE patients without clinically evident cardiovascular disease, using pulsed Doppler echocardiography.

Echocardiographic examination and 24-h electrocardiographic Holter monitoring were carried out on 35 patients with nodular rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 35 with non-nodular RA, who were matched with the nodular RA group regarding age, sex and BSA. A further 35 patients with osteoarthrosis and spondyloarthrosis matched, with both RA groups, constituted a(More)
INTRODUCTION Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common clinically relevant arrhythmia and it is strongly associated with stroke. Left atrial appendage (LAA) is considered to be the most often source of thrombotic material. In recent decades a number surgical, percutaneous and hybrid approaches for LAA occlusion have been described revealing very different(More)
BACKGROUND Caseous calcification of mitral annulus is rather rare echocardiographic finding with prevalence of 0.6% in pts. with proven mitral annular calcification and 0.06% to 0.07% in large series of subjects in all ages. Echocardiographic images of caseous calcification are often heterogenous due to calcium and lipid deposits, and the masses show(More)
A study is reported of 63 patients treated in the Cardiology Department, Institute of Internal Diseases, MSW for acute myocardial infarction. They were divided into two groups: 21 patients w treated with intravenous streptokinase infusion and then with intravenous heparin, with simultaneous administration of nitroglycerin.
