Left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy is a strong predictive factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. LV structure and function are influenced by many variables, including genetic background. The potential role of gene polymorphisms of different components of the renin angiotensin system remains controversial. The aim of this study was to determine(More)
BACKGROUND Aldosterone plays an important role in development of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and myocardial fibrosis. We assessed the influence of the T-344C polymorphism of aldosterone synthase - the rate-limiting enzyme in aldosterone biosynthesis - on the structure of the left ventricle in young normotensive men. DESIGN AND METHODS The population(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effectiveness of percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy using Rotarex S in the treatment of acute limb ischemia (ALI) in infrainguinal occlusions in a retrospective study of patients treated in our institution. METHODS In this study, we identified a total of 147 ALI patients that underwent mechanical thrombectomy using Rotarex S at(More)
