INTRODUCTION Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained arrhythmia. Diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN) is a frequent complication of diabetes mellitus and has a negative impact on the cardiovascular system. There are no data about the occurrence of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) in the population with DAN. MATERIAL AND METHODS We(More)
UNLABELLED Cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN) is one of the most common chronic complications of diabetes. It is defined as an impaired control of the cardiovascular system by the autonomic nervous system. The gold standard in detecting it is the Ewing test suite. The usefulness of other methods is still a subject of research. AIM The aim of this(More)
BACKGROUND Endothelial dysfunction is an independent predictor of future cardiac events. MATERIAL/METHODS We evaluated the relationship between flow-mediated dilation (FMD) in brachial artery and coronary risk factors in 93 patients (70 males, mean age: 62 ± 8 years) with ACS treated with primary angioplasty (PCI). The patients were divided into 2(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased risk of thromboembolic complications. One of the markers of the increased risk of hypercoagulable state is platelet hyperreactivity. The aim of the study was to assess impact of arrhythmia on platelet reactivity. METHODS The study included 36 (mean age 48,3; range 21-60) male patients with lone atrial(More)
INTRODUCTION Implantation of an aortic-bifemoral prosthesis is characterised by a high (> 5%) rate of perioperative cardiovascular events. The main aim of the study is to demonstrate the usefulness of the determination of NT-proBNP concentration as a method of risk stratification of left ventricular dysfunction in patients subjected to surgery for(More)
UNLABELLED Right ventricle outflow tract (RVOT) is an alternative pacing site to right ventricle apex (RVA). Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) is a new method for intracardiac structures visualization. THE AIM is comparison of functional effects of DDD permanent ventricular pacing in patients with lead implanted in RVA or in RVOT with the use of(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic renal failure leads to structural changes and cardiac functional abnormalities known as uremic cardiomyopathy. Eliminating excess water and improving the composition of the inner environment leads to at least partial cardiac function improvement, which is reflected primarily in favorable changes in left ventricular indices. The aim of our(More)
INTRODUCTION Atrial fibrillation is the most common chronic arrhythmia. Due to diagnostic difficulties, the exact prevalence of silent atrial fibrillation is not precisely defined. AIM The main aim of the present study was to assess the prevalence of asymptomatic atrial fibrillation and the relation between clinical status and presence of symptoms of(More)
The aim of the present study is to analyse quantitatively the potential reduction of doses to the eye lens and the hands of an operator and a nurse by the use of a pelvic lead blanket during coronary angiography (CA) and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) procedures. Thermoluminescent dosimeters were used to assess dose levels to the left(More)
