In general tumours of lipoid origin are benign. A high proportion of cases are mesenchymal neoplasms localised in subcutaneous tissue. Neurological signs related to compression of neural structures by fat within the vertebral canal were first presented in 1975. The lipogenic neoplasms represent 1-4% of spinal tumours, and generally are associated with(More)
BACKGROUND To assess the role of 1H MRS in the detection of changes in cerebral metabolite levels in pyramidal tracts after mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) and to compare metabolite alterations to the clinical status (Glasgow Coma Scale). MATERIAL/METHODS Study group consisted of 25 patients after mild traumatic brain injury, with a score of 11 to 15(More)
BACKGROUND A lot has changed in terms of intervention technique, indications and embolic agents since Duggan introduced embolization to management of postraumatic epistaxis in 1970. Embolization is used in treatment of spontaneous and traumatic epistaxis, palliative tumors and vascular defects, as well as vascularized tumors and juvenile nasopharyngeal(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children. The aim of the study was to evaluate the catabolism of glycoconjugates in saliva of children with type 1 diabetes, by measurement of the activity of N-acetyl-β-D-hexosaminidase (HEX) in their saliva. MATERIAL/METHODS The study was performed in 65 children with type 1(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular diseases are the main causes of morbidity and mortality in kidney transplant recipients. Blood viscosity plays an important role in the development of arteriosclerosis in the general population. Since hematocrit (Ht) and hemoglobin (Hb) values are determinants of blood viscosity, we decided to perform a study to check the possible(More)
AIM The evaluation of usefulness of color Doppler sonography and power Doppler sonography in the diagnostics of thyroid nodules with the low or absent uptake of (99m)Tc-pertechnate. Although scintigraphy is highly sensitive method in the diagnosis of cold nodules it is non-specific in the diagnostics of malignant changes of thyroid. We tried to investigate(More)
AIM The aim of this paper was to evaluate the caliber of the following arteries in the lower extremities: the common femoral artery, superficial femoral artery, popliteal artery, posterior tibial artery and dorsalis pedis artery and to determine the relation of the calibers to age, sex and morphological parameters of the body such as weight, height and BMI(More)
The goal of this work was to assess the effectiveness of endovascular treatment of common and external iliac artery stenosis/occlusion classified according to TASC using a self-expanding stent Jaguar SM. The study group included 95 patients (61 men and 34 women) who underwent treatment for stenosis or occlusion of lower limb arteries at the Department of(More)
BACKGROUND Carcinoma of the pancreas is one of the most malignant tumors. Symptoms are usually nonspecific and insidious, such that the cancer is advanced by the time of diagnosis. The aim of the study was to assess the usefulness of MRI and MRCP in the diagnosis of patients suspected of pancreatic carcinoma and to define the role of these methods in the(More)
BACKGROUND Thyroid hormones could affect renal function, and, on the other hand, renal dysfunction may affect thyroid function. Disturbances of concentrations of thyroid hormones are often associated with thyroid gland enlargement. The aim of the study was to assess the function and morphology of the thyroid (volume and hormones concentration) and kidney(More)
