BACKGROUND/AIM Treadmill test combined with myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) is a commonly used technique in the assessment of coronary artery disease. There are many patients, however, who may not be able to undergo treadmill test. Such patients would benefit from pharmacological stress procedures combined with MPS. The most commonly used(More)
Severe calcification of the ascending aorta (porcelain aorta) is a very difficult condition in cardiac surgery because of a high embolization potential during the process of cannulation, aortic cross-clamping and a particular difficulty to suture the proximal anastomosis. We described a case of a 68-year-old female referred to our Institute due to unstable(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM In our Intensive Coronary Care Unit (CCU) a specific scoring system named the AMIS_NS was developed both for prediction of mortality in patients with acute myocardial infarction and for evaluation of the quality of work. One of the most important variables of the AMIS_NS system is the variable Jung which stands for the interrelationship(More)
UNLABELLED INTRODUCTION According to the published guidelines for the management of acute coronary syndromes (ACS), treatment of acute ST-elevated myocardial infarction is based on rapid revascularization, either mechanical or pharmacological. Pharmacological revascularization consists of fibrinolytic therapy with antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy. In(More)
INTRODUCTION Bilateral coronary artery fistulae to pulmonary artery with ventricular tachycardia have not yet been described in the literature. CASE OUTLINE A case of a 23-year-old male patient who was treated at our clinic for recurrent ventricular tachycardia is presented. The patient was born with six fingers on his left hand, which was surgically(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The last decade of the 20th century brought up a significant development in the field of minimally invasive approaches to the valvular heart surgery. Potential benefits of this method are: good esthetic appearance, reduced pain, reduction of postoperative hemorrhage and incidence of surgical site infection, shorter postoperative intensive(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The coronary angiography provides information on the anatomical state of the coronary tree, while myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPI) facilitates the evaluation of the grade of ischaemia that a particular stenosis produces. The purpose of MPI is to detect the coronary stenosis that provokes the ischaemia and is termed the "culprit(More)
INTRODUCTION Late stent thrombosis is a serious complication after stent implantation and it can lead to the development of acute myocardial infarction or death. A CASE REPORT A 43-year-old patient was admitted to our clinic to coronary care unit. He was diagnosed with acute ST elevation myocardial reinfarction of inferoposterior localization and with(More)
Development of pseudoaneurysm from an infected carotid prosthetic patch after carotid endarterectomy is extremely rare and is very challenging from the perspective of surgical and medical treatment. This article describes the case of a 65-year-old patient presenting with the signs of wound infection and recurrent bleeding in the region of the right carotid(More)
