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)
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)
INTRODUCTION The term "penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer" (PAU) of the aorta describes the condition in which ulceration of an aortic atherosclerotic lesion penetrates the internal elastic lamina into media. PAU is a high-risk lesion due to its deleterious effects on the integrity of aortic wall, with potentially fatal outcome. CASE REPORT A patient 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)
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)
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)
UNLABELLED The treadmill test combined with myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is a commonly used technique in the assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, there is a group of patients who may not be able to undergo the treadmill test. Pharmacologic stress testing is increasingly utilized for stress perfusion imaging and currently accounts for(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively and intraindividually compare breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 1.5 Tesla (T) and 3.0T. METHODS A prospective intraindividual Ethics Committee- approved study was performed in 31 women (average age 58.6±12.3 years), with 114 lesions (9 benign, 105 breast cancers; 24 patients with unilateral and 7 with bilateral cancers).(More)
Background In order to improve health care of patients with acute myocardial infarction, forming of a proper cardiological network in different parts of a particular region becomes a necessity. At our institute, we started to treat STEMI in cathlabs in April 2002. In the beginning this care has been utilized during the day, and after the 1. 12. 2008, we(More)
INTRODUCTION Telecommunications and information technology provide clinical care at distance by means of telemedicine. Hospitals and other health care facilities use medical telemetry devices for monitoring patients' vital signs. These portable devices are used for measuring patient vital signs such as ECG, blood pressure, heart rate, respiration,(More)
