This prospective, open-label multicenter study was conducted to assess the pharmacokinetics of Biolimus A9 after elution from BioMatrix II coronary stents. Recent clinical trials have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of Biolimus A9 eluted from different stent platforms. To date, the pharmacokinetics of Biolimus A9 in patients following the deployment of(More)
AIM To compare clinical efficacy and safety of stents eluting limus drugs from biodegradable polymer - Nobori, or durable polymer - Cypher. METHODS AND RESULTS From May to August 2006, 107 patients with 142 coronary artery lesions were treated with either Nobori, Biolimus A9 eluting stent (54) or Cypher, Sirolimus eluting stent (53) in five centres. The(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Up-to-date treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AIM) has been based on as early as possible establishment of circulation in ischemic myocardium whether by the use of fibrinolythic therapy and/or urgent coronary intervention which significantly changes the destiny of patients with AMI, but also increases the risk of bleeding. The aim of(More)
Rhabdomyosarcoma accounts for 20% of primary malignant cardiac tumours. We describe a woman with cardiac rhabdomyosarcoma. She had loss of appetite, loss of weight, and symptoms of heart failure. A mobile tumour in the left atrium, entering the left ventricle during diastole, was detected by transthoracic echocardiography. The tumour was removed surgically(More)
INTRODUCTION The optimal revascularization strategy for unprotected left main coronary disease (ULMCD) is the subject of ongoing debate and patients with ULMCD still represent a challenge for interventionalist, especially in the setting of an acute coronary syndome (ACS). CASE REPORT We presented two cases of percutaneous treatment of ULMCD in the(More)
INTRODUCTION Elevated glucose levels on admission in many emergency conditions, including acute myocardial infarction (AMI), have been identified as a predictor of hospital mortality. OBJECTIVE Since there are no data in the literature related to stress hyperglycaemia (SH) in patients with both AIM and temporary electrical cardiac pacing, we aimed to(More)
Implantable loop recorder is a diagnostic method in cardiology, having a role in revealing the cause of recurrent unexplained syncope. For automatic recording, the device is equipped with bradycardia and tachycardia programmable options. Battery capacity is 14 months. The aim of the study was to investigate the use of loop recorder in the diagnosis of(More)
The first data of Lyme carditis, a relatively rare manifestation of Lyme disease, were published in eighties of the last century. Clinical manifestations include syncope, light-headedness, fainting, shortness of breath, palpitations, and/or chest pain. Atrioventricular (AV) electrical block of varying severity presents the most common conduction disorder in(More)
