Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (AHCM) is a rare form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, occasionally resulting in severe complications. The paper covers the etiology and pathogenesis of AHCM, different imaging methods and characteristic appearance of the disease in each of them. Echocardiography and cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) are known to be the most valuable imaging methods. Moreover, this review presents medical and surgical treatment, as well as the clinical course and prognosis. Despite possible morbid events the overall cardiovascular mortality rate of AHCM patients is low, and the prognosis is relatively optimistic...

Introduction: Incidental pathological findings are frequently found outside the investigated cardiovascular system in cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. Some of these findings might have clinical importance. Aim: To evaluate the prevalence and significance of extracardiac findings (ECFs) in patients referred for CMR. The CMR has the ability to depict ECFs in the visualized thorax and upper abdomen. These incidental lesions can often present a challenge to physicians...

Introduction: Estimation of cardiosurgical intervention risk according to EuroSCORE is an important aspect of cardiosurgery. EuroSCORE allows prediction of the probability of a post-operational fatal outcome. Aim: To estimate the influence of gallbladder condition on the prognosis after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and and the interactions between metabolic background and cardiosurgical intervention risk. Material and methods: We investigated data of 98 patients with unstable angina pectoris or acute myocardial infarction before planned CABG...

Introduction: Sternum closure techniques have been compared regarding biomechanics, efficacy in high-risk patients and prevention of mediastinitis or sternal dehiscence. There are no papers concerning patients' comfort and postoperative rehabilitation rate. Aim: To establish the best surgical closure technique after midline sternotomy regarding the lowest pain level in the postoperative period and the highest rate of postoperative rehabilitation. Material and methods: A retrospective analysis was performed on a group of 100 patients after cardiothoracic procedures which was divided into 3 subgroups according to sternal closure technique based on postoperative thoracic X-ray...

Introduction: Ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a rare but life-threatening complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). There is a paucity of data regarding the natural history of this devastating complication of myocardial infarction in the Middle East region with restricted financial resources and unsolved major health problems. Aim: To evaluate the clinical presentation and in-hospital outcome of patients with post-infarction VSD over a 10-year period in a tertiary center in northwest Iran...

Aim: Coronary endarterectomy (CE) may provide a useful adjunctive technique to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in patients with diffuse coronary artery disease. Nevertheless, the incidence of complications still remains high, long-term results remain unclear, and no risk factors for late mortality have been completely described yet. Material and methods: We retrospectively reviewed 90 consecutive patients (67 ±8.2 years) undergoing isolated CABG in association with CE between 2006 and 2013...

Introduction: Aortic valve replacement (AVR) is the gold standard in treating symptomatic aortic valve defects. To improve the healing process and limit the trauma, the minimally invasive approach was introduced. Aim: To compare the peri- and post-operative results of aortic valve replacement performed via conventional full sternotomy (con-AVR) and of AVR performed via partial upper sternotomy (mini-AVR). Material and methods: The total study population was divided into 2 demographically homogeneous groups: mini-AVR ( n = 74) and con-AVR ( n = 76)...

Introduction: Methotrexate is a cytotoxic agent used in leukemia, and several other cancer types and at lower doses in auto-inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and psoriasis. Macrolide antibiotics are effective against gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. They have anti-inflammatory activities as well. Clarithromycin is a macrolide with anti-inflammatory activity through blockage of the p38 MAPK signal cascade, which is involved in methotrexate-induced pulmonary toxicity...

Ischemic heart disease is a major cause of death and disabilities worldwide. Unfortunately, not all patients are suitable for direct revascularization. Cell-based therapies may be alternative options because of their potential to promote neovascularisation and endothelial repair, improving myocardial perfusion. The success of cell-based therapies depends on the type of implanted stem cells, delivery method and underlying disease. Several different cell populations including bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (MNCs), mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs), CD34+, CD133+, endothelial progenitor cells, adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (ASCs) and stem cells from placenta and umbilical cord have been investigated...

Surgical treatment of severe aortic stenosis offers good early and long-term results, even in elderly patients. Despite the implementation of percutaneous methods for the very high-risk group, surgical valve replacement remains the gold standard. The advanced age of patients should not be the only indicator limiting the possibility of surgery. In this review we present the most important information on the results of aortic stenosis surgical treatment in the groups of older patients. New methods such as percutaneous and minimally invasive methods of surgery are also discussed...

Heart transplantation (HT) is the treatment of choice for patients with advanced heart failure (HF) who remain symptomatic despite optimal medical therapy. Due to the shortage of organs for transplantation and constantly increasing number of patients placed on waiting lists, accurate risk stratification is a crucial element of management in this population. Prognostic scales allow one to evaluate the patient prognosis, estimate the potential benefits of therapy and identify those patients most likely to benefit from advanced methods of treatment...

Tietze's syndrome is a benign, self-limiting arthropathy, without purulent character. The disease most often involves articulations: sternocostal, sternoclavicular, or costochondral joints. The characteristic symptoms are tenderness, pain and edema involving one of the aforementioned joints on one side. Diagnosis of Tietze's syndrome is based on physical examination (increase of palpation tenderness in the affected joint), laboratory tests (increase of inflammatory parameters) and imaging studies (USG, MRI)...

Obesity poses an increasing problem in patients with end-stage heart failure (HF). The most commonly used indicator of obesity is body mass index. The value of this parameter is widely taken into consideration when selecting the best way of treatment for patients with advanced HF. The aim of this paper is to outline the recent knowledge about obesity in the abovementioned group of patients.

Introduction: Use of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) insufflation (CDI) on the surgical field during heart surgery has become widespread, and in some units routine. Aim: To assess the effects of CDI on endothelial dysfunction in a carotid artery model in rabbits. Material and methods: Twelve randomly selected rabbits were divided into two groups. Right carotid arteries of the animals were transected and sutured with running suture technique. Then, 1 l/min CO2 insufflation was initiated with a 45° angle...

Introduction: Primary pulmonary sarcoma (PPS) is a rare type of non-epithelial malignant tumour of the lungs. Lung sarcomas are usually of metastatic character, originating from the primary tumour located in another organ. Pathomorphological diagnosis is difficult and therefore definitive diagnosis is usually determined after surgical treatment. Five-year survival of radical operated patients is 42-69%. Aim: To evaluate prognostic factors in PPS. Material and methods: Twenty-two patients who underwent surgical treatment between 1994 and 2009 were analysed...
