On sweet undeniable feeling of power of international intellectual feudalism, bias, discrimination, censoring and theft
We present two rare cases of very late stent thrombosis occurring beyond ten years post initial drug eluting stent deployment.
Our results of surgical treatment of multi-valve heart defects with infective endocarditis showed the efficacy of developed complex preoperative and intraoperative measures in surgical treatment of IE. This new treatment approach is associated with significant improvement of left ventricular function and low mortality rate.
Candidemia was an uncommon infectious complication, but associated with a significant mortality. Our data support the identification of high-risk cardiac surgery patients who may benefit from empirical antifungal therapy.
Patients with replaced heart valve submitted to echocardiographic examination may have symptoms related either to valvular malfunction or ventricular dysfunction from different causes. Clinical examination is not reliable in a prosthetic valve evaluation and the main information regarding its function could be obtained using different cardiac ultrasound modalities. This review provides a description of echocardiographic and Doppler techniques useful in evaluation of prosthetic heart valves.
Thus our study demonstrated accesibility of surgical care for elderly patients is the highest for the urban areas with specialized cardiac surgery centers, where patients referred from rural regions.
The following protocol is intended to be a useful and practical guide to empirical and pathogen directed antimicrobial therapy of infective endocarditis (IE) in adult patients
In this study, we sought to study the structure of newly diagnosed CHD and the age of the diagnosis within Kyrgyz Republic.
The present report describes one strategy used for cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and to help wean a patient from mechanical ventilation, with prohibitive comorbidities that contra-indicate surgical mitral valve repair, using respiratory and peripheral muscle training associated with positive pressure ventilation
