Rotational atherectomy in everyday clinical practice. Association of Cardiovascular Interventions of the Polish Society of Cardiology (Asocjacja Interwencji Sercowo-Naczyniowych Polskiego Towarzystwa Kardiologicznego - AISN PTK): Expert opinion.
uś S Abstract The common use of stents, including antiproliferative drug-eluting stents, has been a major breakthrough in invasive cardiology. Nowadays, a change in the clinical presentation of patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is observed. The typical clinical characteristics now include advanced age, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, heart failure, and multilevel atherosclerosis. Age, diabetes, and chronic kidney disease are the main predictors of coronary artery calcifications. Severe coronary artery calcifications are the main factor limiting the efficacy of PCI. Successful stent ...

Catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation: current status, techniques, outcomes and challenges.
Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common human arrhythmia. Interventional treatment with catheter ablation is meanwhile an established technique that is increasingly applied and has become one of the main treatment modalities in patients with AF. Ablation results in significant improvement of symptoms and quality of life. There is up to now no clear evidence of an impact of the procedure on hard clinical endpoints except in patients with heart failure who seem to benefit significantly from ablation. Cornerstone of the procedure is achievement of pulmonary vein isolation. Radiofrequency energy is the ma...

Do we differ in indications and demographics in cardiac resynchronization recipients in Poland? Insights from the European CRT Survey II Registry.
CONCLUSIONS: As far as demographic data from the survey is concerned, it can be generally assumed that patients receiving CRT were mainly men with depressed left ventricular ejection fraction (mostly less than 35%), with left bundle branch block (LBBB), and an intrinsic QRS duration of more than 150 ms. This was observed for both Poland and other European countries and fulfils the guidance criteria for CRT implantation. On the other hand, some devices were implanted in patients beyond the guideline recommendations. For these procedures, the decision regarding CRT implantation relies mainly on the physicians' experience. ...

Inflammatory markers and left ventricular diastolic dysfunction in a family-based population study.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Heart failure affects patients with normal left ventricular systolic function (heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, HFPEF) and those with reduced ejection fraction (HFREF). The treatment of HFPEF remains an unresolved issue. AIM: The purpose of this study was to determinate the relationship between inflammatory markers and left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) in a family-based population study. METHODS: In 303 participants from the general population (55% women, median age 49 years and 45% men, median age 40 years) we assessed echocardiography examination and meas...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Poland is a country of high cardiovascular risk. Because the depression was found to be a predictor of coronary artery disease and the prevalence of depressive symptoms raised worldwide, so the monitoring of depressive symptoms in a population is desirable. AIM: to evaluate the prevalence of depressive symptoms (DS) in relation to the socio-demographic status, and selected types of cardiovascular diseases in the adult Polish population. METHODS: A country representative random sample of 2413 subjects, aged 18-79, was examined in 2011. Rates of self-reported cardiovascular conditions ...

How to reverse bleeding in patients on direct oral anticoagulants?
Abstract The direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), or non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs), including dabigatran, which inhibits thrombin, and rivaroxaban, apixaban, edoxaban, and betrixaban, which inhibit coagulation factor Xa, are associated with similar or lower risk of bleeding compared with warfarin. The need for reversal of their anticoagulant effect may occur in patients with life-threatening bleeding or those requiring urgent surgery. Currently, the only specific reversal agent for dabigatran, idarucizumab is widely available, while andexanet alfa, which reverses factor Xa inhibitors, was app...

Secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases: current state of the art.
g; G Abstract Prevention strategies for cardiac events depend of the risk for such an event. A very high risk is defined by a risk>10% over 10 years. For example, a patient with known coronary artery disease has such a very high risk to die. However a patient with diabetes and severe hypertension without known coronary artery disease carries the same risk. Here, secondary prevention and primary prevention overlap. Prevention guidelines include a number of general recommendations such as changes in behavior, smoking intervention strategies, nutrition, body weight, and physical activity. Drug treatment-based prev...

Abstract The aim of the paper was to present achievements of Polish physicians in the field of heart diseases in the times when cardiology was still not established as a separate branch of medical specialization, that is in the last decades of 19th and the opening decades of 20th centuries. The article is based on results previously delivered in historical works of other researchers and on the original texts coming from the era which is the subject of present discussion. The narration is focused on the main topics of scientific exploration related to heart diseases - the subject of interest for physicians who were...
