Antagonisti aldosteronskih receptorjev in srčno popuščanje = Aldosterone receptor antagonists in chronic heart failure by Nadja Ružič-Medvešček( )

2 editions published in 2010 in Slovenian and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronic heart failure, a syndrome with increasing incidence and prevalence, represents the main cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. It is a complication of spectrum of etiologically various diseases which, in syndrome progression, include complex pathophysiological mechanisms. Newer data indicate that aldosterone plays important and partly from kidney independent role in heart failure progression. Binding to mineralocorticoide receptors aldosterone causes direct harmful effects to myocardium and vasculature. Aldosterone is coresponsible for cardiac hypertrophy, necrosis, fibrosis, cardiac remodeling and endothelial dysfunction, factors known to contribute tothe pathophysiology of development and progression of heart failure. Clinical and detailed mechanistic studies performed by the end of millennium, have proved mineralocorticoid receptor antagonism to be a key component of CH F treatment regimen. It seems reasonable to expect aldosterone receptor antagonists to become a part of a new therapeutic paradigm along the whole range of cardiovascular diseases, together with already established ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers and beta blockers

Predoperativna ocena kronične aortne regurgitacije = Preoperative assessment of chronic aortic regurgitation by Nadja Ružič-Medvešček( )

1 edition published in 1999 in Slovenian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the management of patients with chronic aortic regurgitation and when selecting of the most appropriate time for surgical procedures, several facts should be considered. The atricle emphasises a comprehensive evaluation of clinical and echo-Doppler parameters. Aortic regurgitation leads to a progressive decline in left ventricle pump function secondary to chronnic volume overload and excessive afterload, as well as left ventricle contractiledysfunction if the disease is prolonged. Sometimes, subclinical left ventricle conctactile dysfunction may develop when the left ventricle injection fraction remains normal, but it is generally improved after valve replacement. Asymptomatic patients with normal left ventricle ejection fraction have an excellent long-term prognosis with vasodilator therapy for afterload reduction. Valve replacement in symptomatic patients with mild to moderately depressed left ventricle pump function improves survival over medically treated patients with aortic regurgitation. Severe preoperative contractile dysfunction is associated with persistent left ventricle dilatation and dysfunction, often resulting in postoperative congestive heart failure and death
Tkivna doplerska ehokardiografija = Tissue Doppler echocardiography by Janez Tasič( )

1 edition published in 1999 in Slovenian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tissue Doppler echocardiography is a modification of the conventional colour Doppler technology, which is used for the measurement of cardiac tissue velocities. Tissue velocities are considerably lower, but with the amplitudes which are much higher than those recorded from blood flow. Tissue Doppler echocardiography has the potential to assess the contractions and relaxations of the left and right ventricles, the rate of myocardial thickening, and transmural velocity gradients, and can also be used to measure systolic and diastolic time intervals on a regional basis. Its clinical utility in these and other less frequent indications has yet to be confirmed
Predoperativna ocena kronične mitralne regurgitacije = Preoperative assessment of cronic mitral regurgitation by Nadja Ružič-Medvešček( )

1 edition published in 1999 in Slovenian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the management of patients with chronic mitral regurgitation and selection of the most appropriate time for surgical interention in these patients, several facts discussed in the article should be considered. Evaluation on thebasis of clinical and echo-Doppler parameters is emphasised. Mitral regurgitation leads to an eccentric hypertrophy and progressive decline in left ventricle pump function secondary to contractile dysfunction. Patients with a normal left ventricle pump function and a reversible contractile dysfunction have a favourable long-term postoperative death becouse of the persistent left ventricle dysfunction, but the survival rate is improved with surgical therapy in comparison with medical therapy. Mitral valve reconstruction preserves the left ventricle function and reduces mortality andcomorbid complications in comparison with conventional mitral valve replacement. Mitral valve reconstruction shoul be the procedure of choice in patients with reduced preoperative left ventricle function

Gibljivi trombi v srcu - prikaz dveh primerov = Floating thrombi in the heart - two cases( )

1 edition published in 2000 in Slovenian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Floating cardiac thrombi are peripheral and pelvic venous clots which, on their way to the lungs, are accidentally lodged in the heart. They are rare but clinically significant because of the high incidence of massive pulmonary embolism and high mortality. Two patients, one with a snake-like thrombus in the right atrium and one with a snake-like thrombus in the left atrium stuck in the open foramen ovale, are presented and discussed. The significance of early echocardiographic examination in suspicion of a pulmonary embolism is stressed. If there are floating emboli in the heart, emergency care is required, but there is no clear consensus regarding the optimal theapeutic approach
