[TRANSMYOCARDIAL LASER REVASCULARIZATION. FACTS AND QUESTIONS]

SZÉKELY László

[Transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMLR) is a relatively new technique for the treatment of patients with angina refractory to other medical interventions, such as CABG or PTCA. The laser drills channels through the myocardial wall into the cavity of the ventricle. While the mechanism of action is still debated, clinical data show incentive results suggesting favorable outcome for patients. In the article, the published clinical and experimental data relevant to theoretical mechanisms and clinical results are reviewed.]

[PEDIATRIC ONCOLOGY IN HUNGARY IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM]

SCHULER Dezső

[Pediatric malignancies are the most frequent causes of death among 1-15 year old children. These children are treated in 10 pediatric oncology centres in Hungary with therapy based on the same protocols. The author emphasises the importance of late side effects of the therapy, especially the cardiotoxicity, decreased fertility, secondary tumors and the neuropsychologic sequelae. In pediatric oncology, regular checkups of all affected children is the best way for secondary prevention. Molecular genetic studies and minimal residual disease prove to be valuable prognostic factors. New trends of therapy based on better knowledge of molecular biology and immunological characteristics of tumor cells are also mentioned.]
