Morphological and functional parameters of the cardiovascular system in acromegalic patients: impact of body composition

Sagova Ivana , Dragula Milan , Mokaň Marian , Vanuga Peter

Objective: Cardiovascular diseases are the most common comorbidities in acromegaly. Potential parameters in pathology of cardiovascular comorbidities are changes in levels of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) as well as body composition parameters.Purpose: The aim of this study was to examine morphological and functional parameters of the cardiovascular system by echocardiography and to assess its relationship with disease acti...

Sagova Ivana , Pavai Dusan , Kantarova Daniela , Dragula Milan , Vanuga Anton , Vanuga Peter

Cushing’s syndrome (CS) is a relatively rare disease characterized by autonomous hypersecretion of cortisol. The incidence of CS is estimated to be equal to 2–3 cases per million inhabitants per year.The incidence of acromegaly is 3–4 patients per 1 000000 per year. The disease is caused by hypersecretion of growth hormone which is mainly caused by benign tumour of the pituitary gland. In our case report we present a 41 - year - old woman suffering from both Cus...

Heart failure as a first manifestation of acromegaly - A case report

Sagova Ivana , Pavai Dusan , Dragula Milan , Kantarova Daniela , Vanuga Anton , Vaňuga Peter

Acromegaly is a rare disease, which is mainly caused by benign tumour of the pituitary gland. Long-term presence of elevated growth hormone (GH) and insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels accompanying this disease is associated with rheumatologic, cardiovascular, pulmonary and metabolic complications. Cardiovascular complications of acromegaly include a cardiomyopathy, arterial hypertension, arrhytmias, valvulopathy as well as endothelial dysfunction. Cardiovascular disea...
