Popular for its stimulant properties, it is also appreciated for its taste and is an essential part of many people's daily lives. Coffee, in addition to caffeine, contains macroelements such as sodium, potassium and magnesium, which ensure the proper functioning of the body, as well as polyphenols which are characterised by their anti-inflammatory properties. [1,2] Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia and caffeine is often considered a potential risk factor. [3] The purpose of this article is to evaluate current scientific reports on the relationship between coffee consumption and atrial fibrillation.</p> 2022-09-19T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Anna Karaś, Kinga Kawałko, Kamil Pondel, Krzysztof Bielewicz https://apcz.umk.pl/JEHS/article/view/40024 What do we know about creatine supplementation? 2022-09-17T18:35:26+02:00 Dominika Egierska degierska@gmail.com Michał Perszke mperszke29@gmail.com <p>Creatine is one of the most often used supplements nowadays. Its popularity can be attributed to a wide variety of clinical implications.</p> <p>The intent of this paper was to evaluate and review the latest publications about the usage and potential clinical effects on the human body of creatine supplementation and to bring attention to new findings in this subject.</p> <p>Authors explored PubMed, CrossRef and Google Scholar using keywords: creatine, supplements, ergogenic aids, neuroprotection, bioenergetics. Furthermore, the references of selected articles were manually investigated for additional relevant articles. The bibliography focused mainly on systematic reviews, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and case reports. The selection of individual articles was carried out in accordance with the determinants of general medicine readership.</p> <p>There is still a lot to learn about creatine supplementation and its potentially beneficial effects.

The continued development of minimally invasive treatment methods allows for more effective treatment with greater operator comfort and less risk to the patient. It has been concluded that retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) is superior to other therapeutic methods in many respects. The aim of this study is to review the available studies and publications and to identify potential complications following treatment of kidney and ureteral stones by RIRS, with a particular focus on infectious complications and their risk factors.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><strong>Method and materials: </strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">We reviewed the literature available on PubMed and Google Scholar, using the words 'urolithiasis'; 'urolithiasis treatment'; 'retrograde intrarenal surgery'; 'infectious complications of retrograde intrarenal surgery'.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><strong>Results: </strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">Among the risk factors associated with infectious complications after RIRS, long duration of surgery, recent positive urine culture, urinary tract infections or antibiotic use, purulent urine, urinary nitrites, obstructed access through the ureter, struvite stones, co-morbidities play a special role.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><strong>Conclusions: </strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">Among the complications of surgical treatment of nephrolithiasis and ureteral stones by RIRS, infectious complications are of particular concern. In view of the knowledge of their risk factors, preventive measures should include limiting the duration of surgery, possible antibiotic therapy and considering the use of a larger diameter UAS. This is especially true for patients with abnormal urine results, struvite stones, a history of urinary tract infection or predisposing comorbidities.</span></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Key words: </strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">Urolithiasis; Kidney Calculi; Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery; Urolithiasis infection;</span></p> 2022-09-19T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Tomasz Stachura, Sebastian Bąk, Kamil Budzeń, Paweł Wesołowski, Konrad Gładysz, Magdalena Marzęda, Agnieszka Blicharz, Oliwer Sygacz https://apcz.umk.pl/JEHS/article/view/40020 Potential health benefits from coffee consumption 2022-09-17T18:53:42+02:00 Michał Perszke mperszke29@gmail.com Dominika Egierska degierska@gmail.com <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The history of coffee goes back to the 10th century. Currently, coffee is a widespread drink, with recent studies reporting a global consumption of 164,9 million 60-kg bags in 2020/2021. The effect of coffee on human health has been studied for many years. The active ingredients of coffee include polyphenols, lactones, diterpenes, niacin, the trigonelline (vitamin B</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">3 </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">precursor), magnesium and potassium. Potential factors that could change its properties include the type of beans, the roasting process, the grinding process and the brewing process. Authors searched PubMed and Google Scholar using searchterms coffee, cardiovascular system disease, CVD, type II diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and caffeine. We manually searched the references of selected articles for additional relevant articles. We selected articles relevant to a general medicine readership, prioritizing systematic reviews, cases and clinical practice guidelines. The literature contains the latest reports on the impact of coffee on human health, including cardiovascular diseases, type II diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Drinking coffee may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, because of the caffeine blocking A1 and A2A receptors. It may also contribute to decreasing the risk of type II diabetes, increasing the secretion of GLP-1 and increasing the sensitivity of tissues to insulin. The influence of coffee on the development of Alzheimer’s disease is still being investigated. Coffee is a common drink for many people, so you should know its impact on human health. Contrary to appearances, coffee may have many health-promoting properties.</span></p> 2022-09-17T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Michał Perszke, Dominika Egierska
