AbstractFourty-three patients undergoing open heart surgery were subjected toextended hemodynamic and metabolic monitoring (arterial and coronary sinus(CS) lactate concentration). In 95% of patients investigated, a significantincrease in CS lactate concentration above the arterial...
AbstractValvuloplasty is now a well accepted alternative method of surgicaltreatment of mitral valve disease. To analyse its relative performance inrheumatic valvulopathies, three groups of patients who had mitralvalvuloplasty (1980-1984; 241 patients) or mitral valve replacement withmechanical...
AbstractTwo case reports are presented in children who developed significantrespiratory distress due to persistent tracheomalacia despite vasculardecompression for double aortic arch. Cardiopulmonary bypass is suggestedas a useful approach to the distal tracheal segment in children.
AbstractOne hundred and forty patients underwent 142 brushings and conventionalbiopsies of suspected malignant lesions of the lung through a fibreopticbronchoscope. Both samples were taken from the same area. One hundred andthree patients showed positive results on brushing and 90 on...
AbstractWe have used the heterotopically transplanted rat heart to investigatewhether the nature (sanguineous or asanguineous) of the initial period ofreperfusion after hypothermic cardioplegic storage influences thepostischaemic recovery of the heart. Excised rat hearts were arrested byinfusion...
AbstractA case of congenital stenosis of the pulmonary veins and total leftanomalous pulmonary venous return is reported. There was also obstructionbetween the left pulmonary veins and left vena cava superior. The diagnosiswas based on 2-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography and was...
AbstractThe scarcity of suitable donors for single lung and heart-lungtransplantation calls for methods of medium-term pulmonary preservation toallow for distant organ procurement. At our institution, the first fivegrafts (four heart-lung, one single lung) were cooled by means of atransportable...
AbstractPreservation of the subvalvular apparatus in mitral valve replacementhas been suggested to improve postoperative left ventricular performance.As it is difficult to quantify the change in left ventricular performanceclinically, an experimental model was devised to demonstrate...
