Objective: Changes in the pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) and the dimensions of the right ventricle (RV) of the heart, six months after pneumonectomy, were evaluated in order to detect the influence of pneumonectomy on right heart function. Methods: 35 patients undergoing pneumonectomy...
Objective: Maintenance of normothermia during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) may have advantages over hypothermia but there is a potential increased hazard of neurological injury. A novel aortic cannula (Cobra™ catheter, Cardeon® Corp., Cupertino, CA, USA) which compartmentalises the aorta may...
High thoracic epidural anaesthesia has recently been proposed to perform surgical revascularisation with arterial grafts in awake patients. However, in high-risk patients with associated co-morbidity it is not always possible to perform complete arterial revascularisation. A technique which...
Objective: Brain cooling is an essential component of aortic surgery requiring circulatory arrest and inadequate cooling may lead to brain injury. Similarly, brain hyperthermia during the rewarming phase of cardiopulmonary bypass may also lead to neurological injury. Conventional temperature...
Superior vena cava (SVC) resection for lung cancer is feasible in selected patients, but the type of vessel reconstruction is still object of debate. We report a case of SVC revascularization successfully performed with heterologous ‘custom-made’ pericardial tube. This type of revascularization...
