The Effect of Zero-Balanced Ultrafiltration During Cardiopulmonary Bypass on S100b Release and Cognitive Function

Zero-balanced ultrafiltration (ZBUF) might reduce the systemic inflammatory response (SIRS) during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) by removing inflammatory mediators.

Correlation Between Inflammatory Response and Markers of Neuronal Damage in Coronary Revascularization With and Without Cardiopulmonary Bypass

Off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery may reduce the inflammatory response and the neuronal damage associated with conventional CABG on cardiopulmonary bypass.

Cardiopulmonary Bypass Strategy During Concomitant Surgical Treatment of Mitral Valve Disease and Atrial Fibrillation

Cardiopulmonary Bypass Strategy During Concomitant Surgical Treatment of Mitral Valve Disease and Atrial Fibrillation

The conduct of CPB and myocardial protection play a central role in the surgical strategy by improving intraoperative feasibility and effectiveness of radio frequency ablation and preventing some of the potential postoperative complications related to the procedure.

Cannulation of the Extrathoracic Left Common Carotid Artery for Thoracic Aorta Operations Through Left Posterolateral Thoracotomy

Cannulation of the Extrathoracic Left Common Carotid Artery for Thoracic Aorta Operations Through Left Posterolateral Thoracotomy

The femoral artery is the usual site of arterial cannulation in thoracic aorta operations through left posterolateral thoracotomy that require cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA).

Intraoperative and Postoperative Variables Associated With Strokes Following Cardiac Surgery

Intraoperative and Postoperative Variables Associated With Strokes Following Cardiac Surgery

After we adjusted for preoperative factors, postoperative atrial fibrillation and increasing duration of cardiopulmonary bypass remained significant predictors of embolic and hypoperfusion strokes, although to differing degrees.

Influence of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) on Osteogenic Differentiation of Rat Bone Marrow Stromal Cells. An In Vitro Study

The data suggest that PRP inhibited osteogenic differentiation of marrow derived pre-osteoblasts in a dose dependent manner. PRP is not a substitute for BMP-2 in osteogenic induction.

Fulminant Myocarditis in Adults and Children: Bi-Ventricular Assist Device for Recovery

In FM with intractable cardiogenic shock, the use of a BiVAD as a bridge to recovery is a life saving approach and should be considered before multi-end organ failure.
