Diagnostic Score for Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia After Cardiopulmonary Bypass

Diagnostic Score for Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia After Cardiopulmonary Bypass

Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) occurs in nearly 3% of patients treated with heparin after cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).

Hematological Changes During Short-Term Tidal Flow Extracorporeal Life Support

Single occluder tidal flow ECLS may be feasible and efficacious for long-term application once recirculation is resolved and the system evaluated for long-term support.

Perfusion-Assisted Beating Heart Support With a Miniature Extracorporeal Circuit and Leukocyte Filtration: A 58-Year-Old Patient With Severe COPD

We believe that, based upon his clinical course of ventilation time (17.4 hours) and postoperative length of hospital stay (5 days), this high risk patient demonstrated a positive clinical outcome as a result of these techniques.

Leucocyte Filtration of Residual Heart/Lung Machine Blood in Children Undergoing Congenital Heart Surgery

We conclude that leucocyte filtration of the residual heart-lung machine blood reduced systemic leucocyte counts, but did not improve arterial blood oxygenation in children after congenital heart surgery.

Platelet Quantification and Growth Factor Analysis from Platelet Rich Plasma: Implications for Wound Healing

Sufficient concentrates and release of these growth factors through autologous platelet gels may be capable of expediting wound healing in a variety of as yet undetermined specific wound applications.

Total Arterial Off-Pump versus On-Pump Coronary Revascularization: Comparison of Early Outcome

Arterial OPCAB patients have less extensive CAD, but more severe symptoms.

Side Effects of Cardiopulmonary Bypass:. What Is the Reality?

Side Effects of Cardiopulmonary Bypass:. What Is the Reality?

Despite many years of clinical and experimental research, the contribution of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and cardioplegic arrest to morbidity and mortality following cardiac surgery remains unclear.

The History and Development of Direct Coronary Surgery without Cardiopulmonary Bypass

The History and Development of Direct Coronary Surgery without Cardiopulmonary Bypass

The history of direct myocardial revascularization without cardiopulmonary bypass dates to 1961 in the dawn of coronary artery surgery. With the introduction and development of techniques of extracorporeal circulation around the same time, beating heart surgery was largely abandoned.

A Technique for Infusion of Cardioplegic Solution in Coronary Artery Bypass with Aortic Regurgitation

A Technique for Infusion of Cardioplegic Solution in Coronary Artery Bypass with Aortic Regurgitation

When off-pump coronary artery bypass is impossible and retrograde cardioplegia cannot be performed for a certain reason, this method may be set to one of the choices.

Left Ventricular Assist Devices: Evolving Devices and Indications for Use in Ischemic Heart Disease

This review describes current indications for the use of these devices, the types of pumps now available, criteria for initiating ventricular assist device support, complications of their use, and new applications such as a platform for stem cell therapy for treatment of end-stage heart failure.
