Comparison of Microplegia Solution and Del Nido Cardioplegia Solution in Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgery: Which One is More Effective?
In light of short-term results, we can say that Del Nido cardioplegia provides better myocardial protection than microplegia. In addition, Del Nido cardioplegia can be given as a single dose for 90 minutes of cross-clamp time and therefore can be preferred to increase surgical comfort and reduce cross-clamp times.
The Impact of del Nido Cardioplegia Solution on Blood Morphology Parameters
The del Nido cardioplegia does not decrease blood morphology parameters when compared to cold blood cardioplegia and may be used alternatively regardless of bleeding and coagulopathy risk.
Del Nido Cardioplegia in Adult Cardiac Surgery: Analysis of Myocardial Protection and Post-Operative High-Sensitivity Troponin T
In a broad cohort of adult cardiac surgery patients, including those undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery and those with recent myocardial infarction, del Nido provides equivalent myocardial protection and clinical outcomes when compared to hyperkalemic blood cardioplegia. Post-operative high-sensitivity Troponin T values were also equivalent between the groups.
A Cardiac Protection of Germinated Brown Rice During Cardiopulmonary Bypass Surgery and Simulated Myocardial Ischemia
Therefore, GBR might exert cardio-protective effects against ischemic reperfusion injury in the porcine cardiac surgery model due to anti-inflammatory response. These protective actions of GBR may explain the benefits gained from applying GBR products as a possible therapeutic supplement on cardiac diseases.
Esmolol in Cardiac Surgery: A Randomized Controlled Trial
In the present trial, esmolol as a cardioplegia adjuvant enhanced postoperative cardiac performance but did not reduce a composite endpoint of prolonged intensive care unit stay and/or mortality.
Del Nido Microplegia Compared to Standard 1:4 Crystalloid Del Nido for Myocardial Protection
Editor’s Note: We had a fun discussion with a couple of our surgeons today regarding the use of Del Nido cardioplegia. At this institution we have been deploying the microplegia version of Del Nido, and subsequently substituting Blood as the crystalloid component, delivering the primary dose in 1,200 ml aliquots, and then redosing at 60…
