Prophylactic fibrinogen infusion reduces bleeding after coronary artery bypass surgery. A prospective randomised pilot study.
It has been suggested that preoperative fibrinogen plasma concentration is independently associated to postoperative blood loss after cardiac surgery. Theoretically, prophylactic infusion ofExpand

Plasma activity of individual coagulation factors, hemodilution and blood loss after cardiac surgery: a prospective observational study.
BACKGROUND Hemodilution and consumption of coagulation factors during cardiopulmonary bypass has been suggested to contribute to bleeding complications after cardiac surgery. The aim was to describeExpand

The VLDL receptor promotes lipotoxicity and increases mortality in mice following an acute myocardial infarction.
Impaired cardiac function is associated with myocardial triglyceride accumulation, but it is not clear how the lipids accumulate or whether this accumulation is detrimental. Here we show thatExpand

Mortality on the waiting list for coronary artery bypass grafting: incidence and risk factors.
BACKGROUND Insufficient capacity for coronary artery bypass grafting results in waiting times before operation, prioritization of patients and, ultimately, death on the waiting list. We aimed toExpand

PCR-based cloning and segregation analysis of functional gene homologues in Beta vulgaris
Abstract To analyse genetic factors that potentially affect sugar quality and yield in Beta vulgaris, we designed primers based on 18 homologous ESTs and conserved regions of 32 heterologous ESTsExpand

Plasma fibrinogen level, bleeding, and transfusion after on‐pump coronary artery bypass grafting surgery: a prospective observational study
BACKGROUND: Early identification of patients with increased risk of excessive bleeding and transfusion after cardiac surgery offers the possibility to initiate countermeasures. Fibrinogen is a keyExpand
