Vascular access is used as a lifeline for hemodialysis in patients with end stage renal disease failure (ESRD). Failure of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) maturation is still high. The purpose of this study was to research the effects of clopidogrel in combination with oral iloprost, a synthetic analog of prostacyclin PGI2. Ninety-six diabetic ESRD patients(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) often occurs after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and can result in increased morbidity and mortality due to complications. In the present study, our goal was to investigate whether the use of levosimendan can reduce the frequency of AF after coronary artery bypass grafting in patients with poor left ventricle(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this retrospective study is to determine the correlation between preoperative CRP levels and the early renal dysfunction after cardiac surgery. METHODS From January 2012 to December 2013, values for preoperative CRP were available for 546 unselected patients undergoing cardiac operations. CRP was used to divide this cohort in two(More)
Background: The radial artery (RA) is being used as a second arterial conduit in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) patients. Vasospasm during the harvesting is the most common problem, yet. Our goal of this research is to evaluate the effects of different vasodilators on RA blood flow. Material and Method: In our 250 CABG patients who were included(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the relation between preoperative chronic cerebral ischemia and postoperative new cerebral ischemia in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA). METHODS We reviewed the diffusion weighted magnetic resonance images (DWI) of the 51 patients (37 men, mean age 68.8 ± 8.4 years) undergoing(More)
Background: Although the radial artery (RA) is mostly selected for the creating of arterio-venous fistula (AVF) in end-stage renal disease patients (ESRDP), it still represents a suitable site to simply assess systemic calcification. Our goal of this study was to research the RA before the arteriovenous fistula creation in ESRDP and evaluate the risk factor(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the effect of conventional inotropic drugs compared to levosimendan using tissue tracking echocardiography in the early postoperative period for patients with low ejection fraction undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. METHODS We prospectively analyzed 115 patients (69 male, 46 female) who(More)
