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 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 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)
