OBJECTIVE Our aim was to define the prevalence of specific sequelae after repair of partial atrioventricular septal defect. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 132 consecutive patients undergoing repair of partial atrioventricular septal defect were studied for mortality, left atrioventricular valve function, reoperations, left ventricular outflow tract(More)
To compare different doses of tranexamic acid, 150 consecutive children with congenital cyanotic heart disease were randomly assigned to one of 5 groups of 30 each. Group A served as a control. Group B received 50 mg.kg(-1) of tranexamic acid at induction of anesthesia. Group C received 10 mg.kg(-1) at induction followed by an infusion of 1 mg.kg(-1).h(-1).(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared the efficacy of aminocaproic acid and tranexamic acid in reducing postoperative blood loss, as well as blood and blood product requirements in children with cyanotic congenital heart disease. DESIGN A prospective randomized study. SETTING Cardiac center of a tertiary care, referral hospital. PARTICIPANTS One hundred fifty(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Antifibrinolytic agents are used commonly in adult cardiac surgery to reduce postoperative blood loss. Paucity of literature on the use of a newer antifibrinolytic agent tranexamic acid (TA) in children undergoing cardiac surgery promoted us to conduct this study in children with cyanotic heart disease. METHODS One hundred and(More)
OBJECTIVE Cyanotic congenital heart diseases (CCHD) with secondary polycythemia and hyperviscosity state are associated with a reduction in blood flow, stagnation of blood, and thrombosis. Sufficient hemodilution in cyanotic children results in higher blood flow and significant reductions in perioperative blood loss. The aim of this study was to investigate(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to review short- and long-term outcomes following total correction in patients with tetralogy of Fallot that presented during adulthood. METHODS It was a retrospective analysis of 284 patients (aged 14-50 years, mean 19.4 +/- 2.5 years) with tetralogy of Fallot who underwent total correction at our institution between(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether the duration of antibiotic prophylaxis influences the rate of surgical site infection in patients undergoing coronary bypass grafting or valve replacement. PATIENTS AND METHODS Adult patients undergoing elective coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and valve surgery were included in this randomized double blind study.(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to identify the morphologic characteristics and other risk factors that may predispose patients with mixed totally anomalous pulmonary venous connection to continuing high mortality after surgery. METHODS Fifty-seven consecutive patients aged 15 days to 18 years (median, 6 months) underwent rechanneling of mixed(More)
