BACKGROUND Pleurotomy during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) may cause post-operative events, mostly pulmonary complications. In this study, we evaluated the influence of pleurotomy during CABG on the clinical outcome following left internal mammary artery (LIMA) harvesting. METHODS Between March and August 2009, 102 patients who underwent cardiac(More)
BACKGROUND Pregnant patients with mechanical heart valves require anticoagulation. The risk of bleeding and embryopathy associated with oral anticoagulants must be weighed against the risk of valve thrombosis. METHODS In this prospective study, undertaken between 1999 and 2009, 53 pregnancies (47 women with mechanical mitral valves; 29.8 ± 4.8 years old)(More)
INTRODUCTION Standards have a significant role in showing the minimum level of optimal optimum and the expected performance. Since the perfusion technology staffs play an the leading role in providing the quality services to the patients undergoing open heart surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass machine, this study aimed to assess the standards on how(More)
Pseudoaneurysms of the ascending aorta, which are rare and life-threatening complications in cardiovascular surgeries, can be caused by the Bentall procedure. We describe a 44-year-old woman, who had a medical history of acute aortic dissection (Type A) and the Bentall procedure and was admitted because of exertional dyspnea, edema of the lower extremities,(More)
INTRODUCTION Excessive fibrinolysis contributes to post-cardiopulmonary bypass bleeding. Tranexamic Acid (TXA) and Caproamin Fides are synthetic lysine analogues that inhibit plasminogen-fibrin binding. The present study aimed to compare TXA and Caproamin Fides versus placebo in patients undergoing elective coronary artery revascularization. METHODS We(More)
INTRODUCTION Excessive bleeding presents a risk for the patient in cardiovascular surgery. Local haemostatic agents are of great value to reduce bleeding and related complications. TachoSil (Nycomed, Linz, Austria) is a sterile, haemostatic agent that consists of an equine collagen patchcoated with human fibrinogen and thrombin. This study evaluated the(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the advances in pain control following surgery, data on the location and distribution of pain following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are lacking. OBJECTIVES This study was intended to investigate the location, distribution, and intensity of pain in patients undergoing CABG during their postoperative hospital stay from the(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to assess the results of the pulmonary artery (PA) banding in patients with congenital heart defects (CHD) and pulmonary hypertension (PH) in the current era. METHODS We analyzed data from 305 patients who underwent PA banding between April 2005 and April 2010 at our centre. All patients were approached through a(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM The main goal of this study was to assess the frequency of recurrent coarctation after repair using different surgical methods. METHODS Surgical results of repairs for coarctation of aorta (Co-A) in 188 patients under the age 14 years who were treated in Rajaee Heart Center, Tehran, Iran, were evaluated retrospectively. The most common(More)
