The present clinical study was undertaken to assess the alterations in myocardial metabolism and coronary haemodynamics during weaning from mechanical ventilation in postoperative cardiac surgical patients. Global and regional myocardial blood flow and metabolism were assessed using a dual port coronary sinus-great cardiac vein thermodilution catheter in 17(More)
Partial venovenous cardiopulmonary bypass with a membrane oxygenator was used to exchange respiratory gases during and after bilateral lung lavage in a patient with severe hypoxemia caused by pulmonary alveolar proteinosis. The patient was unable to tolerate an attempt at lung lavage without bypass. Therefore, extracorporeal perfusion safely supported the(More)
A clinical case is reported indicating that intracranial pressure (ICP) rises with cross-clamping of the thoracic aorta (CCTA) in humans and does not fall if arterial blood pressure (BP) is lowered by nitroprusside. Hantler and Knight (Anesthesiology 1982;56:146-147) also reported a similar case. We investigated this phenomenon prospectively, measuring ICP,(More)
The global and regional coronary hemodynamic and myocardial metabolic effects of isoflurane administered intraoperatively as an adjunct to sufentanil were studied in seven of nine patients who experienced increased systemic arterial pressure while undergoing elective coronary artery bypass grafting. All patients were premedicated and maintained on their(More)
Two patients developed an acute transmural myocardial infarction due to severe obstruction of the proximal right coronary artery after blunt chest trauma. Neither had a history of ischemic heart disease, and both had an arteriographically normal left coronary artery. In one patient significant resolution of the subtotal obstruction occurred within 3 months.(More)
Global coronary blood flow and metabolism were measured in seven patients on the first postoperative day following coronary revascularization to test the hypothesis that tracheal extubation produces adverse haemodynamic responses akin to those observed during tracheal intubation. Regional coronary flow and metabolic measurements were made in five of the(More)
