INTRODUCTION During the last two decades, many authors have found that European Systems for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (additive and logistic models) overestimate the risk in cardiac surgery. The new European model has recently been introduced as an update to previous versions. The aim of the study was to investigate the significance of locally(More)
Results of surgical treatment for ischemic mitral regurgitation were retrospectively analyzed in 209 patients. All patients underwent myocardial revascularisation as well as mitral valve surgery. Preoperative myocardial infarction was registered in 75% of cases. These patients had different degrees of left ventricular dysfunction. Postoperative 30-day(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with primary dilated cardiomyopathy exhibit extensive remodeling of the left ventricle, mitral and tricuspid annular dilation and both mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. These factors significantly contribute to heart failure, and are predictors of early lethal outcome. The aim of this study is to show hemodynamic and clinical(More)
INTRODUCTION The European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (EuroSCORE) was developed in order to predict operative risk in cardiac surgery and to assess the quality of the cardio-surgical care. Introduction of the uniform terminology in result evaluation process leads to the significant improvement in measuring and evaluation of surgical(More)
INTRODUCTION In current era of widespread use of percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), it is debatable whether coronary artery by-pass graft (CABG) patients are at higher risk. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate trends in risk profile of isolated CABG patients. METHODS By analysing the EuroSCORE and its risk factors, we reviewed a(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to show hemodynamic and clinical improvement of heart failure after reductive annuloplasty of double (mitral and tricuspid) orifices (RADO) in the treatment of ischemic (IDCM) and primary (PDCM) dilated cardiomyopathy. MATERIALS AND METHODS From November 1986 to July 15, 2002, 341 patients underwent operations for(More)
BACKGROUND The European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (EuroSCORE) II has been recently introduced as an update to the previous versions. We sought to evaluate the predictive performance of the EuroSCORE II model against the original additive and logistic EuroSCORE models. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 1,247 consecutive patients(More)
During the last several years many authors have found that the European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation is useful in the prediction of not only postoperative mortality but also of the length of stay in the intensive care unit, complication rate and overall treatment expenses. This study included 329 patients who had undergone isolated surgical(More)
Long-term results of surgical myocardial revascularization are determined by the quality of grafts and the progression of atherosclerosis in coronary arteries. The aim of the study was to evaluate the patency rate of internal thoracic artery and great saphenous vein grafts in relation to the hemodynamic properties of revascularized coronary artery. The(More)
