Aprotinin for primary coronary artery bypass grafting: a multicenter trial of three dose regimens.
Low-dose and pump-prime-only aprotinin regimens provide reductions in bleeding and transfusion requirements that are similar to those of high-dose regimens. Expand
Analyses of coronary graft patency after aprotinin use: results from the International Multicenter Aprotinin Graft Patency Experience (IMAGE) trial.
The probability of early vein graft Occlusion was increased by aprotinin, but this outcome was promoted by multiple risk factors for graft occlusion. Expand
Anesthesia awareness and the bispectral index.
The results of this trial did not reproduce the results of previous studies that reported a lower incidence of anesthesia awareness with BIS monitoring, and the use of the BIS protocol was not associated with reduced administration of volatile anesthetic gases. Expand
A randomized, double‐blind, dose‐ranging, pilot study of intravenous granisetron in the prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing abdominal hysterectomy1
Granisetron at doses of 0.3 mg administered just prior to the end of surgery suggested a trend of improved efficacy compared to placebo in preventing postoperative nausea and vomiting in the first 6 h after abdominal hysterectomy. Expand
Suppression of ventricular arrhythmias by volatile anesthetics in a canine model of chronic myocardial infarction.
It is concluded that halothane and enflurane suppress inducible ventricular arrhythmias secondary to a prior myocardial infarction, and the increased efficacy of halothanes and en flurane as antiarrhythmic agents compared with isoflurane in this model may be related to their greater prolongation of refractory periods.

Intrapatient Reproducibility of the BISxp® Monitor
The results suggest that BISxp® does not always provide a reproducible single number and anesthesia providers should not rely exclusively on the BIS reading when assessing depth of anesthesia. Expand
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
The correlation between mean lesion length of diffuse intermediate stenosis of proximal and mid segment of major coronary arteries and mean fractional flow reserve (FFR) was weak and did not suggest any hemodynamic significance of diffuse Intermediate coronary artery lesions. Expand
Guidelines and alternatives for neuraxial anesthesia and venous thromboembolism prophylaxis in major orthopedic surgery.
Neuraxial anesthesia during major orthopedic surgery, combined with venous thromboembolism prophylaxis, is generally safe and well tolerated, with potential benefits over general anesthesia. The riskExpand
Case report: Inferior vena-cava right atrial anastomotic stenosis after bicaval orthotopic heart transplantation
The occurrence of acute postoperative liver and renal failure after bicaval orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT) due to stenosis of the inferior vena cava-right atrial (RA) anastomosis is described. Expand
