We evaluated the effect of trimetazidine (TMZ) on recovery of regional cardiac function in anesthetized open-chest pigs, subjected to fifteen 2-minute occlusions of the left anterior descending coronary artery, separated by 2 minutes of reperfusion and a 120-minute recovery period. Regional myocardial function was evaluated by sonomicrometry-derived segment(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the safety and efficacy of robotic mitral valve repair using da Vinci S Surgical system. Method From January 2007 to April 2011, over 400 cases of robotic cardiac surgery have been performed, in which 60 patients with isolated mitral valve insufficiency underwent robotic mitral valve repair, including 42 male and 18 female patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To summary the first 14 cases undergoing internal mammary artery (IMA) harvest using da Vinci S system and minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass grafting (MIDCAB) on beating heart. METHODS The average age of patients was (60.4 +/- 10.1) years old. One case was female and 13 male. All the patients had a history of angina. The coronary(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze retrospectively 1018 patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG) in order to summarize surgical techniques and clinical outcome. METHODS From 1997 through 2004, data of same surgeon for 508 patients who underwent conventional coronary artery bypass surgery on pump (CCABG) and 510 patients who underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the early experiences with rFVIIa in the management of bleeding after cardiovascular surgery. METHODS From May 2006 through December 2007, 16 patients received rFVIIa during or after surgery despite conventional medical therapy and transfusion of blood products. There were 15 male patients and 1 female patients, aged from 36 to 77(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the experience of minimally invasive robotic coronary bypass on beating heart using da Vinci S in China. METHODS Fifty-six patients underwent selected robotic coronary bypass on beating heart from April 2007 to December 2008. All the patients had history of angina and the coronary arteriography showed severe stenosis in the left(More)
OBJECTIVES To establish a cost-effective and reproducible procedure for induction of chronic left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) in rabbits. METHODS Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) was induced in 35 rabbits via concomitant ligation of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery and the circumflex (Cx) branch at the middle portion. Development of AMI(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the experience of ventricular septal myectomy (modified Morrow procedure) in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). METHODS From June 2003 to March 2011, 38 patients (26 male and 12 female) with HOCM underwent modified Morrow procedure. The mean age was 36.3 years (ranging from 18 to 64 years). The diagnosis(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the effects of perioperative intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) support in EuroSCORE high-risk patients undergoing cardiac surgery, and evaluate the risk factors associated with mortality and midterm survival. METHODS Fifty-eight patients with EuroSCORE of no less than 6 underwent cardiac surgery and received peri-operative IABP(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the occurrence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in early stage after cardiac surgery under cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and discuss the perioperative risk factors and its impact on clinical outcome. METHODS Retrospective analysis was performed among 1472 adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery with CPB between January 2008 and April(More)
