A general theory of the causes of murmurs in the cardiovascular system.
  • D. Bruns
  • Medicine
  • The American journal of medicine
  • 1 September 1959
TLDR
Knowledge of the forces involved in nearly periodic wake fluctuations allows more complete understanding of the stresses that may lead to degeneration of cardiovascular structures. Expand
THE AORTIC SYSTOLIC MURMUR DEVELOPING WITH INCREASING AGE
TLDR
The incidence of aortic systolic murmurs, found in a hospital population aged 50 and over, is given and the clinical and pathological findings in such subjects are analysed. Expand
Experimental observations on post-stenotic dilatation.
TOTAL BODY PERFUSION IN CARDIAC OPERATIONS; USE OF PERFUSATE OF BALANCED ELECTROLYTES AND LOW MOLECULAR WEIGHT DEXTRAN.
TLDR
In the early stages of extracorporeal circulation, undoubtably some damage to the blood occurred from suction, turbulence, and pumping, and foreign material may have been introduced in the form of pyrogens, gas bubbles, or antifoaming agents, but they now account for a relatively small proportion of the tissue changes with which the authors are concerned.

The effect of venoarterial bypass on coronary blood flow.
TLDR
Techniques for measuring coronary blood flow during bypass experiments are developed and it is found that the coronaryBlood flow correlates directly with cardiac function. Expand
The coronary blood flow as a critical determinant of cardiac performance and cardiac size.
TLDR
It was found that heart failure induced by pulmonary artery constriction is essentially metabolic, a consequence of decreased coronaryBlood flow, and marked functional improvement could be consistently obtained by increasing coronary blood flow by means of a simple veno-arterial shunting procedure, in the face of persistent pulmonary arteryconstriction. Expand
THE PROBLEM OF COMPLETE HEART BLOCK.
TLDR
It is recommended that the use of implantable pacemakers should be considered in patients with intractable heart block, whether caused by surgical trauma or acquired heart disease. Expand
