Influence of diabetes mellitus on early and late outcome after coronary artery bypass grafting.
TLDR
Diabetics have a worse hospital and longterm outcome after coronary artery bypass grafting, and the increased risk in such patients can only partially be explained by other demographic characteristics. Expand
Cervical Pedicle Screws Versus Lateral Mass Screws: Anatomic Feasibility and Biomechanical Comparison
TLDR
Cervical pedicle screws demonstrated a significantly higher resistance to pull-out forces than did lateral mass screws, and the variability in pedicle morphometry and orientation requires careful preoperative assessment to determine the suitability of pedicle screw insertion. Expand
Mechanisms of attentional selection: Temporally modulated priority tags
TLDR
It is concluded that a mechanism incorporating temporally decaying priority tags is implicated in servicing multiple abrupt onsets in visual search. Expand
Outcomes and Long‐Term Survival for Patients Undergoing Mitral Valve Repair Versus Replacement: Effect of Age and Concomitant Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting
TLDR
Mitral valve repair does not provide significant long‐term survival benefit over MV replacement in patients older than 60 years of age or those requiring concomitant CABG. Expand
601 octogenarians undergoing cardiac surgery: outcome and comparison with younger age groups.
TLDR
When appropriately applied in selectedOctogenarians, cardiac surgery can be performed with acceptable mortality and excellent 5-year survival, but after 5 years there is a more rapid decline in octogenarians than in younger age groups. Expand
A method for the solubilization of a (1----3)-beta-D-glucan isolated from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
The ability to prepare a immunologically active, non-toxic, water-soluble beta-D-glucan preparation will greatly enhance the clinical utility of this class of compounds. Expand
Valve replacement in patients on chronic renal dialysis: implications for valve prosthesis selection.
TLDR
The sixfold higher incidence of late bleeding or stroke in patients on dialysis with a mechanical valve requiring warfarin suggests that bioprosthetic valves are the valve substitute of choice in patientson chronic dialysis. Expand
Outcome of coronary bypass surgery versus coronary angioplasty in diabetic patients with multivessel coronary artery disease.
TLDR
This study reveals a high incidence of events in diabetic patients and raises further questions about angioplasty in insulin-requiring diabetic patients with multivessel coronary disease. Expand
Mediastinitis after cardiac valve operations. Impact upon survival.
TLDR
Early débridement and muscle flap closure has led to a 94% survival rate in 16 patients during the past 4 years and the impact of mediastinitis upon survival is best evaluated in the remaining 24 patients without high-risk perioperative problems. Expand
Determinants of prolonged length of hospital stay after coronary bypass surgery.
TLDR
The length of hospital stay after coronary surgery was studied in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization followed by coronary surgery at Emory University Hospital or Crawford Long Hospital and was correlated with the periprocedural variables of wound infection, neurologic event, arrhythmias, pneumonia, postoperative myocardial infarction, mortality, and pericarditis.
