19 patients undergoing total hip replacement in general anesthesia because of transcervical femur fractures were continuously monitored throughout surgery to detect any embolic events. Aside from the standard monitoring with ECG and control of arterial pressure in regular short intervals, the pulse-oximetry and capnography were applied for a comparative(More)
Pulsed Doppler techniques have become well established adjuncts to conventional echocardiography in the noninvasive diagnosis of various cardiac malfunctions. Disadvantages of the transthoracic approach, such as inaccessibility and instability of the probe position, limit the continuous application of pulsed Doppler echocardiography during surgery. This(More)
The early diagnosis of traumatic aortic dissections and aneurysms involving the thoracic aorta is of crucial importance for the outcome of patients suffering chest injuries. This subject is presented using two case reports; one illustrates the problems resulting from an overlooked traumatic aneurysm of the thoracic aorta and the second shows the(More)
8 ASA class II-III patients (50-67 years) undergoing traumatic-surgical procedures were studied. Since the release of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is stimulated by volume loading and increased right atrial pressure (RAP), the effects of incremental positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on ANP-concentration, RAP and right atrial dimensions were(More)
Stroke volume and cardiac output (CO) can be determined noninvasively by means of the pulsed Doppler technique to measure blood flow velocities in specified regions of the heart or neighboring great vessels along with 2D-echocardiographic imaging to measure the diameter of vessels or valve orifices. Disadvantages of the transthoracic approach, such as(More)
