Cardiopulmonary bypass: a low T4 and T3 syndrome with blunted thyrotropin (TSH) response to thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH).
Thyroid hormone serum concentrations, the thyrotropin (TSH) and prolactin (PRL) response to thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) were evaluated in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB)Expand
Cell metabolism in patients undergoing major valvular heart surgery: Relationship with intra and postoperative hemodynamics, oxygen transport, and oxygen utilization patterns
The relationships between cell metabolism and both hemodynamics and oxygen transport/utilization (Vo2/Do2) pattern were evaluated intra and postoperatively in eight patients undergoing major valvularExpand
Perioperative myocardial cell damage assessed by immunoradiometric assay of beta-myosin heavy chain serum levels in patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery.
In order to investigate myocardial cell damage in patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery, serum levels of cardiac myosin fragments, using monoclonal antibodies to myosin beta heavy chains, wereExpand
Carotid endarterectomy under hypothermic extracorporeal circulation: a method of brain protection for special patients.
This study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of hypothermic extracorporeal circulation for cerebral protection in 17 patients having simultaneous carotid endarterectomy and cardiac operations.Expand
A comparative clinical study on the effects of cardiopulmonary bypass with different flows and pressures on skeletal muscle cell metabolism in patients undergoing coronary bypass grafting.
This study compares the effects of cardiopulmonary bypass with different flows and pressures on intracellular energy metabolism, acid-base equilibrium, and muscle water compartments in two groups ofExpand
Prevention of deep venous thrombosis by a new low molecular weight heparin (Fluxum) in cardiac surgery.
The prophylactic deep venous antithrombotic efficacy of a low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) was compared with traditional unfractionated calcium heparin in 39 patients submitted to cardiac surgery.Expand
Right atrial hemangioma.
A case of right atrial hemangioma as a rare tumor of the heart is reported. Because of its single, pedunculated mass, surgical excision of the tumor resulted in the complete treatment.Expand
Cell metabolism response to cardiopulmonary bypass in patients undergoing aorto-coronary grafting.
The main parameters of muscle acid-base, water and energy metabolism were studied in ten patients undergoing low-flux (1.5 l/min/m2), low-pressure (40 to 60 mmHg) hypothermic (26 degrees C)Expand
Negative inotropic effect of some H2-receptor antagonists on the isolated human atria
H2-Receptor antagonists were found to possess in various degrees a negative inotropic effect on human atria in vitro. This effect seemed to be independent of H2-receptor blockade and, at least in theExpand
