OBJECTIVES During unilateral selective cerebral perfusion (uSCP), with right axillary artery or brachiocephalic trunk cannulation, the brain receives blood only via the right common carotid artery and right vertebral artery (VA). The left hemisphere is perfused mainly through the circle of Willis (CW). However, at least 50% of individuals have some(More)
We describe a case of a patient with moderate hemophilia B, undergoing CABG. Substitution therapy was realized with factor IX concentrate (Bebulin-TIM4-IMMUNO). We discuss which of the following factors: hypothermia, hemodilution of heparinisation has a substantial role in alteration of FIX coagulant activity during cardiopulmonary bypass.
The first lumbar sympathectomy for treatment of arterial occlusive disease of the lower extremity was performed in 1924 by Julio Diez of Buenos Aires. The standart anatomy textbooks indicate, as a rule that the lumbar sympathetic trunk contains four or five ganglia. The overall anatomic denervation is important for achievement of an adequate sympathectomy(More)
The objective of this study was to define the perioperative risk of simultaneous operations in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). The hospital data of 30 patients with coexistent severe symptomatic AAA and significant CAD, who underwent one stage surgery of the abdominal aorta and the coronary(More)
Extracranial carotid artery aneurysms are unusually rare. Their aetiology and clinical picture have significant meaning for their recognition, with the majority involving the common carotid artery--ACC. Approximately one third of these lesions are confined to the ICA, with an equal distribution between the proximal, middle, and distal segments. Nonoperated(More)
The rupture of the sinus of Valsalva is a rare heart disease with a heavy clinical manifestation, the treatment of which is surgical. It is diagnosed with echocardiography and cardiac catheterisation. The anesthesiologist has to answer many and important questions about anesthetic treatment. There is a little information is the literature on the anesthetic(More)
UNLABELLED Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is a surgical intervention that aims to reduce neurological symptoms in carotid atherosclerosis and prevent brain damage and subsequent permanent neurological deficit. AIM To study the major risk factors, surgical techniques, applied diagnostic methods and perioperative complications occurred in patients undergoing(More)
The deep femoral artery is the main source of blood supply to the leg and foot when the superficial femoral artery is occluded. In this situation, the geometry of the trunk of the deep femoral artery represents a stenosis of 50 per cent interposed between the common femoral artery and the collateral circuit of the deep femoral artery. Intimal thickening of(More)
