Somatosensory evoked responses after median nerve stimulation were recorded in 21 patients during hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass. During hypothermia a significant linear correlation (P less than 0.001) was found between evoked potential latency and temperature. Correlation was best for tympanic membrane temperature during cooling and for perfusate(More)
OBJECTIVES The study objective was to assess the cardiac expression of interleukin-6 (IL6) and its receptor (IL6R) in advanced heart failure. BACKGROUND While IL6 plasma levels are elevated and associated with an impaired prognosis in advanced heart failure, little is known about the intracardiac expression of the IL6 system. METHODS Heart tissue was(More)

Background: Irreversibly dysfunctional myocardium is electrically characterized by decreased amplitudes and prolonged duration of local electrograms. We investigated whether ECGs from body surface correlate with epicardial electrograms. Methods: A 120-channel body surface potential mapping (BSPM) was performed in 24 patients before CABG. During CABG(More)
Neurologic, cardiologic, and dopplersonographic findings of 303 patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery were evaluated in a prospective study. About 5% of the patients suffered from a prior stroke. Nearly 9% had a significant stenosis of an internal carotid artery detected by dopplersonography. Central nervous system complications occurred in 18.2% of(More)
