BACKGROUND Historically, porcine bioprosthetic valves have poor durability in pediatric patients; nearly half will require replacement within 5 years. However, our early experience with patients having Ebstein's anomaly suggests that tricuspid bioprostheses in this anomaly might have better durability. METHODS One hundred fifty-eight patients who received(More)
BACKGROUND We planned a case-control study to assess the relation of fasting glucose, fasting insulin, postprandial glucose and postprandial insulin levels with coronary artery disease in nondiabetic women. METHODS Among 968 consecutive nondiabetic women screened, 104 with coronary artery disease (mean age 60, 4+/-9) made up the study cohort (group I).(More)
UNLABELLED Jugular venous oxygen saturation (SJVO(2)) reflects the balance between cerebral blood flow and metabolism. This study was designed to compare the effects of two different acid-base strategies on jugular venous desaturation (SJVO(2) <50%) and cerebral arteriovenous oxygen-glucose use. We performed a prospective, randomized study in 52 patients(More)
BACKGROUND The measures of secondary prevention in patients undergoing coronary bypass graft surgery (CABG) remains largely undetermined in Turkey. DESIGN We designed a multicentre cross-sectional study to estimate the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in patients after CABG and to evaluate the association of demographic-socio-economic factors(More)
Deep hypothermic circulatory arrest may impair cerebral cellular functions, and physiological parameters following circulatory arrest may deviate from the normal. The intention of this study was to monitor jugular venous oxygen saturation during cardiopulmonary bypass before and after deep hypothermic circulatory arrest. Jugular venous oxygen saturation(More)
This case-control study was designed to outline age- and gender-related differences of metabolic risk factors in a group of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Accordingly, a total of 366 consecutive patients with a recent diagnosis of CAD (139 women, 41-79 yr; 227 men, 39-78 yr) were screened between October 1999 and April 2001 at Baskent(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) and its components, to determine the patients' compliance with pharmacological therapy and lifestyle modification, and to clarify the association of demographic and socioeconomic factors with the MS in Turkish patients with prior coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG).(More)
Tetralogy of Fallot associated with ascending aortic aneurysm and aortic valve regurgitation is unusual. This combination necessitates a change in operative strategy during complete tetralogy repair. We present a 43-year-old woman who successfully underwent composite graft replacement of the ascending aorta and aortic valve during primary complete tetralogy(More)
BACKGROUND The management of a small aortic root at the time of aortic valve replacement is controversial. In cases in which the aortic root is very small the choice of aortic valve type and of root-enlargement method is difficult. The technical challenge of the small aortic root has instigated the creation of methods for annular enlargement. Severe(More)
Association of right aortic arch and coarctation of the aorta is rare. A patient with aortic coarctation was presented to our clinic. Detailed radiological work-up revealed aortic coarctation, aneurysm of ductus arteriosus, mirror image brachiocephalic vessels, right-sided arch, and right-sided descending aorta. The patient underwent successful operative(More)
