The Terumo Capiox centrifugal pump system possesses an automatic priming function in which the motor repeatedly stops and runs intermittently to eliminate air bubbles in the circuit through the micropores of the hollow-fiber membrane oxygenator. By modifying this mechanism, we have developed a pulsatile flow mode. In this mode, maximum and minimum pump(More)
BACKGROUND Effective alternatives to surgical myectomy for patients with symptomatic hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) remain unestablished. Dual-chamber (DDD) pacing was evaluated in these patients using right atrial (RA) and epicardial left ventricular (LV) leads. METHODS AND RESULTS In 6 patients with HOCM refractory to medical therapy and(More)
1. Cardiac activities of male and female spawning chum salmon were recorded simultaneously by using a radio telemetry system in combination with a wired system. 2. Heart beat stopped during a spawning bout for about 10 sec in female and for 4-6 sec in male. 3. Just before and after the temporary cardiac arrest, heart rate increased from the usual rate,(More)
The effect of high dose tranexamic acid on blood loss after operations for acute aortic dissection was evaluated. Twenty-eight patients undergoing emergent operations for acute aortic dissection were studied. There were two groups, group T with 13 patients (group T) who were given 7 g of tranexamic acid after induction of anesthesia and 3 g of it after CPB(More)
A 76-year-old woman presented with shortness of breath and dyspnea after the intake of meals. Chest X-ray showed pulmonary congestion and pleural effusion. Computed tomography disclosed a hiatus hernia. Echocardiography demonstrated that the motion of the posterior wall in the left ventricle (LV) was paradoxically by the hiatus hernia, although LV ejection(More)
The 60-year-old women who complicated by multiple sclerosis was referred to our hospital under diagnosis of mitral valve stenosis and tricuspid valve regurgitation. The mitral valve replacement and the tricuspid valve annuloplasty were performed under cardiopulmonary bypass. In the state of multiple sclerosis, even an operation by general anesthesia could(More)
A 63-year-old man with chest pain at rest was referred to our hospital. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a mobile ball-like mass at the top of the right coronary cusp. Subsequently, transesophageal echocardiography also showed a mobile mass at the right coronary cusp. Aortic valve replacement with a mechanical valve was performed under general(More)
A 48-year-old man, who had a cerebral arterial aneurysm, was admitted in our institution for operation of aortic valve stenosis. At first, he underwent clipping for cerebral arterial aneurysm under precise management of his hemodynamic condition. After the clipping operation, we performed aortic valve replacement with the Toronto stentless porcine valve(More)
Effective myocardial protection is often challenging in patients who have undergone prior myocardial revascularization and require reintervention on the aortic root with patent grafts. We report the case of a patient who underwent composite valve graft replacement and hemiarch aortic reconstruction after repair of a ruptured aneurysm of the right coronary(More)
A 53-year-old man who developed coronary artery aneurysm following repeated percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) was reported. At the first coronary angiography, the severity of coronary stenosis was 95% at areas #6 and #7. The first PTCA provided sufficient coronary dilatation, but 3 months later, PTCA was needed again because of the(More)
