Thirty-one patients (94%) were in New York Heart Association class III or IV, 15 (46%) had unstable angina, and 7 (21%) were operated on because of evolving myocardial infarction. One or more(More)
Dynamic descending aortomyoplasty for cardiac assistance is a form of extraaortic, skeletal muscle-driven counterpulsation. Controversy exists regarding its clinical applicability and the most suitable muscle autograft for the procedure. Specifically, the ligation of intercostal vessels required for descending aortomyoplasty may not be tolerated clinically.(More)
Sodium nitroprusside (SNP) is usually used to control excessive proximal pressure after aortic cross-clamping. To assess the effect of SNP on circulatory dynamics, somatosensory evoked potentials, and neurologic outcome, 10 adult mongrel dogs that underwent 45 minutes of cross-clamping of the thoracic aorta were randomly assigned to receive either 50 mg/kg(More)
Many theoretical advantages over conventional surgical techniques have been attributed to the Nd:YAG contact laser. Clinically significant differences in perioperative results between the Nd:YAG contact laser and standard surgery, however, are not well defined. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the Nd:YAG contact laser compared with standard(More)
Imidazole compounds have been shown to be beneficial in systemic sepsis and inflammation. The purpose of this study was to delineate the effects of fluconazole on systemic hemodynamics and on microanatomy of the heart, lung, liver, and kidney parenchyma of swine during graded bacteremia. Eighteen adult swine were studied in three groups: 1), anesthesia(More)
