Tight perioperative glucose control is associated with a reduction in renal impairment and renal failure in non-diabetic cardiac surgical patients
In non-diabetics, tight perioperative blood glucose control is associated with a significant reduction in postoperative renal impairment and failure after cardiac surgery according to the RIFLE criteria, as well as 30-day mortality, despite of a relatively short ICU stay.
Dynamic Tight Glycemic Control During and After Cardiac Surgery Is Effective, Feasible, and Safe
The Aalst Glycemia Insulin Protocol is effective for maintaining tight perioperative blood glucose control during cardiac surgery with minimal risk of hypoglycemia.
Preinduction glycemia and body mass index are important predictors of perioperative insulin management in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.
Dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction caused by afterload reduction induced by intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation.
Endovascular treatment of concomitant patent ductus arteriosus and type B aortic dissection in a patient with pulmonary artery dissection.
Perfusion techniques for port-access surgery
A method of using the portaccess technique will be described, and some elementary results of the first forty patients will be discussed.
Hybrid cardiac revascularization using a totally closed-chest robotic technology and a percutaneous transluminal coronary dilatation.
Use of ketanserin in the treatment of hypertension following coronary artery surgery.
Postoperative residual curarisation is still an issue when weaning patients in intensive care following cardiac surgery.
Endoscopic Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Surgery After Previous Cardiac Surgery
Video-assisted minimal access correction of atrioventricular valve disease after previous cardiac surgery is not only feasible but had lower than predicted mortality and strong patient satisfaction and should therefore be used more frequently in today’s practice.
