Tako-Tsubo cardiomyopathy (TK) is an acutely appearing myocardial disease leading to impaired cardiac function, which can barely be distinguished clinically from an acute myocardial infarction. It occurs mainly in postmenopausal women and usually has a good prognosis. The pathophysiology of TK still remains to be elucidated but the favoured hypothesis is(More)
Propofol infusion syndrome has not only been observed in patients undergoing long-term sedation with propofol, but also during propofol anesthesia lasting 5 h. It has been assumed that the pathophysiologic cause is propofol's impairment of oxidation of fatty acid chains and inhibition of oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria, leading to lactate(More)
INTRODUCTION Even among health care professionals, resuscitation performance has been shown to be poor. So far, it remains unclear whether cardiac arrest staff with frequent practice in resuscitation requires training to adapt to the new International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) guidelines of 2005. This study evaluated the need for basic life(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine and interpret the changes in preload, afterload, and cardiac function in the different phases of robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy. DESIGN Prospective, observational monocenter study. SETTING Operating room at a university hospital. PATIENTS 31 consecutive, ASA physical status 1, 2, and 3 patients. INTERVENTIONS(More)
INTRODUCTION Delirium is a frequent complication after cardiac surgery. Although various risk factors for postoperative delirium have been identified, the relationship between nocturnal breathing disorders and delirium has not yet been elucidated. This study evaluated the relationship between sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and postoperative delirium in(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the effects and functional outcome of central extracorporeal life support (ECLS) with left ventricular decompression for the treatment of refractory cardiogenic shock and lung failure. METHODS Between August 2010 and August 2013, 12 consecutive patients (2 female) with a mean age of 31.6 ±(More)
Perioperative myocardial damage occurs with a high incidence depending on the operative procedure and the patients examined and is considered to be among the most relevant risk factors for increased perioperative morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. The pathophysiology of myocardial damage in the perioperative period is still(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence, clinical impact and outcome of perioperative myocardial infarction (PMI) in patients undergoing pancreatic surgery. METHODS A data of 1,625 patients undergoing pancreatic resection were prospectively collected and analysed with regard to PMI. Demographic aspects, co-morbidities and clinical(More)
BACKGROUND In Germany there is currently no national standard for the management of patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The object of this survey was to obtain information on the treatment concept for patients with OSAS and to report on the current practice in Germany. METHODS Data collection was obtained through an online(More)
