Cytoreductive surgery with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is a long and complex procedure with significant blood and fluid loss during debulking and important pathophysiological alterations during the HIPEC phase. We performed a retrospective analysis of 78 consecutive patients undergoing cytoreductive surgery with HIPEC at a university(More)
OBJECTIVE The systemic renin-angiotensin system is highly activated during septic shock. This has focused interest in regulation of the adrenal angiotensin II type 2 receptor (AT2) as the target thought to mediate angiotensin II-induced adrenal catecholamine release during experimental sepsis in vivo. In addition, the influence of typical endogenous(More)
Our study aimed to characterize the mechanisms underlying the attenuated cardiovascular responsiveness toward the renin-angiotensin system during sepsis. For this purpose, we determined the effects of experimental Gram-negative and Gram-positive sepsis in rats. We found that sepsis led to a ubiquitous upregulation of NO synthase isoform II expression and to(More)
We have analysed the clinical agreement between two methods of continuous cardiac output measurement pulse contour analysis (PCCO) and a continuous thermodilution technique (CCO), were both compared with the intermittent bolus thermodilution technique (BCO). Measurements were performed in 26 cardiac surgical patients (groups 1 and 2, 13 patients each, with(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The present study investigated whether positioning of the heart during off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting leads to changes in regional cerebral oxygen saturation measured by near infrared spectroscopy. METHODS In 35 consecutive patients undergoing elective off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting, cerebral oxygen saturation(More)
The reduced pressure response to vasopressin during acute sepsis has directed our interest to the regulation of vasopressin V(1A) receptors. Rats were injected with lipopolysaccharide for induction of experimental gram-negative sepsis. V(1A) receptor gene expression was downregulated in the liver, lung, kidney, and heart during endotoxemia. Inasmuch as the(More)
We studied the intubating conditions, haemodynamic and endocrine changes following tracheal intubation during sevoflurane anaesthesia guided by Bispectral Index (BIS) monitoring in 40 children who received either remifentanil 1 microg.kg-1 (group R) or saline 1 ml.kg-1 (group S). Acceptable intubating conditions were found in all patients in group R (n =(More)
This study was done to investigate the influence of Gram-negative and Gram-positive sepsis on the expression of the three isoforms of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) gene in rat liver and kidney. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were treated with lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 10 mg/kg i.v.) as an in vivo model for Gram-negative sepsis or lipoteichoic acid (LTA, 10 mg/kg(More)
Measurement of surface tissue pO2 (ptO2) with surface electrodes is increasingly applied in experimental medicine. Its use on the beating heart may seem to be problematic because transmural gradients of tissue pO2 would reduce the validity of pO2 determinations in the epicardial layers. This study attempted to determine whether ptO2 may be a valid and(More)
