Prevention and detection of spinal cord injury during thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic repairs.
TLDR
Maintaining spinal cord perfusion pressure at more than 40 mm Hg by increasing mean distal aortic pressure or withdrawal of cerebrospinal fluid is valuable for preventing paraplegia. Expand
Minimal cardiopulmonary bypass attenuates neutrophil activation and cytokine release in coronary artery bypass grafting
TLDR
Mini-CPB appears to attenuate neutrophil activation and cytokine release after coronary bypass surgery and, in addition, has some beneficial effects on blood conservation. Expand
Is physiologic annular dynamics preserved after mitral valve repair with rigid or semirigid ring?
TLDR
Physio II and RSR could restore the physiologic three-dimensional annular shape, but the annular motion was diminished, and MEMO could preserve both the anteroposterior movement and folding dynamics, but no three- dimensional restoration of the mitral annulus was obtained. Expand
Beneficial Effects of Mini-Cardiopulmonary Bypass on Hemostasis in Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting: Analysis of Inflammatory Response and Hemodilution
TLDR
Mini-CPB attenuated the inflammatory response and hemodilution, resulting in blood conservation in patients undergoing CABG, compared with the conventional group. Expand
Long-term results of mitral valve replacement: biological xenograft versus mechanical valves
TLDR
Mechanical valves require close monitoring of anticoagulation, but their use has decreased the incidence of valve failure and thromboembolism, as compared with the use of biological xenografts, and they are currently the preferred choice for mitral valve replacement. Expand
Analysis of collateral blood flow to the lower body during selective cerebral perfusion: is three-vessel perfusion better than two-vessel perfusion?
TLDR
Visceral organs were perfused to some extent through collaterals and protected from ischemia during SCP; however, the choice of perfusion technique may not be so important under conditions of hypothermia because the difference in CBF between the two methods was small. Expand
Long-term outcomes after entry closure and aneurysmal wall plication for type B aortic dissection.
TLDR
This procedure produces excellent short-term outcomes and low long-term morbidity and could be the procedure of choice in selected patients to prevent paraplegia, although graft replacement is currently the standard treatment for chronic aortic dissecting aneurysm. Expand
Patient-prosthesis mismatch after aortic valve replacement in the elderly
TLDR
Mild PPM occurred in a large proportion of elderly patients undergoing AVR but did not affect midterm survival or LV mass regression and the New York Heart Association classification and the left ventricular mass index. Expand
Functional independence measure for elderly patients undergoing aortic valve replacement
TLDR
The preoperative Functional Independence Measure is effective for assessing preoperative frailty in elderly patients undergoing aortic valve replacement in terms of predicting operative morbidity. Expand
Edaravone protects against tissue damage in the lung and kidney induced by myonephropathic metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
The results suggest that the free radical scavenger edaravone might protect against kidney and lung damage induced by MNMS after reperfusion injury of rat extremities. Expand
