OBJECTIVE Adult postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock potentially requiring mechanical circulatory support occurs in 0.5% to 1.5% of cases. Risk factors influencing early or long-term outcome after extracorporeal membrane oxygenation implantation are not well described. METHODS Between May 1996 and May 2008, 517 adult patients received extracorporeal membrane(More)
Medical imaging techniques like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) are able to deliver high-resolution 3D images of the human heart. New acquisition techniques even allow measuring 4D images: 3D plus time. They show the details of the contraction of the heart. Multichannel Electrocardiography (ECG) can be used to measure relevant(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiogenic shock after acute myocardial infarction is an indication for emergent coronary artery bypass grafting in patients not amenable to percutaneous coronary intervention. Our study aimed to evaluate and identify risk factors for early and long-term outcomes in such patients. METHODS A total of 508 patients who underwent coronary artery(More)
Mathematical models of cardiac anatomy and physics provide information, which help to understand structure and behavior of the heart. Miscellaneous cardiac phenomena can only be adequately described by combination of models representing different aspects or levels of detail. Coupling of these models necessitates the definition of appropriate interfaces.(More)
The classic tool of assessing learning progress are written tests and assignments. In large groups of students the workload often does not allow in depth evaluation during the course. Thus our aim was to modify the course to include active learning methods and student centered teaching. We changed the course structure only slightly and established new(More)
