BACKGROUND Transpulmonary thermodilution (TPTD) is an increasingly popular method used to monitor the complex hemodynamic changes in critically ill children. The purpose of our study was to examine the relationship between transthoracic echocardiographic (TTE) parameters and global hemodynamic variables derived from TPTD and those derived from conventional(More)
INTRODUCTION Since no clinical data are available on the comparison of the "shock on T-wave" and "high frequency burst" ventricular fibrillation (VF) induction modes during defibrillation threshold (DFT) testing, we aimed to compare these two methods during implantable cardioverter defibrillator implantation. METHODS The DFT was determined with a(More)
BACKGROUND The secondary forms of hemolytic uremic syndrome/thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (secondary TMA) emerge as complications of coexisting diseases. OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that secondary TMA could be characterized by the presence of relative ADAMTS13 deficiency and complement activation, and this relationship may have a prognostic value for(More)
OBJECTIVES Monitoring and preserving adequate perfusion and oxygen balance is a primary objective of critical care. This prospective observational study aimed to assess the relationship between global haemodynamic parameters and variables reflecting tissue oxygenation during the early period following corrective cardiac surgery in neonates and infants. The(More)
Medical history of a 36 year old woman with severe combined valvular deformities and frequent failure of the circulation inspite of the treatment with digitalis is reported. Impairment of the circulation gradually lead to the so called "low flow state" which resulted in infarction of the small intestine without vascular occlusion. Inspite of the urgent(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to investigate the role of the insulin and glucose content of the maintenance fluid in influencing the outcomes of pediatric patients undergoing heart surgery. METHODS A total of 2063 consecutive pediatric patients undergoing cardiac surgery were screened between 2003 and 2008. A dextrose and an insulin(More)
