Pulmonary function and hemodynamic studies were made, preoperatively, in 149 patients with predominant, mitral, aortic or combined mitral and aortic stenosis. A sequential postoperative follow-up of the pulmonary function was… (More)
This paper addresses the problem of workflow management in collaborative teamwork environments, where multidisciplinary actors and software applications are involved. Design versions or variants may represent different development stages, partial designs or solution alternatives that need to be integrated together. The paper presents a novel approach to… (More)
Lung function was studied in 24 patients with advanced mitral stenosis scheduled for mitral valve replacement (MVR), and revealed an obstructive ventilatory pattern. Forty per cent of the patients had a forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1)<60% of that predicted in the preoperative period. Twenty-five per cent of those operated upon showed a similar… (More)
