OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship of mortality to early resuscitation using two levels of oxygen delivery (DO2) in critically ill surgical patients > or =50 yrs of age who were stratified into groups: age < or =75 yrs (age 50 to 75 yrs group); and age >75 yrs (age >75 yrs group). DESIGN A prospective, randomized trial, continued from a previous(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the frequency of myocardial infarction and mortality during treatment that increased oxygen delivery (DO2) to > or = 600 mL/min/m2. To define the characteristics of patients achieving a high DO2 without inotropes in order to guide future studies. DESIGN A prospective, randomized, controlled trial. SETTING Two surgical intensive(More)
BACKGROUND Thirty-five patients with an intracardiac myxoma underwent excision of the tumor in Hawaii between 1974 and 1993. PATIENTS AND METHODS There were 28 female and 7 male patients in the group. Their ages ranged from 11 to 79 years (mean 48) with the majority (71%) between 30 and 60 years old. The patients' medical records were reviewed and special(More)
BACKGROUND The study purpose is to evaluate the long-term outcome of the in situ pericardial extracardiac lateral tunnel Fontan operation. METHODS From June 1994 to August 2009, 160 patients with single ventricle (boys, n = 96, 60%, median age = 39 months, mean weight 15.5 kg) underwent the pedicled pericardial extracardiac lateral tunnel operation.(More)
Congenital tracheal stenosis is a serious disease associated with high operative mortality and morbidity, especially in the newborn period. Its surgical management involves either sliding tracheoplasty, which is associated with extensive dissection and recurrent stenosis, or with pericardial patch tracheoplasty that fails to address recoiling of the(More)
Although clinical benefit can be achieved after cardiac transplantation of adult c-kit+ or cardiosphere-derived cells for myocardial repair, these stem cells lack the regenerative capacity unique to neonatal cardiovascular stem cells. Unraveling the molecular basis for this age-related discrepancy in function could potentially transform cardiovascular stem(More)
A retrospective study was performed in order to evaluate early morbidity and mortality associated with non-therapeutic operations for penetrating trauma. Over a 3-year period, 1,062 operations were performed on 1,015 patients for penetrating injury: abdomen 860, chest 103, neck 40, and extremities 58. A total of 230 (21.7%) of these operations were(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate whether atrial natriuretic peptide can mimic preconditioning to protect ischemia or reperfusion injury in rabbit hearts. New Zealand white rabbits were randomized into 3 groups: (1) Controls. Hearts received a 60 minute-occlusion of the left anterior descending artery, followed by a 180 minute-reperfusion. (2)(More)
The use of right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduit improved postoperative hemodynamics and survival in hypoplastic left heart syndrome patients. Proximal conduit anastomosis obstruction prompts hypercyanosis and early bidirectional Glenn connection. We describe modification of the proximal right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduit anastomosis to(More)
Cooking meat and fish under normal conditions produces heterocyclic amine mutagens, several of which have been shown to induce colon tumors in experimental animals. In our search for natural dietary components that might protect against these mutagens, it was found that green tea and black tea inhibit the formation of heterocyclic amine-induced colonic(More)
