INTRODUCTION In this article we would like to make an institutional report and our early experience in video-assisted right minithoracotomy approach for mitral valve surgery. CASE REPORT Surgical technique include mitral valve repair or replacement through right lateral minithoracotomy, percutaneous cannulation for venous drainage and optional femoral or(More)
Treatment of patients with "low output" syndrome is very complex as well as surgery method as well as post operative treatment. Surgery requests experience and well trained surgical team which is able to produce off pump revascularization of myocardium and in short period of time eliminate global contra effects of ischemia already damaged myocardium. In(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to examine the impact of antibiotic consumption on development of antimicrobial resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was conducted in University Clinical Center of Sarajevo. In our retrospective study Acinetobacter baumannii isolated in period from July 1st 2009 to December 31st 2012. Isolates(More)
As patients and their physicians become more demanding, the desire to make the procedures "minimally invasive" is growing constantly. In short, "minimally invasive" is a code phrase for life saving procedures which in same time disrupt our quality of life the least. Its goals include reducing incision size, decreasing surgical trauma and pain, and improving(More)
PURPOSE During knee arthroplasty, the leg is placed in several forced positions, which are mainly uncomfortable for all tissue structures in the region, including the vascular structures. Veins have a weaker quality of the wall structure than arteries, so during the forced position morphological and haemodynamic consequences are expected mainly in the(More)
The aim of this study is to compare the effects of colloidal cardioplegia and blood cardioplegia in patients who underwent cardiac surgical procedures with cardiopulmonary bypass, and to evaluate their influence on hemodilution, bleeding and consumption of donor blood products in a retrospective clinical study. 100 male patients who underwent cardiac(More)
Coronary artery aneurysms (CAAs) are rare and their management is controversial. Their incidence varies from 1,5% to 5% of the coronary angiographies, with predilection of the right coronary artery. Unruptured coronary aneurysms are often silent and may remain undiagnosed. The etiology can be either congenital or acquired. We describe a case of a left(More)
The tehniques of myocardial protection in cardiac surgery are innumerable. In this trial we tried to compare two established cardioplegic strategies in elective on-pump surgery (Intermittent antegrade warm blood cardioplegia--Calafiore--) and Kirsch-Solution with Haes). We took the data from our medical documentaton for 115 patients who underwent elective(More)
Nomenclature Historical Pages-1.80 m , AVD is unlikely to be required, and, therefore, 2 should not be routinely included in the CPB circuit unless required intraoperatively. This rationale would also have cost-saving implications. Our study also suffers a number of limitations. First, despite all data being prospectively recorded, it has been analysed(More)
