Recently we have performed continuous hemofiltration (CHF) for the patients of acute renal failure after cardiovascular surgery. In this article, we discuss the effectiveness of CHF in the acute phase of renal failure after cardiovascular surgery compared with hemodialysis (HD). CHF group included 12 cases, and HD group included 19 cases. Two cases (16.7%)(More)
True aneurysms of tibial artery are uncommon. We report a case of a 47-year-old woman who suffered from a distal embolism in the left toes. The surgical intervention involved an aneurysmectomy and the interposition of the posterior tibial artery using the saphenous vein graft. She has been doing well 22 months after the operation.
In twenty seven patients, intraoperative change of ischemic mitral regurgitation before and after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was assessed using transesophageal echocardiography. The size of mitral regurgitation (MR) was determined by the area of MR color flow on the doppler echocardiogram. After CABG, MR area decreased in 20 patients (average:(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of emergency coronary angioplasty on left ventricular remodeling have not been fully evaluated. We compared the effects of emergency coronary angioplasty on left ventricular volume with those of intracoronary thrombolysis in patients suffering from their first acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS A total of 51 patients who had(More)
Twenty-six patients with moderate and severe ischemic mitral regurgitation due to papillary muscle dysfunction underwent mitral valve replacement (MVR) or mitral annuloplasty (MAP) using modified Kay method. Emergent operation was performed in 12 patients of whom 11 had severe congestive heart failure even under IABP, 5 had cardiogenic shock and 9 needed(More)
We present a 57-year-old woman with severe aortic stenosis. She was diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction by electrocardiography and the detection of elevated creatine phosphokinase in another hospital. Soon after transfer to our hospital, this patient developed cardiac arrest. Percutaneous cardiopulmonary support (PCPS) was established, and(More)
