Ca-channel currents have been investigated in single cells isolated from adult human atrium using the whole-cell patch clamp technique. Ca-channel currents are activated at voltage positive to -40 mV, peak between -10 and 0 mV and inactivate with a slow decay when Ba2+ ions (5 mM) are used as charges carrier. These properties correspond to those of the high(More)
We have studied the cardiovascular effects of nitrous oxide after cardiac ischaemia-reperfusion injury caused by aortic cross-clamping and unclamping during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). At the time of chest closure, 20 patients were allocated randomly to receive oxygen and air (FIO2 = 0.5) or 50% nitrous oxide in oxygen in addition to anaesthesia(More)
Background: Despite current aging of patients proposed for cardiac surgery, published results of type A dissection repair in the elderly are sparse and controversial though an increased operative risk when compared to younger patients is well-documented. Whether any patient of an advanced aged suffering from acute dissection of the proximal aorta should be(More)
