Asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap syndrome (ACOS): current literature review.
TLDR
It is crucial to define asthma, COPD and overlap syndrome (ACOS), as notable clinical entities, which they share common pathologic and functional features, but they are characterized from differences in lung function, acute exacerbations, quality of life, hospital impact and mortality.
Cerebral oximetry in cardiac anesthesia.
TLDR
Clinical validity and applicability of cerebral oximetry based on near-infrared spectroscopy for cardiac surgical patients is reviewed.
Intramural haematoma of the thoracic aorta: who's to be alerted the cardiologist or the cardiac surgeon?
TLDR
The pathophysiology, the symptomatology and the ways of diagnosis and treatment of a rather rare aortic disease called Intra-Mural Haematoma (IMH), which may progress to either outward rupture of the aorta or inward disruption of the intima layer, which ultimately results in aortIC dissection.
Perioperative infusion of low- dose of vasopressin for prevention and management of vasodilatory vasoplegic syndrome in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting-A double-blind randomized
TLDR
Low-dose of infused vasopressin during cardiopulmonary bypass and for the next 4 hours is beneficial for its postoperative hemodynamic profile, reduces the doses of requirements of catecholamines and contributes to prevention of the postcardiotomy vasoplegic shock in the patient with low ejection fraction who is receiving ACE preoperatively.
Thirteen years follow-up of heart myxoma operated patients: what is the appropriate surgical technique?
TLDR
The ideal approach, according to the experience, is right atrial or both atrial incision with excision of the fossa ovalis and the surrounding tissues and closure with a pericardial patch, which provides an excellent long-term survival in patients with cardiac myxoma.
Strategies to prevent intraoperative lung injury during cardiopulmonary bypass
TLDR
Reducing the use of cardiotomy suction device, as well as the contact-time between free blood and pericardium, it is expected that the postoperative lung function will be improved.
Pancoast tumors: characteristics and preoperative assessment.
TLDR
The main characteristics of the disease are presented, the preoperative assessment is focused on, and other lesions may, although less frequently, result in Pancoast syndrome.
Baseline cerebral oximetry values in cardiac and vascular surgery patients: a prospective observational study
TLDR
Compared to cardiac surgery, carotid endarterectomy patients are older, with higher baseline INVOS values and greater stroke frequency, and diabetes and high cholesterol are associated with lower baseline INVos values in carotids surgery.
Harvesting Radial Artery and Neurologic Complications *
TLDR
The rate of motor and sensory abnormality, the potential mechanisms of these complications caused by surgical trauma or devascularization, and any predictive factors of complications are demonstrated.
Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction of the cardiac surgery patient; a point of view for the cardiac surgeon and cardio-anesthesiologist
TLDR
DD with elevated left ventricular end-diastolic pressure can predispose to increased perioperative mortality and morbidity and is often associated with systolic dysfunction,left ventricular hypertrophy or indeed pulmonary hypertension.
