INTRODUCTION Endothelial damage caused by high pressure applied for spasm relaxation during graft preparation is one of the most plausible theories explaining early graft failure. AIM OF THE STUDY We aimed to demonstrate the extent of endothelial damage in saphenous vein grafts distended to different pressure levels by using immunohistochemical methods(More)
This study investigated the role of systemic inflammation in the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). CABG was performed using cardiopulmonary bypass in 77 patients. Pre-operative AF was present in six patients (7.8%) and postoperative AF developed in 13 (18.3%) of the 71 patients with pre-operative sinus(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular complications of cardiac catheterization have increased in line with increasing number of percutaneous interventions. Open repair is the standard method of treatment for true and false aneurysms of femoral artery. We report results of patients operated due to femoral artery pseudoaneurysm after cardiac catheterization. METHODS Data(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to compare patient-controlled thoracic or lumbar epidural analgesia methods after thoracotomy operations. METHODS One hundred and twenty patients were prospectively randomized to receive either thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA group) or lumbar epidural analgesia (LEA group). In both groups, epidural catheters were administered.(More)

AIM Acute renal failure is an important adverse effect of cardiopulmonary bypass that can result in high mortality or morbidity rates. It can be treated with continuous renal replacement therapy after cardiac surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine the factors associated with the mortality and incidence of acute renal failure in patients of post(More)
Although intracardiac metastasis of germ cell tumors is rare, it can be localized in the right or left heart by disseminating spread and give their cardiac symptoms depending on the location of metastatic mass. We present a 38-year-old male patient with a preliminary diagnosis of testicular tumor who was followed by the medical oncology clinic with(More)
BACKGROUND Various adverse effects of homologous blood transfusion detected particularly in open heart surgery, in which it is frequently used, lead researchers to study on autologous blood use and to evaluate the patient's blood better. Due to the complications of homologous blood transfusion, development of techniques that utilize less transfusion has(More)
