Objective: To summarize the effect of mild hypothermia on function of the organs in patients with multiple organ dysfunction syndrome after cardiopulmonary bypass surgery. Methods: The patients were randomly divided into two groups, northermia group (n=71) and hypothermia group (n=89). We immediately began cooling the hypothermia group when test results(More)
In the present study, a retrospective analysis of the trends and factors affecting blood glucose and blood lactate levels was carried out for non-diabetic adult patients who had undergone coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. adult patients undergoing CABG surgery were examined. Glucose and lactic acid levels were observed successively during surgery(More)
BACKGROUND A modified cannulation strategy to innominate artery was introduced which differs from traditional cannulation method used in aortic surgeries. CASE PRESENTATION Four patients suffering from aortic dissections with or without other cardiac diseasees underwent surgical treatment by using the modified canulation technique. All patients had an(More)
OBJECTIVES Intimal hyperplasia is a major reason for the restenosis of vein grafts. A vascular external sheath was designed to inhibit intimal hyperplasia of vein grafts. METHODS Using the biodegradable material poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) and fibrin, a high porosity external sheath carrying bosentan with a stratified internal spiral structure was made(More)
Hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels are reverse voltage-dependent, and their activation depends on the hyperpolarization of the membrane and may be directly or indirectly regulated by the cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) or other signal-transduction cascades. The distribution, quantity and activation states of HCN(More)
