PURPOSE The literature on primary malignant cardiac tumors is relatively limited because of their rare incidence. This study aimed to provide a proposed treatment strategy for primary malignant cardiac tumors. METHODS The follow-up outcomes of 29 patients with primary malignant cardiac tumors operated, and 8 primary malignant cardiac tumors considered not(More)
To assess the effect of basic fibroblast growth factor-binding extracellular matrix (bFGF-ECM) combined with bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) transplantation on acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and explore the underlying mechenisms. Rabbit hearts were processed by decellularization with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) perfusion, heparin(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the cardioprotective effects of morphine on ischemic reperfused rat heart in vitro and its mechanism. METHODS The isolated rat heart was perfused in a Langendorff apparatus. Infarct myocardium was determined by TTC. Coronary flow (CF), heart rate (HR), left ventricular pressure (LVP), the first derivative of ventricular pressure(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the hemostatic efficacy and feasibility of direct injection of fibrin sealant into the sternal marrow cavity in senior patients undergoing on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). DESCRIPTION A total of 82 senior patients undergoing on-pump CABG were randomized to the bone wax group (n=40) or the(More)
Uterine leiomyoma is a common disease in women; however, intravenous leiomyomatosis with intracaval and intracardiac complications is a rare condition. The initial presentation is dependent upon the severity of the intracardiac involvement. In this report, we describe two women with leiomyomatosis originating from the uterus and extending into the inferior(More)
OBJECTIVES To explore effects of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) combined with insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) on transplanted bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs), for treatment of acute myocardial ischaemia. MATERIALS AND METHODS After ligation of the left anterior descending artery, rabbits were divided into a Control group, a Factors group(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects and mechanisms of panaxoside Rg1 on the new vessel formation in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) rats. METHODS The AMI model of male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats was established, and rats were randomly divided into the AMI model group, the treatment group of panaxoside Rg1, the placebo group and the treatment group of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether transmyocardial drilling revascularization combined with heparinized basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF)-incorporating degradable stent implantation (TMDRSI) can promote myocardial regeneration after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS A model of AMI was generated by ligating the mid-third of left anterior(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of exogenous basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on myocardial regeneration after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). METHODS AMI models were established by ligating the mid-third of left anterior descending artery, thereafter, miniswines were randomly divided into control (none treatment, n = 6) and bFGF groups (n =(More)
BACKGROUND In a suitable microenvironment, bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) can transdifferentiate into myocardial cells whose special gene can be expressed as structural proteins. Growth factor (GF) plays an important role in the cell migration, survival and differentiation. However, the effect of GF on the cellular differentiation is not well(More)
