OBJECTIVES Mediastinal radiation for thoracic malignancies uses multiple treatment fields and doses. We investigated whether more extensive radiation exposure is associated with more hospital complications and worse survival after cardiac surgery. METHODS From January 2000 to January 2005, 230 patients underwent cardiac surgery after 3 levels of(More)
Low-molecular-weight heparin and acetyl salicylic acid have become an established treatment for unstable angina. A retrospective study on our database of one year was carried out to see what impact preoperative low-molecular-weight heparin versus none had on the postoperative course of 473 patients having coronary surgery exclusively. Apart from the fact(More)

The article gives an account of postgraduate training in surgery. It describes the hierarchy in hospitals, the teaching and the examination system. It also describes use of a formal medical audit and the different working hours. It further presents the pros and cons of evaluation based on exams alone, and on operation lists alone.
Objective: Using the Ley prosthesis, a 0.5 mm thick titanium alloy plate for stabilising the sternum, is a new method in the treatment of mediastinitis after open-heart surgery. We report a retrospective analysis of our experience with this device. Methods: One hundred consecutive cases of post-operative mediastinitis in the period 1992±1997 were reviewed.(More)
BACKGROUND Epicardial lead placement for biventricular pacing is often a rescue procedure after failed coronary sinus cannulation. This study aims to determine perioperative and early postoperative outcome of minimally invasive left ventricular lead placement as a management strategy for heart failure, comparing minithoracotomy and endoscopic approaches.

BACKGROUND Apical ventricular septal defects (VSDs) are difficult to visualize through a transatrial approach, while the use of a left ventriculotomy may result in progressive ventricular dysfunction. Transcatheter closure has not been reliable, especially in small infants. Apical right ventriculotomy provides good exposure, preserves left ventricular(More)
