Risk score derived from pre-operative data analysis predicts the need for biventricular mechanical circulatory support.
Early planned institution of biventricular mechanical circulatory support results in improved outcomes compared with delayed conversion of a left ventricular assist device to a biventricular assist…
Therapeutic Delivery of Cyclin A2 Induces Myocardial Regeneration and Enhances Cardiac Function in Ischemic Heart Failure
This approach of inducing endogenous myocardial regeneration provides proof-of-concept evidence that cyclin A2 may ultimately serve as an efficient, alternative therapy for heart failure.

Total myocardial apelin and APJ receptor levels increase in compensation for ischemic cardiomyopathy, as demonstrated by western blot and enzyme immunoassay analysis.
Ethyl pyruvate enhances ATP levels, reduces oxidative stress and preserves cardiac function in a rat model of off-pump coronary bypass.
Placental Growth Factor Provides a Novel Local Angiogenic Therapy for Ischemic Cardiomyopathy
Intramyocardial delivery of PlGF following a large myocardial infarction enhanced border zone angiogenesis, attenuated adverse ventricular remodeling, and preserved cardiac function may be useful as an adjunct or alternative to standard revascularization techniques in patients with ischemic heart failure.

A minimally invasive approach to the resection of aortic valve papillary fibroelastoma to decrease operative trauma, reduce postoperative bleeding, decrease pulmonary complications, and expedite recovery from surgery is demonstrated.
Creatine phosphate administration preserves myocardial function in a model of off-pump coronary revascularization.
A strategy of intravenous high-energy phosphate administration successfully prevented ischemic ventricular dysfunction in a rodent model of OPCAB.
