OBJECTIVE To estimate the training load of specific on court training regimens based on the magnitude of variation of heart rate-lactate response during specific training and to determine the magnitude of variation of biochemical parameters (urea, uric acid, and creatine phosphokinase (CPK)) 12 hours after the specific training programme so as to assess(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to investigate the release pattern of different cardiac biomarkers (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, cardiac troponin I, heart-type fatty acid-binding protein, creatine kinase-MB, and myoglobin) and to establish the diagnostic discrimination limits of each marker protein to evaluate perioperative myocardial injury in patients(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the release pattern of different cardiac metabolites and biomarkers directly from the coronary sinus (CS) and to establish the diagnostic discrimination limits of each marker protein and metabolites to evaluate perioperative myocardial injury in patients undergoing cardiac surgery under cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).

Indian patients undergoing cardiac surgery have different demographics, clinical profile as well as risk profile, compared to the western population. The purpose of this study was to validate the European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation (EuroSCORE) risk stratification model in Indian patients undergoing cardiac surgery in a single cardiac(More)
This prospective study uses heart-type fatty-acid-binding protein (hFABP) and creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB) release to compare myocardial injury in on-pump versus off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Fifty patients were randomly assigned to on-pump or off-pump CABG. The hFABP and CK-MB concentrations were measured in serial venous blood samples(More)
Purpose: Impedance Cardiography (ICG) with its drawbacks to reliably estimate cardiac output (CO) when compared to reference methods has led to the development of a novel technique called Electrical Cardiometry (EC).clusion: The agreement between EC-CO and CCO is clinically acceptable and these two techniques can be used interchangeably.

BACKGROUND Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with considerable blood loss. Computer-assisted surgery (CAS) is different from conventional TKA as it avoids opening the intramedullary canal. Hence, CAS should be associated with less blood loss. METHODS Fifty-seven patients were randomized into two groups of CAS and conventional TKA. In(More)
Continuously growing patient's demand, technological innovation, and surgical expertise have led to the widespread popularity of minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS). Patient's demand is being driven by less surgical trauma, reduced scarring, lesser pain, substantially lesser duration of hospital stay, and early return to normal activity. In addition,(More)
INTRODUCTION This study was designed to elucidate the trends in cerebral venous oxygen saturation in cyanotics and acyanotics undergoing normothermic and hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and its relationship to perfusion flow rates. METHODS Five hundred and forty-eight patients (253 cyanotics) undergoing first surgical correction using CPB were(More)
BACKGROUND Conventional total knee arthroplasty is performed with use of an intramedullary alignment guide, which produces elevated intramedullary pressure that can create fat emboli. Total knee arthroplasty performed via computer-assisted surgery does not require an intramedullary femoral rod, raising the question of whether computer-assisted surgery(More)
