Cerebral septic emboli complicate the cases in 20% to 40% of patients with left-sided endocarditis but the management of these patients who require a valvar operation remains unclear. From 1980 to 1988, the incidence of cerebral septic embolus was 42% (n = 45) among 106 patients with endocarditis who underwent valve replacement at the University of Illinois(More)
The significance of septic emboli to the spleen is inferred by the frequency of septic emboli in general seen in patients with left-sided infective endocarditis who are referred for valve replacement. To determine the proper management of splenic infarcts and abscess due to septic emboli, we retrospectively reviewed the records of 108 patients with(More)
Review of 354 infants and children who had skull roentgenography for head trauma over a 21/2-year period revealed a low incidence of fractures (4.2%) and no serious intracranial complications. With the exception of one patient with an elevated surgically depressed skull fracture, treatment was not changed because of the detection of a fracture. Thus, in the(More)
OBJECTIVE The heart of the young Syrian cardiomyopathic hamster (CMH) displays discrete patches of active myocytolytic necrosis and it has been hypothesised that these lesions are triggered by arteriolar spasm. Accordingly, we tested the theory that the coronary vasoconstrictor response to arginine vasopressin (AVP) infusion is more vigorous in the actively(More)
This experimental study was undertaken to evaluate the hypothesis that cardioplegic arrest at 37 degrees C is superior to 10 degrees C cardioplegic arrest in the myocardial protection of an acutely injured heart. The hypothesis was tested using Sprague-Dawley rat hearts that were excised and retroperfused with Krebs-Henseleit buffer as isolated, isovolumic(More)
Bilateral adrenal hemorrhage and acute adrenal insufficiency were diagnosed after coronary bypass grafting in a 65-year-old man. The symptoms were nonspecific and easily mistaken for other postoperative complications. Diagnosis was based on finding of adrenal hemorrhage on computed tomogram and confirmed biochemically with an adrenal stimulation test.(More)
The authors describe a technique for aortic valve repair in patients with aortic regurgitation with excellent intermediate term results avoiding the complications of prosthetic valve replacement. Conservation of native valve tissue will obviate complications associated with prosthetic valves.
A calcified ascending aorta makes coronary bypass surgery more difficult and is a major risk factor for perioperative strokes. We describe a technique in which coronary revascularization is achieved with an in situ right gastroepiploic artery. This approach minimizes manipulation of the diseased aorta.
