A biochemical and ultrastructural study on myocardial changes during aorto-coronary bypass surgery: St. Thomas Hospital cardioplegia versus intermittent aortic cross-clamping at 34 and 25 degrees C.


The changes induced by continuous aortic cross-clamping in combination with multidose ice-cold St. Thomas Hospital cardioplegia (myocardial temperature below 16 degrees C), or intermittent aortic cross-clamping at 34 or 25 degrees C were evaluated in a randomized study on 72 patients undergoing extensive aorto-coronary bypass surgery. The cumulative release… (More)
