Cardioprotection of neonatal heart using normothermic hyperkalaemia: the importance of delivery and terminal cardioplegia

Abstract

Cardioprotection of immature hearts remains controversial and largely based on the use of hypothermic cardioplegia. Recent clinical trials in pediatric open-heart surgery suggest that normothermic cardioplegic arrest is also cardioprotective. However, the advantages of using normothermic cardioplegia delivered as single- or multi-dose with or without… (More)
