BACKGROUND Reperfusion injury can occur after a long period of aortic cross-clamping in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy during open-heart surgery, even with the most up-to-date techniques of myocardial protection. In the present study, we examined whether leukocyte depletion as an adjunct to terminal blood cardioplegia (LDTC) attenuates reperfusion injury in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy (LV mass, >300 g; left ventricular end-systolic volume index, >100 mL/m2) in a group… CONTINUE READING
