Inadequate myocardial protection continues to be encountered despite improved methods of cardioplegia delivery. Although myocardial temperature is commonly monitored to assess the adequacy of cardioplegia delivery, its relationship to the metabolic status of the myocardium has not been investigated. We prospectively reviewed patients who underwent valvular heart surgery with blood (n = 47) or crystalloid (n = 48) cardioplegia and continuous measurement of intraoperative myocardial tissue pH and… CONTINUE READING
