Abstract  Cardiac surgery in Stockholm grew on a sound foundation of well‐developed general thoracic surgery. The portal figure is Clarence Crafoord (1899–1983) who already in 1927 had succeeded with the Trendelenburg pulmonary embolectomy operation. He went on to develop lung surgery in general. With foresight he stimulated the chemists of Karolinska Institute to purify heparin, first for prophylaxis against venous thromboembolism and later for use with the heart‐lung machine. In 1944 he…

TLDR
The investigations presented in this paper clearly demonstrates the importance of well-designed studies when new surgical methods are introduced and the value of shunt in OPCAB was clearly demonstrated by the randomized studies.
Long-Term Results of Balloon Angioplasty for Native Coarctation of the Aorta in the Surgical Specialty Teaching Hospital/Cardiac Center/Hawler
TLDR
Balloon angioplasty of native aortic coarctation can be performed safely and effectively with good immediate outcome and offers satisfactory long-term results with low incidence of persisting restenosis, hypertension and aneurysm formation.
Making heart-lung machines work in India: Imports, indigenous innovation and the challenge of replicating cardiac surgery in Bombay, 1952-1962
TLDR
The confluence of the many interests that made Sen and Dastur’s work possible facilitated the uneasy co-existence of conflicting judgments about the success or failure of this medical innovation.
Prevalence of Complications Following Unifocalization and Pulmonary Artery Reconstruction Procedures
TLDR
Complications were relatively frequent in this cohort of patients and had a linear association with hospital length of stay and major adverse cardiac events were encountered at a modest prevalence but had a profound impact on measures of outcome.
Platelet Inhibition and Bleeding Complications in Cardiac Surgery Patients - Clinical and experimental studies
TLDR
DAPT with ticagrelor allows shorter discontinuation time before surgery than clopidogrel, and timing of surgery may be aided by platelet function testing, and the role of platelet inhibition in patients operated for acute aortic dissection was examined.
Fibrinogen, platelet and factor XIII supplementation in cardiac surgery: In vitro and in vivo studies
TLDR
The results suggest that transfusion with fibrinogen or platelets improve hemostasis, whereas factor XIII should remain a secondary tool in the treatment of perioperative bleeding.
heart surgery and its consequences for well-being – the perspectives of patients , relatives and health care professionals
Introduction: Adjustment to open heart surgery (OHS) is complex and necessitates multidimensional explanations. The surgery does not always provide the desired outcome, which can contribute to
Open heart surgery and its consequences for well-being: the perspectives of patients, relatives and health care professionals
TLDR
OHS was experienced as a great challenge, which changed the patients and made them fragile, but those with depressed mood experienced disruptions while finishing their transitional process, which impeded reorientation.
