The effects of sanguineous and asanguineous cardioplegia on the generation of myocardial acid in the hypertrophied human heart during aortic clamping and reflow were elucidated by continuous intraoperative monitoring of myocardial pH in 42 patients undergoing valve replacement, with or without coronary bypass. The patients were divided into three groups: Group I (n = 14) received intermittent crystalloid cardioplegia; group II (n = 14) received intermittent blood cardioplegia; and group III (n… CONTINUE READING
