Ischaemia and reperfusion occur during almost every cardiac operation, and one of the key elements to achieve a successful operation is to counteract the detrimental effects of induced ischaemia and reperfusion during the operation. The cardiac surgeon is in a unique position to protect the heart before ischaemia is induced and to avoid further damage during the reperfusion period. The surgeon can alter the composition of the reperfusate and the conditions of reperfusion so that the ischaemia… CONTINUE READING
