Impact of aortic manipulation on incidence of cerebrovascular accidents after surgical myocardial revascularization
Background. The impact of aortic manipulation on incidence of cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs) was evaluated in patients who underwent myocardial revascularization.
Methods. From January 1988 to December 2000, 4,875 patients had coronary operations; 33 who survived less than 24 hours and 19 who had aortic cannulation without
Conclusions. Aortic manipulation must be avoided in patients with extracoronary vasculopathy. Maintenance of a good hemodynamic status is crucial for any patient to reduce CVA incidence. Patients with extracoronary vasculopathy are at higher risk, and a correct surgical strategy should be tailored for each case.

Background. We investigated the clinical outcome of elective and nonelective myocardial revascularization performed with intermittent aortic cross-clamping. Methods. Prospective data on 800 consecutive

Background. We examined the hypothesis that complete skeletonization of an internal thoracic artery (ITA) results in increased diameter of the graft for anastomosis and therefore improves graft

Background. Intraoperative assessment of the anastomosis is important during coronary bypass on a beating heart. The purpose of this study is to predict the quality of anastomosis using transit-time

Background. In the exploration of facilitated coronary anastomosis strategies, we assessed a new octyl-cyanoacrylate adhesive in combination with a modified end-to-side sleeve anastomosis in off-pump

Background. Of 41 patients who had undergone a left-sided simple maze procedure, 4 (9.8%) developed repetitive tachycardia due to atrial flutter, and required radiofrequency catheter ablation.
