For diabetic patients requiring coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, controversy persists whether an off-pump or an on-pump approach may be advantageous. As the first US-based, multi-center, r...
We propose a portable, non-powered, long-term working suction pump with a high flow rate for microfluidic devices. The pump is driven by a superabsorbent polymer enclosed in a housing with porous fins...
Renal medullary hypoxia may contribute to cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (AKI). However, the effects of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) on medullary oxygenation are poorly understood. Her...
The current study analyzed and compared early-term outcomes of off-pump versus on-pump beating heart coronary artery bypass surgery.
The Department of Veterans Affairs "Randomized On/Off Bypass" (ROOBY) Trial (CSP #517) was funded in 2001. ROOBY was designed to compare the short-term (30-day) and intermediate-term (1-ye...
The purpose of this study is to determine completeness of revascularization, graft patency, clinical outcomes, health-related quality of life and costs in 200 initial trial participants at...
Ischemic heart disease is one of the most frequent diagnoses in the VA system. Moreover, 5,819 coronary artery bypass graft (CABG-only) procedures were performed in the VA in FY 1999. Thro...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the different performance of arterial and venous graft with intra-aortic balloon pump support following coronary artery bypass.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate whether the patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus in sub-optimal glycemic control can achieve better glycemic control by using the Medtr...
The muscle tissue of the HEART. It is composed of striated, involuntary muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC) connected to form the contractile pump to generate blood flow.
Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).
Compounds that inhibit H(+)-K(+)-EXCHANGING ATPASE. They are used as ANTI-ULCER AGENTS and sometimes in place of HISTAMINE H2 ANTAGONISTS for GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX.
A cytochrome P-450 enzyme subtype that oxidizes several important groups of drugs including many PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS and ANTICONVULSANTS.
Compounds that contain benzimidazole joined to a 2-methylpyridine via a sulfoxide linkage. Several of the compounds in this class are ANTI-ULCER AGENTS that act by inhibiting the POTASSIUM HYDROGEN ATPASE found in the PROTON PUMP of GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
