The occurrence of hyperbilirubinaemia after heart surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass or post-operative heart failure is fairly common. We investigated the incidence, predictive value, and post-operative outcome of hyperbilirubinaemia after cardiac surgery in an effort to identify potential risk factors and significance on clinical outcome.

Jaundice caused by hyperbilirubinaemia is a physiological phenomenon in the neonatal period. However, severe hyperbilirubinaemia, when left untreated, may cause kernicterus, a severe condition resulti...
Hyperbilirubinaemia is a common disorder in newborns. The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between G6PD 1388 G>A, SLCO1B1 rs4149056 and BLVRA rs699512 variants and the risk of neo...
The likelihood of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is influenced by unmodifiable (gender, aetiology, location, the presence of witnesses and initial...
To evaluate the accuracy of PoCUS in predicting return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), survival to hospital admission (SHA), and survival to hospital discharge (SHD) in adult non-traumatic, non-sho...
Diffuse cardiac amyloidosis is a significant diagnosis with a poor prognosis. Isolated atrial amyloidosis (IAA) is the most common form of cardiac amyloidosis caused by accumulation of alpha-atrial na...
Neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia (NH) is common among healthy neonates and normally resolves within a week. Untreated pathological hyperbilirubinaemia, however, can result in long-term neurolo...
The values of laboratory examinations which are useful for the diagnoses of appendicitis are white blood cell count (WBC), C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte blood sedimentation rate...
Mortality and morbidity remain high after non-cardiac surgery. Known risk factors include age, high ASA grade and emergency surgery. Point-of-care focused cardiac ultrasound may elucidate ...
This is a randomized double blind trial of the use of the use of colloids vs crystalloid solutions for resuscitation of patients after cardiac surgery. Patients are managed with an algorit...
We intend to survey school aged patients following ACL surgery on when they return to school. We will analyze independent variables to determine if any relationship exists that may influen...
A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.
Surgery performed on the heart.
The bestowing of tangible or intangible benefits, voluntarily and usually without expectation of anything in return. However, gift giving may be motivated by feelings of ALTRUISM or gratitude, by a sense of obligation, or by the hope of receiving something in return.
Solutions which, upon administration, will temporarily arrest cardiac activity. They are used in the performance of heart surgery.
A beta-2 agonist catecholamine that has cardiac stimulant action without evoking vasoconstriction or tachycardia. It is proposed as a cardiotonic after myocardial infarction or open heart surgery.
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...
