Tumors invading the inferior vena cava (IVC) and hepatic veins pose a challenge for surgeons. Hannoun et al.1 were able to show that the resection of these tumors can be done under hypothermia in the Ante-Situm position. Additionally, not only the localization of the tumor but the remaining volume of the remnant liver (FLR) needs to be considered. Schnitzbauer et al.2 were able to induce massive liver hypertrophy in a short period, combining an in-situ split with a portal vein ligation (ALPPS). As this controversial technique has evolved, a safe ALPPS can be performed nowadays.3 To our knowledge, this is the first case that combines a laparoscopic partial ALPPS with an extended resection requiring cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).

For many patients with repaired congenital heart disease, the need for reintervention on dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tracts is pervasive. Many such patients are poor candidates for both tr...
We are pleased to receive response from Dr. G. Malmqvist and Mr. M. Appelblad to our article "The use of mannitol in cardiopulmonary bypass prime solution - Prospective randomized double-blind clinic...
Electroacupuncture (EAc) has a pulmonary protective effect during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), but its molecular mechanisms including inflammasome activation signaling pathways remains unclear.
To compare the effectiveness of different types of pharmacological agents to reduce organ specific edema following cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB).
Low oxygen delivery during cardiopulmonary bypass is related to a range of adverse outcomes. Previous research specified certain critical oxygen delivery levels associated with acute kidney injury. Ho...
Blood activation induced by cardiopulmonary bypass may compromise the postoperative outcome. The goal of this study is to compare blood activation induced by cardiopulmonary bypass perform...
Does pre-operative administration of Sildenafil (Viagra, Pfizer) reduce the lung injury associated with cardiopulmonary bypass in children undergoing corrective surgical repair of congenit...
The lung is at risk for ischemic insults during total cardiopulmonary bypass because lung perfusion is maintained solely by the bronchial arterial system
Acute kidney injury is a common complication after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). This study aims to investigate the effects of CPB on renal perfusion, filtration and ...
In previous studies, 90% of patients who underwent elective cardiopulmonary bypass procedure manifested CD4 counts of less than 500 cells/microliter in the immediate (day 1) post-operative...
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).
Diversion of the flow of blood from the entrance of the right atrium directly to the aorta (or femoral artery) via an oxygenator thus bypassing both the heart and lungs.
Reduction of blood viscosity usually by the addition of cell free solutions. Used clinically (1) in states of impaired microcirculation, (2) for replacement of intraoperative blood loss without homologous blood transfusion, and (3) in cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermia.
Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.
Condition of low SYSTEMIC VASCULAR RESISTANCE that develops secondary to other conditions such as ANAPHYLAXIS; SEPSIS; SURGICAL SHOCK; and SEPTIC SHOCK. Vasoplegia that develops during or post surgery (e.g., CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS) is called postoperative vasoplegic syndrome or vasoplegic syndrome.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
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...
