Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a well established treatment modality for patients with coronary artery disease. For 30 years now CABG operations have been performed with the hel...
An Efficacy and Safety Study for Nesiritide in Heart Failure Patients With Reduced Kidney Function Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery Requiring Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB Pump or Heart Lung Machine)
The purpose of this study is to assess whether nesiritide compared to placebo when given with standard of care therapies, helps preserve kidney function in heart failure (HF) patients unde...
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...
Cardiopulmonary bypass is done with a machine that does the work of the heart and lungs during open-heart surgery. This study is to determine if intravenous (i.v.) phenoxybenzamine is saf...
Dexmedetomidine is increasingly used for sedation in children placed on cardiopulmonary bypass for heart surgery. It is also often used after surgery and may be particularly helpful for ch...
Herein, we report the case of a 49-year-old man with a potentially fatal allergy to propofol and remifentanil who underwent awake minimally invasive mitral valve surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass us...
We routinely start cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) for pediatric congenital heart surgery without homologous blood, due to circuit miniaturization, and blood-saving measures. Blood transfusion is appl...
Neonates undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are at risk for excessive bleeding. Blood is anticoagulated with heparin during CPB. Heparin activity is reversed with protamine at the end of CPB. Par...
The mechanism of mitochondrial dysfunction following cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in diabetics lacks understanding. We hypothesized that impaired beta-oxidation of fatty acids leads to worsened stress...
Cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is associated with acute kidney injury, and the risk increases with low oxygen delivery during CPB. We hypothesized that renal oxygenation could be im...
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.
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.
Disturbances in the mental process related to thinking, reasoning, and judgment.
