Background: It has been demonstrated that pre-frailty has more adverse outcomes after cardiac surgery, however, data on prognosis and long-term evolution in pre-frailty patients after card...
Evaluation of the prognosis value of sST2 dosed before cardiac surgery on prognosis of long terme prognosis after cardiac surgery. The patients where initialy recruted for another cohort ...
Cardiac surgery associated acute kidney injury is an independant factor of morbidity and mortality . Despite its delayed elavation, serum creatinine (Cr) remains the goal standard to diagn...
Blood transfusion is related to worse outcomes and the triggers for red blood cells transfusion are not well defined in cardiac surgery. Retrospective studies in cardiac surgery do not sho...
Describe the proportion of patients who underwent cardiac surgery in France and benefiting from a monitoring cardiac output, describe the use of positive inotropic and vasoactive agents fo...
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...
A "boot camp" program is commonly adopted in surgical skills training. Due to a shortage of cardiac surgeons, establishment of a well-designed training curriculum for cardiac surgery residents is need...
Arginine vasopressin (AVP) is a naturally occurring peptide with diverse effects mediated through selective V1 and V2 receptors. About 10% of patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass develop postope...
Postoperative pneumonia is one of the most common complications after cardiac surgery, entailing increased patient morbidity, mortality, and health care burden. The primary aim of this study was to as...
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.
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.
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
