A technique has been described for the performance of arteriotomy, endarterectomy and vein patch angioplasty on the main left coronary artery and its major branches in calves. Operative survival has been achieved in all cases. Failures attributable to coronary closure were seen in 20 per cent of animals postoperatively. Twenty per cent died of other factors related to thoracotomy and perfusion, and 60 per cent were sacrificed or survived as long-term survivors. Important factors of technique were discussed.

    Abstract: Objective: This study examines the association between avoiding the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) for coronary surgery and postoperative cardiac enzyme (CE) release, and its subsequent impact on survival. Methods: Between January 1999 and September 2002, 3734 consecutive patients...

    We have compared various aspects of coronary endarterectomy and cardiopexy. This latter procedure appears to be a simple and safe operation for coronary heart disease and the results following surgery are most gratifying. The late mortality rate in those patients having had cardiopexy is very...

    Subintimal or false lumen stent deployment is a rare complication of percutaneous coronary interventions. The most balloon-induced small non-flow limiting dissections heal spontaneously and can be treated medically with close observation if distal coronary flow is not compromised. However, the...

    Objective. We investigated the effect of cardiac surgery on a marker of tubular damage, an enzyme called neutral endopeptidase (NEP), and on a marker of tubular function, retinol binding protein (RBP). Markers of tubular damage or function are useful in the early detection of acute renal failure...

    Abstract: Objective: It has been observed that a systemic inflammatory response after on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) participates in the pathogenesis of postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF). In patients undergoing off-pump CABG, it is plausible that inflammation is associated...

    OBJECTIVES The role of coronary endarterectomy (CE) in modern cardiac surgery has been an extant debate as coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has advanced. However, as cardiac surgeons are being referred ever more complex coronary disease for surgical correction, adjunctive strategies may...
