Examines the complications that arise from aortic arch replacement or multiple bypass grafting with valve replacement. Side-effects of long lasting extracorporeal circulation or from myocardial insufficiency due to prolonged myocardial ischemia; Concepts of intraoperative myocardial protection by cardioplegia that counteracted the deleterious effects of ischemia myocardial lesions; Use of the Hamburg-cardioplegic solution for a continued perfusion of the arrested heart.
