    Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is a common complication following cardiac surgery, occurring in 20% to 60% of patients. Advanced age, history of atrial fibrillation (AF), heart failure, peripheral arterial disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are predictors of POAF. The...

    Background: To set up an experimental model of cadaveric heart in order to evaluate and compare histologic transmurality of lesions immediately caused by different energy sources of anti-arrhythmic epicardial devices. Methods: Procedures were performed on a cadaveric human heart in orthotopic...

    Abstract: Objective: Cardiac surgery may lead to severe oxidative stress due to formation of oxidation products generated during ischemia and reperfusion. We investigated to which extent oxidative stress influences a number of endogenous antioxidants and markers of cellular activation. Methods:...

    Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is an effective form of treatment for patients with ischemic heart disease. This method is well tolerated by majority of patients; however it can cause some complications. The early postoperative atrial fibrillation (AF) is among the most common ones....

    Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). The value of N-terminal (Nt)-pro brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) in predicting AF complicating cardiac surgery is not well studied. Our objective is to determine its predictive value...

    Background: Since the advent of cardiopulmonary bypass, many efforts have been made to avoid the complications related with it. Any component of the pump participates in occurrence of these adverse events, one of which is the type of prime solution. In this study, we aimed to compare the effects...
