The article presents a study on the effect of beta blocker on cardiac recovery and rhythm during cardiac surgeries. In the study, 60 rheumatic heart disease patients undergoing elective single mitral valve replacements were enrolled. The cardiac recovery of patients was assessed on the basis of the heart auto re-beat ratio.

    Gravid patient cardiopulmonary bypass remains a high-risk procedure with regard to fetal preservation. Maternal mortality is similar to that of the nonpregnant female at 1.5–5%. However, fetal mortality remains high at 16–33%, with an average of 19% over the past 25 years, with no...

    The diffusion of minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) during open-heart surgery has increased the use of assisted venous drainage support for cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Peripheral cannulation with small cannulae and vacuum-assisted venous drainage (VAVD) during MICS has been adopted in...

    The use of mini cardiopulmonary bypass circuits is an emerging technology. The venous and cardiotomy reservoir have been excluded from the circuit. This results in a reduction of the blood contact surface area and of the priming volume. Entrainment of venous air, however, remains a draw-back in...

    In this work we investigate the removal of emboli from cardiopulmonary bypass circuits via acoustic radiation force. Unless removed, emboli can be a significant source of cognitive deficit after cardiac surgery. We have implemented both inviscid linear and viscous non-linear models for radiation...
