    The combination of respiratory insufficiency, right heart failure, and depth of shock is thought to result in mortality approaching 100 per cent after pneumonectomy. We did a retrospective review of patients requiring pneumonectomy over 6 years. Data collected included demographics, emergency...

    Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) with increased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) is a frequent complication of congenital heart disease (CHD), most commonly occurring with systemic-to-pulmonary shunt lesions. The natural disease progression involves pulmonary endothelial damage due to...

    Peak circulatory power (CircP), a product of peak exercise oxygen uptake (VO) and peak mean or systolic arterial blood pressure, has proved to be a strong predictor of poor outcome in adults with congenital heart disease. This study sought to compare CircP with other cardiopulmonary exercise...

    Background. The purpose of this study was to access the effects of dexmedetomidine-fentanyl infusion on blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) before surgical stimulation, on their changes to skin incision, and on isoflurane requirement during cardiac surgery in children. Methods. This study...

    A patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is often present in patients undergoing correction of congenital heart disease. It is well appreciated that during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), a PDA steals arterial inlow into pulmonary circulation, and may lead to systemic hypoperfusion, excessive pulmonary...
