Comments on the use of coronary vein bypass surgery. Determination on the necessity of the procedure to improve the blood supply to ischemic myocardium; Availability of studies which would indicate that the operation improves coronary blood flow and left ventricular function; Use of improved morbidity and mortality to justify that a patient has an anatomical situation which is amenable to surgery.

    A correlation between perfusion modality and vascular dilation induced by endothelial nitric oxide (NO) release has been pointed out in the literature; nevertheless, only a few studies deal with the analysis of patients treated by cardiac surgery. The aim of this work is to analyze endothelial...

    Background: As hypertrophied myocardium predisposes the patient to decreased tolerance to ischemia and increased reperfusion injury, myocardial protection is of utmost importance in patients undergoing aortic valve replacement (AVR) for severe aortic valve stenosis (AS). Methods: Consecutive 314...

    Introduction: Cardiac output is the amount of blood pumped out from left ventricle into systemic circulation within one minute, i.e. product of stroke volume and heart rate. Coronary artery disease occurs as a consequence of reduced blood flow to heart muscle due to partial or total coronary...
