    If lungs could be retrieved for transplantation after circulatory arrest, the shortage of donors might be significantly alleviated. An important issue in using lungs from these so-called non-heart-beating donors is the development of a technique to assess their quality prior to transplantation...

    The purpose of this study was to investigate how the restriction of blood flow and/or ventilation affects the radiofrequency (RF) ablation coagulation size in lung parenchyma. Thirty-one RF ablations were done in 16 normal lungs of 8 living swine with 2-cm LeVeen needles. Eight RF ablations were...

    In rats, injection of monocrotaline (MCT) causes pulmonary hypertension that leads to right ventricular failure. The aim of the present study was to characterize the responses of various vessels (the pulmonary artery, the thoracic aorta and small mesenteric arteries) to noradrenaline (NA;...

    The combination of hypoplastic left heart syndrome and a right-sided aortic arch is extremely rare and lethal. To the best of our knowledge, no patient with this combination has previously been reported as surviving initial palliation. The anatomic variant is associated with abnormalities in the...

    Clinical assessment of cardiac output (CO) is inaccurate, yet the use of the pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) for thermodilution (TD) measurement of CO (COTD) has declined significantly. Can noninvasive impedance cardiography (ICG) now be used to measure CO (COICG) in place of COTD? A literature...

    Single-stage repair has been presented as the treatment of choice for pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aortopulmonary collaterals. This surgical approach may result in the difficult decision of whether to close the ventricular septal defect. This decision may...
