  2. 2. Cardioplegia and cardiac function : evaluated by left ventricular pressure-volume relations

    Author : Anders B. Ericsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; cardioplegia; simultaneous cardioplegia; intermittent warn cardioplegia; cardiac function; pressure-volume loops; conductance catheter; heart rate;

    Abstract : Purpose: This thesis is focused on studies of blood cardioplegia in order to evaluate regimens of myocardial protection during cardiac surgery. To further bring down operative mortality and morbidity, in patients with acutely ischaemic hearts, an optimal peroperative myocardial management is essential. READ MORE

  3. 3. Metabolic intervention during blood cardioplegia. Clinical studies in coronary surgery and heart transplantation

    Author : Ulf Kjellman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac surgery; heart transplantation; oxygen extraction; substrate metabolism; predictors of ischemic injuries; a - ketoglutarate; insulin;

    Abstract : Myocardial ischemia and injury (infarction) during open heart surgery and heart transplantation is a problem in spite of the fact that it is a safe procedure today. The myocardial substrate metabolism is well investigated before and after the cardioplegic period but little knowledge exists about the myocardial metabolic changes during cardioplegia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cellular monitoring in open heart surgery. Monitoring of markers for ischemia, free amino acids, glucose and lactate in the myocardial interstitial fluid before, during and after cardiac surgery using microdialysis technique

    Author : Charles Kennergren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiac surgery; myocardial ischemia; microdialysis; interstitial markers; ASAT; troponin-T; amino acids; glucose; lactate;

    Abstract : Protection of the myocardium during open-heart surgery is a field of intense development. Numerous protocols have been proposed to minimize ischemia, since the beginning of open-heart surgery more than 40 years ago. READ MORE

  5. 5. Atrial Fibrillation after Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery : A Study of Causes and Risk Factors

    Author : Lena Jidéus; Dan Lindblom; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The aim was to study pathophysiological mechanisms and risk factors for developing atrial fibrillation (AF) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), and the effect of thoracic epidural anaesthesia (TEA).The study comprised 141 patients undergoing CABG, including 45 patients randomised for TEA intra- and postoperatively.
