    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia seen in clinical practice. In cardiac surgery, one-third of the patients experience episodes of AF during the first postoperative days (postoperative AF), and patients with preoperative AF (concomitant AF) can be offered ablation procedures in conjunction with surgery, in order to restore ordinary sinus rhythm (SR).

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Inför hjärtkirurgi är bedömning av en patients individuella nytta av och risk vid en hjärtoperation en viktig komponent i utredningen inför operationen. En riskstratifiering innebär att patientens olika riskfaktorer (exempelvis sockersjuka, högt blodtryck, antal tidigare hjärtinfarkter, hjärtfunktion) vägs samman till en sannolikhets-bedömning av risken för en viss händelse (t.

    Abstract : Study I: Thirteen patients underwent a modified Ross operation in which the free-standing pulmonary autograft was supported externally by a Dacron vascular prosthetic jacket (DVPJ). The tailor-made DVPJ prevented dilatation of the neo-aortic root significantly following a median follow-up of 47 months compared to a cohort of l3 matched patients undergoing conventional Ross operation.

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

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Ulf Kjellman; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Mellan 15 och 20 % av de patienter som kommer för behandling av gallstenssjukdomen (stenar i gallblåsan) har samtidigt stenar i de djupa gallvägarna (förbindelsegången mellan lever-gallblåsa och tolvfingertarmen). Hos yngre patienter är andelen endast 7-8 %, medan den i äldre patientgrupper kan vara 50 % eller mer. READ MORE
