Publisher and Date:(Forum Multimedia Publishing LLC., 2003)Background: The aim of the study was to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of the irrigated radiofrequency modified maze procedure through a port-access approach during mitral valve surgery. Methods: Forty-three patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and mitral valve disease underwent a combined procedure through a port-access approach. The indication was a history of continuous AF for more than 6 months in patients eligible for minimally invasive mitral valve surgery. Results: The incidence ...

Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science Inc, 2004)Myxornas are common cardiac tumors that are traditionally managed by complete excision through a median sternotorny approach with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass. We discuss a patient with left atrial myxoma and chronic atrial fibrillation who underwent surgical excision and combined irrigated radiofrequency ablation for atrial fibrillation through a Port Access approach. Minimally invasive operations constitute an expanding field for the treatment of many cardiac diseases and may be an alternative ...
Hemodilution during off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting: Can we improve flow and reduce hypercoagulability? Authors:Güden, Mustafa; Sanisoğlu, İlhan; Sağbaş, Ertan; Ergenoğlu, Mehmet U.; Özbek, Uğur; Akpınar, Belhhan
Publisher and Date:(Forum Multimedia Publishing LLC., 2003)Background: The aim of this study was to compare intraoperative coronary graft flows performed on pump and off pump and to evaluate the effects of hemodilution on coronary graft flows in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) patients by using transit time flow measurements (TTFM). Methods: Three hundred patients undergoing only CABG procedures were enrolled in a prospective randomized manner into 3 groups. Group 1 consisted of 100 patients undergoing operations with standard cardiopulmonary ...
