General anesthesia with thoracic epidural anesthesia in the cardiopulmonary bypass surgery reduces apoptosis by upregulating antiapoptotic protein Bcl-2 Authors:Kilickan, Levent; Gonca, Süheyla; Dalcik, C.; Dalcik, H.; Solak, M.; Bayındır, Osman; Suezer, K.; Omay, O.; Kan, E. Cali
Publisher and Date:(Edizioni Minerva Medica, 2006)Aim. The aim of the paper was to investigate whether thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEA) together with general anaesthesia (GA) play a role on apoptosis in humans before cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) before aortic cross clamp (ACC) and at 15 min after ACC release (after ischemia and reperfusion). Methods. Eighty patients scheduled for elective CABG were randomized to receive either GA group (n: 40) or TEA+GA group (n: 40). The right atrial biopsy samples were taken before CPB before ACC and at 15 ...
Thoracic epidural anesthesia preserves myocardial function during intraoperative and postoperative period in coronary artery bypass grafting operation Authors:Kilickan, Levent; Solak, M.; Bayındır, Osman
Publisher and Date:(Edizioni Minerva Medica, 2005)Aim. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEA) in patients with poor ventricular function undergoing conventional coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) during the intraoperative and the postoperative period. Methods. Eighty patients (n=80) undergoing elective CABG surgery with cardiopulmobary bypass (CPB) were divided into 4 groups: 1) General anesthesia (GA) plus poor ventricular (PV) function patients (Group GA plus PV) (n=20) ejection ...
