Lipoprotein lipase gene polymorphism and lipid profile in coronary artery disease
(COLL AMER PATHOLOGISTS, 2004)
Context.-Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) plays a central role in lipid metabolism hydrolyzing triglyceride in chylomicrons and very-low-density lipoproteins. The PvuII polymorphic variant of LPL gene is common and might affect ...
Combined radiofrequency ablation and myxoma resection through a port access approach
(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 ...
Genetic variations of the apolipoprotein B gene in Turkish patients with coronary artery disease
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2005)
Background: The results of studies that clarify the association of genetic markers at the apolipoprotein B (apo B) gene (EcoRI and XbaI polymorphisms) with coronary artery disease (CAD) are not consistent and suggest that ...
Hemodilution during off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting: Can we improve flow and reduce hypercoagulability?
(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 ...
Vertebral osteomyelitis after cardiac surgery
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2003)
Background. Mediastinitis after open-heart surgery is a serious complication that has a decreasing incidence but still a significantly high mortality rate. Back pain may develop during the course of treatment for mediastinitis ...
Does off-pump CAPG reduce gastrointestinal complications?
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2004)
Background. The aim of this study was to compare gastrointestinal complications and associated risk factors among patients undergoing cardiac surgery using off- and on-pump revascularization techniques. Methods. A total ...
Time flow measurements (TTFM) differ between grafts do transit performed on and off-pump CABG? a comparitive study
(Forum Multimedia Publishing LLC., 2002)
Background: The aim of this study was to compare intraoperative coronary graft flows performed on and off-pump and to evaluate the effects of hemodilution on coronary graft flows in off-pump CABG patients by using TTFM. ...
The use of composite stentless valves with graft extension for the treatment of ascending aortic aneurysms
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2001)
[Abstract Not Available]
Combined radiofrequency modified maze and mitral valve procedure through a port access approach: early and mid-term results
(Oxford University Press, 2003)
Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of irrigated radiofrequency (RF) modified Maze procedure through a port access approach during mitral valve surgery and evaluate early and ...
Comparison of intraoperative transit-time flow measurement with early postoperative magnetic resonance flow mapping - in off-pump coronary artery surgery
(Texas Heart Inst., 2003)
The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate graft patency of off-pump coronary artery surgery intraoperatively by transit-time flow measurement and to compare this technique with postoperative magnetic resonance ...
