PURPOSE: The vasoactive-inotropic score (VIS) is a scale showing the amount of vasoactive and inotropic support. Recently, it was suggested that the VIS after cardiac surgery predicts morbidity and mortality in infants. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the VIS at the end of surgery as a predictor of morbidity and mortality in adult cardiac surgery. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of 129 adult cardiac surgery patients was performed at a university hospital...

OBJECTIVES: Right ventricular (RV) function is impaired after cardiac surgery, possibly because of the opening of the pericardium. In minimally invasive aortic valve replacement, the pericardium is only partially incised. METHODS: A randomized trial compared RV function after ministernotomy versus full sternotomy in 40 adults undergoing aortic valve replacement at the Karolinska University Hospital. Primary outcomes were tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion, RV pulsed-wave tissue Doppler velocity, RV fractional area change and basal and mid-RV transversal diameters on postoperative Days 4 and 40...

BACKGROUND: Low cardiac output syndrome is a main cause of death after cardiac surgery. We sought to assess the impact of glucose-insulin-potassium (GIK) to enhance myocardial protection in moderate- to high-risk patients undergoing on-pump heart surgery. METHODS: A randomized controlled trial was performed in adult patients (Bernstein-Parsonnet score >7) scheduled for elective aortic valve replacement and/or coronary artery bypass surgery. Patients were randomized to GIK (20 IU of insulin, 10 mEq of potassium chloride in 50 mL of glucose 40%) or saline infusion given over 60 minutes on anesthetic induction...

Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the variations between consecutive heartbeats, which depend on the continuous modulation of the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system. HRV has been shown to be effective as a predictor of risk after myocardial infarction and an early warning sign of diabetic neuropathy, and in the cardiology setting is now recognized to be a useful tool for risk-stratification after hospital admission and after discharge. Recent evidences suggest that HRV analysis might predict complications even in patients undergoing cardiac surgery, and the present review summarizes the importance of HRV analysis in adult cardiac surgery and the perspectives for HRV use in current clinical practice...

Prior to the 1970s, pediatric coronary artery bypass surgery (PCABS) was seldomly performed due to the lack of compelling surgical indications. The advent of coronary sequelae secondary to Kawasaki disease (KD) and the occurrence of coronary artery complications due to newly developed procedures, such as the arterial switch operation and early repair for intrinsic congenital coronary malformations, necessitated the development of PCABS. Because children grow rapidly and their life expectancy is very long, with increasing exercise capability requirements, the strategy for PCABS should differ from that for bypass surgery in adults...

BACKGROUND:  Several cardiac surgery risk prediction models based on postoperative data have been developed. However, unlike preoperative cardiac surgery risk prediction models, postoperative models are rarely externally validated or utilized by clinicians. The objective of this study was to externally validate three postoperative risk prediction models for intensive care unit (ICU) mortality after cardiac surgery. METHODS:  The logistic Cardiac Surgery Scores (logCASUS), Rapid Clinical Evaluation (RACE), and Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) scores were calculated over the first 7 postoperative days for consecutive adult cardiac surgery patients between January 2013 and May 2015...

Hemodilution is a common perioperative practice. The deleterious effects of excessive hemodilution and subsequent edema formation have been well documented by numerous authors. Colloid oncotic pressure (COP) is a reliable clinical indicator of hemodilution in cardiac surgery. The intent of this study is to determine if a correlation exists between COP and various patient outcome variables. It would also be helpful to know if there is a particular COP value to avoid preventing or limiting patient morbidity. Blood samples from 61 adult patients (mean age = 70 years old) undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass surgery were collected for COP calculation and comparison...

Utilization of intraoperative autotransfusion (IAT) during cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) has been shown to reduce allogeneic red blood cell transfusion. Previous research has emphasized the benefits of using IAT in the intraoperative period. The present study was designed to evaluate the effects of using IAT on overall hematocrit (Hct) drift between initiation of CPB and the immediate postoperative period. We reviewed 3,225 adult cardiac procedures occurring between February 2016 and January 2017 at 84 hospitals throughout the United States...

During cardiac surgery, myocardial protection is performed using diverse cardioplegic (CP) solutions with and without the presence of blood. New CP formulations extend ischemic intervals but use high-volume, crystalloid-based solutions. The present study evaluated four commonly used CP solutions and their effect on hemodilution during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Records from 16,670 adult patients undergoing cardiac surgery with CPB between February 2016 and January 2017 were reviewed. Patients were classified into one of four groups according to CP type: 4-1 blood to crystalloid (4:1), microplegia (MP), del Nido (DN) and histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate (HTK)...
