Nataliya Titova, K Ray Chaudhuri
Apomorphine infusion or injection is an important dopamine agonist non-oral therapy usually used in advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) with refractory motor fluctuations. The drug also has appreciable efficacy for nonmotor fluctuations and is the quickest to reverse predictable "off" periods. Current subcutaneous administration, however, is complicated by problems associated with needle-based therapies, such as skin nodule formation, skin irritation, and avoidance of this treatment option by needle-phobic subjects...

A 77-year-old male with many comorbidities underwent off pump coronary artery bypass grafting. A severely atherosclerotic ascending aorta was revealed by preoperative computed tomography(CT) and epiaortic echography during operation. Therefore, V-composite saphenous vein grafting was adopted for non left anterior descending artery (LAD) coronary lesions in addition to left internal thoracic artery-left anterior descending artery bypass grafting. He was discharged with no complications and all grafts were confirmed to be patent by postoperative CT...

Operative mortality of Stanford type A aortic dissection( AAD) repair with previous cardiac surgery is high, especially with previous coronary artery bypass grafting. We report an extremely rare case of AAD related to the PAS-Port system. A 68-year-old male patient on dialysis was admitted to our hospital with a diagnosis of AAD. Half a year before he had undergone off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting using PAS-Port system for a proximal anastomosis of a vein graft. Urgent graft replacement of the ascending aorta was performed, and the proximal anastomotic site of the vein graft was attached to the prosthetic graft...

A 73-year-old male with diabetes mellitius was referred to our hospital for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Preoperative coronary angiography revealed three-vessel coronary disease. Minimally invasive coronary artery grafting (MICS CABG) via left thoracotomy was selected to decrease surgical site infection due to severe diabetes. In situ bilateral internal thoracic arteries (BITA) were harvested using a long type Harmonic scalpel. In situ right internal thorac artery( RITA)-left anterior descending artery (LAD), in situ left internal thorac artery( LITA)-high lateral branch (HL), and aorta-saphenous vein graft (SVG)-#4 posterior descending artery were performed...

Cardiovascular diseases continue to be a major cause of mortality and morbidity in the world population. First open heart procedure was performed by Gibbon in 1953, since then many advancements have been introduced to the field of cardiac surgery. Minimally invasive techniques were introduced, which include minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), off-pump technique, minimally invasive valve surgery or transcatheter techniques to implant stentless or sutureless valves. The hybrid strategy to address coronary disease combines catheterisation procedures with standard surgical techniques...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with a composite Y-graft made of the left internal thoracic artery (LITA) and another arterial graft has a risk for hypoperfusion. Changes over time in the diameter of the LITA anastomosed to the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) are not known. METHODS: Data were collected for 71 patients who had undergone coronary angiography (CAG) immediately and at 1 year following off-pump CABG with a composite Y-graft made of the LITA and either the radial artery or the right gastroepiploic artery...

BACKGROUND: Intra-aortic balloon pumping (IABP) markedly increases graft flow after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with cardiopulmonary bypass. We sought to delineate the effects of IABP on graft flow after off-pump CABG (OPCAB). METHODS: The clinical records of 32 patients (25 male, 7 female; mean age: 70 ± 9 years) who underwent OPCAB with IABP between January 2011 and May 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. Thirteen patients (41%) had a history of myocardial infarction, and 13 patients (41%) had a history of percutaneous coronary intervention...

Direct inhibition of H+ ion excretion to the gastric lumen makes proton pump inhibitors (PPI) the most effective drugs against gastric acid-related diseases. Over recent years usage of proton pump inhibitors has increased dramatically. Due to the low costs, high efficacy and rarity of adverse effects, their use is prevalent and often it does not correspond with existing medical guidelines. The literature lists stress ulcer prophylaxis among patients with low risk of bleeding, routine 'gastroprotective' medication during treatment and non-specific abdominal symptoms as the most common patterns of off-label PPI use...

Oxidative stress has been considered to be an important factor contributing to postoperative atrial fibrillation (PoAF). Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) copy number in peripheral blood has been found to be associated with a patient's oxidative stress. Therefore, we sought to determine whether there was association between mtDNA copy number and the onset of atrial fibrillation. mtDNA copy numbers were measured using the quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction in peripheral blood from 485 consecutive patients with sinus rhythm undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting...

Aortocoronary bypass or valve surgery usually require cardiac arrest using cardioplegic solutions. Although, in principle, in a number of cases beating heart surgery (so-called off-pump technique) is possible, aortic or valve surgery or correction of congenital heart diseases mostly require cardiopulmonary arrest. During this condition, the heart-lung machine also named cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) has to take over the circulation. It is noteworthy that the invention of a machine bypassing the heart and lungs enabled complex cardiac operations, but possible negative effects of the CPB on other organs, especially the brain, cannot be neglected...

Circulating levels of microRNAs (miRNAs) and their expression patterns are supposed to serve as signatures for diagnosis or prognosis of cardiovascular events. The present study aimed at determining if there is any correlation between the release pattern of 2 miRNAs and the plasma levels of conventional biomarkers cardiac troponin I (cTnI), creatine kinase (CK) and uric acid (UA) in patients undergoing their first off-pump coronary artery bypass graft (OCABG). Seventy OCABG patients (69% men, aged 59.2±8.2years) were enrolled...

With the highly competitive development of communication technologies, modern information manufactures place high importance on the ability to control the transmitted signal using easy miniaturization materials. A controlled and miniaturized optical information device is, therefore, vital for researchers in information and communication fields. Here we propose a controlled signal transport in a doubly clamped carbon nanotube system, where the transmitted signal can be controlled by another pump beam. Pump off results in the transmitted signal off, while pump on results in the transmitted signal on...

Several proximal anastomosis devices have been developed to facilitate the creation of a clampless, hand-sewn coronary artery bypass-to-ascending aorta anastomosis. An Enclose II anastomosis assist device (Novare Surgical Systems, Cupertino, CA) is a device commonly used for this purpose. We demonstrate a new, easy, and safe technique for cutting the aortic wall and making a punch hole over the aorta.

OBJECTIVE: The usage of on or off cardiopulmonary bypass in patients with coronary artery disease receiving coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery had been debated and had not yet been investigated thoroughly in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). We aimed to study cardiovascular outcomes and total mortality in these patients by using our National Health Insurance (NHI) database. METHOD: By using our NHI ESRD claim database, we searched ESRD patients aged more than 18years, who received CABG and divided them into on pump and off pump groups...

PURPOSE: Transthoracic (TTE) and transesophageal echocardiograms (TEE) are considered accurate in detecting the presence of left ventricular (LV) thrombus. A persistent LV thrombus poses risks of pump thrombosis and stroke in LVAD recipients. The relationship between preoperative echocardiography and intraoperative findings at LVAD implantation has not previously been studied. METHODS: A retrospective review examined all patients undergoing LVAD placement or exchange from October 2011 to March 2014...
