Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a global problem which predicts immediate and long-term adverse outcomes. We evaluated the AKI progression to end-stage renal disease, as well as the mortality associated with AKI and the in-hospital readmission rate because of a cardiovascular event in AKI patients admitted in a nephrology ward. A 5-year retrospective study was set in a nephrology department, with a follow-up period of up to 8 years. In a total of 191 patients, mean age was 73.83 ± 12.49 years, and 137 (71...

OBJECTIVE: del Nido solution (DNS) is a single-dose cardioplegia designed for pediatric use proposed to offer superior myocardial protection in adults. However, few data support this claim. We hypothesized that DNS and modified blood cardioplegia solution (BS) provide equivalent safety in combined adult valve surgery. METHODS: Between November 2014 and December 2015, 25 patients underwent primary aortic valve replacement and concomitant coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with DNS...

BACKGROUND: Literature search reveals that postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) occurs in 15%-40% of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients. Although several risk models exist for predicting the development of POAF, few have studied left atrial appendage (LAA) velocity. We hypothesize that an association between LAA velocity and development of POAF exists. DESIGN AND METHODS: Single institution university hospital prospective observational clinical study performed between May 2016 and November 2016 in 96 adult patients undergoing CABG surgery utilizing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB)...

OBJECTIVE: Contemporary anesthetic techniques have enabled shorter sedation and early extubation in off-pump and minimally invasive coronary artery bypass (CABG) surgery. Robotic-assisted CABG represents the optimal surgical approach for ultrafast track anesthesia, with patients able to bypass the cardiac surgical intensive care unit with recovery in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU) and inpatient ward. METHODS: In-hospital postoperative outcomes from ninety patients who underwent either elective or urgent robotically-assisted CABG at our institution were reviewed...

PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES: A quality improvement project was conducted to create a sustainable continuum of care for increased volumes of outpatients receiving percutaneous coronary interventions. Dramatic growth exposed system vulnerabilities and left staff overwhelmed. Four postinterventional project objectives included reducing preprocedural preparation times, reducing bleeding complications, reducing hospital length of stay, and collectively increasing patient satisfaction. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT: Amidst creating a specialized postintervention coronary recovery area and acquiring and training existing preregistration and recovery nurses, a fragmented system of care was united...

INTRODUCTION: Adverse neurocognitive outcomes are still an important cause of morbidity and mortality after cardiac surgery. The most common neurocognitive disorders after conventional cardiac surgery are postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD), stroke and delirium. Minimal invasive cardiac procedures have recently been introduced into practice. Endoscopic coronary artery bypass grafting (Endo-CABG) is a minimal invasive cardiac procedure based on the conventional CABG procedure. Neurocognitive outcome after minimal invasive cardiac surgery, including Endo-CABG, has never been studied...

As it is the case globally, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) make up the most frequent cause of death in Turkey also. Due to this fact, cardiac rehabilitation (CR) has gained a highly important role in the treatment of coronary artery diseases. In Turkey, mortality and morbidity rates among the elderly patients are significantly high. Disability due to coronary artery diseases is more frequent in the elderly compared to young patients. So, it is clear that CR has a considerable importance in this special group of patients...

BACKGROUND: Outcomes of patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are strongly correlated to the time interval from hospital entry to primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI). Current guidelines recommend a door to balloon time of < 90 minutes. OBJECTIVES: To reduce the time from hospital admission to PPCI and to increase the proportion of patients treated within 90 minutes. METHODS: In March 2013 the authors launched a seven-component intervention program:  Direct patient evacuation by out-of-hospital emergency medical services to the coronary intensive care unit or catheterization laboratory Education program for the emergency department staff Dissemination of information regarding the urgency of the PPCI decision Activation of the catheterization team by a single phone call Reimbursement for transportation costs to on-call staff who use their own cars Improvement in the quality of medical records Investigation of failed cases and feedback...

BACKGROUND: Hospital evaluation of patients with chest pain is common and costly. The HEART score risk stratification tool that merges troponin testing into a clinical risk model for evaluation emergency department patients with possible acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has been shown to effectively identify a substantial low-risk subset of patients possibly safe for early discharge without stress testing, a strategy that could have tremendous healthcare savings implications. METHOD AND RESULTS: A total of 105 patients evaluated for AMI in the emergency departments of 2 teaching hospitals in the Henry Ford Health System (Detroit and West Bloomfield, MI), between February 2014 and May 2015, with a modified HEART score ≤3 (which includes cardiac troponin I <0...

OBJECTIVE: Published data suggest that permissive anemia strategies that allow nadir hemoglobin (nHb) values of 7 g/dL or lower are safe in a variety of clinical settings. The appropriateness of these strategies in patients at high risk for adverse postoperative cardiac events remains unclear. We sought to determine the combined effect of postoperative nHb and cardiac risk status on major complications after vascular surgical interventions. METHODS: This was a single-institution retrospective analysis of consecutive patients who underwent elective open procedures for occlusive vascular disease and aneurysm repair, either open or endovascular...
