Resuscitation thoracotomy is a rarely performed procedure whose use, in France, remains marginal. It has five specific goals that correspond point-by-point to the causes of traumatic cardiac arrest: decompression of pericardial tamponade, control of cardiac hemorrhage, performance of internal cardiac massage, cross-clamping of the descending thoracic aorta, and control of lung injuries and other intra-thoracic hemorrhage. This approach is part of an overall Damage Control strategy, with a targeted operating time of less than 60minutes...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the early and late results of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in a cardiology hospital and to try to detect prognostic determinants of both short- and long-term survival. METHODS: A series of 557 patients who suffered cardiorespiratory arrest (CRA) at the Dante Pazzanese Cardiology Institute over a period of 5 years was analyzed to examine factors predicting successful resuscitation and long-term survival. RESULTS: Ressuscitation maneuvers were tried in 536 patients; 281 patients (52...

Chronic cardiac failure is a common complication of coronary artery disease and hypertension. It is observed above all in the elderly and represents a high public health cost, mainly due to hospital admissions. The education of patients with cardiac failure, and their families', will contribute to an improved cost/efficacy ratio of the management of this pathology. This educative process comprises a simple description of cardiac failure, its symptoms and aetiologies. Dietary advice is very important (salt intake, drinks...

In discussing a case of isolated A-V block, the authors note that this condition occurs frequently in association with other cardiac and non-cardiac foetal malformations. Diagnosis of this type of disorder has been greatly facilitated by the development of ultrasonography. Obstetric management depends on the degree of malformation. Neonatal monitoring is mandatory, as is the presence of a paediatric ressuscitation team at delivery.

A great number of congenital heart diseases are now amenable to treatment before school age. A homogeneous experience of 158 cases operated upon made it possible to make the follow remarks:--The operative mortality before the age of 1 year remains high, in view of the difficulties of ressuscitation, but mainly because of the severity of the heart disease to treat. --Between the ages of 1 and 5 years, the risk decreased with experience, and for the heart diseases most frequently encountered, lethality fell to 2...

The best chances of survival for a new-born depend on the following factors: the possibility of clinical and haemodynamic diagnosis of the malformation, adequate reanimation and surgery. All this must be carried out as early as possible. Although catheterization is very risky it should be complete and as fast as possible, under monitoring of ventilation and haemodynamies. Reanimation is very important before, during and after surgery; it should be more preventive than curative. Very often, surgery is only palliative at this age...
