BACKGROUND: The value of cardiac troponin as a risk assessment tool for cardiac disease in the setting of end-stage renal diseases (ESRD) is not equivalent to its value in those with normal renal function. This consideration had not been studied in settings of acute kidney injury (AKI). We aim to explore the diagnostic value of high sensitive troponin T (hsTnT) in the settings of cardiac surgery-induced AKI. METHODS: Single center observational retrospective study...

Three basic principles provide the rationale for the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Congenital Heart Surgery Database (CHSD) public reporting initiative: (1) Variation in congenital and pediatric cardiac surgical outcomes exist. (2) Patients and their families have the right to know the outcomes of the treatments that they will receive. (3). It is our professional responsibility to share this information with them in a format they can understand. The STS CHSD public reporting initiative facilitates the voluntary transparent public reporting of congenital and pediatric cardiac surgical outcomes using the STS CHSD Mortality Risk Model...

BACKGROUND: The pathophysiology of acute kidney injury (AKI) after cardiopulmonary bypass surgery for congenital heart disease is not completely understood. The aim of this study was to carry out a prospective analysis of the diagnostic value of non-invasive monitoring of renal oxygenation and microcirculation by combining laser Doppler flowmetry and tissue spectrometry. METHODS: In 50 neonates and infants who underwent repair (n = 31) or neonatal palliation (n = 19) of congenital heart disease with cardiopulmonary bypass, renal oxygenation, and microcirculatory flow, the approximate renal metabolic rate of oxygen and Doppler-based renal resistive index were determined after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Reports on concomitant cardiac and non-cardiovascular surgeries have noted disadvantages in the use of extracorporeal circulation. We assessed the results of concomitant off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) and non-cardiovascular surgery, and compared them with isolated OPCAB results. METHODS: Of 2,439 patients who underwent OPCAB between 1999 and 2014, 115 patients underwent concomitant OPCAB and non-cardiovascular surgery. Combined non-cardiovascular diseases included 63 malignant and 52 benign diseases...

BACKGROUND: With improvements in short-term mortality after cardiac surgery, the sensitivity of the standardized mortality ratio (SMR) as a performance-monitoring tool has declined. We assessed acute risk change (ARC) as a new and potentially more sensitive metric to differentiate overall cardiac surgical unit performance. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons database and Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society Adult Patient Database was performed...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) in cardiac surgery has traditionally been linked to reduced arterial perfusion. There is ongoing evidence that central venous pressure (CVP) has a pivotal role in precipitating acute renal dysfunction in cardiac medical and surgical settings. We can regard this AKI driven by systemic venous hypertension as 'kidney congestive failure'. In the cardiac surgery population as a whole, when the CVP value reaches the threshold of 14 mmHg in postoperative period, the risk of AKI increases 2-fold with an odds ratio (OR) of 1...

PURPOSE: Aspirin may prevent organ dysfunction in critically ill patients and mitigate transfusion associated acute lung injury. We hypothesized that aspirin use might be associated with decreased morbidity and mortality in massively transfused cardiac surgery patients. METHODS: A single center retrospective cohort study was performed using data from an 8.5-year period (2006-2014). Massive transfusion was defined as receiving at least 2400 ml (8 units) of red blood cell units intraoperatively...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The risk of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) increases in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) due to the frequent use of antiplatelets. There is some data reporting on treatment outcomes in CAD patients presenting with UGIB. We aim to determine the clinical characteristics and outcomes of UGIB in patients with CAD, compared with non-CAD patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a prospective multi-center cohort study (THAI UGIB-2010) that enrolled 981 consecutive hospitalized patients with acute UGIB...

BACKGROUND: Massive DNA destruction/accumulation of cell-free DNA debris is a sensitive biomarker of progressive organ/tissue damage. Deleterious consequences of DNA debris accumulation are evident in cardiac ischemia, thrombosis, auto-inflammatory diseases, SLE-induced lupus nephritis and cystic fibrosis. In case of renal pathologies, degradation and elimination of DNA debris are suppressed, due to downregulated DNAse-I activity within the diseased kidneys. The aim of the current study was to evaluate whether exogenous DNAse-I administration might exert renoprotective effects in the setting of acute kidney injury (AKI or acute renal failure)...

Conventional monitoring during surgery and intensive care is not sufficiently sensitive to detect acute changes in vital organs perfusion, while its good quality is critical for maintaining their function. Disturbed vital organ perfusion may lead to the development of postoperative complications, including neurological sequel and renal failure. Near-infra-red spectroscopy (NIRS) represents one of up-to-date techniques of patient monitoring which is commonly used for the assessment of brain oximetry in thoracic aorta surgery, and - increasingly more often -in open-heart surgery...

BACKGROUND: Perioperative hypertension requires careful management. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) or angiotensin II type 1 receptor blockers (ARBs) have shown efficacy in treating hypertension associated with surgery. However, there is lack of consensus about whether they can prevent mortality and morbidity. OBJECTIVES: To systematically assess the benefits and harms of administration of ACEIs or ARBs perioperatively for the prevention of mortality and morbidity in adults (aged 18 years and above) undergoing any type of surgery under general anaesthesia...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative pain-management with non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs has been controversial, due to related side-effects. We investigated whether there was a significant difference between an oxycodone-based pain-management regimen versus a slow-release ibuprofen based regimen, in a short term post-cardiac surgery setting. Particular attention was given to the rate of myocardial infarction, sternal healing, gastro-intestinal complications, renal failure and all-cause mortality...

Fifteen consecutive prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) patients were operated from March 2009 to September 2014. The average age of patients was 68 years ( range 49 to 82) and 7 patients were male. The interval between initial surgery and reoperation was 62.4 months(range 2.6 to 340.9). Seven of these cases(47%) developed PVE within the 1st year after surgery were defined as early PVE. All microorganisms isolated from blood cultures in early PVE were Staphylococcus species. Generally, the infective prosthetic valve was removed 1st, then all infective tissues were excised from the periannular cavity...
