Cardiac transplantation: the operative technique


, : Cardiac transplantation: the operative technique. Cardiovascular Clinics 20(2): 133-145

The operative procedure of cardiac transplantation, whether orthotopic or heterotopic, must be performed with meticulous attention to technical detail and hemostasis. The price for technical misadventures and bleeding complications is high in terms of patient morbidity and mortality. Few cardiac surgical procedures are more straightforward than a heart transplant performed in a young individual who has not undergone previous cardiac surgery. Few greater technical challenges exist, however, than the patient in a state of precarious hemodynamic balance undergoing heart transplantation in the wake of one, two, or more previous cardiac surgical procedures. The principles outlined herein will serve as a foundation for the safe performance of cardiac transplantation regardless of the situation.

Photochemical transformations greatly affect the stability and fate of amino acids (AAs) in sunlit aquatic ecosystems. Whereas the direct phototransformation of dissolved AAs is well investigated, their indirect photolysis in the presence of chrom...

Sex differences in birth weight contribute to within-litter variability, which itself is connected to piglet survival. Therefore, we studied whether the sex difference in piglet birth weight is a genetically variable sex dimorphism. For that purpo...

Introduction: We have previously demonstrated that respiratory system compliance is lower in the prone position compared with the supine position in the healthy anesthetized infant1. Transverse chest and pelvic bolsters are commonly employed in th...
