Mitral valve replacement (MVR) plays a central role in the management of patients with mitral stenosis with moderate to severe pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension has an impact on short term outcome of MVR. It can influence left ventricular function (low output syndrome), incidence of arrhythmia, ARDS leading to respiratory failure and right ventricular failure which may be irreversible.
Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) is expensive, uses disposable appliances and patients require more perioperative intensive care, long stay in hospital and often have a lengthy recovery time. These complications, together with the growing trend towards less invasive techniques in other areas of surgery, have encouraged cardiac surgeons to see if minimally invasive cardiac surgery can become a reality with improved outcomes and costs.
Postoperative cardiac dysfunction is a common cause of mortality and morbidity associated with CABG Surgery. Adenosine enhances tolerance of the myocardium to ischemic arrest. Therefore, the study on adenosine pre-treatment as an adjunct to cardioplegia in patients undergoing CABG will definitely help to provide better myocardial protection for better postoperative outcome.
Homocysteine is increasingly recognized as an independent risk factor for vascular disease specially peripheral arterial occlusive diseases. In the present study, an attempt was made to find out the association between the raised fasting plasma total homocysteine level and early onset atherosclerotic peripheral arterial occlusive diseases (PAOD).
