The Effect Of Ticagrelor On Saphenous Vein Graft Patency In Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgery

Rationale: Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) is used to prevent the occlusion of grafts placed during coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG) and to reduce the incidence of atherothrombotic events during follow-up. Graft occlusion occurs predominantly in saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) and can result in symptoms of chest pain, myocardial infarction (MI) ...

Preventing Acute Renal Failure After Cardiac Surgery in High Risk Patients Using Sodium Bicarbonate Therapy

Acute renal failure (ARF) is an important complication after cardiac surgery that has a prevalence ranging between 5 and 30%. In addition, the impact of chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been well correlated with poorer outcomes after cardiac surgery. These factors have been demonstrated to be associated with increased morbidity, ...

Effect of Low Dose ColchiciNe on the InciDence of POAF

AF after cardiac surgery leads to excess mortality and morbidity. Colchicine was used in several studies to lower the incidence AF but the results were generally disappointing. There was no benefit in reducing AF and there was a high incidence of GI side effects especially diarrhea, often leading to stopping ...

Comparison of Post-operative Pain and Quality of Life Between Subxiphoid and Intercostal VATS for Lung Cancer

Is subxiphoid route VATS surgery better than Intercostal VATS surgery for lung cancer? Video assisted thoracoscopic surgery for lung cancer (VATS) is less traumatic than traditional open surgery for lung cancer. A novel uniportal VATS technique involving a subxiphoid route for thoracic surgery has been occured. It is reported that ...
