Hypertonic Saline for Fluid Resuscitation After Cardiac Surgery

Background: Volume replacement strategies and type of fluid used in patients undergoing cardiac surgery have changed during the last years. Currently used crystalloid solutes have a variable composition and a major impact on organ function and outcome. Additionally critically ill patients are prone to fluid overload, which is despite common ...

Antiplatelet Therapy for Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation

The trial consists of two cohorts: Cohort A, patients without an indication for OAC prior to TAVI. Cohort B, patients with an indication for OAC prior to TAVI (eg. atrial fibrillation, mechanic mitral valve prosthesis).

Antiarrhythmic and Cardioprotective Effects of Atorvastatin Versus Magnesium Sulfate in Cardiac Valve Replacement Surgery

Arrhythmia is a common complication after cardiac valve surgery. Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is the most common type of arrhythmia after cardiac surgery. It has different leading causes, including myocardial injury, inadequate myocardial protection, the effect of cardiopulmonary bypass, and electrolyte imbalance. Beta blockers, amiodarone, and magnesium sulfate are used ...

An Oral Amoxicillin-Clavulanate Regimen to Prevent Bacteremia Following Dental Procedures

PURPOSE: Despite the controversy about the risk of developing bacterial endocarditis of oral origin, numerous Expert Committees in different countries continue to publish prophylactic regimens. To date, the literature is unclear about the role of antimicrobial prophylaxis in the prevention of bacteremia following dental procedures. The aim of this study ...

Dabigatran Versus Conventional Treatment for Prevention of Silent Cerebral Infarct in Atrial Fibrillation Associated With Valvular Disease

Amongst different types of cardiac arrhythmia, tachyarrhythmia shows the highest prevalence. The prevalence of AF, which is tachyarrhythmia, is approximately 2% of the entire population and 5% of the population at the age of 60 or older. AF is the cause of approximately 20% of all events of ischemic stroke, ...

The Value of 99mTc-Leukoscan Scintigraphy in the Diagnosis of Infectious Endocarditis on Surgical Materials

Infectious endocarditis is a serious pathology with difficult diagnosis especially on prosthetic valves or cardiac device because of the plurality of clinical presentations and the low sensitivity value of echocardiography in these patients. Despite a well validated indication for the detection of septic emboli, the value of FDG-PET for the ...

Frailty and Cognitive Function Assessment of TAVI Patients

Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common valve disease among the adult population, in the majority of the cases it only requires treatment in advanced age. Surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) is very often refused because of advanced age and poor general condition. These patients used to receive only medical ...

Rationale Design and Methods for the Early Surgery in Infective Endocarditis Study (ENDOVAL)

BACKGROUND Whereas mortality has been dramatically reduced in some areas of cardiac diseases thanks to continuous progress in treatment, endocarditis remains a high-mortality disease with steady percentages of mortality in the last 30 years. Several reasons may help to account for this frustrating comparison. The changing pattern of the epidemiology ...
