However, the majority of cardiac patients do not engage in enough physical activity to obtain benefits or in the ...


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.

Comparing of Microcoil Localization and Hook Wire Localization for Resectable Pulmonary Small Nodules

Both of microcoil localization and hookwire localization have been proved as good preoperative CT-guided techniques to guide VATS resection for the diagnosis of small peripheral pulmonary nodules technique to guide VATS(video assisted thoracoscopic surgery) resection for the diagnosis of small peripheral pulmonary nodules. Compared with the commonly used hook wire, ...


Myocardial Protection With Phosphocreatine in High-RIsk Cardiac SurgEry Patients

There is evidence on the role of the phosphotransfer system in the energy metabolism of the heart, with altered energetics playing an important role in the mechanisms of heart failure. Phosphocreatine plays an important part in the energy heart system. The investigators have just performed a systematic review and meta-analysis ...
