Prevalence and Clinical Impact of Systemic Inflammatory Reaction After Cardiac Surgery.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Emergency and Organ Transplant, University of Bari Aldo Moro, Italy; Santa Maria Hospital, Department of Cardiac Surgery, GVM Care & Research, Bari, Italy. Electronic address:

Objectives: Cardiac surgery induces a systemic inflammatory reaction that has been associated with postoperative mortality and morbidity. Many studies have characterized this reaction through laboratory biomarkers while clinical studies generally are lacking. This study aimed to assess the incidence of postoperative systemic inflammation after cardiac surgery, and the association of postoperative systemic inflammation with preoperative patients' characteristics and postoperative outcomes.

The Use of Subcostal Echocardiographic Views to Guide the Insertion of a Right Ventricular Temporary Transvenous Pacemaker-Description of the Technique.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Jan 16. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

University of Ottawa Department of Anesthesiology, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada. Electronic address:

The need for temporary cardiac pacing may occur in emergency and elective situations and may require transvenous right ventricular lead placement. The treatment of bradyarrhythmias presents the most common perioperative emergency indication. Intraoperatively, temporary rapid right ventricular pacing is accepted as a safe, titratable, and highly reliable method to achieve deliberate hypotension, and it has become a routine practice in the anesthetic management of cardiovascular interventions.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Jan 12. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

Fiona Stanley Hospital, Perth, WA, Australia; St John of God Hospital, Subiaco, Perth, WA, Australia. Electronic address:

The care of patients undergoing cardiac surgery is becoming more complex, in part owing to the increasing burden of comorbid disease, frailty, and psychosocial issues. Many risk factors for postoperative morbidity and mortality are potentially modifiable if identified and treated in a timely fashion before surgery. Cardiac prehabilitation, draws from strategies currently undertaken in cardiac rehabilitation but implements them proactively rather than reactively. Read More

Diastolic Function and Peripheral Venous Pressure as Indices for Fluid Responsiveness in Cardiac Surgical Patients.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Baylor Scott & White Healthcare, Temple, TX.

Objective: Identifying fluid responsiveness is critical to optimizing perfusion while preventing fluid overload. An experimental study of hypovolemic shock resuscitation showed the importance of ventricular compliance and peripheral venous pressure (PVP) on fluid responsiveness. The authors tested the hypothesis that reduced ventricular compliance measured using transesophageal echocardiography results in decreased fluid responsiveness after a fluid bolus. Read More

Trends and Updates on Cardiopulmonary Bypass Setup in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD. Electronic address:

Perfusion strategies for cardiopulmonary bypass have direct consequences on pediatric cardiac surgery outcomes. However, inconsistent study results and a lack of uniform evidence-based guidelines for pediatric cardiopulmonary bypass management have led to considerable variability in perfusion practices among, and even within, institutions. Important aspects of cardiopulmonary bypass that can be optimized to improve clinical outcomes of pediatric patients undergoing cardiac surgery include extracorporeal circuit components, priming solutions, and additives.

A Comparative Study of SEER Sonorheometry Versus Standard Coagulation Tests, Rotational Thromboelastometry, and Multiple Electrode Aggregometry in Cardiac Surgery.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Cardiovascular Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Unit, IRCCS Policlinico San Donato, San Donato Milanese (Milan), Milan, Italy. Electronic address:

Objectives: Coagulation point-of-care tests for the diagnosis and management of bleeding commonly are used in cardiac surgery. Recently, a new viscoelastic point-of-care device, Quantra (HemoSonics, Charlottesville, VA), which is based on sonic estimation of elasticity via resonance sonorheometry, entered the market. Prior studies have compared the Quantra parameters with conventional coagulation tests and thromboelastography or rotational thromboelastography, but no study has assessed the correlation of the platelet-derived Quantra parameter platelet contribution to stiffness (PCS) with platelet function assays.

Transesophageal Echocardiography in Heart and Lung Transplantation.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Jan 7. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

Department of Anaesthetics and Intensive Care, Royal Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, UK.

The number of heart and lung transplantations has risen over the years, and they remain the mainstay of treatment for end-stage heart failure and end-stage lung diseases. From the assessment of the donor's heart to intraoperative management during separation from cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) to the postoperative follow-up of heart transplant patients, echocardiography plays a vital role throughout this process. Patients with chronic lung diseases also may have cardiovascular compromise secondary to pulmonary hypertension, pre-existing coronary artery disease, or valvular heart disease. Read More

Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC.

Pediatric cardiac surgical patients are at particular risk for post-cardiopulmonary bypass hemorrhage. Moreover, both the incidence and volume of blood transfusions have been associated with increased morbidity in pediatric cardiac patients. Transfusion of red blood cells, platelets, and coagulation factors is necessary to combat the hemodilution associated with cardiopulmonary bypass and to treat postoperative bleeding. Read More

Ultrasound Imaging for Diaphragm Dysfunction: A Narrative Literature Review.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Clinic, Department of Medicine, University of Udine, Udine, Italy.

Of the various muscles that make up the respiratory system, the diaphragm is the prima donna. In the past, only specialist research centers were able to estimate and challenge the effort of this muscle; this was achieved by measuring transdiaphragmatic pressure-an invasive technique involving a double-balloon probe inserted through the esophagus-or by measuring twitch pressure (ie, the pressure generated at the outside tip of the endotracheal tube). However, the prevalence of diaphragm dysfunction in critically ill patients requiring intubation can exceed 60% (at the time of hospital admission) and may rise to as high as 80% in patients requiring prolonged mechanical ventilation and experiencing difficult weaning.

Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR.

This is a review of the 2017 AHA/ACC/HRS Guidelines with guidance for intraoperative physicians. Ventricular arrhythmias occurring during the perioperative period have the potential for significant morbidity and mortality. Hence, an in-depth knowledge of VA mechanisms, prevention, and management is crucial for all clinicians caring for these at-risk patients in the perioperative period. Read More
