*  Letter from Clarence Dennis to Margaret Blumenfeld (March 5, 1961)
Our work here has been most fascinating. We are trying the use of left heart bypass for acute left heart failure. It is much simpler than trying to use an oxygenator too, and I have learned to put a cannula down the jugular, on man or the dog, with relative ease, through the atrial septum, and into the left atrium for the purpose. Angiocardiograms with dogs have shown that in this fashion we are able to run bypass effectively enough so that no blood at all passes into the left ventricle, and the aorta fills only in retrograde fashion from the cannula in the femoral artery. Of 10 dogs run in this fashion for 24 hours, nine are long-term survivors, and the 3 which died were lost from silly technical errors, such as burning the dog with a hot ...

NEW ORLEANS - Two new studies could change care for hundreds of thousands of heart patients each year. One finds that bypass surgery has been overrated for many people with very weak hearts from clogged arteries and previous heart attacks. The other challenges the way artery-opening procedures have been done for decades.

*  Evaluating the Role of Thrombin in Saphenous Vein Graft Failure After Heart Bypass Surgery - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
The saphenous vein, which runs from the ankle to the groin along the inside of the leg, is commonly used as a graft for people undergoing a CABG surgery. The vein is removed from the leg and reattached to the heart to create a detour around the blocked part of a coronary artery. Following this procedure, many people are prescribed aspirin as a way to increase the chance that the graft procedure will be successful. However, saphenous vein graft failure may still occur in some people, indicating a need to understand why this happens and who might be at risk for graft failure. Thrombin, a protein involved in the blood clotting process, is somehow related to aspirin resistance, abnormalities in blood flow, and cell disruption within the saphenous vein, all factors thought to increase the risk of graft failure. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the likelihood that a burst in thrombin contributes to graft failure in people who have recently undergone a CABG procedure using the saphenous ...

*  Intravenous L-Citrulline to Treat Children Undergoing Heart Bypass Surgery - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Increased pulmonary vascular tone (PVT) can complicate the postoperative course of the following five surgical procedures for congenital heart defects: 1) unrestrictive ventricular septal defect (VSD) repair; 2) atrioventricular septal (AVSD) repair; 3) arterial switch procedure for transposition of the great arteries (TGA); 4) bidirectional Glenn shunt procedure; and 5) Fontan procedure for single ventricle lesions. PVT is partially controlled by NO. Arginine, the precursor to NO, is a product of the urea cycle. Preliminary data have been presented regarding 169 infants and children who have undergone one of six previous surgical procedures. It was found that urea cycle function and plasma arginine levels were significantly decreased in all participants. Furthermore, participants with increased PVT had significantly lower arginine levels compared to participants with normal PVT. Finally, a genetic single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the rate limiting urea cycle enzyme (carbamyl ...

*  Home Health Pilot Reduces Readmissions in Heart Bypass Patients | Home Health Care News
The goal of the Follow Your Heart program is to provide continuity of care for patients that the cardiac surgery nurse practitioners know from the hospital setting and provide robust medication management, coordinate community services, and be a communications hub for hospital and community providers," said Dr. Michael Hall, one of the doctors who implemented the pilot, in a press release. Reductions in both readmissions and costs were reported by the study, which cited "substantial savings." "The nurse practitioners are the key to this program's success because they provide patients they know from the hospital setting with robust continuity of care they need immediately after hospital discharge, while helping community resources better prepare for the patient handoff," said Dr. Hall. "We hope to continue our studies with patients with other medical diagnoses, such as heart failure, and determine the most efficient way for excellent, cost-efficient, and sustainable long-term ...

*  Parenting Tips: Double heart bypass patient in post-operative intensive care is sent Government letter ordering him back to work
The Government ordered fresh assessments on thousands of people claiming incapacity benefits back in 2010. Charities have voiced concern that the the Work Capability Assessment is unfair. Richard Hawkes, chief executive of disability charity Scope said: 'The latest figures released showing the number of people found 'fit for work' need to be taken with a large pinch of salt. There remains an alarming dossier of evidence that the Work Capability Assessment is a deeply flawed test. But DWP statistics show 41% of claimants have appealed against decisions on their benefits after the tests, with 38% having previous decisions overturned. Factoring in these successful appeals would significantly lower the number of people found 'fit for work ...

*  Centrifugal Pump Model 104M
These centrifugal pumps are not self-priming. They must be installed below the liquid level so that the liquid flows to the pump by gravity (flooded suction). However, if a foot valve is used at the beginning of the suction line, and all air is bled from the pump by manual priming, the pump will lift on the suction side up to 15 feet.. Such a system relies entirely on the non-leaking foot valve for starting capability. The flow of a centrifugal pump can be conveniently controlled by a throttling valve in the discharge line without the need for a relief valve. In centrifugal pumps, the horsepower demand will decrease as the pressure increases. Maximum horsepower occurs with a wide open discharge.. ...

*  Brevet US20050240250 - Selective organ hypothermia method and apparatus - Google Brevets
A method and apparatus for performing hypothermia of a selected organ without significant effect on surrounding organs or other tissues. A flexible catheter is inserted through the vascular system of a patient to place the distal tip of the catheter in an artery feeding the selected organ. A compressed refrigerant is pumped through the catheter to an expansion element near the distal tip of the catheter, where the refrigerant vaporizes and expands to cool a flexible heat transfer element in the distal tip of the catheter. The heat transfer element cools the blood flowing through the artery, to cool the selected organ, distal to the tip of the catheter.
