Especially cardioplegic arrest of the heart in high-risk situations as elderly patients, compromised ventricle, re-operations and high PAP may make weaning from the CPB problematic.
CABG and valve replacement) with cross-clamp times shorter and longer than 1 h suggest that myocardial damage after cross-clamp times >1 h is not related just to cross-clamping: other factors, such as insufficient cardioplegic protection and severity of left ventricle hypertrophy, may also be involved.
The integrated MPS system features an electronic console and related disposables designed to manage key functions relating to the delivery of cardioplegic solutions to the heart during open heart surgery.
The patient was cooled 26[degrees]C and following cardioplegic diastolic arrest the pulmonary autograft in the aortic position was incised.
In open heart surgery the aortic cross-clamping with cardioplegic cardiac arrest induces a global myocardial ischemia, and hypothermia is induced to protect the myocardium.

These changes in RV performance also occur in patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass grafts, suggesting that they are not necessarily due to the effects of CPB or cardioplegic arrest (12).
Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of two different cardioplegic solutions on nitric oxide (NO) release from coronary vasculature in patients with type II diabetes mellitus undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery.
Despite cardioplegic protection during cardio-pulmonary bypass (CPB), a variable degree of ischaemia and myocardial stunning usually follows cardiac surgery (149).
Effects of different cardioplegic solutions on no release from coronary vasculature in diabetic patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery.
Our institutional routine is to use cold cardioplegic arrest, but in this child, the VSD was closed using normothermic CPB under fibrillatory arrest, in order to avoid hypothermia during the brief cross-clamp time that was expected for the procedure.
