hypothermic circulatory arrest

hypothermic circulatory arrest

Suspended animation Cardiovascular surgery A surgical procedure in which a heart-lung machine is used to cool the body during surgery, which ↓ BP and slows circulation to near standstill; HCA is critical in some neurosurgeries–eg, excision of aneurysms of the vertebrobasilar circulation. See Berry aneurysm.

Conventional surgical repair with cardiopulmonary bypass and deep hypothermic circulatory arrest is associated with high risk of mortality.[sup][1] Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) with associated techniques to reconstruct all supra-aortic branches is still controversial.[sup][2],[3] Herein, we reported a new endovascular method.

ICU stay time was significantly influenced by the following factors; age (P=0.013), EuroSCORE (P=0.017), preoperative D- dimer (P=0.006], Deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (P=0.026), postoperative stroke (P=0.016), CPB time (P=0.002), postoperative stroke (P=0.009), postoperative acute respiratory failure (P=0.041) and postoperative acute renal failure (P=0.002).

The cerebral protection strategy has changed over time mainly to reduce the burden of hypothermic circulatory arrest and currently consists of short periods (7-10 minutes) of moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest followed by short periods ([greater than or equal to] 5 minutes) of reperfusion, with monitoring using cerebral near-infrared spectroscopy to determine the length of each reperfusion period.
