The Paragonix SherpaPerfusion Cardiac Transport System combines innovative oxygenated perfusion of organs and safe organ storage with the ultimate goal of extending ischemic time to 12 hours, significantly altering the transportation range of donor hearts.
Even though the recommended door-to-balloon time can be achieved in most of the patients the total ischemic time remained long.
This study highlights the need to reconsider the role of door-to- balloon as a performance metric and examine the utility of a broader metric of systems delay such as first medical contact to balloon time as well as total ischemic time, Mehran added.
4) They demonstrated the feasibility and safety of this novel procedure; however, they also reported a slightly prolonged total ischemic time of 126.
Logistic regression analysis was carried out to assess the impact of ischemic time on ventilation time, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) stay, and hospitalization time after operation.
The parameters analysed were: the clinical features (chest pain, breathlessness) and demographics of the sample population, the onset of ST depression, the magnitude and type of ST segment depression in relation to disease, the time to ST segment recovery in relation to true positive (TP) test versus false positive (FP) test, the total duration of ST segment depression during exercise and recovery (total ischemic time (TIT)) of TP in relation to FP tests, the double product and analysis of time course recovery patterns in TP in relation to FP tests.
Tahir Saghir emphasized that the goal should be to get rid of all the unnecessary steps in the care of STEMI patients and develop the systems of care with the focus of decreasing the total ischemic time to 120 minutes.
Delays of management are significantly longer in women, hence they have a longer ischemic time during which the heart's blood supply is reduced," said Dr Leurent.
For every hour ischemic time was reduced, the recipient has an 11% increase in the chance that they will survive a decade or more.
Although longer aortic clamping time increased the risk of cardiovascular events, the protective effect of MC-1 was independent of ischemic time during CABG.
The perioperative and follow-up analysis showed that patients with long-term survival had shorter ischemic time (141.
