Evaluation of graft anastomosis using time–intensity curves and quantitative near-infrared fluorescence angiography during peripheral arterial bypass grafting

Near-infrared fluorescence angiography (NIR) visualizes blood perfusion using the fluorescence property of indocyanine green (ICG). This study aimed to retrospectively determine the usefulness of a quantitative analysis using NIR to predict the …

Glucose control using a closed-loop device decreases inflammation after cardiovascular surgery without increasing hypoglycemia risk

Although tight glucose control might reduce inflammation after cardiac surgery, it remains unclear whether inflammation can be controlled by maintaining glucose levels within 110–180 mg/dL. We hypothesized that a glucose target range of 110–180 …

Mechanical properties of a new thermally deformable mitral valve annuloplasty ring and its effects on the mitral valve

Ideally, an annuloplasty ring’s shape should be changed intraoperatively if mitral valve repair is unsuccessful because of a short coaptation length or systolic anterior motion. Several post-implantation adjustable rings have been developed, but …

Long-term maintenance of hemoglobin levels in hemodialysis patients treated with bi-weekly epoetin beta pegol switched from darbepoetin alfa: a single-center, 12-month observational study in Japan

Recent evidence on maintenance administration of epoetin beta pegol, a continuous erythropoiesis receptor activator (CERA), in dialysis patients shows the clinical benefit of bi-weekly administration (Q2W) in improving hematopoiesis and iron use …

Maintaining lower limb access with the HeRO device

Central venous catheters (CVC) remain a mainstay of vascular access particularly for incident patients,
but lead to central vein stenosis (CVS) in up to 1 in 6 patents. This often leads to establishing dialysis access in the groin which in turn …
