Myocardial preservation: controlled reperfusion.

PMID:  22443652     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Reperfusion injury after reestablishing coronary flow by releasing the aortic cross clamp after cardiac surgery with cardioplegic arrest causes myocardial damage and even death. Attenuation of this reperfusion response by controlling the biochemical and physical environment can avoid morbidity and mortality. Use of a warm reperfusate with addition of drugs that are known to decrease reperfusion injury with manipulation of coronary vascular resistance and the physical parameters of the reperfusion environment helps the heart to reestablish coronary perfusion while decreasing the harm produced by the period of ischemia that occurs during cardiac surgery with intermittent cardioplegic arrest.
