Myocardial protection: a safe cardioplegic catheter.

PMID:  7396584     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The administration of cold cardioplegic solution has contributed to the "safe" time allowable for performance of intricate cardiac procedures under ischemic arrest. A catheter has been designed that delivers a large bolus of solution quickly, ensures rapid arrest of cardiac function, and allows continuous perfusion during the procedure. It permits the safe escape of air on reestablishment of cardiac function. The catheter can be inserted and removed through a small aortotomy, thereby preventing undue trauma to a sclerotic or thickened aorta.
