Nitroglycerin to control blood pressure during endovascular stent-grafting of descending thoracic aortic aneurysms

Journal of Vascular Surgery
E O BernardR C Germann

Abstract

Temporary asystole induced with adenosine or electrically induced ventricular fibrillation has previously been proposed to prevent hypertension during transluminal placement of thoracic endovascular stent-grafts. Nitroglycerin is a safe and less invasive alternative to control blood pressure and, in contrast to the methods mentioned, can also be used during stent-grafting performed under local anesthesia.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
