Percutaneous initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass

The Annals of Thoracic Surgery
S J PhillipsD Gray


Improved technology has allowed us to develop support pumps that can be applied rapidly and safely. A system utilizing thin-walled (4 mm inner diameter) percutaneously inserted sheaths has been designed for rapid bedside arterial and central venous cannulation to establish femoral arterial and venous cardiopulmonary bypass. The system utilizes two 30-cm-long large-bore, thin-walled (end and side holes) venous cannulas and a single 15-cm-long (end hole) arterial reperfusion cannula, which is connected to a pediatric oxygenator and a vortex pump head. Five patients with refractory cardiac arrest who could not be resuscitated by conventional means were revived with this system. Application time was approximately five minutes. This system appears to be an easily applied and reliable short-term mechanical support device.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
