Abstract: introduction: cardiopulmonary bypass (cpb) and ascending aorta manipulation (aam) are associated with a high incidence of stroke in coronary surgery in patients older than 75 years. this complication is due, mostly, to the handling of the aorta by the time of the cross-clamping, either for heart isolation from cpb, or to perform saphenous vein graft anastomosis to the ascending aorta. objectives: to observe immediate and mid-term mortalities and occurrence of stroke in the immediate post-operative period in patients older than 75 years who underwent surgical revascularization of the left coronary artery system (lcas) without cpb and without aam. method: between january 2000 and april 2002, 40 patients, with ages ranging from 75 to 89 years (average 79.1), underwent surgical revascularization of the lcas, with left internal mammary artery (lima) graft to the left anterior descending artery (lad), and with saphenous vein graft (svg) originated from lima to one or more left coronary artery branches (composite graft), without cpb and without aam. male gender was predominant (67.5%). eighty-nine arterial grafts were performed, with average of 2.22 per patient, of which 40 (44.94%) of lima and 49 (55.06%) of saphenous vein. the occurrence of stroke was evaluated by neurological and clinical exams. result: it was not observed stroke or deaths in the immediate post-operative period. conclusion: surgical revascularization of the lcas in patients older than 75 years without cpb and without aam can be performed systematically in order to avoid occurrence of stroke, and so, reducing the mortality of the procedure.

Carvalho Angela Maria Férrer,Diógenes Tereza Cristina Pinheiro,Jucá Eduardo Régis Monte,Carvalho André Férrer
Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia , 2003,
Abstract: Tetralogy of Fallot is known as the most common cyanotic congenital heart disease and has a prevalence of 10% of all congenital heart diseases. Although many other heart anomalies may coexist, the association of tetralogy of Fallot and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is extremely rare. We report this association in a 15-month-old female, cyanotic since birth, in her first hospital admission for diagnosis and treatment of recurring cyanotic crises. In addition, a review of the literature and of the problems related to the treatment is provided.

Abstract: objective: to assess the feasibility and safety of dobutamine-atropine stress echocardiography (dase) in octogenarians. methods: we evaluated 5,467 dase which were distributed in two groups: group i (gi) with 203 dase performed in octogenarians, and group ii (gii), the control group, with 5,264 dase. the mean age of gi and gii was 83±3 (80-95) and 59±11 (17-79) years, respectively. dase parameters that were prospectively collected, were compared and analyzed. results: the percentage of patients that achieved maximum heart rate was 63.5% in gi and 41% in gii (p<0.001), and gi patients required less atropine compared to gii (gi=47%, gii=78%, p<0.001).the presence of chest pain (gi=13%, gii=15.6%, p=0.429) and dase positive for myocardial ischemia (gi=20.7%, gii=16.9%, p=0.296) were not statistically different between the two groups. however, concomitant positive dase and absence of chest pain (gi=17%, gii=11%, p=0.029) was higher in gi. the incidence of premature beats in gi was higher than in gii (gi=47.8%, gii=27.6%, p<0.001), and there were more supraventricular tachyarrhythmias (st) in gi than in gii (gi=5.9%, gii=1.9%, p=0.001). out of 11 st that happened in gi, 9 reverted spontaneously. there weren't either deaths or acute myocardial infarction. ventricular fibrillation only happened in gii (2 cases, 0.03%). conclusion: in the present study, octogenarians achieved maximum heart rate more frequently despite the lesser amount of atropine that they required for dase completion. moreover, in this elderly population, there was a higher correlation between positive dase and absence of chest pain. although octogenarians did present more heart rhythm disturbs, they usually resolved spontaneously. in our study, dase proved to be feasible and safe in octogenarians.
