J. Navratil The functionality of operations at the center and its alternative via a trans­ planted or synthetic center has been an age previous dream of guy. Rehn for instance in an early try, in 1868 played a closure of a middle wound after a thoracic puncture. at the moment noone idea that this test was once the start of cardiac surgical procedure. The dream used to be partly discovered while the substitute of the guts functionality by means of the heart-lungmachine grew to become attainable. instantly following the 1st operations, cardiac surgeons and cardiologists observed with nice enthusiasm that this desktop will be an incredible instrument for correcting congenital and non­ congenital middle ailments. despite the fact that, the heart-lungmachine used to be quickly noticeable not to be an optimum device for controlling cardiac failure after cardiopulmonary skip or myocardial infarction. then arose for the improvement of mechanical information to the guts. recommendations The rollerpump was once first designed for assisted movement and will be utilized clinically in 1962. a brand new suggestion of mechanical suggestions to the guts used to be seasoned­ vided via the intra aortic balloon pump and later via the skip ventricles. Use of the intra aortic balloon pump can lessen cardiac paintings through counterpulsation in accord with the typical ECG. The skip ventricle can functionally change the center in sequence or parallel to the ordinary middle. The intra aortic balloon pump, now a longtime technique, has decreased the variety of sufferers who used to die from cardiac failure.

The external ventricle for counterpulsation (Fig. 7) receives the blood volume via the femoral arteries in systole and returns it in diastole. The principle is similar to the 18 Introduction Fig. 7. External ventricle (EV) principle of the Windkessel of the aorta. The main limiting factor is the high hemolysis. Due to the implantation site the augmenting diastole is quite diminished in the aortic arch. 19 1. Counterpulsation: Foundation and Future, with a Tribute to William Oifford Birtwell (1916-1978) D.

The balloon and catheter are then snared to pennit perfusion of the distal extremity during the period of cardiac assistance (CA). Preoperative patients are heparinized, but postoperative patients are usually treated solely with rectal aspirin. Additional details of patient management have been previously described [6, 8]. When practical, a Swan-Ganz thermodilution catheter2 is inserted in these patients for hemodynamic monitoring. In addition, an EVR3 (endocardial viability ratio) computer, which enables the early detection of subendocardial ischemia and its continuous monitoring during support with counterpulsation, has been routinely employed.
