- Rapid atrial pacing for detecting provokable demand ischemia in anesthetized patientsM D Seeberger
Department of Anesthesia, University of California, San Francisco, USA
Anesth Analg 84:1180-5. 1997..In addition, the immediate normalization of new SWMA after abrupt cessation of pacing in some patients calls into question the validity of new SWMA as evidence of myocardial ischemia when left ventricular preload is severely decreased...
- Acute hypovolemia may cause segmental wall motion abnormalities in the absence of myocardial ischemiaM D Seeberger
Department of Anesthesia, University of California San Francisco, USA
Anesth Analg 85:1252-7. 1997..These findings indicate that segmental wall motion may not be a valid marker for ischemia in the setting of acute hypovolemia...
- Dobutamine stress echocardiography to detect inducible demand ischemia in anesthetized patients with coronary artery diseaseM D Seeberger
Department of Anesthesia, University of Basel, Switzerland
Anesthesiology 88:1233-9. 1998..This study was designed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of a dobutamine-atropine stress protocol to detect inducible demand ischemia in anesthetized patients...
- Efficacy of specific aseptic precautions for preventing propofol-related infections: analysis by a quality-assurance programme using the explicit outcome methodM D Seeberger
Department of Anaesthesia, University of Basel, Kantonsspital, Switzerland
J Hosp Infect 39:67-70. 1998..Surgical patients who had received propofol for anaesthesia did not have a higher incidence of postoperative infection, thus demonstrating the efficacy of our aseptic precautions...
- The diagnostic value of Doppler echocardiographic indexes of diastolic filling for detecting demand ischemia in anesthetized patientsM D Seeberger
Department of Anesthesia, University of Basel, Kantonsspital, Switzerland
Int J Card Imaging 16:437-46. 2000..It might differ from that in awake patients because anesthetics and sympathomimetic drugs, which are commonly used in surgical patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), independently affect transmitral flow velocities...
- Intra-operative myocardial ischaemia cannot be detected by analysis of transmitral inflow patterns in patients undergoing off-pump coronary surgeryJ Wang
University Hospital Basel, Department of Anaesthesia, Basel, Switzerland
Eur J Anaesthesiol 25:1-7. 2008..Transmitral inflow patterns have been used for detection of myocardial ischaemia. However, its diagnostic value has not been tested in anaesthetized and mechanically ventilated patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery...
- Doppler indices of diastolic transmitral flow velocity are invalid indicators of myocardial ischaemia during high-dose dobutamine infusion in anaesthetized patientsM Filipovic
University of Basel, Department of Anaesthesia, Switzerland
Eur J Anaesthesiol 19:789-95. 2002..However, its diagnostic value in anaesthetized patients is unknown...
- Predictors of long-term mortality and cardiac events in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease who survive major non-cardiac surgeryM Filipovic
Department of Anaesthesia, University Hospital Basel, CH 4031 Basel, Switzerland
Anaesthesia 60:5-11. 2005..9-21]), and age > 70 years (odds ratio 4.5 [95%, confidence interval 1.2-16]). In contrast, postoperative elevation of cardiac troponin I did not independently predict all-cause mortality or major cardiac events...
- Randomized clinical trial of moxonidine in patients undergoing major vascular surgeryD Bolliger
Department of Anaesthesia, University Hospital Basel, Basel, Switzerland
Br J Surg 94:1477-84. 2007..The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of moxonidine, a centrally acting sympatholytic agent, on perioperative myocardial ischaemia and 1-year mortality in patients undergoing major vascular surgery...
- The influence of pre-admission hypoglycaemic therapy on cardiac morbidity and mortality in type 2 diabetic patients undergoing major non-cardiac surgery: a prospective observational studyD Bolliger
Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine, University Hospital Basel, Basel, Switzerland
Anaesthesia 67:149-57. 2012..The increased mortality in insulin-treated diabetic patients may be due to a more progressive disease state in these patients rather than the treatment modality itself...
