Surgical treatment of postinfarction heart aneurysms and akinesias

Surgical treatment of postinfarction heart aneurysms and akinesias

Rozhledy V Chirurgii 68(2): 72-77

The paper deals with the problem of surgical treatment of cardiac aneurysms and akinesias from the aspect of indication of surgical tactics and technique, risk factors and achieved results. The group of 117 patients is divided into 74 patients operated in 1970-1982 and 43 patients operated in 1983-1987 when already medium hyperthermia was used permanently, similarly as cold cardioplegia, complete haemodilution, pulsed extracorporeal circulation and relieving drainage of the left ventricle via the pulmonary artery. The reduction of early mortality from 24.3% to 4.7% provides clear evidence of the advantages of this procedure. The authors draw attention to differences in indications of surgical treatment between classical aneurysms and akinesians and to the importance of revascularization operations performed nowadays, using aortocoronary bypasses.
