Anesthetic Experience of Dynamic Cardiomyoplasty: A case report.
Jin Hyung Kwon, Do Hyun Kwon, Young Rae Cho
Dynamic cardiomyoplasty is a recently introduced surgical method to improve myocardial performance. It consists of a placement of a skeletal muscle flap around the heart and stimulation of the flap in synchrony with ventricular contraction. We experienced a case of cardiomyoplasty in a 25 year old male patient with congestive heart failure. Anesthesia was induced and maintained with fentanyl, midazolam and isoflurane. The operation was performed for 8hrs without cardiopulmonary bypass and the patient was transferred to the intensive care unit. He was mechanically ventilated electively overnight and extubation was done 18hrs postoperatively. The patient was discharged home on the 40days after operation and improved in exercise tolerance. We report the anesthetic management and hemodynamic changes in a patient who underwent dynamic cardiomyoplasty.
Key Words: Heart, congestive heart failure; Surgery, cardiomyoplasty
