Medical - Medical: Cardiology / Thrombocytop(a)enia in heart surgery
Portuguese term or phrase: Tempo de CEC
In the first occurrence of CEC, I understood it to refer to the heart-lung machine (HLM):

1. Foram incluídos no estudo todos os pacientes consecutivamente admitidos na UTI, para pós-operatório (PO) de cirurgia cardíaca **com circulação extracorpórea (CEC)** e com valor de plaquetas < 150.000 cel/mm3 durante o pós-operatório imediato

However, when I encountered it as table stub (see below), I found only a few references to 'time on heart-lung machine' and none to 'time on HLM'. I'm thinking there must be a more accurate way to express this.


Plaquetas (cel/mm")
Pacientes com heparina não fracionada (%)
Pacientes com heparina de baixo peso molecular (%)
Tempo de cirurgia (horas)
**Tempo de CEC (horas) **
Tempo de internação no hospital antes da cirurgia (dias)
Tempo de permanência na UTI (dias)

(the length of) time of extracorporeal circulation (ECC)
Explanation:
Diria assim...

The parameters collected were age, sex, NYHA classification, left ventricular telediastolic pressure at baseline and after contrast, ejection fraction, collateral circulation, number of distal anastomoses, time of clamping, time of extracorporeal circulation, need for inotropic support to end extracorporeal circulation and during the first 6 hours after surgery.

Such a system is very simple and safe. A disadvantage is that its use is restricted to a maximum of 7 to 8 days. As a rule, however, the patient’s heart recovers during this period since it does not need to work and is not under stress during the time of extracorporeal circulation.

The variables that contributed to hospital mortality were preoperative endocarditis, preoperative cardiogenic shock, the use of extracorporeal circulation, the length of time of extracorporeal circulation, postoperative creatinine level, and postoperative need for prolonged respiratory support.

It's that simple, huh? I thought there had to be mention of the machine. Thanks.
