"What's best for a patient? Normal physiology. Hypothermia is cooling of the patient, it is an extreme situation.
We came to the conclusion that 34-36 degrees is the best option of artificial circulation.
To stop the heart, it does not need to be cooled. In our country, it is difficult to implement what has been invented in our country.
But I think that Normacor® will take its place, the due first place. You enter the market with a new drug
that shows its absolute safety for the patient.
And patients with disabled myocardium undergo the operative and postoperative periods without complications.
I think I'll live to see the happy day when I can congratulate you on the successful implementation of Normacor® in all surgical clinics of our country."

"We are not completely satisfied with the effect of the solutions we are using, because there is a
risk of postoperative heart failure in the patients in grave condition, and at the moment,
the surgeons would ask themselves: "Was the protection of the heart during the period of
aorta cross-clamping sufficient?" To solve this problem, we were pleased to use a new cardioplegic drug - Normacor®,
it was attractive due to its characteristics. Using Normacor®, a surgeon does not have to stop during the surgery;
the surgical field does not require additional methods to improve visualization because the coronary arteries are clearly visible;
the myocardium restores quickly; thus the time is saved and the surgery rate is maintained.
Using Custodiol, it takes you 20 minutes to perform cardioplegia, Normacor® has no such disadvantage.
In our group, we have not encountered any symptoms of heart failure during the postoperative period,
and we think that it is the benefit of Normacor®. I am sure that a large number of surgeons will like
to work with it, and Normacor® will take its rightful
, and perhaps even a leading position among cardioplegic solutions used during open heart surgeries."

"The key surgical stage (Bentall procedure) lasted for 1 hour 30
minutes on single infusion of Normacor®. After that heart rhythm
recovered unaided, with no tonic support, with normal ECG and with
normal blood pressure indicators. … I consider it possible to
perform serious heart surgery on the preparation safely. … We have
experience of more than 70 surgeries performed with Normacor®. All
positive, there are no remarks. … Great advantage is that this
solution is officially registered."
