Autologous tissue reconstruction of Interrupted aortic arch using aberrant subclavian artery.

Ann Thorac Surg 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Pediatric Cardiac Sciences, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, India.

Reconstruction of the aortic arch in type B interruption requires extensive mobilisation of the descending aorta and the proximal branches of the arch to perform a tension free anastomosis. Association of coexistent type II aortopulmonary window and aberrant subclavian artery reduces the degree of mobility that can be achieved by dissection alone and usually entails sacrifice of the aberrant artery to achieve satisfactory mobilisation. We report a novel technique to use the aberrant subclavian artery as autologous tissue in the reconstruction of the aortic arch for repair of type B interruption associated with type II aortopulmonary window.

Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair for Acute Aortic Dissection.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Dec;11(4):464-472

Second Department of Surgery, Yamagata University Faculty of Medicine, Yamagata, Yamagata, Japan.

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for thoracic aortic disease constitutes a paradigm shift in the treatment strategy of aortic dissection, as well as thoracic aortic aneurysms. Conventionally, most patients with Stanford type B acute aortic dissection are treated using conservative medical treatment during the acute phase. However, in patients with complicated type B aortic dissection who present with life-threatening complications, TEVAR has been introduced as a novel and less-invasive alternative and has shown better early results than those observed with conventional therapy.

Miyuki Hospital LTAC Heart Failure Center, Kumamoto, Japan.

The majority of aortic aneurysms comorbid with atherosclerosis can be asymptomatic and are discovered incidentally on routine physical examination or on imaging studies for other indications. Transthoracic echocardiography is a basic modality to assess patients with coronary artery disease and can be used for the screening of aortic aneurysm. Acute aortic dissection is a highly lethal cardiovascular emergency and requires prompt recognition. Read More

Service des urgences, Département des centres interdisciplinaires et logistique médicale, CHUV, 1011 Lausanne.

Professionalisation of emergency medicine is currently booming. In order to offer the best care, emergency physician can refer to several new studies : 1) in a cerebral stroke, the 0° head position doesn't offer any benefit ; 2) hyperoxygenation in acute patients could raise mortality ; 3) epinephrine in prehospital cardiac arrest favors return of spontaneous circulation but worsens the neurological prognosis ; 4) systematic cross-checking reduces the risk of adverse events in the emergency department ; 5) ultrasensitive troponins better detect myocardic events, but raises the number of unusefull invasive procedures and 6) combined pre-test probability score and D-dimers potentially allows to rule out aortic dissection.

Defective NOTCH signaling drives increased vascular smooth muscle cell apoptosis and contractile differentiation in bicuspid aortic valve aortopathy: A review of the evidence and future directions.

Trends Cardiovasc Med 2019 Feb 21;29(2):61-68. Epub 2018 Jun 21.

Institute of Developmental Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of Southampton, Southampton, SO16 6YD United Kingdom.

Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) disease remains the most common congenital cardiac disease and is associated with an increased risk of potentially fatal aortopathy including aortic aneurysm and dissection. Mutations in the NOTCH1 gene are one of only a few genetic anomalies identified in BAV disease; however evidence for defective NOTCH signaling, and its involvement in the characteristic histological changes of VSMC apoptosis and differentiation in ascending aortae of BAV patients is lacking. This review scrutinizes the evidence for the interactions of NOTCH signaling, cellular differentiation and apoptosis in the context of aortic VSMCs and provides focus for future research efforts in the diagnosis of BAV aortopathy and prevention of catastrophic complications through NOTCH signaling manipulation.

Clampless aortic punch system for making a large-diameter access route without side-biting clamp: a preliminary study.

J Artif Organs 2019 Jan 5. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Hirosaki University School of Medicine, 5 Zaifu-cho, Hirosaki, Aomori, 036-8562, Japan.

Although thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair (TEVAR) has been getting popularity as a less-invasive procedure, the treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysm with atherosclerotic aortic disease is still challenging. In hybrid TEVAR through the median sternotomy approach, side-biting clamp of the ascending aorta is often necessary for making an access route; however, it could cause embolic complication and aortic dissection. This study aimed to present the results of our preliminary study on the clampless aortic punch system (APS). Read More

Exploration of robotic-assisted surgical techniques in vascular surgery.

J Robot Surg 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, 48109, USA.

Robotic-assisted surgical approaches for vascular surgery are feasible regarding minimally invasive exposure, dissection, ligation and skeletonization for varicose vein ligation, anterior spine exposure, femoral-popliteal bypass, femoral vein harvest and aortic aneurysm repair. The authors performed a cadaveric exploration to demonstrate proof of concept and feasibility for a robotic-assisted approached. Surgeon autonomy over endoscopic vision, robotic instrumentation and retraction were noted as key benefits over existing open vascular approaches. Read More

Reinforcement and reapproximation of the aortic stump during surgery for acute aortic dissection.

Surg Today 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan.

Anastomosis of the fragile aortic wall in patients with acute aortic dissection presents a challenge to cardiovascular surgeons. Reinforcement of the stump is a key to accomplishing successful anastomosis. Surgical glues such as gelatin-resorcin-formalin (GRF) glue and Bioglue are easy to use and have radically changed the process of the reinforcement and reapproximation. Read More

Relationship between the extent of aortic replacement and stent graft for acute DeBakey type I aortic dissection and outcomes: Results from a medical center in Taiwan.

PLoS One 2019 4;14(1):e0210022. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Background: Total arch replacement (TAR) and/or stent graft implantation has been proposed as the primary surgical treatment for acute DeBakey type I aortic dissection. However, the suggestion was based on excellent outcomes of high-volume or aortic centers. How about the real results in most places around the world? The purpose of this study was intended to compared in-hospital mortality, major complications, and aortic remodeling between TAR and/or stent graft implantation in a medical center of northern Taiwan.
