Surgical Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation: Cutting Through the Edges.

Braz J Cardiovasc Surg 2020 Jun 1;35(3):375-386. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery Liverpool UK Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, Liverpool, UK.

Medical management of atrial fibrillation can be complex, challenging and requiring time to prove its effectiveness; furthermore, the response can be refractory and inconsistent if the underlying pathology is not permanently addressed. Surgical ablation has become a key intervention, and since its first intervention in 1987 (the Cox-maze procedure), the technique has evolved from a conventional open method to a minimally invasive technique whilst retaining excellent outcomes. Furthermore, recent advances in the use of a hybrid approach have been established as satisfactory approach in managing atrial fibrillation with satisfactory outcomes. Read More

Objective: To avoid incorrect left ventricular incision and obtain good surgical results in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy suitable for partial left ventriculectomy, we employed intraoperative direct echocardiography to determine the exact extent and position of the myocardial incision, even for surgeons who are not very experienced with the Batista procedure.

Methods: A 72-year-old man with dilated cardiomyopathy underwent the Batista procedure with the aid of epicardial echocardiography to confirm the location of both the papillary muscles and the diseased myocardium. Read More

Faculdade de Medicina de Barbacena Barbacena MG Brazil Faculdade de Medicina de Barbacena, Barbacena, MG, Brazil.

Congenital mitral valve stenosis is a rare and severe disease, usually associated with other heart defects. The appropriate intervention depends on the site and mechanism of valvular obstruction and the aim is to avoid or delay valve replacement since it is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Early single-stage complete repair is associated with better prognosis. Read More
