Cannulation of the carotid artery for minimally invasive mitral or tricuspid valve surgery.

Ann Thorac Surg 2020 May 19. Epub 2020 May 19.

From the Department of Cardiac Surgery, Medical University of Innsbruck.

Remote access perfusion for minimally invasive mitral surgery is commonly achieved by femoro-femoral bypass. We describe the use of the carotid artery as an inflow in two patients with severe calcifications of the abdominal aorta and the iliac arteries who underwent minimally invasive mitral and tricuspid valve repair. The easy and fast access to the vessel and the lack of interference with the transthoracic clamp and the scope are the major advantages of the carotid compared other alternatives such as the axillary artery.

Determining the impacts of venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation on cerebral oxygenation using a one-dimensional blood flow simulator.

J Biomech 2020 May 3;104:109707. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Duke University, Durham, NC, USA. Electronic address:

Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is a mechanical system that provides rapid and short-term support for patients with cardiac failure. In many patients, pulmonary function is also impaired, resulting in poorly-oxygenated cardiac outflow competing against well-oxygenated VA-ECMO outflow, a condition known as North-South syndrome. North-South syndrome is a primary concern because of its potential to cause cerebral hypoxia, which has a critical influence on neurological complications often seen in this patient population.

An Overview of the Treatment of Symptomatic Common Femoral Artery Lesions with a Focus on Endovascular Therapy.

Vasc Health Risk Manag 2020 20;16:67-73. Epub 2020 Feb 20.

Midwest Cardiovascular Research Foundation, Davenport, IA, USA.

Endarterectomy of common femoral artery lesions (CFA) carries favorable long-term results and is currently still considered the gold standard for treating these lesions. Although routine stenting has been considered an option for treating the CFA, it has yielded conflicting results and is currently reserved for a bailout of suboptimal endovascular results. Newer therapies with atherectomy or lithoplasty in conjunction with pharmacologic anti-proliferative therapies are promising with less bailout stenting and dissections but randomized trials are needed to confirm their effectiveness and safety.

Preclosing of the femoral artery allows total percutaneous venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and prevents groin wound infection after lung transplantation.

Eur J Cardiothorac Surg 2020 Feb 21. Epub 2020 Feb 21.

Service de Chirurgie Vasculaire, Thoracique, et Transplantation Pulmonaire, Bichat Hospital, Paris University, Paris, France.

Objectives: In lung transplantation (LT), femoral venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) usually requires an open approach that may be associated with severe groin wound infection. In endovascular aortic procedures, preclosing of the femoral artery (PFA) with vascular closure devices allows the percutaneous insertion and withdrawal of large-bore cannulae. We sought to evaluate whether this innovative technique could be applied in the specific setting of LT to achieve total percutaneous VA-ECMO and decrease groin wound infection. Read More

Percutaneous or Side-Arm Graft Right Subclavian Artery Cannulation via Median Sternotomy.

Aorta (Stamford) 2019 Oct 4;7(5):150-153. Epub 2020 Feb 4.

Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Cardiac Surgery, Santissimi. Antonio e Biagio e Cesare Arrigo Hospital, Alessandria, Italy.

Several cannulation sites alternative to the ascending aorta, such as femoral, right axillary, carotid, innominate artery, and, less commonly, apical sites, have been proposed. Cannulation of the right subclavian artery, through sternotomy, is one possible means of establishing cardiopulmonary bypass, hence avoiding a second surgical incision. In our experience, cardiopulmonary bypass flow was adequate and circulatory arrest with antegrade cerebral perfusion was successfully performed in all cases. Read More

Distal Radial and Ulnar Arteries: the Alternative Forearm Access.

Curr Treat Options Cardiovasc Med 2020 Jan 15;22(1). Epub 2020 Jan 15.

College of Medicine, Penn State Heart & Vascular Institute, M.S. Hershey Medical Center, Pennsylvania State University, 500 University Drive, C1517, Hershey, PA, 17033, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Radial artery access for catheter-based procedures has demonstrated improved margins of safety and patient comfort without a loss of efficacy compared with femoral access. Unfortunately, radial access is not always available, so a review of the alternatives such as the ulnar artery and distal radial artery has been completed to understand alternative access sites that may preserve the benefits of distal forearm access without losing the efficacy of traditional transradial access.

Recent Findings: Several different trials have demonstrated the utility of ulnar access as a possible workhorse access point. Read More
