Surgical treatment of a left ventricular apical thrombus via robotic surgery.

J Card Surg 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Health Sciences University Gülhane Training and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

Left ventriculotomy for thrombus removal is usually associated with a high incidence of cardiac arrhythmias and decreased ejection fraction. A 51-year-old male patient was admitted to the emergency department with loss of consciousness. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed a 20 × 24-mm left ventricular apical nonpedunculated thrombus with normal ejection fraction. Read More

Coronary artery dissection following aortic valve replacement. How can one deal with this rare yet life-threatening complication?

J Card Surg 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Coronary Artery Disease and Heart Failure, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Krakow, Poland.

Coronary artery dissection following its cannulation for cardioplegia administration as a result of aortic valve replacement (AVR) is a rare but nevertheless life-threatening complication. The three cases of a patient suffering from aortic stenosis illustrated below focus on the issue of how to identify and treat the dissected artery. In all of the patients who had undergone AVR diagnosed was a periprocedural myocardial infarction. Read More

Modified whole blood microplegia in high-risk patients.

J Card Surg 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, JFK Medical Center, Atlantis, Florida.

Background: Numerous studies have documented the safety of whole blood cardioplegia on clinical outcomes after cardiac surgery. However, there is a paucity of studies investigating the outcomes of whole blood microplegia after cardiac surgery. Our protocol of whole blood microplegia includes removal of the crystalloid portion and utilizing the Quest Myocardial Protection System, for delivery of del Nido cardioplegia additives in whole blood.

Surgical resection of the giant right coronary artery aneurysm.

J Card Surg 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Sapporo Medical University Hospital, Sapporo, Japan.

A 74-year-old man had undergone two-vessel coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), 19 years ago, with the left internal mammary artery (LITA) to the left anterior descending artery and the saphenous vein graft (SVG) to the posterior descending artery. In outpatient care, a thoracic aortic aneurysm was suspected by the chest X-ray. In the computed tomography, appeared the distal arch aortic aneurysm, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), and giant right coronary artery aneurysm (rCAA). Read More

Rapid evaluation of acute pulmonary embolism with thromboembolism-in-transit.

J Card Surg 2019 Feb 10. Epub 2019 Feb 10.

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Gil Medical Center, Gachon Cardiovascular Research Institute, Gachon University, Incheon, South Korea.

We report a case of thromboembolism-in-transit through a patent foramen ovale that could cause systemic embolism in a patient with pulmonary embolism. An accurate and quick diagnosis by transthoracic echocardiography and computed tomography allowed emergent surgical thromboembolectomy to be performed without complications. Integral diagnostic workup should be performed in case of acute pulmonary thromboembolism whether the patient is hemodynamically stable or not. Read More

A new technique of managing paravalvular leak using a folding pericardium patch.

J Card Surg 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, Hangzhou, China.

Paravalvular leakage (PVL) is one of the most well-recognised complications of prosthetic valve replacement. The size of the leakage is usually about one to two stitches. We would like to introduce a new technique to manage this complication by using a folding pericardium patch, which can surely overcome the disadvantage of second-time valve replacement. Read More

Hepatic vein redirection to improve pulmonary arteriovenous malformations after Fontan completion in patients with absence of inferior vena cava and hemiazygos continuation.

J Card Surg 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Osaka Woman's and Children's Hospital, Izumi city, Osaka prefecture, Japan.

Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation is an important complication after Fontan completion in patients with univentricular circulation. Lack of hepatic venous flow in a pulmonary artery has been identified as a cause of pulmonary arteriovenous malformation. We report our experience with a case of redirection of the hepatic vein to the hemiazygos vein using a conduit via left thoracotomy and median sternotomy for the correction of unequal distribution of hepatic venous flow in the pulmonary arteries.

Evaluation of the safety and efficacy of a new hemostatic powder using a quantitative surface bleeding severity scale.

J Card Surg 2019 Jan 10;34(1):50-62. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Advanced Powder Investigators Group (APIG).

Aims Of The Study: The safety and efficacy of a hemostatic powder (HP) versus a control agent, absorbable gelatin sponge and thrombin (G + T), were assessed, using a validated, quantitative bleeding severity scale.

Methods: Subjects were randomized to receive HP (256 subjects) or G + T (132 subjects) for treatment of minimal, mild, or moderate bleeding at 20 investigational sites. The primary efficacy endpoint was non-inferiority of HP relative to G + T for success at achieving hemostasis within 6 minutes. Read More

Department of Cardiology, Detroit Medical Center, Detroit, Michigan.

Objectives: We performed a meta-analysis to determine the outcomes in patients undergoing transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) for mitral regurgitation (MR).

Methods: Databases including MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched through April 2018 using Web-based search engines (PubMed and OVID) to identify single-arm observational (case series) studies of TMVR enrolling ≥5 patients with MR. For each study, data regarding observed 30-day mortality and predicted operative mortality (Society of Thoracic Surgeons Predicted Risk of Mortality) were used to generate risk ratios (RRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs).

Early structural valve deterioration and reoperation associated with the mitroflow aortic valve.

J Card Surg 2018 Dec 7;33(12):778-786. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Corrigan Minehan Heart Center and Division of Cardiac Surgery, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

Background: Structural valve deterioration (SVD) is a known limitation of bioprosthetic valves. Recent reports have suggested a concerning rate of early SVD in patients receiving a Mitroflow aortic bioprosthesis. We therefore compared the incidence of SVD and SVD requiring reoperation among patients receiving a Mitroflow versus a common contemporary bioprosthesis. Read More
