Postoperative Pain Management Strategies and Delirium After Transapical Aortic Valve Replacement: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Anesthesia and Pain Management, Toronto General Hospital, Toronto, Canada. Electronic address:

Objective(s): This study was designed to compare 2 different perioperative analgesia strategies with respect to the incidence of postoperative delirium after a transapical approach for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The authors hypothesized that perioperative thoracic paravertebral analgesia with a local anesthetic would decrease opioid consumption and in turn reduce the incidence of postoperative delirium when compared with systemic opioid-based analgesia after a transapical TAVR procedure.

Design: Prospective, randomized controlled clinical trial. Read More

Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia: A Review for Cardiac Anesthesiologists and Intensivists.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2018 Oct 26. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. Electronic address:

Patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery may be exposed to heparin before surgery, during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), or in the immediate postoperative period. For this reason, cardiovascular surgery patients are at increased risk for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), occurring in 1 to 3% of patients. The diagnosis of HIT can be difficult, if based solely on the development of thrombocytopenia, because cardiac surgical patients have multiple reasons to be thrombocytopenic. Read More

Echocardiographic Assessment of Biventricular Function in 249 Patients During the Peri-Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Period.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2018 Sep 27. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Division of Cardiac Anesthesiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA.

Objectives: At a quaternary care center that regularly performs and cares for patients undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), a database of all adult patients since 2009 was assembled with echocardiographic parameters of left (LV) and right (RV) ventricular function.

Color Doppler Artifact Masking Iatrogenic Aortic Valve Injury Related to an Impella Device.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2018 Sep 27. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Tufts Medical Center, Boston, MA.

The Impella (Abiomed, Danvers, MA) is a minimally invasive transvalvular left ventricular assist device (LVAD) that effectively unloads the left ventricle (LV), especially in patients with ventricular arrhythmias in the setting of a venous-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenator (VA ECMO). Utilization of the Impella device has increased significantly in the last few years for high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention and cardiogenic shock because of its relatively easy implantation in the catheterization lab and the operating room. Although rare, iatrogenic injury of the aortic valve (AV) can be caused by placement of the device across the AV. Read More

Division of Cardiac Surgery, Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA; Heart and Vascular Institute, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA. Electronic address:

Objectives: The use of monitored anesthesia care (MAC) for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is gaining favor in the United States, although general anesthesia (GA) continues to be common for these procedures. Open surgical cutdown for transfemoral TAVR has been a relative contraindication for TAVR with MAC at most centers. The objective of this study was to review the authors' results of transfemoral TAVR performed in patients with open surgical cutdown with the use of MAC. Read More

The Evolving Role of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation in Lung Transplantation: Implications for Anesthetic Management.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2018 Oct 10. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Department of Anesthesia and Pain Management, Toronto General Hospital, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Lung transplantation has become an accepted therapy for most causes of end-stage lung disease. Between 30 to 50% of lung transplants require extracorporeal life support (ECLS). In many lung transplantation centers, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is replacing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) as the primary choice for intraoperative ECLS. Read More
