J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Mar 8. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

Department of Internal Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA.

Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE) remains the only curative surgery for patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). Postoperative intensive care unit care challenges providers with unique disease physiology, operative sequelae, and the potential for detrimental complications. Central concerns in patients with CTEPH immediately after PTE relate to neurologic, pulmonary, hemodynamic, and hematologic aspects. Read More

Robotic Cardiac Surgery Part I: Anesthetic Considerations in Totally Endoscopic Robotic Cardiac Surgery (TERCS).

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Feb 27. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Phoenix, AZ. Electronic address:

The application and evolution of total endoscopic robotic cardiac surgery (TERCS) has become greater as institutions and surgeons become more comfortable with robotic technology. Over the years many improvements have been made to facilitate technically challenging cardiac procedures using robotics and increase overall survival and quality of life for these patients. However, a dedicated multidisciplinary approach led by a core group of clinicians is necessary for good patient experience and outcomes. Read More

Perioperative Interrogation of Biotronik Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices: A Guide for Anesthesiologists.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Cardiovascular Anesthesiology, Department of Anesthesiology, The Ohio State University Medical Center, Columbus, OH.

Biotronik cardiovascular implantable electronic devices, specifically Biotronik pacemakers, contain unique features that are relevant to perioperative management. For example, Biotronik pacemakers have a programmable response to magnet application, a default magnet response that does not result in sustained asynchronous pacing, and a unique method of rate adaptation (eg, closed loop stimulation). This review article focuses on these unique features; the interpretation of Biotronik interrogation reports; and the basic programming (eg, mode, rate, rate adaptation, tachyarrhythmia therapies) relevant to the perioperative management of Biotronik cardiovascular implantable electronic devices.

Department of Anesthesiology, College of Medicine, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY. Electronic address:

This is a narrative review of recent articles (mainly published in 2017 and 2018) related to the conduct of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) that should be of interest to the cardiac anesthesiologist. Some of the topics covered include recent guidelines on temperature management, anticoagulation, perfusion practice, use of transesophageal echocardiography during CPB, optimal mean arterial pressure, vasoplegia, bleeding, perioperative anemia, post-cardiac surgery transfusion, acute kidney injury, delirium and cognitive decline, CPB during pregnancy, lung management, radial-to-femoral artery pressure gradients during CPB, prophylactic perioperative intra-aortic balloon pump, del Nido cardioplegia, antibiotic prophylaxis, and use of levosimendan in cardiac surgery. The review concludes with a perspective on the effect of these development on the practice of cardiac anesthesia. Read More

Regional Right Ventricular Volume and Function Analysis Using Intraoperative 3-Dimensional Echocardiography-Derived Mesh Models.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine, University Hospital Tübingen, Eberhard-Karls-University Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany. Electronic address:

Objectives: In daily echocardiographic practice, the right ventricle (RV) is assessed using mostly 2-dimensional (2D) echocardiography. Parameters measuring longitudinal shortening (eg, tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion) or changes in areas (eg, fractional area change) are used as surrogates for right ventricular function. Three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography-based techniques allow for cardiac magnetic resonance imaging-validated assessment of the RV. Read More

Anesthetic Considerations for Aortic Arch Stenting.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of Anesthesiology, Washington University, St. Louis, MO.

With advances in modern day imaging techniques for the aorta, there has been an increasing incidence of vascular diseases involving the aortic arch. Historically, the only treatment option for arch disease has been open arch replacement under circulatory arrest conditions with or without selective cerebral perfusion. However, this open procedure has significant morbidity and mortality, especially in elderly patients with multiple comorbidities. Read More
