FIVHeMA: Intraventricular fibrinolysis versus external ventricular drainage alone in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: A randomized controlled trial.

Neurochirurgie 2019 Feb 9;65(1):14-19. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of neurosurgery, CHU de Caen, 14000 Caen, France; Inserm U1237 'physiopathology & imaging of neurological disorders', university of Caen Normandy, 14000 Caen, 14000, France; Université Caen Normandie, Medical School, 14000 Caen, France.

Introduction: Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating form of stroke, which often causes acute hydrocephalus requiring the insertion of an external ventricular drain (EVD). A major complication of aneurysmal SAH is delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). As DCI is linked to the presence of blood within the subarachnoid space, it has been hypothesized that removing this blood may decrease the risk of DCI. Read More

To repair or not to repair: a case report of atrioventricular groove hematoma during mitral valve surgery.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2019 Jan 9;14(1). Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Yokohama Sakae Kyosai Hospital, 132 Katsura-cho, Sakae-ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa, 247-8581, Japan.

Background: Atrioventricular groove hematomas during mitral valve surgery range from simple hematomas to complex atrioventricular disruptions that cause frank rupture with massive bleeding and subsequent mortality. A small or moderate-sized hematoma is reported to be present in the left atrioventricular groove in 10 to 30% of all patients immediately after mitral valve replacement. Despite the fact that atrioventricular groove hematomas are inherently unstable and unpredictable, conservative strategies are recommended due to the high mortality associated with additional surgical repair.

Intraoperative Ventriculostomy Using K Point in Surgical Management of Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.

World Neurosurg 2019 Feb 10;122:e248-e252. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Department of Neurosurgery, Eulji University Eulji Hospital, Seoul, South Korea. Electronic address:

Background: Intraoperative ventriculostomy in the surgical management of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is frequently performed to reduce increased intracranial pressure. The previously suggested ventriculostomy points have some limitations because the dura mater must be opened to be accessed and it is difficult to measure the exact entry point in patients with brain edema. We propose a new intraoperative ventriculostomy point (K point) for use in the surgical management of aneurysmal SAH patient with severe brain edema. Read More

Városmajori Szív és Érgyógyászati Klinika, Szívsebészeti Profil, Semmelweis Egyetem 1122 Budapest, Városmajor utca 68.

Introduction: Although surgical specialties utilize static models for preoperative planning, the evolution of dynamic planning methods and computer simulations created the opportunity for the introduction of dynamic parameters in cardiac surgery. Our aim was to apply 3D models in cardiac surgical practice, predicting fluid dynamic results, ventricular shape, volume and function before the operation.

Methods: Using a script developed by us, the raw DICOM files were imported, the dilated left ventricle was modeled and fluid dynamic parameters were simulated, such as flow kinematic and profile analysis, turbulence calculation and myocardial response to shear stress. Read More

"Frozen Apex" Repair of a Dilated Cardiomyopathy.

Semin Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Winter;30(4):406-411. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Iseikai Hospital, Osaka, Japan.

We try to make surgical ventricular restoration simpler and more adjustable to safely enhance ventricular function. In eight patients with DiDonato type III dilated cardiomyopathy, we applied a few short-axis purse-string sutures to the endocardial side of the left ventricular apex ("Frozen-Apex" restoration) to make a smaller, cone-shaped apex, based on the concept that the left ventricular apex is important in its existence, but not in its function. The procedure took less than 15 minutes in all the patients. Read More

Fetal diagnosis of right cardiac ventricular aneurysms: A report of three cases.

J Gynecol Obstet Hum Reprod 2018 Nov 20;47(9):481-485. Epub 2018 Jun 20.

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, CHI Poissy-Saint-Germain, 10, rue du Champ-Gaillard, 78300 Poissy, France.

Congenital ventricular aneurysms and diverticula are rare congenital heart diseases, currently accessible to prenatal diagnosis. Information on the natural course of ventricular aneurysm or diverticulum detected during fetal life is limited as there are only few case reports and case series enumerating the defect. We aimed to describe through three cases, the prenatal features and clinical outcomes of fetal cardiac aneurysms. Read More

[Risk factors for the development of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias following surgical reconstruction of the left ventricle].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2018;24(2):158-163

Federal Centre of Cardiovascular Surgery under the RF Ministry of Public Health, Penza, Russia.

Death in patients with postinfarction aneurysms of the left ventricle (LV) is mainly caused by life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias - ventricular tachycardias (VTs) and ventricular fibrillations (VFs). Surgical reconstruction of the LV may potentially lead to disruption of the re-entry mechanism, lying at the basis of ventricular tachyarrhythmias. A series of authors demonstrated high efficacy of such procedures as endocardectomy and radiofrequency ablation of the borderline zone of the LV. Read More

An unusual case of giant aneurysm of the noncoronary sinus of Valsalva with rupture into the left ventricular outflow tract along with distortion of the mitral valve.

Echocardiography 2018 09 19;35(9):1467-1470. Epub 2018 Jun 19.

Department of Echocardiography, The First Hospital of Jilin University, Jilin, China.

Aneurysms of the aortic sinus are well-known clinical entities that can bulge into adjacent heart chambers or vessels. They usually reside in the right ventricle and very rarely bulge into the left ventricle causing mitral valve deformation. A 47-year-old man was admitted for shortness of breath and chest pain after exertion. Read More

[The false aneurysm of the left ventricle complicating mitral valvular surgery].

Rev Med Brux 2018 May 31. Epub 2018 May 31.

Service de Cardiologie, Hôpital Civil Marie Curie, C.H.U. de Charleroi.

The false aneurysm of the left ventricle is a rare complication after a mitral valvular surgery. It results from the rupture of the ventricular wall inside an adhering pericardium, thus constituting a cavity whose wall is devoid of myocardial elements and communicates with the ventricle by a large collar. Its clinical presentation remains not very specific with an insidious spontaneous evolution which is generally done towards rupture with sudden death by tamponade. Read More
