Right ventricular injury and pulmonary embolism: The perils of deep intramyocardial left anterior descending artery dissection in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting.

Ann Card Anaesth 2021 Jan-Mar;24(1):99-101

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, NH Rabindranath Tagore International Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Mukundapur, Kolkata, India.

An inadvertent vent in the right ventricle (RV) resulted during dissection of a deep intramyocardial left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD), during off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB), led to pulmonary artery air embolism and hemodynamic instability, requiring conversion to cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) prior to repair. This required a special maneuver in positioning the patient to identify the RV injury and prevent the pulmonary air embolism. Read More

10-year results of mitral repair and coronary bypass for ischemic regurgitation: a randomized trial.

Ann Thorac Surg 2021 Apr 27. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

GVM Care&Research, Dept of Cardiovascular Surgery, Maria Eleonora Hospital, Palermo (PA), Italy; GVM Care&Research, Maria Cecilia Hospital, Cotignola (RA), Italy. Electronic address:

Background: The decision to treat moderate ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) at the time of coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) remains controversial. We previously conducted a prospective randomized trial that showed a benefit of adding restricted annuloplasty to bypass surgery (CABG-Ring group) in terms of ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) grade, NYHA classification, and left ventricle reverse remodeling. Here, we present the long-term (>10 years) follow-up data from this randomized trial. Read More

Regression of Systolic Anterior Motion in Progressive Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.

Am J Case Rep 2021 Apr 29;22:e931359. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.

BACKGROUND Systolic anterior motion (SAM) is the dynamic anteriorly directed movement of the anterior mitral valve leaflet during systole toward the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT). The history of SAM in progressive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is unclear. It is believed that SAM is an irreversible process that progresses as the gradient over the LVOT increases. Read More

Rapid fall in circulating non-classical monocytes in ST elevation myocardial infarction patients correlates with cardiac injury.

FASEB J 2021 May;35(5):e21604

Biosciences Institute, Centre for Life, Newcastle University, Newcastle, UK.

Myocardial infarction leads to a rapid innate immune response that is ultimately required for repair of damaged heart tissue. We therefore examined circulating monocyte dynamics immediately after reperfusion of the culprit coronary vessel in STEMI patients to determine whether this correlated with level of cardiac injury. A mouse model of cardiac ischemia/reperfusion injury was subsequently used to establish the degree of monocyte margination to the coronary vasculature that could potentially contribute to the drop in circulating monocytes.

Architecture matters: Tissue preservation strategies for tetralogy of Fallot repair.

J Card Surg 2021 Apr 28. Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Background: Great variability exists in repair strategies for the tetralogy of Fallot. While transannular patching, as introduced by Kirklin, was a breakthrough for primary repair, pulmonary regurgitation and a need for reoperation have led to the development of methods that preserve the natural morphology of the right ventricular outflow tract.

Methods: State-of-the-art details of tetralogy of Fallot repair are explained from the standpoint of architectural preservation, especially with regard to sparing native tissue such as the annulus, valve, or infundibulum. Read More

Role of Transesophageal and Epicardial Echocardiography to Assess Surgical Repair in Double-Outlet Left Ventricle.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2021 Mar 27. Epub 2021 Mar 27.

Department Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anaesthesia, Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences & Technology, Trivandrum, India.

A double-outlet left ventricle (DOLV) is a congenital cardiac anomaly that rarely is encountered. This case report demonstrates the echocardiographic features of DOLV in the form of the pulmonary artery arising completely from the left ventricle with D-looped ventricles, especially when evaluated by intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), along with the correlation of characteristic features with cardiac computerized tomography. The features pertinent to the differentiation of DOLV from double-outlet right ventricle and congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries by echocardiography have been described.

Ann Thorac Surg 2021 Apr 20. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Okayama University Hospital, Okayama, JAPAN.

Surgical restoration of subvalvular geometry is very important to prevent recurrence of ischemic/functional mitral regurgitation (MR). We evaluated an approach to the radical repair of left ventricular (LV) remodeling for three different cases with responsible coronary lesions. Leaflet tethering was corrected by tugging of the papillary-ventricular complex, which consists of the base of papillary muscles and posterior LV wall. Read More
