A 70-year-old woman with substernal chest pain lasting 2.5 h presented to the emergency department of our hospital. She had a history of aortic valve replacement with the Freestyle stentless aortic bioprosthesis for severe aortic regurgitation 7 years ago. The initial electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm at a rate of 71 bpm with ST-segment slight elevation in leads II, III and aVF. She was diagnosed as having acute coronary syndrome and was referred for an urgent catheterization. Urgent coronary angiography revealed total occlusion in the distal segment of the right coronary artery...

Oesophageal perforation is a severe life-threatening clinical condition with high mortality and morbidity needing rapid interdisciplinary approach to be effectively managed. Recently, on the basis of multicentric retrospective data, we proposed a decision tree for the treatment of oesophageal perforations based on the Pittsburgh Perforation Severity Score (PSS). We now report the first case of a traumatic oesophageal perforation, which was successfully treated according to the application of the PSS decision tree...

OBJECTIVES: First-rib resection is a key component in the treatment of Paget-Schroetter syndrome. We report our experience with robotic first-rib resection. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with Paget-schroetter syndrome underwent thrombolysis followed by robotic first-rib resection. The diagnosis was made by preoperative venography (VA) and magnetic resonance venography. The robot was used to dissect the first rib, disarticulate the costosternal joint and divide the scalene muscles...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidences of innominate artery (IA) involvement in aortic arch pathology necessitating surgery, the surgical strategies and the operative results. METHODS: Among the 366 patients who underwent total/subtotal arch replacement because of non-acutely dissected aortic pathology between 2004 and June 2017, there were 46 (12.6%) patients (29 males; mean age 69 ± 10, range 35-84 years) with IA involvement. Pathologies necessitating replacement of the IA were chronic aneurysm including progression of chronic dissection, severe atherosclerosis with or without an aneurysmatic dilatation, and inflammatory vasculitis in 34, 11 and 1 patient, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to evaluate the difference in the prevalence of long-term arterial hypertension among patients with corrected aortic coarctation according to the existence of associated cardiac congenital lesions. METHODS: We identified 235 patients who had undergone surgery for aortic coarctation and classified them into 2 groups: patients with isolated coarctation of the aorta (CoA) and patients with aortic coarctation associated with complex congenital heart disease...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine the additional costs and length of stay (LOS) due to surgical site infections (SSIs) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) at Jena University Hospital. METHODS: The data of 999 consecutive patients who underwent CABG from January 2013 to December 2014 were collected. We extracted the number, type and duration of antimicrobial therapy and V.A.C.® therapy (negative pressure wound therapy) treatments and calculated the additional SSI-related costs based on the hospital's perspective...

Re-expansion pulmonary oedema following the drainage of pleural fluid is rare. We report a patient with 1 lung who developed life-threatening re-expansion pulmonary oedema following thoracentesis and was rescued with venovenous (VV) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), surviving to discharge 28 days later. An aggressive early rescue therapy with VV ECMO should be pursued for all types of acute lung injury regardless of patient age, comorbidities or transplant candidacy, given the likelihood of native lung recovery following ECMO support...

OBJECTIVES: Donor organ utilization and shortage remain the major limitations to the opportunity of a lung transplantation (LTx). Donation after circulatory determined death (DCD) has been adopted as a source of additional organs worldwide. However, concerns about organ quality and ischaemia-reperfusion injury have limited its application. The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyse a single-centre experience in the DCD LTx and compare early and mid-term outcomes with those from a standard donation after brain death (DBD)...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to analyse outcomes over 2 decades using cryopreserved vascular allografts to treat vascular infection. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of patients identified from our institutional database who were treated for primary or secondary vascular infection using implanted allografts. RESULTS: Between October 1992 and May 2014, 54 patients underwent surgery for vascular infection out of 118 patients implanted with cryopreserved vascular allografts...

OBJECTIVES: We retrospectively analysed our 20-year experience on surgical treatment of native mitral valve (MV) endocarditis in a single institution using an early and repair-oriented surgical approach. METHODS: From August 1991 to December 2015, 192 consecutive patients underwent MV surgery for active endocarditis. Of these, 81% (n = 155) had MV repair while 19% had MV replacement. In-hospital and late outcomes were analysed in the 2 groups and in the subgroups of repair with and without the use of a patch...

This systemic review of the literature and meta-analysis examined the current state of the evidence in long-term outcomes for and/or against aortic valve reimplantation (RAV) versus composite valve graft (CVG) intervention in patients with an acute type A dissection. Descriptive statistics were used to summarize the baseline characteristics of patients across studies. A random-effects metaregression was performed across study arms with logit-transformed proportions weighted by the study size for each of these outcomes...

OBJECTIVES: Although homografts are often the preferred valve conduits for right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) reconstruction, data on long-term homograft-related outcomes, durability and impact on quality of life (QoL) are scarce. The aim of this study was therefore to describe the long-term homograft function, clinical outcomes and QoL after RVOT reconstruction. METHODS: We performed a single-centre retrospective analysis of all consecutive patients who underwent RVOT reconstruction with a homograft...
