The proper proximal landing zone is a key element for success of endografting in thoracic aortic pathology. If coverage of innominate artery is unavoidable for safe proximal landing, arch debranching surgery is necessary to recruit supra-aortic blood flow before endografting. However, calcified or adhesive ascending aorta makes it difficult to clamp ascending aorta for anastomosis in the first step of arch debranching surgery. We present a novel "no clamp complete parachute technique" to complete this challenging anastomosis...

Background Global longitudinal strain is reduced in heart transplant recipients, but little is known about regional contractility of the transplanted heart. Moreover, it is unclear if factors such as time after transplant and ischemic time have an influence on regional contractility. To test for regional changes in myocardial deformation, we assessed regional myocardial deformation using three-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography in heart transplant recipients and controls. Methods Global and regional longitudinal, circumferential, and radial strain was assessed in 51 heart transplant recipients and a control group of healthy individuals (n = 26)...

Background Acute aortic dissection type A (AADA) is one of the most life-threatening situations and surgical demanding procedures even today. Usually AADA develops spontaneously, but it can be related also to interventional procedures. Methods We analyzed the data of 14 patients surgically treated in our institution with catheter-induced AADA (ciAADA) during coronary angiography between January 2004 and December 2014. Data were compared with overall AADA patients in this time period (n = 288). Results Nine of the 14 patients were female...

Background The aim of this study was to evaluate long-term dilatation of Hemashield Gold and Hemashield Platinum vascular prostheses in ascending aortic position using different measurement methods to obtain precise results. Methods Between 1999 and 2007, 73 patients with Stanford type A dissection received ascending aortic replacement with Hemashield Gold and Hemashield Platinum prostheses. Measurements were performed using multiplanar reconstruction mode of electrocardiogram (ECG)-gated, multislice spiral computed tomography (MSCT) in strictly orthogonal cross-sectional planes...

Background Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have revolutionized the treatment of patients with end-stage heart failure. These devices are replaced when pump complications arise if heart transplant is not possible. We present our experience with HeartMate II (HMII (Thoratec, Plesanton, California, United States)) LVAD pump exchange. Materials and Methods We retrospectively reviewed all cases that required pump exchange due to LVAD complication from November 2011 until June 2016 at a single high-volume institution...

Background Sternal infiltration of breast cancer (BC) is a rare but known phenomenon. Sternal resection for this cancer is not completely investigated. For this reason, the aim of this study was to examine long-term survival and prognosticators for prolonged survival of our patients after sternal resection. Also, morbidity and mortality were investigated. Materials and Methods We retrospectively analyzed our prospective database of 20 patients who underwent a sternum resection (partial/complete) for BC in our institution between 2003 and 2014...

Background Long-term nasogastric tubes are uncomfortable and associated with complications such as impairment with speech and swallowing, septum trauma, epistaxis, alar necrosis, and intubation of the trachea among others. Pharyngostomy tubes (PTs) are an alternative for prolonged enteral feeding, transluminal drainage of collections, and gastric decompression in patients with an intestinal obstruction and an inoperable abdomen. Patients and Methods This is a retrospective analysis of patients who had a PT placed at our institution from May 2005 to March 2015...

Objectives Despite encouraging late outcomes, the use of bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) grafting for myocardial revascularization in diabetic patients remains controversial because of an increased risk of sternal wound complications. In the present study, early- and long-term outcomes of the use of left-sided BITA versus single internal thoracic artery (SITA) grafting in young (< 65 years of age) diabetic patients were reviewed retrospectively. Methods A total of 250 propensity score pair-matched diabetic patients, operated on between February 2000 and December 2011, receiving either BITA (n = 125) or SITA (n = 125) grafting were analyzed retrospectively...

Background Right ventricular failure is a life-threatening postoperative complication after pericardiectomy. We conducted a retrospective study with a special emphasis on right ventricular failure. Methods Between June 1997 and September 2011, 69 patients underwent surgical pericardiectomy at our center. Mean age was 59 ( ±  15.5) years, and 49 (71%) patients were male. Causes of constrictive pericarditis included idiopathic (52%, n = 36), tuberculosis (9%, n = 6), postcardiotomy (12%, n = 8), radiation (4%, n = 3), renal insufficiency (12%, n = 8), and autoimmune disease (12%, n = 8)...
