OBJECTIVE: We performed closure of the patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) using a hybrid approach with an Amplatzer Duct Occluder. METHODS: Six patients (two males and four females) underwent PDA closure at a mean age of 7.8 months (range 2-24 months) and a mean weight of 6.6 kg (range 4.5-13 kg). The main pulmonary artery (MPA) was exposed via a minimally invasive left parasternal second intercostal space incision. Under transesophageal echocardiography guidance, the PDA occluder was implanted via direct puncture of the MPA...

INTRODUCTION: Incomplete coronary revascularization is associated with suboptimal outcomes. We investigated the long-term effects of Incomplete, Complete, and Supra-complete revascularization and whether these effects differed in the setting of single-arterial and multi-arterial coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). METHODS: We analyzed 15-year mortality in 7157 CABG patients (64.1 ± 10.5 years; 30% women). All patients received a left internal thoracic artery to left anterior descending coronary artery graft with additional venous grafts only (single-arterial) or with at least one additional arterial graft (multi-arterial) and were grouped based on a completeness of revascularization index (CRI = number of grafts minus the number of diseased principal coronary arteries): Incomplete (CRI ≤ -1 [N = 320;4...

Although Chagas disease is a rare entity in North America, it is associated with significant cardiac morbidity. It is estimated that 20-30% of those who are infected will eventually develop cardiovascular disease secondary to Chagas disease. We review the literature and share our experience on the surgical management of this challenging patient population.

BACKGROUND: Dacron tube grafts have been used in the surgical management of cardiovascular disease since the 1970s. Complications at the site of the anastomosis have been well described. Non-anastomotic failure is far less common. We present a series of four patients who presented with complications of non-anastomotic failure of woven Dacron tube grafts. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of four patients who presented to our institution between March 2014 and March 2017 with clinical complications of a Dacron tube graft was conducted...

BACKGROUND: The associations between mechanical circulatory support (MCS), acquired von Willebrand syndrome (AvWS), and clinical outcome are incompletely understood. METHODS: In 128 heart failure patients with pulsatile MCS implants (65 total artificial heart or biventricular assist device implants, 63 left ventricular assist device [LVAD] implants) and 76 patients with continuous flow LVAD implants, we analyzed the von Willebrand factor (vWF) profile before (≤24 h) and 17...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the safety and benefits of new techniques and technologies such as single-dose (del Nido) cardioplegia and suture fasteners (COR-KNOT) in patients undergoing mini-thoracotomy for degenerative mitral valve repair (MVR). METHODS: From 2009 to 2016, 252 patients underwent primary isolated degenerative MVR by mini-thoracotomy by a single surgeon. Del Nido cardioplegia was used in 153 patients (61%) and COR-KNOT in 168 (67%). Patient outcomes were compared using propensity-matching separately for del Nido versus Buckberg cardioplegia and COR-KNOT versus knot-pusher...

REVIEW
Craig Basman, Umar Rashid, Yuvrajsinh J Parmar, Chad Kliger, Itzhak Kronzon
Vacuum-assisted thrombectomy (VAT) is a mechanical suction device that can be deployed to aspirate thrombi in the heart and vascular system. Successful percutaneous aspiration of iliocaval, right heart, and pulmonary arterial thrombi have been reported, in addition to the debulking of intravascular and intracardiac masses and vegetations. VAT is indicated for patients who are poor surgical candidates and/or have a contraindication to thrombolysis. This review discusses the mechanism, current results, potential clinical indications, and limitations of VAT for iliocaval and intracardiac mass removal...

Aortic graft prostheses are susceptible to infection that can have catastrophic consequences with an operative mortality of nearly 50%. Management options include graft excision and replacement, aortic re-routing, and graft preservation techniques. This review summarizes the management of thoracic aortic graft infections.
