BACKGROUND: Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) is frequent after cardiac surgery, but data on its incidence and perioperative risk factors are scarce for children with congenital heart disease. METHODS: SIRS incidence within 72 hours following cardiac surgery was evaluated in a secondary analysis of children enrolled to a treatment-free control group of a randomized controlled trial. Intraoperative parameters were investigated for their association with SIRS using multivariable fractional polynomial logistic regression models...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to present outcomes of bioprosthetic tricuspid valve replacement (TVR) in patients with tricuspid valve infective endocarditis (TVIE). METHODS: From October 2001 to December 2015, 26 patients underwent a bioprosthetic TVR due to severe TVIE after endocardial pacemaker implantation. RESULTS: Staphylococcus species and Streptococcus species were the predominant microorganisms. Early 30-day hospital mortality was 0 (0%)...

The objective of this study is to demonstrate the applicability of virtual angioscopy (VA) in different forms of aortic disease where the diagnosis is unclear or uncertain. Five cases are presented where VA helped to establish a correct diagnosis and to choose the best surgical strategy by providing an intuitive image of the aorta.

BACKGROUND: This study was performed to investigate the pre-existing histologic alterations at the time of complete repair in patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and evaluate their effects on the early postoperative outcomes. METHODS: Fourteen patients, seven with acyanotic TOF (SO2  > 90, group I) and seven with cyanotic TOF (SO2  < 90, group II), undergoing complete repair, were enrolled. Right ventricular biopsies were examined for cardiomyocyte injury and fibrosis by light microscopy and mitochondrial injury by electron microscopy...

We have modified the mitral repair technique in infants and small children by using autologous pericardial strips to treat mitral regurgitation resulting from a dilated mitral annulus. Our results demonstrate that this technique maintains stability and flexibility of the mitral annulus and decreases the risk of mitral stenosis.

Embolism to the central nervous system is a frequent and important complication of infective endocarditis. While early surgery improves outcomes in many groups of patients with infective endocarditis, ischemic stroke secondary to septic embolism carries the risk of hemorrhagic transformation and neurological deterioration with heparinization and cardiopulmonary bypass. We review the literature regarding the surgical management of infective endocarditis in patients with cerebral emboli.

Crisscross heart is a rare cardiac malformation characterized by crossing of the inflow streams of the two ventricles due to a twisting of the heart about its long axis. The developmental mechanisms and causes of crisscross heart remain unknown. Neonates present with cyanosis and a systolic murmur. In this study, we report a case of crisscross heart with situs inversus, concordant atrioventricular and ventriculo arterial connection with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary stenosis, and review the literature on this rare cardiac malformation...

We describe the resection for lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum which necessitated complete reconstruction of the right atrium with Dacron grafts connecting the superior and inferior vena cava with the tricuspid orifice, and connection of the pulmonary veins to the mitral orifice with xenopericardium.

BACKGROUND: There is a 30-60% incidence of recurrent mitral regurgitation (MR) after mitral valve annuloplasty (Ring) for secondary MR. A concomitant papillary muscle sling (Ring+Sling) may improve valve repair by providing a more physiologic geometry of the mitral apparatus. METHODS: We retrospectively identified 58 consecutive patients with moderate-to-severe secondary MR who underwent a Ring+Sling repair, between March 2008 and May 2015. A Ring+Sling consisted of combined annuloplasty and papillary muscle approximation, utilizing a 4-mm polytetrafluoroethylene graft placed around the base of each muscle...
