BACKGROUND: Conventional indices such as prosthetic valve effective orifice area (EOA) or transvalvular pressure gradients (TPG) may be unreliable in predicting left ventricular (LV) reverse remodeling after aortic valve replacement (AVR). We hypothesized that the global LV afterload, including valvular and arterial impedance, could influence LV reverse remodeling after AVR. METHODS: Twenty-three consecutive aortic-stenosis patients (mean age, 76 ± 6.4 years) underwent isolated AVR using contemporary externally wrapped pericardial valves (19 mm, 10 patients; 21 mm 11; 23 mm, 2)...

BACKGROUND: The right gastroepiploic artery (RGEA) is often used for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in Japan. As gastric cancer has a high prevalence in many Asian countries, we investigated problems with surgery for gastric cancer after CABG using the RGEA. METHODS: A total of 860 patients underwent CABG using the RGEA between January 1997 and December 2006. Of these, 13 patients underwent surgery for gastric cancer after CABG. In all cases, the RGEA was harvested by the skeletonization technique, and an antegastric route was used for the anastomosis...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Tricuspid valve replacement has been associated with high mortality and poor long-term outcomes. We report the preoperative risk factors associated with short and long-term outcomes following tricuspid valve replacement with mechanical prostheses. METHODS: In 62 patients who underwent mechanical tricuspid valve replacement, clinical, laboratory, and echocardiographic findings were analyzed using both univariate and multivariate analyses to describe operative and long-term mortality...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Concomitant endovascular stent grafting of the descending thoracic aorta during open repair for acute DeBakey I aortic dissection can be performed in patients with extensive dissection and malperfusion. We analyzed the effects of this strategy on distal aortic remodeling. METHODS: From 2006-2014, acute DeBakey I dissection patients without primary aortic arch tear undergoing open distal hemiarch reconstruction (Standard group) versus those undergoing hemiarch with descending thoracic aorta (DTA) thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR group) were retrospectively reviewed...

PURPOSE: The aim of this research was to assess the performance of a modified bovine stent valve implanted transventricularly in the pulmonary position in sheep with a 3-month follow-up period. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seven modified pulmonary bovine stent valves were transventricularly implanted in the pulmonary position into seven sheep using a delivery system. Stent valve performance was investigated and evaluated hemodynamically, angiographically, and with echocardiograms before, immediately after, and 3 months following implantation...

INTRODUCTION: We evaluated the safety profile of a central cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) cannulation strategy for repair of extent I thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA) with chronic type B dissection in comparison to traditional peripheral CPB cannulation strategies. METHODS: Patients undergoing extent I TAAA repair for chronic type B dissection from 2002 to 2011 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients were grouped by their CPB cannulation strategy. Patients in Group I underwent central aortic cannulation (n = 28) through a left thoracotomy incision...

Cardiac surgery performed on patients in cardiogenic shock is associated with a high mortality and morbidity. This review outlines the current role of preoperative veno-arterial extra corporeal membrane oxygenation to allow hemodynamic stability and organ recovery before definitive cardiac surgery.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in the presence of a mechanical mitral valve (MMV) prosthesis is challenging due to the stiff mitral cage in the boundaries of the aorto-mitral curtain. We describe the technique for TAVR using the ACURATE-neo™ aortic bioprosthesis in a patient with a MMV prosthesis.

BACKGROUND: This study sought to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of perventricular device closure of a doubly committed sub-arterial ventricular septal defect (dcVSD) through a left infra-axillary approach. METHOD: Forty-five patients, with a dcVSD of less than 8 mm in diameter, were enrolled in this study. The pericardium was exposed and opened through a left infra-axillary mini-incision. Two parallel purse-string sutures were placed on the right ventricle outflow tract and under transesophageal echocardiography guidance, a delivery sheath loaded with the device was inserted into the right ventricle and advanced through the defect into the left ventricle...

We present two cases of Amplatzer® device deployment that exhibited long-term failure necessitating surgical correction. The first case illustrates recanalization of a ruptured Valsalva aneurysm with worsening aortic insufficiency after percutaneous repair with the Amplatzer Vascular Plugs and Amplatzer duct occluder, while the second case illustrates recanalization after deployment of the Amplatzer septal occluder in a patient with a pseudoaneursym in a bovine aorta after type I aortic dissection repair. These two cases illustrate the potential long-term complications and limitations in durability with these devices...
