BACKGROUND: We sought to investigate the impact of radial artery harvesting techniques on clinical outcomes using a meta-analytic approach limited to randomized controlled trials and propensity-matched studies for clinical outcomes, in which graft patency was analyzed. METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted using PubMed and MEDLINE to identify publications containing comparisons between endoscopic radial artery harvesting (ERAH) and open harvesting (ORAH)...

Surgery is indicated for symptomatic patients with papillary fibroelastomas (PFE) on the aortic valve. The valve is commonly spared during tumor excision. Rarely, aortic valve replacement (AVR) is needed. We present a case requiring AVR for an aortic valve PFE and review the literature to determine the risk factors for failure of aortic valve-sparing techniques in patients with PFE.

A global outbreak of invasive Mycobacterium chimaera infections after cardiac surgery has recently been linked to bioaerosols from contaminated heater-cooler units. The majority of cases have occurred after valvular surgery or aortic graft surgery and nearly half have resulted in death. To date, infections in patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have not been characterized in the literature. We report two cases of device-associated M. chimaera infection in patients with continuous-flow LVADs and describe challenges related to diagnosis and management in this population...

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to assess the clinical efficiency and safety of simultaneous transcatheter interventional treatment for perimembranous ventricular septal defect (pmVSD) combined with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). METHODS: Twenty-five patients with pmVSD and PDA treated with simultaneous transcatheter interventions from April 2004 to December 2015 were included in this study. The mean age was 9.80 ± 8.14 years and the mean weight was 29.76 ± 14...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Left ventricular (LV) distention, a recognized complication in patients supported with veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) for refractory cardiogenic shock, can lead to pulmonary edema, increased myocardial oxygen consumption, and LV thrombus formation. Atrial septostomy was examined as a management strategy for LV distension. METHODS: Of 72 patients supported with VA-ECMO, seven patients underwent atrial septostomy through a trans-septal approach...

We describe a case involving a successful Fontan procedure for the treatment of pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas in a patient with polysplenia. The patient was diagnosed with bilateral superior vena cavae, interrupted inferior vena cava with azygos connection, wide separate hepatic veins, and central pulmonary artery stenosis following repair of a non-confluent pulmonary artery. Bilateral extracardiac conduits were used to connect each hepatic vein to the pulmonary artery, opposite each superior vena cava. Clinical improvement in the pulmonary arteriovenous fistulas was observed within 4 months after surgery...

An interventricular septal hematoma is a rare complication after patch closure of a ventricular septal defect (VSD). We describe three cases of interventricular septal hematomas following patch VSD and discuss their management.

OBJECTIVE: To compare the outcome and the 1-year hemodynamic results of the rapid-deployment Intuity valve versus the Perimount Magna bioprosthesis in matched populations. METHODS: Between March 2014 and May 2015, 32 patients underwent aortic valve replacement with the Intuity valve (Intuity-group). These patients were compared to a matched population of Perimount valves implanted during the same period of time (Perimount-group). Clinical data were compared and echocardiographic 1-year follow-up was performed...

AIMS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and echocardiographic results and the predictors of outcomes in patients undergoing valve-sparing operation (VSO) at two aortic centers. In addition, we sought to evaluate the potential effect of recreation of the sinuses of Valsalva (SV) on the outcome of valve-sparing procedures. METHODS: During a 14-year period, 328 patients underwent aortic valve-sparing root replacement at two institutions. Clinical and echo evaluation was performed 6 months after surgery and every year thereafter or in case of clinical symptoms...

PURPOSE: Involvement of qualified specialists with proficiency in endovascular therapies has created flux regarding the role of cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, and other catheter-skilled specialists in the management of type B aortic dissections. We used manuscript authorship trends and recent match data in order to study how multi-specialty involvement in treating aortic dissections has changed in the endovascular era. METHODS: A PubMed review of published literature between 1998 and 2015 was performed with "aortic dissection" in the title...

We report a 38-year-old female, who presented with progressive dyspnea and fatigue. Echocardiography revealed a giant and freely mobile left ventricular myxoma causing left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction. The patient underwent totally endoscopic robotic excision of a giant left ventricular myxoma. The tumor was completely removed through the mitral valve orifice with a left atriotomy incision.

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Septic emboli (SE) associated with infectious endocarditis (IE) can result in splenic abscesses and infectious intracranial aneurysms (IIA). We investigated the impact of SE on patient outcomes following surgery for IE. METHOD: From January-2000 to October-2015, all patients with surgical IE (n = 437) were evaluated for incidence and management of SE. RESULTS: Overall SE was found in 46/437 (10.52%) patients (n = 17 spleen, 13 brain, and 16 both)...
