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...

Device thrombosis is a devastating complication of left ventricular assist devices. The definitive treatment has been device exchange or explant. Evidence of increasing morbidity and mortality with device exchange has shifted strategies toward conservative management. In this report, we detail the use of thrombolytics as salvage therapy in a patient with an occlusive HeartWare ventricular assist device (HeartWare Inc., Framingham, MA) thrombus, resulting in long-term survival without further intervention.

OBJECTIVES: Axillary artery cannulation has been used as an alternative site for cardiopulmonary bypass during surgery for aortic dissections and aneurysmal disease of the ascending aorta and arch. This study reports our experience with reusing the axillary artery for cardiopulmonary bypass during complex aortic and cardiac surgical procedures. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of a single surgeon's experience of recannulating the axillary artery for redo operations in complex aortic surgery...

BACKGROUND: We reviewed the long-term results of surgery for discrete subaortic membrane (SubAM) from a single institute. METHODS: A retrospective review of medical records of all patients (n = 146) who underwent resection of a SubAM for discrete subaortic stenosis between 1990 and 2015 at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India was undertaken. RESULTS: Median age at surgery was 9.0 years (9 months-47 years). There was one early death...

Despite advances in surgical techniques for mitral valve repair, more than 20% of patients require reoperation within 10 years due to recurrence of severe mitral regurgitation. However, reoperations on the mitral valve are often associated with increased morbidity and mortality. We report a transapical mitral valve-in-ring implantation in a patient who had undergone mitral valve repair for ischemic mitral regurgitation using a complete semi-rigid Memo 3D mitral ring (LivaNova Group, Milan, Italy).

BACKGROUND: The Fontan procedure is rarely performed in adults and adolescents in the present era. We review our results with the Fontan procedure in adolescents and young adults. METHODS: Between 1974 and 2010, 79 consecutive patients underwent the Fontan procedure at an age ≥ 15 years (mean age at Fontan operation, 20.3 years ± 4.5 years). Forty-five patients underwent atriopulmonary connection, 11 underwent the Bjork procedure, and 23 underwent total cavopulmonary connection...

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 reviews our experience with traumatic tricuspid insufficiency (TTI) following blunt chest trauma. METHODS: From January 2010 to June 2016, 10 patients (nine males, mean age 49.0 ± 12.4 years) underwent surgical treatment of TTI following blunt chest trauma. The mean intervals between trauma and diagnosis and between trauma and surgery were 74.1 and 81.8 months, respectively. Preoperatively, all patients exhibited severe tricuspid regurgitation...

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 report the management of an acquired Gerbode defect, from the left ventricle to the coronary sinus, following mechanical mitral valve replacement. Following a failed percutaneous closure, surgical patch closure of the defect was performed.

A normally functioning bicuspid aortic valve that is spared during replacement of the ascending aorta may ultimately require replacement due to structural deterioration. We report the use of trans-aortic valve replacement to replace a stenotic BAC 17 years following replacement of the ascending aorta.

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to compare the bidirectional superior cavopulmonary anastomosis (BDG) with or without cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). METHODS: 100 patients undergoing BDG were randomized into two groups: Off-CPB or on-CPB groups. All patients underwent near-infrared spectrophotometry (NIRS) and bispectral index (BIS) monitoring and pre- and postoperative serum 100 beta protein measurements (Sβ100) and neuro-cognitive evaluation. Postoperative intensive care unit (ICU) parameters were also studied...

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)...
