We describe a case of reversible thrombotic mitral valve stenosis following a valve-in-ring transcatheter mitral valve replacement. Life-long oral anticoagulation in patients who underwent transcatheter mitral valve replacement might be beneficial.

Domino heart transplant, wherein the explanted heart from the recipient of an en-bloc heart-lung is utilized for a second recipient, represents a unique surgical strategy for patients with end-stage heart failure. With a better understanding of the potential advantages and disadvantages of this procedure, its selective use in the current era can improve and maximize organ allocation in the United States. In this report, we reviewed the current status of domino heart transplantation.

We report the use of a total extracorporeal heart for uncontrolled bleeding following a proximal left anterior descending artery perforation, using two centrifugal ventricular assist devices after heart explantation. The literature describing similar techniques and patient outcomes for this "bailout" technique are reviewed.

BACKGROUND: Risk stratification for mitral valve repair or replacement (MVR) is important in the decision-making for treating several mitral valve disease but is rarely studied. We compared the prognostic utility of EuroSCORE, EuroSCORE II, and Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Score for MVR. METHODS: The three scores were retrospectively calculated for consecutive patients undergoing isolated MVR at Auckland City Hospital during 2005-2012 and their discrimination and calibration for mortality and morbidities assessed...

Postoperative radiotherapy for breast cancer may be associated with cardiotoxicity. We present a case of acquired infundibular pulmonary stenosis that developed 43 years after radiotherapy for left breast cancer, which necessitated a right ventricular outflow tract myectomy.

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation as a bridge to cardiac transplantation (BTT) is an effective treatment for end-stage heart failure patients. Currently, there is an increasing number of patients with a LVAD who need a heart and kidney transplant (HKT). Little is known of the prognostic outcomes in these patients. This study was undertaken to determine whether an equivalent outcome would be present in HKTs as compared to a non-LVAD primary HKT cohort. METHODS: We reviewed the United Network for Organ Sharing database from 2004 to 2013...

BACKGROUND: Over the past decade, extracorporeal mechanical support (ECMO) has been increasingly utilized in respiratory failure and cardiogenic shock. There is a need for assessing clinical and financial outcomes of ECMO use. This study presents our institution's experience with veno-arterial ECMO (VA-ECMO) over a 9-year period. METHODS: A retrospective review of our institution's ECMO database identified patients undergoing VA-ECMO between 2005 and 2013 (N = 150)...

OBJECTIVE: Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare congenital heart defect. We reviewed our experience with this condition over the last two decades. METHODS: Between September 1993 and December 2013, 62 patients underwent surgery for APW. Depending on the associated lesions, they were divided into two groups: Simple (Group 1) or complex (Group 2). In the complex group, six patients had a ventricular septal defect, five patients had interrupted aortic arch, three patients had tetralogy of Fallot, two patients had double outlet right ventricle, and one patient had the right pulmonary artery arising from the ascending aorta...

REVIEW

A 75-year-old male with a previous orthotopic heart transplantation performed 28 years ago was incidentally discovered to have an asymptomatic chronic type A aortic dissection. Catheter-induced dissection during coronary angiography was believed to be the culprit factor. Aortic root replacement and aortic valve reconstruction were successfully performed.

A patient with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries without an intrapericardial pulmonary artery (PA) underwent a one-stage total correction, including both branch PA reconstructions, with a bovine pericardial roll at the age of 42 months. She was readmitted 54 months after the operation because of extracardiac conduit bacterial endocarditis and pulmonary infarction. The bovine pericardial roll between the right and left PAs was enucleated, and the surrounding fibrotic tissue (peel) was used as a new branch PA vascular conduit...
