REVIEW
Ibrahim Sultan, Mary Siki, Tyler Wallen, Wilson Szeto, Prashanth Vallabhajosyula
Although occlusion of the coronary arteries during transcatheter aortic valve replacement is rare, the mortality is high. In this review, we discuss the prevention and management of this complication. Occlusion of coronary ostia is a very rare, but serious, complication of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Although reported as only occurring in <1% of TAVR cases, it carries a high risk of fatality, with some series reporting a mortality rate as high as 40%. We present the management of an occluded left coronary artery after a self-expanding TAVR, and review the incidence, prevention, and management of this complication...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Outcomes after repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) are good with either a transventricular (TV) or transatrial (TA) approach. We sought to determine if there is a relationship between the TV or TA approach and right ventricular (RV) function, and the role of residual pulmonary regurgitation (PR) on the long-term outcomes. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort multicentric study on survivors after surgical repair of TOF (TA versus TV approach, ±transannular patch) between 1990 and 2004...

BACKGROUND: Stentless valves have long been considered the ideal valves in terms of hemodynamics. Recently, the Trifecta valve, a stented bioprosthesis with excellent fluid dynamic characteristics, has become available. The aim of the study was to compare the opening/closing pattern of the Freestyle stentless valve and the Trifecta valve with that of the native aortic valve. METHODS: A total of 12 patients with a Freestyle and 10 with a Trifecta valve were compared to normal native aortic valves in 12 control patients...

Congenital aortico-left ventricular tunnel requires surgical repair during childhood. Long-term surveillance is essential in these patients given the risk for aortic aneurysm development in adulthood. We describe an aortic root replacement for an aortic aneurysm five decades following the closure of an aortic-left ventricular tunnel.

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have become useful adjuncts in the treatment of patients with end-stage heart failure. LVAD implantation is associated with a unique set of problems; one such problem is device infection. We report our experience with flap salvage of infected and/or exposed LVAD hardware. METHODS: Between 2011 and 2016, 49 patients underwent LVAD implantation at our institution. Patients were then categorized by infectious status: systemic infection not directly involving the LVAD device, hardware infection responsive to antibiotics, and exposure of LVAD hardware or device infection refractory to antibiotics requiring debridement and flap coverage...

Late development of annuloaortic ectasia (AAE) and progression of aortic regurgitation (AR) are widely recognized outcomes following an arterial switch operation (ASO). We treated a 29-year-old male with AAE and rapid aortic root expansion, who underwent ASO as a neonate and aortic valve replacement (AVR) as an adult. He was diagnosed as having dextro-(D-loop) transposition of the great arteries after birth and underwent ASO at the age of 13 months. At the age of 19 years, AVR was performed for progressive AR...

Ventricular perforation during exposure of an intramyocardial left anterior descending artery (LAD) in preparation for coronary artery bypass grafting is a known surgical complication. In this report, we discuss the management of this complication which avoids closure of the LAD and a myocardial infarction.

INTRODUCTION: Coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) are rare. We present our experience with the surgical treatment of patients with CAAs. METHODS: Between March 2000 and October 2016, 15 patients with CAA underwent surgery. RESULTS: Mean age of patients was 60 ± 16 years and 47% (n = 7) were male. Kawasaki syndrome was present in two (13%) patients and 7% (n = 1) patients had Marfan syndrome. Isolated CAAs were found in 73% (n = 11) and involvement of multiple vessels was present in 27% (n = 4) of patients...
