OBJECTIVES: Bioprostheses with pericardial leaflets mounted externally on the stent pose a high risk for valve-in-valve (ViV) procedures. This study analyzed the efficacy and safety of ViV procedures for treating structural valve deterioration (SVD) in Mitroflow bioprostheses. METHODS: Between January 2012 and August 2017, 11 patients (mean age 80.3 ± 5.6 years) were treated for SVD of Mitroflow bioprostheses with transcatheter ViV procedures (six transapical [TA] and five transfemoral [TF]) using balloon expandable bioprostheses...

PURPOSE: We sought to determine the impact of levosimendan on mortality following cardiac surgery based on large-scale randomized controlled trials (RCTs). METHODS: We searched PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane databases, and ClinicalTrials.gov for RCTs published up to December 2017, on levosimendan for patients undergoing cardiac surgery. RESULTS: A total of 25 RCTs enrolling 2960 patients met the inclusion criteria; data from 15 placebo-controlled randomized trials were included for meta-analysis...

BACKGROUND: Patients with end-stage heart failure on left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are predisposed to a high incidence of stroke. Preoperative factors associated with increased stroke risk are poorly understood. METHODS: We performed a single-center retrospective review of all patients from 2009 to 2014 in whom a rotary flow LVAD was implanted. All patients with symptoms of a cerebrovascular event underwent a non-contrast head computed tomography scan...

BACKGROUND: We studied the impact of radical pericardiectomy on early and long-term patient survival, postoperative New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class, and left ventricular ejection fraction in patients with chronic constrictive pericarditis compared to a sub-total pericardiectomy. METHODS: From 1991 to 2016, 41 patients underwent pericardiectomy for chronic constrictive pericarditis. Sub-total pericardiectomy was performed in 17 (41%) and radical pericardiectomy in 24 (59%) patients...

Interruption of the aortic arch, aortopulmonary window, and anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta are very rare congenital anomalies. It is even rarer to have all three anomalies in the same setting. We present a case of a newborn who was diagnosed with these lesions and describe the primary repair of these anomalies.

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: The replacement of a failed composite valve graft is technically more demanding and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. We present our technique and outcomes for reoperations for composite graft failures. METHODS: Between September 2011 and June 2017, 14 patients underwent a redo composite graft replacement. Twelve patients (85.7%) were male, and mean age was 58.4 years ± 12 standard deviation (SD). One patient had two previous root replacements...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: We examined the relationship between serum lactate and hemoglobin levels on renal function and postoperative outcome in low-risk elective coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients. METHODS: Intraoperative hemoglobin and lactate levels were measured in elective isolated CABG patients. Patients with renal dysfunction (baseline creatinine>2 mg/dL) were excluded. Multivariate logistic regression was used to determine associations between lactate, hemoglobin, and acute kidney injury (AKI)...

BACKGROUND: Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS) is an autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder predisposing patients to aneurysm formation and arterial dissection. Aortic root replacement is often performed prophylactically and valve-sparing root replacement (VSRR) has become the procedure of choice. However, in these patients with connective tissue disorders, postoperative pseudoaneurysms may develop. METHODS: All children with LDS undergoing VSRR at a single institution were retrospectively reviewed to identify patients who developed postoperative pseudoaneurysms...

An 81-year-old female developed dyspnea only upon assuming a sitting position. Trans-esophageal echocardiography demonstrated left-to-right shunt flow across the atrial septum when the patient was sitting, and right-to-left shunt flow when she was supine, along with severe aortic insufficiency. She was diagnosed as having platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome and her symptoms were completely resolved following aortic valve replacement, closure of a patent foramen ovale, and shortening of an elongated ascending aorta...

The last decade has witnessed a tremendous growth in the type and complexity of transcatheter cardiovascular interventions that require large-bore access. While the common femoral artery has become the main route for these interventions, sizable cohorts of patients are unsuitable for transfemoral access due to vascular disease or small vessel caliber. Percutaneous axillary access has emerged as a feasible alternative in these patients. We provide a step-by-step guide for transaxillary large-bore access and closure for patients requiring transcatheter interventions...

We report a patient who underwent insertion of an endovascular stent graft in the descending aorta for an aneurysmal type B dissection. The patient developed a proximal type I endoleak which required explantation of the graft and replacement of the descending aorta. Carotid artery cannulation was utilized for antegrade perfusion during the period of circulatory arrest.

BACKGROUND AND AIM: We reviewed our institutional experience with tricuspid valve endocarditis to understand the impact of the opioid epidemic on the incidence of right heart endocarditis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all cases of tricuspid endocarditis managed surgically from January of 2011 to May of 2017. There were no exclusion criteria. RESULTS: A total of 126 patients were identified. There were seven cases in 2011 and 36 in 2016...

BACKGROUND: Stroke and transient ischemic attack after transcatheter aortic valve replacement results in significantly higher morbidity and mortality. Severe carotid artery disease may be a contributing factor to this increased risk. We report our technique and outcomes of combined carotid endarterectomy (CEA) with transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). METHODS: From March 2013 to November 2017 a total of 753 TAVRs were performed at our institution for symptomatic severe aortic stenosis...
