OBJECTIVES: We retrospectively evaluated graft patency in patients who underwent no-touch aortic arterial off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting to determine the optimal selection of target vessels for improved graft patency of composite and sequential radial artery I-grafts. METHODS: The radial artery was anastomosed to the end of an in situ internal thoracic artery and was sequentially anastomosed to non-left anterior descending arteries. This composite graft was defined as an "I-graft...

In patients undergoing repeat sternotomy, the risk of injury to cardiac structures can be reduced by utilizing a technique that provides sustained visualization of structures adherent to underside of the sternum. We discuss the use of a retractor specifically designed for this purpose: the Rultract Resternotomy Retractor™.

An atrial septectomy is often required to create or enlarge a pre-existing restrictive atrial septal defect in patients with univentricular hearts undergoing the bidirectional superior cavopulmonary anastomosis. We describe an alternative surgical technique through the transected cardiac end of the superior vena cava without a right atriotomy successfully performed in 26 patients.

BACKGROUND: Post-sternotomy mediastinitis is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Despite surgical advances in cardiac surgery and improvements in perioperative care, mediastinitis remains a devastating post-operative complication. This study provides a comprehension review of post-sternotomy mediastinitis in the modern era, and discusses the incidence, risk factors, microbiology, prevention, and management of this complication. METHODS: This review was based on a PubMed/MEDLINE literature search up until 9th March 2017 for publications relevant to mediastinitis post-cardiac surgery...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) and its severity after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) have been associated with worse outcomes. Studies have shown that AKI duration (transient or persistent) affects outcomes independently of AKI severity. This study was undertaken to determine the association, risk factors, and outcomes associated with persistent AKI (pAKI) after TAVR. METHODS: Adult patients undergoing TAVR at Mayo Clinic between January 1, 2008 and June 30, 2014 were enrolled...

Aortic root replacement with a biological conduit results in excellent hemodynamics but has limited durability. We report a series of six patients who underwent successful Perceval-S surgical aortic valve implantation following surgical deterioration of a biological valve composite conduit and discuss the technical details and the importance of appropriate valve sizing for this procedure.

BACKGROUND: Conventional indices such as prosthetic valve effective orifice area (EOA) or transvalvular pressure gradients (TPG) may be unreliable in predicting left ventricular (LV) reverse remodeling after aortic valve replacement (AVR). We hypothesized that the global LV afterload, including valvular and arterial impedance, could influence LV reverse remodeling after AVR. METHODS: Twenty-three consecutive aortic-stenosis patients (mean age, 76 ± 6.4 years) underwent isolated AVR using contemporary externally wrapped pericardial valves (19 mm, 10 patients; 21 mm 11; 23 mm, 2)...

BACKGROUND: The right gastroepiploic artery (RGEA) is often used for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in Japan. As gastric cancer has a high prevalence in many Asian countries, we investigated problems with surgery for gastric cancer after CABG using the RGEA. METHODS: A total of 860 patients underwent CABG using the RGEA between January 1997 and December 2006. Of these, 13 patients underwent surgery for gastric cancer after CABG. In all cases, the RGEA was harvested by the skeletonization technique, and an antegastric route was used for the anastomosis...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Concomitant endovascular stent grafting of the descending thoracic aorta during open repair for acute DeBakey I aortic dissection can be performed in patients with extensive dissection and malperfusion. We analyzed the effects of this strategy on distal aortic remodeling. METHODS: From 2006-2014, acute DeBakey I dissection patients without primary aortic arch tear undergoing open distal hemiarch reconstruction (Standard group) versus those undergoing hemiarch with descending thoracic aorta (DTA) thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR group) were retrospectively reviewed...

Several surgical techniques have been described to channel the right pulmonary venous return to the left atrium in the Scimitar syndrome which includes direct reimplantation, graft interposition, or repair. Because these techniques can result in pathway obstruction, Lugones has devised a technique which uses in situ pericardium to construct a wide tunnel connecting the pulmonary venous return to the left atrium. We report the use of Lugones technique in an adult with Scimitar syndrome.
