Phrenic nerve palsy (PNP) is a potential complication of cardiac surgery. It may prolong ventilation and hospitalization and result in significant morbidity and mortality. The diagnosis and management of PNP following cardiac surgery is reviewed.

A 40-year-old female with previously repaired tetralogy of Fallot had recurrent severe tricuspid regurgitation with a para-ring leak after annuloplasty ring placement. Because of multiple prior sternotomies and co-morbidities, she was not felt to be a surgical candidate. Percutaneous placement of an oversized SAPIEN 3 valve-in-ring in the tricuspid position successfully treated the regurgitation and para-ring leak.

Left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction due to systolic anterior motion of the anterior mitral valve leaflet (AML) is a known complication after mitral valve repair or transfemoral/transapical mitral valve implantation (TMVI). We present a patient with a previous mitral valve repair who developed LVOT obstruction after TMVI in whom the AML was surgically resected using a transaortic approach.

BACKGROUND: Primary cardiac adipose tumors are rare. There are two distinct pathologically defined entities that represent this tumor type: lipoma and lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum (LHIS). We present a single-center experience with these tumors and demonstrate that the location may not correspond to the pathologic diagnosis. METHODS: A retrospective review of a prospectively collected cardiac surgery database from January 1990 to July 2016 identified 254 cases of surgically treated primary cardiac tumors at our Institution...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter mitral valve-in-valve (TMVIV) and valve-in-ring (TMVIR) implantation for degenerated mitral bioprostheses and failed annuloplasty rings have recently emerged as treatment options for patients deemed unsuitable for repeat surgery. METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted to summarize the data regarding the baseline characteristics and clinical outcomes of patients undergoing TMVIV and TMVIR procedures. RESULTS: A total of 245 patients (172 patients who underwent TMVIV surgery and 73 patients who underwent TMVIR surgery) were included in the study; 93...

OBJECTIVE: Left atrio-ventricular valve (LAVV) regurgitation after repair of an atrio-ventricular septal defect (AVSD) may necessitate further surgery. However, redo-LAVV repair remains challenging. We sought to determine if more LAVV valves are preserved in the current era, and analyze early and longer-term results. PATIENTS: All consecutive patients with repaired AVSD who underwent redo-LAVV surgery from January 2004 to April 2017 were included. Patients with single ventricles, atrial isomerism, and complex associated anomalies were excluded...

BACKGROUND: We performed a single-center retrospective analysis to determine whether preoperative serum albumin levels were associated with postoperative adverse events and short- and long-term survival in patients who underwent continuous-flow left ventricular assist device (CF-LVAD) implantation. METHODS: From November 2003 through March 2016, 526 patients underwent CF-LVAD implantation. Patients whose preoperative serum albumin level was normal (≥3.5 g/dL) were compared to patients with preoperative hypoalbuminemia (<3...

A patient with residual thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm and chronic dissection extending into the branch iliac arteries underwent staged open and endovascular repair. Open repair of the reno-visceral segment was performed with an "elephant trunk" trunk graft placed distally into a 12-cm infra-renal aorta. One month later, the patient underwent a successful completion endovascular aortic repair. This case demonstrates the utility of combining traditional and endovascular surgery to manage complex aortic pathologies...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to review the morbidity and mortality associated with mitral valve repair versus replacement in infective endocarditis patients. METHODS: A comprehensive search was undertaken among the four major databases (PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and Ovid) to identify all available data comparing mitral valve repair or replacement in infective endocarditis. Databases were evaluated and assessed to March 2017. Data were analyzed using meta-analytical techniques including odds ratio and mean weighted difference...

A 27-year-old female with Eisenmenger's syndrome underwent closure of a patent ductus arteriosus, closure of a perimembranous ventricular septal defect and mid muscular defect and bilateral lung transplantation. Her immediate postoperative course was complicated by severe right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) obstruction resulting in hemodynamic collapse, a condition described as suicide right ventricle. The patient was placed on central Veno-Arterial Extra-Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation as a bridge to the relief of RVOT obstruction which included a right ventricular outflow muscle resection and a right ventricle outflow tract patch...
