Lars G Svensson
Reimplantation of the aortic valve is a procedure well recognized for its safety, excellent success in preserving the leaflets without a composite valve graft, and long-term durability. Unanswered questions are whether the procedure should be used for bicuspid valves and, if so, which ones, and also the role of leaflet repair. In our experience with just under 2,000 aortic valve repairs, we found that use of a root procedure, particularly root reimplantation, resulted in excellent long-term durability. Just as with mitral valve repairs that include an anular ring, it appears that for aortic valve repairs, bracing the root is important...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the incidence of aortitis on a surgical population, establish any relationship with systemic diseases, verify early and late surgical results and provide clinical and radiological follow-up to determine factors potentially predicting progression of the disease and influencing late outcome. METHODS: From 2009 to 2017, 237 patients underwent elective operations on the ascending aorta. Segments of the excised tissues were routinely sent for histological evaluation, providing adequate data in 178 (75%) for a clinical and pathological correlation...

OBJECTIVE: We conducted a preliminary evaluation of the usefulness of personalized 3D-printed models for improving patient comprehension in informed consent for surgical resection of stage I lung cancer. METHODS: From January through March 2018, we enrolled a total of 20 adult patients who were suspected to have stage I lung cancer on a preoperative multi-detector chest computed tomography and decided to undergo elective surgical resection. The patients were randomly assigned to 3D-printing and control arms...

OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that optimal pulmonary valve annulus (PVA) diameter upon annulus preservation (AP) in tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) may be far smaller than the normal diameter. METHODS: Retrospective review of the 61 consecutive patients who underwent ToF repair between January 2016 and September 2017 was performed. Median age, body weight, and median PVA (Z) at repair were 166 days (Interquartile range, IQR, 141-182 days), 7.4 kg (IQR, 6.6-8.0 kg), and -1...

Pulmonary artery dissection is a rare albeit life-threatening event and it mostly occurs as the spontaneous rupture of pulmonary artery aneurysm complicating chronic pulmonary hypertension. Here, we describe a case of blunt traumatic pulmonary artery dissection.

OBJECTIVES: A randomized, controlled trial was conducted to examine the effects of perioperative neuromuscular electrical stimulation on muscle proteolysis and physical function using blinded assessment of physical function. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery were screened for eligibility as study subjects. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either neuromuscular electrical stimulation or the usual postoperative mobilization program...

OBJECTIVE: Only few studies have reported long-term outcome of the transatrial-transpulmonary approach in the current era of management of tetralogy of Fallot(ToF). We investigated 15-year outcome of correction via a transatrial-transpulmonary approach in a large cohort of successive patients operated in the 21st century. METHODS: All infant ToF patients undergoing transatrial-transpulmonary ToF correction between 2000 and 2015 were included(N=177, 106 male, median follow-up 7...

Aortic valve (AV) disease in pediatric patients requires a complex decision process that has an impact on decades of life. The aim of this review is to summarize the current evidence surrounding AV interventions in this patient population. In neonates with critical aortic stenosis, the relative merit of surgical versus balloon valvuloplasty is debated and practices vary depending on centers experience with little comparative literature. In children and adolescents, AV repair has regained interest in the last decades with encouraging early and mid-term results...

OBJECTIVE: To quantify the cost impact of complications of esophagectomy and identify opportunities for reducing costs while optimizing outcomes. METHODS: Patients undergoing esophagectomy at a single institution between 2002 and 2017 were included. Complications were tabulated from clinical data. Direct hospital costs were determined for all encounters between the day of surgery and postoperative day 90. Risk factors were assessed using logistic regression. The relative incremental cost of complications was assessed using multivariable linear regression...
