Neurodevelopmental impairment and impaired quality of life constitute a major source of morbidity among children with complex congenital heart disease, in particular for single-ventricle (SV) morphologies. Risk factors and quality of life determining clinical and neurodevelopmental outcome at 2 years of age are examined. In a 2-center cohort study, 48 patients with SV morphology (26 hypoplastic left heart syndrome and 22 other types of univentricular heart defect) have been examined before Fontan procedure between 2010 and 2015...

Sadip Pant, Kendra J Grubb
Mitral valve disease is common, with mitral regurgitation (MR) being the most frequent pathology. The etiology of MR is diverse, but, if left untreated, MR results in left ventricular (LV) volume overload, leading to remodeling, dilation of the LV, pulmonary hypertension, heart failure, and death. Mitral regurgitation is a high-risk diagnosis, yet a minority of symptomatic patients are referred for discussion of surgical treatment options. Percutaneous repair options are under development to address this clinical need and emphasize correction of the underlying anatomical pathology to restore mitral valve coaptation...

The Pavia group reports their experience with reoperative pulmonary endarterectomy for patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. They achieved impressive results in terms of hemodynamic parameters and functional status; however, a mortality rate of 40% represents inappropriate patient selection. Recommendations are made for identifying ideal operative candidates.

Aortic arch hypoplasia is commonly present in neonates born with ductal-dependant coarctation of the aorta. The ideal surgical repair of neonates with proximal arch hypoplasia continues to be debated. Controversy exists about the fate of the hypoplastic proximal aortic arch following surgical repair and whether that will eventually grow to normal size upon relief of the distal obstruction or will persist as a residual lesion that can affect long-term outlook of those patients. There is new evidence that residual proximal arch hypoplasia and the shape of the reconstructed arch both have an important impact on vascular remodelling and subsequent development of hypertension...

Adults with anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) typically have multiple venous and arterial collateral arteries surrounding the artery, making precise ligation imperative. Most physicians delay mitral valve repair until left ventricular function improves. The objective is to achieve reperfusion through a 2-coronary system reimplanting the ALCAPA into the aorta.

Our current solutions for cardiac valve replacement in young patients are still far from being perfect. In experienced centers the Ross operation offers excellent long-term outcomes including high-risk patients when a valve repair is not feasible. The search for the perfect valve substitute with life-long integrity and natural growth potential continues.

OBJECTIVES: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used increasingly to treat bioprosthetic valve failure. A paucity of data exists regarding valve-in-valve (ViV) TAVR in degenerated Freestyle stentless bioprostheses (FSB). This study sought to evaluate the feasibility and short-term outcomes of ViV TAVR in previously placed FSB. METHODS: From October 2014 to September 2016, 22 patients underwent ViV TAVR with a self-expanding transcatheter valve for a failing FSB at a single institution...

OBJECTIVE: We evaluated principal risk factors and different therapeutic approaches for post-pneumonectomy broncho-pleural fistula (BPF), focusing on open window thoracostomy (OWT). METHODS: We have retrospectively reviewed all patients treated by pneumonectomy for lung cancer from 1999 to 2014; we evaluated preoperative, operative and postoperative data, time between operation and fistula formation, size, treatment and predicting factors of BPF. Cumulative incidence curves for the development of BPF were drawn according to the Kaplan-Meier Method...

OBJECTIVE: Del Nido cardioplegia (DC) offers prolonged cardiac protection with single dose administration and has been shown to be safe in adult CABG surgery. We set out to evaluate the efficacy of cardiac protection and clinical outcomes of del Nido cardioplegia versus standard blood cardioplegia (BC) in minimally invasive aortic valve surgery. METHODS: From 8/2011 to 5/2016, 178 patients underwent minimally invasive aortic valve replacement (AVR) with BC (n=101) or DC (n= 77)...

OBJECTIVE: The optimal surgical repair technique for coarctation associated with aortic arch hypoplasia (CoA/AAH) in neonates and infants is controversial. This study evaluates our current strategy utilizing extended end-to-side anastomosis (EESA) under selective cerebral and myocardial perfusion (SCMP) in treating this group of patients. METHODS: Through a retrospective review, we analyzed the outcome of 87 infants who underwent surgical repair of CoA/AAH from January 2004 to December 2015...

Objectives A main problem with bioprosthesis used for surgical correction of congenital cardiac malformation is their tendency to shrink and to calcify. Recently, a new material i.e. de-cellularised bovine pericardium (CardioCel(®)) was introduced in clinics. It was proposed that this new patch material should not calcify and should be particularly suitable for the correction of vascular defects in inborn cardiac diseases. The aim of our chronic minipig study was to evaluate the performance of CardioCel(®) patches implanted in aortic and pulmonary artery position, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: We seek to evaluate the merit of routine placement of a subpleural tunneled pain catheter delivering local anesthetic as measured by narcotic medication usage and subjective pain score analysis. METHODS: Eighty-six patients were randomized into the subpleural catheter or intraoperative incision site injection groups in a 1:1 fashion and underwent thoracoscopic surgery utilizing two incisions. All patients had standardized anesthetic delivery and postoperative pain control...
