While the incidence of congenital heart disease has remained relatively stable, survival has increased dramatically. Many of these patients require lifelong specialized cardiac care to address sequelae and residual disease. In order to best meet the increasing demands and needs of this heterogenous group of survivors, multidisciplinary specialty training, lesion specific outcomes research and both personnel and financial resources must be dedicated to their care.

Most surgeons will encounter only a handful of primary cardiac tumors outside of myxomas. Approximately three quarters of primary cardiac tumors are benign and one quarter malignant. In most cases, cardiac tumors are silent but when symptoms do occur, they are primarily determined by tumor size and anatomic location, not by histopathology. The diagnosis and preoperative imaging relies heavily on multimodal imaging including echocardiography, CT, MRI and coronary angiography. Surgical resection is the most common treatment for most simple primary cardiac tumors and for some complex benign tumors...

OBJECTIVE: Troponin-I (TN-I) levels are elevated following pediatric cardiac surgery with speculation that particular patterns may have prognostic significance. There is lack of procedure-specific data regarding postoperative TN-I levels in infants undergoing cardiac surgery. We hypothesized that TN-I elevation varies with type of surgery and persistent elevation predicts poor prognosis. METHODS: We prospectively measured serial TN-I levels (preoperatively, 4, 8, 12, 24, and 48 hours postoperatively) in 90 infants (age < 1 year) undergoing cardiac surgery: off cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) (n = 15), on CPB (n = 43), and on CPB with ventricular incision (CPB with ventricular incision) (n = 32)...

The use of the frozen elephant trunk technique to treat aortic coarctation associated with proximal aortic disease is a smart solution to a complex surgical problem.

OBJECTIVE: The cervical anastomotic leak is a major complication of transhiatal esophagectomy and results in chronic strictures in up to half of patients. A change in postoperative protocol to delaying initiation of oral intake was made with the goal of reducing anastomotic leak rate and associated sequelae. METHODS: A postoperative protocol change was applied to all patients undergoing elective transhiatal esophagectomy. Rate of anastomotic leak and anastomotic stricture, defined as defect in the esophagogastric anastomosis and narrowing of the anastomosis, respectively, were compared between pre- and post-change groups...

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has become widely accepted as a useful, less invasive procedure for type B aortic dissections by covering the primary entry (1). However, depending on the location of the primary entry, it is often difficult to cover the entry from the true lumen without hybrid procedures (2). Here, we describe a successful endovascular treatment using a double-barreled endografting technique for chronic type B aortic dissection, which excludes the dilated false lumen by endografting into the false lumen without covering the primary entry...

BACKGROUND: The proportional incidence of intravenous drug use (IVDU) associated infective endocarditis cases requiring surgery has increased significantly, mirroring the national opioid crisis. Recidivism is common but its impact on postoperative outcomes is unclear. We aimed to evaluate short and mid-termpostoperative outcomes associated with recidivism in this population. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 180 consecutive patients (54 IVDU and 126 non-IVDU) surgically treated for IE from 2011-2016...

To evaluate the utility of a three-dimensional printed model (3D-model) for surgical decision planning in a complex case of multiple ventricular septal defect (VSD) (so-called Swiss-cheese septum). A 3 month-old-girl with diagnosis of multiple apical VSDs in the trabecular septum, perimembranous VSD, and atrial septal defect that resulted in congestive heart failure was referred for surgical intervention. Due to inconclusive understanding of the total number, openings and locations of the apical VSDs, there were concerns regarding the best surgical approach...
