Some cardiac valve masses may have embolic potential with worrisome consequences. We describe the dilemmas of and solutions for a highly mobile papillary fibroelastoma on the aortic valve in a nonsurgical patient undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement. It was performed safely. The potential strategies to minimize the risk of embolization are discussed.

Background and Objective  Short-term results of endovascular intervention for femoropopliteal lesions have been extensively reported; however, there exists a paucity of long-term objective data related to outcomes of these interventions. We sought to characterize these long-term results including patency, limb salvage, and mortality. Methods  From May 2003 to July 2009, all patients who underwent technically successful endovascular balloon angioplasty and/or stenting for Trans-Atlantic Inter-Societal Consensus (TASC) II B, C, and D lesions were identified in a retrospective fashion...

Background  Distal embolization is the detrimental factor in SVG intervention. There is no specific treatment for it except prevention. Guidelines have endorsed the use of embolic protection devices; however, their use is not without complications, and increases the procedural time and cost for the patient. The objective of this study is to analyze the procedural results and immediate outcome in de novo SVG stenting. Methods  A retrospective observational study of patients who have undergone SVG-percutaneous coronary intervention at our institute...

Repeat operations involving the aortic root, ascending aorta, and arch (proximal aorta) are technically challenging. These procedures are associated with higher operative mortality and morbidity. A dedicated surgical team with special skill set is essential to manage these complex patients. Redo root and proximal aortic procedures can be done with acceptable risk in most patients with attention to details involving the surgical procedure, patient selection, and perioperative management.

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is the most severe form of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) that may result in limb loss and even death; thus, the fast and proper treatment should be employed as earlier as possible to prevent these catastrophic consequences. Arterial revascularization is almost always an indispensable treatment option for CLI. Although both endovascular and surgical revascularization procedures have an important role, nowadays, the hybrid revascularization as a combination of these revascularization procedures has also gained increasing popularity in the treatment of patients with CLI...

Worldwide statins are considered to be the first-line pharmacological treatment for dyslipidemia and reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. However, recently various studies have shown its adverse effect on glucose control among diabetic patients and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have revised statin drug labels to include information that increases in fasting serum glucose and glycated hemoglobin levels have been reported. This systematic review objective is to evaluate the risks and benefits of statins in glucose control management of type 2 diabetes patients based on the 44 published journal articles included and obtained through MEDLINE full text, PubMed, Science Direct, Pro Quest, SAGE, Taylor and Francis Online, Google Scholar, High Wire, and Elsevier Clinical Key...

Background  Despite much progress in the surgical and endovascular treatment of thoracoabdominal aortic diseases (TAADs), there is no consensus regarding the optimal approach to minimize operative mortality and end-organ dysfunction. We report our experience in the past 16 years treating TAAD by open surgery. Methods  A retrospective review of all TAAD patients who underwent an open repair since January 2000 was performed. The primary endpoints included early morbidity and mortality, and the secondary endpoints were overall death and rate of aortic reintervention...

REVIEW

The abdominal aorta is the most common site of an aortic aneurysm. The visceral and most proximal infrarenal segment (aneurysm neck) are usually spared and considered more resistant to aneurysmal degeneration. However, if an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is left untreated, the natural history of the aortic neck is progressive dilatation and shortening. This may have significant implications for patients undergoing endovascular repair of AAAs (EVAR) as endograft stability and integrity of the repair are dependent on an intact proximal seal zone...

Aortic arch surgery is a technical challenge, and cerebral protection during distal anastomosis is a continued topic of controversy and discussion. The physiologic effects of hypothermic arrest and adjunctive cerebral perfusion have yet to be fully defined, and the optimal strategies are still undetermined. This review highlights the historical context, physiological rationale, and clinical efficacy of various neuroprotective strategies during arch operations.

Aortic root aneurysm is the most common cardiovascular manifestation requiring surgical intervention in patients with Marfan syndrome (MFS), a heritable thoracic aortic disease. Elective replacement of the aortic root is the treatment of choice for patients with aneurysmal complications of the aortic root and ascending aorta. There are two basic approaches to aortic root replacement: valve-sparing (VS) and valve-replacing (VR) techniques. After successful aortic root replacement surgery, several patients with MFS may develop a late complication related to their aortic disease process, such as developing a pseudoaneurysm of the coronary artery reattachment buttons, aneurysmal expansion, or aortic dissection in the remaining native aorta...

The technologies and innovations applicable to endovascular treatment for complex aortic pathologies have progressed rapidly over the last two decades. Although the initial outcomes of an endovascular aortic repair have been excellent, as long-term data became available, complications including endoleaks, endograft migration, and endograft infection have become apparent and are of concern. Previously, the indication for endovascular therapy was restricted to descending thoracic aortic aneurysms and abdominal aortic aneurysms...

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is defined as a permanent dilatation of the abdominal aorta that exceeds 3 cm. Most AAAs arise in the portion of abdominal aorta distal to the renal arteries and are defined as infrarenal. Most AAAs are totally asymptomatic until catastrophic rupture. The strongest predictor of AAA rupture is the diameter. Surgery is indicated to prevent rupture when the risk of rupture exceeds the risk of surgery. In this review, we aim to analyze this disease comprehensively, starting from an epidemiological perspective, exploring etiology and pathophysiology, and concluding with surgical controversies...

The use of hybrid techniques to avoid neonatal cardiopulmonary bypass in high-risk individuals is well reported in the setting of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. We describe the use of that technique as a bridging procedure in high-risk neonates with an interrupted aortic arch. We report three cases where hybrid branch pulmonary artery banding and ductal stent implantation has been successfully used to defer complete repair, allowing recovery, maturity, and weight gain. This strategy may be considered for patients deemed at high risk for primary neonatal repair...

Background  To report a case of a high-risk patient treated with hypogastric chimney and aortic endograft for a native infrarenal aorta aneurysmal degeneration, 20 years after an aortobifemoral bypass procedure for severe iliac occlusive disease. Methods  A two-stage procedure was planned. The first stage was right internal iliac artery (IIA) embolization and simple angioplasty of left IIA. The second stage consisted of aortouniiliac endograft with femoral crossover and left IIA chimney. Results  Femoral crossover complicated with early thrombosis, but a decision on conservative medical treatment with anticoagulation was made based on no rest pain or severe claudication...

Atrial myxoma is the most common benign tumor of the heart; moreover, atrial myxoma embolization to the peripheral vessels is rare. We present an unusual case of total acute infrarenal aortic occlusion resulting from embolic implantation from a left ventricular myxoma. A 37-year-old man with acute lower limbs ischemia, spinal cord ischemia, and acute renal insufficiency was urgently operated and discharged after surgery.

Device therapy is a viable alternative to open heart surgery in the management of intracardiac defects. The Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO) is one such device that has been adapted to close a wide variety of cardiac defects with few complications and a high success rate. This is a retrospective review of all the patients who received the ASO between 2012 and 2016 at the University of Kentucky. In total, 169 patients underwent percutaneous closure of a septal defect with Amplatzer during the timeframe studied, and of those, 91% received the device for an atrial septal defect or patent foramen ovale...
