The treatment strategy for ischemic mitral regurgitation (MR) continues to evolve with the completion of multicenter trials and the advancement of surgical and percutaneous interventional techniques. This review defines ischemic MR, outlines key clinical trials that assess surgical and interventional approaches, and reports the main elements of recent national guidelines for decision making in treatment of ischemic MR. New findings in percutaneous mitral valve repair and replacement for ischemic MR will also be described...

The term "coronary artery anomalies" encompasses a large and heterogeneous group of disorders that may affect origin, intrinsic anatomy, course, location, and termination of the coronary arteries. With these different anatomies, presentation, symptoms, and outcomes are heterogeneous as well. While significant efforts are directed toward improving diagnosis and risk-stratification, best evidence-guided practices remain in evolution. Data about anesthetic management of patients with coronary anomalies are lacking as well...

Alaa Mohamed Khidr, Mohamed R El Tahan, D John Doyle, Yasser Maher Aljehani
We describe the novel combined use of a fiberoptic bronchoscope and a Fuji Uniblocker placed outside the endotracheal tube (ETT) for removal of a retained BioGlue polymerized tissue fragment (2.8 × 0.8 cm) from the right main bronchus (RMB). The patient was a trauma victim who presented with a diffuse axonal injury, cervical spine and maxillofacial injuries, and a flail chest, and the procedure we describe took place following the surgical repair of a disrupted left main bronchus. Endoscopic retrieval using different sizes of grasping forceps and a Dormia basket failed to remove the foreign body (FB)...

BACKGROUND: Open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair is often followed by elevated plasma creatinine, likely due to impaired renal blood flow. We evaluated whether postoperative elevation in creatinine relates to renal oxygen extraction during surgery as an index of renal blood flow and also monitored frontal lobe oxygenation. METHODS: For 19 patients (66 ± 10 years; mean ± SD) undergoing open infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, renal oxygen extraction was determined by arterial and renal vein catheterization...

The mitral valve remains a complex structure where multiple forms of pathology can be seen. Mitral regurgitation continues to be one of the most common valvular diseases in the industrialized world. While intraoperative 2-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography has been commonplace for some time, 3-dimensional technology has emerged and has shown great benefit for diagnosis and guidance during mitral valve surgery. In the hands of a trained sonographer, high-quality real-time images can easily be obtained and correlate well with gross anatomical findings...

Atrial fibrillation is a very common arrhythmia whose prevalence is expected to increase significantly as the population ages. The associated stroke risk is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Stroke prevention by anticoagulation carries its own risks, leading to the search for alternative strategies. Multiple techniques have been developed to exclude the left atrial appendage (the main source of thromboembolism in atrial fibrillation) from the circulation. Such techniques offer the hope of stroke prevention without the risks of anticoagulation...

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) insertion is an increasingly common treatment of advanced heart failure. Insertion guidelines suggest regurgitant lesions of the mitral valve should not be addressed. However, recent evidence suggests that mitral regurgitation may not necessarily improve with LVAD insertion, and such patients may have worse outcomes. Thus, practice variability is high given the discrepancy between traditional thinking and new evidence that unrepaired mitral regurgitation may increase perioperative mortality...

PURPOSE: Sepsis causes significant morbidity and mortality after cardiac surgery and carries a significant burden on health care costs. There is a general association of increased risk of post-cardiac surgery sepsis in patients with postoperative complications. We sought to investigate significant patient and procedural risk factors and outcomes associated with sepsis after cardiac surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, we analyzed 531 coronary artery bypass grafting and open heart valve surgery cases that developed postoperative sepsis in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database between 2007 and 2014...

Truncus arteriosus is a congenital cardiac lesion in which failure of embryonic truncal septation results in a single semilunar valve and single arterial trunk providing both pulmonary and systemic circulations. Most patients with this lesion are symptomatic in the neonatal period with cyanosis and/or congestive heart failure and undergo complete repair in the first weeks of life. This review will focus on the anatomy, physiology, and perioperative anesthetic management of patients with truncus arteriosus.

Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is a rare congenital anomaly with several anatomical variants and is often associated with other intracardiac and/or extracardiac congenital anomalies. Historically, associated with high early mortality, outcomes for this anomaly have improved in recent eras with advances in perioperative and anesthesia management and refinements in surgical technique. This review provides a description of surgical anatomy, anatomical classifications, and associated congenital lesions as well as an examination of the perioperative and surgical management of IAA in the contemporary surgical era...

Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is defined as the loss of luminal continuity between the ascending and descending aorta and is classified based on the anatomic level of interruption. IAA is associated with a number of intracardiac anomalies with the most common being patent ductus arteriosus, ventricular septal defect, and left ventricular outflow obstruction. There is also a strong association between type B interruption and 22q11 deletion syndrome. The perioperative management of the neonate with IAA begins in the intensive care unit with optimization of end-organ perfusion and function...

OBJECTIVE: In this single-center, retrospective review, we sought to determine the risk factors associated with the development of severe acquired airway disease (AAD; vocal cord paralysis [VCP] or subglottic stenosis [SGS]) in pediatric patients who had undergone surgery for congenital heart disease (CHD) with cardiopulmonary bypass. All patients who required surgical treatment for CHD using cardiopulmonary bypass at our institution between 2010 and 2015 were reviewed. We defined severe AAD as either clinically significant VCP, SGS, or both, requiring consultation with the otolaryngology (ENT) service for evaluation...

Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is a rare form of critical neonatal heart disease in which there is lack of continuity between the ascending aorta and the descending thoracic aorta. In the absence of prenatal diagnosis, patients with IAA present in shock when the patent ductus arteriosus closes. Diagnosis can generally be made by echocardiography, and initiation of prostaglandin E1 infusion allows for adequate lower body perfusion prior to surgical repair. Full neonatal repair can be achieved with good outcomes in most cases...

Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PA-IVS) is a rare complex cyanotic congenital heart disease with heterogeneous morphological variation. Prenatal diagnosis allows for developing a safe plan for delivery and postnatal management. While transthoracic echocardiography allows for detailed delineation of the cardiac anatomy, additional imaging modalities such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and catheterization may be necessary to further outline features of the cardiac anatomy, specifically coronary artery anatomy...

BACKGROUND: In the past 2 decades, usage of high-volume-low-pressure microcuffed tracheal tubes in smaller children has increased. However, there is paucity of evidence of its usage in smaller children undergoing congenital cardiac surgery. The aim of this study was to assess if microcuff endotracheal tubes in neonates and younger children undergoing congenital cardiac surgery is associated with better outcomes than uncuffed tubes. METHODS: We carried out this single-center, prospective, randomized study between June and November 2016...

Pheochromocytomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors, with published incidence of 2 to 8 cases per million patients per year. The extension of these tumors into the vena cava and right atrium is rarely seen. Transesophageal echocardiography may be invaluable to delineate tumor extent and characteristics, which in turn may provide a useful tool to guide intraoperative surgical approach to these uncommon masses. In the case presented in this article, we describe the role of transesophageal echocardiography in guiding a safe and complete, excision of an invasive pheochromocytoma without embolization of tumor components...

Prostacyclin (prostaglandin I2 [PGI2 ]) is an eicosanoid lipid mediator produced by the endothelial cells. It plays pivotal roles in vascular homeostasis by virtue of its potent vasodilatory and antithrombotic effects. Stable pharmacological analogues of PGI2 are used for treatment of pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular failure. PGI2 dose dependently inhibits platelet activation induced by adenosine-5'-diphosphate, arachidonic acid, collagen, and low-dose thrombin. This property has led to its use as an alternative to direct thrombin inhibitors in patients with type II heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) undergoing cardiac surgery...

Preoperative evaluation of incidentalomas for pheochromocytoma is imperative. This case report describes a scheduled adrenalectomy in an asymptomatic patient with what was eventually determined to be an incomplete biochemical workup. The intraoperative course was complicated by labile and rapid increases in blood pressure and heart rate, suggesting the missed diagnosis of pheochromocytoma. It is important for anesthesiologists to ensure adequate preoperative biochemical workup before excluding the possibility of coexisting pheochromocytoma...

Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PA/IVS) is a rare right-heart obstructive lesion with a wide anatomic and physiologic spectrum of disease, ranging from simple membranous pulmonary valve atresia with a fully developed right ventricle (RV) to a severely hypoplastic RV and ventriculocoronary (RV-coronary) fistulas. Affected neonates are dependent on prostaglandin for adequate pulmonary blood flow. Depending on the severity of disease, treatment options range from transcatheter pulmonary valve perforation and ultimate biventricular repair to staged single-ventricle palliation...
