Coronary sinus injury is a very rare complication of cardiac surgery and is usually related to coronary sinus perfusion catheter placement for retrograde cardioplegia infusion. It can be either a catheter-related perforation or high-perfusion pressure-related injury to the coronary sinus. Primary repair of the coronary sinus or over-sewing are two possible options to resolve this complication. Decellularized extracellular matrix from porcine intestinal submucosa is widely used as an approved material for repairing cardiac structures...

OBJECTIVES: Our goal was to describe a new standardized approach in patients with extensive obliterative arteriopathy aimed at distal revascularization and surgical kidney recruitment via descendo-bifemoral bypass grafting and renal artery revascularization. METHODS: Three patients with Leriche's syndrome and either a compromised single kidney or unilateral significant renal artery stenosis were treated with a standardized surgical approach, restoration of distal perfusion via descendo-bifemoral bypass with synchronous (n = 2) left-sided renal artery revascularization or metachronous (n = 1) right-sided renal artery revascularization...

OBJECTIVES: Total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC) performed in the second decade of life has rarely been studied. Thus, we investigated (bicentric study) early and late morbidity and mortality following completion of TCPC in these patients. METHODS: From January 1999 to June 2014, 63 patients (14.5 ± 2.9 years) underwent TCPC (extracardiac conduit). Palliation before completion was an isolated bidirectional cavopulmonary shunt (BCPS) in 3 patients or BCPS associated with additional pulmonary blood flow (APBF) that was either antegrade (Group 1) in 38 (63%) or retrograde (Group 2) in 22 (37%)...

OBJECTIVES: Intimal hyperplasia leading to graft failure in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is related to vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) proliferation. SMCs respond to a variety of mediators, the most important of which is platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). The platelet-derived growth factor-induced cellular response has been shown to be mediated by caveolins. The aim of this study was to analyze CAV1-3 expression in internal thoracic artery (ITA) grafts used in CABG and correlate their expression with graft occlusion...

OBJECTIVES: To analyse perioperative results, long-term survival and freedom from complications after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in young adults. METHODS: A total of 163 patients, 40 years old or younger, had isolated CABG from January 1989 to December 2010. Pre- and perioperative demographic and clinical data were retrieved from a prospectively organised database. Follow-up data were obtained by letter or telephone interviews. The mean age of the patients was 37...

OBJECTIVES: Aortic valve bypass (AVB) (apico-aortic conduit) remains an effective surgical alternative for patients in whom surgical aortic valve replacement or transcatheter aortic valve implantation is not feasible. However, specific complications include thrombus formation, possibly caused by stagnation arising from flow competition between the antegrade and retrograde flow, but this has not been fully investigated. The aim of this study was to analyse flow characteristics after AVB and to elucidate mechanisms of intra-aortic thrombus using computational fluid dynamics (CFD)...

OBJECTIVES: The Berlin Heart EXCOR(®) (EXCOR) paediatric ventricular assist device is used worldwide for mechanical support of infants and small children with end-stage heart failure. A clinically important gap between the smallest EXCOR blood pump (10 ml) and the next larger size (25 ml) limited the choice of pump size in patients with a body surface area (BSA) between 0.33 and 0.5 m(2) We present the first clinical experience from the early product surveillance (EPS) of the new EXCOR 15-ml blood pump...

OBJECTIVES: Previous research suggests that female gender is associated with increased mortality rates after surgery for Stanford A acute aortic dissection (AAD). However, women with AAD usually present with different clinical symptoms that may bias outcomes. Moreover, there is a lack of long-term results regarding overall mortality and freedom from major cerebrovascular events. We analysed the impact of gender on long-term outcomes after surgery for Stanford A AAD by comparing genders with similar risk profiles using propensity score matching...

OBJECTIVES: A partial upper sternotomy has become established as a less invasive approach mainly for single and double valve surgery. This report evaluates the clinical outcomes of triple valve surgery performed through a partial upper sternotomy. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 37 consecutive patients (28 men, 76%) who underwent triple valve surgery through a partial upper sternotomy between 2005 and 2015. The patients' mean age was 67 ± 17 years; 27 (73%) were in New York Heart Association Class III or IV...

A congenital quadricuspid aortic valve accompanied by ostial obstruction of the left coronary artery is extremely rare and has not yet been reported in an infant. We herein describe an infant with ostial obstruction of the left coronary artery caused by a small left coronary cusp that formed a pouch. The patient's cardiac function deteriorated due to progressive myocardial ischaemia, and translocation of the ostium of the left coronary artery was performed. Postoperative coronary angiography revealed good filling of the left coronary artery...

OBJECTIVES: Both kaolin- and Celite-activated clotting times (ACT) are used to guide anticoagulation during cardiopulmonary bypass. It is unknown whether these methods lead to similar management procedures for anticoagulation in patients and are thus interchangeable in terms of bias, precision and variability. METHODS: We randomized 97 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting or aortic valve replacement to either kaolin- or Celite-guided anticoagulation...
