Resection of sternal tumors can leave large defects, which exposes major mediastinal structures, and can affect respiratory mechanics. If feasible, resection is potentially a complex reconstructive challenge to restore normal and functional anatomy using conventional techniques. We report the first Australian use of a three-dimensional-printed titanium and PoreStar prosthesis in a 39-year-old woman for reconstruction after major surgical resection of the sternum for metastatic breast cancer. The patient successfully underwent excision of the sternum and costal cartilages as well as implantation of the prosthesis...

A 58-year-old white male with a history of stroke and deep vein thrombosis presented with an interatrial intraseptal mass. Cardiac-computed tomography demonstrated a thin-walled, well-demarcated cyst in the inferior border of the fossa ovalis protruding into both atria. Removal of the interatrial intraseptal cyst was performed using a minimally invasive three-dimensional endoscopic periareolar approach.

Mitral valve regurgitation may require complex repair techniques that are challenging in minimally invasive and may expose patients to prolonged cardiopulmonary bypass and cross-clamp times. Here, we present a stepwise operative approach that may facilitate the repair of the mitral valve in a minimally invasive fashion and may be carried out even when multiple posterior segments are involved. This how-to-do article presents a method that was performed in 148 patients that were referred to our institution for severe organic mitral regurgitation between 2008 and 2016...

OBJECTIVE: This study sought to analyze outcomes in patients with moderate-severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The consequences of uncorrected significant TR in patients undergoing TAVR remain undefined. METHODS: Between 2009 and 2014, 369 patients underwent TAVR at our institution, and 58 of these had baseline moderate-severe TR. Preoperative, 30-day, and 1-year transthoracic echocardiograms were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: Surgical management of aortic valve infective endocarditis (IE) with cryopreserved homograft has been associated with lower risk of recurrent IE, but there is equipoise with regard to the optimal prosthesis. This systematic review and meta-analysis were performed to compare outcomes between homograft and conventional prosthesis for aortic valve IE. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE database to September 2017 for studies comparing homograft versus conventional prosthesis...

OBJECTIVE: Transapical off-pump minimally invasive mitral valve repair (TOP-MINI) is a new technique for the surgical repair of degenerative mitral regurgitation based on mitral valve prolapse. The aim of this study is to demonstrate the preoperative planning tools available for starting this new procedure in a safe manner. METHODS: The first patients undergoing TOP-MINI by a single surgeon in 2016 were prospectively included. All patients underwent identical clinical pathways and underwent extensive preoperative planning for a safe start of the program...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is a suitable therapeutic intervention for patients deemed inoperable or high risk for surgical aortic valve replacement. Current investigations question whether it is a suitable alternative to surgery for intermediate- and low-risk patients. The following meta-analysis presents a comparison between transcatheter versus surgical aortic valve replacement in patients that are intermediate and low risk for surgery. Articles were collected via an electronic search using Google Scholar and PubMed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to study the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of transesophageal echocardiography-guided intraoperative left ventricular lead placement via a video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery approach in patients with failed conventional biventricular pacing. METHODS: Twelve patients who could not have the left ventricular lead placed conventionally underwent epicardial left ventricular lead placement by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery...

Chin-Tung Lau, Kenneth K Y Wong
Thoracoscopic resection is being used more commonly for the treatment of congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation in neonates and infants. However, in the rare case of congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation with congenital absence of lung fissure, thoracoscopic lobectomy cannot be performed safely. Moreover, if the lung lesion is deep-seated and cannot be visualized on the pleural surface, wedge resection may result in residual lesion. Here, we reported our approach of thoracoscopic resection under hookwire guidance to tackle this problem...

OBJECTIVE: Because of decreased tactile sensation with thoracoscopic approaches to biopsy, localization preoperatively and intraoperatively is important for successful biopsy. Our study evaluated the technique of combined computed tomography-guided hookwire and methylene blue localization. METHODS: Seventy-five patients from November 2007 to August 2013 who underwent combined Hawkins hookwire and methylene blue localization of 76 total pulmonary nodules before video-assisted thoracic surgery-guided wedge resection were retrospectively reviewed...

Joseph Lamelas, Guilherme V Silva, Subhasis Chatterjee
Mitral annular calcification can pose a formidable surgical challenge in the setting of mitral valve replacement for mitral stenosis. Although there are reports of transapical valve-in-valve transcatheter mitral valve replacement in the setting of degenerated bioprosthetic mitral valve replacement, there is less experience with transcatheter mitral valve replacement for mitral annular calcification. This report describes a patient who previously received a transcatheter aortic valve replacement and then subsequently underwent a minimally invasive right thoracotomy for transcatheter mitral valve replacement with a successful result...

Richard C Cook, Anthony Y Fung, Edward D Percy, John R Mayo
OBJECTIVE: Robotically assisted minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass is an alternative to sternotomy-based surgery in properly selected patients. Identifying the left anterior descending artery when it is deep in the epicardial fat can be particularly challenging through a 5- to 6-cm mini-thoracotomy incision. The objective of this study was to evaluate a technique for predicting conversion to sternotomy or complicated left anterior descending artery anastomosis using preoperative cardiac-gated computed tomography angiograms...

A 72-year-old man with a dual-chamber implantable defibrillator was referred to our center for transvenous lead extraction because of pocket infection and presence of an abandoned lead. We decided to proceed with a video-assisted thoracoscopic approach because of patient history and documented complete occlusion of the right subclavian vein. During the use of excimer laser for persistent adhesions, the ventricular lead broke down at the level of cavoatrial junction. To successfully remove the remaining portion of lead, we decided to use the excimer laser by femoral route...

OBJECTIVE: Several centers have presented minimally invasive surgical approaches to centrifugal left ventricular assist device implantation. Although minimally invasive implantation has been successfully performed by experienced surgeons, at large implanting centers, it is unknown whether these techniques are widely adoptable. We evaluated the experience of a surgeon early in his career with conventional and minimally invasive approaches to device implantation. METHODS: All consecutive left ventricular assist device implantations by a single surgeon in the first year of practice (2015-2016) were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: Aortic valve-in-valve implantation for prosthetic valve dysfunction is a good alternative to reoperative valve replacement. There are some limitations to this approach including the risk of coronary occlusion, patient prosthesis mismatch, and valve malposition. The incidence of coronary occlusion is higher in aortic valve-in-valve than de novo aortic stenosis cases. Multiple factors can contribute to this complication, and the type of bioprosthesis has been implicated. METHODS: We examined our experience of 80 aortic valve-in-valve cases with internally and externally mounted leaflet valves...
