A significant proportion of patients undergoing aortic valve replacement have a dilated ascending aorta; presence of an ascending aorta aneurysm is viewed as a contraindication for sutureless valve implantation for the potential risk of prosthesis dislodgment. We describe our technique of sutureless prosthesis implantation and concomitant ascending aorta replacement through an upper ministernotomy. Seven patients underwent aortic valve replacement with a sutureless prosthesis and concomitant ascending aorta replacement between November 2014 and October 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Besides mechanical and anatomical changes of the left atrium, epicardial closure of the left atrial appendage has also possible homeostatic effects. The aim of this study was to assess whether epicardial clipping of the left atrial appendage has different biochemical effects compared with complete removal of the left atrial appendage. METHODS: Eighty-two patients were included and underwent a totally thoracoscopic AF ablation procedure. As part of the procedure, the left atrial appendage was excluded with an epicardial clip (n = 57) or the left atrial appendage was fully amputated with an endoscopic vascular stapler (n = 25)...

OBJECTIVE: Leg ischemia is a serious complication of femoral artery cannulation. The primary aim of this study was to assess the safety and efficacy of a novel bidirectional femoral arterial cannula (Sorin Group USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of LivaNova PLC, Arvada, CO USA) that provides both antegrade and retrograde flow, in patients undergoing peripheral cannulation for cardiopulmonary bypass during cardiac surgery. METHODS: Patients undergoing routine cardiac surgery requiring femoral artery cannulation for cardiopulmonary bypass were identified preoperatively...

OBJECTIVE: Minimally invasive coronary surgery approach for coronary artery bypass grafting is a safe and reproducible procedure for multivessel revascularization. This study reviewed a single surgeon's experience with minimally invasive coronary surgery coronary artery bypass grafting, including operative time, number of bypasses, and conversion to sternotomy. METHODS: A prospective database of consecutive minimally invasive coronary surgery coronary artery bypass grafting procedures from 2005 to 2013 was reviewed...

There was no report on the application of totally endoscopic surgery for giant atrial myxoma resection. A 62-year-old female patient with giant atrial myxoma causing severe mitral stenosis and acute pulmonary edema underwent a successful operation by totally endoscopic techniques without the assistance of robotic systems using four small trocar ports (three 5-mm trocars and one 12-mm trocar). The patient recovered uneventfully and was satisfied with cosmetic results.

Coronary artery bypass surgery is most commonly performed using a hand-sewn technique with a continuous monofilament suture. The C-Port distal anastomotic device is a miniature stapler designed to create an arteriotomy and attach the graft to the coronary artery all in one step. It is the only distal coronary anastomotic device currently approved for clinical use and can be useful in facilitating less invasive coronary surgery. This report examines the histological attributes of such an anastomosis in a patient who underwent heart transplantation approximately 1 year after robotic totally endoscopic stapled coronary bypass using the C-Port anastomotic device...

OBJECTIVE: The mini-sternotomy approach is becoming a widespread technique for aortic valve surgery. However, its safety for aortic root replacement has yet to be established. The aim of the present study was to compare the operative outcomes of patients who underwent aortic root replacement via upper mini-sternotomy (mini-Bentall) to patients who underwent Bentall procedure via median sternotomy (full-sternotomy Bentall). METHODS: Between November 1998 and November 2016, 91 consecutive patients underwent full-sternotomy Bentall procedure and 26 patients underwent mini-Bentall procedure...

We describe a technique of left atrial appendage occlusion that consists of autologous pericardial patch closure of the left atrial appendage orifice from within the left atrium. This pericardial patch exclusion technique has little added risk of bleeding, can be performed through sternotomy or right minithoracotomy, and can be used in re-operative situations.

OBJECTIVE: Inadequate peripheral venous drainage during minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) is a challenge and cannot always be solved with increased vacuum or increased centrifugal pump speed. The present study was designed to assess the benefit of virtually wall-less transfemoral venous cannulas during MICS. METHODS: Transfemoral venous cannulation with virtually wall-less cannulas (3/8″ 24F 530-630-mm ST) was performed in 10 consecutive patients (59 ± 10 years, 8 males, 2 females) undergoing MICS for mitral (6), aortic (3), and other (4) procedures (combinations possible)...

OBJECTIVE: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement is now commercially available for intermediate-risk, high-risk, or inoperable patients with severe aortic stenosis. In this study, we investigated change in the safety and efficiency of the transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedure at our institution and patient outcomes comparing our first 100, second 100, and last 100 patients. METHODS: From March 2012 to June 2016, 544 patients underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement at our center...

A 74-year-old man presented with progressive dyspnea on exertion. History included peripheral arterial disease and coronary artery bypass grafting with aortic valve replacement 12 years ago. Subsequently, the surgical valve developed severe stenosis and moderate insufficiency. He underwent a transapical valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve replacement 5 years before presentation. This second valve developed a mean gradient of 66 mm Hg with mild insufficiency. The patient was treated with a third aortic valve using an alternative transcaval approach, significantly alleviating his symptoms...

OBJECTIVE: Our goal was to present a case of emergent endovascular repair of a ruptured descending aortic aneurysm in an actively arresting patient. PATIENT: The patient was a 75-year-old woman with a known history of a 6.5-cm descending thoracic aortic aneurysm with acute onset of back pain and syncope. A computed tomographic angiogram revealed disruption of the descending thoracic aorta and a mediastinal hematoma. The patient was taken emergently to the operating room...

OBJECTIVE: Although minimally invasive approaches for surgical treatment of stand-alone atrial fibrillation have gained popularity for the past decade, ablation technology and extensive lesion sets play a major role in the achievement of a successful procedure, especially in presence of persistent and long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation. We evaluated clinical outcomes after totally endoscopic biatrial epicardial ablation of persistent atrial fibrillation with a novel integrated uni-bipolar radiofrequency device...

Recent advances in different percutaneous treatments made insertion of large-caliber sheaths in the femoral veins more common. Venous punctures are historically managed by initial manual compression with subsequent application of a compression bandage and bed rest. We describe a modified "figure-of-eight" suture technique for minimizing the risk of accidental puncture of the vein while grabbing the subcutaneous tissue. We examined the safety and feasibility of this technique combined with early mobilization in a real-world setting...

OBJECTIVE: Patients with a high Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) predicted risk of mortality undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery are known to have worse outcomes. Less invasive approaches have been shown to improve morbidity and mortality for these patients. In this study, we examined perioperative outcomes in higher-risk patients undergoing robotic totally endoscopic beating heart coronary artery bypass surgery. METHODS: The STS predicted risk of mortality was reviewed for patients undergoing robotic totally endoscopic beating heart coronary artery bypass surgery at our institution between January 2013 and May 2017...

OBJECTIVE: Thymectomy considered as a standard procedure in treatment of all the steps of myasthenia gravis. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) thymectomy is one of the minimally invasive procedures that because of the short duration of hospitalization, less postoperative pain, and scar after surgery, nowadays it is replaced the traditional methods of surgery for patients with myasthenia gravis, but there are still differences and concerns. The aim of this study was to compare outcomes of two different techniques of surgery, VATS versus transsternal (TS) in the treatment of myasthenia gravis...
