Bentall procedures are traditionally performed through a median sternotomy. However, minimally invasive approaches are increasingly being utilized. A right mini-thoracotomy approach may improve postoperative recovery.  A 5-cm mini-thoracotomy is performed in the right 2nd intercostal space. A camera port is placed lateral to this incision. Peripheral cannulation is performed. The ascending aorta is cross-clamped. Cardioplegia is administered and the patient is placed in deep hypothermic circulatory arrest to construct the distal aortic anastomosis...

Surgical simulation devices can be helpful and cost-effective adjuncts to on-the-job training. In this tutorial we present our method for creating an aortic stenosis model with realistically fragile and crushable calcifications, using modern 3D-printing techniques.  The model can be used for training and surgical simulation and is an effective aid to learning for young cardiovascular surgeons.

The use of artificial polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) chordae has been widely adopted in the setting of mitral valve repair. In this tutorial, we present a modified technique for neochordae placement using a semi-rigid complete ring, with a chordal sizing system. This ring was introduced with the aim of standardizing neo-chordae implantation and we introduce a modification of the implantation technique in the presence of myxomatous leaflets.

Marek Jasinski, Scott Rankin
Approximately one-third of patients suffering from aortic insufficiency (AI) present also with an ascending aortic aneurysm. AI is most commonly due to a combination of sinotubular junction and annular dilatation. Valve reimplantation or prosthetic valve replacement may not be ideal for these patients, and ascending aortic aneurysm resection with aortic valve repair using geometric internal ring annuloplasty is a simple, successful, and reproducible alternative treatment approach. In this video tutorial we demonstrate aortic valve repair using the HAART 300 annuloplasty ring with concomitant ascending aorta replacement...

Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are currently the best alternative to cardiac transplantation for patients with end-stage heart failure (HF) as a bridge to transplant or to decision, or as destination therapy. Full median sternotomy or minimally invasive techniques are the more standard approaches used at present.  LVADs are usually implanted between the left ventricle apex and the ascending aorta. An implantation through a left thoracotomy with an outflow graft connected to the descending aorta is much less performed nowadays due to the longer times to extubation, higher incidence of postoperative pain, and poorer hemodynamics in the ascending aorta, which may lead to thrombosis...

Atrial fibrillation, as the most prevalent arrhythmia, has more impact on morbidity and mortality than any other rhythm disorder. It is often concomitant with structural heart diseases like coronary artery disease. The worst complication of atrial fibrillation is stroke, but the double or triple antithrombotic therapy especially in fragile and elderly patients is associated with significant risk of bleeding. The left atrial appendage occlusion may reduse both the risk of stroke and drug intake. Here we present, to our knowledge, the first description of a simultaneous totally thoracoscopic 3D augmented coronary artery bypass grafting and left atrial appendage occlusion...

The radial artery is a versatile bypass conduit that is being used with increasing frequency for an arterial coronary bypass strategy due to its excellent long-term patency and survival benefits. Open radial artery harvesting allows for careful dissection of the radial artery with minimal risk for endothelial damage, which helps to prevent vasospasm. Our technique for open radial artery harvesting and preparation is presented here.

Atrial fibrillation is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing mitral valve surgery. There is a growing consensus that patients with preexisting atrial fibrillation should undergo surgical ablation at the time of mitral valve surgery. Novel surgical ablation techniques, including cryoablation, have been developed to facilitate concurrent minimally invasive procedures. This video tutorial describes a combined cryo-maze procedure and mitral valve repair through an upper ministernotomy in a patient with long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation and severe mitral regurgitation...

We demonstrate the technical aspects of a novel adjustable mitral ring. This new ring was implanted in a female landrace pig, for training and educational purposes. It can be adjusted independently in the P1, P2 and P3 segments, if required, to treat  recurrent mitral regurgitation, and this is a key difference to comparable devices. The first-in-man implantation is anticipated in the near future.

During the past decade transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has revolutionized our approach to heart valve disease. Although largely applied to patients with calcific aortic valve stenosis, there is an unmet clinical need to also treat patients with aortic valve insufficiency in patients with non-calcific aortic valve disorders. The following Techno-College tutorial demonstrates our pre-clinical experience with a novel non-occlusive, self-homing TAVI system, developed with Strait Access Technologies, that we hope will improve outcomes for treatment of non-calcific aortic valve insufficiency...

Aortic surgery is sometimes complicated by aortic arch anomalies. This tutorial illustrates the technique of single-stage thoracic aorta replacement and aortic valve replacement via a clamshell thoracotomy in acute aortic arch dissection with proximal aneurysms of the left subclavian artery and an aberrant right subclavian artery. The advantage of this technique is that only brief partial hypothermic circulatory arrest is required and the procedure can be performed with one quadrifurcated tube graft.

The Damus-Kaye-Stansel (DKS) anastomosis was originally described for the treatment of transposition of the great arteries but it is now used mainly for the treatment of single ventricle anomalies in patients who are at risk of developing systemic ventricular outflow tract obstruction (SVOTO). In most instances, DKS is performed as a concomitant procedure at time of bidirectional cavopulmonary connection in these patients. This tutorial we demonstrate our modified double-barrel approach, along with anterior patch augmentation of the distal ascending aorta...

We present a modified bicuspid aortic valve reimplantation operation using a unique technique of second line, continuous suturing during implantation of the aortic valve scallop to the prosthesis that mimics stentless, minicylinder implantation.  The feasibility of bicuspid aortic valve repair with associated aortic root management has been demonstrated. However, this repair seems to be less durable than tricuspid aortic valve repair, and this may be partly because of the connective tissue disorders that are an inherent feature of bicuspid aortic valve disease...

Apical aneurysms are outpouchings of the left ventricular apex that are relatively common in patients with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with midventricular obstruction. Apical aneurysms have been associated with ventricular tachycardia and sudden cardiac death, but surgical resection may reduce the risks of these complications. In this tutorial, we describe resection of a left ventricular apical aneurysm in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and midventricular obstruction...

Bioprosthetic aortic valves have been used with increasing frequency over the past two decades, often in relatively young patients who may eventually require aortic valve re-operations due to degeneration of the bioprosthesis. Growing experience with minimally invasive aortic valve replacement has prompted surgeons to use minimally invasive approaches also with redo operations for replacement of the aortic valve.  This tutorial describes the operative steps for a minimally invasive redo replacement of the aortic valve through an upper ministernotomy...

Daniella Bissessar, A Tomšič, Thomas van Brakel, Robert Klautz, Meindert Palmen
Surgical repair in rheumatic mitral valve disease is technically challenging as the disease affects both valvular and subvalvular structures. Due to the resultant shortage of pliable valve tissue, pericardial patch techniques are progressively used to restore normal valve function. This makes mitral valve repair possible even in the most severe forms of rheumatic mitral valve disease. In this tutorial, we report a case of mitral valve repair with a bileaflet (decellularized) pericardial patch in a patient with severe rheumatic mitral valve disease...

Double outlet right ventricle with subpulmonic ventricular septal defect is a very rare form of congenital heart disease. Surgical correction involves closure of the ventricular septal defect with baffling of blood flow from the left ventricle to the pulmonic valve and arterial switch of the usually side-by-side great arteries. In this tutorial, we present our surgical technique for single-stage repair of this complex anomaly.

Surgical staging of lung and pleural cancers is crucial for planning treatment and assessing prognosis. In some cases, we need to explore both the mediastinum and the pleural cavity to confirm or rule out tumor dissemination. The combination of video-assisted mediastinoscopic lymphadenectomy (VAMLA) and thoracoscopy through a single transcervical incision allows the surgeon to widen the range of the exploration and improve the staging for lung and pleural cancers.  VAMLA consists of complete removal of the mediastinal fat and lymph nodes of the subcarinal space, the right paratracheal and pretracheal areas, and the left paratracheal space...
