INTRODUCTION: Possible admission to a PRM unit of a hemiplegic patient equipped with a left ventricular assistance device (LVAD) may constitute a cause for concern. We are reporting our observation on the subject. OBSERVATION: A 30-year-old hemiplegic patient presented with left hemiparesis secondary to a right middle cerebral artery (MCA) ischemic stroke having occurred during cardiopulmonary arrest. Persistence of major left ventricle dysfunction necessitated installation on 8 November 2011 of a mono-ventricular HEART-MATE II assistive device...

OBJECTIVES: The twin aims of this study were to identify the independent predictors of 30-day mortality and to analyse the outcomes of patients with cardiogenic shock (CS) associated with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and necessitating extracorporeal life support (ECLS). METHODS: The investigation was a single-centre, retrospective study of 77 patients who required ECLS for AMI with CS. A logistic regression analysis was performed to identify the independent variables associated with 30-day mortality...

Despite the cardiac surgery improvements allowing the correction of the majority of congenital heart diseases with ventricle-great vessels discontinuity, some abnormalities increase the risk of bi-ventricular reparation. We herein report the case of a patient presenting a rare form of double outlet right ventricle with a ventricular loop, with moderate right ventricle hypoplasia. L-malposition of great vessels and pulmonary artery stenosis, and for whom we opted for a palliative surgical treatment including a systemic-pulmonary anastomosis followed by a upper right bi-directional cavo-pulmonary derivation...
