Ventricular assist devices are electromechanical pumps used for circulatory support of patients with severe heart failure. Current ventricular assist device therapy provides a broad spectrum of support systems ranging from short-term to long-term devices. Echocardiography is an ideal modality to monitor patients undergoing mechanical circulatory support because it is less invasive, widely available and can be performed at the bedside. Both long-term and short-term devices require a careful echocardiographic management before implant, during surgical procedure and during postoperative course...

The percutaneous closure of patent forame ovale (PFO) is currently performed in patients with cryptogenic stroke or paradoxical systemic embolism. The availability of new user friendly devices and the increase in knowledge of the pathophysiology, epidemiology, and follow-up of these patients has broadened the indications and drastically reduced the morbidity related to the intervention. This review considers the main pathophysiological and epidemiological features of PFO and discusses the indications and results of the intervention...

BACKGROUND: The development of minimally invasive cardiac surgery has shown good clinical results with shorter recovery time and better cosmetic results. The introduction of the robotic systems can further reduce the surgical trauma and improve the surgical dexterity. We report seven cases of complete closed chest atrial septal defect closure using the "da Vinci" Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Mountain View, CA). METHODS: Following peripheral cannulation for cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), aortic occlusion and cardioplegia delivery, five patients with atrial septal defect (ASD) and two patients with patent forame ovale (PFO) with atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) were successfully treated using the robotic system...
