We report the case of a 57-year-old female suffering from recurrent malignant undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma of the left atrium. Metastasis to the posterior mediastinum was detected upon first presentation. Incomplete resections were carried out twice before mitral valve replacement was finally performed. The tumor recurred 16 months later and was treated with radiation therapy, which has proved to be effective in bringing about tumor regression for 2 years, to date. The patient has survived for 7 years since the first surgery...

We present a rare case of mitral regurgitation with anterior mitral leaflet perforation associated with gelatin-resorcinol-formaldehyde (GRF) glue. We performed mitral valve replacement for anterior mitral leaflet perforation occurred 7 years after aortic valve replacement and abscess cavity repair using GRF glue. Long-term follow-up is needed for patients who have undergone surgeries using GRF glue or BioGlue (CryoLife, Inc, Kennesaw, GA) because of the possibility of late complications. In particular, when an eccentric mitral regurgitation is observed after aortic root surgery using GRF glue or BioGlue, anterior mitral leaflet perforation should be considered...

Depending from the etiology of mitral valve pathology and surgical risk, mitral valve surgery is the therapy of choice for most degenerative mitral valve diseases. In isolated secondary mitral valve regurgitation, the indication for interventional or conservative therapy becomes more important. In severe left ventricular dysfunction heart transplantation has to be taken into consideration. If relevant coronary artery disease is present and bypass surgery is indicated, mitral valve surgery is mandatory in severe regurgitation and is subject to a benefit-risk evaluation in moderate regurgitation...

There continues to be a critical need for developing data-informed computational modeling techniques that enable systematic evaluations of mitral valve (MV) function. This is important for a better understanding of MV organ-level biomechanical performance, in vivo functional tissue stresses, and the biosynthetic responses of MV interstitial cells (MVICs) in the normal, pathophysiological, and surgically repaired states. In the present study, we utilized extant ovine MV population-averaged 3D fiducial marker data to quantify the MV anterior leaflet (MVAL) deformations in various kinematic states...

Scientific progress shall ultimately boost the current acceptance level for conservative aortic valve surgery. The present text aimed to report the 23-year long-term follow-up of one patient operated with bovine pericardium cusp extension. Growing confidence in the efficacy of the operation will allow a more expeditious indication for surgical treatment, as is already the case in mitral valve repair. This change of attitude will certainly make it possible for patients to be sent for operation in mild aortic valve regurgitation...

Left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction is a recognized complication of transcatheter mitral valve-in-valve replacement in previous surgical prostheses. We describe a patient who was high risk for repeat open surgery in whom the LVOT was compromised by a surgical strut and the potential for LVOT obstruction. A novel approach to avoiding this complication was utilized. A perfusion balloon was inflated in the outflow tract to provide an opposing force during mitral valve deployment resulting in less flaring of the strut into the outflow tract thereby improving the neo-LVOT area...

Background: Outcome of Mitral Valve Prolapse (MVP) was controversial for long time. Many studies reported great differences in the incidence of cardiovascular events due, above all, to heterogeneous and small studied populations. Most of theme were also published to late '80 of the last century till early '00. Purpose: To make a contemporary survey on the incidence of cardiovascular events in a selected population of patients affected by primary MVP referred to a tertiary cardiovascular center for the medical and surgical care of valvular heart disease...

INTRODUCTION: A 71 year old Peruvian woman presented with blurry vision and bilateral eye pain and had evidence of bilateral endophthalmitis on eye examination. Her past medical history was notable for multiple abdominal surgeries within the preceding months, including an incarcerated inguinal hernia repair which required an ileostomy placement, and cholecystitis requiring cholecystostomy tube placement. Over her multiple long hospitalizations, she developed bacteremia and fungemia on several occasions, with organisms including Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Bacteroides fragilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterococcus faecium, and Candida albicans...

Massive intracardiac and intravascular thrombosis is a rare complication following cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Most of the cases of the disseminated thrombosis have been reported in patients undergoing complex cardiac surgeries and those receiving antifibrinolytic agents during CPB. We report the occurrence of disseminated intravascular and intracardiac thrombosis after CPB in a patient undergoing mitral valve replacement in which no antifibrinolytic agent was used. The possible pathophysiology and management of the patient is discussed...

BACKGROUND: Bileaflet mitral valve prolapse (biMVP) is associated with frequent ventricular ectopy (VE) and malignant ventricular arrhythmia. We examined the effect of mitral valve (MV) surgery on VE burden in biMVP patients. METHODS: We included 32 consecutive patients undergoing MV surgery for mitral regurgitation secondary to biMVP between 1993 and 2012 at Mayo Clinic who had available pre- and post-operative Holter monitoring data. Characteristics of patients with a significant reduction in postoperative VE (group A, defined as >10% reduction in VE burden compared to baseline) were compared with the rest of study patients (group B)...

Mitral regurgitation is the most common valvular heart disease in western world, with moderate to severe mitral regurgitation having a deep impact on prognosis, mortality and rehospitalizations. Advanced congestive heart failure is frequently complicated by mitral regurgitation, a pathologic condition that is often under-diagnosed. A significant proportion of patients with severe mitral regurgitation is not eligible for surgery (mitral valve repair or replacement) because of contraindications or excessive surgical risk...

For the year 2016, more than 20,000 published references can be found in Pubmed when entering the search term "cardiac surgery". Publications last year have helped to more clearly delineate the fields where classic surgery and modern interventional techniques overlap. The field of coronary bypass surgery (partially compared to percutaneous coronary intervention) was enriched by five large prospective randomized trials. The value of CABG for complex coronary disease was reconfirmed and for less complex main stem lesions, PCI was found potentially equal...

BACKGROUND: Echocardiographic analysis of mitral valve (MV) has become essential for diagnosis and management of patients with MV disease. Currently, the various software used for MV analysis require manual input and are prone to interobserver variability in the measurements. AIM: The aim of this study is to determine the interobserver variability in an automated software that uses artificial intelligence for MV analysis. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of intraoperative three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography data acquired from four patients with normal MV undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery in a tertiary hospital...

There are very few data on the prognosis of possible versus definite infective endocarditis (IE). We studied data from 365 consecutive patients with IE involving native heart valve seen in an academic institution from 1990 to 2012. Patients were classified according to the modified Duke criteria for IE: patients with possible IE (n = 101, 28%) and those with definite IE (n = 264, 72%). Patients with possible IE were older than those with definite IE (66 ± 15 vs 62 ± 16, p = 0.05). A causative microorganism was identified in 66% of patients with possible IE versus all patients with definite IE (p <0...
