Pseudoaneurysm is one of the complications after arterial cannulation. We report the case of a patient with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction due to aortic pseudoaneurysm after surgical mitralvalvuloplasty. Careful evaluation should be performed in cases of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction following cardiac surgery, even after several months.

Caseous calcification of the mitral annulus (CCMA) is considered a rare variant of mitral annular calcification (MAC) due to caseous transformation of the inner material and prevalence of CCMA, about 0.63% of all MAC cases and 0.06%-0.07% of the population. The precise pathophysiology of CCMA is still unknown. It is a chronic degenerative disorder common in the elderly, particularly in women. Caseous calcification of the mitral annulus (CCMA) is a soft peri-annular extensive calcification, resembling cardiac tumors, abscesses, vegetation, or calcified thrombus, which is composed of an admixture of calcium, fatty acids, and cholesterol with a toothpaste-like texture...

OBJECTIVES: Following mitral valve repair for Barlow's disease, recurrent mitral regurgitation (MR) is believed to occur frequently and is mainly attributed to disease progression. METHODS: Between January 2000 and December 2015, 180 patients (40% women, mean age 58.7 ± 13.5 years) with Barlow's disease underwent mitral valve repair. To provide a longitudinal assessment of mitral valve repair durability, a multistate model for interval-censored observations (4 states: 1, Grade 0/1+ MR; 2, Grade 2+ MR; 3, Grade 3+/4+ MR; 4, reintervention/death) was developed...

We report the case of a 38-year-old woman who was admitted for acute cerebral infarction linked to a cardiac calcified amorphous tumor (CAT) and related mitral annular calcification (MAC). The cardiac mass was removed, and mitral valve replacement surgery was performed. Pathological examination revealed an amorphous accumulation of degenerating material within both lesions, indicating that build-up of calcium along the mitral annulus and subsequent rupture of the fibrotic tissue may be involved in the initiation and progression of CAT...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Despite the proven superiority of mitral repair over replacement for degenerative mitral disease, mitral valve replacement remains common. Guidelines now recommend referral of patients, particularly those whom are asymptomatic, to valve centers of excellence, although criteria that define such centers remain to be established. The purpose of this review is to define the structure of a mitral center of excellence and to review current clinical outcomes which are possible in such a center...

OBJECTIVE: Transcatheter mitral valve-in-valve/valve-in-ring procedures (TM-VIVoR) are increasing. The authors aimed to identify independent predictors for hospital mortality in redo mitral valve surgery as possible future selection criteria for TM-VIVoR. DESIGN: Retrospective multicenter registry. SETTING: Tertiary university and community hospitals. PARTICIPANTS: Two-hundred and sixty patients (out of 920 enrolled) who are potentially candidates for TM-VIVoR undergoing redo-surgery...

Objectives: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) and transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR) are increasingly used for managing patients with valvular heart disease to whom surgery presents a high-risk. As these are costly procedures, a systematic review of studies concerned with their economic assessment was undertaken. Methods: The search was performed in PubMed and the Cochrane Library and followed recommended methodological steps. Studies were screened and their data were retrieved and were synthesized using a narrative approach...

BACKGROUND: Isoflurane, a common anesthetic for cardiac surgery, reduced myocardial contractility in many experimental studies, few studies have determined isoflurane's direct impact on the left ventricular (LV) contractile function during cardiac surgery. We determined whether isoflurane dose-dependently reduces the peak systolic velocity of the lateral mitral annulus in tissue Doppler imaging (S') in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. METHODS: During isoflurane-supplemented remifentanil-based anesthesia for patients undergoing cardiac surgery with preoperative LV ejection fraction greater than 50% (n = 20), we analyzed the changes of S' at each isoflurane dose increment (1...

SETTING: Single tertiary academic medical center. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 382 patients who underwent preoperative right and/or left heart catheterization before open aortic valve replacement (AVR), open mitral valve repair/replacement (MVR), or combined AVR and MVR, from July 2009 to December 2014...

The outcome in functional mitral regurgitation after aortic valve replacement is unclear. A frail 82-year-old woman with severe aortic valve regurgitation and mild to moderate functional mitral valve regurgitation (NYHA functional class III) was referred to our clinic. In consideration of her frail condition, aortic valve replacement without mitral surgery was performed. She had hemodynamic instability and difficulty to wean off cardiopulmonary bypass caused by severe functional mitral valve regurgitation with left ventricular dilatation...

Background: The radiofrequency (RF) maze procedure can effectively restore sinus rhythm in most patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) and mitral disease. However, long-term results and predictors for late AF recurrence are still under investigation. Methods: From December 1995 to November 2011, 207 consecutive patients with persistent AF and mitral disease underwent RF maze procedure and concomitant mitral surgery. The mean age was 54±12.4 year-old...

Transcatheter heart valve replacement technology was introduced as alternative to surgery for the growing high-risk profile population. Developed first, aortic valve replacement (TAVR) became a standard of care for patients with severe aortic stenosis at high operative risk, with a potential future use also for low-risk subjects. In the last decade, a multitude of transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) devices have been developed for the treatment of severe mitral regurgitation, with encouraging results coming from first-in-man and feasibility studies...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to investigate the effect of minimally invasive mitral valve repair on early pulmonary function and haemodynamics, as well as its short-term efficacy. METHODS: From March 2012 to July 2015, 78 cases of minimally invasive mitral valve repair and 89 cases of conventional mitral valve repair were included in this study, with 67 well-matched pairs of patients identified by a propensity score matching, who were divided into the conventional sternotomy group and the right minithoracotomy group (the RT group)...

Parachute mitral valve (PMV) is a congenital heart anomaly which consists of a unifocal attachment of the mitral valve chordae into a single or dominant papillary muscle. This morphological anomaly determines the impairment of mitral leaflet motion, resulting in different grades of mitral stenosis. Due to its frequent association with other congenital cardiac defects requiring surgical correction, the therapy of a relevant stenotic PMV is usually represented by surgical commissurotomy. Herein is reported the case of a PMV treated by surgery in infancy, which showed a severe restenosis after 34 years and was successfully treated by percutaneous valvuloplasty with the additional creation of a restrictive atrial communication...

BACKGROUND: The functions of the left ventricle and left atrium are closely associated with the outcomes of surgically treated patients with severe mitral regurgitation (MR). However, both parameters were overestimated in the presence of MR. The present study integrated the left atrium and left ventricle as the left heart (LH) to eliminate the influence of MR within the integrated structure. The study aim was to explore whether the emptying fraction of the LH is a load-independent parameter for patients with MR...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular (LV) perforation is one of the rare and most serious complications of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The study aim was to determine the pathophysiological factors associated with this serious complication. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted of pathophysiological factors shown in echocardiograms and computed tomography angiograms performed preoperatively in patients who developed LV perforation during transfemoral TAVI (study group) with regards to anatomic and functional variables...
