In 2014, cardiothoracic anesthesiology again generated high-quality scientific work published in highly regarded journals. Our specialty continues to make significant strides in the creation and implementation of protocols to improve outcomes in our patients, which undoubtedly contribute to a safer hospital environment for patients and employees alike. Another theme that stirred a lot of interest in the past year is the search for patient-centered treatment plans. Even though we are still some time away from truly personalized medicine, our specialty starts to ask and answer exciting questions: Would we treat patient A any different from patient B if their genetic profiles were easily accessible? Could individualized treatment choices influence our patients' immediate and long-term outcomes? For this review, we selected a sample of relevant contributions to the field of cardiothoracic anesthesiology in 2014 with potential impact on our clinical routine...

Wendy K Bernstein, Andrew Walker
As innovative technology continues to be developed and is implemented into the realm of cardiac surgery, surgical teams, cardiothoracic anesthesiologists, and health centers are constantly looking for methods to improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. One of the more recent developments in cardiac surgical practice is minimally invasive robotic surgery. Its use has been documented in numerous publications, and its use has proliferated significantly over the past 15 years. The anesthesiology team must continue to develop and perfect special techniques to manage these patients perioperatively including lung isolation techniques and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE)...

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) results from recurrent or incomplete resolution of pulmonary embolism. CTEPH is much more common than generally appreciated. Although pulmonary embolism (PE) affects a large number of Americans, chronic pulmonary thromboembolic hypertension remains underdiagnosed. It is imperative that all patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) be screened for the presence of CTEPH since this form of PH is potentially curable with pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) surgery...

Although pulmonary embolism (PE) affects a large number of Americans, chronic pulmonary hypertension (PH) remains underdiagnosed. It is imperative that all patients with PH be screened for the presence of CTEPH since this form of PH is potentially curable with pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE) surgery. The success of this procedure depends greatly on the collaboration of a multidisciplinary team approach that includes pulmonary medicine, cardiothoracic surgery, and cardiac anesthesiology...

Stress ulcer prophylaxis (SUP) is commonly used in the intensive care unit (ICU), and is recommended in the Surviving Sepsis Campaign guidelines 2012. The present guideline from the Danish Society of Intensive Care Medicine and the Danish Society of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine sums up current evidence and gives clinical recommendations for SUP in the ICU. The GRADE approach was used for grading the evidence (www.gradeworkinggroup.org). In conclusion, existing meta-analyses have been underpowered to reach firm conclusions...

In 2013, the field of cardiothoracic anesthesiology has continued to grow at the same astounding rate as in previous years. It has become increasingly difficult for practicing anesthesiologists to stay current on impactful publications related to our exciting subspecialty. The scientific output has expanded to such a great extent that following the literature in specialty journals barely scrapes the surface of available knowledge. With the recent emphasis on teamwork spanning multiple medical specialties in the care for complex patients, the door has opened for our research to be presented in nontraditional, nonanesthesiology venues...

The future of cardiothoracic anesthesia, simply stated, depends on establishing and maintaining a unique and differentiated quality and identity that promotes and contributes positive value to patients, surgical colleagues, and health system administrators who are all also responsible for seeking value. Cardiovascular anesthesiologists must therefore be prepared to define their value through demonstrating that unique quality. To do this, they must codify and continue to push the leading edge in education, research, and clinical innovation for the subspecialty of anesthesia and thereby ensure a role in defining true value as the best...

A 29-year-old primagravida developed severe chest pains during labor. An emergency caesarean section was performed as the symptoms persisted. Imaging diagnosis immediately after delivery revealed an acute proximal (type A) aortic dissection. The patient was transferred to the nearest cardiothoracic surgery centre and successful emergency surgical aortic repair was performed. The perioperative course of a type A aortic dissection during pregnancy and labor is complicated by time pressure, diagnostic restrictions until delivery and potentially fatal uterine bleeding during cardiopulmonary bypass and hypothermic cardiac arrest...

The hybrid operating room is the venue for transcatheter therapy with the convergence of three specialties: cardiac surgery, cardiovascular anesthesiology, and interventional cardiology. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement is proof that cardiac specialists have embraced the endovascular revolution. Since pharmacologic and ischemic myocardial conditioning are safe and effective, they are currently the focus of multiple trials. Angiotensin blockade, anemia and endoscopic saphenous vein harvesting worsen outcome after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)...
