Advanced heart failure continues to be a leading cause of morbidity and mortality despite improvements in pharmacologic therapy. High demand for cardiac transplantation and shortage of donor organs have led to an increase in the utilization of mechanical circulatory support devices. The total artificial heart is an effective biventricular assist device that may be used as a bridge to transplant and that is being studied for destination therapy. This review discusses the history, indications, and perioperative management of the total artificial heart with emphasis on the postoperative concerns...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have reported the systematic use of exclusive enteral nutrition in the perioperative setting. AIMS: To test the hypothesis that exclusive enteral nutrition provides a safe and effective bridge to surgery and reduces post-operative complications, in adult patients with Crohn's disease requiring urgent surgery for stricturing or penetrating complications. METHODS: Patients treated with exclusive enteral nutrition prior to surgery were each matched with two control patients for disease behaviour, type of surgery, age at diagnosis and disease duration...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical resection offers the best chance of cure for patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLMs). Two-stage hepatectomy (TSH) has been demonstrated to be safe and effective to obtain curative resection in patients with multiple, bilobar CRLMs that are unresectable in a single procedure. Up to now TSH has been the prerogative of dedicated liver surgery centers. The aim of this study was to assess the safety and effectiveness of TSH also in community hospitals. METHODS: Of 294 patients operated on for CRLMs between September 1997 and June 2012 in 2 district community hospitals (belonging to the same regional healthcare district), 43 (14...

Patients listed for organ transplant frequently have severe coronary artery disease (CAD), which may be treated with drug eluting stents (DES). Everolimus and zotarolimus eluting stents are commonly used. Newer generation biolimus and novolimus eluting biodegradable stents are becoming increasingly popular. Patients undergoing transplant surgery soon after the placement of DES are at increased risk of stent thrombosis (ST) in the perioperative period. Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor such as clopidogrel, prasugrel and ticagrelor is instated post stenting to decrease the incident of ST...

Thromboembolism prevention is a crucial factor determining both the natural outcome and outcome of intervention of stenotic atherosclerotic carotid artery pathology. Roughly 80% of all natural course cerebral ischemic events are caused by thromboembolism, versus 20% due to hemodynamic insufficiency. The risk of periprocedural cerebral (micro) thromboembolization during carotid revascularization is considered to be even higher, with a higher rate in carotid artery stenting (CAS) as compared to carotid endarterectomy (CEA)...

OBJECTIVES: The three direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) dabigatran, apixaban and rivaroxaban are now widely used in clinical practice. For patients requiring perioperative interruption of DOACs, heparin bridging is still under discussion. Here we show, for the first time, the influence of concomitantly used DOACs and heparins on laboratory assays. METHODS: For spiking experiments, 10 healthy donors and nine patients treated with DOACs were investigated. The measurement of DOACs and heparins was performed with routine methods on the ACL TOP [HEMOCLOT(®) direct thrombin inhibitor (CoaChrom Diagnostica, Austria), COAMATIC(®) Heparin (Chromogenix, USA) calibrated with rivaroxaban, apixaban, unfractionated heparin (UFH) and low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), additionally PT reagent RecombiPlasTin 2G and aPTT reagent SynthASil (Instrumentation Laboratory, Germany)] and the DOACs were additionally quantified with liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry...

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is minimally invasive and thus has become a widely accepted treatment for gastric neoplasms, particularly for patients with comorbidities. Antithrombotic agents are used to prevent thrombotic events in patients with comorbidities such as cardio-cerebrovascular diseases and atrial fibrillation. With appropriate cessation, antithrombotic therapy does not increase delayed bleeding in low thrombosis-risk patients. However, high thrombosis-risk patients are often treated with combination therapy with antithrombotic agents and occasionally require the continuation of antithrombotic agents or heparin bridge therapy (HBT) in the perioperative period...

We present a case of impassable subglottic stenosis scheduled for tracheal resection and reconstruction managed by establishing a supraglottic airway. Despite careful preoperative evaluation, the stenosis was localized higher than anticipated, rendering conventional intubation impossible. Laryngeal mask bridging to cross-field ventilation was feasible and jet ventilation and cardiopulmonary bypass were available as emergency strategies. Surgery and emergence went uneventful. Perioperative considerations are discussed in this report...

Extubation has an important role in optimal patient recovery in the perioperative period. The All India Difficult Airway Association (AIDAA) reiterates that extubation is as important as intubation and requires proper planning. AIDAA has formulated an algorithm based on the current evidence, member survey and expert opinion to incorporate all patients of difficult extubation for a successful extubation. The algorithm is not designed for a routine extubation in a normal airway without any associated comorbidity...

BACKGROUND: The role of hepatic hemodynamic modulation in the development of "small-for-size" syndrome (SFSS) after extended hepatectomy (EH) or living-donor liver transplantation is still controversial. We have designed an experimental study to investigate the effect of hemodynamic parameters of the liver circulation on the development of SFSS after EH in a porcine model. METHODS: Eighteen pigs were randomly divided into two groups: group A has received EH (75%-80%) without splenectomy, and group B with EH and simultaneous splenectomy was carried out...

BACKGROUND: To date, there is still a debate how to deal with patients receiving antithrombotic agents prior to surgical procedures on the skin. OBJECTIVE: To prospectively assess complications after dermatosurgical interventions, especially bleeding, depending on anticoagulation therapy. METHODS: Patients underwent surgery consecutively as scheduled, without randomization, whether or not they were currently taking anticoagulants. Nine institutions of the DESSI (DErmatoSurgical Study Initiative) working group documented patient data prospectively on a standardized study sheet prior to and after 9154 dermatosurgical interventions...

REVIEW
Philippe Kerschen, Violaine Planté-Bordeneuve
Treatment of transthyretin familial amyloid polyneuropathy (TTR FAP) must be tailored to disease stage. Patients with early stage disease (i.e., without major impairment in walking ability), especially younger patients, should be referred as soon as possible for liver transplantation (LT) in the absence of major comorbid conditions. LT remains the most effective treatment option to date and should be offered to these patients as early as possible. Bridging therapy with an oral TTR stabilizer (tafamidis or diflunisal, according to local access to these treatments) should be started as soon as the diagnosis of TTR FAP is established...

A pediatric artificial lung (PAL) is under development as a bridge to transplantation or lung remodeling for children with end-stage lung failure (ESLF). In order to evaluate the efficiency of a PAL, a disease model mimicking the physiologic derangements of pediatric ESLF is needed. Our previous right pulmonary artery ligation (rPA-LM) ovine model achieved that goal, but caused immediate mortality in nearly half of the animals. In this study, we evaluated a new technique of gradual postoperative right pulmonary artery (rPA) occlusion using a Rummel tourniquet (rPA-RT) in seven (25-40 Kg) sheep...

Patients with atrial fibrillation have in large parts an indication for full anticoagulation. Practical problems develop when there is an additional indication for a platelet inhibitory treatment, so called triple therapy, in case of percutaneous coronary intervention or how to manage anticoagulation in case of an operation. Clinical studies are relatively limited. Essentially, an individualized approach is necessary taking into account the bleeding on the one and the thromboembolic risk on the other side. In this review we a give a pragmatic treatment approach with discussion of the recent literature...

INTRODUCTION: Estimation of residual rivaroxaban plasma concentrations may be requested before invasive procedures and some patients at high thromboembolic risk will have a bridging therapy with heparins when rivaroxaban is interrupted. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess the performance of the STA-Liquid Anti-Xa assay (STA LAX) and the low and normal procedures of the Biophen Direct Factor Xa Inhibitors (DiXaI) assay, in patients with and without bridging with low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs)...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have recently examined the risks of bleeding and of ischemic stroke and systemic embolism associated with perioperative heparin bridging anticoagulation in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. However, few studies have investigated bridging risks during vitamin K antagonist initiation in outpatient settings. METHODS AND RESULTS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted on individuals starting oral anticoagulation between January 2010 and November 2014 for nonvalvular atrial fibrillation managed in outpatient care and identified from French healthcare insurance...
