INTRODUCTION: The renal nephrometry scoring (RNS) system enables prediction the feasibility of nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) in renal masses. There is insufficient data regarding the outcome of robot-assisted NSS in tumors with RNS ≥10. We reviewed the trifecta outcomes of patients undergoing robotic NSS with high RNS and compare it with tumors of low and intermediate RNS. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our prospectively maintained data of all robot-assisted NSS were reviewed, and those with RNS of ≥10 were identified...

Trifecta valve is a 3rd-generation, stented bioprosthesis which is made from one bovine pericardial sheet. A 77-years-old male patient had undergone combine aortic valve replacement (AVR) using a 23-mm Trifecta valve and ascending aorta replacement for severe aortic valve regurgitation and ascending aorta aneurysm. The postoperative period was uneventful. However, he presented with dyspnea on effort and severe aortic valve regurgitation 31 months after operation. Re-do AVR with a new bioprosthetic valve was performed via 2nd sternotomy...

BACKGROUND: Valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve replacement is less effective in small surgical bioprostheses. We evaluated the feasibility of bioprosthetic valve fracture with a high-pressure balloon to facilitate valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve replacement. METHODS: In vitro bench testing on aortic tissue valves was performed on 19-mm and 21-mm Mitroflow (Sorin, Milan, Italy), Magna and Magna Ease (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA), Trifecta and Biocor Epic (St...

OBJECTIVES: : Small aortic annuli are challenging in aortic valve replacement. Prosthesis-patient mismatch, accompanied by high transvalvular gradients and small orifice area, is an often faced problem impairing postoperative outcome. The new TRIBIO bioprosthesis aims to enable enhanced haemodynamics, being increasingly important with decreasing annular size. This study compares ex vivo hydrodynamics of TRIBIO with 2 established bioprostheses in small annuli at different stroke volumes, simulating 'rest' and 'exercise', and evaluates haemodynamics of TRIBIO in a sheep model...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility of an internal suspension technique in retroperitoneal laparoscopic partial nephrectomy for the management of renal ventral tumors. METHODS: Between January 2013 and July 2016, a total of 145 patients underwent retroperitoneal laparoscopic partial nephrectomy with or without internal suspension technique. For patients who underwent internal suspension technique, the surgeons preserved the external fat of the renal tumor as a suspension traction measure when separating the kidney...

BACKGROUND: The Trifecta valve (St Jude Medical, Inc, St Paul, Minn) was approved for commercial use by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2011. Several isolated cases have been reported since then, describing early structural valve deterioration. We report a case series of 8 Trifecta valve failures, describing patients' clinical substrate and management, and the pathologic characteristics of the explanted valves. METHODS: Trifecta valve failure occurred in 7 patients (8 valves) receiving 19-mm (n = 2), 21-mm (n = 3), 23-mm (n = 1), and 25-mm (n = 2) valves...

BACKGROUND: Radical prostatectomy is a common surgical procedure performed to treat prostate cancer. Patient-reported outcomes after surgery include urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, decreased quality of life and psychological effects. Predictive tools to assess the likelihood of an individual experiencing various patient-reported outcomes have been developed to aid decision-making when selecting treatment. METHODS: A systematic review was undertaken to identify all papers describing tools for the prediction of patient-reported outcome measures in men with prostate cancer treated with radical prostatectomy...

Advancements in bioprosthetic valve technology have greatly enhanced the haemodynamic performance and long-term durability of tissue valves. These features, along with the key advantage of avoiding lifelong anticoagulation, have made bioprosthetic valves increasingly attractive for clinicians and patients alike. The St Jude Trifecta valve is a novel, bovine pericardial bioprosthesis with promising early data for performance and safety. However, no prosthetic valve is perfect and prosthesis failure can occur with even the most reliable and well-designed devices...

Thyroid nodules are common and their incidence has increased due to various factors. Systematic approach to the work-up of thyroid nodules is necessary to decrease overdiagnosis as well as over treatment. Applying the trifecta of history, physicial examination and high-resolution ultrasound (HRUS) as well as fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) with added TSH measurement is important in the work-up. HRUS is a central part in the diagnostic approach, being able to risk classify nodules and selecting nodules for FNAB...

Hydrodynamic performance of stented bioprostheses is far below that of the native valve. One of the reasons is that the internal diameter of the prosthesis is usually smaller than that of the native valve. However, other valve characteristics are also important in generating the pressure drop. We aimed to assess, in an ex vivo pulsatile mock loop, the hydrodynamic behavior of two bioprostheses, Trifecta and Mitroflow, to ascertain which geometric terms are limiting factors in hydrodynamic performance. At stroke volumes between 30 and 60 ml, Trifecta showed lower pressure drop, energy dissipation and valve resistance, and greater effective orifice area...

The aim of this study was to assess the ability of pre-and intraoperative parameters, to predict the risk of perioperative complications after robot-assisted laparoscopic simple enucleation (RASE) of renal masses, and to evaluate the rate of trifecta achievement of this approach stratifying the cohort according to the use of ischemia during the enucleation.From April 2009 to June 2016, 129 patients underwent RASE at our Institution. We stratified the procedures in 2 groups: clamping and clamp-less RASE. After RASE, all specimens were retrospectively reviewed to assess the surface-intermediate-base (SIB) scoring system...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of fellows' involvement on the peri-operative outcomes of robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analysed 216 patients who underwent RAPN for a small renal tumour. We stratified our cohort into two groups according to the involvement of a fellow surgeon during the procedure: expert surgeon operating alone (expert group) and fellow operating under the supervision of the expert surgeon (fellow group)...

BACKGROUND: Radical prostatectomy is curative surgical treatment of choice for localized prostate cancer. The objectives are cancer control, preservation of continence and preservation of sexuality, the combination of the three constituting the Trifecta. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess, through the analysis of the literature, the sexual outcomes according to surgical approach: radical prostatectomy by laparotomy (PRL), laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (PRLa) and laparoscopic robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (PRLaRA), when nerve sparing was practiced...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: "Trifecta" in partial nephrectomy consists of negative surgical margins, minimal renal function decrease and absence of complications. In the present article, our single-center robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) experience in T1b renal masses is reported in terms of strict Trifecta outcomes. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of patients with a tumor diameter between 4 and 7 cm (stage T1b), who underwent RAPN by a single surgeon...

Notwithstanding their wide exploitation, biological prosthetic heart valves are characterized by limited durability (10-15 years). The treatment of biological tissues with chemical crosslinking agents such as glutaraldehyde accounts for the enhanced risk of structural deterioration associated with the early failure of bioprosthetic valves. To overcome the shortcomings of the currently available solutions, adoption of decellularized biological tissues of animal origin has emerged as a promising approach. The present study aims to assess in vitro cardiovascular scaffolds composed of bovine pericardium decellularized with the novel TRITDOC (TRIton-X100 and TauroDeOxyCholic acid) procedure...

BACKGROUND: The risk of patient-prosthesis mismatch drives most surgeons to select the largest bioprosthesis possible during aortic valve replacement, but interactions between the native aortic annulus and valve prosthesis remain poorly defined. We examined the hemodynamic and functional consequences of oversizing contemporary bioprostheses in an in vitro model. METHODS: Three sizes each (21, 23, and 25 mm) of 5 aortic bioprostheses (Magna, Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA; Trifecta and Epic, St...
