OBJECTIVES: Valve-sparing operations and root replacement with a biologic composite conduit are viable options in aortic root aneurysm. This study was conceived to compare the early and mid-term results of these 2 procedures. METHODS: From September 2002 to November 2015, 749 consecutive patients underwent either a valve-sparing operation or a root replacement with a biologic composite conduit at 2 institutions. Propensity score matching was used to compare similar cohorts of patients in the overall population and in the ≤ 55 and ≥ 65-year age groups...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) after surgery or intervention is an important complication that may impact mortality, morbidity, and health care costs. Endovascular procedures are now performed routinely for a variety of pathologies that were traditionally treated with open surgery because randomized trials comparing endovascular and open surgery have shown at least equally good results and reduced complication and hospitalization rates with endovascular techniques. However, endovascular procedures have been associated with an increased risk for postoperative AKI, predominantly owing to contrast nephrotoxicity...

Dissection of the interventricular septum (IVS) is an extremely rare entity. An institutional echocardiographic database was retrospectively reviewed; 13 patients with a diagnosis of IVS dissection were found and confirmed by cardiac surgery. The purposes of the study were: to determine the value of transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in establishing the diagnosis of IVS dissection, and to detail the TTE features of IVS dissection.Thirteen patients with IVS dissection diagnosed by TTE, 8 males and 5 females were taken from 789,114 TTE studies performed between 1985 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Currently, the use of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is constantly increasing, whilst cardiosurgical back-up varies substantially. Besides immediate conversion to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) for periprocedural complications, SAVR for TAV failure may be necessary within the early or late post-implant course. The etiology, incidence, risk-stratification, management and outcome for both scenarios are largely unclear. The study aim was to provide details of the authors' experience of SAVR after the failure of TAVI at a single institution...

BACKGROUND: Aortic aneurysm (AA) is one of the most common causes of sudden death among elderly people. Although AA can be detected by non-invasive imaging techniques, there are no pharmacological treatments currently available to prevent progression at any stage of the disease. In this study we will explore the expression of IKKε in AA and its potential underlying molecular mechanism in AA. Material s and methods: Human aortic tissue was taken from 14 patients who underwent surgical repair of AA for the AA group and another 11 patients with normal aorta who underwent aortic valve replacement surgery for the control group...

OBJECTIVE: Bicuspid aortic valve anatomy is associated with ascending aortic aneurysm in approximately 50% of individuals and may lead to severe aortic regurgitation with aortic dilatation. Both entities may be treated by valve repair and root remodeling. The objective was to review the cumulative experience of 20 years. METHODS: Between November 1995 and December 2015, 357 patients (324 male; age 10-80 years; mean, 49 ± 13 years) underwent combined bicuspid aortic valve repair and root remodeling...

We describe the case of a 61-year-old male with a giant aortic root aneurysm associated with chronic aortic Type A dissection. The patient had been operated on 16 years before due to aortic annuloectasia with mechanical valve replacement. The patient underwent revision aortic surgery with a Bentall-De Bono operation with Svensson modification, using a #21 On-X Valsalva mechanical valve conduit. The postoperative course was uneventful.

A 57-year-old male with ascending aortic aneurysm, severe aortic regurgitation, and severe mitral regurgitation (MR) underwent ascending aortic replacement and aortic valve replacement. MR in this patient with normal mitral valve morphology was considered secondary to aortic valve incompetency. Consequently, a surgical approach to restore aortic valve function was adopted with successful MR resolution. This case report demonstrates the possibility of reversing early functional mitral regurgitation without surgically approaching the mitral valve...

A woman underwent ascending aortic aneurysm repair, aortic root and valve replacement, and coronary artery bypass grafting. Her postoperative course was complicated by stroke and status epilepticus. With supportive care and antiepileptics, her neurologic status improved. Intravenous heparin and aspirin were initiated. On postoperative day 13, she developed a large retroperitoneal hematoma with femoral neuropathy. Because her hematoma was not amenable to percutaneous drainage or surgical evacuation, and considering her comorbidities, a conservative approach was elected...

Transcaval access has been used successfully for over 200 transcatheter aortic valve replacements, large-bore percutaneous left ventricular assist devices, and thoracic endovascular aortic aneurysm repairs. This review teaches how to plan transcaval access and closure based on computed tomography. The main planning goals are to: 1) identify calcium-free crossing targets in the abdominal aorta along with optimal fluoroscopic projection angles and level with respect to lumbar vertebrae; 2) identify obstacles such as interposed bowel or pedunculated aortic atheroma; 3) plan covered stent bailout; and 4) identify jeopardized vascular branches such as renal arteries that might be obstructed by bailout covered stents if employed...
