The American College of Cardiology, Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and American Association for Thoracic Surgery, along with key specialty and subspecialty societies, have completed a 2-part revision of the appropriate use criteria (AUC) for coronary revascularization. In prior coronary revascularization AUC documents, indications for revascularization in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stable ischemic heart disease were combined into 1 document. To address the expanding clinical indications for coronary revascularization, and in an effort to align the subject matter with the most current American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines, the new AUC for coronary artery revascularization were separated into 2 documents addressing ACS and stable ischemic heart disease individually...

Reparative procedures are not always feasible in congenitally abnormal mitral valves. Mechanical prosthesis has been accepted as the choice for valve replacement in the pediatric population. This report describes a case of congenital mitral valve disease requiring mitral valve replacement. The infant's mitral valve annulus was not amenable to placement of the smallest available mechanical prosthesis. The approach used here for annular and subvalvular enlargement facilitated implantation of a larger prosthesis for congenital mitral valve replacement...

Noncommunicable diseases account for 38 million deaths each year, and approximately 75% of these deaths occur in the developing world. The most common causes include cardiovascular diseases, cancer, respiratory diseases, and diabetes mellitus. Many adults with acquired cardiothoracic disease around the world have limited access to health care. In addition, congenital heart disease is present in approximately 1% of live births and is therefore the most common congenital abnormality. More than one million children in the world are born with congenital heart disease each year, and approximately 90% of these children receive suboptimal care or have no access to care...

BACKGROUND: The Joint Council on Thoracic Surgical Education was formed in 2008 to improve cardiothoracic education. Resident learning has been a concern as reflected in declining passing rates on the American Board of Thoracic Surgery examinations. The Joint Council on Thoracic Surgical Education piloted a program to determine whether early exposure to a cardiothoracic curriculum through participation in a board review course would improve learning. The purpose of this paper is to report the results of this project...

BACKGROUND: Management of systemic semilunar valve disease in growing, young patients is challenging. When replacement is necessary, use of a pulmonary autograft is sometimes not possible for anatomic, pathologic, or technical reasons or due to parental or patient preference. We employed a stentless, porcine, full-root bioprosthesis in this setting and report our outcomes. METHODS: Over 9 years (2005 to 2013), 24 patients of mean age 13.1 years (range, 3 months to 20...

Anthropogenic disturbances often change ecological communities and provide opportunities for non-native species invasion. Understanding the impacts of disturbances on species invasion is therefore crucial for invasive species management. We used generalized linear mixed effects models to explore the influence of land-use history and distance to roads on the occurrence and abundance of two invasive plant species (Rosa multiflora and Berberis thunbergii) in a 900-ha deciduous forest in the eastern U.S.A., the Powdermill Nature Reserve...

BACKGROUND: We sought to define an accurate measure of thoracic surgical education costs. METHODS: Program directors from six distinct and differently sized and geographically located thoracic surgical training programs used a common template to provide estimates of resident educational costs. These data were reviewed, clarifying questions or discrepancies when noted and using best estimates when exact data were unavailable. Subsequently, a composite of previously published cost-estimation products was used to capture accurate cost data...

Although inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) can be found in virtually every major organ, cardiac origin is rare. After recently providing care to a child who presented with a significant myocardial infarction, interest in this rare tumor was piqued. We describe a comprehensive review of cardiac IMT, including information on nomenclature, epidemiology, clinical features, pathogenesis, gross/histological features, immunohistochemical profile, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. Fifty-seven cases were identified in the literature...

BACKGROUND: Geographic variations associated with surgical intervention for congenital heart disease are ill defined. This study uses a large clinical registry to assess frequency of surgical intervention for various infant congenital heart diseases overall and across US geographic regions. METHODS: Patients younger than 1 year of age in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Heart Surgery Database (January 2010 through June 2012) were included. Index operations were classified on the basis of seven major diagnostic groups and 10 specific diagnoses and were compared across geographic regions using a χ(2) test...

OBJECTIVE: The recently implemented integrated 6-year (I-6) format represents a significant change in cardiothoracic surgical residency training. We report the results of the first nationwide survey assessing I-6 program directors' impressions of this new format. METHODS: A 28-question web-based survey was distributed to program directors of all 24 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited I-6 training programs in November 2013. The response rate was a robust 67%...
